Haul Post: Korean Beauty Products 2015

December is probably the best time of the year to shop for your favorite Korean beauty products, because most of them are on sale! I love how they drop their prices, to as much as 70% off! I hoard during Decembers so that I could use them for the following year - and I've always been very happy with what I purchase. 

I didn't go crazy last December 2014. In fact, I only managed about half of the box I purchased the other year. I must admit though, I'm still halfway through the stash I purchased last December 2013, but some items were already gone, so obviously, I had to restock. 

And look at what I've got! Tons and tons of Kbeauty products! 

Let me show you the products I bought, one by one. I haven't opened most of them yet, so if there's anything here that you would find interesting, please let me know! I am still contemplating on how to review each and every one of these items!

Anyway, let's get started!

Baviphat Juicy Mask Sheets (Avocado and Grape)

I'm a sucker for sheet masks so I got 10 of each variant. Avocado is for lifting and nourishing, while Grapes is for brightening and lifting. 

Baviphat Woori Rice Mask Sheet (Grain Oatmeal)

I only got six of sheets of these, because the supplier ran out of stock. Anyway, the grain oatmeal variant is for extra moisture and nutrition.

Missha Near Skin Firming Peptide Shaping V Mask 10g

I've always wanted to try Korea's V-Masks. I have very puffy cheeks so I hope this would help. I bought 10 of these as well.

Nature Republic Aqua Collagen Solution V-Lifting Patch 8g

I love most stuff from Nature Republic, so when this mask was on sale, I grabbed the opportunity. Say hello, to my 10 new V-Lifting Patches from Nature Republic!

Skinfood Black Sesame Hot Mask 110g

I'm crazy. I collect masks, and I love them! I haven't used this hot mask from Skinfood, but I do high hopes for this one. Black sesame is an interesting beauty ingredient, too. 

Shara Shara Repair Stem Sleeping Mask 70ml

For the love of masks, I got another sleeping pack! Shara Shara is an excellent brand when it comes to skincare, so really, I couldn't pass off a 30% off deal. I snatched it right away, only to find out later on, that it's going to expire a few months from now. Sadly, I don't think I could empty this sleeping pack before that time comes! 

THE SAEM Urban Eco Harakeke Firming Seed Sleeping Pack 80ml

This is the last mask for this haul, I promise! This is my first The Saem product. I heard that it's a great brand. Truth be told, I didn't care much on what this sleeping pack does; I just love its packaging. Where else could you find a lid designed that way? Isn't it cute?! 

Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener 180ml

I was supposed to receive this item from Memebox's Wine and Cheese box, but for some reason I didn't. True, I was disappointed, but it didn't stop me from obtaining this baby. 

A'PIEU Soft Bubble Cleansing Foam 200ml (Moisture) 

A'Pieu may not be very popular here in the Philippines, but I heard it's a sister brand of the famous Missha. A'Pieu is targeted towards young girls and teenagers though, which is probably why this cleansing foam is sold at a very affordable price. 

Missha Green Tea Powder Wash With Baking Powder 25ea

I have tried a sample size of this product before, and guess what? I love it so, so much! Too bad, this is expiring in a few months, so I have to use them all up in no time! 

Nature Republic Snail Solution Foam Cleanser 150ml

I love snail beauty products, and I love Nature Republic as a brand. I use cleansers all the time, so what could possibly hold me back from purchasing this? 

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Black Head Out Balm 30g

I seriously couldn't remember why I bought this product in the first place. I don't even have an idea on what it does! But since it's Innisfree and it has 'Jeju' on it, it must be something special. I'm going to research on how to use this soon.

TonyMoly Egg Pore Black Head Steam Balm 30g

Here's another balm that caught my interest, but this time, it's from Tonymoly. I kind of like heating balms from Tonymoly. In fact, I love the Tonymoly Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-in Sugar Scrub, which basically functions probably the same way as this balm. I hope this makes sense. I'll let you know once I get to use this for a period of time. 

Tonymoly Strawberry Jam Sugar Scrub 90ml

Obviously, I haven't had enough of the Tonymoly facial scrubs. Don't you think this is a cute replacement to my current Tonymoly Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-in Sugar Scrub?

Holika Holika 3 Seconds Starter Collagen 150ml

I have been eyeing this product for a couple of years now. I love anything that has collagen in it. The 3 Seconds Starter is supposed to be applied right after cleansing, then locked in place by a moisturizer. Sounds really interesting, so I had to give this a try. 

Tonymoly Pure Eco Snail Moisture Gel 300ml

This is an impulse buy, but nonetheless, a good one, because it's snail, and it's an all-around gel. MULTI-PURPOSE GEL. My parents need this more than I do, so I had to give this up. 

Skinfood Grape Seed Oil Wrinkle Neck Cream 50g

Memebox introduced me to a neck cream in one of their boxes. I thought it was unnecessary, but after consistent use, I realized that a neck cream could indeed make a difference! Since it's rather difficult for me to look for that very same neck cream, I decided to try for an alternative. So, here's one from Skinfood. 

Nature Republic Bee Venom Treatment Spot 30ml

I only have one spot treatment gel, which was from Memebox. I don't have a backup in case I run out of it, so I had to get one. I'm happy that I got my second treatment gel from Nature Republic. I haven't tried anything that has bee venom in it, but I heard lots of good things about it.

The Saem Mojito Cooling Water Mist 100ml

There was a hype on this apple mojito mist somewhere, so when this came up for sale, I grabbed it as well. 

Shara Shara Ceramide Sake Toner 130ml

I know, I know: the mists that I bought are all 'alcohol' themed. I guess I haven't gotten over the Wine and Cheese box just yet. The truth is, I've always wanted to purchase this toner since I found it on the Memeshop. However, I didn't buy from there, because they disclosed that the products on sale were expiring in a few months. I couldn't take the risk, so I looked elsewhere. Glad I found the same product on sale as well. 

Etude House My Lash Serum

Lash serums are intriguing, aren't they? They are supposed to help your lashes look healthier. I heard they could promote growth of lashes, too. 

I'm thinking of using this regularly during nighttime, but it might take a while for me to fully incorporate it in my routine. 

The Face Shop Lovely me:ex Mangoseed Lip Scrub 12g

Lip scrubs are probably the best solution to chapped and dry lips. I decided to invest on one because I have the issues with my lips, too. 

Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color 10g

All-over color products from Etude House are really interesting. In fact, I love the idea behind that so much that I instantly bought one from an Etude House brick-and-mortar store near our place, but sad to say, I was disappointed - with the pigmentation, the consistency and staying power. I realized later on that I also bought a separate one in another shade. This one will go to my younger sister, who's still experimenting with makeup. 

Etude House Play 101 Pencil

Innisfree Eye Primer

Holika Holika Cover and Hiding Stick Concealer

Have you ever heard of Pony, the Korean Makeup Artist? I watch her tutorials a lot, and I remember her using the Etude House Play 101 Pencil and the Innisfree Eye Primer. I think I spotted a Holika Holika Stick Concealer as well. I guess I'm a Pony wannabe. Haha. 

I haven't swatched these goodies yet, but I'll try in my upcoming reviews! 

Too Cool For School Marshmallow Puff

Beautyblender is a very popular makeup tool, but not everyone could afford it. I couldn't afford it as well, so I just settle for dupes, such as this one right here. I personally think it's cute, but I haven't used it yet, so I have no idea how well it improves makeup application. 

The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Tissue in 20 Sheets

This is another impulse buy, as I am obviously in no need for another pack of cleansing tissues. Nonetheless, it's supposed to be a staple, so I might use this over time. This is my first Korean cleansing tissue, by the way. 

Nature Republic Snail Solution Special Set (4 Items)

This is the STAR and the most expensive item in this haul. I'm crazy on snail and Nature Republic so I had to give in despite the high price. As you could see, it contains four items, 1 Booster in 120ml and 1 Emulsion in 120ml, and another pair of booster and emulsion in 31 ml each. I guess this should go well with the Nature Republic Snail Solution Cleanser I posted above. 

Finally! I'm done with my haul post!
