China Shopping Part 1: SASA and Duty Free Haul

Traveling entails shopping. For most girls, traveling is never complete without a little shopping. I mentioned in one of my previous posts, that i will put my hauls in a separate entry. I will start with the "non-clothing" haul from Sasa Macau and HK and Duty Free Philippines.

Sasa is like "beauty product haven". It's like Watsons with more types, and cheaper products. Every corner of Macau and HK, you will see a Sasa.
I reeeeally wanted to get this facial cleansing brush By Sasa, and I say BY because it's their product and they call it the "Sasatinnie Facial Cleansing Brush". I got it in HK for HK$35

It's a cleansing brush with little bristles made of rubber that feels gentle on the skin. It feels more like a massage than a scrub

I did have an alternative which I got for free before but it was difficult to grip. I love my sasatinnie because after putting facial foam, i lather with the brush and after rinsing, my skin feels nice :) it has a suction cup at the end so that it's easier to just stick on the bathroom mirror.
Next is this velcro thingie to keep your hair/fringe away from your face when cleansing, putting on make up, etc. That's its sole purpose so that your hair does not get in the way and this I got for HK$6 with 3 velcro things in it.

And here's how i use both of them :)

Next is this donut bun maker. At first it was difficult to understand how to use this specially because the instructions are in Chinese and I cannot read chinese characters. And apparently it's for short hair but in hk i saw a lot of girls wearing this and i figured out how to use this for long hair which i will demonstrate in another entry (again because this entry is already photo heavy)

Next is the small eye lash curler. I bought this because with the regular eyelash curler, there are eye lashes that are not curled. This one is small and curls by section or just the ones that the bigger curler misses.

Baby curler :)

Because i love cosplaying and sometimes just recreating "semi-dolly" looks that can be worn everyday, i bought these false lashes. They're the partial lashes you put on the corners just to enhance.

For cosmetics, because i saw great reviews about this concealer by Maybelline, It's the Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer which is not available in Manila so I bought it. It's a great liquid concealer that doesn't crease and looks natural.

And from Duty Free Philippines, because the things are cheaper there, i bought my Chanel Joues Contraste blush in 69 Fleur de Lotus there :)

It's a pretty peachy orange pink blush that looks great for summer

I also got the Espresso MAC eyeshadow as an addition to my MAC pallette. If you buy it in the regular stores here in manila it costs around US$21 but in duty free it's only around US$16

Lastly, i decided to get an extra Laneige Waterbank Gel Cream because my old jar is almost empty and it's cheaper by US$6

Yeeeeees, i know i bought quite a lot. But i don't go to HK and Macau very often, and it's waaay cheaper there, so might as well take advantage of the opportunity :)
I'll be posting the donut bun demo and my clothing haul soon :) thanks for reading!
- Besos y Abrazos! :)
