Unboxing October 2016 MaskGenie + Coupon

So, September’s MaskGenie was one month I didn’t care for ~ and I wonder if this month will be better? I think last month for the first month ever that was a complete dud for me. I kept in mind that Genie (owner of MaskGenie) has been ill recently, yet she has faithfully put together the mask pouches for her customers. Please stop by her youtube channel and wish her well.

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 ~ October is not yet  up.  I also have a special coupon code for my readers ~ save 5% off any purchase at Mask Genie ~ use code BEAUTYFINDS5

Pouch Revealed!

 

Oozoo Face Injection Mask Nutrient (S. Korea)  Wow, this is different! This is a two part system ~ a syringe containing an anti-wrinkle and strengthening essence and a cotton mask.  The bag containing the mask has an injection port and the syringe is injected into that port and you depress the syringe into the mask.   I guess I would want to massage the mask pack a bit before opening it up and applying.  This is really interesting and I am looking forward to trying it out!  You can watch this video here on how to use it.  Update: MaskGenie has learned that some customers Oozoo masks burst in transit.  If your Oozoo masks burst or was damaged, email MaskGenie and she will apply a $5.00 credit to your account.   RV $5.00

YEAH!! This month is a winner from MaskGenie!  Two new snail masks and you don’t see Baviphat and Sasatinnie brands that often.  Also I love the DiaForce masks and I think this might be the last variation of that series… A new concept in masks with Oozoo (it looks pretty interesting) and I love the jelly masks from the I’m Sorry for My Skin (which I keep wanting to call I’m Sorry for My Face ~ ahaha) line.  And of course, you cannot go wrong with favorites from My Beauty Diary and Holika Holika. Great month and it looks like MaskGenie is back on track!   I paid $23.99  for this pouch, which included shipping, and received a retail value of over $25.00 ~ this is a really high value pouch, as shipping from Hong Kong is not inexpensive and should be factored in with the cost, as you are supporting an indie, woman-owned business.

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.   Use coupon code  BEAUTYFINDS5 to save 5% off any purchase at Mask Genie
