The first trip I made to Hong Kong, I came home with half a Sasa store. I’m kidding. Almost. :P
With each subsequent trip I make, my shopping hauls get smaller and smaller but comprise products I already use, need or that I actually want. *gasp* I must be growing up! :P
This time, I just picked up a couple of essentials in the Kose Softymo Cleansing Oil (I can’t believe my “essentials” come from Hong Kong :P ) and a couple more items I’d been wanting to have a go at. I know everyone loves snooping into others’ holiday shopping hauls but this is so small, its almost embarrassing.
There was my Sofymo Cleansing Oil which I’d read was being discontinued or getting hard to find even in Hong Kong. But happily, I found that it was still plentiful on the shelves of Bonjour (although I couldn’t find it in Sasa) so rejoice if you love this one too! I also bought a foaming variation too because it looked interesting. I love my Japanese cleansers :D I picked up a bottle of Bioderma Micellar cleanser because I’d read so many raves about it. Can’t quite make head or tail of it yet.
I walked past a store that had Camper shoes on 50% off and picked up this bootie type shoe. I think its called the Mamba which is also a deadly snake – just in case anyone’s wondering :) I loved how it looked and how balanced it was, plus the rubber sole had great friction which was quite perfect. Oh it was also very comfy and I’m thinking of taking this out for a longish walk to see how it fares. Its always useful to have a pair of good and nice walking shoes. I also learnt that for me, Camper shoes run small so I had to size up 1 size. Very useful information to file away for future online shopping exploits ;)
And finally, 3 items I’d set out with the intention of buying – L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows and more Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Eyeshadows.
*Midnight Blue should read All Night Blue #06
I already own a few of both and you can expect some reviews to be coming up soon. Both the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill shadows (HKD250) and the L’Oreal Infallible shadows (HKD89) have the same concept and formula – compacted loose powder eyeshadows that looks and feel like cream but apply like a powder. Its hard to describe but they are really good stuff.
And that, as they say, is it! Quite a perfect little haul for me, but quite a pathetic showcase next to some mind boggling hauls I’ve seen :)
Do you enjoy reading shopping haul posts? I realise its a bit of a filler at the best of times, but it is quite nice sometimes. Its that voyeuristic pleasure we get, rather like peeping into someone’s closet or room ;) If you have used any of the above items, please share your thoughts with me? In particular the Bioderma Micellar cleanser thingybob. How would you use it?
