Here I have the Double Trouble Beauty Box with me. This is a beauty box that specially picked to kiss troubles goodbye, particularly for blemished and troubled complexions. Not to mention, the scorching sun here in Malaysia and UV rays that cause skin to be sensitive and irritated. This Double Trouble Beauty Box really comes in time to help soothe all the troubles. 
I am very attracted to the toner, masks, and moisturizing gel (definitely falling for the watermelon packaging) in the box. Personally, I think this box is also suitable for those who have hydration problems. This box contains 7 full size products in it and most importantly it costs only RM110!  
 What's inside my Double Trouble Box?
Da Mior Cleansing Soap (Charcoal)
#AMustTry #NaturalHandmadeSoap #TroubledSkin #Hydration

''DAM" stands for Beauty
"I" stands for Beneficial
"OR" stands for Branchless tree

Da Mior handmade soap comes in two different choices: Bamboo Charcoal or Bamboo Leaf. These natural handmade soaps contain Bamboo Extract that has cooling properties and natural ingredients, which has already been fermented for 45 days. These soaps are highly recommended for: irritated skin, clogged skin due to excessive sebum, and dry skin after cleansing.
Bamboo Charcoal - For oily/ combination Skin, mainly for pore care and to alleviate skin trouble
Bamboo Leaf - For dry / sensitive skin, mainly for whitening, soothing and hydrating.
From the production to packaging, the entire process is handmade done by professional artisans.
Main Ingredients
Bamboo leaf, bamboo extract, mung bean, propolis extract, olive oil (extra virgin), grape seed oil, coconut oil, shea butter. 
How To Use
Make enough bubbles and massage on facial skin for about 30 seconds - 1 minute.
It can be used to:
1. Spread on blemish part, e.g., pimple.
2. Deeper cleansing after putting on make-up.
3. Wash off sun cream and fine dust, especially on babies. 
4. Use as hair shampoo.
5. Use as soap pack before you go to bed. 
My Thoughts:
FYI, either 1 cleansing soap (bamboo lead or charcoal) will be randomly picked and sent in the box. I am lucky to get the Bamboo Charcoal soap since I have a combination skin texture and sometimes oily face. I like that the natural, fresh scent of the soap. It is effective in cleansing my face well, leaving a clean, smooth texture and fresh look. I don't really like to use soap bar on cleansing face, but I have exception for this one. I really enjoy using this soap and in fact this has become my top choice of cleansing soap to use. The only downside for using soap bar is that it does not include a soap container to hold, you need to get one to place it (not a big deal la.) Other than that, I love it!

Beuins Soothing Sleeping Mask (20pcs)
 #RaddishSkinOK #SensitiveSkinOK #MustHaveafterOutdoorActivity
A calming mask for sensitive skin to soothe redness and irritation. It is made with the aroma concept using natural lavender oil that gives comfort of mind and body as well as to your skin when applied. This mask contains Draconis Resina Extracts that helps to protect and repair skin condition.
How To Use:
For evening skin care, evenly apply on appropriate amount on the entire face. Leave it on skin overnight and gently wash off the following morning.
My Thoughts:
I like that it has a lightweight gel texture that can be easily absorbs into skin and It has a mild lavender scent. Compared to other masks that I've used, this mask is more towards greasy and sticky for me. As its name Soothing Mask, it is quite soothing after putting on. I can feel my skin turns smoother and softer. The only downside is that the sticky part. Overall, it is still acceptable, just that I wouldn't leave it on my face overnight, I would put in on for about 30 minutes and wash off before go to bed.

Check out the short clip below on how to use. (Press full screen for better view)
Applying the solution on the red spot on my cheek.
My Thoughts:
I have to admit that the solution is very soothing, as I felt icy feeling when applying on the skin. However, it does not seem to be very effective on my skin as my pimple still stayed there the next day. It took me a few days for the pimples to disappear with or without applying the solution. Also, it took awhile (few hours) for the powder to sink down and separate into two layers. This is quite a trouble if i need to use the solution and it's in a mixing state. It is quite powdery when put on face and it does not have any scent. If you have pimples or blemish acne issue, you might want to try this out and see if any magic happens. For me, it does not work so well.

SKINFOOD Trouble Cleat Spot Patch
 #SolutionforSuddenBreakouts #PimplePatch #JustStickonSpots
Using a steady regime but still get breakouts? Try out this acne patch that heals and reduces swelling of angry. It comes with 24 patches in a sterile package with 3 different sizes: diameters of 0.75cm, 1.00cm, and 1.25cm.
How To Use:
After cleaning and drying a wound/ acne spot, remove the protective film and apply the patch. Replace when the patch turns white indicating full absorption of activation. Use one or more patches until wounds are healed.
My Thoughts:
As you can see from my picture, it is very easy to apply, stick, and patch. Compared to the Onsaemeein Magic Powder Skin Solution, this is much convenient and easy to use. SKINFOOD really did a great job in keeping these patches clean and fresh. These patches are sealed in another layer of clear wrapping inside the package. I like that it has three different sizes to target on different sizes of pimples. This is my first time using spot patch, I think the thickness is acceptable, not too thin. For me, I think this works especially well on popped pimples. The patch actually turns into a deeper white color when the acne secretion is being absorbed. It helps in closing the acne wound as well. I am the person with not much acne, but still I would use this whenever the stubborn pimples popped.

My Thoughts:
How can you not fall for the cute watermelon packaging? I am definitely sold for the packaging (ahahaha). Besides watermelon, it also comes in mango and strawberry icing gel bar. On top of the packaging, I would definitely recommend this icing gel bar. It is so soothing and really has the cooling effect. It has a gel texture, but as soon as it is on your skin it turns watery and very moisturizing. I like it very much. It has a very fresh watermelon scent that makes me feel so refreshing. It comes in a big bottle that is sufficient for me to use for awhile. Most importantly, it does not leave any stickiness result on my skin and it really hydrates my skin well.

Royal Skin Prime Edition Moisture Bio Cellulose Mask
#MoistMoistureLevel #DailyMask #Hydrating #Protection
Bio Cellulose developed with coconut water fermentation is softly adhered to the face. The plenty of moisture makes skin more moisturized. It contains glacial water and sea salt extract to help circulate skin moisture for moisturizing effect. It also contains blue essence made of gardenia fruit that is naturally absorbed in a bio cellulose sheet to provide a sense of refreshing and cooling effect. 
The bio-cellulose sheet is made from fermented coconut water.
How To Use:
1. After cleansing, tone the skin.
2. Open the pouch, remove the covers attached to the both sides of sheet and apply it to the face.
3. After attaching it to the skin thoroughly, remove the other cover.
4. After taking a rest for 10-20 minutes, remove the sheet. 
5. Tap the remaining essence gently to make it absorbed to the skin.
My Thoughts:
As you can see the mask has 3 layers, including two layers of mesh covers. In the middle is the thin layer of bio-cellulose mask. I would say the mesh cover really absorbs the essence sufficiently into the bio-cellulose sheet to maintain a moist feel. Although the mask is said to be elastic, still be careful when you separate it with the mesh because it's so thin that you can tear it easily. No doubt the mask is very adhesive to your face. The layer is so thin that it fits perfectly on the face. It is a little sticky and creamy, but it is definitely very refreshing and soothing. It is very moisturizing putting on the mask and my face just turns smoother and fresher than before. Also, there are some extra serum left on the mask that I put on after removing the mask sheet for extra moisturizing. Overall, I like it and would recommend for anyone who is looking for hydrating mask.
