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. 😦


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

Etude House: Silk Scarf Hair Shampoo Review

There was a time early this year that I began realizing that I am purchasing so much make-up that I don’t even use (still got tons of untouched make-up stored away in my box). Likewise with skin care! So I started rationalizing my purchases. So I began buying hair care products. Given the limitation that Etude House here in my country, I was only able to get this.


Etude House’s Silk Scarf Hair Shampoo!

Etude House: Silk Scarf – Hologram Hair Serum Review

Don’t you just hate it when your hair is all frizzy and has this off scent when it’s already noon? I had that in mind when I got Etude House’s Silk Scarf Hologram Hair Serum. IMG_0115 Or was I just putting out reason to buy this?

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.

Product Haul: February – March 5, 2013 (Missha, Nature Republic, Etude House and Skinfood)

I know I haven’t been posting lately – work, personal life, and health issues. Been sick for the past few days, and such a horrible timing too!

Since I’m sick, I don’t normally try new items. Most of my skin care is currently at HG items (except for facial wash, hehe!). Likewise to some make-up.


However, what I was busy to for the past few days was hauling items. Yes, hauling. And almost every week, I would get something off the store.


See what are my recent hauls!

Etude House: Follow me Tint SPF 13 in #1 Vary Pink Review

Good sunny day to everyone! It’s a good Saturday noon that there seems nothing for me to do. Which is so odd. I would like to go out and frolic somewhere – like eat in a good Japanese resto I’m eyeing at. Sadly, I’m stuck at home. So I decided to put in a review. Afterall, when was my last review?


In love, no matter how much you like the person but it seems that you aren’t a good match. And what’s left of you to do is to let go. And this is EXACTLY how I felt with Etude House’s Follow Me Tint SPF 13 #1 Pink.

Product haul: January 24, 2013 (Tony Moly and Etude House)

If there’s another thing my pocket hates aside from color-changing cosmetics, sales, reach this amount and you’ll get stuff for free, and limited edition, it’s the “last one in stock, and we don’t know when we’ll restock” item. And that is the whole reason my haul last week inflated to this one.


Aside from the fact that I’m stressed and all.




Yes, huge and bulging out. Just imagine how I manage to sneak this in.  Continue reading “Product haul: January 24, 2013 (Tony Moly and Etude House)”

Product Haul: November 26, 2012

Hello everyone! I was so happy that I was able to home early last Monday (compared to my previous days) that I went straight to the mall and bought some stuff.

See my modest haul?

Etude House: OMG! Dry Shampoo Review

Hi everyone! How are you lately? I’ve gotten home  early morning awhile ago, around 1:30AM. And imagine how light-headed I am now – I’ve slept for only 3-4 hours. >.< I do hope we won’t go home that late tonight/early for tomorrow. The new deadline is fast approaching (and it won’t be moving, too bad) and there are still some bugs in the system. Ugh.


On the good side of things, I am very much anticipating on our vacation. It’s less than a month away. Weee! I booked to another hotel yesterday over the budget one I had previously booked since I will be paying for the transfers and the comfort. Mental note: pay for this by the end of this week! Or later, if via credit card. :))) So excited!!!!! I’ve stepped into the soil of 4 countries, but this is my first time to go to this popular to both locals and foreigners beach location. Ah, white sand, warm sun and cool breeze while the rest of the northern hemisphere is freezing to bits. 😀



The product I chose to review today is something that you can use on travels, especially when you feel your hair is oily and you don’t have access to places where you can take a shower. It’s a dry shampoo!



When I went to Etude House few weeks/months ago, they had a sale (as usual). I was supposed to pick up just the tint, but since this was the last stock on the shelf, and I would always look at this when I was at the store, I had to get it.

You know me, out-of-the-ordinary objects grab my money attention.  Continue reading “Etude House: OMG! Dry Shampoo Review”

Etude House: Aloha Two Two Kiss in #1 Hawaii Ray Pink and #3 Tropical Lime Red Review

Happy Monday everyone! I finally got both of my weekends for myself and not for work. Yipee! Bad part is I got sick. It started to be a sore throat last Friday night, and now it’s grown to be a cough. Great. And should the extreme overtime continue, I might have to avail a sick leave by the end of the week. On the bright side, I finally get to use my mascara from Majolica Majorca and my blush and eyeshadow from Beauty Credit. You should see them soon, still need to further use them to produce good reviews. 🙂


Since I want to create a cheerful atmosphere despite my current state, I shall be posting about Etude House’s Aloha Two Two Kiss. Now doesn’t that sound so vacation-like?

No real motive why I bought them other than they look so darn good and unique. And it’s rare to find a yellow and blue gloss. These two had been sticking around my make-up bag for the longest time.
