As promised, here's the Tangs Beauty Box Review for y'all.

THE PACKAGING

I love the packaging! It's not hardbox (paper based), still can be reused and recycled. 

WHAT'S INSIDE THE BOX

I freaking love the smell!!

Gently apply this concentrated cream to face.

My Opinion
It smells heaven and the packaging is so cute. I find that it's perfect for normal to dry skin. If you are blessed with uber oily skin like me. Wear it twice a day and just a little bit of it. 

THE POREFESSIONAL

My Opinion
I am blessed with uber oily skin and large pores on my cheeks and nose. Unfortunately, there's no way I can say goodbye to them permanently. All I have to do is to hide them. Yeap! The POREfessional is my current fave. I love to wear it under makeup. 

Uber impressed with my first experience using The POREfessional and now I can't live without it.
