Beauteque Beauty Bag: New Korean Cosmetics Subscription *May Contain Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

omg - that is a straightening perm cream - running away in horror!

 

Yeah no way I'll use that, I can't imagine putting that into my hair. I don't know why of all the TM products that would be included. Everything else I use though. I am fairly new to Korean beauty, so picked this one up to see what other products are in this line, plus I've been wanting to try the Black sugar scrub.

 

I don't subscribe to this bag, just pick up an occasional bag here and there (like Miss Jexie's!), as I still have so many products I need to use up first. Plus I need to cancel some other subscription as I seem to have too many. Even have subs for my dog! I'm insane.

 

Thanks Miss Jexie for posting the spoilers!!

I don't quite understand it either.   I can understand a deep moisturizing treatment or something for your hair, but this....even if I had curly hair, the warnings on this product make me say "no way".  A nice foot scrub would have been nice to go along with the pumice stones....

Eesh..I didn't really look into the detail of the hair products before I ran out the door for work- I assumed that it was just a straightening treatment like you can grab at the drugstore from John Frieda or something lol. Maybe I won't be trying it out after all. My hair is thin and damaged enough as it is to risk putting something in it that could make it worse!

Also, I just want to mention to anyone that may have been confused or upset about myself and Saffyra discussing our Beauteque Bags here on the site: We were not compensated in any way, shape or form. Neither of us received a penny from the sales, and the only free thing we received was the bag itself for review purposes.

 

The only hand I had in the production of the bag was only choosing the products and nothing more than that. 

 

I've hidden any posts that have been reported, and apologize if any of you felt that it was unfair or against MuT rules for me to be discussing it- I was just really excited  :(

@@MissJexie I happened across your blog and missed the sale of your collab bag but got in for preorders. It looks amazing and I'm excited to get it XD

Thank you so much!! :D I'm actually going to check in with Beauteque tomorrow to see where they are at with the pre-ordered bags- I want to make sure everything is on track and that they'll be going out as soon as possible ^_^

No compensation here! Just the bag for review. And I got SUPER lucky because my first one got lost so they had to send me a second one and that's why I was able to do a giveaway with the first one when it eventually showed up.

 

I also am HORRIFIED by the inclusion of a straightening perm!!  Plus half the people don't have curly hair and that's a chancy item to put in to begin with AND it's the most expensive item in the bag.

 

I had to downgrade my bag-love because of it.  If it had been shampoo and conditioner I'd have loved the bag better (even though I hate getting hair product) just because it's a lot more usable by the average person...  Hair straightening kit? Not so much.  Urgh.

Ah....but do they work?

Of course not! I wish they did!!  But one of them is a nice moisturizer. :D  The other two... not so much.

Same here.  That hair product just tainted this bag for me.   I have to put up with those annoying hair packs (which I never use) but at least those are cheap.  I was shocked when I saw this product in here.

 

I watched a youtube demo on this and that is how I know it is a chemical straightening product.  It is very popular with the men, the 2 demos I found were done by men....

You're hard core! I read the back of the box and was like wtf?! Plus it has all these scary warnings, I wouldn't use it if you paid me to!

Yep...definitely passing this on to someone who is braver than I am lol I appreciate the research you did on it though- I figured it was just a straightening treatment but the ridiculous process alone was enough to make me not bother using it. Wash your hair, towel dry, apply first product and wait, rinse first product, blow dry hair on cool setting. Apply second product and wait, rinse second product, blow dry hair AGAIN. UHM...SERIOUSLY?? lol nooo thanks

Seriously what was Beauteque's thinking behind the hair straightening product inclusion!? A shampoo & conditioner for straight hair fine but a chemical process for straightening - urghh. That'll go straight in the bin as I already have poker straight hair (as does my Mum) and I don't think I'd even try and give it away. There's so many other Tony Moly products they could have included but shoved in that (probably got it for peanuts as a job lot). Not impressed

Wow glad I never chose that bag to buy . The hair products were a turn off just by looking at the photo. But seriously a chemical hair treatment is a Nono as its only suitable for a select few people.

I've been so busy with work lately I'm barely online much it's gone crazy stupid.

I've cut back on box subs and I'm not bothering with mask maven or genies box for the month . Totally using up all my cleanser stash at present . Some from memebox hit the bin as too harsh or not cleaning enough . Face creams I'm down too drastically as the skin is drinking them then I will only hit my bounce creams .

Ive read up on the threads here and caught up . And my snack subs are increasing in arrival is it bad I don't miss memebox arriving every 2 days. I look at them now well haven't the past month and think they have totally changed as a company .

I can't believe people think that blogger collab bags were being paid by commission on all the sales or have I read that wrong . Also seriously I've read the posts and all was done was happy chat and banter over their bag . Who wouldn't be happy and want people to know about it .

Do you think it is worth the time to send a message to beauteque and let them know about how wrong it was to include a hair perm kit in this bag? 

 

I don't want to be the only one witching about it - haha

i think those of you who bought it should do if it wasn't a product you can use, they need this kind of feed back from people so it doesn't happen again or go in a bag again, if people don't complain or give feedback think of the 100 people who bought the bag was upset and didn't speak up and think to themselves I'm not buying another bag from them again, and go elsewhere,business lost.

thanks @@Lorna ljblog - I did purchase my bag and paid for shipping (there was no free shipping on this puppy, even when I put in more products in my cart to get to $35.00!! ) 

 

I will email them.  I am sure all of my complaints do not endear me to beauteque - haha.

but that is the point constructive criticism , they need to understand the 90%off there customers don't have permed hair,, 

mine is short ,fine and very straight, a messy pixie cut, so its serums ,oils,masks and shampoo and conditioners and wax and creams that i would use , not a chemical perm straightener.

I've emailed them as well as its a useless product for a lot of folk and not what I would have expected from a Tony Moly bag (cute fruit items yes). It's expensive enough as it is getting the bags sent to the UK without having to chuck out stuff as its no use whatsoever.

 

(and I hadn't complained for a while about anything too...)

Nope, you read correctly. We had someone upset about us discussing the bags, however I think they were under the impression that we were getting commission for them- But you're right- we were both very excited about it and just wanted to share it with all our makeuptalk ladies! :)

 

I am in total agreement with you about the sub boxes. Even though we run blogs, sometimes i see my bank account draining and the products I'm getting are just stacking up to the rafters. Recently a new sub box offered me a generous coupon to try their service and even WITH the coupon I was like "hmm...I could get this box of nice stuff that I'll never use, or go out to dinner with my fiance..." While I will always get some sort of subscriptions for review purposes, I can't help but be relieved that I have less memeboxes pouring in my door. I FINALLY have the time and the focus to USE the products that I kept receiving! LOL ;)

 

As for the perm treatment, I really think it was one of two things: beauteque thought it was a straightening treatment and not a perm (similar to the john frieda straightening products) OR, they were able to get a large amount of them at a discount and didn't really pay attention to what it actually was...possibly a combination of the two. Either way, since it's the highest value item in the bag and cannot be used by the majority of people who got the bag, I can't help but feel like it was a waste :(

I'm going to email them about the hair product, as I just want to give them feedback. They were super nice about one bag I purchased, they had run out of the toner and let me pick another one. I am just going to let them know that I loved the other products, but the hair product is not something that many people can use. Just for any future bags they create, that kind of thing they may want to stay away from. I appreciate being able to try new products, but very few people could use a hair straightener.

I suggested that they change the future sales of this bag to allow a choice for that hair product.   If I hadn't of purchased it already and then saw Miss Jexie's spoilers, there is no way I would have gotten it.

btw - for those who got the essence lip balm - it smells like spiced apples!!  doesn't taste like it, but the scent is very nice.  I like their kiss kiss lip balms - I own the limited editions from sephora - the honey & blueberry - and think they make great little gifts too!

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing. 
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
