When it comes to boxes like this when there are instructions and ingredients that you definitely want to know about, it’s so useful to have a card that will give you all the necessary information. This is especially helpful when the information on the packaging is in another language!
I didn’t 100% like the smell of this, it was a little too perfumey for what I like in a face wash. It felt really nice though while I was using it and made my skin feel soft, not dried out like some soaps can. I do not think it was as foamy as it was described either. All in all though, pretty good!
Okay so it takes a couple minutes for this to warm up, but man did it feel really nice on my eyes. It warms up, though not too much that would be uncomfortable. You can pull the tabs apart and then hook them onto your ears to stay in place. I laid down to go to sleep with this on for about 15 minutes to relax….and fell asleep. Plus, how cute is this panda?!
Sixteen Brand Mask Pack (Peach & Apple) – Retail Value $1.87
This smelled more peach than apple, but it’s okay. I don’t like fruit scented masks much either. When I am using anything for my skin, I like it to be a fresh and mild scent. My skin did feel refreshed after this mask.
Sixteen Brand Mask Pack (Sage Tea) – Retail Value $1.87
Now, this smelled so nice. I know I am always talking about the smell first, but that’s the first thing you will experience when you open the package. This one definitely smelled of sage, but only very slightly and it was mostly a very fresh scent. Definitely left my skin feeling soft and it also rinsed off really thoroughly.
COSRX Clear Fit Master Patch – Retail Value $3.93
I wasn’t expecting to see anything like this in here since it’s not a “mask” necessarily. These little patches are about the size of a remote control button. They are sticky and clear so you can not really see them on your skin. Supposedly you can wear these under makeup, but I tried it and you could still see the shiny round areas where I had them placed. I also put these on some of my breakouts this past week overnight, and they really kept things under control.
I didn’t love this mask because it didn’t have any scent that I could sense anyway. I am a little congested, but I smelled nothing. I also didn’t love how “juicy” this mask was when I took it out. Too much liquid. However, my skin looked so nourished when I took the mask off.
Neogen Sheet Mask (Ocean Feeding Fiber Mask)– Estimated Value $3.00 (currently out of stock. Buy a 5-pack for $15)
My skin was so soft after this one. Soft, bright, and my skin tone was incredible! Also, this smelled very fresh and soapy.
The Face Shop Mascream Sheet Mask – Retail Value $4.80
Another winner when it comes to the scent. This smelled so fresh and clean! My face was soft and glowing, which is exactly what you want to happen after putting one of these masks on. So nice.
Neogen Sheet Mask (Black Caviar Essential Mask) – Retail Value $4.00
This is supposed to refine your skin which I guess means to make your pores look smaller. I don’t know how that can be done in 10 minutes, but I will say that my skin tone looked great. Fresh and youthful!
April Skin Magic Snow Mask – Estimated Value $2.50 (Buy a box of 10 for $25)
I really liked this mask! It smelled nice, though still a little too perfumey. This felt very cool on my skin and just really refreshing. I am not sure if this made my skin a little red or if it was just me this past week.
Labiotte Freniq Turn Over First Mask – Retail Value $5.61 (found on sale here for $1.12)
I did not love the smell of this one, either. In fact, my skin was a little irritated when I took this mask off. It felt a little itchy and was slightly red. Clearly, something in this one didn’t mix well for me.
Verdict: I have to say, for $29.95 (free shipping) it is amazing to receive 10 masks, plus the bonus cleansing cream. The total value of items in this box is $40.34. Most of these were really really nice with only a couple that I didn’t love. This type of box is certainly a luxury because I don’t usually buy masks or “spa” type items so it’s a treat to get these boxes.
The Wrap Up:
