Here is the info sheet detailing the products.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box leaders

Leaders Shining Shield Gold Foil Face Mask – Retail Value $5

I got the Aqua Shield gold mask in the April box, and I am really happy to get the same mask in a different version. It fits well and the gold foil keeps the mask from being drippy while my skin still soaks up all the mask goodness. Plus, I get to feel really fancy wearing gold foil on my face. Wins all around!

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box hyggee

Hyggee All-In-One Wrinkle Care Mask – Retail Value $5

This mask fit to my face well and didn’t slide off even when I was standing and walking. My skin absorbed all of the mask essence quickly, too, so my skin wasn’t left feeling sticky.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box wrap mask

Manyo Factory Bifidalacto Intensive 10x Wrap Mask – Retail Value $6

This box is my first introduction to the brand Manyo Factory, and I don’t think it is my cup of tea. I was excited because this mask is a two-piece hydrogel mask, and hydrogels are my favorite! The bottom half off the mask fit really well, but for some reason, the top half was very ill-fitting—to the point where I had to take it off after a few minutes because of how uncomfortable it was. This mask also had a slight chlorine smell, which isn’t exactly my jam.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box moist rebirth

Manyo Factory Ultra Moist Rebirth Ampoule Mask – Retail Value $5

Unlike the wrap mask, this mask fit my face really well. Like the wrap mask, this had a faint chemical smell that my brain classified as chlorine. I don’t understand why there is such a chemical tinge to the scent of these masks. I also don’t know who thought naming a mask “moist rebirth” was a good idea.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box aqua bonding

Manyo Factory Aqua Bonding Cream Mask – Retail Value $5

At this point, when I opened the mask and found it smelled like the other two Manyo Factory masks I didn’t even wear it. While the chlorine smell isn’t very strong, I just don’t get down with continuously putting on face masks that smell like pool chemicals.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box innisfree

Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask in Acai Berry  – Retail Value $2

Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask in Bija – Retail Value $2

Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask in Pomegranate – Retail Value $2

This mask unfolds really easily, however it is so thin that when I tried to reposition it on my face after a few minutes it ripped. These masks made for a comfortable and relaxing 20 minutes, other than the ripping snafu with one of them.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box goodal

Goodal Infused Water Mild Sheet Mask in Tea Tree – Retail Value $3

Goodal Infused Water Mild Sheet Mask in Lotus – Retail Value $3

These two masks are pleasant but basic. They were scentless, but they were soothing to my skin. These are the masks I would give to someone with sensitive skin who is new to the sheet mask game as an introductory mask.

Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box cat 1 Pink Seoul Monthly Mask Box cat 2

Etude House My Beauty Tool Hair Band – Retail Value $5

This hair band fits my head comfortably to keep my hair out of my face without being too tight, and I absolutely adore the cat ears. This was this month’s accessory item across all three boxes this month.

The Verdict: Opening a box full of ten masks is always a bit overwhelming, but broken down over the course of the month, that is a different mask every three days. The Manyo Factory masks were a bit of a bummer, but at least now I know it is a brand that isn’t for me. The rest of the masks I enjoyed, and I thought the bonus was really cute. I calculated a value of $43, and I am happy with that in a $29.95 box that doesn’t promise a retail value.

The Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The May box is no longer available,  but you can subscribe to the July box here.
