About Miss Tutii TutiiBag

The Subscription Box: Miss Tutii TutiiBag

The Cost: $16.95/month + free US shipping. Save with 6 and 12-month prepaid subscriptions. 

Good to know: Charges for TutiiBag recently started coming from Ontario, so you may also get a foreign transaction fee (mine is 40 cents but that depends on the bank) if you are in the US. For what it’s worth, though new subscriptions cost $16.95, I’ve been a subscriber for awhile and am still getting charged $15 per month.

The Products: 4-5 full-size or deluxe samples of popular skincare products, masks, and other beauty items from Asia!

Ships to: U.S. (free), Canada ($5.95), International ($10.95)

Tutiibag March 2018 Review

You usually get a pretty good mix of different skincare items and tools and sometimes a makeup item with this subscription. One sheet mask is also typically included:

The bag came with this information card. It didn’t actually have any product details although the items were easy to figure out this time:

Tonymoly Pro Clean Soft Cleansing Tissue

Tonymoly Pro Clean Soft Cleansing Tissue – Estimated Value $1.23 (buy 10 packs for $12.31)

I can’t find the wipe count anywhere on this package but am assuming it to be 15 based on past experience and overall package size. I tend to use Clinique “Take the Day Off” dual phase makeup remover as it works better for me than other products, but these do all right. I sometimes have to go back over the under eye area with micellar water or toner to remove transferred mascara, but these do take off lipstick and eyeshadow/liner fairly well.

The Saem Secret Pure Eye Warm Mask

The Saem Secret Pure Eye Warm Mask – Retail Value $3.90 (found here for $3.12)

When you open this package, an exothermic chemical reaction occurs inside the product. I am always really happy to get these, regardless of the brand. I get sinus headaches sometimes and don’t want to take decongestants, but putting one of these over my eyes in a dark room for 10-15 minutes can bring quite a bit of gentle relief. This one was no exception.

Laneige Time Freeze Eye Serum (3 mL) – Estimated Value $7.50 (buy 20mL for $50, on sale for $42.50)

We got a very thick cream from this product line last month that I’ve been using as an evening moisturizer. It’s been great, and gentle on my skin, so I was happy to see another product from the Time Freeze line. This is of medium viscosity and it absorbs quickly. I’ve used it maybe 4 or 5 times now and it hasn’t irritated the delicate skin around my eyes (this is a problem for me with many other products). This does have collagen, so it’s not a vegan product (collagen can NEVER be vegan), but you probably shouldn’t expect a K-beauty subscription to be vegan. This also has kelp, which is full of vitamins and minerals. I don’t get dark circles under my eyes – guess I’m not genetically predisposed – but I do think it helps with smoothing out fine lines.

Skinfood Charcoal Konjac Cleansing Puff

Skinfood Charcoal Konjac Cleansing Puff – Retail Value $2.36

I have kind of a backlog of konjac sponges to get through right now (they do wear out and have to be replaced, and thanks to subscription boxes, I never have to buy them myself). This one arrives moist (so do the ones from Julep, if you’re keeping track; others arrive dry and expand upon wetting) and contains charcoal. I really like products like this for doing some gentle exfoliation, even with non-exfoliating cleansers – and for absorbing gunk out of the pores on my nose (that’s the charcoal at work).

Nature Republic Real Nature Mask Sheet in Shea Butter – Retail Value $1.99

This is the sheet mask for the month. I’m familiar with this brand, of course, but I am pretty sure this mask is new to me. The serum is thicker and more of a white color than a lot of other mask serums. The promoted ingredient here is obviously shea butter, which is super moisturizing. This was a pretty big mask that I was able to tuck around the bottom of my chin (an area I feel like I neglect when it comes to skincare). There was not a strong odor.

Verdict: I calculated a total value of $16.98 for the March 2018 TutiiBag. As usual, take the prices quoted above with a grain of salt. Prices vary widely for these items depending on whether you buy from a US-based seller or straight from Korea, and many of the items have vastly different prices on Amazon, eBay, etc. But, in general, this seems like a reasonable value for what I paid and I will use everything.  I like getting one tool (sponge) and a variety of different skincare items, and the eye mask was much appreciated (I’ve been having sinus issues with the changing of the weather around where I live).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first shipment would be April’s. Also, please note that this is the “oily/acne” combo (selected at sign-up) and if you choose a different skin type, some of your items may vary.

Value Breakdown: At $16.95 for this subscription, you’re paying approximately the following:

  • Wipes $1.23
  • Eye mask $3.89
  • Eye serum $7.47
  • Sponge $2.36
  • Sheet mask $1.99

Alternatively, you’re paying about $3.39 per item.

  1. I love this bag! I have been going through hell with Bomibox!

    • Hey Michelle, I came to this post because I’m not sure whether to continue bomibox. When I get a box, I always love it, but to wait over a month after charging for the box every time is ridiculous. I think for now I’ll skip every other month and hope they get their act together.

  2. I received all the same products..except the face mask. The one I got is an “ apple infused water mild sheet mask” and it says “smoothing” on the top corner and it’s from a brand called “Goodal” (no clue) lol
