Of course there was going to be a part 2. Because when I haul, I mean business.
When Berdever was running a promotion on A-True in April, it was the perfect occasion to snatch the entire White Snow Tea series.
A-True White Snow Tea Brilliant Essence (nobody does essences like A-True)
A-True White Snow Tea Brilliant Toner
A-True White Snow Tea Brilliant Aurora Cream.
If you get the distinct impression that I prefer to buy the entire lines of products, you are absolutely correct. I do mix and match in my skincare routine. But to form an opinion about a brand, or a line, I think it's a good idea to try everything, at least as samples.
And speaking of samples:
This was a calculated risk. I got 30 of each:
su:m37 Flawless Regenerating Essence
su:m37 Flawless Regenerating Eye Cream (my love!)
su:m37 Secret Repair Concentrated Cream.
The Flawless duo was legit, I checked it against the authentic samples I had from before.
But the Secret Repair foils got me thinking. Some were printed a bit sloppily. I started to compare the contents, foil to foil. In some the cream looked bright and fresh. And in some it looked and smelled like old butter. It's possible those were old samples. Or it's possible they were otherwise dodgy.
I wanted to provide a link to the ebay store where I got it from, but, wouldn't you know it, that particular seller (fortunebox_maker) is no longer selling. Oh well... moving on...
I was curious about this Privacy UV Gel BB SPF50+ PA++++:
Originally I wanted to get Privacy UV Face Mist, but it was all sold out.
So I took the very last UV Gel BB off the shelf.
According to the ingredients, it's alcohol-free.
And even though it comes out greyish pink out of the tube, once on the skin, it matches my complexion perfectly.
I'm very pleased.
And ladies, if you are looking for a matte BB cream, you need to look for a Japanese product.
If you want dewy glow, then choose a Korean cream.
And finally, placenta lotion!
The snobs of this world may shun placenta, but luckily I'm not that picky.
This is a huge bottle (500 ml) of alcohol-free placenta goodness. And it was ridiculously cheap, too. Around 1000 yen.
Yes, I was skeptical in the beginning. I didn't think this would do anything. And maybe what it does is just a placebo effect. But I'm happy. It calms my angry skin, it doesn't break me out, it doesn't smell, it's not greasy. What more could you want? Oh, yeah, and did I mention it's cheap? Yep. It's cheap.
And that concludes episode 2 of my April-May hauling adventure.
