Beauteque Monthly August BB Bag: Unboxing & Overview

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For August, I tried out a new Korean beauty subscription bag from Beauteque Monthly. For $24 USD a month plus a flat shipping rate, the BB Bag brings a selection of skin care and beauty products to your front door to test out. The goodies for August come with a super cute faux-leather mint makeup purse. To check out what's inside the bag, click.......
O'Palis Blotting Paper
O'Palis Blotting Paper ($5 USD):
These are some very simple blotting papers in a cute portable packet. I use blotting papers pretty regularly so these come in pretty handy.

Hanaka V-Line Chin Patch ($3.80 USD):
An interesting mask made just for the chin/neck portion of the face, the V-Line Chin Patch is infused with collagen and centella extract. The mask is shaped like a face mask that get's hooked on the ears and strapped across the chin. The fit is actually pretty tight and I found the mask to be lightly tingly. In terms of concept, this was definitely interesting; however, I just don't know how useful I find this to be.

Pure Derm Clean and Fresh Peeling Gel
Pure Derm Clean and Fresh Peeling Gel ($8.50 USD):
Although called a "peeling" gel, this is actually a cleaning gel formulated with apple, lemon, and orange extract. I really like the capped spout opening because it means I can recap and reuse whatever remains in the pouch, super convenient for traveling!

Pure Derm Hair Mask ($6.95 USD):
A hair mask made with honey, olive oil, and sweet almond, the Vital Radiance Honey Mask has a super thick texture that made my hair nourished and smooth. My only criticism is how little product was included in the pouch; my hair is only shoulder-length but there was hardly enough mask to cover everything.

Mizon All-in-One Snail Repair Cream ($25 USD):
This is a cream moisturizer with a whopping 92% snail extract that promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scar, and blemishes. The formulation is light-weight and gel-like with virtually no scent. The cream is lightly hydrating and it absorbs super quickly with a natural matte finish.

Holika Holika Wonder Drawing No Smudge Liquid Eyeliner
Holika Holika Wonder Drawing No Smudge Liquid Eyeliner ($13.50 USD):
A liquid liner with a thin brush applicator, this liner from Holika Holika promises an easy application and a smudge-free wear. I haven't had a chance to try this liner just yet but from swatches on my hand, it looks super intense but takes quite a while to set.

The Saem Perfection Concealer Tip Cover ($8.50 USD):
This is a long-lasting concealer with a doe-foot applicator. I've got way too many opened concealers in my drawer already so I will probably stow this away until I'm finished with my current ones.

I'm pretty happy with the content of this month's BB Bag. I like the wide variety of products and the equal concentration on skin, hair, and beauty. My favorites from the bag are probably the snail cream and the blotting paper. For $24 USD a month (plus shipping), the value of $71.25 USD is pretty decent!
