Kenzo haul at Metro sale

I dropped by Metro department store yesterday which was having a one-day-only 20% sale storewide. The store, especially the beauty floor, was absolutely teeming with women who were all there to stock up on prestige beauty brands which otherwise are hardly ever discounted. Other department stores in Singapore offer at best, 6% to 12% rebates on their credit cards so Metro's 20% sale is actually the best deal as some of the beauty brands are directly discounted while for the brands that are price-controlled such as Estee Lauder, Shiseido and Kanebo, Metro gives out credit vouchers that can be used on other brands.

The Kenzo counter was offering the usual selection of skincare and fragrance miniature GWPs. With purchase of $200, you can get a white jewellery case but my room is already too cluttered to keep accumulating such bulky stuff so I decided to get L'eau by Kenzo EDT 100ml ($105) and the Clearwater Gel ($56) which is a hydrating and relaxing face lotion. Total damage after the discount = $128.80.

This was enough to qualify for the GWP with purchases of $160, a furry white pouch with a full size Clear Eyelid-and-Lash Gel (eye makeup remover) 100ml, Rice Steam Enveloping Velvety Wash 50ml, Cream with a Zing 3ml, Face Phenomenon (moisturising serum) 2ml and a Day & Night kit comprising Vital-Ice Cream 15ml, Ice-cold Eye Cream 5ml, Cosmic Cosmetic Cream 15ml and Relaxing Whipped Cream 5ml. The furry pouch is super soft and very well-padded, which is excellent for storing fragile beauty items.

Don't you just love sales? :-)
