Kawaii Box March / April 2015 – Cute Subscription Box

Published April 18, 2015 by purabeautyblogger

I have only just discovered this subscription box.

Kawaii means cute, and they really do hit the nail on the head with these super cute boxes.

The Kawaii box contains between 10-12 handpicked unique Japanese and Korean Kawaii items.

You can subscribe for 1,3,6 or 12 months.

This is the second of a 3 month subscription I bought for my teenage girls.

They absolutely love Kawaii and always try to raid my own subscription boxes. This is the perfect compromise, they can have their own subscription box.

It is shipped using Singapore post and the box came about 2 weeks after posting

Even the outer packaging is cute

Am sure they will come in useful later

The box cost $18.90 a month which includes shipping. This becomes cheaper, the more months you subscribe for.

I chose the 3 month option as i thought it would give a good indication of the quality of these boxes

Even after the first box, i was hooked.

It is full of super cute items that will all be used. I think it is a nice selection, with something for everyone and am glad I subscribed to this box.

I can not wait for next months box

I love the little notes you get with the box. Always bring a smile to my face

Kitkat – Green Tea (I think)

2015-03-11 15.10.53

I read in a magazine that there are over 200 flavours of Kitkat. Japan is on my to do list for the food alone. This is really different. Not too sweet but absolutely delicious. If I find it in any London shops I will be buying a few.

Kracie

2015-03-11 15.18.12  2015-03-11 16.17.13

I have come across Kracie before and have bought a few of the kits of Ebay for my daughters, so when they saw this in the box, they squealed with delight.

It is very easy to make, with instructions on the back of the packet.

20150311_161506

It really smells of grape and was gone in a couple of minutes of making it. As you can see, they loved it.

Sweet keychain

2015-03-11 15.14.31

Am not too sure what to say about this at the moment. It is cute but it is hanging on the washing line at the moment to air. Am tying to get rid of the strong plastic smell

Hello Kitty Rubber

2015-03-11 15.14.01

I have seen some other designs in other unboxings.  Cupcakes and such. Although my daughter is quite happy with this one.

Will always come in useful at home and at school

Present and Bow Stickers

2015-03-11 15.10.11

These are very sparkly and cute. I am sure I will find them stuck on lots of things around the house in the coming weeks.

Pencil Case

20150311_150219

Pencil cases are always useful. Although this is a very standard case. Nothing special

Luggage Tag

2015-03-11 15.18.48

This looks a very classy luggage tag and the colour will go with any of my suitcases. Am quite pleased with this.

Tony Moly Cute Petite Bunny Lip Gloss Bar – Cherry

Published February 9, 2015 by purabeautyblogger

2015-02-09 19.52.03

 

The first word that springs to mind is Cute. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. Just look at that super cute packaging.

It is made by Tony Moly which is a Korean brand that makes beauty products with super cute packaging. (see my review on their hand creams)

It is available in a variety of shades, but I choose the cherry one. Each colour has a different expression on the bunnies face.

When you open it up, it smells like cherry sweets.

These are more tints than full on colour.

20150209_201150

The ones thing that surprised me, was how moisturising they were. They leave a lovely glossy sheen with just a hint of colour. Perfect for a day time look

 

If you are looking for a new full on lip gloss, this is not for you but if you just want a very relaxed no makeup look then these fit the bill. The cute bunny packaging always put a smile on my face whenever I use it.

Tony Moly Hand Cream – Apple, Peach, Tangerine, Banana

Published February 5, 2015 by purabeautyblogger

If you want a way to entice you to use your hand cream more often, these hand creams are the answer.

2015-02-05 10.27.58

They are made by a Korean brand called Tony Moly and come in super cute packaging.

They great thing about these, is that you do not forgo quality for cuteness.

They are lovely and rich and smell amazing.

Everyone who has seen them loved them and asked where they were from.

I bought these from

http://roseroseshop.com

(Fast delivery and great prices)

The prices are very reasonable and make great quirky presents, that the recipient’s will actually use.

I will start with my personal favourite.

Peach anti aging hand cream 30g $3.30

2015-02-05 10.31.21

Peach and apricot extracts, full of lycopene, replenish the skin so that the skin stays soft and moisturised. A wrinkle improving element, Adenosine, is included in the product to boost the suppleness.

Review – It has the most wonderful smell and reminds me of peach melba dessert. The cream itself is very rich, but absorbs into the skin quickly leaving your hands delicately fragrances with a real peach smell.

I have already bought a other one of these for my stash.

Magic food banana hand milk 45ml $3.97

2015-02-05 10.32.18

Banana hand milk that focuses on rich moisturisation and nutrition.

Review – The banana hand cream comes in a cute banana shaped tube. I do not feel it is as rich as the other Tony Moly Hand creams. More of a lotion, than a cream.

It smells of banana milkshake and the banana foam sweets I had as a child.so an artificial banana smell rather than a fresh natural smell of the other creams. People’s reactions to the smell are they either love it or hate it.

I think I am the only person who does not really like this scent. I like real bananas,  but can not stand banana flavoured food. And yet this is the most popular hand cream out of all of them. I have had to order this for friends and family.

Red apple hand cream 30g $3.70

2015-02-05 10.30.55

Moisturising touch full of honey and butter. Creates smooth and gorgeous hands after taking care of dead skin cells, cuticles and rough nails.

Review – The Apple hand cream has already disappeared.My daughter loved it so much, it is in her room.

The texture is lovely and rich. I can see why it is the one they recommend for dry skin. Even through it is really rich, it still sinks in quite quickly and you are not left with greasy hands.

It smells like sharp apples. the smell actually makes you salivate it is so yummy.

Tangerine whitening hand cream 30g $3.30

2015-02-05 10.31.53

This vitamin c abundant hand cream contains the extracts of tangerine, lemon and citron, and makes your hands moist and soft. It also contains an effective skin whitening ingredient – arbutin – which will brighten your hands by inhibiting the formation of melanin and dark spots.

Review – This has a very soft scent, that disappears quite quickly. It is still a rich cream that does deliver a lot of moisture to the hands, but as the scent is so slight, I feel I could be using any hand cream. The packaging is cute, but this is my least favourite out of all the hand creams.

These are great for everyday use. Good value for money and very moisturising with no greasiness. You can pick up paper straight away and not leave a trail of grease in your wake.

This is the only one that I have not repurchased. There is nothing wrong with it, just prefer the other fruit

I will be definitely be buying more of these. They will make great presents as well. something a little bit different.

Update: I have bought quite a few of these hand creams now and everyone who I have gifted them to, has loved them. I think I need to stock up

What do you think of these hand creams?

Which one is your favourite?
