And finally, what has been a mystery for too long a time isn’t just who the giveaway winner is, but it also happens to be what prizes are in store for my blessed NYC giveaway winner 🙂 I’d like to congratulate CHE (firstname.lastname@example.org) for you have won these lovely beauty “pasalubong” items from New York City! I will for sure have sent you an email requesting for your shipping and contact details minutes after this post goes up. The La Roche Posay Serozinc toner spray is actually a bonus item I threw in because a friend gave me two which came not from NYC, but from Europe 😀 So I thought whoever the winner was would love that since it is also a Caroline Hirons recommendation (the Pixiwoo sisters spray it on in this video interview with skincare expert Caroline). Serozinc Zinc-Sulfate Spray toner for the face helps prevent breakouts and speed up the healing process of existing zits, it also preps the face well for moisturizer. A list of all the prizes I’ve picked is provided below.
THE PRIZES FOR THE WINNER! – First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Polish (Exfoliator), Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara Waterproof (my favorite easy-wear mascara), Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (Particularly for dark undereye circles, the shade I got was a MAC NC25-30 match, darker shades were often out of stock or tricky to spot), La Roche Posay Serozinc (Zinc Sulfate Spray Solution), Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer, Mario Badescu Fruit and Vitamin Hand cream sample, Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm primer sample.
Thanks to all you girls who joined my “Guess Where I’m Going Giveaway” last month, I was actually in New York City (see this post here) with my cousin and we met up with some friends and had a wonderful time there. Japan isn’t the only place with cherry blossoms in the springtime by the way! Cherry blossom trees were blooming in so many places in New York City especially in Central Park and West Village :). So remember if you want to see cherry blossoms in the springtime, Japan isn’t the only destination to consider :).
