January 2019 Raxy Beauty Box

My second beauty post of 2019 is another Raxy post!  January’s theme is うるぷる恋コスメ (uru puru koi cosume), enchanting cosmetics that overflow with moisture and plump the skin. Onto the January 2019 Raxy Beauty Box!

Hiroko.K Organic Powder Perfume in Sunrise Dew Matsu


Hiroko.K is a lineup of Ecocert certified organic perfumes and oils. The brand even has a namesake day spa, located in Tokyo’s stylish Omotesando district!

This fine powder has a gentle rosemary scent, and the name, “Sunrise Dew Matsu” suits it perfectly! Rather than use it solely as a perfume, I prefer to use it as an oil blotter for my T-zone. It will be great to use after swim classes and to freshen up once the weather warms up.
Even though it’s a white powder, it appears translucent when it absorb my skin’s oil.  I must mention that the rosemary scented powder paired with my coconut hibiscus hair cream makes me feel like a walking food court — but I’m not complaining!

Medel Natural White Serum

Medel Natural White Serum is a brighten serum that uses ceramide from domestically harvested rice. It also contains chamomile and calendula, two ingredients with  anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties. It fits in well with my current skincare routine of of Skinvill products that brighten the skin and tones down hyperpigmentation.

Haruharu WONDER Honey Green Brilliant Mask

The sole K-beauty product in the January 2019 Raxy Beauty Box, Haruharu WONDER Honey Green Brilliant Mask is free of parabens, chemicals, artificial fragrances and colors.
The main ingredients, green tea, honey, and peach extract, repair and brighten the skin.

The sheet mask is black, due to the made bamboo charcoal powder fibers that absorb the skin’s impurities. I’m not a fan of the smell, which reminds me of the green tea Febreeze that I use, but the essence is very hydrating. 

KA・KE・HI・KI Motive Lip Plumper in 301 SAKURA

The MVP of the January 2019 Raxy Beauty Box is without a doubt this Sakura colored plumping lip gloss by KA・KE・HI・KI. It’s a natural looking coral pink tint with just a hint of shimmer.

It smells faintly of sweets, though I can’t pinpoint exactly what the smell reminds me of. I absolutely love way it looks when paired with the I Heart Revolution lip shade I got in the December Raxy Beauty Box.

The total value of the January 2019 Raxy Beauty Box retails for around 10,000 yen, so I definitely feel the value of these products. What’s more, these are all items that I genuinely like.  If I had a rating system, I’d give every single product in this month’s box 5 out of 5 stars.
In more Raxy beauty news, I’ve been selected to attending an upcoming  Raxy beauty meet up (it’s an event called…”RAXY meet UP”) ! I’m super excited for the opportunity to join a panel of other Raxy beauty box subscribers and to take part on a master makeup class. Plus, there will be free beauty swag!
