Memebox – My Honey Box Review

There are a few boxes that one could consider part of “Memebox History,” and the well-loved “My Honey Box” is one such box. This box is easily one of the more popular offerings Memebox ever produced, and is still one of the most coveted today. Memebox very kindly sent us this box for review purposes.*


Memebox is a highly popular Korean beauty box that specializes in both mystery and collaboration boxes, as well as their cheaper than usual shop offerings. Memebox isn’t a typical subscription box. Each mystery box is released with a different theme and could contain any items pertaining to that theme. Sometimes they release specific boxes that are branded with specific items such as makeup, skincare, or boxes by popular Korean brands. Their collaboration boxes are “naked” boxes meaning you can see the contents before shipment.

honeycard2 honeycardEach Memebox comes with an info card that details the items, their use, and price. The items are sourced and shipped directly from Korea so their instructions may not always be in English.

honeyantiMigabee Anti-Pollution RE-Peeling – 37$
Product Description
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.

How to use
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.

Migabee is a brand that’s been lauded all over the Memebox reviews and for good reason; they’re very high quality products with unusual ingredients. I think my favorite part of this is the scent, it’s almost like a spiced honey. The scent transitions to having a bit more of a vinegar undertone while it’s working, though. The change in texture will take some getting used to, it goes on sticky like a glaze, then hardens and you peel it off your skin. It works nicely, though I feel like I needed an extra moisturizer afterwards. Also BEE VENOM.

honeymanukaMi Click Manuka Honey Treatment – 5$
Product Description
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.

How to use
Towel-dry after shampooing. Take an adequate amount on your palms and softly massage it in throughout your hair. Rinse off after 5~10 minutes.

I LOVE hair treatments anyway (probably more than any other item to be honest) and this item is fantastic. It makes my hair silky smooth and very shiny without weighing it down. It doesn’t really have a scent to it which I also like – and the formula isn’t thick or sticky at all.

honeyhcEnesti Apple & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream – 5$
Product Description
The heavily nourishing honey and vitamin-rich apple formula of this hand cream works to moisturize, purify, and firm up dry hands.

How to use
Apply the hand cream generously over your hands as often as possible.

One of my favorite items in the box is scented like a granny smith apple. It’s a very moisturizing hand lotion but that moisture doesn’t last past an hour or two, so it’s probably not well suited to the harsher Winter climate. Probably perfect for early Spring and early Fall though. It absorbs well and quickly, and the formula is quite thin.

honeymaskFrom Nature Multi Effect Collagen Honey Mask – 1$
Product Description
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.

How to use
After toner application, spread the mask sheet over your face. Rest for 15~20 minutes, remove, and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbance.

This smells really good when out and is very sticky, with an almost honey like texture. Afterwards my skin felt very soft and was a bit red, probably from the essence. The redness quickly dissipated.

honeywaterEDMONG Honeybee Water Cream – 29$
Product Description
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 strengths the skin’s natural restorative properties. It’s free of paraben, artificial coloring, mineral oil, benzophenone, BHT, talc, etc.

How to use
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 has a gelatinous texture, and looks and feels just like aloe. The color is more sheer too, and it’s bouncy!

honeycloseIt has a bit of a cooling effect when applied, and it absorbs very quickly while smelling lightly of sweet honey. The moisture lasts awhile too, but the fun part is playing with it. Easily one of my favorite items in the box.

honeymassageDAYCELL Essential Honey Lift Massage Cream
Product Description
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.

How to use
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.

The only thing I didn’t particularly care for was it seemed to tug uncomfortably at my skin while it was applied, almost like a tightening effect. It’s probably where its a gooey creamy that feels more like frosting, and it hardens the longer it sits if it doesn’t absorb. It is quite hydrating though not nearly on the same levels as the water cream.

honeysnailPure Smile Snail Lip Treatment Honey
Product Description
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.

How to use
Apply a small amount of the lip treatment over your lip. It’s especially recommended to be used overnight for an intense lip care.

This item really surprised me because it’s made with snail mucus, and I’m honestly not someone who goes for the more quirky and unusual items that Korea sports. The second you put this on it tingles and instantly hydrates better than any chap stick I’ve ever owned and you never need to reapply it – it’ll stay on for hours at a time, tingling the entire time. It has no color or scent.

honeyallThe only thing I wasn’t particularly crazy about was the massage cream, only because of the uncomfortable feeling of the tightening. I really loved the hand cream, the hair treatment and the water cream, and the snail lip treatment was just a dark horse. The Honey Box has always been a popular box and it’s pretty easy to see why; all the items are very high quality and effective.

Memeboxes run the gamut from 15-32$ plus shipping. Each box is released with a different theme and sometimes you get excellent offerings like the Honey box. The boxes are ultimately mystery boxes with specific exceptions, and it’s worth the risk. We keep a list of current boxes and newer shop items on our Memebox page located here.

  1. I have been a bad blog fan and so I’m spending some time while my back is being a little bitch to catch up on your blog. Have you gotten past the snail/bee ingredients yet? It seems like you have from this reviewer!


    • Hah don’t feel bad, there’s times I just don’t have the extra time to read all my favorites so I do a “mass reading” of sorts to get caught up. I haven’t quite gotten past it but I had to for the sake of this review since it was a sponsor box, and I thought, just maybe this odd ingredient stage was over, but they sent me OMG3 to review next.

      I think they read the comments lol, they do say they read each review they get…

      and they just put the Peach Sake set in their shop…. and I was dying for it and have mentioned it multiple times…

      and I bought it in .2 seconds …

      I have a problem.

      Also I hope your back feels better, I can relate all too well to back issues. 😦


  2. Congrats on breaking down the snail barrier! But I don’t think I could pull off putting it on my lips just yet :-/ I’ve heard so many good things about this box and have been seriously considering trading for the water cream ever since I heard about it but does it stay sticky overnight? I don’t want to wake up with flies stuck on my face…
