So I’ve been waiting for my package from w2beauty.com to arrive for ages now. I’d heard stories about the mail system in Vietnam and how it’s not quite as reliable as I’m used to, but I received other packages from iherb and WISHtrend without any problems, so I didn’t think it would be an issue. I was wrong.
I had to go to 2 different post offices, spend a ton of money on taxis, and just when I was getting ready to head to the local post office myself to figure out what was going on, there was a knock at my door. So what did I get? Let’s take a look.
Starting from the left, we have the Primera Miracle Seed Essence. Primera is a brand that I had just started getting in to right as I left Korea. It’s sort of like the higher end version of Innisfree, including the cardboard packaging and the use of all natural ingredients. Instead of focusing on fermentation like su:m37, Primera focuses on germination, or the process where a seed grows into a plant. The Miracle Seed Essence is 93.1% lotus seed extract. Oooooh! I think you’ll be seeing a lot of Primera around these parts.
Moving down, it’s the A’Pieu Kissable Tint Stick in RD01. I got this on a whim because it looked cute. Lord knows I don’t need any more lip products, but they’re my weakness.
Next is the Primera Petitgrain Silky Hand Cream. I know I’ve never talked about this but hand creams are another weakness of mine. My hands are always dry, especially after washing them, so I gotta keep a hand cream around me at all times.
I picked up another tube of the Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream for Johnny. I’m curious to see how the new one in the tube compares to the one in the jar that I reviewed.
Above the Benton cream is another Primera product, the Pure Hydrating Gel Cream. Ya’ll already know my weakness for gel cream/lotion hybrids, so I had to pick it up. This one features Sequoia sprouts.
And it wouldn’t be a haul without an appearance by my favorite skincare brand, su:m37. I picked up the full size of the Time Energy – Skin Resetting Serum and the Time Energy – Skin Resetting Softening Emulsion. I finally finished all my samples from Korea and was desperately waiting to get my hands on the full size products! I cannot wait to wash my face tonight. Woohoo!
And as always, the lovely and amazing Alice, the owner of w2beauty, included tons of samples and face masks, and even a mini nail polish! I haven’t ordered online from many Korean beauty stores, but Alice’s customer service is always above and beyond.
And that’s it. I actually just found an amazing, all-natural Vietnamese beauty shop online that I purchased a TON of things from, so let me know if you’d like a haul on that as well when I receive it. Think body scrubs, oils (for face and body), lip products, and soaps!
Have you made a Korean beauty haul recently? What did you get? Let me know in the comments!
