Purple Tale Unboxing + Once Upon A Neck Cream Review

A week ago I received a lovely PR package from one of the brands that I have always been curious about, Purpletale. I discovered about brand when I first saw Ryanraroar's (Singaporean male beauty blogger) Instagram post about it a few months back. My curiosity of the brand developed since then, I just thought that they were unique and captivating in some kind of way.

I feel very grateful and lucky when Purpletale have given me the chance to try out their products. I was asked to choose 2 products that I wanted to review, I choose their Once Upon A Neck Cream - because I thought I need to take more care of my neck and Setting the Scene Essence - hoping that it can help to fade my blemishes since it contains stellar ingredients such as ginseng, peptide complexes, adenosine and niacinamide

As soon as I opened the box, not only it is lightly scented, I also didn't expect to receive more than the 2 intended products! PT wow-ed me with their generosity, especially when I've been dying to get my hands on their 5 Steps to Lovely Skin and the fluffy The Beauty Of You headband!!!! Thank you so much for the generosity, PT. I can't be grateful and thankful enough. I also received a cute mini card, handwritten by PT founder, Young Ji. I love receiving handwritten cards!


Purpletale is not a beauty line.

Purpletale is a movement. 

We believe that when you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you can’t help but share goodness with the world around you.

That’s why we only use wholesome, enriching ingredients that nourish your skin and make it easy to feel beautiful from the inside out.

Our products are simple and easy to use, making your regimen feel less like a process and more like pampering. 

Together, we can help everyone see their beauty and share their story.

purpletale: The beauty of YOU.


Our mission at purpletale is quite simple: to empower everyone to discover, love and celebrate who they are.

How do we plan to make that happen?

Why Purpletale:

The name purpletale is a combination of two things that we love the most - the color purple and stories. But more importantly, it represents what we want to achieve with the brand.

Young Ji's Story:

Hi I’m Young-Ji.

I would never have used the word “Beautiful” to describe myself a few years ago.
Not with the extreme expectations of beauty out there today. Not while being bombarded with gorgeous faces and exotic races on TV, magazine covers and all over my newsfeeds, day in and day out. Not in this world where it’s so easy to modify anything that’s wrong with you, whether digitally or surgically.

I was cute. Pretty, at best. But I would never have looked at myself and said “Hi Beautiful.”

Too much of our time is spent in the mirror on a fault finding mission and trying achieve someone else’s sensationalized standard. We focus on what’s not right with us, what we wish were different, and not learning to appreciate the person looking back at us in the mirror.

I wanted to change that—to help other people see the beauty in themselves. That’s why I created purpletale. Wholesome products with effective ingredients for loving the skin you’re in, that help to enable causes focused on boosting self-esteem. purpletale reminds us that the best thing you can be is yourself. Everything we do stems from the basic belief that you don’t need help becoming beautiful, sometimes you just need a little help seeing that you already are. 

That’s my story of beauty. I’d love to hear yours.

Her story is so inspiring! Lets take a moment to congratulate Young Ji eonnie on PT launching~ I do not know her personally but I am proud of her and the people behind PT.

Now after getting you guys inspired, lets get on to the unboxing!

Once Upon A Neck Cream - USD 39.99/50ml

Your face may be the star of the show, but your neck also shares the spotlight. The skin around the collarbone and neck is thinner and more delicate, and it can quickly start to feel like the ignored, ugly stepsister if it's left untreated. Our revitalizing cream gives your neck the attention it deserves by tightening and keeping wrinkles at bay. No ugly ducklings here; just smooth, perfect swans. 

Think of it as your neck's knight in shining armor -- protecting you from aging and fighting to help bring forth the radiant, more youthful skin that hides within. Apply daily and show off your neck with confidence.

love love loveeeeeeee their description. I am a sucker for fairytales.

How To Use
Using an upward motion, gently massage the cream over your neck and jawline. Best if used both morning and night.

Main Ingredients
Compromised of ginseng, peptide complexes, adenosine, and other key ingredients, this anti-aging formula helps hydrate, firm, and tighten to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Ginseng saponin: The hero of our story; this revolutionary ingredient of Asian skincare saves the day with nourishing and antioxidant properties to help restore and preserve a more youthful look.

Peptide complexes: This anti-aging powerhouse prompts natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging.

Adenosine: this ingredient doesn’t believe in reading between the lines, just getting rid of them - and without irritating or inflaming your skin in the process. This yeast derived ingredient penetrates deeply into skin to improve appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while supporting healthy cell function.

"Your face may be the star, but your neck shares the spotlight. Give it a little extra loving with out revitalizing cream that helps tighten and keep wrinkles at bay" oh gosh how I love how this sounds so much. It is just smartly thought out and really convinced me to get this neck cream. Seriously though, imagine having a youthful face but a saggy neck, it just don't match. I never thought of caring for my neck seriously before. I like how PT is attentive towards neck care.

Top view

****sorry for the inconsistency of the backgrounds. I tried my very best to get the best lighting in the house :( someone please sponsor me a lighting setting.

The neck cream comes in a circular box, fancy. I open the box and the neck cream will be sitting there, like on its own throne.

like this~

Underneath the 'throne', there lies a plastic spatula. I like it when companies are thoughtful about having a spatula. Kudos to companies that include spatulas for tub products!

The actual neck cream. it has a hard glass body, need to be cautious when holding because I don't want to break it. The packaging can be bulky for travelling, but you can always store it in a smaller container.

MFG and EXP date can be found at bottom of packaging

Product is protected with a plastic film to prevent the cream from spilling

With flash

Not too thick but rich, spreads well. Absorbed well into the skin too, it doesn't feel heavy and greasy though I live in a humid area. I compared my hands with and without the cream and my hand with the cream appeared brighter. The cream made my neck brighter too temporarily. The brightening effect is mild and natural. Hope the effect will be permanent after a long use.

it smells so divineeeeeee without being overwhelming. It is hard for me to describe the scent, it smells like a perfume that is appropriate for a house's living room. it just smells so nice.

My final thoughts:
I am a 20-year old and already have 2 very fine neck fold lines, I am not sure if it is visible to others but it bothers me a bit. I wonder is it normal to already develop those fold lines at age 20?

I never used any neck creams before, this is my first. I usually just spread the leftover face moisturizer and essence from sheetmasks to my neck.

I apply the neck cream day and night via massaging, sharing its goodness to my collarbones as well. I haven't observe any changes to my neck lines but throughout a week of using it, its been enjoyable. I love it so much(especially for the smell!) that sometimes I apply it twice on my neck during night time and even at random times during the day. I hope there will be improvements after a long term use.

I do not feel any tightening sensation or might have yet to. Its been gentle to me. No breakouts as well.

The price may be a bit high up but I assume that must've been from their fancy packaging and amazing ingredients. 50ml just for the neck alone is a generous amount anyway, it is worth the money because this product is just delightful.

Anyway, the neck cream is moisturizing and hydrating. It makes the neck look visibly hydrated. Once again, the cream doesn't feel heavy, non-greasy and doesn't make my neck prone to perspire.

Pros +
- Moisturizing
- Hydrating
- Smells like heaven
- Brightening

Cons -
- bulky packaging
- not travel-friendly
- hard glass may break
- expensive
- I still love everything about the neck cream despite all of the above.

Will I purchase?
I knew it when I first started using it that I will be purchasing this amazing neck cream.

Will I recommend?
Oh definitely. The neck cream is just as divine as any of Purpletale other products, I only read good reviews about them so far. Even Julie of is really impressed with Purpletale Ode to Hydration Facial Cream. You guys can read about her review HERE.

Where to purchase?
You can purchase directly from Purpletale website at HERE is the direct product link. PT offers free shipping for orders above USD 40 and ships to any countries that offer deliveries via UPS and FedEx.

Reaching a minimum of USD 40 will be easy since most of their product prices are close to reaching the amount.

Purpletale is a brand that your truly have to look for. They are winning with their products description, naming and ingredients. Reading every of their products description really made me feel like I am in Wonderland. This brand is going places seriously. And if you are a lover of purple and skincare, it is just an obvious reason to get your hands on Purpletale products.

Thank you so much, Purpletale for making me feel like a Princess for having an extra pampering for my neck. You guys, drown yourself into a skincare fairytale by checking out more of Purpletale products at Do stalk their Instagram too at @hellopurpletale because they have amazing photos.

Do look forward! \(^ω^\)

LaF Skin 7 Solutions Ampoules x Adventure Time Collaboration Review

Rejoice, Adventure Time lovers!
Ofcourse I was intrigued when I saw this collaboration. To be really honest, I wasn't so interested in the brand before the collaboration come out since their previous packaging looked plain. I guess cute packaging makes it, huh?
I only asked LaF(Lost and Found), the company, about the Jake ampoule (Pore & Calming) since it is related to my skin concern, but they are soooo generous to send me 3 ampoules, 2 sheetmasks and couple of cute Adventure Time stickers!!!!! It was unexpected and my heart's content was (and always) filled with joy when I receive surprise gifts. Thanks, LaF! I use the stickers to decorate my boring laptop.❤

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…
