I actually bought this a while back (in May), but I know it’s still in store because I saw it last time I was there. Therefore I am saying June on the title just for designation, it’s not a monthly box as far as I can tell. I’ve been meaning to get this post up for ages but just have not gotten around to it.
Remember, if you want to keep up to date on what I’m buying or loving or just plain think is cute then check out my Instagram. I have become a bit of an addict so I regularly post there. I am @cutepretybeauty (only one ‘t’ in pretty).
Okay, so on to this Beauty Box, I found this randomly in my travels at the local Home Plus. Home Plus is a big chain of department/supermarket stores here in Korea. It was bought out a few years ago by the British company Tescos which was great for us because it means that we get a lot of Tesco branded products in store. I did just read recently that unfortunately Tescos suffered a large loss with this side of the business and are now going to sell it off. I hope it goes to another Western company so that we can still get some international foods in.
It was a bit of a surprise when I found this and I was not sure what it was, they did not have much signage up even in Korean. As far as I can tell it does not seem to be a subscription box but, who knows. Also not a monthly one as it was still there the next month with the same products. We will see if they have any new ones in the future, I will have to remember to check every now and then.
The box was 49,000 won which is quite pricey. That is about US$45 dollars. Now they did have an example of what was inside the box but love surprises so I just took a gamble, did not look at the example, and hoped for the best. Basically I just figured as long as I got my money’s worth then I would feel OK about the purchase.
So lets have a look at what was inside, it’s mostly Korean products but not exclusively. There are six items in total, 4 large and then 2 sheet masks.
– It’s Skin Prestige Crème Hand D’escargot
– Reni Furterer Paris Forticea Stimulating Shampoo
– Skinfood Food Therapy Tomato Sunscreen SPF36/PA++
– Isa Knox Aura Luminant Cream
– Ryeo:hui Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask Cucumber x2
They are all full size products, in the end I think that I got around about my money’s worth so I’m happy. No major savings or anything, which of course is one of the reasons we like Beauty Boxes. Not sure if I would purchase again, because I’m such a sucker for this kind of thing there is a good chance I would. But because it is quite expensive, I might have to actually check out what is in it next time before I part with my money.
