Beauteque April BB bag- Mad for Plaid edition

image

Hi guys~ Bringing you the Beauteque April BB bag- Mad for Plaid edition this time. I personally love plaids! Although the theme does not translate throughout, they did include this very pretty plaid makeup bag which fits everything. 🙂

image

This edition includes 7 products, valued at RRP $45 (estimated from Amazon). Values may differ with shipping.

image

The bag was scented with honey and on the get go, I fell in love with this; the Holika Holika Honey Sleeping Pack in Blueberry. How can anyone not love honey + blueberry? ❤

image

The transition into spring did take it’s toll on my skin, and I had dry patches on my cheeks and nose (thanks to allergies) but this pack instantly hydrates my skin and soothes it. Have I already mentioned how divine this smells?

image

It is of a honey + cream consistency and isn’t as tacky as real honey. You do feel that there is a slight stickiness after application but most of it is absorbed with proper massaging. I have used this almost every other night (using my OST serum + vitamin oil alternately) and my skin is thanking me! 😀

Seeing this It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm (Grape) is like seeing an old friend to me. I had one a few months ago and received envious stares whenever I whipped it out of my bag.

image

It smells totally of grape juice and works fine~ I am not a fan of finger-dipping into my skin care but hey, I’ll make do with a packaging as cute as this.

image

Getting every other color and laying them on a cake tier display for my female guests at my wedding. #ideas #goals

The Mizon Water Volume Aqua Gel Cream is yet another old friend of mine. It is a cooling, hydrating minimalist gel. Pop one in the bag for a quick skin relief after a day under the blazing sun and you’ll see. 😀

image

Also appreciating the info in English. More companies are adapting to this to help sell worldwide!

image

I know some may be confused as to why we get a razor in a BB bag but I needed one anyways, so I’m pretty glad to get it. 😛 Why does the girl on the package reminds me of Shara Shara’s sun cream doll.

image

Probably not the best razor in the world but it is useful~

image

I have not had many body patch experiences and am willing to try this Holika Holika S Body Jiggle Patch. 

image

This one is different from the traditional heating types in that it forms carbonated bubbles to help firm up the skin area. You’d have to apply the gel and then patch on for 30-40 minutes. The bubbles produces a tingling sensation- which is probably why this is called a jiggle patch (?).

image

Well, we know bikini season is coming soon so why not.

Personally not a fan of powder washes because I can’t get over the hassle of preparing a water bath for my face lol.
The Hanaka Camellia Powder wash comes in a pack of 7 and claims to act as an anti-inflammatory and anti-aging wash.

image

Without a large clean bowl, I might opt for my favourite method; the spritz bottle. We will see..

image

So far, I have never heard of Hanaka, but Beauteque seemingly wants to introduce us to the brand. They added two masks from them as well: Whitening and Oil-control.

image

The packaging looks really solid. These are manufactured in Taiwan btw.

image

image

I have not given them a shot yet as I was using the sleeping pack, but I might soon.

image

I love this edition. The honey mask and macaron are my favourite (I may have arranged my posts in the order of fav to least fav items). ❤ I am never a huge fan of masks because I don’t have the time to indulge in them, but the rest of the bag I would definitely use. 😀

image

We are always discovering new things from these BB bags, and I find them to be of good value as long as I get one new product to love. The bags they come in are also great to have for any occasion, and to house skin care gifts for friends and family~ 🙂

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~ ❤

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.

image

image

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.

image

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~ ❤ ❤

image

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

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!
