yup, i got mine this morning and it's already out for delivery (or whatever it's called with DHL)!  interestingly, they combined two boxes i ordered on two separate accounts (going to the same address) and i guess upgraded it to express.  i am totally happy with this!  i was NOT expecting to get two memeboxes within 3 days of when they were shipped!

 

speaking of which, cheriii, does your dhl tracking info list your entire address?  mine doesn't have my street address and i know some people have had problems with their addresses...

Ok, I got mine too but it's still in Korea. Anway, good to know it's been shipped. I slightly envy you getting yours so quickly with DHL, but we've had some trouble in Europe with DHL already so I'm glad they keep on sending ours through regular post.

Hehe just on a side note i think they now ship with express shipping when 2 or more boxes in your order ship on the same date, no matter which country (except Europe)

 

I was surprised because i thought they only do this for US customers! This time they shipped my boxes DHL from Korea to my city Hong Kong.

 

I hope you all get your box soon :)

I've tried to compile the price list! These things are hard to come by for non-Koreans! Gotta give meme props for that. Just crossing my fingers that they actually work~

 

 

 

 

COSRX all pure cleansing bar

Full sized item $9.50 for 2 (http://www.cosrx.co.kr/FrontStore/iGoodsView.phtml?iCategoryId=65&iCategoryIdMain=65&iGoodsId=0034_00017&iCurrentPage=1)

Memebox size 1x 

Price $ 4.75

 

Ciracle red spot cream 

Fullsized item $19.00 (http://www.cosrx.co.kr/FrontStore/iGoodsView.phtml?iCategoryId=65&iCategoryIdMain=65&iGoodsId=0036_00013&iCurrentPage=1)

Memebox size 30ml

Price $19.00

 

Dr.Young U-line clearing mist

Full sized item 140ml-$30.00 (http://stores.dr-young.net/u-line-clearing-mist/)

Memebox size 140ml

Price $30.00

 

LJH Cellabel M.C. Recovery Balm SPF 28 PA++

Full size 45ml  -- $47.12 (koreadepart)

Memebox size 5ml

Price $5.23

 

LJH 5a Control Cleansing Gel 

Full size 150ml- $39.32 (koreadepart)

Memebox size 15ml 

Price $3.92

 

Verikos tea tree modelling pack

Full size 230ml- $25.50 (gmarket)

Memebox size 25g

Price $?? (approx $3 I assume)

 

Total (6 item): ~$65.90

Tbh samples are usually free from the companies so prices are just approximates. I'm just happy for the red spot cream and mist, and getting to try the bb cream from LJH though sadly it is not full/deluxe-sized.

 

 

 

 

So it's not super wow for me lets be honest. I really want to see results and eat my words.  :P

Any idea how to use the Redpoint-X Teatree Modeling Mask Powder? The description says that you mix the powder with water to create a mask, but the pack gives you a small sample liquid subtance which says "Light Soother" which i don't know what it is for..? I also don't think it mentions it on the description. As it says 'Light Soother' i was thinking maybe this serum is for you to apply after the mask??

You should mix it with water about 1:1 parts and leave it on for 15-20mins (on a clean face). I only know abit of hangeul..but you can read it from the full-sized item's bottle label I think. Hope this helps. 

 

 

Edit:

I think I found the light soother! Its apparently a separate product. You can use it on troubled spots/ bumps when they appear to reduce redness. Or at least thats how I translate it..hmm. 

 

I haven't got my box yet. So I dont know if they included a spatula or not. I hope so tho!!

It included a big spatula in my box ;) and that light soither has been rather mysterious until now, since it's not on the product card!

I'm still waiting on my box as well! It is my first/only Memebox purchase thus far. I have so so many products of every type but I wanted to try out some Korean brands and this box seemed like a good one for my skin type! I have been keeping up with the Memebox threads and I know how much everyone seems to love everything so I hope I don't get sucked into the Meme vortex lol. I'm just trying to be frugal!

Can somebody explain the ratio to me? lol I'm kind of dumb with that... Is it like a table spoon of powder to a table spoon of water? (Just an example) thanks!

According to the package, it's 1[H20] : 0.8[powder]. And 1 g is equivalent to 1 mL of water.

 

So: the pouch is 25 g, which means you need 31.25 mL of water, which is 2.1 Tbsp.

 

Basically, it's a one-time use pouch, and you add ~2 Tbsp to it.

Hmmm since they included a aloe vera gel I wonder why they don't put the highly raved Nature Republic aloe vera gel but include the Welcos version (some nugu brand?)

 

But that's a huge bottle of ampoule! Usually they are 30ml or less and this has... 100ml O.o

I just recieved mine and i got this more for helping my son get into a routine for his teen hormonal skin . He doesnt get spots on his face only back so i want to keep it that way. You can never have enough aloe vera gel in the house for sunburn , sores. Spots . Etc.the ampoule os huge. The spot cream will be used. To be fair loving the red spot cream from previous box . And i finally got a cocoon soap to try out

Not loving that too. I don't get why they included;

 

 

another soap bar (the memebox version we got a better corsx soap)

the aloe tube--- its better for cuts and sunburns, not acne/blemish

repeated face mask sheets....gosh i had enough of repeats memebox!

 

I think its because everything is full-sized they cut down on quantity..

 

 

 

Gosh. I'm not buying superboxes anymore thats for sure.  :(

    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! 
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.  
    • Hi guys. Well I am a 37 year old woman and I looked into a Makeup Academy when I was in my early 20s but it was too expensive for me to afford at the time. A little background on me. I never had anyone to teach me how to do makeup. My mom was NOT a girly girl so I had no real feminine influence lol. I have never tried to do anyone's makeup because I lack the confidence. But I would really like to learn. My question is, has anyone here started Makeup school at a later age? Were you in school with mostly younger folks and how did it work out for you? I guess my question is, is Age a disadvantage in this industry? Thanks!
    • I think it's totally depned uopn your desire and passion that what kinds of hair style you are going to have hair styling is little bit hard for culry hair as compared to straight hair..
