Sebamed Everyday Shampoo pH5.5

Hello everyone, it’s product review time again. Getting a good shampoo for your hair and scalp can be difficult. Recently, a famous Korean beauty show “Get It Beauty” has point out that¬†many people buy hair products especially shampoo and hair conditioner in bulk or large sizes to save money.¬†Then, they will use that product until it‚Äôs gone, not conscious of their hair‚Äôs current condition. This situation can be very bad for the hair and scalp. Another problem is¬†no matter how well you treat your hair and give it the best products, it just doesn‚Äôt completely get better, right? The main concern for this issue is¬†Scalp Care. It seems that most people don‚Äôt give a second thought to their scalp.¬†In reality, a healthy scalp leads to strong, healthy hair!

In the mist of searching a good shampoo for myself, I came across this hair product from Sebamed which is Everyday Shampoo for normal to dry hair and scalp.

Ingredients list as show on the packaging. 

Reviews: Overall, I will say it’s a good product for sensitive or easily irritated or inflamed scalp due to the pH 5.5 value that’s ideal for healthy skin. It’s very mild and calm. On my point of views, I’m not to say flavoring it much but also not to say disliking it. The reasons for it might be I’m use to it (or maybe prefer) a shampoo that can provide me enough amounts of lather for my hair. This hair shampoo to me is like can’t even produce lather due to the soap-free properties. So, it then cause my hair to be a little tangle up during the washing and then causing a little hair fall (because I end up suing energy to detangle it). I’ll always end up using hair conditioner for every hair wash. The results of this shampoo is clean and fresh. I wouldn’t say it give my hair the silky smooth feeling. However, this soap is definitely suitable for everyday using.

If you are looking for a shampoo for kids then maybe you can try this hair shampoo because it’s really mild and soap-free with pH balance. If your skin is sensitive then I’ll say it’s a good products for you. And, if you don’t mind of the amounts that lather forms then you probably can try it out.

Will I repurchase? No, if only I have no choice. If you are interested to try, you may buy this product from any of the drugstore or Amazon for US$9.05.

Hope you enjoy reading my post.

Bior√© UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA++++

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. If you are a beauty junkies, you probably already know the fact that Asia countries produce the best sunscreen. Anyone who has tried Asian sunscreen, they will know it works much more better! Asian sunscreens tend to be lighter, more fluid, and dry more matte on the skin. They’re often hydro-alcoholic formulas, which means they use water and alcohol to lighten up the texture and increase the drying speed.

It‚Äôs important to remember that while we may love the outdoors, going to the beach and how we look with a tan, there are serious consequences when we get too much sun exposure. Overexposure to the sun breaks down your skin‚Äôs natural collagen scaffolding and damages skin at a cellular level, leading to photo-aging, sun spots, and in some cases, even cancer. This makes sunscreen an important item to protect our skin. Here’s a tips to you:¬†Sunscreen : You Need to Know.

Cut the story short and let’s begin with the review.

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA+++

Non sticky and non greasy, it is so comfortable for everyday use!

Scents: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen has a light, pleasant, citrus scent that dissipates quickly after application.

Formulation: It comes out as a white lotion and upon application it turn to very cool and watery essence. The texture is very lightweight. Once it is spread, it dries out quickly. The finish give you a clear and natural matte finish look (not oily at all).

Ingredient list:
ingredients

Do not use if: You are sensitive to alcohol, silicone, chemical UV filters, citrus fruit extracts, or anything else in the ingredients list.

Results: The results is, I really love it!!!¬†Before trying this product, I only use sunscreen if I’m gonna use face powder to avoid the sticky and oily feeling. I have oily T-zone, so I really doesn’t like any product that give me extra shine. But now, it’s a total change. I use sunscreen every time when I’m leaving the house (now I can have a better protection for my skin). It doesn’t give me any irritation or breakouts although it contains alcohol. This sunscreen can be the best sunscreen that I have ever used. Upon first trial, I immediately have to purchase it. It dries and absorbs faster than any other sunscreen. I can tell that your skin will feel nothing at all. Using alcohol as one of the ingredients, I’m also worrying of my skin will be drying. However, it’s really no need for that worry. My skin works fine even only using this sunscreen without a toner. If your skin are very dry (and sensitive), then I’ll recommend you at least use a moisturizer as a base. If I’m in a rush to leave the house, my only products now is this ¬†Bior√© UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA++++.

Price:¬†The price to me is very reasonable, where can you get such a good sunscreen with SPF50+ PA++++ for less than RM50. I bought mine at local SaSa Cosmetics shop for RM35.95. Hermo are selling this product at RM30.70 (you gotta be fast, cause it’s always sold out) while Amazon¬†are selling this at US$8.23.

Will I repurchase? Yes, I definitely will. I rate this product for 5 out of 5.

Hope you enjoy reading my post. * Wanna know what sunscreen I use for my body? Read this!!!

Reviews

piolang_24k-gold-mask_main1_2

fullsizerender-1

Packaging: The packaging is simple and classic with the color of black and gold. The Egyptian logo give the packaging a more luxurious feeling. It comes with a small plastic scoop for you to scoop out the mask.

fullsizerender-2

Scents: The Gold mask has a very nice fragrance scents. (I really love it)

fullsizerender-3

Formulation: The Gold mask consistency is think (like soaked oats/chia seed). I applied it on my face with a brush (which is more easier compared to the scoop that provided). Due to the think consistency, it takes around 15-20 minutes to dry completely for a thin layer. Although the consistency is think, it’s still runny thus the application is easy. Once it’s completely dry, just rubbing off a little on the side and then you can peel every thing out of your face. (A few practice will be needed for a professionals peel)

Results: I’m actually quite worrying to try out a wrapping/peel-off mask. Fortunately, this mask is non-irritating. During the application, you skin feel nothing but after a few minutes (when it started to dry) you can feel it’s getting tighter and tighter. After the gold mask, I can immediate notice my skin becoming more radiant and glow. It doesn’t cause any dryness to my skin. For skin tone effect, this gold mask do really does it job. To remove blackheads as it claims, I didn’t really notice about it (no any changes). For hydration, I can see my face is not drying. It does provides moisture to my skin but is not as the picture shown (not as moisture as a sheet mask). Overall, I do like this mask.

img_4324

Will I repurchase? Yes, I will. I would love to use this mask twice a weeks to boost my skin radiance.

Wanna try the Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask, buy yourself an expensive and luxurious face mask at Althea Korea for Rm69 or at Amazon for US$30.89.

A Complete Guide to Mascara Wands & Their Benefits

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Hope everyone of you have a nice day ahead. ūüôā Are you guys just like me?¬†Any shape of the mascara wands doesn’t matter¬†for me,¬†as long as it’s a mascara that I can apply on my eye lashes. But, there is just too many types of mascara in the market!

There was a time when the shape of your mascara wand didn‚Äôt mean a thing. Straight and narrow, that was the way. Now we‚Äôre seeing spoolie shapes that feature curves and cones, spikes, push-up wings, and even cup-shaped bristles‚ÄĒeach of which delivers a unique lash effect from curling and volumizing, to lengthening, multiplying and even clumping, if that‚Äôs what you‚Äôre into.

I read an article from Makeup.com and is all about types of mascara. That article has given me a very useful tips that I would like to share.

So, if you’re re-thinking your mascara choices, read on to see if you’re using the right wand for the lashes of your dreams.

A new trend in town, Twiggy-esque spider lashes has been making regular appearance on runways, social feeds, and celeb’s faces. If serious drama is your cup of tea, the Spider Spike Brush works to sweep on the bold volume and maximum length, while the tapered tips is used for applying mascara to your corners.

Mega volume. Mega plush. That’s what we like to hear when someone ¬†is describing your eyelashes. And with a Flexor Brush this full and plump, you can expect every single lash to be coated with mascara for mega volume, thickness and body. BOOM!!!

The winged lashes, look for a winged wand! The exclusive “Push Up” winged brush sweep lashes to thee side, while lifting and plumping from thee roots for a voluminous, winged arch. So, you can bat your lashes without worrying about your falsies¬†coming off.

Doll-like lashes without a lash curler – is it really possible? The custom C-curl brush lifts each lash for the perfect curl and thickness without the perpetual worry of pinching off your lashes.

Sometimes a gal ¬†just wanted a well-defined lashes with zero-clumps. For natural long-looking lashes, this “Wiper” brush deliver the perfect amount of formula to each lash without clumps, bumps or undesirable lumps!

And on and opposite note, sometimes you just want to unleash chaotic, clumpy lashes when the occasions call for it. A teaser brush such as this one has the same effect on your lashes as a testing brush for your hair. we mean BIG volume, plump, purposefully unorganized lashes. Call us a hot mess. We’ll take it as a compliment.

Uhm, who doesn’t want lots and lots (and lots) of lashes? The unique, heart-shaped brush reached each and every lashes to multiply impact. Get ready for those “WOW, are those your real lashes?” comments.

This spoolie does for your lashes what stilettos does for your legs – elongates! The Grip & Extended Brush grasps each lash and extend for every angle for 70% longer looking lashes. Well we’ll continue to wish for longer legs, lashes will also do.

Which wand work best for your lashes needs?

Share your favorite mascara and spoolie shape in the comments below! I’ll go for a try too!!!

Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I’ll be sharing¬†Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion. I get this product as a free gift from the FEMALE Magazine October issue.¬†*Although I get this lotion as a free gift, but all opinion are based on me.

img_4290

Do you know that even when you try to protect skin by staying in the shade, you may still be exposed to up to half of the sun’s UV rays. That is why you need a daily lotion with SPF.¬†Finding a right day lotion with SPF is not an easy job, I have tried a few and it’s disappointing. But let me tell you, this¬†Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion¬†is different!

vaseline-1

This Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion is enriched with micro droplets of Vaseline Jelly that has been perfected for the past 146years, Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ helps restore damaged skin from deep within to reveal fairer skin. Not only this, it is specially formulated with SPF24 PA++ to give all protection even under harsh sun against UVA,UVA1, UVA2, UVB  rays that cause skin darkening and damage. It also contains Vitamin B3 that actively help lighten your skin, to reveal fairer, healthier-looking skin overtime.

vaseline

Before I try Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion, I hate using any sunblock or lotion during the day to protect my skin. I hate the strong smell of sunblock whereby everyone that near me then to get the scents too. Besides, I always need to be travel around. Using a body lotion gives me a greasy feeling especially after I sweat. So, I always choose to not use any and thinking that walk or hide under a shade will keep me safe from the sun. However, this is wrong!!! The shade only protects your skin from the direct rays of the sun, but UV rays are reflected off various surface – such as sidewalks, pavements, and sand. Even under the shade your skin may be exposed to up to 50% of the sun’s UV rays, leading to darkening and damage.

I started to use the Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion at the end of September until now (almost two weeks). I really love how the finishing results can give to me.

Review

Packaging: The packaging is very simple. It comes in a plastic milky pink bottle with an open-close lid. The one I got is in 100ml, a travel-friendly size that I can carry in my bag. Do not need to worry about the products leakage, because the lid is strong enough to hold the lotion.

img_4285

Some information are attached at the back of the bottle.

Ingredients: WATER, ETHYLHEXYL SALICYLATE, GLYCERIN, STEARIC ACID, PHENYLBENZIMIDAZOLE SULFONIC ACID, GLYCOL STEARATE (AND) STEARAMIDE AMP, PEG-100 STEARATE, BUTYL METHOXYDIBENZOYLMETHANE, DIMETHICONE, OCTOCRYLENE, PHENOXYETHANOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE, POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, CARBOMER, CETYL ALCOHOL, PETROLATUM, NIACINAMIDE, XANTHAN GUM, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, DISODIUM EDTA, BHT, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, SODIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, PERFUME, BENZYL SALICYLATE, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, CITRONELLOL, GERNIOL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LIMONENE, LINALOOL.

How to use: Use twice a day for best results. Apply thoroughly to avoid product rubbing off on clothes. I’ll suggest to apply the lotion at least 30 minutes before you leave the house. This is to ensure that the product is fully absorbs into the skin. A pea size amount is enough for one hand.

Scents: It has a very light flowery scents. The scents is not too strong, but can stays for a couple of hours.

Formulation: The lotion is in white color but do not need to worry for it to be transfer on your clothes. It’s very lightweight and the consistency of the lotion is just nice. So, it can absorbed into the skin really quick. I really love the non-greasy and non-sticky feeling that this lotion leaves on my skin. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft all-day. It also not like any night-time lotion that leaves you a slippery layer. Since the products only stated to restore and protect skin fairness, so I do not expected for any lightening to happen on my skin tone. *There ¬†is another Vaseline SPF lightening lotion, for those who is expected for a skin tone lightening you may try that out.¬†

PROS:

  • Non sticky, non greasy
  • Gets absorbed in the skin quickly
  • Comes with SPF 24, PA++ and Vitamin B3
  • Travel friendly
  • Affordable

CONS:

  • Not waterproof
  • No ‚Äėskin lightening‚Äô process

Will I repurchase? Yes, I will. I like how it can protect my skin under the hot sun without giving me any uneasiness.

Wanna try the Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion, buy yourself a FEMALE Magazine October issue for first try. If you really like it after a try, get this product at any drugstore like Watsons and Guardian.
