[Review] PETITFEE - Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch

PETITFEE Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch - 60 pcs

As we girls and ladies are aging in every minute every second, we not only need to keep-up with the aging process, but to outrun it (if we may). After all, who doesn't want to look young as if 18-years-old? Among all the parts on our face, the eye areas are the ones reflect aging the most. So you definitely want to put more focus there.

To my understanding, two main causes to aging are oxidation and dehydration. During the early stage of aging, especially during the early 20s while your skin still quite tender and soft, try to avoid oil base eye cream as it might be too heavy for your skin to absorb at this age. Hence, water base would be a better choice.

How to feed your skin with more water? If that's your concern, I think you've got what's you're looking for - PETITFEE Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch.

It says, PETITFEE is French for a little fairy

So I've got mine online from my.Althea.kr (check out my online shopping review here : http://sakura-hyoeun21.blogspot.my/2016/04/online-shopping-myaltheakr.html). It costs me RM35 a box. There are 60 pcs in a packing; which means 30 pairs. Literally it only costs me RM1.17 per pair! And that's super-duper-duper cheap.

It is a Korean made product. A small spatula is provided in the package.

It writes, this product "offers your parched skin an intensively hydrating infusion of moisture plus vital nutrients and experience the dramatic firming and cooling results you thought only a professional spa treatment could deliver." WOW

It look something like this while you open the container.
Black shimmering eye patches, just exactly how I imagine the color of black pearl should be like.

The eye patches are quite thin, yet thicker than the usual cotton eye patch available in the market.
It feels like thin-pudding when you touch it.
**Best recommend to chill it in the refrigerator. It should give you a good cooling effect.**

Place it like this on the eye area.
Since it is a hydrogel, it has better attach-ability than usual cotton-type. Few minutes after the liquid essence got absorbed, the hydrogel will stay at its place, like a sticker (not adhesive, of course). What I did was to place it overnight in order to let the skin absorb all the essence, to the max.

On the next morning, if you can still find the patches on your face, you should find the patches became thin like a paper. Gently pat on the eye areas as if a magical touch. Not sure for you, seeing the patches go thin on the next day, it feels so good, feels like all the essence has been absorbed into the skin. In case you can't find it, I suggest you to go back to your bed and search for it heh :D

That's about it. Do lemme know you thoughts about this product review or share your personal review in the comment box below.

[Online Shopping] my.Althea.kr

Hello there! ^^

Today I'm going to share my online shopping experience on another website. my.althea.kr

This website is quite a new one, started from year 2015.

As far as I know, the founder(s) first started to help oversea friends and families to buy Korean beauty products, and send them over. Sooner and later seeing the high demand, the business is established, so as the website.

Well, I'm not very sure about the founder story, but anyway that makes sense, right?
Personally that happens to me. I used to ask my Korean housemate to bring back new K-beauty stuffs once she is travelling back to Korea... and I'm so excited when she brought something back... Especially unboxing it! (sniffing the air enclosed in the box as if I can smell the air caught from Korea! *snap snap* back to the topic, girl)

FYI, the national flower of South Korea is Hibiscus syriacus, and it also known as Althea frutex.
That's basically explains how they got the name.

the home page

The website has a nice and simple concept. No fancy advert. No confusing information. Everything is clear cut and easy to understand.

As it is quite a new page, you may find not much of product choices available yet MORE are coming, I am sure!! The website is expanding, and I can see new products/items are being introduced from time to time.

C'mon lemme show you what I bought from Althea :)

Tigger is trying to help me unbox hahaha

Nice green color for Christmas theme
All items are wrapping tightly and carefully with bubble-type wrapper 

My first order from Althea!

My second parcel from Althea!
(sorry for the low lighting zzz)

Second batch order received safely!
**Please look forward for my individual product reviews in the future! :3**

Herein I wish to mention one incident happen during my second order.
I was scrolling the webpage and wanting to checkout using my cellphone.
However, my payment has failed to due to weak internet connection.
When it automatically brings me back to Althea website, I saw my order was posted yet unpaid.
As I was outside, so I thought to continue the payment when I got home.
Hours later when I get back home, I opened up the browser and it automatically brings me back to the online payment platform (which was failed to load earlier).
Without thinking much, I clicked on the payment.
Nevertheless, when I check again my order status on Althea, it hasn't change after the payment made.
Quickly I sent in my customer report to Althea Helpdesk to ask for help (it was a Saturday).
I am so thankful and happy to receive their reply on the next Monday. So efficient!
The personnel, Daniel, told me that they have manually updated my order status after confirming the payment, and my order is being processed at the moment. (hip hip horray!) :D

On other hand, I have been comparing products offer by Althea with another online shopping website, I find Althea usually offers a lower price. (be a smart shopper, always!)

Meanwhile, Althea provides FREE SHIPPING on orders above RM150! Direct delivery from Korea. (I tracked and traced my parcels all the way from Korea to Malaysia, so I know :D)

So you ask, what if my order is less than RM150?
The shipping fee for per order will be calculated automatically based on the mailing address (distance) before you proceed to payment.

As for me, it costs me RM35 per shipment, from Korea to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
I find it quite reasonable, but as for me, I would try to accumulate my orders until it exceed RM150 in order to get FREE SHIPPING! (why not heh)

Well. That's basically my personal encounters with Althea, and I am above satisfactions.

Hope this is informative enough for you if you're looking for a review for Althea online shopping website. :)
