While I was away at Grad Night, my most recent order finally arrived. I ordered some stuff off Qoo10 on 27th November, and both arrived on 2nd December – pretty fast, considering they came all the way from Seoul! My Testerkorea orders tend to take 2-3 weeks to arrive in Singapore – Qxpress is tons faster I must say.
1. Mizon 90% Toners (3 x 210ml for $15)
There was this great 1+1+1 deal for $15 on Qoo10, sold directly by Mizon themselves, and since I was in need of a toner I decided on this set. They’re actually ￦12,150.00 on Roseroseshop each – which would add up to around $45!! Mizon’s pricing schemes really confuse me, since their products are supposedly the cheapest on RRS… Anyway, thank goodness the toners were packaged in sealed plastic – the Bulg Rose toner leaked a little inside 😮
I’ve never tried these toners before, so I selected one of each:
- Witch Hazel, for ‘Pore Tightening’
- Camomile, for ‘Skin Soothing and Moisture’
- Bulg(arian) Rose, for ‘Deep Moisture and Sensitive’
I was actually most excited for the Bulg Rose toner! I love anything remotely rose-scented – I think the only scented product I own is my rosewater spray. While they smell pretty good, I haven’t managed to try all of them yet, so I’ll post a review soon.
2. Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence (3 x 50ml for $20)
I think this has been raved about more than enough online, so I won’t go into too much detail. This essence is usually compared to the SKII Facial Treatment Essence, and as such probably the Missha First Treatment Essence (I have a sample of this! I’ve yet to try it) as well. I’ll… also do a comparison of the 3 soon! Probably plus the Mizon dupe too.
My mum received a tiny 4ml sample (so cute!) of it a couple of months ago when we were shopping in the Innisfree flagship store in Ngee Ann City, and since she didn’t want it, I dumped some of it into my Missha Magic Cushion…. and then I realised I liked it. I slathered the remaining what, 1ml all over my face? and waited for results. Not sure what I expected with one use, but hey I liked it so I ordered more from Qoo10!
The essence cost me $20 for 50ml x 3, while it costs $53 for the same 150ml on innisfreeworld.com. I really love sample sized-items – they’re so much more portable, and I can keep most of the product fresh by keeping the rest away. I’d say there’s really little scent to it, as compared to many other heavily scented Innisfree products.
