November Online Purchases

by - 12/03/2013

I have a couple of items purchased last month through online shops but I still haven't gotten around to making the reviews yet, so I think I'll just go ahead and make this post prior to the reviews and maybe make the spot light on the online shops instead of the products, you know, just to mix things up a bit.

Shop 1

I was looking for a certain product (Mizon Snail Gel) and contacted HipStyle Online Shop after searching the web and found they have low price for it. But it turns out the item I was looking for was for pre-order so I just ordered something else. And as you would know, I am always on the lookout for oil-controlling skin care products so I decided to give this Anti-Sebum Cleanser from Innisfree a try.

My purchase came with a Tony Moly Aura CC Cream sample and a melon flavored candy, and also a short note from the seller. :) The package arrived within 3 days from payment. She had specifically mentioned on her store that there's "No Rush Shipping", but it actually didn't take long at all.

She accepts Paypal as payment method, which is my most preferred method for online purchases because of its ease of use and security.

Here's more info about the seller:

HipStyle Online Shop

Authentic Japanese Skincare & Make-up brands
Authentic French Pharmacie Skincare & Make-up brands
Authentic European & American Skincare & Make-up brands

Payment Methods:

Western Union

Shop 2

I've found another shop who sells the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel. Luckily they have them in stock. I think their stocks were newly arrived because they haven't uploaded them yet on Facebook and we were asked to view them on Google Docs. I didn't hesitate purchasing one before all the stocks were taken or reserved. :)

My purchase came with an Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream sample and an Etude House Sunprise Water Essence sample. :) I just love purchasing Korean products, there's always freebies. :D They're basically spoiling me.

The package arrived 2 days after payment was sent (the item was shipped the following day after payment and it arrived the day after that). Pretty fast shipping as well.

Seller info:

Korean Makeup and Skin Care products
Payment Methods:
Western Union
Cebuanna Lhuillier

Both online shops are based in the Philippines and ship nationally. I recommend both shops if you are from the Philippines and looking for a specific Asian product and don't know where to get it. And even if you have stores nearby, it wouldn't hurt to check out their stocks as sometimes (or most of the time) their products are cheaper than mall prices.

The products purchased are yet to be reviewed (gonna have to find time to do that this crazy December) and all samples haven't been sampled yet, except for the candy which I immediately consumed. Haha.

Oh, and before you go, I just wanna plug my facebook page. :D The badge is in the sidebar. I have just created it last week and it's still pretty bare. I would love if you would check it out. Thanks.

And thanks for reading! Have a nice and fun December!

    Thanks for sharing! I'm going to do a little research on Innisfree products.

    1. Yeah, you'd save more if you buy from Korea directly. If only I have contacts abroad too, I would really burden her with lots of requests. Hehehe.
      Sure, I would love to read more on Innisfree products. I've heard good things about their products, but this is the first one I've tried. :)

  5. We haven't had a chance to try out any of these brands before, but they all look promising, not to mention their gorgeous packaging. One Asian makeup brand we love is the Face Shop. They have amazing face masks!
