Unboxing & Initial Impressions Sophie’s Winter Survival Kit K-Beauty Box Posted on by cbiancardi
Sophie’s Choice Beauty Box is an amazing press sample set out by a brand new private influenster community created by Sophie at Sophie’s Beauty Box . The owner, Sophie Park, reached out to me back in October and asked if I would be interested in receiving a box with Korean skincare and hair care products. I was very interested and said yes to it, and when I received the box, it totally blew away my expectations!! It was brimming full of quality Korean beauty products with some brands I wasn’t even aware of! I promised you that I would create a blog post of all of the products and where you can purchase them (just click on the links), so here it is. Let’s dive into the unboxing and my initial impressions on each product, which were originally posted on my Instagram account. Skin type/concerns: Oily, aging, blemish prone, pores, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. I received these products complementary to review and was not paid. All reviews are my own honest opinion and I never have been asked to write copy for a brand. This blog post might contain promo codes, affiliate and referral links, which using my links will help generate a small commission that helps support my blog at no extra cost to you.
There were 2 hair care items in here by a new brand to me called Rated Green. The first item is Real Mary Fortifying Scalp Pack with Charcoal , which contains 70% cold brew organic rosemary leaf oil (3500ppm), which stimulates hair follicles and hair growth by enhancing blood circulation to the scalp ~ which will promote healthy, stronger and shiner hair. It also helps with conditioning and soothing your scalp and will clear up dandruff. This also has charcoal to help detox your scalp, unclogging pores and removing excess sebum. There is also tea tree, peppermint, sweet almond, jojoba, sunflower, orange peel, lemon, lavender, basil oils, and ginger, oat kernel and panthenol. This scalp pack doesn’t contain SLS, SLES, parabens and silicon and is great for sensitive scalps too.
This is a nice smooth thick mud green-black scalp pack that smells like rosemary! I love the scent of rosemary ~ do you? After washing my hair, I apply this on my scalp and hair, massage in and leave on for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse off and I don’t even need to use conditioner afterwards, as this leaves my hair soft and conditioned. I have used this several times already and this doesn’t dry out my scalp or hair, leaves a nice rosemary scent and it removes all of my styling care buildup~ which it does build up, even with normal shampoo and conditioner. I really love this one! Where to Purchase: [ Rated Green Korean Site ]
For the Rated Green products, I cannot find them yet globally, so if you want them, you need to use a shipping service. If you are in Korea, you obviously can order directly from the Korean site. I recommend Korean Buddy (click here ) ~ I have used them many times in the past and have always been pleased with their service. All you have to do is send them the links and they will come up with the product total. You pay them, they get the products, weigh it and then give you the shipping costs. If you have never used Korean Buddy before, you can save 50% off the handling fee by using my blog as a referral https://beautyfindsforme.wordpress.com Real Mary Fortifying Scalp Pack with Charcoal Ingredients (translated by me from Rated Green and all mistakes are mine): rosemary leaf water, glycerin, methylpropanediol, cetyl alcohol, isoamyl laurate, stearyl alcohol, purified water, 1,2-hexanediol, behentrimonium chloride, rosemary leaf oil, charcoal powder, menthol, soybean extract, chamomile flower oil, oat kernel protein, coconut oil, tea tree leaf oil, peppermint oil, olive oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, thyme oil, orange peel oil, lemon peel oil, bergamot fruit oil, lavender oil, ginger extract, basil oil, pelargonium graveolens flower oil, sage leaf extract, grapefruit extract, cetyl esters, cetrimonium chloride, ethylhexylglycerin, pentylene glycol, butylene glycol, caprylyl glycol, panthenol, tocopherol, disodium EDTA, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate cosDNA Top : Real Mary Fortifying Scalp Pack Bottom : Real Shea Moisture Recharging Serum
The next item is Real Shea Moisture Recharging Serum , made with organic shea butter ~ this is certified by ECOCERT. I first thought this was a facial serum and even swatched on my hand, stating it felt really lovely and smooth ~ hahaha ~ but it is a serum for your hair! Shea butter has been used for thousands of years to help moisturize skin and hair. Rated Green uses environmentally friendly, high quality organic shea butter that cultivated and distributed through fair trade, and they use a cold press method to extract the butter, so that the vitamins and nutrients are not lost. This also has hydrating hyaluronic acid and hibiscus, full of vitamin C, phosphorous and carotene, and helps prevent hair loss. This serum has a milky gel-like texture, smells soapy to me ~ and I just run it through the ends of my fine, color-treated hair before I blow dry my hair ~ if you have coarse, curly or thick hair, you can use from the roots to the ends ~ for me, I put serums at the ends as that is where I need the most help. My hair is very smooth at the ends and super shiny!! It isn’t weighed down at all and I did try it all over my hair ~ I don’t recommend that for oily fine hair types, as it is a bit too much. However, I have used this as a night hair care treatment all over my hair and it leaves my hair even more shiny and soft! Are you excited about this brand, Rated Green? So far, it looks like they just specialize in hair care products. I wonder if they will branch out to skincare? Where to Purchase: [ Rated Green Korean Site ] Real Shea Moisture Recharging Serum Ingredients (translated by me from Rated Green and all mistakes are mine): purified water, dimethicone, glycerin, propylene glycol, cyclopentasiloxane, aloe vera leaf juice, orange peel oil, soybean extract, shea butter, safflower extract, hibiscus sabdariffa flower extract, rosehip fruit extract, rose extract, sheeps sorrel extract, aminopropyldimethicone, butylene glycol, acrylate/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, aminomethyl propane, petrolatum, polysilicon-11, pectin, pentylene glycol, 1,2-hexanediol, caprylyl glycol, ethylhexylglycerin, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, xanthan gum, alcohol, disodium EDTA, fragrance cosDNA
I received these two lovely centella centric skincare creams ~ first up, is PureForet Centella Multi Cream , which has the most adorable packaging and logo ~ Centella is also called Tiger’s Grass, as it is known that tigers would roll in patches of centella to help heal their wounds.
Centella is an ancient medical herbal remedy and is used for healing, soothing and calming the skin ~ this contains both centella water and extracts. This also hash anti-aging peptides and vitamin E, hydrating glycerin and sodium hyaluronate, healing houttuynia, moisturizing jojoba,macadamia and shea butter, antiseptic and healing tea tree, BHA willow and salicylic acid. This does have a tea tree scent to it, which I do love and its texture is so lightweight and smooth on my skin. It absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling moisturized without being heavy. There is no tacky or sticky residue. Based on its texture, I would say this is more like an emulsion or lotion, and it is great to layer. This is great for oily skinned folks as it doesn’t leave a dewy finish and is one of my absolute favorite items in this box! This comes with a smaller tin so you can decant the larger tin into the smaller one.

The other centella cream is the Georganic Centella Ceramide Moisturizing Balm . Don’t let the name fool you, it isn’t a waxy balm or even a heavy cream. I was scared by the name, but once I opened up this cream, I found it to have a medium weight to it, that absorbs without a tacky residue. This not only has soothing 65% centella, but ceramides, which helps improve your skin’s moisture and elasticity. It also has anti-aging peptides and amino acids, along with moisturizing squalane, shea butter, jojoba and olive oils This has no scent to it and I like using this at night time as it is a bit rich for me during the day time. It does leave my skin supple and very soft! I have not experinecd any blemishes or skin issues with either of these two lovely centella products!

A floral bouquet of products ~ Nacific Real Floral Calendula To ne r (was Natural Pacific): I used this last year ( review here ) and am happy to get it again! It has lovely calendula petals floating in this toner: This is a very light, watery toner and it doesn’t have much of a scent. They reformulated the ingredients just a little bit, with the notable difference of removing beta-glucan and adding centella. Made with 91% calendula water, this ingredient heals chapped, irritated skin and there are some ingredients that are for those who suffer from oily and/or blemish prone skin ~ tea tree, lavender, rosemary, peppermint, lemongrass and chamomile help soothe, repair, heal and provide antiseptic and antibacterial relief to your skin. I think this is more of a gentle AC Control toner, due to its ingredients and while it does provide a bit of hydration, it seems to be tailored more for healing acne and other skin issues. It doesn’t control oil and it does act like an astringent around my pores. I enjoyed the original toner quite a bit, and this one is pretty much the same as last year’s. It keeps my skin refreshed and clean, while providing healing, soothing properties to my skin. Have you tried this toner yet? What did you think of it? Where to Purchase: [ Amazon USA | YesStyle | StyleKorean ] Nacific Real Floral Calendula Toner Ingredients : Calendula Officinalis Flower Water(91%), Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Propanediol, Hydroacetophenone, 1,2-Hexanediol,, Centella Asiatica Extract, Dipropylene Glycol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Anthemis Nobillis Flower Extract, Chrysanthellum Indicum Extract, Allantoin, Calendula Officinalis Flower, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate cosDNA
Blossom Jeju Pink Camellia Soombi Blooming Vitamin Radiance Booster This is my first Blosson Jeju ITEM!! I love everything about it ~ from the white glass bottle with the rose/rose-gold accents, the lovely lightweight essence, the natural floral scent, which is so delicate and pretty. This contains camelia oil ~ rich in vitamin A (retinol), vitamin E and omega fatty acids ~ this oil will also provide moisture deep into your skin, antioxidant green tea, broccoli, niacinamide and algae to help brighten and smooth skin texture, anti-aging beet root ~ rich in vitamin B3. Healing and calming centella and chamomile will soothe your irritated skin and reduce redness. This does have rose and jasmine oils in it, but they are the last two ingredients in a long list, and I did not have any adverse reaction to this essence. My skin feels hydrated and supple, and helps with overall radiance! It does not leave a sticky or greasy residue and dries down to a satin finish. This is just lovely and one of my favorite things this year! Where to Purchase: [ Glow Recipe (1st time purchase?

SkinRX Lab Madecera (Re-Turn) Cream : This is the only product that I dislike in my Sophie’s Box and it is due to the scent ~ a really strong sweet, perfumed floral. If it was more natural and less strongly scented, this would be a favorite, as the cream is actually quite lovely. This formula contains four components extracted from centella asiatica ~ asiaticoside helps form collagen to strengthen your skin and speeds up wound healing. Asiatic acid is an anti-aging compound, that helps to plump up your skin, prevents wrinkles, fine lines and scar tissue. Madecassic acid helps aid in the production of collagen and tissue while madecassoside helps soothe, reduce redness and inflammation and helps heal your skin. Ceramides are lipids (fats) which are important in helping to repair and protect your moisture barrier. Squalane penetrates and absorbs rapidly into your skin and has anti-oxidant properties and there is moisturizing lanolin and olive oil as well in here with brightening niacinamide. This cream fights inflammation, reduces redness while brightening, softening and moisturizing skin. I used this at night, as it was too rich for day time use and I only needed a tiny bit of this product to cover my face. This did leave my skin nice and smooth, not irritated, but my nose was assaulted by the scent. Some people love it, some people hate it. I fell in the latter category Where to Purchase: [ Amazon USA | Soko Glam (1st time purchase?

Finally, what is a K-Beauty Box without sheet masks? Huangjisoo Centella Repairing Sheet Mask ~ I have tried Huangjisoo masks before and I had mixed feelings about them ~ I enjoyed the Broccoli mask but really disliked the Tea Tree one, due to the residue. This is made with centella extracts from Jeju Island, to help strengthen and calm your skin, along with ceramides to nourish and moisture your skin. Good ol’ tremella fuciformis (I swear, I will name my next cat fuciformis ~ say it out loud) which is very hydrating and can attract and bind moisture to your skin. This is made with 99.5% vegetable ingredients, organic with no chemical preservatives, vegan friendly and cruelty free. The mask is made with cupra fabric, which is a superior cotton.
The fit on this mask is a bit thicker than most, full of essence that smells like spicy bergamot which I adore. This is surprisingly cooling on my skin and quite refreshing. Once I removed it, it does leave a slight residue but it isn’t as bad as the tea tree version and I just apply skincare products over it. My skin is much more softer and looks very moisturized. This is a great mask to use right before going outside in the color winter air, as it will protect your skin. If you are VERY lucky and do not live in a cold region, this is a lovely right-before-bed mask, as it will keep your skin smooth, soft and moisturized overnight .

Forencos pH 5.5. Efficacy AC Sheet Mask ~ I do not believe I have tried anything from Forencos before and I have to say, if this mask is representative of their brand, I am very interested in trying more from them! made from tencel. This is a pH 5.5. AC (acne control ~ took me a long time to figure that one out ~ haha) mask ~ its sheet mask material is made from strong, but thin tencel. This contains hollyhock extract, which is a very soothing ingredient along with centella for healing your skin. This also has lots of other healing and oil controlling ingredients with basil, sage, houttuynia, propolis and eggplant. This mask is dripping with a clear watery essence that smells like herbal tea to me. The scent disappears quickly, but that is what I picked up from it. This is very cooling and refreshing on my skin as I wear it and the fit is really nice as well. It is very hydrating so I could keep it on for 40 minutes and after removing, it dries down quickly. My skin is hydrated and feels really refreshed and this mask does not leave a dewy residue, but instead controls my oils.

If you know even one thing about skin care, you’re surely already aware of the importance of moisturizer. After all, it’s one of the most essential aspects of any skin care routine. In fact, as your age advances, moisturizer only becomes more of a necessity. That explains why the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) names applying moisturizer every day as one of their key tips for creating an anti-aging skin care routine . The AAD shares that since moisturizer helps trap water in your skin, the extra moisture can reduce the appearance of fine lines and brighten your complexion. While that may hint at the idea that any moisturizer will do, if you have mature skin, it’s better to use a face lotion or cream that’s formulated to target signs of aging. If you’ve seen the signs and realized it’s time to lay the moisturizer that worked for you in your youth to rest, keep reading. We’re sharing our picks of the best moisturizers for mature skin, from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands, below.
1. Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Moisturizer Moisturizer may not be far from qualifying as an anti-aging miracle, but there’s still a way to take it to the next level—by adding SPF. According to the AAD , dermatologists agree that sunscreen and moisturizer are the two most effective anti-aging products you can get your hands on. It’s up to you whether you’d rather layer sunscreen over your mature skin moisturizer, or opt for a product that offers hydration and sun protection all at once. If the latter catches your interest, you—and your complexion—may be a match for the Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Moisturizer . In addition to providing broad spectrum SPF 30, the moisturizer also helps correct the look of dark spots, which those with mature skin are likely all too familiar with.
2. Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Skin care products are never about just a single ingredient, what matters is the formula as a whole. Despite that, sometimes we can’t help but have an ingredient spark our interest in a particular product, and that’s the case with Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica . When you hear the name “regeneration flower”, it undeniably sounds promising in terms of anti-aging. Since Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica is formulated with a rare regeneration flower (among other important ingredients), it’s a promising anti-aging pick. Our instincts about the moisturizer prove accurate, seeing as the rehydrating reactivation cream helps skin to recover from dehydration, which can be responsible for everything from loss of firmness to lines and wrinkles.
3. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer Catch sight of yourself in the mirror and you might notice you don’t look quite the same as you used to. Beyond wrinkles and volume loss, the change you see could be that your skin has taken on a different tone. That isn’t to say you’ve gone from fair to deep or vice versa, but that you may be missing the natural pink tone that’s indicative of youthful skin. Simply take a look in your family photo album and you’ll see, as a child your cheeks were marked with a rosy flush. Thankfully, that flush doesn’t have to be gone forever. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer is enhanced with rosy pigments to instantly revive skin’s rosy tone , leaving skin looking healthier and visibly younger overtime.
4. Garnier SkinActive Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Serum + Moisturizer If you’re an anti-aging skin care beginner, we have good news for you. There’s no need to worry that you’ll have to fill your regimen with a seemingly endless number of products. You can play it smart when changing up your skin care routine and select products that serve more than one purpose. The Garnier SkinActive Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Serum + Moisturizer is a prime example, since it’s more than just a moisturizer—it’s a serum too. The multi-tasking, time-saving product features a swirl of fast-absorbing serum and moisturizer that effectively reduce signs of aging. Formulated with vitamin E and Pro-Retinol, it intensely hydrates while fighting wrinkles and improving elasticity for a younger look.
5. Biotherm Blue Therapy Night You may roll your eyes every time someone says to get beauty rest, but it’s nothing to turn your nose up at. The AAD confirms that beauty sleep is real, as it gives your body time to refresh and renew itself. To make the most of this time, make sure you’re using an anti-aging moisturizer at night too. To get more specific, use an anti-aging night cream. The Biotherm Blue Therapy Night is meant to be used before bed, as skin is better able to recover when it’s exposed to fewer external aggressors. When you’re just about ready to slip between the sheets, smooth it over your skin to act on lack of firmness and visibly improve your skin’s texture . Then, you can wake up to beautiful-looking skin, morning after morning.
6. Biotherm Blue Therapy Accelerated Cream Treat your skin to a burst of cooling comfort with Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Accelerated Cream. This gel-based anti-aging cream refreshes your skin upon initial contact while also working to give your skin a more youthful-looking glow over time. This formula is hydrating, revitalizing, and firming, so it truly fits the bill for an ideal anti-aging cream.
Biotherm Blue Therapy Accelerated Cream , $72 MSRP
7. CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream Start your morning on the right foot with an effective day cream that can help protect skin against sun damage while improving the appearance of signs of aging—think: fine lines, wrinkles, rough texture, and radiance—at the same time. CeraVe’s Skin Renewing Day Cream is formulated with broad-spectrum SPF, encapsulated retinol, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. It packs a serious anti-aging punch without irritating the skin or causing unwanted dryness.
CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream, $12.69 MSRP
8. Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Night Cream Want to wake up to a visibly revitalized complexion? Opt for a potent night cream such as Lancôme’s Absolue Previous Cells Night Cream. This visibly repairing and recovering night moisturizer will leave your complexion with a youthful-looking glow night after night.
Lancôme Absolue Previous Cells Night Cream , $192 MSRP
9. Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream For an anti-aging facial cream that helps visibly reduce wrinkles and fine lines, look to Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream. The formula—with beech tree extract, and jasmonic and hyaluronic acids—visibly lifts, firms, and retexturizes skin.
Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream , $64 MSRP
10. La Roche-Posay Active C10 Vitamin C Wrinkle Cream With 10% vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, this wrinkle cream can help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while also targeting the signs of dullness and uneven skin tone.
La Roche-Posay Active C10 Vitamin C Wrinkle Cream , $52.99 MSRP
11. L’Oréal Paris Anti-Wrinkle Firming Day Cream SPF 25 This anti-wrinkle and firming cream protects your skin from sun damage thanks to the inclusion of broad-spectrum SPF 25. It’s also fortified with Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex, and can help increase skin cell turnover and deliver smoother, firmer skin in just four weeks.
