This month, my box came with an envelope that had my name on it. When I opened it, there was a postcard with a picture of the first Lux Plus Box and on the back, it introduces this subscription, its contents, and the costs (the monthly cadence and pricing is changing to quarterly in June).

Every box includes a pamphlet with detailed information on the products included in the box. It introduces the product with a picture, features the key ingredients in the product and directions for use! I find this especially helpful because some of the products’ directions are in Korean. The pamphlet also introduces the theme and this month it is “You Are Tea-riffic!” I just want to say, I love the teapot on the top of the pamphlet when opened; it reminds me of Mrs. Potts from Beauty And The Beast. Let’s see what came in this month’s box!

CL4 Max Hyaluronic Formula Ampoule, 100ml – Retail Value $61.96 (found here for $46.47), Listed Value $60.00

First, I want to take the time to really appreciate how pretty this bottle is! The color, the top, all of it! This product is meant to give your skin extra hydration and contains sodium hyaluronate, a powerful hydrating ingredient that sinks deep into the skin while attracting water to plump your skin. It also contains rosa centifolia flower water which is a calming and healing ingredient that helps moisturize while tightening pores. The product is pretty thin but not thin enough to run out of the dropper, which I appreciate; I dislike when I apply a product from a dropper and I have to catch it before it goes into my eyes. It also has a nice, light floral scent. After using this product, my skin is left pretty soft and happy.

Moksha Ha Dong Fix-Up Gel Mist, 80 ml – Retail Value $25.00, Listed Value $20.00

This stuff is cool! Looking at it in the bottle, it looks thick and really gel-like; I am talking like hair gel. But it transforms into a cooling mist really easily. It is meant to plump and refresh the skin, making it smooth, hydrated and balanced. Key ingredients include Ha Dong green tea and centella asiatica, a powerful anti-aging ingredient that helps revitalize the skin’s protective barrier and delivers hydration to the skin. I really like this mist, it goes on smooth and leaves my skin soft. While it looks thick and gel-ly it certainly sits on my skin like water.

Milky Dress Oasis Peeling Gel, 3.4 oz. – Estimated Value $13.74 (Buy a 4.7 oz bottle for $18.99, found here for $9.50), Listed Value $15.00

Oh my gosh, this product! It is definitely a WOW item and left me amazed from the first time I used it to the last time I used it, just moments ago. When I squeezed this out of its pretty pastel blue tube, the product was nice and thick. Then I started to rub it in on my hand and it started to pick up dead skin cells of my hand. When I washed it off, my hand was left feeling so soft and smooth! This peeling gel melts away impurities and removes dead skin cells to reveal healthier, cleaner, brighter skin. Key ingredients include Vitis vinifera (grape) skin extract which is an antioxidant that softens and smooths the skin while helping with anti-aging and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The other key ingredient is Pyrus Malus (apple) fruit extract which helps protect skin from free radical damage while providing it with nutrients to hydrate and plump. This is my new favorite exfoliator!

Facetory Soothe Me Tea Tree Mask – Listed Value $5.00

I like two-step masks, they are fun and I really feel like they give my skin a little more than just throwing a sheet mask on it. This one has a toner I applied to my skin first before masking. Directions told me to apply with a gentle tapping motion which I totally did. Then I got to mask! I love the smell of this mask, it wasn’t too overwhelming and was just right. I kept the mask on for 20 minutes and rubbed in the remaining essence into my skin. Afterward, my skin was left bright and soft.

Galantry Step-By-Step Moisturizing Mask – Listed Value $6.00

I think this was my favorite mask in this month’s box and its another two-stepper! The first step had me rub my face with the exfoliating pad it came with, first using the microfiber side then had me flip the pad to the smoother side to pick up any remaining debris. Then I was able to mask! The mask has a light scent and was cold as soon as I put it on. I let it sit for 20 minutes and rubbed in the extra essence into my face. It left my skin feeling so refreshed!

Leaders Hello Moisture Glow Primer Mask – Retail Value $3.00, Listed Value $3.00

This was the first time I have seen a mask to prime skin before makeup and I was super excited to try it out! The mask is meant to hydrate my skin without leaving stickiness. After I washed my face, I put the mask on and left it on for about 10 minutes while I messed with my hair. As soon as I took it off, I rubbed in the remaining essence and let it dry before I put on my makeup primer. My makeup looked stellar after using this mask! Coincidence? I think not!

Kocostar Strawberry Slice Mask – Retail Value $5.00, Listed Value $5.00

This was another first. They are individual mask slices designed for target specific areas on the face or body. It is meant to help your skin feel super smooth and look absolutely radiant. It came with 12 individual pieces and were pretty when on! I used these right under my eyes to help brighten them up after a few nights of little sleep. My skin was brightened and felt great! This probably the most adorable most neat kind of mask I have ever received.

Verdict: I am still so impressed with Facetory’s Lux Plus Box. When they first rolled out, I knew there was no way I would skip signing up. I have not been let down yet; every single product I have received is amazing and really has made my skin glow. Never has my skin ever looked better. This month, I loved every single item in my box (not unusual) and I have incorporated them into my skin routine somehow. The total estimated value is $119.70 which triples the value of the box!

To Wrap Up:

I am a mother of 2 going on 3 soon and enjoy the little things in life, especially in surprise form! Monthly subscription boxes give me that surprise every time I see the mailman delivering them! My favorite boxes include beauty boxes, lifestyle boxes and anything pregnancy-related boxes; my all time favorite is my FabFitFun subscription.

  1. I would love to try this subscription but I am currently subscribed to 4 other ones…. Uggh the addiction, lol.

  2. Ok, so I read that some Korean beauty products may contain horse oil. So, I stopped subbing to this (I used to get the 7lux sub). I really miss it! Can anyone confirm, either way, on this? I don’t mean to be controversial at all. I simply know that most people here know more than I do about skincare products, and needed some info. Thanks so much.

    • From looking online, it sounds like it is a pretty pricey ingredient, so I assume if the product contained horse oil, I would think the name or picture on the product would contain a horse. Because it is expensive, I doubt it is contained in many items.

      • See! I knew someone here would know! Thank you so much. I was worried I wouldn’t understand how it was listed and be using it unknowingly. Thanks! You rock!

  3. I have subscribed to Lux Plus since it started. While I like the change to a quarterly box I am so disappointed in the June curation. I have always been able to use most items in each box, but June’s box seems to target a specific skin type so I won’t be able to use most of the items in the box 🙁. I’m not sure I will continue my subscription. More items but worth $0 when you can’t use them.

  4. Thank you for the amazing review!

    I was able to snag the June box (summer box) for $34.99 and I used the discount code MOMDAY20 and got an extra 20% off! Total paid: $27.96

    So excited to receive their summer box. Not sure if I will continue the seasonal subscription for the hefty price of $49.99 but for the price I paid….the box will be a steal!!

  5. I just signed up. Love a good sale.

  6. I caved. With the 20% off, it was too hard to resist. I need to take a break from this website….LOL

  7. Thanks for the responses. I can’t get the code for the 7 free masks to work. Anyone know the trick?

    • I used MSA20 the other day and that worked. You don’t get 7 sheet masks, but 20% off.

      • Actually MSA20 doesn’t work anymore now, but LUCKY7 did work.

  8. I’m sad I didn’t get this one. I was tempted and it looks amazing! But I signed up for the discounted quarterly with the sheet mask code, its gonna be one amazing box arriving for $35!

    • Definitely a great deal! I think they show you the June box on their site as well 🙂 7 masks and 5 other items.

  9. Has anyone received an email about the change? I subbed last week, but May was sold out and I’m receiving a new subscriber box today. But I have not received an email about the sub going from $35 to $50.

    • I received the email informing me of the change (which I forwarded to MSA). I’ve been subbed since I first saw this box on MSA and because of Carol’s wonderful review, I’ve taken some more items off my swap page and put them in my rotation. I was always sceptical of the peeling masks but I’m game for softer skin!

      Also, they are still selling the Mother’s Day box which look like many items came from previous boxes (mostly March I think) but some of the items are reviewed here on MSA.

      • Cool, I will look for that :). I wonder if they will be charging us $35 for our June box as well as new subscribers? Or if they see me as a new subscriber and I will only be charged $35. I’ll have to email them.

      • The box I received today is very similar to the mother’s day box :). I think the new subscriber box was basically their first lux plus box, March like you said.

        • Yes, I remember seeing an email saying they were sold out (not sure if it was April or May) and a link to the new “starter” box. The new format is nice for me, I was going to pause since I’m on product overload and now I don’t have to.

          • Same here. This is too much for every month. Love the Yadah cleansing balm!!!

        • I love the Yadah cleansing balm too! I did order the Love Goodly mother’s day box to try the Flower Mill cleansing balm as well but it’s pretty pricey. I could see myself re-purchasing the Yadah on Amazon for $20 easily.

          • I was about to order the Yadah cleansing balm on Amazon when someone told me about this box. Instead of ordering it for a little over $20 on Amazon, I was able to get the whole March box for $27, very happy with that 🙂

  10. If I subscribe today, will I get June or May? I really like this May box and am considering subscribing for it. Thanks.

    • Their site states they are taking orders for the June box, but you can reach out to them. Their customer service has always been very helpful. Maybe they still have boxes available? It can’t hurt to ask anyway. Their email is below. Good luck!

    • May is sold out.

  11. I was so impressed with the peeling gel as well! It really left my skin so much softer and brighter after using. I use the Cliv Hyaluronic every day, and it is another standout for me. I was a bit disappointed there was no specialty item this time around, but I was so happy with everything else it truly was minor.

    Facetory has amazing CS, and I have been consistently happy with my subs. I can’t wait to see the new quarterly box!
