Unboxing March 2017 Bliss Spa by MaskGenie + Coupon

It’s still called Mask Genie for now, but the website has been re-branded to Maskophy and you can purchase the mask pouches, called Bliss Spa, in a “subscription” style now.  I ordered a 3 month Bliss Spa set and for some reason, my bag was overlooked and shipped out late.  It is funny, because I probably was the first one to sign up for the new subscription service!!  I am happy to see Genie back with this service as I have missed it these past few months.

Bliss Spa by MaskGenie is a 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 couple of weeks, I get my pouch.  You can order the 8-10 mask pouch for $24.99 and that includes shipping and she just doesn’t ship to the USA ~ Maskophy ships all over the world.  “Receive a mystery selection of 8-10 masks that cares for your skin from head to toe, and for all the skincare concerns you may have. All products are carefully chosen and curated by us, all in order to give you the best selection of the craziest, coolest, and hottest trends!” ~ from MaskophyI also have a special coupon code for my readers ~ save 5% off any purchase at Mask Genie ~ use code BEAUTYFINDS5

I do need to find out how Genie wants her pouches to be called ~ Bliss Spa by MaskGenie or Bliss Spa by Maskophy!  So confusing!   Maskophy also will be selling other items, like accessories and jewelry too!

Pouch Revealed!

This is Bliss Spa #1

Dr Althea Herb Therapy Velvet Mask (Korea) No. #1 Moisturizing Hydrate/Refresh/Comfort    I think this will be my favorite mask in the set as I love the packaging with its old school type writer font and botanicals and the concept of a herb mask!  This contains green tea, calendula and chamomile, which are anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients.  I am familiar with Dr Althea masks but am not a fan of their hydrogels.  This is a sheet mask, so I am sure I will love this much better!  RV $3.10

Velvet sheet gives a clean and perfect fit. 237% moist improvement (clinical trial) FDA certification. Made with ultrafine fiber for a better absorption and deeper penetration of the serum.

Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Mask (Taiwan) I am a huge fan of Naruko products and have tried a lot of their masks ~ funny enough, it was MaskGenie who introduced me to this brand with the snail mask (which I didn’t like so much).  I have reviewed a lot of the masks here and will repeat my review of this one ~ which is one of my favorite Naruko masks  RV $2.25

This one is very different from the other Naruko masks ~ it has a creamy milky essence and it is a V-Line mask, which means it has a neck mask attached to the face mask.  There are 4 loops, 2 on the neck and 2 on the face, where you loop that around your ears and it tightens the mask across and up your face, lifting your skin while you wear this mask.  The essence smells wonderful, like magnolias and this Brightening & Firming mask is for “mature” skin (which is me!!), helping to brighten and tone your skin.  The mask sheet is thicker than most of the Naruko masks, as it has to tighten across your face, so it is a stretchy material ~ once I applied this to my face and hook the loops around my ears, I felt pretty tucked in there!  I tried to show the sides of my ears and the neck piece, which is why the photo looks so funny!  Not the most comfortable position to take a selfie ~ but this mask is very comfortable to wear ~ a lot of V-line masks are so tight I feel like they are about to slice thru my ears, but this one has the right amount of “lifting” and tightening without too much pressure.  Because of the V-line loops, I felt that the coverage around my chin and nose area was really lacking.  There isn’t a lot of essence left over in the package, but this mask has enough rich creamy essence that I was able to leave it on for 40 minutes.  I didn’t notice any tightening, but I did notice an immediate brightening of my skin complexion and my skin was very moist and hydrated.  I really enjoyed using this one and I plan to purchase a box or two from Naruko ~ I found it to be very soothing and relaxing to wear, with great results.
