New Space

So ….

I have decided to move from blogspot.sg to wordpress.com as i wanted to “start a-fresh” from my old posts and since i’m starting to do advertorial posts now, i find that it’s better if i start on a new space and also hopefully to settle down and move to a domain .com instead. so here it goes, a new space, a new page and many more posts

Kotex Luxe Ultrathin

I am a long time user of Kotex and i was really excited when they sent me their new Luxe series of pads!


and when i first open it i was so amazed, instead of usual white packaging pads, Kotex Luxe’s packaging actually comes in FOUR different colours!

The Kotex Luxe Ultrathin has improved in Four different ways 

1. Surround Lock Protection 

Specially designed to rapidly absorb and lock away fluid to help prevent back-flow so that your skin feels dry and comfortable 

2. Honeycomb Liquid-Locker

With surrounding embossed star-contours designed to help provide you with additional security and leakage protection.

3. Ultra Comfort Cover 

Specially designed to deliver both dryness and softness, helping provide the ultimate experience of a high performance pad. The honeycomb centre helped keep your skin dry, while the surrounding soft cottony surface helped provide intimate care for your skin.

4. New Packaging! 

Kotex Luxe Ultrathin Daytime – 24cm 

The daytime pad comes in 24cm and 28cm, i personally would prefer opting for the 28cm one as i always feel very paranoid regarding leakage wearing shorter length pads, the pad is also thinner compared to the previous kotex pads and other brands i have used which makes it more comfortable! thinner pads = easier movement for me! and even though it’s daytime i still prefer using overnight pads as it’s longer and i guess i feel more secure? the good thing is that the Kotex Luxe Daytime’s 28cm can also hold heavy flow! so yay!!!!!!!!!!! 

Kotex Luxe Ultrathin Overnight – 32cm 

Night Leakage has always been one of my most top worries and my most hated time during my period week because for some reason my pads would tend “move” sideways when i’m sleeping and the next morning i would be in a total mess! but the overnight pads absorbs 3x faster than my usual overnight pads so yay!!!! no more night leakage and staining of undies + bedsheets !!!!

and the next best thing is that the packaging is in a draw-string bag which makes it so portable to carry around when i’m out! 

The Kotex Luxe Ultrathin is retailing at $5.95 per pack!

Essential CC Oil and Night Care Milk

Have the Evil Hair Stress Brothers caught up with you at one point of your life or you’re just a person like me whom the Evil Hair Stress Brother catches up with everyday!

– Introducing the Evil Hair Stress Brothers –

 – and little more about them –

we all know that our usual bleaching, perming and dying of our hair can cause damages but our everyday hair routine (blowdrying, combing, pillow friction) and external environmental factors (air conditioning) can also put stress on our hair and impact our hair health and appearance and also damage our precious hair cuticle!

– Introducing Essential CC Oil! –

– The “CC” in the new Essential CC Oil stands for Cuticle Care.

– The CC Oil shares the same ‘multi-functional’ concept of BB & CC creams ????

– BB/CC Creams they gives moisturize, cover blemishes, brighten skin etc etc which ….

– The new Essential CC Oil -> 1 oil protects your hair from 5 stresses.

it also forms a protective coat around each hair strand and protects your hair from the 5 hair stresses, leaving you with more beautiful, less tangles and manageable hair.

But! what is the 5 hair stresses ????

1. Blow Drying (The Orange Hair Brother!)

    Damage Level 7/10 – Heat damage and causing friction from blow drying

    * The process of blow drying removes the moisture from both outside and inside of our hair leaving our hair dry, brittle and susceptible for further damage!

2. Combing (The Pink Hair Brother!)

    Damage Level 6/10 – Causing friction damage to our hair cuticles due to our daily combing

    * Combing through wet hair causes great hair damage as our hair follicle is at is most fragile state, the friction caused by coming through our dry hair can form hair knots which makes hair prone to unnecessary breakage

3. Split Ends (The Blue Hair Brother!)

   Damage Level 11/10 because i always have to spend $$$ to cut them!  – Fraying of hair shaft due to dry and brittle hair

   * The ends of your hair are the oldest and driest parts. when the protective hair cuticle is destroyed at the end of the hair, the hair splits into two or more parts

4. Hair Breakage (The Yellow Hair Brother!)

    Damage Level 7/10

    * Do you know that other seemingly harmless actions like tying your hair into a tight ponytail or twirling your hair with your fingers exert excessive stress on your hair (i’m so guilty of this!) which resulting in hair breakage

5. Dryness (The Green Hair Brother!)

    Damage Level : 9/10 – Dry hair that feels rough

    * Exposure to the sun, wind or air-conditioning can result in hair dryness, the hair cuticle that protects the hair is weakened and is unable to retain the moisture within the cuticles of the hair

Bonus! It’s small and portable which you can put into your everyday bag and have gorgeous looking hair throughout the entire day no matter how crazy your day is and it contains hair supplement oil which is similar to hair’s natural oil which gives you the shiny looking sleek!

Hold on!

Do you know that sleeping can also cause friction to our hair ??? it’s called the Pillow Friction 

What is Pillow Friction ?

– Pillow Friction are caused by us when we toss and turn at night, there is friction between our hair and pillow, causing the cuticles to be misaligned/

– Misaligned cuticles creates frizz, resulting in the fabulous lion’s mane the next morning (sounds familiar girls?)

– Washing our hair will ‘reset’ the mane which why many of us have no choice but to wash and blow dry our hair in the morning before we held to school or work but …. i’m sure some of us would rather have more time for our beauty sleep than going through this hassle and routine of washing and blow-drying in the morning!

– Introducing Essential Night Care Milk –

The Essential Night Care Milk ….

– Protects our hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand

– Prevent misaligned cuticles when our hair are rub against the pillowcase, leaving our hair more manageable the next morning!

* To be applied on damp or dry hair before going to bed *

I personally prefer applying it on my dry hair!

Both of the Essential CC Oil and Essential Night Care Milk are retailing at $11.90 each!
