Memebox Addiction Support Thread

Recommended Posts

@  Start up an ebay account lady!  Sell that stuff for money!  Then you can buy more :D  No, I'm serious.  You should.  Do it.

 

So, I've been getting a lot of stuff and I am not kidding... I only have one face and its pretty small... So I've been putting it all over :D  My legs are practically ten years old they've had so much anti-aging goodness slather on :D

 

My elbows, heels and knees are perfectly exfoliated.

 

The lastest Sleeping Pack I got has moisturized my arms very nicely.  No red bumpy upper arms for me!  I mixed it with the Propolis Ampoule, too :D

 

Might as well use it for something so it doesn't sit in the drawer, right?!

I actually use rich creams (too rich for my oily face) on my neck, arms and legs as well.    If I cannot swap it or sell it, I will use them on the parts of my body that aren't an oil slick!!

sadly i havent had a week of no buys but I know they may release points for the public holiday in Korea and waiting to see if correct.

I have never been like this with anything else although I buy ahead on my monthly boxes.

Ohhh I wonder if they will dole out points of their upcoming holiday! I will definitely be on high alert right before and after!

I got the three (green tea, pore care and night care) and I was a little disappointed...like the excitement is wearing off I may end up canceling other boxes...

True story: I haven't received a box and I am feeling addicted.  They keep giving me crazy amounts of points which makes the boxes like TEN TIMES more attractive to buy.  I have like 5 boxes coming for me over the summer/into early fall.  I cannot let myself order any more until I receive my first two boxes.

I also have waaaaay too much stuff from Memebox now... like drawers full of stuff. It's gotten to the point where it's stressing me out more than exciting me since I have no room for all of it! I still have a lot of boxes coming to! Now, I did discover some stuff that I absolutely love, but how many eye creams do I really need (for example)? I did try listing some of it on ebay, but it just doesn't seem like there's a huge market for the stuff. I even cancelled pretty much all the rest of my subscription boxes too! I actually kind of feel like a hoarder right now!  :blush:

That's exactly how I feel. I have like what, 10 eye creams. a bunch of moisturizers and the list goes on. I went through my drawer today and found stuff I forgot I even got from MEMEBOX. I think the addiction is dwindling down, and I will just stick to trading stuff with other members now, maybe the odd box here and there. :)

So far I've bought and received 17 boxes and I still have 14 coming! Which is an awful lot of stuff! There's no denying I'm addicted and it's so hard for me to find any more place in my house to keep all the coming cosmetics. Luckily, these are the only beauty boxes I buy and I pretty much stopped shopping for cosmetics. I also think I'm getting better at controlling myself because I don't feel the need to buy each and every new box immediately. Recently, I've really tried to limit my purchases to the boxes I know I really, really want. Unfortunately, with so many new choices Memebox is providing, there's a good chance I'll always find sth new I want/need.

I'm the same. I've received 14 with 15 still to come. I had a huge "spares" pile before memebox, but now it's outta control.

 

Like others. I think I've reigned in my Pokemon way of thinking and aren't buying a bix now unless it screams at me (like the bubble box). Really tempted by the cacao one though......

 

I think I'll always get the global ones though, because they always seem to be phenomenal!

I've been going for the themed ones, which I am glad to see that that some of them are globals.  I do think that the globals can be a better value - after comparing my luckybox  5 (which is like a global in many ways) and superbox green tea 15.

 

my breakdown is as such

 

luckybox #5 - luckybox - but I will consider a global because it is similar
Green Tea - superbox
Honey - superbox
Office Essentials - global
Color Box Blue-  global
Grapefruit Scent box -global
Footcare- superbox
Oriental -   global

Milk -  global

Whole Grains - global

Aloe Vera - superbox
Herbal - superbox
Mask #4 - global
Chocolate Box - global
Bubble Pop - superbox

 

so 6 superboxes, 9 globals

 

I am a theme person with memebox!!  One day, I will take the plunge and purchase a global that isn't a theme :D

 

 

ladies - I thought I had a lot!!  But remember, these purchases all began on May 11th - lol.  How long have you all been purchasing from memebox?

Well, I started in January so you're definately a faster buyer than me! LOL

However, I think the excitement wears off a bit with time so I control myself now more than before. So there's a chance you'll be purchasing less with time, too  ;)  ;)

I am in the same boat as you only mine started around April 20th.

 

The list is thus

 

  • Memebox #12
  • Memebox #13
  • Memebox #14
  • Milk Global
  • Cacao Global
  • Mask Edition #3 Global
  • Mask Edition #4 Global
  • Rose Scentbox Global
  • Night Care Superbox
  • Honey Superbox
  • Burst of Color Superbox

So that is 8 Global 3 Super.  Also I made like 3 accounts to get as many points possible and broke up the orders amongst the accounts for maximum savings.  I also made sure to get the boxes that would ship on the same day on the same account.

 

And yes, I totally broke my no-buy because cacao box.  Damn you memebox.

Id be interested in the curl creams

I dont have a addiction yet. I  get one memebox a month.

About the hoarding, if it were  me, Id give them out as gifts to family , neighbors or co workers,   during birthdays and  holidays  make them a  bath/spa  makeup gift basket.

 

I have pre teen girls in my neighborhood that are  friends with my girl, So every birthday , easter, I make baskets with nail polish, handcreams, perfumes.

 

Memebox Ive received:

5.2, 7,  11, Luckybox restock

 

Cacoa (chocolate box)

ordered.

Hi everyone!

I made an account here so I could find other fellow addicts T_T. I've had only four boxes arrive so far (Memebox 8, Superbox 19, Superbox 20, Ten Minute Box) and I don't even remember which ones are coming any more because despite my desperate attempts to not order click check out, I totally blank out and accidentally order more. So when my memebox packages arrive I'm completely surprised at least?! :D" D: ;___;

 

I am currently struggling to not order the collagen box and the cacao box. MEMEBOX WHY DO YOU HAVE TO RELEASE SO MANY AMAZINGLY THEMED BOXES?! WHY?!

I've come to realize that all the $$$ I spent on memeboxes lately, I could've bought the chromebook laptop I've been wanting. I'm borrowing right now so my bro really wants it back. I decided to let him change my paypal password so I can't access it. I've got more eye creams and moisturizers than I can count and only 1 face to put it on. Mom's getting half of those. And frankly, really only the global boxes are exciting me when I open them up. The other ones are nice, or more so the idea of them. I ordered the global 11-16, so will be continuing to get those, but will lay off the other ones. That cacao one is tempting, but I know I'll be a bit disappointed when I actually do get it, so it has to be a no-go.

Saving up can be hard, and over spending is easy.  Try allocating a set amount towards Memebox each month . Say what? 3 Memebox's @ 23$ = 70$ + shipping, but there's usually a shipping discount or points, so 70$ each month or LESS goes towards Memebox each month, and than save the rest, or spend less on Memebox. Stay away from the Superboxes if you have to, because usually the regular Memeboxes are the best for your money. That's what I will be doing this month, spending only 70$ on Memebox, or less, because I have a trip to Dubai next year. Even like another hobby outside the home can really stop the cravings for Memebox. :) Ive gone about 1 month without purchasing a Memebox, but they just released a new payment processor, so I had to activate a new spending plan, just in case I started to spend 500-600$ JUST on Memebox's each month, which is just outrageous.

o/t Dubai?  How fun!  Is it for business or pleasure?  Have you been before?  I love hearing people's trips around the world!

 

how does this new payment processor work?  I use paypal with no problems, but I did notice that new option...
