Chocolate Mania Memebox review

  Memebox Special 45 Chocolate Mania beauty box review, codes

You think you have seen the best Memebox ever, when wham comes another one that far surpasses it. I had maintained that the Cacao box, reviewed here, was their best effort yet. Presuming that this box could not be bettered, I almost did not buy the Chocolate Mania box! But sense prevailed at the last minute, and I had a code to use up.
I prefer white chocolate for eating, but love beauty products based on regular brown chocolate. With the smell of chocolate hitting the nostrils as soon as the package is opened, the Special #45 Chocolate Mania beauty box comes with not five or six, but eight full-sized products. All of which I can put to good use. There is everything in here that you need for a chocolate facial at home. And this box cost a mere $23!
The two chocolate-based Memebox have only served to make me want more chocolate-based beauty products, so I hope they release a third edition soon, featuring chocolate body butter, body lotion and a face serum.

Read on for my unboxing of the Chocolate Mania beauty box from Memebox. 



The contents of the Chocolate Mania Memebox are
  1. Neogen Code 9 Gold Cacao Cream 50ml
  2. Missha Cacao & Cream Facial Scrub 95g
  3. Skinfood Cacao Hand Balm 50g
  4. Zamian Super Gold Cacao Pack 150g
  5. Shara Shara Tempting Avocado Chocolate Massage Cream 100ml
  6. Binucook Cacao Choco Pie Soap 70g
  7. Purederm Choco Cacao Collagen Mask x 1
  8. Dearberry Miss Mona Lisa Eyebrow in 01 Choco Brownie

As I said, eight full-sized products, all of which smell of chocolate! Now for more about each product.

 

Neogen Code 9 Gold Cacao Cream 50ml

Meant to tackle severely dehydrated, rough skin in winter, this cream contains gold (!), cacao seed butter, mango seed butter, shea butter and olive oil, all of which are naturally derived. I love the smell of this butter and it is gentle enough to use on all skin types. I am going to be using this on my face from tonight and will tell you how  it goes.

Missha Cacao & Cream Facial Scrub 95g 

Whoa, I only have two facial scrubs in my cabinet now -  one from Memebox and the other from Soap & Glory - so I am glad of more backup. This contains cacao extracts and looks and smells amazing. It is meant to remove whiteheads, blackheads and dead skin gently. I have tried this just once and found that it is not harsh, and the granules of cocoa dissolve completely. Love this!

Skinfood Cacao Hand Balm 50g

Take a look at the sheer chocolatey indulgence of this hand balm! It looks and smells just like a tub of soft chocolate dessert that you dig into. It is somewhat greasier and waxier than other hand creams, but not in a bad way. Immediately after application, my hands feel the way my face feels after I apply Porefessional - silky, smooth and primed.

Zamian Super Gold Cacao Pack 150g

This face pack contains a blend of 99.9% cacao and gold. It is soft and spreads over very easily, and is equally easy to wash off once it dries. The WondeRuci Cacao Pack from the first Cacao box was a nightmare to remove and I had to scrape it off the face with a spatula. This one is my favourite chocolate mask!

Shara Shara Tempting Avocado Chocolate Massage Cream 100ml

With avocado oil and cacao and banana extracts, this nourishing and firming cream is to be massaged  on the face for five minutes before rinsing it out. Think chocolate facial. I tried it only once before my 'flu worsened and I can tell you it was a very pampering five minutes!

Binucook Cacao Choco Pie Soap 70g

I am going to have to resist licking this. It smells and looks like those Choco Pie cakes you get in the supermarket (the ones that come in the red box and have a white filling). It goes into my shower, where I have just finished a Lanoa soap from a previous Memebox.

Purederm Choco Cacao Collagen Mask x 1

What is a Korean beauty box without a sheet mask? This contains cacao and collagen extracts and provides instant hydration while firming up the skin. Will use over a weekend.

Dearberry Miss Mona Lisa Eyebrow in 01 Choco Brownie

Possibly the only product in the box that does not excite me as much as the others do, but that is because I have quite a few eyebrow products now, thanks to the All About Brows box and a few others I bought elsewhere. Once you use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade or Benefit BrowZings or Gimme Brow, you don't really get to like the Korean brow products, which is what has happened in my case. This goes into my travel bag just because. The shade  is suitable for brunettes.

Summary and codes

Easily the best Memebox I have seen so far, this contains everything you need for an at-home facial - a cleanser, a scrub, a massage cream, a face pack, a sheet mask and a cream for after-use. Where else are you going to get eight full-sized products for $23? I cannot wait to treat myself to some chocolatey pampering over a weekend. The chocolate-based Memeboxes have  sold out quickly enough, but if ever they release one in the future, I highly recommend buying it as soon as you know it is out there!
Use code E9RYOX or MN3Y95 when you buy your Memeboxes, for $5 off your order of $30. You can use only one code. Check out all the Global boxes here, all the Superboxes here, all the Value Sets here and the Memeshop here

  1. hey renu.....Awesome box it...I agree 100 %; I loved the contents of this too...I received mine today....
    I tried cacao scrub and loved it :)
    Also, the cacao brightng mask frm cacao box- To remove it easily- What I does is - spread ur entire face with water..and swirl in circular motions and use more water in between to wet your hands...This swirling motion helps remove the mask easily...and you can easily give a nice massage to face andneck this way :) try it next time...You will like it :)

    I am considering going for this box, Renu. If I do, I'll give away the brow color since I have red hair. I'm so glad I read your review. I'm trying to decide between this one and the rose one. Have you reviewed or tried the rose box?

  4. All of this looks amazing and makes me want chocolate. I'm usually not a big fan of box subscriptions but wow, this one looks worth every penny.

  5. Basically what Meghan said :) I LOVE the scent of chocolate, maybe more than the taste, lol. It's just so different and complex! The scrub, Neogen cream, and massage cream sound particularly amazing.

    No, I didn't buy it, I'm not a fan of rose-scented products TBH. I've heard it had plenty of skincare products to try out though!

    I love RoseRoseShop... which reminds me, I need a dozen Missha foot masks.
