Yes Style Beauty Sampling Box unboxing, review, photos: International beauty boxI had a bonanza of beauty boxes coming in on Tuesday, as you must have seen on my Facebook page - something to keep me happy while on the dentist's chair. And here is the third. This is the Yes Style Beauty Sampling Box and it ships worldwide. I paid $23.65 (it's listed as $24.90 now) and shipping is free for all orders above $25, so you might want to add a sheet mask or something to your order, as I did. Shipping is tracked.
YesStyle.com is a Korean cosmetics and accessories website, with worldwide shipping (from Singapore, according to my postmark). This is not a regular subscription, but a one-off sampling box. Each box will contain a total of 10 products, including items in a set. They have a "Korean beauty mix" in the boxes. You can order one, but there is no guarantee that a second sampling box will contain different products.

Here is my unboxing and review of the Yes Style Beauty Box.

HOW cute is this box? I must say this is the most appropriate design I've come across for a beauty box. Too bad it is only a one-off.

It came in bubblewrap. There was a vial of perfume as an extra - Salvatore Ferragamo's Incanto Bloom.

Contents of the Yes Style Beauty Box

Yes Style Beauty Sampling Box unboxing, review, photos: International beauty boxI received:
  1. Laneige Basic Step Trial Kit
  2. Etude House Dress Room Sweet Look Body Wash
  3. Skin Food GoldKiwi Hydrating Mask
  4. Missha Time Revolution White Cure Dark Control Cream
  5. Etude House Lemon Sheet Mask
  6. Dr Pharm Pomegranate Sheet Mask
  7. And another box from Skin Food, which I will reveal below - it is a bit of a shocker.
Let's have a quick look at each one.

Laneige Basic Step Trial Kit

This box contains four products - Power Essential Skin Refiner, Moisture Balancing Emulsion, Water Bank Moisture Cream and Water Bank Essence. A decent hydrating kit, something that my skin badly needs. I'll let you know how I get along with this.

Etude House Dress Room Sweet Look Body Wash

Oh my. Despite this tube being sealed, I can smell the fruity fragrance even outside the box. This is going straight to my shower. I can tell I'm going to love using this, though I cannot make sense of the name.

Skin Food GoldKiwi Hydrating Mask

I have read very positive reviews of the GoldKiwi Face Mask and can't wait to give it a whirl. There's enough for at least two uses.

Eeek - what is this obsession with becoming lighter-skinned? You wouldn't want to grow an extra arm as well, would you? Or get your pets and plants to become lighter-skinned? I wish humans would accept their colour the way they accept animals and plants. Since I - how do they say it - "run screaming for the hills" when confronted with skin lightening or whitening products, I will be chucking this out. 

Sheet masks from Etude House and Dr Pharm

These feel heavy and packed with serum. I like sheet masks and will be using these once my face looks human (post-tooth extraction).

Blimey, did I just receive 25 cotton pads in a beauty box?!?!?!? What next, Q-tips? Or Band-aids? Toilet paper? It takes away from what is otherwise a very good box. I wish to goodness that they had included even a wet wipe instead of this. The only good thing is, as I am having my tooth out - by the time you read this, it would be out - I need cotton pads for some makeshift cleansing and to wipe off stuff. Still, not in a beauty box, please!
Bottom Line
The brands in here are all quite famous and there are no sachets! I loved everything in this box except for the whitening cream and the cotton pads, the last of which detracts a really decent beauty box. I just went over to the Yes Style website and some box pictures contain the cotton pads, so I should have looked closer - I have only myself to blame. I wish they'd included another sheet mask and maybe a hand cream instead of those two.
