Collective Haul + Mini Reviews

Well, hello there! Gosh, it has already been, what? More than a month, almost two, since the last time I posted. Time really flies by so easily, ain't it? But anyway, it's nice to be back for a while. :)

And here's another haul post! LOL. I don't really want a lot of haul posts in this blog, but I really can't do a review for each and everyone. I mean, because of this haul posts, I'm able to do mini-reviews on all products including those that I overlook and forget to review.

So here, we go! :)

Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Seed Oil (P129.75)
Human Heart Nature Intensive Hair Mask (P99.75)

First on the line are these two. This is my second bottle of Sunflower Beauty Seed Oil. I mainly bought it to lighten my underarms. I can't say much about the progress, because I don't closely monitor it. LOL. But I think it's working together with the body scrub and whitening lotion I use because the dark spots on my legs are lighter than before. Yes, I also use it for those dark spots. :)

Next up is the Intensive Hair Mask. It smells like the menthol candy Stork or Dynamite if you ask me. LOL. It also has that minty feel whenever I use it on my hair. And yes, it makes my hair soft as if I used a conditioner, only this one is all natural which is quite healthy. :) However, I notice that I experience more  hair fall whenever I apply it on my hair. But after that rinsing, everything's back to normal. And I have softer hair. :D Unfortunately, this 50-gram product can only be used 2 to 3 times for medium-length and long hair.

Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Moisturizer (P129.75)

This is also my second bottle of Celeteque Facial Moisturizer. And this is my first facial moisturizer. I've never used any moisturizer before this because I have the notion that I already have an oily face and I don't need this anymore. How wrong I was! This has done wonders to my face. And I'm gonna put that in a separate review. :)

San San Lipstick Hydrating Dew 04 (given to me by my sister)
Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick Island Glow
Nyx Round Lipstick in Femme
Nyx Round Lipstick in Nyx

Of these four, SanSan lipstick is the only one I haven't tried wearing outside because it's Red. Yes, I'm quite timid in wearing red shades because I don't feel it's appropriate for school. (Yeah, the other colors are appropriate. :P) But true to its name, it's hydrating and I might try that one day. :) My fave among these is the Avon UMR lipstick because Island Glow has a good color payoff.

As for the Nyx, I also like them, has good color payoff. It's just that I feel that there are better colors that'll suit me that I don't know why I bought these two. LOL.

Maybelline MakeUp Remover (P99)
Glam Works Hair Removal Soothing Lotion (P99)

I still have the Ever Bilena Advance MakeUp Remover but I bought Maybelline because the latter stings my eyes which is a very big no-no for me. And so far, I'm liking Maybelline. It doesn't sting plus this works better than my former Sophie Martin makeup remover. My mascara and eyeliner are easier to remove with this one.

As for the Glam Works Hair Removal Soothing Lotion, I haven't really used it enough to give any comments since I've only used it once.  :D

Tony Moly Cutie Beauty BB Cream 02 Pure Angel Amy (P350)
Skinfood Good Afternoon BB Cream Peach Green Tea (P411)

And finally, my favorites from this haul post. :D BB creams! :D

I've been using Etude House BB Magic Cream (Refreshing) for 7 or 8 months now. Yes, it still has a small amount left on it. I even cut the squeeze bottle just so I could use it all up. Cheapskate me. LOL. :D I love it, but I guess it's time for me to move on from it now. Eight months is long enough that sometimes you'll want something new. Prolly that's why some people just buy and buy new BB creams even if they still haven't used them all up. But I'm cheapskate and I don't have money to spend on more BB creams right now. :D

I bought this mainly for its description that said it's an oil-controlling and mattifying BB cream. Plus, it's just right for my budget. Anyway, I'll save the specifics for another post. :) On the other hand, I wanna tell of how it went with Skinfood store in Megamall. I went right there to see and test this BB cream out even if I had planned on buying it on eBay. (Store prices are double of what online sellers offer. -_- )

I didn't see it on the shelf so I asked the beauty advisor if they have this one and her answer embarrassed me. -_- She told me that the Good Afternoon BB line might not be from Skinfood. For goodness' sake. -_- I even braved going in on the empty store.

This one belongs to my sister. I believe it's suitable for dry skin. We just combined shipping so we'll save more. :)

BB cream and skin care samples

I wanted to try more BB creams so I'll know what to buy next after using my current BB cream all up. Half of these are included in our purchases, while half, mostly skin care samples, are freebies from the eBay seller bhappywithme. We bought the Skinfood and TonyMoly plus these samples from her. Thanks for the freebies. :D

Nivea Whitening Cell Repair Protect Body Milk 40x (P199 for 250ml)

The body milk from the same brand and line that I bought last December was already empty so I had to buy again. I wish skin care wouldn't have to be so costly. -_- But anyway, I love using this lotion. It's non-sticky and greasy and it's easily absorbed by the skin.

Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Foundation  (P119 for refill)

I bought this as replacement for the Maybelline Clear Smooth Extra Shine Free Foundation (the blue one). Basically, I didn't get the full version (?) of this Clear Smooth All in One foundie because I've read reviews that the foundie easily breaks. And it's not really fun using broken foundies. Most of the time, whenever that happens to me, I don't use it anymore. Sayang naman ang pera kung ganoon diba? But so far, I've been using this for more than a month now and it's not yet broken. I just already see the signs that it's gonna break sooner or later. O_O

Etude House Lip and Eye Remover (sample size)
Tony Tint (sample size)

First of all, I bought this from another eBay seller (NOT bhappywithme) and I have this suspicion that the makeup remover is fake. First, it smells like the 'spraynet'. (Do you remember that thing you spray on your hair then it'll get hard?) Second, it has bubbles in between the blue liquid and the colorless liquid. But overall, it works fine in removing my makeup and it doesn't sting my eye. So my question is, is that normal for the EH makeup remover? Because from what I see from the store, it's not like that at all. Plus, the blue liquid from the EH makeup remover from the store is 'blue-r'.

As for the Tony tint, I think it works fine. I haven't really tried the full one yet from the local store.

So there you go again for this long haul post. I hope the mini reviews are helpful. I'm off to study again.

  4. is the Etude House BB cream better than the silky smooth one? (white tube, purple cover) cause it makes me look so white :( I'm looking for one that will cover my face naturally. Thanks :)

  5. @Tulpar geee...thanks for the compliment (though I didn't have any photo on this post. HEHE)! will check your blog out too! :)

    @rovidear do you mean the EH BB Magic cream and the EH Precious Mineral BB cream? Unfortunately, they both do leave a white cast on the skin. :( Even though the EH Magic BB cream promises to settle on the skin after a few minutes, it still leaves a white cast that is not so noticeable personally, but is very obvious during flash photography. Will check your giveaway out! :)

  6. That's a lot, sis!! :) Love the BB creams.

    Followed you!
