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!
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.
