I want to tell you about a couple of “subscription” services that I am really excited for. I put subscription in quotations because it is more like Memebox where you purchase the boxes you want rather than receiving a single box every month. Both of these services are run by a fellow blogger and Youtuber named Eugenie who goes by Genie for short. The boxes/pouches ship out of Hong Kong and all products included are tested by Genie herself to ensure quality. She really seems to care a lot about what she includes in her boxes which I love because you know you will be getting products that are worth your money.
MaskGenie is a service that I am so excited about! As of right now, this is a service that you need to “purchase” each month, so it is not a recurring subscription at the moment. Every month, you will receive different types of face masks that Genie has tested out and thinks are of good enough quality for you to try! There are two options for purchase: 5 masks for $12, or 10 masks for $22. Both of these prices include the shipping from Hong Kong so that is pretty good.
I am absolutely obsessed with masks, they are my favourite skincare product so I jumped on the chance to try this mask pouch. You can place an order for the January pouch until January 11 and it will ship on January 19. The first/second month are a little bit off in timing so the ordering for the February pouch begins January 12 and it will ship February 2. After that, each month will ship on the first Monday of that particular month.
If you are interested in learning more about this service, you can find the MaskGenie Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MaskGenie or you can watch Genie’s video that will tell you about Mask Genie here: MaskGenie Video.
If you would like to try out this service, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your paypal email address and they will send you an invoice! I will be sure to blog my unboxing once I receive this pouch so keep an eye out for that!
Genie’s other service, which was actually the first “subscription” service she created is called ABCDEat (Asian Box Can Do Eat). This is also a mystery box kind of service but rather than providing sheet masks, they provide an assortment of Asian snacks that match the theme of the box that you have purchased. Once again, this is not a recurring monthly subscription, instead you purchase only the boxes that you are interested in. At any given point, it seems like there are a variety of boxes to choose from.
There are three different types of boxes that you can purchase: monthly boxes, special boxes and the pouch. First of all, we have the monthly box which is $21.99 USD including shipping and will ship out on the third Monday of each month. At the moment, the monthly box available for purchase is the February box. These boxes seem to be a mix of sweet and savoury snacks and include quite a few products.
The special boxes are boxes that have a specific theme and they also sell for $21.99 USD including shipping. The special boxes available for purchase at the moment are:Taste of Thai (ships January 26), Taste of Korea(ships January 27), Taste of Taiwan (ships January 28), Noodle Box (ships January 12), and the Chinese New Year Box (ships January 21). I decided to try the Taste of Taiwan box because it was the description that appealed the most to me, and hopefully it won’t be all seafood products (eek!).
Finally are the pouches. These are called the Happy Friday Pouch (at least at the moment) and they are only $8.99 USD including shipping. The pouches include about 4 products for you to try at an low price which is exciting! I decided to try this one too because it was inexpensive and I figured why not. This service has its own website so rather than emailing your paypal address, you can purchase through the website.
If you would like to learn more about ABCDEat, you can view their facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/ABCDEat, you can find their website here http://www.abcdeatbox.com/, or you can watch Genie’s video about the service here: ABCDEat Video.
Genie seems like a wonderful person and I am so happy to be able to try out her services and support her business. I hope that I enjoy these as much as I think I will! If you would like to view Genie’s blog, you can find it at http://geniesfavproducts.blogspot.ca/.
Thanks so much for reading! I will report back once I have received my box/pouches!
