BomiBox K-Beauty Subscription “Fall Fixes” Review
As the weather cools for fall, your skin can start to lose moisture and become dry and irritated. This month’s box features products to keep your skin moisturized, soft, and smooth.
BomiBox has detailed info cards for each month’s box on their website. The info card describes 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.
Benton PHA Peeling Gel, 70 ml – Retail Value $16.00
This peeling gel works in two ways. Naturally-derived cellulose provides physical exfoliation and PHA is a chemical exfoliant. It promises to leave the skin smooth and moist.
I get so nervous using peeling gels! But because I’ve received a similar product in a previous BomiBox, I knew what to expect this time. This peel did a phenomenal job on my dry flaky skin. The best part was that it wasn’t irritating. It left my skin feeling smooth.
Formulated with Jeju volcanic clusters, this powerful pore cleansing foam absorbs sebum and purifies pores. It works best on oily skin and enlarged pores.
My nose is the only part of my face that is very oily with enlarged pores. Generally, cleansers strong enough for my T-zone will severely dry out the rest of my face. So, I used this cleanser just on the oiliest parts of my face. I saw an almost immediate difference in my nose!
Pyunkang Yul Mist Toner, 100 ml – Retail Value $13.20
This toner promises to soothe red sensitive skin. The mist delivers a cooling effect and moisture to the skin.
I haven’t been a big fan of the Pyunkang Yul products but I liked this toner. It didn’t notice a cooling effect but it did seem to calm my skin.
Huxley Secret of Sahara Cleansing Oil Deep Clean Deep Moist, 15 ml – Estimated Value $3.60 (Buy a full-size 200 ml here for $48.00)
This antioxidant-rich cleansing oil gently removes makeup and impurities from the skin. Made with prickly pear cactus seed oil and cactus water, it leaves skin clean and smooth.
This is a super tiny sample which is a bummer since I really liked this cleansing oil. It left my skin feeling clean without being irritating or over-drying. My skin had a nice and healthy glow after using it.
Made with Centella Asiatica, allantoin, and aloe extracts, this mist calms irritation and fights inflammation. The moisturizing and refreshing mist promises to keep skin glowing all day long.
I’m a fan of the Keep Cool products and they do a great job refreshing your skin and makeup throughout the day. My only problem is that this has such a wide mist. The entire top half of my shirt gets misty when applying this product.
A great night moisturizer, this lavender gel lotion moisturizes and hydrates skin. It’s fast-absorbing, non-tacky, and locks in moisture. It’s also safe for babies and kids. This is another great product in a tiny sample size. I found this moisturizer to be fast-absorbing. It did a great job hydrating my skin leaving it incredibly soft and smooth.
This unique face mask has two parts. The heart-shaped gold foil patches provide intensive spot care and the mask, full of essence, calms and hydrates skin. In addition to being hydrating, this mask also has anti-aging properties.
This was a fun mask to try! It took a bit of finagling to get the hearts in the right place but the mask itself was easy to apply and sort of contoured to my face. I usually don’t notice much difference in my skin after using masks but, in this case, my skin did appear to be slightly more hydrated.
This mask promises to turn dull skin clear and smooth. It contains glutathione and niacinamide to make skin brighter and glossier.
I would never use a product that claims to whiten my skin. I have been told that “whitening” doesn’t mean the same as “lightening” in Korean beauty products. However, this product contains glutathione which reduces and inhibits the formation of the melanin in the skin. It’s a shame that such a product exists – especially from such a popular brand.
The Verdict: Aside from the super tiny samples and the whitening mask, I enjoyed this box. Benton products are becoming my new favorite. I loved the peeling gel! The Huxley cleansing oil was my second favorite. It left my skin with a healthy glow. I’ll also continue using the innisfree pore cleansing foam on my nose and whenever my skin gets super oily.
Going forward, I’d like to see BomiBox continue to offer products from awesome brands like Benton and Huxley, include deluxe sample sizes and not the tiny samples found in this month’s box, and exclude any whitening products that have actual bleaching agents from their boxes.
This box cost $38.99 and has an estimated retail value of $64.80. Compared to recent boxes, this box has less retail value and is not quite double the price of the box itself. The value of the box has been trending downward lately. However, it is still a good value.
