ShopIchigo Review ♥ Korean Skincare, My Melody Case, Fluffy Pom Pom Keychain ♥

Hey cutiepies! 

♥!! Super small announcement for anyone who doesn't follow me on Instagram and doesn't know it yet! !!♥
As you might or might not know, I recently got engaged! With recently, I mean in June this year. My fiancé lives in America, while I am from Germany. We've been working on a visa for me ever since, and the process is finally in the very last steps! If it's accepted, delayed or denied depends on an interview with the US consulate I'll have next monday, but if everything goes well, I'll hopefully be moving in the next 3 weeks. Due to all that stress I won't be able to post a lot for a couple of weeks until I arrived there safely, finished the Green Card application, we married and so on. The wedding is hopefully between the end of December to the first days of January 2017. Thank you so much for understanding that I'm gone for a little bit ♥ So you won't hear from me for the next weeks, but I'll be posting blog posts again when I arrive in our new home! Updates are as usual on my Instagram @sugar.mew though ♥

Now to the blog post!

Okay, first off: THIS POST IS PICTURE HEAVY. Lots and lots and lots of pictures, for lots and lots and lots of products! Shopichigo, who kindly sponsored this huge package for me, literally sent me the biggest package of goodies I've ever received. 

About Shopichigo

Shopichigo is a shop which specializes in Korean Skincare, beauty boxes, fashion and accessories based in the Netherlands. To all my European babes and babies, you might know how hard it is to get these things from a shop who is not located in Korea or other far away countries. Horrendously high custom fees, shipping time and costs are just horrible for the wallet and your nerves... so I am SO happy that there is a shop which actually is located in Europe and sells all these things. I can't be happier, really! The shipping only takes about a week now luckily. 
There'll actually be a second blog post coming up about these items, because you simply can't do a proper review about skin care within a few weeks. I'm already using the products shown below for 2 to 3 weeks now, and I will mention what I think so far, but a detailed review will come up in the future!

The links to all the products are at the end of this post ♥

 Skincare Products 

What I've got for the skin care products: 

COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid (shown in the white packaging in the middle)
Holika Holika Soda Cleansing Oil (shown on the very right)
COSRX Blackhead Silk Finger Balls (shown at the top)
♥ multiple little sample cosmetics (on the left side)

Like I've already mentioned before, I'll do a dedicated blog post for these things later, so I'll just summarize in a couple of sentences how I liked these so far!

The samples are from Innisfree, Holika Holika, Neulii and Skin Food. All of them are reputable korean skin care brands. 

The COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is a highly loved and praised product. I have really dry skin, which is also extremely acne prone, and I always have lots of blackheads. So far I can say: it doesn't dry my skin out which is nice, but I don't see any difference after 3 weeks of using it. Let's see after 1 or 2 more months!

The Holika Holika Soda Pore Cleansing Oil. I used it one time so far and I massaged my face for 1 1/2 hours (!!!!). Yes, really. While watching TV. This product actually worked then too! More in the future review though.

The COSRX Blackhead Silk Finger Balls. I don't have an opinion on them yet!

This absolutely adorable Kitty Headband is from Etude House! I use it now everytime I wash my face and I feel super adorable in it ♥. Unfortunately I don't know if the color is dark pink or light pink... but it's super adorable! The size is obviously "One Size Fits All"... it's kind of tight around my head, maybe I just have a watermelon head (which could be possible since my forehead reminds me of Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter), or it is supposed to be kinda tight so everything holds in place. I don't mind it at all since it doesn't hurt me though. 

Super cute business cards from Shopichigo! And this adorable My Melody Phone Case ♥ It's for the Samsung Galaxy S7 (normal, not edge!). I am a little confused because it says that it's for the S6 edge, but apparently the case fits for both models! There's also another kind of My Melody Cases for the S7, but the three styles you're able to choose from aren't depicted on there. There's also multiple phone cases for other phone models though, you can see which design is for which phone model if you go on the product description and select one phone model of the drop down menu.

There was this rubber string thing attached to the case when I received it. Like this you can just let your phone dangle around your neck. It always got stuck in my hair though and I didn't really need it, so I simply detached it. The metal loop hole that's still left on the case could be nice to attach a charm, even though the charm would always dangle in front of the camera if that doesn't annoy you.

LOOK AT THAT ADORABLE LITTLE MOUSE AH. She's apparently called Flat! For everyone interested in buying this case though, be gentle to that thin rubber part. She can be ripped off if you pull her a lot of times, I already got a little tear in the rubber. 

*Flat gives me a little kiss okay*

Last but not least this absolutely adorable keychain! Unfortunately I did not find it in their shop, they sent it to me as a surprise. I already asked if it can be found in the shop and they said it's not available yet... Hopefully it will be available soon to buy for anyone! The three attached bells are REALLY loud though. I'd put this keychain somewhere where it isn't moved too much, or stuff it with some  cotton balls with the help of a tiny needle. Or.. you just don't care if anyone hears you within 10 miles (16 kilometer, to be exact). 

It comes with two clasps to choose from in a pretty gold shade! The one clasp is a clip on and the other one... I don't know the name of it, but it's one of these evil things where you have to break your nails to get something in between the two metal layers and finally into the ring. It is a little easier with the little tiny bar in between, but... I am still happy you have two clasps to choose from.
