[Haul 2#] Sasa & Beautybay.com!

Hello everyone, it has been a while since my last haul post. I don't actually tend to buy make up or cosmetics all that often, so these hauls will be at most, once every month or so. I also do have a tendency to lean towards more skin care based products, which is why you'll be seeing them more often ^_^" Without further ado, let's begin with the purchases!

From Left to Right: Juju Aquamoist Foaming Cleanser, My Beauty Diary Japanese Cherry Blossom Sheet Masks (10 Pack).

Juju Aquamoist Foaming Cleanser: I absolutely love this facial cleanser guys, and this is my second repurchase of it. It is perfect for my dry skin, but in all honesty I think it'd be great for all skin types. It's so amazingly gentle, and always leaves my skin looking so much more hydrated and refreshed. I like the pump and foam formula since it's so easy to use and hygienic. It is perfect for an everyday cleanser since it does not leave the skin feeling stripped of it's natural oils. Not to mention the fact that it very affordable, and lasts a long time. A definite must in my skin care routine!

My Beauty Diary Cherry Blossom Sheet Mask: My experience with My Beauty Diary sheet masks so far have been pretty good, and this is my second sheet mask pack that I've purchased from them. The first was the Strawberry Sheet Mask, which I really liked. The packaging of this was so pretty, and I'm an absolute sucker for cherry blossoms - so of course, I had to try it out next. I will let you guys know what my thoughts on it are!

From Left to Right: Suisse Programme Free Sample, Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Peeling Gel (120mL), Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Repair Pack (80mL), Laneige Water Sleeping Pack (80mL), Dolly Wink Pencil Sharpener.

If you guys can't tell, then I'm quite a fan/lover of Laneige skin care products! I have yet to have a bad experience with any of them, and I do have to say that I have a lot of favourite skin care products from this brand.

Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Peeling Gel: I have used this once so far, and I do have to say that I really like it. It's an exfoliator, but a lot more gentle than the ones I've used before (St. Ives Apricot Scrub). The micro beads are very small and fine, and is great for people with sensitive skin. It does not feel abrasive whatsoever, in comparison to the St. Ives one, which can be quite irritating on the skin at times. Not to mention the fact that it smells great!

Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Repair Pack: I bought this together with the Peeling Gel, since they're suppose to work in conjunction with one another. After exfoliating/cleansing, I apply a thin layer of this stuff, and leave it on for around 20-30mins. I noticed that my skin was noticeably brighter and smoother. Definitely a great product, when used together with the Peeling Gel!

Laneige Water Sleeping Pack: I've already done a review of this product, which I will link here. I won't ramble on about how amazing it is, since I already have in a previous post :) I actually purchased this one for my mum to try, so it sadly wasn't for me this time round ^_^"

Dolly Wink Pencil Sharpener: I was quite intrigued by this sharpener, so I decided to purchase it. It claims to give you a "perfect point" and the packaging was just oh so cute, I simply couldn't resist. It has a little peep hole at the top which allows you to see how much of your eyeliner you have sharpened. I do have to say I'm not impressed so far, as my Dolly Wink Pencil Liner broke twice when using this. I don't want to say this is a bad product, so I'll continue using it and see how that goes.

From Left to Right: Urban Decay Primer Potion (Full Size), Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.

Oh, the famous and highly raved about Urban Decay products. I live in Australia, so these were quite difficult to get a hold of. After a friend's suggestion, I decided to give beautybay.com a whirl. I do have to say that the site isn't half bad, since it does allow free shipping worldwide. The prices are decent, and the postage of the product is quite fast. However, it took me literally a month to receive my package, but I can't complain since it was free shipping after all.

The package it came in was neatly sealed, which I liked. I have been wanting to try the Urban Decay Primer Potion since forever, because I have monolids and every single eyeliner smudges on me - even the most raved about ones! We shall see if it lives up to its reputation, hm? I had trouble deciding between the Naked Palette and the Naked 2 Palette since they're both so similar and have great reviews.

I eventually decided on the Naked 2 since the colours are more subtle and toned down. I don't think I suit heavier eye-shadow, or smoky eyes since it looks as though I just got punched haha. Or maybe it's just me?

But yeah, that brings us to the end of my July Haul :) :)  Please let me know if you guys like reading these, or would like to see more hauls in future. I will be reviewing all of these products individually in future, so be on the look out for them!
