Hey guys! It’s been almost a year since I posted my 1st ever beauty haul! Ever since that haul, I gained more interest in make up and especially in skin care. Since I realized, what is the point of having expensive make-up products if you’re not investing in your skin/face which is our blank canvas?
I saw Beauty MNL thru their ads on facebook and then I stared browsing their products and then it happened. I started adding things to my cart and never looked back! Hahahaha! I think of Beauty MNL like it’s Zomato but for skin/hair care and make-up. Once you buy from them you can also review those items to help other clients to choose which products to buy that works well with their skin type. Another thing that’s great about this site is it’s like Sephora but for local and asian brands.
Here is an overview of the things that I got. It’s not much but these are the items that I really need and was intrigued to try. I purchased this last November 1 and they gave out freebies from COSRX and Cream Silk.
First up on my cart was the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask ( P899 ).
This product claims to “Purify, deep cleans, and exfoliates with AHA elements to remove dead skin cells and Jeju volcanic clay; controls sebum production and minimizes the appearance of pores; brightens, tones, and delivers a cooling effect; leaves skin softer, smoother, and clearer” and ever since I got more conscious about my skin care routine, I’ve been on the look out for a clay face mask that out actually minimizes my pores and to remove any unwanted dirt that the usual toner and moisturizer can’t handle. Basically what I was looking for in a face mask was in this product and as I read through the reviews of other buyers with the same skin type as mine, I was convinced that this maybe the answer to my dilemmas.
The Verdict: Honestly, the only set back I have with this is it’s price and for the quantity that I am getting. But I thought to myself “sige na ‘te, kunin mo na. Magtipid ka nlng sa ibang bagay..gumanda ka lang!” Hahahaha! But I am happy that I got this, it delivers to what the product promises, a purified and clean skin. After using it for several times, I can already see that my pores were less visible and my skin looked brighter and healthier! So for 899, this is worth it! Although, I wish it comes with a spatula for hygienic purposes.
Next is another product from Innisfree and it’s their No Sebum Blur Powder ( P598 ) which is said to be an Oil-control loose powder for fresh and smooth skin.
The Verdict: I love this powder! I once used this after my shift for a quick touch up cause I have a dinner to attend to and it made my skin so smooth like a baby’s butt! It smells refreshing too! Di na ako mukhang haggardo versoza! Pak mukhang fresh all day!
The next item that I purchased is this All In One Snail Repair Cream from Mizon *I think I got this for P315* *It’s not available anymore, but they have a bigger size 75ml for P1,250*
“It’s an all-in-one cream infused with miracle ingredient, Snail Mucin Filtrate, that promises to do it all: lighten trouble marks, diminish fine wrinkles, care for widened pores, and keep your skin deliciously hydrated.”
The Verdict: At first I was really curious about the “snail mucin filtrate” about what it can really do to the skin and if it will deliver since I have a very dry skin. But to my surprise, it absorbs fast on the skin and leaves it moisturized the whole day! It doesn’t sting on my skin as well, unlike the other moisturizers that I’ve tried before. It’s also very lightweight and not sticky! pea-sized drop is all you need and you’re good to go!
I am a lipstick junkie! and of course the haul wouldn’t be complete without a liquid lipstick from Pink Sugar! This is my 2nd Sugar Tint ( P350 ) and this one is on the shade Crazy in Love and my first one was in Queen Bee.
The Verdict: I am always in the look out for the perfect nude lippie and Crazy in Love, really makes me crazy in love with this shade! It’s MLBB! I wouldn’t buy a 2nd tube if I didn’t love it. It’s very pigmented and long-wearing! It smells good too and it’s not dry on the lips!
I also got these as a freebie from my purchase but I haven’t tired these samples from COSRX yet but I’ve read good reviews about this one so I’m excited to try these out!
I am not beauty blogger but I do love to take care of my skin! Hope you guys enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed using and testing these products! 🙂
