I did a mini haul last weekend with a friend. Mostly skin care items.
Everything was pretty straight forward, domestic and international shipping hassle free. Although the Cambodian customs officials said they should charge 50% of the item cost as tax because ‘cosmetics are expensive’. Well I don’t get that crap, or was it just an unlucky day for us? Anyway, after much cajoling, they still let us go without paying anything. So that’s saying something.
I’ve been itching to try out the snail cream products from Korea but I was really hesitant to go for pricey products. I figured I want to try if the ‘snail’ component agrees with me before I made a purchase for the pricier sets. I searched Gmarket, read a lot of blogs and decided to go for this value for money Secret Key Snail+ EGF Repairing set (Seller).
Haven’t tried this yet, but the packaging is nice. Sure it doesn’t look luxurious, nor does it look cutesy patootsie. It’s not cheap looking either. This set is really good value, roughly about $28 and it includes a facial foam, toner, emulsion, essence, eye cream, gel cream and snail cream. They also packed in 3 mask sheets and a sample of Angel Tears relief cream.
I also ordered Mizon’s Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream (yes, I have a thing about eye creams! I have loads of them). I love the packaging on this one. This one is around $9.20 (Seller).
Also, I’ve been hunting down a nice case for my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and here’s what I picked. Very good item, well made and I’m pretty sure a lot more sturdy than the one I bought here. $16+ from this (Seller).
My friend’s order. I didn’t have any intention of including this on this ‘review’ but the customs people opened each and every box except for the eyeliner from Holika Holika so I figured I might as well take a pic of her order.
