Tutiibag October 2017 Booklet Front

Tutiibag October 2017 Booklet Back

The bag came with this information card. They are back to providing directions for using the items again and I am happy for that. Although I am not sure what “Remove or the nose” means.

Also, please note that this is the October package.  It shipped a bit later than usual due to Korean Holiday (which is also noted on their website).

Tutiibag October 2017 Water

Monster Micellar Cleansing Water by Etude House (25 mL) – Estimated Value $2.08 (buy 300 mL for $24.90)

I like to use micellar water for getting those last traces of mascara off my face after cleansing. (This is a constant problem for me. Maybe I am not using the right makeup remover.) A little bit of this on a cotton ball did the trick (and without irritating my eyes). This one is free of animal-sourced ingredients and mineral oil!

Tutiibag October 2017 Patches

Secret Pure Nose Clear Patch Set by The Saem (8 pieces) – Retail Value $5.90 (found on sale here for $5.31)

I tried one of these out for the sake of the review but I’m probably saving the rest for next year. I am homebound for at least a month and a half after surgery so I am not using makeup right now and my skin is honestly looking better than usual. But clogged pores on my nose are often a problem for me under normal circumstances, so this is a useful item (and I love getting more than one to try out). I think this did help get some gunk out of my pores – my nose looked better after use.

Tutiibag October 2017 Mask

Eco Beyond Herb Garden Lotus Mask – Retail Value $4.90

This was kind of hard to unfold since it had a huge amount of essence, and it also took a very long time to dry on my face. Well, I have an excess of time right now so that is just fine. I suspect makeup might be a bit of a challenge after this, due to the serum drying time. So maybe save this for the evening. It did not have a strong scent and it was super moisturizing, though. It’s finally starting to get cold where I live and I’m rotating more moisturizing products into my skincare routine. Lotus extract is the key ingredient here; this is supposed to help control sebum production and also improve skin elasticity. I do think my skin was a little less oily than usual, a few hours after using this.

Tutiibag October 2017 Lotion

Petit Bijou Cotton Snow Moisture Body Lotion by Etude House (2 fl oz) – Estimated Value $2.94 (buy 300 mL for $14.69)

This has milk protein and chamomile, which are both very soothing. I am avoiding body lotions at the moment, post-surgery, but this absorbed into my hands very nicely and is helping smooth out my dry, rough skin.

Tutiibag October 2017 Eyelier

3W Clinic Auto Eyeliner Pencil – Retail Value $2.31 (found on sale here for $0.93)

We also received a black eyeliner last month, although this particular product is new to me. Getting it started took a bit of pressing but it really didn’t tug my skin at all once it was moving. The color is nice and dark and the formula seems non-irritating. It comes off pretty easily with standard makeup remover. As for the “no smearing” claim on the information card, well, my eyelids are so oily I always have to wear primer – I don’t know how this would behave without primer.

Tutiibag October 2017 Swatch

Here is a swatch of the eyeliner.

Verdict: I calculated a retail value of $18.13 for the October 2017 TutiiBag (less using sale prices). That is a little over the month-to-month cost of the box. Looking at it another way (since K-beauty prices are kind of all over the place), you are paying an average of $3 per item, which I think is reasonable for the sample sizes received this month, especially since you don’t have to meet order minimums and pay overseas shipping. I’m a little disappointed to get a black eyeliner for the second month in a row, but in general, I was pleased with the brands and item types and thought many of them were excellent choices for my skincare transition from fall to winter.

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

  1. I never got this bag, is anyone else having this problem? The tracking number says that they received the shipping info, but that’s it. I tried to contact them via their online form but never heard back, but then I noticed it was marked fulfilled on my account page. I’ve already received my November bag from them (I was kind of thinking they would just send me the October one with it, but no such luck) – I guess I need to dispute the charge with my debit card company now.

  2. Why is there a little girl on the nose patch package?

    • I wouldn’t read too much into it. K-beauty packaging is sometimes unusual.

  3. Ragan, I’m glad your surgery is done and that you are on the mend. I wish for you a smooth, simple, and complete recovery. I hope you are playing with beads when and as you can!

    • If by “playing with beads,” you mean filling up shopping carts at various websites with ridiculous quantities of items and then trying to convince myself not to enter my credit card number, yes, I’m doing that. =)

      But seriously, thanks. I think I am finally done with the serious painkillers and I expect other improvements to follow. It feels like WAAAAAAY more than a week has passed since the operation.

      • Haha… I did the same type of thing while recovering from surgery a few years back. The amount of stuff that can fit in an online shopping cart should be outlawed! Glad to hear you are progressing & sending you lots of positive vibes during your recovery!
