I have a whole section in my blog, devoted to Memebox, so if you want to know more, check out the Memebox category. This box shipped on June 3rd, so it took 11 days to get to me – however, it should have been here two days ago, but due to a Post Office mistake, it took two additional days . That seems to be consistent with my past Memeboxes.
This is a Superbox, which according to Memebox, are theme-based and will only contain full sized items. They are more expensive than their Memebox Global (original), Luckybox and Nakedboxes, but remember – Superboxes contain all full sized items
This is the description from Memebox:
“Meet the “nature’s best all-around remedy“– the Honey Box!!! Honey has been praised and used since pre-Ancient Egyptian times for not only treating infections and wounds but also soothing and nourishing the skin. Today the effectiveness of honey as a healing remedy is being rediscovered as studies prove honey stimulates fast regeneration of skin cells. What’s better, nectars of various flowers and fruits in honey is packed full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes beneficial to any skin type! “
Well, let’s get onto the review
Informational card description the contents of Superbox #19
As these products are unknown to me and perhaps even to my readers, I am posting a description of the product under my thoughts for every product. Normally, I just do a snippet or if it is a product that doesn’t really need a description, I won’t post it. But for the purposes of my Memeboxes, I will make sure I find the appropriate description, usage and ingredient list if I can find it. The descriptions will be from the webpage that is linked to the product name. Not all of these products are sold in the Memebox Shop, so I had to look for them on various sites. I really had a hard time finding these products, by the way, so don’t be thrown off by the Korean websites that are linked here!
Skin Factory Real Honey Ampoule Mask This is a Cellulose Mask sheet – I will be using this tomorrow night, while watching Game of Thrones season finale. I wish that Memembox would put more than just one mask in their superboxes.. Full size 1 mask value $2.00
Product Description: Revered for generations for its ability to absorb and retain moisture, honey is rich in natural sugars that help to create a moisture-preserving veil over the face. Now use this pure honey mask to deliver hours of supreme nourishment to the skin!
How to use: Place on face after cleansing and adjust accordingly. Leave on for 10 minutes. Peel off and do not rinse.
YuYu Healthcare (Miss Korea-U) Honey Glow Balm I couldn’t find a web site that sold this product; however I did find their Facebook page with nothing on it! I wonder if this is a very new company? I am not sure how this very clear balm is supposed to add color (the rosy flush) to my cheeks and lips!! However, it smells like a pot of honey and it moisturizes very well. I love balms, have a lot of balms and will put this to good use. I will use this as a night lip treatment. Yes, those are my finger prints all over the balm – I had to try this out before I took the picture!! Full size 5gram value $11.00
Product Description: Use this cheek and lip balm to bring a rosy flush to the cheeks and lips, or use it to moisturize dry skin and chapped lips. Infused with royal honey, this balm penetrates deep within to deliver maximum nutrients and moisture.
How to use: Use your finger to apply the balm to you cheeks and lips
Secret Key Honey Bee Spot Remover I do have, alas, some sun damage from the years that I spent in Southern California. Back in those days, sunscreen was an afterthought! I will be using this and eager to see what type of results. The translation of the product below is hard to understand, but basically, it helps with skin marks, including acne, you can target the area on your skin and it is made with 5 non-harmful ingredients. It is a clear gel and absorbs quickly (no fluffy!) – it really has more of a watery consistency than a thick gel and I like that. I will be using this tonight and I am really excited to see what the results are!
I do have quibble over the “value” of this product. Memebox over-inflates their value prices – they state this is $41.00, but I found this same exact product at beautynetkorea.com on sale for under $9.00. Their non-sale price is still under $10.00 This makes me sad :( Full size 15ml value $41.00 (more like $10.00). However, if this product is one I wish to purchase, at least I know it is not that expensive!
Point 1: Rapid absorption/fully feeling no! Its’ bees venom and tea tree oil alleviates troubles.
Point 2: Containing propolis. Controlling excessive sebum
Point 3: Exclusive area caring. It cares exclusive area which lead skin troubles area to be resolved quickly
Beauty Recipe Propolis Magic Ampoule I could only find this product on a Korean only shopping website, but I was amused to see that they call this product “Little Mermaid Propolis Magic Ampoule”!
This product contains Galactomyces, Spirulina, Acai Berry, Rose Hip and other ingredients, of which one I must assume is honey! This is a serum, so I will be happy to incorporate this into my skin regime – it is supposed to balance out my skin, even out skintone and promote radiance. This is a very light weight serum and absorbs quickly into the skin. Full size 30ml value $43.00
What are Galactomyces? I have no idea, so I looked it up – this is a fermented enzyme from natural yeast extracts. It is supposed to increase moisture and hydration to the skin, help control PH balance, brighten skin and naturally exfoliate. More information here.
What is Spirulina? This is a form of blue-green algae that lives in warm, fresh water masses. “The high protein and amino acid content found in Spirulina (it has all essential amino acids in bioavailable forms) are a wonderful nutritional base and allow for the stimulation of endogenous production of collagen…” Learn more here.
Nella Fantasia Honey One Snail Moisture Cream I have resisted snail anything (other than for eating purposes) so far. I will use this as I am more educated on snail slime :D They aren’t really killing the snails and extracting it from dead snails, but harvesting the mucus and this cream being infused with honey does make it more easier for me to try it! I will wait until summer is over to try this product out, as I do not need such a heavy cream in the summer. Want to learn more about snail cream? Full size 100g value $38.00

Pure Smile Honey Snail Hand Cream What is this – a Honey box or a Snail Slime box? :D Now, in my previous review of the Green Tea box, I dismissed the Hello Kitty hand cream, but this one, I don’t think I will. Since mucin has such restorative properties and my hands get cut up and bruised (don’t ask – I am clumsy and paper cuts are killers), I am interested in seeing if this helps with the healing time on my hands. This is a lightweight lotion, so I can use it now, during the hot, humid summer months. Full size 60gram value $5.00
Product Description: This Pure Smile Snail Hand Cream Honey’s unique formula is rich with intensive moisturizers and special conditioners which help diminish tough calluses and heal unsightly cuticles. It dries to a velvety-smooth finish, leaving minimal residue on hands. Honey and vitamins A and E penetrate to help heal and soothe dry, chapped, cracked hands.
How to use: Apply hand cream to hands and nails.
Overall, I am very happy with my Honey box – I do feel, even with the over inflated price of the Secret Key item, it was a very good value. Once again, in the superboxes, they should give us more than one sheet mask – I feel that they should give us a pack of 3 masks to count as one item as that will really help determine if the mask is something I wish to purchase as a stand alone. This box was $39.00 + $6.99 shipping for a total of $45.99, however I purchased this during a special for $29.00 and I had 2 welcome memepoints so I paid a total of $33.99 for this box. I received a value of $140.00 or $109.00, if I adjust for the over inflated price of the Secret Key item. It still is a great deal for what I paid for it, as it is over 3 times the value.
