Sunsilk Damage Repair Sytem

I have a lot of hauls this month yet some of them are free including this Sunsilk Damage Repair System:

Sunsilk Damage Repair System

I requested for the supposedly ‘sample’ pack about 2 months ago, but I only received the package just this Easter Sunday. Our help said that the delivery guy was just using a bicycle. Maybe that explains it took weeks to get here. XD The package includes only the shampoo and conditioner. I wanted the serum, but I shouldn’t really complain because they didn’t send sample sizes. At least a sample size of the serum would have been nice.

FANCL Washing Powder Review

I just got back from Singapore with a paperbag-full of makeup. Oh yeah, the Benefit “Gee That Was Quick” Makeup Remover was confiscated from my carry-on bag because it’s liquid. Bummer. Anyway, this post is about FANCL, not Benefit.

I bought my FANCL Washing Powder 50g for SG$26 (P800+)  from Isetan along Orchard Road. FANCL is a Japanese brand established in the 7o’s if I’m not mistaken. I was amused by its novelty because it is powder and I have to use a foaming ball to make the powder into foam. So I bought it and only got to try it awhile ago.

Snapdragon lips

My Snapdragon lipstick is too dry and hard to apply. This is the only matte lipstick I have and it’s making me dislike matte lipsticks generally. 🙁 Such a waste to throw it away, I thought I’d do a little ‘test’.

Lavshuca RD-1 lipgloss review

As what I read from various beauty blogs, it’s true that Japanese lip glosses are flavorless and scentless. All my lip glosses are flavored and some are even scented. The Lavshuca is so alien to me. *lol*

Lavshuca RD-1

The color may be red, but it’s almost transparent with a hint of pink. I was right with my hunch that it won’t be like my Estee Lauder and Clinique lip glosses wherein the colors are visible on the lips like how a lipstick would be.

Etude House’s Proof 10 Eye Primer

It was due to browsing beauty blogs did I discover about Etude House. The name sounded familiar. When I saw Lee Min Ho in one of Etude House’s ads did I remember where I saw Etude House — a cm of theirs with him in it. I didn’t think they’d land into Philippine shores.

The cuteness of the shop had me sold. I asked Jan that we visit in their one and only (but not for long) store in Megamall. Being that I was very poor at that time we went there, I only got to purchase one item:
