Beauteque Mask Maven April 2017 Review

Purchased

Yes, I know it’s July. Shut up.

Worth noting, Beauteque had some changes to their shipping starting in in April, but they did at least notify their customers via email and gave us a 15% discount on the next billing to make up for it. I got my April bag in May and bumped up my masking routine a bit to every other day once I got my masks so that I could use them all up before my May bag came in, only to find out that this was the new norm. Beauteque now ships out on the last day of the month, so you’ll get that month’s bag in the following month. Stupid, I know, but at least they’re still fairly reliable when it comes to getting masks to my mailbox. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven April 2017 Review”

First Impression: Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream

Promotional Sample

20170711_150136.jpg

I know I’ve got a mess of other reviews to post, but I do want to get to this one first because it’s my first true promotional sample in a while, and I wanted to get on this as quickly as possible. Please note, while I like to test things for a full 2-4 weeks before reviewing, I’ve not had the opportunity to give this particular product that kind of mileage, so this is only a first impression. I’ll definitely write up an update on a later date giving my thoughts after having used this for at least a month. Please note that while Benton did send me this sample free of charge in exchange for my review, all thoughts expressed here are purely my own.

According to the information Benton sent, they are a Korean company that “is inspired by and named after the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (that movie where Brad Pitt ages backwards). They’re purpose is “to restore skin back to its original, healthy condition with healthy recipes, rather than to give temporary effects with harmful ingredients. Also, Benton presents freshly made products by sticking to small batch production.” Continue reading “First Impression: Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream”

Random Monday thoughts…

I only recently realized I have a digestive intolerance to eggs. There’s nothing I’ve found so far to help with it aside from just avoiding eggs, and this breaks my heart. I love eggs. Every Christmas, I love to make eggs Benedict. Hard boiled eggs are one of my favorite go-to grab-and-go proteins. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to bother me when I eat baked goods or pasta, which contain eggs. I’m guessing this has something to do with the way the proteins are broken down during the cooking process. (Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, so I have no clue.)

Beauteque Mask Maven March 2017 Review

Purchased

I really feel like I’m back in the swing of things with Beauteque Mask Maven every month. (I’m really wanting to try out their Beauty Box as well, but I still have quite a stockpile.) I love that I can get a fun curation of masks every month, many of which I might not have even heard of or thought to try, and it tends to cost me roughly $2/mask (about what I’d normally pay anyway) while also being completely skippable from month to month if I get a little backed up.

Mask Maven would probably be my second favorite subscription service right now– right behind Japan Crate, but that’s food, so it doesn’t count. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven March 2017 Review”
