As I’m sure everyone who has even poked their head in to peruse one of my posts realizes by now, I have a fondness for facemasks. It is an equal opportunity love and it lead me to Facetory. They have several face mask subscriptions. One, which I get, is the 4-ever Fresh subscription, which as you may have guessed sends four sheet masks out to you each month for $8.90. There is also the Seven Lux for$19.90 each month where you get seven sheet masks and 1-2 bonus items, which are skin care related (like non-sheet masks). Finally, there is the seasonal Lux Subscription level for $49.95 each quarter where you can receive five to six skin care products plus 5-6 sheet masks.
While I love this subscription, one of the things I like about this service is the fact that I can pause it at any time. If you go to your subscription page and click the delivery options button, you can see a list of several months lined up. Each month has a button where you can click skip this month. You click it and boom, you’ve skipped a month no muss no fuss. If you decide that maybe you were wrong, you can easily reverse the decision as long as the billing date has not passed. Your billing date is the date you subscribed. So I subscribed on the 18th of the month so every month after I am billed on the 18th and my subscription is sent a few days after billing is complete. So you can decide when in the month you want to receive the subscription. I really enjoy those options along with the fact that I get to try so many different sheet masks.
This month in addition to the four masks of the subscription there was a fifth bonus mask. So in case you look at the photo and count five, that’s why. Your vision isn’t blurring, there are five masks.They do this on a regular basis. Every few months they will add in an extra mask. Personally, I’m a fan of this. So what are this month’s masks?
First up there is the Orgena Collagen Mask (retail $2). It is a sheet mask infused with collagen for extra moisture to help your skin feel soft and nourished. I’ve never tried the brand but I have liked some collagen masks in the past so I am sure I will have more to say about this one after I try it.
The second mask is the Jigott Pomegranate Mask (retail $2). It is infused with pomegranate, mountain Berry and cucumber extract. All these are designed to boost your complexion. I’m not entirely certain if mountain berry is a general or specific term.
It could mean berries from the mountains or there could be an actual fruit named Mountain Berry. I know there is a Service Berry so I suppose either is possible. I do love pomegranate though so I’m okay with a little berry themed confusion. Although my curiosity will end up making me look it up.
The third mask in my selection this month is the Ballon Blanc Blanc Therapy Avocado Mask (retail $2.50). Blanc Therapy masks have featured in past months and they have always been really good. This mask is said to brighten, moisturize and renew. This is a brand I hadn’t seen until I signed up for this subscription, but now their masks routinely land on my to be repurchased list.
The fourth mask in the subscription is the HaruHaru Prologue Soothing Mask. (retail $3.00). It was one of three options you could receive. One was the soothing (which I received) then there was a lifting and a moisture themed mask, all from the same company.
I’ve not tried this company before but I have to say I kind of like the image on the front of a girl wearing a sheet mask administering the Cool Down Drop Kick to the Heat Damage Demon. I also kind of like that while most of the description is in Korean they decided to translate both Heat damage and Cool Down Drop Kick.
The bonus mask this month didn’t come with a retail price marked but it is from Candy O’Lady and their masks are generally $2. The mask I received is the Little witch Candy Mask and it is designed to help with elasticity. I know having a sheet mask decorated with a cupcake seems anti skin care.
But I tried one of their other masks that was Cotton Candy themed and I have to say it was one of the best sheet masks I have tried. Its candy themed goodness put serious looking masks to shame. Admittedly only the name and the general purpose for the mask are in English, everything else is in Korean so I have no clue why it worked so well.
This is the same. Little witch candy mask and Elasticity are in English. That’s it. If it is as amazing as the Cotton Candy one, I may have to find a translation program to get some details. Or at least make certain that I am not unknowingly participating in some sort of demonic rite.
So if you add them all together (including the $2 bonus mask) the value of the product received is $11.50. Since I paid $8.90 I am perfectly happy with that break down. I am also happy that Facetory routinely has specials on their products (both masks and other skincare products) For example Masking Monday has a selection of their masks on sale for $1 each. So if you find one you like, you can wait until it is on sale and basically stock up for half price (since most of their sheet masks are about $2). Although sometimes their pricier masks end up on the Masking Monday’s sales as well so it is really worth checking in on Monday to see what is available. For me the question right now is, do I want to try the Little Witch Candy Mask first or start with the Cool down drop kick? Decisions, Decisions.
