luxe knickers

Who would spend £145 for a pack of seven knickers?

Uhm... my aunt!
She sent me this box of seven silk blend knickers from Stella McCartney. 

Cute right? I think its luxurious and very feminine too. But they're expensive. You can check them out at   Net-a-Porter. They also have the knickers of the week pack in black.

How much would you spend on knickers? Will you buy this?

new haircare products

I was inspired by Sophie, a beauty blogger, to check out Watsons for the these products.

Purebeauty Treatment Essence Water, Purebeauty Treatment Hair Care Oil, Physiogel Shampoo Plus (P715)

She mentioned good things about the Purebeauty Treatment Essence Water (with camelia seed oil). Also in the same shelf was the Purebeauty Treatment Hair Care oil, so I thought why not also give it a try. I think they also have a  shampoo with Camelia seed oil

The Physiogel Shampoo Plus, I bought in Mercury Drugstore, is good for those with sensitive scalp. I am always on the hunt for a good shampoo that will not cause itchiness and make my scalp dry. I hope I already found my gem.

Will be reviewing the Purebeauty hair products soon.

june empties

Last month, I was able to use up a few products. But they were mostly hair products.

The Face Shop Changpo Magic Straight Conditoner - i used it together with the magic straight shampoo. it smells really nice and makes my hair soft. But aside from that, it didn't do much for my slightly wavy hair. It cost around P300. Will not be repurchasing this.

Human Heart Nature Nourishing Conditioner (Peppermint & Mango Butter) - its 100% natural, 100% biodegradable, 100% no animal testing and no dandruff causing residue. It also smells great and leaves my hair soft. And for only P129.75, i  will repurchase when I've used up all my conditioners.

Coldwell Rich Repair - A 60 sec treatment for dry, damaged or stressed hair. Among the products I used, this has the greatest or I would say the yummiest smell. I used this every other day, and leave it on my hair for more than 1 minute and the result is great. It leaves my hair shiny and smooth. Im go glad I bought a few tubs when I was in the Netherlands, so I still have some back up :)

Thalgo Firming Eye Contour Gel (anti puffiness) - $58 for 15ml. I never actually noticed any tightening effect whatsoever. Im just glad that this was bought my my aunt for me. I will not be repurchasing. I still have a few products from Thalgo to try. I will see if some will work. 

Nivea Makeup Remover wipes - I sometimes find the cloth a bit harsh on my skin. I also dont like the greasy feeling it leaves my face. So this one, I wont be repurchasing as well. 

Although mostly were hair products, Im still happy that I was able to finish up 5 products. I'd say not bad for my effort and with the number of products I have in my shower. I'm still aiming to finish 10 products each month and hopefully will include makeup.

Have you tried any of the products I mentioned above? How are you doing with your P10P?

a little MAC haul+Nivea

A little haul from MAC..

clockwise: Nivea Sun Whitening Face Cream SPF50, Fix+, Blot Powder
You know my little disappointment about the discontinued Back2Mac program? Well, today, Im one happy lady..

Hubby got back from his flight and I was so happy when he told me that he managed to swap my empty pans for a lipstick. I was really happy when agreed to go to a MAC counter in the US. Although he is already used to visiting cosmetic counters with me, i know its kind of awkward for him to visit a counter all by himself. To make it easier for him, I gave him a list of lipstick to show the MUA. Number 1 on my list is Vegas Volt. So glad it was available. Aside from the lipstick, he got me 2 more MAC products.

Soft Ochre Paintpot, Beguille Brow Set & Vegas Volt Lipstick
l-r: Beguille, Soft Ochre & Vegas Volt
I've always wanted to buy soft ochre but its no longer being sold here. Its a great addition to my growing paintpot collection.

A big hug & kiss to my sweet hubby! ❤


And we're haulin.
