Detox water is great for health and beauty. It’s healthy and organic. However, there is also people commenting that detox water is not recommend for everyone. Sometimes, it’s really confusing even for me. While it is possible to get it wrong, as long as you get it right you’ll be helping yourself in several different ways. There’s lot of benefits about detox water that you can search, for example, boosting your energy, helps weight loss, stronger immune systems, improved skin condition and a lot more.

Today, I’m not gonna share about the benefits of detox water with you guys. All the benefits you may search and read through it online.

I hope you all will spend a little times and try it out too.

Preparations and Tips

Each ingredients in the detox water will have different benefits. The preparation is also very easy. First, wash and clean the ingredients nicely then cut it into smaller pieces (some ingredients you may cut into a cube sizes). Second, prepare a glass bottle or jar with drinking water in it. After that, put in all the ingredients that have prepared earlier into the glass bottle or jar. Now, chill the detox water by placing it into the refrigerator for 8 hours. After 8 hours, all you do is enjoy and drink it up. 🙂 All the detox water are prepared using this method. The amount of ingredients can be varies according to your personal favor. Here’s a few things to remember:

  1. Detox water is for health and beauty, so please don’t add any sugar into it.
  2. The bottle or jar must be seal and air tight. If not no matter how long you take to soak the ingredients, it will still be tasteless.
  3. Please use glass bottle or jar. This is because acidic ingredients like lemon, lime or orange will caused the plastic materials to produce toxic.
  4. The smaller the sizes of the ingredients, the better the detox water will taste.
  5. The ingredients must be washed clean. The detox water must be finishing up between two days since it is prepared without any preservative.
  6. The detox water must be soaked at least 8 hours. The preparation can be done a day before and chill it in the fridge, enjoy it the nest day.

L’Occitane Aromachology Volumizing Mist

Hello everyone, today I wanna share a hair mist that I love the most. It’s the L’Occitane Aromachology Volumizing Mist. I have try a few new hair mist but end up I still go back to this. I have been using this hair mist more than a year now.

32520_A1.tif

L’Occitane Aromachology Volumizing Mist

This hair mist is formulated with a natural complex of five essential oils (artemisia, sweet orange, mint, pine and rosemary) as well as linden extract, the Aromachologie Volumizing Mist is a leave-in formula that adds volume to the roots of your hair. The silicone-free formula will leave your hair controlled, supple, shiny and delicately perfumed.

The smell of this hair mist is just so nice, to me it has a very mild floral scent. Not like others hair mist, this hair mist is not sticky at all. It’s very watery too. This product is a water-type spray that make it very easy to use. I spray it on the roots and ends of my hair everyday. It make my hair look more healthy and less frizzy now. But one thing you have to know is, although it say is volumizing but it doesn’t mean to hold your curl or hair style. It just volumized your hair. To me I just love this hair mist so much.

Apply this product on clean hair after towel-drying or on dry hair. Spray through hair concentrating at the roots. Style your hair like usual. No need to rinse.

This product do have its own range from hair shampoo, hair condition to hair treatment too. If you like this product you may check it out from their official website.

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Love, Jess

KAO MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask

Hello everyone, today I will wanna share something interesting for you girls to try. Have you ever use or try steam eye mask before? For me, myself I have never tried it. It’s my first time and I have fall in love with it. 😍 It’s the Kao MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask. This product is very special and innovative.

image

It’s actually a Japanese brand called Kao Megrhythm. The product is made by the Kao Group from Japan, which is in the business of “prestige cosmetics, and premium skin care and hair care products; the Human Health Care Business with products that include functional health beverages and feminine and baby care products; and the Fabric and Home Care Business, which includes laundry detergents and household cleaners.” They are also in the Chemical Business. So, i’ll say that is a very reliable company. It is sold in almost all the Japanese drugstore and online on ebay as well. The price for this is very affordable. However, the description are all in Japanese but not to worry they do have worldwide website that are in English (Kao worldwide website).

Reviews 

What I can say is I really enjoy using this steam eye mask. I swear that I feel like using it everyday. The heat is just nice. It’s not hot like boiling but warm. The cotton pads is very smooth and soft to put on the eyes. The one that I have is in chamomile scent, the smell is not too strong. The aroma make you fall into sleep easily. It’s very comfortable and relaxing. The only downside is the period that the heat last is not long. The description says that the heat may last for 10 minutes. For me, it’s not long enough to enjoy the moment. I think I’ll definitely repurchase this product again. A big thumbs up for the steam eye mask.

This eye mask do have 4 different scents.

Products That is Dissapointed

Hello everyone, today I’m sharing a few products that is dissapointing me after trying it. There’s always some products that we purchased and excited to try for it but didn’t work out like what we have expected. That’s quite sad about it. So to avoid such problems happened on you, I just wanna share a few thoughts of mine for these products.

CP-1 Volume Express and Miniso True Queen Waterproof Eyeliner

  • Miniso True Queen Waterproof Eyeliner

Miniso is a Japan fast fashion brand and headquartered in Tokyo. They do have a wide range of products include household, health and beauty, food and drink, digital gifts and some seasonal products. The price is reasonable with good quality. I have purchased few things before from the Miniso store and the products functioning quite well. However, this eyeliner that I bought I’m very dissapointed about it. It’s stated that is a waterproof gel eyeliner but when I sweat the eyeliner just melts. (I just look like a panda!!!) It’s not long lasting as well. The only good things is its come with a small brush with cap. I think I’ll hardly use this eyeliner again. It’s sad.

Miniso True Queen Waterproof Eyeliner

  • CP-1 Volume Express

This volumizing hair spray do have some good review from other users. It’s used to make you hair look shinny and volumized. It contains water polymer to coats your hair, so that it looks silky and shinny. It’s a water type hair spray, you just have to spray directly to your hair or hair roots. It also says that your curls can last longer with this hair spray. However, it do not impressed me. It has a very strong chemical smells that is unpleasant to me. Besides, after using this my hair is tangled although it does make my hair look less frizzy. My fingers can’t go through my hair smoothly with this products. I purchased this in order to replace my L’Occitance Volumizing hair spray that is quite pricey but I think I’ll still stick to L’Occitance. (See my full L’Occitance hair mist review here)

This product is introduced by a Sephora sales girl to me. At that moment, I actually cleanse my face three times (you might have heard about double cleansing…but I’m doing triple cleansing!). My first steps will be micellar water, follow by this Laneige Oil-Free Cleasing Liquid, and then will be my form cleanser. (I know is not good to over cleanse your face but if I’m having heavy makeup and after a long day this will be my normal routine). Sometimes, if my makeup isn’t too heavy I’ll just skip the first step.

This cleanser is actually suitable to all skin types even sensitive skin because it’s a plant based liquid . As its stated in the bootle itself, it’s free of oil, fragrance and alcohol. It’s actually a moisturizing and hydrating liquid for soft and plump skin. It claims that it’s a mild and freshing liquid cleanser that supplies moisture and removes makeup at the same time. It contains peppermint extracts and exfoliating lemon extracts sooth the skin to leave it smooth. Dermatologic test and non-comedogenjc test proved that it hardly causes allergic reactions.

How to use
1. Pump out thrice and gently massage onto the face for about one minute to allow the makeup and impurities to melt off. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
2. The oil-free type cleanser is thorough enough for single use, but foam cleanser can be used if desired.

Ingredients
Propanediol, Water, Butylene Glycol, PEG-15 Glyceryl Isostearate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Methyl Gluceth-20, PEG-8 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Glycerin, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Primula Veris Extract, Veronica Officinalis Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Lactobacillus/Water Hyacinth Ferment, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit/Leaf Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Mannitol, Disodium EDTA, Cetrimonium Bromide

Reviews

I have finish up a bottle of this product. The price is also quite reasonable for 175ml.  This products is actually quite satisfying if you are gonna use it just for mild makeup removing like sunscreen and light base makeup. It doesn’t contain any smell and it does not sting the eyes as well. It also doesn’t cause me any breakouts. However, I will not purchase it again because it can’t removes my Stila and Urban Decay eyeliner and also some waterproof and tinted cosmetics products. I’m trying to reduces my products so that I doesn’t need to go through so my steps of cleansing and my face can still be clean and moisture. If you have any suggestion please let me know, cause it’s really difficult to find one that is really suitable while reaching my expectations.

If you are interested to buy this products, a lot of online shop such as (AltheaSephora) do sell.

Hope you enjoy reading.
