I love minis! I prefer to physically smell them so farmers or the chemist is where i usually go. The body shop has some nice ones, I also like the Lush solid perfumes.  Keep an eye out for sales especially with xmas coming up :-)

Lisa super stoked, I’ve had them every single year bc it was my sister in laws business until this year. I wrestled with the decision and ended up not buying one this year as I needed to pay for my Asia trip. Then I won one! The raffle was a fundraiser for a fantastic charity, that helps mums with post natal depression etc

I think the main thing is you wash thoroughly and dry between uses and leaving moist creates a base for nasties in this warm weather

    There's free express shipping on all orders today. So if someone wanted to get one of the new releases or stock up on something that's less than 75 and not pay for shipping today's a good day to order. 

     Or if you just want to get a gift card for a later order they have a free mini deluxe hydrating spray that comes with gift cards that are $50 or more.

    I haven't bought perfume for a really long time because I'm trying to use up what I have. But I'm picky about fragrance so I need to smell it before I want to buy it. I like small bottles because it allows you to try more fragrances so I often go for minis. I've bought some of the fragrances I have second hand off facebook pages. Smellycat is also where I've bought some of them in the past. 

    I also recommend waiting till Farmers or Life Pharmacy has a good sale to buy. I have pretty expensive tastes like YSL and DKNY so I'm willing to wait till the smaller bottles are more affordable.

I'm not much help either as I have fallen in love with a couple of perfumes at Mecca. I buy them in the roller ball size but I would love the full size bottle of a couple of them

I use the Mecca spray because a) I'm lazy but b) I still like to clean/sanitise my eyebrow spoolie and any brush I've used cream products with each time I use them. It works great.

I don't use sponges or blenders either as they are just too much hassle to clean every time.

i'm no real help coz i've been buying mine overseas for so long (obsessed with Victoria's Secret) but the last few times I've bought perfume in NZ i've opted for body shop or pure fiji... some of the prices at Life Pharmacy on sale look okay to me though, and of course with My Chemist Warehouse we now have that option finally.

I’m going to try that. Today I washed all of my brushes and blenders . I’m trying to get back in a habit of it . I ran out of brush shampoo a while ago been using a shampoo have in a shower that didn’t work on my hair well to clean my tools. I want to try baby shampoo . For a quick brush clean in between uses I normally just dip into micellar water and a wipe . Once I used a facial cleanser with hot water for a quick clean . Still worked ok .

Where are you in nz? Subscribe to the CS Factory email they have weekly perfume deals going all the time . Their having a big factory sale coming up soon . I’ve been to one before and it’s really good . I go to Chemist Warehouse for foundation and perfume all the time way cheaper . Even those Garnier banana deep conditioning treatment is in there cheaper than supermarket.

    Sadly the thing that cleans those sponges the most efficiently and quickly is actually the soap designed specifically for them. I know it's pricey but it cleans my Original BB better than any of my other brush cleansers.

     I have three atm besides my liquid blender cleanser. The other ones clean them okay but won't take out the stains and when I use them I need to wash them a few times and I like to clean my BB once I'm done my makeup so it technically should be easier than if it was sitting there and dried out on the sponge. But no it's still a bit more work when I use the other cleansers.

Hi all, I am doing an intense perfume search atm and am just wondering where you shop for the best price perfumes? The one I think most of is the Chemist Warehouse (though they do not have a NZ site which is a hindurance). Would love feedback, recommendations or experience! Hope you are having a chill and relax Sunday x

Just saw an interesting way to clean your makeup sponge get a glass put some water and liquid soap in it then put the sponge in give it a couple of squeezes so it’s sucks up some of the water and leave it in the cup put it in microwave the heat for a min and steam Surely must kill any nasties

   Okay, because online they've had deluxe minis availabe if you spent a certain ammount so just curious if they would do the same instore. On the day of the Christmas releases it was a mini mascara and currently it's a mini liquid lipstick.
