Unboxing May 3b (Beauty Beyond Borders) Box  – Finally off the Wait List!

Alert: There is a new AB (Asian Beauty) Subscription Service on the rise! I’m a new subscriber to The 3b Box – 3b standing for Beauty Beyond Borders. You’ve probably arrived at my page some way, some how because you’re interested in learning more about Korean/Taiwanese/Japanese Beauty and there’s no better way to start diving in by SAMPLING to see what right for your skincare/makeup goals and needs.

3b is a monthly subscription priced at $12/month, shipping included! You get 4 – 5 DELUXE samples in each month with an info card that gives you tips on how to use your new goodies (previously there were some FULL-SIZE surprises!).

According to their website, samples will range from go-to fan favorites like Etude House, Skin Food, Tony Moly to high-end like SK-II, Kanebo, and Sulwhasoo. They even translate the descriptions of each product in order to remove the language barrier to make these great, innovative products more accessible to you – hence their company name, Beauty Beyond Borders.

Unboxing April Beauteque Mask Maven Bag – Overall Happy!

The second Mask Maven bag arrived early April but I didn’t get to “unbox” (unbag?) until now. There were lots of other reveals from bloggers but the unique thing is that we all can get different “flavors” of masks from the same series. This will be shorter than my last post, first impressions only.

First overall impression: I like this April bag a WHOLE lot better than their launch bag in March. It was so disappointing that their very first bag was half-full of lower quality masks that didn’t have a great ingredients list, i.e. their star ingredients listed at the very bottom of the list. This made me question my commitment to a 6-month subscription but the April bag is keeping me hopeful for May.

If you’re not familiar with Beauteque’s Mask Maven see my introductory post here. See their March Launch bag here. View Post

Unboxing March Beauteque Mask Maven Bag – Some Pleasant Surprises!

This is a late unboxing post for Beauteque’s Mask Maven bag but for reference sakes I will post it! This is the FIRST Mask Maven bag from Beauteque since they launched the new subscription in February 2015. I thought it was still important to include so that you can get some eye-candy while figuring out if this mask subscription will be right for you’re needs. Full reveal after the jump. View Post

New Mask Subscription Service – Beauteque Mask Maven

I subscribed to my first mask subscription service from Beauteque – Mask Maven!  (Pronounced “Byoo-tek”.)

What made me pull the trigger and commit to 6 months of service is that this is a mask-only type of subscription. It’s not only sheet masks for your face but some surprises will be for your hair, feet, hands and whatever other areas companies created masks for! Have you seen the crotch mask for your bikini zone from MemeBox? Yea, cool things like that hopefully.

I like this subscription because I don’t feel like I’m hoarding and letting good products like face creams or serums go bad since masks are one-time use and can last as long as 2-3 years since each one is individually sealed. It takes much longer to go through a bottle or jar of cream than it does for a sheet mask. Rip it open, treat yourself for a night and it’s done and served its purpose (well, hopefully)!  View Post
