This is a review of May’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.

Beyond the Real Multi Vitamin (about $2) – This is a relatively new brand for me.  I know it from last month’s box.  This mask contains lemon, peach, apple, and orange fruit extracts to provide vitality to skin and leave the skin clean and clear.  It certainly has a fruity scent.  The mask was wet and I had some creamy essence left over.  I would say that the sheet material is a bit on the stiff side.  The fit of the mask is pretty good.  I did feel my skin being hydrated and soft afterwards.

Multi-vitamin nutrients leave skin clean and clear while providing vitality to skin.

Saference Skin-RX Facial Firming Mask (about $3) – I’ve seen this mask everywhere and I’ve always wanted to try it.  The only thing I’ve used from Ladykin is their snail cream.  This mask contains hydrolyzed collagen, wine extract, punica granatum fruit extract for skin firming.  It has a pretty strong floral scent.  The mask’s fit and attachment are both pretty good.  I had a 30 minute masking session and my skin felt moisturized afterwards.  I did not notice too much of a firming effect.

Mediheal Line Friends N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask Sheet (about $3) – I’ve tried several masks from Mediheal’s LineFriends line, and liked all of them. The mask came out of the packaging soaked with essence and there was a little bit left over.  The fit of the mask is pretty good and the attachment is also awesome. I love the print on the cheek of this mask the best so far compared to all the other line friends ones I’ve tried!  This mask contains Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide NP for skin moisturizing; Witch Hazel Leaf Extract, Mushroom Extract for managing loosened pores by adjusting sebum and tightening pores.  I had a 40mins mask session with this mask, and my skin felt smooth, hydrated and soft.  No stickiness detected, and it almost left a matte finish on my face which I love.

This silky sheet mask is drenched in Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide, and other super hydrating heroes. This ampoule mask moisturizes skin in a major way, while Witch Hazel and other conditioning ingredients control sebum, soften texture, and tighten pores.

Beyond Green Tea from Jeju (about $3) – This is another mask from Beyond.  It definitely smells like green tea (aka heaven).  It contains 1000ppm camellia sinensis leaf extract for skin moisturizing and soothing.  This mask came out of the packaging soaked with essence and I had some left over.  The eyeholes are small but otherwise the general fit is okay.  I had a 30 minute masking session and my skin felt moisturized afterwards.  I like the mask but not enough to pay $3 for it.

Green tea from Jeju replenishes deep inside the skin and helps keep skin moisturized.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack (about $2) – I’ve tried this mask before.  Benton’s Snail Bee line is one of my favorite skincare lines from them.  This is pretty much their classic mask.  It contains camellia sinensis leaf water (green tea water) and snail secretion filtrate.  The high content essence also uses bee venom, EGF, and various botanical based natural ingredients to improve rough and damaged skin and for cooling, moisturizing, soothing, and skin lifting.  It also provides brightening and wrinkle improvement.  The mask came out of the packaging wet.  There was no leftover essence.  The general fit is pretty good.  I used this mask for 30 minutes and my skin felt smoothed, soft, and plumped afterwards.

Pure cotton masks soaked in snail mucin essence and bee venom extract deeply nourish skin, soothe irritated and damaged skin. Improves skin tone and texture.

Mothermade Revitalizing Bird’s Nest Facial Mask (about $2) – I know this brand from Piibu (thank you!)  This mask contains 5,000 ppm swiftlet nest extract, anise fruit extract, and noto ginseng root extract for anti-wrinkle and revitalizing.  The mask material is very soft and thin, which I like.  The attachment is really good and the fit is good as well.  I had a lot of leftover essence.  It has a Chinese medicine kind of smell, which doesn’t bother me.  I could feel a tingling effect on my face while using this, and afterwards I felt my skin being hydrated and elastic.

Premium Quality facial sheet mask, specially formulated to be REGENERATING, FIRMING AND EFFECTIVE with rich amount of BIRD’S NEST EXTRACT as well as other anti-aging ingredients such as Collagen, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

Naruko Snail Essence Intense Hydra Repair Mask (about $2) – This mask is not new to me.  I really like most of Naruko’s sheet masks and this is one of them.  This mask contains snow fungus extract, cucumber fruit extract, snail secretion filtrate, oat kernel extract, and aloe barbadensis leaf juice for intense hydration and repair.  This is a double layer mask, so you have to remove a film from the mask before using it.  The material is super soft and soaked with essence.  The only problem for me is that the material is super slippery.  I almost dropped it a few times before I could remove the layer and fit it on my face.  It has great attachment power and a good fit on my face.  The mask was soaked with essence and there was not much left in the package, which is great because that means all the essence was on the mask.  I left this mask on for an hour, after which my face felt moisturized and soft.

This product offers superior brightening effects as well as extra firm strength. This product also is free of paraben.

Dermal Korea Collagen Essence Facial Mask Sheet ($1) – This is probably the third mask I’ve tried from Dermal.  These masks are available in Asian grocery stores.  This one contains green tea leaf extract and aloe barbadensis leaf extract for skin firming and moisturizing.  It does contain methyl paraben, if you’re concerned about preservatives.  Surprisingly, it has a floral scent.  I was expecting more of a refreshing green tea scent.  The mask was soaked with essence but I did not have much left over.  The fit was very good.  I used this mask for 40 minutes, after which I could feel my skin being plumped and moisturized.  I think this is a great mask for the price.

It is a simple sheet type essence mask offering your skin direct nutrition and after using, it is possible for you to go out without washing your face.

Overall, this is a really good month from Piibu.  I really like the various brand picks this month.  It seems they’re focused on moisturizing and firming, and masks containing snail secretion filtrate and green tea leaf extract.  The masks I will definitely repurchase are the Mediheal Line Friends, the Naruko snail mask, and the Benton Snail Bee.
