Panda’s Dream So Cool Eye Stick Review

A cooling eye stick from Tony Moly’s ‘Panda Dream’ Range. Tony Moly is a well known Korean Brand that creates many different beauty products with cute packaging. And as you can see from my posts and from other bloggers, Tony Moly do an exceptional job at producing very cute packaging for their products. There are so many that I want to purchase, just for the packaging. But I have resisted so far with only a couple of Tony Moly products, but not sure for how long that will last before I grab some other products. ^_^ On this occasion, I did purchase the So Cool Eye Stick for the cute packaging. Currently I have been using Simple’s Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll on but thought I needed another one to take with me in my bag.

Price: £4-7 (I purchased mine for £6.69 from a UK seller on ebay, but you can purchase it for £4-5 from a Korean Ebay seller if you can wait for it to be shipped all the way from Korea)

What it does: According to Tony Moly, the stick-type eye product helps provides moisture around the eyes with a cooling effect for when its dry. With ingredients that help with hydration, reducing wrinkle lines and brightens the skin.

Directions (on the box): When your eyes are dry or tired, apply the Stick gently from inside to out and tap lightly with the tip of your finger for better absorption

Ingredients:

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Stearate, Alcohol, Xylitol, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Glycerin, PEG-8, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Either Dimethyl Silane, Niacinamide, Sodium Citrate, Dimethicone, Adenosince, Actinidia Arguta Fruit Extract, Sea Water, Babus Vulgaris Shoot Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Sap Extract, Glacier Water, Potassium Alginate, Methyl Methacrylate, Crosspolymer Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Steareth-20, Caprylyl Glycol 1, 2-Hexanediol, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, N-Hydroxysuccinimide, Chlorhexidine Digluconate, Potassium Sorbate, Chrysin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Tropolone, Fragrance, CI 42090, Phenoxyethanol

Outer Packaging:  The packaging of the eye stick comes in a little see through plastic box with the design being quite basic with just a couple of bamboo imagesDSCN4628 on the front. Around the box there is English written on one of the sides, which is great for users like me who don’t know how to read Korean.  So truthfully I’m not sure what is written on the other side, but I’m assuming that one side would be the same as the English side. The actual eye stick, as you can see is in an adorable panda shape. Isn’t it the cutest? With the little panda smiling on the tube, holding a bamboo leaf. It even has the cute little panda ears. What’s not to love about the packaging.

My view: The great thing about the Panda stick, is it’s very small and lightweight product which makes it easy to carry around in bags for when your eyes feel tired. And personally I felt a bit happy taking a little panda from my bag, though i got a couple of odd looks from people when I took it out in public. Guess they were wondering what it was. lol. The actual balm itself (I call it a balm because it’s like a large lip balm) does have a nice cooling sensation and glides easily when used on the skin which is nice. But the feeling only actual lasts for a few seconds, though it does a great job at keeping my eye moisturized. As for the product saying that it helps with wrinkle lines and brightens the skin, I don’t think any visible signs would be present unless you used the product everyday. Since I only use it when my eyes feel dry and tired, I haven’t seen much difference in the outcome.

Overall I love the product as a whole with the cute packaging and the moisturizing factor, though I actually prefer it without the small inside lid. Personally it’s a hassle to have to take it off when I use it, so I leave mine off all the time (not sure if it keeps it from drying out or not though). Especially when I purchased it, not sure if it was from the buyer or the actual product itself. But when I first opened it, the balm was sticking to the actual inside lid and when I took it off. It yanked the actual balm out of the tube, which was annoying but luckily it went back inside easily. DSCN4637.JPG

In the end, this will be a product that I will repurchase as it’s such a good price for the eye stick and panda packaging. ^_^ And it has a nice cooling sensation without the fragrance being too strong.

Though because I don’t wear any makeup, I’m not sure what the effects are over makeup. So if you’ve tried it over makeup, let me know how it was? Have you tried this product, let me know what you think about it? Would love to hear your thoughts!

Hope your having a lovely day!

Sneak Peek into my Korean Beauty Products

Thought that it was about time to write another post on here. So before I place a proper review post, I decided to let you the readers have a sneak peek at the products that I have. Here are a couple of the products that I’m going to be reviewing, hopefully in a few days when I get to it but currently have a couple of other posts i need to finish . Lol. DSCN4623

Yeah I know, your probably thinking not another person that is talking about Korean beauty products on a blog. But  like most people, I am too one of the many people that have fallen in the trend of trying Korean Beauty products. And let’s just say that the products that i buy are mainly skincare products obviously with the main well known brand such as Tonymoly, the face shop, etude house etc. As you will see from my photos later on throughout this blog,I don’t really wear makeup. Mainly because I’m a noob at makeup so don’t really know how to wear it.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the sneak peek, and look forward to reading my future posts.

Have a great day!

Welcome To Sweet Geek Life!

Hi there and Welcome to The World of Tomorrow!  (sorry Futurama line), I mean Welcome to my Sweet Geek Life Blog!

My name’s Poh (silent ‘H’, so pronounce it Po from the Kung Fu Panda movie) and blogging has always been on my list to do for a while now. But I never knew where to start. So I decided that this year, I would make it one of my resolutions. My 2016 resolutions:

  • To start a blog ( Yeah I know, it’s the 15th January 2016. Great start to the blog right? Well i say better late than never)
  • Lose Weight (Kinda hard when I have so much Sweet goodies that I want to review, yeah just an excuse to munch on some snacks. ^_^)
  • Forget about someone that I had feelings for (That will be for another time, maybe?)

Hope your resolutions are good this year, we shall see if we follow through with them. Hopefully if we do it together, then we can tick them off our checklist. One of them is done for me, so YAY! Feels pretty good to complete one, though hopefully it won’t be one that I will give up.

First of all I’m a Blog Noob and proud of it. I would like to apologize for mistakes that I might make or if i keep changing the theme of the blog. ( There are so many different themes to choose from on here, finding the right one took me an hour)

Anyhoo, before I make this Welcome post a bit longer than it actually means to be. I thought I’d let you, the readers know. This blog will be filled with loads of fun reviews talking about:

  • Beauty skincare products from the UK, Korea etc, 
  • Candy from different places like Japan, America, UK etc
  • Geeky stuff that I just have to tell someone about
  • Random stuff that I will talk about from time to time

I’m gonna finish off here now before I think of other stuff to say and Thank You for reading this long boring post! Hopefully you will check out my other posts when I get to it.

Have a lovely day now!
