Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 info

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

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 ampoule 1 Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 ampoule 2

Eyenlip Black Snail Amino 14 Ampoule – Retail Value $29

This ampoule is made with snail secretion filtrate and 14 different amino acids to fight signs of aging and heal damaged skin. If you don’t follow the 10-step skincare method, think of an ampoule as a serum and layer it on top of your toner and under your moisturizer. This had a slightly sticky finish, but that went away when I layered my moisturizer on top. This was soothing and non-irritating to my skin, too.

Eyenlip Calamansi Vita Cleansing Gel – Retail Value $20

I wanted to love this cleansing gel but I just couldn’t. You use this as the first step in your cleansing routine to break up makeup, dirt, and sunscreen, before going in with a different cleanser to sweep it all away. This didn’t irritate my skin, but it didn’t feel like it did a good job breaking down everything on my face and getting it ready for the second step in a double cleanse routine.

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 toner 1 Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 toner 2

Eyenlip Multi Care Cream and Toner in AHA/BHA – Retail Value $20

This is a hydrating toner that is designed to do a little more than your basic toner, and the AHA/BHAs exfoliate your skin. I feel like the Cica or Peptide toner would have been a better fit for my sensitive skin, as I try to limit my chemical exfoliants in order to keep my easily-angered skin happy.

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 cleanser

From Nature Echoice Tea Cleansing Foam – Retail Value $12

This is a foaming cleanser made with fermented tea, which is a ~trendy~ K-beauty skincare ingredient. This cleanser was too harsh for my sensitive, dry skin, so I will be passing this along.

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 volcano pack

Eyenlip Mask Pack in Volcanic Clear Wash Off – Retail Value $4

I liked this mask. It has a thick and creamy texture that spreads across the skin easily, and it doesn’t completely dry out when you wear it. After washing it off, my skin felt purified but still nourished, which is usually not my experience with clay masks.

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 essence mask

Eyenlip Moisture Essence Mask in Charcoal – Retail Value $2

Do I love this colorful floral packaging? You know it, but I also was impressed with the performance of this for the relatively low cost. The charcoal is designed to purify skin, but it was still nourishing, fit my face well, and didn’t leave a sticky residue when I was done wearing it.

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 foot

Eyenlip Baby Foot Peeling Mask – Retail Value $6

I love foot masks like these! I never get much peeling action, but with consistent use, I have definitely noticed that my feet have become more soft and smooth. I’m still on the hunt for the foot mask that will really make the dead skin peel off, but I’ll use these in the meantime to help keep my feet soft.

Pink Seoul Plus July 2019 duft

Duft & Doft Nourishing Lip Cream in Stockholm Rose – Retail Value $15

This lip cream is made with both beeswax and Vitamin E to nourish dry lips, and shade Stockholm Rose adds a light wash of berry color to my lips. I would never pay retail value for this, but it’s a decent bonus item in this box.

The Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite Plus box from PinkSeoul. I thought there were multiple instances where I could have gotten products better suited to my sensitive skin, and the cleansing gel just did not perform well for me. I do appreciate that this box included an entire skincare routine- all you need is a moisturizer and SPF to finish things off, and that’s something not a lot of boxes currently offer. Value-wise, I calculated a total value of $108, which I think is pretty great and is definitely on the higher end of values I have seen from this box.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The July/August box is currently sold out, but you can sign up for the September/October box here.

Value Breakdown: At $49.95 for this box and a total value of $108, here is what you are approximately paying per item:

  • Snail Ampoule: $13.42

  1. I had issues with foot peels until I started leaving them on for way longer than it tells you to – like 2 1/2 or 3 hours instead of 90 minutes. Try that.

  2. I used to sub to this box -!: always feel so nostalgic whenever I see reviews for it. I always got such great skincare products out of this sub!

  3. Psychology has an absolutely awesome foot peel if you ever get the chance to try. It begins about 4days later and has alllll the action!

    • *ugh PATCHOLOGY! 🤣🤣

  4. This looks like it was a bit of a takeover box from the brand Eyenlip. I think that’s the first time I’ve seen Pink Seoul do something like this, and I think that would be interesting if they did this every two or three boxes to expose subscribers to a basic skincare routine using products from the same brand…. especially a brand that not’s common in sub boxes.

    • Jessica, I also meant to say that the cleansing gel/oil probably wasn’t meant to take makeup off. Not all cleansing oils are meant to be used as makeup removers, so I’m wondering if that’s the case with this one, and that’s why it didn’t do so well at taking off the makeup. Maybe it could be used as a nice moisturizing 2nd cleanse? 🙂
