Circle Lenses Review- Big Candy Red (@Mukuchu)

I’m here to bring you my first sponsored lenses review. These were sent to me by mukuCHU circle lenses! 
I will be reviewing the red lenses in the Big Candy series. (G-205) 

POWER/PRESCRIPTION: 0.00 (Plano) to -10.00

LENS USAGE: UP TO 1 YEAR
SHELF LIFE: 3 YEARS
MANUFACTURER / ORIGIN: SOUTH KOREA
MATERIALS: 2Hema
B.C.: 8.6mm
DIAMETER: 14.50mm 
WATER CONTENT: 38%

I was really excited to get these because these were the lenses I was going to use for my Black Gold Saw cosplay! I’ve used Animation lenses before (for my Suiseiseki cosplay) but I wasn’t really looking forward to having bright red eyes again. (Animation lenses were uncomfortable and made my eyes really light sensitive.) 
I chose to review this pair because of the size (never tried 14.5mm before!) and the colour, which looked more like a blendy red than a bright red.
(Lighting made the one on the right appear lighter.)
No flash, natural light, no makeup.
 The red isn’t really as noticeable, but the black ring definitely is! I wasn’t really used to such large lenses so I stared at my eyes in the mirror for like, 5 minutes! Ha!

No lenses, no makeup.
Natural light. (Photo taken by window.)
Comparison- with and without lenses.
Natural light.
The red looks more like a blendy brown in natural light.
Left: Natural light
Right: Artificial light (taken by a lamp.)
The red is much more noticeable in artificial light.
Both lenses in, natural light.
LOL CREEPY STARING SHOT! – Natural light.
Even with my eyes wide open, these lenses are really really big!
Natural light.
Left eye with makeup, right eye without makeup.
In most of my photos, the colour looks brown. 
However, this photo probably demonstrates the best what the real colour is!
Here are some pictures with full makeup on, to give an idea of what the lenses look like.
(Evil look, hehe ;3)
These lenses definitely help achieve the big eyed/ doe-eyed / moe look! 
So, the review!

Design: 8.7/10
I love the spikey design! I wish that the colour was more red though, instead of being a red-brown colour.

Comfort: 9.5/10
These lenses are so confortable! Despite being really big, they didn’t really try my eyes out and I couldn’t feel them when I put them in! EOS definitely makes very comfortable lenses. 

Enlargement: 10/10
Wow, these lenses definitely enlarge! Despite being 14.5mm, these lenses made my eyes feel really really big. This is my first time trying 14.5mm lenses, and I couldn’t stop staring in the mirror! It was kind of weird at first, but I got used to it.  These eyes definitely help achieve the moe-eyes look! I can only tolerate the big eyes when I have makeup on, or else I look like an alien haha!

Packages! + Dead Master

Hello everyone! 
Today I when I came back home from school, I was welcomed with two very pleasant surprises! They were slips from the post office saying that I had to pick up two of my packages!  I didn’t really know what they were so I was pretty excited. 
The post lady gave me two boxes – one that was big and another that was relatively small. 
The smaller one was the Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream that I ordered! I was very keen on trying BB Cream after hearing other beauty bloggers/vloggers rave on about how amazing it was. This was recommended to me by Chelsi! (Check out her blog~!) I’ll do a review on it soon, hopefully this weekend.
I didn’t really know what was in the bigger package. When I opened it, I saw…
THIS!
My Dead Master 1/8 Animation figure! UNF UNF UNF

Dead Master is one of the evil characters in the Black Rock Shooter OVA. I became obsessed with Black Rock Shooter over the summer when Ringo and I started watching it!  (I got especially obsessed with Black Gold Saw, hehe β™₯) Anyway, I originally didn’t like Dead Master because I thought she was annoying and didn’t really like her design. Jean told me to wait because β€œDead Master grows on you.” Haha, she couldn’t be more right! I started to feel more attached to her character.
This is the first statue that I own, that I’ve bought myself. I got a Suzumiya Haruhi statue from a friend about 3 years ago as a gift but it’s not nearly as epic as DEAD MASTER~ 
Here are some close ups! 
(LOL shut up I realized the skull wasn’t on properly until after I took the photo >_>)
Such a blank dead expression β™₯
O hi derr. :3
β™₯β™₯β™₯!!
Clothing detail! The ruffles are so nicely made!
DAT ASS. β™₯
I forgot to take a picture of the stand and her giant scythe… So here’s a picture off the internet… 
This figma is actually so so so pretty! I’m developing a special attachment to it because it’s my first~
I want to collect all of the Black Rock Shooter evil characters. (BGS, DM, STR), but they’re all kind of expensive! A friend is ordering the BGS figma for me and will give it to me at Anime North, so I’m super excited for that.
I’m so geeky! 
And I will end with this super artsy photo~
That’s it for now, thanks for reading!

Bison Bath Salt Review- Volcanic Clay

Hello darlings~

Yesterday I tried out the Bison bath salts that I ordered. I’m going to do a little review on them now! I hope you enjoy it. 
I bought my bath salts from eBay, two for about $7-8 I think? (Kinda pricy, I know.  But I really wanted to try them out!) The listing isn’t up anymore, but there are a few other listings for bath salts if you click here! 
The pack that I bought had the Volcanic Clay and White Clay Sweet Apple kind. You’ll find that if you’re ordering them from overseas, they’ll be quite expensive. :< 
The first one that I tried was the Volcanic Clay one. 
Bison bath salts claim to give you what is called a sweat bath. This basically means that, when added, it increases the water temperature by a few degrees! You will also start sweating like crazy.  I think it’s supposed to help you sweat out some toxins and make your skin better. 
The first thing I noticed after cutting the bag open was the smell!  It’s supposed to be a citrus smell, but it smells quite fruity…. it also has quite strong notes of tea in there. So it’s more of a fruity tea smell than a citrus smell. 
The dry powder is a darker pink, probably more of this colour than the pictures I showed earlier. (The lighting in my bathroom make it look quite dull)

This is what it looked like when I put it in the bathtub. The pink powder turnd into a green/blue/gray colour!  I knew there was something strange when I got the volcanic kind and the powder was pink! 

I even made a little video for you guys! The really cool thing about these bath salts is that they sound like poprocks in your bath!  Haha I thought it was cool. The popping was actually quite loud!

So, the experience~

After putting the salts in my bath, the water turned a bluish green colour! It was quite nice to soak in. After about 5 minutes, the water started heating up! Not to the extent that it would burn my skin, but really heated up the bath. There was lots of steam and I started sweating like crazy!  Good thing I took a glass of water with me before I started my bath. I  normally don’t like the feeling of sweating like crazy but I rode it out and I felt quite good afterwards! The heating effect lasted for about 10 minutes. 

Overall, I’d give an A to this product! I really really like these~ If you’re thinking about trying some, I highly recommend it! (Even if it is a little pricy, you feel great afterwards) 

Hope you liked this review! Tell me what you think~

Skin Care~!

I’ve been meaning to do this post since I’ve had about two people ask me!

I’ll tell you a little bit about my skin care routine and what products I use! And also some reviews, just incase you guys want to try them out.

Ratings are out of 5!

I find this product to be really great! πŸ˜€
I use it when I wake up and before I go to sleep. I actually didn’t really intend to buy this product – it came in a value pack with nice makeup remover! () But I needed a new cleanser so I decided to buy this.
It comes with a rubber scrublet which works amazingly! You put the scrublet inbetween your fingers and pour the cream stuff onto it, add some water, and start scrubbing your face. I find that it works really well – it removes all makeup like concealer and foundation and leaves your face feeling refreshed and tingly. :3
Sachie’s rating: / 5!

I bought this while I was looking for a good acne cleanser for when I had bad skin days. I find this product to be pretty good. When you us it, it foams up quickly and feels nice against the skin. However, it leaves your skin to be kinda dry, which I don’t particularly like. When using this product regularly, it quickly gets rid of acne and keeps it away. I’ve heard this product doesn’t really work for all skin types though, but it works alright for me! It also keeps your skin smooth! I like using it with the scrublet from the 360 Clean cleaner. πŸ˜€
Sachie’s rating: / 5

I find this moisturizer to be really good! I really like it! πŸ˜€
It makes my skin feel really smooth and nice, as well as claiming to have a pure dose of vitamin E. I put it on during the winter and worked well (imo) to fight dryness. It also has some SPF (15) in it, which I guess is a good thing! :3 It also has a really nice scent!
Sachie’s rating: / 5

Skin spray moisturizer: Skintelligence pH Skin Normalizer
I actually love this! It works amazingly as a moisturizer! When I first started using it, I had no idea what it was. My mom bought it for me, haha! But it’s really refreshing for the skin – it works great it you put it on before makeup! It has a really nice, light scent and it works great all over the body, even in the hair! I sometimes keep a small bottle on me because it works well to refresh your face if you feel icky. :3
Sachie’s rating: / 5

So the order that I normally use this is:
Cleanser, skin spray, moisturizer. :3

GUILTY PLEASURE:
I actually love using these so much! They feel so nice on your skin and leave your face feeling super refreshed!

I know they look kinda silly, but they work amazingly!
I love using these each weekend! xD I feel the blemish mud works so well! Like, when I get acne, I just slather one of these on and sit back for half an hour! It works great! I love it! xD

Sachie’s rating: /5

I hope these reviews were helpful? πŸ˜€
