My Huge Asian SkinCare, HairCare and MakeUp Haul | Reviews

Hello my beauties!!!!!!!!
I am super excited to share my latest beauty haul, full of crazy stuffs from my trip to Thailand.. I’m going to talk only about my topmost latest beauty haul otherwise the whole list is too long. In Thailand we inevitably used to end up in 7 eleven from morning to evening to fetch something or the other and I never used to miss any chance to sneak in to the general beauty supplies section and always came out with a bunch of various beauty products in tester size which is great for travellers for one time use. So, naturally I tested a bunch of them during my whole vacations and brought back all the products which I fell in love with. Their market is hoarded with Asian, Korean beauty products making all the promises for a great skin care which is either unavailable in India or being sold with a very high price tag. I wish they were available here at same price.

1.    Snail Cream : Have you heard of it???  

In this natural cosmetic snail slime is the main ingredient. Now, snail slime would probably be the last thing you’d want to put on your skin, but snail cream is literally flying off the shelves these days and is actually being used as a beauty aid and is meant to reduce inflammation and redness, stimulate skin regeneration, and lock moisture into the skin. I got Karmart Cathy Doll Snail Bright Cream for myself and Karmart Cathy Doll Snail Gold Cream for my mum. It has 60% snail mucus, super duper cute packaging and has an outlet preventing any contamination over several use. The Asians simply love snail beauty products and made me fall in love with too.

2.    Serum : Jenny Sweet White Snail Serum-Korean DD

As I was already loving the snail cream, I gave a try to Snail Serum too. It states that it is an antioxidant, retains moisture and repairs skin cells, also helps in shedding of dead skin cells, stimulates the skin, reduces inflammation and acne, brittleness to fade and moisturizes to prevent dryness, suppresses the growth of pathogens, provides elasticity to the skin, helps in keeping skin younger.
I don’t know whether it is working on me this way or not, but yes it gives an extra hydration to my skin. Which is not oily at all, just perfect hydration.

3.       Snowgirl Squalane Serum Cream

w3142.jpgWhen the snails weren’t enough of the ingredients in moisturising I came across this product which contains an extract made from shark. To be more detailed, this Serum Cream or Cream Serum contains squalane oil from shark liver. The other ingredients are glutathione which is an antioxidant and a number one ingredient for safe brightening of the skin and is full of beneficial ingredients like mineral oils and fruit extracts.  Perfect as a night cream.

4.      Sleeping Masks : Merci Sleeping Mask II

Asians are ardently committed towards their night skincare routine. They not only apply night time moisturizers, they have got sleeping masks too.  Sleeping packs are heavy duty night creams that aim to infuse the skin with stacks of nutrients between the hours of 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. when the skin is most focused on healing and rejuvenation. To repair the dryness and few bumps I had got on my forehead due to air travel, sun exposure and climate change, I applied it for a night and over the night all the pimples were gone and my skin was supple and smooth again. It was a miracle mask.

5.      Facial Freckle Remover Cream : Kuam Im 111 cream

Kuan Im is a popular brand of pure pearl cream in Asia. It states that it is effective for acne, freckles, dark spots, acts as a UV sunblock and can be used as a foundation cream for makeup. Let’s see how effectively it’s going to work on me, but it is super cheap just for 17 Baht and safe for the skin. Hope someday I wake up and all my freckles are gone.

6.      Essence : Cathy Doll Water Splash With Essenceowtz0ypxwdx4toiy2ucx23820154939007159I would rather call it magic essence, Cathy Doll Water Splash Essence with L-glutathione is an instant whitening cream that can be used alone or as a primer or base for your makeup. It is a very lightweight cream, almost foamy in texture, that is easily absorbed into the skin leaving you with a fairer complexion. The magic happens in 1-2-3 simple and easy steps – apply the essence to your face, rub in circular motion until you see droplets of water and continue to spread it across your face until it dries up and gets completely absorbed by your skin and gives a very natural fair effect. It was fun using it when I had to hide my tan. Wish I had got more of them.

7.      Nose Blackheads Strip: Biore Cleansing Strips

KAO-Biore-Nose-Cleansing-Blackheads-Pore-Strips-White.jpgThese are my HG pore strips now .. forget PONDS or any other strips available. I personally think that it’s best to use this product after showering because after you shower your pores open up from the steam. I’ve even tried the strips on my husband and now he’s also officially a big fan and it works great on him and never had any problems.

8.      Bathing Salts : Yoko Spa Milk Salt

It’s an awesome scrub. The smell of sweet milk vanilla hits you once you open the package, and inside, fine granular grains of salt. I adore the milk vanilla smell of it!  It makes my skin feels super duper ultra smooth, I love touching my hands and feet after using the salt as though I’ve gone through a luxury bath. It is even mentioned in the back that is being distributed in India. Yayy!!

9.       Makeup Starter Serum :
 NIVEA Make Up Starter 3 in 1 moisturising serum.

The inevitable application of cosmetics on face for 8 hour / day for years contributes to the skin pigmentation, discoloration and dullness. You might be using  whitening cream with SPF to the brighten the skin  but  the skin continues to be dark and have dark spot. Soooo, this is the solution for you!!! The makeup starter serum acts as a shield for skin from harsh chemicals of makeup and claims to restore the skin from the effect of harsh chemical makeup and sun. Isn’t it nice, a protecting shield for your skin from sun and the chemicals. Hope they start selling it in India too soon. 🙂

10.        Caring Hair Expert Contour  Styling Mousse

The mousse texture of the product ensures easy application and speedy drying as little moisture is added to the hair. It contains hair conditioner which helped to keep my ends soft while hitting the beach. It doesn’t give that ‘crispy’ feel that some brands do. This product great to get those beachy waves or perfect curls. A perfect hairstyling mousse for curls… ❤

11.       Hair Cuticle Coat : Audace Silky Hair Cuticle Serum

The packaging claims that the product is meant to repair damaged hair, split ends, dry hair. It heals split and prevents split ends. Leads to healthy, soft, shiny and easy to comb hair. I haven’t tried it yet, will be reviewing about it soon.

12.      Hair Vitamin : Lesasha Hair Vitamin Repairing Serum Capsules Leave on with Seaweed

Another protection and repair for your hair. I came across this capsule while going through the haircare products and as soon as I saw it, I just knew I have to try it. It has a kind of formula that penetrates deep into the hair shaft leaving hair healthy, silky, soft, shiny, frizz free and easy to comb. Days spent at the ocean turned my hair extremely frizzy and difficult to manage and this serum came as a rescue to my hair and my hair was as smooth as before. The leave in serum nourishes and repairs the hair like no other product that I have ever tried,  I am super happy with the results.

13.       Loreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream

I’m so fascinated by this product because I’m a fan of anything that transforms! The BB cream only comes in white shade creamy texture and has self-adjusting BB Capsules which get crushed and melted during the blending process and self adjusts to match to the skin tone and magically transforms skin for an enlivened lit-from-within complexion. Isn’t that superb. Finishing off with a translucent powder and you are ready to go!!

14.      Lipsticks Love
To be honest, I have never been much of a lipstick gal. The only lip product that I religiously apply is lip balm. Despite not being a “lip person”, I still hoard lipsticks. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s all the pretty colors. I adore them. They just brighten up your whole face even if there’s nothing on your face. They add drama to your whole look. So, this haul was definitely supposed to have them and the lipsticks which I got are “Wet ‘n’ Wild – Mega Last Matte – 904B – RoseBud“, “Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter – 096 – Macaroon” and “Etude House- Dear My Wish Lips Talk De BE101 Chic Hollywood Actress

Wet and Wild – 904 B – Rose Bud
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter – 096 – Macaroon
Etude House Be101 Chic Hollywood Actress

Aren’t these colors super cute…

15.      Eyebrows : Bourjois Sourcil Precision Eyebrow Pencil


The eyebrows are of paramount importance to the harmony of the features. It’s a perfect eyebrow pencil with a perfect shade to match my eyebrows. Bourjois has created subtle and delicate, absolutely undetectable intermediate shades. I would highly recommend it to all. It’s one of the best eyebrow liner.

16.      Eyelashes : Mascaras
Although I tried to resist myself from fetching mascaras but I couldn’t. I’m so obsessed with mascaras and the additions were required. The mascaras that I fetched are 

Maybelline Volum’Express Mascara The Falsies Big Eyes – This mascara has wands for both the upper lash and lower lash, the best part of this mascara is definitly the lower lashes side. The application in the lower lashes makes a huge difference and really does help to achieve the Big Eyes effect!  So beauties, time to love your lower lashes with the new wand and see what difference it makes! 

Maybelline LashionistaWhat i love most about this mascara is that it doesn’t clump even after many layers, which is essentially the key to getting really long lashes with any fibre type mascara.

Maybelline Rocket VOLUM’EXPRESS – 

This mascara is amazing! It’s very black which I love, it gives my lashes both the length & thickness that I want in a mascara!

16.      Nailpaints : The finishing touch to the look

Etude House Play Nail 114 PK 023

All nailpaints from Etude House were definitely cute and fun to play with and Etude House Play Nail 114 PK 023, similar to Prom Queen from same brand, throbbed my heart. Play Nail is a sheer pale pink multi-glitter polish. There are iridescent glitters, silver and coloured hexes in large and small sizes, so it’s really got it all.  Uber pretty!

Ah…. This was all about my topmost beauty haul from the trip..!!!
