Patchology Shell Yeah Mystery Box September 2020 Review


This kit came with a Patchology-branded bag where you can store some of the sheet masks (or other skincare items!).


We also received a sample of their Lip Service treatment.


Aquaflash Daily Gel Moisturizer, 0.2 oz – Estimated Value $4.20 (Buy the 1.7 oz version for $35)

This is a lightweight moisturizer with a great ingredients list. This gel moisturizer is made with neem tree extract, hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, aloe vera, and fermented yeast. It sank into my skin quickly without leaving it sticky, and it layered well on top of my serums and under my sunscreen.

Flashpatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels, 3 ct – Retail Value $9 ($3 each)

These eye gels are packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients like caffeine, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, and Centella Asiatic (also known as Indian pennywort). You only need to wear these for five minutes to see results (hence the ~flash~ part of the flashpatch name), but I usually leave them on longer and enjoy the cooling sensation while I go about whatever nonsense I have on my agenda. 


Moodpatch Keep Smiling Lip Gels, 4 ct – Retail Value $12 ($3 each)

These came in my 24k Gold mystery box, but I’m always happy to have more. Here’s what I had to say about them in my previous review: 

I love the Moodpatch line from Patchology, and the aromatherapy properties of this mask are sweet violet and lavender while coconut extract hydrates your lips. These stay in place when I am chilling out on the couch, and the lavender and violet scent helps me relax. If you’re not a fan of scented products I would definitely skip these since they chill out in close proximity to your nose, but I really enjoy them.



Flashmasque Firm 5-Minute Sheet Mask, 4 ct – Retail Value $30 (Estimated. When I was looking these up the other day I saw them on the Patchology website, but now they are nowhere to be found)

I am a Patchology fiend so I was actually surprised to see a sheet mask I haven’t tried before from the brand. These have an extra bit of mask that wraps around your chin/neck area to add to the ~firming~, and I really enjoyed how hydrating it was. Star ingredients in this mask include peptides, red chokeberry, and soy protein. 

Verdict: I love Patchology, so I enjoyed this mystery box. If you’re new to the brand I think this is a good assortment, but if you purchased multiple mystery boxes you may be less than enthused about the repeats. I still think the value is there, but it will depend on your personal opinion on sheet masks. Value-wise, Patchology promised a $70 value and everything in the box added up to $55.20. That is more than a few dollars short, so I will be reaching out to Patchology to see what they say. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you order today? Yes, this is still available—and check out the other mystery boxes available here.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $30 with free shipping and I calculated a total value of $55.20. That means you’re paying approximately the following per item:

  • Aquaflash: $2.28
  • Flashpatch Eye: $4.89 ($1.63 each)
  • Moodpatch Lip: $6.52 ($1.63 each)
  • Flashmasque Firm: $17.39 ($4.35 each)

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. The bag is probably valued at $15. BAM! There’s the 70 bucks lol

  2. I wonder if they will tell you that the bag makes up the difference.

  3. Yikes that’s a big price discrepancy LOL. I think the bag that comes with it is cute though
