Hi FaceTory Fam! It was such a pleasure to meet everyone at the Lavi Launch! Who was excited to see Lavendaire’s launch of her new books ANDFaceTory sheet masks at the same time? In her mini workshop, she had many words of wisdom and tips to share! Specifically, she placed emphasis that our strengths and passions goes hand in hand; We must identify our strengths in order to leverage our passions. FaceTory supports her message in following our dreams and encourage you to be proactive in eliminating what holds you down and ultimately finding what you love. In relations to her message, FaceTory’s mission and dream is to provide you with the right knowledge and help you find products that work for you! At the event, our head curator sincerely enjoyed talking to everyone and sharing tips on sheet masking and skincare. Most importantly, we noticed you were all so kind and positive. We truly hope you all keep that positive energy glowin!
Congratulations Aileen on your Artist of Life Workbook and Create Today Planner!
FaceTory was able to chat with Youtuber Aja Dang about the collaboration and self-confidence in her lovely Los Angeles home. Check out the video below:
Belinda from FaceTory: Hi Everyone! My name is Belinda and I’m the marketing assistant at FaceTory and today we’re with the lovely Aja Dang! So exciting. She’s a YouTuber, model, blogger, actress and more. I really love your videos because you’re all about being your best self whether it is like mentally, physically, emotionally, and also financially too, which I really appreciate because a girl needs to have her budget in line. Also you’re a big advocate when it comes to women and animal rights which is amazing. We’re so excited because we are having a super special collaboration! In this video, we’re going to be asking Aja a few questions about the collaboration, curation, and some fun questions about how she glows up. Q&A Belinda: What are your favorite ways to practice self-care? Aja: I think self-care obviously beauty-wise I like to take baths because I lock the dogs out, no one talks to me, and I just relax. I like to sheet mask, obviously, it’s something that I really enjoy doing for 20-30 minutes and can do whatever I want, I’m just in the zone. But mentally as well I like to hangout with my friends, my boyfriend, and my dogs and surround myself with people who makes me happy and do things that make me happy. Belinda: Next question, so if you were stranded a deserted island, what is your must-have product? Aja: Sunscreen. Belinda: YES. Especially for the skincare girls out there. We all know sunscreen is like a foundation for everything. Aja: Yeah, I mean you may be stranded but hopefully one day you’ll be rescued looking like a raison so you have to wear that sunscreen. Belinda: What are your favorite masks in this box? Aja: The Meg. Mask is one of my favorite. For me what’s really important for me is just keeping my skin more moisturized and this is the moisturizing mask. I really love this one and it’s really fun. And then of course the FaceTory, Glow Baby Glow Mask! It’s another multi-step one which of course I love and this is a brightening one so it’s for when my skin is really really dull and like, meh. Because I like to sheet mask at night, next morning when I’m just sparkly. Super glowy. And finally, this is all in the lux box by the way, when you get seven sheet masks. The Seaweed Silky Mask by 23 Years Old. I just think the texture of sheet masks for me is really important and this one is so smooth, shiny, and seaweedy and it smells luxurious. This is probably the more unique masks that I’ve ever tried and I’m really excited for you guys to try it too! Belinda: During the curation process, what are some of the things that you’ve considered with the masks that you’ve chose? Aja: Products that are cruelty free are really important to me. I don’t use any products that test on animals. That was the first and foremost. We also have masks in here that are vegan, but all of them are cruelty-free. I have a lot of followers who are vegan and find that important as well so I wanted to include vegan options for them in the boxes as well. But also what I look for beauty products in general are things that are brightening and moisturizing and that gives you that natural glow from within. Belinda: The theme for this month is “Glow Up Sis” and we’re just wondering what does that mean to you to glow up? Aja: To me, “glow up” means physically just means, brightening and youthful looking and happy, but also inside it means glowing up from within so exuding confidence, exuding self-love and just putting all of that out into the universe. Belinda: I personally love how you’re so real in your videos and you're so vulnerable in that you’re able to show your life whatever it is whether it is financially or mentally, your ideas about things, any tips on how you are able to stay so confident, secure in your ideas, and expressing yourself in that way? Aja: I find that a lot of people are afraid to share about themselves. Just because they feel like they’re going to be judged. But I just don’t have that chip in me. I don’t care what other people think, but also find that once I do share those darker secrets, things that people don’t want to share about, like finances---doing that, sharing something so important automatically gives you confidence. It gives you the sense that you’re owning your own stuff and that inherently will give you the self-confidence you need to tackle it or continue to talk about it. But also honestly turning thirty gave me an extra sense of confidence, self-awareness at least. Sense of self. Belinda: Yeah, just do you and your you. Aja: I find as long as you are authentically yourself, you will draw in like-minded people so that’s why I think that my YouTube community is a community of really positive people because that’s kind of the energy and the people I draw towards my channel by being myself. Belinda: Final question, anything super special that you want to mention about this box? Aja: Know that this has been a long process from the start: Picking out the designs, picking out the sheet mask, doing everything from start to finish. We’ve taken a lot of time and thought into the box and kit so we just hope that you enjoy it because it’s full of our love. If you’d like to see more of Aja Dang visit her YouTube and Instagram!

It’s finally October and we are so excited to reveal one of our biggest collaborations after months of hard work! We collaborated with skincare queen and multi-talented Youtuber Aja Dang for our October Seven Lux and Four-ever Fresh Kit. If you have never met Aja, she is one of the most down to earth and genuine influencers you’ll ever meet.
This was a several month long process of curation and design. She worked with our design team and mask curation team throughout the whole process to make a box that truly reflected both her passion for sheet masks and her persona. She personally tested every sheet mask to make sure it gave her hydrated healthy skin and that it worked for sensitive skin.
Our team creates a theme we want to focus on every month. This month, Aja and FaceTory are so proud to support the importance of self-confidence with the slogan, “Glow up Sis”!
“Glow up Sis to me is more than just a face thing, more than just a beauty thing, it’s more in fact is this confidence thing, and once you exude this confidence, I find that people around you kind of gravitate toward you and in fact get that confidence they need for themselves from you..” - Aja Dang
Her box contains all cruelty-free masks and even some vegan options as well. For those who are interested in all vegan masks, be sure to check out the FOUR-ever FRESH with 4 masks. This pack is great for those who are beginners and want to get started in sheet masking before leveling up to our full plan.
Our SEVEN LUX Box comes with 7 amazing sheet masks with each focusing on different skin needs. Here are few of Aja’s and our favorites:
If you ever need a little extra moisturizing and brightening this season, grab Gloderm TABRX Whitening Mask. It not only comes with a flexible brightening mask but an oil capsule that helps to further nourish and moisturize dry skin. Perfect for night time to wake up with refreshed skin.
For those of you who want to try the newest K-Beauty sheet masks, don’t miss out on 23 Years Old Seaweed Silky Mask. This mask not only comfortably covers your entire face but also covers your mouth, bringing you a sheet mask and lip mask in one! Also if you’re worried about premature wrinkles, seaweed is a great anti-aging ingredient! It’s never too late to start on an anti-aging regime.
Battling with flakiness and bumpy skin? Grab the Meg Two Step Jelly Mask Moisturizing & Vitalizing Mask. It comes with a pre-mask step of an AHA peeling swab to gently remove up dead skin cells smoothing out bumps and flakiness.
