[Edit 1/8/17 Jini Beauty Box has become bi-monthly, meaning you recieve a box every other month. You can basically think of it as getting the amount you would get in two boxes, but every other month. More details below]
[Edit 5/11: All of my Jini Beauty Box reviews can be found here]
New Asian beauty subscription boxes have been launching left and right lately. After the newly-launched Jini Beauty Box was brought to my attention by the gals at BeautyandtheCat, I decided to sign up for the box and be a bit of a guinea pig, if you will. As of the writing of this post, there’s not very much information available on this box (hence the guinea pig-ing), but I wanted to go ahead and sum up what I’ve been able to find out so far in hopes of helping anyone else who’s looking for info on this box. And just to let you know, I’m not affiliated with this company in any way, and I paid for the box with my own money. I’ll be doing a review of the box once it arrives, so stay tuned for that. All of my Jini Beauty Box reviews are available at the link above! I haven’t reviewed any of the bi-monthly boxes yet, but will do so starting with the Jan/Feb 2017 box.
What is it?
A bi-monthly subscription box centered around Korean beauty products, and curated to address the needs of different skin types. Every other month, subscribers receive a box of 6-8 full size and deluxe sample products, 2 sheet masks, and a few free samples. Boxes have typically included 1 or 2 makeup items as well, which I’ve really enjoyed.
Subscribers choose from one of four boxes, each geared toward a different skin type. There are no quizzes to take, you just choose the box you think will suit you the best. You’re also able to change which skin type you’re subscribed to from month to month. So, for example, I chose to subscribe to the Normal/Combination box because my skin is combo most of the year, and even though I have acne, I find most acne products to be too drying for my skin. Let’s say that I get my box and I find that the products aren’t quite cutting it because my skin is throwing a weather-induced tantrum and needs more hydrating products. I could go into my account settings and switch my skin type to Dry/Mature (I’ll show you how to do this later), then the next shipment I would receive a box with products aimed at treating dry/mature skin. I’ve been very happy with the normal/combo box, so I haven’t felt the need to try any of the other skin types, but I love knowing that I have the option.
If you’re concerned about ingredients, Jini Beauty Box also features a list of ingredients for the products in every box, which can be found here.

How much does it cost?
6-month (3 box) pre-pay is $129.95
12-month (6 box) pre-pay is 249.95
Subscriptions automatically renew unless you cancel or skip before the 14th of the billing month. So if you received the Jan/Feb box but wanted to skip the March/April box, you would need to skip before the 14th of March.
