My first Sasa.com Haul!!

Friday, 11 May 2012



When B from CrazyPopLock sent me her Love Package I instantly fell in love with the Sheet masks! She told me she bought them from Sasa.com and thats when my crazy lil obession with this Hong Kong based website and Asian skincare began! There are literally thousands of products including skincare, makeup, haircare, health supplements and much more with lots of Korean, Taiwanese and Chinese brands as well as high end like Clinique, Lancome, Elisabeth Arden ect.

It was so fun browsing through all the products and seeing all the different things we dont get here in the UK. A few days later I got an email from Sasa offering me free delivery over $29 (normally $75)...it was like the stars aligned themselves for me lol!! So of course I had to buy something!! Being a little bit clueless about Asian skincare and brands I just decided to pick some items which we dont get here in the UK, I later found out after watching looooads of Sasa hauls on youTube, discovering BubzBeauty channel and chatting to the lovely Jacq from Beauty Sketch (skincare guru extraordinaire) that by some fluke I did actually pick some good products! Yay!

I ordered my items on 30th April and they arrived yesterday on 10th May so it took less then 2 weeks to arrive which is not bad at all BUT I only picked my box up today because even though my order was not that big (only $36) crappy UK customs charged me £12.52 extra when it got here!! Booooo!! Apparently because the value of the goods was over £15 and came from outside the EU I was charged 20% VAT (tax) plus a standard £8 Royal Mail admin fee. I was sooooo not impressed!! But as least I know to be more careful in the future. Have you ever been charged for goods coming into the UK from Sasa or other countries?

Anyways aside from that I was still super excited...here's what I got...



Lots of styrofoam and bubble wrap to keep products safe :-)

So thats everything I got! I cant wait try these all out!!! Especially the water pack and the toner...who am I kidding...I'm crazy excited about every single thing!! lol!

I've even started putting together a wishlist for my next order! When I tweeted about placing my order on Sasa I had a lovely chat with Sam from Sam Ram Beauty who told me that they sell Estee Lauder and Lancome sample lipsticks from only $3 ~ £1.90!! How the hell did I miss that before?!  So yeah... definitely want to get that next time along with some Tsubaki haircare products.

Have you tried any of these? Can you recommend any other products from Sasa?

  2. omg really upset you got charged customs. Really scared I will get charged too.

    I have placed 2 orders with sasa before (both being over £100) and was never charged. This order now was £200 so fingers and toes crossed I don't get charged or else it means no more sasa for me =(

    Great Haul. I ordered the same Silk Whitia face masks and Jacq is skincare guru!

    Excited and nervous for mine to come =S

    2. do I see my name!? :P hehe thx for linking back to my blog, dear~ ^3^

      you picked nice stuff. do try out the silk whitia, see how you like them, I prefer other brands better than that though... e.g. my beauty diary. softymo cleansing stuff are real good, even better than department store brands. My sister swears by them.

      cheers~

    3. your do indeed! lol no worries! I tried one of the Silk Whitia's....it was really nice but I know what you mean about washing off. The other other one I have tried so far is by FaceQ which is better because all the serum get absorbed into your skin so no washing! I have two beauty diary ones too in Chocolate Truffle and Black Pearl...looking forward to trying those even more now! I've been using the Softymo cleanser every day since I got it...its nice so far and has made my face so light!:-)

  4. I like that 5 layer cotton pieces, do they claim something special about it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah me too, no special claims..its 100% cotton like all cotton pads but the reason I got this is so that I can use it for toner like it shows on the pic of the face on the box. Together the pad is the same thickness as a regular cotton wool pad but when I soak it in toner I can separate it into the 5 layers have a kinda face mask. :-)

      Not sure if we get these 5 layer ones here but I havent seen them (prob cos I havent been looking lol)

  13. wow, nice haul. I agree it is discouraging when the customs charge you extra. When I was in the UK, I was charged by royal mail for stuff I bought from iherb. Surprisingly, I wasn't charged, when I placed an order with iHerb, that too for a relatively large amount, from India. I don't know how this works. But I am glad India has some advantages I guess.. hehe
