October 2015 Mask Genie 5 Mask Pouch - Facial Mask Subscription Review

*as of October 1, 2015 Mask Genie had a bit of a price increase due to Hong Kong shipping rates/policies (this will affect the November pouch and onward..)

Mask Genie is an all mask subscription. Mask Genie offers 2 different pouches:
  • 5 masks for $13.50
  • 10 masks for $23.50
The price for each pouch includes worldwide shipping! 

Mask Genie is a monthly purchase, not a continual subscription so you sign up when you want to receive a pouch! 

Mask Genie describes their service as:

"MaskGenie is a monthly masks membership service, which delivers a beautifully packaged drawstring pouch straight to your door containing a variety of fun and exciting masks from Asia.

Unlike other masks subscription services, MaskGenie gives you the freedom to choose what you buy and when you buy, so you never feel tied to anything. Throughout the year, there will also be Limited Edition Luxury Mask Pouches that you can purchase as an extra treat for yourself or for a friend.

MaskGenie is not only your usual masks subscription service where you receive a bunch of random masks each month, but with MaskGenie, all products are carefully chosen and curated by us, all in order to give you the best selection of the craziest, coolest, and hottest trends!

No matter what skincare concerns you may have, MaskGenie provides only the best masks that care for your skin from head to toe. You now have an opportunity to try out all the different types and brands of masks from Asia."

For October, I ordered the 5 mask pouch, here is a look:

Mask Genie always ships in an organza bag and includes a little card with what month you ordered. There is no product card included, but Mask Genie does unpouching videos on her Youtube channel. 

Looks like a good variety - here is a closer look at all the masks included:

Scinic Black Dual Mask (Aqua White) ~ $3.58 ($17.90 for 5). Two-part sheet masks are specially designed to address the specific needs of the T- and V-zones. T-zone mask regulates and balances oil secretion, refining pores and texture with regular use, while the U-zone mask moisturizes dry patches and firms up facial contours. Active ingredients of black sesame, black rice and black beans drench skin in amino-enriched proteins to promote skin health. Recommended for all skin types.

Oooh, I love the idea of a dual mask that has different purposes for different zones of the face! I'm excited to try this one! 

Shara Shara Baby Hand and Nail Mask ~ $11.78 (set of 5 for $58.90). This hand & nail sheet that contains herb complex which gives moisturizes and nourishing dry hand & nail.

Wow these are expensive!! I think Mask Genie has included the foot masks before (and i really liked them), so I am excited to try these! I love using hand masks as part of my Manicure Monday - it adds a little spa-at-home touch! 

Beauty Mate Anti-Blemish Repairing Mask ~ $1.52 (10 masks for $15.50 CDN or $89.90 HK). Aloe provides natural moisture-locking factor to keep the skin supple and delicate in all environments, and is ideal for acne-prone skin. Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract helps to regulate the water and oil level of the skin to prevent appearance of blemishes.

This sounds good, and I definitely could use this now so I will be trying this soon!

Majn Activating & Tightening Eye Mask ~ $2.00. TCM Mask Activating & Tightening Eye Mask contains of collagen which can maintain your skin be firm and flexible by avoiding production of wrinkles and loosening of your skin. The product diffuses into cuticle layer and compensates antioxidant in order to avoid aged skin.

I love my eye masks, so I always excited to try new ones! These are also a really interesting shape and go under and around your eye as well. 

Bio'Main Cordyseps Sinensis Sleeping Pack ~ $2.90. The Chinese Medicine Masks series adopt the latest technology to extract the essence from the pure natural Chinese herbal medicine. It combines the traditional Chinese medical theory thoroughly with the modern beauty industry; therefore greatly enhance the effect of beauty nursing which especially suits for the skin of eastern females.

Mask Genie has sent a different type of this mask in a past bag (I think I still have to use that, I just have so many sleeping masks!), but this is quite a big packahe like it will last multiple uses so that is awesome! 

Mask Genie's October Pouch came with 5 masks, and a total value of $21.78 - this is as always a general estimate (some prices are American and some Canadian and often include bulk pricing costs). This is a great value for the 5 set, as usually the value is a little higher than the cost of the bag. 

Mask Genie's pouch to me is about much more than the value of the masks - she really takes the time to curate a great pouch! She always sends harder to find and original masks from Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong and Korea. I really love this subscription. This pouch especially had a really great variety and I loved everything!
