From Rustan's yesterday.
the 3-Step Skin Care set - Limited Edition:
Blair's (of youtube) rave about this set got into me! It's very timing since I ran out of stuff my derma prescribed to me and comparing the prices, Clinique's way cheaper than the total maintenance set I used to buy from my derma. A 100ml PCA toner from her clinic will cost me at least 3k already! Yep, it's that expensive! That's why on my 2nd and 3rd bottle, I bought it through a multiply seller who accepts orders from any reputable US websites, and I got the same toner for Php1,800/bottle. My derma's price is a total rip-off I know, but I still love my cute dermatologist, Dra Theresa Pascual of Medical City, i just hope she won't get to read this haha.
Anyway, this set is a limited edition (this two killer words make me buy everything! grr), contains a travel set and a really huge toner, it's almost half a litre, a 200ml liquid soap and a big bottle of DDMG! Just look at the size comparison below so you'll have an idea how huge the toner is! And I love too that it comes with a pump so I don't need to tilt the bottle!

The pump, just put the cotton here and well, pump LOL
I know it's too early to tell, but this set + the clarisonic is total love!
Yesterday morning, I have 3 small bumps on my face (because of aztec healing clay, argh!), and now, it's almost flat! I just use the set last night and this morning! Yey!
I know the moisturizer from this set, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, has a cult following but I thought it was kind of overrated. Well, I was wrong! This moisturizer is truly amazing and it dries fast, love it!
Although the Clinique SA said that this will last me for at least 8 months, I kinda doubt her haha, I'm giving this set 5 to 6 months top. If I'll have an extra moolah in two weeks time, I'm planning to buy another set as a backup (so my next buy would be on next year's holiday set haha).
Btw, from the consultation done before purchasing this set, I'm a number 3 (isn't it obvious Sol, it's written all over the pics LOL). Before the consultation, I really thought I was going to be number 4 since I'm really oily but the SA said that number 4 is for extremely oily peeps! So there!
Again, I love this set! If you're already a Clinique user, this is really a good time to stock up! This set sells for $59.00 in the US, plus tax and shipping, Rustan's price I think is fair enough at Php4,500/set. And think about it, for a six-month use, it will just cost you Php750 a month! Whoa!
And oh, about the freebies (sample foundation and 2 mini tubes of pore minimizer), I'm not supposed to get these as the holiday set already has a free travel size, but being persistent really works + charm hahahaha!
