Hong Kong Haul

Hi guys! I'm back with a quick haul. My mom just came back last night from a 1 month trip to Hong Kong. I wished I could've went with her but I had intense tennis practices so I had to back out of that. Nonetheless, my mom brought back a lot of clothing and a few cosmetic/skincare products. (thankyou mom!!) But for now, I will just do this haul on the cosmetic/skincare products.

This is what my mom brought back for me. I am sure you can purchase all these items from Sasa or Bonjour online except the Laneige products and the Missha M Perfect BB cream. Other than that, all items shown here are all online on their websites. I must state that even on the website, their prices on some of these products are still a bit pricier than it actually is when you purchase them in the stores, but they aren't cheaper by much.

Left to right: Laneige Pore Trouble Skin Refiner, Mentholatum Acnes Youth Foam cleanser, Missha M Perfect BB cream #23, Laneige Snow Crystal Dual foundation #23, L'oreal Hyrdofresh Aqua-Essence, Mentholatum Lipice in strawberry and lychee, Clean & Clear oil control film, Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off Mask. 


Left to right: Strawberry Yogurt Mask, Apple Polyphenol Mask, French White Lily Mask and Japanese Hydrangea Mask.

Although the My Beauty Diary Blooming of Beauty mask was made to be limited edition for the Taipei International Flora Expo, it is still widely available for purchase in Bonjour. Sasa doesn't seem to carry them.

Will have more info and future reviews on these products ^_~ thanks for reading!!  

P.S. I just realized how crappy the photo quality are in this post...i'm sorry. I guess it's time for my camera to retire soon.

Review: Epi Magic Facial Hair Remover

Hi Everyone!

I'm here to do my first ever review! (yayyyy!!!) This is a bit nerve racking but here I go...

Today, I am going to be reviewing the Epi Magic Facial Hair Remover.


I purchased mine from Pretty&Cute ( ) for $11.06 plus shipping. Originally, if P&C didn't hold a back to school sale which was 15% off your purchase, it would have costed me $12.55 to get it shipped from Oregon to NorCal. Pretty good saving I must say. Wished I could have purchased more during the sale.

I know some of you may say that I could've purchased it for a cheaper price on ebay but since I'm a girl who is very sceptical about purchasing things online, I rather turn to a site I am most familiar with. Also, I'm a concealed cash payer so I have to send in money and most sites doesn't allow that. But because of P&C's many paying methods, I can finally get my hands on one of these bad boys right here. 

To Use:

You may ask, does it hurt? Well coming from a girl who has a VERY LOW pain tolerance, it was not bad at all. It did not hurt as much as waxing, and it is faster than tweezing. I only recommend you to use this on your upper lip, chin and cheek area. It does not work on plucking the hairs off your brows and I don't recommend that as well.

Overall, I love this product! So worth it! Results will last you 1-2 weeks, but it really depends on the growth rate of your facial hair. Everyone is different. It's pulling the hair out from the roots which is a lot easier on your skin then waxing since waxing is removing the hair and a thin layer of your skin. I suggest this method over waxing anyday! I will never go back to tweezing my upper lip anymore!!! 

removes all facial hair especially my upper lip!

It's a bit awkward trying to turn the handle thingy

If you have any questions about this product, please feel free to comment below! =) thankyou~
