Messy Haul: My First BeautyMNL Loot

BeautyMNL Review

I’ve been lurking around BeautyMNL since, I don’t know, last year?

But for some reason, I’ve never made an order there because I gravitate toward Korean products and I get my K-beauty fix from Althea — Korean products are much much cheaper there.

This time, though, I was in dire need of micellar water (regular toner is too strong for my skin) as well as some cheap but good dry shampoo (because sometimes, honestly? I don’t have to time to shower before taking Yuri to school). There’s dry shampoo on Althea but no micellar water so I thought of checking out BeautyMNL.

Love at first delivery: I am so loving the packaging — it’s ziplock!

I was originally planning on getting the Japanese brand, Biore, but then I discovered the my fave (next to e.l.f.) drugstore brand Maybelline has cheaper micellar water. I wanted to try both but decided to go with Maybelline for now.

Of course, I also bought dry shampoo for days I just can’t shower before going out. Here’s my BeautyMNL loot – with the reviews I left on the website for each of them.

1. Maybelline Micellar Water 4-in-1 (P199)

BeautyMNL Review

Here’s my review on BeautyMNL:

I mainly use this as makeup remover or a precursor to my foam cleanser. I love that it doesn’t sting at all even in the eyes but it effectively removes my makeup and cleanses my face. I know it also serves as a toner but I still prefer to use another toner. But in a pinch, you can use it as a solo face cleanser!

I often use this after I use my Banila Co Clean It Zero cleansing balm.

2. Made By David Organics Orange-Vanilla Dry Shampoo (P199)

BeautyMNL Review

Here’s my review on BeautyMNL:

The first thing that I noticed about this product is the smell. I’m sensitive to strong scents but the orange-vanilla scent of this dry shampoo is just perfect! And when I apply it on my hair, it immediately feels softer and smoother. Plus it looks bouncy the whole day! The only thing I dislike about it is the dispenser. This comes in a container/ dispenser similar to talc powder’s so sometimes it’s hard to get the product out. I would’ve loved a spray or pump. But it’s a really small negative!

3. Sooper Beaute Cell Renewal Cream (P100)

BeautyMNL Review BeautyMNL Review

Here’s my review on BeautyMNL:

Okay at first, I didn’t read the instructions and immediately applied it liberally on my face. It stung! I learned that you should use only a tiny amount of it and you cannot use it everyday. Since learning that, aside from only applying a thin layer, I also use it as spot treatment for the annoying bumps on my face. Good news – they’re now almost gone!

4. Skinlite Cucumber Deep Cleansing Peel-Off Mask (P70)

BeautyMNL Review

Here’s my review on BeautyMNL:

Honestly I don’t understand why this is rated highly. After squeezing it into my palm, I was immediately turned off by the overpowering smell. Reminds me of those liquid plastic balloons we used to buy in first grade! I was afraid to put it on my face but I still decided to give it a chance. After peeling it off, there was no immediate difference in my skin. I was under the impression that it cleanses the pores but I didn’t see any gunk in the peeled off mask. Also, I didn’t feel moisturised at all. 🙁 I’ll stick to my Korean masks next time! (The only upside? It’s fun to peel.)

5. Skinlite Intensive Shine & Hydrate Hair Treatment (P50)

BeautyMNL Review

Here’s my review on BeautyMNL:

The most awesome thing about this product is the price. It is so cheap you can afford salon-like quality treatment every week! It’s very effective too. I have thick and frizzy hair but the treatment works really well in taming it. My hair feels so soft and smooth each time!

I got a tube of Ponds BB cream and a bar of Lux bath soap as freebies with my order. I cannot use any soap with strong fragrance so I didn’t have any choice but to give the Lux bar away. Here’s the Ponds BB cream.

BeautyMNL Review

I actually like using Ponds BB cream as my regular BB cream. In fact, I have a supply of Ponds BB cream in my makeup box because I buy 3 or 4 tubes each time they go on sale. But the ones I hoard are not the same as this particular freebie; the ones I buy is the Flawless White variant in a deeper shade. Still, I have high hopes for this particular freebie because I can always mix it with dark BB cream or foundation.

    The Skinlite Intensive Shine & Hydrate Hair Treatment sounds interesting, especially for someone like me who can’t afford weekly spa treatments because I dedicate weekends to my little girl.

  • Reply Michi October 3, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    I’m also curious with dry shampoo. I haven’t tried it but I think this is a good option if you are going to travel, (long haul flight). Yun nga lang lagpas sa 100ml na limit. hehehe!

    Wow! I have been wanting to shop at BeautyMnl for weeks now. Actually, I already have something in the list, I just need to complete to be able to save for shipping. That cucumber peel off mask is interesting. I’d love to try that hair treatment as well.

    Omergawd! I don’t even know that there’s such as what you call dry shampoo. I’m really such a basic, hahaha. I love how specific you are with all your reviews. You gave me an idea of what are those for, even though I don’t really know them nor try them.

    I ordered some items from BeautyMNL few weeks ago too. I like that they deliver fast plus there are a lot of products to choose from in their website. I got some Leaders mask 🙂

    I want to try dry shampoo soon too. Makaorder nga 🙂

  • Reply Janice October 6, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    Interesting choices of products. When I shopped at BeautyMNL I only bought make-up because that’s what I needed that time. I love how fast their shipping is here.

    Oooh, I am curious about that dry shampoo. I’ve never tried one before but I will need it after I give birth when there is no taking a bath for a long period of time! Hay, it’s a good thing they have it online. I’ll just order when the time comes. 🙂

  • Reply May Palacpac October 7, 2016 at 9:22 am

    Oh no, what do you mean the cream stung? As in masakit? Anyway, thanks for the tip. I won’t buy that facial mask. Can you recommend another brand? Gusto ko rin sana yung napi peel tapos makikita ko sa pineel ko yung deep seated dirt and whiteheads and blackheads. 🙂

    I will also check out this site. Grabe, napapagastos ako ah! Beauty has a price!

    • Reply Maan October 9, 2016 at 6:07 pm

      Hindi naman super sakit, the effect is similar to astringent’s? And yeah, only buy that mask if you’re into plastic balloon smell and feel!

      I buy masks from Korean brands – so far I’ve never encountered one that didn’t work! As for peel-off ones, I’m still on the hunt for a good one! 😀

  • Reply Jerzee Benavente October 7, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Been hearing about BeautyMLA and looks like they have many happy customers. I checked their website and saw that they have pretty awesome variety of beauty stuff. Naku, pera lang talaga nauubos.. Tinda lang ang hindi..hahaha! Nakakacurious yung dry shampoo..

    I am interested in Cell renewal cream, do you try it na ba? Will look for this one. I also love BeautyMNL easy transaction no hassle

  • Reply Kati Balayan October 8, 2016 at 5:06 am

    Nice haul! I’ve been eyeing the Maybelline Micellar Water as well since it’s very affordable! I think also for facial masks,it’s a hit and miss talaga. Kaya when you find something that’s hiyang sayo, better to be faithful to it 🙂

  • Reply Maria Teresa Figuerres October 8, 2016 at 3:41 pm

    I haven’t tried using dry shampoo before. Like you, there are times, although very rare, that I need to leave the house right away like when my son needs something in school that I forgot to place inside his bag. That Orange & Vanilla dry shampoo is such a lifesaver!
