It’s already October! Days ago by fast when you’re super busy (is that a bad or good thing?) :P
Time to share my hauls again! Hope no one is bored of these yet hehe

L to R: Dabo Aloe Essence Mask Pack, Dabo Green Tea Essence Mask Pack, Dabo Cucumber Essence Mask Pack, Hemius Q10 Mask Pack, Hemius Wine Mask Pack

My aunt bought a lot of masks from The Face Shop in the city and let me take some to try.
I admit..I was being greedy, just a little…lol :X

TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

I tried it a couple of times and I think I like Batiste more...
After using it my hair still looks/feels pretty oily.
Will use it more before I confirm that I dislike the product. I was hoping it would work since it’s cheaper than Batiste.

L to R: Kracie Purenavi 3 Das Trial Kit (Cleansing Oil) & Foaming Net

Kay from cosmeddicted talked about using a foaming net before and I was really intrigued. Maybe it’s just me but I think my acne has been a lot better since using it. Also…the cleansers that I thought were really drying out my face before didn’t anymore after started using the net to create a lather! Big shocker…! But I really wish I can find the version without the three little balls inside them, it makes it slightly harder to create a lather since they are in the way.

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion

No secret that I got this since I already blogged about it earlier. The price I paid was pretty expensive (USD$19) but then again I bought it at a store and most beauty stores in Chinatown jack up there prices. (Only place I can purchase since I can't order online)

L to R: Essie Chinchilly & Seche Clear

Again I got too excited and posted about Chinchilly before my haul post lol
I’ve used Seche Clear a couple of times and I really like its consistency and it dries very quickly...I like! And unlike Seche Vite, it doesn’t have any of the Big3 bad chemicals (wonder why it varies from products..)
I think I might purchase the Seche Natural to help strengthen my nails (if it doesn’t have any of the Big3 in it of course).

Parian Spirit Brush Cleanser

I like (maybe love) this! It spot cleans pretty well..unlike some *cough Sephora’s cough*
Great for busy/lazy weeks when I don’t have time to deep clean & it leaves a citrus smell. It might be a little too strong for some, but I find it pleasant. Now I wonder how the Cinema Secret one smells like..I heard some say it has a vanilla-y after scent, yum!

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer in Light Buff & Lancome Teint Idole Fresh Wear in Bisque 4W

I stopped by a couple of Sephora’s to see if they had Lancome Teint Miracle on shelves (they didn’t) so I asked some for other samples instead.


  1. I've been really wanting to try the new Lancome foundation too! Please let us know what you think of it^^
    I've used the Effacernes concealer for a few years as well and I loved it! The only thing that puts me off it is the price now...when I first began using it it was $25CA, now it's approx. $31CA--quite the jump, yikes!

  2. I think I'm going to go check Sephora again when I'm not as busy. The new foundation sounds great :P

    Wow that is a big price jump!

  3. I definitely adore ''Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion''. it is just a fabulous face moisturizer. love it =D!!!

  4. Ah I was gonna ask if you've tried the Teint Miracle yet lol!sad the Sephoras don't have any =( I haven't checked out my Sephoras yet but I for sure will look for it next time I go ^__^

  5. I haven't yet either! Lol I'm going to go check the Sephoras in the city when I have time :P
