Where I work, the week before (and a few days after) Christmas is always the most hectic time of the year, but I'm still thankful that I have work, and most grateful for unexpected surprises like these!
A few days before Christmas, I received the most wonderful presents from my AGC family, which carries just some of my favorite cutesy Korean brands such as Etude House, Tony Moly, and Tous les Jours here in the Philippines.
Let's unwrap the presents, shall we? :)
From Tous les Jours Philippines
Tous les Jours sent me a basket filled with sweet treats, much to the delight of my entire family. This Christmas basket is definitely made for sharing!
Tous les Jours Mini Chiffon
Tous les Jours Mini Castella
Tous les Jours sponge cakes are so soft, light, and fluffy! The Mini Chiffon has a slight tinge of lemon, while the Mini Castella is more on the buttery side.
Tous les Jours Cream Cheese Muffin
I loved these Cream Cheese Muffins so much that this was the only thing from the basket I didn't share! >:) It's so moist, soft, and fresh! Definitely a treat for cheese lovers.
Tous les Jours Blueberry Muffin
I have actually featured the Blueberry Muffin before, so I gave this to my Dad so he could enjoy it at work. This one's soft and moist (wait, almost all Tous les Jours cakes are!) with real blueberry bits inside.
Tous les Jours Chocolate Chip Cookies
I don't know how the bakers from Tous les Jours do it, but this pack of Chocolate Chip Cookies is crunchy and moist at the same time! Open a pack and be greeted by that "freshly baked" scent. The outer part of the cookies is crunchy, but the insides are moist and juicy. Aside from chocolate chips, it has crushed walnuts, too!
Tous les Jours Strawberry Jam
Tous les Jours Brownie Mix
I'm so intrigued by this box of Brownie Mix. It says I can make a moist batch of brownies but just adding water and baking it in a microwave oven! I don't have a baking oven at home, so this one's heaven sent. MUST TRY! :D

Etude House Philippines sent me some of their newest products. Gotta love how girly everything is!

Etude House will make your Shining Dreams come true this Holiday season! Shining Dream is Etude House's Winter Holiday Limited Collection for 2013. The trend for the holidays are twinkling nails and shiny lips!
Etude House &Rose Rosy Tint Lips in 01
The &Rose Collection is inspired by Sleeping Beauty, and it Etude House's Fall 2013 Collection. Rosy Tint Lips a cream tint (oh I love how innovative Korean makeup gets!) that you can use both on the lips and cheeks. I love that it has a matte finish and with a unique petal-soft velvety texture when applied on the lips.
Etude House Slim & Long Sharp Liner
I'd like you to meet the cutest eyeliner I've ever seen! It looks like a real pen! It's unique and super slim at just 1.5mm.

From Tony Moly Philippines
Tony Moly Philippines sent me a complete face makeup set. Looks like I won't be buying makeup anytime soon!
Tony Moly Pure Aura CC Cream Flyer
I already have Tony Moly Pure Aura CC Cream, which I reviewed here. This one's a helpful guide for makeup newbies!
Tony Moly Egg Pore Nose Pack
My first ever nose strip. I already tried this out, watch out for my review!
Tony Moly Cristal Blusher in 03
Yes, Cristal is really spelled that way. I'm loving this peachy pink shade to bits!
Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint in 01 Clear
I already got one in 03 Purple a few weeks ago during Tony Moly's sale, and now I have the clear version! Now, which one to use first?
Tony Moly Lovely Eye Liner Pencil
Tony Moly Simple Style Slim Mascara Curling
Now I also have backups of basic eye makeup, too! Among Korean makeup brands, Tony Moly's packaging is more on the minimalist side, but it looks really classy, don't you agree?
