Girls, do you know the biggest guilt of a lazy Lady Blogger like me?
"You shop like it’s nobody’s business – but when it comes to reviewing, it will never happen. Always there is a haul post, but review posts seem to never be up."
I deeply want to apologize for the lack of updates but well, there’s nothing I can really do. The assignments are just too many and almost impossible to finish within a short time, so how am I gonna be able to write down in peace what I think about one product? In fact that I got free time to blog now, I’m actually not that free – I’m having a so-called “Silent Week” not to celebrate the upcoming Christmas, but a semi-annually “one week of fake holiday” that is given by my University for us to study before the final exams. I can safely say now that shopping is my therapy: for skin and my mind.
And oh, as the title suggests, this haul will mainly contain Japanese products. Like 80% of them, yay! Now without further ado, let’s get started!
HACCI Honey Cleansing Oil
The SAEM Natural Condition Lotus Cleansing Cream
KANEBO Suisai Beauty Clear Powder
MENARD Tsukika Cleansing Cream
At first I bought the two cleansing creams, believing that it would suit my skin type and condition better than cleansing oil since most of the oils I’ve tried were either too drying or simply caused me outbreaks. But then I quickly realized after trying both of the cream once:
“Cleansing cream is not the answer and congratulations, the oils are better. IKR.”
Yes, my skin literally screamed it right at my face. Daaaaaaaaayum. Long story short, so there I went buying the HACCI cleansing oil. Thank God it’s good and my skin is cool with it, even though it contains honey (which I’m allergic to).
And yep, another Japanese facial powder wash! This time it’s an exfoliating powder wash and I love it so much. Review soon. Soon….as possible?
Moving onto the moisturizer squads…
IPSA Metabolizer Regular 2
Albion EXAGE White Crystal Milk II (for normal-dry skin)
KANEBO Suisai Beauty Clear Powder – mistakenly placed there so it got featured again oh well…
ASAHI Suhada Shizuku Pack Gel
Please ignore the Suisai as I forgot to remove it from the table when taking the photo of my new moisturizer squads #getslapped
I’ve changed my Albion milk to the White version and yes, so far I am loving it! It’s more moisturizing than the original EXAGE Crystal Moist Milk I that I got few months ago, but it’s not as heavy as the Moist version. Me likey!
The other two moisturizer are super awesome too, especially IPSA. Just as the name suggests, it’s a metabolizer. Seriously I have never ever touched/had/used something with a texture this nice in my life before. I bought this…blindly, I should say. There were almost NO ENGLISH REVIEWS online about this product – IPSA is just like HACCI, it’s not widely sold worldwide and almost exclusive to East Asian Market only – but after all, I thought I should really go for it. Now I’m glad I did gamble and bought it! It’s, hands down, the best moisturizer + metabolizer eveeeeeeer in my life.
ASAHI Suhada Shizuku is raved by a beautiful vlogger MelodeeMorita and she swore it’s her favorite product so I went for it too. Honestly…I don’t really like it. But let’s see if I change my mind any sooner and wait for my in-depth review okay.
DAISO Silicone Moisturizing Mask
DAISO Cotton Pad
ETUDE HOUSE Silk Scarf Hologram Hair Serum x 2
BEYOND Ever Star AC Spot Gel
If you’ve been following me on my Instagram, you might have seen my post and mini review about this silicone mask earlier! Basically it’s a reusable mask that you can wear over your regular face mask or just wear it alone at bath/shower as a face-steam mask. In-depth review soon! Sadly it’s not available in DAISO Indonesia so I asked my friend in Japan to buy it for me.
And oh, the cute spot gel with a ‘teen lovebirds chu’ graphic is from Tootsie! I’ve been rambling a lot about my acne and outbreaks lately that he must’ve been
fed up more than happy to get me this for my spot
treatment. It’s quite expensive la for a Korean product and I’m not willing to pay
like $25 for Korean product anymore but he promised me to get it and paid for it anyway!! Hands
down the best Bae ever. Ha. *runaway*

Now the most interesting part: makeup! FYI I don’t really buy too much makeup I think I finally realized that
I don’t need that many
lipsticks? Actually higher end brands deliver a more promising & undeniably
beautiful results. Ha. Call me a snob,
I don’t mind, but I experienced it myself. Once you tried Chanel lipstick,
you will know why.

So beautiful eh? This one I promise the review is coming up as soon as possible, because this is my liability to Miri XD #runaway
Okay that’s all for my November Haul! I actually still have some Black Friday + December haul coming up soon – and yeah I shop a lot so what – but I thought the post would be too long if I put them altogether so I decided to part it into two different posts.
