I think it might be helpful for me to describe my skin type before we dive into the amazing products in this box. I have fair and dry skin that rarely breaks out. My main concerns when choosing a skin product are that it adds hydration, helps with pore size reduction, and has anti-aging properties. I value effective treatments over brand names or over the top packaging, and I am currently obsessed with Korean skincare, which makes me especially excited about this limited edition box. Now, on to the items!
Sulwhasoo Activating Mask– Estimated Value $12.00 (Buy 5 Masks for $60.00)
This mask was high quality and straightforward. Sometimes you don’t need the bells and whistles! It has a herbal scent that I liked and left my skin feeling hydrated and bouncy. The fiber mask fit my face better than some others I have tried recently. I would absolutely consider adding this to my sheet mask rotation.
LANEIGE Moisturizing Foam Cleanser, 6 fl oz. – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $23.00
I really thought this cleanser felt so luxurious. It lathered up beautifully and left my face makeup free and soft. I have been using a silicone scrubbing brush in my facewash routine over the last month and this product worked well with it. I appreciate how clean my face felt after using and was pleased that for such an effective cleanser it did not strip my skin or leave it feeling dry. It has a beautiful light scent that reminded me of something in a memory that I can’t quite place.
LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask, 0.3 fl oz. – Estimated Value $2.78 (Buy 2.7 fl. oz. for $25.00)
As someone with skin that only gets drier as fall turns to winter, I am always appreciative of a sleeping mask. This is a little lighter than I prefer (I get so dry in the winter I have honestly considered rubbing a stick of butter on my face), but if your skin isn’t SUPER dry you will love this! It is a clear-ish gel that smells really fresh. It might be a product I revisit in the summer when my skin is less needy for moisture.
Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask, 0.84 fl oz. – Estimated Value $6.21 (Buy 3.38 oz for $25.00)
This was basically a botanical dream mask. It smells of fresh green leaves and flowers. It is a very heavy clay mask that is a beautiful pale green color. This super thick formula has some grit to it, but I personally resisted the urge to use it as an exfoliant. I find clay masks really useful for cleaning out my pores, but they can be drying for my skin. I solved that problem by following this mask with the Sulwhasoo Activating Sheet Mask that also came in this box. It was a two mask night. I am boujee!
AMOREPACIFIC Vintage Single Extract Essence, 0.16 fl oz. – Estimated Value $5.73 (Buy 4.05 fl.oz. for $145.00)
This was the most intriguing item in the box for me. This little vial is filled with a brandy colored liquid that has little to no scent. It is mainly comprised of fermented tea leaves grown in the AMOREPACIFIC gardens. The liquid is then buried in the ground for an additional 50 days. That is crazy! The production of this product is as fascinating as the product itself. I thought it was a toner, but it is actually meant to be used after your favorite toner and before your moisturizer. I applied it with a cotton round and though I didn’t notice an immediate difference, I am a firm believer in green tea and I know anti-aging products can take some time to really kick in. I am so here for this!
IOPE Germa Gentle Cica Cream, 1.69 fl. oz. – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $32.00
I like this cream already. It is scent free, light, and works well under my foundation as a lazy girl’s primer. It also boasts ingredients that help with skin roughness, which I find incredibly attractive since my skin has a little texture that I would like to smooth out. It is 10-free, meaning it lacks a ton of the harmful ingredients found in so many other creams. The texture of this cream reminded me very much of Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentraté which I adore.
AMOREPACIFIC The Essential Creme Fluid, 1.01 fl oz. – Estimated Value $32.99 (Buy 3.0 fl. oz. for $98.00)
I had heard major hype about this product and as a green tea lover, I was so thrilled to find it in this box. It has the strangest texture! It is super fluid but feels like a heavy cream as you rub it in. The closest description I can give is that it feels like a formula that has sunscreen in it, though this one does not. I personally like it! It also has a slightly sweet matcha smell that I can’t get enough of. It also worked well under my makeup and left my skin feeling great.
Verdict: This Limited Edition GlossyBox has a value of about $115! That’s amazing for a $35 beauty box! If you are into no-frills high-quality Korean skincare that is great for your skin, this box is a must-have! I am literally so excited to use these products over the next few weeks and see my skin the happiest it has ever been during a cold season.
