The bag came with this information card, which included directions for each product (the labels were not in English so this was helpful) as well as the products’ intended effects.


Shiseido Medicated Hand Cream (30 g) – Value $3.50 (on sale for $3.20)

This product is from Japan.

This doesn’t smell like medicated hand cream, which is a big plus (think Gold Bond…).  It has little beads in it that help with massage and exfoliation.  This moisturizes with urea, vitamin E, and xylitol (so keep it away from your dog as xylitol is toxic to dogs).  It’s a pretty good hand cream; I’ve been using it at night because my hands are in bad shape from cleaning the house (had family coming to town).

Laneige Clear-C Advanced Effector (15 mL) – Value $3.90

This product is from Korea.

This has a slight fruity scent and is super watery.  I’ve been applying it with a cotton pad (apparently this is what is recommended anyway).  An effector is slightly different from an essence, but I don’t think I can keep track of all the steps in the most complicated Korean skincare routines, so I have been using it when I would otherwise use an essence (in other words, between toner and serum).

It is 92.5% berry extracts (acerola cherry and acai) and is high in vitamin C, so it has pretty powerful antioxidants to help fight free radical damage.

Skin Food Black Bean Eyebrow Pencil (full size) – Value $1.80

This product is from Korea.

I think you could have received an eyeliner pencil instead.  An eyebrow pencil is fine for me.  I have overplucked eyebrows going way back and I do need to learn to fill them in.  This can come in several different colors but I don’t know if the color varied in TutiiBags.

Black bean extract in this product is supposed to prevent eyebrow fallout.  It is too soon to tell if that is working, but it was never a big problem for me in the first place.  But, it’s something to keep in mind if that is a concern for you.  (I am really bad at doing my brows…)


Here’s a closer look at the pencil.


Inner Kallia Special Care Modeling Pack for Oily Skin – Value $3

This product is from Korea.

This would be enough for more than one use if I had any skill at all in preparing modeling packs for application.  But I ALWAYS use too much water and have to keep adding product to compensate.

It’s a bit difficult to tell what’s in here (the descriptions online all talk about vegetable matter), but this did seem to help with oil control and I was actually able to get it to peel off, which was nice.  So I guess I didn’t put it on too thick.

Note: When you sign up for TutiiBag, you choose from several available skin types.  So you will see a lot of products for oily skin in my reviews because that’s the skin type I chose.  There may be variations I haven’t seen for people who choose dry skin instead.

Skin Food Fresh Celery Cleansing Tissue (15 ct) – Value $1.79

This product is from Korea.

These smell pretty herbal but in a good (i.e., clean) way.  I used them to take off eye makeup and they worked pretty well.  They didn’t get off the last bit of mascara, but they got everything else and they were gentle and non-irritating.

Unfortunately, someone posted a product description of this on a website somewhere that was meant for a lip gloss and it has been propagated online so nearly every site where this is sold talks about lip gloss with this product listing.  So I can’t find out much about the ingredients.  But this product works well to take off most makeup, and it doesn’t irritate my skin, so I’m happy with these.


Here is a swatch of the eyebrow pencil.  I had to press a bit hard and go back and forth a few times.  I think this might be a good eyebrow product for me to start with since the effects are pretty light.  And because I have my hair dyed black so dark eyebrows wouldn’t look out of place.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $14 for the April 2016 Miss Tutii Bag.   However, prices were all over the place and it could be more or less.  It is a little less than the cost of the subscription, as-is, and while I’ve heard of most of the brands, the products were new to me.  This has consistently been a fun subscription to receive and I’ve discovered a lot of new products, which is great.  This is a somewhat low value month but other months have been higher so it will average out if you subscribe for a few months.

What did you think of the April 2016 Miss Tutii Bag?  Do you get any K-Beauty or Asian Beauty subscriptions?

  1. I am not sure where to post this, but I would love to see a k drama box, in fact, if I lived in Korea I think I would start one. As popular as things like dream fever are, I am surprised no one has done this….don’t worry my idea is free, hope to see some one run with it soon!! ?

  2. Yay another “international” Tutti bag that’s Korea + 1 other east Asian country….

    Good review though!
