Haul: Not Your Usual Face Masks

Back with another haul! But this time, no lipsticks, just face masks haha.

I got these from Althea Korea! They had a promo on facial masks a few weeks ago. I usually turn off my shopping app notifs, but I think I'm gonna leave it on for Althea's app, so I wouldn't miss any great deals they might have in the future. That's how I found out about this promo, btw.

Got two of each for me and a friend, plus a freebie (which was part of the promo).

23 Years Old Rose Gold 24 Mask 
Let Me Skin Gold Honey Jelly Hydrogel Mask
Let Me Skin Ultra Moisture Cream Mask
Let Me Skin Ultra BubbleBubble O2 Mask

Review: Banila Co Clean It Zero Sherbet Cleanser

I ran out of my go-to makeup remover a few weeks ago, and since then I haven't had the time to go to the mall to repurchase. But then I remembered that I had two jars of this Banila Co Clean It Zero cleanser!

I ordered these from Althea Ph months ago. The first time I ordered this, I got the green variant (Resveratrol) for oily skin type in full price. A week later, Althea had a buy-1-get-1 promo, so me and a friend got one each for half the price. I decided to try the pink variant for combination/normal skin type this time. Right now I'm using the pink one, and after I finish it, I'll move on to the green.

Cleansing balms and creams aren't really my go-to makeup removers. I prefer either wipes or liquid cleansers (like Biore's micellar cleansing water, Bifesta's cleansing lotion, Etude House's lip and eye makeup remover, etc.) simply because they're easier to use. Having said that, I still decided to give this product a try. Because of the hype, mostly. Plus, the idea of a sorbet-like cleanser sounded so deliciously inviting!
