Is it strange to know that I powder my hair on a daily basis? Well, I wash my hair daily but it’s not enough to keep my hair grease free and so I must always use a dry shampoo or some hair powder. This practice actually began since my late teens when I wasn’t shampooing daily; I had used body powder to keep my hair looking decent during those years. Then down the road, I discovered dry shampoo and that to me was truly a hair saver. So yeah, using hair powder is my kind of thing and so this LuLu Organics Lavender Clary Sage Hair Powder naturally appealed to me.
When I first saw this item, I was like, geez, what’s with that amorous looking image? I mean, what has it got to do with the purpose of the product, REALLY? I’ll say that the packaging did pique my interest but I doubt I would have bought this item if it did not come highly recommended by a reader. And I’m not sure if the odd image has anything to do with it but it looks like many customers are quite enamored with this product, going by the number of positive reviews at iHerb.com.
When Sesame asked me to review the Yadah product range, I agreed mainly out of curiosity. I had heard so many good things about Korean skincare but had never tried any of it till now. It was with some surprise though when I went to the Yadah website and found that the brand is “natural and authentic skincare for teens and young adults”. I had long since passed the stage of teen and young adult. However, I did have combination skin that tends to break out quite easily. So I guess my skin is quite similar to that of a young adult’s. After trying the products for a couple of weeks, I must say that in general, I give them the thumbs up.
This is one of those brands that I’ve avoided purchasing for the longest time because of the name. Why? Because I’m always suspicious of brands that call themselves Organic, Organics, or anything that sounds close. Come on now, there is not one organic ingredient in the product and this is a typical example of greenwashing. So why did I purchase this then? Well, I’ve had people coming to tell me that this is a good organic shampoo and I feel that some clarifications is required. At S$12.90 after sale, I thought I’ll give it a go just to see if it lives up to its claims, given that I’ve already taken the Organix Hydrating Teatree Mint for a couple of washes last year and it was not bad in terms of performance.
I noticed a collection of unused shampoos and conditioners hidden in a box while clearing some items in my room recently. They were part of a review project I worked on last year and I never got round to finishing them up, mostly because they either do not suit me so well or because I’ve moved on to try other things. Anyway, of the lot, the Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic set is most interesting as it is made with non-toxic chemistry, and its unique selling point is being gluten free. And boy, after a year, they’re still usable!
