It’s been 2 months since I posted a haul. I’m back with another one. This time it’s from a local/Philippine-based beauty website. BeautyMNL carries hundreds of local and international brands from drugstore to high-end. They have korean brands as well. COSRX, Klairs, Innisfree, Tony Moly and YET to name a few. I got the opportunity to order from them.
My haul is a mix of products with high ratings, bestsellers and a new release:
Loreal Refreshing Micellar Water
Micellar water became a huge hit last year and many brands are releasing their own version. Loreal just released one here. I received a newletter from them telling me this was on sale. I knew I had to get it. Can’t say no to discounts. This is my first skin care product from Loreal. It only has 8 ingredients. It’ll be a good makeup remover especially if you’re a minimalist like me. Full details here
Detail Mineral Pressed Powder
Detail MakeOver is a local/Philippine brand. Mineral Pressed Powder caught my attention because of its size. It’s 10 grams for 199 pesos ($4). It’s such a steal compared to other powders. They have matte liquid lipsticks and palettes as well. Full details here
Maybelline ColorSensational Matte in Clay Crush
Now this is THE trend for lipstick addicts. If you want brown shades for a drugstore price, go for Maybelline’s Creamy Matte Brown line. Yes, they are perfect! I know the bestselling colors are quite difficult to find in-stores. Good thing all shades; Nude Embrace, Daringly Nude, Clay Crush, Nude Nuance & Burgundy Blush are available on their website.
Sooper Beaute Pimple Away Day Cream
This pimple cream is one of the bestsellers. Sooper Beaute is a local brand. I found out about them on Instagram. I’m seeing many positive feedbacks after using their products. I’ve been stessed lately and it’s automatic for me to get breakouts. I’m using this cream since the day I got the package. I’m liking it so far. This will probably be the first one to be reviewed here on my blog. Full details here
Baroness Green Tea Mask
A new korean brand in PH. They have different face masks but I chose green tea. We all know green tea is good for calming and detoxing. It’s great for oily and acne prone skin. Full details here
Golden Cup Balm
This menthol balm received high ratings from reviewers. It has a relaxing and soothing scent. I got the 4g tin to test it first. We all know menthol balms are pinoys’ savior when we get sick. We use it if we have fever, colds, cough, muscle pains and etc. I’ll use this mainly for muscle pains and especially for my severe migraines. Full details here
Instantly Ageless Eyebag Remover
When this came out, it was all over social media. I watched some before and after videos to see its purpose.I was really amazed on how quick you’ll see its effect. I knew I had to see it for myself. It’s like instant botox without the needle. I ordered this because I have malar festoons also know as eye bags on the mid cheek. It’s a difficult condition to treat. I dont know how I got them, from lack of sleep or hereditary. I’ll share my own before and after photos in my full review. Full details here
Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Rose & Milk & Black Beauty Shampoo with Conditioner
I got these two as freebies. A good combination of sample and full sized items. Black Beauty comes in a 10ml-sachet while Olay Whitening Bar is 90g. Its size is enough on my short hair for at least two uses. You can use Olay Whitening bar for a long time.
So far I’m using two items in this haul. Can’t wait to use the rest! Which one would you like to try in this post? Share them below. My whole shopping experience will be posted tomorrow with bonus tips! 😉

Most products in this haul are for replenishing my stash. Nagkasabay sabay pa. Lots of expenses this month.😭
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.😊
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: Read more ›
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.😂 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.😅 anyway, just click on the photo to zoom in.😊 All sporsored items are marked with “***”

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. 🙂 ❤️
1. Bifesta Moisture Cleansing Lotion – click 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.
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). 👯
The items were shipped on separate dates. 🙂 I used different addresses. First parcel, I used an address in Makati City (a big and busy city). 2nd parcel was just delivered in a small town.
Post Office Experience 1st parcel: The tracking website was stuck with status May 17, Arrival at inward office of Exchange. I kept on checking the tracker daily. Dont depend on the tracking website alone. I emailed a PHLpost staff to give an accurate and updated status last thursday May 28. She replied on the same day. Read more ›
Good afternoon readers! This month’s haul is not as huge as my April haul. I bought lots of skincare as usual. I have a new favorite brand, COSRX. I also have some sponsored makeup. Hope you’ll find something interesting to try out. 🙂
I thought I needed to shop some items from my wishlist. I ordered some products online and the others are bought in-store. Most of the items here should’ve been included in my past hauls. 🙂
this is my biggest haul so far. Let’s start.
Top (from left to right)
1. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam – 545 php for 2
I bought these at buy 1 take one from an online seller last September. I received these on December 6 because they were stuck at the port which is currently an issue here in our country.
2. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask – 565 php
I also bought this on sale and received it together with the cleansing foam. Read more ›
