1st time IPL at Pink Parlour PH

For the longest time I have always love sugar wax as opposed to plucking and shaving. I seemed to became more careless now as I have been plucking for a while ever since I have worked at home so I thought of how about I get rid of the under arm hair permanently? I thought of doing an IPL Hair removal.

What is IPL? 
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal. 

For IPL treatments they say that it takes an average of 8–10 treatments to remove most visible hair. I am not sure how it will work on me so I want to get an affordable option. I have seen a facebook ad for IPL treatment from Pink Parlour PH.

Why choose Pink Parlour Alpha Light Permanent Hair Removal? 
1. It’s effective 
2. No more burns 
3. BYE, BYE ingrown hairs (chicken skin) 
4. Save time & money 
5. Lightens the targeted area 

You will notice hair falling off within 7 days to 3 weeks after the treatment, but hair reduction may not be noticeable as we all have many cycles of actively growing hair. An average person may require 3 to 5 session before noticing any hair reduction. 

Duration: 30 
Min Price:₱1,500.00 Inclusive of taxes



Experience
I have went to their SM North Branch and have set up an appointment at 10AM. I was actually a bit late due to the distance, I was not able to compute the travel time correctly. I came from the south to try their service.

There was a wee bit of waiting time. There is only one customer when I came. During the treatment you will be asked to take off your top and use a towel so they can do the IPL. Thye've applied a cold gel and then proceeded in using their IPL device. It was warm and and all, not really tingly. There was no provided protective glasses so I assume that it is not needed. 

The attendant is a bit chatty and wants to upsell on their other underam treatments. It was really all good until I realized that the total treatment time lasted for only 14 minutes. One underarm was for 9 minutes then the other for 5 minutes. The whole underarm wasn't even fully treated with the IPL light. There was some parts missed. 


How much and where to buy?
I got for P1500 in one of their Facebook ads buy 1 take 1 promo

Overall~ 
With all fairness with the treatment, I noticed hair didn't grow for about a week. I didn't experienced any hair falling from my underarms, I think that happens if I do the treatment for a couple more times. I honestly felt like I could have done it better if I was at home and got my own device. I wasn't satisfied with how long they did the treatment. I woke up real early to avail and yet I wasn't overall satisfied with it. My place is actually far from SM North so I think I won't be going for the 2nd IPL Treatment although I have already paid for it. It is just not worth the hassle.

For now I might go back to cold wax as it is more affordable and so far it works. I want to stop plucking as my armpit is getting a bit darker than before. I will also add an IPL at home device as my goal for next year.

Review: Pax Moly Aloe Vera 99% Moisture Mist

What is one product that can get you through the summer and winter? It's one of the usual skincare products that koreans love? Yes it is face mists! For the longest time I am eyeing to buy face mist but never had the chance to. My very first face mist now is Pax Moly Aloe Vera 99% Moisture Mist.

What is it? 

This Aloe Vera Moisture Mist with 99% Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice is a spray mist that moisturizes and protects the skin against the harmful environment. It definitely hydrates and protects the skin leaving skin perfectly moisturize. It can be used on the face, arms, and legs.

DIRECTION ON HOW TO USE:

1. Spray frequently to moisturize dry skin or to protect the skin from the harmful environment.  
2. When using on the face, spray 10-15cm away.

CAUTIONS:

1. For external use only.  
2. Avoid contact with eyes.  
3. Discontinue use if signs of irritation or rashes appear.  
4. Keep out of reach of children.  
5. Replace the cap after use.

Packaging
Green spritz plastic bottle with a plastic cap. It is a bit bulky for my liking but I can also transfer it to a small spritz bottle in case I need a smaller version of it. Expiration date is clearly printed on the bottom and the ingredients are in english and stated on the bottle too.


Experience
I love how affordable and convenient Pax Moly Aloe Vera 99% Moisture Mist is. You can't go wrong with the ingredients as it is 99% aloe vera! I can practically use it on the summer and cold months. Summer to freshen up then spritz on the cold months to add extra moisture even when I am on the go! I can imagine using this if in case I am in a well air-conditioned office to fight skin dryness and all.


What I love

It's 99% Aloe Vera
Gentle and hydrating
Can be used on both summer and cold seasons
Can set up my makeup
Doesn't irritate my skin
Affordable

What I don't

Not readily available in the stores
Bottle is a bit bulky for me

How much and where to buy?
P250 for 150ml available with Pax Moly distributors nationwide, mostly online based

Will I repurchase? 
I might, but I would like to try the cute mist from Tony Moly. I am just not sure if it is still available.

Overall~ 
Pax Moly Aloe Vera Mist does the job and it is affordable too. Price and quality wise, this is a good buy. I recommend you to try it too.

Do you have any products or brand that you want me to try or review? If you have any questions do not hesitate to leave a comment below and I'll try to reply back. If you are also using another brand of face mist then you may share it with us too.

Hey ya'll I have watched Love Alarm, it is a really good web drama from Netflix. If you are looking for a fast phase yet not draggy type of drama that simply delivers then go for it. I am head over heels with the lead male character, Song Kang. The story revolves around a popular dating app called Love Alarm that sends notifications to the person (or people) you like whenever you’re within 10 meters of them. Now isn't that fascinating? Watch and see how the story unfolds for the leads.

Galderma Retacnyl Tretinoin Cream .05% for Acne Treatment

Do you still remember the timer when I shared with you the prescription drugs I got from my derma? Besides that, I also got a prescription for a topical solution and that is the Galderma Retacnyl Tretinoin Cream .05%. At first, I am not really aware of what is it so I made some research.



What is it? 
Retacnyl Tretinoin is used to treat acne. It may decrease the number and severity of acne pimples and promote quick healing of pimples that do develop. Tretinoin belongs to a class of medications called retinoids. It works by affecting the growth of skin cells. Credits to: Webmd

How to use:
The tretinoin must be used on a clean face and thinly applied with clean fingertips.

Experience:
My dermatologist said that during the first few weeks of using Galderma Retacnyl Tretinoin Cream .05%, my acne will appear worse because of not just the capsules I take but also because of the cream that works on pimples forming inside the skin. It is said that it might take up to 8-12 weeks to notice the results of the medication.

Besides being given the warning, I was still in panic when all of the breakouts came after a week of using it. It is so severe and my skin was at it's worst. I can't even bear to post a picture. I risked to put on more of the cream which made it even worst than before. My skin micro-peeled, there was also more redness and pain. It can't be covered by makeup anymore too and I don't want to come to work looking like it. I stopped using the cream and waited for my skin to heal.

The cream does work in drying out acne fast especially the red big ones but because of that it also leaves dark marks. It made my skin really dry. I went back to the derma wherein I was prescribed another batch of capsules and was advised to continue the cream 'in moderation'.

How much?
P1,280 for a 30g big tube which can last for more than a month. This is a prescripted cream so you will need to consult a dermatologist if you want to buy one.

Overall~ 
I think this cream works somehow in drying out acne but my breakout still won't stop even after taking almost a year of taking anti-acne capsules. I don't want to risk myself anymore because both of the cream and capsules contain really potent ingredients. This still might be an option or something that can work for somebody else, but it's not really for me. Not to mention these are expensive.

I am sharing my experience for the people who might have been prescribed Retacnyl Tretinoin Cream and wants to know what to expect from it. If you have any questions just let me know in the comments.

Life Updates: White Skin, New Hair Color & Fave Streamers

Hi guys it's the end of the week right here. I am still amazed on how time flies so fast and it's nearing October! Just thought of giving a bit of an update with this post.

New hair color!
I finally got tired of my blonde turned pink locks and I dyed it purple! In case you see entries or blonde hair vlogs then it is definitely something from my backlog haha.

Did a splurge shopping!
I normally just go with what is cheap and affordable but last weekend I cannot help but buy this set of top and shorts. It isn't like I don't have something similar but it just caught my eye somehow. Goodbye to my hard earned cash, this was from Surplus. The top is from Forever21 but I forgot the brand of the shorts.


New line of skincare from Minjun's Philippines: White Skin
Minjun's Philippines is the official distributor of Pax Moly Korean skin care products. Now they made their very first local brand line called White Skin. I ordered my first set as I am real curious on the promised 3 days effect. The skincare line is based mostly on glutathione and collagen.
It's basically a whitening set and it comes with a bleaching soap, toner, serum, cream and lotion. I am praying real hard that hopefully if this is effective they can do some line for anti-acne as well, yes?

Weekend Plans
I will be with my fam this weekend but my dad is sick so I am not sure if we can still go out and celebrate my sister's birthday. And oh, we lost 2 kittens as mentioned by my younger brother. 🙁

I might still do something else on Monday too.

Watch my Fave streamers!
I have also started playing Mobile Legends Bang Bang. I even recorded my 60th day brawl to commemorate but I've decided not to post it. The game really stresses me out so instead of playing I watch game streamers. My favorite is BobongGamer. Do watch his live stream, he can make his audience laugh, that is why his audience is so engage in watching daily even without any skin or diamond give aways.

If you want a pro-player livestream, tips and tricks you may want to try RollerGaming instead.

Overall~ 
That is about it! I really do hope to get more subs in my Youtube by the way but I can't find the time to edit my videos. I got a couple pending now haha. Anyway do share your plans for the weekend, Happy Friday everyone!

Review: Skin Potions Set of Tomato Serum, Acne Pie Soap and Snowberry Cream

I found this sampler set from Shopee. You know I have tried a lot of products and not every product will work good so to avoid wasting money I opted to buy a sampler kit. I can attest that she is legit because she also sells authentic full-sized products. I really like the whole concept of this all-natural and cute beauty brand. Look at how adorable they did their website too.

About the brand:
Skin Potions offers organic and natural based products which was often available in bazaars and collaboration stores. Right now they also have kiosks at SM Supermalls too. Skin Potions offers a selection of innovative, high quality skincare and cosmetic products at affordable prices in whimsical packaging that’s guaranteed to work their magic for your skin!

Packaging
I can't say much about the packaging coz this was a repackaged product but the original packaging of Skin Potions is very cute! They have cartoon-style labels I really adore.

Skin Potions Set of Tomato Serum, Acne Pie Soap and Snowberry Cream 

P250/140g
Shoo away those eeky acne with this sweet treat! It mildly whisks away dead skin cells, irritation and redness, heals and dries up your acne, bacne and pimples in no time. Leaving a soft and moist glow behind. 😍
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Lye, Vegetable Glycerin, Water, Salicylic Acid, Butyrospermum parkii, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Papaya Extract, Aloe Vera Oil Extract, Oat Kernels, Shea Butter, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum, FD&C Brown

Review: The soap has this round circles design on it, it reminds me of a honey comb and a bubble wrap. I am not sure why but this photo on their website doesn't show the design, but I swear they have it! The soap doesn't melt easily and it's foamy. It doesn't make my skin dry and it cleanses well too. The scent is not over-powering. 

P295/ 30 g
For a radiant, glowing look; helps restore skin’s natural pH balance; minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores; reduces irritations and inflammations such as acne; relieves and heals sunburnt skin; fights free radicals with an antioxidant powerhouse that includes vitamins A and C, lycopene, and proteins. Recommended for combination to oily skin. 
Ingredients Aqua, Carbopol, Propylene Glycol, Tomato Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Collagen, Aloe Vera, Vitamin C, Whitenol, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Fragranc

Review: I am aloof to try tomato-based products because I find that I am a bit allergic to it but I took the plunge. I like the sweet scent of this serum but it doesn't smell like a tomato. Is there even a tomato scent? 

Price: P465/ 50g
This all-in-one cream fights and heal acne, lightens dark spots, hyperpigmentation, insect bites and even stretch marks! It can also be used as a make up primer, pore filler and pore minimizer while it gives the skin a nice matte finish. This cream is definitely what dreams are made of!
Ingredients: Papaya Extract, Bearberry Extract, Licorice Extract, Snail Filtrate, Whitenol Extract, Acerola Cherry Extract, Ruce Bran Oil, Titanium Dioxide and Essential Oils

Review: This cream smells so sweet like strawberry and I love it. The cream is very thick so you need to blend it well for it to be absorbed. It minimizes my pores and brightens up my skin tone. It does make my skin oil up a bit after a while though but it's fine.

How to use:
1. Create lather of Acne Pie soap onto hands by adding water. Spread the lather gently unto the skin. Rinse and pat dry.
2. Apply a thin layer of Tomato serum, massage onto face gently and leave it for two minutes before applying Strawberry cream.

What I love
I was able to try the products before buying the full-sized!


What I don't

Tomato serum broke me out somehow

Will I repurchase? 
I want to buy a full-sized Snowberry Cream!

Overall~ 
I've used this set for a month but I still get breakouts. I first tried using the soap first and it was okay but I got breakouts when I added the Tomato serum. I had no problems with the Strawberry cream though, it's a really good moisturizer. Skin Potions Set of Tomato Serum, Acne Pie Soap and Snowberry Cream is a good skincare set as it's all natural but effect varies from one person to another. You can still try this set and see for yourself it it's a good fit. Let me know in the comments how it went for you!

Review: Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line

It has been a full week of nothing but rain. Giving us more reasons to stay indoors, I bet the malls are not as jam-packed compared to when it was summer. I also want to share that I was able to get hold of a promo Cebu Pacific flight for March and I can't be more excited. Guess where we are heading to? Yay. I'll tell you at the end of this post. So for today, our entry is still related to our search for products for clear skin. Today's review is about Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line.


Human Nature says: 
Be acne-free in three! This three-step regimen is infused with the power of tea tree oil to effectively reduce the appearance of pimples while being gentle on your skin. 
Step 1: Cleanse your face with Acne Defense Facial Wash. 
Step 2: Apply Acne Defense Face Toner using gentle swipes. 
Step 3: Boost your acne-fighting skin care regimen with Acne Defense Solution Gel.

Packaging
Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line is in the usual plastic packaging with flip top cap for the toner and face wash while a push pump dispenser for the acne gel. They are very hygienic and travel friendly.



I'd really appreciate it if the packaging will be nature friendly as well but I know how convenient plastic bottles are. I am kinda hoping of a policy in the future wherein there is a drop box for plastic discards and it will be collected by the brand where it was from so they can make use of it.

Experience
I remember the very first product I tried from Human Heart Nature was their Sunflower oil. I like it but I stopped buying it because it smelled like adobo after some time of using it. Fast forward today, I truly liked how their Acne Defense Solution Gel worked for me so I've decided to try the whole Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line.

Facial wash
100ml/ P169.75
Packed with pimple-fighting tea tree oil and skin-soothing aloe vera, this non-abrasive, alcohol-free facial wash combats pimples without harsh chemicals that can irritate skin.





This facial wash smells and feels refreshing. I like the scent somehow minty and herbal like if I am making sense. The main component of this face wash is tea tree. Per instruction it says to shake well first before using a button-sized amount to massage the face while humming a catchy tune. I've noticed that this face wash doesn't lather up but my skin feels so soft and bright after I pat dry with a towel.

Toner
100ml/ P109.75
Break free from breakouts without the harsh chemicals. This tea tree oil powered toner effectively reduces the appearance of pimples and helps reduce skin oiliness. Natural AHAs aid in skin exfoliation, gently promoting skin renewal.



The toner has the same scent with the face wash (well because it is also tea tree! hehe) It goes on clear and clear like usual toners. I find that I need to apply a lot to use this toner. It also somehow felt drying. It doesn't pick up much dirt so I am assuming that the face wash did the job for cleansing.

Acne Gel
20g/P199.75

Get clearer-looking skin without the harmful side effects of chemical treatments. This potent blend of tea tree oil and pimple-fighting actives penetrates the skin to help crack down on breakouts and dry out blemishes.




Well I don't really feel like digging into how much I love this Acne Gel. I basically finished 5 bottles of it already. It comes in grayish gel which dries out my acne without leaving dark marks.

Clause from this line says 
Purging may occur when first using this product. You may experience a few more pimples coming out and your skin may seem oilier than usual as dirt bacteria and excess oil surface deep-cleaning.

Purging may last 1-3 weeks as it said but mine lasted more than that. I was using the entire line for a month and my case worsened. I figured out it was the toner's fault because at first 3 days I was only using the face wash and my skin was fine. I had recurring pimples which I can't get rid of.


How much and where to buy?

Whole set is available for P429 in their Human Nature online shop before but they often change promos. You can also buy each item separately. 

What I love
Affordable
Tea tree scent
Face wash fully cleanses my skin
Bright skin after washing
 Acne Gel works as fast as 2 days
Acne Gel doesn't sting
I can buy each item separately
Cruelty free

What I don't

Toner is drying for me
Toner made me break out

Will I repurchase? 
Sadly due to the toner, I will have to pass out in using the entire line but I will keep on loving the Acne Gel.

Overall~ 
I realized that this line wasn't for me. I got nothing but breakouts due to the toner but I feel like I can still use the face wash and stick with the acne gel. 

Despite what happened I still adore the brand because they are not just locally made but they are also NPA certified which means they have 100% no harmful chemicals: No parabens, synthetic fragrances, alcohol, SLS/ SLES, formaldehyde or other toxic chemicals. Human Heart Nature is also cruelty free which means they do not test on animals. Keep in mind that if you want cruelty free products you must avoid brands that sell in China. China still requires all imported cosmetics and special-use cosmetics to be tested on animals.


~~~~

So that is our review for today, and yes before I forget location reveal for our get-away on March - Palawan! Yes we'll be on an early summer get-away and I am very excited! I think the last time I was there was when I was on college during a tour.

Do comment and share your current skincare regimen. For now I went back to my Safeguard and Acne Gel combo to be on the safe side.

Review: Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water

Raise your hands if you love doing makeup! I'll also raise my feet if I can. With all of the new brands and kinds of makeup popping like crazy, who wouldn't love to try and prettify themselves with it? Now I know we all face the hardest part of the day and that is removing all of the makeup! When you're so tired nothing matters anymore, lol. So I am glad I was able to use Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water which was made for the lazy bones like me.



Garnier says:
Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water is the 1st Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water, powerful at removing make-up, even waterproof yet surprisingly gentle on skin. For the 1st time Garnier combined its Micellar Technology with nourishing Argan Oil. The micelles capture and lift away residue like a magnet, while the oils dissolves traces of makeup.& nourishes the skin.

Packaging
I like the small clear cute bottle plastic packaging. It's similar to the usual Micellar Cleansing water but the cap is in color flesh.

Garnier Micellar Oil-infused Ingredients
Experience
I have tried 3 different kinds of Micellar cleansing water before, namely: Maybelline, Loreal and the usual Garnier cleansing water. What made this new product stand out is that it says that it's the very first oil-infused  micellar cleansing water. I was so curious how will it fare because oil and water won't mixed and who knows, it might make me oily!

Just the same I bought Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water. I was able to use 3 cotton pads to completely remove my foundation, waterproof eyeliner, eyebrow and lip tint. Unlike the usual micellar water, this new variant is lightly scented which I really don't mind because I am used to the scent of my Argan Oil at home. It was able to remove my waterproof eyeliner without tugging. The formula is non-greasy nor left an oily film even with the inclusion of oil in it. I seriously tried to use it without rinsing once and it was good because I didn't get breakouts from it. It somehow seemed like my skin was moisturized afterwards.


How much and where to buy?
P149 for 125 ml of product and I got mine from Watsons. The usual Garnier Micellar cleansing small bottle costs P125.

What I love

Removes waterproof eyeliner
Gets rid of makeup without tugging the skin
No need to rinse, perfect for lazy nights!
Non-greasy
Moisturizes skin is the extra benefit
Gentle and still feels like water even with the inclusion of Argan Oil
Affordable and accessible product
I got the travel size which is so handy

What I don't

Nothing I can mention

Will I repurchase? 
I might! I like this better than the usual micellar cleansing water but I also want to try the Banila Co cleansing balm.

Overall~ 
I commend Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water for a job well done. I like the idea of a Micellar Argan Oil infused product. It simply works! I've already mentioned all of the reasons why I like it, and there is no reason not to.

What cleansing water or make-up remover are you using at the moment? Let me know what you think about this product, just drop down a comment.

Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 First Impressions

Have you ever felt like you need to cleanse not just from the outside but also from the inside? Have you ever felt like your skin doesn't get any better even after putting your trust in a complete skincare line? When I bought this Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 I wasn't thinking of the whitening benefits. I know that at this point in my life I need to detoxify. I have looked for a new Glutathione to try and saw Bing's Vlog Review which seems very promising.

It was not long until I've decided on getting 2 bottles to make sure I'll know if it's effective or not.

Glutathione Facts: 
Antioxidant
Immune booster
Detoxifier
Anti-aging
Skin whitener


Relumins says:
Proprietory formulation of L-Glutathione complex with Reduced L-Glutathione with Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Rose Hips to improve Glutathione Absorption.

Directions: Take 2 capsules once per day or as directed  by your physician. 


For the Ingredient list please zoom into this photo:







Packaging
It comes in a box which is good as it secured the product. The plastic bottle inside is tinted red. The brand label's minimalist design is clean looking and was also applied to their other products as well. I've discovered they have whitening creams and other types of Glutathione capsules besides the Gluta-1000. 



This brand is also said to be made in the US. It has a US authenticity sticker on it.

Experience
I have tried a couple of Glutathione brands before and I must admit sometimes it's hard to see the difference if you are not observant with your skin and all. I am fair-skinned to start with but my problem is not with my skin tone but the fact that I get a lot of breakouts.



I've started to take Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 more than a week ago and I've gotten a pimple on my forehead, eyebrow, and cheeks. It's not as bad as my first breakout because this time the pimples dried up faster than before.



 I was also looking forward to getting rid of the dark spots left by bacne and hopefully get rid of it altogether (I also use a few bath products alongside with the Gluta) I am taking this daily. One capsule 30 minutes after breakfast and another capsule 30 minutes after dinner. I wasn't able to buy a Vitamin C yet and I am not sure if I should take it with Vitamin C because I am quite acidic.



One time I took the capsule wrong and it stuck on my throat. I guess it's a bit big for me, I've learned my lesson to careful in taking the capsule.

How much and where to buy?
P990 at BeautyMNL. I believe you can also find this in Watsons and Shopee but be diligent in buying as there are a lot of fake ones. Make sure to read the feedback first to make sure you're getting the real deal.

So far~
It's too early to comment on the effect of the Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 although I've been taking it continuously for more than a week now. My boyfie says I am glowing nowadays which might be a hint that the Glutathione is working somehow but I can't give all the credit to Relumins just yet. I will be making 30 days and 60 days video for this product so stay tuned!



Do follow me in Youtube channel as I'll be posting an unboxing too and the next updates. We also have a Facebook page for any questions etc. Or you can comment down below, let me know if you're also currently taking Glutathione capsules for detoxification!

Life Update: BER Month and Shopping haul

BER months just started with a BANG! It's suddenly cold and breezy right now and it adds up to the early Christmas feeling. I just want to give an update, do subscribe to my Youtube channel right now if you haven't yet.

I have just gotten a LED ring light that I can use for my next Youtube videos and it was the best decision I've made so far. Life has been good lately and I couldn't be any more grateful. I just had a quick haul, check out below photos.

Been able to watch John Wick 3 and The Innocent Witness and both are good movies. For small screen drama I am not watching Hotel Del Luna which is ending soon, too bad! It is a great korean drama with a very unique interesting plot about death and ghosts. Do watch it, it's highly recommended.

MY SHOPPING HAUL!
I got this new products from my online shopping, Watsons and the supermarket. I might still need to practice more in photography though as these photos below doesn't give justice to the led ring light haha. But forgive me now, just scroll through them.



THE PINK TEAM!

Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Conditioner Review up  for this baby!

Betadine Pink Bliss Feminine Wash - My fave feminine wash so far, it's the most affordable in the shelves.

Chic Nail Polish in Cotton Candy - Such a sweet color that makes me really happy, it even have glitters!



Garnier Micellar with Argan Oil - This is something new from Garnier, and I love it! I will be doing a VLOG review real soon!

iWhite Matcha Ice cream Wash-off Mask - I love green tea so this is something I will not want to miss trying.

Johnson's Baby Shampoo I am avoiding lots of chemicals so I opted to try this shampoo.



Relumin's Gluta-1000 - This month is detoxification month for me. I am also posting an initial review on my Youtube channel.

Chroma Celloshine in Blue Violet - I am making my own purple conditioner for toning my hair.

Kojie San Kojic soaps (not in photo) - My favorite whitening soap when I have sunburns.

Nham Cha Pink Milk!
My newly discovered sweet concoction that tasted like melted ice scramble! At first it was weird (might be better with crystals) but then I ended up loving it.





That pretty much sums up my life right now. I am also thinking of studying spanish and relaunching my online shop. Woo but I'm busy, but nowadays, who is not busy?! Time is not an excuse but the willingness to do things indeed.

Any questions or products you want me to review? Comment down below!

Review: Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy

Hello September! Now that it's cold and breezy my hair doesn't get too greasy anymore as compared in the summer. It's not a big secret that I am a big fan of Cream Silk, during Lazada's sale I got myself 5 big bottles of Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue! How crazy is that? Next time I'll get a one year supply if I have the funds LOL. Anyway so I ran out of my favorite conditioner and just in time, I saw a new commercial which was the Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy which is for limp and flat hair. At first, I wasn't even aware of the variant, all I know is this new variant is baby pink!


What is it? 
Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy for limp and flat hair. 
Cream Silk's lightest and freshest conditioning system yet. Infused with the power and Hydracollagen Technology, It gets instantly absorbed to feel hydrated and quench dryness.  

3 Main Points:
Water-based
Non-greasy
Easy-Rinse

Directions:
After shampoo massage through hair from mid to tip. Rinse well after 1 minute. For best results use every day.



Packaging
I will be honest in saying that the reason why I purchase this was because of the packaging's color. Call me shallow on this matter but pink plays a big part in my decisions haha.


The flip cap opening is typical for the Cream Silk conditioners. Too bad because I got a defective one which won't close and the product was a mess when I got it from the plastic bag.



Experience
So like I've mentioned I didn't even know I was buying a variant for limp and flat hair, my hair is neither very oily though so I think I am somewhere in between those lines. My hair as you all know is chemically treated and usually dry. For this line, Cream Silk has this in Fresh and Hydrated variant for Oily and Greasy hair. This one, on the other hand, is a baby blue bottle.


The first impression is that it smells very feminine although I like my Triple Keratin Rescue scent more. That can just be me though, this one also smells nice but to each is own. The conditioner itself is white and more on the watery side. If this is some other brand I will think that it won't moisturize my hair at all because it seemed so light. The formula is water-based true to their claims and it's very easy to spread on my hair strands. Rinsing the conditioner is also quick and easy due to the easy rinse formula and I've only left it for a minute. Good on the days where you are in a hurry and it won't leave a residue as it's non-greasy. On weekends I like to let it stay longer  on my hair.

True enough, my hair is bouncy after it air-dried. My hair has the natural volume so I can't say it's volumized but it's light and fragrant. I want to believe the intense hydration because my hair doesn't feel dry to touch now.

How much and where to buy?

P228.75 for 300ml in Puregold Supermarket. You can also snag a bottle in Watsons or leading supermarkets nationwide.


What I love
Water-based which makes it a conditioner that will weigh the hair down
My hair is bouncy but still light
Hair is soft to touch and not dry
Non-greasy formula
Easy rinse which means it'll save me water
Perfect conditioner to use when in a hurry
Affordable!
Product is available almost anywhere

What I don't
Nothing I can mention

Will I repurchase? 
I might try the blue one next time!

Overall~ 
Although I really really love the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue, I must say that their new line Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy is also true to their claims. I was able to hydrate my hair in as fast as 1 minute and I couldn't be any happier. Price is also a big thumbs up of course. Overall, I recommend you guys to try this conditioner.
