Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the May Bomibox:
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence
A hydrating essence formulated with snow algae extract that calms and hydrates your skin even during cold winters. Hydrasalinol and ceramide create a barrier that helps lock in moisture while moringa extract soothes the skin. This moisture-boosting essence preps the skin to better absorb the rest of your skincare products. Apply after toner in skincare regimen.
It’s Skin Collagen Emulsion
Use after essence. Rich in marine collagen, the emulsion restores elasticity and volume for healthy looking skin. The patented Hydra II provides ample nutrition & moisture.
3 Innisfree X Emoji No-Sebum Mineral Powder Anniversary Limited Edition
Use to set makeup, correct dull skin tone, or to touch up areas that are too shiny. Formulated with sebum control powder. Keeps balance between oil and moisture to give you a refreshing finish and baby soft perfect skin.
I just started using a setting powder so I feel like this arrived at the perfect time. I use it on my eyes before applying my eyeshadow and it works like a charm.
The Face Shop Lovely Me Hand Cream
This super cute hand cream nourishes your skin with light but highly moisturizing content. The non-sticky, highly absorbent formula keeps skin soft and silky at all times.
How stinking’ cute is this little hand cream!! It’s so cute I almost don’t want to use it. The scent is a mixture of baby powder and flowers. It’s very pretty.
Holika Holika Aloe 92% Shower Gel
Holika Holika Aloe 92% Shower Gel is a gentle and moisturizing body wash for all skin types. It contains 92% Aloe Vera leaf extract that helps to soothe and hydrate skin. The refreshing lather offers a deep clean without leaving skin feeling tight since the aloe extract replenishes lost moisture. For the best results follow up with the soothing gel.
Aloe Shower Gel is a must-have during the hot Summer months. It’s the perfect way to refresh hot skin after a day in the sun. I love that they included this.
B. Lab I am Sorry Just Cleansing Cleansing Water
This is no wash type cleansing water that gently cleanses away makeups and harmful factors from your skin by delivering fresh and moisturized skin. After dispensing a sufficient amount onto cotton pad, remove makeup by gently wiping from inner to outerareas of face. When removing point makeup, press gently onto closed eyes and lips for 5~10 seconds prior to wiping. Leaves skin fresh and moist with no need to rinse off with water.
This particular product sounds very exciting to me. I love anything that will make my nighttime skincare routine easier, and this sounds like it will do just that. I was so intrigued that I did a little more research on the ingredients and found that none of them are questionable. A majority of the ingredients are plant extracts and that makes me very happy. I also love the fact that you don’t have to rinse it off. Quick and easy, just the way I like it.
A’Pieu Milk One Pack
Use after toner for 10-20 minutes. This delicious essence filled mask is packed with ingredients to hydrate, brighten and soothe skin. Key ingredients include milk, strawberry and pearl extracts.
Mediheal Collagen Essential Impact Mask
A collagen-packed hypoallergenic facial sheet mask. Features a silky Cellulose sheet made of 100% pure cotton concentrated with essence. Also contains marine collagen, marine elastin & Vitamin E. Helps revitalize fatigued skin while enhancing skin elasticity. Boosts moisture retention & soothes irritated skin. Stimulates skin renewal & fills in wrinkles. Skin appears firmer softer smoother plumper & younger looking
- To use: After cleansing & toning fit the mask onto face. Leave for 15-20 minutes & remove. Pat the remaining essence into skin.
This mask sounds amazing. It really does! And it only contains one questionable ingredient as it isn’t paraben free. I want to do a little more research on said ingredient before using it, but the mask sounds like something that my skin would love.
Symphony Beauty Makeup Cleansing Wipes
Hit refresh. These gentle facial wipes instantly cleanse and remove makeup and oil while they nourish and hydrate. Our must-have and must-pack. Use these wipes to take off your makeup before your everyday cleanser. Then you won’t end up with makeup all over your face (and in your pores) when you’re washing.
I started using cleansing wipes on a daily basis and have definitely noticed a positive change in my skin. As it says above, I think it is important to remove your makeup before using your regular cleanser.
Bonus: Alive Lab Multi Ice Cream
Cool down the skin heated by troubles and murUV rays. With rich minerals, the absorption happens quickly, and the product includes Canadian glacial milk containing much oxygen which is good for skin with a lot of heat. Also, galactomyces ferment filtrate manages dry and sensitive skin to be moist and healthy.
Bomibox Review May 2017 – Final Thoughts
Wow…..I am much more excited about Bomibox than originally anticipated. I am actually very impressed with this subscription and I’m not usually one to get excited about Korean Beauty Products. I am super picky when it comes to my skincare routine, and was kind of expecting to gift most of these items. But…..after taking the time to go through each item and do the proper research I feel much more comfortable with them and have a feeling I will be keeping them all for myself. Here’s what I love about Bomibox:
- cute packaging
- quality products
- informative product card
- great branding
- reasonable price
- website is easy to navigate
- you can do an ingredient analysis for all of the products on www.cosdna.com
- they have introduced me to a number of new products and brands
Needless to say I ended up loving my first Bomibox, and I certainly wasn’t expecting to. This wonderful little subscription has opened my eyes to the world of Korean Skincare and I am actually quite excited about it.
