Kira Kira Crate “Peach Party” Review
This box always comes with a booklet that describes all the items and how to use them, which is great for me because the majority of the packaging isn’t written in English! They also feature customer photos that use the hashtag #kirakiracrate to share on social media and include a great how-to on using the items in the box. This month’s theme is “Peach Party,” which seems really appropriate for springtime! Let’s see how good these beauty treats are, eh?
Kracie Naive Peach Body Wash
First up is a peach-centric wash that doesn’t necessarily smell a ton like peaches, but it smells really good! It boasts a nice lather, which it did deliver, but what I didn’t like about this was that it wasn’t sealed, sadly, and the bottle wasn’t filled the entire way to the top. The scent is definitely pleasant, though, and left a nice fragrance on my skin, so overall I liked this a bit.
Backside Warming Pads
This is definitely a new product for me! I wasn’t sure what to think when I first saw the package; I initially thought that I had found an, ahem, very different type of sheet mask. However, this serves a different purpose! These are warming pads to soothe aches and pains in one’s derriere, and I’m very excited to try these after a long day of landscaping my wild backyard.
Peach Face Mask Pack
A nice change of page is this creamy face mask! This consistency is so nice in the warmer weather because it feels so cool on the skin. Fermented milk offers illuminating properties, and promises a dewy glow after using. I did feel a bit more radiant after using this, but mostly, it felt really good to use after a sweaty afternoon of playing with my new puppy!
Heart Cosme Compact
Yay! Another makeup product in this month’s box - I do enjoy receiving these types of items. This is the Peach Blossom color and can be used on lips, eyes, and cheeks. I think I would be likely to use this a little bit everywhere because peach cosmetics tend to look good on my skin tone.
Pure Smile “Peach Milk” Sheet Mask
We close out this party of peaches with a sheet mask! Pure Smile is a brand I’ve had before, and they usually deliver a nice amount of moisture. This one did exactly that and smelled nice to boot! I didn’t detect a ton of peach scent, but again, it as pleasantly flowery, etc, and I felt like it delivered a nice amount of the more opaque serum.
Verdict: Overall, a super-pleasant box, but I feel like it was missing a wow factor this month! Having three kinds of masks/pads felt kind of repetitive, and sadly, they didn’t have a ton of retail value in my eyes. More often than not, I can count on there being an interesting beauty gadget or a larger, full-sized product in this box, and that wasn’t present this time around. That being said, I do really like the multi-use blush, and the creamy mask was very enjoyable. I look forward to seeing what the Kira Kira Crate delivers next month!
