I signed up for it quite late but I am excited to present my January Beauteque bag!! I was so excited when they still planned on sending the January bag to me even though I signed up for them quite late!! The bag is gorgeous, I love the sleek gold color and the size is perfect for travelling! I enjoy having a collection of makeup bags, especially ones this big. I can put lots of makeup in it when I am on the go.
BEAUTEQUE JANUARY 2015 BB BAG
The items sent were a total of 8, some samples, some full-size. Although they claim prices of each item for you to see its worth, I did my research on other online stores which I use that sell Asian skincare, and list the cheapest place to find it. That is how I calculate the worth of the bag. Items I love are listed in the price, items with “meh” are cut by half in price and items I hate are not calculated in the worth.
CHEETAH SLEEPING MASK
This mask is nice at night, its double layered, soft and works perfectly to block out light as well as adjust snugly to face and nose area. I feel like it is a bit overprized though.
MILANI SUNSET DUO BLUSH AND BRONZER IN 04 SUNSET SHORES
MILANI Sunset Duos Blush & Bronzer Powder Mosaics Bronzer and Brighter A perfect blend of color in every powdery sweep. Get four complimentary, multi-toned colors in one compact. Sweep across all for a radiant and refreshed glow or select a tone to contour and accentuate cheeks.
When I first tried this product I was not sure if I liked it. In fact I hated it. I didn’t like the orange and I definitely hate bronzers in general. But an idea popped in my mind to mix and blend. The blended color result was so gorgeous I fell in love! Now it is one of my favorite blushes to own, it gives me a nice, sun kissed, radiant glow.
MILATTE FASHIONY 3-STEP CLEAR NOSE PACKS
It was hard to find information about this product, from what I found it was supposed to take a total of 45 minutes to use. 45 minutes!! oh heck no. I was not enjoying this! You use each one for 10-15 minutes and its supposed to help with blackheads etc. I used the first 2 and by the time I used the second and peeled it off, I noticed it did not work. I currently use the nose pack by the face shop and comparing it to that one, it certainly fails at its job in my opinion. All that came off were a few oils, no dirt or gunk from my pores, and it left a lot of residue, I had to go wipe it off with a toner. I can tell you that even the regular biore nose strips are way better than this one.

IT’S SKIN NECK FOCUS PATCH
It's SKIN Neck Focus Patch is specifically designed to be worn around your neck. It promotes elasticity for skin around neck line. The neck patch nourishes and moisturizes the skin around the neck matching the line of the neck. Use once a week for maximum effectiveness. Directions: After cleansing, sooth your skin with toner first. Then attach the patch on your neck. After 15-20 minutes take off the patch and tap lightly.
The idea behind this product is innovative, however the effectiveness? not so much. Although on application the mask is cooling and refreshing to my neck, after about 5 minutes it keeps falling off. I reapply and it falls off again. I definitely did not enjoy this mask very well. I guess you have to lay down straight in order to use it appropriately.

THE FACE SHOP CLEAR HAIR MIST IN PEACH FLORAL
This is a portable spray typed hair mist which removes the odor & hair oil and make the hair clean & fresh.Has sweet & fresh fruit floral Scent. Jewel complex and Argan oil supply moisture to hair that has been damaged by external factors. Targeting a famous perfume, this product removes the odors from the scalp, perspiration and sebum and leaves only the sweet, fresh fragrance of peach blossom. Contains sebum-controlling powder that removes excessive sebum and unpleasant odor, giving a refreshing sensation to the hair. How to use: Spray a mist anytime you feel some grease on. Carry around in your purse and use before/after towel drying, sweaty hot summer afternoons and when hair feel smelly after going to a restaurant or to a smoky area, etc.
This is a great product for oily hair, and as a dry shampoo, it helps absorb excess oil and refreshes the scent of your hair. It also smells amazing. My best friend actually owns the cherry blossom scent and she is in love with what it does for her hair especially when she wears it straight. I personally do not find use for it mostly because it dries out my curly extensions and I do not need a dry shampoo right now. But maybe in the future I will be using it.

I am in love with this cream!! I love that it is moisturizing but not greasy, I love that it comes in a tube so its viscosity is perfect for my skin type, not too thick, not too watery. It is great for combination skin during harsh winter nights. I am so glad I was sent this!

RATING OF THE BAG: 3/5
Cost of bag: $27.95
Total worth (to me): $28.68
After calculating all the products I liked vs. hated etc. The total worth of the bag seems to be about the price I paid (including shipping). I think this is OK at least it is not lower than what I paid. However, I still think beauteque is an awesome subscription bag because you at least get to pick 3 items which is quite nice. I signed up late so I did not get to pick my three items for this month (which may or may not have contributed to the rating? maybe?). SO a 3/5 is not bad. Definitely looking forward to February's bag.
have you tried Beauteque? how was your January bag?Thanks for reading!!
