Karton.PH Online Shopping Experience + Mini Haul
Since 2019 started, I have been holding myself back on visiting online shopping websites unless I have the need to purchase something that I cannot buy in physical stores near me. But when I recently discovered this online bazaar, www.karton.ph, I think I may have to rethink my decision. Lol. They have a wide array of products to choose from which is why I was not able to help myself but add something to my cart. Well, a lot of things actually. Haha. And here, I want to share to you everything I got from Karton.PH.



To give you a little background about Karton.PH, it's an online shop (of course, duh) that provides our local entrepreneurs an alternative platform to sell their products while giving us, shoppers, a hassle-free online buying experience. Because we all want that, right? Add-to-cart-and-wait-for-it-to-arrive-at-our-doorstep thing. What makes Karton.PH different from the usual shopping websites that I visit is they have almost everything that you're looking for. Looking for something for your home? They have room fragrance sprays, decors, placemats, storage boxes, and a lot more. Whether you're looking for arts and crafts materials, skincare products, shampoo bars, snacks, spices, beverages, bottled delicacies, they have it for you. They have such an amazing collection of local, handmade, and artisanal products and cuisine. Visit their website now and thank me later.

To be honest, I had such a difficult time holding myself back but I had to stick to the budget. There were so many to choose from. And as promised, here's a breakdown of all the items that I ended up buying.

Karton.PH Online Shopping Experience + Mini Haul

Seakid Crispy Spicy Pusit (PHP 83.60) - This crispy fried squid is indeed a great snack or appetizer. I love that it has just the perfect balance of saltiness, sweetness, and spiciness. But don't eat this in public places if you don't want to be stared at by people because this has a strong squid odor. Haha.

Seakid Crispy Regular Dilis (PHP 52.80) - Another great snack from FoodSource is this Crispy Dilis or Anchovies. I'm honestly not a fan of anchovies but I have to say this is actually good. It's fried to a perfect crisp and has just the right amount of spices. This has a spicy variant but they ran out of stock so I'll have to include it on my second purchase then.

Spud Buds Sea Salt Shoestring Potatoes (PHP 82.50) - This potato snack has got to be my newest favorite! It's made with 100% real potatoes sourced directly from Benguet. The crispiness of the potatoes are just perfect and it has just the right amount of sea salt to make each spud flavorful. I ordered three packs of these and as of this writing, only one remains and I'm currently munching on it already. Will I order more of this? NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

Organature 100% Pure Cacao Tablea (PHP 148.50) / Chocoloco Inc Premium Tablea Powder (PHP 218.90) - I'm a big fan of tablea because I love a good cup of native hot chocolate in the morning so when I saw these, I couldn't help but add them to my cart. The one from Organature are cacao blocks perfect for champorado or chocolate rice porridge. And the one from Chocoloco Inc is already in the powder form which makes it best for making a hot chocolate drink.

Amanecer Naturals Classic Lavender Soap (PHP 220) - I don't know what's gotten into me but I have been obsessed with soaps lately and when I saw that Karton.PH had a skin care category, I immediately looked into it and browsed for soaps. And they did! They had a LOOOOOOOOT of choices I was so confused. But what really caught my attention was this classic lavender soap from Amanecer Naturals. I am a fan of lavender because its mild and pleasant fragrance so I instantly added this to my cart. Lavender is also known to have a calming effect that helps in relaxing our mind after a long and stressful day. The soap is very rich and creamy but it does not melt quickly. I use this every night and I have to say that I was really surprised that the lavender ingredient in the soap really does help in calming and relaxing my stressed brain. Haha.

Fippo Bath Vitamin C & Alpha Arbutin Soap (PHP 198) - Shut up and take my money if we're talking about Vitamin C! Lol. But really, I have a thing for skincare products with Vitamin C as the main ingredient because I have very uneven skin and I would love to even it out with the use of brightening products. This soap from Fippo Bath has two powerful brightening agents: Alpha Arbutin and Vitamin C so there's no time for hesitating, baby. This went in to my cart instantly as well. And just like the classic lavender soap, this one is very rich and creamy too. I also love that it doesn't have a strong artificial scent like the other brightening soaps I have tried before. I use this in the morning on my face and in the dark areas of my body. Since it has been only four days that I started using it, I can't say anything yet if it's effective in brightening those dark spots but I like that it didn't break me out and it did not dry out my skin too.

Peppermint & Elemi Roll-On (10mL) (PHP 181.50) - I'm slowly becoming a fan of relaxing oils because I love how it effectively helps in calming my mind. And since I'm such a sucker for anything minty, this Peppermint and Elemi roll-on got in to my cart as well. The minty scent is just so refreshing and I use this whenever I feel like my airways feel congested. I apply this on my pain areas to relieve the pain as well.

Christine Lhuillier Parfumerie Nectarine Blossom (Lotion) (PHP 231) - I stock up on lotions at the office because my skin tends to dry out because of the air conditioning. I currently have a hand cream but I don't like it so I've been on the lookout for a great lotion. I haven't heard of the Christine Lhuillier brand before so I googled for some reviews and if I can find any recommendations on which variants are good. There was this one blog post that mentioned Nectarine Blossom so I chose this solely because of that post. This milk lotion has a weird scent and I'm not sure if it's really how nectarine smells but I just don't like it. The bottle is actually quite big so I have no choice but to use it and endure the scent until it runs out. Also, its moisturizing power is not that great because I had to re-apply every hour.

Christine Lhuillier Parfumerie Apple & Peony Eau de Cologne (PHP 143) - Choosing this cologne scent was based on what I have researched too. The author of the post said she was already on her third bottle of this Apple and Peony cologne because she loves it and that the scent stays longer than a cologne should. So I got curious. I'm not really the type who loves fruity scents but I trusted that review. And I'm glad I did. The apple and peony scent is really nice and when it gets in to your skin for a while, it'll smell even nicer. And I have to agree with that reviewer that this cologne has an amazing lasting power. My colognes will only last me an hour (if I'm lucky) but this one can last for three hours. And at that time, I can still smell the scent that I don't really need to spray some more but I just do because I'm obsessive like that. And oh, I bought two because I thought I might love it so I had to stock up but my sister took the second bottle because she likes it too and now I have to buy another one or maybe two or maybe three and stock it up. Hopefully, Christine Lhuillier will open a kiosk in SM Cebu malls so I won't have to order online and wait for it to arrive when my bottle runs out.

Fragrant Home Candles Stinky Shoe Deodorizer (PHP 165) - I have sweaty feet so when I wear flat shoes without foot socks on, my shoes' sole tend to get a little stinky. My shoe deodorizer just ran out so when I saw this stinky shoe deodorizer while browsing, I immediately added it to my cart. I spray this inside my shoes every after wearing and it's really effective.

Crafts Online Small Tray (PHP 418) - This tray was the very first item that was added to my cart. When I first saw this, I instantly fell in love. It was the perfect tray for my product shoots. Haha. Blogger problems. This tray is 100% made of pine wood with a varnish finish. Its dimensions are 14"L x 9"W x 2"H. It's not too big and it's not too small for me. It's perfect.
