Jolse Korean Cosmetic Store Haul

I was very impressed by Jolse's shipping. Compare to my last 3 orders from various Korean Cosmetic Store, this one is the only one with packaging that wasn't falling apart.

Although, I spend the least amount of money (compare to the other orders I placed in other stores) it came with the most samples too. Also came with the nose thingy as a gift for buying $20 worth of items.

It was really easy to order on Jolse. Also, their site works well on iPad (a big plus from me because I love shopping on my iPad while I am laying in bed being lazy).

Price: Although, the products on the site do charge more than other Korean beauty site, but it offer free shipping. It is great when I want to place small order like this one. I got AC Spot Control thingy from It's Skin and a AC spot pen thingy. I do like both products so far.

Shipping: I am happy with the shipping. I know it will take around 15 days to get to me. my only complaint is "free" shipping do not include tracking number. If I want tracking number I had to pay extra. Which I decided not to because if I had to pay extra for tracking, I might as well buy from another site.

Order placed date: September 1st
Shipping tracking received date: September 3rd
Package received date: September 18th

Final thought: Overall, I like my shopping experience from Jolse and will order from them again.

Memebox Special #37 Wake Up Makeup Spoiler

When I opened this box, I was a little disappointed. I know it is a makeup box but it just didn't wow me at all. Yes some packaging is cute but something feels missing. Good thing there was a bonus gift in there to make this box better. Maybe I am being too hard on this box because I am overwhelm by how amazing the My Honey Box is.

Anyway, I picked up this box because I needed to bundle it to have express shipping for my honey box, not for the box itself. I know it is kinda of bad of me to pick up a box knowing that I will not use the products inside. You see, I am not a makeup person.... My usual makeup is only CC Cream and lipstick because it takes like 2 min max. I think I am just too lazy to spend the time on it. However, don't worry I have a girl friend that can make good use of them.

The box is a lot smaller than our usual Memebox. I guess it make sense because most products inside are just makeup items. Some of the items inside the box is pretty adorable. Specially the Babyface Young Girl Gel Eye Liner. They even put wings on it. Its really cute.

Product List:

  1. Bbia Downy Cheek
  2. It's Skin Babyface Young Girl Gel Eye Liner- 02 Purple Black
  3. Royal Nature The Original Soothing Blemish Balm
  4. Shara Shara Creamy Dual Auto Eye Stick
  5. Cheek Room Two Color Lip Gloss
  6. Shara Shara Glitter Pearl Powder

Memebox Superbox #53 My Honey Box Spoiler and Review

I was really excited when I picked up the box at the front desk yesterday. I think I rushed home as soon as I got off work. Of course, the security guys teased about the Memebox advertisement on the box. It is actually a little embarrassing; "World's #1 beauty store". I wonder if they have stats to prove that it is the case. Anyhow, it doesn't matter, since I love buying Memeboxes. 

Over all, I really liked this box, it have a lot of things to play with and I adore the smell of honey. Since it is a superbox, everything is full size. So far I tried 2 items in this box and I totally love it.  

Product List:
  1. Migabee Antipollution RE-Peeling
  2. Mi Click Manuka Honey Treatment
  3. Enesti Apple & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream: I love the smell of this hand cream, and it is very moisturizing. It smells like a very sweet apple. Hopefully in the future, I will get to try more from this brand.
  4. From Nature Multi Effect Collagen Honey Mask 
  5. Edmong Honeybee Water Cream
  6. Daycell Essential HOney Lift Massage Cream
  7. Pure Smile Snail Lip Treatment Honey: This is the second pure smile snail lip treatment I received, and I really like it. Although, I know many that dislike this brand. However, I think it does the job.

Memebox Superbox #48 Daily Dose of Beauty Spoiler

I really really like this box. I am glad I purchased it as a filler box to meet the $150 promo code. Too bad the rest of the boxes won't arrive anytime soon. This box have a little of everything and I can tell it will be lots of fun to try all these products out. Everything is full size and it is jam packed. They didn't even use tissue paper. Anyway, each Product in the box is referred to a day of the week and I find it really cute.

Product List:

  1. Monday: Cheek Room Eye Shadow
  2. Tuesday: Sally box Delight Hydrogel Mask x 3 
  3. Wednesday: Yu Choo By Me Steam Silk Hair Pack
  4. Thursday: Grinif Rawganic jojoba Golden Oil
  5. Friday: Croquis Bulgeum Lipstick
  6. Thursday Eglips Jolie BebeLip Treatment
  7. Weekend: S Wrinkle SC Renewal Ampoule
  8. Oddly they have Tuesday again on the product card and this one is D'ran Aqua Wonder Intensive Renewing Serum. I am guessing they wanted to Saturday and Sunday but printed the wrong thing. 

RoseRoseShop Haul

This is from my first purchase from Roseroseshop and it wasn't too bad. I wanted to get some stuff for my friend's birthday coming up (those cute hand creams) and this is the place with the best price. The package came with 4 samples.

The website is a little confusing and it does not work well with my iPad. I cannot go into my cart and pay when I am on my iPad, which sucks. Since anyone that knows me, know that I carry my iPad with me everywhere, and I use apps for everything. Anyway, so I always needs to go to a PC to place a Roseroseshop order.

Prices: I really like the prices on this site, just the shipping cost.... It is stopping me from buying more. The shipping cost is by weight and for some reason, those tiny things in that picture's shipping cost was $13.81 USD.

Shipping: Similar to my WishTrend order, this package was in very bad condition. I find it weird that this is happening because all my Memebox orders, the packages always comes in perfect condition (it is usually Memebox products inside the box is damage).

Anyway, I still remember picking this package up yesterday at my condo front desk, and the security person said "I hope things in there is okay" Yes the package was in a weird shape, and I am surprised nothing is damage when I open the box.

Order Date: August 22nd
Shipping tracking received Date: August 25th
Package Received Date: September 11th

Final thought: Since I have a shopping addiction, I will for sure order from them again because of the price. I can't resist those prices. I just need to convince myself the shipping cost is worth it.

Wishtrend Haul

Well I did a little shopping on Wish Trend recently and decided to share my first impression of this company.

First, I heard about them via an online forum, and decided to give it a try because I really needed those Skinmiso thingy. If you have not try those Skinmiso pore beauty pack, you are missing out a lot. It works and it is painless. Memebox gave me a 3 weeks trail and oddly enough, they didn't carry them in their memeshop, Thus, I had to look for another place that sells it.

Their website is very user friendly and it works great on my iPad. They offer free shipping for purchase over $69.

Price: The prices aren't bad, specially with their beauty steal items and wish box. So far, I have tried all the items you see in this picture, and I am very please with all of the products. They do not give as much free sample as other Korean online companies. Most of those sample packets you see in the picture are not free samples, it is from trail kits I purchase.

The shipping package condition: I was really surprised that nothing in the box was damaged considered the shape of the box was really bad. There were holes in on the cardboard box and the box was like all soft when it got to my door.

Order Date: August 17th
Shipment tracking email received Date: August 21st
Order arrival Date: September 2nd

Final thought: I will most likely buy from them again in the future. Wishtrend offer things that I cannot get in other online store. However, since the packaging was so bad, I will be afraid to try to order things that may break.

Zoya Textured Tuesday Bogo Event

I was really excited to find this promotion email last night in my Junk mail (yes it went into my junk folder). Zoya is having a buy one get one free event for textured nail polish! Best of all, they offer free shipping if you purchased $25 or more. I love their stuff, specially their nail polish remover thingy. It is the best one I have used so far. If you have not try it, try it! Anyhow, this promotion ends on September 7, and you simply have to add 2 or more texture nail polish in your cart and apply code "textues".

Memebox VIP Exclusive - Sept 3 2014

2 new release from Memebox this morning. Each both is currently $3 off until 1pm EST today and if you buy both boxes in a bundle, you save a shipping plus you get upgraded to express shipping.

I think the From Jeju box sounds wonderful, but I am still debating on getting it because there are no $5 or $3 off promo codes yet. We got our September VIP promo codes this morning but that is just $7 off shipping if we buy more than one box, 10% off $100, and 15% off $150.

Memebox Coffee Break with Dani Review

I think out of all the collaboration boxes, this one is the best. It is full of great products from previous Memebox. It is kind of like a Luckybox, but better since everything is like full size (beside the BB Ampoule). Also, I think the Miguhara B.P Cream and Nuganic Customized Sunblock is worth to buy this box.

Product List:

  1. Prori Aroma AC Moisture Gel Mist: this have a light floral scent to it but the whole gel mist thing is fun. I really like the texture of it.
  2. Dewytree Ginseng Black Tea Task: Love this brand's mask. I find the whole black mask thing amusing, and it works well with my skin. However, I have read that some people have breakout from Ginseng products. 
  3. Chamos Acaci Snail Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream
  4. Kocostar Nail Therapy
  5. Miguhara B.P. Cream: The is like the best B.P Cream ever, it really makes all my pore disappear and most of the time when I uses this cream, I don't need any other coverage. 
  6. Nuganic Customized Sunblock SPF50 PA+++: This is my favorite sun block and it was the main reason I purchased this box. 
  7. Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB (Sample)
  8. A pair of exfoliating glove
