Latest Rose Rose Haul

It's been a while since I had a good old fashioned haul post.  And this is actually two.  The first is all items from the "free shipping" section of the site - which means it's a mini-Mizon haul.  And the second is other assorted goodies.  I don't have the exact dates these were ordered / shipped / delivered any more (since these are pre-baby and baby drama orders) but I do recall that it took longer than I would have liked for these orders to show up as "shipped" although they then shipped relatively quickly compared to other orders from Korea.  So there's that.

Enough preamble - let's look at the stuff!!

(clockwise from bottom left) Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream, Mizon No. 1 King's Berry Aqua Step Up Cream, Mizon Olive Cocoa Butter Foot Cream (x2)

Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream ($4.57US at the time)
This might look like a little tube but I find eye cream goes a long way - in fact, I'm still using the Purebess Galactomyces Eye Cream that I started in November! So this one will have to wait but I am excited. . . because snails :)

Mizon No. 1 King's Berry Aqua Step Up Cream ($13.60US)
This, on the other hand, is gigantic! It has a light berry scent and a light gel-texture which is perfect for summer (I tried to take a pic of the texture for you - see below).  My one complaint is that it is not super-moisturizing (which is fine for me in the summer but if you have drier skin than I do, it might not be a great choice for you) and it is a bit sticky on the skin at first - although it does dry down without the sticky-factor.
Mmm. . . gloopy and fresh-feeling. . . plus blue!

Mizon Olive Cocoa Butter Foot Cream ($6.00US each)
This is creamy and not greasy.  And we go through a lot of foot cream since my husband likes giving foot massages and I like getting them :)

Now on to the other haul:

(from left to right-ish) Missha Premium Aloe Sheet Mask (x5), Secret Key Telling U CC Cream, Look At Me Fairy Dust Pigment Eye Shadow in No. 18 Ilene, Nature Republic By Flower Lip Scrub

Missha Premium Aloe Sheet Mask ($3.55US for all 5)
I love a good sheet mask and Missha's are quite good compared to the ones I usually buy (a bit more expensive too. . . although still totally reasonable).  Aloe is soothing and glorious, especially after a day in the sun so these are also a great pick for summer!

Secret Key Telling U CC Cream ($6.43US)
I love the Killing Me Zombie CC Cream (by Welcos Merit) that I picked up a while ago so I wanted to try something similar - surely my first foray into CC creams couldn't be HG?! Well, it's better than this one.  Although this has a lovely texture, it also has a bit of an orange cast on my fair, pink-toned skin.  I can make it work for summer but won't buy it again.  I tried to take a swatch pic. . . and my camera just couldn't handle it in a non-blurry fashion, so sorry about that!

Look At Me Fairy Dust Pigment Eye Shadow, No 18 Ilene ($9.14US)
Once upon a time, I purchased a silvery loose pigment eye shadow.  And despite using it all the time, for pretty much every "fancy" or "going out" eye look, it lasted for years and years.  And when I finally finished it, it was no longer being made :( This is a replacement and it's also very nice.  I will get a lot of use out of it and might need to buy another one. . . in 10 years or so, lol! Or maybe in another shade? Mmm. . .

Nature Republic By Flower Lip Scrub ($3.35US)
Despite using lip balms like they're going out of style, I do get dry and flaky lips from time to time.  I decided a lip scrub was in order to take care of that issue and allow my lip repairs to do their jobs effectively.  I like the squeezy tube this comes in and find it has a suitable amount of grit.  I couldn't tell you what the scent is supposed to be but it's light and not offensive.  This does a decent job getting my lips in shape which is exactly what I was looking for. . . and that price is lovely too!

so. . . umm. . . I bought hand creams. . . lots of them
(Secret Key Berry Milk, Missha Aloe, A'Pieu Melon, Innisfree Jeju Peach, Innisfree Jeju Udo Peanut, Innisfree Jeju Hallabong)

Disclosure:  I haven't used any of these yet as I have a few hand creams open - shocker! But I love the size of the tubes (great for travel or purses) and the range of scents.  I also know that I have used products from these brands with success before (or read rave reviews) so I'm excited to try them out and am sure I will like them!

Since I can't really "review" them, here are the prices:

Secret Key Berry Milk Hand Cream ($1.20US for 60ml)
Missha Premium Aloe Hand Cream ($1.43US for 60ml)
A'Pieu Melon Hand Cream ($0.93US for 60ml)
Innisfree Jeju Peach, Udo Peanut and Hallabong ($2.66US for 30ml)

And I got samples. . . I combined the samples from both hauls into one pic:

lots of cool things to try :)

I haven't had a chance to try most of these yet so I'll reserve judgement.  I think samples are one of my favourite things about hauls like this.  I've found a few products through samples that I've gone on to purchase.  How about you - do free samples make you want to buy things?
