1st Mini Beauty Haul!

Hey ladies! Today will be my first time to blog about my very 1st mini beauty haul! The purpose of this post is just to share with you all the beauty products I have got myself recently. Can you feel my excitement already? =) OK then, without further ado, let's get started!^_^

Cure Natural Aqua Gel 
I usually only cleanse my face every night before going to bed. However, exfoliating our skin is also important to remove the unwanted dead skin cells so that any facial serum or moisturizers applied to our skin can be absorbed better. Last night when I visited Watsons , I was lucky to spot and buy this highly raved Japanese facial exfoliant, Cure Natural Aqua Gel! I get to know this product thanks to the makeup guru Bubzbeauty's youtube video. It's said that 1 bottle of this is sold every 20 SECONDS in Japan!! ^^ I haven't actually used this but I will let you know if it's any good in my future product review.:)

My Beauty Diary Bird's Nest Mask
I saw this Taiwanese facial mask on Guardian Pharmacy. Since it is pretty cheap (1 pack of 2 sheets for S$2.80 only!), I decided to grab and try this at home. So far the result on my skin has been quite great. The mask is soothing and I can see my skin appears hydrated and bright on the next morning when I wake up.:) 

Bright Up Nano Eye Mask
Dark circles have been quite a problem for me since I am on computer on long hours and due to occasional late nights. Again thanks to Bubzbeauty's recommendation, I learn about this awesome nano eye mask that is supposed to treat dark eye circles. I have used this for a few times and find it quite nourishing and you can see plenty of its serum practically oozing out of the eye mask! =D I usually use the excess serum on my neck and my dry hands. Overall, I think this product is quite worth it though I am not sure if it can solve my dark circles in the long run.:)

L'oreal Gentle Lip & Eye Make-Up Remover (for waterproof make-up)
I have tried various brands of eye make-up remover but none has worked quite well as this one. It is really gentle on the eyes as it does not sting when I use it to remove my eye make-up. It also feels quite soothing as well! Just pour some of it to a thin cotton pad and leave it for a few seconds and then use your fourth finger to slide the cotton pad down your eyelids and have clean eyelids!:) 

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Bisque
Since my dark circles' problem has yet to be solved, I have also decided to get a good makeup product to conceal it. Based on good reviews I have seen on the internet, Bobbi Brown Corrector appears to serve this purpose. I have been using it recently and I would say that the result is pretty good as it manages to cover my dark circles quite well and it does not appear dry and cakey.:)

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Espresso Ink #7

Last but certainly not least, I have also got this gel eyeliner while visiting a Bobbi Brown counter. Prior to this, I have been using a black liquid eyeliner when doing my eye makeup. Since I want to try something different, I  decide to get this to try it out. The Bobbi Brown makeup advisor said that Espresso Ink #7 would suit me better since it will appear more natural and less harsh on my eyelids. I will let you know if it is worth the hype once I try it out. =)

 that concludes my beauty haul! Phew! I will talk to you again soon! ;)
