Etude House Beauty Haul
Hey Dreamers and Creators!
My mini Etude House haul came in a while ago, but I didn't get a chance to share with you all until now. There are a lot of EH products I wanted to try and I managed to get a couple of them during one of their big promotional period. A lot of the times, I try to buy products during some sort of sale/promotions because well, if it can help me save than why not? Of course, there are also times when I buy products not during a sale/promotion event. Anyways, in today's haul post, I want to share with you guys the Etude House products I got and why I wanted to get them to try in the first place. P.S. I always post promotional events and sales on my Facebook page, so if you want to catch the next promotion, like me on Facebook to get the updates!
I first became attracted to Etude House's products because of their adorably cute packaging. I thought they were just some of the cutest things and I had to get my hands on a couple of them. Although, funny enough, my first EH product was not cute looking at all. It was the Wonder Pore Freshner. However, after that I began to collect cute EH products. The first set was their Castle hand creams and I still use them everyday. After checking out their products some more, I found a couple that I really wanted to try, here are some of them below.
Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur
35g, $15 (I got it on sale for $10.50)
This was on many people's to try list when it first came out. Everyone wanted to know how well it works and if it is really as amazing as it advertises. I, too, had wanted to try it since it came out, so when I had the chance to get it for $10.50 (it was on sale), I jumped at it. The pore minimizing effects and smoothing effects are 2 of the reasons why I wanted to try this product. So lets hope at least those 2 effects will work out well. I will definitely review this product on my blog once I have tried it for a while. So please look forward to that!
Etude House Moonlight In Spoon Blending Sleeping Cream
6g, $1.5, Green Tea
If you frequent my blog, you might already know that I love masks. I've tried all sorts of masks ranging from sheet masks to clay masks and wash-offs to jelly masks, and so much more! I love discovering new masks and trying them out to see if they are good for my skin or not. I've been looking at these Blending Sleeping Creams for a while now, but finally decided to get 1 to try. I opted for the Green Tea option because I love green tea in skin care products. I will most likely review this product as well, since I review all of my masks. So look out for it!
Etude House Precious Mineral MOIST Any Cushion
100ml, $18 (I got it during promotion event for $12.60), Honey Beige
Cushions are so big right now, even Western brands have started to make them. After trying out Innisfree's cushions and CODE, EH was next on my list. There are many cushions that I want to try, and they don't all have a reasonably cheap price tag to go with it. I thought I would try out the cheaper ones first, figure out what I like and don't like about them, decide on what I am looking for in a cushion and all before setting out to try the more expensive cushions. This MOIST Any Cushion is also known as EH's Winter cushion as it is supposed to keep the face hydrated during the harsh cold weather. I can't wait to try this out and compare it to Innisfree's Ampoule Intense cushion, which is essentially Innisfree's winter cushion. I will do a review and comparison in the future~
Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion
15g, $18 (I bought it for $12.60 during promotion period), Peach
I have been looking at these for a long time now, but I never got one of them until now because I was unsure which color I wanted to try. The Pink one is for people who have pale skin but want to make their skin look healthy with a natural glow. The Mint one is for people with ruddy skin tone who wants to brighten it, it can also help reduce the look of redness. The Peach one is for people with dull skin tones who want to brighten the skin and make it look lively. After a lot of thought, I decided to get the Peach one. I thought it would be a safer bet to try out the Peach one first before deciding on the other 2 colors. Since the Peach color is closer to nude than the other 2, I can probably use it as a base with ease and it won't look weird even if I don't have dull skin. Will report back on it later!
Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder
One of my favorite powders is the Innisfree No Sebum powder. It is seriously my life saver during them hot seasons. Since I tend to get oily T-zones and the no sebum powder really helps to keep it under control. When EH came out with the Zero Sebum Drying Powder, I wanted to try it to to see how it compares to the Innisfree No Sebum powder. Plus, when I made this purchase, they were doing a special promotion for their No Sebum products. So it was a win-win situation. Review and comparison to come~
Etude House Milk Talk Body Wash
I've no real reason for buying this actually, other than the fact that I love strawberries and it looks cute. Body wash is usually not on my list of things to buy internationally and I generally been using the same-ish brand for a really long time now. However, I thought I'd give it a try since I love strawberries and most strawberry scented products, I wanted to see how I would like this one. I was looking it up on the internet and it seems like it used to come with a cute strawberry sponge, however, mine did not come with one. A little sad, but I'll manage lol.
Etude House Help My Finger Nail Pack
6ml x 2EA, $1
These days, there's a mask for everything including your nails. Like seriously. As a mask fiend, I, of course, wanted to try this out as well. Although I am not super into nail stuff, I do like to keep them nice. I'll get them professionally done once in a while and if I have time, I'll paint them myself. I will definitely review these and let you guys know if they are worth a try or not.
Now, on to the free samples! There are a lot this time because I bought my stuff during one of Etude House's major promotional periods. A lot of Korean companies are known for giving generous samples and to their customers, which is great in my opinion. You get to try a lot of products before deciding to purchase the full size or not. Anyways, on to the samples!
EH Etti Wrist Cushion
Aren't these just adorable? I'll be the first to admit that these were what prompted me to make my haul purchase. I had no idea what they were for at the time, but they are so cute, even if they are for anything I can use them as vanity decoration. Anyways, these cushions were given out if you purchase their Moist cushion or Magic cushion during that promotional period. See the word play there? Cushion for cushion. I had already wanted to try multiple of their cushions so I bought 2, which is why I got 2 of these Etti cushions. Apparently, from what I can understand from looking at the back of the Etti Cushion, these can be used as wrist rests when you are on the computer, or as mini head pillows, or even to clean computer screens with. I don't think I'm going to use mine for any of that. Instead, my mom wants 1 of them, so 1 is going to her and I will display the other 1 on my vanity.
EH Cotton Pad
There are 20 pieces of cotton pads in this little box. When I first saw it in my haul box, I had no idea what it was. That is until I opened it and looked inside. The box doesn't say cotton pad or anything anywhere and instead just have pictures of cushions, which is why it got my confused. Anyways, I do believe this was part of the No Sebum debut promotion. If you bought any of their No Sebum items during that time, you would get this and a sample of the Real Art Cleansing Oil, which you will see below. I am not sure if they will have this offer again in the future, however, they have had similar offers in the past where they offer the Real Art Cleansing Oil samples and other samples.
Etude House Precious Mineral BB Samples
These were also samples given for purchasing their cushions during their promotional period. Originally, it was supposed to be their Face Conditioner Fixer sample that's given when you purchase their cushion. However, I received an email after I made my purchase saying that they had ran out of the Face Conditioner Fixer samples and will be giving me these instead. I didn't mind. I had wanted to try the Face Conditioner Fixer, but it's not like I need to try it now or anything. Plus, these are samples and these BB samples aren't bad either. Needless to say, I am excited to try these out as well.
Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil
Ah, a cleansing oil sample, this is exciting. As mentioned before, this was part of their No Sebum debut promotion. I love trying out cleansing oils, 2 of my favorites are the Shiseido one and the Banila Co. one. I want to try other cleansing oils to test and compare, so I am excited to try out this cleansing oil. If you have any cleansing oil recommendations, please do let me know!
Alright ya'll! That's is for today's haul post. Let me know in the comments below, which Etude House product you would like to try. Also what EH product do you think I should try.
