I’m slowly climbing out of the mountain of boxes and bags containing beauty products from post-holiday clearance hauls. So begins Hauluary 2017. XD
First up, my Korean beauty hauls from 2 places: Holika Holika and Ibbi Beauty.
I discovered an actual Holika Holika bricks and mortar store so I bought a few things. I’m sure I overpaid for all of these but it was fun to shop in person and test these products rather than shopping online.
Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream in #2 Aqua Natural – I’ve heard such great things about this. It even comes with its own blending sponge!
Gudetama Lazy & Easy All Kill Sheet Cleansing Tissue & All-in-one Mask Sheet – just look at him! 😆 Holika Holika has a whole Gudetama collection with lots of fun stuff including makeup.
Gudetama Lazy & Easy All Kill Cleanser Oil to Foam – I was also pleased the SA was so knowledgeable about this product that she was able to advise me it’s olive oil-based! It’s a cleansing oil that emulsifies into a foam – very different from any cleansing oil that I’ve tried.
Make-up Starter – I didn’t know what this was when I bought it but after some online research I now know that it’s a single-use primer pad to be used before makeup.
False lashes – not really sure when I’d wear these but they looked pretty natural and they were less than $5
Magic Pole Eyeliner 2X in 02 Brown – I was overcome by the holographic packaging. I don’t want to pre-judge but I think this might turn out to be a gimmick with that ball at the end of the felt tip – there’s no way I’d get a fine line with that. But c’mon, it’s a Magic Pole! XD
• Aloe 99% Soothing Gel x2
• Smooth Egg Skin Peeling Gel
• Skin & Good Cera Ultra Emulsion x2
I’ve never ordered from this site but I saw that they were having a 20% off site-wide sale in celebration of… the impeachment of the South Korean President! 😆 That’s the funniest reason for having a sale that I’ve ever seen so I jumped on it. I picked up:
Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask in Hyaluronic Acid, Snail, Green Tea, Honey, Pearl, Rose etc etc. In total, I stocked up on 15 of these masks. They’re my new favourite sheet masks!
A’Pieu Tangle Jelly Mask in Mango (x1), Grape (x1)- these intrigued me because they’re supposed to be stretchy clear masks (kind of like hydrogels?). And I’m super psyched about the grape mask. I love grape flavoured stuff.
Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer Volume Up Curl Fix x4 – my HG mascara base
Clio Waterproof Brush Liner in Kill Brown – I’ve heard this raved about online and it’s quite inexpensive too. It came with a free little bottle of makeup remover.
• It’s Skin Clinical Solution AC Cleansing Foam
• It’s Skin Power 10 Formula WH Effector x2
• A’Pieu Pure Medic Purity Lotion
• It’s Skin Mangowhite Cleansing Foam
Have you tried any of these Korean beauty items? I’m excited to try them especially the Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream and the Clio liner!
