Weekend Collective Haul

8 Jun

Last weekend, I went to Central Chitlom (one of the posh malls here in Bangkok) to look for a birthday present for my boss. I was debating whether to get her a beauty product or a statement necklace, but I remembered that the last time I got her a beaded necklace, she only used it to the office once so I decided to get her a makeup item instead, of course with the hope that she  makes use of it well. After going up and down the different department store levels and sections and checking out several makeup counters, I settled to give her  Dior (not pictured). I didn’t get myself anything from any high end brand because I am saving it for duty free shopping at the airport when I travel next month.

As for my own goodies, I got mine from The Body Shop, The Face Shop and drugstores, Boots and Watsons.

The Body Shop

Shea Soap (I love its mild scent and its relatively moisturising effect.)

Shea Lip Butter (I had this ages ago so I thought it would be good to get another one again. I’m not liking its smell but it does relieve dry lips.)

Peppermint Intensive Foot Rescue (I only used it once but I’m partial to anything mint.)

Born Lippy Stick Lip Balm Pomegranate (I didn’t use it yet but swatched it at the store. It is very sheer, almost colourless.)

Some of the succeeding items are not tested nor swatched yet, so please pardon if I have no comments for other products enumerated.


17 Photo Flawless Eye Pencil in Black Blue

No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Temptress

Leif on Location 6-Piece Long Handle Brush Set (They’re very soft. I got this set for my trip next month.)

Revlon and The Face Shop Nail Polishes


–  Fearless (Both Revlon polishes are really creamy and opaque. They got small and narrow brushes, though.)

Lovely Me:ex PK109

Lovely Me:ex WH002 (This bottle has no Lovely Me:ex label which is weird.)

The Face Shop

Herb Day Lip & Eye Makeup Remover (This smells good and is gentle, too.)

Honey BB (One of The Face Shop’s new products, its consistency is like a mousse unlike regular BB creams.)

Mini Pet Sweet (This is the newest variant in the Mini Pet series.)

Lovely Me:ex Happy Chu Lip in PK101 (It is a lightly-tinted lip balm which is comparable to its competitions, Companies E and T’s products.)

Lovely Me:ex Nail Polish Remover (It smells good and not drying.)

It’s the weekend once again but I will not be doing a lot of shopping for beauty items after this haul. Aside from not really needing anything, I should be saving for my upcoming trip because I am certain that I will not be able to hold off the urge to purchase when I go to the Philippines.

I am planning to make detailed reviews and swatches of these items (maybe not all of the products) but if you are interested with anything, please don’t hesitate to let me know so I can review it first.

Hope you all have a fun and productive weekend! Don’t shop too much 😉

Cheers 🙂

Skinfood Aloe Water Eye & Lip Remover

Skinfood Aloe Water Eye & Lip Remover

Skinfood Aloe Water Eye & Lip Remover

I already ran out of my make up remover and what I have in stock is Skinfood Aloe Water Eye & Lip Remover. It comes in 100ml transparent plastic bottle.

From its label: Skinfood Aloe Eye & Lip Remover is a water-based remover with aloe ingredients to clearly remove color make up with a cool touch.

Its ingredients are Water, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Butylene Glycol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium Edta, Methylparaben, CI 42090, CI 19140

I know I should check what those ingredients are but I already tried the make up remover tonight.

It is wrapped in plastic and sealed so I’m certain that it’s new and unopened. It has a faint sweet aloe scent that you can smell only if you put the bottle close to your nose. I dabbed a few drops to a cotton pad and pressed it on my eyes for 5 seconds (or longer), it removed the eye shadow but not the waterproof mascara. I had to scrub mascara off of my lashes a few times. I have to use a lot of product to completely clean my eyes.

I tried to test Maybelline Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara, Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara and Holika Holika Enamel Magic Liquid Eyeliner on my hand and dabbed a cotton pad soaked in the Aloe Water for 10 seconds. It didn’t work instantly (see last picture below) so I scrubbed them off gently until they were completely removed.

This bottle is inexpensive (I got it from an online seller based here in Bangkok) so I don’t mind that it takes an effort for it to work. I’m still gonna use the product. After all, patience is a virtue, right? 😉

Have you tried Skinfood Aloe Water Eye & Lip Remover? Care to share?
