My latest blog collaboration was with Tosave which is a shopping site similar to Wish, the system is comparable to Amazon. The products are asian production and come with a very low cost.
The costs of the products can be very attractive.
I choose three clothing items since I was very curious about the quality and two beauty products because I am a fan of face masks and asian beauty products are said to be very good.
The first item I chose was a knitted sweater with reindeers on it. I thought it would be perfect for Christmas but that didn’t work since the parcel came by the end of January (two months after it was sent unfortunately).
I am normally wearing S but since I know that clothes from Asia tend to be a bit smaller, I choose M. As you can see I chose well and it fits perfectly.I really like the style of this sweater since I am a big fan of cute shirts and sweaters and it is also warm. The sweater costs 11,80 $ which is a bargain.
The thing I am a bit skeptical about is: There were no tags on the sweater, no label. According to the website the sweater is 100% cotton but I can’t see it on the sweater. Also I am not a fan of not knowing were clothes are made, so I wish there were some information.
The second item I choose was a very cute plaid dress in red which I also had in mind for Christmas since red is a total Christmas color to me. Anyways I also wear red the year around, so no big deal.
I also chose M here and it fits, but could be 1-2cm longer.
It costs 9,85 $ and is also a super bargain since it is 100% linen and it actually truly is! The dress was the only clothing item that had tags on it and information about washing it. So this is what I missed with the sweater, some tag to tell the material and how to handle it when cleaned.
As I said the dress is 100% linen, so it is very thin and needs something underneath because it might be see-through standing in front of light. I can think of a beautiful winter styling with black tights, overknee boots and a cardigan. I will actually style it that way soon and post an outfit post with it.
The third and last clothing item I chose is a plain loose short sleeve T-shirt in beige for 5,25 $.
With the shirt I actually made a mistake with the size. Tosave offers charts under the item description where you can see what the sizes actually mean and out of habit I also took M. The shirt is short in the front and a bit longer in the back. It also has cuts on both sides. So the shirt is not too small, but I would have liked to wear it with leggings and it is too short for that, also the side cuts are very high, so it needs a top underneath. Otherwise it would reveal way too much.
No tags with the shirt, so same thing as the sweater. The website also says cotton and that might be true but no signs of how to clean it or where it actually comes from. It just looks different from what I saw on the website, so that is actually an item I won’t be wearing since it is too small for me and I am also not a fan of the thin material.

I got two beauty products from Tosave and as always I chose masks. Well, who would’ve thought 😀
One bamboo charcoal blackhead mask for 3,08 $ which I am always curious about.
There are so many videos on the internet about charcoal masks and I always like to try them, this is the third charcoal mask I actually tried. I tried this mask two times now and what I can say is that I leaves a very smooth and soft skin, but I only tried it on my nose. It truly reduced blackheads but doesn’t pull them out to be honest. Maybe I did something wrong or didn’t let it dry long enough but well, it still, has a really nice effect.
The active gold anti-aging face mask is also pretty nice. It consists of 50g gold powder and costs only 1,49 $. On the package it is recommended to mix it with milk and honey. So I tried it with milk and honey and what can I say, made my skin glow and also very smooth and soft. Due to the sparkling gold powder I would not recommend to use it in the morning, I mean, you cold if you like the ultimate glow on your face but I rather use it before sleeping.
I can recommend Tosave if you like to try new things and do not want to spend a fortune. The have various products, so you can try whatever your heart desires.
The biggest problem for me is that the parcel took exactly two months to arrive and I wish I would have known.
Thank you Tosave for the collaboration and for sending me the items !
