Kinokuniya Haul

Kinokuniya is offering a 20% discount this National Day weekend so I took advantage of it to pick up the new Wedding & Travel ($6) magazine which comes with a Shu Uemura whitening skincare sample set, and the August issue of Nuyou ($4) which comes with a full size Garnier Age Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream and Age Lift Pro-X Anti-Aging Whitening Cream Serum that is worth $45. Both GWPs are exclusive to Kinokuniya.


The Shu set includes: White Recovery EX+ Whitening Essence 5ml, Whitening Emulsion 10ml, Brightening Cleansing Oil 8ml and UV Armor Sun Protector Face Cream SPF30 PA++ 10ml.


I also picked up Japanese model Rinka's book, "Love Myself" ($32) which contains her beauty and fashion tips, plus The Towering World of Jimmy Choo ($36.33). Some of you may remember that Rinka used to be the spokesmodel for Aube before the brand got all dowdified into Aube Couture. Although she looks incredibly youthful, Rinka is actually 36 this year. She has perfected that kawaii (cute) princess style that is still enduringly popular in Japan. This book is already into its third printing. I also got the last copy on the shelf at Kino. You can check out her personal blog here

Hi Haru

Thanks brilliant for introducing Japanese model Rinka's book, "Love Myself" ($32), i am always a fan of such book to understand to peek a boo into these pretty people life, what is their fashion, makeup secrets etc.

However, do you think they endorse these products hence they tend to speak good words in their book or do you think they did use these recommended products personally in their life? just curious of your thoughts..thanks ya!
