Cat Ear Headband – Retail Value $5?
I couldn’t find this item on their website so I had to estimate the value. This headband is made with a super soft cloth and has cat ears on the top. I would say the design is really cute – but it may not be for everyone. The back is stretchable and it did a good job of holding my hair without squeezing my head.
Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder – Retail Value $9.50
I love Innisfree products! And I’m very familiar with this versatile powder as it was a staple of my routine when I lived in Asia. This powder is finely milled, provides a matte finish, and has a light citrus-y scent. You can use this powder throughout the day to touch up your face, mattify your lipstick, or even use it as a dry shampoo on your hair. I’m glad I received it in a box.
LookAtMe Nose Pore Strips – Charcoal – Retail Value $1.20 (Buy 5 for $5.99)
If you are unfamiliar with these pore strips, you wet the area around your nose thoroughly, then apply the strip and wait for 10-15 minutes until it dries, then peel it off. It should remove all the blackheads around your nose area. This strip does just that! My nose appeared to be much smoother and my pores are less visible. I wish there was more than one strip per box though!
Mizon Vita Lemon Calming Cream – Retail Value $23
Good to know for swaps – this item has an inner foil seal.
This moisturizer is infused with skin-soothing ingredients like castor oil, witch hazel extract, and hyaluronic acid. It came with a tiny spatula which you can use to scoop the cream instead of using your finger. The best part is that this lightweight gel absorbed almost instantly into my skin and left it plumped and balanced. The light lemon scent is pleasant as well. The big plus? You can also use this cream as a sleeping pack!
Bobmiki Aura Pang Pang Blusher – Pure Coral – Retail Value $12.99
This item is a big miss for me. The color didn’t show up on my face or even when I tried to swatch it on my arm. I think your skin has to be really light for this blush to show up.
Elimina Boobkiss 365 Beauty- Aid Beta- Bio Gel Mask Pack – Retail Value $5.99
This item is really unique! It’s basically a firming mask for your chest. It’s said to remove the films from both sides, apply the pack for 30-40 minutes, then tap your skin so that it absorbs the remaining essence. I understand the idea, but the mask kept slipping off throughout the process, and I didn’t notice any difference within one use. I don’t think the size of the mask would fit everyone too. This item is another miss for me.
Verdict: The total value of this box is $57.68, which is more than twice what you pay for it, but not as much as their promised value. This month’s box felt a bit off for me because I usually like everything they send. Overall, it’s still a great box if you enjoy Korean beauty products. I am looking forward to next month’s box after I saw the spoiler!
