After much persuasion and the January theme of Birchbox I decided to give it a try to $10/month including shipping how could I say no! Rachel was more than thrilled that I finally gave in after using all of her favorite products for years. This past January they had a special Korean skincare box that you could opt in to. If you are unfamiliar Korean’s have developed new and exciting makeup and skincare more advanced than any products here in the US. If you are looking for more information check out Glow Recipe (great online resource with step-by-step, and you can also purchase online).
The States are finally jumping on the bandwagon and it is becoming a bit more accessible here in the US. I have seen a few products available on Target’s website and at Sephora. There were 3 products that I’ve used so far. This was a great way to try out a few great products before I purchased the full size versions.
RE:P – Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb
Retail – $41.00This was a traditional clay mask it cleansed my pores and exfoliated my skin. Overall I liked the sample but I don’t think that that I will be ordered it in a full size, it wasn’t that much different than any other clay mask’s I’ve used. I would give this a 3 out of 5 stars.
Goodal: Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling & Yerba Mate Cleansing Foam Packettes
Retail – $20.00-$40.00
There were different price points for the cleansing foams and the bubble peeling. I really liked these products the cleansing foam was super creamy and the scent was super fresh and amazing. It left my skin super moisturized and took off my makeup with no problem. The bubble masking was super interesting, when you put it on it bubbled on your skin and tingled. I used both of the products back to back my skin felt amazing afterwards. This cleanser is something I will definitely be picking up in the future. Overall both of these products get a 5 out of 5 stars!
I am really excited to try out the rest of the products in my Birchbox! I would highly recommend a subscription.
