Unboxing Beauteque’s Head To Toe Milk Bag!

Beauteque is a K-Beauty online store, located in the USA.  I have purchased several items from their shop and have reviewed their mineral foundation and November 2014 Beauty bag.     I really like their products and their service is top-notch!!   They just recently sent me their latest special edition of their Head to Toe Bag ~ which features…Milk!    I received this bag from Beauteque, free, for my unbiased and honest review.

Why is milk so important in skincare?   Cleopatra was reported to have bathed in milk to keep her skin youthful, brighter and blemish free of imperfections.   Milk hydrates and replenishes the skin with moisture, keeping it nourished and radiant!  Milk protein extracts help shrink pores, soothes skin irritations, helps lighten skin discolorations from acne, exfoliates dead skin cells, helps speed up the healing of wounds and smooths your skin.   So, milk DOES do a body good!

“This is the January Beauteque Head to Toe Milk Bag!  Did you know milk has amazing moisturizing properties?  Well, now you do!”


Informational Card, explaining what I received


My items came in a cute black and white checked gingham bag and everything fit in this bag except the sponges ~ so the bag is a good size!

Secret Key Milk Brightening Toner   I love Secret Key products.  I think they are one of the most underrated companies and yes, they are inexpensive, but I haven’t met a Secret Key item that I haven’t loved yet!   I am obsessed right now with brightening products as I do have uneven skin tone from all of the years of living out in sunny southern California ~ I have sun spot damage that is now appearing on my face.   This is a lovely milky watery toner that is so gentle and moisturizing.  This is the perfect toner to use during these cold winter months when the winds and extreme temperatures cause skin damage.  This not only has milk protein extracts, but has galactomyces filtrates (my good ol’ yeasty friend) and extracts of pomegranate, ground cherry, raspberry, pasqueflower, potato, carrots, pumpkin, rice, usnea (lichen) and broccoli.   This is chock full of good moisturizing, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and exfoliating ingredients.   This toner has no alcohol in it and is free of parabens, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol, penzophenon and animal oil.  Secret Key has a whole line of these toners and I am very interested in getting the Tea Tree one for the summer time!  Full Size 248 mL Value $19.00

Product Description:  Colostrum contains skin growth factor natural protein and natural AHA, so it is effective for skin brightening and its abundance of vitamins, minerals and ions are helpful for enhancing the skins immunity.   The vitamins and minerals of the milk will supply your skin with nutrients and moisture making bright and elastic skin.  And the protein discomposing enzyme in the milk removes keratin and waste materials for bright skin tone as well as balancing skin oil and moisture balance for healthy skin.

Skinfood Green Tea Milk Cleansing Foam (Fresh) This is one of the 3 choices you can pick for your bag ~ you can pick either the Skinfood Wildberry Milk (Moist) or Skinfood Green Tea Milk (Fresh) Cleansing Foam.   I love green tea extracts and how they work well with my skin, so I choose the green tea version.   Wow, a Skinfood item!  Two of my favorite brands so far ~ Secret Key and Skinfood.    This is a “Fresh” version, which is for oil control, whereas the Wildberry (Moist) is for dry skin.    You don’t need a lot of this cleanser, as it foams up nicely on the skin and cleanses very well.  Green Tea extracts are full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory proprieties which protect skin against damage from free radical and the milk protein extracts will gently exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and brighter skin tone.  Full Size 150 mL  Value $12.00

Product Description: These moisturizing cleansing foams combine smooth milk extracts and anti-oxidant agents that will wash away dirt and oil, leaving the skin soft and radiant.


Secret Key Milk Whipping Hand Cream  At the time I received the option to choose, this was another one of the items you could pick from – either this hand cream or the Somang Milk Hand Cream.  It looks like you can only choose the Somang Milk Hand Cream now ~ the Secret Key option has sold out!  I chose the Secret Key Milk Hand Cream because I do own the Berry version already and I as I said earlier, I love me some Secret Key.  This hand cream is made with Donkey’s milk, hyaluronic acid and collagen ~ it has a light baby powder scent that quickly dissipates and it is a good, every day hand cream.   Full Size 60 mL Value $6.50

Product Description: Light weight hand creams that absorb into the skin without leaving any greasy residue.  Great for sensitive and semi-dry skin. 

For Secret Key: Donkey milk contents moisturizes and smooths hand skin.  Hyaluronic acid creates moisture protection layer, keeping skin healthy and moisturized.  Collagen improves moisture level and skin elasticity as smoothing complexion at the same time.  It penetrates deeply and quickly to the skin without heaviness or stickiness.

Lameila Milk Wash Off Sponge  We get two of these sponges in this one bag 🙂  These are very HUGE facial sponges that have been infused with milk proprieties so that when you wash your face, not only will you use it with your normal cleanser, you will get the benefits of the milk proteins within with these cleansing sponges.    I haven’t removed these from the inner bag, but have opened the outer bag and these seem to be moist sponges, which are individually wrapped.    These are made in China and Lameila is seems to be a reputable company with decent quality.   I will be trying this out in the morning to see how they work.    Full Size 2 sponges Value $10.00

Product Description:  An extremely gentle facial cleansing sponge with milk properties, that acts as a gentle exfoliator, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner.

How To Use:  Put cleanser on the sponge and wet it under warm water until it’s completely soaked through and soft.  Once it is, move in a circular motion around your face to exfoliate and remove dirt and grime.  This circular massaging will stimulate tired skin and encourage skin renewal.

3w Clinic Fresh Milk Mask   This is a variation where we do not get to choose ~ we either get the 3W Clinic Fresh Milk Mask or the Somang Milk Mask.   I received the 3W mask and this has 23 grams of essence, of which there are  milk protein extracts (.05%) ~ to hydrate;  betaine ~ moisturizer, anti-inflammatory, controls the water balance in skin;  arginine ~ an antioxidant that helps build collagen production; glycerin ~ a humectant;  these are all ingredients to help brighten and hydrate.  The sheet is 100% cotton.  Full Size 23 g Value $3.00

Product Description: Experience 23 g of essence at once with the MILK Mask Sheet.  The refreshing mask sheet absorbs into skin that needs elasticity and organizes the skin texture without stickiness and the milk protein extract makes the skin soft and comfortable by giving affinity on the skin.  Your skin will be utterly smooth after using 3W Clinic Fresh Mask Sheet- No.Milk. The ingredient, milk protein extract provides a healthy does of moisturization making skin soft and silky. The nonsticky formula quickly absorbs into skin, so the mask won’t slip and slide. Pop in the fridge before using for an ultimate cooling effect. Use on dry, tried skin

Ingredients: water, butylene glycol, glycerin, ethanol, sodium hyaluronate, betaine, arginine, cabomer,PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, allantoin, milk protein extract (.05%),  disodium EDTA, fragrance

Skinfood Shea Butter Milk Lip Care Balm  Another Skinfood product!  I am the LIP BALM Queen (please, just crown me now) and I haven’t gotten one made from milk before. This has a light pleasant scent, almost milky-sweet and it is very rich, smooth and creamy ~  quite hydrating and it is colorless.  Made from shea butter and milk protein extracts,  this is a great lip balm for the winter time.   This is one that could be given to anyone ~ young, old, male, female ~ in fact, when I was reading up on this product, Skinfood markets the Milk version for babies, so it is a very gentle and mild lip balm.  When I applied it, it was still on my lips several hours later, without any greasy or waxy feeling.   It is a timeless classic.  Full Size 3.5 g Value $7.00

Product Description: Skinfood’s Lip Care Balm is an excellent solution for chapped, cracked or dry lips.  Great all year round, but especially essential in cold and dry climates.   This lip care balm contains shea butter that helps provide moisture to lips, while giving them a smooth and healthy look.

Skinfood Milk Creamy Nail Polish  The last product and our third choice to pick from ~ the colors we can pick from are pink, purple, green, blue and orange ~ all pastel colors.  I choose the purple (lavender VL004) shade and it is a beautiful classic greyed-lavender shade.  It isn’t bright, but very muted.   The bottle is so cute ~ it is in the shape of a milk bottle!   The swatch below is two coats and it was not streaky or chalky looking.  Full Size 8mL Value $8.50

Product Description: A nail polish contained in a cute baby milk bottle to create cute and lovely nails in a milky, pastel color.

I hope that Beauteque will start to carry these products on their site, as I think it would generate a lot of interest!  I think this bag is amazing  and I love this bag ~ I happen to like milk products, although they can be a bit rich for my oily skin type, but this Milk bag is perfect ~ Beauteque gave me the choice to pick a cleanser that was appropriate for my skin type and the toner is a win-win for all skin types.   This bag had 7 full size products and based on the retail value is worth between $65 to $85.00.  This bag is currently for sale $25.00 + shipping and Beauteque not only ships to the USA, but to Canada and Europe as well.   You can purchase your own Head to Toe Milk Bag here.

Beauteque creates Head to Toe bags monthly and they always have cute and fun themes, like this current one of Milk and in the past, they have had the Spa version ~ of which I did purchase two of those and gave one to my mom ~ she is now addicted to masks!!  They also did a Mask Head to Toe bag as well.    You can check out their Beauteque’s Bag Collection to find out all of their current limited edition bags that they have on sale.

Also, don’t forget that Beauteque just launched a monthly Beauty Bag subscription at their sister site beautequemonthly.com ~ If you want to know more about their monthly service and the great introductory specials they are having, check out my blog post here.

  1. I like your reviews very much and I’m thinking of buying this bag, however I’m not sure which cleansing foam is better to choose for normal skin. Thanks for helping.

    1. Hi Szilvia, do you tend to be more dry or oily? If you are truly in the middle, leaning neither way, then I would think either of these cleansers would work for you. If you tend to be more oily or have acne, I would go with the Green Tea. If you tend to be more dry with little or no acne, then Wildberry 🙂 Let me know if that helped!


      1. Thanks, it helps and confirms my thoughts – rather Wildberry 🙂 Eg. cleansing foam (Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam) from Global #15 box leaves dry spots on my skin after usage. And I’m old enough having one acne only every quarter 🙂
