Korean beauty is definitely having a moment right now here in the US and if you’re about to embark on discovering what the hype is all about, then you want to check the newest K-beauty subscription box in town! Mishibox (pronounced me-she).
Based in Stephens City, Virginia, Mishibox recently launched their subscription services in June and we’re all ears! I got first dibs on their June boxes (I heard it sold out like hot cakes) and I can tell you that need to watch out for this beauty box!
Box subscriptions have always been fun, convenient and cost-effective method to discover brands from all over the world without breaking the bank and thanks to Sylvia (Mishibox’s CEO) and her love towards Korean beauty products, we now get to indulge ourselves and enjoy a monthly surprise of the hottest and latest K-beauty in the US!
There are two plans available for subscribers — annual (
$239.40 $227.40 ) and monthly ( $19.95 $18.95) and prices include FREE shipping within the U.S. and territories. If you live outside the U.S., you might want to join their International Wish List since it in their plans to go worldwide, so don’t miss out.
So what does Mishibox offer?
- 4-6 combination of curated deluxe and full sized products
- All products descriptions and usage in English
- All ingredients posted in English online at the end of the month
- Access to their awesome customer service team
I am actually delighted to read about the English translation because not all companies or brands translate their ingredients or usage on their packaging and finding the English version online can be very tricky and tedious. So kudos to Mishibox team for adding this important feature since this is a big deal!
And who doesn’t love deluxe sample sizes plus full-sized products thrown in? The best of both worlds in a box and don’t forget you get FREE SHIPPING too, for $18.95 ($19.95 starting in August).
Shopping wise, I received a tracking information on my box so I was able to stalk it online.
I wasn’t sure what I was getting in the box and resisted the temptation to explore online as I’d rather not spoil the surprise — and boy was I in for a wonderful surprise!
There are 6 products altogether for June’s Mishibox with 3 deluxe samples and 3 full sized products.
Banila Co. (deluxe sample)
I’ve been wanting to try Clean It Zero cleansing oil balm for ages because I’ve heard so much about this online – so yes, I was elated to see it here!
Benton (deluxe sample) & (full-sized)
Another brand that I keep seeing pop up on my feed and I actually got two products for this brand – their Honest Cleansing Foam (cleansers are always in demand in my house) and the Snail Bee High Mask Pack.
Holika Holika (full-sized)
I’m more familiar with their makeup line than skincare collection, so hello Aloe 99% Soothing Gel, nice meeting you. I guess this will keep me company and my skin cool this summer.
Second item from this brand is Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner, which is just perfect! Will test drive this baby right away since I’d love for my eye makeup this summer to stay intact throughout the day.
Skylake (deluxe sample)
First encounter and I’m curious about this Oriental Herb Cool Shampoo. I couldn’t help but smell it right away. The minty kick is quite strong and that is a winner in my books. Did I say I love mint A LOT?
The guide card that came in the box contains short descriptions, usage and pricing information for each product. They’ve also included reminders to patch test before using the products and link to the English translation of the ingredients. We don’t want to start breaking out now, do we?
Oh, they also have a cool sounding blog called Mishipedia where you can learn about expiration dates on Korean beauty products and more.
Overall, I’m impressed about Mishibox first box debut and cannot wait to see what July has in-store for us beauty junkies!
