BomiBox K-Beauty Subscription November 2019 Review
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.
Elensilia CPP Collagen 80% Intensive Eye Cream, 20 ml - Retail Value $20
This had a gel texture that I wasn’t expecting, and it was very occlusive- the skin around my eyes felt locked in with moisture after using this. Keeping the skin around my eyes hydrated is really my only eye-care concern at the moment, so this is perfect for me.
Jumiso Fresh Vitamin Serum, 1 oz - Retail Value $17
I’ve only tried face masks from Jumiso before, and I have seen this serum on my Instagram in more than one place. I’m excited to try it- the very first ingredient (aka the ingredient with the highest concentration in the formula) is sea buckthorn extract, which is a powerful source of both vitamins and antioxidants for your skin (and also the source of that gorgeous orange color). This also has ingredients like niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and Centella, so while it’s fighting free radicals and brightening up hyperpigmentation it’s also adding some soothing nourishment to your skin. This layered well under products in my routine, and I like using it in the morning so the antioxidants work with my sunscreen to fight free radical damage.
Enough Collagen Moisture Essential Cream, 50 ml
For some reason, based on the packaging I thought this would be more gel-like in texture than thick and creamy. I was wrong- this has a mega moisturizing formula thanks to the hydrolyzed collagen, Centella, shea butter, and chamomile. I enjoyed using this on my face as a night cream, but I think I’m going to actually designate it solely as my neck cream (using products on my neck is definitely a 2020 goal of mine!).
Enough Collagen Moisture Essential Mist, 100 ml
This mist (from what I can tell considering the lack of information in English) is just a basic mist made with hydrolyzed collagen to add moisture to your skin. I’m a big fan of using toners with a mist nozzle, and this was gentle and layered well.
A’Pieu Hamamelis Cream, 50 ml - Retail Value $15
This product was a miss for me, simply because it isn't suited for my skin type. This cream is 77% hamamelis (also known as witch hazel), and it also has niacinamide (to brighten) and clary sage oil to improve oily skin and the appearance of pores. Neither of those are really concerns of mine, but it wasn't irritating to my skin so that is always a win.
Keep Cool is a brand I really like, and this cute baby bottle of lotion (it's a little thicker than regular serum, but I use it after my serums and before my heavier lotions) contains 51% bamboo water and 7 forms of hyaluronic acid. Thanks to our resident scientist, Ragan, I know that the multiple forms of hyaluronic acid just breaks down to one single hyaluronic acid because of science and equilibrium. However, my skin still likes hyaluronic acid, and I like this lotion.
TheFaceShop Real Natural Mask in Lotus - Retail Value $2.20
Lotus flower extract is a great ingredient when you're wanting to soothe your skin and give it a boost of antioxidants. This mask was a bit basic, but my skin still liked it (and that is all that matters, right?).
A'Pieu Watermelon Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask - Retail Value $2
I've tried this mask more than once thanks to past subscription boxes, but I am not mad at seeing it again. This is made of a thicker material that some may not like (but I don't mind), and it has ingredients like watermelon extract, cucumber, and aloe. I have tried enough from this brand to know I will pretty much always enjoy an A'Pieu sheet mask, and that holds true here.
The Verdict: BomiBox is still a new box for me, and as a K-beauty lover I really am enjoying it. I appreciated that so many well-known brands were featured, and I received a wide assortment of useful beauty products. K-beauty values need to be taken with a grain of salt- you can always find products cheaper on some website, but they may not be reputable or will take a very long time for international shipping. That being said, I feel like I got a great deal for the cost of the box, and my value estimates total $59.52 without taking into account the two Enough Collagen products.
