Review: Cream Silk Fresh Hydration

March 26, 2018
If you follow my both my blog site, you'd know how much I've raved about Cream Silk conditioners. Like here. I've tried all variants and are happy with all of them. My favorites are Stunning Shine (gold) and Damage Control (Blue) variants. I know some people who enjoy the smoothness and silkiness Cream Silk provide but feel that conditioners weigh their hair down, making hair limp than usual. I personally don't have a problem with this as I need that extra weight to make my hair look less thick. But for those who do, the Limited Edition Cream Silk Fresh Hydration might just be your answer.

Designed specifically to combat summer-dryness, Cream Silk Fresh Hydration is the Customized Solution to keep your hair fresh and hydrated without the greasy feel for up to 24 hours. As the summer heat sizzles, can you imagine not having any hair to shield you? Your hair can't complain but it's what protects you from extreme heat. No wonder our hair gets so much drier and frizzy in summer!

I tried a tube of Cream Silk Fresh Hydration and the texture is definitely lighter than the other Cream Silk variants. I didn't have a hard time combing my strands, no knots and coils. I let my hair dry on its own to see how manageable it will be even without blowdrying it. Indeed, I didn't have unruly or frizzy hair that day! My hair felt lighter and bouncier than usual, and didn't grease up until my next shower the next day. It stayed true to its promise of freshness and hydration without the greasiness. The only thing I didn't like is the strong scent. I would have enjoyed my time in the shower more if it had a lighter and less powerful scent.

For a limited time, Cream Silk Fresh Hydration is available in all leading supermarkets, drugstores and online in Lazada at P109.00 (170ml)  and P197.50 (340ml).

Review: K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint

March 21, 2018
The comeback of the 90's matte lips trend right now doesn't resonate to me. I just don't understand why I'd choose dry matte lips over plump supple puckers. But the usual problem with gloss or creamy lippies is their longevity. The shine stays for an hour tops and the color, short lived.

Then K-Palette comes up with a 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint that gives us gloss lovers some hope. It's said to be a long-lasting and moisturising lip tint that is not sticky nor goopy.

It has four shades to suit your every mood: Glamorous Beige, Coral Peach, Rose Pink and Juicy Red.

The tint comes in a firm bullet that glides easily. Firm enough to be applied easily without the risk of breaking. The thicker texture as compared to traditional watery lip tint or stain makes it glide easily and more smoothly.

To really test this stain, I chose the darkest shade #04 Juicy Red. Lips are lightly stained with vivid color in a sheer gloss finish. I applied two layers to achieve a deeper color, as seen on photo below. 

The feeling is light on the lips, as if I'm just wearing lip balm. I'm impressed how vivid the color is given the texture it provided is like that of a balm. It took me four hours before I got to recheck how it stayed on my lips after I had a greasy dinner. The color wasn't as vivid but looks more like it's stained. 

My verdict? I love it! This easy to wear sheer lipstick is perfect for everyday wear. It gives a slick of effortless colour and comfortable moisturized feeling to the lips. My lips never dried the entire time I wore it, and I didn't feel like I needed to dab lip balm on my lips at the end of the day just to get some moisture back from the usual drying formulas of lipsticks. This K-Palette lip stain is perfect for those, who like me, want a fresh pop of colour on the lips without being too intense.

However, the longevity of this tint is its only con. At first application, you get a good dose of pigmented colour. But the gloss transfers quite easily, and the color slowly fades. What is left behind on the lips is a very delicate tint, which I personally prefer. But those who want a more intense color might get disappointed. 

For best results, lightly exfoliate the lips first to make color adhere to the lips better. Apply the K-Palette lip colour to the lips and blot any excess off the lips with a tissue. Reapply all over the lips to make it last longer.

The K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint is at P795 per tube and is available in Beauty Bar, SM Beauty Stores and Rustan's.


Strip White for Summer

March 16, 2018
It's just the start of summer and my face has already garnered some skin damage from the sun, thanks to our holiday trip in New Zealand and a weekend wedding in Cebu. Oh the cost of travel!

I was already pondering on what skin treatment to book when I received an invite from Strip Manila to try a session of their newest treatment, Strip White. It's an innovative procedure that revitalizes and whitens the skin -- just what I need!

Strip at the Mega Fashion Hall

This non-invasive rejuvenation treatment is done via a machine that promises to deliver textural improvement, pore size reduction, brightening of skin pigmentation, reduction of fine lines and facial hair/fine hair removal. 

3 major function of the machine:

1. Revitalization – Improves vascular activity by feeding oxygen to tissues and stimulates collagen regeneration thus revitalizes the skin.

2. Whitening - Suppresses/weakens melanin formation to lighten brown spot, uneven skin tone and pigmentation

3. Firming and Anti-Aging Effect - Reduces appearance of fine lines and pores and increases collagen production so skin is pushed upward making skin look firmer and younger.

Any body part is a candidate for the service but specifically, Strip White was designed to treat to treat the face and other problematic skins found in the most delicate and intimate (but often most neglected!) body parts such as the underarm, kneecap, elbow, buttocks, neck, stomach, bikini, inner thighs and Brazilian. 

As I've said, my face has gone through some noticeable skin damage so I opted to try the treatment on my face. I was excited to see how this treatment will help in evening out and brightening my uneven skin tone and dull skin. I had acne scars that I want to lighten and also fine facial hair that I want to be eliminated.

Do you see the immediate result? My face is a shade lighter after my ten-minute session. The Strip Specialist said results may vary according to severity of the problems and individual skin types.

Noticeable results can be seen after 3 sessions but like any other skin treatment it is necessary to maintain it every 4 weeks interval for the underarms and 2-4 weeks interval for face and other areas to prevent recurrence of skin problem and stabilize the result.

Strip White is safe for all skin types, except for those with specific health or skin conditions. The Strip specialists are well equipped to handle the delicate treatments and can recommend for all skin conditions.

I'm very much excited to go back for my second session to see better results for my face, and even try it on my more delicate body parts in time for summer getaways!
