Skincare Haul

Thursday, 7 March 2019

Garnier Micellar Water, Naruko, Klairs Toner, COSRX Pimple Patch, The Ordinary Niacinamide, The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin, Innisfree, Daiso, Sunplay Sun Aqua

Last month was the month that I spent a lot of my money on skincare. Some of the products are repurchase and some are new products that I wanted to give it a try. Most of them were bought through online websites like Shopee and Hermo. I bet I won't buy any skincare anymore from the time being as I bought a lot already. I need to stop for a while. Right? Or I shouldn't? These upcoming months, I want to focus on my skincare routine and left makeup for a while. A good skincare routine will enhance your makeup, right? So let me stop buying more makeup kinds of stuff and focus on my skincare first. I really hope that these products suit my skin and won't break me up cause if it does, I wanna cry my heart out. I spent a lot on this though I really wish my skin to get better.

So, let's go into the haul. Shall we?

Innisfree, Green Tea, Face mist

Innisfree Green Tea Mist
Hydration is key. I am pretty sure that you heard it a lot from everywhere. But don't you think that it is true? Once you have enough hydration, your skin will look good. This is my second products of Innisfree and I got it from Hermo. The moment I received the product, I shocked at how big the bottle was. It will last for months, to be honest. The scent is nice and not too overpowering. Some might not like the scent but for me, I kind of like it. The nozzle works great. It spritzes to the whole face without making it too wet. The mist is quite hydrating but it feels a little bit sticky.

Dear Klairs, Toner, Korea brand

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
After using the three mini size of this toner, I decided to buy the full size one. I wonder why I didn't do it earlier cause God knows how much I love the toner. The scent is nice and smells fresh. The consistency of the toner is quite thick but still watery. It is so hydrating and soothes the skin very well. I like using my palm more when applying the toner but you can also use the cotton puff if you want to. I will always repurchase this toner and not change it to others. 

Naruko, Taiwan brand, Mask, Tea Tree

Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask
I heard so many good reviews on this mask so I think why not try it out since it is suitable for my skin condition. I haven't tried it yet and I'm looking forward to using it soon. I will update a review on this mask once I used it.

Innisfree, Aloe Vera, Mask Pack, Korea brand

Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack (Aloe)
My first time using this product. How cute the size is? I just can't stop touching it. It is perfect for someone who travels a lot as you can throw it to your bag without taking so much space. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it is just like other aloe vera gel. It is suggested to store it on the fridge which I am going to do when I am about to use it. I can imagine how soothes the aloe is when it is on the skin. I can't wait to try it.

The Ordinary, Niacinamide

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
This is my second bottle and I can say that it helps me a lot with my skin journey. My skin is improving because of this serum so I will keep on using it until I satisfied with my skin condition. The texture is quite thick and watery. Three drops are enough for the whole face. You can't use much because the serum will turn cloudy, then you knew you apply too much. The absorption is quite fast and doesn't leave any stickiness at all. If you have cuts or freshly popped pimple, it will sting a bit. But overall it is a great product to try.

The Ordinary, Alpha Arbutin

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2 % + HA
I heard that Alpha Arbutin helps you fade away acne scars so I decided to give it a try. I am quite scared to use this serum as I am afraid that it doesn't suit my skin. But finger crossed that I will try it anyway. My skin has not many bumps anymore (thanks to Niacinamide) but the scars are my major consent. I tend to pop out my pimple which I know I shouldn't but I just can't help it. Then I regret cause many scars left on my skin. I hope this serum will help me. I know that it will not instantly fade away my scars but I wish that it works.

Garnier, Clenasing Water, Micellar Water, Micellar Cleansing Water

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 
I became countless for how many times I repurchased this micellar water. I have been using it for years and I decided to keep on using it. It works wonders on my skin and I like it a lot. I transferred some of the micellar water to my spray bottle cause I like it more that way. I have a habit to wipe my face with micellar water after I woke up and before I go to sleep at night at it removes all the dirt and sebum with a few wipes. For the makeup, it removes almost waterproof and non-waterproof one very well. 

Sunplay, Sunscreen, UV Milk

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk
Trying this new baby as my previous sunscreen gave me tiny bumps on my skin and I guess it must be because of the alcohol in it. So I searched for a sunscreen that doesn't have alcohol and mineral oil, and this sunscreen is the one. I can't wait to try this. Hopefully, it suits my skin and doesn't break me out. 

Dasio, Cotton Puff, Beauty tool

Daiso Cotton Puff
My favourite cotton puff in the world. I don't know if I should talk about it again as I mentioned about this cotton puff a lot in my previous blog posts. It just the best and I might not change it until forever. 

Daiso, Konjac Puff, Konjac Sponge, Green

Daiso Natural Konjac Puff
Since I can't exfoliate my skin with the scrub. I tried to find another way to remove my dead skin then I saw konjac sponge. The one that I have is from Daiso. It is quite affordable compared to others. I don't want to spend much on the thing that needs to be thrown after a few weeks so Daiso is the perfect one. The konjac sponge is not too harsh on the skin and quite soft once it wet and damp. There is various type of konjac sponge with different colours so you will need to get the one according to your skin problems.

Cosrx, acne patch, pimple patch, patch

Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch
If you do not know what acne patch is, acne patch is a patch that you put on the area needed especially on your pimple or acne. It will absorb all the junk on the deep skin and leave clean pores. It is also perfect for someone who likes to touch the pimple or when you accidentally popped out the acne. I tried this patch once and I love how great it works on my skin. It sticks on the skin very well as I pasted at night before sleep and woke up with the patch still on my skin. The patch will turn white once it fully absorbs so remove it and replace it with a new one if needed. This has 24 patches with three sizes. Highly recommended for acne-prone skin.

Watsons, Acne Patch, Patch, Drugstore

Watsons Acne Patch
Just like Cosrx but this is a cheaper version one. It has 24 patches with only one size which is 1.0 cm. It works great on the skin. Absorbs all the junk well and sticks on the skin for quite a long time. But since it has only one size sometimes it doesn't suit the big pimple and the patch will easily stick out a bit. But still, it is a great product from a drugstore. Totally worth the money. If you really want the patch to works, do read the descriptions as it has the usage on how to use it. If you follow the steps, I'm sure it will work.

Garnier Micellar Water, Naruko, Klairs Toner, COSRX Pimple Patch, The Ordinary Niacinamide, The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin, Innisfree, Daiso, Sunplay Sun Aqua

Have you tried any of these skincare products before? Let me know if you did.


  1. Have never tried any one of them but those two TO products are on my list.

    1. Hope you get to try the TO products. But don't forget to patch test first just in case 😊

  2. Replies
    1. It makes me excited to try the Alpha Arbutin. Can't wait 😊

  3. Teringin gila nak try TO serum! Tapi sayang duit lagi cuz my skin masih behave atm xD

    1. TO is quite pricey sikit tapi tahan dalam tiga bulan. Simpan je duit dulu. Takpe, skin okay lagi kan, stick je dengan current skincare routine 😊

  4. Macam best je toner klairs tu!!!! 😍

  5. macam nak try The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2 % + HA tu sebab muka pun jenis penuh acne jugak

    1. Try lah, Syaza pun belum pakai lagi. Ingatkan nak buat patch test dulu baru pakai 😊

  6. The Ordinary best ! but beli sebotol je tak beli lagi dah. oor should i buy another bottle lagi ? okay boleh dipertimbangkan..

  7. i only use the garnier micellar cleansing water, memang best and always feel fresh after use it :D

  8. When it comes to monthly skincare splurge, I will spend too much on pimple patch because I just can't live without it. I bought the MiaCare but it wasn't enough.
    12 patches for RM10 is not enough for me because I got like 3-4 zits during that time of the month. Maybe I should try the one from Watsons though.

    ooo.. I gotta love the Nature Republic's face mist. The size of the bottle reminds me of my Evian face mist. Berbulan-bulan pun tak habis lagi.

    1. I rarely use acne patch before but now every time I have acne, I will apply it right away. Acne patch is very helpful as it prevent me from touching my skin. Watsons acne patch is not bad. It hold pretty well and the absorption is quite okay too.

      I know right. Face mist take longer time to finish even we use it pretty much every day.

  9. Hi dear, you can also purchase TO from here @nu.shoppu :)
