Highlighters -Becca - Mermaid Loose Shimmer Powder
aizen 10/6/2010 12:02:00 AM
always wanted to try this powder.( in fact I wanted to try all becca's shimmer powder ) but somehow I was hesitate to buy Mermaid because I couldn't imagine the color at all. and bit afraid that it might be too beige or gold as I'd later to have a powder cool tone and silvery.( I am cool tone & pale skin & has little reddish tone ) I did read every body's review over and over again.finaly I got it ! now I am glad to get the mermaid. yes, it's looks like kind of gray or greenish <- it's difficult to describe to the color. I am sure the color looks not attracted at all. but once it's apply on the skin. wow!!!it's takes a way my redish tone part of my face. makes my skin even tone. however it's too much gold tone for my skin if I wear it at day time. but very beautiful to wear at night time. ( <- my case.) I am glad to bought it ;-)
Highlighters -Becca - Gypsy Pressed Shimmer Powder
aizen 10/5/2010 11:46:00 PM
I am big fan of Becca pressed shimmer powder and loose shimmer powder.so far my fav is the nymph. I had to try the Gypsy since I am really in love the Nymph.so I just wanted to see what's like ? I am cool toned with pale skin & Asian. I was looking for something pale pink shimmer powder which don't have any glitter or something not too much shimmer to apply on a blush. I did try Dior's rose amber. it's beautiful and cool tone shimmer pink. however, somehow I feel not right with the color to my skin. it's bit too light like I can tell it's there. so I decided to Becca's gipsy. now I am in love the Gypsy !! it's not too much and more calm dawn than the Dior Rose Amber. ( since I am in the 40', I don't want to be wanna be young look) my ceek more pop up when I apply it on the blush. also I apply much more in the night time.<- all depends on the light condition. if you go to darker place, it's might be not much shown. in the case Nymph or KO's candlelight is beautiful. I would not much recommend to people if have strong yellow tone. it's can be make skin dull ( if your skin tone is very yellow tone) I would recommend to any body who have cool tone for apply it on the your own pink tone blush. it's makes your skin beautiful.
I got 6 of this as gift from very nice Muer fron hair care board ;-) OMG!!! I love this Turbie twist much better than Aquos microfiber towl (which cost me around $18. and I don't like it much ) about Turbie Twist , it’s made of 100% cotton terry and hold hair and head very well.I use this after wash my hair for about 30min to an hour. less blow drying it so less damage the hair. I saw $9.99 for 2 pack which 100% cotton velour one. also $14.99 for 2 pack ,terry towl , pink/hart design one. so far I washed it 10 times. still in very good shape.

I have very sensitive scalp. this conditioner made my scalp sore & itchy next day. ( didn't make sore right way after used it) however my scalp is too sensitive. so it's still good conditioner if people who has sensitive scalp with many ingredients.
there is not so many choice if you are looking for shampoo which not contain perfume, essential oil ,SLS. pretty much your choice is Free and clear or DHS clear shampoo. this shampoo makes my scalp bit itchy and sore next day. however it's so populer around sensitive scalp people. if you have senstive scalp and looking for a shampoo which no contain any perfume and essential oil, I would recommend to try it.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - free and clear conditioner

I am very mix feeling with this conditioner.I am using free and clear shampoo and I love it ! but this conditioner males my scalp itchy sometimes.
very nice muaer recommend me this shampoo for my sensitive problematic scalp. wow!!! my scalp is NO Itchy & NO sore & NO more Oily roots & No more hundred shedding a day. I just can't believe that one shampoo could change the much with my scalp which had been problem for long long time. I would never know this shampoo if the Muaer didn't recommend it to me.I would strongly recommend to people who has sensitive scalp. to me the price is not expansive to considerate to going to see Dr and try to keep hundred product's. I 've tried T-sal. Nizoral, Nioxin. Selsun Blue, DHS cor tar shampoo many salon brand product's. ( some of them are good, but if I use it too often I get itchy and sore) I did try lot of shampoo ** natural and SLS free** however my scalp is very sensitive with essential oil , end up I got allergic reaction with those natural ingredients . I got it at CVS ( by special order at pharmacy ), however dermastore seems more chaper. Add, I am still using this shampoo and haven't react yet. however only one thing I don't like this shampoo is contain PEG 12 Dimethicone which is silicone-based polymer . I don't have allergic with silicone, however I don't want to use it in my shampoo. about PEG12 Dimeticone is http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ingredient.php?ingred06=704504 and Free and clear shampoo is http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/product/215474/Free_%26_Clear_Shampoo_for_Sensitive_Skin_%26_Scalp/
OMG!!! this spray give my hair really shine!! I've looking for something give my hair shine but not makes my hair weight down. I am tipical Asian hair ( fine with lot , jet black) I've tried Fekkai glossing cream. moroccan oil. Biosilk. pureology. agdir argan oil.K-pak ( oil. Ummm I forgot the name right now) aquage silking oil. kenra platinum silkening gloss, paul mitchell skinny serum,Oribe shine cream Oscar Blandi jusmine oil etc. however this one is the Best ( I know each hair is diffrent but for my hair this is the one) I never had attentione Alterna item because I didn't like cavier line. also I just didn't like the bright orenge color bottle . one day I complained to my friend whom hair stylist that no matter what I try,nothing can make my hair shine like what I want to . some product's give me shine but not the lot. so I just gave up because I thought my hair is so dameged, but he told me that my hair is no the much dameged, just need to find *right product* and told me try Alterna hemp seed shine spray. now I love this spray a lot !! I do use lot of kind shampoo and conditioner ( as routine ) after s/c. I apply L'anza trauma and Kerastase NT or ChromaT. air dry ( or dry hair by dryer with low heat about 80% ) then go bed. ( or I use oleo relax ,depends on my mood) next morning my hair is so bounce and silky but only shine crown area to middle of my hair ,less shine middle to the end. so I do 2-3 spary's this hemp seed shine spray then comb well , my hair is soooooo shiny .
already everybody has wiriting sucn nice review.so I will make my review short. I don't know why I didn't try Nectar Thermique before I spend $$$ on other product. I guess, there is lot of Kerastase salon in my country.so I just feel Kerastase is something special. also I did try one product from kerastase which even I don't remember the name. about week ago. Nice muaer from hair care board sent me sample. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Happy with the result. add my hair is in good condition as no damage much. so I don't use it often anylonger because it's makes my hair too soft like butter soft.
I don't use Iron so I don't know what result like with iron. I do blow dry my hair with National ( Panasonic) hair dryer without brush. just blow dry about 80%.then let my hair air dry . after 100 % my hair dried. I use this glossing mist about 3spray's for my BSL length.this mist gave my hair shine without being greasy or weight down. I love this mist and agadie oil spray for shine. add for shine. I love Alterna hemp seed shine spray much better.

I was not thrilled by Pureology product's, don't know why?? maybe I don't see the name at Hair care board often. I bought sample size l bottle of this serum. I used it after wash my hair with PM tee tree S/C.I did apply on my towl dried hair. then just quick blow dry ( no brush ) after my hair 90% dried I add Kerastase oleo relax. my hair become really smooth as silk no freeze at all & so bounce. no gressy or weight down looks. now I am so intresting other pureology item's, my hair is just little coarse, medium thick & freeze. little dameged from color. it might be weight or makes flat if you have fine hair. Add, for make shine. I love Alterna hemp seed shine spray much better, however this one make my hair bounce ( but I have to use some shine spray )

Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Agadir - Argan Oil Spray Treatment
aizen 4/10/2010 12:12:00 PM
this review is for Agadir Argan Oil *Spray* Treatment. NOT the Agadir hair oil which called Moroccan gold miracle Oil before, but it's forced the name change to the agadir. I did try Morrocan oil however it's made my hair gressy and weight down & scalp itchy. I found agadir oil at beauty store, I asked to sales person that what is diffrence between moroccan oil and Agadir oil. she told me that no any diffrence. however I read somewhere that Spray virsion is much lighter. so I bought it. I am glad to got it. it's much much lighter than moroccan oil and easy to apply on my hair because spray type. it's makes my hair shiny and bounce ( I use it with Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil) I only 2 push spray for my BSL length hair. so far it's my best fav product. Add, Alterna hemp seed shine spray is not only much much ligther finised but so shine.I would use this agadier at winter time.

I've been looking for something make my hair shiny and Bounce.( I don't want to staraight because I don't want to my hair weight down or flat,)I always looking for a hair care product make my hair not just shine but bounce. this Joico oil ( I use one pump )+ Agadir Argan Oil Spray Treatment ( use this 3 spray) made my hair wonder! and looks like I have beautiful hair from bigining. I apply both ( agadir and Joico) on wet hair after I wash my hair ( when hair has still has water from shower) then towl dry. then about an hour later I blow dry hair. for fine hair people I would try sample at first. add I don't use it any longer. my hair got very soft nowdays. I guess that because don't have mush damage. so heavy serum cause my hair weight down. ( as morrocan oil too )
Shampoo -Nioxin - Scalp Recovery Medicating Cleanser
aizen 3/6/2010 11:37:00 PM
I decided to try this shampoo after I read JCuevas04 's review. my scalp tend to get really oily and itchy ( no dandruff) if I don't wash hair everyday. however most shampoo made my scalp irritation. ( also I have very senstive skin too, react with many skin care & hair care product) this shampoo doesn't gave me any problem. I am so happy with it. also I am using conditioner & the serum ( only sometime) too.I am so thankfull to JCuevas04 because if I didn't read her review I would never try this. Add, I have to take couple lippie... after I've used for couple month. my scalp getting dry and tend to senstive. I think the zinc is too much for my super sensitive scalp. however this shampoo must be good for someone who has oily and no sensitive scalp.
