Innisfree VIP Kit September 2016 | Jeju Lava Seawater Edition

September 06, 2016
Hi lovelies, I am so excited to get this Innisfree VIP Kit. I think this is definitely the best VIP Kit I have received from Innisfree so far. Innisfree is a Korean brand that I feel is the most generous with gifts and samples. And so far I have liked many of their affordable and effective skincare and makeups. Thanks Innisfree!





This September 2016 VIP Kit contains 5 products of Jeju Lava Seawater and a 10% promotional coupon for this skincare line. This range is a new skincare line which will be launched in coming Oct 1st. This skincare line claims to provide and boost hydration and moisture, and also prevent anti-aging with precious minerals and pure lava seawater from Jeju.









Products included:
  1. Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Skin (50 ml)
  2. Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion (50 ml)
  3. Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater  Essence (15 ml)
  4. Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Deep Essence (15 ml)
  5. Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Cream (20 ml)



Correct order to use: Skin - Essence/ Deep Essence (choose one) - Lotion - Cream.



First Impression of the products:
  • Packaging: I love the blue tone, they look expensive and elegant in the blue bottles. 
  • Product Effectivity: I have tried them for a few days and I quite like all of them. They are lightweight and not very sticky for my oily skin and indeed my skin is well hydrated after.
  • Smell: They smell like most of Innisfree products, that fresh tangerine lemony smell. 
  • Price: I believe it is ranging from RM 70-140.

For those of you who have tried out this range, please share with me what you think of them in the comment box below.

I shall talk to you soon, bye-bye.


3 Online Beauty Stores That Ship Internationally

September 01, 2016
This post is dedicated to girls out there who are just like me who are living miles away from US or Canada. I guess many of you have experienced difficulties and inconvenience to get your hands on beauty products especially drugstore products that are only available in US or UK. And today I would like to share with you guys where I normally buy most of beauty products that I can't find here in Malaysia or Indonesia. 

Here are my top 3 recommended websites that ship internationally:

1. Beauty Bay (www.beautybay.com)

They are always my first stop to find brands that are not available in my country. And I have placed numerous orders with them and I am always satisfied with the service. 

Why do I recommend them?
Firstly, they ship to almost all countries in the world with a very low shipping cost (USD 2.6) and it is  automatically free if you order above USD 20. The shipping usually will take around 2-4 weeks. You can find many coveted brands such as Beauty Blender, Cover FX, Makeup Geek, Mario Badescu, Anastasia Beverly Hills. 

What you have to know: The prices are 15-20 percent higher than original prices but I think it really compensates for the free shipping.

2. Echemist (www.echemist.co.uk)

I like this UK-based online shopping for its wide-range products selections from makeup, fragrances, vitamins, supplements and much more. Also it provides free shipping for orders above RM 116.40, not bad right. Anyway if your order is less than RM 116.40, you will pay only around RM 12-18 for shipping which is still very very affordable coming from halfway across the world. Normally orders will arrive within 3-4 weeks. 

Some brands to check out from this website are European drugstore makeups such as L'oreal Paris, Maybelline, Bioderma, Vichy, Rimmel (all are literally super super affordable, welcome!)

What you have to know: Currency options can be changed on top left. 

3. Cherry Culture (www.CherryCulture.com)

This store ships directly from USA, if you are looking for brands like Milani, LA Girl, LA Colors, NYX, Ardell then you are at the right place, search no more! The prices are very similar as the prices available in US and the shipping is also quite affordable. They charge based on weight. I remembered I paid around USD 12 for shipping fee (4-5 weeks) for 2 lipsticks, 4 pairs of lashes, and 3 concealers that probably weighed 1 KG. 

What you have to know: They are currently down and will return by Fall 2017. 


I hope you'll find this post useful, and I would like to know where do you guys normally shop too. Please leave comments below to share with me and everyone else :)
