Price: RM98 from Sasa, but they always have sales (Buy 1 Free 1 / second at 50%)
Before I stopped frequenting Sasa (Penang branch - I dislike their arrogant salespersons and their lack of product knowledge); I am glad I got this gem.
Because for sometime now, I haven't manage to find another BB Cream as good as this :S
This BB cream is not thick and makes application quite a breeze. I usually just blend with fingers. It gave me flawless dewy finish which lasted the whole day. No need for powder. It did however leave a slight grey cast upon application, but it adjusted to my skin tone perfectly minutes after that.
When I had this on, you can't tell my skin is prone to redness. Now I only wish it doesn't have to cost RM98 heh.
Kiehl's Says:An organic serum that repairs skin’s tone, texture, and elasticity
Foxy Frangipani Says:
Kiehl's gives the most generous samples ever! 5ml of this Acai Serum lasted me about 5-7 uses :)
Now next to the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, this is my favourite item from Kiehl's. I'll tell you why..
With most samples, I tend to save them for holidays use. So I packed this with me during two of my trips to KL recently. First was for a friend's wedding. It was quite a mad rush trip and earlier with some very very late nights; then there was meeting up with relatives and shopping mad before the wedding dinner. So my skin was kinda dull.. from the lack of sleep.
I used this without expecting anything in specific (also my skin dislike the air conditioning). The texture is quite runny, and brown in colour. I love the citrusy scent but had a hard time exacting the smell. It spreads and absorb easily and fits my requirement when it didn't leave me a tacky feel.
But boy.. the next morning I woke up to really good looking skin. Of course I couldn't believe my eyes so I asked The Husband to verify lol. Just one application and I see supple well rested skin. Whoa, but after the sachet I told myself to calm down.. maybe I was a little OTT.
Then the next trip - I fell sick with food poisoning. I spent the night throwing up with no sleep. But even when I was sick, I still care about my skincare. Again I was so pleased when the sun rose and I can see myself clearly.. I didn't have to look haggard going to the doctor lol. Skin looks healthy, just the stomach sick then.
The only thing that holds me back from rushing to the store and buying a full bottle? I have too many serums at the moment :( Also my MRC are coming to an end (after lasting so long!) I sure look forward to purchasing the serum soon. Airport - travel exclusive size please?
It has been a couple of months since I stopped buying monthly magazines. This used to be my favourite activity until... I find myself out of living space.
And worse I didn't like throwing them away so then clutter happened and I got stressed. Gee.. so I started to just browse and read online. If I do see too many interesting products the magazines come home with me heh.
This month's Female caught me with some freebies. A travel size Darlie toothpaste and Lactacyd samples. What a perfect timing. 2 holiday trips are coming up and yes I ran out of travel toothpaste.
I don't like bringing the full size- too heavy. But buying travel size are usually not worth the money pftt so this comes handy. Also the Lactacyd samples are convenient to use. I've used a couple duting my last Bangkok trip so 2 more samples are great. They keep me fresh hassle free.
There's also a redemption for Clarins Double Serum which I've redeemed. 7 sachets for 7 days use. Am still considering if to bring these along.. I do have older samples to use..
I don't really remember which set this shower gel came in. I probaby bought it for less than RM10 to meet the minimum spend etc.
Like other Body Shop shower gels, this one is easy to lather (but not alot of bubbles or foam). No issue in rinsing it off too.
What i love best about it was its scent. Reminds me of something very exotic. Like, on a vacation to a breezy place.

Real Techniques brushes has been in my wish list for a long long time. I stalked iHerb for sometime and when I was sent a 20% discount code, the wait has ended :P
In short, I love this brush. It is not heavy despite the size. Its bristles are really soft to touch and not scratchy. I use this with most powder products and applies wonderfully. Very even application.
The best part is that it is super easy to clean. It dries almost immediately. I usually will dab with an absorbent towel before leaving it to dry. And it doesn't shed.
I've read some rants that the self standing brush is a pain in storing. But it doesn't bother me much. Do just fine in a medium sized vase from Ikea.
