Shiseido: Ma Cherie Jelly Wax

Here's my latest hair product: Shiseido's Ma Cherie. I've seen these products in some Japanese magazines but I haven't seen it for sale in Canada so I was quite happy to find this in Seoul.
Look at this pretty pretty bottle, how could I not buy it?? I know some of the products are available on Sasa.com but I'm not sure about this one. I got this for 8500 won and there is 120g of product in it and it's got a light cherry scent to it.

My hair styling routine and products are quite simple. I spritz on some Sunsilk Volume spray (which I'm out of now and I gotta find a new replacement), put on 5 curlers, spritz on my HG hair spray, which is Osis by Schwarzkopf, rub in some Gatsby Wild Shake putty then finish with some more Osis hairspray. This routine has worked well for me for the past 6 months when I switched my hair putty to Gatsby, I can't remember the previous one, but lately my hair has been falling flat! I'm sure it's the Gatsby moulding putty as it's a tad heavy on my hair, and also because my hair is starting to grow longer which is why I decided to find something new to try.
So far the Jelly Wax has been doing its job well. I flip my head upside down and rub in a dime sized amount of this product. My hair does kinda fall flat during the late afternoon, but this always happens anyway. The Ma Cherie Jelly Wax has helped a bit with the volume because it's lighter than the Gatsby stuff.
I like this stuff because it's not super sticky, it's light weight, it smells nice and it also gives my hair that bit of oomph. It's nothing like the Lucidol gel that Pink used, but it's a good alternative since I couldn't find the Lucidol volume gel. All the stores sell the curling products but not the volume stuff! GGAAHHHH!!!


Smells yummy! The texture is, how should I put this, it's got a snot like consistency and it even has the stringyness when you squeeze it out the bottle haha. Delicious...

i don't put any hair products on my hair..maybe i should start..my hair is so lifeless..so flat and long..i'm planning on getting it cut with bangs,hahah im so lazy..i want more volume and i'd love curls..however the bf doesn't approve of it..he'd say, "oh it catches too much attention, i like it more simple" then i'd start frowning..oh well..

bouquet of flowers? should i look for a pretty picture of one and then imitate the colors?:) i have very thin brows too..well,they're actually pretty light..so i have to fill them in..i do that now because it makes me look more polished..i haven't tried waxing my brows..i tried it once on my underarms and damn was it painful! it even left some bruises and ingrown bumps :( i should grow out my eyebrows first then maybe try threading :) thankyou!
