Hello ~ I’m back with another monthly haul. This time I’m on normal time and not as late as usual – I hope? Anyhow today I’m here to show you guys what I’ve bought during the month of August 🙂
LUMENE Arctic Spring Water Enriched Facial Mist (100 ml)
I bought this one to try out because I’ve seen so many Finnish beauty bloggers rave about this. I personally think that it’s nothing special. First off the spray system is weird and it doesn’t spray that well. It sprays well when I spray it on air but when I try to aim the spray on my face idk where it goes – not on my face that’s for sure. And the scent is quite strong as well. I’m gonna stick with my Avene water and Korean sprays. Not going to buy this one again unless they makes it scentless and makes the spray system so that it sprays continuously and not so that I have to pump the button like 15 times and none of that aims on my face… Am I using this wrong? Or do I just have some fail product?
IROHA Nature Black Tissue Detox Anti-Blemish Mask (1 sheet)
I saw this one at the counter and checked out the inci and it didn’t have alcohol in it so I picked this up. I used it this week and it was sooo nice ! Smelled so nice and left my face so bright and plump afterwards. Not to mention it fit my face perfectly ! I’d totally recommend this sheet mask.
ETTANG Peel Off Cup Pack (17 g)
This is why I went to Sokos Emotion in the first place. I read from Finnish FB group dedicated for K-Beauty that they are selling these masks in the stores. As a fan and supporter of K-beauty I had to show my support and picked up two of their cup masks. I think there were 4 or 6 options to choose from. I chose Peppermint which is for soothing & refreshing effect. Has teatree leaf powder and peppermint oil. I also picked up Calendula which is meant to moisturize and calm the skin. These were 4,50€ per one and online these are about 4$ so I’d say it’s not THAT BIG price difference as usual but still it’s obviously more expensive in Finland than online – not to mention if I were to buy this from Korea. But I’m more than glad to support K-beauty brands that are landing to Finland. Maybe one day I can buy Etude House and Innisfree products straight from the store? Maybe? I hope so 🙂
I ordered the whole line in travel sized products back in April and I really like them. I think my skin has calmed down a lot after I started to use this line. So I decided to repurchase the emulsion in travel size because it lasted for about 4-5 months in my use. I hesitated between full size and travel size but went with travel size because the packaging is hard plastic which makes it quite difficult to get the product out. So I always have to shake it a lot to get it out even tho this is still full. If it had pump I would’ve went with the full size.
I liked the toner as well so I bought it again. This one I bought in full size because I finished the travel sized toner in 2 weeks or so. I’ve already used about 25% of this. But I can only blame my cotton pads for soaking up so much product… Should buy better cotton pads again…
I’ve always wanted to try Laneige cushions and finally bought myself one ! It was on sale and comes with a refill also. So it was now or never LOL ! It’s still 30% on sale as I’m writing this post so grab yours before the sale is over ! I bought this one in #21 Beige and I haven’t even opened this one yet. I’m going to do a review on this and I just pray this fits my skin tone well. I have yet to even take the photos so that’s why I haven’t opened it. But I will do a review of this. Someday !
LOL I know I said I’d review this cushion – I still will – but I finished it so fast ! I realized that the photos I had taken weren’t good quality so I have to take the before after photos again. And I like the product so I bought it again 🙂 So wait for the review for this one as well.
I bought the one in #PK013 from Seoul last year (click here to see my Korea Trip haul) and I liked the product so much. I finally finished it so I decided to order two different shades to try out. This time I got darker shades for the upcoming autumn. I got the shades #OR207 Very/Berry Orange Drink and #PK014 Very/Berry Cherry To Go this time. As this line was 2016 S/S collection I think these are left only on online stores now. Maybe they will clear out these soon and make room for the new products? Anyway I personally really like these ! Just FYI the shades are actually darker and much more pigmented than the swatches on Cosmetic Love site shows.
And the samples I got with my order. I’m so glad I got some samples of that Pink Vital Water Serum because I’ve wanted to test it but haven’t wanted to buy it before testing. I’ll have to see how the samples are and see if I want to order the product sometimes soon 🙂
