Neutrogena Hydro Boost Body Lotion Gel Review

Once in a while I come across a product that I am so sold into that I want to write about it. This product is one of them. Before having this product, I swore by Nivea Creme (the classic one in blue tin). My skin is really dry, flaky, and too sensitive that only Nivea really helped. I have been using this creme all over my body for the last 2 years (Review here). Although it is a super creme and as I mentioned, it’s the only one that really…

So anyway here are my proven best hair masks to repair a very dry, course but brittle hair.  Let me first list the all natural ones. 🙂 Olive oil, coconut oil, and honey. I just combine this ingredients or use each separately. Lather them all over…

Review of Schwarzkopf Glisskur Total Repair Express Conditioner

I found a wonderful hair treatment product just about 2 months ago and am now in my 2nd purchase.  Just a quick background about my hair though. My hair is frizzy and thick, unmanageably dry and a total mess without using the iron. So I end up ironing my hair ever 3 days or so. The end effect is of course, a drier hair. I have tried a lot of leave-on conditioners out there and though there are many that may have worked, I have honestly never really made a…

Yves Rocher Review: Why do I buy from this beauty company?

I receive an advertisement from Yves Rocher every month in my mailbox for I think more than 3 years now.  Not that I am complaining really. I mean, I receive mailbox advertisements quite a lot from different companies but they are fairly easy to turn off. I just need to send an email to the publisher then the ads stop, which I have done countless times already. Somehow though, I never turned off this ads from Yves Rocher. I look forward in receiving them actually. Well, I would say that…

My experience with Aliexpress Online Shopping

Some months ago, a Swiss co-worker and I were talking about online shopping and she was raving about Aliexpress. Aliexpress is an online shop that is based in China. This is the company that was founded by the famous Jack Ma. It is sort of like Amazon or Ebay where sellers post their their goods in their online stores inside the Aliexpress website.  Anyway, she said that the site is good and very cheap and that she always shop there.  So I said I will give it a try. On…

Essence Gel Nail Polish Review

nail polish review

I do not really like splurging money on expensive things. I, however, also do not like to use products with cheap quality and lousy effectiveness. So whenever I ‘discover’ a product that works, I tend to include them in my arsenal. So here comes nail polish. I was really getting tired of having to do my nails every other day because it chips and need to be done again. This time though, I have a system and products that I would like to share because they work and am really…

NIVEA Cream Review

Winter is gruesome to my skin. I get flakes at the sides of my nose, at my lower eyebrow lids and even dandruffs in the area where my hair lines begin. I have tried a lot really. The best serum I have tried is from DIOR and it was really a super cream but it also comes with a super price. I think it was the DIOR One Essential serum. I had it as a gift but never purchased it afterwards because I found it really expensive. I was not…
