|A postcard with instructions for the products|
There were five items that came in this box (the EH had 2 samples). They were in a purple organza bag, which I really liked. I’m the opposite of a hoarder; it makes me nervous having too much of one thing. If I saw another makeup bag, I’d start to twitch. The hand-written note was a very sweet touch – it definitely made the boxes seem curated for my individual tastes, and as a consumer, closer to a brand.

|Etude House Moistfull Collagen Kit|
“This kit supplies much needed collagen and hydration to your complexion as we head into colder months
Freshner [sic] – Dispense toner onto cotton pad and gently wipe face after cleansing
Emulsion – Apply to skin and gently pat until absorbed. Follow with your favorite serum or cream as necessary”
I received two products – a facial freshener (toner) and an emulsion. They come in little orange bottles pictured above. I hate them with the passion of a thousand burning suns. It is ridiculously hard to get the product out of them.
The toner was really moisturizing – it has a pleasant scent that fades fast, and my skin felt plump afterwards. It has a very thin, gel-like consistency. It is more moisturizing than the Etude House Wonder Pore toner, that’s for sure.
I’ve seen this product around, and I noticed that it was listed on the 3BBox website as a possible option, so I’m happy I got to try it. I do think it’s important to note that a 4 piece set sells on roseroseshop for $3.04 and is currently on sale for $2.13. Getting two pieces doesn’t seem like a steal.
|The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Wipes|
“A soft cleansing tissue that contains rosemary extracts along with other healing herbs. This product breaks down your facial makeup and gently cleans your skin without the harshness of most cleansing wipes. Use during your nighttime skincare routine or during the day for a quick facial refresher”
I don’t know how I ever made it through life without these. These smell awesome, feel awesome, and are resealable. This is the portable pack, so I’ll probably throw these into my school bag. Living in Florida makes you sweat like crazy, and if you’re not sweating glitter, it’s not fabulous.
I found them for $4.65 on Korea Depart.
|K-Palette 1 Day Magic Liquid Eyeliner|
“With an easy-to-use brush, this full-size liquid liner is waterproof, quick to dry, and easy to remove with your favorite makeup remover. We love using this liner to create the perfect cat eye look.”
I am an eyeliner fanatic. I’m constantly searching for a new one to throw in my bag or keep as a holy grail. I was a little surprised when I saw the general shape of it, because it reminded me a lot of Dolly Wink’s eyeliner. My hunch was correct – it is practically identical in terms of shape and style. In order to find out which one I liked most, I tested out all three – my Dolly Wink liner, The K-Palette liner, and a Western brand – Benefit They’re Real! Liner (which was tucked away into the back of my make-up drawer because I could never get the hang of it)

I really like this product, and I think this made the entire box for me. It was definitely something I hadn’t heard about, and I was delighted to have tried it.
I found it on Amazon for $19.94.
|Nature Republic Nail Polish in #10|
“This iconic red-orange nail polish will look fabulous on your fingers and toes this winter. Its vivid color, gorgeous shine, and staying power will quickly make this a staple in your beauty bag.”
I love this nail polish. The color isn’t true in this picture – it just barely isn’t orange, but it’s fantastic. I have it on my hands right now actually. Perfect for Christmas time or for summer.

– Etude House Moistfull Collagen Set (2 Pieces)
To be honest, I actually dislike subscription boxes. I feel like they’re really hit-or-miss sometimes, and I always talk myself out of getting them, since I could just order what I’m interested in. This box really was a delight to get. The value came mostly from the eyeliner and the wipes, as those are two items I can see myself stocking up on in the future. I don’t think I’ve ever run out of a bottle of nail polish, but I was lacking this color in my collection, so it’ll be nice to have. As for the Etude House set, as much as I want to like it, the bottles just dissuade me. After testing it that first time, I can’t bring myself to try it again, since I know how much of a hassle it’ll be to get the product out of the bottle.
I liked this box, so I’ll stay subscribed. I hope they give subscribers an option in the future to review their items and share their thoughts. It’s cheaper than Memebox and allows for the exploration of new products, so I’m excited to see what more 3BBox has in store.
