What do you guys buy in USA? We are heading there soon. Wanna have some ideas what to get for skincare. Is SKII cheaper there? I didn't look out for skincare items during my trip last year.

Oh my maccaroons, IMHO just about ...... EVERYTHING! I am still recovering from shock at how expensive things are in Singapore, after 9 months here :yikes: :sick: ! The stuff I took for granted in the USA, some cost literally an arm and a leg and possibly a first born!

When I looked at children's clothings (RL, Burberry, even everyday brands like Baby Gap, Osh Kosh, Carters etc) in Singapore, I could not breathe! Foogo thermos, Babyganics, Burt's Bees, Seventh Generation, California Baby - I fainted. Cosmetics (and the amount you have to spend for the gift with purchase...) - I fainted again. Organic things, Designers like the mid-brands Kate Spade, Coach, Tory Burch etc - Comatose :faint: !
:moneyflies: :moneyflies: :moneyflies:
