Review: Shills Dust It Hair Powder & Other Random Stuff
I've been trying hard to stop shopping, but it's really hard for me to go on a beauty shopping diet! I tried to stick to only buying essentials in May. I didn't really succeed (as you can already tell) but I did buy less. :P
In my defence, there really isn't much else to do here in Singapore! Besides shop and eat, you can do sports. If you like sports, Singapore is really a great place to live in. It's summer all year round, beaches and watersports less than a 30-minute drive away, etc. I used to live just a short walk away from the East Coast beach and used to go walking there if I'm bored. But other than that, I don't really like the sun, heat or sweat. Lately, it's worse after I moved houses and am now living near the city, Instead of walking at the beach when I'm bored, I walk at the shopping centre! LOL!
Anyway, the other night, I meant to just stopped by Plaza Singapura on the way home, to pick up some groceries, but I just had to look in at the John Little 20% storewide sale as well. This sale has been happening so frequently that I don't get too excited by it anymore. Still, it's good to pick up stuff when there's a sale.
So I found some new things, and among them was this hair powder which I had to buy and try. It's working nicely for me! I find it fluffs up my hair without making it look stiff. I use it together with Air Arrange. Somehow it accentuates the natural waves in my hair but keep them very orderly, so I'm quite pleased!
It retails for S$24.90 at John Little Star Dust. With the 20% discount and the 5% cardmember rebate, this is relatively cheap, but I imagine it'll be "dirt cheap" in Taiwan? I really can't tell. I don't know how much it retails for in Taiwan.
Look at the hilarious language on the label. "Magical Hair Fully Powder"!! *so amused*
I have some updates on Kanebo. I went to my usual Kanebo haunt and told the SA that Blanchir isn't moisturising enough, then told her I've tried Revital and it's better. So she said Impress is a range that I can explore as it's a comparible to Revital in terms of anti-aging care but addresses a wider range of "problems" than Revital. I did a search on Impress and shall I say, "I'm impressed!" Check it out here.
I'm now leaning towards going for Impress, because I have good experience-history with Kanebo skincare and it has a wide range of items to address different issues. I'm waiting for the sale before buying some Impress.
Off topic, some of you know I scrapbook. I haven't been scrapbooking much in the traditional sense of 12"x12" layouts, because I have been really un-inspired and also very busy. I still want to do memory-keeping so I adapted some ideas that have been going around in the scrapbooking scene.
A new way of scrapbooking:
First I get a nice album (I use Muji's - I need to get mooooawwwrrr). I prefer slot in albums, they don't harm photos like those sticky ones with a film covering. (You might want to note that most of those sticky albums have adhesives that will cause your photos and other papers to deteriorate very fast, so avoid them if possible).
Then, I make the labels (this allows me some freedom for creativity and journaling, plus use my pretty scrapbooking supplies)
Finally stick in the photos! And I also label them with more journaling on the photos.
I like this way of scrapbooking for now. I might continue to make yearly albums this way.
