Clinique finds…

Until now, I still cannot believe how cheap Clinique is in London. I’d been boycotting Clinique for quite some time, owing to the fact that they gave me some shitty service previously, and it’s seriously EXPENSIVE in Malaysia.


My TWO purchases…
However, when I was in Selfridges with Jackie, I couldn’t get over how cheap Clinique was, not to mention the kind of promotions they had there. With every purchase of TWO items, you get a free gift set. I just picked up an eye cream and concealer, and just ended up with an entire pack of freebies.

Can you imagine, I bought the All About Eyes (£20) and Airbrush Concealer (£15) for a total £35 purchase (about RM220), and I got this set. In Malaysia, (okay, to be fair here, it’s with all the higher end brands including Lancome and Estee Lauder) you’d have to spend at LEAST RM300-350 to get a 3 or 5-pc set of just 15-20ml sample sizes.

Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips (50ml), Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser (75ml), Moisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief (30ml), Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating Cream (75ml) and Deep Comfort Body Butter (40ml) in a white makeup box.

Can you imagine? This is just so different from the kind of stuff they give away here. After this, I don’t think I’ll be going back to the Clinique counters in Malaysia anytime soon. Since I was running out of my moisturizer, I decided to give their Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel as well (another fab deal at £27 for 125ml) so we’ll see how these few products go. Full reviews will be coming up soon!

I love freebies!!!!! I hate it that they dont' give enough freebies here in our country!!! Sometimes you have to ask, and asking doesn't mean you'll definitely going back with freebies! I was just telling them how important samples are! I bought a whole tube of Moisturizing Lotion (yellow one) and the Moisture Surge because of samples!

Oh oh oh! Why can't Clinique Malaysia be so smart and give out freebies like this? I was just at the counter on Friday and the SC was like so stingy to give me just one product to try. Haiiii...

prettybeautiful: clinique is apparently a lot cheaper in the States...and I'm fast becoming a fan of the Moisture Surge! :)

askmewhats: it's nice when they give you decent-sized samples - no point in something that only lasts ONE application (?!?)...but knowing us, ALWAYS won't be enough samples..LOL!

fashionasia: hey..I don't - do you? would like to go, but it's another excuse to spend $$...sigh...

rinnah: exactly!they only give out those teeny samples, and only if you spend a heckuva lot! nevermind, will share the luv this Sunday... ;)
