This is a review of March’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.

Dewytree Nutrition Deep Mask Green Enzyme (~$3) – I have not tried too many masks from Dewytree other than their nose strips. This mask contains Bergamot Fruit Oil, Bergamot Leaf Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract…for skin vitalizing; papain enzyme that helps to exfoliate and improves the absorptive power of mask essence. I think that’s a lab coat on the packaging which is pretty funny to me. My first impression of the mask was IT IS GREEN when I took it out of the packaging. The mask material is very soft and it was soaked with fruity scented essence. I had some clear gel-like essence leftover as well. The fit and attachment were great for a cotton mask. I had it on for 30mins. My skin felt moisturized and soft afterwards. No tackiness detected. I’d be happy be try out the other variants of this mask!

Mijin Cosmetics Lift Active Essence Mask (~$2) – Mijin is a brand new brand to me in terms of sheetmasks. This mask contains Aloe Barbadensis Leaf and Portulaca Oleracea Extracts for moisturizing, nourishing and vitalizing. The mask material is the thick cotton type. The fit and attachment were about average. After 20mins, my skin was moisturized. This is a basic moisturizing mask which I wouldn’t pay $2 for.

Elensilia Intra-Cell Escargot + Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask (~$1) – I’ve tried a couple other variants of these Elensilia Intra-Cell masks. The blue one contains Escargot and Hyaluronic Acid for skin moisturizing. I’ve noticed a relatively strong scent of fragrances when I first took the mask out of the packaging. The mask was soaked with essence, but there’s not much essence leftover. The fit and attachment were about average compared to similar cotton types of masks. I had it on for 30mins. My skin felt moisturized with no tackiness detected. I think it’s a decent everyday mask for the price.

Neogen Sur.Medic Bright-Glutathione (~$3.50) – Sur. Medic mask line is also not new to me. This particular one contains Glutathione for skin brightening. The mask came out the packaging soaked with floral scented essence. I don’t know why I felt like the mask material was harder and thicker than the other variants in the same line. After 30mins, my skin felt moisturized. I didn’t see any immediate brightening effect. I was a little disappointed since I liked all the other Sur. Medic masks I’ve tried.

Etude House 0.2mm Masks in Lotus and Snail (~$2 each) – Etude House  0.2mm masks are not new to me, but I hadn’t tried these two variants before I received my Piibu box this month. The mask material of these masks is very thin. They came out of the packaging soaked with essence. The lotus one claims to provide soothing and purifying effects, whereas the snail one is for smoothing and firming. The lotus mask has clear watery essence and the snail one has creamy essence. The fit and attachment of these masks were really good. My skin definitely felt calmed and hydrated after using the lotus mask, and my skin was smooth and soft after using the snail one. The 0.2mm line is probably my favorite sheetmask line ever from Etude House.

Dewytree Vitamin Melting-Chou Mask (~$3.50) – Another mask from Dewytree! This mask contains hyaluronic acid, grapefruit oil, peppermint oil, silica, olive oil, lime oil and several amino acid ingredients for skin firming and brightening. The mask came out the packaging soaked with lemony scented essence. I had plenty of creamy essence leftover. The fit and attachment were pretty good. I had it on for 30mins. My skin felt moisturized and slightly brightened. I think $3.5 is a little pricey for this mask, but I’d repurchase when it goes on sale for sure!

A’Pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask – Melon (~$2) – Yaaaas the last variant in the Icing Sweet Bar mask line. I loved all the other three I’ve tried so far! Spoiler: this one is not an exception either.  This mask contains melon and kiwi fruit extracts for nourishing; witch hazel and cucumber extracts for soothing. The mask material is thin and soft. The fit and attachment were great. I love the sweet fruity scent.  I had the mask on for 40mins. My skin felt hydrated and calmed without any feeling of stickiness. I will definitely repurchase these cute and effective masks!
