Packages Galore :D

Listening to: Park Bom - You and I

Don't we just love it when we receive expecting packages. After the whole Royal Mail strike last week, mail was being delayed and I was not a happy bunny. But then Monday came and they just came swarming in.

So lets get started on the packages.

I ordered some Laneige products after hearing some good reviews from various people, of course also from Bubzbeauty and Moonbeamstarlight who higly recommends. So what did I get?.

Laneige Multi Cleanser 180ml - For all skin types:
(Laneige claims)
- A new 3-in-1 cleanser functioning as makeup remover + foam cleanser + super fine scrub.

- Ultra fine particles containing 100μm Micro cellulose beads completely remove the makeup residue.

- AHA mixtures extracted from 5 plants (orange, lemon, bilberry, sugar cane and sugar maple) keep your skin elastic, and ivy extracts and vitamin E agent purifies skin impurities.

Laneige Pore Trouble Skin Refiner 160ml - For all skin types:
(Laneige claims)
- The Trouble Care Skin Toner is specially formulated for strengthening skin pore health. When applied, it leaves a smooth and fresh feeling without any stickiness.

- Removes excessive corneous skin dead cells and prevents keratinization, resulting in a smoother and cleaner skin.

- Contains salicylic acid and triclosan, which help prevent skin problems by removing excessive sebum and corneous skin dead cells, thus cleansing the skin pores.

- Contains tea tree oil, licorice extract, raspberry extract, clove extract and parsley extract, which help suppress and relieve skin problems.

- Contains natural Lactobacillus extract which helps balance PH values and strengthen immune system of skin pores, thus improving adult skin problems caused by factors such as hormone imbalance and air pollution.

I've yet to try these products but I am looking forward to it as soon as I finish using my current products. Might not be able to tell from the pictures but these products are huge, will be lasting me a very long time. I ordered these online from a korean seller who was also kind enough to throw in a couple of samples, yay me =] A bottle of Laneige lip and eye make up cleaner and a sachet of Skin Food Orange and Mint Body Essence.

Moving on, I also received some DVD's box sets I brought off ebay for a very, very good price. As most would know, I love my Korean Dramas so when I came across a seller who put up for auction 6 titles at a starting bid of 99p I just had to get my bidding fingers ready. I won and was impressed at how fast it had arrived as the seller decided to use a different courier due to the royal mail strikes.

I dont know how popular these are but I saw some guru's on youtube using them and thought they quite funky so got my hands on some too. These Velcro hair sheets just simply helps to keep hair out of the face by sweeping the hair back and placing it on top, no clipping or gripping. Very handy for when applying skincare or make up. (May not work too well with thicker hair, like mine)
Then there is the Facial hair removal spring wand. After watching the review from pursebuzz I went on the hunt for one as she made it seem painless. Verdict, it works really well and is painfree (maybe after the 1st couple of uses for some who are more sensitive). Would chose this method over tweezing any day.
