Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

My search Seoul box came today too. Happy Friday! I love getting boxes on Fridays :) The weird thing is that I got a notification that the cleanser I had ordered was out of stock yet it was in my box. My search Seol items look like they are the same that you all have gotten (the Leaders masks and the blush).

I generally use the VIP points to grab an XO item since there is also a free shipping code for them for VIP members.

I hadn't thought of that, good idea.

Did anyone ever hear of the Botanic Farm line that is now on the site?

Some of the products, like the Black SoyBean Milk Pudding Sleeping pack look really interesting!

 

I tried to google the brand but didn't come up with much.

@LisaLeah  I haven't heard of it, but yeah, that sleeping pack is interesting, as is the cleanser.   I wish memebox would have done a Botanic Farm box :)

so, Botanic Farm is part of cosmax, which now has a plant here in the USA

Should Cosmax mean something to me?

 

Thanks for googling. And yes agree about a BF box!

@LisaLeah  Cosmax is a huge player in Korean skincare and they just took over a plant in the USA that was L'Oreal's.

Great to know!

So we should probably be getting more interesting Korean brands on Memebox. (fingers crossed)

 

I've always wondered about foreign companies that manufacture in the US though. Do they use all the same ingredients etc? Here they will have to deal w/ the FDA etc. For example I could swear the No7 Skincare I get in the UK is better than the No7 I can get here. Same is true w/ European perfumes. Due to the fact in Europe, France in particular, they can use certain whale by products to preserve the scent, that aren't legal in the states. Which is why fragrances purchased in France can have more depth than what you get here. (my facts may be off on which by-product they use, but I do know it is some kind of ingredient that isn't legal here)

Then again, I would imagine the laws are the laws whether something is manufactured here or simply sold here.

Sorry for the circular questioning....I don't think I properly caffeinated today. I have a bit of mind mush going on.

I got the same email, besides some of the masks, both the Gold and Diamond sleeping packs look really interesting.

Between SNP and Botanic Farm, Memebox is looking a little bit like Memebox today.

Lots of new stuff added lately, I feel like they listened to what was said during the phone surveys they did. I know I asked for the unknown new to me brands.

 

Now to make a list of everything I want to buy

My thoughts exactly about the products being manufactured here in the USA vs. Europe. I don't think it's the same stuff even though it's the same brand. Whenever I see "made in France or Italy" I jump all over it because I always think it's a superior product then than the ones made here. It's the European in me that likes European and foreign things in general. Not saying that made in the USA things are bad, they just seem to be different especially if manufactured here by the same brand vs outside of USA.

I'm not getting either of the new boxes since it says there is makeup in them. I'll wait until spoilers come out to see what's in them.

I am in love with the orange bloom quad!

I have fallen in serious like w/ the Doctorcos Amino Acid Sheet Free Mask.

I used it as a mask pack (on the Meme site they say you can also use it as a sleep pack or moisturizer)

and I am really impressed with it so far.

My skin really looks brighter and feels much smoother.

 

It feels really nice and cooling while it's on. It's very 'watery' and turns to droplets on your face,

yet it's not overly hydrating so I think it would work nicely on all skin types.

It would also be good for the warmer months.

 

Anyway, if interested there are a lot of really positive reviews for it on Amazon.

That is what convinced me to buy it.

 

I also picked up the Blithe Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum, because it seemed really interesting.

I wish I didn't.

It doesn't seem like it's anything special or does much at all.

 

But the Doctorcos is a hit!

Yea i heard that the Laneige products sold at Target are not the same as the ones you buy in Korea?  Has anyone looked into this? Maybe there was a thread here that ive missed. I'm a new MUT member

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
