Hey dolls! Long time no AB post, right?!?? 😛
The magnificently gorgeous Vanna over at Leaves of Yves sent me a super awesome box stuffed full of AB goodies, and I just had to
show off share with you guys!! 😀 If you are into Asian beauty, subscription boxes and makeup, you’ll love her blog. She’s funny, thoughtful, and very thorough in her reviews! ❤
She sent me a bunch of full sized products, loads of samples, sheet masks, a heart shaped konjac sponge, pumice stones, some lip products, blotting papers, mask packs, a cute little stuffed snail. and a shit load of decants from her personal stash…not to mention a sweet handwritten note telling me what all the decants were. She’s the best, y’all T_T
Wow, where do I start??? Let’s see another group photo, shall we? 😀
And now the full size products!
I fucking loooove anything rose scented! This cleanser smells like real roses and makes my skin feel nice. It’s suggested retail is $52…. I dunno what I’m going to do when it’s done D: The toner smells like flowers.
Ahh COSRX!!! I have their AHA Whitehead Power liquid (which I really like), so I was chuffed to bits to get more stuff from them 😀 The cleanser leaves my skin a little squeaky, but so far dryness has not been an issue. I use it in the mornings and the rose cleanser at night. I have used the pore serum only a few times. I will have to rotate it in everyday and see if it helps with my pore problems….
I lurrrvveeee the lip tint! I look so good with red lips!
I never knew… I didn’t own any red lip products before this one…. shocking right?!? Where the fuck have I been… I look sexy as fuck with red lips. Bonus? It tastes like cherry Kool-aid. 😛
I think Vanna was
lurking in my AB basket reading my mind… I was literally on the last of my Snail Repair ampoule and AIO cream. I finished the ones I had this week, go figure XD I love these products so much… my skin loves tha snail, meng. But ZOMFG! The returning starfish cream!!!!!!! I have been drooling over it for ages! I cried like a baby when I saw it (*sniffle*). But really. It’s beautifulllll
And it works too fucking well. My under eyes are usually very dry; I have to use extra face oil and snail gel just to get it to feel normal… or at least I used to before using this cream. I only use it at night (as I want to finish up my other Mizon eye cream… waste not, want not) and now I don’t have to use all that extra shit to moisturize my eye area. Huzzah! Man… I already know I’m gonna buy another one of these when this is finished…. I’m hooked. Between this and the rose cleanser, my routine is gonna be pretty pricey in the future….unless I can find another powder cleanser or rose cleanser. I need to smell roses all the time XD
She sent me three hydrogel masks and a honey mask T_T I have the donkey milk one (had… I used it the other day haha), but the other three are new to me. I tried the honey one last night… it was grrrreat 😀
Now for the stuff in the pouches:
Let’s see… there’s some Purederm peeling gel, some multi-use samples from Innisfree, Skinfood nose strips (they say they’re bad for you, but I love nose strips… they’re so satisfying!) but these are the cool down (!) strips, for after you use the standard clay strips (I need to hunt these down…) a black rose acne mask from HanAka (I got one in a Beauteque MM pouch I think? I need to try it!) and a bunch of other samples I’m too lazy to list. One of these days I have to try some of the very many samples I now possess XD
And now for the decants:
[from top left to right] body lotion from Holika Holika, some Hada Labo. blah blah moist (I love the stuff but that name! Geez), some body wash also from HH, some Missha First Time Essence in a thoughtful mini spray bottle, COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner
[middle row] Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, Mizon Apple Smoothie Peeling gel, Too Cool for School Fresh Gore Sleeping Pack
[bottom row] Too Cool for School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack, Skinfood Peach Sake Pore Serum, Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence
There are just so many awesome things I’ve been wanting to try! It’s like she read my mind man T_T These are (as she so accurately put it) deluxe samples. These decants are gonna last me for weeks! I don’t know what I did to deserve all this awesomeness, but who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth? ❤ ❤ ❤
It’s just in time for the end of my no-buy…. now I have a shopping list! Hehe 😛 I tell you, the AB Community is full of enablers! All around XD
Looks like I’ll finally be able to use this meme I made:
Thanks again to the awesome Vanna! Go check out her bloggggg! ❤ I’ll update you guys on how my face likes the things I’ve received! ❤
Til next time,
