Review : Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi Everyone!

It’s been a long while! it really has!
I’ll update about my life again in another post (maybe since there’s really nothing interesting), as for today, as you can see from the title above, I’m gonna do a review on one of my new purchases.

Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner

Someone asked on Garner Singapore’s FB page regarding this range and they mentioned that they don’t carry it. So I’m guessing you can’t get this product in Guardian/Watsons or any major super and hyper markets.
I got mine at Venus, kinda like a beauty wholesale.

I’ve been using this product for almost 2months now, and so far I’m loving it. I’ve been washing my hair every other day before using this range. Ever since I’ve started using this, I’ve been washing my hair everyday. This product is to deep condition and give really smooth and sleek shiny hair, and it also contains organ oil. From my experience, if I skipped one day of not washing my hair, my scalp will feel really itchy/dirty and really uncomfortable. I usually won’t even wanna touch it if i didn’t get it clean.

But that’s probably the only con I have for this range.

Let’s start off with the shampoo.

I don’t know if you can see from the photo. The shampoo comes in a transparent thick liquid. Kind of made me think of the kids glue we use when in Primary School.
Comparing this with many other shampoos I’ve used, I find this shampoo pretty runny to work with. When I just started using, lots of product flow out from the bottle since I didn’t know how to control it and my entire head becomes extremely foaming and soapy. But after working with it for a period of time, I kinda manage to estimate how much I really needed!

If you have shoulder length hair and really like the shiny, smooth sleek feeling. I think just by using this shampoo will do the trick. Just with the shampoo alone, I notice my hair feeling softer and smoother after wash.

Because my hair length is around my chest area, I follow up with the conditioner after rinsing the shampoo out.

The conditioner is a lot thicker and much harder to pump out of the tube. It’s like a hair mask texture. To me, it doesn’t feel light weight like how other conditioners feel. This conditioner actually feels more like a hybrid between hair mask and conditioner. It is easy to work into the hair, and I usually just leave in on and wash my face, brush my teeth and wash the rest of my body before rinsing it.

The pairing of both this products together revived my almost dead looking hair.
Recently I’ve decided that I don’t really want permed hair anymore. I want to start taking better care of my hair and made sure that the glow comes back.
My hair feels kinda dead before using this range. There’s always tangles in the hair and it just didn’t feel good. but after using this product, the problem is pretty much gone! Remember how i used argan oil after showering to tame those tangles in my hair. Now I don’t really need it. Adding argan oil on my hair when I step out of the shower makes my hair looks even shiner and healthier. I don’t have any problems with tangled hair anymore. I’m thinking it has to be the ingredients used in it

There already is Argan Oil in both the Shampoo and Conditioner!

I’ll definitely recommend this! Especially for those who have frizzy hair! well.. I don’t really have crazy frizzy hair. But I have tons of baby hair sticking through. It helped with the taming of it. But now my hair seems bit lack of volume. It’s a give and take I guess??

I don’t recommend this to people who has only skin/scalp. I think this product may really clog your pores and create some breakout! not sure about it, but I’m guessing it will!
If you need recommendations on hair care routine for oily scalp or deep cleansing routine check out my video below! (yes i’m trying to make videos now)

For all of you who are wondering, this range retails for $6.50-$6.90 each at Venus Beauty.

Happy showering!

GRWM : BFF Wedding!

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome back! it’s been awhile since I actually sat down and typed something.
about a month ago in December, My BESTEST friend finally tied a knot! So happy for her! there were soo many hiccups as to where to hold the wedding and how her wedding is going to be held. initially was suppose to be december, then it became march, then june, then march again, then june again, and at last they decided at the very last few months to hold 2 weddings! one traditional and one solemnisation! so the one that we went is for the solemnisation her theme was suppose to be beach theme, but as it gets nearer to the wedding, she told me to match something orange. LOL i got 3 dresses, not knowing which to wear, and also.. it was on offer, but she choose the orange one to match her theme. So yea. i wore that in the end.Initially i wanted to vlog the entire day but i’m not sure if she wants me to post it online or not. so to be safe, i didn’t. Instead, I film myself getting ready.
To be real honest, when i was filming this, the only thought that I had going through my mind was this idea is so lame. Why will I even feel like it’s sometimes special to document. But as I was looking back and editing the video, i noticed myself smiling nonstop. What’s flowing through the mind isn’t the makeup that I did. It was the entire night of witnessing one of the most important people in my lives moving on to the next chapter of her life. It was indeed a real precious moment.

XMY Diary : A Random Note

It's been awhile since I posted a post or even a video. But do stay in tune! I'm still trying to sort out pictures and footage on our Hong Kong Trip.
Few Moments ago, xm was asking me about my lunch. Recently I have no appetite for meals and couldn't finish the portion I use to be able to. So I was saying same for today, around 1/3 of the food was left over.
Tonight we're meeting for dinner and I was telling him I worry I won't be able to eat much. Maybe manage just a little more than a slice of pizza. Him being him told me," you'll have 2 slices of pizza(which I usually easily devour 4-5slices) and I'll give you my crusts". Doesn't sound like much to others, but it warms me at this very moment.
The reason for my love for pizza is for the stuff crust. For those who don't know, stuff crust is the pizza's crust wrapped with cheese. That's my favourite part of the entire pizza.
Knowing my poor appetite recently, yet not wanting me to miss out on my favourite treat, he suggested it.
What more can I ask for. (:
