Each baggie comes with an info card detailing the month’s selection.


Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch – $4 (on sale at Memebox for $2.50)

There are gel masks for your face and under eye, so why not a gel mask for your lips? I love its ridiculously large pink lips. It smells a faintly like strawberry (I tasted it on accident, it’s sweet) and packs a big moisturizing punch after use! My lips felt plump and moisturized while my lip lines were temporarily diminished. I think this would be great to use when prepping for high-maintenance matte lipsticks!


Etude House Pink Vital Water Facial Emulsion 0.5oz – $1.30

I find this sample bottle adorable! This is an emulsion that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving residue. The fragrance is light and unoffending. It is indeed lightweight but doesn’t sink into my skin as fast as I would like. However, I do think it’s great as a light moisturizer.

UNT Aqua Nettoyant Cleanser 0.3oz – $1.20

UNT is a Taiwanese online skincare brand. This hydrating cleanser is known for its high concentration of amino acids that cleanse the skin while maintaining a high moisture level. I like how clean my face feels after using the cleanser but I can’t stand the smell. I interpret it as some sort of strong floral mixed with a chemical undertone– not my cup of tea.


3W Clinic Intensive UV Sunblock Cream – $8?

This is a full size tube of SPF 50 sunscreen! It smells a little funky but only if you try really hard to sniff it out; the scent disappears quickly. The sunscreen is creamy, lightweight, and applies very smoothly. It sets pretty fast to a comfortable matte finish and works pretty well under makeup. I like this so much I may switch out my current sunscreen for it.

Verdict: I enjoyed trying every product in this month’s 3B Box. My favorite is the 3W sunscreen; a close second is the Tony Moly lip patch. This month’s retail value is around $14.50, which is definitely on the low end of 3B Boxes. That said, somehow it didn’t feel like a bad month because I liked most of the included products. I do hope next month will have higher value!

What are your thoughts on this month’s 3B Box?

  1. I read on another blog that the sunblock is $4 USD so I dont think this box even equalled the cost we paid. This is my first month and I am disappointed. I might try one or two more months but probably wont continue since I live in NYC and can explore the stores on my own to find what I like.

  2. Was thinking of canceling this sub, (just because I have too many) but I was so happy with it this month that I’m considering keeping it. I love the fact that they sent a sun screen with a 50 spf.

  3. What are the ingredients of the sunscreen? Is it a chemical sunscreen or physical?

  4. at least we didn’t get 7 of the same foil packets -_- i’ll give it one more month. i thought i already cancelled but now reading these comments i remembered sending an email to cancel my subscription but they have yet to reply. it’s been a few weeks now 🙁

  5. I have been trying to cancel but can not get any response to contact messages and I can not find anywhere on website to cancel. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Try to update your card with one that only has a couple dollars on it…..I keep like 5.00 on my H&R block card,so when I dont want a subscription anymore I update it with this card….when they try to charge me they cant,so they just end up canceling my subscription.

      • Great idea but when I went to website there was no where to edit my card info. Thank you and will remember this for the future.

        • Your welcome…..send them a message and tell them you want to update your card on your profile and they will send you the link…that is what I had to do and than I used the card with 5.00 on it and I have not received any more boxes, lol it sneaky but it works for the boxes that are hard to cancel

    • You’ll need to email them at [email protected].

      I had the same thing happen to me. I sent a message to them via their Contact portal on the website, and I never received a reply. I was also still charged for the next month’s bag.

      I then emailed them regarding this, and they replied back very quickly, apologizing for the oversight, and immediately refunded the charge and cancelled my subscription. I understand mistakes happen, and I appreciated the level of CS they provided.

      • Thank you for your help. I just sent an email so hopefully they will get.

  6. This is the best 3b bag I’ve seen in months! I’d resubscribe if they kept this up, but most months have been so blah for me I cancelled it.
