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!
I have been using the A’kin Rosemary Shampoo for over a month now and wasn’t planning to review it initially because I had already written one on the A’kin Mandarin Shampoo. However, I just have to blog about this one because I realized that it has given my hair a natural highlight. Now, this was not what I bought it for; I got it simply because it was part of a 3-in-1 pack of A’kin stuff and rosemary is supposed to work for my oily hair. In fact, you can say the result was unexpected.
See an olive and it conjures up images of fresh salads with feta cheese and olives with a drizzle of olive oil and yummy pastas cooked with extra virgin olive oil! Enticing us gastronomically is just one of the many uses of olives; it is a much regarded beauty product since ancient times from Greece to Rome – sometimes called as “liquid gold” as olive oil has nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-aging properties such as squalene, beta-carotene, and vitamin E.
I realized that about this time last year, I had reviewed some of the skin care products under A’kin. So it’s kind of funny that a year later, I’m reviewing some of their products again, and this time on their hair and body range. I had first purchased a sort of 3-in-1 value pack that included an A’kin Mandarin Shampoo, an A’kin Jojoba & Lavender Light Conditioner and an A’kin Orange Blossom Body Wash. Then just earlier this week, I took advantage of the GSS to buy the A’kin Lavender Body Wash.
