Earlier this year, I tried my hand at some Korean face masks. I used them four days in a row and selfied along the way, charting each and every change my face went through. Now, it’s important to know that I’m not a beauty product buff in any way. I wash my face with drugstore-bought Cetaphil (when I remember to) and coconut oil is the fanciest moisturizer I think I’ve ever used. So I didn’t exactly have high expectations for these face masks, because I never really believed products like that worked anyway.
However, throughout my experimental week, I noticed that my skin reached a whole new level of smooth and dewy. Some hyperpigmentation disappeared, and my face just had a general glow that it didn’t have before. Of course, I was immediately hooked. I went to the ends of the Internet earth and back in an attempt to order another batch (I purchased my first pile of them when I was visiting South Korea), but soon realized that these Korean face masks weren’t exactly easy to get my hands on once I was back on American soil.
That’s when Piibu came in and saved the day. Piibu (the Korean word for “skin,” pronounced pee-boo) is a monthly subscription box that sends a bundle of yummy Korean face masks directly to your door step. You get a variety of 8 to 10 different face masks, each one from a top Korean beauty brand.
HelloGiggles spoke with Daniel Yi, the co-founder and CEO of Piibu, who says,
Piibu also saves you the trouble of having to buy in bulk to save on all the international shipping costs.
This was a no brainer. I had to try this Piibu thing, especially when I saw how low the prices were. If you make a six-month commitment, you can pay $14 a month to get a box of Korean face masks dropped off at your mailbox. Commit to three months and you pay $14.50 a month, and if you’re the commitment shy type, you can just pay $15 a month and cancel anytime. I mean, that’s a steal. So I ordered my first box and waited patiently for the magic to arrive.
