on brushes & cleansers....

Last friday i went on the hunt for the elusive Neutrogena Facial Bar, but it was a total failure! I went to 3 malls but i wasn't able to find it. *sniff* So, as my search goes on, my eyes wandered too which is bad for it made me buy some things that wasn't in my plans at all....

When i dropped by at the department store, i saw the Marionnaud brushes.


I have seen it before in Watsons but i didn't buy it. I was actually surprised by these brushes because they are really soft! The brushed that i bought are foundation brush, concealer & a pencil brush.. They are synthetic, but they are softer than the ones that i have like the Ecotools & Elianto. Remember my Ecotools foundation brush? This one is waaaayyyyyyyyyy better & cheaper than that!

Foundation brush - Php 139.75 - (approx $3)
Concealer brush - Php 69.75 - (approx $1.50)
Pencil brush - Php 89.75 - (approx $2)

I dropped by at Etude House because i was looking the Cleansing Water but they don't have it on stock. I saw this Sun Guard & tested it, it was better than the blue sun guard so i decided to buy it together with the Teatime Cleansing Wipes.


As i can't go back empty handed, i decided to buy the Acne-aid cleansing bar to see if it could be a good alternative for my favorite soap. I'll let you know after a couple of weeks what i think about this soap.


There you go...
I decided to not haul as much as i did before & i have actually just set a specific amount for spending on beauty 'wants'.

More posts will come as i try to complete my list of products to review.
Hope y'all have a great day/evening!

Jaa ne~!

Ellana has a brush cleaner. :3 But it's only a spray on. I use liquid soap+olive oil to cleanse my brushes. You can look up Michelle Phan's tutorial on it in youtube.

I like Marionnaud's pencil brush too. Will be looking forward for your reviews. :3
