Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the adorable cat without a mouth, Guardian is selling a range of special Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary merchandise consisting of travel-friendly pouches and body care products. I was alerted to the range thanks to Street Love, who bought the manicure set and posted it on Facebook.

Trust me, I had a really hard time trying to choose which ones to get, but in the end settled for two that called out to me the most: Hello Kitty cosmetic bag set and Hello Kitty vanity bag set. I just couldn't resist the adorable Hello Kitty head cosmetic bag, and the rectangular vanity bag with Hello Kitty print was just too pretty to pass up (plus it matched another, smaller Hello Kitty vanity bag I have).

Love how the items are individually wrapped! :)
First, the Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary cosmetic bag set (RM 31.90). The bag is made from PU leather material, while the red bow is velvet. The tag provides the information and ingredients list of the body wash, body lotion and body scrub included in the set.

The set includes a body wash (50ml), body lotion (50ml) and body scrub (50ml). The packaging in Hello Kitty's signature colours [red, white, and black outlines] is super cute, not to mention the body products smell really nice too. I can't put my finger on the exact scent, but it reminds me of apples; a very fresh and slightly sweet fragrance. The little plastic tub that contains the body scrub can be re-used after I've finished it, but can't say the same for the squeezy tubes, which is a shame. (⌒_⌒;)

Next, the Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary vanity bag set (RM 32.90). Like the cosmetic bag, this one is also made from PU leather, with the 40th anniversary Hello Kitty logo printed all over. It's larger than the cosmetic bag, and has a handle at the top to carry it around.

Super love the kawaii Hello Kitty print!
Similar to the cosmetic bag set, this set also includes a body wash and body lotion, but in a larger 100ml size. Instead of the body scrub, the vanity bag set includes a Hello Kitty loofah/bath lily. I do use bath lilies, but this one is probably too cute to use, haha! (๑>◡<๑)

There are several other sets, which are available at Guardian pharmacies and online from the Guardian e-store. Many of the bag sets are already sold out at their stores, so if you want to grab them without the hassle of running around, I suggest you purchase them online.

I'll definitely be getting of these for my Hello Kitty addict of a friend. haha. I remember her making me buy a happy meal for her so that she'll get the toy and because she was too shy. ^^;

I was actually really glad that you said the scent was more apple. For some reason, I'd be quite disappointed if it was strawberry because Hello Kitty is so fresh and refreshing, it has to be apple! haha ^^

OMG o.O

I want the bags and not the cosmetics! Can you provide dimensions for the cosmetic bag? I'd like to know big it is before I go on a hunt. Hahaha!

LauraLeia said...

Rin: Yes, these will make perfect gifts for Hello Kitty-obsessed friends! :D I'm also glad it's not a generic strawberry scent, because I don't really like strawberry-scented body products, haha~ Apple is definitely a good pick!

Blair: I also got them more for the bag itself than the body products! XD
The cosmetic bag (kitty head) is approx L17.5 x H14 x W6 cm, while the vanity bag is approx L22 x H10 x W14 cm. :) Fairly big, considering the price compared to Sanrio products in departmental stores.

Street Love said...

Nice haul! Besides the manicure kit that I bought, I wanted to get these two set as well but my mum was beside me and she go "do you need it" lol. In the end I only get what I want :D

LauraLeia said...

Mizu: IKR! Guardian should pay me some commission for helping to promote and increase their Hello Kitty product sales, lol!

Rane: Go buy before they're sold out! I'm sure you (and your girls) will love them. :D

Shayne: Haha not really; I'm not much for pouches but I can't resist cute + Hello Kitty. XD I actually still prefer calling them loofahs just because they sound weirder, lol

Street Love: I wanted to get the manicure set at first, but then I took a look at all the items at the stand and was like OMG I NEED THOSE KITTY BAGS. Luckily my mum doesn't disapprove of me buying these stuff because she knows I love Hello Kitty (she even chipped in a bit for me to buy both, haha <3)

Adorable haul!
Are you as excited as I am about the Sephora X Hello Kitty collection that is coming out this month?!
I hope we get it here.

The Hello Kitty print on the vanity bag is very pretty! I wish I could get one too. :)

The HK head bag looks so adorable! I remember last year in Japan, there were the 40th anniversary plates that you could only get if you collected dozens and dozens of stickers from certain snacks, me and my friends were eating Hello Kitty pastry everyday so that I could get the plate. =D
