Inside My Birchbox: January 2016 Korean Beauty box

Birchbox On Trend: Korean Beauty (January 2016)
As a Birchbox Ace I get to choose what kind of Birchbox I get each month. This month I chose to get the Korean Beauty box for $10. It arrived a couple of days ago but I finally had time today to get a look at what's inside my Birchbox. Want to see?

First let me say that the exterior box this month has a cute pattern but how the items were packaged this month was not the usual way. Past boxes the small items are usually placed in a pillow pack but this month everything was tossed in with a single sheet of paper. Good thing nothing inside was breakable. Isn't it funny how it's the little things that can irk a person? #FirstWorldBeautyBoxProblems. ;)

Onto the actual items. Of course it goes without saying that everything in the box is from Korea. I haven't tried everything and the only brand I'm familiar with is TonyMoly and I think Goodal via Memebox but the rest are new to me. I don't know when I'll try these samples out though they might make it upstairs to my bathroom tomorrow. We'll see. I'll let you know what I think of each product in better detail down the road.

A word of caution to those with sensitivities or allergies. Before using check the ingredients because Korean beauty products and skincare products contain natural ingredients. I'm posting the ingredients as listed on Birchbox's site so make sure to check before using. I'm allergic primarily to raspberries and am lactose sensitive but it's the raspberries that cause me grief.
