All of the cute! I’ve only just – within the last week – deleted Pokemon Go from my phone: it was a great way to have something in common with my 10 year old nephew and we spent a long time searching for the Christmas Pikachu together back in December. However, he’s a little less interested so I felt it could quietly go and free up some badly needed space on my phone. However, I did really enjoy playing it!
This is the kind of collaboration that the Korean brand, Tony Moly, does really well with – taking a cartoon or cute graphic to make it look fun, but having a very decent product inside (fermented ceramides in this case). It’s actually a very lovely, silky feeling hand cream that totally does the job of hydating and softening hands. It smells … er.. fruity… like sweets but not horrible ones and they all have the same underlying sweet/fruity scent although they are supposed to have individual fragrances. So the pink one (Purin) is Peach, the blue (Kkobugi) is Lotus and Pikachu is Vanilla. Also I have to say I never came across Purin or Kkobugi while I was playing Pokemon!
Anyway, if your inner Jigglypuff is calling, they’re launching onto BeautyMart in Top Shop on Oxford Circus for £9.85 and online at beautymart HERE from next week (if you can’t wait, I noticed a Pikachu sheet mask already there).

I wonder why Jigglypuff and Squirtle have different names, but Pikachu doesn’t?
These are really cute so I must resist as I really have no need at all for them.
I know.. weird isn’t it.
I bought my brother’s girlfriend the Pikachu hand cream for Christmas and it was the surprise hit present. She (and my brother) loved it and the smell. It is a sweet vanilla but they loved sweet scents- the other hit present was a Butterbeer flavoured lipbalm!
I’m tempted to buy one for myself and a few more for my brother and his girlfriend Clara. I do still buy mine on eBay because they are under £5 and I always get samples from Korean sellers. I also bought a Tony Moly Pikachu lip tint last month and I was pleasantly surprised but how good it was. There is a pretty big range of Tony Moly Pokemon products now including cushion BB creams, eyeshadow palettes and lip balms. In fact, Clara may be getting an entirely Pokemon make up themed birthday present!
I’m definitely going to be picking up some of the Pokemon goodies Tony Moly have released, BUT not for those prices! 😛
I want to try the face masks, hand creams and the body washes. 😀
