  • Girls What Can You Buy at Tesco Extra? Tell Me & Win!


    today's topic is *drum rolls*

    Last Saturday I went to the newly revamped Tesco, ops now called Tesco Extra for the extra choices, extra services and extra facilities in Mutiara Damansara. It's just next to Curve, from Borders you can cut through to Tesco Extra. I was getting agitated for not being able to shop for a while and thought to myself why not I reward myself today? How about I try to buy some cosmetic products for under RM100? That’ll surely cure me. Man it wasn't easy with so many choices and varieties of brands and cosmetic products in Tesco! I took like 2 hours deciding which goodies I will buy! My post is filled with spy pictures of the new Tesco Extra so continue reading!

    welcome to Tesco Extra!

    feels like I at overseas supermarket

    first thing I spotted is the apparel section

     my mind filled with beach holidays suddenly

    2 for RM18?! I was thinking to get them

    saw these printed tops! went to try them

    not bad on me! look thinner hehe!

     heart this so much! heart with angel wings!

     for the quirky fun owls

    peacock bling for Deepavali?

    Took a while before I get to the cosmetic section because the "bajus" at apparel section caught my attention! Next time I'm going to a beach getaway in Port Dickson or Pangkor, I can shop here. Colors and styles are casual and hip. Love the beach shorts 2 for RM18! . I couldn't resist not trying one of the tops "Love is in the Air" captioned across it. What would be perfect to complete my look would be to get this awesome costume jewelry to match! My top three picks would be the heart with angel wings, owl and peacock necklace. The price ranges from RM13.90 onwards.

    finally I reach the cosmetic section!

    men & women products can be found here
    (skincare, cosmetic, grooming, hair, bath)

    so my shopping hunt begins zeng zeng
    (don't let the guard catch me please!)

    I didn't know Tesco carried so many brands and choices of cosmetic and skincare. There are all my favorites here from bath to toiletries, cosmetics, skincare, grooming section and hair care. I found several awesome bath sponges and loofahs with long handles (Tesco brand) from only RM1.20 super cheap. I think when I'm making bridal shower gift baskets, I'll come back to get these items to add in. While I was browsing through the products, I found that Tesco Extra has the latest products on shelves! Products that I see in the magazine issues for November mostly can be found here. Check out the spy pics I took of the favorite brands I like!

    Hada Labo products!!!

    been itching to try their new cleansing oil

     Montagne Jeunesse face masks

    skincare brands - Aqualabel, Olay, Garnier, Loreal, Safi
     cosmetic brands - Loreal, Revlon, Maybelline, Silky Girl
    and lots more brands like Clean & Clear

    Neutrogena one of the first early brands I used
    (like when I was 11 years old already shopping!)

    Sunplay SPF 80 PA+++ UV Body Mist
    my favorite easy spray body sun block

    oh I want to try these Sunplay sun blocks too!

    for sunburns, you can use aloe vera to sooth your skin

     Lip Smackers yay! in colorful & yummy flavors
    (Frank collection available as well)

    Biore one of the brands I trust :D
    (I always use the pore pack)

    should I restock this? hmmm
     lots & lots of lip balm choices!

    Biore Water Like Sensation? Jelly texture
     this is new, never see before (should I buy?)

     fruity jelly lip glosses? RM9.90 tempting

    do they carry dessert rose color blusher?
    (need a blusher, I think I'll get one)
    Maybelline mascaras!!! famous mascara ahem

    I couldn't decide what sort of theme I should buy, yes please don't laugh! I always need a theme shopping to match what I want to buy. Like if I'm going on a beach getaway I'll surely grab those beach shorts, comfortable loose tops and sun blocks! If I wanted to buy masks, there's Aqua Label, Loreal,  Montagne Jeunesse, Hada Labo masks. Gosh what about lip balms? did u see my pics on the lip balms? I could get like 10 different lip balms for RM100 and review them.

    Dear Diary, today I feel like it's Coconut Day, why not I put on the Lip Smackers Paul Frank coconut flavor? Bet it taste great with nasi lemak (JOKING DUN TRY).

    Also I thought maybe I should get products for to do a fuss free makeover review on my blog. What magic products should be good for under RM100 for a complete makeover for a natural and flawless looking face? No drama or whatsoever needed for a rainy or casual day out. It'll be easy to remove at night too. This makes for a great getaway make up so I'll need sun block.

    finally after 2 hours

    SO here's my Fuss Free Face products you should get for under RM100 from Tesco Extra. To start one will always have the sun block at hand. I choose the Biore UV Aqua Water Jelly SPF 30 because okay I dig new things and this baby says it has water like sensation (awesome I love watery products). The texture is water jelly! (arghh sounds even more fantastic now). Sun protection is a must nowadays so a min. of SPF30 is good for indoor or outdoor for a few hours. Not for under blazing sun playing sports or building sandcastles on the beach. Must get the SPF50 - 80 for that.

    what's in my Tesco Extra basket now?

    Then comes the amazing all in one face cream to cover, brighten and even out your skin tone. Fuss free right? You don't need expert skills to use the Silky Girl B.B Cream. There are two shades available at Tesco Extra so I choose the natural one for a natural skin tone finish.

    To add a pop of life to your face canvas, I'll go for the Maybelline Angelfit Blusher in dessert rose for a natural healthy glow. It comes with a blusher so it's real convenient to use. Why not lipstick or eye shadows? well I think fuss-free day out make up should be easy and natural. Instead of lipstick I choose two lip balms because I'd like to moisture my lips during make up rest days. The irresistible Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in assorted flavors was my choice. I haven't tried this anywhere yet. My second lip balm was watermelon flavored from Lip Smackers. Quite surprised to find that Tesco Extra also sells Lip Smackers. They were once only available overseas.

    yay mission accomplish!

    What do you think of my buy and choices of products for under RM100? Maybe you can have your own adventure like me at Tesco Extra to shop for beauty products or fashion apparels for under RM100. No make that a challenge! FOR UNDER RM50!

      I will buy for household use.
      I will use RM16 for dutch lady milk, 4 for RM16, this is so worth, the most cheap milk I buy is RM4.8 but here, only RM4 for one, omg >"<
      Then, I will spend RM 9 for chipsmore and oreo biscuit, and RM11.95 for Jacob's, cause Kraft Malaysia is contributing RM0.10 for every RM10 I spend, so I guess I help to contribute RM0.20, better than none >"<
      Last I will buy LUX body shampoo which cause RM12 for 2, well, this thing not cheaper compare to other but my house is running out of body shampoo XD
      So I guess total all I will spend RM48.95, yeah, it's under RM50 ^^

      RM50? It will be enough to fill my coffee addiction. I just discovered a coffee "heaven" at Tesco. Lots of coffee choices such as instant coffee, 3 in 1 coffee and ground coffee. The ground coffee under Tesco brand have so many varieties such as French Roast, Java Sumatra Ground Coffee, Colombian Roast and many more and the prices as low as RM9.90 per pack. Maybe I can add brown sugar into my list and also Tesco brand Fresh Milk. Not forgetting some shortbread cookies to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee.

      I'm already in jovial Christmas-y mood and have done my research on possible value Christmas purchases at Tesco. Here's my simple yet value-laden RM50 shopping list :

      (1.)Christmas pressie for 6 year old niece
      :RM 15.90 Barbie Doll (entry level) (normal price RM24.90)

      (2.)Christmas pressie for 4 year old nephew
      : RM 19.90 Match-It Education Assorted Learning Puzzle (normal price RM 26.90)

      Have checked the condition of my previous Christmas Tree and Ornaments, everything is still in mint condition and can be recycled except for the LED lights, so I will get from Tesco

      (3.) 100L LED Light & 10L LED Star Tree Top for my Christmas Tree
      : RM 12.90 per unit

      Lastly, for years I have been mailing Christmas Cards without fail to my favorite Aunt in Scotland, so this year will be no exception!~

      (4.) Christmas Card
      : RM 1.90 per card

      So RM(15.90 + 19.90 + 12.90 + 1.90)
      = RM 50.60 (yaay! just RM 0.60 extra and that's it!)
