Give Your K-Beauty a Super Fruit Upgrade

Give Your K-Beauty a Super Fruit Upgrade
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every now and again a surprise package shows up at my door. It makes me feel like a kid on their birthday. You can imagine my excitement when FaceTory unexpectedly sent me their Lux Plus box to review. Because I had so much fun with their March 7 Lux Box, I couldn’t wait to try out some new Super Fruit infused K-Beauty products.

Get Your Super Fruit Glow On

When I opened my Lux Plus Box, I was intrigued by array of products. We have a full size cleanser, serum, and konjac sponge, as well as three sheet masks, and a mini hand cream set. All of which feature super fruit botanicals as part of their ingredient lists.

In addition to the products, the box also comes with a handout guide that provides details about each item. I especially like the key ingredient and direction sections.  It is a nice, helpful bonus.

The Lotus Jeju Botanical pH Balancing Cleanser
Super Fruit The Lotus Cleanser

One of the first products I gravitated towards was The Lotus Cleanser. I’m a sucker for beautifully designed packaging like the one featured on the cleanser box. I was also intrigued by the key ingredients of Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract. I had a sneaking suspicion I was going to love this cleanser thanks to my previous use of aloe vera based products. They are so hydrating and nonirritating on my sensitive, dry skin.

My instincts were correct. This gel to foam cleanser leaves my skin balanced and free of impurities without feeling stripped of moisture. It’s so gentle and works exceptionally well with the konjac sponge.

Like the aloe based cleanser, I’ve also used a Konjac Sponge before. It’s such a unique tool. Made from the konjac root, the sponge naturally cleanses and exfoliates your skin. While it’s ideal for acne prone skin, it can be used on all skin types because it very mildly exfoliates and removes dirt and oil.

I use it once or twice a week to help give my skin an extra boost of dead skin removal and cleansing. You can use the sponge alone or add a cleanser to it. I like to pair it with The Lotus Cleanser for a nice super fruit treatment. Once I’m done, I rinse out the sponge and place it in a konjac container I have from Julep. This helps keep it protected and from drying out.

Puregen Multi Collagen Power Lifting Serum

Next up in the land of super fruit, we have the Puregen serum. I don’t know how I lived without serums before incorporating them into my skincare routine. They really do make a huge difference, and this serum is no exception. It’s both lightweight and very nourishing.

Puregen Super Fruit Serum Use

With key ingredients like Hydrolyzed Collagen and Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, my skin gets a boost of hydration, as well as anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. My skin absolutely loves this serum, and I love how soft and nourished it feels all day and all night.

Super Fruit Sheet Masks
Super Fruit Infused Facial Masks

As I mentioned above, in addition to full size skincare products, the Lux Plus box also comes with 3 sheet masks. This time I received the Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask 2x Raspberry Lentil, Huangjisoo Centella Repairing Mask, and the FaceTory Let’s Talk Vitality Mask. I enjoyed treating my skin to all three.

First up, I used the Centella Mask, which features Centella Asiatica and Tremella Fuciformis Extract. These ingredients help heal and protect, while also brightening and evening out skin tone. The mask does have a strong floral, fruit scent, but it’s not so overpowering that it makes hard to wear for the suggested 15-20 minutes. It fit my face well and left my skin feeling refreshed, hydrated, and very soft.

Next, I used The FaceTory Let’s Talk Vitality Mask.  This mask features Punica Granaturn Fruit Extract and Shea Butter. These ingredients help soften the skin, while also delivering anti-oxidant rich properties that help reduce the signs of aging.

K-Beauty Facetory Mask Wear

Of the three masks I tried, this one was my favorite. I like the thick consistency of the mask, which helped it adhere well to my face. It was also very cooling and left my skin feeling soft and hydrated and looking plump.

Finally, we have the Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask. This unique mask features a nourishing Raspberry and Lentil filled essence, which helps your skin fight off free radicals. The essence also works to brighten and tighten skin, while increasing hydration.

Though it does take a little more effort to mix the essence with the mask, it’s also kind of fun. I did have some issues getting the mask to align and adhere to my face. While the mask was soothing, it did feel a  little intense on my skin. However, I did love seeing how glowy my face looked after I took the mask off.  

Duft & Doft Mini Hand Creams Set
K-Beauty Mini Hand Creams

Finally we have the super fruit packed mini hand cream set. As someone who can’t be without hand cream, most of the time, I am happy to have these in my collection. I keep one in my purse and another in my car.

The set includes four hand creams in four different scents. There is a nice range of fruity, floral, and musky, which I like. What I appreciate most is the texture. Formulated with shea butter and collagen, all of the hand creams are super hydrating without being greasy. I especially appreciate this when I’m in the car. I know I can apply my hand cream and not have to worry about my hands sliming up the steering wheel.

And bonus, they also help to reduce the signs of aging. I really like this because your hands are one of the first parts of your body to show age.

I’m so glad FaceTory sent me their Lux Plus box to try. It’s an affordable way to try unique K-Beauty products. I’m really loving the Super Fruit theme of this box and the results I’ve experienced with all the products.

As moms, we tend to forget about our own wants and needs. Actually, we tend to take care of our needs instead of our wants. We also focus on our families and their needs before our own.

It is never too late to treat yourself to a bit of luxury! It doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. There are easy ways to do it.

I don’t know about you but I love summer! I love the sun, the warm weather and breathing in the fresh air. Every spring and summer, I am reminded to change up my skincare routine.

I tried my first anti-aging product when I was in my late 20s, around the time I started Beauty Brite. An Olay anti-wrinkle cream was the first product I ever tried. I really believe that without my blog, I would have never been able to try as many brands and products. I also depend on fellow bloggers to introduce me to products.

With every season change, I am reminded to evaluate my makeup and skincare products. I like to use products that work with the weather. In the winter, I tend to use moisturizing products that protect my skin at night. In the summer, I like to use fewer skin care products that allow my skin to breathe in the hot weather.

Treat Your Skin To Luxurious and Cruelty-Free Skincare

Treat Your Skin To Luxurious and Cruelty-Free Skincare -- TwinMedix

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Transparency is the new trend; throughout modern society, people are endeavoring to learn more about what they’re eating, what they’re wearing (did you know that, according to a recent mindbodygreen article, one fast-fashion T-shirt “uses 700 gallons of water” to be made?!), and where their trash is going (check out The Story of Stuff for more on that subject). The beauty world is also following this trend by heading down the vegan and cruelty-free road. While “vegan” does not necessarily mean perfect, its “cruelty-free” partner is usually the tagline that actually sells me on a product.
