Could someone send me a Memebox referral link? I have quite a few things I would like to get soon and would appreciate the 20% off. Plus I figured somebody could benefit from referring me!

My package from Memebox came today! 

-Elizavecca Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid 97%

-PONY x MEMEBOX Pony Shine Easy Glam 3 Eyeshadow Quad #03 Orange Bloom

-PONY EFFECT Favorite Fluid Lip Tint #Simon Pure

-Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch - 24 ea

-Etude House Tint My Brows #2 Light Brown

 

I just finished peeling off the brow tint and they look great! I only lost a total of three hairs. The light brown ended up looking exactly like what I thought it would from the pictures I found. It works for me but I definitely don't think it looks brown. It's more of a warm light copper color which is exactly what I needed!

I love K beauty! I almost got the Sephora play! box when they took me off the wait list but then I realized I would rather spend my money on K beauty so I placed a MeMebox order! Yay! I got the summer essentials box and a baby feet peeling mask. I'm a little nervous about my skin randomly peeling but it should be worth it. They also had a free lotus sheet mask that I added to my cart. I've never tried a lotus one.

Memebox quietly backed out on the free shipping for everyone thing they announced less than a month ago. Now they charge more than before on orders below $35 :(

What a bummer @@pearldrop! Thanks for the info. I was just looking at some of the new masks on their site yesterday but didn't realize the shipping thing since I didn't add anything to cart and checkout.

I did another meme box order. And I'm not ashamed of it. I didn't even tell you about the one in October but I'm not going there. I got the that time of the month kit. Came with 5 sheet masks, cat ear headband and chocolate for $12. And the wacky wonders bag. which is a foot peel, mint tea tree toner, collagen jelly pack, jelly body wash, blackhead strip, snowflake whipping cleanser with whip maker tool for $30 but after a coupon and using my points I paid $.80 for the entire order!!! Merry Christmas to me.

Memebox has a new mask set for $20. It comes with a cute notebook too. I still have sheet masks to use but if I didn't, I would probably be considering ordering this. The carbonated mask is a good one too that is part of the set.

It looks like Memebox is phasing out Memeboxes. There's now no mention of them on their site. :(

oh wow. Thanks for the info! It's so strange that a company would change a business model so much when the old one seemed to work so well. When they first released their boxes and shipped them from Korea, they were amazing. The assortment of the boxes was outstanding which made their popularity grow so quickly. I loved ordering those boxes and didn't mind the wait. Then they changed their business and started shipping from the US with less amount of boxes available and now this. I wonder why the change when it seems like there is or was an audience and a need for how they were doing business before.

I guess they're making $150 million a year in sales although it says they still aren't profitable (yet). They expect to be profitable this year, though, moving away from subscription boxes to in house brands and brick and mortar stores. 

 

Interesting to note they got $66 million in venture funding in august.

I noticed before they remove the "Boxes" menu when they don't have any of the boxes in stock. They put the menu back once they have at least one box available. This may not be a sign that they are fazing boxes out, but I do agree that they have been introducing much less boxes in the past year :/

Hope they bring them back and at the similar price point they had in the past.

Looks like they have a new Me To Me box so I guess boxes are not out of the selection, at least not yet.

FYI, Memebox sent out the following email today:

 

 

March 7, 2017

We are announcing some upcoming changes at Memebox. On May 1, we will reveal a new way for you to discover and shop the entire world of Korean beauty with better content, including more ingredient and formulation information, education on your skin type, relevant reviews, and product videos. In order to do this, many of the products on our site will be sold and shipped to you by our partner retailers rather than by Memebox directly. As part of this change, all Memepoints and loyalty program statuses will expire on April 30, 2017, and we will honor all Memepoint redemptions on our site until then. In order to show our appreciation for you, we have added 100 Memepoints ($5) to your account, which you can use until April 30, 2017.

You will also start to see some exciting changes to our site between now and May 1. We'll be greatly increasing our product selection with links to shop with our partners, more available information, and new features that will help you save your favorite products. There's much more to come, so stay tuned!

Why are we doing this?

In the journey to provide you a fun and personable Korean beauty shopping experience, we have enjoyed making you smile -- from cute, fun packaging to introducing new holy grails into your beauty routine. More and more, we’ve heard you voice some challenges. You feel indecisive about products because you’re not sure which is best for your skin. You’re unsure how your skin will react to new and perhaps “strange” ingredients. You don’t fully understand a product because instruction and ingredient labels are in Korean.

We see these as opportunities to be a better beauty partner. We believe beauty information should be smart, simple, and personalized. We want to make beauty information more accessible, reliable, and actionable so we’re taking big steps to make this happen.

This will also have a positive impact on our in-house brands, Pony Effect, nooni, and I’M Meme. Through engaging more with you, we’ll have better feedback to give our brand teams to innovate new products you need at the right time. We can also increase our availability across multiple channels, giving you more options to shop for our brands which will remain available for sale directly online and offline, even after May 1.

As always, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude for entrusting us to be a part of your beauty journey. We could not have grown Memebox into what it is today without you. We remain committed to becoming your favorite destination for discovering beauty, and we're excited to take this next step with you.

Thank you,

Dino Ha, CEO

You can refer to our FAQ here. For any other questions you may have, you can contact our awesome MemeSupport team via email at [email protected]. We’ll be more than happy to help you!

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
    • Hi, lottie. How would you be able to dry brushes that fast? Mine take a day to dry
