Orgaid is a new organic beauty company and their very first product is a sheet mask. They are founded in Illinois, United States taking an Eastern beauty product and making it their own. Its founder, Dr. Ian Baek, developed the first “Made in USA” sheet mask and for those who requested a pre-production sample last month, we received it to try earlier this week. Sheet masks have long been in the market in Asia and there are many different kinds and price points so how did this stand up to sheet masks made in Asia?
EDIT 10/17/2015: Orgaid has seen reviews of the pre-production sample and noticed how the post office has damaged all their samples as other reviewers have also noted the poor fit and cut of their masks. I was sent another sample in a sturdy cardboard box and have edited my review to reflect the uncompromised mask! Click to read more!
It’s the end of the road with my Beauteque Mask Maven subscription. August is my 6th and last bag as I’ve canceled this service due to lack of interesting masks and well, sheet mask overload in my apartment. This month’s theme is Acne and Pores where the sheet masks and packs were selected around targeting the concerns for troubled and oily skin. Case in point, I don’t have acne-prone skin so subscribing to these services will always have a risk that the products might not fit your needs. These days, I only like a select few items whenever I order a mystery box/package so I did myself a favor and stopped buying anything cold turkey (and you can see my #ShopYourStash or #TeamNoBuy tag on Instagram to see what I’ve been amusing myself with lately).
Since this is my last bag, I got my free $30 gift for being an early subscriber. I signed up in March at the start of the launch and they offered a higher incentive the longer you subscribed (it was a $60 gift set with your 1 year subscription). I also get a free mask for each month and I’ll get into the details later in the post.

I’m closing out my reviews on the Serendibeauty brand from Cupidrop today! Cupidrop asked me to review something from their online shop and I had to freedom to choose something that interested me. I chose two things from their Serendibeauty line because it offered two unique products that haven’t flooded the kbeauty market yet, the O2 Bubble Cleansing Pack and the Sparkling CO2 Mask Packs (carboxy masks).
I already reviewed the Serendibeauty O2 Bubble Cleansing Pack which uses the science behind fancy oxygen facials and you can read about it in that post.
Serendibeauty is a brand that offers spa salon techniques at home and this review will feature their Sparkling CO2 Mask Packs that mimic the carboxy therapy services offered at facial spas. This is a great way to #upgrade your sheet masking game! Click to read more about the Sparkling CO2 (Carboxy) Masks View Post
Some of you might have heard about O2 bubble packs and cleansers before but for those of you who haven’t I have one to review today! Cupidrop asked me to review something from their online shop and I had to freedom to choose something that interested me. I don’t like reviewing something that’s already been reviewed a million times on the web (unless I feel that I can add more to the reviews). I looked on their online shop and I was so HAPPY to see that Cupidrop offered more obscure brands, even brands I’ve never heard of before like Kicho and Hidemond. This is already looking great!
“Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.” Packaging trying to be poetic. Did you just call me ugly?
I chose two things from their Serendibeauty line because it offered two unique products that haven’t flooded the kbeauty market yet, The O2 Bubble Cleansing Pack and the Sparkling CO2 Mask Packs (carboxy masks). I’ll review the Sparkling CO2 Mask Packs at a later date (can’t wait)! The O2 Bubble Cleansing Pack will actually bubble up on contact with dry skin, delivering much needed oxygen to your skin for turnover improvement.

I know I’m late with it. it’s August and I’m unmasking the July bag now but if you’ve read my posts before, they are detailed and take some time to edit photos and write! Please give me a birthday pass and excuse the lateness! If you’ve already seen the spoilers on Instagram then you’ll know that this month’s bag was da bomb dot com!
I wasn’t too impressed with Beauteque’s Mask Maven subscription because as a more advanced ABer (Asian Beauty user) the selection has been ho-hum and it was clear where they cut corners on some selections. The June Unboxing showed some indications that they were listening to customer feedback and made subscription improvements already. This month’s bag was even better (but there was one small snag in my order).
