Shideido Aquair Deep Moist Review

A while ago I got the Shiseido Deep Moist Hair Treatment Lotion and Deep Moist Hair Moisturising Essence because I ran out of my Yanagiya Tsubaki Spray. I have damaged hair which lacks a lot of moisture at the ends because I colour mine a lot, up to 7 lifts!

Browsing SaSa as I usually do I came across these two hair treatment sprays. I like hair treatment sprays because they are convenient and quick to use.

AQUAIR Deep Moist Hair Treatment Lotion

Here is what it says on SaSa
Shiseido AQUAIR Deep Moist Hair Treatment Lotion deeply permeates the centre of hair and the damaged cuticles for an immediate moisturization and repair. It solves the problem of disheveled, dry hair. Hair becomes smooth, shiny and easy to comb.
With a clear floral scent, it keeps hair isolated from unpleasant smells such as the smell of cigarette.

how to use it
  1. Use before going out or when you feel hair is dry.
  2. Hold container 5 – 10 cm from hair and spray by pressing down the handle until the hair is fully moisturized.
  3. Comb with hands or a comb.
  • 【Glycerin】softens and hydrates.
  • 【Sodium Glutamate】conditions hair.
  • 【Arginine】hydrates.

This one is best used during the day when your are preparing to go out as it works as a detangler. The scent is typical of most hair care products but only a little bit sweeter. When I spray on wet hair and let it naturally dry I do get a little bit of extra volume in my hair. It's also has a large spray area and is able to cover the majority of my head of hair with only a few sprays. I wouldn't say it really repairs the hair as I don't think it's concentrated enough. I've been using this for a while and comparing it to the Yanagiya Prexceed Tsubaki Spray this product isn't as good as it.

AQUAIR Deep Moist Hair Moisturising Essence

Here is what it says on SaSa
Shiseido AQUAIR Deep Moist Hair Moisturizing Essence concentrates on repairing hair with opened cuticles overnight. Moisturizing micro particles deeply permeate dry areas, leaving hair watery, shiny and smooth. The hair will be elastic and lustrous again in the next morning.
With a clear floral scent, it keeps hair isolated from unpleasant smells such as the smell of cigarette. 

how to use it

  1. Wash and towel-dry hair.
  2. Centering on dry hair with opened cuticles, spray an appropriate amount over hair (8 – 10 pumps for hair of medium length or long hair).
  3. Comb hair for even permeating.
  4. Recommended to use before sleep.
  • 【Glycerin】softens and hydrates.
  • 【Hydrogenated Castor Oil】hydrates and moisturizes.
  • 【Sodium Glutamate】conditions hair.
I use this one during the night time before I sleep. I has a smeller spray area compared to the Hair Treatment Lotion so you can concentrate on areas that you want. This one is more moisturising than than the Treatment lotion because my hair is more elastic when I check individual strands. I'm still a fan of my Yanagiya Tsubaki Spray and compare this to it. It doesn't perform as well but it'll have to do for now as SaSa doesn't have it in stock anymore =(

Hello Kitty X Swarovski

I'm so excited. I'm a massive fan of Swarovski Jewellery and Hello Kitty. Swarovski and Hello Kitty have combined to create super cute jewellery pieces.

Her official release will be around the end of July I believe.

Here are the pieces that will be available:

this one reminds me of my mickey mouse robot pendant - I had eyed it for the longest time ever and then it went on sale =] (good thing not many people in Australia are die hard mickey fans, compared to Asia)

Ahh!! Sooooo Cute!! X3
I want the all the jewellery pieces. I think in the end I'll just settle with the triple ring set...depending on how much it will all cost...or wait till it goes on sale at the very end of the year. It's not really a need.

What do you guys think of the collection? Which one will you get?

Hey lovelies.
I've been hauling like crazy!! Wallet is not happy with me. I online shop when I'm retail therapy =]

Here's what I got so far...

Top Row: Hair products from Shiseido, Shampoo and Conditioner, and hair moisture essence and treatment sprays. Tsubaki Spray on the end. Will do a review on some the hair treatment sprays as a got those a couple of weeks ago.
Lower rows: I caved in and bought some dolly winks and Ardell lashes, I got dolly wink pure little and sweet girly...these lashes are huge! and long! The Ardell lashes, I've tried some and they're great, very light weight. Also stocked up on Vitacreme B12 (got them for $9 each!!) Got SK-II Facial Treatment Repair-C (it's a concentrated version of the facial treatment essence. Love!), Crabtree and Evelyn Lavender Room Spray, Yanagiya Apricot Hair Oil and Tsubaki shampoos and conditioners.
I got these all from SaSa and Bonjour. The Ardell lashes are from eBay.

Did a nail polish haul after I finished all my exams.
L-R: Nail polish thinner, Kose Pure mild enamel remover, Missha The Style nail polish remover, China glaze nail polises and OPI P17 "Stranger Tides" from the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Seche Vite (really really good!! wished I'd discovered it sooner), Rimmel Matte Finish topcoat and Rimmel 60seconds polish in Grey Matter.
I love pastel coloured nail polishes.

CanCam July 2011

CanCam is one of my favourite Japanese magazines to look through. It's targeted at college/university ladies. My Japanese friend sends me CanCam magazines and I usually get friends who visit Japan to pick me up a copy. The looks are more wearable, very cute and lady like. Most of the makeup look is neutral and would suit everybody because everything is very subtle and elegant.

I love their 10 days of different looks with select items of clothing

Make up and nails

Dolly Wink from Bonjour

A lot of people know about SaSa because of their great prices and decent international postage service. However, few know about Bonjour HK unless they live in Hong Kong or have travelled there. I found out about Bonjour a year ago while I was in Hong Kong and their prices are comparable or sometimes cheaper than SaSa. Later I figured out they had an online store like SaSa. I've shopped online at SaSa when they had free expedited shipping if you spent $150 and over, now they've reduced it to free registered shipping if you spend $75 and over. It's not a bad thing but I tend to visit the site more now =S

For Bonjour they had free expedited shipping if you spend $200 or more...which can be hard to rack up or pay $15 shipping fee. The best thing now is that they've reduced it to free shipping if you spend $99 or more or pay $5.20 shipping. Big improvement =] They also carry some items that SaSa doesn't have and usually (in my opinion) their prices are cheaper by 5% or more than SaSa. 

The thing I've noticed most about Bonjour is that they carry Dolly Wink now!! and Melliesh (SaSa doesn't). However, they are $14 USD, a tiny bit more dearer but if you haul other stuff it's definitely more worth it shopping there. Also another great thing that they've introduced this year besides the cheaper shipping is FREE shipping on some selected products.

They have Dolly Wink Pure Little for $14USD shipped free =] I'm just waiting for mine to arrive at my doorstep.

N.B. I'm not paid to blog this, just sharing a good secret of mine
