Did you know that some hairdressers actually have very sensitive skin on their hands? Apparently, many of them have this problem because they’re in constant contact with chemicals such as ammonia on a long term basis. My ex-hairstylist has this problem and I know he has to take medication to curb the frequent flare-ups of eczema on his hands. So this is the reason why more salons are introducing ammonia-free permanent hair color. An example is Ecorganics I visited two weeks ago that uses a safer permanent hair color with Simply Organic Oil Emulsion Haircolor.
I was pretty excited to learn that VMV Hypoallergenics Skin-Specialist Boutique has opened at ION Orchard. Although this is the first time I’m learning of VMV, this cosmeceutical brand with the world’s only validated hypoallergenic rating system has actually been around for over 30 years since 1979. And given that a number of you have told me that you’ve got sensitive skin, I’m guessing that skin care solutions that are safe and boast of a rate of less than 0.1% reported reactions with a rating system that show the number of allergens absent might get your interest too.
I emerged from Browhaus, the brow salon, with the skin around my eyebrows all red and slightly sore but yet I can’t wait to get my next treatment with them! This is the first time I’ve experienced threading and I love it! Because my eyebrows were hardy unruly, they weren’t dramatically transformed but they look a lot neater without the stray hair strands, which were impossible to be tweezed out completely even with my trusty Tweezerman.
I received an invitation to try the Kimia Facial System back in December, but only found time to try it out last week. I hardly go for facials these days because they’re too time consuming, but was interested enough to try this one out only because one, the products are in the natural category and two, I read that Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham have testified to the brilliance of Kimia’s Facial System. Yes, I not only fall for pretty packaging, I fall for celebrity endorsements too!
