The Zalora Pop Up Store

Monday, 3 November 2014

zalora recently opened their digital interactive flagship store at ion orchard, taking online shopping experience offline. the shopping experience in zalora is quite different unlike the usual physical stores. the products in-store are curated and customers can pick out the items they want to try on, with samsung as their tech support, customers can purchase using the computers or the samsung galaxy tab provided. 

i think what really draws me into the whole concept is that i would be able to try on the clothes first before deciding if i should make a purchase. as fit and quality is very important to me, it is a plus point to know where my money is spent at. 


some event photos from my new samsung galaxy alpha 4G+ and awwsnaphotobooth. thank you again zalora for inviting us! the zalora shop at ion orchard is located at #b2 - 04/ 05. opens daily from 1000 to 2200, till the end of january 2015. 


[Beauty Review] Tsubaki Hair Oil

Thursday, 16 October 2014

tsubaki recently launched a new hair oil product last september. after given a quick presentation on the product at the shiseido office, i found the making of the product quite interesting  ingredients used are specially selected camellia seeds from goto islands in nagasaki, japan. the perfect location and weather are suited to produce high quality camellia seeds. after a careful handpicked selection of ripe fruits, it undergoes a traditional and time consuming extraction method. only pure camellia oil obtained from the first pressing is used, ensuring high quality. the whole process does sound very organic and healthy, and i guess thats what appealed to me most. 

key benefits
01 formulated with high concentration of selected camellia oil to deeply protect, moisturise and repair your hair, resulting in luxurious shine 02 instantly penetrates hair upon application without feeling greasy or sticky and gives a silky smooth finish 03 protects your hair from damage by UV rays and heat from hair dryers (or other styling equipment), while preventing split ends and hair breakage 04 elegant and indulgent scent of floral and green fruity notes

3 ways application
01 to apply evenly spread half the appropriate amount (about 20 cent coin size for mid length hair) onto the palms and work through the hair. then, spread the second half onto the palms and focus on areas that require extra application. 

02 to prevent flat hair — start application from the damaged tips and gradually work upwards to the roots to avoid flat hair. refrain from applying large amount. this is recommended to those who have soft and fine hair.

03 to reduce volume or prevent dry hair apply an appropriate amount to wet hair and dry it with a hair dryer. then, spread a small amount onto the palms an apply on bottom half of the hair to reduce the volume. recommended to those who have thick and voluminous hair.

based on my experience with the product
having a few bad knots due to frequent hair colouring (i've decided to stop), combing my hair is extremely painstaking. also, it looks dry and naturally messy. i've been using the tsubaki hair oil on and off now before writing this review, and yes i could feel the difference in the smoothness and shine. i, of course, made the effort to comb and untangle knots after shower to achieve maximum pretty hair state. haha. the flora scented oil smells really good and application was a breeze, i pretty much just rubbed the oil in and had everything under control in less than 10 minutes. i certainly do hate doing stuffs that takes too much of my time.

if you aren't quite convince yet, heres another reason — it is a leave on hair oil! what it basically means is that i do not have to blow dry my hair and allow it to naturally dry. woohoo! i don't know about you, but i previously was recommended to use this "shine and shield" hair product that requires me to blow dry my hair after. too much fuss yknow? i cannot keep up with the routine! so yes, this is quite a gem if you have lots of bad knots / dry hair but ain't got time to maintain (like me).

the 60ml tsubaki hair oil is available at 26.90 SGD exclusively on watsons
