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

Banobagi Vita Genic Hydrating Jelly Mask (~$2) – This mask is not new to me. I had tried a few other jelly masks from the same line. This mask contains niacinamide, camellia sinensis seed oil, and “oxygen water from Jeju Island” for nutrition, moisturizing, and soothing. The mask material was very soft and it had a lot of jelly-like essence. I also had plenty left in the packaging. It had a light floral scent. I had it on for 30 minutes. The mask was nowhere near dry when I removed it. It took me some time to pat the essence into my skin. My face felt very much moisturized afterwards. There was some tacky feeling though.

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask – Tea Tree (~$1) – I have tried a few flavored My Real Squeeze masks after they reformulated them, but this was my first time trying the tea tree one. It contains several plant extracts including tea tree, centella asiatica, and paeonia suffruticosa for cleansing and restoring. The mask essence was watery and had a light herbal scent. The mask material was a little bit on the thicker side, but the fit and attachment were not bad. I had the mask on for 20 minutes and my face felt calmed and hydrated afterwards. I think it’s a very basic soothing and hydrating mask.

Dewytree Lemon Brightening Focus Mask (~$1) – Dewytree has gradually become one of my favorite brands for sheet masks. This mask contains lemon extract, vitamin C, cortis mori radicis extract, and licorice extract for brightening and nourishing. The essence had a lemon soda-like scent, which I loved. It was soaked with watery essence. The fit and attachment were okay in general, but it did have very small holes. After 15 minutes, my face felt hydrated and slightly brightened.

Dearpacker Black Ginseng Gold Hydrogel Mask (~$4) – It contains Carrageenan extract, 100ppm Ginseng Root extract, and several botanical oils for skin moisturizing and nourishing. The mask material was hydrogel and it was a two-piece mask. The black mask with gold particles looked very luxurious. The general fit was pretty good except for the slightly too long nose fit and the weird heart-shaped gap on the chin. The attachment was exceptional like most hydrogel masks. It had a clear and watery essence. I would describe the scent to be light and medicine-like. The mask dried out pretty quickly. I removed the mask after 15mins. My face felt hydrated and supple. No tacky leftover my skin at all. It’s not a bad mask, but somehow I was expecting more for such a gorgeous looking mask. I think $4 is a reasonable price for a hydrogel mask like this. I’m interested in trying other products from the brand.

Mengkou Beier Deer Brightening Mask ($??) – How cute is the packaging of this mask? I’m not sure why it’s called Beier Deer, but it sure looks to me like a giraffe. I’ve never heard of this brand before but I saw a lot of Chinese on the back of the mask so I’m guessing it’s a Chinese company, even though the mask was made in Korea. The mask contains several plant extracts including centella asiatica and boutellaria bacalensis for moisturizing and nourishing. The mask material was soft. It had a fruity (?) scent. I had it on for 20 minutes. My face felt hydrated afterwards; however, it was very sticky.

Jayjun Cosmetic Multi-Vita Tone Up Mask (~$2) – I have tried a few of Jayjun’s masks so far and concluded they were worth the hype. This was my first time seeing this particular one. It contains centella asiatica extract, forsytha suspensa extract, nelumbo nucifera extract, propolis extract, and several vitamins for brightening and clarifying. The mask was on the thicker side, but it fit my skin very well and it was very flattering. It had a floral scent. The essence was watery but cloudy-looking. I had it on for 20 minutes and my face felt hydrated and supple afterwards. I didn’t notice much of a brightening effect.

Berrisom Cocktail Recipe Masks – Piña Colada and Peach Crush (~$2 x 2) – I’m so glad that Piibu included the full line of these cocktail masks from Berrisom.

The piña colada mask contains pineapple fruit extract, coconut water, lemon fruit extract, and several other fruit and herbal extracts for toning, brightening, and anti-aging. The essence smelled just like the drink. The material was soft and fit my face really well. I had it on for 20 minutes and while the mask was on, I felt some cooling sensation. After taking it off, my face felt hydrated and slightly brightened.

The peach crush mask contains peach extract, cranberry water, and other plant extracts for moisturizing. I usually love everything peach. However, the scent of this mask was intense and the peach scent seemed very artifical, so I wouldn’t say I enjoyed the scent a lot. The fit and attachment were as good as other masks in the same line. My face felt hydrated afterwards, without much of any other effect.
