Review: Miniso Australia

I’m so sorry for my general absence on everything except for Instagram lately – work has been dragging me through life! That being said, I did take the time to post a haul video on the fun products that Miniso Australia gifted me to review – check below for the haul video. There is also a make up tutorial for my look in the video, using all of these products (all of which you can get for under $8) – that will be coming up in the next week or two, depending on when I get an entire day to myself to edit.

Review: Jellypot (Moonshot)

Moonshot Jellypot Eyeshadow Review

It honestly kills me that it’s so difficult to get Moonshot products outside of Korea. Ever since the brand’s launch in Korea, I had been eying their products is absolute envy and the main thing that I’d wanted to get my hands on were the jellypots! I saw a photo of Lee Sung Kyung wearing the purple shade and, from that moment on, it was an epic journey to get my hands on them.

Luckily for me though, I have a great friend who puts up with these sometimes ridiculous obsessions with me so, me and Sophia got ourselves quite lost in Apgujeong when we went looking for their flagship store. Eventually though (and braving that little bit of rain) we found it and I felt like I was in heaven. I love the pigmentations of their products, I love the quality, service and… as a kpop fan, the blasting of Big Bang’s MADE album definitely made the experience. Sorry.

Anyway! So at Moonshoot, I was assisted by one of their great make up artists who helped me test out the products and showed me different applications as well as recommending products and colours that suited my skin tone. For the jelly pots, I ended up going with that purple that I was addicted to, a metallic black which I don’t use much of but liked to use for a night-time look, as well as a rose-gold like colour. The last one I actually received for free as a gift (I bought so much, I can’t even) and was recommended to me by the artist who said that it is one of their most popular shades – as well as a ‘Dara’s recommendation’ – and where Sandara goes, I follow.

Well, let’s get right into this review!

Review: Pink Nail Treatment Pack (Koelf)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

This is (for now) the last in my series of Koelf masks so, first off, I want to thank RoseRoseShop for sending all of these over for me to test. Previous to this, I’ve never actually used anything from Koelf before. Their products definitely have their pro and cons, but it’s great to see them for myself!

Recently, I’ve tested heel patches (on my mother), elbow patches (on myself) and cleaners and creams from their sister brand Petitfee. To finish us off, I’m going to go back to the Koelf brand with their pink nail treatment pack. I expect this to be very similar to the previous hydrogel packs, though I don’t think I’ve used anything similar for my nails before.

Before using this, I thought that my nails were in a pretty good condition but – let me tell you – you have no idea how dry they are until after they are hydrated! Lets give this a shot. On with the review!

Review: Callus Care Elbow Patch (Koelf)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare

I’m back with another review (of course), and this time it’s another Koelf hydropatch – for your elbows. For a lot of us, we pay so much attention to moisturising our faces, legs and necks (especially our necks, okay) and more difficult to see spots tend to be neglected. Dry elbows don’t look very nice and nor do they feel great. Cracked skin can make sure a pretty painful experience, especially in an area that moves and rubs against other surfaces so often.

I have to admit that my own elbows are pretty neglected. They have been dry to the point of hurting before, which isn’t something to be that proud about. For that reason, I was looking forward to trying this out. I wanted something that could give my elbows a quick hydration that lasted even after the product wore off. It was also important for it to be easy to use and not affect my movement, as I do a lot of work at home.

If you’ve read my previous Koelf review, you will know that I also tested their heel patch. For this one, I’ll be using my own body instead of my mum’s (but thanks for helping me apply it, mum!) and giving you my thoughts on it. Like the previous, this product was also sent to me for review by RoseRoseShop so don’t forget to check them out too!

Review: Callus Care Heel Patch (Koelf)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare

I’m back with another review and, instead of focusing on our faces, let’s stop to think about our feet! We stand and walk on them all day, force them into pretty (very probably painful) shoes, so it’s only natural that they deserve a bit of pampering as well. We have moisturisers, gels and peeling masks – which I personally only use once every few months but really enjoy playing with – but here’s a hydrating patch by Koelf.

This product is a lot faster than peeling masks and specifically targets one part of the foot (the heel) though can obviously be used on other parts of the feet if needed. You basically apply it to your heel and then put on your socks (this step is optional, but recommended if you don’t want to slip and slide around). It says to keep it on for a minimum of an hour, but I don’t think there is a maximum time you can have it on. It really just depends on your comfort and time allowance.

I was sent a pack of these to test by the awesome people at RoseRoseShop and each pack as six sheets (or three pairs). They’re really cheap actually and on sale for $3.36 each – not a bad price, really. Because I personally have pretty decent feet, in that they don’t really get dry or crack, I asked my mother to test these for me instead and we observed the use and effectiveness together.

Interested? Let’s go!
