Graveyard: March and April empties 2015

19. May 2015

Here are my product empties for March and April and a quick impression on each product. I’m a bit late for the post, but hopefully you like it anyways :) As usual, I didn’t include any sample sachets or sheet masks masks, because it is too messy to keep these.

Graveyard: March and April empties 2015

1. Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser. Repurchase? Maybe someday. I have to many cleansers right now.

You can read my review on this foaming cleanser >>here<<. I love the packaging and it had a nice scent. The foam was thick and soft and the cleanser contained rose petals.

2. Happy Bath Rose Essence. Repurchase? I would love to!

This bath and shower cream had the most lingering and nicest rose scent! If you are a lover you will love this…but I remember it was marked quite expensive, sadly.

3. Shib Jang Ceng Chun Ji Heang Hand Cream. Repurchase? Yes, please.

This moisturizing and nourishing hand cream has a long name, but nevertheless it does a great job as hand cream. It contains ginseng extracts, shea butter and olive oil and was not sticky, not greasy and I loved using it!

4. Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly. Repurchase? No.

I like the idea of shower jelly and it was quite fun. Nevertheless, this specific product scent was nbot my favourite, but I could imagine getting other versions of it.

5. Kerastase Elixir Ultime. Repurchase? Maybe.

I received this hair oil trial the last time I was giving my hair a cut. It is a nice and lightweight oil and I could imagine to try it again. Unfortunately, Kerastase products are quite expansive.

6. Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Concentrate Protein. Repurchse? Maybe.

You can read my review >>here<<. I enjoyed using these two hair treatments and I can imagine that I would repurchase them again from time to time.

7. Mise en scène Perfect Repair Treatment Pack. Repurchase? Yes!

This treatment was georgeous. It made the hair super soft and easy to comb after an instant. Although labelled for twice a week use I was using it almost every second day because I loved the effect. I would like to repurchase this again. Although I read in some that they think the scent is old-women scent, but I got used to it and even liked it after all. I still have the Mise en scène Perfect Serum and I’m planning to write a comparative post between a couple of hair oils.

8.Dewytree Real Collagen nutrition serum. Repurchase? Maybe.

There is still an upcoming review for this :D I enjoyed this serum and I love the pump bottle it has and the subtle rose/flower scent.

9. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream. Repurchase? Maybe.

a hydrating cream which contains hyaluronic acid and is very nice on the skin. You can read my review >>here<<.

10. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum. Repurchase? Maybe.

Another hydrating product from the Klairs Rich Moist soothing line. I was enjoying all the products, especially in winter. Read my review >>here<<.

11. Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. Repurchase? Yes! As soon as I’ve finished my other cleansers.

This is the best cleansing oil I have tried so far and I can recommend you to try it! Read my review >>here<<. I love the scent, I love how it cleanses. A great product!

12. Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. Repurchase? Yes!

Suprisingly, I fell in love with that toner, although I thought it will be my least favourite of the Klairs products. It has a nice pH of 5 and is really a good preparation facial toner. Read my review >>here<<.

13. Hanskin Bio Origin BB creams. Repruchase? Maybe the ampoule BB.

I wrote a comparison review on these two BB creams >>here<<. I liked the ampoule BB better than the other one, but both are descent products.

14. COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol. Repurchase? A good product to have in case of emergency!

I received this selfmade trial version of COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol in a giveaway by Sam Murakami from ColorCrush (check out her blog/videos). Thanks again for the lovely giveaway, dear ♥ I must say I had a positive impression on this product and I would love to try it for a longer time, if I have some more skin troubles (hopefully not). This treatment contains propolis, AHA/BHA and works great on troubled skin. It has an acid pH of 4 and should be used after a pH lowering toner and before your other moisturizing steps (including moisturizing toner/essences/serums/creams/ampoules etc). It is on sale at Wishtrend atm!

15. Yadah Vita-Whitening Aqua Gel and Puregreen Moisturizing Cream. Repurchase?No.

These two sample sized creams were a dissapointment. First: the lids were not closing properly, so I assume that some of the product either leaked out or evaporated/dried up after a while, although I didn’t open it before. Due to this my skin didn’t like the creams. One was to heavy balmtype and the other didn’t absorb either.

16. Tonymoly Eggpore Nose Pack Package. Repurchase? These, or other nosepacks.

I like to use nosepacks occasionally, although they say they are not good. But I love the feeling of seeing some dead skincells and dirt and babyhair pulled of by these kind of patches, although it is quite gross, especially when my bf does use these :D

Do you know any of these and did you try them yourself? What is your opinion on these products I showed above? I’d be happy about your comments ♥

Review: Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

3. March 2015

I reviewed the Rosemine Plumpy Tint a while ago and here is my review for the Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser, which was part of the MeMeBox Rose Scentbox, too. This is one of my favourite foam cleansers so far and I’ve almost used it up.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

The brand Rosemine is made by the Korean cosmetic manufacturing company called “EVAS”. The name is not chosen randomly, I think, because they stress the point, that their brand is wants to “give people clean & safe lifestyle (by Christian principle)”. I’m feeling a bit discomfortable if a cosmetic brand or company also makes religious remarks, since skincare and cosmetics should be reaching beyond religious aspects…Apart from my critisism towards the brand’s philosophy I want to point out that I really do like this cleanser. Ilove the floral packaging design, and also the Rosemine Plumpy Tint did convince me design-wise. The cardboard box the foam cleanser comes in is printed with a floral pattern and looks very pretty.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

Unfortunately, the cardboard box only contains Korean description, but from the images of the products webpage I could conclude that this cleanser contains a bunch of different flower extracts, especially rose extracts. It also smells of roses, which is really nice if you love rose scented products. Moreover, you’ll find rose petals within the foam, which reminded me of the Sum37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick (I still am planning to do a review for it…>_<). The cleanser also contains coconut, which is a beneficial ingredient aswell. The foaming cleanser comes in a tube which has a matching design to the cardboard box. It looks really girlish with the flowers and the pink and white stripes and the baby blue cap.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

The backside of the tube has some short Korean description printed on, too.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

How does the Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser perform? First of all, the product comes out as a beige, shiny and yet creamy product. It contains rose petals (unfortunately, in my shot there is none XD), and creates a dense and full foam. If you love foam cleansers you will like the foaming ability of this cleanser. You only need a small amount to create enough foam for the whole face, especially when using a facial brush/electric facial brush or a foaming net, like I do use in the picture below. I use a chickpea sized amount of the product usually. The cleanser has a pH of 7, which might be not acid enough for some people.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

I usually use this cleanser as a second step after I use the Klairs Cleansing Oil, but even on its own this cleanser performs great and removes almost all makeup products. In my test below you can see that it cleansed away everything and just some very light stains from the lip products remained.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

I have mostly dry skin and some foaming cleansers might additionally feel drying on my skin, but I didn’t have the feeling here. The skin doesn’t feel squeeky, but simply clean and refreshed afterwards. I would even call this an alternative for the Sum37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick, if you love it because of the rose ingredient. It retails for 18900 Won (~19 US$) on the product site. If you would like to try it I would recommend you to ask at testerkorea at their “want” section.

Review: Rosemine Plumpy Tint Roseberry

19. November 2014

When I received my MeMeBox Rose Scentbox I was especially happy about two products from the brand Rosemine, one foam cleanser and the Rosemine Plumpy Tint I’ll show you here. Both have an adorable packaging and lovers of floral design will be more than happy about the appearance of these products. By the way, the Rosemine Foam Cleanser will be reviewed soon, too, which became a member of my daily skincare routine product family. :)

Rosemine Plumpy Tint Roseberry

The brand Rosemine is made by the Korean cosmetic manufacturing company called “EVAS”. The name is not chosen randomly, I think, because they stress the point, that their brand is wants to “give people clean & safe lifestyle (by Christian principle)”. I’m feeling a bit discomfortable if a cosmetic brand or company also makes religious remarks, since skincare and cosmetics should be reaching beyond religious aspects…Nevertheless, let’s have a closer look at the Rosemine Plumpy Tint: This is a jelly type lip tint available in two different shades, “Princess Coral” and “Roseberry”. I’m showing you the shade “Roseberry” here, a red berry shade. I remember that I saw this lip tint on one of Pony’s beauty turorials on youtube, too.

Rosemine Plumpy Tint Roseberry

As I already said, the packaging of the product line is inspired by roses and has a beautiful and girly cardboard box. The description of the tint is in Korean only, unfortunately, that is why I cannot provide you with more detailled information. The lip tint comes in a plastic tube with a plastic applicator. The only ingredient information comes on the frontside of the tube, because it says: “a very fresh french rose water and ginseng extract for irresistable and attractive lips”. The tint itself is a jelly type tint and smells very lightly of roses. Once applied I don’t smell it anymore.

Rosemine Plumpy Tint Roseberry

The application can be a bit tricky because it tends to get patchy and you have to apply quickly. I normally apply 2 layers and use a lip brush. I noticed that this gives the best results. I also noticed that the tint seems to separate into two phases if you don’t use it for some time. You’ll get an oily phase and a colored, jelly phase. Keep in mind to shake your tube in order to prevent this. The good thing is, that the oily phase makes your lips feel smooth and the lip tint doesn’t dry your lips in the end, but it looks kind of glossy.

Somehow I also did have my problems with the tube. It seemed liuke everytime I used this lip tint I pressed out too much of the product. It is quite hard to controll the amount you want to use. But on the other hand, once the color is appllied it leaves a great stain and looks very pretty and visible on the lips. The result makes me very happy and the packaging aswell…so if they update the difficult formula, it is be the perfect tint. The tube contains 13 g of product and the retail price on the company’s page is around 9 US$. I received mine with the MeMeBox Rose Scentbox, but it is also available in the MeMeShop for 11 US$. If you want to buy it from their shop keep in mind the various promotions they offer:

Unboxing: MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle

2. July 2014

Two days ago a huge box arrives at my doorstep and I was completely surprised what this heavy box might be, when I discovered that it was a set of the three scentboxes by MeMeBox. There were three MeMeBox Scentboxes available, each dedicated to a specific scent topic, and if you bought two of them, you received a third one for free. Again a superb deal by MeMeBox I couldn’t resist :D

MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle



MeMeBox is a box service company, offering a wide amount of different beauty boxes. Unlike most western beauty boxes which have to be subscribed for on a monthly basis, MeMeBoxes can be preordered but that doesn’t force you to buy more than the desired box. They ship to many countries and the products they send in their boxes are mainly Korean. Apart from their monthly Global Boxes like the ones I reviewed previously (check out the links at the end of the post), they also have a huge amount of themed boxes, Mini Boxes, Boxes where you know what is inside, so called Superboxes with a higher value and so on…just check out their online store and you’ll find a huge selection of different boxes. Since they have become very popular within the blogger community they sell out pretty fast, but they bring up new beauty boxes so fast, that you cannot keep up with them anyways.

The three scentboxes were themed Rose, Babypowder and Grapefruit Scentbox. At first I only wanted to buy the rose scent box, because I really love rose scented products, but then I was kind of undecided, because the babypowder scent box was appealing, too…and in the deal they offered I would get the grapefruitbox on top. So I finally ended up buying the whole set for 30 US$ (each of the boxes cost 15 US$).


Let’s start with the MeMeBox Rose Scentbox:

MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle


MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle


Evas Rosemine Plumpy Tint 01 Roseberry (13 g for US$11- box contained fullsize product)

A jelly-type lip tint in cherry red. The scent is very faint, but the packaging: OMG! Both Rose Mine products have such a girly beautifull packaging, I’m in love! the tint itself can be used on cheeks and lips, but it has to be blended in quickly, because it dries fast. It also leaves a good stain on your finger if you use them from blending or applying XD


Evas Rosemine Floral Remedy Foamy Cleanser  (120 ml for US$22- box contained fullsize product)

Again, I love the packaging! ♥ And this is a nice partner for my Sum 37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick (I will do a review soon). This is a foamy cleanser which contains also rose petals. The scent is not overpowering but nice.


Happy Bath Rose Essence Body Wash (200 g for US$11- box contained fullsize product)

I didn’t use it yet, but it smells divine for lovers of rose scented products *_*


Hope Girl Magic Skin Primer  (35 g for US$33- box contained 2 ml*5ea samples)

Such a pity that there was no full size of this! I love it! It smells super nice (the scent is stronger than of the rose mine products) and it is a nice primer, giving a satin smooth skin.

MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle


Second is the MeMeBox Babypowder Scentbox:

Eva’s Mimi Lauryn’s Perfume Soap French Blossom (100 g for US$18- box contained fullsize product)

I’m a solid soap hoarder. I’ve so many of them and I’m too slow in using them. I should start to change something about it XD The scent is really nice of this soap, but I didn’t unpack it yet. The packaging is also too beautiful to throw away ;_;


Urban Lailly 7 Seconds Make-Up Booster (50 g for US$40- box contained fullsize product)

I was excited about this item. It is a light blue colored priming cream, providing moisture and a more even skintone. I applied it on my hand and the feeling reminds me of Secret Key’s Snow White Cream.


Happy Fam Deo Fresh Baby Powder (20ea for US$2- box contained fullsize product)

These are Deodorant wipes for your armpits. Great for putting in a handbag or at work or travellling. A nice idea :) Didn’t try it yet.


Consensis fabric deodorizer (330 ml for US$7 – box contained deluxe sample)

A fabric deodorizing spay. I don’t have anything like that, so I’m happy about it :)


MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle

And last but not least the MeMebox Grapefruit Scentbox:

MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle

MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle


Eva’s Mimi Lauryn’s Dress Perfume Mist de Grapefruit (150 ml for US$18 – box contained fullsize product)

Another fabric, room and car spray with a fresh fruity scent. I like the etiquette of the spray bottle with its floral design.


Kaell28 Sunkilling Grapefruit Gel (270 ml for US$30- box contained fullsize product)

A multipurpose soothing gel. I love multipurpose gels and this one will replace my Etude House Aloe Soothing Gel as soon as it is empty. A pitty that it does not come with a pump though. Didn’t try it yet.


Happy Fam Deo Fresh Grapefruit (20ea for US$2- box contained fullsize product)

These are Deodorant wipes for your armpits. Great for putting in a handbag or at work or traveling. A nice idea :) Didn’t try it yet.


Sun Smile Hydro Gel Choosy Fruit Lip Mask (3 ml x 2ea for US$2- box contained fullsize product)

Finally, I can try a lip mask! :D I’m happy about this product and super curious to try it :)


MeMeBox Scentbox Bundle

All in all, I’m very happy with the boxes. The products are nice and they didn’t send a hand cream at all, which was my first thought when I was thinking of scented products. I have one or two favorite products in each box, but the one I love most is the Rose Scentbox ♥ Which one do you like most?
