Welcome from Sephora Malaysia

Coconut scented. MMMmmm it smelled really yummmy in the shower



US – Birthday Gift from Sephora 2012

This years gift from Sephora. Last year I picked up the jack black gift for the boys, this year was perfect because I’ve been meaning to buy this for years (no kidding).

Fresh sugar lip treatment. So far so good! Really emollient, I will be stocking up when I finish.



Lemming: Dr. Hauschka Lavender Duo Set

Official name: Serenity & Relaxation gift set

I spotted this at Sephora KL this afternoon and was immediately drawn to

  1. it’s scent
  2. it’s price
  3. the fact that it was a value set 😀
  4. it felt like a nice product

It’s priced at RM131 which is slightly more expensive than US29.95 retail in the US but I think I can make this work if I use my Sephora card to get 10% off. I think you pay for the Moor Lavender Body Oil and get the 30ml Lavender bath for free.

What’s stopping me though is my inability to find a use for Lavender Bath. No bath tub, not into the compress method and ill equipped bathroom sink (no warm water or stopper) means I might not be able to utilize this.

What a chore

My skincare routine is starting to feel like a chore. I’ve always said I wanted to keep it simple which is what I liked about SK-II but it’s just too lengthy now and my sudden determination to introduce sunscreen into my life doesn’t help (unfortunately I never used to use sunscreen).

Morning Routine

  1. Cleanse
  2. Cellumination mask in lotion
  3. Facial treatment essence
  4. Facial treatment repair C
  5. Skin Signature
  6. Eye cream
  7. Sun screen
  8. Make up Base
  9. Concealer
  10. Foundation

I’ve decided to clear out my makeup. I haven’t bought any makeup for a whole year and suddenly I don’t seem to have a need for X amount of blushers and X amount of eyeshadows.

I’m also using less of MAC brushes and more of Sephora brushes. Who would’ve guessed? They are pretty pricey and not too far off from the cost of MAC brushes, not to mention they are synthetic too so I suppose they need to be of a certain quality. Not saying all their brushes are great because I have a set from them that I don’t even use but the air brush range is good stuff! The following brushes by Sephora are my daily staples:

Sephora Airbrush Concealer #57

Sephora Airbrush Foundation #56

Sephora classic mineral foundation brush

My sister is coming back to Malaysia next month and I’m going to get her to bring back as much stuff as possible 😀

Question is, what should I get? Hmmmmm
