KK shampoo

Farhanah, now you jual shampoo? Hehehehe.

But all thanks to her review on the Avalon thickening shampoo, I actually went to Watsons to check out the Avalon shampoo range. I couldn’t find the thickening shampoo she recommended but found an alternative instead:

avalon1-300x261

Avalon Rosemary Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner.

My hair loss boleh tahan jugak tau! Every time I comb my hair, strands of hair will fall off too. It was so bad that one day I got kind of depressed and told the other half that maybe I am suffering from an illness.

But after using this, not bad seh! Not only has my hair been volumized (haha!), it smells good, and feels really soft and silky. Before I used this shampoo, I read reviews online that the shampoo was overrated and it doesn’t do good to your hair so bo pian la, dah beli mah? So I used it anyway and boy, was I pleasantly pleased with the results!

There is hope for my hair!

This reminded me of the thickening shampoo I used five years ago. My ex-colleague and I used to rant about how our hair would take very long to grow to our desired length so in an effort to have long, beauitful, wavy hair ala-ala Fergie, we researched online and discovered this shampoo:

p-29427-39502-shampoo

But this Mane and Tail shampoo can be used for both horses and humans! We were initially apprehensive about the effectiveness of this shampoo (kepala kita sama dgn bontot kuda ke?) but cincailah, we bought it anyway because Jennifer Aniston used this very same one to make her hair grow at a faster rate.

I remembered using it for a few months – rambut tak panjang, makin lebat lagi ada! And it smelled weird too. So I stopped using it and decided to let my hair grow long naturally.

Maybe, if fate allows it (hahaha), I would wanna try this shampoo one more time! Bau kuda pun tkpe la. Janji rambut lebat hor?

fabulous.

So at 8pm just now, I had my waxing appointment at Fabulous Tan, located at Cineleisure. The other half was kind enough to send me there after Maghrib and made his way back to Al-Falah for Isya’ prayers. Initially when the receptionist told him that he would have to wait for an hour, I was scared that he would give me the killer stare because I had told him I would take only 45 mins (hahahaha liar penipu pembedek) but he gave the sweetest smile ever and said…

“It’s okay, I can wait for my baby.”

Nak pengsan please.

Fabulous Tan is on the fifth level while Eighteen Chefs is on the forth. Selepas wax apa lagi? Celebrate success and jemput makan! But I didn’t eat there just now because it was 9 by the time I ended.

Anyway, if you are planning to have your wax session there soon, do request for Joanne because she was really quick and she did it painlessly (or maybe it’s just me with high threshold for pain)! Plus, she’s quite funny too. Prior to this visit, I had purchased the 6-sessions brazilian package priced at $228 so each session would only cost $38, as compared to their regular price of $56.

For first timers who would like to try waxing or other services offered at Fabulous Tan, they do have discount smses that would be sent to your mobile phone and all you need to do is show the SMS to enjoy the offer.

I might consider going for their teeth whitening treatment before the wedding also. Hopefully it’ll still be $488 mid next year! At this very moment, I can imagine my Mum saying….

“BANYAK DUIT KAKAK?!”

pampering.

A week ago, my colleague asked if I was interested to join her for a spa session at Wayan Retreat because there was a 1-for-1 promotion going on. Being a spa addict (haha!) I immediately agreed because I haven’t tried any treatments from there. So yesterday, we went and upon entering the place, I was blown away.

The place was gorgeous!

Images from Google because I was too excited and forgot to snap pictures, bleargh.

My colleague and I both had the Ratu Jongras which consists of 45 mins body scrub & scalp treatment and 45 mins of full body massage. The satisfaction I felt was beyond words! The masseuse, Kak Nazi, was very professional and friendly – I wished the massage didn’t have to end, heh. Wishful thinking, hor?

Apart from massage and facial, they also offer mani & pedi and waxing services as well! All under one roof, super convenient kan? So gatal me enquired if they were able to do underarm waxing for me and they were able to! I is happy camper because the waxing lasted for only 10 minutes, yay.

I purchased this too:

Whitening plus anti-perspiration roll-on for $20. It’s halal too 🙂

They also have the pre-wedding package which I am thinking of signing up in December, InsyAllah!

While waiting for my colleague’s husband to fetch us, I expressed my desire to start a proper facial regime. My colleague was concerned because all these while, I was only capable in washing my face with a facial foam – and that’s about it. So she brought me to Kiehl’s because she highly recommends the products from there.

The sales lady that attended to me suggested that I take the basic ones first:

From left to right and in order of application:

1) Exfoliator (mornings)
2) Facial cleanser (nights)
3) Toner
4) Serum
5) Moisturiser
6) Sunblock lotion

Today was my first application and I must say, I really like it! The sales lady had also kindly gave me so many samples to try!

image

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, masks – I gave to my mum most of the samples and kept these two for myself.

I cant wait to try their whitening products next! Furthermore, Kiehl’s has recently made some revisions to their prices so that their products will be more affordable to the masses. It’s definitely a sign that I’d have to start looking after my face, body and hair so can give the other half a good kind of shock on our erm… First night together haha.

I also might wanna check out the Avalon thickening shampoo that Kahwin Kronicles recommended in her entry. My hair needs some major repair, pronto! on a brighter note, brazilian and half-leg waxing in the evening later at Fabulous Tan! Will update more on that soon 🙂
