W.I.N. Beauty Kit

What is Next, an upcoming start-up that focuses on monthly subscription kits featuring popular Asian beauty and skincare products, is launching their service from to globalize Asian products on a household scale. Asian beauty products are available in the states at a higher cost, and W.I.N. strives to increase the accessibility of products in the market here. There have been major Asian beauty retailers popping up in SoCal, but W.I.N. focuses on offering premium quality products at an affordable cost. 

I was lucky enough to receive one of their exclusive pre-launch beauty kit filled with their favorite products, and upon opening the package, I was impressed at what I received. I got: A'Pieu Deep Clean Foam Cleanser, Missha Natural Soft Jelly Cleansing Puff, Skinfood Chlorella Nose Clear Patch, The Face Shop Character Mask, the Secret Key Snail Repairing Sun Cream SPF 50+/PA+++, and a cute little bag to put everything inside! 

A'Pieu Deep Clean Foam Cleanser- this bubble cleanser is perfect for me as it removes the imperfections and dirt deep in my pores after a long day out. After massaging my face and washing it off, it leads to smooth and clear skin. This product uses Harrogate mineral water as one of its active ingredients which is one of the finest premium spring waters in the world.

I also got the Missha Natural Soft Jelly Cleansing Puff that I paired with my new cleanser. This puff contains activated carbon, natural minerals, and bamboo charcoal to fight bacteria. It also came with a string attached so you can hang it to dry after squeezing out the water. The second time around using my cleanser, I applied it on this puff and massaged it on my face. The texture on the puff felt great, and it removed my dead skin cells with its dense fiber structure. This puff is great for eliminating impurities and provide a thorough cleansing. 

After cleaning my face for the day, I applied the Secret Key Snail Repairing Sun Cream with SPF of 50+. Snail cream is highly popular in Asia as the slime extract is fantastic to fighting premature aging. It also strengthens and evens skin texture and restores the quality of collagen and elastin fibers of the skin. The cream wasn't oily at all, and it felt light on my skin!

Last but not least, I got the Skin Food Chlorella Nose Clear Patch and The Face Shop Character Mask. Skin Food has been opening shops here in SoCal, and I really like the products that they offer as it is healthy for the skin! The nose patch is perfect for removing blackheads and sebum, and it contains chlorophyll which is present in all green plants. The character mask is a super cute animal mask that contains hyaluronic acid and collagen that moisturizes and improves your skin. I have yet to try these two products, but I am excited to!

The beauty kit I received was such a cute surprise to get! I didn't exactly know what was coming, so opening it up was super fun. I really liked the products I received as everything is very economical and useful- I know what I'm using for the next few months! Thank you W.I.N. to sending a box my way!

Remember the monthly jewelry subscription box Rocksbox? Well, there's a subscription box just like that but for sunglasses! Ditto caters to those who want to have a nice variety of designer glasses to wear at a low cost. At $24 a month, customers can pick and choose from brands such as Burberry, Vera Wang, Miu Miu, Lanvin, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and more! Customers can rotate their frames as often as they want, and you can even keep your pair until the new ones come in! For my first time, I got a Burberry pair- it took a few tries before I got shades that were available. The packaging of the glasses was beautiful- the box was extremely sturdy and I love how the shrink wrap it like it's brand new! 

Ditto often has new arrivals and brands coming in, and I can't wait to pick my next pair! It's awesome being able to pick and choose what you want, and get it shipped straight to you. This really is endless eyewear- check out their site to learn more!

Month five using Rocksbox, and it doesn't get old! This time around, I was given a box of really simple and elegant pieces that I loved. My stylist chose a House of Harlow pendant necklace in turquoise to start, and paired it with a gold ring and earrings. 

The Wanderlust + Co ring I ended up buying as I love how the ring looks on my hand! The arrow shape filled with crystals adds a nice touch to any outfit- whether casual or something more on the formal side. 

Last but not least, I got the Kris Nations obtuse triangle stud earrings. These earrings are great for focusing more on the small and delicate details. Since I have a double piercing on my earlobe, I feel like this pair would be better for the top part of the earlobe.

This month's box really emphasized on simple gold tones, so I paired it with a casual spring outfit- a white sports bra like top with a blue floral skirt. Let's see what's coming my way next month!

Also: I was recently offered a collaboration similar to Rocksbox but for sunglasses! Same concept- you can pick a pair of brand name sunglasses you want to wear and trade them in for another pair when you get bored of them! Will be posting soon- stay tuned! :)
