July 2016 Esian Mall Beauty Box Review
Last month, I had the opportunity to review both the snack box and beauty box from Esian Mall. You can read these reviews here:
I enjoyed both boxes and would recommend either of them. However, because I already have more snacks than I could ever consume, I decided not to continue with the snack box. I stuck with the beauty box, though, and I’m excited to see what Esian Mall’s second beauty box has to offer.
I grabbed this item first because it stuck out to me due to its cute container! The first item I took out of the July 2016 Esian Mall Beauty Box was a TONYMOLY Red Appletox Honey Cream in an 80ml size. Along with the adorable container, the product is a useful moisturizer that combines decadent apple and honey scents.
Estimated value: $10.00 (Source: Amazon.)
The second item in the box was a complete surprise - a necklace from Rich Love Shoppe! Not a typical item to get in a beauty box, but I liked the addition because it’s an item that I think beauty product lovers will also enjoy (as I did.) The necklace features a cute design of a butterfly complemented by the words “Be Brave”. I appreciate that the design is exclusive to Esian Mall; you can’t buy it anywhere else.
Estimated value: $13.00 (Source: Esian Mall / Rich Love Shoppe.)
The third item was a Macaron Lip Balm with a strawberry fragrance from IT’S SKIN. Like the Appletox, the container immediately drew me to this item. It resembles a macaron, and is consequently adorable. Compared to traditional beauty items (especially those from the US), it’s nice to get products with cute containers that will brighten up the appearance of a bathroom counter. And, of course, the product itself is important: this looks like a reliable lip balm that smells strongly of strawberries.
Estimated value: $6.00 (Source: Amazon / Ebay.)
The fourth item was a TONYMOLY Pocket Hair Pack. This is a single-use product that contains a leave-in treatment to put in hair with the purpose of repairing damage from heat, coloring, etc. I’m not the biggest fan of single-use packs, but it’s a good opportunity to try out a new product and decide if you want to incorporate it into your normal beauty routine. I also thought it was cool that the box included a haircare product, when the beauty boxes I’ve seen normally focus on skincare and cosmetics.
Estimated value: $4 (Source: TONYMOLY NY.)
The fifth item was a TONYMOLY Egg Pore Nose Pack. This product resembles the blackhead clearing strips that are readily accessible in the United States, so it doesn’t seem like anything special, but I use those strips regularly so I’m happy to have received this.
Estimated value: $1 (Source: TONYMOLY NY.)
The sixth and final item was a TONYMOLY I'm Real Moisturizing Aloe Face Mask Sheet. Contrary to what I said about the hair pack, it’s good to get face masks in single-use packages to try out a variety of products. They’re also nice to have around for when you feel like pampering yourself.
Estimated value: $3 (source: TONYMOLY NY.)
Overall, the July 2016 Esian Mall Beauty Box contained around $37 worth of products. For a box that costs $25 including shipping, this is a great deal.
Furthermore, I appreciated the variety of products that were included in this month’s Beauty Box. I toploaded the best products in my review, but every product has its own usefulness. I especially enjoyed the two food-shaped containers that will decorate my bathroom counter while delivering the beauty products I need. I also thought it was neat that they included a necklace as a surprise item to make the box more exciting, without drawing too far from their roots.
I greatly enjoyed the July 2016 Esian Mall Beauty Box and I look forward to seeing what comes in the August box.
