Time for the January Birchbox rundown, which means it's the first Birchbox of the year!
This month I was excited to try the specially curated K-beauty box. I had received a number of Memebox boxes last year and really enjoyed them so I thought I'd give this "On Trend: Korean Beauty" box a try as well.
If you're new to Birchbox, it's an online monthly subscription box that sends you 4 to 5 samples of beauty, hair, skin, and lifestyle products based on your profile questionnaire. It costs $10 a month and includes hundreds of different brands -- both well known and up-and-coming.
Here's a look inside...
This soothing mask uses organic herbs and kaolin clay to reduce redness and deeply cleanse pores. Massage onto face to gently exfoliate. Rinse off after 10 minutes.
IPKN Fresh Cream Radiant Primer | Buy online $28
Rich in fruit extracts, this nourishing SPF 15 primer creates a smooth, luminous canvas for makeup. Wear alone or under foundation for an around-the-clock glow.
TONYMOLY Delight Tony Tint - Red | Buy online $6
This lightweight lip color dries quickly for a matte, flushed finish that lasts all day. Dab a vivid stain into the center of lips for a pretty color boost.
Manefit Beauty Planner Cucumber Mask | Buy online $10
Infused with cucumber, this sheet mask soothes, tones, and restores moisture to dry skin. Peel off plastic, then smooth onto clean skin. Don't rinse.
Goodal Waterest First Essence | Buy online $30
This high-tech formula includes hyaluronic acid and fermented lotus flower to help skin retain moisture. Tap onto clean skin until absorbed (essence is the key to dewy skin).
BONUS! Goodal Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling & Yerba Mate Cleansing Foam Packettes -- We've added in this Bubble Peeling (buy online) that removes dead skin for a bright complexion, plus a Cleansing Foam which balances oils and detoxifies the skin.
So that's my January box! Remember in-depth product reviews come each Friday.
