The last unboxing for the trio of apple-petit-blackout boxes. I have already reviewed #66 Petit Treasures and #67 Blackout! and I have saved the best of the three boxes for last. This review is for Memebox Special #66 Apple Mojito, which was the primary reason why I purchased this bundle.

Informational Card which should explain what I got and its value.
As many of 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!
Enesti Apple & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream This is actually a repeat from My Honey Box and this is a welcomed repeat, as I do love this hand cream. I will just repeat what I wrote about this product from My Honey Box review:
Honey and apples – how can you go wrong? I love a hand cream made from honey and has a thick, creamy texture. This has a nice scent to it, very honey and light apple. Full Size 50 g Value $5.00
Product Description: Fresh and sweet apple honey fragrance. Vitamin C and polyphenol in apples brighten and clarify skin, and sweet honey pulls in and holds moisture to simultaneous supply resilience and nourishment deep into skin.
Contains plant extracts:
- Shea butter
- Purslane extract
- Fermented bean extract
What is the natural moisturizing film shea butter? Shea butter is oil extracted from the magical tree Karite, and it is a natural moisturizer which has been used by African women living in the dry and arid Sahara for hundreds of years to protect skin.
Effects of shea butter
- Natural plant moisturizer with exceptional moisturizing effect
- Helps make skin lustrous
- Helps moisturize and shine skin
- Contains vitamins D and F for nourishment

A.H.C. Climax Foam Cleanser Okay, the term Climax in a foaming product strikes me as funny! A.H.C. is owned by the same company that makes Shara Shara and Vitito products ~ Shara Shara is their key name company and Vitito seems to be a more higher end line ~ I received a couple of Vitito products in my Citrus Care box. A.H.C. seems to be more a drugstore type line, which I do not mind receiving. I can tell you, it took a while to find the official website of A.H.C. ~ I had to backtrack to a Shara Shara FB page and then look for A.H.C items, which finally I found one that linked to their website. This actually looks like a decent cleanser to me and the few ingredients I can make out, it does sound like it is made with good products, such as grains and coconut oil. However, if anyone finds out otherwise, please comment below! Full Size 180 mL Value $29.00
Product Description: Formulated from soda water, coconut, and glucose components, this A.H.C. Climax Foam Cleanser is a mild facial cleanser with abundant foams and rich in various nutrients. It’s creamy in texture and leaves skin moist and supple after use. Recommended for all skin types – oily, dry, combination and sensitive.
Key Ingredients: soda water, coconut oil, soap grass extract, muhwanja extract, yam root extract, wheat germ extract, keratin
I did do a little research on the term “muhwanja” and if I am correct, this is Chinese soapberry, which is used in cleansing and treating acne.
Holika Holika Dessert Time Lip Balm 06 Lemon Cupcake Okay, why wasn’t this in Petit Treasures? This really is out of place here in a “Mojito” theme and really should have been in Petit Treasures. The appropriate substitute would have been a Mojito toner (more on that later). I received a Holika Holika Dessert Time Lip Balm in my Café box, but not this variation. These are really cute and the attention to design on the cupcake is pretty fabulous. It does smell like lemons, contains lemon zest, and according to the product description, this lip balm turns into a sheer pink color when applied. Great stocking stuffer so I am not swatching it 🙂 Full Size 6 g Value $6.00
As you can see from the image above, the Lemon Cupcake looks different from the one I received. I think that Holika Holika redesigned the Lemon version, as I did find my version on eBay
Purederm Skin Turn-over Lemon Peeling Toner I am happy to get this Purederm product. I love toners and ones that are formulated for oily skin. This toner contains lemon, orange and green tea extracts, sugar maple extracts and aloe vera extracts. You apply with a cotton pad, wipe your face with it and do not rinse off. I am a little surprised that Purederm didn’t list the ingredients in English, because they are really good about that. I contacted Purederm and within less than 12 hours, HS Kim from Purederm responded with a list of ingredients! FANTASTIC customer service! Full Size 170 mL Value $24.00
Product Description: This Lemon Peeling Toner is enriched with AHA, lemon extracts, witch hazel water, and portulaca extracts. When used on a cotton pad to tone skin after cleansing, it helps soothe and de-stress stimulated skin and facilitates skin turn-over by removing dead skin cells and smoothing out uneven skin tones.
Contains skin lightening ingredients orange/lemon/green tea extract. Provides rich moisture on dry and dull skin giving bright skin tone. Vitamin C treats dead skin and brightens skin tone. Lemon Extract for silky skin. Orange Extract and Green Tea Extract give vitality.
Purederm Skin Turn-over Lemon Peeling Tone makes skin smoother with exfoliating effect. It contains AHA and lemon extract to removed needless dead skin and various herbal extracts like orange fruit extract and sugar maple extract that make skin moisturized after wash.

Tonymoly Red Apple Tox Honey Cream This is my 2nd duplicate in the box. I JUST received this in MCW4 and I already owned it prior to that box. Now I have two more of these apples, which it is a pretty good product. I just have 3 of them now. Since I got this third one, I will be gifting these apples to my nieces. They have not really been exposed to K-beauty before and this will be a nice gift for them ~ it is Kawaii, smells great and is a good product. I will repeat what I wrote in MCW4 on this product.
I use it as a sleeping pack mask, as it is very thick and sticky. I have oily skin, so this doesn’t absorb completely into my skin, so that is why I use it for an overnight treatment. Those with dry skin might be able to use this as a day cream ~ you will need to try this out and see how well it absorbs. I do think the Apple Red Tox Honey Cream is suitable for all skin types and it does really smell like fresh apple juice! It is an anti-bacterial, acne care, nourishing, moisturizing and anti-oxidant product. Full Size 80 mL Value $12.00
Product Description: Made from vitamin-rich red apple and deeply nourishing honey, Tonymoly’s famous Red Appletox Honey Cream is a daily facial cream with a unique honey-like texture. The bouncy, hydrating gel cream stretches when patted on, giving the skin a massage effect as well as a silky finish
Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol, Cyclomethicone, Sodium Polyacrylate, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Apple extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sunflower seed oil, Propolis extract, Honey extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Soluble Collagen, Ginkgo Leaf Extract, Allantoin, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydrogenated Lecithin
First off, let’s just say the most glaring omission in this box is the Saem or Mizon product, that specifically have the word “mojito” in their name.

Also, Mojito’s are made with mint and limes, which are both missing in this box. That said, this box is fairly solid, despite not including a Mojito toner/mint/ampoule and instead including the CPM2 Tonymoly Appletox product, which has cropped in several boxes already. There are two repeats in this box and a variation of a gloss that was in the Café box. Out of the 3 boxes, this one does seem to satisfy many Meme-customers, although the disappointment over Blackout! and Petit Treasures does color the excitement for this box.
I purchased this box for $19.00 with the shipping already bundled. The total MemeValue of this box is of $76.00. ** What is MemeValue? It is my term to describe the value that Memebox puts on the products, which can be very over inflated. You can usually find these products at a lesser cost, so I do suggest researching first if you wish to purchase them.
