[Unboxing] Beauteque – Mystery Raffle Bag

Mystery Boxes are my Wallet’s Doom.

I love surprises. So when I spotted the “Mystery Raffle Bundle” on the Beauteque Instagram I was instantly doomed to be opening the wallet.
 
There was absolutely no clue as to what you could get, so it truly was a surprise when I opened up the box today! Every box was potentially different, so I hope you find this review insightful as to what kind of product you could expect in a future mystery box from Beauteque.
 
My first thought was “green?!”
Read on to find out why.

                               Skinfood Watermelon Embossing Cleansing Tissue
 
RRP$13
 
Purchase Here
Ingredients
Water, Propylene Glycol, Alcohol, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, PPG-2-Deceth-12, Polysorbate 80, Fragrance, Chlorphenesin
 
Thoughts
Would I pay $13 for cleansing tissues normally? Probably not. Am I happy to see these? Yes!
They smell like watermelon and feel fresh and soft on my skin. I’ve already opened this up and used them. I don’t think they’re strong enough to take make up off, and I’ll stick to my double cleansing routine. But to freshen up in the morning or when I get home from work and need to feel clean quickly they’re great.

                   Beyond Jeju Bamboo 96% Soothing Gel
RRP$16
 
Purchase Here
 
Ingredients
Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Alcohol Denat., Centella Asiatica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Panthenol, Glycerine, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Propanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Water, Fragrance
 
Thoughts
This gel contains 96% Bamboo extract and promises to soothe and leave skin moisturised. I have very few brands from Beyond, so was intrigued to see this in the bag. Beyond is against animal testing and this particular product is in recyclable packaging. So it’s not just the colour green but is also green!
This product is just in time for summer and would make a great soothing gel for my freshly shaven legs.

Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 90% Body Cream
 
RRP$6.90
 
Purchase Here
Beauteque
Ingredients
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (90%), Glycerin, Mineral Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Steareth-2, Steareth-21, Water, Carbomer, Butyrospermum Parki (Shea Butter), Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Parfum, Sodium Hydroxide, Wanthan Gum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium Edta, Ethylhexyl Methoxcinnamate
 
Thoughts
Nature Republic is a well known Korean Beauty brand. In terms of their aloe vera products they’re probably more well known for their gel rather than this body cream. This is the first time I’ve actually seen this body cream. Aloe Vera is great for soothing skin and moisturising, if you have sensitive skin this is usually a safe ingredient for you. My only issue is that I already received the bamboo gel. I know it’s a mystery bag but would have been nice to get a bit more variety.

Beauteque Dual Fiber Contour Brush
RRP$9
 
Purchase Here
Beauteque
 
Thoughts
First non green item! I’ve actually received this brush in the past, in a Beauteque Bag. The colour is great, and it’s a sturdy handle. But I prefer my Body Shop brushes. This is a good basic beginner brush, so I’ll be saving it as a gift for someone starting their journey into make up.

A’pieu Color Longwear Shadow – BE02

RRP$11
 
Purchase Here
Beauteque
 
Ingredients
Couldn’t find
 
Thoughts
So this promises to be a smudge-proof, water-proof eye shadow stick. I got this shade in BE02, which is a golden desert colour. I actually love this colour as it’ll work well in a natural look, particular for trips to the beach. Here’s to hoping that it’ll leave up to its claims!

Thoughts
Dear lord that’s a lot of ingredients for such a tiny bottle! This is a creamy blusher which comes in 6 different shades. I got WH01, which from swatches online looks to be too lightly pigmented to give a blush but works well as a highlighter. This actually is to my benefit as I already have many blushers but not too many highlighters!

Altogether the value of the goods did exceed what I paid, by Beauteque prices. I could potentially find these cheaper online and I wasn’t too happy that there was an Aloe Vera Cream and a Bamboo gel.
But I am very happy with the Skinfood cleansing tissues which I wouldn’t have otherwise bought for myself, and looking forward to trying out the A’Pieu Highlighter.
My suspicion is that these are the leftover products from unpurchased Beauteque BB Bags. Which I don’t mind as I liked most of them, but that’s something to keep in mind.
Don’t regret my purchase and will probably be hooked again if they do this bundle once more.
Love Sophie

  2. I know I'm not the one opening the package, but even I felt a bit dissapointed when I saw a 90% aloe cream right after the super green 96% babmboo gel (which mostly reminded me of nature republic in the first place, haha). I'm sure you can find use for both of them, though! 🙂
