August '18 Haul 🌻


September has been a very busy month for me (even when I wasn't, I spent my time hibernating), so I never had time to post anything on my blog. I actually have more than fifteen pending reviews to write, including a sponsored one. I had some extra time yesterday, so I decided to make a quick photo-session with the things that I got during August. A bit late, but I enjoy writing my haul posts, so here we go!

1. BiorΓ© UV Perfect Protect Milk


The very first thing that I bought in August! Honestly, I used to be lazy in taking proper care of my skin. I focused mostly on moisturising products because my skin is quite dry. But after going through breakouts and all, I decided to actually be more concern about it. I learned that sunscreen or sunblocks are very important to protect your face. I'm still in the process of looking for one that suits me, since my previous one was a bit expensive for a broke student like me. 

BiorΓ© UV Perfect Protect Milk had been the cheapest in the drugstore that time, so I decided to give it a try. Despite the price being a lot lower than the previous product I used, I found that I love this one more! The watery texture blends in well and quickly into my skin, leaving a matte finish too (some sunscreens make your face look oily) which is great because I don't prefer to have a shiny face.

2. Cosmoderm: Vitamin E Facial Cleansing Foam & Vitamin E Cream


My skin had a horrible breakout recently, so I decided that I needed to change the facial wash I was using because it was not helping at all despite its claim of working well with sensitive skins. I've had my eyes on Cosmoderm for quite a while. It's a product of Malaysia and certified Halal too, so I wanted to have a try on it. I don't have a say yet in it, because I've only used them in probably around a month. But as of now, I haven't had any breakouts (except for several small ones on my forehead, thanks to stress LOL), which means I'm pretty satisfied with it. I'm hoping the Vitamin E Cream will help lighten my acne scars too.

3. Semi Transparent Cat Tote Bag


Transparent PVC bags are in trend now, and I was so ecstatic when I found this bag. I love transparent bags, but mostly I prefer only a minor part of it being transparent. I'm not really sure I want all my belongings to be shown, since they're a mess. 

Anyway, this tote bag has everything that I wanted: pink, transparent, cat design and just being a tote bag! If you read my July Duality Box unboxing, you'll know just how much I love tote bags. I'm also a sucker for anything pink, and of course, it has a cat shape on it! How much cuter can it be?

4. No Face / Kaonashi Mini Fan


Pretty sure I've never mentioned this before, but I'm also a No Face enthusiast πŸ‘» I'm not sure why but it is one of the cutest character that I love (maybe due to the fact that I'm also a horror story enthusiast?). Despite my love for it, this is actually my first No Face related item. When I first found it, I immediately went "aww". If I was in an anime series, my eyes would have become huge hearts πŸ˜ I initially only wanted to buy it for a friend's birthday gift, but since it's too adorable, I couldn't help myself. I had to get one for myself too! 

— Purchased from a store in Berjaya Times Square

5. Bath & Body Works: "Mermaid Off Duty" Seaweed Body Cream & "Sweet as Strawberries" Cleansing Hand Gel


I have finally achieved my goal of buying something from Bath & Body Works! ✨ They have so many choices and if I was richer, I probably would have splurged many more kinds of products in there. During the time I was there, BBW were promoting their new launched collection, "Sea-Tox" and "Water". It has everything to do with mermaids, seaweeds, ocean and hydration! They were very interesting (oh yes, I'm a bit biased here, no doubt) and I decided to try its body cream first. Well, it was the cheapest product there, so yeah that's basically why. It has this rich ocean-ish smell and I'm absolutely in love with it! Very hydrating too and not sticky at all.

I was also in need of new hand sanitiser. There were a variety of scents to choose from, and I can say that the Strawberry one smells the best. I was aiming for peach, but I didn't quite like the smell.

— Purchased from Bath & Body Works, NU Sentral

6. E-Books: Floored, Her Favorite Color was Yellow & Wicked: Witch and Curse


These are the e-books that I bought in August. I was actually only looking for Floored (to be read for Juliet's Library book discussion), but buying a single book feels rather regretful. So I bought three, because why not? I chose to buy Wicked: Witch and Curse because I've been looking for it in ages to no avail. As for Her Favorite Color was Yellow's, I just loved the colour and simplicity of its cover.

— Purchased from @sanctuared on Carousell

7. To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo


I've had my eyes on To Kill A Kingdom ever since it was released; there were a lot of good reviews from bookstagrammers and on Goodreads too. It was pretty much sold out in all the bookstores I went to, I only found it by chance on Carousell for a cheap price. I didn't hesitate to get my hands on it because sirens, mermaids, pirates, royalty? Definitely a must have. It is now one of my most loved books!

— Purchased from @n1msaynutt on Carousell

8. Unnatural Creatures: Stories Chosen by Neil Gaiman & All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven


A huge thanks to @thespinesbookstore on Instagram for sending me these books, in exchange for promoting their Merdeka Sale. If you're looking for new and cheap books, you should definitely check out @thespinesbookstore! They have variety of books and the service is great too πŸ’›


9. The Distance Between Me and the Cherry Tree by Paola Peretti, Snow White: A Graphic Novel by Matt Phelan & Snowglobe by Amy Wilson


August really has been the greatest month for me as a book lover πŸ’› Many thanks to Pansing for sending me these review copies. I've been busy this month, but reviews on these books will come up real soon!

— Received from Pansing (@definitelybooks)

I'm going to try to post something at least once every two weeks from now on. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with more contents soon. Wish me luck, and I wish all of you a meaningful day!

Till next time ♡ Love, Aishah Humaira'
