Beauteque Head to Toe April 2015 Bag- Tony Moly

I’m so chuffed to have discovered this bag at my door yesterday! It is the Beauteque Head to Toe April 2015 Bag and this time around, they are featuring 7 Tony Moly products~ ❤

image

Who doesn’t love the cute products of Tony Moly, right? 🙂

image

Info-card;

image

The Tony Moly Face Mix Primer Lip Concealer is a product I cannot wait to try because I have been using other primers and they dry my lips a little. Korean swatches tend to be of those pretty pale-gradient-ombre lips and I guess this would help a lot to reproduce the same effect!

image

It is packaged like a little lip balm.

image

On swatch it looks so much lighter than my skin. It is definitely like a lip balm + concealer. I can’t comment on how it perform yet, but if I like it I will review it with the Face Mix concealer which I am using regularly at the moment! 😀

image

Very happy to have received this in a Head to Toe bag~

Next up is a product I have tried and loved. It is the Tony Moly Tangerine Whitening Hand cream. Can I tell you, this smells absolutely divineeee~

image

Can I have a basket of these on display? Just staring at the cute fruits are therapeutic enough. 😛

image

In case you are curious, this smells alot like the Yeon hallabong products. Tangerines tend to be less sour/ citrusy compared to oranges or lime, and have a unique fragrance to them. The consistency is like something in between body butter and lotion. It doesn’t contain alot of products, but all is good when it looks that cute, no? 🙂

I have also tried this Strawberry seeds 3-step nose pack awhile ago. What it is is a blackhead treatment for the nose area; 1. To open up pores and loosen the dirt and all. 2. A nose strip that helps pull out all the gunk. 3. Soothing pack that calms the skin and shrinks pores.

image

Ingredients and instructions;

image

Many companies have been making these 3-steps nose product. I love it. It’s my guilty pleasure; seeing those suckers getting yank out. Guaranteed satisfaction..

I have also tried this Gold Black Sugar mask scrub before. It is perhaps a dupe of the Skin Food’s black sugar mask and it doesn’t quite measure up but it works well to exfoliate.

image

It smells of burnt caramel sauce. Yum!

image

It’s all gooey and sweet like a jam and you can’t resist but to taste it. But please do not consume your skin care 😛

This cute lips is actually the Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lip scrub! It’s about time to get a lip scrub because I own a gazillion lip products and everytime you put on a really nice color, you have to make sure there aren’t any chappy bits showing~

image

*swoons*

image

I know this won’t last me long at all, but I might repot something else into this lip casing afterwards. It does not smell of anything in particular. ❤

Next are two heart pumice stones. I would never thought of picking up pumice stones for myself but this is a cute addition!

image

Instruction says to wet feet and scrub to remove rough skin. Might do this since summer is approaching and that spells sandals season!

I don’t know what to make of the Tony Moly Make HD straight cream because I don’t want to have straight hair….probably I can pass this on to someone else who does.

image

Instructions;

image

It smells quite potent. :O

image

This bag is adorbs. It is that close to perfection but misses out on the random hair cream thing.  I love the hand cream, primer and nose pack, and don’t mind the rest as I would use them. 😀 That drawstring bag it came in is super useful as well! I will be storing my bendable flats/ beachwear/ sunnies in it~ ❤

You can get the Head to Toe or regular BB bags, and other product offers here: Beauteque.com (also sign up immediately for a $3 rebate) or find their other monthly subscriptions at Beautequemonthly.com. For mask lovers, rejoice because Beauteque is now offering Mask Maven too (10 mask/ month sub)!

This bag was sent for review purposes but the opinions are honest and true to my experience.

Roseroseshop Kbeauty haul April 2015

Apologies for being absent for quite awhile now…I was dealing with a few changes in my life and just had to take on the hiatus. I was glad, however, that I came home to this! ❤image

My Roseroseshop order finally arrived. It was all superbly packed and labelled perfectly. 🙂

Ordered 22/3/2015
Order shipped 27/3/2015
Received 7/4/2015

All-in-all, it took almost 16 days and communication was great. They actually replied and gave a RM tracking number. 😀

image

Everything was bubble-wrapped and nothing was damaged even after traveling half the globe. 🙂 Can you tell which packet I was most excited to rip apart? 😀

I just had to get these Herb Day cleansing tissue from The Face Shop. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Well, not to the level of those Japanese Biore wipes, but these are so affordable and great for sensitive skin.

image

I got my first pack from Beauteque and the rest is history! I have got a huge re-crush on makeup remover wipes since. They are so convenient to have and refreshes your face instantly.

image

These were manufactured this year and lasts all the way till 2017, so I am pretty pleased.

I also just had to get the Skin food cotton pads. Cotton pads all the way from Korea?? Yes, please!

image

I hear good things about it, and I love the embossed design.

Also finally got the OST C20 serum to test out since they were so cheap on RRS! Like the cheapest perhaps? I doubt that it will be fresh…like meh, maybe some old clearance stock or something but…

image

It was manufactured in February 2015!! Gosh thats great 😀

image

I am just finishing up my other vitamin serums so this will be the next in line!

The most exciting part of this haul is perhaps these babies;

image

Yes, 6 different shades of lippies! ❤

image

From top:
[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PK005 Pink In Dolly
[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PK001 Pink In Ribbon

[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PK008 Pink In Funk
[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PP502 Purple In Friday
[ETUDE HOUSE] Dear My Blooming Lips Talk (Pink Talk) – 3.4g No.PK012 Greed Pink
[ETUDE HOUSE] Dear My Wish Lips Talk – 3.5g No.PK001

image

I absolutely adore the packaging! To-die-for.

image

The first moment I set eyes on their pink range, I knew I had to get it.

image

I also saw this shade (PK001) on Get it Beauty, and was totally blown away as it received such good reviews and was voted the best red lippie in SK for the blind test.

These Color in Liquid lips are quite new as they were just released a few months back. They were always OOS on TTK and I got frustrated so shifted over to RRS. I’m so glad I did urgh…all the wait and no gratification was killing me~ 😛

image

So gorgeous… ❤

image

I’m wearing each every day. Perhaps a full Etude House lip review coming up next? 🙂

And of course, samples!!~ I’m happy with these. Some are new and I looove to try the Cosrx one.

image

My haul isn’t super deluxe but I love every bit of it. The shipping is slightly steeper than TTK’s ladder (there is a jump between $12-18) but all-in-all, it is well worth it. RRS has such a competitive pricing now that some sites are raising their prices, but I wish it was easier to navigate….. a button to sort out new products and possibly better tab system would have gotten me shopping there like 24/7.

image

The RRS haul is a winner and I can’t wait to shop with them again~ 🙂

Nep, not sponsored. 😛

Beauteque Head to Toe Milk Bag review

image The bag which I was waiting for is finally here~ The Beauteque Head to Toe Milk Bag is a limited edition bag sold on their main company site Beauteque.com. This bag in particular is sold out due to its popularity but do check out all the other available ones here— dare I recommend you the Head to Toe Breakfast bag? It’s awesome, I promise ❤ I am quite pleased with the info-cards included this time around. They seem to be of upgraded quality. The Beauteque postcard (with a hand-written note by Miss Elina) in which she politely apologized for the logistic problems faced by the company earlier this year had a laminated side to it 🙂 I’m glad shipping has been sorted out, for me at least.

image

This bag contains a total of 7 full-sized products, themed Milk! I was super stoked when I heard about this bag. It definitely did not disappoint. 😉

That black and white woven bag housing all the goodies (except the huge pack of fluffy sponges) is pretty solid. It is of very decent quality and doesn’t smell! Score. 😀 This could very well be one of my favourite, if not the best makeup bag that I have gotten so far~

image

It plays very well to the color of cows as well hehe..

Somang Beauty Credit Milk Hand Cream 80ml ($6.50) 

Beauteque clienteles got to choose between this or the Secret Key hand cream but I chosen this one because I have tried Secret Key’s perfumed hand creams before and thought it would be nice to be able to compare them both. I would say they are comparable in terms of moisture and both smells equally good, although the Secret Key one does seem a little richer and lasts longer.

image

This hand cream smells alot like baby powder- the pleasant kind, not the old lady sort. 🙂

image

It dispenses as a semi-lucent cream and blends without leaving any oily residue. Ingredients include: 800mg of Milk extract, shea butter, olive oil and allantoin. 

image

Obviously this is not strong enough for really dry skin…but my hand does feel soft after using so I have no complaints about this at all! I am a total sucker for hand creams and have 20 opened ones lying about at one time so they are always welcomed in my bags/hauls. You can PM me for recommendations lol!

Milk Wash Off Sponge ($10)

it is not everyday that we see facial sponges in subs/boxes so this is a really nice surprise! Look at how cute the packaging is~ ❤

image

I left mine to soak in warm water because of the slight smell it has..not sure if the flight has anything to do with that. However, they are sooooo soft and dense at the same time. I can almost feel as if I was using an unmeltable marshmallow to cleanse LOL~

image

This might work well with the next product (cleanser) and my beauty friend, Mummyisbeauty did recommend using them to remove mud masks. That’s genius! More economical than cotton pads and less harsh too~ I will also experiment them on the TFS massaging cream which i have gotten from the previous Beauteque bag too!

Skinfood Wildberry Milk Cleansing Foam ($12)

This reminds me very much of the Hada Labo AHA/BHA cleansing foam which I adore alot. It is similar texture-wise, but this smells divine although it looks deceivingly plain. 😛

image

150ml will last you forever perhaps because all you need is a pea size and some water to create enough foam for your face! It is a white, pearly, paste-like cleanser and contains moisturizing milk extracts plus various anti-oxidant agents. hmmm~ ❤

image

I can’t fault it at all, it removes makeup nicely. I wish my phone is waterproof but it isn’t so you would have to take my word for it. 😀 Thumbs up!

Secret Key Milk Brightening Toner ($19)

I am totally backlogged with toners so I won’t be opening this one for awhile… Honestly though, I love Secret Key products and I think most kbeauty bloggers would share my opinion on this one. They make some really great products marketed at affordable price tags. 🙂

image

This bottle apparently contains colostrum (thats like breast milk for you haha) that has skin growth factor, natural protein and natural AHA, so it is effective for skin brightening. Its abundant vitamin, minerals and ion are helpful for enhancing skin immunity. Various other ingredients (yes, it has 15 botanical extracts in it!) also help balance and moisturize the skin.

image

This toner is a slightly milky liquid that absorbs quickly onto the skin. Last I checked, it is free of the 5 harmful ingredients including mineral oils, paraben, animal oils, yadah yadah…

image

I’m pretty sold on this bottle and hear all the good things about it so far! Mine expires in 2017 (phew) — I also checked all the other products from this Beauteque bag and they are still fresh from Korea! ❤

Skinfood Shea Butter Milk Lip Care Balm ($7)

It’s always great to have another product from Skinfood. This lip balm promises to take care of chapped, cracked, dry lips. No explanations needed!

image

Somang Danahan Milk Mask ($3)

I still prefer sleeping packs over sheet masks but I will give this a try soon, especially on drier days.

“This milk essence mask contains 110mg milk extracts, it helps to maintain skin moisture level and brings long lasting hydration to the skin. It leaves the skin soft, smooth and supple.”

image

Like most face masks, you’d put the mask on cleansed and toned face and then leave it for 15 minutes before peeling off and massaging the leftover essence into the skin.

image

Skinfood Milk Creamy Nail Polish ($8.50)

Okay, I have tried many Skinfood nail polish before and this is the worst one, I fear. 😦 The color does not flatter me at all–unless I am heading to the clubs, and it neither dry nor apply easily.

image

I do love the grip on the cap though.

image

The outcome is a huge siggghhhh. I do think Skinfood’s vita nails range are much better. Not sure why this one is so runny and bleh.

___

I may or may not have ranked the bag contents according to my favorite to least favorite item on first (or second) impression. I really can’t decide which I would love more among the top 4 tbh! ❤

image

This bag totaled up to $66 in Beauteque pricing but I think it is closer to $40 but that still makes it a great deal for only $26++ plus shipping. You can get an extra $2 off with the code LUCKY2 for Saint Patrick’s day (they have constant deals on their site if this expires).

You can get the regular BB bags and other product offers here: Beauteque.com (also sign up immediately for a $3 rebate) or find their other monthly subscriptions at Beautequemonthly.com. For mask lovers, rejoice because Beaeteque is now offering Mask Maven too (10 mask/ month sub)!

Some of you may be confused if you are new to Beauteque. They have two separate sites: one is the main company site where you can find all the older BB bags/ Head-to-toe bags/ Blogger collaborations. The other site, beautequemonthly.com is for their regular monthly subscription. For all bags, shipping applies according to countries. 🙂
