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.
Lador Hydro LPP Treatment (150 g) – Value $2.21
This is a hair mask. I love getting such a large amount; you really get a chance to try it a few times and see if it works for you. This includes collagen and other proteins, which are supposed to help with dry and processed hair. (It also has beta carotene but I’m not sure how that is going to affect hair other than that it might help avoid UV-induced damage.) The instructions on the package said to leave it in for 25 minutes under a shower cap but I didn’t have time for that. I just used it in the shower like I would for any other hair mask and I will say, my hair is pretty soft today.
Goodal Waterest Lotus Water Cleansing Tissue (20 sheets) – Value $1.27
I like Goodal products a lot and this was no exception. I’m not one for using wipes to remove foundation, but I found this gentle enough to use as a first-pass eye makeup remover. It was about as effective at this task as other wipes. This contains lotus extract, which can hydrate (I found that to be true) and potentially control sebum production (I think I’d need to use this for awhile to see effects in that area). Lotus extract also has lots of vitamins and other antioxidants.
TheSaem Pure Natural Mask Sheet (Snail Brightening) – Value $1.89
As you might expect, this contains snail secretion filtrate and is very moisturizing (but it’s not slimy). The mask sheet was excellent – fit around my mouth and eyes perfectly and it wasn’t too drippy. This also has some “white flower” extracts that are supposed to help with brightening, but I can’t find more information (in English) on those. At any rate, you’d have to use this periodically for a few weeks to see brightening effects.
TooCoolForSchool Coconut Milky Body Scrub (7g x 2) – Value $1.26
I love trying new scrubs and this was just enough for one shower. It had a lovely coconut scent and I am pretty sure the exfoliating particles were natural material based on the feel, although I tend to prefer harsher scrubs with a greater concentration of exfoliating particles. If you are looking for a gentler scrub, this could work.
It’s Skin Nail Styler Nudie – Value $1.17
You can see a swatch of this on the information card. I am not so much into nude or neutral nails – I tend to favor dark, bright colors. But, I have some sheer polishes that I think will look good if I use this as a base.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $7.80 for the February 2017 TutiiBag. Although that seems low, I want to offer a few cautions. First, the online shops linked to for most of these items are shipping directly from Korea, and I was finding shipping costs upwards of $23 for some of them. Also, wait times to receive the products can be as much as 2-5 weeks. So probably you should add at least a few dollars to the cost of each product to account for shipping costs and times. Finally, there are not consistent suppliers of some of the items in the U.S., so there is a convenience factor involved. ou don’t want to buy something, sight unseen, from Korea, pay $20+ for shipping, wait a month to get it, and then find out you don’t like it; the subscription simplifies this aspect of things. (Alternatively, you can look for some of the products on Amazon instead of directly from Korea – the Goodal tissues there are $7.99.) So, although the value seems low, there are a lot of additional factors to consider that may increase the value of this subscription.
For my part, I am happy with the mix of items from the box. While I was familiar with some of the brands, the items were new to me, and I am thinking the hair mask is going to do some really great things for my hair.
