Pink Seoul Plus Box March/April 2019 Review

Prior to purchasing a subscription, PinkSeoul will ask you several customization questions. Some products are more appropriate/recommended for a particular skin type, so be sure to figure out your skin type.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - Info Sheet Front Top

Here is the info sheet detailing the products included in this box.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - Max Clinic Collagen Ex Treatment Essence Front Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - Max Clinic Collagen Ex Treatment Essence Open Front

Max Clinic Collagen Ex Treatment Essence, 5.07 oz – Retail Value $55

Holy skincare, Batman! This is one pricy essence, and this product alone covers the entire cost of the box and then some. This is made with 80% hydrolyzed collagen along with swallows nest extract and amino acids, and this has the neatest texture- it is almost like small balls of Jell-O (that I imagine are the collagen) inside a thin toner. This is hydrating and fun, but I haven’t been using it long enough to be able to say if I am getting anti-wrinkle benefits.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - G9 Skin It Clean Blackhead Oil Gel Front Top Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - G9 Skin It Clean Blackhead Oil Gel Back Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - G9 Skin It Clean Blackhead Oil Gel Open Front

G9 Skin It Clean Blackhead Oil Gel, 1.7 oz – Retail Value $10

This gel is interesting! You apply it onto dry skin and rub it in before adding lukewarm water to rinse it away, and the gel removes any sebum or clogged pores on your nose. I don’t get too many blackheads, but I do think this helps to keep my nose clear. Plus, this is definitely the least painful blackhead treatment I have tried—no ripping required!

This item was also included in this month’s PinkSeoul Box.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - CosRX Cooling Aqua Facial Mist Front Top Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - CosRX Cooling Aqua Facial Mist Open Front

CosRX Cooling Aqua Facial Mist, 2.7 oz – Retail Value $15

Every time I get CosRX in a subscription box I do a happy dance- I love this brand! Their products are relatively affordable, and they always have cute packaging. The mist on this spray is fantastic- when this bottle is empty, I will be saving it just to reuse the mister. I have been keeping this by my bed to add a layer of hydration whenever the urge strikes, and I love how refreshing this is thanks to ingredients like Centella and aloe.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - G9 Skin Noni Cleansing Bar Top Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - G9 Skin Noni Cleansing Bar Open Top

G9 Skin Noni Cleansing Bar – Retail Value $12

This cleansing bar didn’t do it for me- I don’t like bars for my face because they are usually ugly chilling on the side of my bathtub (sorry not sorry), and this is made with coconut oil which I abstain from using on my face since it is comedogenic. This does also have jojoba oil for hydration, and it wasn’t a harsh cleanser, but it wasn’t for me.

This item was also included in this month’s PinkSeoul Box.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - Seantree Green Tea Mask Sheet Top

Seantree Green Tea Mask Sheet – Retail Value $2

This sheet mask is made with green tea extract to soothe skin and help balance it. This wasn’t anything groundbreaking, but it was a solid $2 sheet mask that my skin enjoyed for the 15 minutes I wore it.

This item was also included in this month’s PinkSeoul Box.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - Tony Moly Dr. Logy Sheet Mask In Sensitive Top

Tony Moly Dr. Logy Sheet Mask in Sensitive – Retail Value $4.95

This mask is made with chamomile and lavender to calm sensitive skin and add some moisture, and it did just that! I found it soothing to my skin, and I appreciated the 15 minutes of relaxation this gave me.

Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - The Saem Saemmul Dual-Tip Eyeshadow in Chai Tea Top Pink Seoul Plus Box March-April 2019 - The Saem Saemmul Dual-Tip Eyeshadow in Chai Tea Closeup Top

The Saem Saemmul Dual-Tip Eyeshadow in Chai Tea – Retail Value $10

This dual-ended eyeshadow stick has eyeshadow in the cap that a spongey wand dips into. The shade Chai Tea features a shimmering yellow gold eyeshadow on one end and a shimmering gold brown on the other, and the packaging on this makes it a great eyeshadow to throw in your makeup bag for travel- no other brushes necessary!

This item was also included in this month’s PinkSeoul Box.

The Verdict: I seriously look forward to my PinkSeoul Plus box so much! I love that I get a full skincare routine with enough time between boxes to actually use them. When I take a look at my skincare routines over the past few months, I am consistently using the majority of the products I receive in this box, and the same can’t be said for some other skincare boxes. I am seriously wowed by my new fancy essence with a fun texture, and I absolutely love my CosRX mist. Value-wise, this box promises a value of at least $80, and this month they blew that out of the water with a total value of $108.95.

  1. I love centella, I will have to try that mist!

  2. Wish this box was still available! Some great products. I wonder if combo skin would have got similar items.

  3. I would love to try the essence. Sounds like a great box.
