Korean /Asian Beauty and Skincare Talk!

Recommended Posts

I only found out about PH testing recently too from a blog too (http://picoprince.com/

So insightful and I switched my cleanser after reading a review from there. 

 

Have you guys tried a powder cleanser? It's a cleanser in the form of a powder that turns into a foam cleanser when you add some water to it. 

It feels soft and clean, but your skin is still very hydrated, not feeling that tightness afterwards! 

I always love trying new, innovative products and I'm so glad I decided to give this one a try.

 

yes i've tried the cleansing powder from fancl!! it felt quite cool at first, got quite annoying in the end, and the foaming process wasn't consistent (sometimes i was able to create a lot of foam, sometimes not), and in the end, it was too dry for my face, so i stopped using it....

So I purchased a 3 month OH SHIT MASK sub for a friend.

I didn't cancel it because she didn't care the masks were from China.

 

But now that they are closing, I wouldn't hold my breath for an automatic refund.

Any thoughts of who to contact?

 

thanks!

my bnk haul came today.  All of the items in the lower right hand corner, including the tonymoly delight & clean it zero minis, were free samples

this is the club clio lipstick that I was drooling over at memebox - where they sold it for over 20.00.  I got it for half that price at BNK.  Color 7 Some

That's another crappy thing about Memebox!!  The samples they send are few and far between and they suck!

On a happier note, I'd like to say Testerkorea got back to me to say they might organize a big sale on their site by the end of the month. They didn't give me any extra details though.

 

I wanted to put an order through, but I won't be home last week of Dec till some time in Jan so that could be a prob esp since its Christmas season. Thats good news, I can expand my wishlist till then..

I noticed you were a part of Tiffany's TesterKorea group so if they're doing a sale that extra 20% off is going to be fantastic! LOL

If they were a good company they would refund any months that she didn't receive automatically. I would see if you can contact them via the website. https://www.ohsheetmask.com/?page_id=391 Maybe they'll just send your friend 3 months worth of masks in one chunk or something, who knows? But hopefully they get back to you! Keep us updated!

Is anyone else still waiting for their Etude House order from Nov. 5th/6th? It's been over a months and I think many people got their order by now and I'm still waiting. It still says "origin post is preparing shipment" =/

Lovely haul, @@biancardi, I've been eyeing the scrub foam and the spot treatment since innisfree opened their world shop, but my skin has been behaving well lately, both are still on my 'to buy' list. Edited by seachange

this is my second purchase of the scrub foam - I love this stuff - it isn't that harsh and foams up nicely.  Since my apple scrub (the one that was in snow white box) is not easily found, but innisfree is, this is a great sub for it - it is a bit more exfoliating than the apple scrub, so I do not recommend it for those with really dry skin.

 

the spot treatment I got as a sample and I am always looking for more spot treatments!  It is totally unfair that I have to combat wrinkles and zits at the same time.

So I just got a shipping notification for the infamous KPop Beauty Box. 

Let's see if all the wait was worth it! (doubtful lol)

I wonder if that's the weird shipping notification I received today. Was it a woman's name not a company name?

Oh...my goodness. 

I got my K Pop Beauty Box today and I'm pretty sure we all just got ripped off and the woman who runs this is running away with our money laughing.

 

Mind you this box was $29.99 plus $8.64 shipping. No joke.

 

Here is what I got:

 

 

 

post-105935-0-78929900-1418662252_thumb.jpg

1. Etude House Silk Scarf Repair Hair Essence

2. Etude House Sweet Recipe All Over Color Blush

3. Innisfree Green Tea Hydro Gel Mask

4. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder

5. Innisfree Second Skin Mask

6. Holika Holika Pig-Nose Black Head Kit

 

 

 

Their "retail total" for everything comes to $56.66, which is hilarious.

Awful. Just awful.

 

(mind you this wouldn't be a bad box if it was like $15-$20 with free shipping (kind of like a beauteque BB bag) but this was almost $40 shipped.)

oh my....

Yep. 

 

VERY quick googling shows me the value to be in the mid $30's. Which could vary depending on where you buy stuff, but still.

The box was $30, nevermind the ridiculous shipping cost.

 

The box it came in was HUGE, and actually nice and sturdy for storage. But it was 90% (no joke...) full of pink shreds of paper that stuck to EVERYTHING. They also put the pink shreds on TOP of the products so I had to dig for everything and make a huge mess.

 

I'll be totally open in saying I recieved this box for just the shipping cost for purpose of review, but I'm not happy. Not at all. I'm so glad I didn't suggest this box to my readers or I'd be so embarassed

Wow...that is just unfair. You are right it would be worth it for $20 including shipping. Maybe.

 

For what it's worth, the Innisfree powder is great. I carry one in my bag and love it.

And I am obsessed with the Innisfree Hydrogel masks. They are the best!

@@MissJexie That silly photo they posted on their Facebook with sample sizes in it, discouraged TONS of people. I'm so glad I was one of those people that saw that and thought "If this is how they want to represent themselves...I am not risking it until the first box was released."

 

Yikes. @@Krystyn Lowe must be pretty annoyed right about now as well. 

 

Between this and Oh Sh** Mask....

 

I'm suddenly feeling much more cautious about such things.

That's good to hear!

 

I think that's what makes this box such a bummer- these aren't terrible products by any means, it's just such a low value and such a small amount of product for what people paid for it. I just couldn't be confident in recommending this box to anyone after this. You'd think they'd want to start off with a bang and not a thud.

@@MissJexie Totally agree. As you said it would be an OK box for half the price or less.

 

And speaking of Oh Sh** Mask @@cfisher

I emailed them to find out the status of the 3 month gift sub I purchased.

He answered right away and said the December box is shipping now and he would gladly reimburse me for the last 2 months if I wanted to cancel.

@@LisaLeah That sounds so confusing. So are they not closing down business then? 

This was the email I received from him late last night.

Hours after I emailed btw...Oh and I bought a sub for Dec/Jan/Feb

 

Hi Lisa,

 

Thanks for the mail.

 

We're no longer taking new orders after the December box, but of course we're fulfilling orders that have been made already if they're multiple/future subscriptions.

 

Items are listed as Out of Stock on the website etc.. We're not gonna just disappear and not inform anyone!

 

I'm currently sending out tracking details for the December box as well informing subscribers etc..

 

Your tracking details for the Dec box are below, but if you're concerned and would like to cancel the 2 future boxes just let us know and we'll do that for you, but you can be assured every order will be fulfilled.

 

The tracking reference for the Dec box is (then he gave me my tracking number)

@@LisaLeah Hahahaha. I guess we won't know what's going on with them for awhile. Thanks for the update though, I was really curious about that! 

 

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I really do think this means that Paypal shut them down for new payments. But of course they want to fill all current orders, that's a huge chunk of change I'm sure as far as profit goes!
