Happy Thursday, today I’m talking about yet another haul from YesStyle, as I fulfilled another £30.00 minimum spend order. As I’ve discussed in my previous hauls in February and March, I aim to fulfill the £30.00 spending threshold to get free premium shipping. This time around however, I’ve bought a mixture of clothing and cosmetics, which makes it a unique haul compared to the previous two.
So as you can see from my photo above, my package arrive with the packet of the clothing wrapped around the bubble-wrapped cosmetics. This seemed to give some extra protection for the products inside, although one of the boxes did look a teensy bit squished. I’m not particularly bothered about this though, as the products inside were unharmed.
Like my previous orders, which arrived in 7 and 8 days respectively, this order arrived really quickly. It was dispatched 3 days after I confirmed the order, which was dependent on the item of clothing I ordered taking between 3-5 days to be ready. The order itself arrived 7 days after that, which is remarkably fast. All three orders I’ve placed in the recent past have arrived very quickly, which is really impressive to me.
The package was held together by a thick strip of cello-tape, and removing it separates my package into two parts. I ordered one item of clothing and three items of skincare, so let’s go through what I ordered.
The item of clothing I bought is the ALIN Style Open-Front Kimono Jacket, which I picked out knowing the weather is going to warm up, and my office is going to become more of a greenhouse. I like to keep my arms covered up as often as possible, but most of my layers are thick cardigans, hoodies and pullovers. These aren’t particularly comfortable during the summer, so I decided this was a good time to find something lightweight.
I really liked the look of this kimono for it’s cute floral design that it’s in mostly neutral tones, making it more approachable for me to wear. I can see myself wearing this with a white summer dress if I feel brave enough to dress a little more femininely, or over a vest. I plan to take photos wearing it once the weather warms up, so for now, please be patient.~
I also like that it has a little belt made from the same fabric, which I have draped over the kimono for the time being. It has the same print as the rest of the kimono so it blends in really nicely.
I was motivated to make this order after wanting to replace my hand cream, so it’s the core of this order. Of course, I needed to reach the spending limit, so I must have spent four hours at least, just clicking through my wish list on the site and comparing products. That sounds ridiculous, I know, but for some reason I was really serious about this.
The first item pictured above is the COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. I don’t use sun screen often as I don’t leave the house often lately, but I need a back up of my EGLIPS Multi Unique Sun Block, which I’ve discussed on my blog in the past. I don’t want to get caught out during the summer, so I was happy to pick out a replacement.
As you may have noticed, this is the box that took a little beating before it was delivered, but the tube itself is perfectly in-tact.
The core of the order is the SOFNON Tsaio Calendula-Lavender Repairing Hand Cream. I’m hoping the product isn’t too strong in terms of scent, but of all the scents that I’m likely to get along with, lavender is one of them. I was surprised that the tube is made of some metallic material. It’s cool to the touch but I’m not really upset about it. I’m just used to plastic tubes for most hand creams I’ve used so it was a little bit unexpected.
I wish the box itself wasn’t made of plastic as I’m not sure if I can recycle it, but that’s not YesStyle’s fault. Otherwise I’m looking forward to trying this product out, so expect a review in the near future.
The last product I ordered is from Dear, Klairs. I haven’t tried the brand before, but I currently have a Vitamin E mask in my routine, and when I saw the Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask, I was intrigued to give it a try. It was only after I received the product that I realised this, but the instructions are as follows:
“After cleansing, apply an adequate amount of product to the skin and pat lightly to absorb.”
This might seem relatively trivial, which arguably it is, but this is what I like to do for my current Vitamin E face mask, which I re-purposed to work like a sleeping mask rather than a wash-off style mask. So there was a strange yet amusing feeling delight when I was reading these instructions earlier.
Either way I’m feeling really excited to try all of the products I ordered this time around, and I will review them in due course when I use them. So thank you for taking the time to read my blog post, it really means a lot to me to receive your support. I hope you are happy and healthy, and I’ll speak to you again soon.
