Mamonde Cherry Blossom Foot Socks Mask

This is just going to be a quick post about a novelty product that I bought recently from TesterKorea. This is the Cherry Blossom Foot Socks Mask which is said to soften and sooth the skin on the soles of your feet.

After a long day of wearing heels I decided to treat myself to this foot mask. To prep my feet I scrubbed them in the shower to get rid of the hard skin on my feet.


The mask comes in one piece and you have to tear down the middle to make two “socks”. Once the socks were on I left them for 20 minutes to absorb the product. The essence inside the foot mask was refreshing and smelt great.

After 20 minutes I took the socks off and massaged the excess product into my feet. I have to say my feet felt very soft after using this. However I don’t think I’d purchase this again because it isn’t any better than using a thick foot cream.


Tester Korea Haul

Hey guys, so I’ve been really busy the past few weeks with work and haven’t found the time to make any posts. However, I am going to try make some more time for blogging because I really enjoy it and I love sharing all the new products that I’ve been trying out.

For those of you that don’t know, Tester Korea is a website where you can buy sample size and full sized Korean beauty products. It is really well priced and it’s great because you don’t have to commit to buying a full sized product when you can just test out a sample.

I found the website easy to navigate and the checkout process was hassle-free. I didn’t have any specific items I wanted to try so I just got a selection of random things that looked interesting. The prices are in Korean won so I kept a calculator nearby to convert the price into pounds. Postage and packaging is measured by the weight of the package and the region which you live in. Overall it cost 47,500won (£28) for the 13 items and 11,190 won (£7) for P&P to the UK. I made the order on the 14th of August and the package arrived on the 27th of August.

Now on to what I bought. As with all packages I receive from Korea this was immaculately packaged with bubble wrap.


1) MAMONDE Cherry Blossom Foot Mask

I haven’t tried this yet but it seemed like an interesting novelty product.

2) It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream 30ml  – Vanilla Cotton

I thought this was a cute hand cream to carry in my purse. The packaging is so adorable!

3) ETUDE HOUSE Oh Happy Day Hand Bouguet Hand Cream 25ml – Rich Sugar

Another cute hand cream, this has a sweet fragrance and is very moisturising.

4) Iope Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning Couple Trial Kit

I’ve heard good things about this essence so I look forward to testing it once my current essence runs out.

5) Innisfree Olive real cleansing tissue 10 sheet

I’m not a big fan of make-up wipes but this one is amazing. It literally melts away make-up including waterproof mascara, leaving skin soft and clean.

6) Laneige Time Freeze Essence 5ml

I’m all about wrinkle prevention so maybe this essence will be the one.

7) THE FACE SHOP Jewel Therapy Cherry Blossom Clear Hair Mist 100ml

This is a nice hair mist which gives the hair a pretty fragrance, I do however find that it doesn’t add shine like it’s supposed to.

8) NATURE REPUBLIC Happy Mate Shoe Spray Soft Floral 150ml

This is a spray for your shoes. I just spray the sole of the shoes and let it dry overnight, it keep your shoes smelling fresh. Also the packaging is adorable 🙂

9) Somang Pure Female cleanser 5ml.*10ea

As the name suggests this is a feminine cleanser. Normal body washes are too harsh to use “down there”, this wash leaves me feeling fresh as a daisy.

10) BANILA CO The Secret Highlighter #02 Moon

This is a beautiful gold liquid highlighter. I think it’s a dupe for Benefits Moon Beam which I believe has been discontinued in the UK

11) E CHOICE Shea Butter Foot Cream 60g

This is a really thick foot cream, perfect for healing those tired soles.

12) Innisfree The green tea seed serum 1ml*10ea

I’m looking for a new serum so I thought I’d give this a go, yet to try it though.

13) Etude Baking Powder B.B Deep Cleansing Foam 30 ml

I’ve tried this face wash before but I wanted a sample size for my travel bag.


Finally here are all the samples that I received with my purchase. I would have preferred less BB Creams because they won’t match my skin tone.

Overall I’m very happy with my Tester Korea experience. The products are fairly priced, there is a wide variety of items on sale and the buying process was very easy. I will be buying a few more things when I get the chance, if you want individual product reviews let me know in the comments.

New Handbag Essentials – Etude House AC Clinic Intense Hinoki Water Mist & Mamonde Hand Creams

Hey guys just a quick post here to show you two products that I carry in my handbag everyday which I have been loving recently.

The first one is Etude House AC Clinic Intense Hinoki Water Mist 100ml which I bought from YesStyle for £9.90.


I am new to facial mists but I am loving this one so far. Hinoki cypress water (53%) creates moisturised and clean skin. It takes care of sebum and dead skin cells to create smooth skin without shine. It contains salicylic acid to soothe troublesome skin and is free from animal cruelty, mineral oil, artificial colours and artificial fragrance free.

I spray about 2-3 pumps of this this on my face half way through the day to refresh my make up, hydrate my face and reduce the oil on my skin. This mist has a bit of an odd fragrance sort of like cucumbers, but it disappears once it is on the skin. It hasn’t broken me out so I would recommend to anyone with combination/oily skin. I would also recommend using waterproof eyeliner and mascara if you’re using this. 

Secondly I have been loving these hand creams from Mamonde which I also bought from YesStyle for £9.90 each.


I got two fragrances, the Ice Mint Hand Gel Cream which feels really refreshing on your hands and the Cherry Blossom Perfume Hand Cream. Both of these have beautiful packaging, the cream is very hydrating, absorbs quickly and is not sticky or tacky. I was a bit apprehensive about the mint fragrance but it is extremely subtle and smells really fresh. Both creams have the added bonus of having SPF 17 PA+ in them.
