Love Pack + Skinfood Yuckies

A few weeks ago, I left a comment somewhere that my hair was breaking and falling out more than usual due to the water in Korea..I can't remember who's blog it was. Anyway, Mika (Beauty Snap) had read it and she offered to send me some shampoos that might help give my hair a boost of goodness. The water in Korea is difficult to create a lather and it's just weird water imo....I think I said this already.
Mika sent me some DHC shampoo/conditioner, Tsubaki White shampoo, Kracie hair treatment, Fekkai protein treatment and a styling cream. I'm eagerly awaiting bedtime to try the Fekkai sample haha. I'm so weird. She's such a sweetie, I didn't expect her to send so much too! Thankq!!
I just used the Kracie hair treatment. I left it in my hair for about 4-5 minutes and omg, my hair is so smooth. Smooth enough that I can run a comb through it while wet and my hair didn't tangle at all.
Thankq again Mika! Just watch out now XD BTW, her writing is so neat.

I got a Skinfood cleanser for Tim to use, it's the Tea Tree Cleansing Foam. After Tim used it once, he was like "it smells like tar!" I opened the tube to take a sniff, but I could only smell like tea tree/woody smells. I tried this the next day and holy crap...it smelled like I was using asphalt on my face, gross!!!!!!! I didn't use it again so I can't let you know how well it washes. I just wanna warn people that this smells so bad!!!!!! *sigh* Skinfood cleansers have been a hit or miss for me.
I'm still using the Laneige Pore cleanser (blue tube) so I don't have to suffer with asphalt smelling skin. But I'm hating the Laneige cleanser right now. The smell lingers too long and it's so strong, I don't even know why I repurchased it. Waiting to finish it so I can try the Hanskin ones.


I finally watched Terminator 4. I'm so behind in movies, I haven't even seen Watchmen or Transformers 2. I was supposed to see it yesterday but the only one with enough seats was at 9:45pm. I wasn't going to wait till then, especially since I had school the next day. I'm gonna make it a date to see Transformers this Friday, no one spoil it for me!!! XDXD

I can't seem to finish my Seoul shopping guide. There's just too much to write, I didn't expect to take this long....trying!!

I do hate it when something that you want ends up being a right pongy stinker!!

Somone need to invest sniffernet! so we can smell things before we invest!

skinfood sounds like a really good brand...but too bad in canada they dont have it and only way to get it is through online stores XD

Vanessa said...

I just saw Transformers 2 last night hehe it was awwwesome IMO.

Watchmen on the other hand I wish I had skipped. Way too long of a movie with way too much torture.

Love your blog!

Everything from Laneige smells so strong, don't you think? Except for the strawberry yogurt stuff which smells great, hahahaha.

miss wiggle said...

Yea I haven't watched Watchmen yet either... mostly because the trailer totally confused me, and I didn't get the appeal of the transparent blue man hahah! I will check out Transformers tho!

Mika is very sweet..glad you liked her shampoos.

UGH-TAR--reminds me of roadworks in the summertime!

Pop Champagne said...

lovely package! I was T4 last week, I'm also behind in movies! I liked it a lot but a lot of people didn't... Well, I mean it didn't make much sense, but it was entertaining for sure!

Beauty Snap said...

Yay! You got it~ I'm so glad that the treatment made your hair smoother,, it's doing it's job well hahaha. And you left the comment on my cbox hehe :D Eughh tar scent facewash? -_-; I hope it's a good cleanser despite the unappealing scent.

Edna said...

Awww Mika is so sweet :) I'm glad her hair care products are helping out your hair!!

Don't worry about being behind on movies. I haven't watched a lot of movies lately, and I haven't even watched the first transformers!!
