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.

Tutiibag July 2018 Review
You usually get a pretty good mix of different skin care items, 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 I didn’t need them this month.
Care Zone Doctor Solution A-Cure Clarifying Toner EX, 5 mL – Estimated Value $0.63 (buy 170 mL for $21.27, found here for $20.21)
I love getting toners to try and they show up fairly often with this subscription. This is a new brand for me, too. I do wish it was a bit larger, though I should still get a few days of use out of this. This is a clarifying toner; please note that I get the “oily/acne” version of Tutiibag and people with other versions may not receive all the same items. I think this was useful at removing traces of makeup that my regular cleansing routine didn’t get, and it did not irritate my eyes. I’d say something about ingredients here, normally, but the site where I found this for sale didn’t list any (that I could see).
I have actually received this product from Tutiibag before, but that was almost a year ago. This is a very large tube, I believe the standard full-size container of the product. It does absorb into the skin very nicely and is non-irritating, though it is just a little bit thinner than my preferred eye cream texture. I don’t really remember my results from last year but I got this in the middle of a mini medical crisis last time and I wasn’t really thinking much about skincare. Things are much better now and I can turn my attention back to my skin. This has, as you might expect, snail slime (aka snail secretion filtrate), which is a polymer that holds on to a lot of water and may aid in reducing the appearance of fine lines.
Care Zone Doctor Solution A-Cure Clarifying Spot Patch – Retail Value $4.63 (found here for $3.01)
There are 12 sheets each here, with 12 patches per sheet (hence the 144 you see on the package). I did have a breakout recently so I tried some of these. I can’t say that they’re overnight miracle workers, but I think if they are used in the same spot over a couple of days, their effects will become more apparent. The adhesive kept them in place overnight. You will often get a pair of products from the same manufacturer and I like using these together to get a sense of brands as systems instead of just isolated products.
This mask is fairly high on the serum (but not drippy) and the serum does take a long time to absorb after you remove the mask, so just keep that in mind if you use this in the morning. It has a slight honey smell when you open the package but the scent doesn’t linger too long. This includes honey, which is full of minerals and has antimicrobial properties as well. It may also help with inflammation. This also has a cactus extract which is likely contributing to the moisture level. This is supposed to help with skin elasticity but I can’t say I noticed much of a difference after only a single use.
A’Pieu Ugly Cuticle Cream, 10 mL – Retail Value $3.90
Well, goodness knows my cuticles are in terrible shape and can use all the help they can get. I am familiar with this brand, but this is a new product for me. I think I prefer it over cuticle oils, it absorbs well and seems much less messy. I’ve used this a few times now and *think* it is helping, but I’m going to try to be consistent about using it for more than a week and see how things go from there.
Verdict: I calculated a total value of about $18.22 for the July 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. In general, I am pretty sure I’ve used both sources with low prices and high shipping charges, and sources with high prices and free shipping, in the links above. Plus, many of these items are not available in the sample sizes received, so providing a total might not be all that accurate. At any rate, I would say this package had the number and type of products I would expect (one sheet mask, some varied skincare products, and the like). I was a little disappointed to get a repeat eye cream, but on the other hand, as I noted above, I don’t remember my results, so it’s kind of like I haven’t used it before, right?
