Memebox Addiction Support Thread

Recommended Posts

The brightening box does not tempt me for the following reason

 

brightening, removing sun damage spots, never work for me.   I have tried so many products over the last 25 years and nothing. 

 

So, if I want to remove the sun damage or even out my skin tone, it would have to be lazer or professional chemical peels, which I am too scared to do!!

 

It isn't that bad enough for me to take the chance :)

Oh no D:

 

I've never really tried anything for my sun damage spots... I honestly never knew they had products for this kind of thing, and I have quite a few of them on my face, so I thought this was a must buy!

 

Now I'm regretting my purchase a bit, sigh =s

@@athy it may work for you! I just know for my stubborn skin, it just doesn't. Brightening products do take at least 3 months to show any effects (or at least the ones I know of), so I hope they do give some good sized products in these boxes.

You all have to tell me how these products work for you! If everyone gets good results, I may purchase some separately to see how it works on my skin.

Now, that VIP Birthday box - that got me hooked- looks like a a bath/body box - one that I have been asking for!  I do hope memebox, now that they have gained in popularity, are now posting pictures that accurately reflect the contents in the box - it doesn't have to be the same brands, but the actual type - I would be over the moon if this box actually did contain a sugar scrub, a facial cleanser and body wash!

Hey Marjolein, I just noticed your signature! I feel the same, except I'm not quite there yet with the total number of boxes. I have 15 coming still but my addiction might come to an end soon :( because I got charged custom fees yesterday... it's still sitting in the postal office, sigh. I just realized nothing kills your addiction when custom fee is so expensive!

It is very expensive. However, in Canada, if the package less than $20, They shouldn't charge custom, and they will refund it if you already paid for it, or you can send it back to custom and tell them to revalue it.

Just wondering, what country do you live in?

 

I asked a question about customs the other day with that concern. I was told from another buyer here in the US that she doesn't have to pay customs so I'm relieved.

 

I know Canada is a pain though when it comes to packages.

It's canada. But i got a lot of boxes with custom fee before this one. So this is the first. I'm planning on getting it tomorrow so I'll see if the value is more than $20...

I ordered a package once to be sent to my boyfriend in canada. About ~$40 worth from a website (not memebox). Customs did charge a $20 fee. I was so mad, but they let me pay it over the phone to UPS. I was so mad, it was his birthday gift and I wasn't about to make him pay to pick it up!

Packages marked "Gifts" are ALWAYS passable here in Canada via Canada post it would be chaotic if it wasn't. - As for DHL /UPS , they are big on trying to collect money from every delivery, its such a scam. I had a package sent from china for 15$ hair accessories, and it was MARKED as GIFT, but they tried to charge me ADMINISTRATION FEE'S from DHL'S agents of 10$, I called them and told them I was not paying it. Have not heard from them since, no bill, no strikes in my credit report, NADDA, which confirms its just a big scam to make MORE money.

Thanks for clarifying that up...I did get admin fees once too. It was about $6-7. I was not pleased with the customs in my country but there is nothing I can do if the package seems dodgy and too heavy for it's value..

Hi Veritazy, in addition if it's from a family or friend to a friend/family here in canada, then sometimes what they do is open the box and see if there's a greeting card. If there is then they won't charge you anything.

It's true. I think that's what happened here except it's Canada's Border Customs ppl so I can't really say anything. Memebox sent my boxes express. So becareful with express post. It might just be Ontario but I'm not sure.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
