Is Vichy Bidding Us Farewell?  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

After being "absent" from the Internet scene for almost two months (there was the wedding, then the honeymoon, and then the failed internet connection which resulted in me cancelling the service); this piece of news is a shocker (like a welcome back boo-yah Vichy is leaving!)

I mean like, realllly? Why? 
Vichy is a brand that I don't dislike (except the price maybe, I have to admit, they are not too expensive though). I've tried a couple of their products so far, and I quite like them. There was always a wish list - I'll get them once I finish something (fat chance hah!) / when there is a sale going on (10-20% is no fun) etc.

Never really get to do a big haul. Now they are leaving?
Best part is, things are going at Buy 1 Free 1 now! It is true! News was that by March next year, they'll be kapoofed for good. But check their shelves now - I think they'd be gone by Christmas!

Most of the shelves are almost empty, and some left are single unit only. You don't get to buy at 50% off.
No luck at Queensbay. But the pharmacist was really nice, she called Gurney to see if they have what I want, and reserved a set for me :)

I really only wanted Bi-White Reveal Double Corrective Whitening Emulsion. When I entered Watsons and Guardian, look at what I came out with >_<

I am trying to console myself - it is Xmas, it is ok to pamper myself, bonus is near, Heck, just buy and make myself happy. The Husband wasn't helping either.. he actually got me into buying the sunscreen and the Liftactiv (for him!!) :P

~ Purete Thermale 3 in 1 One Step Cleanser RM64.90
~ Bi-White Reveal Double Corrective Whitening Emulsion RM109
~ Normaderm Night Anti Imperfection + Rejuvenating Care RM49
~ UV Pro Secure SPF 50 PA+++ (Anti Dullness and Evening Effect)
~ Liftactiv CxP RM149
~ Aqualia Thermal  Fortifying and Soothing 24Hr Hydrating Care

All 12 for about RM500++. I guess it isn't too bad eh? :D

** Out of curiousity I did asked if she knows why are they pulling out from Malaysia. Seems that there was some conflict with the importer. That could possibly mean, some months later, some other importer might just bring Vichy back to Malaysia. So bye Vichy; for now. Come back soon!
