August 2015 Beauteque Mask Maven - Mask Subscription Review

Beauteque is an American company that focuses on creating a beauty bag subscription featuring Asian Beauty products. Beauteque launched their original "BB Bag" Subscription in January of this year and their "Mask Maven" was just launched a couple months later in March.

The Mask Maven subscription is described as:

"The Mask Maven is a luxurious subscription service offering a lovely assortment of masks each month to keep your skin smooth, soft, and spectacular. 
You will receive all kinds of masks including face sheet masks, hand and feet masks, hair masks, wash off masks, and more."

Beauteque Mask Maven is $15 monthly - if you sign up for a longer subscription, you can save a little money: $14 per month if you sign up for 6 months, or $13 per month if you sign up for 12 months. Shipping per month is $3.95 for the U.S., $5.95 to Canada, and $8.95 to Europe. Each month you can expect to receive 9-11 masks of all varieties.

*So I initially signed up for 3 months, which was March-May and the subscription was a little disorganized and had too many repeat items. I actually forgot to cancel my sub. For June-Aug and I am happy I stuck around, because Mask Maven stepped it up with some much needed improvements last month - same masks for all subscribers (with only a few that could be different types), more brand variety, and a product card! Again, great improvements*

Here is a look at the August 2015 Mask Maven:

Looks like a great mix of masks! 

Here is a closer look at all the masks inside:

Purederm Deep Cleansing Peeling Gel ~ $3 for 2 packets. Deeply cleansing pores, gently exfoliating, removing dead skin cells and refining skin surface. Skin is healthy looking and refreshed.

I like using peels, so I will make use of these for sure! These are quite small samples, so I am happy they included 2! 

Purederm Strawberry Yogurt Pack ~ $3.25 for 10 ml. A wash-off type massage mask which contains Strawberry Extract, Yogurt Extract, Collagen and Vitamin E. Yogurt Extract :  skin feels de-stressed and looks soft & perfectly smooth. Strawberry Extract : purifying & preventing pimples.

This is a wash off type mask and I have really liked the similar strawberry masks, so I am excited to try this!

My Beauty Diary Citrus Firming Aroma Mask ~ $1.45. Functions: Firming, Rejuvenating with oil control.

Mask Maven often contains a My Beauty Diary mask, and I find the fit of them really terrible - they are way too big for my face. 

Hanaka Botanic Treatment Reviving Mask (Marigold + Vitamin A) ~ $2.38 ($11.90 for 5 masks). Neutralize shine and purify sebum bring refreshed skintone. 

Mask Maven was where I discovered Hanaka masks - they are amazing!!! They are super soft and work really well!!

Beauty Friends II Essence Mask Sheet Pack (Kiwi) ~ $1.20. Kiwi - includes Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract containing lots of vitamin C that help to soothe rough and damaged skin which can make skin looking smooth and soft while it cleans and moisturizes.  The kiwi face masks have both tonic and therapeutic effects. With its high concentrations of vitamins and organic acids, the kiwi mask is ideal for making your skin smooth, soft, young and more elastic. A great moisturizer with the powers of anti aging.

This is a new brand for me and all their ingredients are all natural. You can also heat or cool these before use! 

Beauty Friends II Essence Mask Sheet Pack (Green Tea) ~ $1.20. Green Tea - includes Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract which are naturally rich in antioxidants, which help to protect skin from free radicals. The green tea face mask helps to preserve your complexion and even prevent photoaging, the most significant source of wrinkles. Rich in antioxidants, the green tea mask helps to protect your skin from the damaging effects of pollution and free radicals. It is deeply moisturizing and helps to condition your skin.

I don't mind seeing 2 of this brand because it is new to me! I like green tea masks and are great when my skin is not feeling great. 

Esfolio Volcanic Water Essence Mask Sheet ~ $0.90. Scoria water is an inorganic substance which is effective in removing keratin and skin wastes. Vitamins of chaenomeles sinensis fruit extract and portulaca oleracea extract help increase skin elasticity and moisture.

I have received a couple of Esfolio masks before, but not this kind - I am looking forward to using this. 

Face Q Luffa Oil Control Mask ~ $1.06 ($10.60 for 10 masks). Luffa Oil Control Mask is a mask with both calming and whitening effect. Enriched with natural luffa extract, the active enzyme can remove dirt and impurities in your skin, enhance skin metabolism. Barley extract can also soften skin, leaving your skin smooth and supple after use. 

Another brand I haven't seen yet! I am excited to try this! (This is a Taiwanese brand and I have really liked all the Taiwanese masks I have tried). 

SNP Troubled Skin Care Essence Mask ~ $3.98 (5 masks for $19.90). This is an essence mask for red spots.

I have loved SNP masks and I love this packaging! I am excited to try this. 

Beauteque's Mask Maven subscription came with 9 different masks, with a total value of $17.61. I don't expect a huge value out of a mask subscription, as long as I get around what I paid. Mask subscriptions are more about the curation and trying new masks, as opposed to overall value of the products. I liked this bag and thought the variety of masks was great! This is my last Mask Maven because I have so many masks to get through!

Did you get the August Mask Maven? What did you think of this month's bag?
