Have you ever gone to The Body Shop’s stores lately?
If you don’t know yet they are having their sale until Monday, tomorrow! Last Thursday, I posted their mind blowing sale on my press page. I hope you read about that, if not you still have until tomorrow to hit their stores and experience their fabulous sale.
When I got to know about their great deal sale, I immediately hit their store at Robinsons Galleria . Honestly, I never tried any product from their cosmetic line. That’s why I grabbed the opportunity to try it out as it is also timely that I just finished my loose powder mineral foundation and blush on.
It was actually my first time to haul at The Body Shop. I always get items from this store as a gift. I remember a classmate of mine way back in college that really waits patiently to their sale. I can’t get it why she does it until now.
What I am using before was a loose mineral foundation and I tried to find it at their cosmetic line. To my surprise, they got a counter part of it, which can be considered as a little bit upgraded of the brand I use. They call it EXTRA VIRGIN MINERALS Foundation. Because I am not that familiar to it, I ask the sales representative about the product and I also ask her to choose the color that matches my skin.
At first, I am quite hesitant to buy the item because I want a darker shade and the darker shade next to 108 golden ivory was out of stock. She insisted that it was the shade for me because I am acidic and I need a 1 tone lighter to my skin. I actually, don’t want to believe her. (lol! stubborn me!) Good thing I have a friend with me to take a look at the foundation applied to my face and according to her it really matches my skin. And so I gave in…
They don’t have a loose mineral blush on, as what I usually use but their baked blush on amazed me because of its appearance. I asked about the shade that suites me and again the sales representative choose the one for fair skinned. She said I have a fair skin but i think I’m morena. And again, she tested the 02 coral blush to me and the corail nuance of it and it looks good. With that, I hae nothing to say… lol!
I also got their peach shower gel. It just cost 197php for 250ml! It’s really super sale!
You know how much did I pay for the loose foundation, blush on and shower gel in all? It was just 1,500+K php! I know it may sound exaggerated for some if I say that it’s affordable, maybe not, but it is a very good deal already. Because if it is not sale, I might pay more or less 3,000php. It means, I saved almost or more than 50%.
With my total purchase, I also got a free lifetime membership card. I always love to get privileged card like this in different shops because it offers good deals when shopping.
And because I can’t get enough of it, my haul doesn’t end that day. I asked my older sister to buy a pair of lipstick from The Body Shop today. We will just split the bill. Practical right? 🙂 She get 63 sunset peach shade for me which is nearly orange- as I want it to be. But the sad thing is, she didn’t brought my membership card 😦
Starting now, just like my college classmate, I will look forward for the upcoming sale and promos of The Body Shop stores. It is really worth it! Who doesn’t want sale anyways?
How about you sweeties? What is your make up brand? What store do you wish to have its sale soon? Share it with me, and let’s have an exchange of thoughts.
