MaskGenie February Pouch

MaskGenie Logo

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.


Skinfood Black Bean Nose Pack ($1)

I am assuming that this is a nose pack similar to the Bioré strips that you can use to remove blackheads. I may be wrong but that’s what I am assuming. MaskGenie pouches don’t come with an informational card so I am using what I can find online and Genie’s unboxing video to describe these masks. These strips are always nice to have and I do enjoy Skinfood products!


Jant Blanc Coenzyme Q10 Plentiful Essential Skin Mask ($1)

According to Genie, this mask is quite hard to get ahold of so hopefully that is because they are good and everyone wants to use them. The packaging states that this will help with aging and will firm the skin, restoring elasticity. I love the packaging of this, I think it is so cute, even though that has nothing to do with how the product itself performs. I look forward to trying it!


Etude House Collagen Eye Patch ($1.40)

This is a product that Genie herself hasn’t tried but Etude House is a well known brand and eye patches seem to be very in at the moment. They are usually to help restore moisture under the eyes, to decrease puffiness, and to sometimes reduce dark circles. My dark circles are hereditary so things like this don’t work for the purpose but it is always nice to be able to keep the dry skin away from around my eyes.


My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask ($1.40)

I have heard many things about My Beauty Diary masks but have never actually tried one myself. This Black Pearl mask is for whitening and nourishing and according to Genie, it is very moisturizing. Whitening products in Korea usually mean that they are brightening which is great during the winter because I find my complexion to be quite dull. This mask feels pretty thick through the packaging so I look forward to seeing how it performs!


Foodaholic 3D Snail Natural Essence Mask ($1.50)

I have purchased a couple of Foodaholic 3D masks before but I don’t think I have the snail, and I actually haven’t tried the ones I purchased yet. Apparently, because of the 3D aspect, these masks have a very nice face shape so they fit well while you are wearing them. However, they do not seem to have a lot of essence to them so don’t be surprised when you open it up and the mask isn’t completely soaked in it like some masks are. I will be trying this one out soon!


Gung Solution Doctor’s Aquafill Mask Pack ($1.50)

This mask is made my the SecretKey brand which is on par with a drug store brand in Korea. There were a couple different variations of this mask sent out in this months pouch. This one is focused on moisturizing but there were also masks focusing on lifting and brightening. This uses hyaluronic acid and ceramide to calm and soothe the face while moisturizing. I’m happy that I got the moisturizing one since the air here is so dry!


Deary Edelweiss Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Invisible Elastic Mask ($2.20)

That is quite the name for this mask. This is another one that had several variations including this Edelweiss one, a rose type, a chamomile, and a pomegranate. According to Genie, these are masks from Taiwan and they are really nice to use! She seemed quite excited to send these out in the pouches for people to try. This sounds like another nice one for moisturizing which I am happy about!


Tuningface Essence Mask Sheet Amazing Brightening ($1)

This one came in this pink brightening type, a blue moisturizing type, and a yellow one that Genie thinks was for firming. As much as I enjoy moisturizing masks, it is nice to have some variety so I’m happy I got the brightening one. She hasn’t tried these masks yet but thought the girls on the packaging were super cute so wanted to try them. I agree about the girls, the one on this mask is pretty. Once again, I know this has nothing to do with the product itself but nice packaging is appealing. Hopefully this will be a nice one!


Adin Herb Essence Mask ($1.50)

This mask apparently uses rosemary, lavender, ginseng, lavender, vitamin E, collagen, and hyaluronic acid to help moisturize, relax, and soothe the skin. It claims to be especially useful when skin is extra dull, dry, and in need of nutrition. I haven’t heard of this brand before but it sounds like there are some nice ingredients in the mask so I am sure it will be nice to try. One interesting thing to note is that it gives you suggestions of use based on the season. In the summer, they recommend you keep the package in the refrigerator, which I assume is to create a cooling effect. In the winter, they suggest you soak the package in warm water for 2-3 minutes before use which I have never seen before. Very interesting!


Mediheal E.G.T Midnight Capping Pack ($1.50)

This is from the same brand that makes the bubbling face mask we received in the January pouch. I really liked that bubbling mask so I am sure I will really like this too. This mask is a sleeping pack and I am happy that it comes in a resealable package since it comes in a foil pouch. Genie also sent out a H.D.P Shower Capping Pack which rather than being a sleeping pack, is a wash off type of mask. This mask looks like it has the Dreams Bounce Cheese Cream kind of texture so it will be interesting to use .Apparently even with generous use, you can get a week or more out of this pack which is quite nice!

I am happy with my February pouch! At the moment, this is definitely one of my favourite monthly subscriptions. I love masks so much and it is neat that I can try all these different masks that I probably wouldn’t have ever even heard about otherwise. The approximate retail value of this months pouch is about $14. This is a little bit low but the purchase cost includes shipping from Hong Kong and the value is in the usefulness of the products so I’m still happy.

If you are interested in learning more about this service, you can find the MaskGenie Facebook page at or you can watch Genie’s video that will tell you about Mask Genie here: MaskGenie Video.

Memebox Collaboration #9 Soothing Sista

Soothing Sista

Soothing Sista knows how to rock a look. Most often found on the streets of San Francisco, she is taking the YouTube world by storm with her skincare, makeup, and fashion tutorials. Showcasing looks for the edgier goddess in you, Soothing Sista, isn’t afraid to take a risk. She’s hand-picked hottest skincare and makeup products of the month straight from Korea, which we’re sure you’ll love!

If you have not heard of Memebox, it is a Korean beauty box that contains a variety of skin care, makeup, and other beauty products. There are several types of boxes, including: memeboxes, superboxes, nakedboxes, and boxes that are set around a particular theme. The prices vary depending on the type of box that you get and can range from $15-$80 I believe. Most of the regular boxes are $23 and then you also have to pay $6.99 shipping for each box. You have to keep an eye on the shipping dates for each box because it can be months away, that way you aren’t frustrated wondering why the shipping takes so long. Please be aware that Memebox will no longer be shipping internationally. They will only ship to addresses in China, Korea, and the USA as of February 10 2015.


I picked this box up in a restock and I was glad it came up because it was on my wish list. When this box was originally released, I knew what was inside it and I considered purchasing it but that was before I was really on the Memebox bandwagon. Afterwards though, I was reading blog posts about it and regretted not buying it! I was happy to be able to get my hands on it.




Vicioni Super Aqua Soothing Serum 30ml ($29)

No carbomer, no silicon, no artificial ingredients, and no chemical preservatives whatsoever. It’s true that Vicioni Super Aqua Soothing Serum may smell less than pleasant and not as quick to absorb as that of other brands. However, this is because Vicioni takes great care in selecting only skin beneficial, non-chemical ingredients for its 100% natural formula. It contains high concentrates of ‘caulerpa racemosa’ (also known as ‘sea grape and rich in sea minerals, vitamins, and nutrients), rice bran, hyaluronic acid, mushroom ferments, aloe vera, etc. The ocean will deeply replenish, brighten up, and smoothen dry, dulled complexion. 

This sounds wonderful! I don’t have a serum on the go at the moment so I will definitely be putting this to good use. I am a little concerned about the fact that they say it smells less than pleasant considering it will be all over my face. I haven’t used it yet so I’m not sure how it actually smells but we will find out soon enough. Not related to how the product works, I love the packaging of this serum. I think it’s absolutely beautiful! I look forward to trying this out.


Tonymoly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm 30g ($11)

A self-heating steam balm that opens up clogged pores by warming the skin with its blend of sulfur hot spring water and heating agent the more you massage it onto face. Then 3 kinds of scrubs – white salt, charcoal powders, and egg yolk – work to thoroughly remove all blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin cells piled up inside enlarged pores. Rich in calcium, various minerals, acetic acid, amino acid, and vitamins, it also delivers deep nourishment, control excess sebum, and prevent skin dehydration.

How to Use: Apply the steam balm over nose area. (Make sure to towel-dry after cleansing) Gently massage for 3-5 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water when the translucent oil balm turns opaque. Recommended to be used once or twice a week.

I am definitely drawn to this because I love clearing out my pores. I’m aware that this is a super weird thing to say but I said it so it’s out there now. I’m not quite sure how this works, it is more like a cream or like a grommage kind of peeling action but I am excited to try it out! I have such a hard time deciding every day which types of masks to use and this will just be added to the pile of indecision.


Shara Shara Mineral Capsule Cream 50ml ($18)

This Miracle Capsule Cream is an anti-wrinkle moisturizer enriched with glacier water and nourishing capsules containing 24 kinds of oil complex. Deliver instant moisture surge and supple firmness to dry, tired face as if letting the skin take a rejuvenating winter sleep! It will take care of dry patches and protect from external damages by locking in moisture within skin.

I haven’t opened this because I still have creams on the go so I don’t want to expose this to the air just yet. For whatever reason, the inclusion of glacial water just makes it sound so nice and refreshing. My skin is kind of normal to dry so this will be really nice! I have tried the Shara Shara balm and really like it so I’m sure I will like this too!


Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Primer Essence 20ml ($11)

Quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines and help makeup adhere better for a long-lasting finish. The silky, lightweight formula can be worn under makeup to fill in uneven skin texture and visible pores, creating a smoother-than-smooth canvas and mattifying excessive oil and shine. Its gently formula consists of both sebum control powder and moisturizing essence component, thus is works to control excess sebum while maintaining a healthy moisture balance at the same time.

I have yet to find my holy grail primer and I am hoping that this might be it! My problem is that I have large pores and so foundations and BB creams settle right into my pores and it just looks awful. Other people may not notice it unless they are right up close but it is on my mind! I would love to have this actually settle into my pores so my makeup can sit smoothly on top. Maybe this is just wishful thinking but we will see how it measures up!


Dewytree Deep Detox Black Mask 1ea ($3)

A facial mask that clarifies skin pores and rejuvenates dull skin with volcanic scoria clay from Jeju Island containing rare minerals. It’s also formulated with charcoal powder, papaya extracts, grapefruit extracts, walnut shell powder, and centella asiatica extracts to detoxify and revitalize the skin.

How to Use: Wash your face and remove makeup and any environmental toxins. Gently unfold mask and place on your face, adjust the eyes, nose and mouth opening. Relax for 15-20 minutes with the mask in place. No need to rinse, massage remaining product into your face.

Ever since I have been involved with Memebox, I have been intrigued by these black masks. They have such nice sounding ingredients in them and people seem to really enjoy using them. I haven’t tried this yet but I do know they look absolutely horrific when they are on your face since the sheet mask itself is black. I find it pretty funny but if you are walking around your house with it on, you may scare your family.


Vivito Painting Matte Finish Lip Stick 1ea ($30)

A 3-effect matte lipstick that smoothly glides on with a creamy texture, steins lips with a highly pigmented, radiant colour in just a single swipe, and leaves lips velvety soft and super matte without being dry and flaky.

I am obsessed with this lipstick. There were 5 possible options: RD01 Sour Red, RD02 Red Sun, RD03 Red Ribbon, PP01 Raspberry Purple, PP02 Orchid Purple. I was kind of hoping for the Raspberry Purple but I got Red Sun. I was a little disappointed at first but after wearing this, I love it! This is a pink toned red and it wears so nicely! It definitely does not feel drying and the colour looks beautiful. I have already been looking online to see if I can get other colours at a decent price. If you know of anywhere, let me know in the comments!


Revecen Blooming Collagentox Sleeping Water Pack 90ml ($18)

A nourishing sleeping facial pack formulated with snail mucus extracts, bird nest extracts, aloe vera leaf extracts, orange zests, Japanese prickly ash berries, pasque flower extracts, usnea extracts, and cypress water. Yellow vitamin capsules will absorb deep into skin to replenish, firm up and balance out uneven skin tone.

I have quite the collection of sleeping packs. At the rate I actually use them, I may never go through all of the ones that I have stashed away. The packaging of this sleeping pack is quite nice, I definitely wouldn’t mind having it sitting on my vanity. There are so many really interesting ingredients in this one, namely bird nest extracts. What does that even mean? Very interesting indeed. I look forward to trying this one!

I am so happy that I was able to get my hands on this box! It sold out really quickly during the restock and some people were refunded for theirs so I am glad that I was one of the lucky ones who got it. I paid $21 for this box plus $6.99 for shipping and the retail value for the products is $120. This is definitely one of the best boxes that I have purchased!!

Sorry I don’t have any coupon codes for you but if you would like to check out their website and make a purchase (until February 10 for everybody or anytime for China, Korea, and US residents), than you can do so at

TesterKorea Haul

TK Haul 1

I would like to start off my saying that I apologize in advance for the qualities of pictures in this post. I just don’t have a great space for pictures taking up large spaces so I had to make do. This means they may be a little blurry, a little shiny, let’s just pretend it’s artistic or something.

Now that the apology is out of the way, I can say how excited I am about this order! It took a little while for the order to be fulfilled. I ordered it on January 1 and it was shipped on the 15. However, I received it on January 20 because I shipped EMS which means it was express!

TesterKorea has a kind of permanent sale for members meaning that for their brand sale, all members get 30% off of everything. There was also a little bit of a deal with shipping so I took advantage of that. It ended up being somewhere between $50 and $60 for 86 masks so that is a great deal! It makes each mask less than a dollar which is nowhere near the price we have to pay in stores around here. Alrighty, let’s take a look at what I decided to pick up!

Nature Republic Eyeliner

TesterKorea is pretty known for the samples that they give out with their orders. I was pretty excited to see what I would get, especially because my order was so large. Some people had said lately that because of a sale they had, they had just been giving people like 20 samples of the same product so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

I didn’t actually get any samples with my order but did get a full size Nature Republic Fly to the Moon Liquid Eyeliner in Black. I haven’t swatched it yet because I have a couple liquid eyeliners on the go at the moment. I am pretty happy with this! Anything that is given for free is a bonus so I definitely couldn’t be disappointed!

I am really happy with my order! I know it took a long time to get the order shipped but it was still around the holidays and during a sale so that is okay. I know there was a lot to read above but I wanted you guys to know what each mask was for in case you were interested in them! I am so excited to try all of these out since I am so obsessed with sheet masks in general! If you have tried any of these masks, let me know what you thought of them! Thanks for reading 🙂
