Barkbox – July 2014 Edition

IMG_0002
It’s Barkbox time again! This might be our last for a little while (mostly because Teddy still needs to eat all his snacks from Woofstock).
IMG_0005This month’s theme was “Surf’s Up”.

IMG_0014Fitting perfectly with the them was this shark toy from Harry Barker. The toy had two squeakers but were no match for our little dog.

IMG_0008These Bixbi Daily Essentials Chicken Jerky Treats make the dog go crazy. All of Barkbox’s treat selections have been some of Teddy’s favourite. They tend to be organic and have no filler ingredients such as corn and soy.

IMG_0009There was even a pina colada smoothie! Unfortunately Teddy is allergic to banana so we’ll be giving it to a doggy friend.

IMG_0012A beef pizzle from Superior Farms Pet Provisions will entertain him for hours.

IMG_0015Lastly, these Petsafe dog chews clean teeth and are good for doggy bodies at the same time.

Tony Moly- Egg Pore Shiny Skin Soap

IMG_9185My latest addition to my Tony Moly collection is this Egg Pore Shiny Skin soap. These came in an adorable egg-carton like package.
IMG_9186
The eggs come in white and brown. The white is for day and the brown is for night. There aren’t English instructions on the package and searching online has a few variation of uses. You can use these as normal face soaps (just lather and rinse). However, I like to use them like a mask. I lather and leave them on for 10-15 minutes before washing off. The brown one is a bit stronger so it doesn’t need to be left on as long.

IMG_9191After using them for a month, I have noticed that my pores are a bit smaller, and my skin looks smoother. The soaps are not recommended for sensitive skin as they can be very drying at first. A good moisturiser after washing is a must.

When I first started using these, I broke out a little bit, but that is a result of all the deep dirt coming to the surface. After a while, my skin is looking great. The soaps look like they will last a long time too.

Barkbox- June 2014

IMG_8787
Another month, another Barkbox! I think I’m just as excited as Teddy to see what goodies are inside.

IMG_8793These Healthy Dogma Banana Chips ($7.95) look just like the human kind. They are grain and gluten free. Unfortunately, Teddy is strangely allergic to bananas so we will be giving this to another dog friend. I wish there was an option on Barkbox to mention allergies/sensitivities. Bananas are the only food we’ve ever seen him have a problem with.

IMG_8792The other snack in the box was the Primal Freeze-dried Beef Liver treats ($5). Teddy is absolutely in love with these.

IMG_8791 One of the best part of Barkbox is there careful consideration of quality toys. This frog from Pet Qwerks is so adorable!

IMG_8790By far the best item in this Barkbox was this Baboon butt from Silly Bums ($20). It’s hilariously random but Teddy hasn’t stopped playing with it since. It squeaks and crinkles. It’s more durable than it looks at first glance.

Instagram “Like” Necklace

IMG_9379I saw this adorable necklace the last time I ordered on Photojojo and had been thinking about it ever since. Then one day I gave in and impulsively ordered it.

IMG_9356IMG_9360I love their silly branding of always sending a dinosaur with every package. They even tell you that on the box. Not entirely sure why a little necklace needed a big box though.

IMG_9357IMG_9361The charm itself is a lot bigger than I thought it was in real life and sits on a shiny silver-plated chain. It’s a Photojojo exclusive made by modern jewellery company, Plastique.

IMG_9389It’s been a lovely accessory and conversation starter when meeting new people last week at CMW!

Tony Moly Appletox Honey Cream

IMG_6818
As you know, I’ve been obsessed with the Tony Moly store recently because of their adorable packaging and affordable prices. I recently picked up this moisturiser which came in a container shaped as an apple. It doesn’t have much branding on the outside or much information other than a sticker in Korean at the bottom.

IMG_6819Inside, the cover of the cream did say Tony Moly. It also came with a tiny spatula to prevent contamination of the product by dirty fingers.

IMG_6821The cream itself was yellow, and had a fresh apple smell, which I really enjoy. Upon doing some research, I found out it’s an AHA moisturiser, meaning it also exfoliates the skin. At the time of purchase, I had a giant pimple, but now it is gone and no new ones have appeared since using this product. It does a lovely job of keeping my skin smooth and minimalising wrinkles. A little goes a long way with this cream. I usually just dip the spatula (without scooping) and use what it catches for my face. It will probably last me for a couple of months even if I use it every day.

What other cute cosmetic products do you guys have in your collection? I’d love to know!
