I was out of town to claim my PRC ID but I arrived around lunch time. I thought my PRC office must be on lunch break so I decided to while away my time at a nearby mall.
I purchased a few unnecessary stuff, stuff I don’t need but found too cute because of the packaging. A really bad reason to buy things, I know.
Maybelline Baby Lips in Watermelon Smooth. Love the packaging and the calligraphy on the tube. But when I applied it on my lips, I went “aack!”. It doesn’t taste nor smell good. Feels moisturising though and I’m sure my dehydrated lips would appreciate this.
Beauty Buffet Facial Mask in Apple & Evening Primrose. Would you look at that pastel peach plastic packaging! Screams tumblr inspired packaging, don’t you think? It claims to repair and refine and contains 23ml essence (not sure what essence though). The product is made in Taiwan. Not sure why I want to point that out.
I have not tried this product before but I know Face Mask from Asian manufacturers aren’t really that bad. I haven’t had allergic reaction yet from the one’s I have tried, which also isn’t that many, LOL!
iWhite Korea Moisturizing Facial Wash. I am a fan of iWhite brand. It’s not my go to skincare brand but I love how they always come up with innovative products. It’s not expensive, too. I remember the brand coming out with the blackheads or nose masks. Those are the still the best, bomb diggity product I’ve used so far! It really works! This Facial Wash though, uhm, I haven’t tried yet. I hope I won’t get disappointed. Look at that Tiffany blue packaging!
I know you shouldn’t buy skincare products based on their packaging. I know it’s just a marketing ploy. I am a Marketing graduate and yes I am not ashamed to say, I fell for it. LOL!
