You guys have requested for reviews. So here is a few of the many items I have purchased over the past few months!

Innisfree OLIVE Real Cleansing Oil (180 ml)

- This oil cleanser has a very thick consistency, a clear olive colour and has a rather strong floral soapy scent - therefore it does contain perfume/fragrance
- Product is dermatologically tested 
- Use with dry hands and emulsifies pretty well
- Cleans relatively well but would need a couple of more pumps to clean up heavier/waterproof makeup 
- I appreciate the fact that this oil cleanser contains freshly harvested organic olive oil so it's less harmful for the skin; as most other oil cleansers contain mainly mineral oil
- Purchased for US$17.30 so it's nicely priced for a cleansing oil that contains organic ingredients. 
- 7.5/10

Sana Extra Long Mascara (Black)

- Has an extremely small wand and doesn't clump, therefore it's useful for lower lashes
- But this mascara just merely coats the lash and does not lengthen my lashes at all so I was very disappointed
- Is waterproof but it does smudge a little after 3hrs, also it disappears completely after around 6hrs
- Purchased for US$16.30
- 4/10

Shu Uemura EYE LASH CURLER Eye Lash Curler (with one silicone refill pad)

- Curls lashes nicely
- Extremely curved for eyes that are shaped deeply, therefore wouldn't be as useful for Asian eye shapes as seen through the comparison photo with the Shiseido curler
- Priced AUD$45 in David Jones but purchased for US$15.80 on Sasa
- 7/10

Kose MEDICATED SEIKISHO Clear Lotion (150 ml)

- This toner has a jelly/watery texture, is colourless and a slight floral/herbal scent
- Is slightly acidic so is gentle on skin
- Packaged in a hard bottle with a small opening so the product doesn't come out very easily
- Very effective on acne prone skin because it helped clear up the acne on my forehead - with the help of a mixture of some other products of course, but this product became a part of the process
- Can be used as a treatment mask essence for oily/acne prone skin - just squirt some on cotton pads or clean sheet mask and leave on skin for 15mins
- Purchased for US$18.40
- 8.5/10

JUJU Cosmetics AQUAMOIST Vitamin C Cream (50 g)

- A very light clear gel type moisturiser but does leave skin sticky for a while after application so I use this at night before I go to bed
- Main moisturising component is hyaluronic acid which has anti ageing properties and increases the absorbency of water as it captures water particles from the air and locks it into our skin so therefore this cream gave me more bouncy and highly hydrated skin in the morning
- Contains vitamin C for a whitening effect but rather, it just brightens your skin up instead
- Really appreciate the fact that this contains no fragrance, colouring or mineral oil and a weak acidic formula so it is not harmful for the skin; great for sensitive skin types and any gender
- A little goes a long way (2 pearl sizes per application) so this lasted me around half a year with 1 application every night
- Purchased for US$15.50
- 8/10

NARUKO MARJORAM AND LAVENDER Classical Whitening Night Eye Gelly (30 

- Gel type eye cream so it is light, however it does sit on the skin for a while before it gets absorbed
- Claims to fight puffy and dark eyes, but I haven't seen much of an improvement relating to under eye circles or puffiness
- You do need a moisturiser formulated specifically for your eyes since the area of your under eyes does not contain fat, so you can get milia on that area if you use your regular moisturiser; this eye cream/gel is great in the moisturising department and will keep your under eye area well hydrated without causing any problems
- This has a slight herbal/lavender scent that is very calming 
- Comes with a little scoop for sanity reasons and the product is caged in a very sturdy glass jar, so the packaging is rather luxurious
- A little goes a long way definitely applies to this product - half a pea size for each eye; so this will last a very very long time
- Ingredients list: Phytoferulin®, Portulaca Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin E Filling Spheres, Botanical Oils Filling Spheres, Alga Extract, Solomon Oil, Matricaria Maritime, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide, Ellagic Acid Filling Spheres, Kojic Acid, French Lavender Extract, Botanical Essential Oils.
- Purchased for US$15.40
- 6/10

Koji SPRING HEART Long Lasting Eyeliner (Dark Brown)

- Comes with a smudger and sharpener attached at the end
- Twist styled pencil eyeliner
- Lasts for around/more than 6hrs when set with eyeshadow
- Very pigmented and easy to blend if needed - great for natural look
- Water resistant and doesn't smudge
- LOVE THIS! ESPECIALLY FOR THE QUALITY AND PRICE; Beats many high end eyeliners
- Purchased for US$6.60
- 9/10

K-PALETTE Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h Waterproof (9 g)

- As shown in the pictures, you can get extremely think lines to relatively think lines
- Not very pigmented at times when not well shaken
- Colour is a deep black
- Can last for hours when set with an eye shadow
- Does not smudge until after around 6-8hrs
- Easy to remove; I use cleansing oil
- Does not last 24hr as claimed but does go well with 12-16hrs
- Purchased for US$14.10
- 8/10

That's about it for today! There's more but I think this post is long enough. *chuckles
