UNBOXING: Memebox Superbox #53 My Honey Box Second Edition

by - September 29, 2014

Oh, honey... I'm a really big fan of honey these days. Admittedly, I didn't used to have much use for it other than when I was sick and I wanted that throat coating addition to my lemon tea. These days, however, I feel like I've finally come to understand how awesome honey is. Honey has natural antibacterial properties, which makes it great for a hell of a lot of things, and one of those things is beauty products. For me, as I get older, I'm much more determined to find a healthy balance of bacteria in my life. I'm a firm believer that we need bacteria to build our immunity and keep us healthy, but I also know that too much bacteria can have pretty crappy results. So. Honey. I'm also moving more and more towards healthy, natural ingredients in both my food and my beauty routine because I feel like we should look to nature first before we look outside of nature. So. Honey.

I'm gonna stop right here before I tangent like crazy. Keep reading for a closer look at My Honey Box Second Edition...

From the Memebox website:

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

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!

Take this one-of-a-kind honey challenge with Memebox to visibly see and feel an improvement in your skin!

1. MIGABEE Antipollution RE-Peeling - 100ml Full Size - Value $37
"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 maintained the skin clean and well balanced.
Spread the pack adequately over your face. The texture will be sticky and honey-like at first, but it'll quickly start to dry off according to the skin temperature. Remove when it's completely dried off.cheeks."

First off, I swear I typed it out just as it was on the card. off.cheeks. Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of a peel off mask myself... I tend to find them uncomfortable to both have on my face and to remove, but I'm willing to give this one a go and hope that it'll be gentle to my skin. I'm pretty much always up for trying a new mask, who am I kidding? That said, I think this one will have to wait in the drawer for a bit because I am on mask overload. Overloadddddddd.

2. Mi Click Manuka Honey Treatment - 30ml Full Size - Value $5
"Enriched with high concentrates of honey, the Manuka Honey Treatment delivers deep nourishment, repairs damaged ends, and provides and 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.
Towel-dry after shampooing. Take an adequate amount on your palms and softly massage it through your hair. Rinse after 5-10 minutes."

Yes please. I wish that we got more hair products in Memeboxes. I've never ordered one of the hair boxes, but I kinda feel like I should since I really love trying out new products for my hair. I'm looking forward to trying this one as well. I do have one beef though. This claims to be full size, but it is so small. I mean, it's really, really small. 50ml of a hair product, to me, seems like it would be a sample size. That said, I'm still happy it's in here. And for a hair treatment at this size, I don't feel like they fudged the value either. Can't wait to try it.

3. Enesti Apple & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream - 50g Full Size - Value $5
"This heavily nourishing honey and vitamin-rich apple formula of this hand cream works to moisturize, purify, and firm up dry hands.
Apply the hand cream generously over your hands as often as possible."

While this one might not be exciting to a lot of people, I love hand cream. I have two different bottles of it on my desk in my office, two on my nightstand, and a bunch in other places. I really, really love hand cream. It's possibly because I tend to get really dry hands and there is literally no place on my body where dry skin bothers me as much as my hands - except maybe my feet. This one feels pretty basic to me, which I don't mind. It smells really delicious, which is a plus for me. Only downfall that I can find so far is that, while it doesn't feel greasy at all, there's a kind of waxy feeling left behind on my hands after it's rubbed in. I'm not sure why that is, but I suspect that could actually be a good thing come winter. We'll see!

4. From Nature Multi Effect Collagen Honey Mask - Full Size - Value $1
"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 the overall complexion.
After toner application, spread the mask sheet over your face. Rest for 15-20 minutes, remove, and pat the remaining essence for full absorbance."

I've actually stopped being excited about sheet masks because I have a stack about 3" thick in my drawer waiting to be used. Still, I'm not mad at it. Every time I get a sheet mask, it reminds me that they're there and I should use them. And I will, eventually. I like the sound of this one, I laugh at the use of "over 9 herbal ingredients" because... so, 10? But yeah. A sheet mask is cool. I'll take sheet masks. And, to be honest, I'll probably try to give them to people as my collection builds up.

5. EDMONG Honeybee Water Cream - 50ml Full Size - Value $29
"Enriched with honey extracts, natural spring water, propolis extracts, aloe vera water, hylauronic acid, and green tea extracts, this Honeybee Water Cream is a fast-absorbing moisturizing which strengthens the skin's natural restorative properties. It's free of paraben, artificial coloring, mineral oil, benzophenone, BHT, tal, etc.
At the end of your daily skincare routine, apply the cream evenly over your face and massage it into the skin for full absorbance. It can also be used as an overnight sleeping pack."

This is, by a mile, the item I'm most excited about in this box. The ingredients alone have me so excited to try this out and I will probably put it to use tonight before bed, let's be real. I was surprised when I opened it to find that it's a gel texture, since I was expecting it to be a cream, but I'm not mad at it. Did you see the ingredients? I feel like this could go one of two ways. Either I'm going to be instantly obsessed with it or I'm going to be so wildly disappointed that I don't even want to look at it. I'm excited enough and looking forward to it enough that there's no chance for middle ground. It's either awesome or it hates me and ruined my life, basically.

6. DAYCELL Essential Honey Lift Massage Cream - 150ml Full Size - Value $20
"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 create a tight-knit gel network on the skin. Plus, its unique honey-like gooey texture glides smoothing and absorbs deeply into the skin.
Take an adequate amount in your palm and massage it over your face as if patting the product into the skin. Gently roll it on the skin until everything's absorbed. Rinse off the next morning."

So. This bottle is huge and when I saw it I assumed that it was some kind of body product. BUT IT'S A SLEEPING PACK???? I'm officially excited about this one - and at the same time amused at the idea of a tight-knit gel network on the skin. I mean. Okay. Tight-knit gel network it is. I don't think that I have particularly sagging skin, but that may well be a lie according to Korean standards. I think I look older than some of the stunning 50-something actresses I've seen in dramas. But still. Not sagging. But still. I can't wait to use this baby. I feel like my skin is about to get sugar shock from all of the honey products.

7. Pure Smile Snail Lip Treatment Honey - 10g Full Size - Value $5
"Enriched with honey extracts, snail mucus extracts, grape seed oil, shea butter and many more naturally derived ingredients, Pure Smile's Lip Treatment moisturizes, nourishes and protects dry, chapped lips.
Apply a small amount of the lip treatment over your lip. It's especially recommended to be used overnight for an intense lip care."

So this is lip balm. And I like lip balm. And I like the ingredients that are in this lip balm. Since it says that it's intensive, I'm going to tuck this one away for the winter when my lips get the worst beating and see how it goes then. I'm looking forward to it though, because I do love a good lip treatment... as is probably obvious to anyone who looks at my collection of lip balms and treatments. Whoops.

Total Cost: $29
Total Value: $102

At first, I felt like this box was pretty cool but nothing to write home about. However, when I looked closer and particularly as I wrote this post, I got really excited about it. There's some products in here that I'm sincerely really looking forward to trying out as soon as possible and some that I think will be good if I tuck them away for when the colder weather comes. Overall, this one is a winner for me and worth every penny - and not just because of the possibly-inflated value of the box!
