First off, I will start with the items I purchased from Priceline. Recently Priceline had a 50% off sale off Maybelline products and I tried to take that opportunity to purchase the new Dream Pure BB Cream. As I don't have the time to go in-store, and they're usually out of stock anyways, I placed an order online. If you follow me on Twitter you would already know about my mini rant and disappointment with the customer service of Priceline, and how things were dealt.
In summary the Dream Pure BB Cream was listed as in stock on their website and that was the main reason why I placed an order, along with three other items to make up for shipping costs. The next day Priceline had tweeted that the bb cream was in stock again so I was positive I would be receiving it. Two days later I received an email saying it was out of stock as well as another item AFTER my order had been despatched. I made a complaint to Priceline's Facebook AND Twitter and asked if I could cancel my order since there was no point but they were utterly useless and simply told me to call customer service. After calling them, I was told I wouldn't be able to cancel my order but I could return it HOWEVER I would not be able to receive a full refund (including shipping) because I changed my mind. Regardless, Priceline STILL had the bb cream listed as in stock at that time and the next day which is so misleading! I did not want the remaining items simply because it wasn't worth it including shipping and I could have just bought the items in store. Am I being unreasonable here?

I purchased Orange Fix for $2.97 RRP $5.95 and Stay Matte Powder for $10.36 RRP $12.95 online and shipping costs $5.95 so essentially I paid more than the full priced combined, who wouldn't be angry?

My uncle recommended me to use Mane n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner while I was overseas as he was raving about how he recommended the products to his clients who were experiencing hair loss and after using this their hair grew back. Another name for this, or what I like to call, is horse shampoo (also for humans)! I was curious as to how well it performs so I purchased this on Ebay.
And finally, for the longest time, I have wanted to try Soap and Glory products since I am always reading positive reviews on people's blog. I didn't know which products I wanted to invest in first so I opted for the Soaper Heroes Gift Set. It contains five travel sized items and my bf was nice enough to buy it for me! This retails for $34.95 and you receive Clean On Me 75ml, Flake Away 50ml, Righteous Butter 50ml, Girligo 100ml, and Hand Food 50ml.
A while back I also won a giveaway hosted by Elisa and sponsored by Dramafever. I received my prize not too long ago and I was pleasantly surprised because I forgot about it. There were two Dramafever stickers, an iPhone5 acrylic phone case for you to decorate and a guilty pleasure box filled with the decorations and M&Ms! Unfortunately I don't own an iPhone5 but I think a customised phone case would be a nice gift :)
Have you used any of these products before?
Anyways, have a lovely weekend ladies!
