I was fortunate enough to manage to receive one of the special edition bags although going through the process in the car was not that easy to manage, but all in all it was pretty satisfying moment on my end when I managed to get one in hand.

The total price range and products in the bag

As you can see, there are about 7 products in the bag totaling up to the RM866 retail price range, however with regards to the full sized products we are only counting them as 6 units as the Lierac Sensory Water Gel comes in a bonus deluxe size.

HiShop Brilliant Lipcare Set 1-3 Beauty Review

Whenever I look in the mirror and see my crack lips I always tend to wince in dismay.

Of course in our humid and hot weather, this is a common issue amongst boys and girls alike.

However for girls, we always enjoy trying on different types of lip colors - be it lipstick, lip balm- you name it but a common problem with this is that the color won't last and the skin will begin to peel.

On my end this was my unfortunate issue and even though I have tried all sorts of remedies to  keep them hydrated, my lip still remains cracked and dry.
