My Holiday Haul

I did quite alot of shopping for beauty products during my trip to Asia. I mainly bought things I couldn't find in the UK, such as whitening products and Korean/Japanese brands.

First up is the Diorsnow White Reveal Makeup UV Base in Beige:

I was looking for a UV lotion that could double up as a very light tinted moisturiser. The base has a very light, watery consistency, and provides a slight touch of colour.

I also got Olay's White Radiance Brightening Serum. I haven't got round to using this yet, as my skin is super-sensitive at the moment. I don't want to put too many things on my skin until it's calmed down. Can't wait to try this though!

Sunsilk has partnered with 7 famous haircare expects to including Yuko Yamashita (creator of the Yuko straightening process) and Thomas Taw (a damaged hair expert). I bought their sunsil hairmasks. One for reconstructing damaged hair, and one for silky smooth hair.

I bought this Canmake Loose Cheek Powder in 02. This powder is not very pigmented, but it gives a pretty and natural look. My sister tried it, and loved it so much that I bought her one of her own.

Now onto the Korean brands. I came across this brand in KL. I've never heard of it before, but am not liking the name much, Baviphat. Some of their products look very similar in style to Benefit.

I bought their Apple Magic Lip Tint. The tint is a VERY subtle cherry colour (sorry, I didn't but up a lip swatch as the colour is too subtle), but the smell is gorgeous and apple-like! The lovely sales assistant gave me lots of face mask samples that come in the same cute packaging as this lip tint.

From Skinfood, I bought their Gold Caviar Serum, and Sugar Hand Cream. The hand cream smells divine (like sugarcane and citrus). I ended up buying a few for family and friends.

I noticed that Etude House has arrived in Malaysia since my last visit. I bought a blush. I don't know the name as it's written in korean, but I do know the colour is 02.

It comes with a cute little puff with a pink bow on top.

The colour is a gorgeous peachy-pink.

I also bought Etude House's Precious Mineral Brightener. It's meant to 'rejuvenate' the complexion (bascially, a highlighter).

I bought it for its pretty, pearly colours:

Now, onto my favourite product of the entire holiday haul. The Face Shop's Peeling Day in White Jewel. It's a facial exfoliator which gave me amazing results. My face feels transformed, alot clearer and more radiant. I'm now using it very sparingly as I don't want to run out!

Also from The Face Shop is The Skin BB cream. I've not used this much, so cannot comment on it at this moment!

And from one of my favourite skincare brands, SKII, I bought the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and the new Cellumination Essence.

The Cellumination Essence is great! And i can really see a difference in my skin when used together with a previously bought SKII treatment essence.

In Malaysia my husband and I, together with my family, went on a beach holiday at a cute little private island called Pangkor Laut. From a gift shop at the resort, I found this lovely makeup case with little pink elephants on it!

That's my holiday haul, please feel free to request any reviews on these products!
