BomiBox K-Beauty Subscription June 2020 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 Caviar 80 Renovage Gold Cream, 50 g – Retail Value $34 (on sale for $22)
This is an anti-aging moisturizer made with 80% caviar extract along with peptides in the form of glycosaminoglycan and niacinamide. It has a rich texture, but when I use only a little bit it spreads out and covers a lot of surface area on my skin. This moisturizer leaves my skin feeling soft and supple, and my dry skin drinks it up. When I woke up the morning after using this for the first time, I noticed that my skin looked more radiant- I’ll take that any day.
Elensilia-CPP Caviar 80 Lux Repair Eye Cream, 20 g – Retail Value $25 (on sale for $20)
This is the corresponding eye cream to the moisturizer sent in this box, and it has a lot of the same star ingredients with a texture that’s more lightweight for the delicate skin around your eyes. I was able to use this as a morning eye cream with no issues, but at 25 I’m really using eye creams as a preventative measure than a corrective one.
SkinRx Lab MadeCera Cream, 15 mL – Estimated Value $10.80 (Buy the 50 mL version for $36)
I’ve actually had a full size of this cream before, and it wasn’t through a subscription box. I’m happy to see it again- this has a lot of firepower with madecassoside, niacinamide, ceramides, and adenosine. This is a great moisturizer for those with dry and irritated skin as well as inflamed acne, and I’ve been using it along my jawline and mouth to fight the irritation from wearing my mask every day.
TONYMOLY Clean Dew Lemon Brightening Cleanser, 180 mL – Retail Value $7.50
Boy does this subscription send cleansers frequently- like every month frequently. There’s only so much cleansing I can do to my face, but I shall forge ahead and test them all anyways. Considering the really affordable cost, I thought the ingredients list on this cleanser was actually quite nice. The second ingredient is allantoin, which has hydrating and soothing properties, and there is also lemon extract, green tea, witch hazel, and tea tree leaf water. I think this cleanser is better suited for those with oily skin types, however, because this did leave my skin feeling a bit tight.
Cell Factory Power Aqua Ampoule
I couldn’t find this online, but I still thought it was fun. To use, you mix the two capsules together until you have a combined thick liquid, and then you apply it to your skin. This ampoule has peptides and hyaluronic acid to provide a boost of moisture, and I enjoyed the DIY aspect.
Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner, 20 mL – Estimated Value $1.80 (Buy the 200 mL version for $17.99)
This is a hydrating toner made with 50% hyaluronic acid, birch sap, and aloe. The ingredients list is rather fantastic, and the price for the full-size version is hard to beat. I like layering hydrating toners like this one in my morning routine to add moisture without heaviness, and this one fits the bill perfectly.
I’m dealing with a lot of acne these days along my chin and jaw, so I reach for sheet masks that target blemishes more often. What I like about masks like these is that they’re not as harsh as a spot treatment, and the rest of my face gets some moisture while my blemishes get some TLC. The cooling aspect that comes from putting a wet sheet on your face helps to soothe inflammation, too, and overall this was a solid mask.
Mediheal is a very popular sheet mask brand in South Korea, and I’ve tried this mask before. This is a super moisturizing mask that I was able to wear for a long time without it drying out (which is honestly what I prefer), and my skin was definitely hydrated once I took this off.
The Verdict: While it can feel a bit repetitive considering how often BomiBox sends out cleansers, this is still a box I look forward to every month due to the ability to discover new products or find cult-favorites inside. I enjoyed both Elensilia products the most, but overall I thought this box has a solid curation that covers your skincare basics. Value-wise, the value of everything in this box except the ampoule added up to $81.40
