The Asian Beauty Products Haul

I mentioned in a previous post that I didn't buy a lot of clothes in Hong Kong which is out of the norm for a clothes-lover like me. So what did I blow all my money on? The answer: beauty products. Asian beauty products. LOTS OF ASIAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS! I actually went crazy and all out so get ready for possibly the biggest beauty haul ever.

Face masks in the form of sheets are now one of my new beauty obsessions!

~ My Beauty Diary Strawberry Yogurt Mask
~ My Beauty Diary Aloe Mask
~ My Beauty Diary Southern France Apricot Mask
~ My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol Mask

MBD masks were on offer whilst I was in Hong Kong which made me a very happy girl :D

More face sheets!

~ Sophie Monk Double Lifting Hydrating Mask
~ Sophie Monk Double Lifting  Pore Minimizing Mask
~ Beautymate Refining Smooth Nano Mask
~ Beautymate Purifying and Hydrating Mask

Please ignore the "Watsons" tape. Sorry I forgot to peel them off for the photo ( >__<" )

MOAR. I told you I was obsessed!

~ Garnier Aqua Defense Hydrating Glowing Essence 2nd Skin Mask
~ Mandom Beauty Barrier Repair Facial Mask (Collagen)
~ Sexylook Hello Kitty Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Mask
~ Collagen by Watsons Hydrating Facial Mask
i♥sasatinnie Aloe Vera & Green Apply Soothing & Hydrating Mask

I think I have enough masks to survive me a year or two . . .

I am a mascara-whore.

~ Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
Majolica Majorca Lash King Mascara
~ Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus
~Tony Moly Cat's Wink Mascara #2 Curling & Longlash

I just love mascara and trying new ones! Unfortunately, brands that are readily available in the UK usually disappoint me. Asides from MJ's Expander Frame Plus (my HG mascara which I adore) the others are all new to me. I'm hoping they will impress me!

I've always wanted to see what the foam cleanser craze is all about so I pick up a few.

~Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash
~Hada Labo AHA+BHA Foaming Wash
~Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Foaming Wash

I have actually tried the Biore one a few times already. Soooooo foamy I love it! It leaves my nose so smooth too!

Yep you guess it: more skincare products.

~Nature Secret's Cleansing Oil
~Nature Secret's Bubble Cleanser
~Collagen by Watsons Hydrating Facial Gel
~Collagen by Watsons Hydrating Sleeping Mask.

I've never heard of "Nature Secret's" but their products were pretty cheap (found them in PARKnSHOP LOL) so I though I'd give them a try. I've tried and loooooove samples of the Collagen line by Watsons so I had to get the full sized versions!

Aaaaaand more skincare!

~ Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips in Apricot
~ Biore Pore Pack
~ Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips in Happy Grapefruit

After buying one pack to test them any finding out they are identical to the UK versions; I stocked up big time! I actually have like ten more boxes of these (was to lazy to arrange them all for a photo). I think there may be more scents out there but I just grabbed what I could without looking because these are so damn cheap in HK! These were 19.90HKD (which is under £2) for 10 and here in the UK you have to pay £8 for only 6 strips ( ; __ ; )

And the last of the beauty products I purchased in Hong Kong...

~ Faddy Sea Salt Spray
~ Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion
~ Hadanomy Collagen Cream
Review: Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

If you haven't noticed already I tried to group my products for the photos. These are products that I couldn't group lol

Finally, here's my pathetic haul from Japan!

~ Shiseido Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam
~ K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner
~ Spiral Hair Pin from Daiso (Hair Arrangement Set A)
~ Nail Dotting Tool from Daiso
~ Eyelash Glue from Daiso

I didn't buy a lot in Japan because I spend most of my time site seeing and it was more expensive compared to Hong Kong. I only bought the cleanser and eyeliner because it was on offer ( ^__^" ) The rest of the stuff is from the famous store DAISO!!! I wish I picked up more :')

And that's my haul! I'll end this post with a picture of me next to all my masks stacked together to make a tower haha. This was taken when me and my brother got bored of packing our suitcases. The tower fell.


  1. the Japanese box art is much cuter than it's USA counterparts

    1. I know right! Things just seem to be more cute over in Asia!

  2. Omg you went skin care crazy! haha such a good haul I'm really excited to see how you like these products. I am not really into skin care but the foam cleansers seem good! I always wanted to try the 1 day tattoo liner!

    1. Yep...told you I went crazy xD
      I plan to do reviews on some of these products as I work my way through them so I'll keep the Tattoo Liner in mind ^__^

  3. OH MY GOSH.
