How many emails is too many to use? Haha... I think I've used 5 so far to use various codes and coupons, and points on my main email. XD That trymemebox code is the DEVIL, the DEVIL I SAY. My friend introduced me to Memebox only about 2 months ago and I've already bought 8 boxes (Luckybox 5 and 9, Colorbox Blue, Cacao, Snail #2, Tropical Scent, Birthday (but for a friend!), and Cute) and thinking about the Aloe Vera one...

I use a lot (thanks to that trymemebox code), but today my sister wanted to buy the restocked whole grain and the code (on a new account) doesn't work anymore! :o

Well addicted or not you do choose nice boxes!

Sigh. I just tallied up the boxes I've received and ordered since my first purchase in late May (12 boxes in all, which is a lot for me), and I think it's time to join this thread. Every time I think Meme is starting to lose its luster, they release another intriguing box. I'm going to try hard to only purchase what I really want, which happens to be a themed box they haven't released yet (if they ever do release it, hopefully it will be at least a month down the road), and Mask 5 when that happens! I'm trying to remember that they seem to send the same types of products over and over, and really, how many moisturizers does one girl need?

you can also ask youself how much products does exist for skincare ;) at one point you'll have the full list and get only different kinds of those. so yeah 10 moisturizers, 10 ampoules, 10 eyecreams, 10 etec etc etc ;)

I only have 4 of my 12 boxes so far; between those and some other subs I have about a trillion moisturizers and eye creams. But you're right, Korean skin care has so much more to offer in terms of products and so I'm really hoping for more essences, ampoules, toners, and cleansers in my future boxes! And Memebox can send me as many sheet masks as they want; they're so easy to use up and my skin loves them.

 

Also, I keep meaning to tell you what a pretty name Marjolein is. Oh, and there's a character in Dragon Age with your name, but she isn't nearly as nice and sweet as you are! ;)

Which ampoule did you get? I really like them too. Also have a question, what is the difference between essence, serum and ampoules? Can you use them together all at once? I usually just use serum, then my cream.

I discovered Memebox on June 9th. Since then I've purchased 9 boxes (and received 2). I already have storage problems and I have no idea what I'll do when I receive the rest of them - much less how long it will take me to use up all these products! But here I am considering Fermented 2. It really is like an addiction - what if I miss something amazing? How can I turn down $100 worth of products for $30? At least I have all of you here to talk to about it. :P

Everyone is correct that this thread does not do much to actually help with addiction. I have all the problems I (and others) have mentioned, but I cannot stop. Maybe if we start talking more about the downsides to buying tons and tons of Memeboxes?  :unsure:

I have just removed temptation for thirteen days. Moved money into savings and if I want a box I have to think carefully about it as I have to move it bk

Right now I think I have myself talked into nothing unless they release Snail 3. C'mon, Memebox, I started buying too late to get a snail box and I want one!

I have boxes coming until October, but I saw that the new global box hit (for shipping in November, really?). I kind of want it, so I need to convince myself I don't need it. Here is what I am trying to focus on:

 

1) I have drawers of stuff I have yet to try. I do not need more makeup, cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreens, or hydrating sprays

2) I have plenty of things I am not interested in trying that I could try to trade for stuff I want that I didn't get 

3) There are some things I want that I can't get in a Memebox. I am lusting after the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders and the Lorac Pro 2 palette. At $30 a pop with shipping (sometimes more for the superboxes), I could have put my $ towards those things.

4) In my experience, it's hard to sell Memebox products I don't want on eBay, and it's not easy to trade those products to people who don't also buy Memeboxes. if I am mostly limited to trading products with people who get Memeboxes too, there's not much to trade for but other Memebox products. If I already get all the products, there isn't that much I want to trade for from Memebox. 

5) I don't have room! Full size products are awesome, but it takes me awhile to go through them, and the ones I'm not using yet take up a lot of space. 

6) Blogging about the boxes I get aren't an excuse because everyone has a beauty blog and everyone blogs about Memeboxes. It's not exactly the type of content that drives people to your site (not trying to insult other beauty bloggers, just saying I shouldn't use that as a reason why I need more Memeboxes hahaha). Hell, I could do a ton of posts reviewing all the products I've gotten so far!

I don't have as many products (only gotten a couple boxes so far) but I agree with how it'll be harder to trade unless the other person knows/wants Memebox stuff.

 

I only got the Scrub box last week, and I think it'll be my last box for a while. I have like 7 boxes coming through September and they cover such a wide range of products I won't need any more. Kind of wanted the Global 17 but then I saw it wasn't shipping until NOVEMBER. That's just too far away for me to care about it. :P

Ugh I just caved and bought the bundle of the all eyes box + the earth and sea cosmetics.  I am also waffling on buying #17 global but NOVEMBER is a LOOOOONG time away (of course, I said the same thing back when Global #14 came out and I'm kicking myself in a rear for not grabbing it).  Stop making good boxes MEMEBOX!  LOL

I love that I posted that I was done buying boxes and then I got the Aloe box like two hours later when I saw those points in my account. XD Damn you, Memebox!

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
