This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_20200916_1124456015821281273617139.jpg

Hello lovelies…

Please be honest with me, ladies…how much do you care about your hair? As much as you care about you facial skin?

Well…I was!

I mean…why bother? I wore hijab to schools and till this current 8 to 5 job, I wear hijab to work.

I was born with a quite thick straight hair (I’m blessed). But somehow…my hair was dull, frizzy and coarse. Due to my negligence, my hair’s getting damaged and what worst could happened…they started falling out rampantly as I get older.

And until at this certain point, I started seeking out for help on preventing me from getting bald. I started eating healthy foods and distressed myself from works and life and most importantly…get enough sleep.

Yup…it works!

And to deal with my damaged and unmanageable hair, I started investing on a good hair care products. My look out for shampoos and conditioners which are free from Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), paraben and gluten. My preference is Verb Products brand, of course! (I did even blog about it before. Click here to read.)

As to top up my hair care routine, I pampered them with a hair mask. Yes, girls…hair needs to wear mask too!

So, I indulged myself into this multiple award wining Coco and Eve: Like A Virgin Hair Masque…which I never regret!

This hair masque is build in 5-in-1 formula that helps to repair my hair from inside-out. It:

  1. Revives dry and damaged hair caused by styling, heat, dyes and the environment;
  2. Restores hair to its pure state like it used to be;
  3. Repairs hair from the inside and out;
  4. Conditions from root to tip; and
  5. Tames frizz and split ends.

Aqua (water), cetearyl alcohol, cocos nucifera (coconut) fruit extract, dimethicone, behentrimonium chloride, parfum, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, sodium benzoate, ficus carica (fig) fruit extract, argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil, shea butter ethyl esters, caryocar brasiliense fruit oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, hydrolyzed linseed extract, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, phenoxyethanol, cetrimonium chloride,potassium sorbate, ethylhexylglycerin, selaginella lepidophylla extract, saccharomyces/silicon ferment, saccharomyces/iron ferment, saccharomyces/magnesium ferment, saccharomyces/copper ferment, saccharomyces/zinc ferment, tocopherol, lactobacillus ferment, benzyl alcohol, benzyl salicylate, coumarin, limonene, linalool.

This a simple tutorial on applying the masque:

My verdict: This is a savior to my damaged hair. This masque is a bit pricey, i.e MYR 180 (USD 43.58) compared to any other drugstore hair masques you could find in local store, but it worth every Ringgit! I started seeing result right after my first use. The results are getting better and better after several usage.

My! Oh! My!

I couldn’t imagine how amazing my hair would be after a month of usage! Probably as silky smooth as the mulberry silk 😉

The masque has a pleasant subtle sweet coconutty fragrance which isn’t overpowering. It lingered until my next wash. The texture is thick and creamy and has a good level of slip. It easily distributed throughout my hair with the help from the tangle tamer brush which was provided in the package. I’m over satisfied with this purchase and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to you, girls…if you want to stay away from hair misery.

5 Common Mistakes in Applying Sheet Mask

Hello lovelies…

A few months ago I blogged about a Korean sheet mask I discovered. I experimented the sheet mask on my face before I wrote about it. But, I just noticed that I had forgotten to share with you, girls on a few things that you have to avoid when you are using the sheet masks.

Yup, using a sheet mask seemed to be easy-peasy, but are you sure you are wearing the mask in the right way?

These common mistakes I’m about to share could negatively impact the results a sheet mask has on our skin.

  1. Wearing a mask without cleansing your face;
  2. Not prepping your cleansed face before applying the mask;
  3. Moisturizing your face before putting on the mask;
  4. Wearing the mask for too long; and
  5. Discarding the rest of the skincare routine after taking off the sheet mask.

Have you done any mistakes as I had mentioned? It’s time to change in to the right way, girls…

Althea A’Bloom Moisturizing Watermelon Sheet Mask

Hello lovelies…

I read so many reviews on the Althea A’Bloom Moisturizing Watermelon mask sheet from Althea Angels. The reviews are all too good to be true which lead curiosity in me on how effective this product could be.

And so…I purchased the masks during the 10+10 mask promotion thru the Althea website.

This mask is claimed to pack a punch of hydration and moisturization for a juicy chok chok skin that bounce. It has the power of deep hydration with a concentrated charge of ampoule essence. Each sheet contains 25g of essence that instantly fuels up & locks moisture by building soft moisture film on the skin surface.

This mask is suitable for all skin types. It is slightly acidic which helps to rebalance the pH level that has been damaged by the washing or peeling process. This eco-friendly mask sheet is made from natural eucalyptus tree. The texture is soft and and thin yet it won’t easily torn. It sits perfectly on to the skin like a second skin.

The key ingredients of this mask are Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract which is well known for water nourishment to the skin and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract that helps for calming. The other active ingredients are:

  1. Moisturizing: Trehalose, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate;
  2. Calming: Ocimum Basilicum (Basil); and
  3. Anti microbial: Acmella Oleracea Extractea Extract.

Every application leaves an intense hydration and cooling sensation to my skin. I noticed a few changes on my skin after several usages. My skin is getting slightly brighter and glowing. The mask scent is mild and very relaxing. It is the best to be used at night after you had a stressful day.

The A’Bloom fruits sheet mask is at retail for RM 2 (USD 0.48) and it comes in other fragrances too, which are:

  • Avocado: anti-aging;
  • Lemon: skin brightening and even skintone; and
  • Peach: anti-blemish and calming redness.
