This post is suppose to go up on Sunday but it will be too late if I scheduled it for Sunday. So I’ve decided to push it to Saturday instead.
A few days ago I received a copy of Isetan exclusive newsletter through the mail. It’s quite a surprise because usually I update myself with their latest newsletter by going to their official website. This time I don’t have to. If you did not receive the hard copy newsletter, fret not. I’ve uploaded the whole newsletter for you in the blog a few days ago. Click on Isetan Exclusive Beauty Treats (28th March to 30th March 2014) to see all the promotions available.
I was quite happy to see page 26 in the newsletter because Bioderma is here! So I note down on my calendar to remind myself to pay a visit to Isetan on the 28th March.
Yes girls. Bioderma is finally available for us Malaysians. Here’s how I found out. Initially I thought Bioderma is just having a promotional counter, just like Spanks previously so I speed up to second floor where the Event Hall is located. I couldn’t spot Bioderma so I make an enquiry at i-Club Counter. i-Club Counter personnel told me Bioderma is at cosmetic floor. I speed down to first floor and search through the whole floor and still couldn’t find them. I was getting quite anxious because I need to be the first 30 customers to be entitle for a promo which I’ll explain later. I went up to Burberry Beauty counter and ask the makeup artist there. He’s someone I know and he’s very much into all the imported beauty related so he should know. It turns out he didn’t know. What I do next was like amazing race. I search through floor by floor, section by section and I still fail to spot Bioderma. I took out the newsletter book and read again. See I told ya it’s like amazing race show lol.
Then I took notice of the small yellow blurb on the bottom left corner that said “New At Isetan KLCC”. This means they have a permanent counter/section. I could guess that Bioderma is under the same distributor with Phyto, Nuxe and Lierac and I make a wild guess that Phyto is somewhere near cosmeceutical section. I rush back down to first floor and voilà. I spot Bioderma and I was right 🙂
Bioderma have a very very small section in Isetan KLCC. The product selection is also very small. It’s no wonder I could overlooked.
Before I show you what I bought from Bioderma, here is the 3-Day Special promotion starting from 28th March to 30th March at Isetan KLCC. This is one of the reason why I went to Bioderma. The main reason is I wanted to check out what’s the hustle and bustle with Bioderma that got everyone raving about.
I bought a bottle of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution 500ml for RM100 and I got the same Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution 100ml worth RM38 for free. If according to my calculation based on the price for 500ml, 100ml is only worth RM20. I’m not sure how RM38 value came about. Anyway this promotion is only valid for Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution. I’m not sure if you could squeeze the same promotion for other Micelle Solution range.
So far there is only two sizes available for purchase. 250ml is selling for RM70 while 500ml is selling for RM100. You should know which one is more worth it 🙂 . The cute 100ml is not available for purchase though. Too bad because it’s super cute!
Bioderma is also having an Early Bird Special for the first 30 customers. I thought there will be a crowd but seems like there’s none. Most of the customers there went to purchase Phyto instead. I was the first customer actually so I’m entitled for a 4-piece deluxe miniature gift set with any Bioderma purchase. The gift set is nothing related to Bioderma. In fact I was given products from Phyto, Lierac and Nuxe. Nonetheless I was pleased with it. The products I got is Lierac Coherence Day & Night Cream Anti-Wrinkle & Firming 15ml, Phyto Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm 15ml, Nuxe Hand and Nail Cream 15ml and Nuxe Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid 15ml. Not bad eh? All generous size.
That’s not all. I also get a chance to participate in Sure Win Lucky Dip for the purchase of RM100. I sure do love the sound of the lucky dip. It means everyone will get something 🙂 . Coincidently I won another Nuxe Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid 15ml. I’m already a happy girl.
After I paid and collected my purchase from Bioderma, I went to Isetan voucher redemption counter to redeem my cash voucher. I turned back and saw the Bioderma BA standing behind me, waiting for me. She ask me if I could fill in my details in a form and I could take home another set of samples. I was so shocked with her kindness and I told her how grateful I am with the gesture. So I fill in the form and she hand me a set of samples. She took time to explain to me what each of the sample is for and how to use. Two thumbs up for the nicest BA in Isetan!
The set of sample contain Phyto Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm 15ml, Nuxe Pore-Reducing Serum 2ml, Lierac Premium Extreme Regenerating Serum 2ml, Phyto Phytorhum Energizing Shampoo 12ml and Nuxe Eye and Lip Global Anti-Aging Cream 2ml.
Bioderma have always been in my wish list although I’m not so into cleansing water. It took me zero second to think if I should purchase it. I just did it without any consideration. I’ve been wanting to get this for so long 🙂
Just for your info, Bioderma only entered Isetan KLCC early March 2014. I ask the BA if it will be made available in SaSa and she said most probably it will. Until that is confirmed, do drop by Isetan KLCC to get your Bioderma fix. They are located at Isetan First Floor, at the cosmeceutical section where Talika is. When you spot Nuxe and Phyto, you will spot Bioderma as well.
This promotion is only available until this Sunday 30th March. After that there will not be any GWP available anymore.
