Something New: Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm

Smith's Lip Balm in Minted Rose

I’m so happy that finally got this after, well, many years of searching. I couldn’t find it anymore in the Philippines, so when I saw it sitting prettily on the counter, I immediately grabbed ahold of it without hesitation.

Well, this is not really something new, as the old formulation (Rosebud Salve) dates you back to 1895. I’m so interested in getting Smith’s Rosebud Salve because of its versatile properties.

It’s not just your ordinary lip balm. It claims to help ease burns (sunburn and chemical burns on the scalp), itchiness, dryness and other skin irritations (such as wind burn, insect bits and zits). It can also help you relieve hemorrhoids diaper rash psoriasis and alopecia. Not only that, it also works as a spa-like treatment (for softer skin), eye makeup remover, cuticle softener and frizz fighter.

I got mine in Minted Rose instead of the original formula (by mistake, but doesn’t matter anyhow 😛 ). I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m expecting it to be cool and minty, which reminds me of my then Agent Provocateur Lip Balm.

Price is at 15 SGD. You can get it at Sephora in ION Orchard, Orchard Road, Singapore. You can visit this page for to check out the product raves. 🙂

Stashed: Pureology ShineMax Shining Hair Smoother

Pureology ShineMax Shining Hair Smoother

In relation to the Pureology Event that I attended around 4 months ago, here’s something that I’ve stashed until then. ;)

One thing that piques my interest greatly about Pureology is that they claim that their products are 100% vegan—meaning, it’s animal-free and mostly made of organic ingredients. So, I kept this bottle of Pureology ShineMax Shining Smoother for future use, since I didn’t have my hair coloured then.

Just recently, I had my haircut and cellophane treatment—after almost a year of keeping it long, dry and totally unkempt! My hair is tinged with a hint of brown, which is only made visible when hit by any light source (which exactly what a hair cellophane does :P ). Finally, there’s a great reason to make use of this leave-in shine serum, and put it to a test as well. :)

The product promises to control frizz and smoothen flyaways, whilst keeping the hair shiny. In addition, Pureology’s AntiFade Complex, which is present in all of their products, keeps the hair colour radiant and makes it long-lasting. What’s more interesting about this product is that it has a zero-alcohol formulation, which won’t dry or aggravate sensitive scalps. Its consistency reminds me of Citre Shine Anti-Frizz Serum, which is a tad watery.

Now, this leaves me curious should it actually give my hair off that perfect shine without looking too greasy, whilst control those stubborn tutyangs and frizzes from having a life of their own! :D I hope it’d also make my hair more manageable, too. :)

Price: around $18
