This is a review of October’s box.  The above picture shows everything in this month’s box.

Saference Skin-Rx Pore Closing Mask (~$2) – This mask is not new to me.  It is a special line created by Ladykin.  It contains collagen for wrinkle care and red wine and pomegranate for pore care.  The mask came out of the packaging soaked with clear essence.  I was surprised that it was not a black mask.  The fit and attachment were really good.  After 20 minutes, my face felt hydrated and matte.  I think this is a nice basic mask for oily and combination skin types.

Secret Key Nature Recipe Mask – Honey (~$2) – TBH, Secret Key’s sheet masks have yet to impress me, although I love some of their skincare products.  I’ve tried a couple variants from this mask line but I don’t remember how I felt about them.  However, I was happy to receive the honey variant since honey is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare.  This mask contains honey extract for moisturizing, royal jelly extract for nourishing, and centella asiatica extract for elasticity.  It has a sweet honey scent.  The fit was a bit wide on my face.  The mask material is a little bit on the thicker side.  I had no essence leftover in the packaging.  I used this mask for 25 minutes.  My face felt moisturized and smooth with no tacky feeling.  I was surprised how good this mask was.

Tonymoly Pureness 100 Caviar Mask Sheet (~$2) – The Pureness 100 line is my favorite among Tonymoly’s mask lines.  Somehow, I was expecting this to be a black mask, but it’s actually a regular cotton mask.  This mask contains hyaluronic acid for hydration, propolis for immunity and anti-inflammatory benefits, marine collagen for anti-aging, and caviar for nutrition and hydration.  The mask came out of the packaging wet.  The essence has a light perfume-y scent.  Like all the Pureness 100 masks, this one has black dots and particles on the mask sheet.  The fit of the mask was very wide on the sides.  After 20 minutes, my skin felt moisturized, but I didn’t feel any other effects.

Kina Cosmetics Marine Complex Face Mask (~$2) – I think the capsules packaging is very interesting.  The mask contains laminaria japonica extract, algae extract, collagen, and scutellaria baicalensis extract for nourishing, soothing, and detoxifying.  The mask came out of the packaging soaked with unscented clear essence.  The mask material is very soft.  I had it on for 25 minutes.  My face felt hydrated, and there was no sticky residue left on my skin.  I think that this is an average hydrating mask.

Naisture 15 Minutes Mask Pack – Moisture Green Tea (~$1) – I have grown very fond of Naisture’s skincare products including masks.  This mask is not new to me.  It contains camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, collagen, sodium hyaluronate, and witch hazel extract for moisturizing and soothing.  I was surprised by the faint floral scent since I was expecting a more herbal scent from this.  The mask came out of the packaging soaked with clear essence.  The fit was pretty good except that the mouth hole was very small.  During my 25 minute masking session I experienced a cooling sensation.  After removing the mask, my face felt hydrated and refreshed.

Farmstay Visible Difference Mask Sheet (~$1.50) –  I think I’ve tried the green tea mask from the same line. This mask contains snail mucus extract for skin elasticity.  This mask came out of the packaging soaked with unscented essence.  The material is very soft.  It had a very nice attachment.  There was a lot of essence left over in the packaging.  After 20 minutes, my face felt nourished and moisturized.  There was a little bit of stickiness left on my skin.

Mijin Cosmetics Coenzyme Q10 Essence Mask (~$2) – I’ve tried one other mask from Mijin, also from Piibu Box.  This mask contains coenzyme Q10, vitamin E, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, and portulaca oleracea extract for elasticity and nourishment.  The mask came out of the packaging soaked with unscented creamy essence.  It had a very nice attachment.  I had it on for 20 minutes after which my face felt soft and moisturized without stickiness.  It was surprisingly a nice mask.

A’Pieu My Skin-fit Sheet Mask – Baobab (~$1) – The My Skin-fit Sheet Mask line is one of A’Pieu’s newer sheet mask lines.  I’ve only tried the lime version before.  The baobab mask contains baobab seed extract, licorice root extract, and ginger root extract for hydration.  It came out of the packaging soaked with clear essence.  There was no leftover essence in the packaging.  The essence has a light herbal scent.  It has extremely small holes.  I had it on for 15 minutes after which my face felt hydrated.  I didn’t notice any other effects.
