Facetory FOUR-ever Fresh Subscription Box Review – November 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Facetory envelope closed

Facetory is a monthly sheet mask facial subscription. The company aims to provide its members with the latest cult faves from the Korean sheet mask trend. Rather than arriving in a box, like the SEVEN LUX subscription, this smaller FOUR-ever Fresh version comes in a cool pouch that has the same awesome design. Love their packaging!

This is a review of the FOUR-ever Fresh subscription level ($5.95 per month + shipping), which includes 4 curated sheet masks made from traditional fabrics like cotton and cellulose. They also offer a SEVEN LUX subscription level, which includes 7 curated sheet masks with slightly higher-functioning ingredients for $15.95 + $3.95 shipping a month (think hydrogels and other more sophisticated ingredients).

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Facetory happy birthday marketing materials

November marks Facetory’s first birthday! To celebrate this momentous occasion, these precious stickers were included. Facetory and I share the same birthday month, so I thought this was a neat coincidence.

Happy birthday, Facetory!

I love that Facetory includes an information card regarding each mask’s name, retail value, and ingredients. I personally appreciate the latter since I have sensitive combination skin and am mindful of what I put on my face.

Medi-Heal R:NA Whitening Mask

Medi-Heal R:NA Whitening Mask — Listed Value $3.50

Per the info sheet included whitening means brightening in Korean skincare. This mask is supposed to help reduce any hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure or acne. It also includes vitamin c and niacin. I decided to use it the morning after a late night out. My skin prior to trying this mask out was dull and ruddy, but after leaving it on for about twenty minutes I could see a difference! My complexion looked a bit clearer and my skin felt softer. The mask’s serum is a bit creamier than others I have tried. I took full advantage of the remaining mask solution by scooping it out of the packaging and slathering it on my neck too. The mask really adheres to your face well so it is rather comfortable to wear.

Candy O’ Lady Sweet Lemon Candy Mask

Candy O’ Lady Sweet Lemon Candy Mask — Listed Value $3.50

I am a sucker for beauty products that smell like food. One of my favorite perfumes is Lush’s Vanillary and I sense that is mainly because I smell like a cookie when I am wearing it. This mask legitimately smells like a lemon bar— it is HEAVENLY! This is another brightening mask that includes niacinamide, allantoin, and trehalose that works to protect and lock in moisture also. The fact sheet also suggested I use this before applying makeup because it works as a great primer. The mask did, in fact, work to make my skin matte and far less oily. That pro tip they gave me was gold! My make-up application was great after using this mask!

Yadah Collagen Mask Pack

Yadah Collagen Mask Pack — Retail Value $3.50

Some people may be disgusted by the idea of snail mucin being an ingredient in this face mask, but I was all in!  Snail mucin is the slime or mucus that helps protect their exposed bottoms against cuts, bacteria, and UV Rays! So, if it does all that for a snail, it certainly will work for my face! This mask also includes collagen which helps firm the skin and improve wrinkles. After using this mask my face did feel taut. Getting this mask is a far better option than having snails sliding around on your face, right?  To each their own.

M.K.I O2 Firming Skin Mask

M.K.I O2 Firming Skin Mask – Retail Value $3.50

I have saved the best for last with this mask! I have done plenty of sheet masks in my day, but I have never seen a three-step mask! The first step has a cleanser that turns into a foam. I have seen the charcoal foam masks online, but have never tried anything like this before. I could feel the foam bubbles popping on my skin. It was rather exhilarating! The mask itself almost felt like it was a gel on one side. It seamlessly clung to my face. The mask really made my face feel firmer and it calmed my skin a great deal. The mask is made with seven different extracts, including oxygen, that really help your skin glow! Step three was the real aqua essence. The final step was to help with brightening as well. My skin felt and looked amazing after this mask. I would do this mask again for sure!

Verdict: This is my first Facetory box and I enjoyed it immensely! This isn’t my first rodeo when it comes to sheet masks, but I generally use clay masks on my combination skin. I am really impressed with these masks’ results. They delivered on firming, calming, and brightening my complexion. Plus, I did the math: at $3.50 a piece these four masks would total $14 dollars. This subscription is $5.95 plus $2.95 shipping, which is around $5 less than what you would pay for these at the retail value! That is a pretty great deal. It is like getting each mask for $2.23! This box is a no-brainer as far as I am concerned.

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? No, order by the end of the month to get that month’s box. If you sign up today, you will receive the December box. But three of the masks are available in their shop!

Value Breakdown: This box comes in at $8.90 a month when factoring in the cost of shipping. The average price per item for the seven masks comes to $2.23. The masks are available to buy on their site at $3.50 a piece and sites like eBay and Amazon sell them in bulk. That is great, but if you only want one mask instead of a dozen of the same one, it is not the greatest value. Facetory’s box is a fantastic deal and allows you to try masks you may never have before for less!

What was your favorite Facetory mask this month?

  1. The Yadah snail mucin mask was my fave too this month! I had to cancel my sub so didn’t get Dec due to financial issues but for the few months I had FaceTory I loved their masks so much! It was so nice to get to try different ones and not have to buy in bulk in case they didn’t work out well for me 😊 I’m hoping to get them back sometime next year once my finances are settled down a bit (holidays and a fixed income don’t mix well lol) love your review! ❤️ 🤗 ❤️

    • Thank you so much, Lori! And yes, it is so nice to sample. Bulk purchases are cheap, but being stuck with a product you won’t use is a drag! It is a fun sub box for sure!
