Spreepicky Dress Review {Sponsored}~

Hello everybunny!
I was recently contacted by Spreepicky through my Instagram to see if I wanted to review something from their site! If you don't know Spreepicky, they carry a lot of different cutesy jfashion clothes, wigs, accessories, and several cosplay things too! You can find things like seifukus and lolita-style dresses on their site, as well as lots of other cute (and more casual) clothes!
The dress I chose to review is the White Sweet Simply Lovely Lace Dress, which is currently $30 on their site, and it comes in 4 different sizes. 
I thought this dress had a really cute, and yet simple design to it, that would make it perfect for everyday wear! 
I happily ordered the dress using the gift card they gave me, and eagerly waited for it to arrive to my mail box! It took about a week or so for the package to get to me, and it arrived in a pretty pearly shipping envelope~
Inside, was my dress!
It  came safely packed in a plastic bag, with the cutest kitten face logo on it!
I do really like their adorable logo ;v;

They also included their business card, and a bookmark with a lewdly dressed girl :> I'm not sure if she's from some sort of show or game...?
And here's the dress itself!
It was a bit wrinkly upon opening the package, but that's to be expected ^^ After a quick ironing, it looked much happier! This dress is made from a cotton-polyester blend, and has a little bit of stretch to it, so it's quite comfortable to wear! The skirt has a bit of lining, which is nice because then your undergarments don't really show through, which I've found to be a problem with white dresses ;-;
And here are some photos of the dress tried on!

I really like the design of this dress, especially the high neckline! It zips up the back and is quite roomy, so it's very comfortable!
The sleeves have ties on them, which I think is a cute detail~ I didn't tighten it too much though, but I think it looks cute regardless!

I also really like the lace detail on the front! It's fairly nice quality lace, and the design of it is quite pretty and unique. It adds a cute girly detail to the dress, and it's fairly subtle too!
Here's the whole coordinate I put together with this dress ^-^
Casual Fairy
Wig: Taobao
Dress: Spreepicky
Bag: Liz Lisa
Tights: Aliexpress
Shoes: Melissa

Regarding communication, I exchanged several emails with Meko, and she was really sweet! She always wrote back quickly, which I really appreciate! 
On the whole, I'm very happy with my experience with Spreepicky! The shipping was quick, and I really like the dress I received! I'm looking forward to wearing it in the future, as it is an adorable piece ^-^ 
If you choose to shop from Spreepicky in the future, you can use my code Milkii for 10% off your order of $30 or more! I highly suggest you check their shop out, since they have so many cute things!
Thank you for reading, I hope you found this little review helpful!
I hope you all have a beautiful day <3

Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review {Sponsored}~

Hello my lovely flowers!
I was recently contacted by Althea to review their new launch, their Petal Velvet Powder! Althea carries a wide variety of brands, but this was their first product from their own product range, which I think is quite exciting!
Anyway, let's begin!
I was surprised by how large and sturdy the box was that this powder came in! I really commend Althea for their good packaging, it's nice to not have to worry about products getting damaged in transit ^^

I have to say, the packaging for this product was beautiful!

I admit I gasped a bit when I first opened this up, I wasn't expecting it to be so cute, so it was a wonderful surprise! ;v;

(The inside of the box lid had a bit more information about Althea, if you're interested!)


Here's everything that was in the box! I really like the inclusion of the bag of rose petals, the pink feathers, and the plastic instagram-thing, it really makes the whole experience more luxurious!

On to the actual product itself though!

The powder came packaged in a simple, light pink box, with some information in Korean on the back.
There's also more information on the back of the jar, once again in Korean.
This is a loose powder, and comes with a sifter, so it's quite convenient and simple to use!

This powder is only $4.50, and you get 3 grams of product, so it's a very budget-friendly item ^^
It claims to make your skin soft as a flower petal, and to control sebum. The powder is infused with Althea seed oil, so despite the oil control, it doesn't dry your skin out. This powder is also cruelty free, which I really like! I haven't found very many budget-friendly cruelty free brands, so I'm happy that Althea offers this item.

The powder is very soft and velvety, and has a gentle floral scent, which I really like! Although it looks white in the pot, it appears translucent on my skin. However, since I'm very pale, I can't comment on how it would look on darker skin, since I feel like it might have a white-cast on richer skintones.
Let's take a look at how it looks on the skin!

I've been very lazy with makeup lately, and essentially only wear concealer, so for the most part, I apply this product on bare skin.
Before


After


I think this powder does a lovely job of mattifying my skin! It leaves my skin feeling very soft, like a rose petal~ Since it's such a fine powder, it doesn't look cakey, nor does it look too powdery.
I've noticed that by the end of the day, my skin gets a bit oily, but for the most part this powder does a great job at controlling sebum and keeping my skin matte. 
Anyway, here are some more photos of how it looks on my skin, since narcissistic selfies are a must-have :v



Overall, I'm really pleased with this product! Especially given how budget friendly this is. I really recommend this if you're looking for a new setting powder! 
Once again, thank you to Althea for sending this to me for review!
I hope you've found this review helpful, and that maybe you find your new favorite setting powder ^-^
Take care lovelies, I hope you all have a beautiful day! <3

Things I'm Waiting For In The Mail | Summer Sales Edition~

Hi everyone!
Recently, a lot of Japanese clothing companies had their summer sales, so I decided to buy some things! I mostly just got things from Ank Rouge (bc they're my favorite brand ever), and while I impatiently wait for my items, I thought I'd share what I'm waiting for~
Before I get into all the Ank Rouge things though, I did get one item from Liz Lisa!
I thought this blouse was the cutest thing ever when it came out, and originally I wanted it in white, but it was no longer available in that colorway ;^;
So, I settled for the pink, but I think it's really cute too! I really love the details near the neckline, and the puff sleeves are really cute as well! I think it's a little bit over the top, but hopefully I'll be able to coordinate it well ><

Now time for the Ank Rouge items!
Firstly, I ended up getting what is one of my favorite cardigans in two more  colorways!

I have this cardigan in a pretty periwinkle color, and it's so comfortable and cute and versatile I just had to get it in the other colors >< (and they were only 2000 yen each!) The nice thing about these cardigans is that you can wear them backwards (with the buttons on the back) and they look just as nice! 
I don't usually get the same item in different colors, but I think since this is such a versatile item that I love so much, it's okay!
I also got this really cute cutsew because a fellow jfashion enthusiast (xsakisaki on instagram) has it and it looks adorable on her! I think it has a very strong larme-kei feel to it, so I hope I can wear it as well as she does!
I really like the netting details, as well as all the ruffles!

Initially, those three items were the only ones I ordered from Ank Rouge. However, then I saw they were having a promotion where you could get two tops for 5000 yen and I had to get two more ><
I thought this top was absolutely adorable; I love the lacing and the puff sleeves and I imagine this will have a very cute fit! It's also not too cutesy, so I should be able to wear it with more casual outfits!
I really liked that this top had a sailor collar, and I think it's cute without being over the top! I actually have only one cute black top, so this is something necessary ^^

I realize it's a bit silly that I only got tops, but I always find myself unable to put together outfits because I lack cute shirts >< I almost always buy just dresses and skirts, so I barely have any cute tops :v So, hopefully this order will remedy my problem and my wardrobe will be happier!
I'm really looking forward for everything to arrive, and will do an unboxing on my YouTube once it does!
Thank you for reading, I hope you liked seeing the items I'm waiting for!
Bye-bye~

Unik Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner Review~

Hello everybunny! 
I was recently chosen by iUNIK to review their Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner
If you follow my Instagram you might have seen the small review that I wrote there, but I thought I would write something a bit more in-depth here.
So, let's begin!

This toner is currently $17.99 on the iUNIK website, and you get 200 mL of product (which is quite a lot, I think!)
The product boasts five effects: moisturizing, calming, skin recovery, wrinkle care, and oil moisture balance. It contains 70% Rose Damascena flower water (which is supposed to help with moisture), and 10% galactomyces ferment filtrate (which is supposed to help with skin recovery and sebum control). 
Before I get into the rest of the review, I do want to mention that this toner contains several alcohols, so if you have very sensitive skin, this might be something you want to avoid ><
This sounds like a very promising product with a lot of benefits- let's see how it fared, shall we?
Firstly though, a bit about shipping! I received my toner about a week after I sent them my address, which is pretty reasonable shipping time considering that it came from Korea!
It was also packaged very sturdily, in a cardboard box with a lot of bubble wrap. I approve!

They also included samples of three of their serums (all of which I really liked!)
And the bottle of toner itself~
I know this isn't very significant, but I have to say that I quite like the packaging of this product! It's simple but it looks quite clean, and the bottle itself is quite sturdy.
On the side is written information about the product, the ingredients, and the directions.
To test out this product, I used it (almost) nightly for approximately a month. 
One thing that I really love about this toner is the scent~ It has a very pleasant and soft fragrnce that's a cross between rose and lychee, and I really like it! It's not terribly overbearing however, and fades quickly, so if you don't like items with strong fragrances, I think you'll be ok ^-^
Since this toner claims to be moisturizing, I was worried it would leave my skin feeling a bit oily, but thankfully that wasn't the case! It absorbs quickly, so that I can easily continue with the rest of my nightly skincare routine. 
After using this product for about a month, I have to say there aren't any drastic changes... but to be fair, most toners don't give drastic results because, well, they're toners, and generally toners don't have very *boom* impacts. But, this did make my skin a bit softer, and honestly I quite like using it because it doesn't dry out my skin, and because it smells nice. 
On the whole I recommend this product if you're looking for a toner that's not drying and you like the scent of roses. If you want something that has a very big effect, this might not be for you...
However, I'm going to keep using it, because I like having it in my nightly routine, and I hope you will too if you decide to try it out! ^-^
Thank you for reading, I hope you found this review to be helpful! And thank you once again to iUNIK for sending me this for review <3
I'll see you in my next post!
