Review: September Bomibox

Thursday, September 22, 2016

I've been getting a lot of subscription boxes lately.  They are just so addicting.  I haven't gotten a beauty one in a long time, so when I heard about Bomi Box, I was really interested.  At first I wasn't going to get it because it was $35 (with their promo code).  It still seemed like a lot to me.  The box says they include 8 full sized and deluxe sample sized korean beauty products.  I'm usually afraid of new boxes because they are just starting out and you have no idea what they would include.   But Bomi Box is really active on social media and interacts with their followers.  They answer everyone's questions and seemed genuinely excited to bring bomi box to their customers.  They offered 2 sneak peeks for their September Box.  It said it would include a COSRX product and a Laneige Sleeping Ball.  I haven't been up to date on korean skincare but it seems like COSRX is really popular among korean skincare fanatics so I was excited to try something from this brand.  And I like Laneige products so I'm sure I'll like this sleeping ball (overnight mask).  Then they mentioned that all Founding Members who order their first box will get an extra gift.  Ok, that sold me.  I like getting freebies.  I was also worried the box would not ship to me on time since I was going on vacation in the middle of September.  I wanted to be able to unbox and share it when everyone else received theirs too.  At the time they didn't share much information about where they were shipping from and when.  I was assuming beginning of the month.  When they announced they ship in waves in the middle of the month, that got me worried.  But thankfully I got an email that my package shipped on 9/18 and had a tracking number.  Thank god they use 2-Day Priority Shipping.  I received my order on 9/21, just one day before my flight!  And now I'm writing this post while I should be packing :,D  I'll make this quick.

Cosrx Salicyclic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser
Use as a second cleanser.  This creamy bubble cleanser contains salicylic acid & botanical extracts which removes dead skin cells, blackheads, and whiteheads.  Zits be gone.

This is my favorite product in the box.  I think I found a new favorite brand.  I can see why this brand is so popular among Korean skincare bloggers.  I have combination skin that is also acne prone and this is the type of product I’ve been looking for.  If this product and brand works well for me I’ll be looking out for it in the future.

Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner
Use after your second cleanse as a toner mist.  Natural AHA (Pyrus Malus Apple Fruit Water 10%) and BHA in mineral water (jeju samdasu) enhances skin flexibility and removes dead skin cells with Allantoin for moist, smooth skin.

3 out of 8 items in this box are Cosrx.  While it might seem to biased for some I have no problems with that.  I’m excited to try more Cosrx products as a first time user.

Innisfree Jeju Hand Cream (various)
Use when your hands are dry and after washing.  Shea butter providers super moisture for dry hands with powdery floral scent. Bestseller.

I don’t really care for hand products but hand creams are still useful.   I like the brand and it’s a nice size to carry in a purse.

Cosrx Holy Moly Snail Mask
Use after toner or first essense.  Rich in snail mucin and red gingseng water, this mask provides super charged nourishment, hydration and improves the elasticity of your skin.  Boing.  Boing.

So after you use your new Cosrx cleaners and then Cosrx toner, you can use this Cosrx mask!  This mask sounds like its jam packed with nutrients so I’m very excited to try it out.

Laneige Sleeping Ball (Various)
Use before bed.  You’ll get either a Firming, Hand, or Face Sleeping Ball.  These hydrating sleeping balls work like overnight masks to give you soft hydrated skin when you wake up.

My random ball was the Hand one.  Like I said, I don’t really like getting hand products, I feel like it’s a waste.  I’ll probably try to use mine on my face anyway!  These look like very cute and portable masks.

Mediheal Lightmax Ampoule Mask
Use after toner or serum.  This juicy cellulose mask packs a lot of hydrating and brightening ingredients into its cute packaging.  It feels like putting on a bottle of serum.  Makes your skin moist, plump and bright.

Cute packaging, should be fun to try.

Missha Line Edition All Around Safe Block Essense or Mild Sun
Use after moisturizer.  A cult favorite, this is one of the most recommended multifunctional sunscreen lines for a reason.

I love sun block so I’m glad I’ll be able to try a new one.  I got the mild sun one.  I’m not sure what the difference is with the Essense Sun one but mine has 30 SPF.  If the other one is high, I wish I got that one instead.

Hemish Lip Palette Mini Kit
Apply with a lip brush or your finger.  This 5 color mini kit by one of the new classic brands in Korean Beauty will make the cutest addition to your makeup bag and give some shimmering tint to your lips for some night out glam.

I haven’t heard of this brand before but so far the packaging and lip colors look cute. 

Bonus: Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint + Cosrx Sample
Love the bonus!  I love using lip tints so I’m glad to have another one on hand.  The shape is kind of thick for carrying out.  There’s an applicator and I tested it on my hand.  It’s very long lasting. 

Overall, this box is a 10/10.  I’ve never had a box where I loved everything inside.  Each item was something I would have wanted to buy on my own if I heard about it.  I’m happy I will be able to try a lot of new and popular products.  Also, props to Bomibox for the packaging and overall contents.  The box is baby pink with shimmery gold lettering.  They used floral wrapping paper and had a nicely printed postcard with descriptions of all the products.  They chose products that had super cute packaging that makes for great pictures for bloggers when sharing their box on social media.  While $35 is a lot to spend every month, the box does contain more than $35 worth of products.  So I would not subscribe to it every month, but when I feel like getting a nice surprise for myself.  Their sneak peeks and bonuses would also help me decide if I want to get their next box.
