But hopefully your summer has been fulfilling and full of happy memories! :D

Since it's the last day of the month, it's time for a haul post! I'm sure if I wouldn't have done this post if I didn't receive one of my packages today from my awesome sponsor iamlove-shop/jolse.com, which makes up most of the stuff here, so many thanks to them, and quick post service. ^_^

Here's everything! Except the Etude House Bling in the Sea Sun BB cream, I used the original Sun BB cream as a place holder. xP

Review: Holika Holika Lip Rescue Trio Scrub

Hello Lovelies~
Hope you are all doing fine on this Sunday afternoon!

Today I'm going to be reviewing a lip scrub from Holika Holika! I was hesitant to purchase this product at first from the Holika Holika near where I lived, because it was quite expensive for a small tub of scrub, but I just couldn't leave empty handed. D:

This lip scrub is part of a set of lip care products called the Lip Rescue Trio, which include a moisture lip balm, an essence lip exfoliator, and this lip scrub. I only got the scrub, since I'm curious on how well this would work, as I have never used a lip scrub before!

If you are interested please read on for the full review and photos~ :D
The packaging is quite cute as it depicts some characters vacuuming, mopping and dusting a lip. xD

Review: Vanedo Beauty Friends Pearl Essence Mask

Hi everyone!

I've just finished my midterm today, to relax, I indulged myself with a sheet mask! x)
 So it's time for another mask review! Tralala

This time it's from the brand Vanedo Beauty Friends, which is quite well known for their affordable sheet masks! I got mine from eBay, and there were so many types to choose from. I decided to try the pearl and snail masks. And for today, I am going to review the pearl mask, which promise to be moisturizing, convergence(?), and brightening. I am not sure what convergence mean in this context, but I suppose it's to minimize pores? If you know please do share! ^^

Anyways for the full review and photos please read on~ :D
Peal essence mask! It's suited for all skin types and for all seasons!

Review: OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum [Sponsored]

Hello hello Lovelies! 

Finally I'll be reviewing the famous O.S.T Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum! I received this more than a month ago from WISHTrend and have been using it every night. :D
And I'm pretty sure most of you know about WISHTrend, but if you don't here is my introduction post.
Many beauty bloggers have already reviewed this, and I'm quite late, like always. ^^; So I was really excited to see my results with this serum too!

This OST serum contains Vitamin-C at 20%! And Vitamin-C for the skin has many positive effects, listed on WISHTrend.com, they are whitening, recovering trouble scars, and reducing blackhead. These are very common skin problems that occur in almost everyone, me included. My nose has some blackheads and they are quite stubborn, and lots of sebum. I am also hoping this may fade some of my freckles, if possible. OuO I was really looking forward to the whitening aspect, because I'm quite tan now. xD

Anyways if you are interested please read on for the full review and photos. :3
Eye catching bright red/orange packaging!

Review: Holika Holika Tea Cafe Sweet Milk Tea Mask Sheet

Hello Lovelies!

It's time for another mask review! :D 
I think I'll do a sheet mask review every two reviews now, since I've been going through them really quick. And I want to review all of them. *w*

I recently got some of the new sheet masks from Holika Holika's Tea Cafe line. I just love the packaging, it's so adorable with the hounds-tooth pattern! I only got the Lemon Tea and Sweet Milk Tea types, but there's other ones such as Black Tea, Apple Mint Tea, Rosy Peach Tea and lot's more

I was really excited to try this out, and I used the Milk Tea one first, so if you are interested in this mask please keep reading for the review and photos~ :D

"The moisturizing and nourishing honey and milk protein makes the skin look radiant and luminous"

Review: Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream [Sponsored]

Hello everyone! :D

I feel like I'm getting so tanned this summer, even though I'm wearing tons of sunscreen. *_* 

So I was really happy to get to try this BB Cream from Etude House, because it has SPF50+/PA+++, which is great for sunny days!
Thanks to iamlove-shop aka JOLSE.com for sponsoring me this product to review! You can find my introduction for them on this post here. But basically they are an online Korean cosmetic shop that has an eBay store and their own website, they carry lots of brands 100% genuine, and their prices are very competitive too! And best of all they have free shipping! I just ordered some products from them too. So please check them out. ^^

Anyways, if you are interested Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream review please keep reading for more info and photos!
Cute packaging just like the original Precious Mineral BB Cream, but smaller. It says "Cool Fix" but I don't find anything particularly cooling about this BB cream. :P

Review: My Beauty Diary Caviar Mask

Hello lovelies! :D
How are you all?

Today I have another sheet mask review! I've got a lot of sheet masks recently and I'm trying out them one by one.  I gotta say My Beauty Diary masks are still one of my favourites. *_*

The one I'm going to review today is the Caviar mask.  I've bought the 10 masks box and have almost used all of it,  and gave my mom a couple to try as well.  Although I have heard of Caviar having some sort of benefit for the skin, I've looked it up to find some articles questioning the effectiveness of these "luxury" foods, such as: caviar, truffles, gold etc. on the skin.
But I somehow I doubt if this mask even contain any, since it was so cheap. :P

Anyways if you are interested please read on for the full review and photos.~

The packaging, pretty standard for a MBD mask, but I find the little spoons and caviar so cute. :3

Review: Holika Holika Fairy Water Pure Aqua Skin + Emulsion [Sponsored]

Hello everyone! ^^
How's your summer/winter going so far?
I'm so happy I've reached 100k pageviews, and 300 readers! *A*
Thank you all so much for reading and commenting. ;u; It's really a delightful and relaxing feeling coming home to check on my blog after a stressful day. :3

Anyways, today I have the last product that Holika Holika Canada sent me to review! Finally after more than a month, I'm going to be reviewing this, quite late, but better than never. xP
This is a product that Holika Holika sent to me for review purposes, the review will always be my 100% honest opinion. :D

This two products are meant to be used together, and there's also a cream from this Pure Aqua set (not shown here). The Fairy Water  also comes in the Pure Fresh set, which is more suited for oilier skin types.

I'm currently using this in my morning routine for the past month. Please keep reading for the full review and pictures! :)

Review: Skin Food Facial Water Vita-C (Gel Mask)

Hello hello everyone!
How are you all this week? :D

Sorry I haven't posted in the last few days, I was having some trouble with my laptop's fan, and it caused my laptop to randomly shut down, so it was really a pain to do anything on here. t.t
But I got myself an external fan, so the problem is temporarily fixed now. :) 

Anyways, today I have another sheet mask review!
This one it's quite interesting, since it's a gel type, and this is my first time trying out a gel type sheet mask, so I was really excited to see the effects of this. I have also stumbled upon Sam's review on this mask a few days ago, and she mentioned it was cooling, which I'm really glad since it's so humid and hot here! 
Please read on to see the full review and photos~

The package is the largest of all the sheet masks I have used! I guess it's more difficult to fold a gel mask.
