I ordered these from Koreadepart a while ago, and I thought I would write a Review on those first ^^

Watch my live documentation of my struggle with these xD

While putting them on:

I don't know if you can see it but on the other side of the patches, there's a plastic cover that you can pull off.
Under it is the side that you stick on your skin, which feels very~ much like jelly o.o
The patches are not very stiff, so they fit perfectly onto your skin. A bad point about this though: it's really~ difficult to position the patch on your back when you don't have anyone to help you.

 As you can see here, it's supposed to stay on your lower back, in the middle...but when you have to put it on by yourself it's almost impossible to do that xD

The feeling is kind of weird, i would have expected the patches to warm up to help reduce the pain but  instead they felt icy cold at first. They also feel kind of..wet? It feels really weird to touch the surface of them, because it is perfectly dry so there won't be anyting getting on your clothes, but you still feel like the patch is kind of wettened. 

After the first 5 minutes: no difference at all, the place where the patches stick on just feels kind of cool...which is bad, i already felt like i'm getting a cold anyways and having cold patches on my waist area just makes me sneeze more than i already do T.T
They're not really heating up like I thought they would.

After 10-15 minutes: Still no difference at all. I don't know how they're supposed to work anyways, apparently there are herbs in them that should help reduce the pain but I don't know how that should work since you're just sticking the patches on your skin o.o
A good thing about them is that they stick on very well, due to the soft and jelly-like texture of them. It also feels quiet funny when you bend down or do anything that is not standing/sitting up straight. Imagine having a thin layer of jelly on your stomach. Feels super funny.

After roughly 1 1/2 hours:  I take everything back I said about them sticking on very well, or the patches feeling cool. They made my skin feel super itchy and almost fell off many times. I don't know if it's because I keep trying to concentrate on if I can feel any pain due to the patches or if it is because of the patches themselves, but I feel worse than usual. I took them off now , even though the max. time to wear those is 8 hours.

Much text, not that many pictures...sorry about that everyone. I used those in a hurry, so I wasn't able to do a really proper review on them.
Did anyone else ever try them? Do they always feel weird or is it just me? o.o


Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar Review

Yay for another review of the things I bought in Korea (somehow I didn't get myself to write a review of the things I bought on Koreadepart yet. Sorry~ )

Price: 4,68$ on Koreadepart
Amount: 2g

Its promises:

" -Formulated with vitamin E, berry complex
                                                               -Provides moisture and nutrition for skin
                                                                     -Soft and creamy texture
                                                                        -Sweet fruits scent"

It also has a nice and short instruction on how to use it:

"Apply it to your lips"

I would have never guessed that :o

See that fine line under the writing? Twist it and the bar goes upwards~ 
This will make you get the product without any problem ^^

I actually don't even know which colour I have o.o
When I bought it, I just got it like that without a packaging or anything, and the bunny face looks different than those shown on Koreadepart. Judging from the colour of the packaging it looks like No.3, Juicy Apple...but it tastes more like Juicy Cherry so I think I have that one? ^^'

Swatched on the back of my hand it looks like this:

Without Flash
With Flash

It looks really~ pink but the colour doesn't come off as strong on my lips.

Bare lips: 

Dry lips, yay xD
                   Also that weird spot on my lower lip is not a pimple or anything, it's just a spot that's randomly darker than the rest of my lips ^^''

With Tony Moly's Petite Bunny gloss bar:

It looks really~ glossy here, but that effect fades after a few minutes and the lips will look really natural.
It's really not super pigmented, but that's what I like about it. ^^

Why yes, how it tastes IS something important to me xD
After all, I'm putting this on my lips, aren't I?
Anways~ like I said before it does taste like Cherry (kind of), and very fruity~  and I love it :D
Yummy Yummy Yummy~

"Soft and creamy texture" definitely fits it. 
It just glides over your lips, you don't have to apply any pressure on it to get a nice result.
And with saying that, I mean never apply any unnecessary pressure on it.
I did it once, and I broke of a corner of it with that T.T Clumsy me strikes again~

Anyways, it feels very nice on your lips and hydrates them well. No need to use lip balm or anything before applying it, the texture is very similiar to a lip balm anyways. I think you could compare it with a tinted lip balm, with a slightly~ glossy/shiny finish ^^

5/5 Stars :D


Taobao Haul + Yoybuy Review

A few days ago Jennys and mine package from Taobao finally arrived~ Well technically it was not from Taobao but from Yoybuy. Confused? :D
The things I bought~

For those of you who never heard of Taobao before, it's basically the Chinese Ebay. But you might as well call it "the wonderland where you'll find everything you want for super cheap", because that's what it is. There's soo~ much cute stuff on it. As well as fake stuff, but that's awesome too.
Just like on Ebay, there are many different sellers. And the whole website is in Chinese. So for all of us who do not speak Chinese, the first question to appear in our mind after discovering amazingly cute items on it is: " how do I buy this and get this to my home?"
It was the same for us. After navigating through the website for a while, it seemed as if there's no possibility of getting the stuff delievered to you if you live outside of China. If you're able to register and buy things, that is. But I knew that a friend of mine, also living in Germany, did buy things from Taobao before. After asking her she told me that she's asking a friend of her in China to buy her things and send them to her.
We were quite disappointed after hearing that, because we really~ wanted to have those things. Germany barely has any cute stuff and Taobao has so much of it T.T

It took us a few days to get the final idea of just searching on Google for ways to order from Taobao.
Stupid, aren't we? xD
Anways, if you google something like "how to buy from Taobao" you'll find many different so-called "Taobao services". We decided to settle with one service one of our friends also used, Yoybuy . They also translate the names of the items on Taobao, and you can also search for something in English on that website.
If you already found the things you want on Taobao, you simply copy the url into the search panel on Yoybuy and then add the items to your cart. Their service is super simple, easy to understand and quite fast. Our items have been shipped out 1 day after paying for the shipping fee.'s super expensive.
We paid about 100$ for the things we bought ...and about 80$ for the shipping/service fee. The service fee is only 10% of the price you're paying for the items themselves, and even though the shipping was done with EMS I doubt that it's really that expensive normally. Unfortunately, it's impossible to find any cheaper Taobao service. They're all really expensive T.T
And~ the package got stuck in customs as well -.- Due to some "missing information" on the package. So we had to pay another 60-something $ for that.
If you ever order from Taobao, no matter with which service...expect to pay at least twice the price of the actual items.

At least they packed everything really neatly, there was not even an inch of space wasted :D
Looots of bubble wrap

Fragile things were securely packed.

Chaos~ enough of that.
Onto the cute stuff, yay~~~~~~~~~~~~
