Ilpumsong Goback Mask Review (Courtesy of MiniB Beauty) | Finn W

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
I won a box of Ilpumsong Goback Mask sheet on a Instagram giveaway which was hosted by @minibbeauty

In exchange of winning the prize, I've collaborated with MiniB Beauty to provide my honest review about the mask.


Description (taken from BuyKorea)

You can see a remarkable change in your skin due to the stronger anti-aging effect. / Pine needles' essence that has antioxidant effacement covers up for your skin texture, improves your wrinkles, and makes you look younger.

Even more than that, this is a premium mask applying a three-dimensional solution that soothes sensitive skin as well as adds enough energy and moisture and moisturizes your skin.

In short, the claims are to improve skin texture, anti-aging, antioxidant, prevent wrinkles, soothe and moisturize skin.


The box comes with a set of 5 mask sheets. Another info of the mask that I found on MiniB Beauty's website (source) is that the mask is made with Environmental Working Group (www.ewg.org) approved green ingredients. The masks contain ZERO Synthetic Fragrance, Synthetic Colors, Mineral Oils, Silicon Oils and also NO Parabens.


About Ilpumsong

I check out the masks brand's website at www.krbeautylab.com and found out more information. Here are what I found:

- The brand's star ingredient is PINE NEEDLE OIL which is used to accelerate skin regeneration and provide whitening effects
- and Ilpumsong also has been awarded with The World Luxury Brand Awards and Consumer Power Hit Awards


I have used the Ilpumsong Goback Masks two times before proceeding with this review. I featured the masks in my February 2017 sheet mask empties on my Instgram @fnn_w

Spoiler: I love the mask!


The packaging looks simple but I like it and it has that 'clean' and 'love the Earth' feeling.

Ingredients to note: (not in order)

- There are alot of natural extracts, I love seeing them in products! There are quite an amount of Leaf Extracts, Flower Extracts, Fruit Oil, Flower Oil, Seed Oil, Root Extracts
- Its star ingredient which is PINE is listed 12th
- There is also Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, a peptide to retain skin moisture and Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate which is a fermented ingredient that contains natural amino acids, vitamins and anti-oxdiants (though the percentage amount is not stated)
- Betaine and Adenosine are known for its anti-aging benefits
- Allantoin for skin moisturizing
- Arginnie is a form of Amino Acid which heals to repair and clear skin
- Sodium Hyaluronate and Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid for moisturizing dry skin
- Hydrolyzed Collagen for skin elasticity

Material, Essence, Scent


Material: Thin almost transparent tencel-type, the kind of thinness that allows your flaws to peek through

Essence: clear, thick, almost like a gelly

Scent: has a nice plant herbal smell, which I assumed is the smell of a Pine. I love smells like this and in fact I have a Pine-scented room spray. The smell is not ovewhelming to me.

Fitting


- The eye loops are a bit wide
- Short nose part
- The fit is good to me anyway cause there are not much excess on the edges and the adherence is good
- the mask is very saturated with essence


My Thoughts and The Mask's Effects

The first time I had it on for 40+ minutes and it still stayed wet especially on the cheeks area and when I squeezed out the essence, there were a plenty which can be enough to slather on my whole body.

The second time I had it on for 30 minutes, still, it was wet and I could've had it on longer but the center areas (forehead, nose, above lip and chin) were already dried up.

In terms of moisturizing...

After massaging in the essence, it leaves a sticky finish that lasted quite awhile, probably an hour or so then the stickiness dissipates and you can layer an additional moisturizer.

My skin type is dehydrated oily but it has been balanced but still oily recently. I find that this mask is highly highly moisturizing that I can even skip my forthcoming skincare steps and just finish my routine after using the mask! and even when I needed an extra moisturizer, I only need to apply one layer and my face will be moisturized and hydrated throughout the night. I think this mask will be able to replenish dry skin types too.

Sensitivity?

As a person with an acne prone skin, the mask fortunately did not break me out nor give me any tingling or irritation.

Other notable effects...

Since it is a super moisturizing mask, it leaves that obvious after sheetmask glow complexion, my skin is brightened too and becomes more elastic/bouncy. On my pimples, it look soothed after using the mask.

I can't say anything about 'improving wrinkles' since I do not have any heavy ones but I am sure my skin benefited from its anti-aging and antioxidant goodness.

There are things to watch out for this mask. Since it was highly moisturizing for me and leaves a sticky finish, it can be clogging especially if you have an easily clogged skin like mine.

Other than the above, there is nothing bad to say about this mask! I love it and definitely saving the remaining 3 masks for future use.

Will I Purchase?

Oh I definitely will! And I also would definitely recommend this amazing mask to others since it doesn't really have dangerous ingredients and it gives great effects.

Where to Buy?

It is listed that it is USD 15 for a box of 5 sheet masks at their official website www.krbeautylab.com
HERE this the direct product link. I think that the price is reasonable (around USD 3/one piece) since it is made with safe ingredients and recognized by awards.

For more information you can head over to Ilpumsong's website that is stated above.

Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack Strawberry Review | Cute on the outside but not on the inside

Sunday, February 26, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
Before I proceed with my review, I just want to state a disclaimer.
I won't be blogging as often now that I am back to school.
I might get on hiatus for a few months again until the semester break.
I wish everyone will have a great day everyday!
I will definitely miss blogging and don't worry, I will be back on track during the holidays
xxo


This cute item from Etude House was released in early 2016 if I remember correctly. Every time Etude House releases new products, I always feel that I needed to get my hands on them. The brand has a special place in my heart, it is the first brand that got me stuck into Kbeauty.

This sleeping mask comes in 3 flavors which are Green Tea, Black Tea and Strawberry. All of them sounds delicious right!


What It Is

The bubble tea sleeping pack makes skin moisturized and elastic during the night with its compound of black tea gel and moisture capsule bubbles.

How to Apply

1. Using the spatula, dispense gel and 1-2 bubbles onto the palm.
2. Gently rupture the bubbles with the spatula onto the palm and rub with the fingers to mix the bubbles and pack.
3. Evenly apply on skin in a massaging motion to promote absorption into skin.
4. Leave it on overnight, and then wash off with lukewarm water the next morning.
Tips! Use only gel depending on the condition of skin. For better moisturizing effect, mix the gel with 1-2 bubbles.



I luckily won myself the strawberry variant in a Instagram giveaway.


The main claims of the Strawberry are:

Moisturizing
Brightening
Clearing Skin
Skin Vitality
Elastic Skin

Ingredients


COSDNA

Ingredients to note:

Alcohol Denat - 5th in list if you have concerns

Sodium Hyaluronate - 7th on list. A sibling of Hyaluronic Acid which is for moisturizing.

Agar - to build its viscosity. I don't have a good feeling about this one for skincare. this substance is used as a thickener for foods which is why I am dubious to put it on my face.

There are about 4 colorants/pigments to make up the color which are HC Yellow No. 4, Red and Black Iron Oxide and Red 227. I don't like the idea of having synthetic colors on my acne prone skin.

There are only THREE main extracts which are from Strawberry, Cloudberry seed and Lemon. These three fruits contain Vitamin C which is effective for skin brightening.

Packaging


The jar is hard plastic and you twist the cap to open. It has a white lid inside to prevent spillage which is nice. Product is 100g/100ml.



There is a holder for the spatula on one side of the jar.

Consistency/Texture



The texture looks delicious like a strawberry smoothie ain't it?

Texture: Thick, gelly type, not runny, spreads easily.
Color: light pink
Scent: it definitely has a sweet light strawberry scent but artificial. At first I thought it smelt plastic-y. The smell doesn't linger after application.

Finish



First Demonstration

After massaging it on the skin, it leaves a bit of a sticky finish. The stickiness does't take long to dissipates and the final finish is matte. You can definitely layer an additional moisturizer if you'd like. Above demonstration is the texture for the plain gelly itself without the boba.



Second Demonstration

It is said that the moisture capsule bubbles or the boba contains more moisturizing ingredients but I find that it is just the same as the gelly.

The bobas are mostly sited at the bottom so you have to use the long spoon to take it out. Once you do, you crush them first before massaging it onto skin. THEY ARE HELLA SPLIPPERY to crush with the spoon so it is better to crush them with just your powerful hands. I notice that it is hard to crush them into very smaller pieces so I just massaged it onto my skin, it will melt and absorb into the skin anyway without leaving any residues.

My Thoughts

Straight forwardly saying, IT IS NOT MOISTURIZING AT ALL for me and IT BREAKS ME OUT. I suspect that the coloring ingredients made me to break out and also agar and probably also the lack of natural extracts, just my suspicion. There are only three fruit extracts and probably their vitamin C content are not enough to provide even a little bit of brightening because I do not notice any brightening as well.

About the Bobas

Clearing skin? Vitality? Elasticity? None at all! Despite that I only used it a few times because it broke me out, I do not think that it gave me the 'claimed' effects. I proceed to apply the product on my normal skin type body, which fortunately works fine and a little bit moisturizing but when I applied it on my feet which is like the driest part of my body, it didn't moisturize at all and I feel like I did not apply any moisturizer.

My Final Thoughts

Overall, it is a major lackluster product, it barely do anything to me. It smells plastic-y, contains artificial colorants, doesn't contain much great ingredients, not moisturizing enough and it breaks me out. It is just gimmicky in my opinion.

I prefer using products that contains ZERO colorants from now on because I feel like products that have them break me out.

I don't think I would want to recommend this product to others. You can't just ask people to use a product that contains colorants and a weird thickener, can't you?

I got the sleeping mask in a giveaway prize but here are a few sites where you can get them in case if you'd like to collect the cute milk tea like packaging, but of course if anything happens to your skin after using this product IT WON'T BE MY RESPONSIBILITY.

Elizavecca Milkypiggy Hell-Pore Clean Up Mask Review | Painful peel off mask ever? Fail!

Saturday, February 25, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
I think many or some of you have heard or seen this product before. It is a peel off mask that people claimed to be the most painful peel off mask that they've ever tried~
but that is not the case for me.
IT IS NOT PAINFUL AT ALL
I am a Superwoman


I've wanted to try this because of the ~craze~ and also I want to see if it will work on my clogged pores or not. I luckily managed to snatch this from Jolse for only USD 5, that time when they had a special sale. The original price at Jolse right now is USD 10.38.

I have been using this for a couple of times now so it is already appropriate for me to share my thoughts on this product.


What It Is

It contains 4% charcoal that can help to clean pores, remove impurities and
kin metabolites with strongly absorbed effect and leave shrink perfect clean skin,
Elizavecca hell-pore clean up mask contains licensed fermentation ingredients hat make the easy effective pore clean up product

Period of use after opening is 12 months


~ Alcohol is listed 3rd
 ~ Polyvinyl Alcohol is listed 4th
~ Charcoal powder is listed 5th. Good to detox and cleanse the skin from impurities.
~ There are about 11 of botanical extracts which is nice and they are listed in the middle


I love the art on the tube! it looks bright, lively and the blackheads (????) look cute too! They may be suffering from misfortunes but they are still cute.


Consistency/Texture


Texture: a bit thick and sticky, but not so sticky like honey. Should spread on face fast because it will set and started to dry fairly quickly. It spread easily

Scent: very strong alcohol smell. if you are sensitive to alcohol, you won't like this one. I think the smell can be stinging for sensitive people. The smell dissipates once it started to dry.

Color: there are black bits, some may think that it is grainy but it is NOT AT ALL. it lies flat. I have no idea what the bits are.

Time: it dries fully within ~15 minutes depending on the environment. It tightens the face while it dries but to me it doesn't feel so tightened that I suffocated. It is advised that if you have sensitive skin, you should only use it on the nose.


Make sure do not apply the mask on your eyebrows~ unless if you want to be browless.

Tip: do not apply it very thinly or else you will have a hard time peeling them off. Apply a bit thicker.

My Thoughts

The mask doesn't give me a 'one-time peel off' experience, some parts of the mask got cut off and I have to peel them pieces by pieces. It is okay since the pieces are big and not small ones which can be tiring.

It wasn't painful for me til an extend that I gritted my teeth. If I gritted my teeth or shed a tear then it is painful at the least. Maybe I have quite a strong skin tolerance so thats why the peel off experience wasn't painful at all.

After peel off, I always look whats on the mask, what did it grabbed and such....

Did it grab fine hairs? Nope...

What about pores' gunks/sebaceous filaments? Nope either....

Blackheads? I don't think it is strong for them

Clogged pores? Not effective for this either

THEN WHAT DID IT GRAB???? I don't find it extracting anything that is major. When I looked at the peeled mask, I couldn't spot anything that is disgusting like how most peel off masks always extract the nasty stuffs

I think it only grabs the intangible dead skin and impurities thats been lying on the face AND if you have an acne with a white head, the mask will suck out the white puss, which contributes to healing of the acne. It does leave scarring (what can you expect from an acne?) but it just helps to heal the acne faster. I think this is a good method to treat the pussy (I MEAN PUSS OK PUSS) acne without extracting them harshly or picking them.

After peel off and observing the layer, my face feels soft, clean and it doesn't dry out my face too much. I use this peel off mask at least once a week. The product doesn't break me out nor irritate my skin.

Will I Repurchase?

It doesn't really do anything big to me so NO. I wanted a clarifying peel off mask that is strong enough to extract the gunks in the pores, my blackheads and also clogged pores. This mask unfortunately did not do any of them. However I find that it would be a good non-harsh peel off mask if you don't have pore problems, just to exfoliate the dead skin and impurities.

Where to Purchase?

USD 10.38 + free shipping at Jolse (direct product page)

USD 7.52 + total weight shipping to country at StyleKorean* (direct product page)*

links marked with * are affiliate links

Product was bought with my own money.

Thank you for reading~ Will you be getting this peel off mask? What are your experiences with this product?

[Jolse] Wish Formula Special Kit Review by Finn W Part 3

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
For Part 1, you can read about it here: [Jolse] Wish Formula Special Kit Review by Finn W Part 1

***Products were sent by Jolse in exchange for my honest review. My thoughts and experiences are true and my review is unbiased.


In this post I am going to review Wish Formula I'm Pro Ampoule Pad C, it is a 'pad' for brightening, anti-oxidation and boost skin vitality.




Ingredients to highlight:

Ascorbic Acid - the strongest form of Vitamin C, is listed 2nd. You can expect some strong brightening and spot lightening effect due to its position and the ingredient itself. It can also revitalise skin.

There are a couple of plant extracts for antioxidant. 

Retinyl Palmitate - a form of Vitamin A, it can benefit the skin with its anti-aging.

Other anti-aging ingredient in it is Wine Extract.

Ferments - Mistletoe, Saccharomyces/Imperata Cylindrica Root, Soybean. They supply nutrients to skin.

Alcohol is listed 4th.


The product contains one pad that is saturated with orange/brown essence, which explains the orangey color of the pad. One side of the pad features a band to slip in your fingers to massage and tap in the essence.


The other side is where you pat or message in the essence to your face and neck.


My Thoughts

The essence is orange/brown in color, watery and smells like cappuccino/coffee to me, it didn't smell like oranges. The smell also lingered after application and while waiting for 20~30 minutes before proceeding to my next skincare step because it is sticky. If you don't like caffeine/coffee smell, you can pass on this one. Only after 20~30 minutes until the stickiness ended, I can layer my next moisturizer.

The pad immediately gives a brightening effect and glowing skin. My skin looked revitalized and awake.

I actually save the pad for a few times application because I want to see if it will help to reduce my acne scars but unfortunately it didn't. It is probably because regular use is needed and the Ascorbic Acid is listed 2nd in the ingredient. It is still high but my acne scars seem to lighten better and faster when the Ascorbic Acid is listed first in the ingredients list. I used the pad for a total of three times.

One time I used it during the day and I think it clogged my skin, since it leaves a sticky finish and my skin lies a bit on the oilier side during the day.

I also noticed that the pad did a good job in cleansing dirts on the face after washing because I noticed some dirts on the pad.

My Final Thoughts

Overall it is a good pad for immediate brightening, glowing, healthy and revitalized skin effect. I think the pad would be great for travels too. This pad might benefit for those who have Dull skin.

Will I Purchase?

I don't really like the coffee smell but I think it would be handy if I look like a zombie and want to turn that into human-looking me. I might purchase at some point.

Where to Buy?

USD 3.81/pc at Jolse (direct product page) + free shipping
USD 18.68/10pc at Jolse (direct product page) + free shipping

and continuation for Wish Formula samples review....

Wish Formula Fermented Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion (Oil-free Moisturizer for oily & sensitive skin)


White thick non-runny gallopy texture, has somekind of artificial smell, spreads easily and leaves skin moisturized and plump. The finish is a bit sticky and leaves a bit of greasy residue, it obviously doesn't feel 'oil-free' to me. I used this one time during the day and I still have oil production. Won't be getting the full size. I think it would suit dry skin better.

Thank you Jolse x Wish Formula!

Memebox X Jungsun I'm Meme Back To Basics Lipstick #01 Magenta Heels Review | FAIL

Sunday, February 19, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
This might be my last blog post before getting busy with school stuffs again.
School is starting in roughly 2 days *major sigh*


I got this lipstick as a gift. I never actually worn it outside because......IT IS BAD.

Only today I found out that this lipstick is from a collaboration line between Memebox and Junsgun, a Professional Korean model. I think this collaboration is not a new one and has been discontinued (I guess?) since the Jungsun x Memebox products are not available anymore on Memebox's website.

What It Is

Formulated with moisturizing oils, this pigmented lipstick glides on smooth and gives a lightweight matte finish without accentuating fine lines.

Price

RM89 (approx. USD 19) at Shoppr (direct product link)


The packaging has a matte feel, which adds to 'feeling and looking chic'. It has 'Back to Basics' and 'jungsun' printed on it.


#01 Magenta Heels


This is the part where it shows that it is bad....


The above swatch is obtained with just one swatch of this lipstick. If I swatch multiple times IT WILL GET CLUMPY.

It doesn't feel smooth, it feels chalky to me.

And when applied on the lips, it is dragging my lips a bit eventhough I applied lip moisturizer, totally not smooth at all.


Pigmentation is there and it doesn't bleed easily. Pigmentation shows better when applied from the tube straight to the lips.

The finish is matte just like it claims.

I don't know if you guess notice but the application on the inner part of my bottom lip is PATCHY and UNEVEN.


Can you see it now?? And oh my cute tooth gap peeking

It also gets dry overtime despite having a lip moisturizer on. It also produces clumps and accentuates on fine lines if you have dry lips.

My Final Thoughts

The lipstick quality is bad and not moisturizing at all considering that it says that it is 'formulated with moisturizing oils", I can't really find the ingredients list actually did not bother to do so.

Maybe because the fact that it is a matte lipstick that makes it not moisturizing? Well, I have tried a moisturizing matte lipstick by brand CP (short form). So yeah, this lipstick just has a bad formulation. Funny that it claims to moisturize the lips AND not accentuate the fine lines. False claims, people.

I wouldn't recommend this lipstick at all because it is drying, chalky, rough, clumpy, dragging and uh what else...it is too bad that the color is gorgeous. One and only thing I like about it is just THE COLOR. I even think of disposing this lipstick but the color makes me want to still keep it. Help me decide, guys!

I personally find the lipstick is quite expensive too (USD 19) for something that doesn't have a good quality. There are cheaper and better matte lipsticks out there, better check them out.

The End~ Thats all for my straightforward review about this lipstick ^^

[Jolse] Wish Formula Special Kit Review by Finn W Part 2

Saturday, February 18, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
I published part 1 of Wish Formula Special Kit Review before, you can read it below
[Jolse] Wish Formula Special Kit Review by Finn W Part 1

The testing continues~ this is the continuation of the Wish Formula samples that were sent by Jolse. I am also testing out the Wish Formula I'm Pro Ampoule Pad C at the moment so I will write a new blog post again for the review.

I am going to be straight forward about these samples starting from left to right. I do not have information on the full ingredients of these samples.



Wish Formula Fermented AC X Spot (Trouble & Spot clearing serum for dry skin)

It says that it is a serum but it actually has a cream texture. it has a light minty color with a mild minty smell, I like it. After massaging, it took awhile for the cream to be fully absorbed and it leaves a bit of a greasy finish (which is why it is targeted towards dry skin). The greasy residue is gone after ~10 mins and become fully absorbed. I used this at night so if you are oily, it is better to use this product at night. The next day the troubled spots above my eyebrow are calmed and reduced in size! and it DISAPPEARED too after frequent use! I love it, the effects are fast and effective even with only a few uses. I NEED THE FULL SIZE NOW.

Wish Formula Ceramide Lotion (Deep Moisturizing Effect for Dry & Sensitive Skin)

Has a white non-runny lotion texture, spreads easily and has a subtle bouquet scent to it. After massaging, it leaves my skin moisturized, hydrated, plump and brightened. This too I used at night since it is 'deep moisturizing'. Would be great for dry skin. I would love to get the full size of this too!

Wish Formula Hydra Base pH 5.5 Toner (pH balancing effect for all skin)

Description (taken from Jolse): Skin-like subacidic level Toner,
pH5.5 balances the skin conidtion and prevents bacteria infections

My Thoughts: Clear watery toner that has some kind of herbs scent to it, it is pleasant to me and I find this toner is just okay and cleanses dirt well. This too I'd love to try out the full size. The full size is available at Jolse for USD 21.23/105ml. Direct link to the product page is below.

Wish Formula Hydra Base pH 5.5 Toner (pH balancing effect for all skin)

Wish Formula Purifying Toner (Refresher for Oily skin)

I love this toner more since it is targeted for oily skin like me. It is a clear watery toner as well and has a fresh smell to it. I used it that day in my AM skincare routine and my face DID NOT GET OILY AT ALL during the day!!!!!! Yet without producing any oiliness, my face did not even feel dry. it is hard to believe but I swear it is real. Just like the AC X Spot, I NEED THE FULL SIZE OF THIS TONER NOW.

The full size is fortunately available at Jolse for USD21.23/105ml. Direct link to the product page is below.

Wish Formula Purifying Toner (Refresher for Oily skin)

Wish Formula Fermented Calming Serum (Soothing Serum for Sensitive Skin)

A thick clear serum that has some kind of an aloe smell to it. It absorbs fully into the skin after awhile. Soothing? Didn't feel like it. This didn't impress me so I won't get the full size.

Overall there are a total of 4 out of 5 samples that impressed me enough into needing the full size and all of the samples did not break me out at all. BONUS POINTS for Wish Formula!

Thank you Jolse x Wish Formula!

I am going to write a review on the Wish Formula I'm Pro Ampoule Pad C next so do stay tuned!

Freeman Mint & Lemon Clay Mask Review | by Finn W

Friday, February 17, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
I finally get to write a blog post. The internet was bad the past few days, the weather was pretty windy too.

I bought this Freeman Mint & Lemon Clay Mask at Watsons Miri last year. I cracked it open because I wanted to see if it will do any help to my pimples. It claims to control oil & breakouts, thats the reason why I bought it at the first place.

Spoiler alert: what does this even do?

This lemony cool clay mask delivers relief from inflammation caused by breakouts. Clays absorb oils to minimize shine and large pores. Mint and Lemon cool and refresh. Perfect for breakout prone and oily skin.

Directions: Apply mask to face and neck, avoiding contact with eyes. Let dry and rinse with warm water. Use two times a week or as often as needed.

Size: 6.0 oz

Ingredients

Key Ingredients:
Mint Extract
Lemon Extract

Does that scare you?

My Thoughts

This mask stings my eyes during the first application. Now that I have been using it frequently, it doesn't sting anymore. The Freeman Avocado & Oatmeal Clay mask always stings my eyes every time I use it (review here), I am glad that this one doesn't so I can comfortably continue using it.

I am just going to be straight forward about its effects.

Control breakouts? I don't really notice any difference. I am not sure if it does any soothing to my breakouts.

Yes to control oil but then I always use this at night and my skin is always less oily at night. I wonder if it will make any difference if I use it during the day.

Large pores did not disappear, sadly.

Skin feels refreshed? Perhaps, due to the mint.

Overall it is a meh product for me and I won't repurchase.
It may be cheap for only around RM19, but it is too bad that it doesn't even help with my smallest pimples. I am going to keep on using it (and apply to my back body too) until I empty it.

Thanks for reading~ Have you tried this product before? How was your experience with it?

🐼Tony Moly Panda's Dream Collection Pocket Lip Balm, Glossy Lip Crayon, White Hand Cream Review | cute panda makeup

Sunday, February 12, 2017

Annyeong, Everyone~
Feuhhh this review took me 2 days to prepare because I wasn't satisfied with the photos I took.
If you notice, I usually go with white background for my product photos.
but these products that I am going to review do not really stand out on white backgrounds.
So I tried using a dark background and the colour finally stood out~
so this is how photography works huh

FOR THE LOVE OF PANDAS, I present to you my review on the Tony Moly Panda's Dream Collection! I won these in Beautynetkorea's giveaway on IG last year. I feel lucky because these panda items are so freakin cute!!!!! I squealed as soon as I opened the package because of the cuteness. 



In the prize I received:

🐼 A sample of Tony Moly Panda's Dream White Hand Cream
🐼 Tony Moly Panda's Dream Pocket Lip Balm 3.8g
🐼 Tony Moly Panda's Dream Glossy Lip Crayons in #4 (Red Berry) and #5 True Red



I AM SO GOING TO GET THE FULL SIZE OF THIS. The hand cream has a light white cream texture and smells lightly of berries! It moisturizes well too. The panda holding the leaf is so cute. LOVE. I think you are going to hear the word CUTE alot in this blog post.



Cute pocket lip balm that is portable to bring everywhere~



I wished it came with a mirror inside but that is okay.

In the pan looks red and when I swatched it there is a bit of a light pink color to it but when applied to the lips it doesn't actually have a tint~

I use my fingers to dip in the balm. it is a bit of a hassle since I have to wipe/wash my finger after every time I dip it in, due to this, I won't purchase this lip balm~ I am more of a chapstick kind of girl. The texture is not really sticky and has a delicious strawberry candy smell~



It moisturizes the lips well and leaves a light glossy finish. My lips is normal, I don't know how it will perform on very dry lips.



I swear these lip crayons are CUTE to have around. Placing it in my vanity makes the area looks cuter and cheerful.

The lip crayon features cute panda bodies as a cap and it shuts the lippies tightly without being loose or anything. At the bottom is where you twist to extend the lip crayons. Overall it is practical.



The shade name and number is printed at the bottom.

04 is Red Berry

05 is True Red

Swatches



Above is indoor with flash.

Below is under natural sunlight.



04 Red Berry gradient & full lips



05 True Red gradient & full lips

Colors look different in photos due to flash. It is prettier in real life I SWEAR.

My Thoughts

Both shades are indeed glossy without being over the top. They glide smoothly and straight up pigmented without the need to swipe a few times. Since they have a glossy finish, I find them moisturizing, hydrating and not drying at all. They are easy to remove with a lip makeup remover too. The lip crayons are scentless.

The name of the shade 04 is red berry but shade 05 is the one that has a berry tone while shade 04 is just red. Nevertheless, both of them are pretty!

Overall no complaints except that my camera can't capture the prettiness of both shades. If you love glossy lipsticks, then you just have to get these. They are pigmented, moisturizing, smooth and CUTE. Other shades available in this line are shades of pink and orange, I would love to get all the shades! And if you do not like glossy finish, you can tone down the glossiness with a tissue~
