January's BirchBox Korean Beauty

Getting my BirchBox each month is starting to feel a lot like Christmas! I mean I know it’s coming , but I still get so excited! So for the month of January, BirchBox gave its members the option of the pre-selected box that’s based on your beauty profile or the special edition,  On Trend: Korean Beauty.  I’m so happy I chose the Korean Beauty! I’ve enjoyed the products so far and I might buy the full size versions too! Come take a look at my box to see all the goodies I received….

What’s in my BirchBox?

Goodal

Phytowash Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling |Full-size $33
January's BirchBox Korean Beauty
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
There are few things as satisfying as baby-smooth skin, but harsh peels and exfoliators can leave our faces seriously irritated. Packed with natural ingredients that soothe instead of strip, this foaming cleanser from Korean brand Goodal doubles as both a peel and a scrub to gently remove dead skin with salicylic acid. Green tea extract brightens and evens our complexions while natural yerba mate leaves skin soft and nourished.


Manefit

Manefit Beauty Planner Cucumber | Full-size, $10
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
When our body is feeling dry and “bleh,” we guzzle as much coconut water as we can. But when our face is dry and dull? We reach for these ultra-nourishing sheet masks from the mask masters at Manefit. Perfect for parched skin, the microfiber sheets feature cucumber to soothe and hydrate, plus antioxidants to even skin tone and reduce puffiness.

RE:P

RE:P Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb | Full-size $41
January's BirchBox Korean Beauty
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
From casually touching our nose to diving into a chlorine-filled pool, we face lots of potential skin irritants everyday—which can then transform into buildup, clogged pores, and (shudder) pimples. Fortunately, we have this natural, soothing clay mask from the skincare experts at RE:P to leave us with a squeaky-clean slate. True to its name, the mask features real fresh herbs to gently exfoliate while kaolin clay works like a magnet to draw out impurities and remove debris. The result? Reduced redness and a smooth, happy, calm complexion.

 

Goodal

Waterest First Essence | Full-size $30
January's BirchBox Korean Beauty
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
We’re going gaga over the innovative beauty products popping up from Korean beauty brands, and this moisturizer with a fun jelly-like texture doesn’t let us down. A favorite from Goodal, the soothing moisturizer purifies and hydrates skin with a blend of natural botanicals. Double-fermented lotus flower extract deeply hydrates while hyaluronic acid helps skin retain moisture. The best part? We don’t need to fly across the world to get our hands on it.

IPKN

IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer | Full-size $28
January's BirchBox Korean Beauty
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
Great foundation requires, well, a great foundation. This creamy SPF 15 primer creates a smooth, radiant canvas for makeup, refining pores and enhancing skin tone. And thanks to the blend of nourishing fruit extracts and shimmer pearl powder, your skin will glow whether you’re wearing this under foundation or under nothing at all.



My Thoughts?

I really enjoyed January’s BirchBox. I thought was a great idea to feature Korean skincare items. The cleansers were gentle yet effective and I loved that they included a makeup primer too! You don’t want to cleanse your skin and then gunk it all up again. Good thinking! 🙂
 
My favorite out the bunch is the Goodal Phytowash Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling. It felt LOVELY to come home after a long day, unwind, and massage my facial with a gentle exfoliate. It’s like having my own at-home spa!
