It's already the second to the last day of January today! Seems like just yesterday when I was too busy preparing for NYE! Whew! Anyway, let me share with you my first ever haul for 2013. It's a mix of skin care products and cosmetics, as usual! But you're going to see new products here, so, let's get it on!
1. Belo Essentials Day Cover Whitening Vitamin Cream with SPF 15 (50ml)
Price: Around P185.00 from Mercury Drug
Last December, I bought the 20ml, the one in the small squeeze-tube packaging. I liked it because it glides on smoothly on the skin, doesn't have a greasy finish, contains SPF and your skin can really benefit from the ingredients. That's why when I ran out of my first tube, I decided to buy the full size that comes in a jar. Another reason why I tried this is because I love the Belo Essentials Night Therapy Whitening Vitamin Cream which I recently wrote a review here. Review for this one coming soon!
2. Moringa O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner (100ml)
Price: P87.00 from SM Hypermarket
I was in search for a new toner to try next after emptying two full size bottles of the Belo Essentials toner. It was a good toner but I thought that there's just something missing. So, when I went to the Supermarket earlier this month, I went over the skin care section to find a new toner and this Moringa O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner caught my attention because of the word malunggay. I read the ingredients and the benefits and I was sold. It's affordable so, why not try it! After a couple of weeks of usage, I can really say that I'm in love with it! Review soon! :)
3. BYS Concealer in Light (12ml)
Price: P199.00 from SMNE Watsons
The reason why I bought this is because of its consistency. When I swatch it on the back of my hands, I thought it's thick and heavy-duty and looks really promising. However, when I tried it to conceal my imperfections on my face, I found out that it dries up very quickly that you will really have a hard time blending it. I'm still figuring out how to use it properly or if it's just the way it is. Review soon!
4. Yves Rocher Lip Balm in Strawberry Flavor
Price: P80.00 (sale) from Yves Rocher at SMNE
I honestly don't know why I bought this! Haha! I still have my The Body Shop lip balm and Nanny Rose's Queen Bee lip balm but still, I purchased this. Maybe because it was on sale from P200 to P80 only plus it's Yves Rocher! Haha! But seriously, when I walked out from Yves Rocher after paying for this, I was confused why the heck did I bought this one! Haha! :) Anyway, it's all good! I love its scent!
5. Peripera My Skin Pact SPF30 PA++
Free, received it as a gift!
Our Korean friend came to visit us here in the Philippines and he gave us a few pasalubong from Korea! One of those is this Peripera compact powder. The one in the compact actually belongs to my Mom and mine is the one in the refill. Haha! I just wanted to show you how the compact looks like. Yes, the compact powder comes with a refill already. Review soon! :)
6. Peripera My Color Lips lipstick in No.15
Free as well!
This is also one of the pasalubong we received from our Korean friend. I am absolutely in love with its packaging because it's very fancy and girly. I haven't tried it out yet. Review soon!
7. Glory of New York Cosmetics
From Glory of New York Philippines
Awesome lipsticks and eyebrow/eye pencils from Glory of New York - Philippines! Review for these products soon! BTW, the lipsticks are awesome! :)
8. Revlon Products from Stuff N' Shop
* Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush foundation in Nude
* Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara
* Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer
Watch out for the reviews soon! :)
9. Hello Kitty Studs!
Free, gifts from my nieces!
My nieces from Tagaytay paid us a visit here in Quezon City and they gave me two pairs of Hello Kitty earrings! I love it and they even got two of my most favorite colors ever! :) Thanks, babies!
That's all of it! I promised you a lot of reviews for most of the products mentioned here and I am going to keep my promise so please stay tuned. :) Talk soon!
Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)
