Geo Coloured Lenses: Geo Crazy Lens SF-35 Review

Hello guys, December was a very hectic month because after my birthday last 19th, we had to go to my grandparents' place to spend the holidays. 2016 has been a good year to me and I am grateful to have the chance to review a lot of lenses from Geo Coloured Lenses. Seriously, they are the best and kindest out there! I'd recommend them to you anytime and I will guarantee more than satisfaction. Anyway, the lenses I chose this time were GEO ANIMATION SF-35

( Also, Please Buy Me Coffee if you want ❤ )

Here are it's details:

Price: $36.90 = $24.90!
Lens Code: SF-35
Diameter: 14.2 mm
Water Content: 40±2%
Base Curve: 8.60 mm
Usage: 1 year disposal 
Prescription: -0.00 / Plano Only
Includes: 1 pair of lenses + lens case 

Geo Lenses offers free shipping worldwide on all orders. It usually takes about a month to get to the Philippines because it really is terrible here especially if you're not from Luzon but I do know that parcels arrive faster in other countries. 

The usual package contains your choice of lens/es, free lens cases, their information card and safety brochure all sealed in a plastic. The lenses are also covered in foam to protect them and prevent them from breaking.

Color and Design: (5/5) ★★★★★
I really like this shade of green. Of course, they would not look natural but they are perfect for cosplay and theatrical makeup.

Comfort: (5/5) ★★★★★
These lenses are super comfortable and do not irritate my eyes. I might be used to wearing and inserting lenses but there are lenses that still sting the first time I put them on. This wasn't the case in these lenses since it also feels natural and as if I was not wearing lenses in the first place!

Enlargement: (3/5) ★★★★★ 
These lenses have a diameter of 14.2mm. They hardly enlarge your eyes but the effect created from the pigmentation makes up for everything.
These are one of the best lenses to ever exist! They are very pigmented, clear, have a great diameter and are very eye-catching

Visibility of Effect: (5/5) ★★★★★ 
These lenses stand out even from afar and in any lighting. With these, you wont have to worry if your lenses can show a change in color. It even works for any eye color because it is so pigmented.

Overall: (4.5/5) ★★★★★

Bokksu Subscription Box Review

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be introducing a special  Monthly Japanese Subscription Box called Bokksu. Nowadays, there are just too many boxes to choose from. What distinguishes Bokksu from the rest is that they offer authentic traditional and modern Japanese snacks instead of just random candies you can see in Japanese grocery stores. Each month, they carefully choose a unique theme that lets you experience the Japanese culture with 18-20 snacks and teas for only $39 ( and $19 for tasting boxes ) both with free 2 day shipping fee in the US.

Here are its contents! 

This was their November 2016 Box and its theme was Japanese Folklore. It actually arrived even before I arrived in the US and had the chance to pick it up myself. The shipping was SOOO FAST, it only took 2 days!! Most boxes take around 2-4 weeks to arrive so I was not ready. Luckily, I addressed it to my aunt and she picked it up for me even if I was supposed to be there on the last week of November. 

The first thing I saw when I opened the box was their Tasting Guide that had the cover and theme of the month. The box was filled with lots of snacks and t really made me so excited!! 

(Hakata Mentai Shrimp Senbei) 

The first thing I tried were these Senbei crackers. I have seen these make appearances in Japanese anime and shows and I know that Japanese people have been eating these since their early days. I was really looking forward to trying them. They were crunchy and really tasted like shrimp with a slightly salty and savory taste. The only word I could think to describe it was "umami" which means flavorful here in (Southeast) Asia. 

(Kumamon Cookie)

The next thing I tried were these adorable Kumamon cookies. I know a lot of people are familiar with this mascot from Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan. Seeing cookies shaped like it really made me squeal! I immediately opened a pack and tried them myself. 
The light-colored one is butter flavored and it had the perfect mixture of sweetness and saltiness in it. The brown cookie was chocolate flavored but not too sweet so it could have been dark chocolate. 

(Saku Saku Panda)

These cookies are very sweet and delicious. They are decorated with both white and milk chocolates and shaped into pandas. I've had the pleasure of sampling these cookies in another box before but boi, these weren't melted! The box had literally been unopened for almost a month and these were still in a good condition. I could still even see the various faces of the pandas inside. awwwww 

(Dream Animals Butter Flavored Biscuits) 

These are really cute! There are several animal biscuits inside with their names in English. I think it is a great way to educate young children in Japan and make them fluent in English. The biscuits had a really strong salty butter flavor that makes you want to eat more with each bite. I even had to drink a glass of water to stop myself from finishing the whole box!

(Kitsune's Tail)

This snack really intrigued me as I was not expecting pastry to come in a subscription box. Kitsune's Tail or literally, Fox's Tail, is a flaky pie topped with maple white chocolate. It was very light, delicious and had a perfect balance of flavors in it. The sweetness of the icing really complemented the slightly salty but plain dough. Someday, I'd love to get my hands on more of these.

( Organic Sencha Green Tea )

Lastly, we have this Japanese Green Tea. All Bokksu boxes comes with a unique tea to complement all the snacks you got. I've always wanted to try drinking authentic ones so it had been a very pleasant experience. It is best served at 80C to enjoy its flavor.  They gave 3 packs but I used one already so only 2 are in this photo. If you enjoyed everything you saw, I definitely recommend subscribing for their next box 

That's all for the stuff they sent me. Don't forget to check their sites below:

Actual Photos

                                   (without flash)                                                 (with flash)

This is how the wig looks in real life. The left is the one without flash while the left is with flash. Honestly, there isn't much difference between them. That goes to show how excellent this wig really is! Since the wig is 120cm long, it easily tangles. However, this wig is extra smooth and silky so you can fix it in a few minutes.

This is how the top and inside of the wig looks like. Sadly, the top is quite messy. It's not like other wigs where it has one clear origin where the strands are connected. It looks rather pasted but aside from it, it's ok. The inner of the wig is absolutely beautiful tho! The lace is adjustable to fit the size of your head and the clip-on has a strong grip! There was also a tag attached to it.

 Here's the picture when worn.


Color: (5/5) 
The wig looks exactly like the stock photo. It had the same color, hue, brightness and even length. It really is so perfect for Shiro and I believe that this one is the best one there is.  

Shine: (5/5) ★ 
The wig is not that shiny. It has the right amount of shine that prevents it from looking too cheap ,irritating ,dull and boring. The tips of the hair has a beautiful rainbow gradient. It looks absolutely colorful but the colors are well mixed in. 

Texture: (5/5) 
. The wig is super smooth, and very manageable. You can easily run your fingers through their strands. The wig has a good volume. In fact, it is quite heavy even without the clip-ons attached. It barely shreds but even if it did, it's so thick! 

Price: (5/5) ★+
For a wig like this, I think it is very worth the price. Most wigs like these would cost twice or trice more without shipping. I'd definitely chose this over anything else!

Overall: (5/5) 
This is the best Shiro wig ever! I'm not exaggerating because I have seen other kinds both online and in real life. Some wigs have less colors and even no clip on while others have too harsh and intense colors. If you want to look your best, I suggest that you choose this!

Japan Candy Box: Review+ GIVEAWAY (Ended)

Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be reviewing another subscription box especially because this one is full of food ❤ !! Also, take note that THERE IS A GIVEAWAY AT THE END OF THIS POST. This time, I am opening , Japan Candy Box , a monthly subscription-based box filled with 8-10 different candies and snacks from Japan for the low price of $18.20 a month. They sent me their September box and these were all the contents inside: 

( Also, Please Buy Me Coffee if you want ❤ )

September's Japan Candy Box contained 10 candies and snacks, in which , two of them are DIY kits. How exciting!!! I could feel my mouth drool.

Anyway, this is how their box looks like. Just don't mind how tattered it is. It's all because of the terrible service in my country. If you notice from all my other reviews, all boxes will come like this T^T.  It makes me jealous of those who live in other countries because their box will be in top condition. 

The first thing you will see inside the box is a thank you note with their logo printed. The contents were even wrapped in special paper to keep the contents a surprise. HAHAHAHA I finally learned how to open these types of boxes >:D. The last time I opened a box, particularly their Kawaii Box, I did it very wrongly and I was seriously quite ashamed of my ignorance >///<. 

Information about the contents of the box can be seen in the back side of the Thank you card. Thankfully, they listed their names so you can have an idea on what they are. This really helped me a lot since I wasn't sure if some of the contents were gum or chewing candy. Although if you were to ask my opinion, I think including a small picture of the product would have helped a lot more.

Ok i was really nice of them to include 2 DIY Kits (finish reading everything to reach the other xD) since I too, have been wanting to try one of these for years! There were plastic mold and a palette to mix the coloring in. I'm so excited and I want to make a video making this with a friend or two. Basically, you are to your own soda flavored gummy animals and paint them with any color of your choice! 

(left: Tohato Caramel Corn ; right: Calbee Vegetable Snacks )

The Caramel Corn was really delicious! It had the perfect balance of sweetness that had me wanting seconds. Upon finishing it, I realized that there were nuts mixed with it! The Vegetable Snacks, on the other hand, was very tasty and lightly seasoned. You can tell that there is a difference between the 3 colors of "chips" available in the bag.

The one on the left was really sour but with a sweet aftertaste. I swear my face must have been so wrinkled but I was still wanting more and more of it. The one on the right is one of my favorites! It is super convenient and I could just pop one or two candies every now and then. It comes in 3 flavors: green apple, orange and grapes.

The Pokemon Candy actually comes in 5 varieties : pineapple(pikachu), melon, cola, soda (Greninja) and grape. I got the soda flavor and honestly, I didn't like it. I wonder how the other flavors tastes like and what Pokemon is on their covers. I just read their post about the contents of the September box and it says that one out of these 3 grape gums was sour. What the heck! That means I got the bad one right off the bat! I thought these things were nasty so I threw them away but now I regret it.

( left: Gummies ; right: Doraemon Ramune Squash Soda Bubble Gum )

Something else was pictured in their box post so I have no clue what the gums on the left side are called but they were delicious! The Doraemon Bubble Gum had adorable wrappers with different colors and drawings. I kept the wrappers because they are just so beautiful ! ❤o❤ 

The last DIY Kit enables you to create your own octopus eggs. Again, I am going to try this with my friends someday. This is the instructions their site gave:

"Mix two different liquids in two separate dishes, and by using the squeezy octopus dropper, suck in the liquid and drop the eggs in the other candy liquid by squeezing the octopus!

Now for the moment you've been waiting for! :D 
Japan Candy Box and I have teamed up to make this giveaway possible! Enter below for a chance to win your very own box!
