This month’s box is the first one I have received since they updated their Lux Plus from monthly to quarterly. My box came with a note from FaceTory introducing their new plan. The box is significantly bigger, too!!

FaceTory also sends an amazing pamphlet that features all the products by name and image, details directions for use (which is great since most of the products have directions on the packages in Korean) and lists primary key ingredients for each product. Since the box is now bigger, instead of a pamphlet I received a whole booklet! With the new layout, though, I noticed key ingredients are no longer listed. I really appreciated that; hopefully they will list them again!

BRTC Vitamin C Powder Cleansing Tea Bags (5) –  Listed Value $5.00, Buy a box of 15 for $17.32

This first product is awesome and can be used in three different ways! It can be used as an enzyme pack by soaking the bag in water and rubbing your hands together to create a rich lather then massaging it into your face. It can be used as an exfoliating cleaner by running it under warm water and massaging it over your face, or it can be used in a spa-like manner by filling a bowl with warm water, dropping a tea bag in and soaking your feet! I have combined uses and used it to exfoliate my skin, then I dropped it into a foot soak. It smelled nice and left my skin feeling really soft! I love that there are 5 (well I have 4 left). These are great for long days when my skin needs a pick-me-up.

Soroci Calming Essense – Retail Value $17.28 USD ($34.95 AUD), Listed Value $37.00

I love Soroci, especially since I received the rice embryo skin softener in my first Lux Plus box back in March. I used this right after washing my face and it really calms my skin, leaving it bright and relaxed. The book that came in my box instructs to use when my face is on fire – this is great after a day at the beach or at the waterpark, where we spend most of our weekends. I was very happy to receive this product at this time!

Aperire Be Frozen Pore Mask, 120 g – Retail Value $20.10, Listed Value $25.00

Oh my goodness – this mask! As soon as I put it on, my skin instantly felt cool! That is because of the Canadian colloidal clay which contains menthol. I also really love the smell of this! This is the perfect mask to wear after a long day out in the sun and just washes out the sweat, oil, chlorine or whatever else my skin faced that day. This is truly a great product and I look forward to stocking up on more in the future.

Commleaf Rose Blooming Mist, 70 mL – Retail Value $25.30, Listed Value $23.00

I have received a few mist bottles lately in boxes and see them included in other boxes I don’t subscribe to. I like to use them before bed, after washing my face in the mornings, and when skin needs a pick-me-up. This one contains the Rosa Damascena essence which is supposed to bear antioxidant properties meant to hydrate the skin. The bottle is an easy pump bottle and has a light scent of roses.

Pureforet Centella Multi Lotion, 150 mL – Retail Value $25.19, Listed Value $25.00

With summer comes more breakouts. It’s just the way it is and I am already seeing it in my own skin. I am sure it’s due to all the exposure to the sun, sweat and oils, and water that I submerge my face in. This lotion contains strong antibacterial and regenerative powers and is great for keeping the breakouts to a minimum. This product has 4 essential ingredients including Centella Asiatica, madecassic acid, willow extract, and tea tree oil. The four ingredients work to suppress bacteria that causes skin problems, rand emove unnecessary dead skin cells to heal the skin. This lotion also smells like tea tree oil, which I absolutely love! I won’t use this daily, but will use it as needed.

Medius Heart Ppyoung Eye Patch (3) – Retail Value $10.48, Listed Value $4.00 (per mask)

These are super fun! It is a heart-shaped hydrogel eye patch used to revitalize tired-looking eyes! These are great for the morning to really wake up the skin around my eyes and keep that super-sensitive area hydrated and bright. I received 3 of these which is awesome!!

Nohj Intra Gold 24K Modeling Mask – Retail Value $8.46, Listed Value $10.00

When I first looked at this box, I thought for sure there were a couple of masks in there but nope! It is one mask and it just includes everything needed to make it. First, I am to mix the 1 gel and 2 powder activator using the plastic tray that was included in the box. Then, using the spatula, apply it to my face. This is a peel mask, so after about 20-30 minutes, the mask is ready to come off. Peel-off masks can be intimidating and can actually hurt when applied, so I was a bit anxious to try it out. FaceTory included a tip to make the edges thicker so that the mask is easier to pull off. I did this and it wasn’t too bad of an experience! My skin was left really smooth! I was not able to find this for purchase, but the link above is directly to the manufacturer.

I really wish I had this mask a couple of weeks ago when I came back from the waterpark pretty red. My skin hurt and was hot and this would have been perfect! It has calendula and Centella Asiatica leaf extract to help calm, hydrate and protect dry and irritated skin. I am putting this in my emergency kit for another day when my skin is hit hard.

I really liked this mask! After washing my face, I put it on and let it work its powers! In addition to little breakouts, my skin has been pretty dry. I chose this because it is promised to deliver hydration using its marine collagen and Centella Asiatica ingredients. This mask left my skin plump and soft and the essence smelled really nice too!

Allantoin and sodium hyaluronate ingredients in this mask gave my skin a huge boost of moisture and hydration. As I mentioned before, my skin has been suffering from dryness and this was heaven-sent! I used this mask in the morning, while the kids were asleep when I woke up before my alarm. It really made my skin look so amazing!

Meg Two Step Jelly Mask Firming + Radiance – Retail Value $6.00, Listed Value $7.00

I love two-step masks! They are fun to do and really makes me feel like I am pampering myself a little more than just throwing a sheet mask on. With this mask, I exfoliated my skin with the lactic acid peeling swab included in step one. Then I rubbed the essence into the mask, opened up step two, and applied the mask. After using this two-step mask, my skin was left rejuvenated and so soft. Key ingredients in this mask include carrot root extract; carrot root extract contains vitamins B, C, D, and E meant to protect the skin from UV rays and produce anti-aging and rejuvenating benefits.

BRTC Aqua Rush Pearl Mask – Retail Value $4.00

Another hydrating mask!! This one contains hyaluronic acid which can make the skin look and feel more supple. It is said to reduce wrinkles and redness, which makes them perfect for after-sun relaxation. This mask did hydrate my skin and left it looking and feeling brand new; my skin was soft and bright!

Facetory Lux Plus Review Summer 2019 - Sticker Sheet Top

The final item in this month’s box is a bonus stickers sheet! It is so summery and really puts me in the mood to throw on my swimsuit, get some watermelon, and catch some rays. With all the amazing masks I got this month, I don’t fear the consequences of the sun too much.

Verdict: This is the first month of the new FaceTory quarterly box and I was not disappointed. I received so many things – a total of 5 full-sized face products and 9 masks! This quarter is really focused on after-sun skincare, which is more than welcomed for me since we spend a lot of weekends out in the sun. During the summer, I don’t wear a lot of makeup – I like a natural sun-kissed look during summer months and with this quarter’s box, my skin looks sun-kissed and super hydrated. This box costs $49.95; when totaled up with the sales prices I found online, the items have a total retail value of $133.49. The listed items were a little inflated, totaling up to $181.50, which is only a difference of approximately $40. With my found totals of $133.49, the box is almost tripled in value which is a stellar deal!

  1. I love this box so far. And they do a great job of adding educational materials which I really like! I didn’t continue the sub due to money reasons, but will definitely get it again!

  2. I signed up for this box and used the 7 free masks promo. Just got it today and has a total of 16 masks! Plus the additional five full size items. Awesome products and value.

  3. I subscribed yesterday to the lux box and it shipped TODAY! Wow!

  4. Why are all the sheet mask made in Korea ? I only use face mask that are made in USA , I heard that Korean Sheet mask were folded by people and not machines so they are questionable if they are safe and clean to put on face. Just FYI 😊

    • Facetory’s sheet masks are all from Korea, because their mission is to make Korean sheet masks more easily accessible to those outside of Korea.

    • What a bizarre comment. I find Korean masks to be much better than any made in the US. Better ingredients and much more potent. Who cares if they are folded by hand?

      • Right! And they wear protective gloves/gear anyway.

        • And at least a human being is getting paid instead of another job lost to automation, if this comment is even true lol

      • Agreed. I have tried several made in USA masks and most do not compare to the Korean.

    • To my knowledge, sheet masks were used and popularized in Asia way before America. I remember seeing all those ‘what is this????’ articles about sheet masks a few years back. Korea’s skincare technology is also way ahead of the US’s. Plus, who wants a sub box full of stuff they can easily grab at a local retailer? So, not surprising that these sheet masks are from Korea. Folding the masks by hand for each pack sounds like a lot of human labor anyway, but even if it is done this way, at least a couple more people on this planet have a way to support themselves (+ family). When you take the mask out of the pack your fingers are touching the mask everywhere anyway

  5. Really great review and I would love to try this!

  6. got mine yesterday! Was thrilled but had to go out of town so i haven’t gotten to play with it yet! Got mine for 27 dollars so I”m thrilled at the value!

    • How did you get it for that price? Thanks.

      • If you signed up one day at the end of May I believe, you could get it for 35, plus there was a code for an extra 20 percent off.

        • Oh, I see, thank you Jackie. I did find a code that gets it down to $37. I have to find it again. I wonder if the one you are talking about still works.

          • Hi there, it was a while ago and honestly I don’t remember the details. It was an into offer…I got to chose that or like 9 free masks. I’m low on $$ so I chose the bigger discount. If you search the past threads, there is the details but I believe that particular discount is expired now.

  7. Wow this box keeps this up and it will be in the running for the best at the end of the year

  8. Code OMGYES gets you ten dollars off this box for 24 hours only

  9. Great review! I am so glad this box is still available and I am going to order right now. Thanks.

  10. They should stop inflating price WTH , sub boxes please realize this is so off-putting.
    The box is good otherwise but still…🙄🤦
    Great review Carol ! ❤️

  11. Mine is on the way! Amazing box! Great review 🥰
