The Body Shop Beeswax Texturising Wax

Just a quick post before school eats me alive again. EEKTHESIS >_<

I'm really not a hair product person, even though styling my hair takes up a good amount of my prep time before heading outside. I blowdry, I iron, and at the suggestion of a friend, put on some of this supermarket anti-frizz serum. This routine kept my hair properly in place in the past, but because of the really strange hot-humid-rainy weather nowadays, I realized I needed something stronger that didn't have the goopiness of hair gel. Hello hair wax!

At first I tried some of the stuff my brother uses, but I found it way too sticky. It also smelled too dude-ey. So off I went to The Body Shop, because I had a vague memory of a hair products section the last time I went there. (And also because most of their products smell nice HAHA)

Price: P450.00
Location Bought: The Body Shop Shang
Approximate Date Bought: last month

LOL, texturiSing wax. How very British.

Etude House Happy Teatime Aloe Tea Cleansing Foam

Price: P148.00
Location Bought: Etude House SM Megamall
Approximate Date Bought: June 2, 2010

Packaging: It's typical facial wash packaging. What I like about Aloe Tea is that it's much bigger than most commercial facial washes, saving you more money in the long run.
Actual Usage: I'm a Ponds person, and this works just as well for me as Clear Solutions Antibacterial does. Same texture, same squeaky clean effect, and of course, same no-pimple side effects. The biggest advantage Aloe Tea has over CSA, however, is its super awesome smell. AT's scent is just the right amount of aloe so that the overall effect is "Ahh, nature!" and not "Blech! Medicine!"

This is a fun product, but not something I'd buy religiously. After all, the more readily available Ponds washes work well for me anyway.

Etude House Post-enrolment Haul

After enrolment last Wednesday, I treated myself to some shopping! Some of you are probably thinking "What?! Etude House AGAIN?", but there's just something about that store's prices (and quality!) that make shopping there extremely gratifying. ♥

The return of the black background! I don't set it up as often
anymore because I end up taking longer to get the picture's
lighting just right. Yes, I am OC that way. :P
