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....

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!

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
