Beauteque Beauty Bag Review

Unknown | 2:12 PM | | | | | |
When it comes to beauty products, the amount of items out there is endless. It can be a challenge sometimes because not everything out there works for our skin. Not only that, but the amount of money we spend on these products can sometimes be a bit over board. Well, not everyone does, but I'm sure a lot of you will understand what I mean. For the past few months now, I've been on a search for subscription boxes of all categories. I've done boxes mainly on geeky goodies, but I want to expand that category and throw in some different themed/types of boxes. So, with that being said, here is my review on the Beauteque Beauty Bag (BB Bag).


BB Bag is a monthly subscription program that delivers products to your door. Just like any other subscription company out there. They send you 7 fulls sized luxury products like makeup, jewelry, skin care and a lot more. The list of items they throw in each bag is endless. Here are some of the things I received in my BB Bag:
Baviphat Strawberry Toxifying Mask - $26

Details: This deep cleansing wash-off clay mask helps tighten pores, control sebum and give relief to troubled skin. Contains Strawberry extract and fruit acids full of Vitamin C that can speed up removal of dead skin cells ad tighten pores. Antioxidants stave off signs of aging and protect skin.
To use: Apply to clean skin for 15-20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.

My thoughts: When it comes to face masks, I can personally say that they are the best thing to use on your face. I use clay, cream and the peel off masks about one to three times a week. It all depends on how the week goes. When doing the mask, I prefer to do it after my shower, this way my skin feels refreshed. Now, they say that when you wash your face, you should rinse with cold water and this will help close the pores. But when I am going to be applying the mask I rinse with warm water. I feel that this is a lot better because all of the vitamins and minerals that are in the mask will soak into the skin a lot better. Than after the mask has set, I rinse it off with warm water and than cold to close the pores.

On the days I use the face mask, I leave my skin alone. I don't apply any lotion or moisturizer on my face. I've been doing facial masks for a few months now and to be honest, I'd have to say that I've noticed a difference in my skin. My skin is a lot clearer and smoother than before. Not only that, but I love the smell of the Strawberry Toxifying Mask. Another thing I also wanted to point out was that when you use the mask, you only need a think layer. This stuff goes a long way. You'll know when it's ready to rinse because it dries and starts to break when you move you face. This is also the first face mask that I've used that actually pulls the gunk out of your pores. I noticed that there were black spots when the mask was set and when I rinsed it off, my pores were cleared out. Now that's better than squeezing the gunk out with your fingers.
May Island Peach Hand Cream - $6

Details: Smelling of fresh peaches this cream contains extracts of peach, apricot and Shea butter for your smoothest skin yet

My thoughts: Hand creams are another one of my favorite things to use. I cannot go a day without applying some on my hands. I tend to use quite a lot throughout the day, but I'd rather have my skin feel smooth rather than dry. On a work day though, I usually wait till I get home to apply some hand cream. I don't see a point in applying some on my hands before work because I end up using a lot of cleaners anyways.

So on those nights I work, I cleanse my hands and apply some hand cream. I love using hand cream on my skin just before bed because while I'm sleeping, the vitamins and minerals from the product has plenty of time to soak in my skin. This also works great in the winter. I found that if you apply hand cream just before bed, it will reduce any chances of having dry skin. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Baviphat Peach All-in-One Peeling Gel Mini - $5

Details: Exfoliate, reduce appearance of pores, and brighten skin with this Vitamin C-rich treatment.
To use: Apply to dried-off skin and rub in circular, gentle motions until product turns to small flakes, thank rinse with lukewarm water.

My thoughts: This product right here is different from something I'd normally use. I've never tried an All-in-One peeling gel, so this is new to me. First off, the texture is almost jelly like. When you first open the container it looks like a glob of jello. The product is very light and when you apply it to the dry areas of your skin, it works very well. I used it on my nose since I tend to have dry skin there the worst and I was surprised at how much dead skin it removed. This product goes a long way when you use it and I enjoy it very much!


Tony Moly Timeless EGF Second Skin Eye Goggles - $7

Details: Offers anti-aging and brightening powers, while improving elasticity of the eye are, leaving this delicate area refreshed and younger-looking.
To Use: Cleanse your face and pat dry. Remove film on back of patch and apply to eye area with the largest part closest to the nose. Leave on for 10-20 minutes and remove.

My thoughts: I haven't used the eye goggles yet... But I will soon!
Tony Moly Cotton Nail Ball - $4

Details: Remove old polish and prep for a new shade with this cleverly-packages bundle of cotton balls.
To use: Pour a moderate amount of nail polish remover on cotton ball, than swipe across nails to remove polish.

My thoughts: You know, when I first opened my package with all these goodies, I seen this container and got excited. I thought I was going to be getting a sweet treat, but that when I read the description... I wasn't the only one that thought it was cotton candy. You should have seen how quick my kids hovered over me with their mouths drooling. Than when I told them it's not for eating, they were bummed. My oldest looked at me and said, "I don't believe you! You just want it all to yourself"...

Really kid? So I had him read the package and he changed his tune quick.  Huh... Kids... Anyways, I find this to be quite an adorable way to package the cotton balls. It's a unique way to give these cotton balls more of an appeal than the bagged ones. I am digging the different colors as well.
iCharming nail polish (shade will vary) - $5

Details: Greet the season in polished style with a high-gloss finish nail polish
To use: After removing old nail polish with the Tony Moly cotton nail ball and a polish remover, apply nail polish in a vertical strokes to nails.

My thoughts: When it comes to nail polish, I am very picky on the color I want to use. I prefer more of a dark color when I do put some on, but occasionally I'll go for something light. It all depends on what I am wearing. This color right here is a very light pink, and the one thing I love about it is that it blends in with my skin tone. It's a perfect polish to use plain or it can be used if you were doing a french manicure. I don't know the name of this color, but it is very pretty!
iCharming Witch's Pouch Lip and Eye Remover - $10

Details: Remove lip and eye makeup remover in luxurious comfort.
To use: Apply to cotton swab and sweep gently across eye area or lip area.

My thoughts: I'm not much of a makeup person and if I do wear it, it all depends on the occasion. If I am going to a wedding or a family gathering, than I'll throw on some eyeliner and eye shadow and I'm good to go. The great thing about this product, even though I haven't tried it yet, would be that it's makeup remover for the lips and eyes. There aren't that many makeup removers meant for these areas of the skin and knowing that this is for eyes and lips, it would be a lot safer to use. When I do throw on some makeup, I will give this product a try and see how well it works.

My overall thoughts on the BB Bag: I'd have to say that this BB Bag is outstanding. I love a lot of the products that came in this bag! My all time favorite product would have to be the Toxifying Face Mask! This is one product I would definitely get more of in the future. It goes deep into the pores and pulls out all the nasty buildup without having to push it out yourself and it leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean right after. Plus a little bit of this stuff goes a long way which makes this product worth every penny.

I know I haven't tried two of the products from the BB Bag, but I will soon. All the items I received in this bag is worth $63 all together and that's a deal right there. Normally each bag comes with $65 to $85 worth of products. With the BB Bag, you pay anywhere from $22 to $24 a month. It all depends on how long you want to subscribe to their monthly bad of goodies. This is one bag I'd say is worth looking into and I love all of the products I received this month. Oh, and before I forget, the bag the items came in (first image in the post) is adorable! I love the design!

  5. This is really a great beauty box with some really neat items. Normally I would say this would be perfect for my daughter because she is the one with tons of beauty products but I would really like this for myself. By the way I think it's pretty funny when your oldest didn't believe you about the cotton balls sayin that you just wanted it for yourself. :)
