Thank You Jamilla & Using Up Beauty Supplies
I received Jamilla's 100th Follower Giveaway contest gift, a couple of days ago! She was too generous! I'm so happy with everything, look at the cute softie, the pretty pouch and pretty notepaper! Jamilla knows me well. :D Inside the pouch is a delish Molton Brown body cream, and Dior and Lancome glosses that are exactly the colours that I like. And she included a disc of very useful beauty information! Thank you so much, Jamilla! Meanwhile, I'm on a mission to use up my supplies! This is a variation of what's going around in many beauty blogs. I'm just intent on using up stuff before opening up new ones, but I didn't really succeed (I'll tell you about it in the next post). So far, I've finished 1 bottle of Fancl White Body Milk, a bottle of Body Shop shower gel (yea, I think I overuse the shower gel, I like alot of bubbly foam when I'm showering), 1 bottle of Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil and I've almost used up my White Rose body lotion, even though it does nothing for my body whitening efforts. I think I'm almost used up quite a couple of other products, I just need to keep using them until they're finished instead of opening up new stuff to use. I love finishing products, it makes me feel justified in buying new ones. :p And let me tell you something that blows my mind. I've finished using my Shiseido Bio Performance Super Eye Contour Cream. I rather liked it though I couldn't tell if it really made alot of difference for my eyes. But there's so little product in this and I suspect something is wrong!! Why? Because I was already using Biotherm Hydra Detox for some time before I started using Shiseido's Bio Performance, yet Bio Performance is now empty and Biotherm is still going strong! Shiseido might be cheating me! Both claim to contain 15ml of product but Shiseido is finished so much faster! Still, the husband is going on a business trip and I was going to ask him to get me another Bio Performance and the White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment that had worked wonders for Jamilla from the duty free shops. I hope he got my sms, because he left the house without taking my to-buy list! (Which means no Chanel glosses that are only available from Departure Hall Duty Free T_T ) By the way, do you use up stuff even if they are not working well for you? If not, what do you do with them, besides trying to sell them? I don't mean things that cause allergy or breakouts. Just things that don't work as well as you expect or you'd like them to. Do you feel "guilty" if you just throw them away? I usually give stuff that I don't like or don't work to my mom for her to try but my dad is lately getting abit irritated with me for sending "junk" to their home. LOL! I just sent them a bag of ... handbags hahaha. My mom is happy and she always says her friends compliment her on her new bags and stuff, but my dad really hates the clutter (I got that from him, so I send clutter out of my house to theirs!) :p I'm off to catch a movie (I've been doing that alot lately) and reading (it keeps me really busy)! © Copyright.
