Review: Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Conditioner

Kiehl's Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Conditioner

Admittedly, my hair is the most revolting part of my body, as it is the least taken cared of. It has been left untreated for God knows when. The only time it’s actually tamed was when I had it rebonded.

Since I’ve been using an anti-dandruff shampoo for everyday washing, my hair has been very dry and unmanageable. This prods me to go  in a quest searching for a mild yet calming conditioner around that will keep my hair soft and manageable sans aggravating my dandruff.

First stop is  in Greenbelt 5 where I got a tube of Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Conditioner. It’s packed with fresh olive fruit oil, enriched avocado oil and a hint of lemon extract that promise to gently cleanse and moisturize the hair—leaving it softened, strengthened and nourished. This is perfect for those who have dehydrated and damaged hair like mine! 🙂

Easy To Rinse,Keeps Hair Soft & Easy To Comb

Unlike other emollient conditioners, this one is very easy to rinse.  It doesn’t take much  time and effort (not to mention, buckets of water) to take the conditioner off. In most cases, those hard-to-rinse conditioners often cause buildup and icky dandruff.  I’m glad to say that this one doesn’t cause nor aggravate my current dandruff condition.

It also makes my hair instantly soft and manageable. It makes my combing experience a whole lot easier than using an anti-dandruff shampoo alone before.  I notice that tangles are lessened.

True to its word, it keeps my hair overall well-moisturized without getting too greasy.

Hair is Light & Bouncy

What I also love about this product is that it doesn’t leave a heavy feeling on my hair. It’s light enough to keep my hair bouncy.

Does Not Calm Frizzes or Flyaways That Much

I do not expect this as a “miracle product”. It really softens and calms my hair in general, but only in such extent that it couldn’t really calm the peskiest frizzes or flyaways abound. I have naturally wavy hair cut into layers, so expect stubborn and scraggly flyaways particularly from the middle down to the roots. This is where other intensive hair treatment products come to the picture. Or, if I really, really wanted to have sleek straight hair, I would have gone another rebonding treatment in a salon.

All in all, I  love this product. It’s my current favorite everyday conditioner. The price may be steep, but I guess it’s worth the splurge. 😉

Price: $ 19/Php 1,150 for a 200 ml tube

Stashed: Mango Mini Snakeskin Wallet.

There’s truth to the adage that good things come in small packages. And, I must admit that I’m fond of collecting these itsy-bitsy pieces–from small bags and clutches to mini-sized coin purses and wallets. Recently, I’ve just got two lovely pieces in addition to my growing collection. One of which is this Mini Snakeskin Wallet I got from Mango.

Mango Mini Wallet

When I first saw this whilst brushing along other wallets and purses, I immediately fell in love with it! I consider this a mini male-version of  bulky ladylike wallets around, since most male wallets I’ve come across with are really compact and small.

What sets this wallet apart from the quaint ones is its faux snakeskin leather in cream color which utterly spells fierce, yet the plain tinge keeps it simple sans losing the chic factor.

It’s also designed as a typical feminine wallet with dual flap button closure on opposite sides. It has a built-in card slot inside and a coin slot at the back in addition.

Card & Bill Slot

Since the wallet’s really small, it could only fit at least one card inside the slot attached. Also, my peso bills can hardly fit inside the bill slot, so I hafta fold them in half in order to insert them fully. However, I believe the euro bills can fit perfectly, given their much smaller size. 😉

On the other hand, I don’t think I can substitute this for my bigger everyday wallet, especially since I have a lot of cards (IDs, ATMs, credit cards, membership cards, etc) I need to bring with me everyday. But I guess, this wallet is perfect for special occasions that require me to bring a less bulky tote. 🙂

Price: around Php 750

Review: Tweezerman Mini Slant Tweezers

Tweezerman Mini Slant Tweezers in Green Tea

Unlike most men, we women got this so-called unwanted hair growing on places where it shouldn’t be. We wax or pluck out the extra hair on our eyebrows in order to maintain that perfect arch, making us look good in return. We tend to wax, pluck or shave our arms, legs and most specially underarms to nix all unwanted hair. Ideally, these places should be smooth, clean and hair-free in order to make us ladies look all neat and sexy! =)

For arms and legs, I prefer waxing than shaving, since it takes much less effort—as you the remove the hair from a large patch of skin in just one quick pull. Also, the hair takes a while to grow back (say, 2-3 weeks). Once it does, it usually grows back less coarse. This is when The Body Shop Cotton Removal Strips come in handy should I prefer doing this myself at the very comforts of my own home.

For the underarms, I remove sightly unwanted hair by means of either plucking or shaving; though I prefer the former even if it requires more effort since (like waxing) the hair takes a while to grow back. I’m really wary when it comes to waxing underarms though, lest they may get darker in return.

Of course, for the eyebrows, I usually ask for a professional’s help to thread them. I just pluck stray hair every now and then for maintenance.

For plucking, my Tweezerman Tweezers do the job. I had Mini Slant Tweezers in flamingo pink before, but unfortunately, I already lost them. Recently, I replaced the lost pair with another one in green tea. The thing with these mini tweezers is that they are cheaper and more pocket-friendly than their larger counterparts. In addition, it also comes with a transparent tube for easy storage.

We’ve all been annoyed by using tweezers that don’t properly grip.  With superior calibrated tension and perfectly aligned, hand-filed precision tips, Tweezerman tweezers close evenly and firmly, creating the cleanest, most advanced pulling power.  These are the tweezers you’ll own your lifetime — and they come with a free sharpening guarantee. – Tweezerman

Slant Tip, Easy Storage and Cheap

What I like most about this pair is its slanted tip that makes plucking easier and more precise. Like what I said earlier, the mini version of these tweezers fits any pocket. So, it takes no hassle to fit it inside a small stash, like my makeup bag or even my wallet!

It also comes with an affordable price tag for only $12.50 a pair here. I got mine for P 650 in Beauty Bar.

Harder Grip for Larger Hands

However, for those who have larger hands like mine, you’d probably get a hard time handling this diminutive piece. It’s really small that it takes more effort on my part to make that “perfect” grip, thus precisely plucking the hair out from its root.
