May Collective Haul

It's the last month of summer vacation and it's a pain that the school resumes on the 1st of June - my birthday! I believe I'm not the only person who wishes for an extended vacation. I haven't done anything big yet this summer. Jaycee has barely offs like once a week or sometimes none at all. We didn't got the chance to explore places and to feel adventures. Too bad! I need to make it all up after the wedding. I want to travel to lots of places by then so we badly need to earn more and save! 

However, my impulsive buying sickness doesn't help. I still have the disease of purchasing more items now than before. What's bad is that I'm using more of my money now than the past haul every month. Someone should really help me! T_T . Look at my May haul! 

Nivea Haul
Nivea announced last time that they'll be having a 50% off on ALL Nivea products. At first, I wasn't really into it but seeing all post on social media regarding the sale, I can't help but join the bandwagon. i also want to try the wipes everyone was raving about! So there, my haul of wipes, skin conditioner (my fave), soaps and lip balms. I still have a good number of lotion so I pass the lotion area except for the in-shower lotion though. 
Sample Room Haul
Sample Room is being strict with their reviews lately. For the whole month, I only had this samples availed from them. Now I was thinking if they're still worth the VIP membership.  Still not convince!
Maybelline Baby Lips Haul
When I met my high school friends at Trinoma on the 1st week of the month, I waited for them at the mall 'cause all of them were late. I needed to travel to Manila from Pampanga so I made myself early. Only to find out that I slashed off my wallet with beauty products! A lot of cosmetics were on sale and I was stoked! So there, need I say a word? :(
Revlon Colorburst Haul
This one is between impulse buy and not. I really want to build my Revlon loot. Since I started using their products, I was so amazed so I had to give in to this one. I just love Revlon so yes, I bought 3 of these and I want more!  

Etude House Hot Style Hair Bubble Coloring
I already made a review of this color here. Learn why I chose to dye my hair on the post. :) 
BeautyLabo Hair Coloring haul
Since my hair wasn't really covered much with the previous hair color, I decided to buy two shades of Beautylabo to balance the color which I haven't done yet until now. It's on sale for 50% off!
Gift
My very sweet friend from Abu Dhabi gave this as a gift. I miss her so much!!!! :(
OMG Nail Polishes
Another set from all of my impulsive buys! 
Cardstock, Colored Papers, Printing Material Bought this stuff so I can do the layout for our wedding invites. I'll try my best if I can do it DIY since it's still in December. I want to save more and give my touch on the invites I'll be doing. 
Lhasa Tops
This is not really an impulsive buy since I already thought of rewarding myself with some new outfit. I also need this every Friday in school since we have dress down days (sometimes). I love both design and it gives-off fresh vibe. 
The Body Shop Haul
Again, another impulsive stuff since it's on sale. Well, I guess the reason why I bought this is because I was killing time at the mall during that time and saw a huge banner SALE. Bummer! Haha. But i love all I got!


Winnings from Thereyoujho
I've met this mom blogger from a giveaway and loved her lifestyle posts and she's so baby face. I won her monthly comments exchange and here are the prizes. 

Samples from EverydayMe
I didn't expect to receive this because I already thought that this wouldn't come on our doorstep. When I verified from the EverydayMe staff if they sent the samples, I received an email saying they did and my father was the signatory. I asked Dad and he said he didn't received anything. (Well, I have a track of all the parcels I receive and who receives it at home) I was shocked that this arrived few days ago and the delivery man mentioned that someone from their staff did something terrible. Forgery and he was dismissed! So yeah, they sent the samples again. :)


See?! This is why I hate shopping malls when I'm alone. There's no one stopping me since fiance is busy.
Classes will resume again on the 1st so I'll work 5 days a week and will be using my off wisely. No excuses, no to impulsive shopping. (I hope!)

Well, what can you say with my haul? For those who are reading my posts asking me why I get to have so many stuff, this is the reason. Roughly 80% of the stuff I review belongs to my own pocket and the remaining belongs to sponsors, friends, among others. ;)

I think June will be lesser than this. I will try to commit not to buy unnecessary things next month and on the coming days. D-day is near and we're still short financially. Wish me luck! And stop me please!!! 

Until next month's haul! XOXOXOXO ♥

  2. I remember before that your haul encourages me to buy more :D haha. Sigh, too much beauty products for one face and body. I'm afraid my Mom would start to think of me as too materialistic. I agree that SR is becoming strict. You would notice that nowadays, there's almost no short reviews.

    It's too expensive for VIP membership especially the price of the shipping fee. I'm yet to calculate my expenses with my last VIP subscription.

    OMG, this is a lot of haul. Forgery, this is scary. Same thing happened to me too, it's LBC and they've said that my father said I'm not there. I asked my father and he said he don't know about that

    1. I am yet to discover where the glitter polish will be best paired with. It's too light than the other Girl Stuff polish I got. This seems hard to partner with anything.

  4. One of the things that I would like to try is the Belo Sun Block. I think it will still be highly commendable plus it's good for hypoallergenic skin.

    1. Yes. They're good though I must say they are really expensive but it's sure worth it. It's like you're feeling that good product is what you put on your skin.

  5. I try to stay away from malls or areas I can buy stuff on weekends to avoid impulsive spending. It looks like you had a nice haul though.

    1. It's really difficult to not buy. Haha. This month, I'll restrain myself I promise. Especially we need to finalize some stuff for the wedding.

  6. That's nice, pretty haul! I love the in-shower products on Nivea because that means I don't have to put lotion anymore especially with our humid weather these days. I'm using pantene 3minute miracle too and so far, I love this product!

  9. Wow! That's a lot of products you have there and a lot of products to review. Hehe! Thanks for mentioning about the sample room because I have been thinking of trying their VIP membership. I just didn't like how it goes. It's quite unfair that the points, after a certain time, would be deducted.

    1. Same thoughts here. Great marketing though. If they can only give half of the VIP points for good, that would be great.

  10. WOW! You've bought a lot of things last month!
