April 2016 TofuCrate Sampler Box Review
For the month of April, Monthly Box Hub is hosting a giveaway for a free month of TofuCrate, an Asian beauty subscription box. Because TofuCrate only recently launched, they sent me a sampler box to review to give readers an idea of what they can win.
To be clear, TofuCrate has different tiers you can purchase. I was sent the lowest-cost tier, the Sampler Box, which sells for $10. In comparison, I’m giving away a Mini Crate, which is worth $15 and therefore will contain more products and products of higher value. They also sell Junior Crate and Senior Crate tiers if you’re looking for even more beauty products. Rather than showing the amount of products you can get in a TofuCrate subscription, the purpose of this review is more to show you the types of beauty products the crate might include.
The first item included in the Sampler Box was a full-size facial mask from Etude House. The mask features Korean Ginseng extract to enhance a youthful complexion by revitalizing exhausted and lifeless skin. This full-size mask retails for $3.50.
The second item was a sample-size of a TonyMoly brand Kiss Love Lip Master. This product is called a Lip Master because it includes a tint, gloss, and lipstick all in one product. I applied some of the product in the video and I really liked the color it produced. These sample sizes sell on Ebay for about $2.
The third and final item was a sample-size of Secret Key brand Starting Treatment essence. According to the info card, this product is a dual solution for whitening and wrinkle improvement. I don’t particularly seek products for either of those areas, but I know a lot of people would appreciate those effects (particularly the wrinkle improvement). This trial size bottle sells for around $4.50 on Ebay.
Overall, the TofuCrate Sampler Box contained $10 worth of items at a cost of $10, suggesting the box provides a fair value. More importantly, it delivered a good variety of products. I appreciated that the items included both make-up (the lip master) and skincare aids (the treatment essence and mask.) I also liked that it included a mix of trial size items and full-size items. I believe the larger boxes follow these trends, but with a greater selection and value of products.
