EOpenMarket is an online Korean retailer and they offer Secret mystery boxes. Which just so happens to be two of my favorite things. I originally saw these on Beejuboxes and immediately went and ordered. (Can you say no self-control? My poor wallet.)
Anyway, there are four different options when you order.
I ordered 3 different boxes– one each of Whitening Care, Anti-aging Care and Moisture and Pore & Blackhead Care & Cleaning. This is where it gets a little tricky. There is no product card or list to tell me what belongs with what box. That means, it’s all up to my own interpretation as to what was in what secret box. The only one I know for sure which box it would have been in is the eggs (which I will speak on shortly).
Pore & Blackhead Care & Cleaning:
Tonymoly Blackhead Steam Balm
This egg removes dead skin and sebum. It’s applied to the nose for 2-5 minutes and is massaged in. It is self-heating and contains salt, egg and charcoal.
Tonymoly Tightening Cooling Pack
This egg helps to tighten up pores. It contains bentonite and kaolin from clay to help get rid of sebum and dirt in pores.
Tonymoly Silky Smooth Balm
This is a primer designed to help hide large pores, fine wrinkles and scars. This contains egg white and camellia extract.
And from here I can really only speculate.
Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Eye Cream
This is an eye cream that contains adenosine to help with fine lines and wrinkles. The plant extracts help to protect against dryness. Niacin helps to brighten the eye area. It is also mineral oil, color, benzophenone, phenoxyethanol, paraben free. While this seems like a small container(15g), a little goes a LONG way. I’ve been using this off and on for months and I’ve hardly made a dent in this container.
Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule
This might actually be the first (and only) ampoule that I own. This is to be applied at night time to encourage moisturization of the skin. It is nutrient rich thanks to plant extracts (grapes, tomatoes, and green tea) and helps to repair fine lines and wrinkles. It contains arbutin and adenosine.
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream
This is one of those “holy grail” products that I’ve seen on many other blogs. It’s a lightweight snail gel cream containing 74% snail secretion filtrate. It’s supposed to help your skin recover. I’ve only just started using it. (I hope to do a full review later.)
Secret Key Snail+EGF Prestige Booster
I’ll admit that I had to do a fair bit of research to figure out what a booster is. From what I understand, it’s like a combo product to be used after cleansing. It’s like a toner, emulsion, and essence all in one. This is for brightening and wrinkle relief. It contains snail mucus, EGF, birch tree extract, niacinmide, and bifida lysate as the main ingredients. It’s good for sensitive skin and for those who need less harsh products.
Tonymoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch
Nothing super fancy here! It’s an under eye patch. I enjoy the pandas. I didn’t notice any crazy effect from this product, but it was relaxing to use.
Foodaholic Collagen Mask
I didn’t actually use this mask. I passed it on. But, I’ve used foodaholic masks in the past. I think they’re a good bargain and the ones I’ve tried have been nice.
Holika Holika Pig Nose 3-Step
I enjoy these three step nose things. While I know that it’s not really attacking blackheads, it is removing sebaceous filaments in my nose. I like the process of all of these steps. It’s oddly relaxing.
Oodles of samples! (Value: 2$)
I was pleasantly surprised by these boxes. They turned up a little worse for wear, but the products inside were cool. While I wish I hadn’t received a bunch of anti-wrinkle stuff, it is good anti-wrinkle stuff. I paid 60$ USD and received a value of a little over 75$ USD.
Have you tried these? What did you think? Did you think it’s worth it?
