Accidental Shopping

Hello again!

So it seems like I’ve got more goodies to share with everyone again – all thanks to this!

Capture Priceline Promo

Priceline Promotion

Priceline was having a 40% promotion over 28 and 29 January 2015 and I had wanted to get a non-greasy moisturising lotion to replace the greasy one I had in the office, so I made a note to visit Priceline after my gym session.

Upon reaching Priceline, I saw that there was a neat little crowd within the Skincare section, predominantly Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese ladies, with their boyfriends/husbands hanging around behind awkwardly trying not to block the aisle. They were specifically huddled over the shelves of Trilogy, Sukin and A’Kin products which were on the opposite side of my Cetaphil shelf.  I’ve heard of these products before but have not used them before nor have any friends who are users of these products.

So the curious/nosy (read: kaypoh) Singaporean in me led me to squeeze through the little crowd and check out what the hype was about. I also noted that there was a poor sales assistant amongst the crowd who was having issues trying to stock up the shelves and I could tell she was getting exasperated! Poor thing. After half an hour of poring over product descriptions and sampling tester products, I eventually left with these:

My Priceline skincare haul!

I got a Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream, Trilogy Eye Contour Cream and a box of Nügg Face Masks just for fun. I almost got a bottle of Trilogy Rosehip Oil as well but I figured I should try out the two Trilogy products and see what it does for my skin before getting another item from the same brand. Upon checking out product reviews on the internet the next day, I was very pleased to find out that these have been highly rated by many users in Australia and overseas. I know my sequence of events is not in the right place but I didn’t have time to be checking out reviews while being stuck in the crowd haha.

My mom has been trying to get me into the habit of using night creams and eye creams to combat my aging skin but I haven’t been successful in keeping the routine going because 1) it is such a hassle, 2) I am lazy and 3) I hate the heavy, oily feeling that night creams do to my skin. But users of the two Trilogy creams I bought have commended them for being lightweight and refreshing, above all the other benefits they got from the products and I’m now really excited to try them out! I’ll do up a post once I’ve started using them to see if they are really like what the reviews say about them :)

I eventually left Carousel and came home with these:

So much white!

You know how some of us go through phases in which we seem to be more attracted to clothes of a particular colour? Like a colour of the moment? I think white is my colour of the moment now… I seem to be checking out too many white apparels!

Anyway, I got the two tops from Valleygirl which was next door to Priceline, cause they were having a 50% sale on ALL their apparel. How could I give that a miss? These two tops only set me back by a mere $6.45 so I was pretty proud of myself. As for the mules, I got them from Famous Footwear as I was walking to my car to leave Carousel. Got them for only $20 and they’re sooo comfortable! Mules are great because they don’t give the back of my ankles blisters and they’re easy to put on and take off. I’m already planning to bring them back with me when I return to Singapore for Chinese New Year in about 3 weeks time. Will put up an outfit post when I wear them in Singaz! I’m kinda excited about the trip cos I haven’t been back for CNY in about 3 years. Hello bak kwa and pineapple tarts! Stay tuned :)

Peace,

Soph

        No worries! I saw them in Priceline and they were on sale. But I wasn’t sure because I’ve never heard the brand before. Then when I saw you have these on your blog, I was like ‘OH :D’. Well, I’ll be the first to read when your post comes out :)
