I don’t do beauty subscriptions. I used to in the past, and I found them to be a waste of money. I won’t lie though, it was really exciting at first! I liked getting a range of new products to try out. But I quickly found that I wasn’t even interested in the products to begin with, and most of them would lay unused. I think I just know what I like – I mean, my base makeup and skincare has barely changed in three years, and the only thing that does is my eye makeup and lipstick.
I saw someone on Snapchat not too long ago talking about Facetory, a Korean sheet mask subscription service. It piqued my interest since it’s such a niche category when it comes to subscriptions, and the results from sheet masks are pretty straightforward. It comes in a package of four “drugstore” masks (four-ever fresh) or seven higher end ones (seven lux). I got the four-ever fresh package since I don’t use sheet masks (or any masks tbh) often.
The four-ever fresh package totals to $6 with shipping, so it breaks down to $1.50 a mask. I was a bit surprised that they came in a plastic mailer bag than a box, when the website says box. Maybe it’s a box for the seven lux package? I prefer it this way anyway, it takes up less waste and space (see what I did there, hehe).
An introduction card is included and there’s information on each sheet mask, as well as a general guide for using them. It’s especially helpful for people like me who have no idea what’s supposed to go on before and after masking!
If you’re just getting introduced to sheet masks or enjoy a sheet mask every now and then, I’d definitely recommend Facetory! It’s less expensive than getting sheet masks at regular beauty retailers from where I live. I think it also makes a good gift since it’s inexpensive and practical. If I were already an enthusiast though, I’d skip this and go straight to buying in bulk online from Korean retailers.
