I’m sort of writing this on the spur of the moment when I discovered realized three bathroom essentials that I find effective. Note that I have used these products for more than two weeks straight, hence earning their spot in my top bathroom essentials.
1. SKALA® MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL HAIR MASK
I know I have already mentioned this in my previous post, but for the benefit of my new followers, allow me to share with you the fact that I’ve exposed my hair to all sorts of abuse (for the lack of a better term) in the last ten years. While we’re on the subject, know that I seldom have my hair cut when I am fully aware that our hair should be trimmed every four to six weeks for maintenance. Having my hair dyed by a professional is costly in its own, so I settle for hair treatments that I can do in the comforts of my home.
I discovered this product from a former workmate who ordered the same at an online shop on Instagram. Another colleague got curious like I did, so we both ordered this and had them delivered in our office to save on shipping fee. Boy, were we surprised when we received our order because the tub was [unexpectedly] huge! It only costs between $10–$15 (including shipping fee), so it was an incredible deal! I have had this for six months now, and I still have about half of the product in there to consume.
The first thing I noticed in this product is its fragrance. It has a soft powdery scent that I really like; reminds me so much of childhood. Its consistency is not as thick as a typical conditioner would be like, but it’s not as runny as a shampoo either. I either apply this after I shampoo my hair or I use this post-shampoo & conditioner routine because why not? When I get out of the shower, I will follow it up with Organix Extra Penetrating Moroccan Argan Oil on damp (read: water-squeezed-out) hair to give my hair a softer feel and fragrant scent.
2. HAWAIIAN TROPIC™ AFTER SUN GEL
Like my concerns with my dry and dull hair, I have also mentioned about my issues on extremely dry skin. I noticed that my legs tend to get more dry after having it waxed. After about two days, my skin would develop red rashes and itchy that I tend to scratch my legs even while asleep. Waxing technicians recommend that you exfoliate after two days to avoid ingrown hair, and I fail at this miserably.
We got this in time for our honeymoon, and since there’s enough left, I thought of using it as a soothing gel post-waxing session. For the first time since I succumbed to waxing, I didn’t experience the discomfort I usually feel after 48 hours of undergoing a session. Not once did I wake up feeling the need to scratch my legs due to dryness. After sun gels are enriched with aloe vera and vitamin E making it an equally effective moisturizer to dry skin without the sticky feel.
To my officemate (and an avid reader of this blog), this may be a convenient alternative to your sister’s problem with dry skin!
3. THE FACE SHOP WHITE TREE SNOW EXFOLIATING FOAM CLEANSER
I have never really gotten into extensive skincare regimen until I decided to maintain a flawless skin in preparation for my wedding. I used to settle for just facial cleanser and water, but as my wedding drew nearer, I learned how to include facial toner and moisturizer in my facial routine. I think it took me six months to achieve a blemish-free face, but it was an effort to do so.
I learned about this exfoliating foam cleanser when I received samples from my aunt, and instantly fell in love it. It contains microbeads, making it an effective gentle exfoliating cleanser for everyday use. It’s now my favorite facial cleanser that also works well as a makeup remover. I tried to get hold of an actual product even before I ran out of samples, but it was out of stock in two stores I’ve been to. In my desperation, I ordered this product online, and had it shipped from Korea to the Philippines!
Has anyone else tried any of these products? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comment section below.
