Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

Just received my "mystery box" - seriously!? What a lot of utter crap. A waterless shampoo (that I'll never use), BB cream (shara shara - who else), underarm white peeling perfume packs that I won't use as I've sensitive skin and finally, the goat milk soap bar that I think everyone has been sent and stinks...only had the box open for 3 or 4 minutes and I've a raging headache from the smell so that'll be headed for the bin. Total waste of money.

 

Only redeeming thing - the pouch box arrived at the same time and has the pisteo which I like.

 

While part of me is sad memebox is stopping the international sales, another part of me will not miss the rubbish they shove in some of the boxes. Can you tell I'm not happy with the mystery box lol!! Even if they'd have put a hand cream, a lipcrayon, some cream of some sort and something else I'd have been happy but this?!! Nope, not amused.

Isn't it just!

 

I mean, there is NOTHING in the box I'd have bought myself so that $19 plus shipping straight in the bin. I can't even be bothered trying to sell the stuff. The shampoo "may" be ok for daughter who hates getting her hair washed and the BB cream "could" be ok but the other two...gah!? Even if there had have been one really great item I'd have been happy but 4 duds!? Yuck...just....yuck!

In November I ordere lucky box bundle 12-14. I received the first box and have been waiting for a shipping update for the next which was Supposed to have been shipped January 24. This am I fired off an inquiry and being the pessimist that I am, fear if the other 2 boxes ever show up they will contain used toilet paper.

I'm so confused by that email. I don't want my commission in points, I want paypal. I've come to terms with the end of memebox and I've cut my ties. Nothing else is being spent there. So, do I do nothing or do I have to request my payout in points and then wait until the 10th to fill the form out to convert it to cash? 

 

I'm going to email them to ask, hopefully I'll actually get an answer. 

I was ridiculously confused as well. I sent them an e-mail that was basically like, "WUT....HOW DO I GET MONEY I DON'T WANT POINTS" lol

 

The last thing I want is points right now.

I sent one too. It seems silly to request the commission in points, just to then request the points be converted to cash. I'm not buying anything else from them. They broke up with me, it's time to do the exchange of personal belongings.

Well unless they release something absolutely fabulous between now and the 10th Feb (that's unboxed as not taking any more risks with "mystery" type boxes!), put my last order in - the shara shara season 2 value set as was pricing out some of the items and they are cheaper. Wanted to try the apple ampoule thingy so thought, why not as also get a few extra bits and bobs. Also wanted to end the relationship on a more positive note - though the valentine bundle will likely be the last to arrive. Still, didnt want that ultra crap mystery box to be the thing I remember most from memebox..

 

Trying to be positive...

Dunno why but I have left things in the cart for days. Could be coz if they decide to do the final up yours I sure do not want to lose any more money. This lucky box no show is a pisser especially since they put up one last night or whenever and it is sold out. Condolences to anyone who bought it coz it is like playing Russian roulette and chances are if the gun doesn't fire you will may receive a heap o'cow pies.

I am really hoping they put the stuff from the international shop in Luckybox 14, rather than their mystery box stock. I guess that makes no sense though since the stock is one and the same. I would just rather get something nice as my last Memebox, and go out with a neutral view of the company. It would be such a kick in the face to get garbage and cpm2 leftovers as a parting gift (that I'm paying for).

Naught naughty Memebox!!! Just looking more closely at the pouch box and there are items that clearly state NOT FOR RESALE or FREE sample. Yes its samples but memebox should not be charging $12 for these items but include them as "extras" in boxes with full sized products...like that steaming pile of horse manure that is the mystery box.

My Thanksgiving Day for me restock is taking a U.S. tour. It left NJ 2 days ago and arrived in CA today. That's a long way back to NC. Guess I won't see that box for a while.

Ohhhh that would totally make sense, actually! And that would explain why there are three versions--they don't have enough of everything to make one run. Hmm it really is roulette... Some of that stuff was nice, but do I trust Memebox? hmm

I'm so mad at Memebox, not just for the usual reasons, but because I wanted that nice foufy Meme blush brush, but now I don't want to buy anything from them due to my Memerage. I think about that brush each morning when I put on my makeup and I shake my fist at the Meme people, getting in the way of my brush love. urgh

I want my money too! This is very unfair. How dare they changing rules so often? So what should I do? Wait or do request? I have no idea and it annoys me.

USA doesn't need to do anything to get their cash. Only if you want your money turned to points or your current points converted to cash.

 

International do have to fill out a form either way. @@Malaperelka Fill out the form to get your money. It's not unfair. The change is a good one because it allows International customers and affiliates to get points if they want them before the 13th. Don't worry, you'll get your money.

 

I'm mad that they put up #14 and don't even have any to sell. Why even bother?!

A lot of boxes do it, they include free samples... and then they claim that you pay for the service not the products...

For those who want paypal instead of points, you still have to request your payout in points. Then you fill out the form asking to convert all your points to cash. I'm just going to wait for my last commission to be completed and then I'll request. I have to wait for the money anyways, so might as well just do it all at once. Hopefully the commission is processed the same day the boxes ship (or earlier). I don't want to risk cutting it too close to the 20th to get my paypal.

@AlexZ the only reason in not really annoyed about it is they included the Pisteo serum stuff (5 bottles) and I really like that so made it worthwhile as a box...the mystery box on the other hand I am angry about. They basically dumped what they couldn't sell as a full box so I'm worried about the valentine boxes and seeds boxes as have a feeling those will also contain leftovers from what's left in the warehouse. I sincerely hope I'm wrong and that they will be awesome but memebox seems to be one disappointment after another at the moment and would not put it past them!

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
