Freebies A-Hauling: Freebies & A Vichy Update

I’m off today and so what better way to spend it but by getting freebies. Was happy to get a few of the things I wanted.

Kiehl’s new pore minimizing range is out. Called Rare Earth, it looks to be a keeper for those with oily skin and enlarged pores. Even if you don’t have oily skin overall, it can still be used just for those target spots. I got some samples to try (very happy). The KCRs at 1 Utama were very friendly. Go check it out!

Printed out the Clarins HydraQuench sample voucher from PrettyBeautiful’s site and redeemed the Smoothing Gel from the range (happy again).


I Nuovi freebie redemption is still ongoing, they had all 4 colours when I dropped by! I chose Charcoal just so you know (happy happy). Sweet SA there who speaks only Chinese but understands English. Go get it at around lunchtime for better choices and to avoid the Out Of Stock syndrome. Don’t bother going at night, I tried last week and was turned away.


Vichy at Guardian is on sale! At least the green range is from what I was told. There is also a nice lady giving out Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care sachet samples. The product, usually retailing for RM 100 for 50ml is selling for just under RM 88 until the end of the month! What better time to try it out after reading such rave reviews. The rest of the range is also on discount of about 15% if my memory succeeds me.

That is all for now. Will update with pictures once I have them. Have a good hauling week!

Face It: A cleanser and a mask? Too good to be true?

As I thought of what to review first, it came to me that I should post about something I already use or have used. This is where Neutrogena‘s Deep Clean Cleanser/Mask. I didn’t even think about reviewing this product due to the fact that it has been in the market for such a long time. The launching of Neutrogena‘s Fine Fairness range, where they were also promoting the Deep Clean range brought it to mind again.


Back to the product, it can be used daily as a cleanser or an oil-controlling mud mask. Now, I have dry combination skin, with an oilier T-zone and dry, sensitive cheeks. I actually bought this after having had success using the Foaming Cleanser from the same range. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for this one.


I find this product too drying as a cleanser. Even by reducing the amount used, I still get that slightly tight feeling after washing off with water. Thus, I don’t think it would work very well for me as a mask. People with oily skin might benefit from it though as it contains Kaolin.

Loves: 2 in 1 product, good for people with oily skin, can be used as an oil-controlling mask
Gripes: Too drying for dry skins

This Cleanser/Mask can be yours for just RM 18.90 for 100ml and goes on sale quite often at most pharmacies. It is both dermatologist and allergy tested and is non-comedogenic. A little goes a long way and one tube will last a lifetime.
