Naruko Haul

I've heard so much good things about this line of products from fuzkittie on youtube. Its a Taiwanese skincare line that tries to use as much natural ingredients as possible. Its gentle on the skin but effective. For the longest time it was only available online but I really didn't want to pay for international shipping, both expensive and unnecessary because it increases the price so much that the products are no longer affordable. When I discovered that a store opened in Southern California, I literally ran out the door. In my first purchase I picked up the Naruko Niaouli Tea Tree T-Zone Blackhead Remover and the balancing serum from the same line and I loved the results. In my second purchase I picked up the Naruko Magnolia brightening and firming serum and night gelly and again had incredible results. In my last trip I picked up the Naruko Narcissus BB cream, foundational serum, day lotion as well as the Naruko Job's tears whitening and cooling lotion which is a hydrating toner.

This is the packaging for all the products I picked up, I forgot to take pictures of the magnolia line packaging.

I sincerely love all of these products but I can't do a review yet because I've only used it for about two weeks. I want to use it for at least a month or two before I give it a comprehensive review but it is looking really good so far. My skin responds really well to it, it loves this stuff and soaks it up.

I purchased all these products from a store called Beauty tips. The sales lady there is very knowledgeable. She really tries to recommend you products that match your skin concerns and needs and not try to sell you everything. I bought so much products because I wanted to, not because she pushed it on me. She speaks both Mandarin and English and the store is incredibly clean.
