Haul: Korean cosmetics from W2Beauty including Etude House, Tony Moly, Holika Holika

Korean cosmetics haul from W2Beauty including Etude House, Tony Moly, Holika Holika
The third and last part - for now - of my Korean cosmetics haul was from W2Beauty. The website is run by the lovely Alice who makes sure there's a solution to every problem with which you go to her. As I had said in previous Korean beauty shopping reviews from Jolse and Cosmetic Love, you need to go through the items on each website and fix on the lowest prices.
W2Beauty ships worldwide, with just $2.35 for registered post. Best of all, you get a $5 voucher if you sign up here or use the code 2758605 in the registration form. The inventory is massive and Alice sends more freebies and samples with your order than the other websites - samples she thinks you can use, based on what you order.

So here are the Korean skincare and makeup goodies I hauled from W2Beauty:

  1. Holika Holika Dessert Lip Balm
  2. Tony Moly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack
  3. Holika Holika Dark Stealer Triple eye cream
  4. Etude House Play Nail glitter nail polish #21
  5. Lioele AC Control Trouble Patch
  6. Oh My God It's That Time Again Heat Patch

About the products in detail. As usual, I picked up the more established brands such as Etude House, Tony Moly and Holika Holika.
How cute is the Holika Holika Dessert lip balm? It is a very smooth, hydrating lip balm and the effects last on my lips all night. However, there is no tint or colour. The balm is super-creamy and great for the drier months. I'll definitely pick up more of these; they make nifty stocking stuffers.

I decided to try the Tony Moly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack after I gave up going for facials. It's going to be home-done for a while now, and this should come in use. Oh ok, I admit it - I fell for the cute tomato jar.

Holika Holika's Dark Stealer Triple Eye Cream promises to work against dark circles, bags and fine lines. Kind of like Philosophy's Eye Hope, which I'm using right now. It should be interesting to see how this fares against Philosophy.

Who can resist Etude House? Look at all that glitter! My nails are going to be so blingy over Christmas!

Lioele AC Control Trouble Patch has these little flat stickers you're supposed to put over breakouts. Should come in handy during emergencies, provided it doesn't eat up my skin. Ah well.
I ordered the "Oh My God It's That Time Again Heat Patch" on impulse as well. You're supposed to stick it on your lower back when Auntie Flo turns up and it's supposed to make you feel warm, relaxed and pain-free. As I'm on antispasmodics anyway, I don't know if I will get around to using this, but I may give it to a friend, or even try it and see how it gets along with Auntie.
Now for the samples. There's even a Korean candy (already eaten up)! Two full-size sheet masks, lip tint, highlighter, BB creams, moisturisers....

I'm already loving the Etude House Milky You One Step Cleansing Foam. There was quite a bit of the product in the sachet/pack and I'll do a detailed review of this soon.

I'll definitely order from Alice in January after I'm back, and hope she sends more candy! Remember, to order from W2Beauty, use the code 2758605 in your registration form and you'll get $5 off! And, if you sign up and like their Facebook page, you get another $1 off. Fancy some Korean beauty goodies this Christmas?
