What's in the package?

I got hooked on StrawberryNet for a good few weeks. What can I say? They have good range of products - skincare, makeup & fragrance. Throw in free shipping anywhere in the world (most importantly, to Malaysia tehehe), special loyalty discount, free item for new customer, and coincidentally they were giving out free Stila makeup (for winning some Bizrate online customer survey), I was instantly sold! Yes, I am a sucker for discounts and free items, who's not! 

So I made my purchase (this happened back some time mid-Aug) checked out my shopping basket, and I got the order confirmation email within a few hours. My order was dispatched on the very same day (I chose the "Free Shipping by Registered Post" option). The website mentioned :

4-6 postal working days for capital cities.
7-10 postal working days for other destinations.
10-14 postal working days for more inaccessible destinations. 

I wasn't sure if my address was listed as "capital cities" or "other destinations", but I'd give a buffer of between 4 to 10 days. I was eagerly waiting for my package to arrive, each day passed with the excitement building up.

So 4 days went by, when I got home, I found the package on my desk. *wheeee*
The items were carefully packed, let the pictures below do justice.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to name my purchase. Items I picked out:
The other 2 items from Stila are free with my purchase (1 for new customer, 1 for Bizrate customer survey).

(look at 'em details on the case, pretty, isn't it?)

Pic 4 : Benefit's Valley of the Stars kit

Pic 5: Benefit's Powder Pop! Palette

Both the Benefit items were on 50% discount at the time of purchase. If memory serves me right, the Valley of the Stars kit was retailing at USD28 (I got it at RM50 after discount) , and the Powder Pop! at USD 30 (I got it at RM53.50 after discount). I can't confirm the RPP from Benefit's website anymore, I reckon they've been discontinued, no where indicated that they were limited edition though.   

Such great bargain!!! Trust me, If you even find this over the counter, it ain't cheap, Benefit cosmetics usually retails way about RM100-ish.

Excellent service from StrawberryNet too! When I checked the custom slip on the package, it actually arrived at my district post office just 2 days the package left Hong Kong. How about that! No hassle, no complaints. Now, that is just my experience, I've read some unsatisfactory reviews on the services, but it isn't so bad.  

Will I continue to purchase from StrawberryNet? Absolutely. But of course, I won't make purchases on whim, what I'll usually do is if I have an eye on a particular product, I'd just pop by the counter and test the products out first. Sign up for for their mail updates, they have great sales & savings every other month. With the year-end and Christmas creeping up, am sure you'll stumble on few good bargains *wink*

P/S : After re-reading this post, it sounded like I am paid for the write-up, but NO. This is solely base on my experience and my satisfaction :)
