For those that are new to my blog, the Kawaii Panda Box is a monthly Kbeauty box that is curated by www.kawaiipanda.co.uk. It’s not a subscription service, so you do have to remember to go and order the box before the end of every month, to make sure you receive the following months box. The December Kawaii Panda Box arrived a few days ago, so let’s take a look at what it contained this month, shall we.
The box, as always is a very simple, no fuss white cardboard box, with a Kawaii Panda logo stick on it. It’s inside where it counts and there are always at least 5 full-sized items included. You never get samples, trial or travel sizes, EVER.
A’Pieu Cushion Tok Tint – A rather gorgeous cushion lip tint by A’pieu. It comes in several different shades. This shade is CR01. It feels quite strange applying it because it’s not like a lip gloss, or lipstick. It really is a like applying a cushion powder almost. It’s pretty unforgiving to dry lips too. Once you’ve applied it, it feels like you have nothing on your lips at all. It was also quite difficult to get a clean edge but then I think this is designed to create a gradient lip. Not sure the colour is really me, as it’s quite a bright coral colour. It’s one of those colours that is also not very flattering to the teeth because it makes them look more yellow than white. I’d like to try another colour in it though, as I do like how it feels when on.
Secret key Snail Repairing Foam Cleanser – This foam cleanser helps with regeneration of damaged skin. It has snail filtered extract and EGF which regenerate the skin, keeping it smooth and healthy. It lathers up into a soft, creamy foam, which you massage on your face. Cleansing sebum, dirt and dead skin away without irritating the skin. It’s suitable for most skin types.
A’Pieu Gruyère Cheese Cream– Gruyère Cheese? Yes, my thoughts exactly but hey we put snail mucin on our faces, so what’s a little cheese! Gruyère cheese is made from the aged milk of healthy cows in the Alps and is considered the best cheese in the world. It’s full of protein, vitamins to make your skin smooth and moisturised. The main ingredients of this are
- Gruyère cheese extract – Delivers beneficial nutrients to damaged skin
- Cacao seed butter – forms a moisturising barrier to protect dry skin
- Milk protein extract – prevents dryness & moisturises skin
- Avocado oil – helps to smooth and firm skin
- Sweet almond oil – gives bright complexion & helps to smooth skin
The texture even looks like some kind of thick, cream cheese. It doesn’t really have any discernible smell either. You use this as the last step in your skin care at night.
The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Mini Pet Perfume Hand Cream in 04 Fruity Floral – This is perfumed hand cream. It does have quite a strong floral scent, with a tiny underlying fruit scent too. It’s definitely moisturising, non sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin. Let’s be honest, the best thing though is the cute packaging! I mean, it’s really adorable.
Miin Whitening Essence Natural Cotton Mask Pack – This is a mask I’ve never tried before and I am loving the beautiful artwork on the packaging. So pretty! It was great to see this included in the December Kawaii Panda Box.
Apparently ‘Miin’ means beautiful woman, and the mask is beautiful too as is has no chemical preservatives. It contains organic ingredients; naturally derived plant ingredients. This is a whitening essence mask but it is also available in Anti-Wrinkle and Moisture Soothing too. I’m looking forward to trying this mask.
Overall Thoughts About The December Kawaii Panda Box
Once again Kawaii Panda through their box I have discovered products that I have never tried before and didn’t even know existed.
The December Kawaii Panda Box contained 5 full-sized products which were mostly skin care, which I love, and just one make-up item.
I always prefer it when the items I receive in boxes are more skin care orientated than make-up. Not that I mind getting Kbeauty cosmetic products because they are usually of a very high quality. I just tend to focus more on skin care these days, than I do on make-up.
