Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo Set : 
Tsubaki Shampoo, 550ml x 2
Tsubaki Hair Mask 

Product Description: Shiseido Tsubaki [Camellia] Oil has a historical presence among Japan's hair care materials. Recent scientific studies have shown Camellia Oil's effectiveness in hair. Shiseido Camellia oil, made from camellia seeds, has been used in Japan for over a hundred years.
Camellia oil keeps moisture in your hair intact and protects from sun burn!

Shiseido's original Camellia trademark in 1915 highlighted their most popular product, the Camellia Hair Oil. Now it makes it's return in the Tsubaki line. Tsubaki means Camellia in Japanese -- the strength and sign of Japanese beauty.
 Yays : 
- Long lasting flowery scent 
- Made my hair smoother / less frizz
- I have long hair & I'm still not finished with the bottle. It's been 4 months already.

- It's not available locally. There are local resellers online but the price difference is way high. 
- It gave me bacne. Not the little red ones, but the big kind :(
- Not really suited for those who have oily hair. Because by the end of the day, my hair is already oily.
- I'm not fond of the packaging as it is hard to empty out. 

Wallet Damage: 100-110 HKD 

Will I Buy It Again? 
As much as I love this product, I will not buy it anymore as it has given me bacne.

I'm still struggling with life but I'm hoping that I will emerge strong in the future.

Happy Bath Deep Clear Refreshing Bubble Wash

Not to be confused with Happy Bath Day which is a Japanese brand. Happy Bath is a product of Amore Pacific. One of the leading manufacturers in Korea. During my last GMarket spree. I have decided to try out some of their products & one of these is their Deep Clear Refreshing Bubble Wash.

Love: Nail It

I have been a loyal Dashing Diva customer for the past 1 year. But last Sunday, I was all alone in Glorietta while waiting for my hubby to be finished with his thing. I stumbled upon this shop. Since I was also due for a pedicure I decided to try their services. Good decision for me! The girls were so nice & accommodating to me as I was asking a lot of questions. I availed of their pedi spa (300) and pedicure (220?). I thought Dashing Diva's service was worth it but Nail It! takes the cake. I went in at around 1:40 and left at around 3:30. Their seats are more comfortable that I even fell asleep. This rarely happens to me. As for their polishes they use Orly & Face Shop. But at the Glorietta branch, I only saw Orly polishes.

I even got a Membership Card that gives you freebies for a certain number of services you avail to them. 

The bad side is that I have to go all the way to Katipunan as this the nearest branch to me.

Nail It!

My Gmarket Loots

Happy Bath Cleansing Oil – I’m still on the look out for the perfect cleanser. Plus, I have always been curious with this brand but it does not have any reviews. Good timing because I just finished my previous cleanser Dr. Jart
Cell Burner Speed 4 – I was so happy with my previous purchase of this product that I have to try their other products. I got the Aqua Blue Jelly & Star Fruits Sherbet :)
I will be posting reviews soon!
