StrawberryNET.com has an extra special additional 10% off their Christmas sets so I knew it was a good time to pick up something I’d been eyeing for a while. 2 somethings actually 😛
One is the Bliss Blood Orange body wash set and the other is the YSL Love Collection compact powder. The latter is simply stunning! This YSL Love Collection compact powder was limited edition from a couple of years back.
Doesn’t it look so cute? You are supposed to be able to use it all over as a face brightener or as compact powder. However, I tested this the day after I got it (yes I defiled it!) and the pink heart makes such a gorgeous pink blush! Its light and sheer and so pretty! Sigh… 🙂
As a compact powder, its hard to manage to find a brush small enough to just pick up the powder surrounding the blush (although a sponge puff comes with it), but if you use a large fluffy brush and a light hand, and pick up the pink and powder and apply all over, there are some skin brightening qualities. The powder is super fine and light and makes my skin feel so nice! Do let me know if you want a more indepth review on this one because its not available in stores anymore although you can still find it online. RRP was US$60 but I got it for US$32 on StrawberryNET.com (sale).
The other item I picked up is the Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper bath set.
I’d say that get this if you like strong citrus scents because this one is strong! The cleaning properties are alright but the scent is an interesting spicy citrus mix that is rejuvenating especially if you’ve had a long day. Its also a great pick me up in the mornings.
The body butter, despite its name, is light and absorbs quickly into the skin without feeling icky and sticky. My skin felt soft and smooth after using this so I’m really happy because I’ve got a bad habit of not applying body lotion. Also, fortunately unlike the shower gel, the scent in the body butter is light so it isn’t cloying. I believe Bliss is a spa in New York and Bliss products are also available at Sephora ION Orchard Singapore. I saw it there but it was a little pricey so did not buy. Thankfully so because I paid about US$14.50 for this set on StrawberryNET.com (sale)! I think there are a few more sets available and they came gift-wrapped for Christmas! 🙂
Buying from Strawberrynet.com
I’ve received some enquiries in comments about my experience buying from Strawberrynet.com. I don’t know about others, but I’ve only had good experiences shopping with them.
Delivery is quick (I get my packages within 1 week usually) and they always come by Registered Post for Free Shipping so its trackable and relatively safe. I’ve never been taxed for my purchases and I’ve never had it held over by our local customs.
Do note that prices of some products might be higher than retail locally so you should know your prices before you shop online. However, these prices may be lower than elsewhere in the world because its a borderless world online anyway.
I especially like StrawberryNET.com for the deals they occasionally have, like now, where you get extra discounts on top of your loyalty discounts. Yes I’m at the maximum loyalty discount of 10% and add to that the sale prices and the extra 5% off for purchases of 3 items or more and well, I’m a happy camper! 😀
I guess Christmas came a little early for me this year. Did you indulge in the StrawberryNET.com sale? I think its on for a few days more 🙂
