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

‘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.

Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask is made with their unique Bio Aqua Crystal Technology. This technology forms a protective shield over the hydrating ingredients to prevent moisture loss before application. Upon application, this shield breaks away and big aqua droplets are formed. This ensures our skin gets hydrated with the freshest and most optimal amount of hydrating activity. The big aqua droplets are made up of superior hydrating ingredients of small molecular sizes which allow moisture and nutrients to be easily delivered to the deepest layers of skin, while the protective emollient film remains on the skin to lock in moisture for non-stop hydration.

<Seeee!! Water droplet form>

This is actually my second time using this mask! Still remember the first time when I’m introduced this sleeping mask, I’m totally blown off!! It’s so amazing seeing the gel becomes water droplet!!! I actually apply it again and again just to see it transform! LOL.. This is definitely a fun way to keep your skin hydrated and nourished!

If you didn’t know, hydrated skin will absorb “essence” better and will cause less problem.. For my case, if I have hydrated skin, my freckles may be lessen and I might be able to use whitening products more often (whitening product are drying to skin).. 😦

Absorption is pretty fast and it’s not oily at all.. I mean, is water even oily?? No right~? Skin feels smooth after application and not sticky at all.. Aww.. ❤

Suppleness? I think it’s pretty okay! However it doesn’t seems to be as amazing as the time when I first used them.. maybe I got used to it?? I don’t know… (?_?)
