Ascending the escalator from 1Utama’s New Wing car park, I came across 1Utama’s Beauty Fair at LG High Street which is on until this Sunday. The usual brands are represented, i.e. Kose, Kiehl’s, Himalaya Herbals, Shizens, Tanamera, The Face Shop, Skin Food, Caudalie, Covo, Laneige and many more.
However the brands that caught my eye are the handmade soaps/toiletries.
These cute soaps are retailing at RM15 each.
Choose any 3 of the square soaps for RM50 and that is seriously good value because the soaps are above RM20 individually.
