Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Information Sheet Front Top

Here is the info sheet for the box.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Box By Ann Top

On the other side of the info sheet is a note that my box was prepared by Ann.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Foil Samples Top

We received a few foil samples as a bonus, which I appreciated. I love the Nature Republic Argan Oil line, so I am excited to try the shampoo!

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Jant Blanc Green Tea Balancing Toner Package FrontSooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Jant Blanc Green Tea Balancing Toner Front

Jant Blanc Green Tea Balancing Toner

This toner is made with both green tea extract and green tea water, and it has a texture that is slightly thicker than typical water. I thought the frosted glass packaging made this feel fancy, and I appreciated that this absorbed quickly into my skin and left it feeling well-balanced and hydrated.

Etude House Exfoliating Jellyfish Brush – Retail Value $6.30

Etude House has some seriously cute products- look at this little jellyfish! It has silicone bristles to get a deep clean and it has a sponge inside that will lather up and dispense cleanser. On the other side of the jellyfish, the little tentacles are actually for facial massage (which I am ALWAYS here for).

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Yedam Yunbit Placenta Serum Bottle FrontSooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Yedam Yunbit Placenta Serum Bottle Top

Yedam Yunbit Placenta Serum

Yedam Yunbit is a brand I can never find online, but I have enjoyed all of the products I have tried from the brand. Placenta may sound scary, but in skin care, it is derived from plants and is packed with amino acids and peptides and can help with skin oxygenation. I am a fan of layering serums, and this one layered well and added nourishment to my skin. Placenta is supposed to be good for healing irritation, so I am hopeful this will be calming to my red cheeks.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Dewytree The Clean Lab AC Foam Front

Dewytree The Clean Lab AC Foam

This cleanser is best for oily skin, and it left my skin feeling a tiny bit tight. This has white willow bark extract and allantoin, so along with effectively cleansing your skin you’re getting some skin soothing benefits, too.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Etude House Monster Micellar Cleansing Water Bottle Front

Etude House Monster Micellar Cleansing Water, 0.84 oz – Estimated Value $0.65 (Buy the 100 mL bottle for $2.60)

This micellar water is made with aloe, bamboo, and green tea to be nourishing while cleansing your skin. I enjoyed how gentle this was, too.

TonyMoly Perfect Lips Double Color Tint in #3 Coral Charming – Retail Value 12.05 (found here for $10.24)

This is a dual-ended lippie with one end being a lip pencil and the other being a velvet liquid lipstick. TonyMoly calls the lipstick a lip tint, but I definitely think the formula is too creamy and thick to be a lip tint.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - TonyMoly Perfect Lips Double Color Tint in #3 Coral Charming Swatched Top

Here are the lipstick and lip liner swatched.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Labute Revive the Skin Pink Rose Mask Front Top

Labute Revive the Skin Pink Rose Mask – Retail Value $2.90

I really love rose in skincare products, so sheet masks like these are always welcome. This had a natural rose scent that I found to be very pleasant, and the mask fit my face well. Rose is such a calming skin care ingredient, and my skin looked refreshed when I was done wearing this.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - TonyMoly Fresh To Go Pineapple Mask Front Top

TONYMOLY Fresh To Go Pineapple Mask – Retail Value $4

This mask was an interesting experience. I wasn’t excited to try it, because it has alcohol pretty high up on the ingredient list. But I love pineapple so I gave it a shot anyways. It was pretty saturated with serum, which made it the perfect mask to use with a jade roller. I pulled my jade roller out of the fridge, rolled my face with the mask on it (and it smells like pineapple juice!), and then almost immediately fell asleep because of how relaxing it was. When I woke up my skin was absolutely glowing. I would probably use it again for the results, but I am a bit bummed that TONYMOLY felt it necessary to include alcohol in the ingredients list.

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Skin Planet Gold Lifting Mask Front Top

Skin Planet Gold Lifting Mask

This mask is made with 24k gold and is designed to brighten dull complexions and hydrate your skin. I am pretty sure that the gold molecule is too big to actually penetrate your skin, but appreciate the fact that it makes me feel fancier. The serum on this was really milky, and it fit my face well. My favorite part was how cooling this was to wear- the cooling sensation is one of my favorite parts of doing a sheet mask!

Sooni Pouch Review March 2019 - Missha Pure Sure Pocket Honey Sleeping Pack Front Top

Missha Pure Sure Pocket Honey Sleeping Pack – Retail Value $2.09 (€ 1.85)

I love the portability of these pocket sleeping packs- perfect for traveling, which is usually when your skin needs the extra hydration, too. Along with aloe this mask also has propolis extract and allantoin, so it’s a very nourishing sleeping mask.

The Verdict: I really feel like over the past few months Sooni Pouch has stepped up their game – I thought this box was a success! I love that the foil samples were a bonus rather than listed as an item on the info sheet, and I am really happy to receive a full-size toner and serum! Sooni Pouch promises a value of over $100 in this box, and I can’t determine if they met that – I don’t know the values of the big-ticket items, and the values of the smaller items I could find added up to $27.99. That being said, I think I got a fair value for the $35.99 price tag, which includes free US shipping.

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? Yes, I believe March boxes are still shipping.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.99 + free US shipping, which means that each of the 10 items in the box has an average cost of $3.60.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t go on pizza and when I’m not studying for law school I’m relaxing at home with my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like!
