Mid-week Mini Haul



Went to ATC today to pay my Globe bill and as expected, I couldn't help but drop by PCX (one of my fave beauty stores). At first, I just wanted to buy some eye makeup remover but ended up buying a few more things.




Saw this In2It eye makeup remover. It only costs Php129.75 (less than $3) and I've decided to give it a try. I'm used to using Ponds Cold Cream in removing my makeup but I'm always worried that it may not be good for my eyes. And since my hand sanitizer is too big for my makeup pouch, I bought another one in a smaller bottle, Alcogel this time. I've also heard a lot of good reviews about Carmex so I decided to try this one as well. Got the mint flavor and boy, do I love it! Hopefully this will keep my lips from chapping.. Nivea doesn't work for me and Carmex is less greasy so I love it more.




Oh and I'm so happy that I finally got hold of ELF Glow. This is always OOS every time I visit the ELF booth at Southmall. I couldn't believe my luck when the SA at PCX told me that it's on stock (it wasn't on the shelf yet). As it turns out, they just had a delivery today. Talk about great timing! And I just couldn't resist this Candy Shop Lip Gloss tin in Cherry Bomb. The scent was really super sweet, kinda like sugar. It'll also be my first time to try falsies so wish me luck. I hope I don't end up poking my eye with it.. teehee!




Oh, and I finally decided to get this Bench Lifestyle card since the membership fee is just Php100. According to the SA, you earn 1 pt for every peso you spend on their stores (bench, bench fix, aldo, celio, charles & keith, TFS, human Pedro, and dimensione). With PCX, the ratio is 1 pt = 4 Pesos. Still a good deal, considering that I always shop at these stores, especially TFS and PCX. I'm not just sure though how to use points earned. Somebody enlighten me..

me too.. haha! i accidentally poked my left eye while trying to put it on.. oh well, more practice i guess.. really love the scent of the candyshop gloss. It kinda feels weird on my lips though. there's like a mild sting.. probably a plumping ingredient?
