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 that arrives with the box.
SkinRX Lab Madecera Mask in Re-Born – Retail Value $2.50
SkinRX Lab Madecera Mask in Re-Turn– Retail Value $2.50
I am a big fan of the Madecera line from SkinRX, so these sheet masks were a treat. The material of the sheet mask was papery thin, and they hugged the curves of my face well. Both sheet masks had soothing ingredients that I like to look for to keep my dry skin happy, especially with the stress of the holiday season and the cooler temperatures.
Koelf Gold Royal Jelly Hydrogel Mask – Listed Value $4 (buy a pack of 5 for $19)
I actually own a jar of the Gold & Snail Eye hydrogel eye masks from this brand, so I was interested in trying the sheet mask version. As a general rule, I haven’t met a hydrogel mask I haven’t liked. If you don’t like how sheet masks can sometimes be messy due to the excess serum, this mask could be for you. It isn’t very “wet,” and it didn’t do much for my skin other than provide a nice cooling sensation.
VT Super Hyalon Eye Patch – Retail Value $3 (buy a pack of 5 for $15, on sale for $10.50)
I loved this blue eye mask; wearing it made me feel like a superhero, which was quite delightful. The mask stayed in place without sliding around, and it was very, very cooling- which felt great on my tired eyes!
Mamonde Flower Lab Evening Primrose Essence Nourishing Mask – Retail Value $3
I love these Mamonde masks – not only are they super nourishing to my skin, but they also leave me glowing no matter what flower ingredient is featured. Plus, you can find them at your local Ulta; I love when affordable sheet masks are readily available.
Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask – Retail Value $4
The Papa Recipe honey masks are a joy for my skin and I am always happy to receive more in subscription boxes. During the year 2020, I went through a ten-pack box of sheet masks from this line that I purchased myself, even though I definitely didn’t need more sheet masks. If you like honey as an ingredient for your skin and you enjoy sheet masks, this product line is for you.
Innisfree Jeju Root Potato Energy Mask – Retail Value $2
Innisfree is a well-known sheet mask brand, and I like the ingredients in this particular line more than I do in the My Real Squeeze line (which is 20 cents cheaper). Did you know potatoes can help to hydrate and soothe your skin? I didn’t either, but my dry skin did enjoy this mask. Along with potato pulp extract, this also has Centella, allantoin, peony, and hyaluronic acid. A quick scan of the ingredients list also shows that this mask is alcohol-free, which is something I always prefer.
Frudia My Orchard Coconut Mask – Listed Value $3
This mask is made with coconut water, so it was a hydrating boost for my skin. It was a bit plain as far as sheet masks go, but it was still enjoyable.
The Saem Natural Mask in Lemon – Retail Value $3
The Saem Natural Mask in Rice – Retail Value $3
I don’t love these sheet masks, there isn’t anything wrong with them, but they’re pretty basic. I’ve tried many of the variations because they’re a common sheet mask to include, and to me this and the Innisfree My Real Squeeze masks are starting to feel like the black eyeliner of sheet mask subscription boxes.
Tony Moly Wonder Ceramide Mochi Toner, 200 ml – Retail Value $12
I am STOKED that this toner was included, I have gone through a bottle before thanks to the Tony Moly Monthly Bundle that I reviewed for a while, and I love this stuff. If you’ve seen the hype of the Laneige Cream Skin toner, think of this as a more affordable alternative that gives your skin a dose of ceramides and moisture. A little bit of this goes a long way, and I am happy to have this back in my routine. My toner actually leaked during transit, but PinkSeoul was on it and immediately sent out a replacement as soon as we communicated the issue.
Pink Seoul Scrunchies, 2 ct – Retail Value $8 ($4 each)
In addition to the Tony Moly toner as an accessory item, we also received these scrunchies. They don’t snag my hair, and honestly, they have me feeling cute when I have my hair in a half-up/half-down style and the bow ribbons positioned just right.
The Verdict: It takes me a while to go through all of the sheet masks in this box, but I always enjoy them. This box had a mix of brands I really enjoy, like SkinRX, Papa Recipe, and Mamonde, and I enjoyed trying out the VT Cosmetics eye mask and the Frudia mask. The Tony Moly toner was a lovely surprise, too – the “accessory” item that comes in addition to the ten sheet masks can be just about anything, so receiving a toner that I have already tried and loved made me happy. Value-wise, this box adds up to $50, which is slightly on the lower end of what I have come to expect from this box.
