Since I’m a Silver member at Memebox, I couldn’t resist the coupons they were sending me. They sent me one for 15% off my entire order so I knew I had to buy what I’ve been eyeing for weeks!
Leave it to Etude House for always having the cutest packaging. How adorable is this sleeping pack? It’s a mini bubble tea! As a bubble tea addict, I knew I had to buy this just for the packaging! I bought mine from Pretty & Cute for about $13.
I’ve tried multiple sleeping packs, but this is my first one from Etude House. Their bubble tea line comes in three different “flavors”: green tea, strawberry tea, and black tea. Each “flavor” is geared towards a different skin issue. I’ve attached Etude House’s explanation of how to use and what each different flavor is for.
My first thought was that it smelled overly artificial sweet. I think it can be nauseating at times so this is definitely not the product for a sensitive user. While the packaging is cute, it can be a bother that the bubbles are all the way at the bottom. It’s just a messy situation using the spatula to try to scoop the bubbles up. I only use the bubbles when my skin is a bit drier than usual.
Overall, I thought this product was disappointing. Yes, it’s cute. But is it highly moisturizing? No, I don’t think it’s anything special. In fact, I find it tacky/sticky on my skin. And the smell disgusts me. It hasn’t broken me out though. Squishing the bubbles are an unnecessary step in my opinion. I don’t notice the bubbles adding any extra moisture and it can be difficult to squish. I do notice it stings my skin at time when I’m drier than usual. I would not repurchase this and am not interested in trying out the other kinds. I’ll use this up and that will be the end of trying out these bubble tea sleeping packs.
- Cute packaging
- Strong fragrance
- Stings skin
- Nothing special about this product
I made my first Memebox purchase this year! They were having a New Years sale which is the perfect excuse to stock up some new goodies I’ve been eyeing.
Peel off makeup is one of the latest trends in Korea. I’m a bit late on the game. It first started off with the famous peel-off lip tints and then moved on into the brows. I found the concept interesting because I didn’t want to deal with doing my brows on a daily basis. Etude House’s Tint My Brows Gel is sold for $10 on Memebox.
….I use them! I got a free $5 coupon from purchasing a bunch of kpop cds from YesAsia. Coupons are always a good excuse to buy more stuff, right? The coupon was expiring this month, so I had to use it quickly. YesStyle impressed me with their shipping-this was sent to me within a week after ordering. Very very impressed.
I’m always on the lookout for new brow products. Even though I’m satisfied with my routine, I am always willing to experiment. I am so glad to have the opportunity to test out Pony Effect’s Sharping Brow Definer in Deep Brown. I picked this up for $13 from Memebox.
I’ve known about YesStyle for years since it is known for being the sister-site to YesAsia. I never expressed an interest in ordering from them though until recently. I spent a bunch of money on kpop albums on YesAsia, so I was given some coupons for YesStyle. And I figured it would be a good time to use it.
Yes, this is getting repetitive. It seems like every week I post about Memebox, right? This is my last haul from 2016 that I’ve been meaning to post. It was basically a huge lippie haul. Memebox had several holiday sales each day and I was eyeing the lippie one.
After finishing my Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream, I have been testing out this new one, the Etude House’s Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream. I’m a huge fan of Etude House’s cute and girly packaging. I’ve only tried their makeup so this is my first time trying a skincare product from them. I got this on sale from Memebox. I believe I only paid $11 for it when it’s normally $15.
The Moistfull Collagen line is geared towards plumping up your skin with anti-aging properties. This eye cream is advertised as plumping thin/saggy skin under the eyes to smooth any fine lines and wrinkles while providing moisture!
My first impression of this eye cream formula was whoa! This is thick! The container was packed to the rim of a thick light orange cream. I love how it’s completely full with product-I hate opening a container to find it’s only half full. It takes some effort to take some cream from the container. I can tell this is going to last me a long time because a little goes a long way.
This eye cream would be great for sensitive users. I detect no fragrance and it doesn’t sting like other eye creams.
As for how it works, it keeps my skin well-moisturized. I see no dry patches under my eyes when I apply makeup. I don’t have any fine lines or wrinkles so I can’t vouch for that aspect of the product.
I am quite pleased with this product. I don’t know if I ‘ll continue to purchase this because I want to try out new products. I do recommend this for those who have sensitive skin and want to take care of the sensitive skin under the eyes!
- Good value
- No scent-great for sensitive users
- May be difficult to find
Ulta has blessed me with 20% off coupons, including prestige brands! This is a rare coupon and I had to take advantage of it. They were actually quite generous this year and sent me like four 20% off coupons through snail mail and email.
