US Hauls & Freebies

3:44:00 AM


Hi guys, I've been busy quite a bit so please forgive the lack of posts. Anyway, here's another haul post for you, to complete my US hauls & freebies that I've been promising you I would posted ;p I know some of you love haul posts because I kept receiving good responses on my twitter to do another haul post.

But before we get to the hauls, I just want to share some exciting news to you that I am now part of the KBJ Stars Bloggers!

KBJ stands for Kawaii Beauty Japan which is basically a one-stop media where you can learn all about Japanese beauty. You can read my previous post here about KBJ. They have a special program called KBJ Stars which there are exactly 13 bloggers who were chosen as their Star Bloggers, and I am one of the bloggers, yay!

Thank you KBJ for making me one of your Star Bloggers, I am definitely proud to be one of KBJ Stars :D - You can see the rest of the 13 KBJ Stars here -

So if you love everything about Japanese things, especially beauty-related things then please do head on over to KBJ Facebook page to learn more about them and also about everything Japanese. They also regularly have quizzes and giveaways in which you could win various interesting prizes. So go on and head over there now :D



Okay, so now let's move on to the hauls & freebies..
If you read my last haul post about my Bath & Body Works haul, I mentioned there that I did my first Black Friday Sale haul back on winter last year, I shopped online and then have the items shipped to my bro in law's address who was living at the states during that time. And then my bro in law shipped all the items to me (along with my other purchases) a few months later. And that is why I just got my purchases several months after the actual black friday sale ;p

Aside from the beauty hauls I also did a little fashion haul at Victoria's Secret online store because they too were having an awesome sale during one of their yearly annual sale. I didn't really get that much at VS, I originally wanted to buy one of their signature hoodie and/or yoga pants but they were still a bit expensive for my pocket so I just bought their deeply discounted undies instead, and a couple of comfy basic t-shirts.

Okay, so to cut things short, here is the complete list of things that I got during the last Black Friday Sale and also a little from last year's Christmas sale too:
These are just a part of the complete haul.
Not all of the items are photographed in this picture.

Another closer look:

I mostly did my beauty hauls on online stores like drugstore.com and beauty.com - because sephora doesn't accept paypal and they also doesn't accept credit cards from most countries (boo) - I decided to shop at drusgtore.com again because I still got a few extra dollar bonus from my last drugstore.com purchase that I need to use before it expires. And I also shopped at beauty.com for more high street brands such as Smashbox, etc.

Aside of those 2 stores, I was also taking advantage of the huge black friday sale discounts at Bath & Body Works (BBW). Actually my last beauty haul post was about my BBW hauls, you can read it HERE if you want.

So the photo above are the majority of products that I purchased, and here are more details of all the items I bought:

Bath & Body Works hauls:
Sweet Pea Body Lotion
Frosted Snowberry Fragrance Mist
Sea Island Cotton Shower Gel
Anti-Bacterial Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in: Ice Ginger Bread, Citrus Garland,
Cranberry Tangerine, Fresh Sparkling Snow.
5-Pack Holiday Treats Bundle HandBac Sanitizers in: Fresh Sparkling Snow, 
Holly Berry Wreath, Candy Cane Bliss, Sparkling Pink Champagne, Winter Cranberry.


Drugstore.com & Beauty.com hauls:
I bought a few items from both stores and they are pretty random because I wanted to try a few different brands that I've never tried before. I love trying on different brands and these are some of the brands that I've been eyeing about. I'm also vulnerable to cute packaging so I'm always drawn into set packaging like these ones below:

Burt's Bees Essential Kit
(been wanting to try Burt's Bees for the longest time!)

Smashbox Try It Kit
(it's my first time trying out Smashbox too!)

Philosophy Cheers To Us box set 
(includes: Jingletini and Peppermintini Shower Gel/Shampoo/Bubble Bath)

 Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser
(gotta have stock of this! My HG cleanser!)

 One of my weaknesses: Lip balms!
Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Cherry
EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit

 St.Ives Apricot Scrub (x2)
Been curious with the famous apricot scrub from St.Ives that everybody raved about!

 Jean Pierre Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Pads with Microbeads
I added this to fill in the quota in my shopping cart to be eligible for free shipping, but I'm actually curious with the exfoliating cleansing pads. This is like a cleansing towelettes, only it comes in the shapes of pads instead of tissues, and this one has a rather rough surface  with microbeads to exfoliate your skin while you're cleaning it ;)


 Victoria's Secret Hauls:
 VS were having their annual sale and I took advantage of it ;p
Long Sleeve Sleep Tee in Victoria Pink
Burn-out U-Neck Tee in Sexy Little Pink
Ruched Front Bikini Panty
Pink Favorites Cotton Hipster Panty
Ruched Shorty Panty
Lace-Trim Boyshort Panty


Last but not least, my bro in law and his wife were coming back to Jakarta about a month ago, and so they brought the last few things that didn't got shipped earlier. I bought an Elf Warm Bronzer and Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle hair conditioner from the drugstore.com purchase above which didn't get shipped earlier because I was afraid that it would break and spill, so I asked my brother in law's wife to carry it on her bag on her way here. I also bought two more EOS lip balms because I've tried the first one that was shipped earlier and I immediately fell in love with it so I decided to get two more for back-ups ;p

Aside of that, I also got a couple of freebies which are gifts from my sister in law and my mom in law. Here are the freebies (and a couple of my leftover purchases):

 ELF Warm Bronzer
Clinique Take The Day Off Make Up Remover
Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Treatment
MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Girl About Town
EOS Lip Balms in Summer Fruit, Strawberry Sorbet, Pomegranate Raspberry


The Clinique Take The Day Off MakeUp Remover was a gift from my MIL, she asked me what do I want as a gift and I asked for one of my HG eye makeup remover which is this awesome product from Clinique. Did you know that in US Clinique are way more cheaper than they are here? The price difference can be half cheaper over there, it's pretty crazy you know..

Meanwhile, my sister in law bought me a MAC lipstick because MAC is also fairly cheaper over there, the lipsticks are only around $15 where as here it costs more than $20 (sekitar dua ratus ribuan). I chose the shade of the lipstick which is Girl About Town because I wanted to try a fuchsia color ;)

One of the EOS lip balms are also a gift from my MIL. I didn't know that she also got me an EOS lip balm. I had asked my sis in law earlier to get me 2 more EOS lip balms, and then when she handed me the lip balms my MIL also gave me another one, so now I have 3 stocks of EOS lip balms, yay! Oh and my sis in law also kindly let me have the 2 lip balms as a gift, meaning: I don't have to pay for them. Thank you sissy.. :)


Okay, so that is it for my US hauls and freebies. I still have another collective haul to post which is basically a compilation of all my beauty hauls from April to June 2013 recap. I already did the Fashion hauls part (which you can read HERE), so please stay tune for my Beauty compilation haul. I have plans to upload it in a couple of days.

If you also have recent hauls, please leave the links below on the comment form because I love reading other people's hauls post, and I'm sure a lot of us do too :)
