It’s time for my January Birchbox Unboxing! Just a reminder: Birchbox is a monthly subscription with a base price of $10/month. If you subscribe to the base subscription you get 4-5 samples per month, however, if you up your plan to $30/month then you will also get 2 full-size products in your box each month. Either way you can participate in the “Sample Choice” each month, for no extra charge where you can choose an item in your box (or get a guest editor’s box) for that month. For more information on Birchbox click here.
For the month of December Birchbox has partnered with Charlotte Cho, co-founder of Soko Glam for this month’s Editor’s Choice box. The sample choices for this month were all Korean Beauty themed. As I have no real experience with Korean Beauty, I decided to go with the Editor’s Choice. The Editor’s Choice box contained a small bottle of Goodal Waterest First Essence, a tube of IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer, a tube of RE:P Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb, a bottle of TONYMOLY Delight Tony Tint in Red, and one Manefit Beauty Planner Cucumber Soothing + Moisturizing sheet mask. There was also a bonus duo of Goodal Yerba mate Bubble Peeling and Goodal Yerba Mate Cleansing Foam.

Those were all the items in the January Korean Beauty Birchbox. While I felt that this box was an excellent way of getting started in Korean Beauty I ultimately have decided that this will be my last Birchbox for awhile. The boxes are just so hit and miss and I’d rather save my $10/month for something like the Target Box or the Macy’s/Sephora Boxes that I am on the waiting list for!
