Memebox Addiction Support Thread

Recommended Posts

I got my first memebox this summer, and now I am hopelessly addicted. I'm excited to find a support group, or more likely, an enabling group. 

I will say we try to support each other but we ended up being an enabling group.

I was feeling all proud of myself because I've resisted buying Honey #2 and Yogurt. Then I decided to check out testerkorea....My cart is now full of masks and tiny cute samples. Going to go back and weed some of the stuff out and see if it's even worth ordering once I add shipping costs in.

Hmmm, that makes me think that a Mini Memebox with lots of those little mask/sleeping/bubble/mud packs might be fun!

Yes, but this is an addiction support thread, not an enabling thread ;):P LOL

I bought a ton of boxes even though I said I wouldn't. Now I am seriously holding off for awhile unless there is a must have box for me (not sure what that would be) and I have enough Memepoints to make it less than $10.

I think (unless the points are about to expire), you can hold on enough to get the next box for free. Maybe a short pause would help regenerate your love for memeboxes. (trying hard to not enable here)

See, I'm being enabled to look at testerkorea now!

 

I missed Honey 1, which turned out to be awesome, so you bet I got Honey 2. I am deciding on Yogurt and Cafe. They sound interesting, but I have a ridiculous amount of memeboxes, I'm even backlogged on reviewing them.

I'm holding off as well. I have no where to put anymore products!!! I'm seriously stocked, I might have to sell most of this stuff at the woman's show coming up lol. When I get a box, I'm excited and than after I toss it to the side, and than figure out where I'm going to stash it. I went through my drawers last night, and was like "WHAT, when did I get that?!" seriously , I need to stop buying these box's because its past an obsession now. I think of it as an necessity now, in the wrong kind of way, which is not right. I was even contemplating cancelling all my recent orders, which is about 105$ (not much) but still. I figured I would leave those alone, and stop from here on out, and only purchase a box that interests me when a spoiler /unboxing is revealed/ restocked.

 

Christmas is also coming up, and I have 19 CLOSE relatives/family to buy for +my daughter and fiance.. oh joy...I can't be greedy no more lol

Lols, probably you shouldn't cancel because once you do, you'll start feeling empty and wanting to buy more. Just hold off buying unless it is one that you really wished for. 

Xmas and The joy of having a huge family!!  :P

Take my advice.  If the box is initially posted for $20 or less on the pre-VIP sale, it's probably crap.  At least that's how it's been in my experience.  As you will notice, the Luckyboxes and Global boxes never go on sale.  And the boxes that sell out fast and have some good value to them are rarely re-released, if ever (e.g., the Fermented 1 box, the older/better Global boxes, Cute Wishlist 1, Gangnam Style, etc.).  These are the boxes Memebox depends on to snag new customers with false hopes.  Also, if a box doesn't sell out right away because sales are low, then the chances of it having a good selection of high value items are slim (with the exception of the Bubble Pop box, which most people probably ordered in mid-July only after Memebox posted on Facebook that it would contain over $190 worth of products, despite sending out a product card reporting $173 worth of products at inflated prices and subsequently deleting their post).  Even their spoiler products sometimes fail to make it into the boxes.  Before you order a box, ask yourself if you could buy any of the products u REALLY want/need after you see the unboxing...  Chances are, anything worth purchasing can be found online for a discount, or at the very least, from other Memeboxers selling their overstock.  Buying a $25-40 box with unknown items doesn't necessarily mean you will like or use all of them.  Therefore, you are better off waiting to see what's in the box and then purchasing whatever you like for the same amount of $ you WOULD HAVE spent on the box.  The only difference is, you will actually use the products and acquire only what you WANT.  IMO, stick to the monthly global boxes and/or Luckyboxes, and you should get your fill of the best products Memebox has to offer. Also, keep your eyes peeled for hints about repeat products from prior boxes, like with the "Thumbs Up box," or Luckyboxes, where the boxes mostly contain products you've ordered already.  I started thinking this way, and have been able to limit my purchases to 3 or less boxes per month (including the box I receive as part of the #11-16 Global box package purchased several months back).  Hope this helps :)

Oh, gosh. Saw the Spoilers below for the Hand and Nail care, decided I needed to keep my hands and nails looking pretty through the upcoming winter ( although we don't have much of a winter season, truth be told).

 

Well, then I realized that if I just added one more small-ish box the free shipping code for one box would go into effect.

So, I added the Superbox Brow box because I like " power brows". :)

Now, I'm realizing that I got two very specialized boxes and probably need to add a couple of general- care boxes too. ( I've already bought 3 boxes this week, this makes 5 )and it's time I admitted that I am addicted.

Lol, you just wanted balance, that's no problem!

 

The brow box sounded good, but I am in love with my dipbrow, although I wish it was lighter.

I ALWAYS wanted that Anastasia of Hollywood big kit with the stencils... Like I could stencil on big brows and get them even? HA HA. No way I could..

The upside of this box to me would seem that the Korean eye beauty is for full brows. I had really big brows, but years of professional waxing have made them just ordinary. 

I'm hoping for NO Tweezerman- just maybe stick on stencils and some powder, a pencil and setting gel ( A Tweezerman deluxe size sells for more than the box price). 

 

OMG-- What IF this is the box they put the WAX HAIR REMOVER in???  :w00t:

Hey guys I'm not an meme box addict but I've been thinking of trying them and I thought what better way than to ask you all if I should or shouldn't. I'm leaning waaaay toward the should category but what advice can I get from the meme box AA group before hand lol

@mybeautifulstyle  if you go down the memebox route, you will find yourself ordering more!!  lol

 

What are you looking for?   If you want the best bang for your dollar, I recommend a global box, which is their monthly boxes - they are 23.00 + shipping.  

 

Themed boxes are also nice, but I have also found that the "superbox" is not that great of a value, but you do get full sized products - however, what memebox may consider full size is debatable - lol

 

Note that if you do not get a box that is ready to ship now, you will be waiting several weeks before your box ships (depending on the ship date - some globals have a future date of Jan 24, 2015) and then it can take 2 - 3 weeks to get to you standard shipping.

 

Look around on people's blogs - a lot of us who post here in the memebox forum post discount codes and stuff, so you can use the $5.00 promo coupons with your box - there are 2 types $5.00 coupons for August  - one that is 5 alpha numeric characters and one that is 4 alpha numeric.  You can use both of these and then no more.   It doesn't matter how many different codes are out there, memebox "remembers" that you used a $5.00 code for the month.   

 

customer service, if you have an issue, is frustrating as hell at times.   But the majority of my boxes got to me without any issues and I have been, overall, very happy with their service.

I think I need to sign myself up for this. I just made my first order of 6 boxes... and have 6 more waiting in my basket...

 

I do have a couple of newbie questions though.

 

Is there anyway of getting an email heads up if a box comes back in stock, if I put it on my wishlist? or is just a case of checking the page everyday?

 

also, when does Memebox release new boxes, or do they just put them up whenever and wherever?

to your first question - I have things on wishlist and I have never been notified that it was back in stock when it came back in stock.  You just have to check it.  Sometimes Memebox will announce a restock in their news letter - if they truly restocked it.  If something is back in stock because a person cancelled their order, then no, no alert.

 

to your second question - the best way to keep abreast of new boxes is to sign up for their newsletter and if they are giving out points.  So far, they seem to be running on this schedule

 

new boxes - monday, wednesday, friday

memeshop offers and sales - tuesday & thursday

 

that said - if you are a VIP member, you will get the newsletter in the wee am hours  - I am using my own time zone here - EST - and we get to purchase the new boxes first with maybe 2-3 dollars off.   those who aren't VIP do not get the newsletter until 6-8 hours later and then the sale is over.    In our big memebox thread, members do post those VIP links because memebox does not make them only for purchase to VIP members - they just "hide" the links.   So, if you check here on m-w-f in the am, you can find the new releases at discount OR follow a VIP blogger who will announce them in  a timely fashion.  Also, check the bloggers for promo codes, affiliate discounts ~ you can use those as well

 

To be a VIP member, you have to have purchased 5 boxes within 3 months and it will be reviewed every month.  For most of us, that isn't an issue!!

 

congrats for joining memebox

Hahah well considering I just bought 6 in a day I am hoping come September I will be a VIP (how fancy haha)

 

Thank you for all the info. I think I will hold off on the 6 in my wishlist until I see what comes out this week, but so many of the things look amazing. I am not so interested in the make up side of things but I will take as much skin/body/hair care as they can throw at me, in beautiful pink boxes :D

 

Is there somewhere I can find a list of these VIP bloggers? I feel like I have seen a list somewhere!

I'm VIP and I try to blog as well. Not as good as the other ladies here though :D

I'm going to start a blog as it apparently gives you 3 points for reviews, it'll be fairly basic I have no blog skillz, but do I just email meme with a link and ask to be on their affiliate programme?

 

Or will they say no because it is rubbish :P

    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  My Advent calendar has been nice, but my week was unlucky. First there was the broken water heater, then my brother had a flat tire, my father had a flat tire, and my brother had a mishap where he hit the mailbox at my work with his car when he came to pick me up  - I am so ashamed. My work is slow so they cut everybody's hours. The paychecks are going to be low, It's just for the holidays, they said. But who knows. This all happened in one week.  I don't know if I will be able to pay off my credit card by the end of the year as I wanted, and if I will be able to do the January goal I had planned. At least I finished my Christmas shopping and mailing for friends and family! I found it difficult. This weekend I need to clean and make a Plan B.
