I was reading one of the Estée Stories article this morning and one of the article caught my attention. Gift With Purchase or in short GWP. How the entire GWP started back in those days and how it remain as one of the most brilliant and salient sales strategy to date in the beauty industry. I remember back in 2010 when I started all this beauty craze. Admittedly, GWP affected a lot on the decision whether to purchase or not to purchase a certain product or amount. That was because beauty counters at departmental stores do not offer discount. GWP is the way to go. Every week I would keep a close eye on Clarins and later on Estée Lauder for their GWP promo. These two brands had most of my money lol!
Two weeks ago, I was at an event at Sunway Pyramid and the venue was exactly in front of the Estée Lauder store. So there I was, standing at the event, munching on some sweet crunchy grapes while waiting for other blogger friends to arrive and I was staring straight to the display in front of Estée Lauder store. I thought I saw a red bottle but I could not tell. You see, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair or ANR as it is fondly referred to mostly has always been in the amber brown bottle. And because I was quite a distance away from the display, I could not tell if it is a brown bottle or it is really a red bottle. Last year Estée Lauder did a Limited Edition Gold bottle so it is not a surprise if they came out with another Limited Edition bottle for Year of The Rooster.
True enough, Estée Lauder came out with a Limited Edition Red Metallic Bottle for this year’s Chinese New Year 😀
Limited Edition bottles is definitely a collector’s item. I still keep my last year’s Gold bottle well and it comes with a Monkey charm key ring too. This year’s design however does not come with any charm. But the beautiful striking red bottle itself is already a charmer.
Don’t forget, ANR works even better with Micro Essence. You may click on this link for a full review on how I achieved a translucent angelic glow using both Micro Essence and ANR together 😉
The Limited Edition Estée Lauder Red Metallic Bottle is available and it is only available in 50ml bottle. Get yours now for RM400, while stock lasts and only for a limited time only.

While I am still on the face mist kick, I better start talking to you about every face mist I have. Among all of the face mist I own, I am more excited with this one. The Estée Lauder Micro Essence Aquaceutical Mist was sent to me by surprise a few months ago. Why am I excited about this one you asked? First of all, when I received it I am not aware that they came out with a face mist version of the Micro Essence! I thought they sent me another Micro Essence lotion but in a small bottle. Estée Lauder like to secretly launch new product lol. Then this is a face mist. I LOVE FACE MIST. And it’s Estée Lauder, a brand which I spent quite a lot of money on when I started my skincare journey besides Clarins.
Micro Essence is a lotion that works so well with Advanced Night Repair (ANR) where it “carries along” ANR with it, penetrating deeply into the skin surface. If ANR alone is superb for your skin, pairing it with Micro Essence is even better. So what is this Micro Essence Aquaceutical Mist and what it does? Same as the lotion version, this mist is actually an essence-in-mist that reactivate the skin’s youthful and gives the skin an angelic glow. It has concentration of exclusive Micro-Nutrient Bio-Ferment and Climate Conditioning Complex to get the skin adapt to resist the dehydrating effects of changing micro-climates.
It comes in an identical bottle look as the lotion, except that this Aquaceutical Mist is smaller and the bottle is made from plastic as opposed to the glass for the lotion. The mist nozzle is absolutely classy. It’s in gold colour and has patented nozzle mists out vapor-light mist. In a layman term, the mist is the finest you will ever encounter and it smells exactly the same as the lotion version. Because the mist is so fine and the nozzle does not explode too far away, you have to hold the bottle closer to your face. For an essence-in-mist type of face mist, I do not find this product to be heavy or leave a sticky residue on my face. I usually have this in my bag when I go out. I have used it on bare face and I also set my makeup with it. All good! However the mist is so fine that I find re-misting is necessary if you want to keep you skin fresh for a longer time.
Bad news for my oversea readers and friends. This Micro Essence Aquaceutical Mist is created specifically for Asian skin in Asia. Therefore you may or may not find this other than Asian countries.

There is an eye cream which I have been using for the past few months and I have totally forgotten to tell you about it! This Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Eye Balm I love so much so that I make sure I left a small dollop in my jar so that I can tell you about it 😛 .
Eye care product is skincare step that many could easily skip or forgotten about it. Not me. I know how some girls would deliberately apply their face serum and cream over their eyes in order to skip eye care. I just don’t. I remember many years ago I was told why face product are not meant for the eyes. Since that day I make sure I use a separate eye cream and also making sure I do not over-apply my face cream over my eye lid. Think about this, your eye area is like a piece of soft tissue paper. Our face area equals to 10 pieces of tissue paper. Can you imagine a product meant for 10 pieces of tissue paper ON the one piece of tissue paper? That would be too harsh.
Eh? Where is my Estée Lauder mask?
That was me two weeks ago when I realized I have misplaced my Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Mask Boost after a quick spring cleaning of the vanity table. My skin has been so dry. I know, that is odd coming from me as I have always complaint about oily skin for the entire of my life. The only cream mask that I knew will boost my skin is Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Mask Boost.
Brands do love to tease us with Limited Edition releases don’t they? 😉 . Just like Christmas, this year Chinese New Year we are seeing some Limited Edition release. This year Estée Lauder took their best selling Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (ANR in short) and gave it a new look! Included along with the Estée Lauder Limited Edition Golden Advanced Night Repair is an unique Year of the Monkey keychain.
