Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Clarins Beauty Fair Reported!


the battle begins at 10am
(sorry i took pic at 11am coz war)

you've 2 pardon my hp camera
it's very sensitive to movements & d place is pack!

this is where all the stocks are place
(submit order form, take number, wait for number, pay)

this is the place i waited for my number 2 be called

your battle is over here
don't forget credit card is only for rm200 above

Women from all walks of life gather this Friday morning for the battle of skin care goods at Concorde Hotel, Kuala Lumpur (next to Lot 10). I was there at 10am & already a battalion of fighters were formed inside at specific battle areas. Blood was shed on the Cash Table instead where products of limited and individual ranges were sold fast for CASH ONLY. Thank God I manage to grab my 2 last Countour Body Shower Gel by squezing and calling out "SHOWER GEL SHOWGERL?????" to the sales lady. She shouted back:


I shouted "I'LL TAKE BOTH!!!"

cash only table
a range of face, body & cosmetic at this area!

Cash Only Table
Right after you go in, on your right is a special corner just for cash only products. The range of products here is extensive and might not be available at other tables in this sale. Thus it is important you spot check this place first. When you found your items, quickly ask the sales lady for the stock. She'll give you a number (and put a tag on your items like a bag depositing counter). Your stock will still be there with your number so go ahead n do more shopping. Other counters are going by order forms, so whoever pay first gets first. Products will not be hold for u.

How's the Crowd?
A lot of people by lunch time, morning still tolerable. But a lot of things gone liao before lunch time. They give u a product order form (which is also a price list!) you need to select the product and write how many quantity on it. Keep the form until paying counter, where the Sales Assistant will go take your selected products from their stock place (just behind them) and put them all in a box. You'll be given a number, which they will call out when it's time to pay. You may sit at the waiting area (got chairs). Credit card above rm200 only.

BEWARE! even if u arrive first, manage to order those limited products but by the time u go n pay IT MIGHT BE OUT OF STOCK. It’s WHOEVER PAY FIRTS GET FIRST, don’t take too long to pay for your orders or ur products will bye bye.

Cheap or not? well better than buying full price at clarins institutes and counters. Mostly 20-50% off. Sets are like cheaper by rm100 or more. Sets also going off fast as this is the first thing people grab (cute? like pregnancy kit) Skin Care starter sets are popular too. Bad news no member points given ok! But if you spend rm400 above you get a pack of freebies!! (random trial size products)

MANUFACTURING DATES? I'm quite shock Clarins is selling products as old as from 2005 (and not even that cheap). Don't anybody know that the shelf life of cosmetics/skincare is 30 months? It gets shorter if the products are plant based or natural. Check out FDA on Shelf Life and Expiration Date.

Perfume? i did not buy, i would advise not to, as manufacturing dates are from 2005/2006. EDT don’t last that long, if u buy 3-4 years old i cannot guarantee how long your fragrance will last. The sales girl told me perfume can last 5 years (so your perfumes are already 3-4 years old hello).

My buys:
Pregnancy Kit (no i am not pregnant!) manufactured date (06)
2 x Contour Shower Gel 200ml RM40 each! (05/07)
Face Lifting X 1 - rm105 manufactured (07) yes!

my lovely shower gel

bought wrong kit!
i thought i bought the one wih the massage oil
(got the one with strech mark control instead)

the freebies!
(random pack with 4 freebies inside given for purchases above rm400)


  1. i hope you are not like pak lah, like, "no you are not pregnant" and then tomorrow give birth!!

    if you are not pregnant, why buy the pregnancy test kit? must ask boi2 not to be so careless!!!

    so, the shower gel cheaper than your normal purchase price lah? good for you.

  2. haha well the pregnancy set has:

    body scrub with bamboo powder 200ml
    stretch mark control 200ml
    (both cost under rm200 each on retail)

    and travel size:
    huile 'tonic' body treament oil
    energizing emulsion
    beauty flash balm

    packaging is a nice grab bag with cute rabbit soft toy!

    i was tellin this girl i chatted with that it's call pregnancy kit bcoz they can't name it "Fat Girl" kit (or Fei Poh Set)right! haha

    AND YES i got the LAST TWO CONTOUR Shower Gel ! MUAHAH 1/2 price each!! (that's like after they open for sale already so many ppl grab! last 2 i get..phew)

  3. hi miu! My frend help me to get this purifying whitening body mist, the bottle underneath will write the manufacture's date rite?? mine is E10202..aiyoo means yr 02?? wahh still can use or not?? :( *wanan cry di*

  4. OHH no no that one not manufacturing date. If u check the bottom/side/somewhere there is a sticker label that says:

    diimport dan diedarkan oleh blablabla tel bla bla

    MFG: Sept 06 <-- that's the one.

  5. Oh is outside the box!! hahah is oct 06. phewww...thank god..

    I bought the multi blusher hor..no dates one...in plastic cover one...tat one on the surface got tiny tiny drops of oil wor. Can still use??

    And i also bought the clear lip gloss. aiyo duno can use not..now i so scared. :|

  6. haha lucky ah u! if 02, i ask u burry ur thing liao.

    multi blusher no date ah ? :( oil will suface after a long period of storage. Still can use, but i hope ur skin not sensitive type.

    these cosmetics can last very long if "untouch" and store properly. Once u use, last few months only (bcoz contaminated with air n germs). For old stocks, maybe u need to worry about the quality, how lasting it is.. after apply, and if u have sensitive skin better dun use.

  7. Miu, thanks ya!! jst now lucky u teach me how to see the date.. or else tat one already in the tong sampah di. aiyoo..thank god. i tot my rm70 burned!! haha

    Ok...now my heart "relax" di. :) thanks.

  8. but don't buy products that is manufactured for 2-3years without caution yeah. No safe u know.

  9. Miu,

    wow lots of pics!

    the staffs there didnt want us to take pictures coz afraid we got proof about their sales gimmick, like so called original price 308 but actually 220, n it seems thats a huge discounts they are OFFERING to us!



  10. wah MEL u very familiar about FOMCA?

    ish.. i live so long in msia i duno what is fomca.. ok la i know through school books only haha. Wait, u complain before is it? I have lotsa complains also about other warehouse sales products also!!

    err... R U FROM FOMCA u sound like HERO now!!

  11. hi Miu!! the link FDA on shelf life..mascara use for 3 mths can discard??!! Somemore i seldom use mascara worr, 3 mths very fast leh.

    Oh...i wanted my frend to get me hand and nail treatment from clarins. Do u see them there??

    Do check out my online shopping blog,having SALES now.http://doroshi-onlinecloset.blogspot.com

  12. haha it's a guideline nia..

    if u store n use properly can delay a bit. They worry germs grow u know.. coz we r full of germs (HAHAH)

    hand and nail treatment no see leh.. either all finish grab at Cash Table? I went in at 10am already few things gone (like shower gel left 2 only)

    wah ur sales i saw, nice the miss sixty mini skirt. U bought from today at armada??

  13. no la...i bought it in london long time ago..and i seldom wear tat mini skirt..so is very new..so am selling it lo. :)

    Did u grab anything from miss sixty?? I didnt even hear the news abt this sigh. :( guess i miss tis one.

  14. i avoid hush puppies sale, too many people and usually what i want can't find n no size.

    this thing old fashion/stock i dun really buy..

    but cosmetics/perfume, not like people know which season it is n some smells are classic.

  15. Whoa, what an exhaustive list! Thank you!
