Just in time for the end of the month, I received my MaskGenie pouch for May! At first glance, I wasn’t sure about this pouch, but once I started to dig into it, I decided this is a great month!
MaskGenie is a monthly subscription of masks ~ facial sheet mask, body masks, wash off masks and hair masks. The owner lives in Hong Kong and she (Genie) finds masks that are popular, trending, new ingredients and determines which ones she feels are worthy for her customers to try. Shipping is extremely fast ~ within a week, I get my pouch. You can order the 8-10 mask pouch for $23.99 and that includes shipping and she just doesn’t ship to the USA ~ MaskGenie ships all over the world. The 5 pouch mask set is being discontinued starting January 2016, as there wasn’t a lot of subscribers to that and the 10 pouch is now 8 to 10 masks, as Genie wants to be able to add in higher end (more expensive) masks to the pouch ~ the value will still be there, however, it is just that some masks will be more expensive. Genie tries to do her pouch reveal on Youtube as well, and if it is up when I post this unboxing, I will link to it. I also have a special coupon code for my readers ~ save 5% off any purchase at Mask Genie ~ use code BEAUTYFINDS5

This is another great month from MaskGenie ~ the majority of the masks found in here are very unusual brands for the USA market and some of them just look amazing ~ Solone, annagaspi, Dainty Design and Lovien ~ I hope Genie will include a Lovien full facial mask as those just look great with the ingredients list! I am very happy with this month’s selection and I feel I received a quality pouch this month. I paid $23.99 for this pouch, which included shipping, and received a retail value of around $22.50. This is to be expected as shipping from Hong Kong is not inexpensive and many of these masks are hard to find outside of the Asian markets, so you have to add on shipping for each individual site you go to.
If you are interested in MaskGenie, just go to her online store at www.skinilove.com and you can place your order that way, which would be month by month OR if you think you want this to be a reoccurring subscription, email Genie at her FB page at and let her know to invoice you monthly.
