[Review] Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak

I used to avoid writing products for the hair because I didn't want to focus on my bushy, dry, frizzy hair. But it's different now. I have committed myself to find a solution for it, so here I am with my first review on hair care products. 

I will start with Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak. This one because I was touched by the kindness of the sales assistant when I went to Kiehl's Mall of Asia. I just passed by their store and paused for a while to look at the skeleton display, when she smiled and approached me. She asked my concern and so I said, "Do you have products to tame dry, frizzy hair?"

She then lead me to the Argan range and suggested that I have the Hair Pak. I asked if they have a sample of it so that I can try first. PhP2,000 for a 250mL bottle is too high a risk. 
However, they ran out of samples for it. But the SA went the extra mile and told me that she will just scoop out an amount from the tester bottle. She put the sample in a small white container just enough for one time use. I would estimate it to be 5mL. I'm so happy for it! Yay! Thank you, girl! 


The sample the SA gave me. It really is a small container, just looks big in the photo.
I thought the amount given to me won't be enough. My experience with other brands of hair products usually required a handful amount for it to spread all over my hair. But with Kiehl's, a small amount of cream spread out easily! It covered my hair in a few applications! I only consumed half of the sample the SA gave me! Yay! 

The product is a white cream that is smooth to the touch! It gave out a slight heating sensation when I applied it on my hair. The smell? It is similar to a soothing ointment, you know, that old minty smell. But then again, most of Kiehl's products don't smell good so I expected that. 

The instructions only said to leave it on for about three minutes. Me? I went overboard. I put a shower cap on and left the product on my hair for at least 30 minutes. I don't know if it will make a difference but I like to pamper myself by doing so. LOL!

The result? On rinsing, the product came off easily. However, it left my hair stiff to the touch. Even so, it made my hair easy to comb. Wet hair didn't give me much excitement! But when my hair dried, I saw the impressive effects! My hair was smooth! Most of the frizz is gone too. However, the minty ointment smell lingers. Ugh.

The product is true to its claim! However, I think I need to use more of it because there is still a bit of coarseness on my hair. I still have bushy hair but it doesn't spread out chaotically anymore. That is a big improvement on my part! 

This is a before photo. Notice that I needed to use a lot of Bobby pins to tame my bushy hair.

Now here is the latest photo after I used Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak:

This product delivers! 'Nuff said. So will I buy the full sized bottle? Of course! Now this one, I will add to my 'things-to-save-up-for' list. It's a investment with a sure return on my confidence.

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
