At just $12 per month, The 3B Box is probably the most affordable Asian beauty box around. The boxes can include skincare, hair care, cosmetic or nail products. Typically, boxes contain 4 or 5 deluxe samples...sort of the Asian equivalent of Birchbox or Ipsy.
My first 3B Box arrived via USPS about two weeks after placing the order. The goods were packaged in a custom folded piece of white cardboard.
The box was very loosely taped so the products were showing through on all four corners. Miraculously, nothing fell out. The box definitely needed more tape!
Inside are four beauty products, three of which look like full sizes. They were packaged in a purple drawstring organza bag.
Here is the out-of-the-bag group shot:
The largest item is a tube of Aqua Therapy Hand Cream from Leaders Mediu. Although English was clearly not the first language of the packager, there is sufficient English labeling to let us know this is for moisturizing and that it contains organic olive oil. The metal tube reminds me of French-packaged cosmetics that I've received in other boxes.
Do you know what a "lash essence" is? Neither did I; that's why we need access to Asian beauty products! This is called Luxe Eye Lash Essence and it comes from RiRe. It's packaged like a mascara but it is actually colorless. The formula is packed with nutrients that help to strengthen and lengthen lashes. Why didn't we have a product like this in the U.S.?
Last out is Honey Bee's AC Control Spot Remover from Secret Key. This can be used on blemishes or problem areas to eliminate bacteria and heal irritated skin. Honey bee venom and propolis are ingredients known for their anti-bacterial properties. (Who knew?) I'm not sure but this looks like a full size tube.
