First Impressions

white info sheet on white background with QR code

This box doesn’t come with an info sheet, but it does have a card with a QR code you can scan. The contents of the box come wrapped in tissue paper so when you open the box it feels like you’re unwrapping a present- and it is always nice to see full-size products once you tear the tissue paper away.

BomiBox August 2021 –Fall #7 Box

Hyggee Natural Repair Serum, 30ml – Retail Value $19

 

I have a fond nostalgia for Hygge- this was one of the first brands I discovered when I started reviewing K-Beauty boxes, so I always smile when I see them in a box. This serum features antioxidant-rich ginseng extract along with peptides, probiotics, Centella Asiatica, and a whole host of botanical extracts designed to soothe, nourish, and revitalize tired, dry skin. I appreciate that this didn’t leave a sticky finish and absorbed pretty quickly into my skin, and I found the mild herbaceous scent to be pleasant. This is a really solid performing serum for the price, and my sensitive skin really enjoys it.

SNP Prep Peptaronic Cream, 55 ml – Retail Value $11.99

 

SNP is really promoting their Prep product line- I have been seeing them everywhere in K-Beauty boxes. That’s not a bad thing, though. I really like the brand as a whole, and this moisturizer features six kinds of peptides, five forms of hyaluronic acid, and panthenol. This has a thicker texture that felt like a hug for my skin, and I appreciate how affordable this hydrating and soothing moisturizer is.

Miguhara Hyalucollagen Essence Mist, 80ml – Retail Value $16

 

I’ve been around the K-Beauty block a time or two. That’s why I am always pleasantly surprised to see a product I have never heard of in this box. If a product calls itself a mist, I want to feel like my face is being hugged by a cloud rather than being hit with a stream from a water hose- and this affordable mist is definitely cloud-like. The mist covers a good amount of surface area on my skin and feels really refreshing when I spray it on. I also appreciate that this didn’t burn my eyes- I recently had to destash a pricy facial mist because even when I applied it with my eyes closed, my eyes would still burn. The formula has green tea extract, propolis extract, and a hydrating ingredient called “hyalucollagen” that I am assuming is a compound of hyaluronic acid and collagen, but I can’t confirm that for sure with my internet search. I like this- it’s easy to spray and go, and it works well both as just a refreshing mist but also as the toning step in my skincare routine.

Neogen Real Flower Cleansing Calendula Water, 20 ml – Estimated Value $1.47 sample of Neogen cleansing water with yellow label

Neogen is another brand I am always happy to see. While I prefer full-size products to minis, there is no denying this is a cute yellow bottle of fun. This cleansing water features calendula flower and extract, centella asiatica, panthenol, and other botanicals to gently clean your skin. This isn’t a high-powered cleanser- I would use it as the first step in my morning routine rather than try to remove a full face of makeup with it. If you have sensitive skin, you may like this- it is incredibly gentle, but it does have fragrance as the very last item on its ingredients list.

Neogen Real Vita C Serum, 0.35 oz – Estimated Value $11.87

The other mini we received from Neogen is this vitamin C serum. The formula features 22% sodium ascorbyl phosphate (a more stable form of vitamin C) along with niacinamide, citrus extracts, and vitamin B5. The texture is thin and doesn’t feel sticky on the skin, and I appreciate that it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Laneige Korea Moisture Basic Care Trial Kit – Retail Value $5

 

I will always happily take Laneige products, even if they are in mini form. I will admit, though, that both of these products are pretty similar to me. The emulsion has a slightly thicker texture than the skin refiner, but both were incredibly lightweight. I do think these were hydrating- I think if you’re a fan of their classic water sleeping mask, these serums may be up your alley.

Somebymi Real Snail Skin Barrier Care Mask – Retail Value $2.50

white and pink sheet mask

This mask was really enjoyable. The sheet mask material was really thin and fit my face incredibly well, and that good fit allowed the essence to really absorb into my dry skin. This is made with snail extract along with panthenol and hyaluronic acid, and I was satisfied with how hydrated and refreshed my skin felt once I was done wearing this sheet mask.

Somebymi Real Vitamin Brightening Care Mask – Retail Value $2.50

yellow and white sheet mask

The performance of this mask was very similar to the snail mask, with the only true difference being the featured ingredient. I don’t hate that, though- if a mask is good I am always happy to use it. The brand claims that the vitamin C in this sheet mask can help with brightening your skin, and while that is indeed a known benefit of applying vitamin C topically, you’re going to need to use it consistently in your routine to see results. Other than that, this was a satisfying hydrating sheet mask.

Key Takeaways

This was another solid box from Bomibox for me- I appreciate that we received three full-size products, and the smaller items were from well-known brands like Laneige and Neogen. In a perfect world, I would love to see full-size products from Laneige in a future box, but even if that doesn’t happen I trust Bomibox will continue to curate boxes that my skin likes and my K-Beauty-loving heart loves. I appreciate that this box gives me the ability to discover new brands (I’ve never heard of Miguhara before) while also seeing familiar faces like the Neogen cleansing water. If you’re like me and enjoy discovering K-Beauty products, this is definitely a subscription box worth checking out.

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.
