Luxasia Sale 2009

Since I wasn't working I went down to the sale on Friday morning. Standard Chartered cardholders were allowed entry at 10am whilst I had to wait till 11am before I could get in. I think a lot of great deals were gone by then, but I managed to get the last 2 Jurlique Puriying Masks for $5 each. This round I got Jurlique, Stila, and Ipsa products though my original intention was to just top up on Decleor face oils.

Total Damage: $121.

I got a couple of products by Stila although I didn't think much of their products when I tested them at the recent Robinson's sale because it is rumoured they were either moving out of Singapore or closing down or both. In addition, I had seen the petal infusion skincare line on strawberrynet and had wanted to order it a couple of months back as the blue flowery bottles are just so cute. Unfortunately, it smells and feels just like Jurlique's Soothing Day Care Lotion. I had to stop myself from getting the eye makeup remover pads and cleansing cloths that came in the same blue packaging since I have tons of St Ives cleansing wipes and O2 eye makeup remover pads.

And I found an eyeshadow palette which was not at the Robinson's sale, and which I felt was so pretty. Very pearlised + glittery and in my fave color, purple! The only drawback is that there is no applicator and the glittery chunks could have just been ommitted. But @ just $8 each, why not? I even got them in both color combinations, Montmarte (left) and Marrakesh (right). You can see the swatch of Montmarte here.

Jurlique will be reviewed in a seperate post as I have a ton of Jurlique products to clear off. It seems that they are clearing the rebalance oiliness line. I got 4 bottles of Citrus Purifying Mist and 2 tubes of their Purifying Mask. A lot of essential oils were on sale too for $5-$15 each. I got the Ylang Ylang for $11. I think it retails for double that in Australia.

And Ipsa Metaboliser. I think this is similar to Laneige's Clear C Effector serum. A clear fluid that is neither water or gel. They have 18 different kinds of metabolizers for different skin types but about 5 kinds at the sale. I chose ME(tabolizer) White EX-1 because it supposedly whitens and controls sebum at the same time. This retails for Y7500 but I got it for just $24.
