Today I have an interesting post about a beauty subscription bag that is a little different than the usual suspects. It is called Beauteque and is a monthly cosmetic subscription with a focus on Asian skincare and makeup. I was kindly gifted the May BB bag from the company and thought I'd share it with you.
Since the focus is on Asian products, a monthly bag like this allows you to try items you wouldn't normally find in the U.S or Europe. When I received the bag, it was carefully packaged in a cute cosmetic case that would be perfect to reuse for travel.
This month's BB bag contained 8 items including masks, a lash curler, lip balm, eyeliner, skin smoother and body mist.
Also included, thankfully, was an insert with a description and directions for each product included in the bag. This was especially useful since all the packaging had Asian labels.
The masks for this month came complete with a 3-step one-use system to cleanse, moisturize and treat the skin. This was a bit different for me since the masks I usually gravitate to leave a tight feeling on the skin once it has dried. This one, however, pretty much stays wet for the 15-20 minutes suggested. I did notice it absorbed a little into my skin by the end of the time and upon removal, my skin felt noticeably nourished.
Eyelash curlers are a beauty item that I want to love, except I don't have a pressing need for them. This one is beautiful though, coated in 24K gold! You fancy, huh!
The Bebe Mist in Sweet Peach has a soft, light fragrance that I quite enjoy, especially right out of the shower. The Moisture Essence also has a stronger scent and provides a watery, very light moisture to the skin.
Up next is the Pig-Nose Clear Blackhead Starter. I'm not so sure about this one since I didn't notice much of a difference. Similar to the masks included, it is a fairly watery gel that keeps its consistency during the entire application. Usually a blackhead treatment is grittier or dries hard to remove the blackheads but I didn't feel any effect with this.
The Vivid Tint Bar lip balm is moisturizing and comes in a pretty pink tube, though the color does not transfer to the lips.
Last, but not least is the Auto Eye-liner Pencil. This is by far the item in this BB bag that I will get the most use out of. It comes in Black and though it is not the most intense liner you will encounter, its great for everyday definition.
The Beauteque monthly BB bags are offered on a subscription basis and you can sign up for them here. Every month, they include 7-8 trial and full-sized products valued between $65-85 for a subscription cost from $24!
Overall, I liked trying out the new (to me) products in this bag. A subscription like this offers the opportunity to test out cool products I wouldn't find in stores near me. $24 is a bit higher than other similar subscription services I've tried but if you value trying something your girlfriends likely haven't heard of, it just might be worth it!
Thanks for reading!
