Review: Tsubaki Hair Oil

Bonjour Bella!

Do you have dry, frizzy, dull, or limp hair? I’ve discovered a new product that will make your crowning glory shine beautifully!

Introducing Tsubaki Hair Oil, a deeply penetrative hair oil formulated with a high concentration of selected camellia oil (from the Goto Islands in Nagasaki) which deeply protects, moisturizes, and repairs hair resulting in a luxurious shine.

Some of you might be wondering… Of all the oils, why camellia oil? Based on the Hair Institute data, hair becomes so much shinier, smoother, and stronger with camellia oil.

So why do we need hair oil at all? Why can’t we just shampoo, condition, blow dry, and comb our hair as usual? Why the need for an extra step?

Some of the reasons why our hair gets damaged is because of too much exposure to UV rays and to heat from hair dryers. Tsubaki Hair Oil protects hair from those harmful elements while at the same time preventing split ends and hair breakage. Because of these, it has helped me lessen hair fall–even a little bit! I love it!

Review: Activa Well-Being Detox

Bonjour Bella!

Being exposed to pollution, chemical additives, and stress, I often feel tired and weak. In an effort to relieve stress, I tend to overeat. Because of all these things, I often have constipation. :-( Toxins build up and clog some vital parts of my body. In the end, I get easily tired, look haggard, and easily fall sick.

I realized that its time to do some detox.

Activa Well-being Detox

Two weeks ago, I started a detox program using Activa Well-Being Detox. I know most of you have never heard of this brand before. Honestly, I only got to know about Activa last April when it was included in the April 2014 Bellabox.

Last month, I met Jade from Activa who enthusiastically introduced the brand and its whole line of products to me. Since we share the same health philosophies and since I got really intrigued with their range of products, I decided to try their other products as well.

Review: Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask

Bonjour Bella!

Are you looking for an easy and fun way to hydrate and revitalize your skin while you sleep?

I’d like to introduce Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask.

My night ritual involves removing all traces of makeup, cleansing the skin, and applying moisturizer. Having combination skin, I prefer lightweight moisturizers to hydrate my skin. I rarely use masks because I find them very troublesome to use. So when I found out about this sleeping beauty mask from Bio-essence, I immediately wanted to try it. Thankfully, SampleStore.com sent me this wonderful product!

Review: Zaine Skin Set

Bonjour Bella!

WARNING: This post is very long! Just very happy to share something beautiful! :)

Ever since I arrived here in Singapore, my skin has worsened. When I was in the Philippines, I rarely had pimples! But now, look at my face. :-( Most of my pimples have disappeared already. But when it’s the time of the month, they start popping up again. I am just so tired of having acne problems, pimple marks, and skin discoloration. I want my healthy, glowing, and clear skin back. Yes, I am desperately in need of a solution.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Bonjour Bella!

You’re probably seeing a lot of people doing the #IceBucketChallenge on social media for the past few weeks. The challenge has gone viral! My Facebook News Feed is flooded with it. I never thought I’d be in the middle of it until my sisters nominated me. I was actually thinking of just ignoring it but I took it as a good opportunity to spread awareness about ALS.

The challenge involves posting a video of you pouring a bucket of ice water over yourself and nominating 3 other people to do the same within 24 hours. They can either accept the challenge or make a donation to the ALS charity of their choice, or do both.

If this is the first time you’ve heard about the disease, ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease) stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

As defined in the ALS Association website:

It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons  die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

In simple terms, it is a disorder that affects the function of the nerves and muscles.
