SkinStore Limited Edition Men’s Collection Box Review

Skinstore Fathers Day June 2019 mens limited edition box review bag

Our items came in a handsome faux leather bag.

Included is a little booklet that shows all of the products we will find inside the bag.

Time to dive in!


SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, 4 ml – Estimated Value $22.13 (buy a full size 30 ml for $166.00)

I have reviewed this item before, and I still think it smells like baked beans. The main power ingredient here is the L-ascorbic acid, which is basically vitamin C on steroids. Vitamin C is great for your skin because it promotes collagen turnover and helps protect against free radicals. This serum is super lightweight and absorbs easily, leaving no residue behind. It is a perfect step before a nightly moisturizer, or use it alone if you like to keep it simple.

BABOR 3D Hydro Gel Eye Pads, 4 pack – Retail Value $29.00

While I can’t quite convince Will to use sheet masks, these clear gel eye pads are subtle enough when worn that I might manage to get him to try them. I did “borrow” a pair to test myself and I loved the plumping effect they had on my dull under eye skin. I have been a little under the weather recently and the firming and brightening was exactly what I needed to feel human again. I plan on stashing these in the fridge so Will can try a pair out after an afternoon of heat and yard work.


The Organic Pharmacy Ultra Light Moisture Gel, 75 ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $65.00

Will is a no-fuss kind of guy, so a gel moisturizer is something he will probably love. It is lightweight and absorbs almost instantly. It is worth mentioning the amazing scent this gel has! It smells like cedar and woods, and everything outdoorsy. The scent alone made this a winner in my eyes but if you care less about that, you will be happy to know this formula is full of aloe and jojoba oil, meaning loads of cooling and moisture.

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask, 150 ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $58.00

UPDATE: This is not the full size, it’s 1/3 of the size. Estimated Retail Value $19.33

I have reviewed this mask before and my impression is pretty much the same this time around. I love this mask because although it does have clay, it has a lot less than most masks, making it less drying. It is full of charcoal and peat, which are wonderfully clarifying for pores. This mask is pitch black and a bit of work to remove, so I highly recommend using it before a shower and rinsing it off under the showerhead rather than in a sink. It makes quite a mess!

Murad Essential C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30, 1.7 fl oz. – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $63.00

Convincing Will to use sunscreen daily has become one of my life goals, and I might not ever truly accomplish this feat. I am willing to give it another try with this high-quality sunscreen cream from Murad. Along with SPF30, it has a nice healthy dose of that anti-aging magic vitamin C. It is lightweight and a breeze to apply, leaving behind a delicate citrus scent. If I can’t convince him to use it, I might just add it to my summer rotation as I love SPF.

Redken Brews Texture Pomade, 100 ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $18.00

Lastly, we have a clay-based pomade. Will does use a pomade product daily to keep his wild hair in place but still flexible. He doesn’t seem to be terribly picky about brands but I think he might really like the gel/putty texture of this product and the slightly gritty clay in the formula which will keep his hair from getting oily.

The Verdict: This limited edition bag has a total value of $217.46, which is a great value for a $69 purchase. Between Will and myself, everything will absolutely be used! This is a really excellent gift for any guy in your life, especially with so many of them being difficult to buy for. I love bringing bags like this home to will because he never buys skincare for himself or takes the time to research decent brands. I think my favorite items are the eye pads and the sunscreen cream. Will is going to be partial to the mud mask and the pomade for sure!

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I got this box for $25 with the new coupon and am so pleased with contents, it was really a steal! I put 3 of the products for swap and kept the ferulic c, the gel pads and Murad sunscreen for myself. The bag will come in useful for storing my skincare products.

  2. Thanks. I was just able to order this with the code. Appreciate the posting.

  3. You ladies are very savvy with the great coupons!

    It’s great to see the subs for the gents, now they can squeal over their boxes, too! 😄

  4. Now I’m curious about the Peter Roth mud size as well. This is a big selling point. If I got this is would totally be for me and not my husband 😶

  5. I ended up getting my dad the Birchbox deal for 6 boxes for $60.00 bucks and that great free gift set One For All which I know he’ll love ❤️ To all the dads Happy Early Fathers Day 💙

    • Wow, that’s a great deal!

  6. I thought the mask is only 50 ml? I would totally buy this box if the mask would be full size.

    • Carmen I think you are totally right based on pictures and the size comparison to the organic pharmacy and Redken products. Which is a HUGE difference in value. That definitely does not look like 5 fl oz. The Redken product is 100 ml but looks bigger, twice as big possibly.
      Megan would you please confirm if this is 50 ml or 150 ml? I wouldn’t want someone to order this and be disappointed.

      • Yes, someone said on the last post for this box that it was 50ml. He was disappointed because it was the reason he ordered the kit.

      • I went to the Skinstore site and it states its 50ml.

      • That was me. The box is still a great value but the size discrepancy on the PTR should be corrected.

      • Tom, I would contact skinstore and see if they can help. I’m assuming it was originally posted incorrectly there and MSA just copied and pasted? But yes, this post needs to be corrected to avoid future disappointments. Beautyfix has the same thing happen with the same exact product a few years back. The 50ml is a “full size”, but is a smaller full size than the 150ml one. Everyone thought they were getting 150ml and were not happy when the 50ml came.

    • Thanks for the catch Carmen! Updated!

  7. Code ELLIE30 makes this box $49. It’s insane.

    • Used it. It works! Also comes with a cool full size grooming/pre-shave/beard oil.

      • I hope you will not be disappointed but the bears oil is only a small 2ml sample.
        The box has still a Great value!

    • I came across code FATHER20 that took $20 off, but I just tried your code, and it actually takes a tad more off making the box $48.30! Even better! 🙂
