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. Continue Reading

My Recent Loot from Korea, Care of Althea (As Usual)

Althea Philippines Review

I remember blogging about Korean dramas and Korean stars in my old college blog (nope, no link haha). I’ve always loved Korean food too though, for the life of me, I cannot memorise the names of the dishes. But recently, I became obsessed with Korean skincare products and makeup.

So for me, it just makes a lot of sense to order directly from Korea (via Althea, of course!). For starters, not all of the products are locally available here. Also, prices are much, much cheaper, not to mention you can earn referral points and rebates!

Without much ado, here’s the latest loot I received from Althea a month ago:
