This is a review of February’s box.
Everything in this month’s Piibu Box. This month, they replaced their paper information card with a digital link. I really like the digital info card.
Leaders Insolution Bye Bye to Dry Intense Hydrating Mask (~$4) – This mask has shown up a lot in subscription boxes lately, so I had already tried it before receiving it in Piibu Box. It contains “matricaria flower extract, sugar maple extract, witch hazel water, thyme flower or leaf extract for intense hydrating”. It’s a thick cotton type of mask. It is SOAKED with essence – not just your typical soaked, but a lot of essence absorbed on the mask and I had enough leftover to put on my neck. The fit is pretty good in general. I had it on for 50 minutes and it was still wet. My skin was left moisturized and hydrated afterwards. I think this is a very good mask for winter because it really provides “intense hydrating”.
Scent: 3.5/5 (unscented)
These easy-to-use sheet masks are packed with a full bottle of skin-loving-serum-to-give-instant-and-long-lasting-results.
Daiso Coenzyme Q10 Face Mask ($1.50) – I have also already tried this mask, because I love Daiso Japan and sheet masks, so how could I not already have tried all the sheet masks in Daiso already? It contains “snail secretion filtrate, camellia sinensis leaf extract, centella asiatica extract, hyaluronic acid for skin hydration and elasticity”. It has a light flower scent. The eye holes are small for me, which is pretty common for Japanese masks although this one is made in Korea. The mask was soaked with essence, and I had a bit left over as well. After 30 minutes, I could feel my skin being moisturized, but did not notice any other effects.
This CQ10 infused masks are a hidden gem, made in korea and hydrates and rejuvenates the skin. Best for normal to oily skin types.
Taeyeon Girls’ Generation Stem Cell Mask (~$3) – I have tried a few of the Girl’s Day masks but never tried Girls’ Generation. I find it very interesting that the girl bands all have their own sheet masks. It contains “collagen, blueberry fruit extract, licorice root extract, raspberry fruit extract, tomato fruit extract, witch hazel extract, propolis extract, panax ginseng root extract”. It has a very strong floral scent. I find it pleasant. It has a plastic layer that you peel off. The nose part is a bit short for me. It’s a thick cotton type mask. It wasn’t super soaked with essence but I had a little bit left over, so the mask material is not great at holding essence. Surprisingly, the adhesion is very good. After 30 minutes, my skin felt softer and plumped. However, it also felt sticky.
This mask features an all-star cast of beloved ingredients like Collagen, Snail Secretion Filtrate, and Blueberry, all of which moisturize and nourish skin with anti-aging effects. It also brightens skin tone, boosts elasticity, and smooths out the texture, leaving you glowing and ready to “party”!
Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Blackberry (~$1) – The It’s Real Squeeze Mask series from Innisfree is very popular. This was my first time trying the blackberry version. It contains “blackberry juice, grapefruit extract, orchid extract to protect and keep skin looking healthy”. It’s a very soft cotton mask. It’s a bit short on the forehead area for me, but the overall fit is good. I did not have any leftover essence, but the mask was soaked. It has a sweet floral scent. The adhesion was very good for the whole 40 minutes I had it on. My skin felt moisturized but sticky afterwards.

A’pieu Hydrating White Milk One Pack (~$1) – Yaaaaaay the milk one pack! This was the mask I was most excited to try because I’ve seen it in the #abcommunity a lot lately and I also just tried three other flavors of this one, but I hadn’t tried the white milk one yet. It definitely has a milk smell which I like. The essence is also creamy. The overall fit is really good everywhere. The mask was wet but there was not much leftover essence. After 30 minutes of use, I definitely felt my skin being moisturized, soft, and smooth.

Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask ($0.99) – I have always seen Dermal masks in my local Asian market. I heard that they were just okay so I never bought any to try, but I was definitely curious about them. This is another Japanese mask that was actually made in Korea. It contains “royal jelly extract, hydrolyzed collagen, aloe barbadensis leaf juice for skin nutrition, moisturizing, and refinining”. Royal jelly is one of my favorite mask ingredients because of its high nutrient content. The mask smells more floral than honey-like. It has a very short forehead fit. The mask was wet but there was no leftover essence. While it was on, I could feel a bit of tingling effect. After use, my face felt a bit moisturized but I did not notice any other effects. I would probably not repurchase this one.
This is a new essence mask which specially formulates cosmetics to penerate highly concentrated active ingredients into the skin while keeping air out of the skin completely
Ekel Aloe Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask (~$1.50) – This was my first time seeing this mask. I’m always up for trying brand new masks. It contains aloe extract to provide moisture and nutrition to skin. The mask was soaked with essence with a little bit leftover in the package. It definitely has an aloe scent. Overall, it was small on my face. I felt a bit of hydrating effect after use.
Delivers deep hydration & vitality to skin. Features a triple layered design to ensure a long-lasting moisturizing effect.
Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch (~$1) – Yay I love spot patches! I have acne-prone skin so I’m always on the hunt for good spot patches. So far the CosRX pimple patches are my holy grail. Compared to the CosRX ones, these appear to have thinner patches and therefore absorb less oil, but they attach to skin more tightly. They do work for reducing the size of pimples, but it will take more applications of them than the CosRX ones.

Overall, I think this is a diverse selection of masks. I got to try some new masks that I never tried before. My favorites are the A’pieu Milk One Pack, the Innisfree blackberry mask, and the Skinfood tea tree patches.
