Memebox Special #53 My Honey Box Review

Memebox My Honey Box is one I've been thinking about since I missed that first Honey box.  I was curious to see what they could find that wasn't already in a previous box.  I'm very happily surprised by the contents.  I think it's better than the first one even so I'm glad I snagged it while I could.

The cost for this box was $29 plus shipping.
Honey is good on so many levels.  Honey has been used to seal wounds during wartime and it's antimicrobial, antiseptic properties help prevent infection.  I'm hoping these same properties can help keep acne at bay!

Estheenique DayCell Essential Honey Lift Massage Cream-150ml- This is for dehydrated, sagging skin.  Pat onto the skin and get nutrition from the natural honey and collagen complexes.
This has a very stretchy and unusual consistency.

Migabee Antipollution Re-peeling Facial Pack-100ml- This is a peel off mask with natural ingredients renowned for nourishing and brightening effects- honey, bee venom, propolis and royal jelly.  It exfoliates and cleanses pores.
I love peel off masks so I'm debating using this tonight just because it's been so long since I've done one like this.
Enesti Apple and Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream-50g- The heavily moisturizing and vitamin-rich apple formula of this hand cream works to purify and firm up dry hands.
I can't lie.  I just don't use hand cream so this will go up for swaps.

Mi Click Manuka Honey Treatment-30ml- Enriched with high concentrates of honey, the Manuka Honey Treatment delivers deep nourishment, repairs damaged ends and provides intensive protein care for your hair.
This hair treatment really rounds out this box.  I didn't expect to see a honey hair product so this is fun even though I don't normally like getting hair stuff in my boxes.  I never end up using them.
Edmong Honeybee Water Cream-50ml- Enriched with honey extracts, natural spring water, propolis extracts, aloe vera water, hyaluronic acid and green tea extracts.  This is a fast absorbing gel moisturizer.
This is my favorite thing in the box.  It smells great, sinks in beautifully and moisturizes so well.  I think I will end up using this right away.
Pure Smile Snail Lip Treatment in Honey-10g- Enriched with honey extracts, snail mucus extracts, grapeseed oil, shea butter and many more naturally-derived nutrients.
So I know that everyone seems to look down on Pure Smile since it appears so often but I really liked the Snail Lip Treatment in the Vitamin Care Box.  I'm glad to have a spare, especially in the Honey flavor!

From Nature Multi Effect Collagen Mask- Real honey and collagen extracts help improve elasticity and creates a protective moisture barrier for your skin.  Packed with nine different herbal extracts for soothing and brightening your complexion.
There's no scientific evidence that collagen can be absorbed by the skin but I'll use this for the honey benefits for sure!  Still, I think that there should always be at least 2 masks.

VERDICT:  I'm very happy I got this box.  I'm pretty sure I didn't pay full price and I did get the Value Set of Honey and Wake Up Makeup.  This box has seven products.  One sheet mask, a peel off mask, a moisturizer, lip balm, hand cream, massage cream and a hair treatment.
I'd probably say more about the awesomeness of this box if I wasn't sick and full of Nyquil :D  I just thought I should at least do this much so those of you waiting for this box could see what you'll be getting!

    1. The Water Cream is fantastic, when I saw it as a spoiler I knew I would be happy with just that. I'm sure you'll be love it, too!

  3. I was fighting with myself over getting this one then eventually decided to save my money in hopes that something utterly amazing would come along and justify me passing this up. Now that I see what came in it I want to cry. The honey water cream looks yummy enough to eat! Are any of these things sticky like the real thing?

    1. That's what I did with the first Honey box and decided with the second one I wasn't going to have that happen. I had to get it! Nothing is really sticky like honey. The Esthenique Massage Cream has a funny stretchy, stringiness to it but it's not sticky.

    2. I'm supposed to get my value set of this and Wakeup Makeup by the end of the week & can't wait for the boxes. They really put together a nice box here and I'm excited to try the products.

    1. The free item came in the Wake Up Makeup box that was part of the value set with the Honey box. It was a Cellbydate The Real Galacto Zero Essence 100ml bottle. It's a great product and I'm happy to have it. I don't know if all Wake Up Makeup boxes (meaning not in the value set) came with it. I haven't looked into it.
