Beauteque Head to Toe "Fun in the Sun" Bag

Canada is really lacking in the K-Beauty subscriptions right now; Beauteque came along just at the right time (as Memebox said good-bye to us Canadians). Beauteque is an American company but they offer shipping to Canada at a reasonable rate! 

Beauteque does offer 2 monthly subscription services - BB Bag and Mask Maven (you can view my past reviews in those links). In addition to 2 subscriptions, and a shop with plenty of k-beauty goodies, the also curate monthly(ish) "Head to Toe" bags with different themes! 

I have never tried a Head to Toe bag, but I have been antsy for some new K-beauty goodies, so I opted to get the "Fun in the Sun" bag! Each Head to Toe bag is priced a little differently - this bag was $28 + $6.95 shipping to Canada.

It's Head to Toe Fun in the Sun, featuring six full-sized summer essentials!

Here is a look at what I received (it actually couldn't all fit in this bag):

Like the subscriptions, Beauteque includes a product card with the Head to Toe bag:




I think this bag has a great combination of products - here is a closer look at all the goodies inside:

Ostia Cucumber Soothing Gel ~ $15.50. Soothe skin with this rich cucumber gel. It will offer a cooling and soothing relief.

I'm not going to lie - I was pretty excited to see this product! I love K-beauty packaging and a phallic shaped lotion is just the icing on the cake! (My fiance saw this and commented that it was a good thing the lotion didn't come out the top - I let him know I will be bringing this out with us just to make him feel uncomfortable!) This is hilarious - plus it actually smells delicious and the reviews look good. I heard a tip that if you put this in the fridge prior to use, it is amazing! 

TonyMoly Mini Berry Lip Balm in "Blueberry" ~ $10.00. Flavoured lip balm protects lips with SPF 15. Offers a pleasant flavour as well. 

TonyMoly is awesome when it comes to packaging - who doesn't want to use a blueberry shaped lipbalm?! I love it! And it smells delicious! 



Cellabon RX Naturatox 3-in-1 UV Essence ~ $35.00. This 3-in-1 miracle product offers protection from UV rays, moisturizing properties, and acts as a base to set your makeup all day. Willow Bark extract and Papaya Fruit extract increases cell turnover  to help effectively detoxify the pores, and improve skin texture as it gently sweeps away dead skin cells and impurities that can dull the complexion. 

This is a 3 in 1 product: essence, sunblock, and makeup base. I normally don't like 3 in 1 type products, but this actually sounds REALLY great for the summer!! It is hard to layer a lot on your face in the summer, so this eliminates a few steps. I wore this the other day to an outdoor wedding and it was awesome!! I will use it for my wedding too, and then save the rest for my honeymoon - I will need it! 



My Beauty Diary: Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Sheet Mask ~ $1.89. A tried and tested moisturizer, hyaluronic acid is treated to a hydrolysis process that reduces the size of its elements for even faster and deeper absorption by the skin's layers. Microcirculation and purification processes maximize skin's moisture content while forming a protective moisture shield at the same time to keep skin optimally hydrated and wonderfully soft longer.

I don't mind this brand of masks, but I do find that they fit very big! I will still use this though! 

Real Nature Cucumber Mask Sheet ~ $1.50. Cucumber extracts moisturize and make soft skin.

I like Real Nature masks and I like cucumber masks so I am looking forward to using this! 


Palis Facial Oil Blotting Paper ~ $5.00. Soak up oil from skin without disturbing makeup or sunblock. Reduce shine and feel refreshed. 

Summer is the only time I really need blotting papers so it is nice to have an extra set! 

It's Skin: Babyface Waterproof Eyeliner - #1 True Black ~ $11.00. Define eyes and defy sweat and water with this waterproof eyeliner. Product will last throughout your day. 

I love waterproof eyeliners (the Stila one is my holy grail). I use them all the time because of sweat and water in the summertime! This eyeliner is kind of a mix between a liquid and gel eyeliner, so I am excited to try this!

This Head to Toe bag came with a value of $79.89, and I paid $28 plus shipping. I thought it had a really great mix of products and I will use everything! It is nice to have a different option then the subscriptions - I am sure it is something I will treat myself to every one in a while! 

Have you tried a Beauteque Head to Toe bag before? What do you think of the Fun in the Sun bag?

  1. I think I'll have to try this bag out soon! I really miss these types of products ever since Memebox left. I can't get over the shape of that Cucumber Soothing Gel! Too funny.
