Koreadepart Skincare & Cosmetics Haul

About two weeks ago, a friend and I decided to order some things from Koreadepart because we discovered so much more awesome products (judging from reviews on other blogs) that we didn't buy in Korea. The package finally arrived on Tuesday and wow~ Koreadepart really is fast.
For those of you who don't know Koreadepart, here's a short description of the online shop:
Koreadepart sells all kinds of Korean skincare, cosmetics, even some food and clothes. They have a big~ selection of various brands such as Etude House, The Face Shop and others. When ordering, you have to send two payments:  -One directly after ordering (=price of the items)
                               -Another one after they bought all items and weighed the package (=shipping price)
All in all, the process took less than two weeks for us. Including shipping. Our package was sent with EMS, so we were also able to track our package. There weren't any cheaper options for shipping to Europe, but since we ordered together the shipping came out quite cheap for us (only 15€ for each).

Now to the interesting part:

This is what I spent my money on:

All in all I ordered 10 items (one was Tony Moly's Egg Pore Tightening Egg for my sister, which is not included in the picture) and it cost me about 50€ if I remember it right.

Tony Moly:

Cat Chu Lip Tint (Red)
Egg Pore Blackhead Out Oil
Panda's Dream Good-bye Dark Eye Corrector

Etude House:

Milk Tea Cleansing Cream
Wonderpore Freshner
Oh My God It's That Time Again Heat Patch


Good Afternoon Peach&Cinammon Tea BB Cream

Nature Republic :

Green Tea Sheet Mask (5 pcs)
Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

And those are the samples I got:

I will do a review of all of those when I have more time ^^ And the weather is better...right now the lightning sucks 90% of the day, that's why the pictures look kind of crappy. Sorry about that T^T

If there's anything you would like me to review first, just tell me in the comments below ^^

Tony Moly Tea Tree Cleansing Cream Review

I bought this cleansing cream when I was in Korea for the simple reason that it was cheap. It was sold for 2900 won which is about 2,90$ .
I only started using this after I came back to Germany, so here's a small review.

"The brilliant cleansing care system brings
 strong vital power of fresh 3 seeds with dewy water"

The tube contains 150ml of cleansing cream, but if you use it every morning and evening it will be used up quickly. I've been using it continuesly for about 2 weeks and it's already a little difficult to squeeze the cream out.

[Edit: I have been using it for 2 1/2 months now and there's still cream in it, so actually it does last for a long time~ ^^]

After using it a few times only

After 2 weeks
"[Directions] Apply an appropriate amount to the entire face, and gently massage to wash away impurities from the skin. Wipe off with a tissue or rinse off with lukewarm water."

I use about 3-4 times of this amount whenever i use the cleansing cream to clean my whole face. The cream looks almost white, or like a really bright lime green. It has a very fresh smell, not sweet at all. I'm not sure whether it smells like tea tree seeds or not, but it definitely does remind me of trees and nature ^^

After massaging the cream into the face for a short moment, there will be almost no rest of the cream visibly. Even after washing the cream off, my skin will still feel normal which is a great plus for me. My skin's very sensitive, so even when I'm using products described as "mild" or "great for sensitive skin" my skin still gets irritated.

After washing the cleansing cream off, my face usually feels very refreshed and clean, but I still prefer cleansing foams as my face feels even cleaner after using those. It's still a great product though, especially for that price.

I don't wear make-up that often, but for those of you who do I did a small test on how well this cleansing cream removes make-up:

Tested: Make-up base, eyeliner, eyeshadow

The cleansing cream turns into a greyish colour

After washing the cleansing cream off
As you can see, it does remove most of the make-up but the eyeliner is still visible. I think if you're not wearing heavy make-up, only using this cleansing cream will work. I would still recommend using a real make-up remover before using the cleansing cream.


Tony Moly Peach Anti-Aging Hand Cream Review

When I was in Korea in August/September I bought some Korean skincare/cosmetic items there as well. One brand I bought a lot~ of items from was Tony Moly. Even though we only went there once ^^''
Anyways, some of their items have a really cute packaging, and so does this hand cream. I bought it because  I really love peaches, but I didn't know it was an Anti-Aging hand cream...I guess I'm already using Anti-Aging products as an 18-years-old then. Apparently it's also has an whitening effect.

This is what the packaging looks like, it's just a big peach basically:


It contains 30g of hand cream and you can get it in Korea for 4500won, which is 4,5$. You could also order it from Yesstyle for about 14$ or from Koreadepart for 4,68$

When you open it, you can see that the product is safely sealed with a plastic lid which keeps it from spilling. It survived the flight from Korea to Germany without any problem ^^

The lid is very easy to remove and after you did so you can directly get the hand cream. The only thing that bothers me is that you have to take out the product with your finger (or a plastic spoon or something else, but I'm always to lazy to search for those xD), so it's not really that hygienic.
Anways, back to the hand cream itself.

The texture is a little thick but very smooth. The cream itself has a creamy colour and a strong smell of peaches.  So if you don't love the smell of peaches, i don't think you would like this hand creme.The smell is very sweet but doesn't smell super natural unfortunately. The cream absorbs quickly into the skin and your hands will feel soft after that and not sticky at all.

That's the amount of creme I use normally.

 Unfortunately after the cream absorbed into your hands, the sweet smell will fade quickly as well. T^T Also it doesn't moisturize too well, my hands feel a little dry again after 1-2 hours.

I can't really say much about the effectiveness of the hand cream as you can't see a difference directly after using it for the first time and since the packaging is not really something you would take with you in your bag when you go out, I don't remember to use this too often. I try to apply it at least once in the evening though, but I'm fogetting it quite a lot. If you're using this product every day I guess it will last 1-2 months.
