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.
So Leaf Anti-Wrinkle Vital BB Cream (50 mL) – Value $1.92
I am not finding an English ingredients list for this one. I will say, every time I have received a complexion-specific item from TutiiBag, it has been very light. Now, that is fine by me because I am the palest foundation shade, and so far the items (including this BB cream) have worked for me. But I am not sure how this would work for those with darker skin. At any rate, I’ve worn this a few times now and it gives a nice, light coverage and a bit of a dewy look (which is better on me than I thought it would be, and not reminiscent of an oil slick…).
A’Pieu All Kill Bond Pack Peel Off Type (60 mL) – Value $7.14
I was pretty conservative with this at first. Some products that say they remove hair can cause sensitivity or redness and I didn’t want to have to go to work the next day with irritated skin. I am pleased to report this did not cause any irritation (which is good, since I have no idea what’s in it). However, it is apparently supposed to remove facial hair and it did not. Perhaps I was using it on the wrong type of hair, or didn’t use enough? I’m not giving up. And I do like peel-off masks (this peeled off very nicely). If anyone has any tips, please let me know.
Here is a swatch of the BB Cream. This was a pretty good color for me.
Mamonde Lotus Micro Mild Foam (30 mL) – Value $4.38
This is a gentle cleanser that I have been using in the morning before an exfoliant. It does have a bit of a fragrance to it, but it foams nicely and hasn’t irritated my skin. I can’t find ingredients for this one either, but am going to go out on a limb and assume it includes lotus, which has a lot of B vitamins, vitamins A and C, antioxidants, and minerals. It may also help reduce inflammation. I have been having a handful of good skin days lately so I’m not seeing a huge effect, but it is an effective cleanser!
G9Skin White in Whipping Cream (5 mL) – Value $1.51
This is a thick, white cream. It supposedly has 9 whitening ingredients as well as milk protein extract and vitamin E. It is non-drying, but not as moisturizing as I expected based on the information card. I am pretty sure there is something in here that actually puts a white layer of pigment on the skin (like maybe titanium dioxide, as a guess) because there was definitely a whitish cast to my face after using. So, another item that may not work super well for those with darker skin tones.
Petitfee Resurrection Plant Soothing Gel Mask No. 2 – Value $0.62
This brand is new to me. Resurrection plant is a desert plant (actually, several plants are known by this name) that can survive very dry periods. I am guessing this has carbohydrate or glycoproteins that hold on to water under extreme conditions. This mask was a bit hard to unfold but conformed to my face well and did not drip. It was very moisturizing, which is nice for dry winter weather.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $15.57 for the December 2016 Miss Tutii TutiiBag. Of course, prices are all over the place for K-beauty products, but I do feel that is above the cost of the box, even if there is some variation in the prices of individual items. Everything in this box worked for me (well, I am still trying to figure out the best way to use the All Kill Bond Pack) or was at least fun to try, but it might not have been as good for someone with darker skin. (I do not remember filling out a survey when I signed up.)
