BIORÉ UV AQUA RICH WATERY GEL SPF50+ PA++++

Do you apply sunblock diligently like me?

Did you know? Prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays without proper protection can cause permanent effects such as premature skin aging, wrinkles & freckles, as well as, various skin damages like discolouration, sallowness, dryness. In extreme cases they can also lead to skin cancer.

A 2014 Benchmark Survey commissioned by Kao Singapore revealed a surprising find – that only 30% of women between the age of 12 and 49 years old use a sunscreen daily. What is even more startling is that this number has remained unchanged for the past five years even with the introduction of more sun care products over the past few years. Based on this worrying trend, it is apparent that women in Singapore do not consider protection against UV damage a priority. This year, Bioré aims to change that!

bioreUV

For a start, Bioré has introduced its complete range of new and enhanced sunscreen products, offering the highest level of UV protection recognized in the industry – SPF50+ and PA++++ rating (previously PA+++). Bioré’s enhanced UV Series is your perfect shield against skin woes that could be easily prevented, like sunspots, wrinkles and freckles caused by damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Thanks to SampleStore, I received Bioré’s newest Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel, which provides the highest level of UV protection from head to toe! Continue reading

Your Perfect Solution to Combination Hair: Essential

I am the kind of people with combination types. I have “Combination Skin” with oily t-zone and normal cheek, and I also have “Combination Hair”! *pulls hair*

What is “Combination Hair”?
Hair that exhibits mixed behaviour like oily roots and dry ends is known as ‘Combination Hair’.

I am sure many people share the same problem as me. Especially for those of us in Sunny Singapore, we sweat so easily so we have oily scalp which makes our hair looks flat and oily. Also, for those of us who are fashionable people, we also do many chemical hair treatments that caused us to have dry ends!!

To solve our hair problem, we usually use two types shampoos to target the two problems:

  1. Light, clarifying shampoos target oily roots but cause hair ends to be dry.
  2. Rich moisturizing shampoos target the dry ends but may be too rich for the scalp, resulting in build-up that makes the scalp oily.

Well, I shared about Essential Deep Cleansing Care (blue) late last year! This time I also received the Essential Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) from SampleStore!!!! Thank you!!!! <3 Continue reading

How to Choose the Correct Treatment and Hair Mask for your Hair Type?

 

???????????????????????????

But now my heart went to the 30 second rinse off treatment!! 😛 Continue to find out more below.. .

What is Combination Hair??

The  concept  of  ‘combination  hair’  is  similar  to  that  of  ‘combination  skin’,  where  hair condition fro m the same person is not uniform from root to tip. People with combination hair usually have oily roots and dry ends.

Consumers  are  not  familiar  with  the  term  ‘combination  hair’  and  no  other  haircare brand  has talked about it. Essential wants to take this chance to educate consumers about this concept and bring to their attention that they may have this condition and new Essential is the solution to their problem.
Problems faced by Combination Hair
People with combination hair currently do not have one haircare product which they
can use to solve both problems of oily roots and dry ends. Using a rich moisturizing product to care for their dry ends usually ends up having too much product buildup on their scalp, resulting in a heavy, oily scalp. Using a light, clarifying product to care for their oily scalp will then cause their ends to be even drier.

As a result, people with combination hair will either have only one out of the two problems
solved, or they have to rotate between using a rich moisturizing product and a light clarifying product to achieve a balance.
Essential’s  Solution
P1190011
New Essential Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) and Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variants have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology
to target both problems of roots and hair ends. As a result, consumers experience the best of both worlds with one product: airy light roots and moisturized ends.
The New Essential has Microfine All Smooth Essence which delivers nutrients to repair
damaged hair surface from root to tip. Conventional technology concentrates mainly
at the roots only.
My hair feels surprisingly smooth when I finger comb through both my wet or dry. With the no tangled hair, water does not get trapped between the tangles hence the blow-drying speeds up! With smoother and faster drying hair, I have found the perfect hair care products!
Another thing to note is my roots doesn’t feel that oily at the end of the day anymore! Also my hair feels refresh, smooth and tangled free the whole day thanks to Essential! <3

P1190103

The new Essential haircare range is available from mid-September 2014 at leading supermarkets, hypermarkets, western pharmacies and personal care stores.
