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:
