THE CULTURE BOX  


What is it and what’s inside? 


The CULTURE Box is a specially curated monthly subscription box delivering a taste of South Korea to your door. Every month you'll receive 7-10 products: a beauty product, snacks, Kpop collectibles and culture merchandise, a monthly magazine with entertainment, history, culture, recipes, language and more. The contents of the box are a secret until they arrive at your door.

The variants of boxes are GIRLS and GUYS:


GIRLS  

✓ Snacks ✓ Kpop/Culture item ✓ Skincare/Beauty items ✓ History and Culture Magazine


GUYS

Snacks ✓ Kpop/Culture item ✓ History and Culture Magazine 

*Guy boxes will receive more snacks instead of a beauty item but the items will be equal to the value or as best we can to the missing item


Products vary month on month and may vary on promotional material subject to availability  


How does it work?  

The CULTURE Box is a subscription product - you will be billed every month and will receive a box every month until you cancel. 

You can also order it as a gift or as a one-off box with no auto-renewal - just select ‘do not auto-renew’ on checkout.


How much does it cost?  

The CULTURE Box is £13.99 + shipping per month, and gets cheaper with pre-payment. There are no hidden fees.


Prepayment 

3 month = £40.00, 6 month = £80.00, 12 month = £155.00

Prepaid plans auto-renew unless ‘do not auto renew’ is ticked on checkout OR you cancel before the prepayment period is over. 


How does billing work?  

Once you subscribe, you will be charged for that month. Following that you will be re-billed every 15th of the month until you cancel. For example if you cancel on the 16th after the renewal, you will charged and receive one more box next month before the cancellation takes full effect. Once you have been re-billed, we unfortunately cannot refund you but you will get email reminders to notify that your renewal is coming up. 


When is the monthly cut-off date and when will I receive my first box?  

The cut-off date to order boxes is the 4th of every month. 

For example if you ordered on the 3rd January you will receive the January box after we dispatch on 6th January. If you order on the 5th January, you will receive the February box after we dispatch on 6th February. 

Boxes are shipped from the UK between 5th-6th of that month. Please see Shipping & Delivery for more information.


How do I cancel my subscription?  

You can cancel at any time by logging into your account, under ‘Update your information’ click ‘Edit’ and then ‘Cancel Subscription’. You can also email us and we will gladly process your cancellation.


If you cancel after the 15th, you will still receive one more box before you end your subscription.  


Please note cancellation of our subscription does not mean that your order itself has been cancelled and should you only end your subscription after the 15th day of the month, you will still receive and will still be liable for payment of one more box before your subscription ends. You should be aware that cancellation of your subscription does not entitle you to any refund of monies paid for any order which has already been processed prior to your notifying us of the cancellation of your subscription.


Can I sign up for just one box?/How do gifts work? 

You can order the CULTURE box as a gift as a one-off box - just select ‘Gift’ on checkout, you can even select whether you want auto-renewal or not upon checkout.  


Can I skip a delivery? 

Yes - you can log into your account any time and click 'edit' to change your renewal.


I have special dietary requirements/allergies 

Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the elimination or provide replacement of products with allergen/dietary ingredients but you can email us to find out whether this month's box is suitable for you at [email protected] and we will do our best to provide you with information to the best of our knowledge. Please be aware that as our products are all sourced from Korea, we are not responsible for, and do not take responsibility for, their manufacture or what ingredients are included in these products. We will and can accordingly not be responsible and or liable to you for any allergic reaction that any of these products may cause and it is your responsibility to read all labels carefully.
