Memebox Discussion August 2014

Recommended Posts

Oh! That makes me a bit worried! I added it to my wishlist based on seeing an unboxing on Youtube. I thought all Memeboxes were the same, except for maybe color variations on cosmetics. Yikes! If they change boxes after shipping some out, that might mean I won't get addicted to them at all. I don't like a bait and switch situation!!!

Each Memebox all have the same items in it so you're good!  If you liked what you saw in the Herbal box then go for it!  Just be aware that it doesn't fit its description from the Memebox website.  It mentions a few scents like Peppermint that are not present in the box and instead there are floral scents like rose, etc.  For people who were expecting an Herbal box not a Floral box, that was an unpleasant surprise!

 

But you already know what's in the box and you like it all, so you should be fine!  I do think it's pretty funny there is a perfume for your ladyparts in that box, though!

I have alot coming, but like anyone else I am excited about the a scentboxes!! Hopefully some more HG stuff~

I absolutely adore that Grapefruit spray I got...  LOVE IT!  I'm going to be so sad when it's gone.  And at the rate I'm using it, it won't be long.  So hopefully there will be something tropically amazing in the new boxes.

Oh, I get it now. Yes, I was going on the video and not the description. I think the herbal cleansing oil gel might be nice to use when I'm wearing heavier makeup--kind of like the Dermalogica pre cleanse sample I have but am running low on. Then I love drinking Rooibos, so I'd like to try that in skin care form. The video didn't mention a perfume for 'down there,' but I guess that was the Rose essence or whatever. I'd probably just toss a bit in the tub and use it that way, lol! I can certainly understand the frustration of pre ordering before the contents were known when you had to go by the description alone only to find out it was misleading. I hope I don't face that with the F/W box. I want those purple, green, and berry colors! 

 

Thanks for helping me understand things a bit better everyone. :D

If you saw the unboxing, that is what was in it.  they had a rose scented perfume for your ladyparts and a jasmine bath salt - no tea tree or peppermint as the description stated for the box.

based on the description for the F/W colors, the green doesn't sound like a forest or deep green, but a pastel green.

The two products you mentioned from the Herbal box, I use them both everyday and love them! The oil cleansing gel is smooth and creamy and smells AMAZING but you definitely need to follow up with a cream or foaming cleaner, as you should anyway. As for the Rooibos, I just started using it about 5 days ago after having a horrible allergic reaction to another serum and moisturizer and I like it so far. It's extremely light, but nice for summer.

I really liked the Herbal box. Many of us were just upset it didn't actually seem a bit more "herbal" if that makes any sense.

well, I was upset because I am allergic to those 2 scents :(   I would have never purchased it if memebox had stated rose & jasmine and took out peppermint & tea tree....  I still think that was false advertising.

I finally opened the rose oil and figured I would just use it in one of my oil burners -- the smell was so horrid it reminded me of the deodorizer they use in public toilets. Not exactly something I want my home smelling like.

I got the herbal and it isn't anything like the description - they included a rose scented vagina oil and a jasmine balt salt - no peppermint or tea tree. 

Hey, now, I am ROCKING that cootch oil. My dog keeps trying to burrow into my crotch, although I guess that's not new behavior.  :D

I do understand why you are upset. I was just confused at first. Sorry. I think someone said the herbal cleansing oil had at least some tea tree in it, but yeah, it wasn't a lot and didn't have that tea tree smell. So yeah, very misleading if you ordered it before the contents were revealed.

 

As for the green in the F/W box, I hope you are wrong, but this is my first box and you've gotten them before, so you are probably right. Oh well, I like green even in pastel, but would prefer a darker color.

You are making it soooo very hard to resist buying this one! I need to wait. Just hoping it doesn't sell out in the meantime.

 

ETA: The value pack of 2 boxes I wanted did sell out overnight--Earth & Sea + All About Lips. Big bummer!

I had never heard of "hemlock green" either, but google image search and Pantone agree that it's more of a pastel green... I hope it's pretty anyway!

Only certain boxes during certain times will give you points. For example, they may release a new box and state "Eran $5 in points when you buy this box." But that is not the case for every box. If you follow a blog that is an affiliate of Memebox, they will also have a special link or ad on their site that links to "referral deal" boxes that will give you points for each box purchased.

 

Memebox also gives out points during random periods of time. For example, they may give $5 in points during a holiday weekend and give you only a few days to spend them. They also do promos with new boxes where they occasionally offer $2-$5 in points when you purchase a box.

Not sure where to post this. I was on Pinterest and noticed people posted pins of memebox not sure if some posted referral links as my Pinterest sometimes fails to load. Anyway I have on my Pinterest pins of the boxes I bought. So I thought about emailing memebox ask if there are referral links via Pinterest. So they tell me to place my referral link so they can see if it works? I told them I have no referral link as I am not an affiliate I just wanted to know ask if it also works like that. I hope someone reads this and knows an answer perhaps?

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
