I was reading online flyers on Friday morning – as you do! – and I came across this:
Shiseido gift with purchase (gwp) with $43 spend! I’ve been itching to replenish some Shiseido skincare so I hopped over to the counter at Hudson’s Bay on Queen Street.
And again, this will be the world’s many boring “haul” because I purchased one thing:
Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream
I like how Shiseido has a safety seal on their skincare, and they offer a little scoop.
I’ve talked a lot about this eye cream – it’s my HG nighttime eye cream! I’m now gearing up for the colder months and I can’t imaging going through a Canadian winter season without this. *hugs jar* It’s pricey (C$68) but this jar will last me at least a couple of years.
Now the fun part, the gwp!
Hey, they can hire me to do their gwp promotion photo next time!
• Benefiance extra Creamy Cleansing Foam
• Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol express Smoothing Eye Mask (1 pair)
• Bio-Performance LiftDynamic Eye Treatment
• supreme Power Infusing Concentrate
• Rouge Rouge Lipstick RD501 Ruby Copper
What I love about this particular gwp is that it includes some tried and true Shiseido products: I love that cleansing foam, and the eye mask is a guilty pleasure of mine. but it also includes new products that I’ve been wanting to try, like the serum and the Rouge Rouge lipstick!! have you seen Temptalia’s post on the lipsticks? That post made me want to run out and purchase all of them! The shade in the gwp wouldn’t have been my first choice, here’s what Ruby Copper looks like as per Temptalia:
Source. Temptalia describes this shade as “bright, medium-dark ruby red with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen”.
But I’m thrilled to give the formula a try. My picks from the Rouge Rouge Lipsticks are: RD715 rose Crush, RD716 Red Queen (check out this review post from charm Isles), and RD306 Liaison.
And how pretty is the pouch? It has a light pink lining with a grey outer layer in a laser cut design, and a wrist strap. It’s a keeper, for sure. The Shiseido gwp at Hudson’s Bay started Sept 7th and runs until the 18th, while supplies lasts (although, I’ve not known Shiseido gwp to run out… Clinique, that’s a whole other story!)
I’m patting myself on the back for sticking to my guns and only purchasing ONE item and only skincare. The Rouge Rouge lipsticks were calling out to me but they will have to wait…
Do you only shop for makeup during gwp time? I know people who only purchase during gwp, which makes a lot of sense… and takes a lot of self control!

Road trip skincare and makeup bagStarting this Friday, I’ll be on a road trip! We’ll be heading to northern parts of our province, also known as “cottage country” (don’t let the word “cottage” trick you, they have multi-million dollar homes that are owned by Hollywood celebs), and then heading to Ottawa. We’ll be staying mostly…

Shiseido skincare reviewsFirst, let me insert my typical disclaimer here that I’m no expert on skincare – I’m just a skincare enthusiast. I’m also by no implies a guru on all things Shiseido – there are just my experiences with these products. I’ve been using skincare from this brand starting about 5 years…

Shiseido Benefiance instant treatment Eye MaskShiseido Benefiance instant treatment Eye Mask ($72 for 12 pairs) is something I’ve been curious about for a while because it has great reviews online. They’re expensive, at $6 per treatment, so I’ve resisted purchasing them. One day, my co-worker (the one who gave me all the freebies) concerned work and handed…
