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

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.

Vardi & Migdal

This is probably the most expensive sea salt/skin care I had ever bought!! If you think SKII is expensive, I tell you, this cost more. T_T If not for the promo, I think we would never had bought anything~!

IMG_3576

 

I’m sure most of you  know this – we should at least exfoliate our skin (face and/or body) once a week.. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cell and better absorption of whatever we apply after that. If you want smooth soft skin, then you should exfoliate!

Vardi & Migdal uses finely grinded Dead Sea salts. The salt serves to softly exfoliate and reduce the build up of keratin (dead skin cells) that can clog pores and prevent the skin from growing in a healthy manner. It leaves the skin fresh and instantly soft while helping stimulate cellular renewal. Use to nourish, soften and condition even the driest hands and feet, leaving them velvety-soft and smooth. Gentle and revitalizing this spa scrub will increase your blood circulation and give you a relaxing aromatherapy experience.

We tried in the shop and the sales person was quite generous in the amount to sea salt they let you use to try… Initially, it feels a bit greasy when running through water to wash off the salt but when I towel dry my hand, the greasiness just *poof* gone – leaving my hand smooth and soft and smell awesome too!! We got convinced of the goodness and decided to grab one bottle! Since they’re having 1-for-1, we grabbed a body butter too! White Flower scent is really nice! If you like baby powder kinda scent, you can try White Flower!

And just before we made payment, the observant sale person  actually stopped us said he’s inspired to share this nail kit with us because he saw my dry nails (sh*t! soft spot!)!!

IMG_3547 IMG_3548

This is the nail kit I bought home that same day! And you must be thinking what’s so special.. Just a normal hand lotion, cuticle oil, buffer & file.. BUT I TELL YOU…. The buffer is the amazing one!!

This buff can really make your nails SHINE like nobody business!! This is not something new in the market. I know the Body Shop sell this kinda buff.. SaSa too! But this is the first time a guy buff for me!!! blehh.. okie, that’s not the reason! Seriously, this is the first time I see my nails soooo shiny without much effort and the sales person guarantee that the shine stay for 1 month!! I bought this for about 3 weeks already and you know what, my nails are still shiny (other then the new grown part)! I haven buff them since day 1 i bought them home.

IMG_3551

Although this image can’t really show you how shiny my nail is but feel free to walk into their store and try it! I can lie to you but the sales person can’t! Best of all, this buffer comes with 1 year (or was it 2 years) guarantee!!! Damn it! When did you ever buy a buffer that comes with guarantee! I asked the sales person, what does this guarantee covers? He said, anything! Since we only need to buff once a month with this buffer how bad can it be right??? How about if you lend your buffer to your your family/friends to buff, until your buffer is all torn & worn out? Go back to any store (bring your receipt along just in case, i think) they will replace the buffer pad for you FOC! Wow! like seriously!!!? Such good deal right!?

And with that 1-for-1 promo, I grabbed one set of nail kit another another sea salt (pear scent)!

So now we’re done, we headed to to cashier counter and paid for our products. Just when we’re leaving… we were stopped again! Now what..? they said they only need 5 mins share with us this product that will help to lighten pigmentation! Sh*t again! Another soft spot! *sign*

IMG_3544

This is the skin care that will help to lighten pigmentation! Some 24K gold peeling gel and serum! While the sales person (another lady this time), is promoting this product, I noticed another lady at one corner, machiam VIP, bought some black caviar products. Later I realized.. the product she bought is easily my two months pay…. T_T Tai-tai’s life! Back to my precious (Precieux) 24K gold!

IMG_3545 IMG_3558

 

 

We only need to use this peeling gel once a week and we will be able to see result sooon… I’m only entering my 3 week of use so result shouldn’t be that visible yet! but sure looking forward to a lighten pigmentation!

IMG_3546 IMG_3563

 

As for the serum, we’re suppose to use every night on affected areas.. I, erm.. tends to be a lil forgetful hence I only use this like 3-4 times per week..

If we use per advise (once a week for peeling gel and every night on affected areas only for serum), this product should be able to last for 3 months.. Well, all i can say is… Let’s see how it goes!!!

 

I want more~ ^_^
