Kiehl's, Mango & Miss Selfridge haul

This week, it seemed like there were great clothing buys every where I turned with all the new spring collections arriving in stores such as Zara, Mango and Warehouse. I haven't been tempted by much at Mango in recent months but I fell in love with several pieces in its new spring collection, including suits, cute cardigans and casual tops. Judging from the collection, lime green is one of the key trend colours this season. I ended up getting this suit and casual cotton top.

At Miss Selfridge, I picked up this great little turquoise sling purse. It was S$33 originally but I got a 15% discount with my OCBC credit card so I paid only S$28 for it, just a few dollars more than the UK retail price of £12. Love the pleat details on it!

At Kiehl's, I also picked up the Over-Night Biological Peel (S$99) and the Acne Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment (S$50). I've been noticing quite a few acne scars and skin discolorations on my cheeks, probably from not using sunscreen religiously, so I'm trying out various peeling products to try to combat these. The prices are actually not that much more than the US retail price where the Peel is US$42 and the Acne Treatment is US$30. Once you've added in the US sales taxes and shipping costs to Singapore, it's not that much cheaper so it makes more sense to just buy it locally where I can get a 10% rebate with my Tangs Citibank card plus I can ask for various samples from the SAs.

With purchase of S$160, the Tangs Orchard counter is currently giving away a eco-bag and a deluxe skincare sample. The SA gave me a 40ml bottle of the Calendula Toner. I also received sample sachets of the Yerba Mate line, Brightening Botanical Mask and Line Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate from her.

is the acne blemish control serum good?
cos i've never tried kiehl's product before.
is it like a pimple gel or moisturizer for the whole face?

Hi Sherlyn,

I'm still trying out the acne serum. It seems alright but I think the Overnight Biological Peel is making me break out :-( The acne serum can be used over the whole face. I don't think it's strong enough to be used as a pimple gel.

I went to a Kiehls event on Tuesday, and I must say I was really impressed. I had never used any of their products before, but I've just started, and while its early days, I do love their skin rescuer right now. x
