I didn't buy 'too' much in these 2 months LOCALLY. Excluding the $yen I spent in Tokyo, I have kept my spending within control. However, it is still a little pic-heavy, hence I'll try to keep this post short in words, hope you don't mind!
May began with a trip to Choi-Fung - replenished some items for my sister, and get tons of samples. Then there was a (not big) impulsive spending at Watson's which involved a bunch of facial wipes. Finally, there's a planned attack on glitter nail polishes, as my sister and I found this category lacking in my collection. Of course, there are the usual irrational bits and unexplainable pieces together with some magazine freebies.
Let's begin with the Choi-Fung shopping.
*A13 Joseristine Salicylic Acid Cleansing Gel *4 (US$13.3) - My sister, Jen, uses this on her arms to get rid of Keratosis pilaris, KP. I mentioned it before in this post.
*A917 JimmBenny Mango Oat Body Scrub *2 (US$9.2) - For Jen.
*A1209 Ki Squalane Hydro-Skin Exfoliator (US$4.4)
I got $1.3 off the total sum because I collected certain number of stamps, and below are all the freebies/samples...
*A282 Ki Sensitive Moisturizing Paper Mask
*A281 Ki Collagen Concentrate Paper Mask
*A3808 CL Bamboo Charcoal Peeling Gel
*A3747 CL Bamboo Charcoal Icy Shower Gel

*A3543 Joseristine Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Cleansing Gel 3in1
*A3738 Joseristine BB blánc BB Magic Cream SPF 30/PA++
Below are some samples obtained with magazine or at beauty counters...

*Make Up Bag (free with JP magazine) - as seen in 2nd pic of this post
*Clarins White Plus HP Intensive Whitening Smoothing Serum (with the same JP magazine) - used this and liked it. wait for my empties post!
Then there was a small haul at Watson's because I needed some wet hand towels... Of course I didn't just get those... :S

*Mentholatum Medicated Acnes Point Clear (US$4.2)

*Watson's Invigorating Wet Tissues #grapefruit *3 (US$1.8) - this was the reason I went into the store!
*Watson's Invigorating Wet Tissues #lemongrass *3 (US$1.8)
In the middle of the month, due to stress, and the fact that I don't have many glitter polishes in my collection for J3 to play with... (which is a better excuse?)... I brought her to several beauty stores and picked up several nail polishes. Honestly, I'm quite excited to get these. And honestly, my stress was indeed released a little... Good!

For a month titled "total beauty purchase ban", I have spent around US$117.4, which include a bunch of stuff I picked up on my sister's behalf. I'd say, I accept my result and I really did appreciate my effort! ;) What did you pick up recently?
Lazy silly Jacq :")
