UNBOXING: Beauteque BB Bag July 2017

Beauteque sent me their BB Bag for the month of July, which was packed to the brim with "sweet" goodies!

Lets jump right in to the unboxing and review for July's BB Bag! :D






BEAUTEQUE JULY 2017 BB BAG

The Beauteque BB Bag is a monthly subscription beauty bag that focuses exclusively on Korean beauty products including makeup, skincare, body & hair products, beauty tools, and etc. Each month revolves around a new theme!




WHAT'S IN ITMOSTLY Korean cosmetics (including categories such as makeup, skincare, body, hair, bath, nails and beauty tools)

HOW MANY ITEMS 6 FULL-SIZED items

COST$24 /month (+ $3.95 shipping)



The BB Bag theme for July was "Summer Sweets" and roughly half of the products were actually very fitting! I find the themes of the bags to be very hit and miss since generally, the items in the bag aren't very cohesive with the theme. Regardless, there's always a vast variety of products and its a great way to try new things.


The pouch of the month was a clear, netted silver and glittery pouch! It's one of the bigger bags I've received from Beauteque and has the capability to hold a LOT. As a PSA to readers out there though, the July bag is the LAST time a beauty bag will be included. Going forward (starting with August), the BB Bag will now be sent in a cute cardboard box!






THE SAEM SAEMMUL CANDY LIP TINT

FULL SIZE   10g
VARIETIES: Color will vary
RETAIL VALUE: $6

The Saem Saemmul Candy Lip Tint is my absolute FAVORITE item out of this month's entire bag, but mostly because I'm a major sucker for cute packaging. The lip tint comes housed in an adorable candy-shaped bottle. It has your average doe-foot applicator and comes in 5 different hues, but I received #1 Cherry which is a very pigmented vibrant red. The formula is light watery gel making it a breeze to apply. 






WANGSKIN CHERRY FOAMING SOAP

FULL SIZE  |  100g
RETAIL VALUE: $6

This facial bar soap smells just like cherries, but I usually shy away from bar soaps since they tend to be more drying on my already dry skin. :( I have yet to give this one a try since I have a plethora of cleansers waiting in line at the moment. Wangskin is a brand I'm not super familiar with, so I'm glad that Beauteque is introducing me to more brands rather than including the typical mainstream ones.






FARMSTAY ALL IN ONE HONEY AMPOULE

FULL SIZE  |  250ml
RETAIL VALUE: $15

FarmStay is another brand that's completely new to me, and the All In One Honey Ampoule is HUGE. The bottle and packaging looks nearly identical to the Scinic and Shara Shara honey ampoules, which I've used both and loved! The formula of this one by FarmStay is very similar to the previous two - it's very moisturizing and soothing on the skin, but it does have a bit of tackiness to it. I like to use it at night and it makes my skin so supple and smooth the next morning!






WONJIN EFFECT 3-STEP HONEY BOMB MASK

FULL SIZE  |  1 Mask
RETAIL VALUE: $6

Again, I'm not a fan when subscription boxes include a sheet mask as a "full size" item since it's really only one-use. Nonetheless, I LOVE honey masks and the Wonjin Effect 3-Step Honey Bomb Mask does not disappoint. It's the ideal pick-me-up mask that gives my skin the moisture it craves while making my complexion even and brighter.






EXFOLIATING SPA MITT

FULL SIZE  
RETAIL VALUE: $6

There's no brand for this exfoliating spa mitt, so I'm not sure where it came from. It's a really nifty item that scrubs away all of my body's dead skin cells leaving it super smooth! Though it doesn't say anything about use on the face, I'd recommend this only for the body since the exfoliation would be too harsh and rough on the face!






A'PIEU SILICONE MASK COVER

FULL SIZE
RETAIL VALUE: $5

The A'Pieu Silicone Mask Cover is another favorite from this bag! If you're one that likes to multitask by sheet masking and doing other things at once, this will be your new best friend. The mask cover keeps your sheet mask in tact, so you're free to move around without the fear of your sheet mask shifting around or falling off. PLUS, this mask cover minimizes the evaporation rate and thus, you get longer wear time and your skin absorbs more of the essence!






*TOTAL VALUE: ~$44
*For the value, I did a quick Google search to find stores selling the products. These do not include the cost of shipping, and any other miscellaneous costs.






FINAL THOUGHTS

July's BB bag came with a total of 6 items with an estimated value of around ~$44! The box costs $24 (+ $3.95 shipping), so the value was definitely there for this month. However from personal experience, the value was a little lower than the average of past boxes I've tried. 

This month's bag had a decent mixture of skincare, makeup, and beauty tools! It's not my favorite box to date, but I still think it was a decent selection. Plus, Beauteque managed to introduce me to two new brands, FarmStay and Wangskin, and that's an impressive feat for a major K-beauty lover like myself. I'm in love with the Saem Saemmul Candy Lip Tint and am happy with 4/6 products, so I'll take that as a win! If you're just getting started into K-beauty, I think this is one of the best subscriptions to try especially if you want the most bang for your buck.
