Beauteque Box Monthly Subscription : A Review

Beauteque Beauty Box
All six items from the August Beauteque box

It’s that time of month where I have received and worked my way through the Beauteque monthly subscription box. This month’s has a Kawaii theme and as you can imagine everything has a cute, pretty packaging but do they work?

Milatte Fashiony Fruit Soothing Gel ($14.99/£11.40)

One of my favourite products in this months box. I like that they used a soothing gel rather then a cream as it absorbs into the skin so quickly it is so much less hassle.

The gel itself is a transparent red and is meant to be water melon scented although this is rather faint. I enjoyed using as it glides on easily, is absorbed quickly and leave your skin feeling very refreshed. It has a cooling/ soothing effect on the skin which is very nice. I would imagine this would be great on sunburn as it really does settle the skin of any irritations. After use my skin feels softer and fully moisturised.

The bottle is 200g (full sized) and is going to last for ages. The soothing gel is perfect for using post shower as a quick way to put moisture back into the skin and feel soothed and refreshed without waiting ages for a product to dry down.

Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk ($10/£7.60)

One of the “cult – favourites” if your a fan of Tony Moly, this hand milk has the cutest packaging ever (my kids love it). When first applied the scent of banana is quite strong but this does ease once the product starts to dry.

Not one of my preferred hand milks as I do like to use a thick cream and this formula is a lot less intense. The cream melts into the hands quickly without leaving a sticky residue and is also non greasy so you can use your hands again quickly after use.

Due to the drop in temperature and the sharp breezes my hand quickly become chapped and dry at this time of year and I don’t feel this made an major differences or changes to my skin. I will be sticking to my thicker based cream for hand care.

CC Mint Coin Tissue ($4.99/£3.79

Such a great idea and ideal for travelling or just to keep in your handbag for on the go. The plastic tube contains seven soft fabric tissues that unfold when you add a few drops of water.

Once expanded I was surprised buy the size and quality of the tissue, it is a lot less brittle then I thought it would be and is actually quite tough. They can be used for make up removal or just general washing of the body (much like a wet wipe) and then disposed of.

Each coin is engraved with the word ‘coin’ on one side and ‘made in Korea’ on the other which I though was a nice little touch to the detailing.

When I first saw these had been included in the monthly box I was a little underwhelmed but they have come in so handy and I like how easy the are to carry around without taking up much space in your bag.

The Saem Saemmul Single Blusher ($6.99/£5.32)

The coral coloured blush is nice and a colour that I would normally use. I always find it really difficult to give opinions on a blush as I find as long as it does what it’s meant to there is not much else to say.

The packaging is pretty basic and not something that is going to wow but the formula is soft and easy to use without there being much fall out. As far as blushes go it works well.

For the price The Saem single blush is 0.80 ounces in size which is reasonable but there are others available for the same quality and less of the price from high street brands such as Make up Revolution.

Mermaid Makeup Brush ($12.99/£9.88

Another super cute looking item. This make up brush is one of the softest I own, I really really like it. The bristles have been very nicely packed together so the brush is not too dense and has great movement. I like the tapered shape and for a synthetic brush it is good quality with no fraying or loose hairs.

The handle is plastic but still has a bit of weight to it for a better grasp. Due to the Mermaid shape this does take up a bit of room in a brushes bag or holder. Although due to the shape and look of the brush I will be putting mine on display at my vanity anyway.

JM Solution Marine Luminous Pearl Deep Moisture Mask ($5/£3.80

If you have read my Beauteque reviews before you would know this is my favourite item in each box. Since getting my first one four months ago a three step mask has now become “my thing”.

The first step of this particular one is the marine water full essence which you apply before the sheet.  The formula provides the skin with a boost in hydration and contains hyaluronic acids which is always good. The sachet is 1.5ml in size which is more then enough to cover your whole face before applying the sheet.

After application of the sheet mask and the 15-20 minutes wait step three contains a marine all face and eye cream that can be applied all over the face and neck but also to the more sensitive eye are. Again this is 1.5ml so you will be able to cover both your face and neck generously. This does take quite a few minutes to sink into the skin (about half an hour) but once it became completely dry I was so pleased with how my skin looked and felt. I have never had it feeling so plumped and hydrated, It looked so supple and glowy. The hyaluronic acid really helped to replenish and revitalise my skin so it appears smoother and more youthful. I will be purchasing this particular mask again.

Have you seen anything available in this box that you have taken a liking to? Have you used any of the products mentioned before and have a different view? I’d love to know your opinions and view point. Comment down below and we can start discussing.

Next post will be available Friday.

  1. The coin tissues are a fab idea, I hope you can find refills somewhere! The 3 step mask sounds exactly what my skin needs right, it’s great that it delivered real results quickly.

    1. The coin tissues have become such a good addition to my handbag must haves. After getting the Beauteque box and using my first three step mask 4 months ago I find it hard to go back to just a sheet mask. The skin just feels so hydrated and once dried soft and healthy x x
