Superdrug Beauty Card

Superdrug is launching a loyalty card, called the 'beautycard'; where customers can earn points that can be redeemed in store - much like the good old Boots Advantage Card, the points can be earnt online and in store and spent in store.

The card will launch on 11th May and to celebrate customers can earn 50 bonus points for every £5 spent on Superdrug branded products in store (until 7th June), while online during the same period customers will receive 10 points per pound on all shopping1, plus there will be 1,000 chances to win 1,000 points every week. 

As standard though Superdrug’s 'beautycard' will offer one point for every pound spent, and every 100 points will translate to a pound to spend in store, plus there will be additional chances to receive extra points via promos in store.

Personally think that this is not a great scheme as only you can only redeem £1 worth of point after £100 spent. But the plus is that you can use the points as a part payment as at the moment Boots does not offer this.

In scheme will not make any strong persuasion for me to shop in Superdrugs, as I already shop regularly as there's a local store near my flat and that stuff in Superdrug is tend to be few penny cheaper than Boots. As long as their 10% /25% off voucher after survey is still here, I am more than welcome to see a few quid back as I definitely spent more than £100 in Superdrugs every year.

So what do you think?

Sleek Blush Swatches

I have just saw review on A little obsessed blog, which Sabrina has made swatches for all the Sleek blushes that she own, and if you are a fan of Sleek blushes, then don't miss it!


[N.B. the photo is copied from Sabrina's blog]

Quick! Debenhams is giving out free Benefit new skincare samples

If you are a beauty addict, then I think you have already received Debenhams Beauty Clubs email. With the email, you can pop to your local store to collect samples of the new Benefit skincare line, which is called b. right radiance skincare.
[apparently they are gone very quickly, according to the BA in my local store, so pop to your local store asap!]

As always, with my sensitive skin, I only used new skincare product as soon as I finished the previous one, so I don't think I will able to review any of them currently as I still mid way though my old stuff. However, I have seen reviews on a few blogs already, so do google it. [e.g. Meling's 蘋果的化妝箱]

Although I haven't tried it, I have already felt in love with the packaging. When I 1st saw the photos for this new line, I wasn't too keen as I personally not a great fan of this blue. But when I received the package, I was amazed that I already felt good and looked forward to try it.
I quite like this box as I like the size and that there's a string for you to tie the box, definitely will put it on my dressing table, it is a good size to store my pots of skincare.

Also, I seriously in love with the eye cream pot and the day cream bottle. When I 1st saw the day cream bottle, I thought that will be very heavy and it is not ideal to have a glass bottle for day cream when I tend to rush in the mornings. But when I hold the miniatures, it is kind of like perfume bottle and I love to collect cute perfume bottles. [ I can already tell you secretly that I definitely will reuse this bottle...shuhhh....]

So what's the wait? Pop down to your local store to see whether they still have it in store!

Royal Nailing

Just saw on beautyandthedirt.com, Nails inc. has come out a collection for the royal wedding. Yes I know, for some of you will be sick of this 'royal wedding' adverting gimmick, but soon they will be over. As my friend said to me when I called her about the biscuit tin in M&S, 'wait until the wedding is over', she said, ' the price will drop straight away as there's an expiry date for these merchandise'. So for now, I haven't bought my biscuit tin, though I am still very tempted to bring them home, as who know, will they sold out before I arrive in store on the day after the wedding?!

Anyway, as you can see, they of coz name after them,  Will, a royal red and Kate, a dreamy cream polish, both have crystal embossed caps inspired by the Union Jack and Kate’s engagement ring. [which personally think the blue does not goes well with the cream, while the red combination is excellent match, though I don't use red polish]. Also, they are £15 each, which is even more 
expensive than the normal nails inc polishes.

Furthermore, they have come up with another set, the Royal Collection which includes shades, Westminster Abbey, Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral. [ as you can tell, all name after places which closely link with the royal family...] Also, unlike the normal silver cap, these have gold! caps. If you  are fan of collecting those limited edition merchandise, then I recommend you to get this as it is only £25! for 4 bottles [ which is the normal price for a collection from nails inc]

Anyway, personally I won't purchase any of these, as I have enough nail polishes, but will you?

You can find them on www.debenhams.com

p.s. have changed the style, format of my blog, what do you think of it? nice? or worst?


Alternative to BB Cream

I think lots of you heard about bb cream, or already order them from ebay or ask friends and relatives to bring you over some when they travel to Asia. I just come back from Singapore, and I have heard (and seen some of) the high-end cosmetics companies have set foot into the market which is dominated by Korean and Japanese firms. So this is really 'hot' at the moment!

N.B. FYI, I have seen bb cream from the following companies: Estee Lauder, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Clinque, Dior as well as MAC

So what's bb cream?

"In a nutshell...
BB Cream is an all-in-one cosmetic beauty and skincare product. Depending on the brand you choose, this cream can act as foundation, concealer, sunblock, and moisturizer all in one go."
quoted from squidoo.com

Therefore, anything that claims to improve our skin, which means tinted moisturiser is kind of the same thing, so why border?

The only reason that I have only one bb cream at home is that when I was in Singapore or HK for holiday, I have tested lots of the bb cream that's available in the market and to be honest, I found all of them too heavy for my taste. This is because most of them have very high SPF, I found any sun screen lotion that has more than SPF 30 too heavy for my skin as I felt I can't breathe though the skin (well, this is just my opinion).... Also, they can turn grey easily and it was quite hard for me to find the right colour (most of them are very pink based or on the other extreme, very yellow based)

Therefore, I have a list of 'alternatives':
The closest match is actually Olay total effect, as there has been lots of good review on Olay's total effect moisturiser and Max factor's foundation. This is the perfect match as it said on the bottle: 'total effects with a touch of MF foundation'. This has SPF15, which is ideal for base. I have used this everyday when I was in Singapore, and with an extra layer of mineral powder foundation, I can go out quickly and that it is moisturising enough for the whole day without suffocated my skin cells.

The 3 at the corner are only available in Asia, sadly. These are from Za, one of my faourite brand. The 2 in front are blend with their beauty powder, which I will explain further in my next review as I have taken the photso ages ago, but just have not got the time to type up the review.

The one in the box is same as the Stila one. These 2 have whitening effect. If you shop in Asia, you will find every single brand with whitening foundation, almost no exceptation. You may ask why Asian people use whitening products all the time? I can say it is due to culture, but I will say it is because our skin tend to be yellowed tone, whitening product does not meant making your face like Michael Jackson, but it is more about even skin tone as well as give the skin a more radiance effect.

Furthermore, although these 2 have not got any SPF, I think these are not bad for an alternative to bb cream, as they claim to have skin improving ingrdients. They are my newly arrive Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect and Bourjois healthy mix foundations. They have been out in the market for ages and I have always heard good reviews about them. But I only managed to purchase them now as I was planning to use £20 to get a good quality bb cream in Singapore, but at the end, I could not find any, as I felt cosmetics in Singapore are quite expensive and that other than Dior bb cream, I really wasn't keen to purchase the rest... so I managed to save £20 and purchase these 2 instead.

So what do you think?


p.s. phew... this is one of the longest review I have ever typed in this blog. @@ so please leave me some feedback!

p.s.s. and the one of the left, the white compact is almay line smoothing foundation, which I have wrote about previously: here


Origins - again, I know

I know, it is another Origins post, well, I have not been paid to write, just 'luckily' find 2 bargains, so post it before it is too late!

I used to be a fan of Garnier's roll on pen, but now as the price is increasing [not sure whether you have realised, the cheap stuff are getting higher while the high end stuff remain around the same price?!], from £4 (when it 1st come out) to almost £9/£10 nowadays, then I may as well find an alternative, since my skin is bit 'tired' of the same thing (or maybe just me not my skin lol)

So I managed to find out that Origins got similar caffeine rich eye cream, and I managed to find this set for only £12.50 in Boots! The eye cream alone is already £20 RRP, so I think this is a bargain, as it comes along with a mini mascara, a mini lip gloss as well as a plastic make up bag.

Also, if you purchase 2 or more Origins product from Boots.com, they are giving out 2 mini size, which I have already forgot what they are as I have tucked them into my miniatures box @@

But oh well, not bad for £12.50, yeh?


p.s. ohhhhh.... here's the link: click here
