About a week ago, I was contacted by BB Cosmetic
to review 2 of the products they are offering, and I was so thrilled! Since this is the first review I'm doing for them, I'll just begin with a little introduction of the company.
BB Cosmetic began its journey via Ebay in the early 2009 and has since started to expand into the global market. Recently, they have launched an online site (http://bbcosmetic.com/) to provide better convenience for their buyers!
BB Cosmetic offers a WIDE range of Korean beauty products from various brands (seriously, the list of brands is so long I couldn't even count! the image above is not even the full list!), so if you're a Korean beauty junkie like myself, you should definitely check them out.
I'm always up to try and explore new Korean beauty brands and products. My favourite thing about Korean beauty products is the fact that they are often affordable and of good quality. Apart from the bigger and more popular brands such as Etude House, InnisFree, 3CE, etc, there are actually many more Korean brands out there that offers really good quality beauty products for us to explore.
They can get a little pricey if you buy them directly in stores, so I always get my Korean beauty products online as they are so much more affordable that way. On top of that, I also have an 8% off discount code
valid up till 8th November 2016 for you guys so make sure to use it upon checking out!
Korean brands also love collaborating with other companies to come out with cute and adorable special editions products, so if you're the kind of person who buys a product for its packaging (*cough*
), do keep a look out for those specially packaged products!
: Even though this post is very kindly sponsored by them, I have chosen the product myself and was not paid and asked to mention anything in particular. ;)
So now that we've gotten our introduction and disclaimer out of the way, let's begin with the review!
The first product I chose from their website is the Petitfee's Black Pearl And Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch
. Honestly, I can't even remember when was the last time I used a skincare product specifically for my eyes. So when I saw Petitfee's Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch, I decided to try it out because it sounds really nourishing and I guess it's time I should start taking care of the delicate area around my eyes.
Shipping only took 4 days and all items were well-packed in perfect condition.
So the two main ingredients of this eye patch/mask are Black Pearl and Gold. These two ingredients are widely used in many skincare products because of its distinctive benefits it provides to our skin.
Black Pearl mainly provides Amino Acid which helps rejuvenate and reconstruct our skin, making it more supple, smooth, radiant, and flawless. Gold is also capable of cell-activation and cell-stimulation, which helps increase the elasticity of our skin (thus reducing wrinkles! woots!). Apart from that, Gold also helps improve blood circulation which will keep our skin bright, glowing and healthy! Amazing!
I figured out that both products would be the perfect ingredients to include in an eye mask as the delicate area around our eyes are more prone to aging and the appearance of fine lines. Being a young adult, I also have dark eye circles benefit my eyes which is actually caused by the lack of blood circulation around the eyes.
One pack costs only US$10.90 and it contains 60 patches! Which means if you were to use 2 patches a week, it will be able to last up to 7 months! That's really affordable in my opinion. In my case, I love having mask sessions weekly together with my boyfriend, so these eye patches was a sweet addition to our mask collection.
Like the name mention, this eye patch is a gel type eye patch that is thick and soft. I like how the edges are smooth so it doesn't make my eyes sensitive. Having it on was really comfy as well, as I nearly fell asleep while having it on! After a short while, I did felt a tingling sensation. It's not painful, in fact, it felt really nice and cooling.
I feel like eye patches are great for that extra care the skin around your eye needs. Like I mentioned, I haven't been taking good care of the delicate skin around my eyes as I'm just too lazy to apply another layer of eye cream. However, these eye patches are so handy to use as you don't even have to massage or pat it into your skin for it to absorb. Simply slap them on! I'm not sure if there's a limit to the amount of times I should use this in the week but I have been using them every night since I received them because it's just an easy way to show my skin some extra love. Plus, it makes me feel extra pampered.
