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!

Gmarket Seller: Dr. Jart

Price: 19,000 won

Bought this months ago together with Re-Tighten Mask which was being sold as a set.

 - One tube lasted me for months. You only need to apply a small amount then dilute it with water before you put it in your face.
- It really does do the job of cleaning your face because when I apply my toner, there’s no more trace of dirt left in my face. The oiliness in my face did lessen also.

- Unfortunately, there are more cons than pros. It can be quite harsh on those who have sensitive skin (like me). That’s why I dilute it with water because sometimes
- it made my skin dry & flaky. My pores are still there & it did nothing to my pores.

Purchase it again? Sadly, NO. I had high hopes for Dr. Jart products.

Recommended for: I would recommend this for those who don’t have sensitive skin.

Speed Cell Burner 4

No, it’s not part of a computer or something geeky!

Product Description is in Korean.
Made by Yedang Cosmetics.
Price: P292.00
Body & Body

I would always find myself looking at this store because of their products & out of curiosity I bought the one for the tummy (the red one). Now that I have started to take care of my weight I have been doing treadmills lately. I tried it out since it would be the perfect complement for my exercise. I was so right! I squeezed just enough for my tummy & once I massaged it, give it 5-10 minutes you will feel the effect. It’s comparable to Omega but it’s more hotter. The scent is also floral & I love it.
I did sweat a lot in my tummy area where I put the gel. This product is recommended especially for those who are exercising.
One good thing about this store is that they have a lot of variants to choose from. There’s one for night time, with flavors, for the whole body. So better check this store.

New Home Again

Hopefully this is the last!
