Each month's box comes with an info card and how-to instructions. It also came with a random Hello Fresh coupon!



Tonymoly Mango Hand Butter - $12 (on sale at Jolse for $7.63)

This is one of the cutest and best smelling Korean hand creams I've ever received. It smells like really yummy mango and supplies my hands with creamy but lightweight hydration. I like the handy squeeze tube too.


Tonymoly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch - $4 (on sale at Memebox for $2.50)

I recently got this hydrogel lip patch in July's 3B Box and had a blast with it. The lip patch really does hydrate and plump my lips, making them a smooth canvas for finicky matte or liquid lipsticks that typically accentuate fine lines and dry patches.

Mediheal Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask - $3 (on sale at Memebox for $2)

This is one of my favorite sheet masks and I'm happy to receive another one. It contains tea tree leaf oil to control sebum production and soothe skin. The essence is very watery and the mask fits my face well. After use I'm left with soft but non-sticky skin.


CosRX Blackhead Silk Finger Balls - $5

I've received these before and find them fun to use. The balls are made of 100% silk. Soak a ball in water for 2-3 minutes, then put it on your finger and massage it around targeted areas. Despite being fun to use, I don't get a lot of blackheads so I can't attest to how effective the treatment is.



Tosowoong Soft Touch Sun Cream - $18 (on sale at YesStyle for $8.90)

This is an oil-free and non-sticky SPF 32 sunscreen that's appropriate for sensitive and troubled (acne-prone) skin types. It contains green tea, mulberry root, portulaca, and lotus extracts for extra skin care. The sunscreen smells pleasant and feels lightweight, but it does leave somewhat of a creamy finish that makes my face feel oily after a couple of hours. I think I will use this for the rest of my body instead.

Verdict: I really liked this month's Mishibox. All the items were either full size or single-use. My favorite has to be the Tonymoly Mango Hand Butter-- my mouth waters just thinking about it! The total retail value this month is $42, which is around twice the cost of subscription. There are online place where you can get these products for cheaper, but I still like the value of Mishibox.

I just wanted to comment on their awesome customer service, I’m a new subscriber and there was a bit of an error with my order. I emailed their CS and they replied within 2 hours! The error ended up being on my card company not Mishibox but they were So helpful! Really appreciated! Been watching some K-beauty boxes for awhile and decided to go with this one, looks like fun quality products without the goofy little throw in items I’ve noticed in other boxes. Pretty stoked to get my first box!

How strange, I left a comment the other day about how I received a substitution for the sunblock on this box, but days later my comment still hasn’t shown up?

This month I received everything you did with my Mishibox, with one exception. Instead of the sunblock I received a sample size of Iope moistgen emulsion, and a sample of Iope moistgen softener. The sunblock is on the info card, so maybe they ran out? Not complaining, I’ve got plenty of sunblock right now. The full size of the Iope products seems to run around $30 so i don’t feel like I got shorted at all.

Another great box from Mishi! I too am loving that hand butter and I’m really happy with the fact that they included sunscreen. I’m always happy to get a mask – sheet or otherwise – in any sub box!

I also get 3B and got the lovely lips patch from both boxes. My daughter & I are planning an ‘at home spa day’ and are looking forward to trying this product. So happy that they were coincidentally included in both boxes this month!

Regarding shipping, I got in my sub just in time to not be charged for shipping, although I do have to pay state tax. I don’t mind because this is fast becoming my fav sub! I’m already looking forward to Mishi’s August bounty of K-beauty treats!

Great review Nancy! 🙂

I’m in USA and never pay shipping! I’m only billed $19.95 flat rate charge right around the first of the month! Fyi

If you were a subscriber before Mishibox started charging shipping, then you’ll still receive your box without having to pay the $3.95 shipping fee.

I appreciate your honesty in mentioning where to get a couple of these for less elsewhere.

It really makes me trust your review.
