Online Shopping: EdenFantasys

Please note: This post is intended for those over the age of 18. 
Hey Guys,

I was recently given the opportunity to write about a online company - EdenFantasys.
EdenFantasys sells pretty much everything from your adult bedroom accessories and attire all the way to lip balms and bath bubbles. From brands like Cake beauty (❤) and EOS. You are even able to find some sexy Halloween costumes. Speaking of which I really should start thinking about my costume this year or I'll leave it to last minute as usual. I can't be Strom from X-Men 5 years straight.

EdenFantasy even has an active and friendly community group with event, review and video posts.
They even offer worldwide shipping and seem to always have great Facebook promotions.

About the company:

EdenFantasys.com invites you to learn from others, share your experiences and re-discover sex. We offer online shopping you can trust, a welcoming community and a wealth of inspiring resources.
At EdenFantasys.com you'll find:
A wide selection of products

It's easy for you to find what you need.

Find several products and use our unique "compare" function to see how they stack up against each other. We'll even tell you if there are similar products made from better materials. Add or remove choices easily to your shopping cart with one click or put them on your wish list for later purchase. 


Here are just a few items that caught my eye from their site:
 Ever since my trip to Italy I've had a think for masks.

Glossybox Japan: WWD Edition


 
A short while ago Glossybox Japan announced a special WWD collaboration box that would be available for the month of July. At the time I wasn't familiar with WWD but I figured any kind of collaboration box with Glossybox Japan would be a hit. From what I gather WWD is a weekly Japanese fashion newspaper. So how could I lose?
The special was a bit more than the regular box at ¥2100 and took a little bit of effort to reserve. You had to find clues and then watch a youtube video that revealed a secret code. It was a fun and interactive way to order a Glossybox.

Now on to the box:
First off, check out how packed this box is, it look like it's about to blow. 
Notice the tape as reinforcement.
 Look at how lovely the pale yellow box is!
A look at what's inside:
Sabon Body Scrub - Patchouli lavender vanilla
Cruelty-free. I'm looking forward to this. I've heard many good things about Sabon.
GMDANSU - Hanban beauty set
- Handmade soap and Ampoule
I'm not sure what the deer velvet ampoule is yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out soon enough. 
Hanapirka - Bath and cream sample set
Rebeage - Orgranic white honey body cream
Sounds and smells おいしい!!
Welda - Pomegranate Oil
Cruelty-free and a brand I've been meaning to try for a while now. I love pomegranate!
rinRen - Shampoo and treatment trail set
I'm always on the look out for new shampoo's and conditioners so I'll be giving these a whirl.

Final thoughts:
It's a great box with lots of different products to try out. I'm really happy to see more Japanese brands this time around too!
I look forward to seeing what else Glossybox has in store! :)

How was your Glossybox this month?

Review: Steamcream


Thanks to Canadian Beauty Reviews, I was introduced to Steamcream. After seeing how adorable the packaging was, I had to learn more. After doing a bit of research I decided to take the plunge and order a couple of tins. I also received a sample* for review.

What is Steamcream?
"STEAMCREAM represents the latest concept in skincare. Freshly handmade using high-quality, natural ingredients that are fused together by a shot of steam. This unique method makes the cream very lightweight, providing long-lasting hydration for the face. The texture also makes it a perfect nourishing treat for your body and hands too.
STEAMCREAM is handmade in the UK and Japan with fresh, traceable ingredients. It’s super-moisturizing, sinks deep down instantly and revives your skin straight away. It makes your skin simply the best it can be, naturally."
顔、手、身体の部位を選ばず、ひとつで全身にお使いいただける保湿クリームです。トレーサビリティが管理された天然成分をもとに、スチームを使って乳化させるというユニークな製法で手づくりしました。
I have really dehydrated skin. Now before you say it - I drink water! I drinks lots of water. I drink Aloe juice, tea, regular water, etc. You name it, I drink it. I drink so much liquid that I end up having to use the washroom every 5 minutes.
Oh, hang on a sec.. Gotta go!
....
Okay, I'm back.
So, because my skin is so dry I end up making my own shea butter mixture, which is wonderful in winter but can be a bit heavy in summer. I was a bit skeptical of Steamcream as I've tried many, MANY different creams in the past but they don't moisturize my face adequetly. Imagine my surprise when my face felt soft and supple after one application of Steamcream. スゴイ! I love it! It has a wonderful lavender smell with a light hint of cocoa butter, packaged in a beautiful and collectible tin.



There are so many tins to choose from both in the UK and Japan.
Here are some limited edition tins I really want from the Japanese website -

I was lucky as I liked everything I received, except for perhaps one of the accessories.

So would I purchased another Happy if the opportunity presented iteself?
Hells ya!! It's a pretty good deal for about $35, (Canadian), plus free shipping.

Japanese Magazines: E-Mook Edition

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to share with you my recent e-mook purchases.

What is an e-mook?
"The e-mook has become all the rage in Japan. An enhanced version of a mook (cross between a magazine and a book), the e-mook, published by Takarajimasha, expands the hybrid concept a step further by including a premium gift inserted in a box attached to every mook. Typically focused on a single trendy fashion label, e-mooks are brand specific, containing articles about the designer, manufacturing process, celebrity customers and a catalog of the latest collection."
Source

Simply put - You buy the book to get the gift.
They usually range from  ¥1200 - ¥1800
Here's this months purchase:


 I've been wanting to try Koh Gen Do for some time now but didn't know what product to try first. So when I found out there was a Koh Gen Do e-mook coming out in July I was excited. The only downside is there was quite a few foundation samples, which I don't think I'll be able to use.


I'm not very familiar with Paul & Joe, but I thought the bags included were so cute!








I just hope I don't start collecting too many e-mooks :S

What do you think of e-mooks?

Review: We Are Faux


I love false lashes. Unfortunately, I don't wear them often enough ... but, what I like about false lashes is that they can add a bit of glamor, or umph to any look.
Today I would like to introduce you to dramatic lashes from We Are Faux. We Are Faux carries a variety of different styles to suit everyone's needs. They also ship WORLDWIDE!
About We Are Faux:
"Daring and seductive with a touch of backstage glamour. An exquisite range of handcrafted lashes. Created by international makeup artist Ana Cruzalegui. Inspired by fashion, music and art trends. Translated into seasonal lash-wear. From minimal to maximal, fierce to feminine.

WE ARE FAUX."

The only downside is that they don't come with their own glue. Which isn't a big deal breaker for me as I tend to always have my own glue but, for some, I know that can be a bit of an issue.
Correction! - They do come with glue. So not to worry, you can use your favorite glue or the one that is included with your new lovely pair of lashes!

I received 3 pairs of lashes from We Are Faux which came packaged in a very cute black velvet-like pouch. The pouch is hand made by a women in Peru.

Bewitching:


Rubia:


And Good Girl:



For this review I'm wearing Bewitching. I'm not an expert when it comes to putting on or wearing false lashes. But I got to give it to myself for putting these on in less than 10 minutes :)




I really like these lashes. They're fun, playful and really add a bit of sparkle to my eyes. These will not be something I'd wear at my school but, for going out with friends, this will definitely be my go to pair.

As always, thanks for reading and stay tuned for an upcoming We Are Faux giveaway!
