I really am enjoying my items that I have ordered from Beautibi and when I saw that Jennifer released a new Mask set, Brighten Up Face Sheet Variety Set, I was torn initially and then decided to get it. It does contain brands that are unknown to me and I really wanted to try them out.
Beautibi has box selections (click here to view current boxes) as well as a shop as well that carries Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese brands. They do not yet ship their boxes internationally, but all of the store items can be purchased and shipped internationally at this time.
Pronounced, “Beauty + Be”, “bi” in Japanese means “beauty” and at Beautibi, we focus on not only being beautiful, but feeling beautiful by taking care of everything, inside out. Beautibi’s mission is to introduce the best skincare products from Asia and make it easily accessible to the rest of the world. We focus on the quality and effectiveness of every product before it is released to Beautibi users. We also want to make skincare and makeup affordable, so we are always looking for products that fit different lifestyles. We recommend patch testing products, as we know not everyone’s skin will react the same to every product.
Can’t decide which masks to get? Get an assorted arrangement of face masks! This is the newest product we are launching to make shopping at Beautibi even easier. The Brighten Up variety box will have 6 different masks that are focused on restoring skin complexion, brighten dull skin, and deeply hydrate and moisturize.
My mask set came wrapped in aqua tissue (box is not included with the mask variety set, as it does save on shipping costs) and I received samples, cool confetti and coupons, which I will share with you at the end of this blog post 😀
All of the masks in this set are from Taiwan
MasKingdom Hydra Feel Optimum Hydration Masque This is from MasKingdom’s Metropolitan Series line of mask and the design on these series reminds me of the 1920’s. This series uses Japanese silk to create their sheet masks and This is the 02 mask in the Metropolitan Series, which is a moisturizing, brightening and replenishing mask ~ good for for all skin types and the following issues:
- dry, dull skin

MasKingdom Very Precious Mask Another mask from the Metro series and this mask has snail slime in it, which is good for all skin types, including sensitive skin. This is repairing mask will leave your face smooth, soothed and moisturized. This is the 04 mask in this series and just like the 02 mask, it is good for for all skin types and the following issues:
- dry, dull skin
- pimple, acne oily skin
- dull, blemished skin
- wrinkled skin
- overall enhancements
I have found that snail filtrate works for just about all skin types and really does a great job with healing and smoothing your skin. This also contains cogon grass (imperata cylindrical), which contains potassium and helps retain water in your epidermis, as well as niacinamide and dipotassium glycyrrhizinate (licorice root extract), which helps fade hyper-pigmentation. 30 mL RV $6.00
I did use this mask and found it very cooling and refreshing. The silk sheet was a very good fit on my face and there was essence still in the bag, so I smoothed that over the mask and on my neck. You can see how wet the mask is right out of the bag in the photo below. After 15 minutes passed, I removed the mask and my skin was still moist. Once my skin dried, it felt smooth, soft and very hydrated ~ no oily or greasy residue. I was hoping that the mask would be gold, like the package displayed, but it isn’t gold ~ just a standard white mask color!

If you are interested in the other types in the Metropolitan series, the chart below helps tell you the number in the series and what issues/skin types it targets
MasKingdom 2 Step “Lucky Charm” Mask The “I Wish” series of masks from MasKingdom seem to all contain bitter gourd and resveratrol as two of their ingredients. However, each mask in this series has a different purpose, so there will be different ingredients that they focus on. The Lucky Charm mask has orange fruit essence ~ high in Vitamin C and is an excellent antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient ~ and tranexamic acid, which is skin barrier repair ingredient and helps skin recover from any damage as well as reducing hyper-pigmentation. I do not see tranexamic acid in the ingredient list, so that is weird. Unless tranexamic acid is going by another name here. However, there is niacinamide in here, so that will be a skin brightening agent and evens out skin tone. Value $6.00
Bitter Gourd/melon extract ~ Rich in Vitamin C, powerful antioxidant that helps prevent wrinkles and aging by combating free radicals. Also helps in removing hyper-pigmentation spot.
Tetradecyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea Trifluoroacetate (TAUT) is excellent for sagging skin and gives skin a firmer and fuller look
Bifida Ferment Lysate, a yeast ferment filtrate, is rich in polysaccharides and is known for its moisturizing properties.
Serum: Aqua, methylpropanedoil, hydroxyethyl urea, PEG-55, glycosyl trehalose, hydrogenated starch hydrolysate, triethylhexanoin, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, crambe abyssinica seed oil, orbignya oleifera (babassu palm) seed oil, niacinamide, sodium polyacryloyldimethyl taurate, hydrogenated polydecene, trideceth-10, sclerotium gum, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, chlorphenesin, oryza sativa (rice) lees extract, aqua, butylene glycol, sodium citrate, lactobacillus/olea euopaea leaf ferment extarct, quaternium-15, EDTA-4Na, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, sodium hyaluronate, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, citrus junos (yuzu) peel water cosDNA.com analysis

MasKingdom 2 Step “Made a Miracle” Mask I received this mask from my “Yes Summer” box and it is the first MasKingdom mask I tried. This is a nice mask, again with the Japanese natural silkworm silk sheet, and it contains bitter gourd and resveratrol ~ made from red grapes and can help prevent skin aging, high in antioxidants and will protect skin from free radical damage, and remove dullness from your skin. This is a brightening mask from MasKingdom, which is the #1 top selling boutique mask in Taiwan. MasKingdom masks are made with fruit and vegetable ingredients from Taiwan and are free from parabens, alcohol, artificial fragrances and any animal ingredients. They do not contain the 26 common harmful fragrances listed by the EU commission and they do not use any of the 102 ingredients listed with the Japanese Ministry of Health that could cause skin disorders. SGS allergy tested and safe for sensitive skin. I liked how it fit and it is nice to have the serum afterwards to apply to my face, just to complete the spa-like treatment! 2-piece mask Value $6.00
Some interesting ingredients in this mask
Crambe Abyssinica seed oil ~ This plant grows in the Mediterranean and Eastern Africa regions, and it is often compared to Jojoba oil. However, this oil has a much higher content of erucic acid, which contains omega-9, a non essential fatty acid. This oil quickly absorbs and penetrates the outer layer of your skin and hydrates, nourishes and moisturizes while creating a protective layer, helping prevent dehydration. This oil is similar to our own oil(sebum) and can also be used to control our oil production.
Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp extract ~ This is a white mushroom (fungus), originally from China, and has been used in Oriental beauty and medicine for centuries. It helps retain moisture to your skin, protects your skin and has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties. It also helps with skin elasticity and has anti-aging properties as well.
Peucedanum Ostruthium leaf extract ~ Also known as Masterwort ~ I’ve heard of mugwort, but not masterwort! This native Swiss Alp plant produces flavonoids and phenolic acid, which help soothe your skin, while protecting it. It helps repair stressed skin as helping with skin irritation.
Hydrolyzed Pea extract ~ Repairs skin, making it healthy, smooth and evens out skin tone

I have to say, these are some of the prettiest and unique designs for facial sheet masks that I have seen ~ Roarin’ Twenties/Art Deco vibe and beautifully drawn Fairy Tale type of images from MasKingdom and L’Herboflore’s botanical print and deep sea oasis drawings. Just looking at the mask packages was half of the fun! This box certainly delivered with the “Brighten Up” theme ~ all of these masks have ingredients to help even out and brighten your skin tone, as well as targeting other issues, such as pores, hydration, healing, soothing. I hope that Beautibi does more mask boxes ~ I would love to see more L’Herboflore masks at their site, after looking thru all of the different varieties offered ~ they have an Oriental Herb and foodie masks – the black tea and cocoa ones look interesting!
This box is still on sale at Beautibi for $29.00 and I received a retail value of $32.00. It doesn’t have the greatest value on the masks at first glance, but then when I realize that these are masks that are not easily found here in the USA or other online sites, then this becomes a good deal for any mask addict.
