Gucci made pretty good smelling fragrance all year round. I’ve said this before and I’m going to said it again. You can never go wrong with Gucci fragrance. I was blessed with a few Gucci fragrance and although I like them all, I can’t tell which is my favourite because they all smell so good.

The foundation of Gucci’s new Bamboo is to grab the brand’s most recognizable design signatures in references to Gucci woman of today, which is strong and graceful. Why bamboo?

Murad Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++: A photoshop in a bottle with skincare product benefits and invisible sunscreen

When I received the invitation from Murad to attend the official launch event for the NEW Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++, I quickly concluded that it is going to be a sunscreen product launch due to the word “Broad Spectrum” within the product name. Can’t blame me though, we are in the middle of a sunscreen Olympic whereas most of the brands are releasing or reformulate sunscreen products. I extended the invite to Arpita and when she asked what was the launch about, I told her it’s a new sunscreen product LOL. Nope, it’s definitely not a direct sunscreen product and I’ll tell you why.

Does GST Affect Your Beauty Spending?

Does GST affect beauty spending
We are now mid through the third month since GST first implemented into our lives. Before that there has been a lot of ranting on how the burden of GST will affect our life. I spoke to numerous foreigners working in Malaysia on this matter. To them GST 6% is nothing and that we are too paranoid about it. I don’t blame us. I mean, it is our first time. For sure there will be lots of hoo-ha everywhere. Unfortunately for us beauty enthusiasts, beauty products falls under taxable category. I was told that Sephora was so crowded on the day before the 1st Apr GST implementation 😀 . Are you one of them who did last minute shopping at Sephora? I didn’t and I don’t regret any of it.
