The bag came with this information card, which included directions for each product (many of the labels did not have much English so this was helpful) as well as the products’ intended effects. There was one substitution this month, hence the crossed out line on the information card.
Rilakkuma x A’Pieu Jelly Brightening Cleansing Foam (130 mL) – Value $9.95
This packaging is seriously adorable. This is a clear, viscous gel that does foam up some when you wash your face with it. I would probably use this most often as the second step in a two-step cleansing routine, although I tried it out and it removed a full face of makeup, so it can multitask. This has konjac root extracts, which I think helps to thicken the formula, although it is difficult to search for the properties because all that turns up are sites about konjac sponges. This also has lotus extract for brightening.
Etude House Pink Vital Water Emulsion (0.5 fl oz) – Value $1.28
This has a lot of soothing ingredients like purslane, plus plenty of vitamins (E, C, the beta-carotene version of A) and peach bud extract, which has humectant (moisturizing or moisture-retaining) properties. You can use this before or after serum. I found it to be gentle and definitely moisturizing and to absorb well.
A’Pieu My Little Mascara Power Volume – Value $2.07
This was the substitute item this month. I put it on Saturday morning and went out to run errands. It stayed in place all day and didn’t irritate my eyes, even though my eyes are sensitive, I wear contact lenses, and I had a pretty bad cold. So that is a win in my book. It gives more of an everyday look than a dramatic look, but that is fine by me.
Medicox France Perpetual Prodigy Rejuvenating Masque – Value $4.12
This is the first European product I’ve received in this subscription. The mask, itself, fit quite well (maybe the mouth was a little big, but it covered the sides of the face better than most) and stayed in place. I used this on a Sunday morning and didn’t use any other skincare products afterwards, and I am still enjoying firmed, toned, non-oily facial skin a few hours later. This claims to have “bio peptide” as an active ingredient, but as a biochemistry PhD, that phrase is pretty meaningless to me. Still, the mask had some nice effects!
Purederm Hydro Soothing Cucumber Pads – Value $3.90
I could only find these from eBay and Amazon. You actually get 10 of these little guys in there. I like to keep them in the refrigerator for extra soothing properties. I have had a bad cold lately and haven’t been sleeping well, so I have gotten puffy under my eyes. I think these are helping reduce the puffiness. These have cucumber, which I have always found to be soothing.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $21.32 for the September 2016 Miss Tutii TutiiBag. That is above the cost of the subscription and a fairly typical value. The variety of products in the box is fairly representative (one makeup, one sheet mask, one full size skincare, and a few others) of what you would receive every month. I loved the Medicox mask and will get a lot of use out of the cleanser, and all the products worked quite well for me this month, so I am happy.
