Goodies from Taiwan!

Goodies from Taiwan_beautyandthings
Well chickadees, my trip has come to an end. I’ve been back since Tuesday and went straight to work the following day. It was an amazing trip with lots of eating and sightseeing. I thought I would post about beauty goodies from Taiwan. There were so much stuff that I wanted but I had to keep to a budget. Most of the beauty products I bought were from Watsons, SaSa and Innisfree.

As you can see, I had a thing for face masks this trip. I actually bought 6 boxes and ended up using an entire box while I was over there. I would have bought more but they take up a fair bit of room in my luggage.

Shopping at Innisfree was pretty awesome. I bought 5 individual face mask sheets and they gave me 2 free gifts – the cleansing kit and their best loved collection. Gotta love freebies!!

Here are my Watsons and other drugstore purchases except for the Tony Moly Lip Gloss. I didn’t realise the Biore UV Aqua was that popular until I posted on instagram. It was a random purchase for the husband but now I’ve claimed it as mine. I should have perhaps bought another just in case.
Goodies from Taiwan Jill Stuart blush_beautyandthings
This is my favourite purchase of all – my first ever Jill Stuart product. The packaging is so fancy yet ultra girly, it even comes with a brush. I’m going through a huge dilemma. On one hand, I want to start using it and the other I don’t want to ruin such a precious blush haha.

That’s it for this post, stay tuned next week for the next post where I talk about my trip to Taiwan.

Let me know if you have tried any of the products above, would love to hear your thoughts.

Everything was purchased by me.


Recent Face Mask Purchases

Happy Saturday lovely readers! I’m going through a serious face mask phase right now! A month ago, a few of us bloggers met up and checked out the new MD Ranking store on Swanston St. I bought 4 or 5 masks there but that wasn’t enough for me. I went on SaSa to buy a few more boxes and jars of masks to satisfy my current obsession.

Here’s what I got:

  • Laneige Special Treatment Water Sleeping Pack – I’ve heard many good things about Laneige but never tried any of their products before. This product has a whopping 251 reviews on SaSa so its gotta be good. When I received my package, I was surprised at how small the jar was. It felt like a sample size but luckily it only cost me $6.70. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be impressed at all. This is a leave-in masks and is used on top of your moisturiser.
  • My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask – I was pretty impressed with my last purchase so I decided to try more from their range.
  • Sasatinnie Silky Mask Rose Hip Oil Tightening & Rejuvenating Silky Mask – This is a total random purchase. I’ve never heard of the brand Sasatinnie before but when I saw this had Rose Hip Oil and tightens skin, I was sold!! Another obsession I have right now is trying to tighten my skin so as soon as I saw the words on the box..CLICK it’s in my shopping cart!
  • Skin Food Mask Rice Mask Wash Off – This mask was on sale and that was the main reason why I bought it (I think it was 40% off or something) around $12.60 aud. Sometimes I wonder if I’m buying the product for the product or for the savings.
  • Etude House Mask Green Tea Mask Sheet – I got this as a freebie! YAY for freebies or freebie in this case!! I redeem my loyalty points that was going to expire in a couple of months. I love anything green tea!

I haven’t tried any of these so if you have, leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it!

Purchased with my own money.


My Beauty Diary Q10 Rejuvenating Mask Review

Hello everyone! I’m finally back with another review of My Beauty Diary face masks and this one is called My Beauty Diary Q10 Rejuvenating Mask, I previously blogged about the My Beauty Diary Aloe Mask last year. Comparing between the Aloe and Q10, I would say the Q10 is better in my opinion. It is slightly more hydrating and my face felt a little more smoother compared to using the Aloe mask.

Q10 (a.k.a Ubiquinone or Coenzyme Q), Vitamin BT (Carnitine) and Lecithin have excellent effects as anti-oxidants, reducing the harm caused by the free oxygen radicals in the air on the skin, creating firm, elastic smooth skin. With natural plant moisturizing ingredients to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Additional info:

  • Purchased for $10.20usd from SASA
  • 10 masks per box
  • Roughly about $1.02usd per mask
  • Made in Taiwan

Like the Aloe mask, the masks are soaked with serum in their individual packaging. It did get a little messy with serum dripping everywhere when I took the mask out of the packet. Again, it is better to take the mask out over the sink. Similar to the other MBD masks, there is a plastic sheet inside the mask that makes it really easy to unfold. These masks are made with really fine cotton so you have to be gentle. I left the mask on for about 20 mins while I was watching tv and it was still quite moist afterwards. Overall, my face did feel softer using the Q10 Rejuvenating Mask. It’s well worth the priced paid but don’t have high expectations.

Purchased by me.
