Secret Batch Code How to decode secret batch codes of beauty products
Okay, confession time.  Do you ever bother to check the expiry date on your beauty products?  Well, I don’t.  I’ve not given this much thoughts plus there isn’t an expiration date for most products anyway because there’s no legal requirement to use expiry or use-by dates on the majority of products.

In fact, only products that won’t last longer than 30 months need to show a use-by date in the form of a month and year, whereas all other products don’t need one.  But of course, all products do have a shelf live especially skincare products that contains preservatives or “all natural” products that contain plant-derived ingredients.

Cleansing cream, lotion, gel or oil?

If you’re undecided whether to use a cleansing cream, cleansing lotion or cleansing oil, you might want to read up this article on makeup remover which highlights the differences as well as some of myths about cleansing. 

Personally, I like using cleansing lotion and from the article, it does look like it is suitable for me because the hydration factor is higher.  In addition, because of the lower content of emulsifiers, cleansing lotions are very mild and gentle on dry, mature or sensitive skin. Although the cleansing power of lotions may not be as high as that of cleansing oil, it doesn’t matter to me since I always double cleanse my face anyway.

Japanese hairstyles for inspiration

So I learnt that 2008 hairstyle trend for women will likely be marked by longer hair with a volume and fullness achieved by looser, natural flowing curls. Hair coloring will be more subtle and soft instead of the stark color contrasts that are popular today.
