Memebox: Superbox #53 My Honey Box

This is my third Memebox, and I a gob more ordered.  I'm OBSESSED with Memebox.  They are not a subscription service; instead they allow you to only buy the boxes you're interested in, although most are mysteries.  I would be stoked if they did have a subscription service though.  This box came with a nifty card detailing the benefits of each product and how to use them, which is awesome because the information on the packaging is all in Korean.

A little background:  "Memebox curates only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. An extremely competitive industry, Korean cosmetics are renowned for their unprecedented quality developed through cutting-edge technology."

I was very intrigued by the honey theme of this box.  This is the second honey box they released and the first had some seemingly great products in it.

This box was $29 for the kit (plus $6.99 S+H), and using a $5 off coupon code, "QACQU9", I paid $30.99.

"Bigger, better, and sweeter than Honey Box #1, My Honey Box oozes with all things honey to enhance your natural beauty.

"Honey is a pretty amazing substance and there is a lot more to it than just a sweet tasting treat.  Hailed as the queen of natural beauty enhancers, honey is rich in natural sugars and minerals that work to nourish and repair damaged skin.  Its natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties stop bacterial growth and heal infections, while its antioxidant-rich formula creates a youth-preserving veil over the face to protect against wrinkle-causing free radical and improve the skin's radiance!"

Included in this kit were SEVEN full-sized items, fully-detailed with a great informational card with directions for use, which was extremely helpful since the directions on the packaging is almost all in Korean.

Before I begin, I have to say, EVERYTHING IN THIS BOX SMELLED DIVINE!!!

MIGABEE Antipollution RE-Peeling (100ml FULL-SIZE) - This is a peel-off type of facial pack enriched with natural ingredients renown for nourishing and brightening effects - honey, bee venom, propolis, royal jelly.  It'll work to exfoliate dead skin cells, blackheads, and whiteheads and to control excess oil and sebum by maintaining the skin clean and well-balanced.

MI CLICK Manuka Honey Treatment (30ml FULL-SIZED) - Enriched with high concentrates of honey, the Manuka Honey Treatment delivers deep nourishment, repairs damaged ends, and provides an intensive protein care to your dry hair.  The natural manuka oil infused also works to renew damaged cuticles and restore silky gloss to your hair.
ENESTI Apple & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream (50g FULL-SIZED) - The heavily nourishing honey and vitamin-rich apple formula of this hand cream works to moisturize, purify, and firm up dry hands.

The peeling mask was fun to use.  I'll probably put it on a little thicker next time, because even though I enjoyed pulling off the mask, it was a little thin.  I had to wash off some of it.  It left my skin a little dry and definitely oil-free.  The honey hair treatment really did leave my hair feeling silky smooth, which is amazing for a frizzy-haired girl.  Only thing was, it read like it would last for thirty washings, in place of conditioner from what I could tell, but I'll be lucky to get three uses out of it.  Still an amazing product.  The hand lotion goes on a little thick, but after it absorbs, it does leave your hands feeling very moisturized.

FROM NATURE Multi Effect Collagen Honey Mask (FULL-SIZED) Containing high concentrates of real honey and collagen extracts, this nourishing Honey Mask delivers deep nutrition and improves skin elasticity by creating a protective moisture barrier over your skin.  Plus, this mask is packed with over 9 different herbal ingredients  for soothing and brightening up the overall complexion.

EDMONG Honeybee Water Cream (50ml FULL-SIZED) - Enriched with honey extracts, natural spring water, propolis extracts, aloe vera water, hyaluronic acid, and green tea extracts, this Honeybee Water Cream is a fast-absorbing moisturizer which strengthens the skin's natural restorative properties.  It's free of paraben, artificial coloring, mineral oil, benzophenone, BHT, talc, etc.

I love these fabric masks drenched in moisturizers, especially the higher quality ones like this.  Aside from the delight I get from making my husband really uncomfortable as I sit beside him looking all serial killer-y, they moisturize like no other and leave your face dewy for a very long time.  The water cream has a nice consistency and moisturizes nicely, but doesn't have a long-lasting effect.

DAYCELL Essential Honey Lift Massage Cream (150ml FULL-SIZED) - This is the perfect solution for dehydrated, sagging skin.  When gently patted onto the skin, the natural honey and collagen complex of the massage cream delivers deep nutrition and firms up the skin elasticity by creating a tight-knit gel network on the skin.  Plus, its unique honey-like gooey texture glides smoothly and absorbs deeply into the skin.

PURE SMILE Snail Lip Treatment Honey (10g FULL-SIZED) - Enriched with honey extracts, snail mucus extracts, grape seed oil, shea butter, and many more naturally-derived nutrients, Pure Smile's Lip Treatment moisturizes, nourishes, and protects dry, chapped lips.

I used the massage cream on my arms rather than my face because I have so many face products, and so little time to review them all.  It has a fun gooey texture, made my skin feel like satin, and smelled heavenly... probably the best in a box full of wonderful scents.   As far as the snail lip treatment... well, I'm sorry guys, but I just couldn't do it.  If it was a skin product I would've totally tried it.  I can't bring myself to put snail mucus on my lips though.  However, it will make a nice swap or giveaway item.

THE VERDICT:  This is obviously another big win for Memebox.  I only wish that they could've made the box more diverse with fewer face creams, and maybe a couple of makeup items.  Otherwise, two thumbs WAY up!  Plus, did I mention how WONDERFUL EVERYTHING SMELLS!!!


  1. So excited!!! I was lucky to get this one on the restock today so I cannot wait to smell all these wonderful things for myself~

    1. YAY! Glad they restocked so others can have a chance to try.

  2. Great review!! Every time I read a review for this box and I get more and more jealous that I didn't grab it up when I had the chance! and LOL I get SO much pleasure creeping the hubs out when I wear sheet masks. One time I wore a black one (I think it was a dewytree one from a memebox) and sent him a picture of me wearing it while he was at work and he was SO freaked out LOL ;) #kbeautybloghop

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I love your site!
