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 - it's always nice to see full-size products once you tear the tissue paper away.

BomiBox "Spring is in the Air" Box Review

Heimish Pink Clay Wash off Mask, 150 g - Retail Value $18

This is a mask made with kaolin and bentonite clay, and that's mixed with zinc and iron oxide and soothing calamine. I can be a harsh judge of clay masks because my dry skin is picky, but I liked how gentle this mask was. I was dealing with some small breakouts on my chin when I tried this out, and I felt like it was effective at treating my breakouts without drying out the surrounding skin.

Mary & May Tranexamic Acid + Glutathione Eye Cream, 1 oz - Retail Value $20

 

Tranexamic acid has become more popular as a brightening ingredient lately, and this eye cream is also formulated with antioxidants to lighten the appearance of dark circles and keep skin even. This eye cream has a thick texture that felt a little heavy on my skin in a different way from typical eye creams. It still sank into my skin, but it took a little extra gentle massage. The texture of this eye cream wasn't my personal favorite, but I appreciate that I didn't have any pilling issues.

Jumiso Pore-Rest AHA/PHA/BHA Blackhead Wipe Toner Pads, 70 ct - Retail Value $19

 

Did anyone else buy Stridex pads from the drugstore when they were teenagers, hoping that would fix their acne issues? That was way before I truly understood hydrating and exfoliation, and I'm pretty sure those things were packed with drying alcohol that did not get along well with my sensitive skin. These Jumiso pads are what my teenaged-skin needed but I didn't know existed (to be fair, it may not have existed back in 2009). Along with three different chemical exfoliants at different molecular weights, these toning pads also have glycerin, evening primrose, willow bark, and other botanicals. These were gentle to my skin and didn't cause any redness, so I only have thumbs up for them.

SKINFOOD Avocado & Sugar Lip Scrub, 0.5 oz - Retail Value $8

Lip scrubs have been popping up in recent subscription boxes for me, but I don't mind it. This one from Skinfood is a sugar lip scrub packed in a base of shea butter, avocado oil, and jojoba oil. It's incredibly nourishing, so once I wipe away the sugar granules my lips have more than enough moisture from the formula and I don't have to follow up with a secondary balm.

Farm Stay Calamansi & Shea Butter Hand Cream, 50 mL - Retail Value $6.66

This hand cream is made with shea butter, olive oil, grapeseed oil, aloe vera, and lime extract. It was pretty hydrating to my skin, but I didn't really notice a citrus scent. I applied this before bed when a greasy residue wouldn't be as bothersome, but luckily this hand cream left no such thing behind.

SKINFOOD Sous Vide Paprika Sheet Mask and SKINFOOD Sous Vide Cabbage Sheet Mask - Retail Value $2 each

 

I've tried so many sheet masks now that I get excited when I discover new sheet mask lines from familiar brands! These masks from SKINFOOD were lovely. The masks are made with a cellulose fabric that is very thin and fit my face really well, and both masks were nicely hydrating for my skin. I've never seen paprika as an ingredient before so I thought that was neat, and both masks are also made with licorice and ginger extract.

Value – Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $44.99

Value Breakdown:

  • Heimish: $18
  • Mary & May: $20
  • Jumiso: $19
  • Skinfood: $8
  • Farmstay: $6.66
  • Skinfood Masks: $4 ($2 each)

Everything in the box adds up to $75.66, which is a pretty decent value for the $44.99 box cost.

Key Takeaways

I really like my BomiBox subscription, and I thought this month was one of the better ones. The Heimish mask was a good fit for my skin, and I appreciate how gentle the Jumiso pads were. The eye cream, hand cream, and lip scrub rounded out the box nicely, and I enjoyed trying out the Sous Vide sheet masks. I also appreciated that all of the products had values that I found to be pretty reasonable - sometimes products will be for sale at a price that I just feel doesn't match the performance of a product, but that wasn't the case here.  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.

YAH – I am so happy everytime u post reviews esp. for this & other k-beauty box(es)! IMO…not a huge fan of the contents of this one, for me personally. I don’t need stuff with clay cause my HG is VERY inexpensive…I have super-sensitive skin & my hands get bad fIare-ups of eczema, so there are only so many things I can use that can be tolerated. But, the hand cream sounds good though! So I am usually an eye-cream enthusiast but the eye cream included just doesn’t sound all that appealing and don’t care for the packaging (which isn’t a dealbreaker) -just doesn’t add anything good unfortunately…I think my fave was the Skinfood Avocado & Sugar Lip Scrub! (I think I will have to do a quick search to track some down!) I like the Skinfood brand. Which brings me to the masks….Hmmmm….Interesting! That’s all I have to say about that. LOL. Anyhow, thx for sharing your review, Jessica!

I used wipes either by Noxzema or Clean & Clear … I just remember a dark blue container. Simpler times! Yes, they were very drying!

I never bought Stridex pads when I was a teen, but I did use Sea Breeze. Just thinking about it… 😮 !!! I still remember how the vapors alone would make my eyes water, but “beauties must sacrifice” would roll in my head each time I used it, lol. Plus, at the time I truly thought all that alcohol was good for my skin because it was “cleaning” it. Ha!!! I’m glad I finally got it… in my mid-30’s. 😀

(I did stop using Sea Breeze a long time ago, but I still thought alcohol in toners (the kind that I could feel stripping my skin) was okay for my skin until I discovered beauty boxes 🙂 )
