Pokemon X Tony Moly Haul!

Hello everyone!

Recently, Tony Moly collaborated with Pokemon to create a makeup and skincare collection! And because I love Pokemon so much, I couldn’t help but want to purchase a lot of items, haha.

But the first item I bought wasn’t from this collection. I bought Etude House’s Beauty Shot Face Blur cause I’ve been dying to try it!

So I figured I’d pick it up since I was already buying other things, haha.

But anyways, onto the Tony Moly Haul!

The first thing I was interested in buying was this adorable Pikachu Eyeshadow Palette!

I love that Pikachu is on the outside, and the colors are nice, neutral browns that are great for everyday. I’ve been using it quite a bit since I got it, and the eyeshadows are really good quality! There very pigmented and smooth! This collection also has a Jigglypuff version with rosy brown shades, and now I’m super tempted to buy that one too, lol.

The next item I bought was this Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion in #01 Skin Beige.

This is actually my first cushion foundation, and so I thought it was great that it’s a smaller size, just in case I don’t wear it often (as I don’t always wear base makeup). I still haven’t tried this yet, but I’m planning on trying it this weekend! So excited!

Since many reviews of the cushion mentioned that it was really dewy, I figured I’d might as well get the adorable Purin (Jigglypuff) Peach Pact in #01 Downy Vanilla.

I love how Jigglypuff is imprinted on the powder! This is another product I haven’t tried yet, so I can’t really say if I like it yet, but I can’t wait to try it too!

I also bought a few things from their skincare line. The first thing I got was this Pikachu Moisture Foam Cleanser.

Again, I haven’t tried this yet because I just opened another cleanser, but I couldn’t resist the Pikachu packaging!! So adorable!

The last thing I bought for myself was the Isanghesshi (Bulbasaur) Hand Cream. I didn’t take any close up photos of this because I also bought another cream for my sister for her Christmas stocking, so if I like it I’ll do a review post after I try it!

And the last thing I received was a bunch of Tony Moly samples! I got 3 different hand creams/hand milks to try and then this mysterious men’s skincare product that I don’t really know what it’s for, haha. Maybe it’s like a serum/toner?

But anyways, that’s it for my haul! Have you bought anything from this collection? Let me know in the comments!

Things I’ve Hauled Lately Part 1

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you some of things I’ve bought over the past few months, since it’s been a long time since I’ve posted any hauls (or anything really, lol). A large amount of this haul is skincare, especially sheet masks! I love sheet masks and I was able to go to shops with brands I’ve never tried before, so…I bought a lot, haha. It’s so much stuff that I had to split it into two posts!

Onto the hauls!

Jolse Cosmetics Haul

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to share what I bought from Jolse Cosmetics. I heard about this website through YouTube quite a while ago, but I hadn’t bought anything until recently.

I’m pretty happy with my experience ordering from them as there weren’t any issues or anything. I’ll probably use them in the future for other orders too!

Products I’ve Used Up #1

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to show you things I’ve used up recently!

I always find these kinds of posts or videos very insightful. Unless you really love a product, using up something takes a bit of effort. Especially when you’re like me and buy a bunch of things to try.

IMG_1347IMG_1348

This group of items are all skincare related. I find it very difficult to use up makeup (because I have way too much of it, yet I still buy more. Why can’t I stop?), but when I do it’ll be included in future posts like this!

I managed to finish a lot of stuff close together recently, so this is going to be quite a long list!

First up are some hand creams!

IMG_1349

I go through hand cream like no tomorrow, as I’m constantly washing my hands at home and at school. These two are the perfect size for traveling (25g) or leaving your bag so it’s easy to use them throughout the day. These two are from Crabtree & Evelyn, and are a little on the pricey side, but I find I always come back to them. One is in the Citron (honey and coriander) scent and the other is the La Source Hand Therapy. I love them both, but the one I always find myself purchasing again is the La Source one. It just smells so good and is so relaxing! If you only pick one, I would go with this!

Next up are two mascaras!

IMG_1350

One is a travel mini of Benefit’s Bad Gal Lash (something that I may want to repurchase) and the other is by CK One. I liked both of these, but I definitely prefer the brush style of the Benefit mascara versus the plastic applicator of the CK One mascara. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing that one again for that reason, but I will say that it made my lashes look really long and pretty! I just find that other mascaras with more comfortable wands do that just as well, haha.

I have also used up a tube of the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Sunscreen.

IMG_1351

I absolutely love this stuff! It’s SPF 50+ and PA++++ so it has great sun protection and the formula also feels so great on the skin! Not heavy like the American sunscreens! It only comes in one size however, which is kind of a bummer. I like the current size for traveling as its small and easy to carry, but I wish I came in a bigger tube that I can leave at home, since I use it every day and go through it faster than I’d like. However, it’s pretty affordable, so I don’t mind having to purchase it often.

I have also used up a few lip balms recently.

IMG_1352

First is the Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, which is my all-time favorite lip balm! I always have one with me and I usually buy it in multiples so that I have backups, lol. I think this is one of those products you either love or hate, and I absolutely love it!

Next is a mini size of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15. I thought this lip balm was pretty good, it was quite moisturizing and had SPF, which I really appreciate! It smells really good too! However, I’m not sure if I can justify the cost of buying this again. A full sized tube is $22 and I still prefer my Burt’s Bees lip balm as it has a longer lasting power. So I probably won’t be purchasing this again, but if you get a small mini size it’s definitely worth trying for yourself! I know some people swear by it!

Next up is a few skincare items. Some I purchase regularly and one was actually a free sample I got a while back.

IMG_1353

First I’ll talk about the free sample! This is the Shiseido Benefique NT Cleansing Foam. I enjoyed this product, as it was meant for those with dry skin, like myself! It didn’t leave me feeling like my skin was super tight after use and it had a really pleasant smell. The downside is that this line is difficult to find in the U.S. The Benefique line is only found in certain Shiseido boutiques, typically near Asian markets, which is how I got this sample. Because it’s difficult to find, I’m probably not going to repurchase this and stick to cleansers I have already, haha.

The other skincare items are two Clinique products, the All About Eyes eye cream and the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. I love both of these products and have already repurchased them many times over the past few years. The lotion is my favorite moisturizer and I love that Clinique’s products have no added fragrance, as I have sensitive skin and have to be careful with what I use.

The last group of items are two trial-sized makeup removers, Clinique’s Take The Day Off and Lancome’s Bifacil.

IMG_1354

I get tons of these little trial sized makeup removers as gifts with purchase, so I haven’t had to actually buy a makeup remover in years, haha. I’ve used both of these multiple times and I find they both work pretty well at removing my eye makeup. I feel like they are both pretty similar, but if I had to buy one I might get the Clinique remover, since it’s considerably cheaper ($18.50 vs. $39!).

That’s it for this round of used-up products! Have you guys used any of these? What have you used up recently? Let me know in the comments!

 

echoice Pure Lily & Shea Butter Hand Therapy Review

Hello everyone!

This post is long overdue, but I thought it would be worth writing anyways.

Today I’m going to review the echoice Pure Lily & Shea Butter Hand therapy! I got this as part of the Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! Memebox and my first impression of this hand cream wasn’t really all that great. It seemed way too floral for me to use, but I’m happy to say that after using it more, I don’t get headaches from the fragrance! Yay!

IMG_1090IMG_1091

This hand cream has a very strong floral fragrance which is pleasant, but some people might not like it. It does fade away after a while too.

It is a slightly thick hand cream that is quite moisturizing, so I find that I have been using it more frequently than I expected! And the size of this cream (60g!) is great for the price! I found it on eBay for $5 (which is more than Memebox said it was worth, but still reasonable). I’ve paid a lot more for hand creams that are only 30g, so I think this hand is a great value if you enjoy the scent!

The Verdict: I’m really happy with this hand cream! Once I knew the smell wouldn’t bother me, I’ve been really pleased with it! I don’t know if I’ll but it again since I like to try new hand creams, but I’ll definitely use this up! I would just be wary of the smell for those who are sensitive.

Have any of you tried this hand cream? What are your favorites? Let me know in the comments!
