April Hauls and Goals: Gifts, Purchased, Sponsored

I am starting a new series for my blog which will be entitled 'Hauls and Goals' where I will feature all the items I purchased or was given to me as gifts or sponsored items for the specific month. Additionally, I will also include my next month's to-buy list so I will keep track of whether I achieve my goal of buying that particular items I included in my post or failed to do so. My budget's at risk here, but I think of it because I got my first ever job yesterday! I also see this as a discipline-enhancing activity for I will have to make sure I am only buying the priorities. Lol. Well, let's just see if this will work! Anyway, here's the newest items I got for this month!

1. City Color Highlight Palettes (approx P500+ each)
 and Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra's Kiss (P875)

Just when I noticed my stash is all foundations and lipsticks, I decided to buy some highlighters and ended up owning three palettes in just weeks. Now, I am in need of some contouring kits to balance my face dimension lol.

2. Nivea Extra White Firming Body Serum (P260)

I got these on a Buy 1, Take 1 deal. It's long been due on my to-buy list but only decided on buying them this month because I was waiting for it to be sold at a discounted price. Nivea did not fail me though.

3. Cleopatra's Secret Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser, Mask and Soap (Around P500, I guess?)

This skin care set was given to me as sponsored items by Cleopatra's Secret (@cleopatrassecretph), an advocate of safe cruelty-free, organic and natural products. Thank you so much for sending these over! I already tried the Facial Cleanser and I like it!

 4. Marrionaud Travel Set (around P200)

Adrian bought me these after insisting on creating a home-made pepper spray for my protection daw right before he flew back to Spain. Unfortunately, he left yesterday without making me one. -_-

5. HBC Essentials Personal Wipes (49/each)

He also bought me cleansing wipes because I had already been demanding everyone for some back when I was still turning 18 (now I'm 20) and no one's granting my wish! It sometimes seems so funny how I always wanted cleansing wipes as gifts lol. Thank you for giving me a haul good for a month or more!

6. Real Techniques Core Collection (P900)
Powder Brush (P500+)
and Foundation Brush (P500+)

I want to invest to high-end makeup brushes now so I'm slowly throwing away old unbranded ones to make way for new purchases. Since Real Techniques brush sets are probably one of the most affordable raved products to date, here I am slowly buying every brush in their collection sets.

7. Johson's Baby Bath
Belo SunExpert After Sun Gel
Belo Soap and BB Cream
Belo Sanitizer

I got all of these from Sample Room! It will be forever one of my favorite shopping and saving site lol. I'm definitely coming back for more random purchases!

8. Freebies

I got these samples when I bought some of the stuff I mentioned above. Thank you so much to the shops who provided me freebies!

And now, for the items on my goals!

-Contour kits
-Real Techniques Brush Sets
-Beauty Blenders

And that's all for tonight! Anything in mind to purchase this week or the following? Share it here with me! Happy blogging!
