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.

tutiibag-january-2017-masks

Goodal Water Full Mask (firming) – Value $0.43

I like Goodal products (my favorite are the Refine Pore Tightening Essence and the Phytoshine Acaiberry Brightening Cream). This is the first time I’ve tried one of their sheet masks. This was a very flexible and soft mask with a lot of essence (but it wasn’t drippy). Various types could be sent. I got “firming,” which has collagen. Of course this isn’t actually being absorbed into your skin (it’s too big on a molecular scale) but it hangs onto a lot of water at the surface of the skin so it is moisturizing. Also, I used this in the morning and it didn’t interfere with makeup application, although it did take a few minutes for the essence to dry.

(On price, by the way, I found everything from the listed price to $2, it really depends on the source. It seems cheaper coming directly from Korea, but then you may have a minimum order, shipping fees, and a long wait to receive your order.)

Milatte Raccoon Eye Mask – Value $0.63

This is another one where prices are all over the place. This one has hyaluronic acid and snail secretion filtrate for moisture. (It is also supposed to diminish dark circles but since I don’t have dark circles, I can’t speak to that.) I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately so my eyes are a bit puffy, though. I used this last night and it was pretty soothing and moisturizing. I think it would also work well if you put it in the refrigerator first.

tutiibag-january-2017-toner

Skinfood Yuja Water Toner (80 mL) – Value $12

Yuja is a citrus fruit common in Japan and Korea. This toner does have a slight citrus scent (although it is clear, just the bottle is yellow). This is refreshing and I do think I feel a little tightening of the skin (I mean that in a good way) when I use it. It does have some alcohol, but my skin puts up with that, and it also contains niacinamide so over time, I hope to see some brightening.

Etude House Pink Vital Water Cream (10 mL) – Value $3.40

I feel like I’ve received another product from this line before, but I can’t remember what it was. Anyway, this has a nice cream texture (a little less thick than most sleeping packs) and absorbs easily. It is very moisturizing and, even though it contains a few silicones, it doesn’t make my face look oily. It has vitamins including A, C, and E as well as purslane extract, which I find quite soothing. Also, this did not interfere with makeup application and did not make my face greasy at night.

tutiibag-january-2017-essence

3W Skin Collagen Whitening Essence (50 mL) – Value $3.76

If I could choose one skincare item that I don’t get enough of in subscription boxes, it would be essences. I like them and use one twice per day so I was happy to see this. Like the toner, this has niacinamide for brightening and evening out skin tone, plus it has marine (read: fish) collagen for moisture and a few plant extracts. This is a translucent white thin gel kind of substance and it absorbs into the skin super easily. I’m hoping to see some results in a few weeks (there really is a lot of product here).

I should point out, and I don’t know if this was intentional, but using the toner, essence, and cream from this month all together has been wonderful. My face feels toned and firm but not at all dry.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $20.22 for the January 2017 TutiiBag. It could be higher or lower because K-beauty prices are kind of all over the place. I do feel like it was worth the price of the subscription, though. All of these products were new to me (though I knew most of the brands already) and I was particularly pleased about how well the three multi-use skincare items seem to work together.

What did you think of the January 2017 TutiiBag? Do you get any K-Beauty or Asian Beauty subscriptions?

  1. I checked that site because that mask was so cheap and added a bunch of quality masks for really cheap in my cart. Went to check out and cheapest shipping is like $10, so if you can find it anywhere for only .40 without high shipping, let me know. I’d say the mask is probably worth at least a couple bucks when it comes down to it. I like this sub but I’m gonna try the new facetory sub first and save me a bit of money since I love sheet masks. I’m loving memebox too right now. 😉

  2. I am very disappointed. I have cancelled my subscription. I never got my December bag so they were supposed to send me the January bag. I never got it or a tracking number. I contacted them and they said I will get this week but would not give me tracking info. I got my January bag today but it is not the bag that’s been reviewed. And it is for the oily skin profile not the dry. I got cucumber pads that i got a couple months ago. Neogence mask, tonymoly mascara, mamonde emulsion and oil control toner. I am dry as a desert. I am really unhappy. I should have gotten the January bag like everyone else and they didn’t even send my bday gift that i should have gotten in Decembers bag.

    • This is the oily skin version. I definitely would’ve picked that over dry when I signed up.

  3. I am interested in ordering from your box what will be coming for February ..

  4. The pink vital cream was in an earlier Miss Tutsi bag. aside from the difference in packaging is that the first one sent was an emulsion and this appears to be the full moisturizer. I like them both for hydration either way.
