TokyoTreat - Japanese Subscription Box - Un-Boxing!*


TokyoTreat.com
June Subscription Un-boxing!


One of my biggest fascinations has to be all things Japanese; I adore the fashion, the beauty and even the food, and my dream is to one day travel to Tokyo to have the full experience and do a lot of shopping too!
My obsession with Japan started out from watching Kawaii related YouTube videos, to the point I'd see Popin cookin DIY candy making videos that drew me to the bizarre but creative candy that Japan has to offer. I remember ordering my first Japanese candy Online and the excitement on receiving it was beyond words.. Since then I am popping into my local Asian express supermarket to see what to try next from savory to drinks!

------------------------------------------------------

TokyoTreat.com is a fantastic idea and if you love subscription boxes then this is one to try out. This is the June box which I was kindly sent and as you can see it was full to the top with treats!
This is the premium box and can also be ordered in either the Small or the Regular. The box comes out every 2 months and can contain the most premium candy and snacks Japan has to offer but sent to the comfort of your own home.

Here is the selection of items that came in the June box!





























------------------------------------------------------

As you can see the selection was amazing with 15 rare Japanese candies including 
Super Mario World Choco Egg - it reveals Nintendo figurines (Mario, Luigi, etc) when you eat the chocolate.
Honey Butter Chips - probably the most coveted and expensive chips in the world at the moment (super rare, some sell at $50 / bag on Ebay!). Details: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honey_Butter_Craze
Baked Cheesecake Kitkat - the latest Nestle work with Kitkat, the only bakeable Kitkat and exclusively sold in Japan only.
I would personally say my favorite of all of the candies I've tried so far were the Honey Butter chips, they taste so sweet yet combined with a savory after taste and also the Apple flavoured Jelly that I had to store in the fridge was a surprising taste sensation too with both the flavor and the texture as it was packaged in a sippy pouch!
Thanks to the very kind Yuko Suzuki, Owner of TokyoTreat, she has supplied my fellow readers with a coupon code for 15% off your first box! Just use the code UniqueLoveStyle

Feel free to check out the online website for more information on the subscription service with any questions you may need to be answered available on there too!

Thoughts and Review

Phil Smith Hello Moisture Conditioner (250ml) - £3.50*

Hey sweeties! I hope your week has been going well, and with that I'm getting back on the blogging wagon and going to bring to you new posts! 
Today's post is another Phil Smith duo, the wonderful Hello Moisture shampoo and conditioner nourishing repair set. This set is aimed for hair types such as dry and damaged to re-new the moisture and health back into it. 
These products can be purchased from your local Sainsburys store or on the online website at an affordable price for salon quality products.

All comments and opinions are 100% my own and I've not been paid to say them.

Phil Smith - Hello Moisture Shampoo*
  • I love the packaging of the Phil Smith products in general and this one didn't fail to amaze me. It's eye-catching and the wording fits nicely with the colour scheme. 
  • All information is there on the packaging including directions of use and the key properties of the product and how it shall help the hair's condition.
  • The product has a flip open top to deposit the shampoo from, but can also be unscrewed for an easier pour.
  • The shampoo has a clean and fresh scent to it, but it doesn't last very long on the hair itself.
  • I use the shampoo twice when I wash my hair, on the second application it lathers a lot nicer and I can feel it's effect; due to suffering with dry hair, the more I've used the product the better I've seen the results.
  • The only thing is that I wouldn't overuse this product, only in a serious need of treatment for my hair is when I would use the combination together for intensive deep moisture.

Phil Smith - Hello Moisture Conditioner*

  • The font and wording has been clearly displayed on the packaging; stating the directions of use and its abilities to help banish dryness.
  • The bottle is handy due to it being a squeeze bottle and has a flip top for easy opening and application.
  • The scent of the conditioner is practically the same as the shampoo, a clean and fresh fragrance and I can mildly smell the Shea Butter which is part of its ingredients, it's subtle but doesn't last very long when the hair is dried.
  • The formula is quite rich, I only applied a small amount to my palm and then worked it into my hair after using the shampoo; For a more intensive treatment I left the conditioner on for much longer as I suffer with heat damaged hair from time to time.
  • When I washed out the product I felt how glossy and sleek it was to the touch and a difference that it made from root to tip.
  • I'd recommend to use this product for dry/frizzy hair and do an intensive treatment at least once a week to give it that boost it needs.

Umberto Giannini - Frizzi Range - Styling Spray*



Review of the Umberto Giannini - Frizzi Range
Styling Spray


Umberto Giannini Frizzi Styling Spray (200ml) - £4.00*

Hi there Beauties! Today's post is another styling product which with having much more warmer weather here in the UK, this is something which will come in handy!
I sometimes struggle with having frizzy hair, mainly when I've dried it using a hairdryer and the shorter parts become fluffy and stand up! With the weather also changing from one minute to being rain then hot sunny spells the next, I have been searching for a frizz tackler. 
Here are my thoughts on Umberto Giannini and a product from their Frizzi range!

All comments and opinions are 100% my own and I've not been paid to say them.
--------------------------------------

Umberto Giannini Frizzi Styling Spray (200ml)

  • Packaging is sleek and modern with a silver exterior; A professional looking product which is easy to hold and direct when spraying the product.
  • I adore the actual Frizzi font that Umberto have used for their product range, it's very quirky and the sketching of the female image too makes it unique from other packaging.
  • The lid is a simple pull off top which can be pushed back on into place after use.
  • I applied this spray to my towel dried hair, I would spray about 5 pumps from root to tip then with a de-tangler brush, brush it through so the hair is completely smoothed down.
  • The scent of the spray is just like a salon experience but at home! It's fresh and leaves the hair to smell lightly fragrant.
  • I didn't find the spray to be greasy or sticky once sprayed into the hair, I could just feel how smooth it was when brushing it from root to tip!
  • I left the spray to soak into the hair for around 5 minutes, then I styled my hair into shape and blow-dried, I could already see the results as my hair looked healthier and sleeker; which resulted in not having to straighten it as much as before.
  • It's been a complete god-send and I use it every time I was my hair now! I'd advise this product to anyone who suffers with frizzy hair even if it's just a little or from the summer drying out the tips; it's made such a difference.
