The other day, I realized that I didn’t have any more hand cream. Not that this has always been a custom for me. But you know when you started and then you get into the habit of doing something already and then you stopped, it seems like there’s something missing?
My ritual that included the hand cream thing started out after my trip from China. I used to wear this jade bangle (which I just got reminded of, I should look for that) that fits perfectly. And when you say “fits perfectly” referring to the Jade Bangle. It should be tight enough that it won’t fall through your hands or bye-bye bangle.
So for you to wear the bangle, well for me, so that I won’t get red and blotchy (blame it on sensitive skin), I have to put lotion so that it slides through.
So anyway, going back, knowing that I don’t have any hand cream anymore and knowing that I don’t have time to go to the mall (yes, uhuh, I’m that busy :(), I decided to check buy beauty stuff from BeautyMNL.com.
I’m a self-confessed fan of Deal Grocer and Taste Central and honestly, Beauty MNL is also pretty cool. They have curated the perfect line up for you guys. Although I have to admit that I was still looking for some things that are not there. But then again, they’re not a mall. Not their fault.
Stuff that I got from Beauty MNL:
1.) Nuovo Lusso – Luxe Verbena Hand Cream (30ml)
Although I love the scent, it actually smells like the L’Occitane series which I truly, truly love. It’s quite small – 30 ml. But that’s not their fault. My fault because I didn’t see that there’s a 100ml one.
But as for the smell, smells really, really good and I’m falling in love with that because of that.
Surprise! Surprise! Since I was probably one of the first 30 buyers, I got a free perfume sample from Scents and Style. I forgot what scent that was but it really, really smells good. I’ve been looking for their Facebook Fan Page but nope, sorry none.
2.) Wet N’ Wild – Mega Volume Mascara
This is my first time to use this but it looks promising. Let’s see how it fairs in contrast to the trusty Maybelline mascaras.
3.) Moringa Body Butter
Happy to see this here since this is one my favorites. I love the scent and the product. I was looking for Satsuma also though. That’s another one of my favorites. But it was sold out. I can’t blame them.
4.) The Face Shop – Face It Power Perfection BB Cream SPF37
Because just recently, I have become a FAN of BB Creams. I know a bit lag since there’s already CC cream. But for me, honestly, BB Creams are still better than CC Creams.
5.) The Face Shop – Face It Aura Color Control CC Cream SPF30
Because this has got to be one of the coolest products ever invented! I used to buy those cream compact foundation but it never worked well. Like for instance that of The Body Shop, (yes, I am a fan of The Body Shop but just not that product :P), the brush that it comes with falls off!!
But this one, soo cool. My friend first got this for me from Korea and then I just bought the refill here. You just push the button, CC cream comes out. Use the sponge and apply to your face. Good coverage and blendability (if there is a term like that). Easy, breezy and not messy at all!! <3
Items that I would love to see at Beauty MNL:
- Maybelline Mascaras!
- The Body Shop Gift Packs. I love those little ones because they’re perfect for travelling and when you go to the gym. Lighter in the bag.
- Shopper rebates, please? A lot of these shops have shopper rebates like The Body Shop and The Face Shop. I would love it that when I shop at Beauty MNL, I won’t say “sayang” the points because I didn’t get it offline.
