Shiseido Super Mild

Hair problem is an everyday dilemma :( Looking for the right hair care like shampoo, conditioner, mask, etc. is not easy. Finding one is a eureka moment :) That was how I felt when I met Supermild :) I bought a set of Supermild that consists of the shampoo, conditioner and hair mask last May. And I'm happy to report that I'm done with both the shampoo and conditioner. I still have the hair mask around 1/4 remaining. The shampoo and conditioner lasted for almost 3 months. Since I have already reviewed the conditioner, I'll just share my thoughts on the shampoo and mask.

Super Mild Series (don't mind Biore... hehehe!)

My say (for both shampoo and mask):
Performance: 5/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 4/5 stars

Love, love, love this! It does wonders to my hair. It keep those oily and ugly dandruff at bay. It does make my hair smooth, manageable and a bit shiny. This isn't too moisturizing which works well for my hair since it is more on the oily side but there are times my hair feels dry and when I used this it brings back moisture to my hair :) Though it is also good for dry hair but then if your hair is too dry, I think this won't work well with your hair. I love using the mask especially when my hair starts to become itchy. It does help in soothing my scalp and do remove dandruff on your hair plus giving you a smoother and more manageable hair. I usually pair it up with an anti-dandruff shampoo which is usually Head and Shoulder. I got the huge bottle(600 ml) but there are smaller bottles and refills available. I bought the shampoo and conditioner at Php550 each while the mask is around Php400 from the TLC shop. However, they don't seem to have pre-order for this lately and that made me sad because I can't find this locally and I can't find sellers for this :( If you know anybody selling this, please do tell me :)

Happy Weekend!

O Hui Clear Science Gentle Face Scrub

These past weeks my skin doesn't cooperate much with me. Tired and dull skin has been haunting me for awhile not until I met O Hui. O Hui is a Korean cosmetic brand under the LG DeBon. It is a premium cosmetic brand that promotes beauty of modern people by bringing together the principles of cosmos and nature and modern science and technology.

O HUI Clear Science Gentle Face Scrub acts in two ways to provide more effective care for the skin. It acts as a scrub for fine impurities on the skin's surface and inside pores and as a scrub to remove dead skin cells. The flavonoids from lily juice contained in the soft gel provide astringent and moisturizing effects for a low-irritation peel and help keep the skin radiant and translucent. (source)

My say:
Performance: 5/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 3/5 stars

I love this facial scrub! It really does help in scrubbing those unwanted dirt and dead skin. My skin feels so soft, smooth and refresh. I felt that it revealed a new me :) I got a sample of this but this comes in a plastic-tube type container. Since this brand is considered luxury, then I believe this is expensive. But I don't know how much it really costs since its hard to look for an online seller of this. Though I found one which is a US-based online shop and this is sold at $39. I'm still looking for an online seller that sells this on a reasonable price :) (goodluck to me finding that person!)

Etude House AC Clinic Toner

I know I've been MIA for a month. Too much work kept me busy with life. Hopefully, I could regularly visit my blog from now on. Anyways since its past I have to move on and share to you today one toner that help in decreasing those nasty zits. Introducing the Etude House AC Clinic Toner...

  •  Formulated with Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract, AC Clinic Toner clarifies and soothes troubled skin for moist, cleansed sensation all day long.
  • Non-Comedogenic 
  • Dermatologist Tested
Active Ingredients: Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract

My say:
Performance: 4/5 stars
Packaging: 3/5 stars
Pricing: 3/5 stars

I love this toner because it does help in decreasing those pesky zits. Salicylic Acid does help in fighting bacteria that cause acne. I'm glad that I'm not allergic to it for this product works well for me. I used this in the morning since I'm using another toner at night. No tight-feeling nor stinging sensation after or while using it. It helps in drying out those ugly zits and calms my troubled skin. I don't like its huge glass-bottle container because I'm always on alert while holding this for I'm afraid I might dropped it. It's kinda heavy to bring along so I don't bring this with me when I go out of town or on vacation rather I transfer some of it on a small container. But I wish they just come in a plastic bottle so that even when I'm on my clumsy days it won't easily break (hehehe!). I got this on a steal price from a gtalker. She seems to be selling some of her unused stuffs and this is one of them. This comes with the facial foam and both are just Php 200! This is sold more than Php400 at Etude House stores here. So when this was sold in an amazing low price, I immediately bought it :) I think Korean products are over-priced outside Korea.

It's good to be back in my cyberhome :)
