Kawaii Panda Box Reveal & Review July 2016

July 26, 2016 2 Comments

I can’t believe that this is already my 3rd Kawaii Panda Box and it is still the beauty box I look forward to the most. I love discovering new Korean skin care and beauty products and getting to try out new brands. I guess you could say I’m somewhat of a fangirl when it comes to KBeauty products.  Julys box has me just as excited as previous boxes.

One of the things I love about Korean beauty is that they make their products so much fun. I mean just look at this adorable cupcake lip balm. They have the formulas perfected when it comes to their skin care and beauty, that they can afford to make their packaging, fun and cute. This lip balm is the Dessert Time Lip Balm by Holika Holika in Peach. It has a lovely Peach scent and a light Peach colour too. It provides long-lasting moisture for your lips. (RRP approx £6.00/$8.00)

This Secret Key Rose Floral Softening Water is formulate with Damask Rose Flower Water that helps renew and soften rough and dry skin. It contains papaya and oil extracts that help moisturise the skin, along with 15 different plant origin extracts which also help to freshen and revitalise the skin.  You can apply a few drops of this to a cotton pad, or directly to your fingertip and then gently pat into skin. I used to use cotton pads to apply toner but I have recently switched to just using my fingertips as I find this gives a more effective application of the toner to my skin and I don’t waste any product either. (RRP Approx £7.60/$10.00)

I absolutely love the packaging on this Welcos Merit Killing Me Zombie BB Cream SPF 50+/PA+++; it’s just so darn cute! This BB cream gives UV ray protection, is whitening and anti-wrinkle. It contains Hyaluronic Acid to keep the skin moisturised. It gives quite high coverage too and blends well into the skin to give long-lasting, moisturising coverage throughout the day. It has an amazing smell too. It is also suitable for sensitive skin. There is no Mineral Oil, Talc or Benzophenone in this BB Cream either. (RRP aprox £7.73/$10.15)

I have a few Mizon products and I really like them so I was thrilled to see this Water Volume Aqua Gel Cream in this months box. This cream has a gel texture and hydrates and calms the skin without causing any irritation. It’s suitable for all skin types but especially oily and acne prone skin as it’s not a heavy cream. It contains witch hazel which tightens the pores and helps to control excess oil. It also contains licorice, collagen and watermelon to provide brightening, firming and astringent  qualities. This light weight cream absorbs easily into the skin, leaving no greasy film/residue behind, just soft, hydrated skin. It also smells really good too.(RRP £7.62/$10.00)

This Missha The Style Eyeliner Pencil (Brown) is a really lovely soft eyeliner. It applies easily and can be blended out to give a smokey eye if desired. It’s hypoallergenic so is suitable for sensitive eyes. I always seem to get a lot of black eyeliner in my beauty boxes, so it was really great to get a brown one, which I actually only have maybe 2 of in my make up collection. (RRP approx £4.57/$6.00)

Overall Thoughts

Yet again it’s another fabulous box from Kawaii Panda Box. A good selection of skin care and make up products and I will definitely be using everything. I’m excited to add the Secret Key Rose Floral Softening Water into my skin care routine; it smells so lovely. I’m also really impressed by the coverage of the BB Cream and again, it smell amazing. I honestly cannot fault this box at all for the products that it curates each month. This will always be a definite keeper for me. Each month it never fails to delight me with its wonderful contents. This is such an excellent box for someone who is curious about Korean beauty products or who is just starting out. It can be overwhelming knowing what to try but this box will give you a great start and will provide you with a selection of 5 make up and skin care products. You are never tied down to a subscription as you just pay for this box monthly through their website, so you can pick and choose if you want to order each month, or every other month etc. It really is fantastic!

Where Can I Buy It?

  • Finally got round to trying these @cosrx pimple patches. ⠀ ⠀ I don't get too many spots, maybe the odd hormonal one every now and then. However, I do have some whiteheads that are under the skin - you can't see them till you pull the skin tighter but I know they are there as I can feel them under the skin.⠀ ⠀ I had tried several times to extract them but I didn't want to damage my skin and they were proving very stubborn.⠀ ⠀ So, I used a sterilised needle, to pierce a small hole in them, making sure to go just deep enough to hit the whitehead. ⠀ ⠀ Whacked on one of these pimple patches & voila! Over the next 24-48hrs they pulled out all the contents and the whiteheads were gone. ⠀ ⠀ It's much less trauma to the skin to use these patches rather than squeezing and picking and running the risk of scarring or PIH.⠀ ⠀ If you've not tried these, then I really recommend giving them a try. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. ⠀ ⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #abcommunity #kbeauty #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #abblogger #kskincare #abskincare #asianskincare #kbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #skincarejunkie #koreancosmetics #skincareproducts #skincarecommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #thatsdarling #cosrx #petitejoys #theeverygirl #nothingisordinary #pimplepatches #화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⠀

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarebloggers #goodmolecules #beautylish ⠀ #skincarejunkies #skincareblogger #budgetbeauty #budget skincare #affordableskincare #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight⠀#skincareobsessed ⠀ #skincareaddict #glowyskin #clearskin #dryskin #discoverunder20k #howyouglow #skincarelover #iloveskincare #365inskincare #palmbffs #facialserum #facialoil
  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
