BeautyMNL Haul and Shopping Experience

My journey to motherhood is definitely one for the books. I prepared for it - mentally, emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually, but it can get really tiring in the long run especially if you are alone with your child almost the whole day. Working (online) at night or whenever my child is asleep, breastfeeding, changing nappies and looking after my son when he's awake left me with no time for myself. I cannot even eat properly, take a bath longer than 10 minutes, more so get an uninterrupted beauty rest every night.

Less than a year after I gave birth, my pregnancy glow disappeared as well as the weight I worked hard for prior to my pregnancy. From my ideal weight of 50 - 52 kilos, I went down to 45 kilos. My under eye circles became darker, my face thinner and without a glow. I honestly felt ugly and I sometimes dread going out of the house because I do not want others to see me in that state. 

Honestly, I haven't fully recovered yet and still working on gaining back the weight I shed but I am grateful that I am no longer as depressed with my looks as before. I can look in the mirror now and smile at what I am seeing... and this is how this haul came to happen (LOL!). Now that I can spare a bit more time for my skin care regimen, I got a bit addicted to finding products appropriate for my needs.

For the last couple of weeks, I have been visiting beautyMNL.com almost everyday to "window" shop and read reviews of the products I consider buying. And after adding and deleting products off my virtual shopping cart, I finally clicked the checkout button and proceed with my order using my HSBC Mastercard. I actually have tried placing an order in the past using the same credit card but for some reason, my order cannot go through so I ordered elsewhere out of frustration. Thankfully, my order went through this time around so I'm one happy mama.

My order came in a ziploc bag aside from the courier's packaging.

TIMELINE OF ORDER

September 21 - Order placed
September 22 - Order picked up by the courier (Ninja Van)
September 25 - I received an email updating me that the order has been shipped and it's on its way.
September 28 - Order delivered at home.

BeautyMNL guarantees delivery of orders within three to five days for provincial addresses so looking at the timeline, it is apparent that the company is indeed true to their words. Actually I already conditioned myself that my package will not arrive on time since I have it shipped at our house which is outside the city. But then, my package arrived on the 5th working day since I placed my order so I definitely had a pleasant shopping experience not just with BeautyMNL but with the courier (Ninja Van) as well.

The items came in bubble wraps too!

So, for the haul, here are the items I got...

Skin Genie Pit Perfect Underarm Whitening Scrub
Skin Genie Pit Perfect Underarm Whitening Cream
Skinpotions Tomato Serum (Pump Bottle)
Be Organic Bath and Body Aloe Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Be Organic Bath and Body Aloe All Natural Conditioner

These items I ordered are all new to me. I haven't used any of these items and I simply depend on the reviews when I made the decision to purchase. I would love these products to work great on my skin since they're affordable, locally-made and organic.

I'm excited to see how these products fare and I can't wait to share my reviews to you in the days to come.
