Answering Some Questions and Shampoo Reviews
Answering Questions about Lunasol ning*star asked how much is the Lunasol Anniversary set. I'm having a hard time replying at ning*star's blog, it hangs on me, so, I'll post here, it is $155SG. Also there are other questions about Lunasol, so I thought maybe it might help others too, so I'm posting answers here. The palettes in the set are stuck to the tray, they don't look removable to me. And from what I know, Lunasol is available in Singapore only at the Takashimaya Kanebo counter. I'm so tempted to go back to Lunasol to get the anniversary base makeup set. I also want to get the Maquillage and P&J base makeup. But I've not even finished using my BB cream. Shampoo Reviews I've used several new shampoos recently after my old ones are finished. I'd like to tell you about them. My scalp is oily, my hair is limp and thin, so I always try to find shampoos that cleanse the scalp, is not too drying for the hair and can provide volume. I also shampoo daily because of the weather and I don't like having styling products in my hair when I sleep. Fekkai Protein Rx I used this shampoo for 4 days in a row and felt my scalp getting clogged. It was too rich for me for daily use. So, I decided to use it as a "treatment" shampoo and conditioner once a week instead, together with the conditioner. This is better for my hair. It prevents the hair from becoming dry but doesn't leave residue from overuse. Skin Food Oriental Shampoo Skin Food says this is a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) line, that contains seven healing herb extracts known to be effective in hair loss prevention and hair growth facilitation. Provides moisture and nutrition to the scalp resulting in a more silky and voluminous hair. You're supposed to leave it on for more than three minutes after lathering so as to allow absorption of the healing herb into the scalp, but I don't do that. I just shampoo, leave it in while I wash my body then rinse off all together. It's quite expensive, but I'm happy it works. It's good because it cleanses the scalp but moisturises my hair and provides volume. It says it prevents hair loss and helps hair growth with the addition of Oriental herbs. I like the smell. Skin Food Salt Mineral Hair Wash According to Skin Food, this shampoo is for deep cleansing oily scalp. It contains salt and seaweed extract that purifies the scalp and controls excessive sebum and oil. This product has a lemony fragrance. I use this for deep cleansing when my scalp feels clogged and gunky. It has large grains of salt in it (I think that's the salt). It's good for scrubbing the scalp but I have a hard time getting all the grains directly onto the scalp and often find some grains on the bathroom floor - wasted! It's a bit strong so I wouldn't recommend it for daily use as I think it will strip the hair dry and make it brittle. Conclusion Overall, I'd say I was pleasantly pleased with the Skin Food shampoos. My hair didn't fall out alot, unlike times when I tried other shampoos, like, sadly, the Lush shampoos I used before. They made my hair fall out alot. I'd like to try another Skin Food shampoo I saw, Hop Beer Shampoo, that is supposed to be for preventing hair loss and greying. Wouldn't mind trying other Skin Food products too. So far I've not tried their products at all. I'm keen to try their body products. Now, this makes me want to go shopping in Seoul ... and eat eat eat ... © Copyright. All rights reserved.
