This is a review of June’s box.

Everything in this month’s Piibu Box.  This box is a little bit different from usual.  Their digital link that serves as their information card hasn’t been updated since May, and they only have six masks instead of the usual eight.

Leaders Mediu Amino Moisture Mask (~$1.30) – This is a mask I’ve wanted to try for a while because some of my friends mentioned that it was a great mask, so I’m glad that it was included in this month’s box.  It contains lysine (amino acid) and ceramide for skin moisturizing, and is especially good for dry skin.  It has a light sweet scent.  The mask sheet is soaked with essence.  I found the fit to be a little bit small.  I had it on for about 40 minutes and my skin felt smooth and plumped.  Compared to their very famous Bye Bye to Dry mask (which is more of a winter mask), I think this one is more of a universal use mask because the mask sheet is not as thick and I can see comparable results.  I think this is definitely a decent mask for the price.

Dr. Jart Soothing Hydra Solution Deep Hydration Sheet Mask (~$2.50) – I think this mask is the reason they had six masks instead of their usual eight.  Dr. Jart is a fancy brand.  I’ve been eyeing this mask for a while.  The mask is made of fine cellulose fiber which allows the pores to fully absorb the nutrients.  It also has the Aqua Xyl Technology, which includes patented ingredients derived from plant glucose and xylitol for hydration.  It also has aloe vera and phytoncides as a quick calming complex for healing and repairing dry skin.  The mask has a medicinal smell, which does not surprise me after seeing the packaging.  It’s very thin and soft and it’s soaked with essence.  The fit is a little bit wide on my face.  I had no leftover in the packaging.  After a 40 minute masking session, my skin felt moisturized and soft.  It’s on sale for about $2.50 each on Amazon, which is not a bad price, but I don’t think this mask is that fancy because you can get similar results from masks that cost much less.

Common Labs Ggultamin C Real Jel Mask (~$2) – This mask is not new to me; I reviewed it on my Instagram a while back.  Both the Vitamin B and C masks are very decent.  This is a two-step mask that includes a peeling pad and the sheet mask.  It contains vitamin C complex to “help brighten, boost collagen, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles.”  It also contains honey and propolis extract for intense moisturization and anti-aging.   It’s made with cupra sheets which are really soft and attach perfectly.  It’s almost invisible when attached to skin.  It contains 33 mL of a jelly texture essence.  It has a fairly strong floral scent.  I left it on for nearly an hour before it started to get dry.  It made my skin feel very soft and plumped after using them, and I also noticed a brightening effect.  I really love the idea of the two steps and I think they are great masks for the price.

Serment Rejuvenating Mask Pack (~$2.70) – I’ve never heard of this brand before.  This mask includes mucin and chondroroitin sulfate for skin regeneration, allatonin for pore shrinkage, glycolic acid for moisturizing, and collagen and elastin for elasticity.  The mask material is very thin.  The mask was wet but I didn’t see any leftover essence.  The mask is unscented.  It fits very nicely on my face.  After a 30 minute masking session, my skin felt moisturizing, but I did not feel any other changes.  I think this mask is on the pricier side for what this mask can deliver.

My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol Mask (~$2) – I’ve tried several variations of MBD’s masks, but this one is new to me.  MBD’s masks are generally good but not amazing, and this one is no different.  This one contains apple polyphenol for pore tightening, roselle extract for brightening and clarifying.  It has a light apple scent.  The fit in general is good except that the forehead area is pretty short for me.  The mask was soaked with essence with some leftover.  For the first few minutes, the essence was actually dripping from the mask onto my face, which is not a great experience.  After the masking session, my skin felt hydrated and smooth.  I didn’t notice any brightening or pore tightening effect.

Mothermade Pure Pearl Mask (~$1.70) – Piibu loves its Mothermade masks.  I think this is the third month in a row they’ve included one.  This mask contains 5000 ppm pearl extract, niacinamide, rice extract, and anise fruit extract for skin brightening.  This is yet another mask with thin material.  The mask was soaked with plenty of essence.  Surprisingly, it has a fruity scent.  I had this mask on for about 20 minutes.  After using it, my skin felt moisturized and soft.  I did not see any brightening effect.

Overall, this month seems to be focused on brightening and moisturizing.  I’m really glad that they included a few masks that I’ve wanted to try for a while.  I’d say half of this masks in this month’s box are pretty average, but the Leaders and Common Labs masks did stand out.
