Hello lovelies!

Upon unwrapping, it gives me 2 Big surprise.
Thank you Shoppinkboxcereal!

I think I got the Nude Thrill. Would go for Belle or Red Revival the next buy! ^^

#1
The box usually comes in a pink one!
What you see is their limited edition #EmergencyBeautyKit that looks so so luxurious. The box quality of the pink one is still way sturdier but no dents is found in this gold packaging too!

#2
3 FUll-sized items all from Hermosa, thank you!!!!

Thoughts (After 2 weeks usage):

(Limited Edition)

Brand: Hermosa
Item: Cleansing Water
Content: 50ml
Origin: Malaysia
Rating: 4/5 (minus 1 for its scent coz I prefer super minimal scent)
Re-purchase: Yes (for its convenience & effectiveness)
Recommended: For people who are okay with scented products

Ingredients:
Aqua, Organic Chamomile Extract, Organic Aloe Vera Extract, Decyl Glucoside, Cocobetaine, Citric Acid, Phenocyethanol, Argan Oil
*NO Paraben, Alcohol-Free, NO Mineral Oil, NO Animal Oil, Cruelty-free*

Directions:
Spray a small amount of Hermosa Cleansing Water onto cotton pad & gently wipe in circular motion. Followed by preferred facial cleanser.

This limited edition has added exclusive formula of pure argan oil for that extra nourishing benefits for the skin. It is suitable for all skin typesIt comes in a plastic vacuum packaging which definitely helps save products till the very last drop. Its also very compact so it won't take up much weight when traveling. I am not a big fan of its very strong pomegranate-like scent though it says it contains aloe vera & chamomile. However its soothing botanical ingredients (Argan, Aloe Vera, Chamomile)  helps to comfort, hydrate & add radiance to my dull skin. There is minimal formation of bubble and a creamy feel (which I do not know why as it contains NO soap and NO alcohol.) when I rub off  to pre-cleanse my face. After rinsing with water and pat dry, my face feels soft and moisturized. No break out after 2 weeks of usage.


Brand: Hermosa
Item: 24K Gold Serum
Content: 15g
Origin: Malaysia
Rating: 4.5 (minus 0.5 for its scent)
Re-purchase: Yes!
Recommended: For acne & dull skin user

Ingredients:
24K Gold Extract, Orange Extract, Licorice Extract
*NO Paraben, Alcohol-Free, NO Mineral Oil, NO Animal Oil, Cruelty-free*

Directions:
Apply after toner, before moisturiser.
Can be used with any other serum/essence.
Can be used both day & night.
Can also be used as a primer/makeup base.

It comes in a glass bottle and glass dropper. It has a similar scent to the Cleansing Water but milder with a minimal perfume-y scent. There are gold flakes floating in the clear serum which makes the product looking extra luxurious! 1-2 drops is sufficient for my whole face. Face feels tight and dewy. It leaves the skin minimal tackiness after absorption. After 2 weeks of usage my face looks less dull and lesser acne formation even during days when I do not wash my face, LOL. Blackhead and whiteheads formation are lesser too. It says that it can also treat acne scars, will update again coz 2 weeks usage ain't that obvious yet.



Brand: Hermosa
Item: Lipcreme Long Wear
Content: 7g
Origin: Malaysia
Rating: 4/5 (its transfer quite a bit to cups)
Re-purchase: Yes 
Recommended: For anyone who loves great payout and yummy scent!

I like the packaging as you can see in #1. Unfortunately in #3 shows obvious cracking at the inside of the packaging. But it does not affect the application so its okay! ^^

From 1-5:
Lip swatch.
It is very pigmented and product spreads well as you can see in #2. I smacked my lips at #3 and almost all the lips have the product in #4. #5 shows the complete application.

Lippie Removal with Hermosa Cleansing water with half a cotton at #1.
#2 shows removal after 2 swipes.
#3 shows clean lips after 4-5 wipes.

Directions:
Apply a small amount on lips & blot excess creme with tissue.

Thoughts:
It comes in a clear sturdy plastic with a flat applicator. I don't know what color I got coz there is no label at the packaging. Upon opening, chocolate smell gushed out and I am honestly tempted to eat it but I cannot. Lol. It really does smell so good and NOT artificial at all! The wand makes application a breeze, even at the sides of the lips. It did mention to stay away from oily food and such but, I am eating it anyway. It definitely does not dry out my lips after some time of application but would be better if you moisturized them for longer lasting plumpness and smoothness of lips. It is super pigmented and creamy at lips, love it! Topping up color after falling off is fine too! The only downside is the color transfer is quite significant even when I am drinking a cup of hot milk tea (not like its packaging that says long lasting colors ! BUT also coz I did not blot excess creme with tissue as advised). It is not entirely smudgeproof as it dries pretty slowly to matte. Even when matte, there is still minimal color transfer (i stuck my lips to my back of hand several times and it still do transfer minimally). Color stay-wise, Orkid Cosmetic matte lippies still win.

***will update again using the blotting method soon!***

Bonus Review items from Shoppinkboxcereal (by lady boss, Shafiqah):

Pinkboxcereal Rose Hydra Toner

Brand: Pinkboxcereal
Item: Rose Hydra Toner
Content: 60ml
Origin: Malaysia
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes 
Recommended: For rose fans!

Ingredients:
Aqua, Rhododendron Ferrugineum (Rose) Leaf Cell Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chlorphenesin.

Directions:
You can spray twice daily or as often as needed.
Use after your cleanser step and also after your acne toner. 

Thoughts:
It comes in a clear plastic spray bottle. Spritzing was easy as it disperses quite widely. It is compact and quickly hydrates your skin whenever and wherever you need it. It has a very strong rose scent. I have been using it on-off for more than a month Now it has around 1/2 left.

Pinkboxcereal Berry Acne Toner

Brand: Pinkboxcereal
Item: Berry Acne Toner
Content: 60ml
Origin: Malaysia
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes 
Recommended: For acne skin user!

Ingredients:
Propylene Glycol, Zinc Oxide, Aqua Talc, Sulfur, PEG-40 Hydrogenated, Salicylic Acid, Castor Oil, Camphor, Glutaronitrile, Methyldibromo, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Imidazolidinyl

Directions:
Shake bottle thoroughly until it becomes a milky liquid.
Place a few drops onto facial tissue / cotton pad and dab on areas that are oily or have acne.
It can also be used to clear and soothe your pores.

Thoughts:
It comes in a clear plastic. I use it only when I have erupting acne. I would let my cotton pad of 2 drops of the solution to sit on my acne for about 5-6 second before moving onto the next one. It helps to dry out the acne as early as 3 days and recovers in about 5-7 days. I only then pat around areas with larger pores to avoid drying out of my face.
