I bought it because it smelled heavenly. I have a thing for citrus scents. Furthermore, I thought this shampoo would work great on my hair (oily scalp).
Well, it didn't. It lathered all right for me. I made sure my hair was sufficiently wet and I really worked the shampoo into my hair. The problem was that the shampoo did not wash out properly. There was residue and buildup on my …

For reference, I have thick hair that is very oily at the roots/scalp and dry at the ends. I use this once or twice a week to de-gunk my scalp. It does the job well, cleansing my scalp without stripping my hair. The packing is a tube, which is a heck lot more user-friendly than the screw-top bottles some Phyto products come in. Love it!

For reference, I have thick, generally straight, dyed Asian hair. My hair texture is ok, but I have a greasy scalp and dry ends.

I do love this product. It's a very light oil and absorbs quickly into the hair. When my hair is semi-dry, I apply about 1.5 pumps just to the lower half of my hair. It smoothens the ends and prevents tangling, which I'm very prone to. I feel that …

This review is also for the formula with the glycerin soap, with the cream-gel texture. Before using it, I had fears that it will irritate my sensitive, and VERY acne-prone skin. However, it is great on my skin. I love the texture, and how it leaves my skin clean, but without that squeaky-tight feeling. The cleanser did not clear up my acne overnight, but it went a long way in stabilising my …Read more

I thought I'll add the first review for this product. ^^ Before I start gushing about this product, let me describe my hair first. Asian, black, thick, and long. Greasy scalp, dry ends. Most leave-in conditioners are too heavy for me, and I detest anything that weighs down my hair.
That's why I like hair serums as they're much lighter. This product comes in a small 50ml …

Ok, as a toner for the face, I find this product to be too harsh. I have oily/acne-prone skin and I HAD thought that this toner should be good for my skin. First time I put it on, it stripped my skin so much that my skin actually over-compensated by producing even more oil! I literally could feel the oil building up on my face. Anyway, subsequent uses appeared to improve, when my skin adjusted …Read more

Feb/11/2010

Decided to get this body moisturiser on a whim. I like it a lot! It comes out as a thick green cream, but surprisingly sinks in really well into the skin. It leaves no greasy residue or after-feeling at all, which is a big plus for me because I absolutely detest the stickiness of lotions. The only reason why I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is because I don't think it's as moisturising …Read more

Love this product! It's a thick white cream that sinks into the skin beautifully and leave your hands feeling really well-moisturised. I also really like the earthy fragrance of the cream. The packaging can be improved; the screw cap can get really cumbersome at times. However, this remains one of my favourite hand creams!

This is my first holographic nail polish. I actually bought it on a whim off eBay, JUST based on the good reviews here! When I first applied it, it went on smoothly. I did only one coat because I just don't quite like the look of thick shimmer polish on my nails for some reason. So one coat gave my nails a nice silver sheen under sunlight.

That was it for that moment. I …

I was looking for a dark-green nail polish, and decided to get this one based on the good reviews! Well, I love it! It's my very first CG polish, and I am impressed. I applied it on my toenails and it went on very smoothly. The colour is a deep, rich forest-green. My only problem is that it seems to chip easily, but I shall not take off any lippie as I didn't apply a top coat, and …Read more
