Review Distribution

About Me

I am a college student on a budget in hopes to find good deals and gems from big stores and small shops! I am also a content creator and I like to make videos on lifestyle and fashion/beauty!

How I Can Help

I have a YouTube Channel (justjoanne) and TikTok (justjjoanne) where I post hauls and lifestyle/travel vlogs! For my hauls, I shop from different fashion stores and mostly Korean Beauty but like to try out different things! I hope my videos and reviews can help those who are interested in buying from these places make good decisions on which items to purchase :)

Interests

Vlogging, Photography, Korean Beauty and Music!

This South-Korean clothing brand is a very popular one and they are probably more known for their make-up 3CE. I've bought their makeup before but this time I wanted to try out their clothing. I ordered this tank, cropped cardigan, and long sleeve dress. I love these items and I was so impressed with their shipping!

I actually bought these HEATHYOGA Bootcut yoga pants from Amazon but I wanted to write a review for their website. First of all, THESE HAVE POCKETS! They're super comfortable and I love to wear them for daily wear. Leggings usually feel really tight especially at the waist (i know that's the point) but sometimes I just want the legging feel but not be sucked in each time I wear them. These are now my go to since they aren't extremely tight and JUST THE MOST COMFY LEGGINGS EVER. Plus, the bootcut is very flattering and trendy nowadays~

I've ordered many different sized photos from Shutterfly multiple times over the past years and they always have promotions! There was this one time they were giving out free their reusable bag and all you had to pay was shipping. I was already paying for my photos shipping so I decided why not! I use this bag all the time (as you can see it's erm dirt in the photo) and it's extremely durable. I'm literally carrying the heaviest groceries around my neck and the bag is isn't broken which is crazy!

Highly recommend ordering photos or other personalized items for your family and friend or even yourself like me :)

I make YouTube videos and in order to not get copyrighted for the music I use, I have to get royalty and copyright free songs. As long as you have a google account that has a YouTube channel linked you're good to go! You can also use these songs on your instagram, you'd just have to link it to your account as well.

They have a FREE option as well as a premium membership which includes benefits such as being able to access only premium music, download songs on mobile, and more like getting priority creator support.

The only reason why I took a star off this review is because their website is honestly a bit hard to use, its quite slow and things take a while to load which is a little bit inconvenient but I'm still using it and wont complain for free content!

Ps, they also have a section for artists/musicians but I can't comment on that because I'm not one~~

The reason why I am giving this review a two-star is because of this bundle they were selling it was a really good deal. However, without the discount, their items are quite pricy and in the end I was unable to successfully purchase and I'm quite frustrated with that. I tried buying this skincare set from one of my favorite YouTubers but wishtrend's website is not great and there were many problems during the purchasing process.

One annoying thing I wanted to note here is that I was literally logged into my account but went to click on my past orders, I was brought to another page where I needed to log in again, so I "did". What I mean by that is they said something like "there is no account associated with this email" WHAT!? I tried resetting my password and waited for the email to come into my inbox. I got NOTHING which made NO SENSE because I got an email saying my order succeeded the night before.

I know this is a little confusing review but long story short, I've decided I won't be trying to purchase from this site again and I hope I'll get my 100% refund back.

Ps I'm now seeing so many people talk about the bad customer service wishtrend has so yeah no thanks bye

I made my first purchase from Krave beauty's website this past year and I'm still using their sunscreen (which I love and use everyday!) I really love this brand as the Founder Liah Yoo (who is also a beauty YouTuber), made these products with a lot of passion.

My friend actually bought with me, she got the cleanser (in the photos) and they all seem very nice! I just got the sunscreen to try first and it's my everyday sunscreen now. I personally think this is the best sunscreen out there (I've tried many Asian brands) and this one feels the best. Not only does it apply well, it also has no white cast and it smells really nice too!

They also have a matcha cleanser and the Great Barrier Reef serum (popular as well) so I Highly recommend buying from their shop and testing out the products, especially their beet sunscreen :)

This is literally my all time favorite jewelry brand because they have the CUTEST earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and more all at a very affordable price! Their materials are also quite good for the deal you're getting and that's why I've bought so many!

Bonny & Read is a Taiwanese jewelry store that also ships internationally. I've been buying mine here in Taiwan so I'm not sure how long their international shipping takes but it shouldn't be too long.

I purchased these items (in the photo) over 4 months ago and I wear them every day! Seriously recommend taking a look at their site and check out my Tiktok here: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMeSNxKhk/

JWPei is a sustainable Taiwanese/LA brand that uses vegan leather and recyclable products.

According to their website, they use high-quality canvas, polyurethane, and fabrics made from certified recycled plastic bottles. Which is great!

I saw one of my friends have their wallet so I decided to take a look at their website. They have a variety of bag styles to choose from and a bunch of colors as well!

I've used zagg's invisibility screen protectors for years now and I wouldn't switch to any other! One thing that keeps me from changing is the warranty they offer. I've broken my screen protector so many times that this warranty is such a nice bonus.

The website is easy to use and you can get a new screen protector with a few clicks on their website. They also used to require you to send in your screen protector when you get a new one but they stopped doing that this past year I believe due to covid or just trying to cut down shipping extra stuff.

As you can see in the photos, their warranty replacement packages are so nice too! It makes it super easy to replace. They used to have this other guide to place on your phone when adding a new screen protector, but they stopped including it which is fine because that's an extra piece of plastic that'll go into landfill. # environmentalism

Anyway, currently using their InvisibleShield Glass+ Privacy (black screen) and it's quite nice!

If you've been on any social media platform recently, you've probably seen this brand called CASETiFY. (They've been promoting their products through influencers like crazy for the past month) Anyways, this brand sells trendy phone cases and now even a one where you can design-your-own case! I bought one of these customized cases myself recently and it turned out very cute :)

The reason why I give this review a 4-star is because I actually had some trouble with the purchasing process. I'm not sure why but I couldn't purchase this product and ~multiple~ of my cards didn't go through. I had to contact customer service for help and this happened in one weeks span which tbh irritated me a bit. The designing site was okay, it was kind of hard to drag photos in and organize the photos but I wouldn't say it's too big of a deal. I got my case a whole month after I purchased and I understand it takes time to print the design and shipping during covid is slow but this took a dang long while.

» MY RATINGS:
Website design and ease of use: 8/10
Shipping: (internationally) 7/10
Pricing: 7/10

In the end, I don't regret purchasing from their website but I do wish the process was faster and smoother. Their cases are amazing though so do buy them if you see them in store!
Check out my IG post *******@justjjoanne for pictures and other cases I've bought from them :) this is my fourth one from them~

My friend recently bought from Doe Lashes and got it shipped overseas. It took around 3-4 weeks which is reasonable due to international shipping and covid. I wanted to write this review based on her purchase (shipping wise) but I wanted to share my past experience as I have purchased from the lashes personally too when I was back in the states. This was back in May of 2020 and my shipping took only 5 days which was quite fast considering it was also during covid. They have very cute packaging and the lashes are amazing. They are great for Asian lashes and they have different styles so you'll definitely be able to find one that suits your taste! Doe lashes does a really good job promoting their products online and having others share their experiences so you'll be able to find many reviews everywhere.

I have been reusing my two sets of lashes around five times for each one. I'm just careful when I clean it and I love how durable they are. I don't wear false eyelashes that often but I feel like I will be wearing them more in the future so I'll definitely be buying again! They have great discounts and also their shipping is pretty fast. You can't go wrong with this brand!

Olright shampoo, a green beauty pioneer, originates from Taiwan. They were recently named winner of the "New Sustainable Product category and Sustainability Pioneer runner-up" on top of other awards. Read more about them here if you're interested! https://www.oright.inc/news/views/38

My cousin first introduced this brand to me as I was looking for a good shampoo (didn't want to buy those cheap ones from the drug store anymore.) I went to their store and I instantly fell in love with their setup. Not only did I love the organic and vegan aspect of it but I also loved their store set up (hehe)! It's so beautiful and aesthetically pleasing (so is their packaging). I do have to say though, their products are a little more expensive than I would like to spend on shampoo but I'm willing to put more money into a very good product like theirs. The caffeine shampoo I got really works as my hair has been growing back quickly (I lose hair very easily and I even have a "bald spot"...)

I will definitely be going back and purchasing more of their shampoo as well as try their other products as well! Ex: lash serums, skincare and more!

On another note, Olright is indeed a bit harder to find online (even here in Taiwan) but check out their website to see if they ship to you because I highly recommend trying it out!

About a month ago, I bought from Aliexpress and because my item was being shipped from China, it said shipping was going to take a month or so. I was actually a little surprised when it arrived in a little over a week. This was my first purchase from this website and yes I am a little skeptical of it but hearing my friends purchase from them and now purchasing myself I'm not as suspicious with this company. Indeed it is possible that some people may not have the best experience when purchasing and so that's why it's sometimes a hit or miss. I think I was really lucky with the seller I bought from because they shipped out my item really quickly and I got what I paid for. The site does have a lot of things at a very affordable price and even people buy from it to resell. I definitely will be purchasing more from this site again in the future if I need something cheap!

Tip for consumers:
Be sure to compare other items and their prices. Also be sure to read reviews!!!

If I had to explain Olive Young in a sentence I would say this shop is "Korea's version of Ulta". They have really affordable make up and skin care and their stores are everywhere. When I was in Korea I went multiple times and really miss shopping there. Not too long ago they launched their online website and I'm really excited to shop on there. I know they have a variety of products pretty much all the K beauty you can think of. It's kind of hard to find a good affordable K beauty in the states so the purchasing from Olive Young's website is great and I love how they have international shipping too! I will update this review/add a new one in the future when I purchase from their site :)

For this specific review video, I talk about their jeans, which is one of the more difficult items to purchase from their site. However, if you look at the reviews and know which one is best to buy you can get some really good ones at great prices! I definitely can say I've bought some gems because they have different styles and they are priced quite fairly in my opinion.

Watch the video to see me review the YesStyle jeans I got!

YesStyle not only sells clothes but they also sell skincare, makeup, and much more! I know some stores such as sephora etc sell Korean beauty products but they generally have the big brands or expensive products. That is why I went to YesStyle to find the other popular and more affordable products.

Check out my video if you want to see the products I got!

I've always known I had somewhat long lashes and I liked the false eyelash/eyelash extension look. However, I didn't want to spend the money to constantly get them done and I also am not very good at putting falsies on myself. So, I decided to try getting a lash lift and it cost me about 100USD. After that I wanted to get them done again but it just cost too much so I bought this set on amazon and i love it!

The lash lift set is easy to use and I've done it about 5 times now. I accidentally spilled one of them but even so I think I can still get at least 4 more uses out of this until that bottle is out (you can use it even more!) It varies between everyone of course, but my lashes stay up about 3-4 weeks.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone but I do want to put a little disclaimer that on my last lift, my left eye did get a little reaction to the lash glue (not sure why because I havent before) but it's possible you may. It's definitely okay though as long as you don't get it in your eye you're good.

I've attached a picture (covered up my pimple) to show what my lashes looked like before and after. Right side is with the lash lift and the left side is my lashes "lifted" but it's been a while since I've done them so it's slightly straight.

I've worn Princess Polly clothes before but they were my friends pieces so this time I decided to shop for some of my own! This was my first purchase with the brand and I was really excited! I am pretty satisfied with the purchase as shipping was quick and I was able to get my items with good discounts. Check out my video review for more details and a try-on haul!

So my friend has this lash glue that she let me use and it was my first time trying it out. It's Velour's White Latex-Free Lash Adhesive and she got it in a holiday set along with the tweezer which is quite nice as well. The lash glue itself is so good because it has a brush applicator rather than a squeeze tube. Generally when theres a tube, it's harder to get product on the lashes smoothly and get a thin layer. The lash glue is also clear so if you mess up it won't "ruin" you eye makeup. The last thing I wanted to mention was that my friend has been using this lash glue for a long time now (to be specific 2 years…) and there's still product (she wears lashes everyday so I don't know how that's possible) but it's great! I am definitely considering buying one for myself since it really is one of the best lash glues I've ever used.

Here's a lengthy review:
Many people have most likely heard of Shein before as it is a brand that sells cute clothing at a low price. However, the downside to this low price is that some of the items are not good quality. The other thing is, this brand is known for being bad at their shipping their products out and customer service which kinda leads to people believing they're a scam. Obviously this brand is not completely a scam because customers have shown their hauls on both youtube and tiktok and other places.

Speaking of tiktok, sometime last year there was a scandal going on about how shein was selling customer information (such as addresses) to others on tiktok but I believe it eventually turned out to be people hacking into the system.

From my personal experience, I bought 9 items (these black boots, tops, and some accessories). I got my boots in about a week after placing the order which is fair. However, the other 8 items that I ordered said it was still shipping after a whole month of placing my order and not just that, I waited until it hit about two months until I requested a refund which I did get later.

Not just from the scandal but also my own experience with purchasing, I will not be buying from Shein again and I have already deleted my account just for further precaution and also because I know I won't need or want anything from their website as well.

Final rating: will be giving two stars only because of my boots order (good quality for the price and shipped fairly quick)
