Shu Uemura eyelash curler & Phyto black cream review

So, I relented and decided to keep the mini eyelash curler, since I can put it to use SOMETIME lol.

Here's what the head of the eyelash curler looks like. It is, well, very mini :P

Here's a sideview. Overall, I still have problems with pinching my eyelids and feeling like I'm going to poke my eye. However, it does the job at curling those tiny inner lashes... and not those sharp, 90 degree angle curls lol. I would say that unless you're some kind of eyelash curling wizard, it'll take some time to practice with this until you get fully comfortable using it.

And now, here's what made this order worthwhile lol...

AHA complex - derived from fruit acids to gently exfoliate dead skin cells

Pros: Smells sooo good (: goes on smooth, absorbs well, not sticky or greasy, seems to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Cons: Expensive!

What I thought about it:
I lovelovelove this cream especially since I love sample size JARS. I detest those little sample packets since they're just to small and tend to get messy. Anyways, I cannot rave enough about how I love how this smells. I know how fragrance can irritate some people but I just think it smells so good (; Also, as for consistency, the cream is not too thick or thin so it absorbs well. It's not sticky or greasy or oily at all. I applied it all over my face and under my eyes and the next day I noticed some improvement in the fine lines under my eyes (or I hope so atleast xD). My skin was also smooth, hydrated, and glowy. The only thing about this is that it is SO EXPENSIVE! The 50 ml jar is $125 :(
