Beauty/ Shopping: Unboxing My August Hermo Haul!

It's no secret that I love shopping on Hermo Malaysia. I've been their loyal customer since 2013, and have watched them grow through their user-friendly website and top-notch customer service. One thing I love about Hermo is that they are constantly adding new brands and the latest item into their ever-expanding collection, which gives me a chance to try out more new products that aren't available anywhere in Malaysia!

Trust me, you don't wanna know how much I've spent on Hermo products already cos they're so affordable! I'll give you a hint - I'm already a Platinum member XD I haven't shopped with them for awhile, so this month, I decided to take advantage of their Merdeka Sale and other ongoing Hot Deals to stock up on some items that I've been eyeing (My wishlist is extremely long btw). What's more, I can use my accumulated credit to get discount and there's a Buy 2 Free Shipping option so I save even more money! Everything is delivered safely to my doorstep and you can see how seriously they take their dispatch. Every single item is wrapped properly in bubble wrap and there's even an additional bubble plastic ball added so as to not destroy the item during shipping. Wanna see what I got?

Son & Park Beauty Gel (330ml) | RM131.13
Finally, the ever popular Son & Park has landed in Malaysia! I have heard so many good things about their Beauty Water through overseas Youtubers, but I heard it through the grapevine that it is in the process of reformulating, so hopefully Malaysians will get to try out the reformulated Beauty Water that suits our climate more soon! I settled for the next best thing - the Son & Park Beauty Gel. This product is the most expensive item in my haul, but do note that all prices have already included GST. This is a moisturising oxygen gel which contains 87% H2O to provide vitality to the skin and tighten pores to make skin appear smoother. It seems interesting to me, can't wait to incorporate this into my beauty routine!

Son & Park Concealer Cube (4.5ml) | RM55.66
I've ran out of concealer and have been on the lookout for an affordable and good one. In the end, I settled for this Son & Park Concealer Color Cube cos the square cube design caught my eye! It looks so stylish on the outside and definitely small enough to carry around in my makeup bag. Apparently, this concealer cube offers high coverage, adherance and is extremely long-lasting. The concealer comes in two shades, mine is #21. Oh yes, did I mention that with any purchase of 2 Son & Park products, the first 20 customers will receive a FREE Lip Crayon worth RM79?
I've always wanted to try the popular Japanese brand, Canmake, especially their cheek products! I initially wanted to get the Canmake Cream Cheek but this Glow Fleur Cheeks series looks prettier because of the lovely floral design and is actually a blusher & highlighter in one tiny palette! It even comes with a tiny blush brush. From the 6 colours in this range, I chose #06 Milk Red Fleur as it has red, pink and coral blusher shades in one palette. Apparently, this blush has the translucent & lustrous staying power of a cream blusher but in powder formulation. It also contains moisturising agents so that it looks natural on bare skin and can suck up excess sebum.

There are 9 colours in the La Vie En Rose range, and each colour is represented by a L'Oreal spokesmodel, precisely composed so that each shade offers a subtle and delicate match for every woman. Even though I already owned like a gazillion pink lipsticks, the only reason I wanted to get this is because my #girlcrush Blake Lively signed the cap hehe. :p This shade is #CP24 Primrose, for anyone wondering. The colour is pretty close to the picture shown on the website. This lipstick has a sophisticated pink sheer velvet, powdery matte finish and has added pure pink pigments & glowing pearls to give off that volumised lip effect. FYI, all L'Oreal/ Maybelline & Garnier products will be shipped from L'Oreal's warehouse which is why I only received this lipstick separately a few days after I got my Hermo parcel.

Finally get to try this! I'm a sucker for cute packaging and Etude House always manages to tug at my heartstrings with their cute and innovative design. This sleeping pack is disguised as a bubble tea, but not only is it cute, the boba pearls actually contain moisture capsule bubbles. I chose #01 Green Tea as I read online that it suits acne-prone skin, which is unfortunately my skin condition lately. Oh yes, because I love anything green tea as well and this sleeping pack claims to take care of pores and excessive sebum! By the way, I never buy Etude House products from their physical stores anymore ever since I discovered Hermo, except during their Buy 1 Free 1 periods because admittedly, they are somehow priced more expensive (sometimes almost double the price!) than Hermo.

Etude House My Brow Tint Gel (Angry Birds Edition, 5g) | RM29.00
This has now become one of my holy grail products, I don't know how I managed to live without it before this! This Brow Tint Gel is a new concept eyebrow gel tint that preserves your eyebrow makeup for longer periods, even after you remove all your makeup. There are 3 colours in this range to match your hair colour, mine is #01 Brown which also happens to be the medium shade. This also has nutrition in the formulation to nourish the brows. Basically, you just apply the tint in your desired eyebrow shape and let it dry between 2 hours to overnight. The next morning, you can peel it off and your brows will be stained for at least a week before returning to its normal state! I love it so much and actually got this for my sister as she tried mine and fell in love with it too. Not sure if it's an error, but I initially ordered the normal edition but received this special edition Angry Birds one instead. Score, I got a limited edition one for a fraction of the price :p
Bioderma H2O Trial Kit Set x 3 (20ml) | RM10.00
This is actually an add-on item which I added to my cart from the Beauty Grab section before check-out. I love Bioderma's makeup remover aka micellar water so this trial kit is perfect to bring on travels as the full-sized product is extremely bulky. I think it's really worth it as there are 3 choices to try and is only RM10!

My full haul, including some free Yadah Oh! My Sunblock samples given to me in the parcel. It's so convenient, I can just sit at home and shop products from Korea, Japan and even drugstore brands with just a click of the mouse. They truly live up to their motto, 'Turnin' Beauty in a Click'. o happy that they introduced me to so many new brands, especially the cult favourite Son & Park which I've been dying to try. FYI, I've yet to try out any of these products, except maybe the L'Oreal lipstick which I'm sure is the regular L'Oreal formulation and the Etude House Brow Tint Gel. So, leave a comment below if you'd like me to do a full review on any of these products and I'll get to it!
