Korean Make up Trash, Treat or Stash: Hello Bunny Perfume Bar, Bebe Powder

Trash, Treat or Stash. The Korean make-up products I've discovered are better off in the bin, the ones you should treat yourself to every now and again, and the ones that are so good that you should definitely make sure you have a stash of them.

Tony Moly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar
This was an impulse buy I made at the airport before going to Beijing. I only took hand luggage with me, so I wasn't able to take any perfume. The airport was really impressively fast at checking me in and getting me to the gate, so with lots of time to kill I decided to go and look for something to make me smell better after lots of travelling. This product seemed like the perfect option...

Cost: This cost me ₩7,000 at the airport for a 9g bar. That's just over £3.50 which I thought was reasonable compared to some of the other products I had been looking at in Etude House.
Prettiness: I loved the packaging of the product. It's shaped like a cute bunny wearing a bow tie, what's not to love? I have to admit it was the packaging that drew me to the product.
Scent: I spent a long time trying to decide which one in the range that I liked the best. I don't really like heavy, or sickly smelling perfumes so I managed to narrow it down to 2 out of the 5 pretty quickly. The purple bunny smelled a lot like Etude House's Miss.Twinkle Perfume which I already have so I decided to go with number 1 Bebe Powder.
Usability: The stick itself is teeny. It's just a little bigger than a lipstick tube, so it's perfect to carry with you wherever you go. It's also really easy to apply, it's a creamy bar, almost the consistency of soap that you can rub on your skin to apply the scent. I was wearing it in the hot sun in Beijing and I could still smell it up to 3 or 4 hours later so it lasts a looong time.

Overall: This is a really hard verdict to give. The Hello Bunny bar fit all the criteria that I was looking for. It was small enough to use as a travel perfume and lasted a long time, but after the first day I grew to really dislike the scent and that was the one I had considered the best out of the whole bunch. Looking on the website it's described as a citrusy smell with vanilla undertones, but all I can smell now is baby powder. Maybe the hint was in the name! If you like the scent, then this would be perfect, if you don't then it's probably worth saving your cash and buying something else!
