January 2016 Haul + LUSH Santa’s Belly Set Unboxing

Most products in this haul are for replenishing my stash. Nagkasabay sabay pa. Lots of expenses this month.😭

image

1. SKINLITE Makeup Cleansing Tissues
I was supposed to get Etude House’s Every Month Cleansing Tissue but it’s out of stock! I visited 3 stores and had no luck. Good thing this is a great substitute.

2. ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore Freshner
I ran out of Lush Tea Tree Water. I wanted to go back to Wonder Pore because it feels like it gives better hydration although it has alcohol.

3. ETUDE HOUSE AC Clinic Daily Gel Lotion
I still have some left in my first bottle. I cant get the most out of it because of the glass packaging. Why cant they make it in a plastic tube instead so we can squeeze everything out?

4. LUSH Fresh Farmacy
Again, I ran out of this soap after 2 months. My HG cleanser and daily essential. Can’t function well without starting my routine using this.

5. LUSH Santa’s Belly Gift Set
The set includes Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly and Red Fun (100g each). Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly was on my wish list. We only have limited stocks here and it’s always sold out. I bought this gift set just to get it. I was on panic mode when they texted me that all christmas items are 25% off. I was so sad to find out everything was 50% off after a few days I bought this. Didnt get anything after because that’s too much. I’m not crazy about the holiday collection. I’ll just wait for their annual sale in 2017.

6. IN2IT Waterproof Eyeliner Pens
It’s a gift from my sister. We’re both practicing on doing winged liner. Hopefully this pen will make it easier for us.

What was your first haul this year? We’d like to know. Share the link below.😊

Mini LUSH Skincare Haul

image

I’ve been watching Lush hauls on Youtube lately. Special thanks to vloggers Grav3yardgirl, GwenInRealLife, Zoella, Beckie0 and UK bloggers. I searched on the USA website and listed some products for oily & acne prone skin. I did a little research for descriptions and ingredients. I dont want to be clueless and buy something just because I want it. The products mentioned below are useful for my skin type. I came back to get my cleanser. Then I’ve set a budget for splurging and here’s the result:

July – September 2015 Haul

Hey everyone. I’ve combined all the products that I got from the past months. We’re in the “ber” months already. Christmas season here in the Philippines starts in September. Yes, we have 4 months of celebration.πŸ˜‚ Malls are getting crowded again so I went shopping early. I know stores will have their christmas sale in the next few months but these products are rarely on sale. No need to wait for that.

Most of these are my needs. I’ve already used up some of them so they’re not included in the photo. Im controlling myself from doing massive hauls. Im slowly getting there.πŸ˜… anyway, just click on the photo to zoom in.😊 All sporsored items are marked with “***

June 2015 Mini Haul

Im trying my best not to hoard or buy anything that I dont really need. So please excuse my little haul. Hahaha. I needed to replenish my stash. I ran out of foundation. I had breakouts and needed something that can help minimize them. I also ran out of cottons for cleansing & toner. Oh I did not include the cottons in the photo because they are too big but I’ll include their names below. πŸ™‚ ❀️

1. Bifesta Moisture Cleansing Lotionclick here for full review
I think this is the most affordable cleansing water in the market. It only costs Php 419 for 300 ml. I bought this because I dont want to use cleansing tissues anymore. I’ve read on a wordpress blog (I forgot the name) that cleansing tissues can damage the skin. This can get pricey because of its consistency. I dont mind since I prefer water type cleanser than oil. Of course, we cant compare them to cleansing oils. You just need a small amount on that.

2. Snoe Buff The Magic Tonic Cystic Buffering Solution
I had a breakout this month. Im still on vacation and no need for injections this time. I dont want them to stay long. I searched for a product that can minimize them especially the cystic ones. This came to my mind because it’s specifically made for cystic acne and it’s Php 499 for 20 ml.

3. Maybelline Clear Smooth Do It All Powder – Refill
I was looking for the 99 pesos all in one powder but it’s not available anymore. I got this for Php 169. Good thing Maybelline’s packaging for all in one/do it all refill has always been great. Im not a fan of buying foundations in their original packaging. It’s like Im just buying the packaging, not the foundation.

4. Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Lip Liner
This is on my wish list. I’ve never tried to use a lip liner before. Its price is Php 179.

5. Cleene Cotton Balls (150 pieces)
I bought this for my toner. It’s 46 pesos.

Wishtrend Haul + PH Post Office Experience

Happy weekend! I’ll be discussing my first experience to buy on a website from another country and mostly about the post office. My order was free because they gave me a voucher. I took the chance because I was curious about how it will go.

I also joined their sponsorship last April. I won a bottle of C20 Pure Vitamin C 21.5 Advanced Serum which arrived earlier. I didn’t expect to win but I’m really grateful. And oh, the one I got was manufactured on my birthday (April 8). πŸ‘―
