Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

I missed a few days reading this thread, so if this is a duplicate post, I apologize.

I just emailed Memebox about a missing item ( US shipment, and not a box) and I got the usual canned " We have received your message" email..I only have an email address for Memebox Global (Korea) so that's where the reply came from..

 

At the bottom of their email, there is a new ( to me) message. It says: Please be advised of the following:

 

Shipments to the US with the date of 1/23/2015 have not shown updates since 1/27/2015. This shipment is significantly delayed and we are currently working on getting these shipments out to you. If your question pertains to this shipment, we are already working on getting an update- which we will notify you as soon as we find out.

I wonder if the delays have to do with the LA port closure with several overseas shipments being held up due to labor dispute. I know there is a huge backlog at the port, several ships are waiting to get in. I know they did something to resolve the dispute but I don't think the ships are getting unloaded at this point at least not as fast as they need to be.

Can someone please send me the review rules for the restock boxes? I think I saw it on the addict page a couple of weeks ago, but can't find it now. Also the email address where you send the reviews. Thanks so much!

My last ever memebox is sitting at the post Office Depot ready for collection as was working yesterday so missed the postie. I do miss those pink boxes and the excitement of seeing new boxes. This thread was always buzzing with the latest box titles and unboxings but now its like the Marie Celeste. I miss memebox :(

Yeah, I'm pretty sad I can't get anymore memeboxes...it was good while it lasted :( I'm glad they are not shipping international anymore at this point - I have way too many skincare now and don't want to be stuck with more once I move later this year. Maybe in the near future, I'll be happy to by from them again (if they start int. shipping again).

Good day today....picked up last memebox (sad) but had a call saying daughter had won an iPad mini plus Shaun the Sheep goodie bag!!! REEESULT!

Was going to buy a refurbed one for her Christmas as she's always pestering to watch cbeebies on mine so now she'll have her very own AND my missing Innisfree order arrived (it had been sitting in the couriers car since Monday as I had been at work but he never thought to leave a note!). Also received an order of Wonka gobstoppers I'd ordered from ebay too - yum! Oh happy day :)

Does anyone know if there's a link on Memebox anywhere for the Seoul Style box ( from Korea)?

I just got mine today and all I can find on the site is " Whoops". I need to know a bit more about ingredients in a couple of products.. Thanks!! :)

Hi Ladies,

 

I have a question about a product that was in the Zero Cosmetics box, Nature's Friend SaeHaneul Eye & Nourishing Cream.

 

I've noticed mine will expire this year and I'd like to try to use it up but the tube is huge and definitely won't be done with just eye use. I vaguely remember that this could possibly have been used on the rest of the face, can anyone confirm that? and did anyone use it that way?

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated :)

Tbh any eye cream can be used elsewhere as most seem like thicker moisturisers. I would probably use them as a night cream or where you want more protection against wrinkles such as on the neck, forehead or anywhere liable to expression lines.

Yes you can use it anywhere :)  Most eye creams are the same as what you would put on your face and is essentially marketing genius.  The benefit is that many times they will be gentler because its going next to your eyes, they don't put irritating ingredients in it.

I'm using that cream right now (it's about half-empty), and I love it! Very gentle, very soothing, doesn't flake off, and no greasy foil. I sometimes use it all over my face, too, so you totally can.

@@GirlyGirlie, thanks for sharing the info from your email regarding the shipments that have been held up. I have one last global box I'm waiting on. It was the Fun Ingredients box, and I'm pretty sure it was shipped on 1/23. It never updated past "Origin Post..." (can't remember the exact wording, but I'm sure most ladies in this thread know what I'm talking about). 

 

I hadn't contacted Memebox yet, as I figured there wasn't much point until at least 30 days had gone by. After seeing this, I'll give it another week, but if I don't hear anything or see any movement by next Friday they'll be hearing from me! I'm just glad to know I'm not the only one still waiting on a box from Korea. I really wanted that box, so maybe there's hope yet.

It probably is. Wishtrend sent me an email about it today and I know my testerkorea package, which was shipped on 1/23, is still missing with no movement.

Welp, I just received my very last Memebox - Lucky 14. Of course I got the version I didn't want, #1. I supposed it's fitting that I received something underwhelming as my last hurrah, this way I can forget about it and move on. At least I'll be stocked up on hair masks, sleeping packs, and face creams until at least 2018.

Are people even getting points for reviews anymore? I have a couple boxes left to write about, but not sure if it's worth the hassle.

I got them the other week.    They still have the form up and I think they are still planning to honor it.

Got my last box the Valentines for you. Pretty pleased with the scents. I'm okay with it being my goodbye box. :) Am testing the products out~

 

Just waiting on my review event refunds and all will be fine.

I'm in the same boat as you waiting on my last global box, the Fun Ingredients box that shipped on 1/23. I emailed CS on 2/18 and this is the response I got:

"Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out to us! Right now we are noticing delays on all shipments that went out in late January. There seems to be a longshoreman strike along some ports in the US which has created a congested situation for shipments going through air cargo. We know these shipments are still going to reach their final destinations but we are unable to estimate how long shipment times will take. Last time this happened during the holidays, shipments were delayed by about an added two weeks. Customers began receiving their items around the 6th or 7th week after original shipment date.

Right now, we are trying to see if there is anything we could do on our end to move these along. If I have more information I will reach out to you."

Hopefully we get them soon!

Thanks for sharing this!  Apparently we WILL be getting them soon, as I just checked my USPS account, and my box is finally showing up in Flushing, NY! 

 

I have to say, as much as I miss the "old" Memebox, I will not missing trying to track down boxes that should have arrived weeks ago!
