Skincare Buys #15

As mentioned in my previous blog entry, I redeemed a B$50 worth of Hua Ho voucher yesterday. I intended to use the voucher for my hairdryer but it turned out that the hairdryer which I wanted is only selling for B$29.90. So, I didn’t get to use the voucher yesterday but I managed to use it on my skincare products’ purchases today!

I received a text message from Shet Fui yesterday afternoon that Elizabeth Arden is currently on 20% + 10% discount promotion for their regular priced items. However, the said promotion is not applicable for special offer items. So, I decided to seize the opportunity to check out if there is any item worth stocking up on.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer | B$60

This is the improved version of Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Good Morning Retexturing Primer. The said product has been discontinued and replaced with this. The difference between this and the discontinued version is that the former comes with foundation shade and it has an extremely powdery finishing.

Laneige Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil | B$49.90

I had been wanting to buy this since it was launched couple of years ago but never gotten round to as I always stock up on cheaper cleansing oils nowadays. Having tried Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil, I was impressed with the performance so I am hoping the same thing from this.

I scored quite a bit of samples this time round. What I love about Laneige is that they are always generous with giving away samples. Susan from Laneige gave me samples for Laneige Clear C Serum but I told her that I’m using the product at the moment. So, she gave me Laneige Mini Pore Double Clearing Cleansing Foam instead.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Youth Restoring Essence

According to Shet Fui, this is Elizabeth Arden’s version of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. She gave me a small sample bottle to try as I didn’t quite like it when I tested it over the counter. My first impression of the product is that the liquid smelled strong of alcohol.
