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.

IMG_20150304_122628

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!

IMG_20150304_122655

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!

IMG_20150304_122723

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.

IMG_20150304_122746

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!

IMG_20150304_122807

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!

IMG_20150304_122827

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!

IMG_20150304_122850

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!

IMG_20150304_122910

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!

IMG_20150304_122927

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!

IMG_20150304_122948

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 https://www.facebook.com/MaskGenie or you can watch Genie’s video that will tell you about Mask Genie here: MaskGenie Video.

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!

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 🙂

Memebox Boxing Day Special #4

Boxing Day 4

Last but not least, Memebox presents you with our final Boxing Day Special #4! This lovely box offers 5 full-sized skin care and makeup products from the hottest K-beauty stores (like Skinfood and Tonymoly anyone?) for only $23! Grab yours now, because Boxing Day Special boxes come in limited quantities only and we don’t want you to miss out!

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. Sometimes if boxes are due to ship at the same time, they will have bundles so that there is only one shipping cost.

The promise of brands such as Skinfood and Tonymoly was the reason that I purchased this box. I have liked products from these brands before and was excited to see which new products of theirs I could try. Let’s see what we got.

Boxing Day 4 Box

Skinfood Eyebrow ClosedSkinfood Eyebrow

Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake 4g ($5)

Formulated with cacao extracts, this Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake carries two naturally blending grey, khaki, or brown shades for shaping and defining fine arches with an easy sweep.

01 Grey Khaki Black, 02 Grey Brown

This is not a product that I was excited about to be honest. I received this product in my Skinfood box and wasn’t overly excited about it at the time either. You could have received 01 Grey Khaki Black or 02 Grey Brown and I received 02 Grey Brown which is the exact same colour I got last time. I think I will probably find someone to pass this along to.

Skinfood Tomato Toner

Skinfood Tomato Whitening Toner 180 ml ($17)

A premium Tomato Whitening Toner made from sun-ripe tomato extracts and Vitamin C complex to make skin brighter, clearer, and suppler.

This is another repeat from the Skinfood box that I received. I finished this bottle of toner literally only a couple of days before receiving this box which was kind of funny. I did enjoy this toner. I found it quite refreshing and it actually became my favourite part of my skincare routine. I am working on a lemon peeling toner at the moment but I think that this one is next in line (based on expiry date). Its not so great that this is a repeat but at least it is something I know I like!

Nuganic BB

Nuganic Customize Anti-Wrinkle BB or Customize Pure Snail BB 40 ml ($54)

Nuganic BB Creams work to balance out the skin’s oil & moisture level for a silky smooth finish to your makeup. They offer strong UV protection while effectively covering up skin imperfections and leaving your skin glowing with a natural shine. The Anti-Wrinkle BB is enriched with adenosine, arbutin, ginseng extracts and more, and the Pure Snail BB bases its formula on snail mucin filtrate, aloe vera leaf, lemon, and various herbal ingredients.

There were two options for which kind of BB cream you got and I was really indifferent to which one that I had to be honest. I have not opened this because I have several BB creams open at the moment but I’m sure it will be nice. There is no shade listed so we will see how it matches. I haven’t had too much trouble matching the Korean BB creams so far because I am pretty fair. I am excited to try this!

Skinfood Cleanser

Skinfood Egg White Pore Meringue Foam 200ml ($13)

Abundant, meringue-like fine bubbles penetrate deep into skin without irritating or dehydrating the skin texture. Highly recommended for weak and sensitive oily skin types.

This is the final repeat product in this box, also from the Skinfood box. I am a couple of days from finishing my first bottle of this cleanser and I have enjoyed it so I am not upset to have another one. I have so many cleansers at the moment that I may never run out!

Tonymoly Tint Swatch

Tonymoly Delight Tony Tint 8.3ml ($4)

One of the bestselling lip tints in Korea, this tint instantly gives vivid red colour to your lips with just a single touch. It creates the long-lasting, radiant lips, popular among Korean beauty lovers.

How to Use: Apply small amount to inner center of the lip. Blend it outwards to create gradient lips.

The final product of this box is a Tonymoly lip tint. For some reason I skipped actually taking a picture of the packaging but you can see the swatch above. I received 01 Cheery Pink and the other choices were 02 Red or 03 Orange Cha Cha. I am so unbelievably happy that I didn’t get the orange version of this! When I read that it was Cheery Pink, I was a little afraid it would be a Barbie kind of pink. Fortunately for me, it is a deeper pink that I actually like quite a bit. Once it sets, it doesn’t seem to budge so that is great! As you can see in the picture, the colour may feather out a bit so be careful with it on your lips!

I paid $25 for this box and received products that are valued at $93. I am still waiting on my Boxing Day #5 box but so far this has been my least favourite of the Boxing Day boxes. It’s not that these are bad products, I just would have preferred getting something new that I haven’t tried before. Overall, an alright box.

Memebox Superbox #84 Skinfood

Skinfood

Okay, so this is the box that I was super excited about! This is Superbox #84 Skinfood and I bought it in a bundle with The Face Shop box. Here is the description:

“Didja hear? Skinfood is finally here at Memebox! We are so excited to bring you our first ever Skinfood box. Skinfood is the first ever Korean cosmetics brand to emphasize the importance of “feeding” the skin! Skinfood travels all over the world to find the highest quality ingredients to bring you first class cosmetics and skin care! All cosmetics are infused with a healthy blend of fruits, veggies, and your delicious treats to enhance your natural beauty. This box is brimming with a delicious mix of Skinfood’s skin care and makeup to give you a beauty blast!”

The bundle of these two boxes was $58 and it came with $6.99 shipping that was upgraded to express shipping which was great. It shipped from Seoul on October 29 and it got to me today which is November 5. That is pretty good if you ask me.

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. Sometimes if boxes are due to ship at the same time, they will have bundles so that there is only one shipping cost.

Box Comparison

Here is just a comparison to show the difference in size between the Skinfood box (top) and The Face Shop box (bottom). The products in this box were much larger but that is due to the types of products they were.

Skinfood Box Open

admin-ajaxadmin-ajax (1)

Once again it is important to remember that the Superboxes contain all full sized products. Alright, let’s see what we’ve got!

          admin-ajax (2)admin-ajax (3)

Skinfood Facial Water Vita-C Cream 75 g ($13)

Quench thirst by delivering a richly nutritious blend of Vitamin C complex and Alaska glacier water deep into the skin. The Vitamin C complex contains extracts from raspberry, acaį berry, cranberry, and strawberry and works to replenish healthy energy to dehydrated, dulled complexion.

How to Use: Apply directly to clean face and let it absorb. It’s recommended to be refrigerated for better moisturizing and soothing results. It can also be used as a hydrating pack by applying thicker amount of the cream.

I am absolutely obsessed with this jar! I think that once this product is gone, I am going to wash the jar out and keep it for something else because it is just beautiful! The consistency of this is thin so a little goes a long way. Just from the feel of it I could definitely see how putting this in the fridge would make it super refreshing and soothing. The scent this has is just a mild lotion kind of scent. Nothing offensive so that is nice. Now I have 2 new pots of moisturizer, I won’t need to buy any for quite awhile.

admin-ajax (4)admin-ajax (5)

Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off 100g ($9)

An effective facial exfoliator rich in various minerals and vitamins. Use occasionally to cleanse away excessive dead skin cells, oil, and skin impurities piling up in the pores to make skin sensitive and troublesome. It’ll bring back healthy radiance and suppleness to skin with just a single use.

How to Use: Spread the formula evenly over wet face after cleansing and gently massage into skin. Rinse off after 10-15 minutes.

I am excited about this one. I love sugar scrubs and this one has a lemony (almost like lemon cleaner) scent that I really enjoy. There isn’t a ton of product in this container but a little bit may go a long way. I am a little concerned that this may be a little too rough for your face but I am willing to give it a try. If I find that it is, I will definitely use it on my body anyways.

admin-ajax (6)

Skinfood Egg White Pore Meringue Foam 200 ml ($13)

Abundant, meringue-like fine bubbles penetrate deep into skin without irritating or dehydrating the skin texture. Highly recommended for weak and sensitive oily skin types.

So this is a cleanser which is awesome because I just ran out of my cleanser. I didn’t buy a new one because I was hoping to get it in one of these boxes. There is something about this product that I can’t get over, it has had me laughing since I read it. The back of the bottle is mostly Korean and just instructions but at the top it says “For skin as smooth as a boiled egg!” Just hilarious, I have never thought to myself “hey, I wish my skin was smooth like a boiled egg.” Maybe I am the only one that finds this funny.

Anyways, when I pumped this cleanser out, it was a little tough to get it moving through the pump. However, it is a nice, light foam that has little to no scent and I think this will be great as a daily cleanser!

admin-ajax (7)

Skinfood Tomato Whitening Toner 180 ml ($17)

A premium Tomato Whitening Toner made from sun-ripe tomato extracts and Vitamin C complex to make skin brighter, clearer, and suppler.

I am very happy to have gotten a toner because I haven’t been using one for quite awhile but I have been wanting to get back into it. To be honest, whitening products make me super nervous. I am so white as it is, if I get any whiter I may be see through. I am hoping that the whitening just means that it will make my face brighter.

           admin-ajax (8)admin-ajax (9) admin-ajax (10)

Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake 4g ($5)

Formulated with cacao extracts, this Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake carries two naturally blending grey, khaki, or brown shades for shaping and defining fine arches with an easy sweep.

Alright, I have to be honest, reading the colour choices for this eyebrow powder scared me. There were two options and they were 01 Grey Khaki Black, and 02 Grey Brown. I am blonde so all of those colours sounded bad. I was hoping for the Grey Brown because I do tend to go with a taupe brown kind of colour for my brows. Also, the fact that black was in the first one was just terrifying. I got lucky and did get 02 Grey Brown!

When I opened it up and swatched them, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. The first colour is a brownish colour with almost a red kind of tint to it. The second colour is a darker brown with a grey tint to it. I think I can definitely make these work so I am relieved.

Overall, I am really happy with this box! For this box I paid $29 and the total retail value of the items is $57. Much like with The Food Shop box, the overall retail value isn’t super high like I have seen with some other boxes from Memebox. However, I will use all of the products in this box so I am glad that I got it! I have another box shipping November 11 and I can’t wait because these boxes were so great for me!
