It’s time for a Taobao haul! It has been quite some time since I shopped at Taobao and just found out that my previous Taobao haul was also during September last year. What are the odds!
I HAVE TO EMPHASIZE THAT THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST NOR AN ADVERTORIAL AND I PAID EVERYTHING USING MY OWN MONEY AND SHIP VIA 65DAIGOU.
I have purchased quite a number of times from the famous China based online shopping portal and have been loving how affordable it is!
BLACK SEAMLESS COOLING STRETCHABLE SAFETY SHORTS (￥12.90 S$2.90)
The material is really cool and soft to the touch and is also extremely stretchable! In addition, I love the scallop hem and high waist so it won’t be visible underneath any clothings.
TEE SHIRTS (￥13 S$2.92 FOR BANANA, ￥15 S$3.37 FOR RAINBOW)
The material of the tees actually feel rather good! I’m not a huge fan of ladies’ cutting for tees because the sleeves are always too short. However, the length of these are just perfect. They come in various different sizes and M is already rather large.
PATTERN SOCKS (￥1.90 S$0.43 EACH)
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with these socks at less than 50 cents a pair. Furthermore, the patterns are so cute!
GRADIENT PASTEL SHOELACES (￥9 S$1.98)
This is the prettiest shoelaces of all times! I love how the pastel shades gradually changes through the laces and can foresee it sitting grogeously on my shoes.
PINK GLOW IN THE DARK SHOELACES (￥3.50 S$0.79)
This pair of shoelaces is super sneaky. Being an innocent pink in bright sunlight, it changes to a cool glow at night. It’s just so cool!
THIN SOFT SHELL TRANSPARENT HANDPHONE COVER (￥16.90 S$3.80)
When they say that it’s a thin soft shell, they really aren’t kidding with how thin it is and I like that. The printing however, is really not the best. But it’ll do for just S$3.80!
MOOMIN PLUSHIE HANDPHONE CASE (￥22.80 S$5.12)
I’m SUPER excited for this! Of course, this is reserved only as a weekend phone case. A huge Moomin plushie at the back of my phone is so adorable! Childish? Yes. BUT CUTE. (Don’t judge! Hehe.) If you’re thinking how would I be able to use my back camera, the case could be turned! Smart move Moomin.
SITTING BAYMAX HANDPHONE STAND (￥3.80 S$0.85)
I. Cannot. Even. Baymax sitting on the table, looking at me, waiting for me to place my phone on his legs is just plain CUTE! It’s less than a dollar and I would say that it’s totally worth it.
TRANSPARENT MAKEUP BRUSHES CASE (￥105 S$23.14)
My most precious find on Taobao ever, I wanted to get a case that could house my makeup brushes, keeping them away from the dust so they’ll be as clean as possible. And this is just perfect! It’s a bit on the pricier side but it does comes along with 2 bags of pearls and a square container.
MAKEUP HOLDER (￥30 S$6.74)
I have quite a huge stash of makeup but I usually choose a few that I use daily for a period of time before I change them up. And opening/ closing my drawers isn’t the most ideal. So I thought this holder could help keep my usual makeup products of the period on the table for easier access.
DIY PAPER MASKS 50 PIECES (￥28 S$6.29)
SILICONE MASK (￥18.80 S$4.22)
I have a ton of mask serums that I can utilize with these DIY paper masks. Simply wet them with the liquids and I’m good to do. To increase the effect, using a silicone mask over it would help retain the liquids. I’ve heard it’s the rage and you may be able to find it at some Daiso stores (not sure about Singapore though), but it’s pretty difficult to find hence purchasing it online.
BB CUSHION SPONGE PUFFS (￥12.90 S$2.90)
Back up sponges for all my BB cushion pacts!
FOLDABLE TABLE MIRROR (￥12 S$2.65)
I hate clutter and if I can keep an additional item on my desk, I would. So when I saw this foldable mirror, I was immediately sold. It may not be the best mirror but it works for me.
FOX FOREST POUCH (￥11 S$2.42)
Not going to lie, I do not recommend this pouch. It’s super low quality and honestly, I felt duped. 🙁
SANITARY PADS POUCH (￥2.10 S$0.47)
Another random buy, I thought it would be nice to have a pouch for my pads or tissues.
BAG HOOKS (￥1.30 S$0.29 EACH SET OF 2)
Seems practical so I got them, and they work pretty well.
CHECKLIST AND MONTHLY CALENDAR NOTEPAD (￥2.30 S$0.52 EACH)
Something for the office, I thought both would be helpful to organize my day.
MINI ROSE HANDLE WHISK (￥2.30 S$0.52)
A random buy, I definitely do not need this. But, it’s just too cute! And probably, I just wanted to feel more atas (high-class) using it to stir my morning coffee.
MACARON EARPHONES (￥9.80 S$2.20)
I honestly bought this just for the adorable Macaron earphone case. However, there are pretty sharp edges on the macaron and the earphones are one of the worst earphones I’ve ever tried. Not an item that I would recommend, even for just $2.20.
PIRATE SWORD BARREL GAME (￥21 S$4.72)
THIS IS SUPER FUN! The quality of the barrel may not be the best, but hey it works. I foresee it being the perfect drinking game among friends or simply just a break-ice playing game.
WALL MONTHLY CALENDAR (￥38 S$8.54)
Sharing an online calendar is what Kel and I used to do. However, it gets messy after a while. So we decided to go the old school method and get a wall calendar! Thing is, an empty month wall calendar is actually quite difficult to find and I’m glad I chanced upon this one on Taobao.
Note that all the prices above do NOT include domestic shipping costs, overseas shipping costs and agent fee. Also, the prices fluctuate really quickly so the prices that I wrote serves as just a guide.
