Beauteque is a K-Beauty online store, located in the USA. I have purchased several items, plus I subscribe to their monthly beauty bag and have been very pleased with their service. Their customer service is top notch.
Beauteque offers Head To Toe bags, which are special edition spa bags with a theme. I think that their Head To Toe bags are curated well and they just recently offered a Breakfast Bag!

They always say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It will keep you energized and nourished the entire day. This March, the Beauteque team has created a collection of tasty and healthy products for you! Not only do we want you to be healthy and revitalized , but also, we want you to be beautiful with these luxurious skin products.
I had the option of selecting what type of Skinfood Bath Fizzer I wanted (Honey Salt, Black Sugar or Green Tea) and Etude House Massage Yogurt Pack (Apple-Sugar, Raspberry, or one of each). The Tonymoly Banana hand cream was a spoiler :) I didn’t get a shipping notice, but my bag showed up the other day on my doorstep!
All but one item fit in the cute little blue-flowered bag, that has a handle on the top. This is a great little bag to take when traveling! I love the retro-print on this bag🙂
Cherry Apron ~ This is the “lifestyle” item in the bag. Beauteque usually includes one of these items in their bags, and it can be a lifestyle, beauty tool or clothing item. I happen to like that they do this, as I love to get these little surprises. This is cherry print full apron ~ you just slip it over your head and as the instructions state, “Tie the string around your back“. ROFLMAO at the instructions! This seems to be a one size fits most apron. I think it is cute and I don’t own an apron, so this is handy. Value $15.00
Skinfood Soda Bath Fizzers in Black Sugar ~ I was tempted to try the Honey Salt, but in the end, I went with the Black Sugar. I love Skinfood’s Black Sugar line and since these are made from salt, I figured I would get the salt benefits anyway. These have a nice light sweet scent and I love that you can see the “chunks” of black sugar in the egg shaped fizzer. And how cute is that egg carton? Really nicely done with the packaging. I’ve been wanting to try these bath fizzers for a while now, and I will have to slot in bath-time this weekend to try this out! Full Size 63 g (2 eggs) Value $12.00
Description: Containing brown sugar rich in minerals, this bath fizzer provides deep moisturization to skin, making it resilient.
Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, anhydrous citric acid, sucrose, alcohol, ferric oxide, chronium oxide greens, hydrated ferric oxide, caramel, parfum cosDNA.com analysis
Etude House Sunshine in Spoon Scrub Massage Yogurt in Apple-Sugar I could have gone half/half and gotten 2 packets of the raspberry, but I was more interested in this “Apple Sugar” description than the raspberry ~ I still have a couple of raspberry wash off masks, so I went with four packets of the Apple-Sugar Massage Scrub. I did try one out this morning ~ one packet is good for 2 “scrubs”. This is a white creamy “lotion” and it has little grains of exfoliating beads in it ~ very gentle. It smells like green (granny smith) apples and I massaged it into my skin until there was no more cream on my face, followed by rinsing my face with warm water. My face did feel smoother, due to the little beads. It contains cherimoya fruit extract 1.39 µg, lotus extract, japanese apricot extract and yogurt powder 7 µg. This also comes in a large tube, which I would think is more convenient than these packs, but this is a good way to try something new out, as they do not cost that much money. 14 mL 2x Value $6.00
Description: This is a scrub massage wash off pack which is possible to do soft & easy massage with soft yogurt & mild peeling particles. Sugar Apple (anonacherimolia fruit extract), which is a sweet & soft tropical Fruit, makes your skin elastic while doing a massage.
How To Use: After cleansing and drying your face, apply a moderate amount to your face. Massage like drawing a circle with fingertips for 2-3 minutes gently and rinse off with warm water.

too cool for school Egg Cream Mask I believe this is my first too cool for school brand! This is an eggy facial sheet mask , that will help reduce the appearance of pores, while brightening and helping control oil. I am pretty excited to try this mask as I’ve only tried one other egg mask and I do like them. Since this does a couple of things I am interested in ~ oil control and brightening ~ this might have to be a repeat purchase. Full Size 28 g Value $4.00

Evas Vitamin Cleansing Foam in Citrus Lemon Fruit Extract I have had items from Evas before ~ their dessert cleaning foams, Vitamin body washes and Vitamin sunscreen, and I do like this company and their products. This is their Vitamin C foam, which has Vitamin C and B, lemon extracts, hyaluronic acid and is designed to brighten your skin while cleansing. This does have jasmine in it, so I will do a patch test first when I get around to this cleanser. Full Size 150 mL Value $10.00

Gentle foam thoroughly removes any dirt and makeup without interfering with the natural balance of the skin.Revitalizes dull complexion, evening skin tone.

It takes me several hours to translate the above ingredients, since I cannot find a cut and paste version. I will update this blog once I translate the above ingredients. I am posting the photo in case someone is really interested in the ingredient list and wants to translate it themselves🙂
From Nature e Choice Fermented Tea Skin Drinks Sleeping Pack Arrgghhhh! I keep getting this product ~ twice from Memebox and now here! This sounds so lovely ~ fermented teas, but e-Choice put in ROSE and JASMINE in this sleeping pack, so I cannot use it. I wonder why a sleeping pack is included in a breakfast bag?

Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk Every time I see this banana, I think of this scene in Beverly Hills Cop
Okay, this is one of the many fruit hand creams in the Tonymoly line ~ I own the apple, peach and tangerine, so this rounds out my fruit hand creams for now. This cream contains 10,185ppm banana extract, for nourishment, and 350ppm milk protein extracts, for improving the elasticity of your skin. I have to say this is my least favorite scent of the fruity hand creams ~ tangerine is my favorite, followed by apple, peach and this one is really dead last. I find that the scent reminds me of some artificial banana flavor/scent ~ it is too sweet for my liking ~ I guess I really wanted to try it out as I read so many reviews on the scent, but it is not really one that I care for. However, it is a hand cream, which I use ~ probably on my feet ~ and it is cute. The top comes off and it is like a squeeze tube ~ just squeeze the lower part of the banana and the hand cream comes out. Wow, phallic….haha I have another banana hand cream coming to me, as I had ordered before I got this bag and I will give that one to my niece ~ I think she will like the sweet scent of bananas. Maybe I just ate too many bananas back in the days when I did a lot of training on my bike. I cannot eat bananas for the most part, even to this day, because I overdid it so many years ago!

Even though I cannot use one of the products, the sleeping pack, I really like this Breakfast bag ~ I am getting to try products that I had been waiting to purchase, but just never got around to doing so. The Skinfood bath fizzers are the product I am really excited to try out, along with the too cool for school Egg Cream mask. The Etude House Sugar Apple yogurt massage scrubs are a nice addition, and I think that the cherry apron is cute🙂 The cosmetic bag is just adorable and I will be using that for when I travel as the handle makes it very handy! I think that Beauteque hit the nail on the head with the Breakfast theme ~ with fruits, sugar, tea and eggs! I paid $26.00 + $5.50 shipping for a total of $31.50, and received a BeautequeValue** of $70.00. The bag is an extra and there is no price on it.
** Just as with Memebox, the values of these products are the manufacturer’s retail value, but you can sometimes find them cheaper elsewhere.
This bag (click here) is still available and Beauteque does ship internationally (Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan as well as USA. If you live outside of the USA, your shipping cost will be slightly higher than $5.50. Did you get the Head to Toe Breakfast bag? What is your favorite item?
Also, don’t forget that Beauteque has a monthly Beauty Bag and a monthly Mask Subscription (Mask Maven) subscription at their sister site beautequemonthly.com ~ If you want to know more about their monthly service, check out my blog post here and I have reviewed the January and February bags. They are sorting out issues with shipping, as there have been some major delays with international and even USA bags ~ however, people are getting their bags. I hope they will be able to get the issue problems fixed, as Beauteque does curate bags very well.
