Mystery Box - Beauty Products from Hong Kong

I recently took part in a mystery swap with Maria who swaps on beauty box swaps on Facebook.  She brought me back all these goodies from her holiday in Hong Kong.  I paid £10 including postage.  Look also at the very cute little notes about what everything is and how to use them.  Love it!









Here is what I got:

4 x assorted paper face masks - the interesting sounding "bird's nest collagen mask" is not available in the UK.  Looking forward to trying these out - they look really good.

Under Eye Masks - 2 packs - for hydrating and reducing dark circles.  In the pink packet there are 3 pairs and in the foil packet 1 pair.  I've used a similar product from Estee Lauder before.  Looking forward to trying as I suffer from dark circles.

Face Wash - a hydrating gel cleanser - I can never have enough cleansers, looking forward to trying this one out.

A beautiful eyeshadow palette in gorgeous sparkly shades - sorry my photo doesn't do it justice.  Really pretty shades.

Oil Clear Blotting Paper - I always shine in my t-zone so looking forward to trying these out.

Peel Gel - a gentle gel which removes dead skin cells.  Maria recommends using once a week.  To use, cleanse and then pat skin dry (but not completely dry) apply kidney bean size of gel over the face avoiding eyes and lips and rub in a circular motion.  White bits will start to appear - and this is dead skin! eek!  Rinse and then apply a moisture/hydrating mask or moisturiser.

The final item is wrapped in orange tissue paper and is a winter warmer the Asian way!  It is unrefined black cane sugar with a hint of ginger.  Add the whole piece to a mug of hot water, stir and enjoy!  Sounds yummy.

I am really pleased with all the contents of the box and all the trouble Maria went to.  I'll let you know how I get on with all the products. x

  11. Blotting papers! Used to be common as grass, but hard to get now. I wonder if the uptake in mattifying products has caused this. I get a package of them whenever I came find them. Their wonderful for keeping your T zone shine-free.
