This is a review of November’s box.  The above picture shows everything in this month’s box.

Since August, they have been putting everything in an Ipsy-like gold foil mailer rather than the signature box that they used to send.

The Oozoo Face Capsule Shot Mask (~$5) – I was gifted a couple of these Oozoo masks a while back but I never got around to trying them.  I’m very happy to receive one in Piibu Box.  This one contains witch hazel water, sodium hyaluronate, rosa canina fruit oil, and macadamia integrifolia seed oil for moisturizing.  The fun part about this mask is that you use the ampoule in the little syringe provided and inject it into the side with the sheet, then rub the package a bit before taking the mask out and putting it on your face.  I get the idea that you would want to combine certain ingredients to make fresh sheet mask essence; however, for this one I don’t know why it’s necessary to do the extra step except that I had fun doing it.  The mask material is a bit stiff compared to most cotton masks.  However, the fit and attachment were pretty good.  After 40 minutes my skin felt smooth and hydrated.  It’s certainly a pricier mask.

Leaders Insolution 7 Wonders Kalahari Melon Moisturizing Mask (~$2) – It contains matricaria flower extract, coconut fruit extract, witch hazel water, and several other plant extracts for deep hydrating and smoothing.  This mask is not new to me.  The Leaders 7 Wonders mask series have always been one of my favorite biocellulose gel masks.  This one is one of my favorite types.  The mask has a sweet floral scent.  The fit and attachment are exceptional.  I usually use this for more than 40 minutes before taking it off.  My skin felt hydrated and plumped without any sense of stickiness.

Leaders Insolution Illuminating Treatment Mask (~$2) – This is one of Leaders’ classic cotton masks.  I’ve tried other variations of this one but I don’t believe I’ve tried the Illuminating one.  This one contains glycerin, niacinamide, chamomilla recutita flower extract, and sugar maple extract for skin brightening and radiance.  It’s free from mineral oil, parabens, silicon, and artificial pigments.  The mask is soaked with essence and reminds me of their “Bye Bye to Dry” mask.  It has a very pleasant floral scent.  I had a clear gel-type essence left over in the package.  I used this mask for nearly an hour without it becoming dry.  Afterwards my skin felt moisturized and soft.  I didn’t notice much of a brightening effect.

Neogen Sur.Medic Hydro-Hyaluronic Mask (~$3.50) – I’ve tried a couple Sur.Medic masks but I haven’t tried the Hydro-Hyaluronic mask before.  This mask contains glycerin, niacinamide, and sodium hyaluronate (20 ppm) for skin hydrating and brightening.  It also has anti-wrinkle effects from its various herbal ingredients.  The mask material feels a little bit harder than most cotton masks.  However, it has a really nice attachment.  The essence is a clear gel type with a light floral scent.  I had it on for about 30 minutes.  Afterwards, my skin felt hydrated.

Leaders Insolution Coconut Gel Mask with Blueberry (~$3) – Like many other masks in the box, I’ve tried some other masks in this series but not this specific one.  This is a hydrogel mask.  The essence contains sugar maple extract, glycerin, and chamomilla recutita extract for skin hydration.  The added blueberry ingredient is also a good antioxidant.  The mask has a light floral scent similar to the 7 Wonders mask.  It has a really good attachment and fit.  My skin felt soft and moisturized after use.  Overall, I think this is really similar to the 7 Wonders mask series.

Banobagi Vita Genic Relaxing Jelly Mask (~$2) – This is yet another mask where I’ve tried another version (in this case, the blue and yellow version).  I’ve been wanting to try the Relaxing one for a while, so I’m really happy to receive it in Piibu Box.  It contains glycerin, niacinamide, royal jelly extract, and aloe barbadensis leaf water for calming and balancing the skin.  The essence is a jelly-like essence with a light fruity scent.  The material is soft and soaked with essence.  It has a really nice fit and attachment.  After 40 minutes, my skin felt smooth and plumped without any sense of stickiness.  It’s definitely one of the masks that I would repurchase.

Mediheal Line Friends P.D.F A.C Dressing Ampoule Mask ($2) – Yay I’m finally trying the Sally version of this!  I love the Line Friends masks I’ve tried so far, and A.C Dressing is what I need for my skin type, so this is perfect for me.  This mask contains glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, hydrolyzed collagen, soybean seed extract, pea extract, and several flower extracts for oil control and relief.  It also has salicylic acid to help with acne.  As with most Mediheal masks, I didn’t notice much scent.  I definitely enjoyed the little Sally’s head on my cheek.  After using the mask for 40 minutes, my skin felt smooth with a matte finish, and the essence was completely absorbed after removing the mask.  I’m definitely repurchasing this one.

Dermal Charcoal Collagen Essence Mask (~$1) – I feel like Dermal is Piibu’s favorite brand because I see one of their masks in most of their boxes.  The great thing is that I haven’t tried this Charcoal Collagen Essence mask yet.  This one contains 1% charcoal powder, glycerin, 0.2% hydrolyzed collagen, and aloe barbadensis leaf juice for skin refining and soothing.  This is probably the first charcoal mask I’ve tried that’s white rather than black, which kind of surprised me.  The mask material is soft.  The fit and attachment are both okay.  However, like most Dermal essence masks, this one made my skin feel smooth and supple without any stickiness.  It’s actually a very nice basic mask.  However, if you’re worried about paraben ingredients, this one does have them.

Overall, I think this is a really nice curation from Piibu Box.  It seems like this month they’re focusing on hydrating.  I’m very happy to see that they’ve included two hydrogel masks in this box.  I also like the brand selections that seem to be more diverse and unique compared to previous months.  I’m excited to see what’s to come in future Piibu Boxes.
