EPSA DIY color Review

Hello po!
Here is a review of Epsa Color Bleaching in Blue.

1 25g sachet plus a bottle of developer (repacked) is priced at Php 75, bought in a neighborhood sari sari store.

review of Epsa Color Bleaching in Blue.

Ingredients:
epsa ingredients, epsa price,
I am guessing that Epsa is made in China.

We bought one pack. But we soon discovered that it wasn't enough. I asked hubby to get me a second one. Lo and behold it still can't cover the entirety of my hair. So for thick shoulder length hair one needs 4-5 packs.

I like that it has no strong chemical smell. Kinda smells like ube I think.

DIY Coloring your hair is pretty easy and cheap.
Steps:
1. Wear some old clothes you wouldn't mind being stained.
2. Wear gloves and a cape (to be honest, didn't use both, just moved very carefully).
3. Mix the powder and the cream developer in a PLASTIC bowl.
4. Using hair color brush, apply to hair, section by section.
5. Let it sit for 30 minutes or longer as needed.
6. Rinse off.
7. Enjoy your new look!

I felt some gritty granules while I was rinsing it off. Also my hands was discolored blue. Good thing that the stain washed off by the end of my bath. I waited 2 days before I washed my hair again.

Few days after, my hair was leaving blue marks on the towels and there was blue on the shower floor every time I would wash my hair.

See below, it only colored the bleached hair in the ends, the virgin strands at the top and middle did not turn blue. Best to bleach the hair first, otherwise the color would hardly show up!

I wash my hair every other day to maintain the color. I cannot go for many days without washing my manes because of the extreme pollution here.

After a month, faded hair color...

Color was changing- hues of violet, green, gray...
I was happy that many complimented  on how beautiful my hair looked.

Thanks for reading my review on Epsa hair color!

Avene Cleanance Toner Review

For its steep price of Php 1,610/ 200ml (hey, other brands of toners/astringents cost more or less Php 100), I would think that Eau Thermale Avene  Cleanance Toner is nothing short of a miracle.

Details:
Made in France.
Smells like baby powder.
Shake well so the white powder at the bottom will mix with the liquid.

eau thermale avene philippines price

Ingredients: Avene Thermal spring water, zinc gluconate, fragrance, glyceryl laurate, salicylic acid, silica, triethanolamine (TEA), among others. Full list below:

Avene Cleanance Toner ingredients

Around the first two weeks, I used this with the Avene Cleanance soapless gel cleanser and when it was empty, I switched to using an organic soap.

Likes:
  • Free samples of other Avene products when I bought it at the department store (TBH, I was sales talked into buying this, mabait kasi yung sales lady, gave me many samples).
  • Gentle relief for sensitive skin and does not sting.
  • Skin feels deeply clean after using.
  • Does not leave white powdery blotches on the skin (I can't use other brands of astringents with powder at the bottom in the morning because they leave white powder marks on the skin).
  • Gentle mattifying power but oil-free effect does not last long on my very oily skin.
Dislikes:
  • Expensive. 
  • Did not dry out existing pimples fast, nor prevent new ones.
  • The opening is in the top of the bottle. Twist the cap and a hole appears. The top is exposed to dust that transfers to my cotton ball as I dispense the contents. A flip top or screw off cap would be better. 
Avene Cleanance Toner Review
See the dirt near the opening? It goes to the cotton ball.
  • When exposed, the white particles hardened. There's one time I did not notice that they were clogging the opening, so I shook the bottle because nothing was coming out into the cotton and the liquid spilled on my arms.
  • Before buying, I thought it was organic, and got slightly disappointed to find it was not.
Will I buy again?
Nah, I don't think Avene Cleanance Toner is amazing. Well, for others, it may be. It depends with skin compatibility.

Thanks for reading my review of Eau Thermale Avene  Cleanance Lotion-Toner. :)

I am glad to finally be covering a SkinStation event. Many years ago, I have tried their facial/ diamond peel in SM Fairview branch when it was newly opened and also in the Binondo branch.

Way back in High School, I have been a Godiva skin care set user. I tried the soap, toner, cream, powder, lip balm, deo... I remember the green one for whitening and the orange for anti-pimple. Godiva has a high and potent concentration of licorice. It made my skin smooth, fair, effectively controlled the pimples and gave a pinkish tint to my cheeks. You could say it was hiyang to me. Godiva had since then been taken over by another company.

SkinStation (formerly known as Godiva Skin Station prior to rebranding), DERMAX Laser Center and Blushing Beauty Founder, Chairman and CEO is the amiable Mr. Fred Reyes.  I feel delighted to meet the award winning chemist in person after all these years!

Mr. Fred Reyes received the 2008 Achievement Award conferred by the Philippine Federation of Chemistry Societies and the 2011 Outstanding Professional Award in Chemistry from the Professional Regulations Commission for his achievements in the field of cosmetic chemistry!

Get Whipped- Sweet and Fun Sugar Wax and Scrub

Hello po! Until last year, I used to shave my pits because I thought it was economical (read: cheapest way to get rid of unwanted hair). But ever since I tried waxing, there was no turning back. I prefer waxing because hair re-appears finer and takes longer before regrowth than with shaving!

I opt to go to salons to get waxing done professionally instead of by myself since I think it's messy and I am squeamish with regards to discomfort.

I was used to the 2 kinds- the warm wax (aka hot wax) wherein they apply it with a spatula, let it stiff a bit then pull it off, and the room temperature wax (aka cold wax) that utilizes a cloth strip wherein the hair will stick to the piece of cloth. I was even able to try threading, though I feel that threading is more painful than waxing.

Whipped Sugar Wax & Body Scrub Salon

Recently, beauty and lifestyle bloggers were invited to experience Whipped Sugar Wax & Body Scrub Salon. Of course, I am looking forward to this since this will be my first time to undergo sugaring. I am familiar with sugaring and even watched home made ones on Youtube but to try this concept is new for me.

Whipped has branches in: 3rd Floor, Ayala Fairview Terraces, 2nd Floor, Commerce Avenue Wing, Alabang Town Center and 2nd Floor, Eight Forbes Town Center, BGC.
The facade of Whipped BGC branch. This branch that I visited is turning 1 year soon.

The place- with its pastel interiors- is so cutesy. Upon entering, I immediately noticed the nice fragrance wafting around the room and the pop music playing made me at ease.

whipped salon review

The staff is also courteous. The owner, Ms. Bing Fabi, must have had them trained well.

Whipped BGC branch has 4 rooms. This is the room where our sugaring session was held:

Sugar wax looks like this and is room temperature so no risk of scalding:

how to make sugar wax
Whipped uses Organic wax- sugar and lemon (or calamansi)

I tried sugar waxing for these 3 face and body parts- eyebrows, underarms and full legs.

sugaring salon philippines,
The ball of sugar wax is economical- even after it removed some hair on a certain area of the eyebrows, it can be used again for another spot in the eyebrows. But of course, new batch of wax per client and per part!

Eyebrows Sugar Waxing-

Procedure:
Sugar Technician wiped the eyebrows, then proceeded to sugar wax. The remaining hair that cannot be removed was tweezed, and it was also cut with a scissors for shaping.

Result:
Groomed eyebrows that look tidy and in style!

sugar waxing eyebrows
The redness subsided after a few minutes

Underarms Sugar Waxing-
Aww I am embarrassed to show a pic of the before- underarm hair was grown to 3 weeks prior so it looks eeww,,, so this is just the after.

Procedure:
Wiped first, then sugar waxing, pluck the remaining hair, apply cream (for finer hair regrowth and to lessen redness).

Result:
Yes my underarms got a little sore (mahapdi) after the session- maybe it got wet or sweaty because of walking- that I skipped applying deodorant the following morning. But guess what, my underarms didn't stink the next day! I guess it's because the dead skin cells and hair were removed, and so was the odor causing bacteria!

I mentioned painful because it is but normal- of course, what can we expect, hair is ripped from the roots!
I am amazed that it took about 5+ days before I noticed any regrowth of very few and tiny hair! I am satisfied because out of all my waxing experience I think this took the longest before hair regrew, so my armpits looked very clean and I can wear sleeveless!

Full Legs Sugar Waxing-

Procedure:
Wiped then entire legs was sugar waxed- from base of legs til the topmost near the singit (groin). The front (while lying on my back) and the back (requested to change position and lie down on my stomach).

Results:
To begin with, I am fortunate that my leg hair wasn't that coarse- I have seen some women's leg hair that are very dark and curly like a man's. (If you have those and you're reading this, a sisterly advice is to have them waxed ASAP because it doesn't look pretty; but it is still your decision and I respect that). I am glad that after this session, my legs are left silky smooth and I can flaunt them in my skirts! Even after more than a week has passed, yet they look virtually hairless.
