A Tiny Haul

I'm back in Jakarta now! How's everyone's CNY and Valentine's day? Mine was great, had a lot of foods and got quite a handful Hong Baos :D. Didn't celebrate Valentine's day though. Anyway, before I was back in my hometown, I got myself a few things.

Shiseido Eyelash Curler, NYX Concealer in Jar, Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clarifying Lotion, Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Moisturizer and Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Concealer.

Remember that I got a set of SK-II skincare back in the October last year? I didn't review them because i think the miniature set that I got wasn't enough for me to feel the result. And they basically do nothing to me, I'm an impatient person and always want to see immediate result, so I gave up on them and decided to try a new skincare line. Although I saw a lot of mix reviews about Clinique products, I decided to try them and as my stubborn acne refuses to clear up, I got their Anti-Blemish Solutions line. Didn't get the cleanser because I want to finish my BeautyMaker Cleansing Gel first. I'll try to review them in about one or two months to see the result.

I also got a couple of concealers cause they are a must for me right now, to conceal my acne scar, blemishes and dark circle. I just wouldn't go out without them on. My skin is really bad now.

My thesis test/session (I don't know the right word) is on next thursday. I'm really nervous about it, hopefully I'll do it well. So I think I'm going to be MIA again for this one week. Will be around very soon :)

Have a great day!

Great stuff. Clinique is such a good brand!

I wish you all the best on your exams.

Hi Dina!

Nice haul, I think NYX concealer is a good concealer for those with very light-medium dark circles but it wasn't enough coverage for me. I had problems creasing too. Thanks for letting us know about the SK-II stuff. Sorry your skin is really bad now, I hope your new Clinique stuff fixes it right up.

sunniipinky said...

Good luck with you thesis, Dina! All the best!

Oh no about your skin. ): I've tried the Clinique line also and I don't think it's a good "active" type of treatment, it feels more like a proactive, preventive one...but let me know how that goes!

Please don't over stress yourself! (I'm telling you this and I'm stressing myself right now, haha) But I realize that the worst of our skin problems is a product of stress and it's pretty ack...but take care of yourself!! <3 Hope to see a blog post from you one week from now with some good news about your thesis!

that's a lovely haul Dina! i am in the acne and breakout phase as you are now :S it sucks. Tell us more about the concealer and how the Clinique stuff works for you!

I too have heard about mixed reviews of Clinique and i didn't like their 3-step system, but maybe their acne line will be better ? :D

Please, please! I can't wait to see your reviews about concealers! I am almost done with my Shiseido and really don't know what to get next!

Yay for all the beauty hauls:)I have the Cliniqu anti-blemish solution set too. It works pretty great on my skin so far. I don't use it everyday though because it dry up my skin. I hope your acne scars will fade away so and regain your beautiful skin.

Good luck with your thesis test! I'm sure you will do great<3

Catherine said...

Cute little haul!

And awww. I know how you feel. I've been struggling with acne and scars right now too... hope you get some me-time to relax - I think stress is the #1 reason for acne and the time it takes to heal. Good luck with your defense!! *hugs*

Blair said...

All the best in your thesis/session on Thursday! :)

Clinique didn't work out that well for me, hopefully it does for you :)

I'm wearing the volumizer insert in my photographs. Maybe the effect wasn't noticable? :(

twinsouls888 said...

Miss K. You said...

Dina, I know how you feel about testing time! Best of luck to you girl :) I've been away so much lately too because of 3 weeks of exams. hehe yeah the Viva Glam lisptick was too tempting for me =) plus I don't have anything like that shade. I'm like you too.. I want to see results quickly when I use products! =x

Ahleessa said...

This might be a stupid question but what is a hong bao?... hehe~ :X

Good luck on your thesis! I think you will do well since you're one smart cookie! :)

Isn't it sad how we can be tempted to buy a beauty item because of it's packaging?... hehe~ I can fall for that so easily *sigh*.

onic said...

Zoe said...

paperdollrevenge said...

Ohh what a nice haul! I hope these products work for you! I think the Lunar New Year is more important to celebrate than Valentine's Day, hehe, but it was interesting to have them both on the same day! =)

Dee said...

Nice haul hun! Hope they work well for you. I've always wanted to try concealer in a jar as I hear its similar to MAC's studio fix concealer. Hope you do a review on it (: <3

MizzJ said...

Great haul! Clinique products have worked well for me, so I hope these ones do for you too! Can't wait to see the review. Good luck on your exams :)

bowsnhearts said...

I used to have heaps of acne as well and tried out the Clinique's anti blemish range. It helps a little but didn't clear up everything so I switched to another skin care. My skin has been clearer now but I still use the anti blemish gel. It works wonderfully!

Liang said...

Great haul! I love the nyx concealer! I have not tried any of the other items though :] Good luck on the thesis test!

Musicalhouses said...

Great haul! I've always wanted to try the NYX concealer and the Shi eyelash curler! :)

Nic Nic said...

Lovely haul! I'm a fan of Clinique's Extra moisture surge :)

Hope you're not too stressed with the thesis.. stress can do so much to the skin! Good luck !!

Iyah said...

awww.. my skin looks terrible too >.< and I hope your skin will heal soon.. Don't stress out too much!

Pop Champagne said...
