BomiBox Luxe June 2019 Review

This month’s BomiBox is filled with ingredients to refresh, nourish, protect, and soothe your skin during the scorching hot summer months.

BomiBox has detailed info cards for each month’s box on their website. The info card provides a description of all the items included in the box and instructions on how to use them. This is great since a lot of the products have instructions that are not in English.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Serum, 1.69 oz 1 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Serum, 1.69 oz 2 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Serum, 1.69 oz 3 Front

Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Serum, 1.69 oz – Retail Value $31.90

This antioxidant-rich serum promises to enhance skin elasticity, prevent premature wrinkles, balance oil, moisturize, and tone skin. Aloe Vera is used in place of purified water which has a calming effect on the skin.

This serum has a slight citrus scent that smells great, it’s fast-absorbing, and not oily. I have a slight sunburn on my cheeks and this serum didn’t irritate my skin and left it feeling hydrated.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - Elensilia French Propolis 82 Resistem Gold Ampoule, 0.51 oz 1 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Elensilia French Propolis 82 Resistem Gold Ampoule, 0.51 oz 2 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Elensilia French Propolis 82 Resistem Gold Ampoule, 0.51 oz 3 Front

Elensilia French Propolis 82* Resistem Gold Ampoule, 0.51 oz – Retail Value $12.50

This gold ampoule is made with 82% propolis extract which is a substance created by honeybees known for protecting, repairing, and soothing skin. It also contains niacinamide to brighten skin and Resistem and berry extracts to protect against signs of aging.

I love the gold flecks in this ampoule which gives the product a luxe look and feel. It has a very light scent which I liked but the texture of the ampoule is thick, and it felt tacky on my skin. I don’t think this will work well for me during these hot summer months, so I’ll hold on to it for now and try it again in the fall.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - Pyunkang Yul Face Oil, 0.9 oz 1 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Pyunkang Yul Face Oil, 0.9 oz 2 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Pyunkang Yul Face Oil, 0.9 oz 3 Front

Pyunkang Yul Face Oil, 0.9 oz – Retail Value $23.10

This quick-absorbing oil hydrates and restores skin. It’s made with a powerful blend of plant-based oils including jojoba seed, sunflower, geranium and rosemary oils.

Thumbs down! This oil is very thick and greasy on my skin. It does have a light fresh scent. I may end up repurposing this for my hands and elbows but will definitely not be using this on my acne-prone skin.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, 0.17 oz 1 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, 0.17 oz 2 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, 0.17 oz 3 Top

innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, 0.17 oz – Retail Value $6.60

Apply this sebum control powder after makeup or sunscreen to absorb excess sebum from the skin. It helps balance oil and leaves skin bright and radiant.

This mineral powder is magical! My skin tends to get really oily halfway through a hot and sunny day. This mineral powder zapped the oil off my skin and left it feeling silky soft. I also didn’t have any issues applying this white mineral powder to my darker skin tone – it disappears once applied.

Duft & Doft Nourishing Hand Cream in Stockholm Rose, 0.3 oz – Estimated Retail Value $1.96 (Buy a full size for $9.80, found on sale here for $8.82)

This rich, fast-absorbing, and non-sticky hand cream contains shea butter and vitamins that leave skin moisturized and nourished. The rose fragrance smells great and is long-lasting.

This is one of my favorite hand creams! I have the full-size version in my purse right now. It takes your skin from ashy to moisturized in just a few seconds! It’s not greasy or sticky and has the perfect light and rosy scent.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, 1.01 oz 1 TopBomiBox Review June 2019 - Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, 1.01 oz 2 FrontBomiBox Review June 2019 - Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, 1.01 oz 3 Top

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, 1.01 oz – Estimated Retail Value $4.95 (Buy full size here for $16.50)

This trial-size soothing gel contains aloe and propolis known to help soothe irritated skin, fade acne scars, brighten skin tone and provide all-day hydration. Because it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, it’s great for acne-prone skin.

Via BomiBox, I’ve discovered and come to enjoy Benton products! This gel absorbs nicely into my skin. It smells and feels fresh and leaves my skin looking hydrated and smooth.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - I'm Sorry For My Skin Black Mud Mask -Tightening FrontBomiBox Review June 2019 - I'm Sorry For My Skin Black Mud Mask -Tightening Back

I’m Sorry For My Skin Black Mud Mask – Tightening – Retail Value $4.50

This natural clay mask is made with volcanic ash and bentonite to draw out dirt and impurities from your pores and replace it with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.

A mud mask without the mess? Sign me up! This mask was a little awkward to put on – it comes in two pieces. It also took longer than expected to dry. However, the results were great! My skin felt super clean and only slightly tight and dry, unlike other mud masks that leave my skin extremely dry and irritated.

BomiBox Review June 2019 - Leaders Ex solution Mild Cotton Mask - Aqua Coating FrontBomiBox Review June 2019 - Leaders Ex solution Mild Cotton Mask - Aqua Coating Back

Leaders Ex Solution Mild Cotton Mask – Aqua Coating – Retail Value $2.20

This mask promises to hydrate dry and tight skin leaving it smooth and radiant. It’s made from natural cotton that hugs skin to allow better diffusion of the active essence.

The best thing about this mask is how soft and breathable it is. It left my skin feeling slightly more hydrated than before. I’ve tried other Leaders masks and this one is my favorite.

The Verdict: I enjoyed trying out all the products in this month’s box. The herb serum and the mineral powder were my favorite items. I am especially impressed by the mineral powder. Where has this been all my life? Also, the hand cream is a must-try. The face oil was a fail although it does contain good quality oil so it’ll be repurposed for sure.

I liked the variety of products in this month’s box – some from brands I’ve come to recognize and enjoy. There however was only one body product and it was a small sample size. I’d like to see maybe one more body product like soap, shower gel, or body oil.

This box cost $38.99 and has an estimated total value of $87.81. This is about the same value as the last box and is double the price of the box itself. This is a great value! BomiBox consistently delivers high value and the opportunity to try a wide range of unique Korean beauty products.

I am obsessed with black culture, lifestyle, travel and art made by and featuring women of color. I also love trendy plus-size fashion and accessories, eclectic and bohemian home décor and all things self-care, mental health and fitness. My favorite box is Izzy & Liv’s Brown Sugar Box; a monthly box offering tees, accessories and lifestyle products designed for black women. I also subscribe to TheSelfCareBox, FabFitFun, CauseBox and Merkaela. Being a wife and full-time working mom, subscription boxes are one of the few things that are just for me! They are fun, convenient, reasonably priced and full of surprises.

  1. That Benton aloe gel is nice. I have a full size I got from soko Glam. I had a bad sunburn one day so I stuck it in the fridge and put it on and holy mother of relief! It was SO soothing.

    • Ret, that is an excellent suggestion! I will have to remember this since summer is still in full swing down here in Georgia

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only who thought the oil was too thick! I like to put it into my hair, since my hair is always frizzy and dry and it helps get it under control.

    • Oh yay! I like to read others reviews of the products I’m trying and so I started to second guess myself. But, my skin was like “No, girl”! LOL

  3. I got the Innisfree powder in Bomibag a couple of months ago and I was curious how it would work with darker skin because I only have my own to go by and I am about the palest skin tone there is. Like, I would like to be inclusive when I talk about such things but I just don’t have any frame of reference. But now I know, at least for this product, so thanks for that.

    • Ragan, I was super skeptical. I didn’t want to look ashy! But it disappeared. It’s awesome to come across a product that does exactly what it promises to do! *hapoy dance*

  4. I enjoy the way you do reviews. The first paragraph explains what the item claims to do, the second telling your thoughts on it. Thank you!

    • Happy to hear you’re enjoying the reviews, MzBev!

    • Thank you MzBev! I sometimes worry that I’m being to wordy. I’m a chatterbug in real life and on paper!

  5. Nice box. Great review. Would love to see you review more beauty boxes!

    • Thanks Kim! I wish there were more makeup/ beauty boxes specifically made with black women/ women of color in mind. There are mixed reviews about those that allow you to specify things like your skin tone. I would love to review more too but I would hate to end up with a bunch of products that won’t work for my skin tone.

  6. I’d love to have THIS box! Too bad it’s sold out.
