Beauteque Sweethearts February BB Bag review

image

Yes, it is nearing the end of March, but this bag is too awesome to not be reviewed! 😛 The Beauteque Sweethearts February BB Bag features a sweet, sweet beauty collection in conjunction with valentines~ ❤

image

This bag contains 8 products altogether, including a lifestyle product!

image

Before reviewing each products, lets talk about how convenient this makeup pouch is. It is padded on the outside making it super useful to store eye shadows, bronzers and press powders, and it has two pockets on the inside so we don’t have to fumble about to look for that brow pencil or nose strip etc. 😀

image

Definitely making into my top 3 pouches received from Beauteque so far~ ❤

The Echoice Peptide Cream ($14.99) is simply an all-in-one cream that promises to moisturize and firm up the skin after cleansing and toning. It comes in a no-frill drugstore-like design.

The tube was unsealed and pumps out immediately after I unscrewed the cap. It’s a white cream that feels a tad heavier than some moisturizers that I normally use… almost hand-cream-like. There is also a slight fragrance to it, which does not bother me. What does is the feeling that this could be too much if you use an essence/ ampoule/ lotion beneath. I would say just use this alone after toning.

I have not seen much changes after using, but I guess we should give it some time, yes?

The Tony Moly Petit Art Perfume Mist in fresh green ($12) is probably my favourite item in this bag! It is an absolute fabulous find because of how lovely it smells. I can’t describe it well enough…perhaps green tea + green apple + grass or something fresh. Anywho, I’m spritzing this like crazy and looking to buy a backup already~ ❤ ❤

I’m pretty sure that girl illustrated looks familiar….

image

It is after all lots of ester (chemistry yo) contributing to the scent, but be aware that lavender extract is also listed as one of ingredients to those ladies who are allergic to it.

I’m curious as to how the other variations would smell but I really love this one. Garh… ❤

It’s Skin Mango White Lip and Eye Remover ($5) comes in a pack of 15 and reminds me very much of the Skinfood seaweed one I have purchased awhile ago. It is an oil-type remover unlike cleansing tissues. So just to be sure you are picking up the right one, if you see “lip and eye” chances are they are oil-type removers.

image

And I’m pretty certain they meant mangosteen from that illustration rather than mangos. Entirely different fruit (not that I can pick up the smells any way…).

image

They work fine, and smell alright but I don’t fancy the oily sensation personally. It makes my eyes water a little (like the oil+powder gokmul toner everyone likes). I think my eyes has aversion to oil and alcohol or something XP

I am, however, deeply in love with the Herb Day cleansing ones also received from a Beauteque bag before ❤ Repurchased!

The Skinfood Black bean Eye Brow Pencil ($11) has also made it to my staple list. I find it very useful to have two sides: a drawing charcoal and a brow brush.

image

I think this might take awhile to run out like most Korean brow pencils. I do have pretty unruly brows and am using out my browcaras. 😛

I would have personally purchased this A’Pieu Non Co Tea Tree Emulsion ($12.99) to satiate my curiosity but thankfully received one instead in a BB bag! It was so cheap on another shopping site and I wondered if it will actually work.

image

I had not have a chance to try this yet,… (using up my Tosowoong Tea tree lotion first) but I will, soon!

image

It is 150ml of presumably good stuff and right for my age group too. Fingers crossed~

Beauteque also added in 2 masks for this bag;

Humanpia Costech Arbutin Essence Mask

Apparently good for restoring elasticity, brightening and firming the skin.

image

It has Japanese on the back of it but instructions are otherwise the same. 15-20 minutes is all it needs. Am pretty sure this is from Korea but probably a repackaged version to sell to Japanese women.

image

NextBeau Moisture/ Collagen Aqua Mask

The description is pretty funny: Collagen makes the skin moisturized for a long time as abundant moisture sensation by containing collagen; but all is well…we Europeans mostly don’t speak English as out first language either. 😛

image

image

No surprises here…the same instructions as usual.

The Etude House Collagen Eye Patch ($3.99) is not a stranger in my vanity. My mum hoards these eye patches and I steal them from her refrigerator stash because they soothe my computer eyes~

image

image

Another surprisingly lovely find is this Hair Spa towel ($9.99) which I have been using since the day I received this bag! I had one similar one from Daiso Japan and that one is in rags due to overuse lol. This makes me so happy because I was about to go on a terry cloth hair towel hunt~ Thumbs up for Beauteque’s curation! ❤

image

This bag has to be one of the best so far with 3 items already making into my routine staples list, not to mention that pouch housing all the goodies! I think I like this more than the January or March ones ❤ ❤ I am sniffing that fresh green perfume mist like a glu sniffer while typing this all the while..argh love!
