I recently ordered these Chinese pastel pencils from Wish.com, they seemed to be too good to be true at $4.62 for the set. Individual pastel pencils are usually sold for that price. Shipping to Canada was actually more expensive than the set, $6 and change.

The pencils are skin tone colours, something I have never seen  being sold together in other pastel pencil sets, so I thought I would give them a try.  The verdict: they are not as soft as the CarbOthello pencils I usually work with, and not as good for blending, but they are useable.
