Mask Genie Weekend Pouch

I have been intrigued by Mask Genie‘s pouches for quite some time. They are always so well curated. So when I saw that there was a weekend pouch up for grabs, I decided to go for it. These are limited edition pouches that are available from time to time. Mask Genie also has monthly bags that you can order. This bag was 17$ USD or 21.77$ CAD. I purchased this back over the summer, and like a major slacker, I haven’t posted it yet. In fairness, I was in the process of moving when I got this, so that may excuse some delay?

Without further ado, let’s get to this!

In this pouch, I received 9 masks. Of these masks, I only recognized 2 of them. I like receiving different masks as it lets me explore. (And that’s why kbeauty is awesome.)

It’s Skin Magic Shaping V-Mask Sheet

I used this as part of my November mask destashing. This is a hydrogel/fabric combo mask. It is hydrogel on the inside and has fabric on the outside. It’s a mask that you put on your chin line. It is supposed to have firming and soothing effects. Personally, I just found it a little weird and a lot restrictive. It was very tight.  It contains caffeine, pumpkin extract, and cucumber.

If you’re interested, I found it here for 2000 KRW (~2$ USD).

Aritaum Morus Bark Fresh Essence Mask

I’ve never seen a mask made with tree bits before so this was a new experience for me. This was also a mask that it was really, really, really hard to find information online about. The most I could find out about this brand of mask is that they are available on Tester Korea for 1000 KRW.

BeauNa Orange Pore Tightening Sheet Mask

This mask contains orange extract, which is great for tightening up pores and reducing their appearance. It also contains mineral water and is 5 free (Paraben, mineral oil, artificial dyes, animal oil and triethanolamine free). The packaging also says that it contains pathenol (Vitamin B5) and allantoin to help keep skin soft and supple. Mask Genie actually reviewed this mask, which you can read here.

LoveMore Soy Milk Enzyme

I have heard so much about LoveMore masks. They seem to be a cult favorite if the internet is to be believed in this instance. Lovemore is a Japanese mask company. This mask contains soy (duh!) and natto, both to help with anti-aging. It also helps improve skin clarity and is deeply moisturizing.

Beautymate 3D Multiple Refining Smooth V Mask

Since I reviewed this in my mask destashing back in November, I have copied what I said there. This is a Taiwanese mask from the company beautymate. This is the 3D Multiple Refining Smooth V Mask. It’s made from porous pearl paper. It’s for firming, whitening,  refining, moisturizing and smoothing.  I actually assumed this was one of those chin mask things before I opened it based on the V mask deal. It’s actually a full face sheet mask. It has no real odor and makes my skin a little tingly. This is the first time I’ve tried a mask from this company, and so far I’m impressed.

Foodaholic Snail Mask

I’ve purchased this mask a few times off of TK. I think it’s a good bargain mask and I like putting snail goo products on my face. Snail goo as I like to call it, is great for improving elasticity and nourishing skin.

Sasatinnie Aloe and Olive Mask

This is  Sasatinnie brand mask that also was used up during my November mask purge. It’s a deep moist silky mask according to the package. It’s a mask designed to brighten, hydrate and nourish. There’s a slight olive oil like smell but it’s not off-putting or anything like that. After taking it off, my skin is so so soft… until it went fiery red. I had a wicked reaction to something in this mask. My face was bright red and warm to the touch and the only bit of relief I was able to get was when I slathered on cooling cucumber gel on it in a very thick layer, but even that heated up very quickly. For that reason, this mask is on my “no way in hell” list. It could be free and I wouldn’t touch it.

Holika Holika Pig Nose 3-Step

I enjoy these three step nose things. While I know that it’s not really attacking blackheads, it is removing sebaceous filaments in my nose. I like the process of all of these steps. It’s oddly relaxing. I usually buy one or two whenever I do a Kbeauty haul.

SU:M 37 Bubble De-Mask

This is an entirely new type of mask for me.  It’s a mask that you apply for 5-7 minutes before washing off with warm water. It apparently relaxes the skin and creates a smooth face.  It bubbles up on the face and sort of tickles. It’s a good novelty product, but I’d never purchase a full size. I’m simply too cheap to do so.

 

And there you have it! My loooong overdue Mask Genie post. I think that this is a great value and I discovered a few masks that were awesome. And one that sucked. (I’m looking at you Sasatinnie.)

Have you tried this bag out? These masks? Let me know!

Cheers,

Kristen
