Bornprettystore, Croatia & Italy Beauty Haul

Hello beauties!

New week, new blog post!

I was so exhausted by work this weekend, I couldn't wait for the Sunday evening to arrive, to snuggle up in my bed and sleep for at least good 12 hours!

I had developed a slight infection on my thumb (I hurt myself at work a few weeks ago and didn't treat it properly!), so tomorrow I'm going to see my doctor about it!
I'm already treating the area with an antibiotic cream that was given to me in my local pharmacy, but I'm still worried and I'll feel more at ease once my dr. has a say on it!
Please keep your fingers crossed it's nothing serious!
I'll keep you posted!

Anyway, back on topic of this post...Beauty haul! A big one!
Over these past couple of weeks I gathered quite a few new goodies! So I thought I'd share, especially because I'm very happy with all of the things I picked up :)

So here we go...

(click on the play button above, to watch my new haul video!)

at bornprettystore I got a few things that were on my wish list for a while now!
I was especially looking forward to trying out the real B.B.cream (we all know that asian B.B. creams are the real thing, and the B.B. creams of, mostly european famous brands, that have overflown the market these days, are just another word for regular tinted moisturizers! Aren't they?)

Lohashill B.B. cream

These rouge caresse lipsticks are very moisturizing, on your lips they feel as a lip balms!

  1. Hi Sonja :),
    such a nice haul!Could you please tell me more about that Melem balm.Is it just for lips or also for hands?I'm asking you,because I'm looking for a tiny balm to take with me when I go out at night.You know,that it would be small enough for a clutch,but that I could use for my hands and for the lips.A kind of 2 in 1 product.
    I'm diligently voting for,I wish you the best :).
    Take care...with your finger :).It'll be fine...

    1. Hello Jasmina!
      First of all, thank you so much for your support and voting for me so diligently!
      Thank you from the bottom of my heart <3
      As far as Melem goes, I think you could really use it for this purpose too! It's actually a multi-purpose balm and I think it's great idea to carry it in your purse on a night's out!
      Baciiii xoxo
