Review: Pai Skincare Cleanse and Tone Starter Kit (Part1)

Today I will bring you a review of 2 of the products in the Pai Cleanse and Tone Starter Kit. They are Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary Bioaffinity Tonic and Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Cream. I bought the kit directly from the website <click here for the link, I am not affiliated> and there was an offer that time where I’d get a complimentary full sized eye cream! Bonus, I thought. I upsized my cleanser to 200ml so for the kit, and for USD$156, I get:

  • Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Cream 200ml
  • Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary Bioaffinity Tonic 50ml
  • Exfoliating Muslin Face Cloth
  • Geranium & Thistle Combination Skin Cream (50ml)
  • Echium & Argan Soothing Eye Cream (15ml)

Hada Labo Cleansers: A Little Comparison

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

What am I going to write? I can just say, I don’t like this and be done with it. But then again, what’s the fun in that? Instead of telling you what I don’t like about it, why don’t I tell you what I wish it could have been? That will be a more positive way of looking at things, right? LOL! No, I don’t think so. It’ll just come out as sarcastic and I can’t help it :-P

Modbox Review: Sampling Within Your Control And Budget

If you’ve been following this blog and reading diligently (thank you!), you’d already know that I am not keen on beauty boxes. I know what I want, and I like to have control of what I’ll be getting in my boxes. I hate that surprises become disappointments and it’s just an overwhelming feeling that I’ve wasted my money on a bunch of crappy samples I never use. Recently, I was approached by Modbox to try out their Intro Kit for bloggers, and I was a skeptic. I told Jess (co-founder of Modbox) as much, that I might not be kind in my review, and she was still keen to know what I think. So, here it is – my honest review of yet another subscription box that seems to be mushrooming here.
