PinkSeoul Mask Box Masks + Cleanser Review - November 2019
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 what your skin type is.
Here is the info sheet detailing the products included in this box.
9 Wishes Intense Hydrating Gold Foil Patch & Mask - Retail Value $5.50
This was a really fun mask! It has two gold foil patches in the shape of hearts, and then you layer a sheet mask on top. I found this nourishing and hydrating to my skin, and it just all around brought me joy.
Hyggee Relief Blue Flower Mask - Retail Value $4
This mask was saturated with a thick, milky serum with enough excess to rub into my neck and decolletage. This has soothing ingredients like aloe and allantoin, and it was cooling to my skin while I wore it and my face was calmer when I took it off.
DPC Help My Skin Is Too Oily Jelly Mask - Retail Value $5
This mask has a lot of skin-nourishing ingredients like chamomile and oatmeal extract, along with Madagascar mud and charcoal extract to help control excess oil. Even though my skin rarely gets oily, I still really enjoyed this thanks to the hydrogel material.
Missha Mascure PHA Sheet Mask - Retail Value $4
Missha Mascure Saline Water Sheet Mask - Retail Value $4
These masks didn't have the best fit for me- they were on the smaller side and didn't reach the sides of my face. I also wasn't a fan that these had a noticeable fragrance, but I did appreciate that these didn't leave a sticky finish. The PHA mask provides a gentle exfoliation, while the saline water is for soothing skin.
Haruharu Wonder Honey Green Reparative Sheet Mask - Retail Value $3
Haruharu Wonder Maqui Berry Antioxidant Sheet Mask - Retail Value $3
These sheet masks are made with non-chlorine bleached 100% cotton, and I really liked the ingredients list (especially for the price!). I wore one of these while I was dealing with an ear infection and a fever, and I found it to be especially cooling and pleasant.
Nature Republic Real Comforting Sheet Mask in Tea Tree - Retail Value $1.90
Nature Republic Real Comforting Sheet Mask in AHA/BHA - Retail Value $1.90
These are really good sheet masks for the price. I was happy with the amount of essence and the fit of the sheet masks themselves, and I hope I get to try the ceramide and madecassoside (two ingredients my skin loves!) versions in the future
Some By Mi Bubble Pouch - Retail Value $2
I had no idea what this was at first- it's a pouch you stick your bar of soap in to create an extra lather. I find it a bit unnecessary, but this may be something that is more exciting to others.
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.
The Verdict: PinkSeoul is a mask subscription I consistently rely on to provide a good assortment of sheet masks with a variety of textures and ingredients. Overall all of the masks were pleasant to use and value-wise, I calculated a total value of $46.30.
