I swear Etude House should ban me from entering their store because once I stepped in, I could not help but to burn money. Their promotion is still ongoing until 19th July, if I am not mistaken. Below are the purchases from my 3rd trip since the promotion. Purchases are from Etude House Brunei Time Square branch.
3 items for $9.90 only!!!!!! (Selected item only). This consists of:-
1. A pack containing small packets of sleeping masks with different functionalities. With an additional firming eye cream from the Collagen Line as a free gift. I will add the eye cream to my usual skincare routine. Yeay!
2. Exfoliating foot mask
3. Moisturizing foot mask. Really need these feet pampers because I have a small dry patch on my right feet. No matter how many times I moisturize, the dryness won't go away. :(
There is a total of 7 sleeping masks. I will list out each of their unique properties below from left to right.
#1 Green Tea Extract - Skin Clarifying. Not only that, green tea has astringent properties to brighten the skin, controlling acnes and anti-aging.
#2 Pomegranate Extract - Moist Skin Enhancing. From what I have known, pomegranate can control the hormones that causes pimples on the face and has anti-aging properties too.
#3 Nutrition Sufficient Royal Jelly - providing nutrients to moisturize the skin.
#4 Skin Brightening Pearl Effect - obviously to whiten the skin.
#5 Lemon Vitamin C - vitamin Cs are good to brighten dull skin. I believe it is true!
#6 Aloe Skin Soothing - soothes sun burned or irritated skin. Aloe works like magic everytime, no doubt.
#7 Korean Ginseng Healthy Skin Maintaining - heard that Korean Ginsengs are good to prevent wrinkles or fine lines.
THE ORIGINAL PRICING IN BRUNEI FOR THE PACK OF SLEEPING MASKS IS $29.90 AND I ONLY GOT IT FOR $3.30. IT IS INSANE.
Finally, I am able to get my hands on the product that I have been dying to have!!!! The Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion Magic Mint with SPF34!!!! Original price in Brunei stores is $33.90 and I only got it for $13.90 after a 65% off. Again, it is insane. The packaging is in mint color. Pictures does not do justice. The product promises to lighten blemished skin during application. When I am lazy to apply heaps of bb creams, bases and concealers, I can just pat the liquid from the cushion by using the provided puff onto my face. Plus, it is like an on the go product, works for rush hour or for touching up.
Here is one of the contexts from the packaging:-
"The Magic Cushion Pad makes skin transparent and bright with a lovely magic base color that covers imperfections of any skin type"
So it can be used as a makeup base too, great! This is specially specified for a blemished face. They have 2 other types of magic cushion, which are for pale skin (pink color) and dull skin (peach color).
The packaging. The puff is so cute, I am dying.
The inside. It reveals a 'sponge' after unsealing the sticker. That is where the liquid comes from. The sponge somehow disgusts me, hahahhaa. I took a close up look of it, it looks like some kind of bacteria that can be seen by using a microscope.
Just look at that!!!!
I will try to do a review on each and every products that I've got. The sales assistant packed my purchases in the most prettiest Etude paper bag I have seen. She even taught us (brought my bestf along, she bought the same cushion too for herself) how to apply a cushion type of 'routine' properly. As a cushion first timer, it was so helpful. Major major points.
The paper bag. It gives me some sort of Princessy feeling
which is what I am
