Everything in my box!

Pure Smile Black Mineral Essence Mask. I got the Brown Sugar variant of this hydrating sheet mask! It contains a combination of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and minerals which helps nourish the skin and shrink pores. The sheet mask itself is made with bamboo and activated charcoal. Like regular sheet masks, it’s meant to be left on your face for 15-20 minutes. You can also pat the remaining essence on your skin for maximum absorption. I love it because it gave my skin an instant boost of hydration!

Naive Face Wash. This face wash smells like peaches! It’s made with plant-based ingredients, like squalene, that are all gentle on the skin. It creates a rich lather, making my skin feel clean and smooth after use. Compared to other face washes, it doesn’t make my skin dry. It doesn’t cause redness either.

Hatomugi Face Mist. It’s a hydrating face mist formulated with antioxidant-rich barley seed extract. This is a good product for those who have dry skin. It’s easy to use, all you have to do is spritz it on your face and you’re good to go. I love that it doesn’t make my skin oily and that I can also wear makeup on top of it!

Honey Soap. Real honey essence and royal jelly extract were combined in this bar soap that promises to hydrate even the driest of skin.

This bar soap smells so good and creates a nice lather, especially when you use a bath puff or a loofah. It can be used all over the body, keeping the skin moisturized and refreshed. It has no harsh scents, unlike other bath soaps!

DIY Sheet Masks. This pack has 10 folded dry sheets. You can add your favorite toner to it to make your own sheet mask!

The back of the pack has instructions on how to make your own sheet mask. The instructions are in Japanese, but there are photos that are easy to follow.

The pack includes a plastic tray where you can do the DIY sheet mask without any mess.

Color Hair Chalk. Here’s a temporary hair color chalk, perfect for parties or when you just want to spruce things up a bit!

The kit comes with a pan of purple hair color chalk with a sponge and a case. You just have to slide your hair between the chalk and the sponge and voila, you now have a new hair color!

Brush. According to the card, this brush is made for cleaning the skin on your nose area and removing dirt, sebum, blackheads and makeup residue.

The handle is made of plastic. It’s also pretty easy to grip.

The bristles are gentle on the skin!

This looks just like an ordinary makeup brush, but it’s actually made for cleansing!

Lip Color. For the lips, I have a lip palette with 4 gorgeous shades from pink to red!

The palette is compact and portable!

This lip palette is made in China and designed in Japan.

I wish there’s a brush but it didn’t include any. Still, it’s a great palette because all the lip colors apply smoothly.

The shades are all lovely. I love the reddest one, it gives my lips a nice pop of color!

Eyebrow Powder. Of course, there’s also something for the eyes, an eyebrow powder palette!

There are 4 different eyebrow colors, from light to dark.

There’s also an eyebrow stencil included in the kit.

The palette comes with a brush that makes it easy for me to apply the eyebrow powder.

The formula is smooth, buttery, and blendable!

With Kira Kira Crate, I get to try different Asian beauty products every month. Many of these products are new to me and aren’t readily available in local stores. This month, I love the peach-scented face wash and the moisturizing mist. Both are great for my dry skin. The honey soap is promising, and the rest of the items are also usable. They always make sure that the number of skincare and makeup products in each box are balanced and I think it’s a great way to curate this box!
