Bomibag June 2019 Review
There was no information card included in the package. You used to be able to find them on the BomiBox site but this month’s bag was not listed.
The bunny bag was a respectable size this month and I managed to not cut its ears off while opening the package (which is something I have done in the past).
This is a product I’ve actually tried before and finished off at least a couple in full size. I have kind of oily skin and I’m not into the dewy look – I prefer a matte finish. And this, applied over foundation, can help with that, even after a whole day at work. One thing I don’t know is how this works on darker skin tones as I am pretty pale and it isn’t noticeable on me.
Duft & Doft Stockholm Rose Hand Cream (0.3 fl oz) – Estimated Value $1.17 (Buy 1.8 oz for $6.99)
This is a new brand for me but it looks like it is available at CVS (at least the website) if you are interested in trying it out without paying shipping. It is a lighter weight hand cream and so it really isn’t for intensive moisturizing, but it’s a nice scent and consistency for summer and I will use it up. (I think we got a hand cream last month, too, but I just finished that up so I don’t mind receiving another.)
Elensilia CPP French Propolis 82% Resistem Ampoule (15 mL) – Retail Value $12.50
This is an unusual product. It is super, super thick, and it has little bits of gold foil floating in it. I’m not sure the point of the gold because it doesn’t absorb into the skin. Anyway, once you actually manage to get some of this up into the dropper dispenser, you really only need one or two drops to cover your whole face. It goes on kind of goopy but actually dries nicely. I put makeup on over it and didn’t have any problems. This has propolis, which contains some minerals and anti-inflammatory ingredients (not vegan, though, it is produced by bees) as well as niacinamide (for brightening and/or reducing redness) and some antioxidants that may also help fight free radical damage. This is a good product for irritated skin, I think, especially when paired with the next item.
Here is another product with propolis, which we’ve already discussed, and aloe which is soothing and moisturizing. I don’t know that this has the right consistency to layer with the ampoule product, but if you used that one in the morning, especially on hot, summer days, this one might be good to use at the end of the day. If you have tried other products with a high percentage of aloe, you will be familiar with the texture.
Verdict: I calculated a total value of $35.54 for the June Bomibag. That’s one of the best values I’ve seen for this subscription – so good, in fact, that I can almost overlook the fact that this arrived nearly three weeks into the next month (and without a proper address label). It includes an old favorite (the powder) and something that is likely to become a new favorite (the ampoule) and actually I am pretty sure I will use up every item this month.
