REVIEW ON PHYTO PARIS PHYTOCEDRAT- PURIFYING TREATMENT SHAMPOO FOR OILY SCALP


While most are complaining about how dried their hair are, I have problem with extreme oily scalp. I really dislike it whenever I have to see a hairdresser because the first thing that they will do is to complain on how oily my scalp is. I have more nightmares with hairdressers than seeing the dentists!

Next, the hairdresser will start their list of recommendations of products including dyeing to reduce the oiliness of my scalp. Of course dyeing hair dries out the oil on my scalp but it can also make me lose a lot of hair. What is the point of adding more to “the list of my oily scalp problems”?

Sorry that I haven’t mentioned about the hair and skin on top of my head because I was battling with acne and so oily scalp is just a mini problem which I ignored. Besides, who talks about oily scalp when they have all those gigantic pesky red bumps on the face?

Finally, I am here to introduce one of my favourite hair products which are really affordable for the effectiveness that these wonderful products can provide. It actually saves me the trouble, hassle, money and my tears (tears because I have to listen to annoying hairdressers).

Phyto's story began in 1969 in the countryside of Southern France. Legendary hair stylist, Patrick Al├Ęs, had a vision of creating plant-based haircare products using environmentally conscious methods. PHYTO offers the best botanical solutions for all scalp & hair conditions such as thinning hair, dandruff, sensitive, oily scalp & dry, damaged hair.


Their products are 95% from natural products and really safe for your hair.


Phyto famous products includes phyto 7 the first day cream for hair (1968) , phytophanere the first dietary complement to fortify hair and nails (1980), phytolaque soie first botanical spray with no aerosol (1989),phytocyane first age-defying treatment to revitalize thinning hair in women (1992), phytoprogenium the first intelligent shampoo (2006), phytokeratine all the strength of botanical keratin to repair your hair (2010)

What it is:
A treatment shampoo to purify and control excess oil.


What it is formulated to do:
This luxurious shampoo delivers deep cleaning and antifungal benefits. Recommended for those who tend to have oily scalp, it controls excessive oil production while preventing oil migration to reduce shampoo frequency. Hair is left cleaner, fresher, and fuller-looking.

Formulated WITHOUT: - Phthalates





Phyto Paris Phytocedrat is purifying treatment shampoo for oily scalp. It is for weekly usage or use it everyday for very severe cases. The shampoo is very runny so be extra careful during pouring. Pour it to the palm first before applying it to the hair and leave it for about 2 minutes before rinsing it off.

This shampoo smells really nice  with a light citrus smell and has a clear brownish colour to it. No artificial on the shampoo.  It does have a little foam but not much which is good because lots of foam doesn't mean it will clean your hair well.

  Here is the ingredients list.

I am actually very *shy* to release a photo of such oily limp ugly looking hair of mine but just has to show you how oily is my hair.  This is not even second day of wash.  It was taken after only 3 hours after the hair wash.

Please ignore my face with zero makeup.  Don't mind my eye bags.  Can you see that my hair has more volume to it? This is the second day after wash =)


PHYTO PARIS PHYTOCEDRAT
















This is highly recommended professional hair products if you have serious oily scalp like I do.

The shampoo treatment is really potent and works really well to reduce the oiliness on my scalp without stripping my hair off its oil. What I was surprised was Phyto offer treatment which is in form of a shampoo! 

Extra tip for oily scalp is you do not need those extra essence, oil or conditioner because it will just worsen the condition of your oily scalp.

I love this treatment as this treatment change the time that I need to wash my hair. Now I can go three days without washing my hair but still have bouncy hair! The shampoo leaves my hair silky soft. My scalp is also healthier and not greasy at all.  Now, I don’t have to waste money on conditioner and all I need is one bottle of shampoo to wash my hair. Think about the amount of time and effort that I can save with just using this Phytocedrat.


Now, no even one hairdresser said anything about me never washing my hair or having extreme oiliness on my hair anymore.




 Please check out Phyto other wonderful products that they offer. You name your hair problems, they will have the solution for you! This brand is way cheaper than some high end brands which usually doesn't have products for my oily scalp. Besides, Phyto are made from natural products.  *thumbs up* to Phyto for such wonderful hair products!


Products retails at RM99.82 for 200ml(excluding GST) . Made in France. You can find it in Guardian Online, Sephora and Isetan KLCC

SKIN TIPS: ANTI AGEING TIPS FOR 25 -35 YEARS OLD


The truth is we aged the moment we are born but the capabilities of the cells deteriorates faster once we reach 25 years old and above. Upon that time, most will notice that scars don't heal as fast as when they are in their teens. So, starting from 25 years old, we have to add anti ageing skincare products into our skincare regime for the fear of fine lines forming on the face. No one wants to age faster than they do.

ANTI AGEING TIPS FOR 25 -35 YEARS OLD


However, those whose age are in between 25 – 35 does not have the same skin structures as those who are 40-50 years old so using the wrong skincare products can harm and cause more problems. 

So, here are some tips to look out for choosing anti ageing products if you fall in between 20-35 years old.



1. Choose a moisturizer that is light
It is still necessary to use moisturizer but it is absolutely not necessary to jump immediately to those heavy duty kind of cream because it can clog the pores. So, use a moisturizer than is most suitable for your kind of skin type.

KLAIRS MOIST SOOTHING CREAM

2. Look for ingredients for such as retinol, vitamin C, peptide or snails
Adding ingredients that contains antioxidant or ingredients that can help heal the skin are really necessary to kick start the cells' ability to heal damage and replace the dead cells to have fresh new skin. Besides, these ingredients are already well known for their capabilities.
Currently, in Korea it is the horse oil ingredient but I haven't try any of them yet so I don't know what is the long term effect of using one.

*no retinol if you are pregnant or breastfeeding


Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum
SWISS LINE CELL SHOCK OVERNIGHT “V” MASK

3.  Start using a serum/ampoule/ essence
If you have not start using serum, it is time to add it into the skin regime as serum/ampoule/essence can really help in boosting the capabilities of the skin to renew. Not to mention that serum or ampoule penetrate faster into the skin and give faster effect than moisturizer.
This does not mean that you should use three serums at once.  Find one you like best and use for an amount of time to reap the benefits.

ANTIPODES WORSHIP SERUM

4.  Use a light eye cream
I was told that I have to start using eye cream once I hit 25 years old. Yes, prevention is better than cure. The eyes area are delicate so it take even more time to heal the damage once it is done. So, look for one that is light and penetrate fast to avoid milia seed.

A'KIN WHITE TEA&CORNFLOWER EYE DAY GEL

5.  Use a sunscreen or sunblock
This is a no brainer. The sun age the skin fast so try to avoid the harmful ray especially in the afternoon because it sure can age the skin fast.  Use protection or sunscreen to help block of the light. However, using sunscreen is no passport to be out in the sun the whole day.  The amount of spf can only last maximum about 2hours and then one need to reapply. Besides, one need to apply the sunscreen 1hour earlier before the product is able to ward off the UVB and UVA lights. Using makeup with spf doesn't mean you are well protected so do use sunscreen.  It is a long term investment for your skin.
CETAPHIL UVA/UVB DEFENSE SPF 50+ UVA 28


6.  Do not over exfoliate your skin
Do not over used all those scrubs and peeling gels just because the skin dead cells accumulate more on the skin surface.  It might just irritate the skin more and cause more harm.  Use gentle peeling gel or peels once a week because it helps to renew the skin.  Over enthusiasm  can just cause very red skin, sensitivity or more breakouts.  If you are already using ingredients such as retinol or vitamin C can exfoliate the skin, then you won't need peeling gels or scrubs.

SHILLS MANDELIC ACID SKIN RENEW ESSENCE


I hope the the skin tips here is useful for starting your anti ageing skincare regime.  You absolutely do not have to use whatever I am using because I haven't get to try everything.  It is not recommended to keep changing skincare too often as it can really hurt your skin.  Besides, your skin preference and mine might be different too. I like everything light and my skin is combination now.

The opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.  Again, I am not a dermatologist, medical doctor or professional chemist and my opinions here are based on my past experience as a skincare products junkies. I am just sharing my opinion here and please do not harass or shoot me with a rifle if there is any changes to the world of skincare products in the future. XP

REVIEW ON THEFACESHOP REAL NATURE MASK ALOE

THEFACESHOP is one of the famous Korean brands for their skincare products and makeup.
They have a few ranges of face masks and what I have here is the Real Nature range which uses natural products and doesn't have synthetic fragrance or colouring.


Here is the list of the sheet masks that you can use according to your skin types and concern. 

1) Cucumber:- It hydrates and vitalizes lackluster skin with cooling effect of hydrating minerals with no artificial coloring contained.
2) Lemon:- Brightens dull skin tone with Vitamin C with no artificial coloring contained.

THEFACESHOP REAL NATURE MASK CUCUMBER
THEFACESHOP REAL NATURE MASK CUCUMBER




THEFACESHOP REAL NATURE MASK CUCUMBER

20ml
All Skin Types

A mask sheet that has aloe extract calms down the sensitive skin and provides moisture.

Instruction:
1.  Use a toner after cleansing.

2. Place the mask sheet evenly according to where nose and eye areas are.

3. Take off the sheet after 15-20 minutes. Gently pat for better absorption



I guess it is a well known fact that Koreans love their sheet masks and they use it everyday according to their skin types and reason.  As for me, it has become a weekly treat or else I will be so broke because since sheet masks is a one type usage, it is also more expensive here.

Make sure to use a moisturiser after sheet masks to seal in all the moisture into the skin.


The sheet mask size is okay for my face size.  The holes for the eyes is for medium size eyes.  The mask itself is not too thin as it can hold a lot of essence.  There is a lot of essence inside the mask which you could use it to apply on the hands or legs.

THEFACESHOP REAL NATURE MASK CUCUMBER

Since it is a cucumber mask, it really smell like cucumber mask.  The smell is not too strong but one could smell it even when it is on the face.  My face sure become more bouncy and well moisturised after using mask.  My redness is reduced too.
Of course one can't expect miracle from just using one mask alone. That is why many do mask weekly and some even do mask daily in order to maintain the same effect.

So, do you use sheet masks daily or recommend any sheet masks that you love?




Products retails at RM6.90 per piece.
I redeemed it from this Muffin website. Registered and then collect points for reviewing products.  It is a free sampling Malaysia website.

NEWS:MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE LAUNCH IN MAY 2015

High-altitude meadows, wild moors, secluded woodlands…After years of exploring untouched natural areas and seeking out plants with remarkable benefits, leading French organic skincare brand, Melvitahas put together a unique bouquet composed of five white flowers.

:MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE




Melvita has placed this illuminating complex at the heart of its Nectar Bright range. Over the past two years, as many as five Nectar Bright products had been introduced in the market.

WHY DO DARK SPOTS APPEAR ON THE SKIN?

Over-exposure to UV radiation, as well as the passing years, can disrupt the process responsible fornatural skin colouration, known as melanogenesis. This complex cellular process is stimulated bylight: the more the skin is exposed to the sun, the more melanocytes produce melanin to protectit (causing the skin to tan). However, with age, the production of melanocytes can becomedisorganized and some keratinocytes end up containing too much melanin. This, combinedwith a slower rate of cell renewal, leads to the appearance of dark spots in certain areas.


INTELLIGENT FIVE WHITE FLOWERS HAVE THE CAPACITY TO HIDE FROM THE SUN TO PRESERVE THEIR RADIANCE

On top of the 5 white flowers complex with brightening properties, the new Brightening Concentrate formula contains a new extract in order to truly target dark spots. 

This extract is obtained from the brown alga Ascophyllum Nodosumand it acts at 4 levels of skin pigmentation, for whitening and brightening effect: 



AFTER ONE MONTH OF USE,
The complexion looks more even for
8 out of 10 women.***

REVIEW ON MAC MINERALIZE BLUSH JUST A WISP

Hi Beauties,

I am back again with another MAC makeup products review.  This time, it is their mineralize blush "Just a Wisp" blush.

MAC MINERALIZE BLUSH JUST A WISP
MAC MINERALIZE BLUSH JUST A WISP

I love the mineralize packaging for their blushes! So beautiful right? It has the black MAC matte elegant look on the outside.  The clasp is magnetic and really durable.

There is a plastic cover inside and the inner rim is glossy black which I really like.

Mineralized blushes are baked minerals refined into powder to provide sheer and pearlized shimmer look. The blush "Just a wisp" is of pale pink, has pearlised shimmer and it looks really great on fair skin.  It is for those who want healthy pinkish glow but doesn't want to know that they are wearing blusher at all.  It is also for those tend towards natural makeup.

This blush only need one swipe to get those pretty pearlised shimmer which differentiate original MAC to counterfeit MAC blushers.

You can even use it as pink eyeshadow too . The blush stayed put on my skin for about 6 hours before it faded a little. To last longer, prep your skin before that.





MAC MINERALIZE BLUSH JUST A WISP

I am very light handed here in applying the blusher.  You can see the cheeks here is brighter compare to my lower part of my face without the blusher.

If you have sensitive skin but still want to wear makeup, then do go for their mineralize range =) . It is a bit more expensive but sure worth the price as MAC product generally last a long time even with everyday usage.



Products retails at RM105 3.5g at MAC outlets and MAC online shop

FOOD: SKEWERED MEAT ( SATAY RECIPE)


Hi foodies,

It has been some time since I share or write about food. With the spike of price for almost everything (not for salary), I tried to lessen my activities outside now. Have to cut amount of shopping too.  Many are eating at home and bring food to workplace.


Today, just sharing a local Asian food that is popular in my country. It is called Satay which I have no idea where the words came from. It is basically a skewered meat. You can use more chilies if you like it to be spicy and different kind of meat. The one here is not spicy at all. Chicken meat tastes the best. You can also use beef but it will be hard which I don't really like.

REVIEW ON HERITAGE STORE 100% PURE JOJOBA OIL 30ML

Hi beauties,

There is so much type of beauty oil out there that we sometimes have no idea which to choose.

Today I am reviewing another beauty oil known as Jojoba oil.


Jojoba oil is from the seeds of the desert shrub Simmondesia Chinensis which grows wild in the south west U.S. and areas throughout the world. Actually, it is more of wax than oil.  There are many uses of jojoba oil besides for cosmetics purposes such as additive and it more shelf stable than other type of oil but less stable than coconut oil and castor oil.

The oil comes in a dark glass bottle to avoid the UV light destroying the minerals and vitamin E inside the bottle.

HERITAGE STORE 100% PURE JOJOBA OIL 30ML

SUGGESTED USE:
Pure Jojoba Oil is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin types because its molecular content is similar to our hair and skin sebum. Use it to nourish your complexion, cleanse clogged pores, remove make-up, soften skin, and massage your scalp. It quickly penetrates and moisturizes without leaving an oily residue.

INGREDIENTS Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil.

Eco-friendly & cruelty-free.
WARNINGS Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. If irritation, redness or discomfort occurs, discontinue use and consult a licensed health care practitioner. Dilute properly before use.

HERITAGE STORE 100% PURE JOJOBA OIL 30ML

The one I have here is the unrefined jojoba oil which appears as clear golden liquid with a slight nutty odour.  The unrefined one is colorless and odorless.  As for which one is better, it really depends on your type of skin and purposes.

The unrefined version is more suitable for dry and normal skin type as it absorb slower compare to the unrefined version.  You can also use it as massage oil. cuticles , hair and also as your body oil =) .


Heritage Store 100% pure jojoba oil is really nice as it absorb into my skin very fast leaving no residue.  I use about two drop for my face.  If you want a glowy sheen, then use about 4-5 drops of jojoba oil.  It sure helps the penetration of other products into my skin and balanced the amount of oil production on my skin after using it for about 2 weeks.  I do love the slight nutty smell.

You can mix the oil with moisturiser and apply it on the hands to soften the hands.  Some use jojoba oil mix with other oil for aromatherapy purposes. For those with sensitive oil, one can use jojoba oil as has the most similarity with our sebum compare to other type of oil.  It can help to trick our skin into thinking it has produce enough oil and thus a less oily face.  This is good especially for those who are looking for a way to reduce oil on their face.  I don't have any breakout from using jojoba oil on my face =).

Need more reason to use beauty oil? Do read here


Products retails at RM31.00 for 30ml  Here  .  Made in US.  They have castor oil and other type of oils sold.

The jar is made from glass. It is quite sturdy and heavy.  The vintage design has a nice warm feeling to it.


Aloe Vera is an ingredient known to heal skin and it is used since ancient Egypt. However, do check if you have allergic to aloe vera. I can’t use fresh aloe vera from the plant itself so I prefer the one already processed.


PHB Skin Restore Gel has a nice calming citrus smell to it. The texture of the gel feels more like pudding which is very light with a cooling effect even without refrigerating it. The gel dries down really fast without any stick feeling!

One can use the PHB Skin Restore Gel to calm sunburn or redness on the skin which is especially effective.  Just apply it thick on the face as face mask to reduce the redness on the face. After all it is organic and one jar can last quite a few months.  I think it is something that every house should have for emergency incase of burn or even sunburn.

Available at PHB outlets at Parkson Nu Sentral and  Fahrenheit, Jalan Bukit Bintang.

REVIEW ON ETUDE HOUSE COLLAGEN EYE PATCH

Etude House Collagen eye patch is different from the gel version.  The patch is quite big to hydrate the skin around the eyes.

Korean products always come in such cute packaging that you feel sad throwing away the package away after using.  This is especially true for Etude House which appeal to girl with all the pretty pink products.  So, here is this Etude House Collagen eye patch review =)

The Hangul words near the collagen eye patch means also collagen patch so don't need to worry if you can't understand Hangul (korean language).  There is English instruction at the back of the packet so that would be a big help.

There is a light scent to it but I can't smell it when it is on my eyes area.

It does help to hydrate the area around the eyes.  The patch is comfortable and cooling on the eyes.  It helps with puffiness and hydration. Overall, not bad as it feels cooling and good as a weekly treat or to hydrate the eyes fast.  Fine line is temporary gone because of the hydration.  Not sure if it helps for the wrinkles.




Products retails at $1.98 per patch. For 10% discount use discount code:welcome at the link Here
