Beauty Haul | July

Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Assalammualaikum and annyeonghaseyo! 'Eid Mubarak to all Muslims in the world! How's your 'Eid by the way? Mine was... unsurprisingly exhausting! I didn't have much time to prepare before the celebration as I only got home like 3 days before so I have to rush everything plus we went back to my grandmas's place a day before so yeah.. it was crazy. 

Okay, moving on with the post, to be perfectly honest, I was so busy throughout this month (I'm sorry as the updates are being slow) and I only went out shopping like once right after Eid. Heck, I don't even shop for Eid. So, this month's haul is focusing on some items that need to be repurchased while some just bought as gifts for myself as I celebrated my birthday on the first day of Eid this  year. :)

As you probably expected, first, let's go to Laneige Malaysia!


From the White Plus Renew line, I decided to repurchased the Skin Refiner, Original Essence and the Original Cream as my current ones are running out. I used up the Trial Set throughout April to mid May and started to use the full sized ones since that. No worries, to those who're waiting for the reviews of the products from this line, I'll be sure to post them soon. :)


Another repurchased item is the Clear-C Effector, a booster filled with 35% of Vitamin C. Totally loving it hence the repurchase. I'm praying hard that the new (I assume more awesome) upgraded version, the Clear-C Advanced Effector with 90% more Vitamin C is going to be brought to Malaysian counters soon as it was launched last June in S. Korea. As I mentioned in my previous Empties Post before, I tried few sample pots and I really had fall my head over heels with the Firming Sleeping Pack in contrary to the bestseller Water Sleeping Pack hence I bought one for me and another for mum. 


Above are some of the freebies that I received upon purchase at the counter while others are sample packets that I gave to mum and some friends. I received another Trial Kit for the White Plus Renew line and one Basic & Water Bank Refreshing Kit along with two Water Bank Mineral Skin Mists (one in older packaging).

Next, let's go to Etude House!

   

Well... technically, I didn't go to the store this month as these items were bought by my cousin from the Korean stores who brought them back to Malaysia recently. Introducing the new (I assume soon-to-be-launched-in-Malaysia) upgraded version of the Wonder Pore Freshner! This is still listed under new product section in the Etude House Korea official app (go and download them!) With merely 15,000KRW (approximately RM45), it comes with free cotton pads (like the ones from Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum) and that cute Special Kit that contains also new Soap, 25ml miniature and sample of Pore Corrector. To be honest, I'm still at my second 500ml bottle but I couldn't resist the fact that the new one has cooling effect! Yay!


I also asked her to get me one Cleansing Foam from the Every Month cleansing line which is the March: Apple & Tomato (Tone Clarifying) at less than RM10 (retailed at RM29.90) and that Face Conditioning Cream (Light) with SPF25 PA++ at less than RM25 which retailed at RM79.90 here in Malaysian stores. I was lucky as my cousin bought them during sales. :)

Next, let's go to The Body Shop!



Honestly, it's been a long time since I went to this store by myself as I only been using the ones passed by my parents to me. haha Don't get me wrong. Many times Dad grabbed wrong things at the store that my mum find them unlikable and thanks to that, I'm hooked to new fragrances. So when I went to the store at Nu Sentral, KL, though I was looking for Vanilla Shower Gel but the big ones aren't available... :( so I decided to get the Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, Body Mist and bath lily. The Body Butter is recently passed to me. hehe 

   

While I was trying to sign up for membership (just spend minimum RM100 for Peninsular Malaysia and RM80 for Sabah & Sarawak), the BA said I actually just need to renew mine. Then I remembered my roomie once used my ID to sign up before in 2012. hmm... By the way, there're significant differences between membership in Peninsular and Sabah & Sarawak where in Peninsular you can collect points (one point for every RM spent), and can use the points accumulated to redeem vouchers and buy normal priced items whereas in Sabah & Sarawak, though you can't collect points, the stores there offered bigger (in my opinion) discounts and offer Gift-With-Purchase items. The above item, classic Vanilla Body Mist is one of the things I got from Sabah's store. As I purchased a lot for my parents as well, I got those two mini Vanilla shower gels and on the right, mini Moringa Shower gel, and the recently launched Honeymania mini shower gel for free. 

   

As I mentioned in the previous post before, I had to grab the Maybelline White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder in Sand Beige refill not because I finished the full-sized product but because I accidentally misplaced my makeup bag in my luggage and loaded it into cargo though I still have like few hours before boarding plus another few hours on board plus I need to go somewhere right after landed and I definitely not gonna go through my luggage for it. Phew!  So, I grabbed this at Guardian in KLIA 2. So cute, right! I even considering buying more of it and maybe put it in each of my bags! hahahaha 

Okay.. That's it for the haul of this month! Whoa~ I can't believe I actually took about 3 hours just to write up this post... though it's given as I was listening to Jay Chou's old songs and had to stop and reminisce at each of the song... 

So what do you think? Do tell me what do you think and if there's a product you want me to review.. though it's gonna be awhile (I'm almost done preparing the reviews requested before) so yeah, leave comments below!

Until next post, annyeong!
