First Impressions

 

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 are snuggly packaged inside- and it is always nice to see full-size products once you tear the tissue paper away.

BomiBox All Stars Box #12 Review

Mary & May Centella Asiatica Serum, 1 oz - Retail Value $24

Centella Asiatica is one of my all-time favorite skincare ingredients, so a serum like this that's 95% Centella is going to make my skin and I very happy. This is a lightweight serum and I like to layer this with other hydrating serums. This is a little hydrating on its own, but Centella is amazing for soothing sensitive skin and irritation and keeping sensitive skin happy (it's also an antioxidant, too), so I always like to have it in my routine

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence, 100 mL - Retail Value $20

I have a lot of nostalgia for the Snail Bee line from Benton because a serum from them came in one of the first K-Beauty boxes I ever reviewed and I remember being amazed that a product that had both snail secretion filtrate and bee venom (western skincare could never). This essence has those same bad boys, but this also has niacinamide, adenosine, aloe vera, and peptides. It's actually a sensitive-skin friendly product, and it's great for acne-prone skin or those looking to give their skin a brightening boost. Since it's an essence this has a watery texture that absorbs quickly, and I feel like it preps my skin for the rest of my skincare routine.

Heimish All Clean Cleansing Balm, 50 mL - Retail Value $10

 

I’ve tried this cleansing balm a few times over the years thanks to subscription boxes, but this is a solid, no-frills performer that gets the job done without breaking the bank. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s a balm cleanser that melts into an oil as you massage it into your skin, and it emulsifies when you add water to clean away makeup, sunscreen, and dirt. I always follow up cleansing balms with a second cleanser, but this does a good job of removing tough makeup without irritating my eyes.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, 3 g - Retail Value $4.50

 

This lip mask has a cult following, and honestly, this is the product that I personally remember putting lip masks on the map- I don’t remember them being a thing before the Laneige lip mask became so popular. I really like this, and always have a jar in my drawer just because it lasts forever, but I do have a few I like a bit more than this one. This is still fantastic though! It’s nourishing and it seals in the hydration on my lips so I don’t wake up with dry lips. I also will wear it as a thick balm after doing a sugar scrub, and then I’ll wipe it off and apply liquid lipstick to make sure my lips are prepped and ready for the drying lipstick. 

Heimish Watermelon Moisture Soothing Gel, 30 mL - Estimated Value $7.63 (buy the 110 mL version for $28)

This definitely gives me the vibe that it was inspired by the Glow Recipe Watermelon pink juice moisturizer, but for all I know this could be a product that’s been around for a while. If you have tried the Glow Recipe moisturizer, this one by heimish has a slightly thicker texture, but it's definitely still a lightweight moisturizer. It's slightly cooling when you apply it and it feels like it almost melts into your skin, and I was pleased with the hydration it gave me. 

Innisfree Nail Serum - Retail Value $6

 

I think this is the first time I've received a nail serum in a K-Beauty box, so I love Bomibox for that. This is made with Jeju green tea seed oil to nourish your cuticles and nail beds, and you do need to give it a shake before applying it. I didn't find this to be especially greasy, and since I tend to always have dry hands my skin soaked this up fast.

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essential Mask - Retail Value $1.79

I've used this sheet mask before, but I was happy to use it again. It's made with galactomyces ferment filtrate, aloe vera, and cucumber extract, so it's a dream for sensitive and dry skin. It has a thicker essence that soaks the thin sheet mask material, so I actually ended up squeezing out the excess serum from the pouch, applying it to my face and neck and then applying the face mask on top. The sheet mask was a perfect fit for my face, and the ingredients left my skin glowing.

Ample:N Ceramide Shot Mask - Retail Value $3.99

Ample:N sheet masks can be hit or miss for me, but this one was an actual gem. The mask itself was almost a perfect fit for my face, and it felt cooling on my skin the entire time I wore it. As I was laying back I could literally feel my face relax while I was wearing this, and the ingredients list that included three different types of ceramides was really nourishing to my skin. I would happily do this mask again if this appeared in a future box.

Key Takeaways

Bomibox said this month that they were trying to curate a box that featured cult-favorite and holy grail products and ingredients, and overall I think they did a pretty great job. I can honestly say that all of the products worked for me, and none of them were items that I felt had questionably high values for their performance. In fact, this was a box full of all-star performers, if you will. If you're looking for a monthly beauty box comprised exclusively of K-Beauty products, Bomibox is one of the best out there.

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.
