Because we had to visit several different locations during our two weeks trip, the domestic traveling really prevented me from purchasing much during the first few legs of the trip. It wasn't until we arrived at our last location -- Guangzhou/Hong Kong, that I seriously hauled. At that time I finally room in my luggage after most of the gifts we've brought were given away, and if I couldn't bring any of the yummy food back, I had to bring back something right ;)
Most of the beauty items I purchased in Guangzhou were from Watsons -- like Walgreens, they are everywhere! During our one day trip to Hong Kong, I also had a chance to visit Sasa and Bonjour.
Being the mask addict that I am, I couldn't pass up the opportunity of buying more. I actually didn't get a whole lot this time because they weigh a lot and would be a hassle to travel with. I got some more of my favorite mG masks. The individual ones were not cheap, about $4 each. But they are made with an ultra thin silk clothes that feels so heavenly on the face.
The top right corner is a peeling foot mask from Watsons. I have already tried one after I came back. Basically you wear the foot mask on for about an hour and then rinse off. In about a few days time, all the dead skin on your feet will start to peel off. The process is very gross yet satisfying. I had a few calluses from walking/exercising. After peeling, I was left with baby soft feet. Now I am totally for sandal season!
On the right side were a bunch of tools I've picked up -- pore extractor, eye brow razor, spatula for scooping out clay/cream masks, and brushes for applying mask. Last month, I went to my first facial, and my beautician used a brush to apply my face mask, it felt so good and luxurious. So when I saw these brushes at Bonjour, I had to pick a few up to try. They make mask application so much easier, no more messy fingers, and they help apply masks very evenly. The synthetic fiber makes it very easy to rinse them clean and dry.
Top right: stocked up on my favorite deodorant from Nivea. It has skin whitening ingredients to help combat skin discoloration in the armpit area from shaving.
Middle left: my best friend asked me to help her pick up a NUXE cream because it is hard to find in the US. So I picked one up for myself to try as well.
Middle right: oil blotting paper, in various cute packagings.
Bottom left: multi-layered cotton pads that can be peeled off in layers and used as a quick face mask with your favorite toners.
Bottom right: decided to give Nexcare Acne Dressing another chance. I have purchased this before from Sasa and used up the whole box, but unfortunately it didn't work too well for me. After talking to some blogger friends and reading reviews online, I realized this acne treatment is only good for certain kinds of acne, namely the raised puzzy ones -- after a few hours of putting this on, the acne dressing is suppose to soak up all the impurities inside of the pimple, and helps it to heal so much faster. It actually doesn't work well for cystic acne.
Picked up a Chanel Rouge Coco in 17 Orchidee at the duty free shop at the airport. After I came home and opened my lipstick drawer, I realized it is probably time for me to stop buying new lipsticks that I never get a chance to use. So here is a reminder for myself to not buy new lipsticks for the time being, so I can get to all the new ones I've bought recently and swatch them for you soon :)

Hope you enjoyed my haul!
