[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:

After photo. See the huge difference!
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.

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!
