The 3B Box is a subscription box that sends deluxe samples of the most popular Asian beauty products. So it’s basically an Asian Beauty Birchbox! The box costs $12 a month. I was pretty happy with my last box and was excited to get my April one. Let’s see what I got.
Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner & Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel. Benton is a very popular Korean brand so I understand putting some of their products in this bag. I don’t use Benton products due to concerns over past contamination issues. Benton uses very few or no preservatives which is great. However when you think about the long journey these products take from Korea and the elements they are exposed to, the lack of preservatives are a bit concerning. I love natural products but I’m not interested in putting mold on my face. I decided to check out the toner and I did find some teeny black things in it. I’m not sure if that was normal or not (I am no expert and did no testing beyond a visual check). However it made me uncomfortable so I got rid of both products.
I didn’t do a cost breakdown on this but it is certainly worth at least the $12 I paid for it. Although I am disappointed that I will only use 2 out of the 5 products in here I still think this is a really nice bag. The curation is solid and I can’t wait to see what I get next month! If you want to signup for The 3B box you should head over and get on the wait list as it can take months to get off! Right now they only ship to the U.S. but I hope the open up international shipping soon!
