Asiana Beauty Box

A box full of makeup and skincare products.DSC_3961.JPG

Sounds good? And not just any brands, there’s Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Estée Lauder, Mac, Origins and Smashbox. Even better right? It got me excited! The Asianabox includes all of this for only £25. YES, ONLY £25! I was scrolling on Facebook and saw the ad. I looked at the comments and people were giving good reviews for it, so obviously I had to buy it. Delivery was quick. I got an email saying that it would take 10 days but it actually took 3!

I opened my parcel to see a box (a nice looking box). I took the lid off and there were cards, one thank you note, some showing each product and the other giving advice on how to use each product. I opened the tissue paper and there appeared the products. Ok so I’m not going to lie, some of the products were a bit smaller than I expected. A few of them were sample sizes, but I read online that people got original sizes.. but people meant that the products were miniature versions, not sample sizes. I mean for £25 I shouldn’t have expected the full sized products..

So inside the box:the products.JPG

  • Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean Triple Action Cleanser
  • Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser
  • Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Black Ink
  • Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge Lips & Cheek Powder Pink
  • Mac False Lashes Mascara Extreme Black
  • Clinique All About Shadow Duos Night Cap

Although I was surprised about the sizes of some products, I’m still happy with the box. Hey I got all this for £25, of course I’m happy! It’s good that they are small sizes, so I can test them out, see if it’s worth buying the full sizes. I looove the makeup products, especially because they are high end products. I got a Bobbi Brown eyeliner for my eyeliner collection and a lip/cheek duo! I definitely do recommend it to everyone. You do get some full sized products, so why not!

Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Mask

Bubbles? YES BUBBLES!

I have been wanting the clay mask for such a long time and finally bought it last month. I love face masks and all things skin care, especially Korean products, so I had to buy it (you can find it on eBay).

It took about a month to come because it was from South Korea, but I’m used to waiting for things from eBay.. yes I buy a lot from eBay.. mostly skincare products.

It has a little piggy on it!

The parcel finally came and obviously before using it, I had to take pictures of it. Then eventually I opened it. The mask itself is grey because of the clay and it was kind of gooey. Some of the ingredients include green tea (my favourite!), pomegranate, charcoal (of course), aloe vera etc. The mask comes with a mini spatula to make it easier to apply, although I just used my fingers. Of course with a face mask you put it all over your face, which is what I did, then waited for it to work its magic.

Grey and gooey.

When I saw the mask, I thought about if it would actually bubble up on the face, just because it was gooey looking. BUT it did bubble up! After a few minutes of putting it on, I heard the bubbles fizz up and saw a few appear on my face. Then after about 10 minutes, more came. Not just a few more, but my face looked like it puffed up with bubbles. It was an interesting look! So more and more bubbles came, my face still looked puffy, like a grey marshmallow if I say so myself. The mask is supposed to harden and exfoliate your face. Not only does it cleanse and exfoliate, but it unclogs pores too! I let it harden a bit then decided it was time to take it off. By the way, that wasn’t the easiest thing to do. The mask refused to come off.. but after scrubbing my face loads, it eventually did come off. Because it was so hard to take off, my face was red and it was stinging slightly, but not to worry, it went down after a while. I closely looked in the mirror and can say YES it did cleanse my face and le pores were no more! The product does what it tells you, which is a relief!

What did I think overall? I do like it, because it’s something that you wouldn’t usually see and my face looks nice and clear, oh and really smooth. The downside for me is taking it off. Maybe I left it on for too long, but without a cloth or something, it won’t come off. But.. that’s only a small thing. So I recommend it if you love face masks. It’s something to add maybe once a week to your skincare routine!
