Last week, Nivea invited me along with five of the country's top fashion and beauty
bloggers to the Nivea X Forever21 Express Raid, a battle of wits, endurance and
most of all, speed. The event was held at the Forever21 SM Megamall branch at 8am. We all thought it was too early, but everybody agreed that the grand prize was enough to keep us awake and energized!
The challenge goes like this: The bloggers must
gather at least P24,000.00 worth of Forever21 items in just 60 seconds. Nivea
has also revealed a secret challenge, and that is we have to include at least
one pair of shoes to qualify for the prize. The blogger who comes up with a
loot worth P24,000.00, or gets the closest to the target amount will take home
every single thing she got. Sweet, huh?
Let the challenge begin!
After 60 seconds: Here’s me and my massive
Forever21 loot. Thank you, Espresso, for not failing me in the challenge!
Loots of Marj, Jackie, and Val.
FYI, Forever21 is currently having their End Of
Season Sale. Get an initial 50% off on selected items, and get additional 50%
off on each item when you bring them to the counter. This glamorous dress was
originally at P1500.00+, and it went down to P384.00!
With Jackie Go and Marj Sia
Here’s me, trying to conceal my nervousness as the
representatives from Forever21 compute my loot.
So who won the challenge? Jackie Go who got a
loot worth P23,000.00+! Vern and Verniece’s loots were around P18,000.00+, respectively, Marj’s was at P18,000.00+, Val’s was at P17,000.00++, while mine was at P27,000.00+. Guess I was too fast and
Indeed, Jackie was as fast and precise as Nivea's Express Hydration Lotion and Creme Soft Soap: These two products are made with the Noble Prize- winning Hydra IQ Complex that promises instant moisture in as fast as 60 seconds, and penetrates deep within the cellular level to address the root of dryness for all- day moisturization. Her win was well deserved indeed!
When you don't have enough time to shop, but you gotta come up with a fab ensemble, who you gonna call? THE EXPRESS RAIDERS! Lol! :D
Everyone's a winner after all because the challengers have received P2,000.00 worth of Forever21 GCs as consolation prize. Since I was there already, I shopped! These are the fab items I got:
Black dress with multicolor sequins. From P1,200.00+, got this for only P300.00+
Wee! I brought home the heavily sequined dress with me! :)
A breezy mint- colored top as recommended by Marj Sia. :)
A black loose top with cute tassels for my mom.
Rar! I felt strongly about this necklace and I think it will give me good luck this year, hence I bought it. :)
Shoes! I finally have a pair of chunky platforms. From P1,300.00+, I got it for only P300.00. :D
More Nivea goodies! :)
