Hong Kong Skin Care Haul

14 Jan

Welcome Back Meebsies,

I am so glad to be back! Sorry for not posting in such a long time. As hard as it may be to believe, I could not find Wi-fi anywhere. I went through some pretty serious withdrawal symptoms. ToT  Then after I got back from my trip, there was a lot of catching up to do. The world doesn’t stop just because you do.

However, it was worth it! ^O^ This would have to be one of the best trips I have ever gone on. The food, scenery, and shopping were as promised…AMAZING!!! I have to admit that I went a little insane when it came to beauty shopping. I just couldn’t help myself. Everything was so ridiculously cheap.

Since my overall haul is so big, I thought I would split it into a few post. This one is all on skin care products. This consists of a combination of the mainstream products many bloggers haul, and some local brands. I had a good girlfriend in Hong Kong who recommended these not so well known products that only the locals really know about. She claims that they are just as amazing as the main stream products, but almost half the price. Thanks to her, I actually learned a lot of do and don’t when it comes to buying beauty products in Hong Kong. It’s a little lengthy so I will write about my tips in another post. ^-^
