(Review) (Part 1) MOCO Loot Box aka MocoCrate #001

Hello loves!
I bet all of us would be happy unboxing mystery boxes from time to time!

I love unboxing and here I am unboxing a MocoCrate for you.
Basically MocoCrate is a community where we bloggers/influencers review the items from various brands for you!

I have divided the post into "Beauty" and "For Fun".

Part 1 will be on Beauty coz its my most loved category.

Their platform will be up soon, so register if you too would like to review products ^^

Just posing with my potato head.

Products in MocoCrate #001:

#1: Canmake Star Product- Marshmallow Finish Powder

Brand: Canmake
Item: Marshmallow Finish Powder
Origin: Japan
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Maybe. ^^

I don't think I need to intro to you the brand coz it is a very popular Japanese make up brand adored by many including myself! I own their Canmake Stay-On Balm Rogue (SPF 11 PA+), Eyelash essence / serum, their beauty blender, and the newest Canmake Cream Cheek Tint.

Anyway, Canmake has been in Malaysia for more than 7 years now. Recently Canmake opened its first stand-alone store in Da Men Mall, USJ Subang, Malaysia.

I adore Canmake products from its packaging to product quality. It is portable, pretty / cute and finishing never disappoint me (so far!).

Instructions:
This Marshmallow Finishing Powder is to be used at the last step of your makeup and also for touch ups throughout the day. (I must confess I NEVER do touch ups coz I am just lazy and that the Althea Velvet Powder works so well for my skin that I do not need touch ups!)

Claims:
> Achieve a matte finishing while concealing pores and even out skin tones.
> It also has a SPF 26 PA++ (advisable to use sunscreen first coz SPF26 is NOT enough for me)
> Additive-free mineral foundation that is kind to skin therefore it can be removed with any ordinary facial cleanser (72% mineral ingredients; free from surfactants, tar-based pigments, alcohol and fragrance!)
> Contains shine-free preventing powder thus make up lasts longer.
> Prevents skin becoming dry / rough over time. 
> The two different-sized spherical powder particles create a light-scattering effect makes the blurring of pores and evening out skin tone more natural

Important Ingredients & Functions:
Moisturizing Agents - Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Rosemary Extract, Chamomile Extract, Lemon Extract
Toning Agents - Horse Chestnut Extract, Perilla (Shiso) Leaf Extract
Emollient Agents - Squalene, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Grape Seed Oil 

Instructions:
make up base > foundation (cream / liquid is recommended) > Marshmallow Finish Powder

Available shades:
3 shades available! (Matte Ochre, Matte Beige Ochre, Matte Light Ochre)

Thoughts?

It has a mirror but here I have darkened it.

There's a plastic layer which I think I shouldn't throw away but I did. Oh well. >.<"

The puff is pretty thin compared to the Althea's Petal Velvet Powder (Full review HERE)

After a few dab, this is how it looks like.

This is a #NoFilter pic. I only darkened the background and unsaturate the yan bird nest coz it is not the main highlight here. This is my final make up look finished with Canmake Marshmallow Finish Powder. It does blurr out pores, skin smooth to touch and slight brightening of skin but no coverage for me so I need to scout for good concealers especially for my undereyes.

Scent? I personally feel fine about it but my sis don't really fancy the scent. I think it has a mild clay-to-neutral smell. I am totally okay with it. But of course, I love the scent of Althea powder that relaxes me more. I would recommend this to those who do not like much scent for a loose powder.
Texture? Its not the loose powder kind thus it is less messy during application. Matte finishing on skin and smooth to touch. Does have a tone up effect and bluurr out pores function too!
Coverage? Super sheer, like nothing on my skin la...
Lasting for how long? If you sweat, you gotta touch up. If not, it stays for quite some time ^^
Skin color suit or not? I feel it may be a tad bit lighter for my darker skin tone but over time I think it seems okay on my skin.
FYI, I think drier skin is not that suitable for any loose powder as it makes the dry skin more prominent.

Recommended:
For people with normal - oily skin coz it kinda mattifies the face thus it is sebum controlling (so if you have dry patches at certain area (ME!!), you may see it become cakey or drier areas more visible!)
Best to have a well moisturized base first!!
Especially great for those who are light on make up and want an effortless no make up makeup look on an evening out or just running errands.

You can get it at any Sasa, Aeon Wellness, Guardian or even Hermo Malaysia, 11street, and many other online sites!


#2: Yan Society Bird's Nest

Thoughts?
Price of the smallest bottles in a box of 6 cost about RM1XX.



Here I got 1 to try.
It comes in an extra small bottle compared to the ones I usually see in the market so I was a bit sceptical at first glance. Upon tasting it and finish it in less than 5 gulps, well....there's actually quite some bird nest in there compared to the usual other brands that I have tried. Others have more water in it and white fungus too. While this has more bird nest than solution and sweetness is just alright. Not too sweet and just nice for me. Now I get why its price is more steep in such small bottle.

If you have tried it, lemme know if you'd like the voucher coz I have bird nests too at home that I have yet to finish.

Re-purchase? Yes, if I am too lazy to boil my own XD

You can scout for products at their Facebook page.


#3: Posh! Nail Spa


About Posh! Nail Spa:
A one-stop pampering salon (from mani/pedi to hair and eyelash extensions as well as catering for private events). Previous story HERE.

Thoughts?


We were given a RM50 voucher and I opted for their Indulgent Pedicure that costs RM75. Its a much needed pedicure coz I generally go for mani most of the time. The Indulgent Pedicure includes the basic (of shaping buffing etc) and also buffing of heels (to remove calluses) and also scrub session for your lower legs. Legs were smooth after and you can choose up to 2 colors for your toes!

Definitely recommend you to go visit and wind down yourself after a stressful day at work! Love their big comfy chairs.

However for more complicated details, always call to inform them so they are ready for you.

For more info, stalk their Facebook page or call the respective outlets for more information/reservation.


#4: Footsie

Not sure when I will be using it. XD

About Footsie:
They say its for people who looks for relaxation and comfort through massage.

Thoughts?
I am interested in their Signature Thai Mixed Therapy
RM118 for two. Not sure how it works. Yet to visit.
I mostly go for shoulder and legs massage, not the body coz I am a very ticklish person.
