The BodyShop Haul

img1485589958979.jpg

I went to Bodyshop (Mahkota Parade branch) with one intention in mind. To take a sniff of Bodyshop’s Red Musk  and purchase it if I like it that much. What drew me to try the fragrance was because some blogger mentioned its quite masculine for a woman’s perfume. I Love Men. I yearn that feeling of this little toyol green hulk lurking underneath this persona of a calm, collected lady. Ready to spring out anytime a rage sets in. ROAR!

After 15 mins in the store, I ended up getting more than one item. Just because the lady salesgirl had excellent customer service. It must be my red lipstick. Vavavoom.. She was ever so enthusiastic to go through the products one by one.

I was immediately eligible to become a LoveYourBody (LYB) fan with my minimum purchase of RM100. I spent a total of RM116.50. My hauls include;

RM 89.00. EDT Red Musk 30ML.

I bought a small one because I have the tendency to change perfumes depending on my mood. Perhaps I’ll do a review on it later once I go around using it.

RM 13.50/bottle of 60ML shower gel [travel size]

I personally chose Satsuma and Olive. The smell was wonderful. Memang rajinlah nak mandi postcall lepas ni. HA ha. The Grapefruit shower gel was one of the items in the LYB Fan Goodie Bag. It came with the Moringa Body Butter below. Girls love FREE GIFTS.

I also redeemed the free samples. Because the chances of me returning to the store for another trip is very slim. I was overjoyed when the Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask came as a sample  – was always intrigued as to how its like.

The salesgirl, Sha was very cheeky to ask if I wanted their 50cent paperbag to pack the items. Of course I DO! Never mind their commitment to build a Bio-Bridge, I love the design already. It’s so sturdy and colourful.

Being an LYB fan entitles you to a few perks such as up to date information regarding sales or new releases, birthday discounts, member sales etc. I might consider their fragrances and body bath stuff for future purchases. I have yet to fall head over heels onto their skincare products and makeup line as I have an existing brand which I love and is working for me. But who knows, maybe a lipstick or two could do the trick?

SimplySiti : ‘Glocal’ and affordable

I find that I am slowly having this inclination towards local products in the beauty section – the  SimplySiti brand to be exact. Perhaps it is because the range still has a Korean essence to it, only perfected with a Malaysian touch. By our famous songstress of course, Dato Siti Nurhaliza. On top of that, with the current exchange rate – I have to think twice when ordering an item online especially when it’s from overseas. So if anybody have any recommendations to replace my Missha BB Foundation Cream and Missha Time Treatment Essence, I would be so thankful.

I did a SimplySiti haul at Watson’s recently. Say hello to the new folks;

20150912_132820

SimplySiti EDP Precious RM 69.90
SimplySiti HidraVita Treatment Cream (Vitamin E) RM 33.90
SimplySiti Argan Mascara RM 39.90
SimplySiti Elegant Lipstick (Wanita) RM 29.90

The HidraVita Treatment Cream is another repeat purchase – just like the Dermagic Moisturiser. It could be a placebo effect but I do feel that my blemishes are kept at bay. I decided on the Precious EDP because it smelled better than the rest. It has yet to match Ralph Lauren’s Style (somebody.. please recommend me a perfume with somewhat similar accent) which is now not in production anymore. But I’ll just try it and see how it goes. Plus, the packaging is cute with the ribbons and such. It can be a budget gift for any girl on any occasion too.

It took me ages to choose a lipstick that could bring out the perfect nudé before I finally settled on a particular colour named as Wanita. I don’t want to appear too dressed up for work yet not lesu and lemah at the same time. Hope to put it to the test next MOnday.

So here is my little SimplySiti family. Say yes to Malaysian products!
