Beauteque Beauty Box August 2018 “Kawaii Kit” Review
The theme for this month is “Kawaii Kit” and it features 6 full-size skincare and makeup products with adorable packagings (kawaii means cute in Japanese).
Milatte Fashiony Fruit Soothing Gel – Watermelon – 200g Retail Value $14.99
This refreshing gel is so perfect for summer! I like how the scent is very light and it absorbed almost instantly, leaving my skin moisturized but not sticky at all. Since I received this box towards the end of August, I find this gel to be very soothing on my skin after a day at the beach, too.
Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk – 45ml. Retail Value $10
Isn’t this the cutest hand cream packaging ever? It even has a sticker that looks just like Dole banana sticker! This hand cream has banana extract and milk protein that help heal and hydrate dry skin. It moisturized but didn’t make my hands feel slippery like some hand creams do, and it’s nourishing enough for me to use on my elbows/dry spots too. Plus, it smells like a banana muffin!
CC Mint Coin Tissue – 1.3oz Retail Value $4.99
This tissue is so fun to use! All you have to do is to wet this tissue-tablet with a few drops of water, and it will slowly unfold itself. I used it to clean my makeup as the info card suggested and I’m happy to inform that it removed my makeup completely while gently exfoliated my skin as well. Beauteque Beauty Box recommended this item when you are on the go, so I’ll be packing this convenient tissue in my suitcase next time I travel.
The Saem Saemmul Single Blusher – 0.80oz Retail Value $6.99
I have been impressed with their lotion from their July’s box so I’m excited to try their makeup item. Unlike most blusher Beauteque BB Box sent me, this blush is more pigmented and I can actually see the color on my face. A little goes a long way, and I could use it as an eyeshadow as well. It lasted about 8 hours on my oily skin.
Mermaid Makeup Brush – Retail Value $12.99
This brush is super cute and it has super soft bristles. It would be perfect for setting powder since it’s quite big and fluffy. I gifted this to my best friend’s daughter since she’s a mermaid fan and she loved it so much!
JM Solution Marine Luminous Pearl Deep Moisture 3-Step Mask – Retail Value $5
They have been sending the 3-step masks for the past 4 months and quite frankly I would love to try some other type of masks like their peeling gels or modeling masks rather than getting similar items. For this one, it includes hydrating essence, sheet mask, and an eye cream. It has pearl extract which “helps brighten up dark spots due to acne scarring and sun damage.” The result of this mask was a little underwhelming because I didn’t notice any difference the next day.
Verdict: The total value of this Beauteque Beauty Box is $54.96, a little more than twice what you pay for it, but not as much as their promised value. I think that this box included fun & cute items to use, but the item that I have really been using the most would be the blusher and hand cream. I would say that Beauteque BB Box is really a great box if you love Korean beauty trend and enjoy trying new products!
