Kérastase Reflection Bain Chroma Riche

I am not a fond of taking an extra care of my hair unlike my big sister, when we are both single she keeps on dragging me to get hair relax/hot oil & that's for free, haha! She always telling me, "If only I could have your hair..."

Well, all I do is shower everyday and recharge daily a conditioner. Oh, I only use shampoo every other day, so if you will see my stack of sachets and bottles, Shampoo is so left behind cause I am a conditioner addict. 

Once in a year, I go to salon for some dose of hair coloring not only for fashion but to cover up my hereditary gray hairs. I went to Bench Fix at Trinoma to get it done and too glad that the guy behind me is not too pushy to buy those product, but Abbey was persuaded to buy for me this Kerastase Reflection Bain Chrome Riche set. It consisted of Shampoo, Masque and a Leave-on. I uses the shampoo and masque every sunday only the leave-on truly I cannot leave our home without it. :)

From January till now this pacakge is my constant companion for my weekly me-time routine. Half a year of applying these three awesome product really gives my hair an istant rejuvination. My hair strands is a lot thicker even of my treatments  through. It really nourised my hair. The color really stands out in every strand. Love it!

This can be buy at salons, ask your hair consultants what is suitable Kérastase product for you. But at Fix Bench this pack costs Php5000. :)

Aesop Singapore

Thanks for Spa Esprit for bringing the pampering session set in our house. I am literally walking Aesop this day 9/7, from head to toe I am wearing their product. And I am loving it.

I woke up earlier than usual in a Monday morning to try this Aesop products. I brought in our shower the following sachets: Sage Scalp Cleansing Shampoo, Geranium Leaf Body Cleansing Gel, Geranium Leaf Body Scrub. The shampoo?, it really feels that it cleaned not only my hair but also my scalp. It took out all the unnecessary oils out of my scalp. Good point! Be sure to apply your daily conditioner to rejuvenate the moisture back in your hair. Oh, their body gel, not that bubbly but like the shampoo, it will cleanse your skin. The most lovable... their body scrub. I will surely buy this one. The scrubs has this fine particles that will exfoliates the smallest pore your you ever have. Haha!

After that bathroom session for 30mins, this is time to dry up and try the Rejuvenate Aromatique Body Balm,  Sage and Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream, and Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm. What is different of body balm and lotions? Balm is more concentrated and more effective to moisturize for the people who have that extra dry skins. And yes, my skin just sipped the body balm, my skin absored them all, and don't leave my skin a sticky feeling that other lotions do to our body. The facial cream, it really penetrates, but the aroma of it is not good, it has a strong oil aroma and may be I am allergic to some of the ingredients, big pimples appeared on that night. Its either I will use a hand sanitizer or wash my hands to clean my hands and yes I knew that frequent doing it will make my hands dried up of its own moisture, so the hand balm is a great time to apply. Well, my skin absorb that balm so fast and yet never leave a sticky feeling once I started working on papers and tapping my keyboard. 

Overall, this product gave me a delight. You can find their branches at Millenia Walk 9 Raffles Boulevard Millenia Walk #01-43 and at Ngee Ann City 391B Orchard Road Ngee Ann City Tower B #B1-50.

Veet Hair Removal Cream

One of my cousin was gifted of nice hair not only on her scalp but all around her body. When I saw her hair-free legs I quickly asked her if she shaved it off. She answered no and told me she used Veet and heard good reviews for a long time user. When I am at the right age, of course I bought Veet and uses to flaunt a sexier, no-hair legs. :) 

Every quarter of the year, I am sliding the Veet's spatula on my skin and on other months, I leave my hair a space to grow on. I used to go to waxing salons also and uses hot/cold waxes to take it off, but I really don't like how the hair grew. Very untidy and very messy. So I go back to my first love... Veet. 

The positive points of this cream, it leaves my skin whiter and for continuous use the speed of the growth of the hair lessens. No big ouch and pain and the whole application and hair removing time will ate only 6-10 minutes of your precious time.

My loyalty and leg's fate will be in Veet forever. The 100gm can last up to 3-4 sessions. Available to Watsons and now on discounted price of $10.30 (U.P $11.45). Grab your tube and spatula now!

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1

Wind, sun, dehydration and beverages are not only the factors of dry/chapped lips. Blame it also to the oral products we are using, mouthwash and toothpaste have chemicals that irritates the lips and results to dryness. This is what concerns me now.

After brushing teeth automatically I gargle for mouthwash, and it really leaves my lips dry. I am not fond using of any products on my lips, unless there is a special date to go, I will put on my brick red lipstick. But currently, I am so alarmed how my lips dries a lot this past few days. I have so many lip balm from different manufacturers but I chose to use Kiehl's first. Thank you to Cosmopolitan Singapore's "The Cosmo Caption Contest", there I got this product. 

I decided to put it on regularly every morning before going to office. Colorless, good point. I want to look as natural as I can in office. No blush on, no eyeliners and obviously lipstick is a big NO for me.

When I opened the tube, it make me think how to use it. After a small pinch, the gel will come out, am baffled what to use to get it from that tube. Should I use my fingers?, unsanitary. Put directly it on my lips?, the bacteria may develop to the opening itself. The greatest way is to use cotton buds... for me. 

For one week of using it, I really see the difference. No flaky lips in the afternoon, lesser dryness after my mouthwash routine, and my lips is softer than before. I never used petroleum jelly on any part of my body, why?, because it reminds me of the smell of my niece and nephews butts. Haha! But this lip balm with petroleum is odorless, nice one!  

Very recommendable to people who lives in a dry, hot place like Singapore or with snows. You can buy this lip balm with SPF4 for $17.

Domino's Pizza Singapore iPhone App - Delivery and Take Away

I am a great lover of pizza. One month will never pass that I won't eat a delicious dough with different toppings and oozing with melted cheese.

I am a follower of Yvonne and a subscriber too, and of course I know every posts she have. Oh, when I saw her post regarding the launch of Domino's Singapore iPhone app, my heart really frozen with envy. I really wish I am also there, experiencing the Singapore Flyer's flight while indulging at my slice of pizza. Haha.

I  downloaded the app and in an instant we connected their Kovan branch.

Until 18th of August they are offering 50% off on every pizza you ordered. I used their app to redeem the promotion(you can also use their webpage), and darl, it so easy to use, you can choose from delivery or take-away.  A XL (15") new york crust simply cheese for $17.90 with a free breadsticks is what we decided to take home. Just key in the promocode: BLG19.

After confirming, we immediately saw our order placed to their monitor. No hassles.. No queues.. Just some tap and slides on iPhone the order was immediately received.

This is a great app for Dominos' fan. Install it, it's for free.  :)
