This is a review of April’s box.

Everything in this month’s Piibu Box.  They replaced their paper information card with a digital link.  I really like the digital info card.

S Recover Black Charcoal Snail Facial Mask (~$2) – I always love a good charcoal mask and I have pretty high expectations for black masks.  This one contains “snail slime filtrate for skin elasticity, enhanced moisturizing, and supple skin”.  It has a very clean scent.  The mask sheet is wet with a clear essence.  The mask material is soft for a black mask.  The general fit is pretty small for my face.  The attachment is pretty good, but not great compared to the other black masks I’ve used.  I felt some cooling sensation while using the mask, and my skin felt hydrated after use.  However, I did sense some stickiness.

S Recover Vitamin Solution Aqua Facial Mask ($5 each on Amazon) – S Recover is a new brand to me.  This mask contains “honeysuckle flower extract, sesame seed extract, rice extract for skin soothing and moisturizing”.  Surprisingly, it has a fruity, candy-like scent.  The mask is soaked with essence.  The attachment is exceptional and the fit is good everywhere.  Besides hydrated skin, I did not notice any other results after use.  I don’t think this mask is worth $5.

Banobagi Vita Genic Hydrating Jelly Mask (~$3) – It contains “liposome vitamin, oxygen water from Jeju Island for skin nutrition and moisturizing”.  This mask has been very popular in the Asian beauty community.  It’s famous for its jelly essence.  It has a very strong floral scent and is SOAKED with essence.  The mask material is very soft.  The fit is generally good and the attachment is awesome.  After a 40 minute masking session, my skin felt soft and hydrated.

Dewpiel Defense Mask Pore (~$3.50) – This is another mask I was very interested in trying because I have pore problems.  I’ve never tried any masks from this brand before.  It contains “peptide, hydrolyzed collagen, centella asiatica extract as barrier defense complex and witch hazel extract, purslane extract, tea tree leaf extract for skin calming” and is made with their Micro Away sheet to “remove fine particles on the skin surface exposed to harmful environment”.  It has a plastic mesh layer that you have to remove before using the mask.  It has an herbal scent, which I’m not usually a big fan of but this one is not unpleasant to me.  The general fit is pretty good except that the forehead area was a bit short for me.  The mask was soaked with essence and there was also a lot left over.  The attachment is awesome.  My skin did feel firm and hydrated after the masking session.

Mediheal PiggyMom SoakSoak Nose Pack (~$2.50) – I love 3 step nose packs.  In fact, I’ve tried many brands, but this is my first trying the Mediheal version.  The first step is to lift up the dirt and blackheads, and prepare your nose for peeling.  It’s made with a cotton sheet.  It’s soaked with essence and has a strong soap scent.  It has witch hazel water, sage leaf water, lime fruit extract, peppermint leaf extract, apple fruit extract, and grapefruit extract.  The second step is for peeling off the blackheads and dirt.  This one is a pink sheet, which I really like because most nose straps have a black sheet and the pink sheet really makes a contrast with the peeled-off blackheads.  It worked very well getting off my blackheads without very harsh peeling.  The third step is a hydrogel mask for calming the nose after peeling.  It contains several fruit extracts and matricaria flower extract.

Mediheal P. D. F. AC Dressing Ampoule Mask (~$1.50) – This mask contains “centella asiatica extract, portulaca oleraca extract, and salicylic acid concentrate for rapid relief effect and control of oil secretion”.  Oil control is always one of my skin concerns.  This mask was soaked with essence and there was some left over.  It has a light alcohol smell, which is pretty typical for a Mediheal mask.  After a 40 minute masking session my skin felt smooth and hydrated without extra stickiness.

Medicos-V Snow White Hydrating Essential Mask (~$2) – Medicos-V is another new brand to me.  It’s made by G&S Cosmetic.  I don’t know about you guys, but to me the packaging looks very similar to Mediheal.  This one has “niacinamide to prevent melanin formation and correct skin tone, as well as mulberry root extract to offer hydration”.  This mask has a pleasant floral scent.  It’s soaked with essence, and there was a lot left over.  The material was very soft and thin so it became almost invisible on my face.  After 50 minutes, the mask started to dry out and my skin felt hydrated, but I did not notice any other effects.

Jayjun Refine to Shine Biocellulose Vita Snow Mask (~$5) – It contains “placenta extract, squalane, shea butter, and Queensland fruit seed oil for whitening, activating skin cells, anti-oxidation, anti-aging, and moisturizing”.  This is one of the masks that I was extremely excited to try when I received the box since I’ve tried two variants of Jayjun masks and loved both of them, plus I love biocellulose (gel) masks.  This is your typical 3 layer mask, so you have to remove a sheet on the front and on the back.  It has a pleasant light floral scent.  The fit is small in general, but it has great adhesion ability.  I left it on for about 30 minutes and my skin felt very plumped and smooth.  Since gel masks are generally around $5, I think this is not a bad mask for its price.

Scent: 4.5/5

Adhesion: 5/5

Price: 3.5/5

Packaging: 2/5

Results: 4/5

Overall: 4/5

Overall, I think this is a good collection of masks.  I especially like the Jayjun gel mask and the Mediheal nose straps.  I hope to see some current popular masks in the future boxes.
