♡ Haul: eBay Korean Beauty & Skincare Products

I patiently waited over a week for my parcel to arrive and I was so ecstatic when they came! I will be doing reviews on these products after I get a chance to test them out over a few period of time and really give my 100% honest opinion. The person I bought from was cosmeticmarket2012 and I had pleasant experience. The items were shipped very quickly, everything arrived on time and was packaged very carefully! There was also a large handful of free samples added in which is always a great bonus! The purpose for this online shipping trip was to find a new BB cream and a face cleanser to try but of course with every shopping trip, I ended up picking up more items than intended.

MisshaBBCream

I wanted to pick up this particular Missha BB cream because after reading so many reviews, I found that it was one of the better performing and more popular Korean BB creams. It is a cult classic and is one of the few kinds that has a decent colour range. I am always hesitant to purchase BB creams because I have had plenty of experiences where my skin would look fine when I apply it but then I would walk out and look so unnaturally white! After reading countless reviews and swatches, I decided to pick up the shade #23 because it seemed like the best choice for my light-medium skin. I’m so excited to wear this and give you all my thoughts! =)

NatureRepublicSoothing

This gel moisturiser is one of the best selling skincare items and I knew I just had to give it a try because of all the rave. My skin gets really red and irritated after cleansing so I wanted to incorporate a nice moisturiser that will help tone it down as much as possible. I was also under the impression that it will feel really light and comfortable on my skin considering it is so humid here in Australia at the moment so I decided to pick it up!

MisshaHairTreatment

I had no intentions on purchasing any haircare products but I came across this while I was browsing and I got curious! After reading reviews on it, I read that it was a great alternative for higher end hair treatments and I was completely sold because of its great price! =)

HolikaHolikaTint

As you know, I have an obsession with Korean lip products and I’m always looking to try new ones to find my absolute holy grail. What intrigued me about this one is that it is colour changing based on the temperature of your lips, creating a custom colour. I decided to pick up shade #3 because I’ve been really enjoying pink lip shades lately. I’m also very pleased that it’s a twist-up product!

HolikaHolikaCleanser

I was debating between picking up this cleanser and the Etude House AC Clinic Foam one but I decided on this one in the end. My skin has been behaving well in the acne department so now I have been focusing more on treating my acne scars and minimising pores. I’m excited to see if this cleanser will improve my skin!

TonyMolyTint

This is a classic red tint that many Korean beauty companies have come out with but this was too affordable I could not pass it up! I’ve tried the Benetint, which is not a very good product and I’ve heard that this is a great alternative to it so I’m keen to see how well it works!

ClioEyeliner

I have heard so many great things about this eyeliner and I was searching for a new brown liquid eyeliner. I have had my Dollywink Liquid Eyeliner in Black for the longest time but I’ve come to realise that I definitely prefer wearing brown on an everyday basis because it looks more natural and softer. I often go through phases where I use gel eyeliners, pencil liners or liquid eyeliners only so it’s nice that I now have a brown liquid eyeliner I can turn to when I’m in the liquid phase! =)

Thank you for reading! I hope you all look forward to seeing my reviews and opinions on these products once I’ve given them a fair trial. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what your experience was like. ♡

    Getting packages in the mail is always so nice especially with samples. I am always hesitant to buy stuff off of ebay but only because I had one bad experience, I should get my feet wet again because you are making me want Korean beauty products lolol. Can’t wait to read your reviews ❤

      I know! I actually got a handful of the same BB cream samples haha but there were quite a few other things too which was nice! 🙂 Oh no! I mostly purchase my Korean products off eBay just because it’s so cheap! That’s probably why I always end up with more than intended though. D: Thank you! I can’t wait to post them up! 🙂 ❤

      Yes I know! So many good reviews on, I used it today and so far it’s looking good but I’ll have to test it out a bit longer! Let me know how you find Kill Black if you get it! 😀

      Yay! I hope you’ll like it! It feels really light on the skin because it absorbs really quickly but somehow my skin doesn’t feel dry at all! It might be because I have oily combination skin though, will see how it feels for a week or so! 🙂 Thank you so much, I hope you’ll enjoy reading my future reviews! ❤

      Thank you so much! 🙂 You should definitely try ordering off eBay. I get most of my products off there because it’s so much more affordable (which means I can purchase a little more hehe). ❤ Thanks for stopping by!

        I don’t remember which one I tried, but it was definitely black, not brown. Idk…just couldn’t really get it to look nice. It clings to all of my dry spots on my lips haha and makes my bottom lip look nice, but my top lip (which is less pigmented) is much lighter. But tints in general haven’t worked out for me, so maybe it’ll be better for you!

        Hm, it might just be the Kill Black in the pen version so maybe it was that?
        Aw yeah so true, watery tints tend to do that! I only tried it briefly, haven’t worn it out for a whole day or anything so can’t really give my full thoughts on it yet but I hope it will work well! ^^ ❤ Thanks for your feedback on it!

    I have the aloe vera gel and I love it! It absorbs so quickly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I even took it on a vacation to Gold Coast with me 😅

      I’ve had the exact same experience with it so far! I was a little scared first because my face was so wet but then a few minutes later it was completely absorbed, I was so surprised haha. That’s so cool! It must have felt so refreshing on your skin in the hot/humid weather! ❤

      Hahaha go shoppinggg! And post what you pick up! 😀 Really? I’m obsessed with it right now, it oxidises on me too but it darkens a little bit so it matches my skin perfectly! Which shade did you get? :O
      It’s such a cool idea right? It changes colour to match your own temperature! I know, there’s so many lip products and there’s more coming out I don’t even know what to do with myself anymore hahaha. ❤

        Yes, it’s not bad at all considering how much I purchased! And when I compare it to makeup prices in Australia it’s really dirt cheap! 🙂 For sure you should look into Korean skincare! I’ve been using them for awhile now and I love them! ❤ Good luck on your search! ^^ You're welcome!
