This is a review of May’s box. The above picture shows everything in this month’s box.
G9 Skin Slice Mask Sheets – Strawberry and Peach (~$2 x 2) – I’ve been on a roll with good slice masks lately. I first learned that G9 made slice masks when Piibu included them in May’s and June’s boxes. There are a total of 4 types; the others are Lemon and Cucumber.
I love that these slice masks are in big pieces and you can definitely cover half of your face with the 6 pieces included in the pack. The mask material was very soft and flattering. I love the almost 3D-looking prints.
The peach mask contains 1000 ppm peach extract and collagen for moisturizing and firming. I love peach everything and the essence definitely had a sweet and pleasant peach scent. I could definitely feel the nourishing and moisturizing effect after using it.
The strawberry mask contains 1000 ppm strawberry extract and “berry-complex” for revitalizing and hydrating. If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know that I don’t like artificial strawberry scents. Unfortunately, the essence had a pretty strong artificial berry scent. I really enjoyed the results from these slice masks, though. They made my skin feel soft, moisturized, and slightly brightened.
These retail for about $2 per pack of 6 slices. I would definitely like to try the lemon one.
Results: Peach 4/5, Strawberry 4.5/5
Scent: Peach 4/5, Strawberry 2/5
Overall: Peach 4/5, Strawberry 3.5/5
Tonymoly Pureness 100 Collagen Mask Sheet Elasticity (~$1) – Although I’m not a huge fan of Tonymoly’s skincare products in general, their Pureness 100 line is one of my favorite sheet mask lines from them. I had not tried the collagen one before receiving it in this month’s box.
It contains glacier water, betaine, and collagen for boosting elasticity and radiance.
Like the other Pureness 100 masks, the material was a thicker cotton material and contained black particles that looked like seeds. It had a floral scent and jelly-like essence. I had it on for 20 minutes and my face felt moisturized without any tacky feeling afterwards.
Nature Republic Aqua Collagen Solution Mask Sheet ($?) – It appears that they are no longer making this mask. A newer, similar mask from NR, which looks almost the same but is made with hydrogel, retails for about $4. This mask contains grapefruit extract, hydrolyzed collagen, and mushroom extract for hydrating.
The ingredients list sounded amazing. The essence had a creamy texture which surprised me a little. It had a pretty small fit in general unlike most NR masks I have tried. I had it on for 20 minutes. My face felt slightly moisturized afterwards.
Papa Recipe Bombee Fruitables Purple Squeeze Lifting Mask and Green Squeeze Relaxing Mask (<$1 x 2) – I’m so happy that Piibu Box decided to keep featuring these Papa Recipe Bombee Fruitables masks.
The purple mask contains purple sweet potato, eggplant, beet, blueberry, and bilberry extracts for lifting, firming, and nourishing. It had a sweet berry-like scent. The mask material was soft and thin. It was soaked in plenty of watery essence. I had it on for about 25 minutes and my face felt very hydrated and plumped.
The green mask contains broccoli, green tea, avocado, kale, and kiwi extracts for soothing and moisturizing. It had a kiwi-like scent. I had it on for 25 minutes. My face was left slightly tacky but very calmed, hydrated, and slightly brightened.
So far I’ve tried four types of these Fruitables masks. I think the green one is my favorite out of the four. I think these are very nice, basic hydrating masks in general. I still think that their signature honey masks are their best mask. I love the fact that Piibu featured these masks in their boxes because they started appearing in Marshall’s and TJ Maxx and I will definitely grab another box of the green ones next time I see them.
Results: Purple 4/5, Green 4.5/5
Overall: Purple 4/5, Green 4.5/5
Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask – Bamboo and Rose (~$1) – I’m very happy to keep trying the upgraded versions of Innisfree’s My Real Squeeze masks.
The bamboo mask contains centella asiatica, peony, matricaria, and bamboo extracts for soothing and moisturizing. The mask material was soft and slightly on the thicker side but the fit and attachment were pretty good in general. It had a watery clear essence. It was unscented. I had the mask on for 20 minutes and my face felt hydrated and nourished.
The rose mask contains niacinamide and rose, centella asiatica, and peony extracts for brightening and smoothing. It had a light rose scent. I had it on for 20 minutes and my face felt hydrated. I didn’t notice much of a brightening effect.
Results: Bamboo 4/5, Rose 3.5/5
Scent: Bamboo unscented, Rose 4/5
Overall: Bamboo 4/5, Rose 3.5/5
