Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

Sorry in memebox blank atm. That pic is forever indelibly inked on my psyche.

Add to that the fact that loo is an unfortunate last name and I am drawing a blank.

Ha ha ha! I lived in England for 4 years and when I hear the word "loo" I always think of the toilet.

there are loads I've had 4 new companies approach me, one is in australia and due to memebox going they have sorted out doing a deluxe box of 6 products as a buy as you want box not a subscription like they are organising for australia, i think it will become a nice little box, and it ships world wide ,to many countries ,uk and europe being the main,really looking forward to getting that box once it goes live, and 2 others are all looking at uk and europe as well, with he plan of it being as and when and a monthly only box with the odd special along the way, so I'm happy,

i think things have moved on and it will be interesting to see the types of companies and boxes that pop up.

 

im not missing them ,and the nail in the coffin was the changed lucky box 14 as that is not what i signed upto when i bought the bundle,months back, and I've just found my last golden ticket , gods sake,

oh, can you post those in the k-beauty forum? If they decide to ship to the US, I would be interested in looking at them :)

 I hope it's OK to post about newer Memeboxes. I finally got the Fun Ingredients Memebox and OMG, there are 3 excellent and one just fun products in here. I'm SO glad I ordered this- was on the fence for days about it and have been apprehensive about it arriving.

 

The TonyMoly banana hand cream is fun- I'm going over to BNK for more today.:)

 

HIghly recommend these face products for anyone with dry or sensitive skin without a lot of breakouts:

1) SkinAz Mozzarella Cheese Cream ( Like it better than Emprani)!!

2) Original Raw Honey Finger Essence- It's a huge bottle of honey- infused essence, but is very light weight. It feels like liquid silk on my face. :) . I guess the" finger" is in there because it's one of the few K- skin care products applied with the fingers from a nice large pump bottle? 

 

Also LOVE the multi- purpose Banana and Moringa Awesome Cream Balm-- probably not for face but for dry heels, knees, and the like.

I wanted the Holika Holika White Wine Sleeping Pack, so I got the Red one, of course. The Red Wine one is just not more moisturizing than the white, although they promote it as such. 

 

I also got the January Box. It's nice, and I'll eventually get around to using some of the products. I wasn't thrilled with the TWO photos on the Info Card regarding the 2 products which are tiny foil packets, while the full sized products are photographed. Seems like false advertising to me. Oh, well. No one ever died from foil packets, but I hate them.

Got my AND J value set today. When I opened the outer carton there was a brown box inside that said "Finco" and I thought they sent me the wrong value set as I thought there was another value set by that name. I'm glad it is what I ordered. Very nice boxes for the products. They are gold with a snake skin look and texture on the edges.

I received my shara shara box and I can say, the expiration dates are in the future - 2016 and 2017 - and it is a nice little set.    That is the one with the apple martini ampoule, which does smell like apples.  So, for those looking to use up their memepoints, that is one that is nice.  It has a rich cream in it, a lotion, the ampoule, the snail mask and a facial mist.

 

Also, if you are in the USA shop, I got the waterest tone up kit - and that stuff is amazing.  The essence is not oily, it absorbs quickly and I think this is a good essence for oily skin.   I am becoming a goodal fan.  Seriously, these products are great.  I know that there is a club clio website, but not sure if they ship internationally.

I really think most Korean beauty experts wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. They have a strong risk of damaging the reputation of a blogger as tbh they are shady

It amazes me how quickly  they just went downhill....and for what?  They were doing so well, despite the bumps in the road.

It's sad as their boxes (on the whole) were good. Yes there were a few howlers (I'll NEVER forgive them for the "Mystery crap") but most boxes had at least one or two products that were good or fun. They have an [email protected]le running the company though who seems hellbent on running it into the ground with dodgy competitions and promotions etc. its only a matter of time before they come under the radar with the US authorities and get whacked with a lawsuit or fines. Not like they haven't been warned either so they deserve all they get in that respect.

 

Had two boxes delivered so told my postie their wouldn't be many more to come..think he was a bit relieved lol!!

I am really disappointed by meme's decision but I can see why international shipping poses a lot of risks for a big company - they routinely flout customs laws by misdeclaring value (I know TK etc also do this but I don't think they have the same size customer base) and the bigger you get, the more attention you get. Then all the issues with damaged/missing/delayed shipments, and the fact that it is quite expensive to ship from Korea (much more than $6.99 for say 1.6kg) - I think the margin on the international stuff is quite low, and the customs issues present risks, and it just isn't attractive enough considering these factors.

 

Of course this does beg the question why you would bother selling boxes with minimal margins to attract a large international customer base, then unceremoniously dump them - and why you would routinely run dodgy/illegal competitions and break trademark law. Meme makes some terrible business decisions at times, perhaps because they grew too fast and didn't know how successful international would be when they thought of positioning it along those lines. Really they should be hiring a commercial lawyer as well as all these brand/guru people.

 

Intrigued by 'lucky' clearout box 14, which will be my last box, I will be amused by the surprise factor at least! I have a Smaug-sized hoard of K-beauty now so looking forward to just working through it and reviewing as I go.

I feel a bit sad parting with Memebox as well. Although they have bad CS and intentionally bad boxes sometimes, I have had fun with some good boxes and they have shown generosity sometimes too.

I was a K-Beauty virgin before Memebox, and now I'm a convert! (ok, addict) My routine before Memebox consists of 1 cleanser, 1 sunblock, and occasionally putting on night cream when I'm not tired. But now, I have 10+ steps each morning and night, and I even have multiple choice of products for each step.

 

I really like how Koreans view their skincare activites as fun and exciting, as opposed to a chore. And their packaging designs are just enjoyable.

Ultimately, no one knows the future of Memebox with their Loo's management, but I'm sure other Korean buying sites will enjoy increase in sales because of Memebox.

Hi all,

Has anyone tried any of the Guaam Method products yet?

That value set is calling out to me for some reason.

Is the memebox website acting wonky for anyone else?

Seems fine...nothing been added for days. No new boxes. Memebox ignoring international customers..yep, nothing changed.

I have to admit that it pissed me off when I saw the new box released was only for the USA.

 

Seriously.  They need to have some respect for all their wonderful, loyal International customers who have put up with their crap for the last year.  Either don't release any boxes until the 13th or make them available to everyone. Ugh.

@@Saffyra, I agree.  I felt that they should have done some great boxes for the last few days in the global shop.

Totally agree. They have 3 days to release new boxes for international...probably less than that as they want them all shipped by the 13th or so. Given that timescale, I can't see then releasing anything this weekend. Its already almost midday in San Fran and its Friday so today is probably the last day they CAN release something...and not hopeful.
