PinkSeoul Mask Box Review
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 for the box.
Neogen Dermology Probiotics Relief Mask – Retail Value $4.50
I am down to try anything with probiotics in it because my skin absolutely loves them. This mask had a creamy essence and a slight perfume-y fruity scent that faded pretty quickly. The mask itself wasn’t the best fitting, but it still did a good job of giving my skin a boost of nutrition and moisture.
SNP Diamond Water Sleeping Pack, 3 ct – Listed Value $4.50
This sleeping mask had a thick texture that was fun and reminded me of Jell-O, but that thick texture took a while to absorb into my skin and left my face feeling sticky. I followed it up with a facial oil to ensure my skin got the benefits of the hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and diamond powder which took care of the sticky feeling, and my skin was happy enough with it when I woke up the next morning.
SNP Black Pearl Ampoule Sheet Mask – Retail Value $3
The fabric of this mask was a little thick, but ultimately it fit my face okay. Along with pear extract and charcoal powder this mask also has niacinamide and soybean extract. I used this when I noticed some new acne forming along my jaw, and I thought this helped to soothe my skin and add hydration without being too heavy.
Ample:N Peptide Ampoule 2-Step Mask – Retail Value $4
The first step of this mask is applying the ampoule to clean skin before placing the sheet mask on top. I wasn’t impressed with the rubbing alcohol scent of the ampoule, but when I was done masking my face was left really soft and moisturized. I ended falling asleep once I yanked this mask off my face, and when I woke up from my nap my skin felt really nice even though I didn’t follow it up with any other products.
Ample:N VC 2-Step Oxygen Peel – Retail Value $4
This exfoliating mask was a bit strong for my skin, but it was a fun process. The first step is to apply a scrub all over your face and then follow up with the step two liquid that causes bubbles to form. I left this on for the shorter side of the recommended 1-2 minutes, and I followed up with the TONYMOLY Centella mask that also came in this kit to calm and nourish my skin once the peel was rinsed away.
Tosowoong Aloe Mask – Retail Value $2
This was a basic mask made with aloe, niacinamide, and adenosine, and the skin-soothing properties of the ingredients were exactly what my skin needed. I left this on for longer than the 20 minutes recommended because I was a happy resting bug cocooned in a blanket, and my skin enjoyed every minute.
TONYMOLY Master Lab Snail Mucin Mask – Retail Value $4.50
TONYMOLY Master Lab Vitamin C Mask – Retail Value $4.50
TONYMOLY Master Lab Centella Asiatica Mask – Retail Value $4.50
I don’t love that these masks all contain alcohol, but the rest of the ingredients were good enough that my skin really enjoyed these masks. The material of the mask itself is thin and fit my face really well, and they didn’t leave any tacky residue behind.
Hyggee Active Red Flower Mask – Retail Value $4
I’m not sure if the sheet mask itself is a light pink or if that’s the creamy essence the mask is saturated in, but this is a deeply nourishing mask that my skin was craving after I did a detox face mask. This contains amino acids, adenosine, niacinamide, and plum blossom extract. This is a very wet mask that I know some people don’t love (there was a bit of dripping down my neck), but it felt like a hug to my face that left it calm and happy.
Missha All-Around Sun Block Essence, 50 mL – Retail Value $14
This is a very nourishing sunscreen that is well-suited to my skin’s profile- those with oilier skin may not need a moisturizer and this sunscreen, but for my dry skin the extra moisture was just fine. This sunscreen absorbed into my face well and didn’t leave a white cast, and I appreciate the good performance for how affordable it is.
The Verdict: It takes me a while to go through all ten masks sent each month, but this is still a box I look forward to. I’ve found that I’m dealing with more sensitivity and acne on my face around where my (other) face mask goes, so having a stash of sheet masks delivered monthly is helping me to soothe my stressed skin. My favorites from this month’s box were definitely the Neogen and Hyggee masks, but none of the items sent this month felt like they were misses. Value-wise, this box adds up to $53.50, which is a value I am happy with, considering the $29.95 cost of the box.
