Voce, Nonno and CanCam Magazines Haul

Dropped by Kinokuniya (Ngee Ann City) yesterday evening to check out the new air shipment of Japanese magazines. I came home with Voce, Nonno and CanCam.

The January issue of CanCam (S$19.30) comes with a L'Occitane "Snow Rose Love Set" that includes a Snow Rose print cotton handkerchief and a sachet of Snow Rose Body Cream (8ml).

The body cream is enriched with sweet almond oil and rose absolute, and leaves a subtle iridescent veil on the body. The handkerchief measures 40x40cm and feels quite soft.

The magazine is a bit pricey even after the member's discount but the Snow Rose print is just too pretty to pass up! Furthermore, it's quite rare for L'Occitane to do a collaboration item with a Japanese magazine.

After deliberating for several days, I also finally picked up the January issue of Nonno (S$17) which comes with a glitter-covered Milkfed zip pouch. The pouch is padded and quite well-made with neatly reinforced seams both externally and internally. However, I suspect that the glitter pieces do flake off if rubbed with too much force. There are already a couple of empty spots on the reverse side of my pouch. Nevertheless, I love the sweet pink and metallic blue colour scheme.

It's soooo bling!

I picked up the January issue of Voce (S$15.50) mainly for the spring collection preview and the awards list for the best beauty products of 2010. It also comes with Shiseido Benefique NT Lotion 8ml, NT Emulsion I 8ml and Cotton N.
