Haru’s Product Haul: February – March 2014 (The Body Shop, Tony Moly, Missha, Etude House, Skinfood, EOS, Stilla and Victoria’s Secret)

A gloomy summer day everyone! It’s been EXTREMELY HOT here on my side of the planet for the last few weeks. And today, as I came home from work, it’s very gloomy – for summer, at least. It’s been raining like cats and dogs on the other parts of the country. But here in one of the CBD’s, it’s been scorching. So it’s very nice to have a cloudy/gloomy morning, once in a while. I know a lot of yo would trade in your Gotham City for my city. Summer’s such a perfect beach weather, except that you’re not in the beach. Aww. ūüė¶


And another way to brighten up one’s make-up fan day is with a haul!

Haru‚Äôs Product Haul: August – November 2013 (Tony Moly, The Body Shop, Benefit and Shu Uemura)

Off blog, work has been strenuous. So strenuous that I don’t get a chance to post.


And I even didn’t get to celebrate my birthday that much. I didn’t even feel the Christmas cheer, except the sale, Christmas rush and the cold breeze. Sigh! I NEED a break.


And because of my stress, I have been taking advantage of the sales. Yehey Christmas Season!

Product Haul: March – June 2013 (Etude House, Missha, Nature Republic, The Body Shop and Benefit)

I know, I know. I’ve been so absent lately. So long hiatus in posting here! It’s not that I’m lazy. I’m so swamped with work for since April til June, with my long-awaited promotion is in jeopardy. It’s a make-or-break, so I had to allocate time.



But since I’m in somewhat calm waters right now (or burned out to do anything), I’ve decided to finally post. When I wasn’t posting, it doesn’t mean I’m not trying out stuff. I did try a lot of stuff (which adds more backlog than I already have). And I hauled. A LOT. Last haul I posted was last January, which makes such a good time to show my hauls since March til June.

The Body Shop: Vitamin E Cool BB Cream Review

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share this item with you today. Even if I had loads of items have to do. And the backlogs that should go here first than this item. But I just had to share it just now!


Yesterday noon, I received an invitation via SMS from The Body Shop. Yes, I am a LYB (Love your body) member so I get these a lot. But this one was an invitation to take home The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Cool BB Cream. All I had to do was reply a “yes” and to which location. They cited 2: SM Megamall for today while Trinoma for tomorrow. So of course I said yes since I’m so near Megamall!


So now, here it is!

The Body Shop: Olive Oil – Dry Oil Mist Review

If my face is combi (oily/normal or normal/dry), the rest of my skin would be dry to extremely dry. In fact, it’s so dry that you can write your name on it. So moisturizing¬†is very important. But as I had told you previously, I am very lazy when it comes to¬†moisturizing¬†most of the time.


One of the products I used since way back was The Body Shop’s Olive Oil – Dry Oil Mist. And this is all thanks to my mom.


So when the store had a sale, I just had to grab this. Hello, 40% off!

The Body Shop: Cranberry Shimmer Lip Balm Review

This is a very, very old The Body Shop product. This is one of my backlogs, 2 years ago.


Back in college, I needed an everyday lip balm. That smelled (and tasted) good. That can add a little color. That’s just it. It doesn’t have to be complicated, like the ones I have now. I was influenced by a friend of mine with her Strawberry flavored lip balm, that she’s almost finished. She let me try out her lip balm and I liked it.

(Photo op came in late, so the label’s in a pretty bad condition)

Make-Up Haul: August 2012 – Mid-September 2012

I am going to be busy soon. My new boss just talked to me so it kinda ate up my time for today’s blog.

I’d like to share with you my recent hauls. So this is some stuff you’d be expecting that will pop-up soon, after I’ve finished my backlogs.¬†I won’t be posting prices, by the way. I’ll show them once I get to review them. I don’t have a consolidated photo of them since I was in a hurry to take photos. I’m hiding this stash from the authorities (a.k.a. parents).
