Piibu Box May 2018 Review
Natural-Tox Mask Sheet Carrot – Retail Value $1.50
I was happy to see this brand again because I had a relaxing experience with its grape and apple cousins last month! This carrot one was nice; the scent was kind of grassy and sweet, and was an easy-to-use cotton mask. I thought this mask had a bit more of a brightening effect than the other two – it’s supposed to contain collagen to soothe and protect the skin.
A’PIEU Coffee Milk – Retail Value $2.00
It was great to see another familiar mask, again, in another flavor! I had just said last month that I wanted to try all the “flavors” of this mask, so I was thrilled to see this coffee variety. It’s funny – I didn’t start drinking coffee regularly until long after college was over, so there were a lot of years in my 20’s where I didn’t think I’d ever be considered a coffee-drinker. However, I have always adored the smell of the stuff! This mask smells so good, like a nice light latte, and it seemed to have more serum than the green tea one I tried last month.
What bright, sunny packaging! Calendula refers to the family name of several varieties of marigold, which seems like an interesting ingredient for a mask since marigolds aren’t famous for smelling very good. This, however, had a light scent that was sort of cotton-esque. It held a pretty good amount of serum, but I didn’t notice much difference in my skin after using.
Tonymoly is a classic for a reason, and this comfy cotton mask was a nice stand-by for the week! This smelled awesome I thought the mask fit pretty well, but the forehead piece was a little large. I personally didn’t mind getting some serum in my hair, but I could see how that might be a concern if other users got a fit similar to what I experienced. I found this one to be really hydrating!
JAYJUN Anti Dust Therapy Mask – Retail Value $4.00
This might be the most gorgeous packaging for a mask that I’ve ever seen! Seriously, I was actually a little sad to open this three-step mask because it was so beautiful. I really like these more intensive skin treatments; they force me to take a longer time-out from my day and really focus on self-care. This included a cleanser to start, followed by a green (!) mask, and then finished with a soothing cream. I really liked the cleanser; I felt like it washed off the dirt of the day, and when I was finished, my husband commented a couple of times how good the cream smelled.
N.M.F Aqua Collagen Essence Mask – Retail Value $2.00
This mask is full of really hydrating ingredients to add moisture to skin – the first they boast is sea water, and the main ingredient is hydrolyzed collagen. This cotton mask fit a little strangely around my nose, but was a good fit on my chin and cheeks, and had a nice clean, slightly mineral scent. It had a lot of serum, and my skin looked calmer, less red, after I used it.
Mediheal Revital Essential Mask
This mask is easily the most scientific-looking of this month’s batch! I wasn’t super-familiar with this brand when it arrived. It has a nice thickness to the mask itself, so it was easy to put on and held a lot of serum that I rubbed into my neck and shoulders after I was using it. It didn’t have much of a smell, but it was so hydrating and made my skin feel like it had been revitalized after I was done using it.
Verdict: This month’s batch of masks gave me new varieties of sheets I received previously as well as a nice variety from each other. I really liked the coffee variety of the milk mask, Jayjun blew me away with their three-step treatment this month, and the Aqua Collagen mask really offered up some serious hydration for my poor skin.
