Haul: Korean beauty shopping from Cosmetic Love, including Etude House, Innisfree and Nature Republic

Korean skin care and cosmetic haul from Cosmetic-Love
I spent the better part of my money in October hauling Korean beauty products from four websites. You've already seen the ones from Jolse (here) and Wishtrend (here). Here's my Korean cosmetics haul from Cosmetic-Love.com.
I had compared the prices of each item across all the websites, going in for the cheapest from each. Shipping is free but if you want registered post, you need to pay $2 which I did. I received my order in late October, a mere week after I placed it, along with some nice freebies.

Here are the Korean beauty goodies I bought from Cosmetic Love:

  1. Etude House Wonder Pore Corrector
  2. Nature Republic Original Power Brightening Eye Cream
  3. Etude House AC Intense Pink Powder Spot
  4. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Primer
  5. Innisfree glitter nail polish.

The Etude House Wonder Pore Corrector had been on my wishlist for a long while. And, I've been using it since November 1. It is already an HG product for me. What you do is, apply it over the pores after your moisturiser or serum, just before the primer/makeup. It instantly mattifies my super-oily face and minimises the pores. I'll take pictures of the process once my breakouts-from-Lancome-Visionnaire subside. I know a lot of people are iffy about the Wonder Pore Corrector since it contains alcohol. But if you had the kind of face I do, which, in one day, produces copious quantities of oil enough to fuel a small country for a week, you wouldn't mind either. Will repurchase!
Etude House Wonder Pore Corrector review
Nature Republic Original Power Eye Brightening Cream was added to my cart after a good deal of thought. I asked people to go through photos of my eyes on my Facebook page and asked them to recommend brightening, cooling or anti-wrinkle eye cream - the majority picked brightening, so here we are. This comes with a fabulous spatula-cum-massage-ball which I shall keep even after I run out of the cream. And, no parabens!

I've read on quite a few blogs that the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Primer is the best primer out there and controls oil better than all the others. I can't vouch for that - since I'm in love with the Etude House Wonder Pore Corrector for now, I haven't opened this primer yet. All in good time.
Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Primer review
If you've followed my blog on Facebook (here), you've seen those graphic photographs of my face after I began using Lancome Visionnaire. Painful pimples all around. Without my dermatologist's knowledge, I ordered the Etude House A.C. Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot after reading rave reviews and seeing photographs of this product's magic on pimples. It is too early to tell, since I've only been using this box for the last three days. I'll do a detailed post on this soon.

Here are the free samples from Cosmetic-Love.com:

Jolse had sent me more freebies for the same amount, so I'm not as pleased with that side of things from Cosmetic-Love.

 Oh, and packaging was very good:

I have another Korean cosmetics haul post coming up, from a fourth website. It's only just reached!
Oh, and, Wishtrend has released a new Wish Box. The 14th box, reviewed here, was sold out a couple of days after I bought it. A nice mix of face makeup and Korean skin care in the new box, called Cosmic Bloom, for $19.99 and you can avail of free shipping when you sign up, if it's your first time. I expect the box to sell out before November end and have already ordered mine just now. Get your Wish Box here.

    1. I've had to pay 1.2k customs for my Urban Decay palette (taking the total cost of the dang palette to a whopping 5k) and for one Glamabox - sheer chance. By the way, I've heard that Strawberry refunds customs duties as a goodwill gesture - just tell them this happened and show them the receipt.

    2. 1.2 k customs for a palette? Why?

  4. Hi, thx for dropping a comment in my blog :D! Great haul btw, i especially like that EH's Wonder Pore Corrector, i only tried a sample of it but i think it's totally awesome and it's already been added to my (ever growing) wishlist! I've been hauling both Korean and drugstore stuffs like a mad person lately *sigh*, why are they all so so addictive? LOL.

  5. Have you tried HK based sites like Sasa and BonjourHK ? On a recent visit I hauled cosmetics from HK incl Korean brands like no tomorrow. But need to replenish now- these are big shops in HK but was wondering about their online presence.

    1. I've seen Sasa but haven't bought from them. I think they're quite authentic. Haven't heard of BonjourHK, though.
