PinkSeoul Mystery Box Review
Their regular boxes come with an info sheet, but this mystery box came without. Let’s see what I got!
This cleanser is made with bentonite and kaolin clay as well as orange peel and lavender essential oils. This is great for oily and acne-prone skin and didn’t cause any sensitivity or breakouts. This is something I actually received in my March 2018 Pink Seoul box, but I am not mad about it.
Hyggee All In One Cream, Full-Size! – Retail Value $45
I was excited to see this jar- Hyggee is a pretty popular K-Beauty brand, and I have tried the sheet mask version from this line. The first ingredient on this moisturizer is birch sap, and it also has niacinamide, macadamia seed oil, and cocoa seed butter near the top of the ingredients as well as ceramides and jojoba seed oil. This cream is absolutely luscious- the texture is to die for and it sinks into my skin as I apply it like a cool drink of water on a hot day. I have been focusing on applying this to my cheeks, which are the dry spots in my combo skin, and it hasn’t been too heavy for me nor has it caused any clogged pores. I don’t know if I would reach for this during the humid months in south Louisiana, but it is perfect for what my skin needs right now. I also like that it came with a spatula to keep things sanitary, and a space to write the date you open it so you can keep track of when the product will expire.
CosRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask, 2.02 oz – Retail Value $18
I don’t think you guys can know how excited I was when I saw this in the box. The morning this was delivered I actually read a review of this on Instagram and was really into it, so when I pulled this out of the box I literally started shouting “ahhhhhh!” The timing could not have been better, and I am happy to report that it lives up to my high hopes. This has a gel texture that isn’t too thick and spreads out evenly over the skin, and it is made with propolis extract as its first ingredient. This has been a great overnight mask to layer over my Hyggee all in one cream, as well as other moisturizers. I wake up the next morning with firm and hydrated skin, and my redness is reduced, too.
Re:Cipe Slowganic Sheet Mask in Tangerine – Retail Value $3
This sheet mask is made with niacinamide and mandarin orange extract to brighten the complexion. Other notable ingredients include allantoin and cucumber extract, and this indeed left my skin a bit brighter after using.
Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk, Full-Size! – Retail Value $10
Tony Moly is the king of fun product packaging and this hand cream is no exception. It smells like banana candy (remember the banana runts, aka the best candy ever?) and actually absorbed quickly into my skin without leaving it greasy. I thought it would be all gimmick and no action, but this is hand cream that works surprisingly well.
The Verdict: This was an exceptional mystery box from Pink Seoul! All of the products included are great quality from known K-Beauty brands, and I am really excited to have received a new sleeping mask from Cosrx. I think they hit all the major categories, too, with a cleanser, sleeping mask, moisturizer, and sheet mask! Value-wise, Pink Seoul promised a $60 value, and this box has an $88 value.
