Sooni Mini Pouch May 2019 Review
Here is the info sheet for the box.
On the back is a note that my pouch was prepared by Crystal. Thanks, Crystal!
Etude House Silk Scarf Conditioner, 2 oz – Retail Value $2.60
We received the shampoo from this line in a previous pouch, and I am happy to now have the set. This wasn’t too heavy so it should work well for thin and fine hair, but it still gave my curls most of the moisture I needed (I have incredibly dry hair).
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Body Cream, 5.07 oz – Estimated Value $6.90
I can't tell if this lotion is faintly scented with aloe, or if it is unscented and my mind is playing tricks on me. Either is possible, but I think even if you're sensitive to fragrances you should be fine with this one. This was hydrating and non-greasy, and I like the high aloe content in the ingredients list. I think this performs well for the relatively low price so that always makes me happy.
Dewytree Blackhead Out Nose Patches, 2 patches – Retail Value $2 ($1 each)
These nose patches are made with volcanic ash and charcoal extract to draw out impurities and help with sebum. I wasn’t that impressed with these because when using they left a black residue on my nose even though it appeared the mask had dried fully, but it did clear some stuff out so I can’t complain too much.
A’Pieu Lemon Vinegar Mask – Retail Value $1.99
unusual ingredients- lemon extract, vinegar, and AH (which I think is an abbreviation for alpha-hydroxy acids?). Either way, I liked this! I do think there was some temporary brightening once I took it off, and it had a lemon scent that was unique.
Moksha Dear Mugwort Mask – Retail Value $3
This is a really great sheet mask - it’s affordable, it’s soothing, and my skin loves it! Mugwort is a plant known in Asia for its anti-inflammatory properties, and it is great for soothing acne or skin irritants. This mask has a great ingredients list with three of the top five being glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and mugwort extract. It fit my face well, and my skin felt plump and happy after wearing.
The History of Whoo Qi Jin Cream - Buy the 1.7 oz version for $150
This box usually features a few foil samples, but I am happy that the brand for them this month is The History of Whoo- they’re a well-known luxe k-beauty brand with some insanely gorgeous packaging. To be honest, while it is fun to try out such a luxe product, I am not sure the ingredients list justifies the insanely high price tag. I’ll definitely be hanging on to these samples for the next time I am traveling, though!
The Verdict: One of my biggest complaints with this box is the frequency with which hard-to-find brands are included, so I am impressed I was able to find every single item included this month online! What that also means, though, is that it is apparent this month did not meet the promised value of $60. This month's box doesn't even meet the $19.99 cost of the box, with a total value of $16.49 for everything except the foil samples. While these samples are probably worth a few dollars considering the high cost of the full-size version, I definitely think Sooni Pouch needs to up their value in this box in order to remain competitive.
