New layout and a KoCo Mall Haul + Review

I'm not sure if anyone checks my blog regularly enough to notice, but... new layout! I downloaded a trial of Photoshop and had some fun coming up with a layout. Please let me know if you have any feedback about it, positive or negative! I also have a bright sky blue version that I can use, if this one isn't popular. C:

Anyway, on to the haul + review!!

Someone linked to this new website KoCo Mall on a Asian Beauty 'forum' I frequent, and... the prices. It was just too much for me to resist. I caved.

From what I understand, KoCo Mall is just the online shop from what was a popular and reputable Amazon seller Seoulglamour. Seoulglamour closed their Amazon store in favor of creating their own website. All of the products I recieved are real as far as I can tell right now, but just comparing the Tony Moly gloss bar to one I got from Yesstyle, I see no reason to worry that they're fake! (:

Anyway, I'm just going to do a quick review on my experience shopping with them, then post haul pix.

So, the website is nice, professional, well organized, and has a variety of popular Korean brands. They currently have a $5 voucher when you sign up with them, which I used for my purchase. I think you have to spend a certain amount of money befor eyou can use it ($10 maybe?) but still, $5 covers quite a few products at those prices, so it's definitely worth taking advantage of!

Something I really liked was that they shipped out so fast- my product was shipped within 12 hours of me placing an order, which was really awesome. I also recieved the package quite quickly- it shipped out on the 22nd of March, and I recieved it on the 2nd of April. That's like 6(do saturdays count?) working days, which was pretty damn good from my experiences.

Their English is pretty good and I had no issues with communicating with them. They use Korea Mail for their packages, aaaaand they definitely helped me avoid customs fees, if you knowww whaat I meeaaan. ;) I really appreciated that, especially since I've been hit with stupid fees the past few times (£12 customs fees on £12 worth of stuff, what?). So yea, I would definitely recommend KoCo Mall for ordering from in the future. A lot of their prices beat Sasa, and they have some things that Sasa doesn't!~

And now for the haul!!

No box, which isn't awesome but it's not terrible. Considering the prices of the products, I'm not complaining.

It was definitely well wrapped, so atleast that was nice (:

They included 10(!!) free samples of all sorts of cute Korean products, which I really appreciated. There will definitely be some mini-reviews coming up for some of those!

Etude House Missing U hand cream, in their peach version! 
It smells like HEAVEN and is sooo cuuuute. The container is reusable as well! Super happy with it.

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Sleeping Mask
I've heard so many great things about this, so I'm really looking forward to using it. C:

 Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar - Juicy Cherry
I've used this already and I'm really happy with it! It's a bit pinker than I wanted, but still a really good color. A review of this and my peach one will be up next week ~

SkinFood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream. 
I have really dark undereye circles, and all the reviews I read said that this was actually really effective, so we will see! It smells amazing, so atleast there's that if nothing else!

So yea, that's about it for now. Have you ordered from KoCo mall or tried any of these products? If so, what have you though? I'll be posting another review later this week, so look out for it!

    Never ordered from them before. Maybe Ill do it in the future.

    1. Aw, thank you! One of my friends thought I should try to add a bit more sparkly or pixely things to spice it up, I guess? I might try some more stuff out in the next week.

      And yea, I might order from them again soon. They're one of the only places I can find that has Holika Holika's Peach Girl BB cream at a decent price!
