Memebox Unboxing : Superbox #67 Holika Holika

Holika Holika is renowned for their skincare and beauty supplies. So when Memebox announced a Holika Holika treasure trove, I almost did a back flip. This box is chock full of the best they have to offer when it comes to  body care, beauty goodies and items that will transform you.

Learn more about Memebox by visiting their site:


Each Memebox comes with a card to explain what each item is capable of of. Unless you are fluent in Korean, hold onto this card!
Product #1: Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Pore cover Powder
retails for $9
This powder comes with a powder puff to dab your face with it;s goodness. It is enfused with Lotus water, Noni flower water, sugar complex and cotton extracts to leave your skin feeling soft. This stuff doesn't have a fragrance, so if you are sensitive it will work great. I found that I didn't much care for this product. It didn't give my a matte finish after my makeup application and made my skin more oily than anything. But who knows... it has to work for others.
Product #2: Holika Holika Heartfull Moisture Lipstick
retails for $9
This lipstick is super cute. And goes on kinda of sheerer than you would think it does. Not to mention it smells super clean and doesn't have a flavor.  There were three options you could have received, I received Kissing.
 How cute is that shape!?
Product #3: Holika Holika Soda Pure Cleansing BB Oil
retails for $17
This stuff is awesome! My face feels like a baby's bottom! It smells just like Sprite and goes on like a foamy oil to cleanse away your makeup after a long day. Memebox says it is a low stimulating oil that clears away blackheads and whiteheads. It is formulated with olive oil, argon oil, and Harrogate water(whatever that is).
Product #4: Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel
retails for $7
This stuff is made with 99 percent aloe leaf water from the island of Jeju, Korea. It moisturizes the skin and it is lightly fragranced. Supposedly you can use it not only on your skin, but also as a hair mask. I haven't done either. I figured I would save this for the next time I get sunburned.
 Product #5 Holika Holika Jewel-light Shimmer Eyes
retails for $5
 Another item where the color was randomly chosen out of three options. I received the Milk Tea color... which makes me look like I am jaundiced.... HAHAHAHA. Seriously it is lightweight and sheer. But my pink complexion can not handle this yellow-brown eyeshadow. It absorbs it and like I said It makes me look ill.

Product #6: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Starter
retails for $16
This has to be one of the stragest things I have ever recieved from Memebox. A pearl jelly for my face. Hahahaha. Yeah that is what it is for.  It is made with glacier water, fine aqua pink pearls and is to be used as a primer for you makeup routine. I have been doing just that and i love how plump it makes my skin. it is sort of amazing and I promise to do a video ASAP.
It comes with a sponge to apply it. I have also been using this to apply my BB cream.
 See the spatula... weird right. It is like a yogurt type texture that s very pretty.
From here you can see how opalescent it is. I looks great under makeup.. especially bags under your eyes. Speaking of eyes.... that brown smudge on my hand is not a bruise. It is the eyeshadow from above. See how the color looks off on me. ugh.
Product #7 Holika Holika Jewel-light Waterproof Eyeliner
retails for $6
I received the Brown Amber version out of some pretty fantastic option. I will say it again. If I received another brown eyeliner I am going to scream... i have so many and the color options for this one were stupendous. There was even a fun burgundy one, which i am positive would have made me look putrid, but I would have loved the option. As far as I can tell it is Waterproof, but not sweaty eyelid proof. HA.
Product #8 Holika Holika Neon Beam Nails 
retails for $4
I was so pumped I got the blue version that I won't even mention the other color options. And this stuff is awesome. I painted my toenails two weeks ago and they still look great. No chipping so far and the color really pops and does glow under a black light.

So as you can tell this box, did not disappoint. I would have bought this box purely for the Petit Jelly alone.

I purchased this box for $32.00
In this box I received $73.00 worth of goodies!

  1. How do you track the shipping on your boxes?

    1. It's really weird. You have to follow the link that they send you via e-mail and enter in the tracking number they give you in your email too. I can only track mine from when they ship it. Once it is in the US's hands I have no idea when I will get it. But it is visible while it is moving around internationally. Sometimes.. the tracking code that they give you is visible both through the link they submit and USPS tracking. I guess it just depends on how they scan it. It's weird. But I have yet to have a problem with shipping.

  2. I received my first Memebox today: The Next Best Thing in Skincare. But no instruction card in English. The containers have some English though. Excited!
