My First International Shopping Haul | Review

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good..

I’m really happy and excited to share my first international shopping haul with you guys. Few days ago, I came across an emerging online shopping portal which has amazing deals and prices every time. I couldn’t resist myself from exploring the items and ultimately made my first purchase.

I was little hesitant and nervous as well because I was new to the site and feared whether I will receive my order or is it a fake website. If you are interested in knowing how my entire shopping experience went, what are the company claims, does it live upto its claims, what is the purchase procedure and my overall recommendation, then please keep on reading this post till the end.

How the package arrived:

The package got delivered to me in a good condition without any tearing, breaking etc but I was surprised to see that it did not come in any box or carton. The products were simply kept in a black polyethene bag which luckily did not tear during transit. Nothing was bubble wrapped or even doubly packed. However, everything reached me safely except one product. Also, fortunately I did not have to pay any customs because my total order value was less than Rs. 2000.

Products That I Bought:

12pcs Lot Colors Professional Waterproof Lipliner Lip Liner Pencil Makeup Set

These twelve lip liners are by the brand “Me-Now” which is not new to most of Indian girls. They come in a cardboard box with all necessary product details mentioned on it. These pencils are all color coded which is really convenient and they’re also light weight as they have a glossy, plastic body.

Electric Automatic Tweezer Epilator Women Body Bikini Leg Hair Remover

I am a huge fan of epilators and electric razors as they are quick, painless and easy to use. I love the color and shape of this automatic hair remover as it is convenient to hold and is handy. It has a plastic body and runs on 2 AAA batteries which are not included in the package. Honestly, I cannot expect enough in this price range and I’m very happy with this product as well.

They allow easy and good application of makeup and also have no fallouts.

What I disliked:


Women’s Black Waist Trainer Body Shaper Cincher Corset Slimming Belt M-XL

My sister got a similar waist shaper from Club Factory and I loved how it made her tummy look very shaped and flat. I wanted to buy the same one from tosave, so I decided to give it a try. Honestly, I was so impressed with this product that I can’t rave enough. It had a better quality than the one we got from Club Factory. I got mine in the size L which has a length of 52 cm and width of 21 cm. It is fit for waist size 70-80/27-31 (cm/inch). The quality of material is amazing and it fits perfectly as well to give an illusion of a flat tummy in addition to encouraging correct posture.

Cost: $2.10 (or Rs. 142.94 currently)

Availability: Here

Sizes Available: M, L, XL

Material: Spandex+Polyester

What I liked:

*Amazing quality
*Comfortable to wear
*Fits perfectly
*Gives a great posture
*Instant;y slims down midriff

What I disliked:


100/500pcs Half Cover Artificial False Fake Nails Ballerina Coffin DIY Nail Art

Now who doesn’t love artificial nails, right? These nails are available in three colors viz. natural, white and transparent. I got mine in transparent so that I can experiment with them as much as I want. These come in two quantity options as well, i.e. 500 pcs (without box) and 100 pcs (with box). I found the pricing really good so got 500 pcs for myself. They come in ten packets numbering 0 to 9 which is really convenient to find out which artificial nail will be fit for which finger nail. They do not come with nail glue which is again completely okay to me as I can easily get it here in India.

Cost: $3.43 (or Rs. 233.50 currently)

Material: Plastic

What I liked:

*Great quality
*Low price

What I disliked:


6 Colors Contour Pressed Powder Bronzer Highlighter Cosmetic Makeup Palette

Since I have a very round face, I cannot skip contouring my face at all. Bronzers are never enough for me, so I couldn’t skip buying it from this site as well. It comes in three shades viz 1, 2 and 3 and I got shade 3 for myself as I wanted to go for something dark, really dark. I can’t tell how eager I was to get this baby in hands but my heart broke as soon as I opened the palette. Due to transporting, this product broke as well as the mirror. It comes in a matte finish and I can still use it as I have a trick that I will mention at the end of this post. If the palette was bubble wrapped, I am sure this wouldn’t have happened but I don’t mind it.

Cost: $4.13 (or Rs. 281.15 currently)

Availability: Here

What I liked:

*Color and finish of the palette

What I disliked:

*Nothing except the packaging

Pros of

*If you are not satisfied with the product purchased from Tosave, you may return it for refund or exchange within 7 days after you receive the good
*All products separately packed in zip lock bags
*Low price

Cons of

*The package comes in a single black polyethene
*No bubble wrapping
*Package prone to breakage due to poor packing

Final Verdict:

Overall, I am really happy with all the products, the quick delivery, quality of items and customer service. I was updated regarding my order every now and then and the shipment just took 15 days to arrive at my home which I think is great and real quick. I regret that the contour palette broke but I know how to fix broken makeup and will fix this palette on my own.

I wish the packaging of the items is improved and each item is individually bubble wrapped so that it can reach the customer safely. I hope the brand takes my suggestion on a positive note if they are reading this.

Will I recommend buying from

Yes. Overall, I had a good experience buying stuff from this website and will be exploring more categories from them soon. All the items were exactly how they were shown and had a good quality. If you are also looking forward to buy stuff from a China based online shopping portal, you must definitely check it out.
