Rimmel - Lasting Finish Lip Tint + Balm

Brand: Rimmel
Date :May 2012
Place: KLCC, Watson, Rimmel Promotion Counter
Method: Got to know this exchange programme from the website. Bring along any brand lipstick to exchange 1 1000 KISSES Lip Tint


Additional Information : Be at Watson early, before 10.00am. Luckily not many queueing though, quite fast I got my exchange, the beauty consultants are there to explain the usage, and even some start to apply it immediately. I was rushing for time, if not I will definitely try it on the spot.

Additional Information :
There's some defect in the little bottle dispenser portion hence almost ½ bottle been wasted for the Vit-C Complex Serum.

The advised application process was :
After cleaning and toning, apply the Eau Restaurer Serum, then with with C Complex Serum, follow by any moisturiser, and the sunscreen or the night cream if it is night time.

Mainly the product is meant for whitening purpose, and 1 beautician told me, most of the whitening product will be a bit more oily, because most of the time, freckles tends to follow dry skin, and fair looking skin most of the time is dry skin …

Even though the beautician told me I will feel a bit of sticky after applying the 2 serum, especially the Vit C, but I should feel it been absorbed after applying for about 20 minutes plus. But, for my case, still I feel the oiliness after hours …. very sticky. But, as promised, it is really a very good product, no breakout, no matter how oily I feel.

I have religiously stopped all my other products, but only use these. And, the sunscreen also won't clog anything … amazing. Only thing, I don't see anything else as the product promised …. fairer or more shinny skin … nah, I don't feel any changes, so I am still in combat, should I go for the full size or not ?

BudsBaby - Spread Your Love For The Environment

Brand: Buds
Date : July 2012
Place: Facebook Fanpage
Method: Buds organized a facebook fanpage Spread Your Love for the Environment contest, write in with the most creative way of saving our environment.



The delivery was extremely fast … the moment I got to know I was one of the winner, the next day the mailman is already at my door step …. and my kids are so excited opening up the box, untie the beautifully wrapped gift set, and immediately asking for a bath, and a 'after bath' story time :-)

I am not a very creative person, but I always wanted to do something for our environment, and with some way of saving my household expenses too. Since I was very young, I practice some small way of saving which a lot of my friends think that is 'stingy'.

After years of awareness, now my stingy method become a small effort of saving the environment and further more, Buds award me as one of the creative winners, which is a way of 'confirming' me that I was doing it right. Thanks Buds Baby.

Nano White - Infinity Super Whitening Serumoist


Brand: NanoWhite
Date : May 2012
Place: Metro Prima Kepong, Nano White Promotion Area
Method: Cut out the newspaper sample redemption slip and redeem at the designated promotion places.


Additional Information : There was some mis-understanding on the newspaper redemption slip. Quite a number thought it was exchanging for the deep moisturizer (200ml) as advertised. I was one of them though, sadly disappointed but mainly would be 'reader errors', can't really blame anyone. By the way, looking at the size, doubtingly feel it couldn't able to hold 5ml in it … wait till I open it and we will know ….
