FaceTory Review: Everything You Need to Know About This Korean Sheet Mask Subscription Box

My love for face masks expands beyond what I can muster.

Whether I'm stressed or just need to take some time out of my day, face masking as part of my daily skincare routine can elevate my mood in 20 minutes or less. So you can imagine how excited I was to find FaceTory, a monthly Korean sheet mask subscription box.

Now, Korean face masks are often difficult to find. Well, good ones are, especially if you want to understand what they do and why they're good for your skin. I typically learn about ones that I like when I'm overseas and then continue buying them on Amazon, but not everyone has that luxury.

Luckily, FaceTory makes the process of discovering new masks simple. They bring the best curated sheet masks right to your doorstep each month, making the process convenient, fun, and informative.

I Tried FaceTory's SEVEN LUX August 2018 Box—Here's What Happened

Now that we have the basics down, we can get to the FaceTory review. I was sent the August 2018 SEVEN LUX Box, and in case you couldn't tell, I was incredibly pleased.

The August 2018 box was summer themed, meaning the colors were bright, fun, and the curated masks were perfect for post-sun care.

Each box contains a card that breaks down the masks, detailing the ingredients and benefits. You can truly learn about each product, which is so great since the packaging is almost entirely in Korean.

For the SEVEN LUX Box, I also received a few special face masks that required extra steps. FaceTory took the liberty of writing down the instructions on the card, which was super helpful after I tore directly into the mask without reading the instructions on the back first.

The box also contained cute summer-themed stickers and a general tip sheet on face masking.

As for the sheet masks themselves, I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of each mask.

Here's a breakdown of each mask:

  • FaceTory Sun Bae Sooting Mask (Restores skin after a sunny day)
  • Liitru I'm Sorry For My Skin S.O.S. Jelly Mask (Soothes skin after being in the sun for too long)
  • Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask Wheat & Celery (Removes impurities from your skin)
  • Shionle Pore & Spot Care Mask (Contains antioxidants for trouble skin)
  • Jeu'Demeure Aqua Mask (Keep skin balanced and hydrated)
  • Medius Ampoule Synergy Mask Lifting Plus (Exfoliates, softens, and soothes skin)
  • Adaline Keep Cool and Ocean Mask (Keeps skin cool and hydrated)

Clearly, each mask fit the theme in their own way, while providing a variety of skin treatments for you throughout the month.

But wait, there's more.

If you love one of the masks enough, you can go to FaceTory's site to repurchase individual masks. You won't have to worry about whether or not you like the product or if the site you're buying from is sketchy. It's just great face masks. Plain and simple.

Face Masking Tips From FaceTory

  1. Wash your face & apply toner beforehand

  2. Never leave the mask on until it is dried up (This can reverse the great benefits!)

  3. Take time to smooth out any wrinkles of the mask

  4. Apply moisturizer after to lock in the essence

  5. Leave some sheet masks in the fridge to use on days when your skin is very inflamed and irritated (Plus it feels super nice!)
