PinkSeoul Mask Box Masks
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.
We also received a sample as an extra bonus.
Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask, 4.23 oz – Retail Value $10.50
I like this brand, and they’re a bit more mainstream than other K-Beauty brands (you can find Skinfood at Ulta!). I don’t reach for pore masks often because of my skin type, but sometimes I just crave a clay mask. Along with egg whites, this has kaolin and bentonite clay. I was happy that this didn’t fully harden the way some other clay masks do, and it didn’t leave my skin feeling like I had just stripped it of its moisture, either.
Petitfee Agave Cooling Hydrogel Face Mask - Estimated Value $3.58 (Buy 5 for $17.90)
Any mask that is labeled as “cooling” or a “hydrogel” is going to be the one I want to try first, and this did not disappoint. Along with being blue (aka FUN), this was like a cold drink of water for my face that felt absolutely lovely. Along with agave, this mask also features seaweed, blueberry extract, and caffeine.
Petitfee Gold & Snail Mask Pack - Estimated Value $4.80 (Buy 5 for $24)
This features the star ingredient snail extract along with allantoin, glycolic acid, collagen, and gold. I believe it’s settled that gold doesn’t do much other than make the product feel fancier, but I liked the pretty shimmery hydrogel material of this mask and it was cooling to my face.
JM Solution Water Luminous SOS Ringer Amino Mask - Retail Value $3.99
I really like the JM Solution masks I have tried, but I don't love the novelty of "popping" the bottom pouch to release serum to saturate the mask- I find that usually when I have to do that the sheet mask isn't as saturated in serum the way I prefer it. That aside, my skin really liked this mask. When I took it off my skin had a noticeable dewy glow, but my face didn't feel sticky.
SNP Per F:t Bio-Cell Mask in Double Soothing - Estimated Value $3.60 (Buy a pack of 5 for $18)
SNP Per F:t Bio-Cell Mask in Double Purifying - Estimated Value $3.60 (Buy a pack of 5 for $18)
I loved these masks- they feature a super-thin bio-cellulose material (my favorite mask material after hydrogel) that was actually a bit difficult to see through the mesh backing, but that meant that these masks fit my face incredibly well. Both versions feature coconut water, glycerin, and niacinamide, and the soothing version features tea tree extract and Centella while the purifying version has black rose and broccoli extract.
Son & Park Clean Beauty Full Mask - Estimated Value $3.25 (Buy 4 for $13)
This isn't my first Son & Park mask, and while it isn't an all-time favorite I am happy to use one again. These are meant to be worn for a shorter time than your typical sheet mask (about five minutes), and I found the mask itself to be on the small side- it didn't reach fully to my jawline or the top of my forehead, but after further reading, I think that is a feature that was intentional (perhaps so you can do your hair to get ready while you mask?). This mask features hyaluronic acid and flower extracts, and my skin had no complaints when I was done wearing this.
Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Mask in Cherry Blossom – Retail Value $1.30
These masks really are super thin, which makes them great for hugging the curves of your face for a close fit. I appreciate the performance considering how affordable they are, and my skin soaked up all of the moisture this mask provided.
Mediheal Warming Eye Mask – Listed Value $3 (found from a Korea-based seller for $2.36)
This is a warming mask designed to soothe tired eyes, and it actually covers all of your eyes so you’re forced to put the screens away and enjoy the gentle warming sensation cocooning your entire eye area (I especially loved the way this felt on my eyelids). This has a soft lavender scent that I enjoyed, but if you want to try this sans the scent they also make an unfragranced version! I have received these before, and after using one once I immediately went online to order another 12- I plan on using these both when I’m stressed but also as a secret weapon if I’m having difficulty falling asleep.
Seantree Radiance Snail Peeling Pad - Estimated Value $1.20 (Buy 10 for $12)
I am pretty hesitant when I see any product labeled as a "peeling pad" because oftentimes alcohol is a top ingredient, and that is something I try to avoid with my sensitive skin. This does indeed contain alcohol, along with fruit enzymes, snail, milk protein, and aloe. Remember the days of traveling? This would be a great option for exfoliating on the go without having the weight or bulkiness of a full-size product.
Tony Moly Pearl Pureness 100 Mask - Retail Value $2 (on sale for $1), Listed Value $4
These masks are made with 100% cotton that hasn't been bleached, so it doesn't have the perfectly even color you're used to seeing with sheet masks. This still worked well at giving my skin a boost of moisture, and while the fit wasn't perfect it was more than adequate.
The Verdict: I genuinely enjoy receiving a box of sheet masks every month, and that is true now more than ever considering the severe reduction in available entertainment (I did a wash-off mask, modeling mask, sheet mask routine the other day and then followed up with eye gels I had been keeping in my fridge, and my skin was absolutely glowing). I enjoyed that this box featured typical masks, a warming eye mask, biocellulose masks, and hydrogel masks- it really was like a buffet of sheet masks depending on what I wanted, and overall I am incredibly pleased with this month's box. Value-wise, this box adds up to $40.82, which is on the lower end of what I normally see from this box.
