Kiehl’s Mega Sale Carnival

When I visited the Kiehl’s store at Gurney Plaza some time back, I did ask the SA if they had any sales or promotions, and she told me, “Hardly.”

But lo and behold, I’m here to tell y’all that Kiehl’s in Malaysia is gonna have a Mega Sale Carnival from May 27 – June 26 2011.  They’ll take RM10 off every RM100 purchase. That is roughly 10% discount, depending on how much you actually purchase.  Any savings is better than no savings, yes?


I’m on a skincare ban now too, but if I wasn’t, I’d stock up on the Midnight Recovery Concentrate…a miracle concentrate which I’d rave about some other day. :)

My (Belated) Birthday Pressie from Sephora Beauty Insider

When I was staying Stateside for a few months, like many others out there, I too succumbed to the temptation that is called Sephora.  I shopped online because they offered FREE shipping for orders $50 and more (which isn’t hard to attain).  Plus, they gave out free samples with each order.  AND I got to register as a Beauty Insider member.

I didn’t really know what being a Beauty Insider meant, other than receiving points for my purchase, as well as newsletters emailed to me regularly. 

Then last October, as it neared my birthday, I received an email from Sephora Beauty Insider informing me that I could go collect a birthday gift from the Sephora store!  A birthday gift just by being a registered Beauty Insider?!  Cool!

One minor problem though: I was back in Malaysia and I had to ask someone in US to collect the gift on my behalf.

Long story short…my friend only managed to pass my gift (belated birthday gift, that is) to my hubby last week, when he was in the States.  And ta-daaa…here it is!! (psst…they change the gift every now and then)


  • Sephora Eyeshadow (mine is Aspen Summit No. 23)
  • Sephora Nano eyeliner (eye pencil in a very cool shade of Silver Green)
  • Sephora Lash Plumper (lash plumping mascara)


I’ve personally not used any of Sephora’s stuff, so this would be a first.  Hmm…I wonder if I’ll get another gift this coming October… :)

Are any of you guys Beauty Insider members, and what have you gotten for your birthday gifts from Sephora?


Discover your Sensual Self at Sensuala

I arrived at the site, out of curiosity
Not knowing what to expect in sheer ambiguity
Simply called the Sensuala Interactive Beauty Zone
I must say it’s definitely a site to call your own!

I clicked on START and was asked to choose
My body shape based on a particular fruit
I chose between a pineapple, a lemon, a cherry
An apple, a lemon and even a strawberry!

I was then asked to measure the size of my bust
With given instructions, that’s certainly a must!
Together with the cup size, I was asked to enter
With bated breath, I awaited the answer!

Next, to select my style, I was told
Was I the sporty kind or was I sexy and bold?
Did I think I had a casual style
Or am I simply a feminine kinda gal?

Lastly, I was asked for what I look for most in a bra?
What’s the most important factor by far?
Is it comfort or enhancement that I seek?
Is it support or style that makes it chic?

I wished I could choose a combination
For I find that I’m sometimes between selections
But the results were out and I’m a Proper Lady
Which, I’d say, is rather close to accuracy


I was recommended some gorgeous bras that would suit my style
The experience was certainly worth the while
For a mere five minutes on the PC or workstation
I definitely cherished it with utter satisfaction!

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion – was it really Perfect x Simple?


With a name as long as that, I was beginning to wonder if this lotion would live up to its name.  I’ve heard a lot of good things about this lotion and I was incredibly happy when I got the chance to sample this lotion for myself.  The people at Hada Labo sent me a tiny 9ml bottle of the Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion to sample and they were also kind enough to include a 3g sachet of the Moisturizing Cream.

The Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion is to be treated like a toner.  So I applied it after cleansing my face.  I currently use the Dermalogica toner which does not require a cotton pad, so similarly with the Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion, no cotton pads were required.  I simply poured a small amount into the palms of my hands and patted it onto my face, starting with my cheeks, then forehead, then nose, chin and neck.  Because the lotion is rather watery at first, I had to perform this patting motion for about 30 seconds at least, before it actually got absorbed into my skin and surprisingly, after that, my skin felt really soft and supple to the touch!

Here’s a list of benefits listed for this amazing lotion:

* Instantly hydrates skin and helps preserve its optimum moisture balance.
* Replenishes and locks-in moisture for complete hydration. Skin feels significantly soft and supple.
* Helps improve dry and dehydrated skin, leaving it silky smooth.
* Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
* Free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant.

The sample bottle of 9ml lasted me about 10 days, and I used it twice a day, morning and night.  I find this incredibly economical, because the 170ml bottle of Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion retails for RM40.90, which means one bottle could last me about 19 weeks or so, which is close to 5 months.  That’s what I call stretching your ringgit!  It’s easily available too, at all Guardian pharmacies nationwide.

Another thing which I absolutely love about this Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion is that it’s completely FRAGRANCE-FREE.  It actually feels like applying water to your skin and after that I use my moisturizer as per normal.  By the way, the Moisturizing Cream sample that I was given was also to be applied using the patting motion, but I only had enough for about 2 uses, since it’s only a small sachet.  It’s also fragrance-free though.

Bottomline, if you want a toner/moisturizing lotion that truly works and you don’t want to burn a hole in your pocket, the MY Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion is your solution.  With 1 bottle sold every 4 seconds in Japan, you’ll never go wrong, I’ll bet!

Have you tried the Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion yourself, and what was your experience with it?

By the way, Hada Labo has also released an Arbutin Whitening Range, which I bet would appeal to all you people out there who would give an arm and a leg for porcelain WHITE and FAIR skin.  Go check out their Facebook page now. :)
