Review: Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Hair Repair Leave-In Conditioner Spray (200ml)

I picked up this bottle of moisture leave-in spray conditioner from Schwarzkopf because the packaging is so pretty. It's glossy pink! Besides, my hairstylist Ken also recommended this brand to me at his salon sometime ago. I'm lucky that I picked up a great product. Read on if you want silky smooth hair (^^) & to know more about this liquid silk gloss spray.

[Directions/ How I Use It]
The directions are printed in a language that is foreign to me (maybe it's German), so here's how I use it:
-Turn the bottle upside down to mix the foam with the pinkish liquid at the bottom.
-Spray the repair formula on your wet/dry hair.
-This is a leave-in conditioner, hence you DON'T need to rinse it off.
-Avoid the eyes
[What It Does]
-Hair cell repair. Repairs inside the hair cell.
-Gives hair a silky smooth texture, while hair still remains its volume
-Up to 90% more shine
-Moisture leave-in
-Hair will smell great (it kinda reminds me of the salon-type hair treatment sprays)
-Especially for brittle & dull hair

Review: Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ (PA+++) Helioplex

It's Friday~ Don't you just love Fridays? <3

Well, I'm from Malaysia and we have sunny days almost 365 days/year here(except for rainy days). Hence, I have tried many types of sunblock/sunscreens and I've found a pretty good one recently. Here's Neutrogena's UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ with Helioplex broad spectrum UVA-UVB PA+++. (I know, what a long name right? =p)

I purchased it from the local Guardian Stores with discount. Yes, I like sales, and it's the best time to try new products. (*.^) (If you like SPF for extra protection from the sun, you should also check-out the ZA Vitamin Lip Balm)

[Directions/How I Use It]
From the label on the back, it says:
-Apply liberally on body 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. Re-apply frequently to maintain protection, especially after sweating, swimming, towel drying or extended sun exposure.

As for me, although the labels says it's for body, I have tried it on my face for the past few weeks.
I apply a thin layer on my face early in the morning, above moisturizer and under my Revlon liquid foundation. (Some people say that we should put sunblock before moisturizer, I'm still reading about this) Besides that, my arms are also slathered with this sunblock, because I need to walk under the sun a lot. A girl has to protect herself from skin-aging, right?

[What It Does]
Neutrogena's Helioplex sunblock (SPF 50+, PA+++) is said to be a breakthrough in sun protection. Because it is stabilized with Helioplex, it provides superior balanced broad-spectrum protection against skin-aging UVA and burning UVB rays. This is combined with Dry Touch technology for an ultra-light non-shiny finish. This lightweight sunblock has a light fresh scent and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin.

Review: ZA Vitamin Lip with Sunscreen SPF 26

Another post for u guys, and this review is on ZA's Vitamin Lip. (^^) Actually, I purchased this before my Maybelline lip balm. Why? Because it tastes funny. It's salty. Seriously.

This Treatment Stick(exact words quoted from the packaging) has SPF 26 with pure Vitamin C, and that was the main reason I purchased it.. So, with hope that I get soft pink lips, I picked this up from the shelves.

[Directions/ How I Use It]
Extend stick out slightly and apply on lips.
Can be worn under lipstick.
For me, I apply at night(during the weekends) so that my lips can absorb vitamins =)

[What It Does]
Helps prevent sunburn, to maintain a young healthy look.
Higher SPF gives more sunburn protection

-Citrus flavoured with pure Vitamin C
(Active ingredient Octinoxate 7.4%)
-Mineral Oil, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Paraffin, Ascorbic Acid, Trioctanoin, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Petrolatum, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Tocopherol, Orange Oil, Stearyl Glycyrrhetinate,  Tocopheryl Acetate, Diisostearyl Maate, BHT, Glyceryl Diisostearate, CI 19140

I guess this is a lip balm if you are heading to the beach. Because the packaging stresses that it helps protect and prevent sunburn on lips. But, that doesn't explain the salty+sour(lemony) taste. (The sourness is from the pure Vitamin C?) It's a bit weird for me, frankly speaking.

Review: Maybelline New York Lip Smooth Color & Care (Lip Balm)

Hi again...since I carry this Refreshing Tinted Lip Balm(quoted from Maybelline =p) in my bag every day, I might as well do a review about it.
Presenting you my newest find - a lip balm for day use.

For cute, soft & kissable lips, first of all we need to drink enough water. Yup, that simple step will make a huge difference on our lips too. Actually, my hubby always reminds me to drink water. (^^) Besides drinking water and exfoliating our lips, having the right lip balm is important to me.

[Directions/ How I Use It] 
Apply directly on lips (daily, if you can)

[What It Does]
-Revitalises dry/dull lips
-Gives moisturizing shine
-Softens & smoothens lips
-Protects lips from the sun (it has SPF 16 (^^)/)

Review: Nanowhite Refining Treatment Toner

I used to skip this step of using toner. Yea, yea...I know I shouldn't have done that. But I didn't see why it was necessary, nor did I pay attention to my pores on the face (><).

If you were like me, here is what a toner typically does. It balances the pH of skin after facial wash and also removes excess oil or dirt from face.

[Directions/ How I Use It]
After washing face, I will use around 2 drops of toner on a cotton pad and wipe from the nose to the cheeks (outwards, because my nose area is a tad more oily). 

[What It Does]
This treatment toner tightens pores and removes excess facial oil.
It has Omega White-C, Allantoin, Orange Extract, Lemon Extract and Bilberry Extract to balance and hydrate the skin.

Review: Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion

Okay, i must admit that I bought this during the recent Watsons sales =p
(Kiasu-ism at its best, huh? hehe...)

For a bottle with 200ml cleansing lotion that costs below RM20, I was eager to find out if it works well.

Yippee for the pump....
This is how I used it for the past few weeks.
Just pump 3-4 times and massage a white(medium consistency) cleansing lotion onto face. The silky texture is heavenly...and I had fun massaging my face =)

Review: Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Lotion (170ml)

I purchased some Hada Labo products recently (from Guardian) when it was on discount.
(Every girl loves SALES (^^)/)

Because I am tanned, moisturizing as well as whitening is important to me.
So, let's talk about the 170ml Whitening Lotion.
(It is called whitening lotion, but it is acts like a toner actually)

Use twice daily after cleansing face.
Apply on palms and gently pad onto skin until thoroughly absorbed.

-Contains Arbutin to fight dark spots. Smoothes and clarifies to optimize skin's radiance and translucency
(who doesn want radiance n translucency? (^^) 1 bottle plz)
-Vitamin C
-Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate intensely keeping skin soft & fair & supple
-Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
-Free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant

The texture is watery(like toner) and is easily absorbed by my skin even without patting.
There is no fragrances, mineral oil or alcohol, and hence skin is not irritated.

I have been using it for a month now, and I'm lovin it.
Face is boing! boing! hehe....=p
Not really drastic super-fast whitening though, I guess it may take some time.

[Would I Buy it Again?]
Rating: 8/10
Its affordable and I like whitening products. =)
The more I use it, my skin seems to look better, soft and radiant. the way, I also bought some other Hada Labo produts.
Will review them soon.

(New Reviews: Click here for a review of the greatly raved Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion. There is one sold everey 4 seconds in Japan! Another product worth mentioning is the Hada Labo Tamagohada AHA + BHA cleanser. It gently exfoliates and can be used daily to reveal smooth new skin.)
