JOHN FRIEDA

This advanced formula addresses the way brunette colour fades on three colour dimensions. With daily use it helps lock in rich, glossy colour and multi-dimensional tones. Formulated with crushed pearls and sweet almond oil, this moisturising formula protects and preserves brunette colour as it rehydrates and replenishes dry hair. Suitable for all shades of colour-treated brunette hair.

This shampoo lathers up very quickly! Not sure whether it has enhanced my brunette colour hair but I still enjoy shampooing my hair John Frieda as it not only smells great, my hair feels smoother too!

L’Oréal EXTRAORDINARY OIL

NylonVT_Loreal

Japan’s #1 Hair Treatment – Extraordinary Oil is the ultimate miracle hair oil treatment. 1 Miracle Drop, 6 Extraordinary Benefits- Nourish, Soften, Smoothen, Shine, Proetct, Strengthen. Hair is luxuriously nourished and richly protected, leaving it sumptuously smooth and brilliantly shiny with an ultra lightweight non-greasy finish. Hair color is protected against fading with exceptional nourishment.

Now with additional UV Filter – who says hair doesn’t need sunblock!! Without sun protection, you’re putting your hair at risk for faded color due to oxidation, lack of moisture, and overall distress! These short-term effects make strands look and feel dull and dehydrated, but the longer-term problem is premature hair aging (eg: hair lost – remember how thick your ponytail used to be??))!!

Distribute 2-3 pumps onto palm and apply:
1. Before shampoo and conditioner to restore, nourish and prep hair for washing
2. On towel dry/ dry hair (before blow drying) to protect hair
3. Throughout the day for continuous nourishment and shine

FOLLIZIN The Cleanser (50ml)  & FOLLIZIN The Moisturiser (50ml)

The 2 common surfactants found in shampoos – SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate ) and SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) are known to be harmful to the follicle and scalp skin. L SLES dissolves the natural oils on your skin and can denature skin proteins which not only causes irritation, but also allows environmental contaminants easier access to the lower sensitive layers of the skin. Another lesser known fact is that SLES is a direct cause of dry fuzzy and split hairs. As SLES is also absorbed into the body through the skin, it can mimic the activity of the hormone OESTROGEN in our body 2thereby contributing to hormonal imbalance which is today’s major cause of Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss.

Both Cleanser and Moisturizer are gentle yet thorough cleanser formulated for all scalp and hair types. . SLES, SLS and PARABENS FREE!

The thing that’s special about  this shampoo is that they uses:

SuGENE Technology – Breakthrough plant genetics technology that has an appropriate degree of maintaining moisture balance on both the scalp and hair through hygroscopic action. It also acts as a natural preservative.

Rose Oil – a natural astringent that protects the scalp and hair from losing moisture, it is also ideal for irritated skin. Rich in trans-retinol acids which are important for the skin’s collagen production. Provides for more elasticity and natural smoothness for both the scalp and hair.

BED HEAD TIGI HARD HEAD

Be Bold and get spiked up! Dries quickly… defies gravity. You don’t have to have a Mohawk just a serious desire for your hair to stay put!

This lil hair spray here has 5 stars support factor! Super strong hold and firm, hold spiky styles and dries quickly! Suitable for short to medium hair..

Ingredient:

  • Mica – Shine, light reflects off hair
  • Octylacrylamide Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl
  • Methacrylate Copolymer – Mega hold without weight or extreme stiffness with gloss, helps to protect hair from fading & sun damage
  • Sorbitol – Gloss & moisture retention, so hair won’t dry out

I’m getting my friend to try this out!! If it’s good, I’ll let u know!!!

Now that hair is covered, let’s head over to body care!!

ADIDAS CLIMACOOL ANTI-PERSPIRANT

A unique formula featuring advanced fresh capsule technology activated by movement so that the harder you go the better it works. Anti-white marks.

If you’ve been working up a sweat lately, you know that nothing feels as great as that post-workout high. But unfortunately, that glow also has a price… which is your very own custom, post-workout “fragrance”. The answer to feeling (and smelling) fresh even after a killer spin class is an anti-perspirant deodorant that works just as hard as you do – like the athlete-tested Adidas Climacool Anti-Perspirant Spray. The advanced capsules in its formula aren’t just citrus-scented, they’re also activated by friction, sweat and humidity. When you move, the capsules break, releasing a burst of freshness so that the harder you work, the better this next-level deodorant performs. Perfect for chatting up that cute guy at the water station after your workout! – See more at: http://www.cleo.com.sg/body-awards-2015/best-long-lasting-deodorant-adidas-climacool-anti-perspirant-spray-her#sthash.FICKC76N.dpuf

ASTALIFT MOISTURE FOAM – This creamy moisture foam contains anti-oxidants – Astaxanthin and Lycopene – and hydro-soluble collagen leaving your skin fresh, radiant and luminous always. Key ingredients are Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Collagen, Damask Rose, Shea Butter & Jojoba Seed Oil!

‘ASTA’ in Japanese means tomorrow and ‘LIFT’ refers to the uplift of one’s inner emotions as beauty shines through. The result is a meaningful brand promise that offers renewed skin.

Created by FUJIFILM, ASTALIFT is an award-winning brand that offers carefully-researched skincare and supplement products with proven efficacy.

Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.

What’s more, Collagen – an important structural protein in human skin – is also the key ingredient for photographic film. FUJIFILM, harnessing its nearly 80 years of collagen research, has effectively channeled this area of expertise to ASTALIFT’s products.

FUJIFILM has also applied its proprietary knowledge of nanotechnology – for exposing and colour developing in film – to allow high concentrations of ultra-fine skin-nourishing ingredients to be delivered effectively and deeply to targeted levels of the skin, while preserving their efficacy. FUJIFILM’s strengths in image analysing technologies – gleaned from our vast experience in the photographic and medical fields – have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.

Inspired by skin cell research. Powered by proprietary nano technology.

It’s pretty easy to spread and I  absolutely LOVEEEE the srcub in this mask! It’s like forever not going to dissolve and I can just go on & on & on scrubbing..

I applied a thin layer on my face and probably less than 5 mins, it’s dry and I can feel the skin tightening! I washed of with luke warm water after that and my skin feels clean and soft! Blackhead weren’t all gone but I was able to remove quite plentiful.. 🙂

Hada Labo Whitening Perfect Gel

It’s been so HOT recently! BIG SUN~ NO RAIN~ I remember reading from somewhere about MRT breaking down more often than it rains in Singapore! Man~ with this kinda weather, I’m really not motivated to step out of the house.. I don’t want more freckles or even duller skin.

But good thing is that I know I will have a good treat when I reached home after a day of “sun tanning” outside!!

20140303-150410.jpg

Yup! It’s Hada Labo Whitening Perfect Gel!! Very interesting product I swear!!

Hada Labo launches the NEW 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel for fair, bright and bouncy skin! Fast absorbing and non-oily in texture, this whitening gel boosts 3-in-1 skincare product benefits of Essence + Moisturiser + Paper Mask!

Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel contains 3 trinity efficacious ingredients that penetrate within and work on the skin synergistically:

  • Natural Arbutin: High concentration levels at 3% of Japanese pharmaceutical-level Arbutin to offer effective whitening results. Enhances skin fairness and targets dark spots.

Fair, Bright and Bouncy skin from within with Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel.

Hada Labo Label

I used to use Dr.Ci:Labo moisturizer which is also a 5-in-1 product and I love it! It helps save my morning time and it’s really moisturizing! Although this product is only 3-in-1 BUT(!) it can be used as a SLEEPING MASK is a BIG wow factor to me already!

Hada Labo 1  Hada Labo 2

I’ve always like gel-like product. They’re less oily and feels very lightweight! This is totally what I get from Hada Labo Whitening Perfect Gel!

Light-wieght, non-oily, & it’s can be absorbed fast!

Overall, I think this is a product worth getting! Love that it can be used as a moisturizer in the day and sleeping mask at night!! Because it get absorbs fast, I have no problem going to sleep with it as my sleeping mask! After a good night rest with my sleeping mask, my skin feel supple and refresh the next day!!

Been almost 3 weeks since I used this gel and I can feel my skin is less dry now. As for lighten dark spots, erm.. maybe I need to used it for a longer period.. you get what I mean~ LOL..

Do it correctly and you will have less visible freckles! How? Instead of swipe them across your face, dap them on spotted area…!

20120913-225747.jpg

20120913-225847.jpg

now this pic, i applied on my whole hand. Seems fairer but.. may be due to lighting!

20120913-225903.jpg

20120913-225910.jpg
