Period covered: 27 June - 2 August
Oh yea! World Youth Day 2016 is announced to be held in Krakow, Poland. A beautiful destination I have visited in 2005. Should I pay a pilgrimage again three Summers later? I have plenty of time to ponder...
Oh and also, remember to check out my current Giveaway - link! which will end on 10th Aug. Not a big deal if you find the prizes this time small, 'cause I'm gonna hold a bigger one if this one has good response!
The Week in Acquisition
1. The Body Shop Factory Outlet
Pictured above, I managed to pick up two bronzers and a highlighter when I popped in the outlet store. All three are Made in Italy and smooth like silk, if not smoother!
The Body Shop Bronzing Powder "01 Light Matte" "03 Medium Matte" $98 for two
The Body Shop Leona Lewis Shimmer Palette "02 Oh Deer! Blush" $49
2. Bonjour Summer Sale
Baby Wipes $4.9 for both
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Shower Gel $9.9
Softymo Deodorant Powder Spray "Grapefruit" $19.9
3. From Girlfriends
Girlfriend C, who's recently engaged (Congratulations!), handed me a few bits when we met up for lunch couple days ago. A pack of Lion leg relief cooling patches 休足時間, which I have also briefly tried back in my Tokyo trip, a tube of Biore Aqua Rich Rich Watery BB Water Base SPF50+ PA+++, which is released in Japan and Taiwan but not locally, and some pineapple cakes - yummy~
Then, my cousin Honor also sent me a tube of Maybelline the Falsies, which doesn't work for her, to test out. I know this is not the most hygienic thing to do in the world, but well, if it works, I'll buy a new tube, if it doesn't, to the bin it goes!
4. The Body Shop (not outlet)
Had to make a purchase in order to renew my membership at the store, therefore I finally gave in and purchased the Brazil Nut delicacy. Moringa is a very comfortable, easy to wear, soft floral scent, while Brazil Nut is a sweet, nutty, almost caramel-like fragrance. As the total of my order is over HK $400, I had an extra 20% off, cool!
The Body Shop Body Mist "Moringa" $109 (100 ml) > $87.2
The Body Shop Beautifying Oil "Brazil Nut" $159 (100 ml) > $127.2
The Body Shop Eau de Toilette "Brazil Nut" $149 (30 ml) > $119.2

Accidentally walked in a Colourmix and out I came with three brow pencils. I honestly have no idea why the two shades of laLawish pencils are priced differently, interesting, no?
Tina Rose Eyebrow "Olive Brown" $29
laLawish Eyebrow "LB" $17.10
laLawish Eyebrow "DB" $11.40

| Ahava Moisturizing Lotion SPF15 Review |
| FOTD - Summer Radiant Glow |
Reskin Solution Mist
Smells of clean peaches, has an ultra fine spray dispenser that is more like a fog than droplets. Calming, hydrating, but also sebum-controlling and refreshing. So great!
Make Up Forever Smoky Lash
I do not wear this alone, but on top of my other current (favourite too) mascara from Majolica Majorca. This alone will slightly make my curls drop, but on top of the MJ, it adds much drama and volume. Also, although this is not the Aqua (water-proof) version, it still stays put very well on me, in HK's humidity.
