This is my very first Kawaii Panda Box so I was pretty excited when I received it last Saturday! This box is quite new to me and I haven't really seen a lot of reviews or unboxing videos/posts on it so I just got one to see if it's another good option to try out new products. As this box didn't came with an information card I checked different online shops and checked the retail prices and availability!
Etude House // Fresh Cup Strawberry Smoothie Modeling Mask
The first product I immediately noticed due to it's size is th Fresh Cup Strawberry Smoothie Modeling Mask from Etude House! It's a modeling mask, that means you have to mix the powder with water yourself, it's also only for one use, which I didn't expect at first as it's a huge container with quite a lot of powder. A spatula is included and you can directly pour the water into the plastic container.
The Strawberry Smoothie mask claims to moisturise, brightens and sooths skin. There are also 2 other types, aloe smoohie to improve irritations and moisturising as well as soothing the skin, and blueberry smoothie which provides rich nourishment and elasticity.
I'm excited to try it out as I've never had this type of masks of a korean brand.Price: 3,500WON (3,20$) roseroseshop I 5,98$ Jolse
Celranico // Green Tea Seed Oil Balancing Essence
This is a brand I've never heard of before! It's an essence and smells like a lot of other green tea products, though I can also sense a little bit of alcohol in it, which is also quite far up on the ingredients list.
Sadly I haven't found a lot about this product nor it's brand, it seems to be quite new. The official website states that it's an organic cosmetic brand which only focuses on ingredients and not on fancy packaging. Check out CosDNA for a few ingredient lists, if you're interested.
It's a clear, watery-type of essence. I tried it on the back of my hands and it seems to be moisturizing though I can't say anything about long-term effects as I haven't tried it on my face yet.Price: 19,000WON (17$) roseroseshop I 11,25$ roseroseshop (ebay) I 19,000WON (17$) Celranico Website
Skinfood // Jelly Peau Peach
This is a jelly mask pack which you have to wash off. I got the peach version but there are also strawberry, banana and grape jelly available. The instructions say to spread the jelly onto your face and massage and after 10 minutes you can wash it off. These masks focus on different types of skin benefits such as nourishing (banana), moisturizing (grape), vitalizing (peach) and hydrating (strawberry).
Once I've used it I will try to write a review on this, as I'm myself very curious on how this jelly feels and works on my face and how it smells like!Price: 1,500WON (1,40$) TesterKorea I 1,500WON (1,40$) roseroseshop
Skinfood // My Short Cake Setting Mascara
Another Skinfood product! I have to admit that the name of the mascara doesn't really sound quite promising. Will the mascara make my lashes look longer? Will it hold the curl? I have no idea. But, ignoring the name, I will definitely try out this product, but not too soon as I have many other mascaras that I have to use up before.
After searching I have found a lot of good reviews on it!Price: 3,300WON (3$) roseroseshop
A'PIEU // Sweet Tea Lip Balm (Pink)
I love lip products and this cute one made me really happy! It's small, fits into every handbag and the design is adorable. Besides the pink version that I got, there is also coral, red, white, green and magic. The most interesting ones are probably the white, green and magic lip balms. These change the color once applied!
They are all moisturizing. I tried it on my lips and on the back of my hands and definitely like how it moisturizes them. On the back of my hand I was able to see a very slight and sheer pinkish color but it's not noticable on my lips anymore.
The only thing I don't like about these types of lip balms is, that you have to use your fingers to apply, so it can get a little unhygienic, if you're not able to wash your hands at the moment.Price: 5,500WON (5$) TesterKorea I 5,500WON (5$) roseroseshop
Dr. Young // Clear and Glowing Sky Mask Special Care System with Jeju Citrus
The last product in the box is this sheetmask of the to me unknown brand Dr. Young. It's got a really cute packaging. One main ingredient is citrus which helps brightening your skin.
I found the brands (singaporean) instagram and website and they stated that all their masks get folded by machines, so no worries! You can buy these masks online and in stores, located in Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Myanmar and USA (SF and LA)!Price: 3,000WON (2,70$) roseroseshop I 3,000WON (2,70$) Dr.Young Official Website
This box sums up to roughly 26 $ - 32 $ depending on where you buy it or if it's on sale. (I saw all of these products for cheaper on roseroseshop, but I included the original price without the sale!) All of the items are full size.
I also like the variety of products included in the Kawaii Panda Box, Skincare, Makeup and Sheetmasks. The only thing that could be improved would be that the box should come with an information sheet on how to use the stuff, just in case they don't have english description on their packages.
I paid around 25 $ (including shipping) so this box was definitely worth it!
All in all I would definitely recommend checking out the box as it's a UK based shop and offers cheap shipping within the UK and Europe! They sadly don't ship worldwide though.Check out their website here and the boxes here.
