First Impressions


Right off the bat, the PinkSeoul Plus Box charmed me with its adorable packaging. Unwrapping it felt like peeling back the layers of a fun mystery. The attention to detail in the presentation was impressive, and while I usually enjoy the product sheet, the convenience of an email instead is still a thoughtful touch. It's these little things that make unboxing a special experience.

What's Inside

Frudia Pore Peeling Big Pads, 2pc - Retail Value $1.50ea

Let's start with these peeling pads. They're a godsend for deep exfoliation, not just for your face but also for knees, elbows, and ankles – really, any area craving that smooth touch. Their large size and effective formula make them a staple in my skincare regime. And while I know not everyone is a fan of fragrance, I have to say I enjoyed the fruity scent!

JMsolution Mask Care No.1, 1pc - Retail Value $3

This isn't just another pretty face mask. Packed with skin-loving ingredients like retinol and vitamin C, it works wonders in brightening and revitalizing the skin. Super lightweight and comfortable, they adhere perfectly, contouring to every facial feature. I kept the package nearby to keep patting the remainder of the essence.

JMsolution Placen Collagen Mask, 1pc - Retail Value $3

I must admit, the pig illustration on the packaging gave me a moment's pause. Still, this sheet mask is made with pure hydrolyzed collagen. Designed for ultra-dry skin, this is a hydrating and firmness powerhouse. You still have the same soft-feeling sheet, so this becomes an in-house spa experience. I'd get the 10-pack of this one!

Scinic The Simple Mild Foam Cleanser, 120ml - Retail Value $17.50

I always have two cleansers on rotation: a gentle one and an exfoliating one. Fragrance-free and wonderfully uncomplicated, this one is a breath of fresh air in my routine. Its gentle foam removes impurities while being kind to the skin, proving that the simplest things can sometimes bring the most satisfaction.

Miguhara Anti-Wrinkle Perfect Ampoule, 20ml - Retail Value $21.40

This is such a nice ampoule to have in your routine. Unlike other ones with ingredients like retinoids and acids, this one combines rose water and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and improve the appearance of wrinkles. It glides onto the skin without any heaviness, allowing me to layer on other products effortlessly while it works its magic.

Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2x, 30g - Retail Value $24


This black sugar scrub is temptation in a jar – its texture and scent are so delicious, it's hard to resist the urge to taste it! I think I've purchased this scrub around five times already. While you can certainly use this for a quick exfoliation all over, I love to use this ultra-fine scrub for your lips…honestly, you'll never have softer lips in your life!

Missha Time Revolution The First Essence 5x, 150ml - Retail Value $38

With 97% cica yeast ferment, this essence is a K-beauty staple. This essence is your go-to for moisture, skin tone, texture, smoothness, hyperpigmentation, and protection. It absorbs into my skin within seconds, allowing for multiple layers without any tackiness or oiliness. And I love that the bottle has space to write when you first opened it, keeping tabs on preventing the use of expired products!

Heimish Hydrogel Eye Patch, 60pcs - Retail Value $19


Last but not least, these Heimish eye patches were a wonderful addition. Their rose pink color and subtle sparkle add a touch of fun to my skincare routine. I appreciate that these are not slippery like other patches, so you can leave them on for the 20-30 minutes they suggest without worrying about them falling off. And I don't know if it's the sparkles in them or what, but my undereye area was seriously brighter when I took them off!

Pro Tip: Eye patches aren't exclusive to your under-eye area. You can get the same benefits of these patches on other areas of your face, like around your smile lines!

Was This Box Worth It?

This PinkSeoul Plus Box truly impressed me. It's an amazing deal, not just in terms of value but also in its careful curation. The box masterfully focuses on hydration and exfoliation – two holy-grail elements in achieving the coveted glass skin effect.

I was particularly thrilled with the inclusion of the ampoule and essence. These aren't just add-ons; they're fundamental to any K-beauty regimen. The Miguhara Anti-Wrinkle Perfect Ampoule and Missha Time Revolution The First Essence are perfect examples of products that elevate your skincare game. Their integration into this box demonstrates PinkSeoul's commitment to delivering a holistic and authentic K-beauty experience.

In summary, this box is a well-rounded introduction to anyone looking to dive into K-beauty or expand their existing routine.

The black sugar scrub looks like an exact knock off of the brand fresh and their black sugar line. From the color of the packaging all the way down to the font. I honestly hate when brands will completely copy another’s products and pass it off as their own.
