3B Box - August 2015

The 3B Box (Beauty Beyond Borders - three B, get it?!) is a new(er) beauty subscription that sends out a curated selection of Asian brands every month. I originally saw this box on After the 9 to 5 and was intrigued, so I signed up for the waitlist. I managed to get in on the fun and received my first box!

The 3B box is $12 per month. With subscription boxes, you usually receive minis or deluxe samples. I was pleased to get a full sized mascara and eye cream in my first box! I have tried to give some of the products a few tries before writing this up, but here's everything that came in the box.

  • Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask in Mango - I love sheet masks! I've never tried these Missha masks before, so I happily gave it a try. The mask smelled just like a fresh, ripe mango. The fit on the mask was nice too, not overly wide or long. However, the mask didn't do much besides give my face some extra moisture. But the fresh mango scent was very, very nice. This mask is currently listed on RoseRoseShop for 70 cents.
  • RiRe Luxe Long & Curl Mascara - I have trouble with mascara simply because I have short, thin lashes. No mascara gives me the amount of length I need to look like I have a nice set of lashes, which is why I opt to wear false lashes a lot of the time. This mascara gives me a decent amount of length, though not much volume. The wand is weirdly shaped, it's more of a short, round loop instead of a long brush like other mascaras I've tried. I'll keep using it, but I don't think I'd repurchase this on my own. The full size mascara is on RoseRoseShop for $4.67.
  • Secret Key Starting Treatment Eye Cream - I'm currently finishing up a tub of eye cream, maybe I'll try this one next! I feel like I never have to buy an eye cream, since I always get samples from online orders, or items in boxes like this. This is a full sized product, which is really nice. RoseRoseShop has the full size for $7.07.
  • TonyMoly Delight Tony Tint - I'm not super big into lip tints, so it's nice to get a mini of one to try! I haven't given this a whirl yet, but I'm excited to in the future. These tints are supposed to be good for doing a gradient lip effect that is pretty popular. This mini is valued at about $4.00.
The total estimated value of the box I received is $16.44 - not bad! I paid $12 so I got my money's worth. I am excited to see what the next 3B box contains!

  1. This kinda sounds right up my alley, since I want to try out Korean skin and makeup! I'll have to sign up on the waitlist.
