TonyMoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch - $2.96
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Sorbitol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Fragrance, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Erythritol, Trehalose, Bambusa Vulgaris Shoot Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Water, Solanum Tuberosum (Potato) Pulp Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate.
Thoughts: TonyMoly has a cute panda line and this is their eye mask. I like eye masks for their temporary hydrating and brightening effects. This one contains Niacinamide which is well known or it’s brightening effect. It also contains Bamboo and Aloe Vera extracts which are both good for hydration and soothing. A lot of subscription boxes have sheetmasks in them so it’s nice to see an eye sheetmask. This is a popular mask online and I’m looking forward to trying it out.
Velieve Fondue Foam Cleanser Green Tea - $14.99
Ingredients: Water, Myristic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Lauric Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Beeswax, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Morus Alba Leaf , Butylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf , Peg-100 Stearate, Polysorbate 20, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Gypsophila Paniculata Root Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Extract, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium Edta, Fragrance
Thoughts: This cleanser could have come in rose or green tea. I’m glad I got the green tea version as that’s better for oily/red skin which is what I suffer from. I love how many fruit extracts that this cleanser contains. Sadly I already have a ton of cleansers, and I don’t know the pH of this one, so it’s going in my gifting box.
Lador Perfect Fill-UP Hair Ampoule - $1.99
Ingredients: Purified Water, Steartrimonium Chloride, Ethanol, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Silk, Ceramide, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance
Thoughts: I love that they included a hair product! I’ve tried very few Asian products for hair and I can’t wait to start trying new things. This is full sized and promises to repair damaged hair while moisturising and nourishing it. This is single use only, and you mix with equal parts water for it to become a thick gel that you apply to your hair. You leave it on your hair for 20 minutes and rinse off.
D’RAN Aqua Wonder Intensive Renewing Essence - $35.99
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Beta-Glucan, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer, Betaine, Lactobacillus/Bean Fermented Extract, Niacinamide, Alcohol, Dipropylene Glycol, C14-22 Alcohols, Vegetable Squalane, Macademia Seed Oil, Triethylhexanoin, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Arachidyl Glucoside, Shea Butter, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Ceramide3, Cholesterol, PEG-100 Stearate, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Codium Tomentosum Extract, Sweet Laver Extract, Enteromorpha Compressa Extract, Agar-Agar Weed Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Glacial Milk, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Spice, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Methylparaben, Divinyldimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, C12-13 Pareth-23, C12-13 Pareth-3, Potassium Hydroxide, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Trehalose
Thoughts: Another full sized product in the box. It’s from a brand I’ve not heard of which makes me happy. One of the prime reasons I get subscription boxes is to discover new products. This is a super hydrating essence which brightens skin. I like the inclusion of Niacinamide, less enthused by all the polymers and alcoholic ingredients though. Someone with sensitive skin might want to give this a miss.
Purederm Ultra Repair Foot Mask in Apricot -$6 (£2.24)
Purchase here: Amazon
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Petrolatum, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Macadmia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Urea, Alcohol, Methylparaben, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Bark/Leaf/Twig Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Scutellaria Balcalensis Root Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin, Menthol, Propylparaben, Salicylic Acid, Triclosan, Sodium Chloride, Propylene Methychloroisothiazolinone, Methyisothiazolinone, Fragrance (Parfum)
Thoughts: This is a foot mask from the purederm brand. Purederm is known to me, and I don’t think of it as a high end brand. It promises to moisturise and nourish skin. You wear the socks for 20-30 minutes and then massage the rest of the lotion in. I do like receiving masks in my boxes, but this was the 2/3 masks included and I was disappointed to see that. I tend to use foot cream in the evenings and don’t find my feet need the extra bit of moisture. Going to save this for summer though for post a beach trip!
Velieve Girlish Mask Honey Moisture - $1.99
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Glycereth-26 , Honey Extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Butylene Gycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Panthenol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Allantoin, Coceth-7, PPG-1-PEG-9 Lauryl Glycol Ether, Methylparaben, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance
Thoughts: This girl has sass! This is another product from the Velieve brand, and is a honey sheet mask. Now I am in the one a day club so I do like being given sheetmasks, especially ones with pretty packaging! This mask contains Honey and Royal Jelly extract, so I’m saving it for a day when my skin needs that extra hydration punch.
I was really pleased with the variety in my first Mishi box. There was a cleanser, essence and hair product, plus three masks. I could have done with a different product other than another mask though. Or maybe even two of the Girlish masks instead of the Purederm mask. Would have also been nice to get more products that I could use more than once, 4/6 are one shot only. I certainly got my value back on the box and was introduced to new brands. Was a great surprise to come home to and looking forward to the April box!
