The 3B Box: May 2015 Unboxing & Review

Since it's now June, and my new 3B pouch will be in the mail soon, I thought it'd be a good time to get my May review up for you all to see!

For those of you who are just joining my blog, The 3B Box is a fairly new monthly subscription service (started in December) providing the must-have Asian beauty products to those who may not have their readily available for purchase for just $12 a month! 3B is based in the United States, and currently only ships within the States, but they are working on branching outwards internationally (so keep an eye out on their Facebook page for updates). I have more details about this subscription and how to sign up in my first review of 3B.

Let's take a look at the May 3B Box...

Here's the info card, indicating what each product is and how to use it. As you can see, this is the first month that there is less than 5 products in the pouch. 

SkinFood: False Lashes
These are probably the most beautiful falsies I have ever received. I love the design of them, and that they're not overly long. They make my lashes look more full and thick. They're not over-the-top for me, they're beautiful and I wouldn't mind more!

TonyMoly: Lovely Eyebrow Pencil
I received this eyebrow pencil in the color "black-brown" which is perfect for my black brows, but since mine are also so thick already, pencils just don't work for me. This seems like it would be a really nice pencil though, and if there were variations of the shades sent out, I think a lot of people would have been happy with this product.

Etude House: Baking Powder BB Deep Cleansing Foam
I was disappointed to see another foam cleanser this month. Like I said in my April review; 
"The pH of these types of cleansers are far too high to be beneficial to your skins' natural moisture barrier, and can do much more harm than good. A good pH that helps protect your skins moisture barrier is anywhere between 4.5 and 6.5 - and I've found a range between 4 and 5.5 if you're acne prone to help keep your skin from being a breeding ground for more bacteria."
The ingredients of this cleanser aren't terrible if you're double cleansing, but because of the pH I would not use this on your skin. 

TonyMoly: Tangerine Whitening Hand Cream
I received this hand cream in a past Memebox and loved it, so I'm going to copy from what I had wrote about it previously;
"This is a super thick hand cream with the most powerful citrus scent I've ever encountered. And I'm not complaining - I love it! It's super thick, absorbing nicely, and providing lasting moisture to my dry hands. The smell is so uplifting, I can't get enough on slow days where I need a boost of energy. "
I am not an avid user of hand creams, but these are always great. After receiving the peach cream a few months ago, and now the tangerine, I hope 3B continues to send out a fruit-shaped hand cream every few months from now on.
