BomiBox May 2021 Review – Self Care Everyday #4

BomiBox has detailed info cards for each month’s box on their website. This included card has a QR code you can scan to be taken to that info sheet to look up everything inside your box.

Huxley Cleansing Foam Deep Clean, Deep Moist, 100g – Retail Value $25.00

I am a fan of the Huxley brand, and I haven’t seen them in a subscription box in a while. This cleanser is from their popular Secrets of the Sahara line, and it features the signature cactus extract. This was a thick and creamy cleanser, and it foams up nicely when water is added. One thing that was interesting was the light periwinkle blue color- I believe it comes from the blue lotus and blue agave in the ingredients list, and it added a little something extra to the overall experience. After cleansing, my skin didn’t feel tight or dry, so this definitely did its job. 

 

The Plant Base AC Clear Magic CICA Cream, 60ml – Retail Value $14.80

This is a thicccc cream- exactly the kind of texture I want to apply to my face when my skin is irritated or inflamed. I’ve liked previous products from The Plant Base that I have tried, so I wasn’t surprised to find that I enjoyed this. The formula features a heavy dose of centella asiatica extract (55% to be exact), and it also has lovely ingredients like green tea, beeswax, niacinamide, and squalene. I have been using this as a sleeping mask on top of my retinol moisturizer, and even though this is heavy straight out of the tube it absorbs fast and doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. Layering it with other moisturizers didn’t cause any clogged pores or breakouts, either- this was a winner all around for me.

 

Elizavecca Face Fruit Hell Pore Toner, 200ml – Retail Value $14.80

Elizavecca has a very unique brand aesthetic- you can always count on their product names and packaging to stand out. This toner is designed to help keep pores clean, and the formula features lactic acid, niacinamide, and glycolic acid to achieve that goal. This also does have drying alcohol pretty high up on the ingredients as well as added fragrance, so this probably isn’t the best toner for those with sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin so I only tried this out on my nose, and it felt like it worked the same way as other exfoliating toners. 

 

Haruharu WONDER Honey Green Aqua Bomb Cream, 38g – Retail Value $14.50

This is a super lightweight gel moisturizer- if you told me it was a serum I wouldn’t call you a liar. It absorbed almost instantly when I applied it to my skin, but the heavy perfume fragrance lingered even after I was done applying it. I definitely wouldn’t classify this as “intensely hydrating,” but it did add a bit of moisture to my skin.

 

Haruharu WONDER Maqui Berry Anti-Oxidant Cream, 38 g – Retail Value $14.50

This has a creamier texture compared to the Aqua Bomb cream, but it still was very lightweight. This also was similarly fragranced (I don’t detect a particular scent note so much as just an overall perfumey smell), and while I love having antioxidants in my routine this moisturizer left my skin feeling tight like there was a film on it. That feeling of this never fully absorbing combined with the strong fragrance made this product a pretty big miss for me. 

 

TonyMoly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch – Retail Value $4.50

I have used these lip patches from Tony moly multiple times in the past- it’s a simple lip gel, but when I wear it for 20 minutes my lips do feel a touch softer and more hydrated. The gel is on the thicker side so it’s going to slide down your face if you’re moving around while you wear it, but it’s perfect for sitting back and relaxing. 

 

Elizavecca Aqua Deep Power Ringer Mask – Retail Value $2.90

I’ve tried this sheet mask before, and I like it. The sheet mask material is super thin, which meant when I applied it the mask hugged the contours of my face well for a comfortable fit. This is definitely a more saturated mask compared to others I’ve tried, but I embraced the cooling moisture this gave my skin (and appreciated that it didn’t drip down my neck).

 

Elizavecca Hyaluronic Acid Water Deep Power Ringer Mask – Retail Value $0.99

This mask was pretty similar in performance to the other one included in this box- both focus on hydrating the skin, this just has hyaluronic acid as the featured ingredient. This was equally enjoyable, and my skin drank in the hydration this offered.

 

The Verdict: You never really quite know what you’re going to get from Bomibox, and that held true this month. I really don’t know why three different moisturizers were included in one month, including two from one brand. I can’t say I am completely surprised based on past boxes, but I do wish there was a touch more thought in the curation of this box. That aside, I did really like the Plant Base moisturizer that was included, the cleanser was nice, and I enjoyed all of the sheet masks. I wouldn’t call this a bad month from Bomibox, but I am left scratching my head a bit sometimes. Value-wise, everything this month added up to $91.99.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

I love sheet masks, but I purchase them through iHerb or through Facetory, but that Cica cream looks divine (the one that you said was heavier).

Jessica Hapak

That AC cica cream has been a real treat to use! Especially because my skin has been extra sensitive lately (I think due to seasonal allergies- is that a thing?)
