Beauteque Beauty Box March 2018 Review
This is the first time I’ve received an info card from Beauteque Beauty Box. Usually, they sent a link to a site with product information, and I’m glad they changed since sometimes the packaging of their items does not include an English translation.
The theme for this month is “Trending Now” and it features 6 full-size, trendy products!
Annie’s Way Jelly Mask Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid – 250ml Retail Value $23.00
This clear mask claims to moisturize, exfoliate, and brighten skin because it has arbutin, an ingredient well-known for reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation, and hyaluronic acid.
I applied a thick layer after cleaning my face with the provided spatula and left the mask on for 20 minutes (15-30 minutes is the suggested time), then I scraped it off with the same spatula. The mask has no scent and it felt nice and cool on my skin. The experience was very soothing. I noticed that my skin had brightened up a little after just one use! I will continue to use this mask weekly in hopes of seeing even better results!
Esfolio Pure Skin Snail Hand Cream – 100ml Retail Value $8.99
Snail secretion is one of the most famous ingredients in the K-beauty industry for its anti-aging property. I have used snail facial cream before and I’ve loved it! This hand cream has a very light floral scent that I almost didn’t notice. When I first applied it to my hands, it felt a tad bit sticky, but that feeling was gone in less than 10 seconds. The cream absorbed really fast and left my hands moisturized but not oily. It doesn’t leave my skin with any uncomfortably slippery feeling like some other hand creams I’ve used. So far, I’m a big fan! 😉
Jigott Cat’s Eye Mascara Super Lash – 12g Retail Value $10.99
I’m loving this mascara! And I’ve been using it every day after receiving it in my mailbox! This mascara is a tubing mascara, which means it can be removed easily with lukewarm water. It coated my lashes evenly, extended the length of my lashes without clumping, and lasted all day without smudging (not a lot of mascara can do this for me as I have super oily skin!). I highly recommend it if you love the natural, effortless lashes look.
A’Pieu Juicy Pang Water Blusher in RD01 – 2oz Retail Value $7.99
The packaging of this blush is similar to a nail polish bottle; so cute! The blush itself is pigmented yet blendable – it reminds me of Glossier cloud paint, my HG blush! It has a sweet peachy scent and the color is so flattering. It lasted all day on my skin, so this is another hit for me!!
Etude House Heating Eye Mask – Retail Value $3.99
Just when you think the items in this box couldn’t get any cuter… This cat eye mask gets 100/100 packaging from me! Look at how cute and relaxed those cats are! The mask itself is a-okay for me (I was hoping for it to be warmer than it actually is). I wore it to sleep and I think I slept pretty well that night.
Cute Bear Microfiber Hair Drying Cap – Value $4.99
The info card says “There’s no such thing as ‘too cute!’ but I squealed when I saw this bear cap! It’s just tooooo cuteeeee! (My 10 year-old inner self is dancing with joy!) I used it to dry my hair right after I washed it and it has been working pretty well. You can use it to keep your hair away from your face while applying makeup or to keep your hair in place during hair treatments. I wish the cap had a hanger so that it could be dried out a little easier, but hey, it’s so cute you can’t complain!
Verdict: The total value of this box is $59.95, which is more than twice what you pay for it, but not as much as their promised value. Not that I mind though because the items this box are just so cute! The quality is there, too. I can’t pick my favorite item from this box since I love all of them so far! Overall, Beauteque Beauty Box would be a great box if you enjoy trying new Korean beauty products. I am looking forward to next month’s box!
