A super belated RoseRoseShop Online Haul Review

Hello pretties!

Apologies for my long absence from blogging.
I have been so busy at work and all I have been doing in the little spare time I have is eat and sleep zzzzz....
The MIA Diana and Natalie have also been very busy lately so ho-hum.

Anyways, today I will be reviewing a not-so-recent haul from RoseRoseShop.

I have seen many good reviews online regarding their online shop (they started out on ebay), so I decided to give it a go.

They offer very low prices with their products compared to other online sites but do keep in mind you have to pay for shipping, which is calculated by weight. I.e. the more you order, the heavier the package, so the higher shipping fee you pay.
However, the shipping fee isn't very expensive and I worked it out that the more I order, the more I "save".

My package delivery details as below, with the standard delivery option (take about 7-21 business days delivery).
Ordered: 7 Feb 2014
Shipped: 12 Feb 2014
Received: 20 Feb 2014
They took 4-5 days to put my order together and the shipping time took 8 days-ish.
That is a total of 13 days/ nearly 2 week, the standard time I expect getting a parcel shipped from Korea to New Zealand.

Now to the actual haul:

*Dun Dun Dun* The Box itself....

This haul is actually a combo between Diana, Natalie and me.
Since we live under the same roof it is easy to do combo orders online as our shipping address is the same haha...

The box isn't very big although we did order a lot of items.
The items were packed closely and neatly inside so if you shake the box nothing moves *get the idea?*

The sample sachets were packed right on top of the box.
Most items were neatly bubble wrapped. Very happy with the packaging so far...

...except for the NATURE REPUBLIC Phyto Massage Cream as you can see.
This was placed right in the middle of all the other items.

But it would be better if they bubble wrapped that too as I have previously experience breakage of un-bubble wrapped products in mail...

What we got (clockwise from top-left):

- [SKIN79] BB Cream Mini Black Set 4pcs - Diamond, Pink, Gold, Pearl
- [SKIN79] The Oriental Gold Plus BB Cream SPF30 PA++
- [SKIN79] White Reviving Skin Radiance Solution - 30ml 
- [NATURE REPUBLIC] Phyto Massage Cream Mango - 150ml
- [SKIN79] Mini Lip Gloss Rose Pink 1.1g   
- [TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL] Pumpkin Sleeping Pack Samples - 10pcs 
- [YET] Bush Volume Mascara - 7g 
- [TONYMOLY] Intense Care Dual Effect Sleeping Pack Samples - 10pcs 
- [YET] Art Class Liquid Eyeliner NO.Brown
- Pack of samples

We were happily going through the haul when Natalie noticed her [YET] Mascarala Curling Mascara - 7g NO.Black she ordered was missing!
I am not sure how often RRS missed packing items in their order, but this was a bit disappointing as we were looking forward to it since we have never tried out the Y.E.T brand before.

We asked RRS to send us the missing item but they only gave us 2 options: refund or sending the item with our next order with them.
Since we weren't sure when we will place our next order with them, they gave us a refund.
This issue was sorted out quite quickly with their customer service but I would have preferred if they could send the missing item that they have missed out packing,

And next onto the items in our haul...

[SKIN79] BB Cream Mini Black Set 4pcs - Diamond, Pink, Gold, Pearl

We got 2 of these - 1 for Natalie and 1 for me!
I love mini products as it allows me to try it out before paying more for the full sized item.
If I don't like it, only a small amount is "wasted". If I like it then I know I am not throwing my money down the drain when I commit to the full sized item.

I already have the Super Hot Pink BB so this small sized tube will go straight into my handbag for those emergency-BBcream-required-moments *lol*

[SKIN79] The Oriental Gold Plus BB Cream SPF30 PA++

This is for Diana as the product description is most suited to her skin.

It is recommended for inelastic, dry skin.
The adenosine and caviar extract is for wrinkle reduction and skin nourishment.
Moreover,  it contains SPF30 PA++ which is the minimum SPF we should be wearing in NZ thanks to the extra UV exposure we get in this corner of the world.

*Diana will be digging into this product very soon so a review on this should be on its way*

[SKIN79] White Reviving Skin Radiance Solution - 30ml

I bought this because I am obsessed with anything that is whitening/brightening.

 [NATURE REPUBLIC] Phyto Massage Cream Mango - 150ml

This product I must have because it has mango in it!
This would be my first Nature Republic product and my first massage cream.
The instructions says to massage it onto the face and then wipe it off.

I have only used this once, and it didn't break me out after.
But I will use it a few more times before reviewing it so I can decide what to say about it.

 [SKIN79] Mini Lip Gloss Rose Pink 1.1g  

Reminded us of Anna Sui packaging plus looks very cute plus come with a mini mirror inside. 
Also very cheap, so we had to have it. One for each of us.

 [TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL] Pumpkin Sleeping Pack Samples - 10pcs

[TONYMOLY] Intense Care Dual Effect Sleeping Pack Samples - 10pcs

I love sleeping packs. But I use them only so rarely I doubt I will go through a whole tub before it dries out.
So imagine my excitement when I found these individually wrapped mini sachets!
Great to bring along traveling or over to a mates place for the weekend.

I found that each Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Packs, I could use it for up to 4 times. The TonyMoly ones lasted me 2 uses.
Plus I woke up with super smooth skin in the morning with both products, and no breakouts. Woohoo.

[YET] Bush Volume Mascara - 7g

The only Y.E.T mascara we got. Natalie should be using it shortly.

The size of it  is quite small, as expected from the weight.
Great to bring along in the handbag for touch-ups during the day.

[YET] Art Class Liquid Eyeliner NO.Brown

We got two of these but none of us has used them. So no comments on it as of yet, aside from the cute packaging.

Pack of 5 samples

Missha, TonyMoly and It's Skin samples

RoseRoseShop is currently doing a free sample event where they will give you a small pack of 5 random samples with your order. All you need to do is post in their forum.
I have not gone through these yet, but I love these small sachets as I can try out more different products from various brand.

Overall, we were very happy with our products and they were as described on RRS website.
We love RoseRoseShop for their super cheap competitive prices with reasonable shipping fee. Keeping in mind that the more your order the more you actually save as the shipping prices doesn't go up very much.

We were unlucky enough to have a missing item in our haul, but they did handle the situation well and quick enough.

One more thing to add is that the stock they have is quite new, according to the manufacturing dates on some of our products. So kudos on that.

Would we go back to shop for more in the future? Definitely, when it's time for our next big haul.
