How to fail at being a panda

Tony Moly Panda's Dream Eye Patch Review

Hi hi cuties! Do you remember when I blogged about Tony Moly's new Panda's Dream release earlier this year? I tried the whitening cream but didn't like it much >.< But Beautynetkorea recently sent me a whole bunch of the eye patches, so let's see how these faired...

First off, the packaging is a highlight, as is most of the Panda's Dream range, but hello, when it comes to pandas, you can't go wrong with a fat round panda on the packaging :P

I guess we are familiar with eye patches being curved in shape to fit under the eye area where puffy bags and dark circles are, but these eye patches go one step further! 

Continuing with the panda theme, these patches come in quite large rounded shapes mimicking those adorable black patches surrounding panda eyes. Haha, they look like moist pieces of dried seaweed! You may get a shock when you open the packet - the colour and shape is quite unexpected.

If you want to look like a sleeping panda you apply the whole patch evenly over your eye area - you'll need to keep your eyes closed for 10-20 minutes to allow the essence to work its magic.

However if you want to look like a masked bandit, then apply the patches with the eye opening peeled down so you can continue to see or carry on with essential tasks. The eye opening is quite generous while still being able to be manipulated to cover much of the under eye area. 

It will feel very cooling, more so if you pop these in the fridge beforehand. The patches are generously soaked in essence, with enough to pat onto other areas if you wish. It doesn't sting, irritate, or pull my skin. 

After removal, pat the remaining essence into the skin. It may be a bit sticky for a few moments, but skin looks brighter, fresher, and dewier. I did note some brightening to my dark under eye circles, but not a miraculous amount. 

Overall these patches, while quite silly and gimmicky, actually does provide some short term skin brightening, and are relaxing to use. They won't miraculously eliminate dark circles, however I quite like these for when I want some quick pampering! 

Get them from Beautynetkorea here, if you like the look of these~!

Hope you all had a fab Christmas/Holiday - not too long now til we ring in the new year >.<

Banila Co Clean It Zero Review

Hey lovelies, today I'm going to review the Number 1 rated Cleansing Balm, judged by the popular Korean show, Get it Beauty. Described as a whole new concept of oil cleanser, the Banila Co Clean It Zero stands out from other cleansing oils due to it's solid, moist sherbet-like texture, instead of the traditional runny oil. 

Beautynetkorea kindly sent me this to review for you, so let's jump right into the review ^^

Etude House Pearl Aura Review: Brightening Essence & Brightening Essence Lotion

Etude House Pearl Aura Brightening Essence, Brightening Essence Lotion

Heya cuties, I'm back with some new Etude House skincare reviews! 

A few months back I blogged about Etude's new Pearl Aura skin brightening products (a brightening essence and a brightening lotion), and Beautynetkorea were kind enough to send me the products to trial! 

I have a bit of an obsession with brightening skincare, as I love the look of healthy glowing skin (as do many of you), and that coupled with Etude's irresistably girlish and pretty packaging made me lem after the range quite hard *_*

Tony Moly BCDATION Review (BB, CC Cream & Foundation in one)

Over the last year we've seen some innovative and exciting trends come about in base makeup - after the huge popularity of bb creams along came cc creams, and then cushion makeup, which sent the Asian beauty blogging community into a tizzy. 

And amongst that excitement Tony Moly released their own unique product - the BCdation. 

It's exactly as it sounds - the BCdation claims to be the new replacement for bb cream, cc cream, and foundation, as it combines all the best qualities of the 3 items into one single formula. 

Sounds kind of crazy, huh? 


I was excited to receive a mini sized sample during a shopping haul on Beautynetkorea, because I had been eyeing it since its release. The full sized product comes in a rounded cylinder packaging, whereas the mini sample came in a squeeze tube, so I won't say much about the packaging.

Today's little beauty haul, and the newest fragrance to my collection - Marc Jacobs' Honey. 

Priceline had a two day sale on all their fragrances (30-70% off), and I just couldn't resist popping in after work today. 

I've had Honey on my wishlist since last Christmas, so when I found it reduced from $119 to $71, I was super excited! 

I like sweet floral scents, so Honey is just about right up my alley. 

Honey is made up of,

Top notes: pear, mandarin orange and punch
Middle notes: honeysuckle, orange blossom and peach
Base notes: honey, vanilla and woodsy notes

It's sweet but not too sweet, and quite fresh, so I'm looking forward to wearing it ^.^

And isn't the yellow bumble bee design just super cute? So bright and cheerful <3

I ended up testing other fragrances while I was in store, which was probably not a great idea because now I have more fragrances to add to my wishlist! Out of curiosity I decided to test Marc Jacobs Oh Lola, and it also smells so good (not as good as Honey), but still nice enough that I might pick it up next time it's on sale. 

I also thought Vera Wang's Lovestruck was nice too >.<

But anyway, this is just a small update today. Hopefully I can get a review up for you tomorrow evening!

What sort of perfumes do you like?
