#RIXREVIEWS: ELLIPS Hair Vitamin

Whenever I’m at the hair care section in a supermarket, one of the things that always catches my attention is this sheet of huge capsules from Ellips. These capsules, though, are not supposed to be taken orally, but are directly applied onto the hair.

I have known this brand since I was in high school (I’m pretty sure I was in high school then) and they offer several products that are designed to make hair healthy and beautiful. I have tried their Cuticle Serum, which wasn’t mine actually, but I thought it made my hair feel healthy.

So when I was at the hair care section last week, I decided to finally give it a try. So I picked one sheet and threw it in my basket. There were three variants available – the purple one for color treated hair, the yellow one for dry hair, and the pink one for damaged hair. I chose the last one because I needed something that could help my shampoo and conditioner fix my hair issues, such as hair fall, dryness, and frizziness.

This is Ellips Hair Vitamin with Pro-Keratin Complex Hair Repair. There are six capsules tightly sealed in a blister pack.  Continue reading “#RIXREVIEWS: ELLIPS Hair Vitamin”

These Products from SYKE PH Have Saved My Hair!

If I were given a chance to bring back a feature of my young self, that would be my healthy long black hair. You never would have guessed I used to have straight hair ’till I was in fifth grade!

Back then, my tatay used to regularly take me to the same hairdresser’s and had my hair trimmed only by two inches. My hair was long, down to my waist and sometimes even to my bottom. My teachers loved styling my hair because it was silky, smooth, healthy and pretty. I’d go to school with my hair down, I’d go home with my hair in braids.

Then in 1994, my nanay had my hair cut shorter than usual; it was shoulder-length. My tatay was so upset and told me that the reason he kept my hair long was that if it were cut short, it would start to curl as my parents themselves had curly hair.

He was right. Just a few months later, it started to wave and fast-forward to now, it’s curly, frizzy, dry, and well, unattractive. Well, hugely because of me not giving it much importance growing up. ☹

I’ve tried a lot of hair products that claim to make hair healthy, but to no avail. Some were really good, but they were quite a price.

Here are the things that must be considered before I write about the products:

  1. I had the ends of my hair lightly bleached in December and January.
  2. I have used different kinds of hair dyes – ones bought online, in drugstores, and in thrift shops.
  3. I have a terrible problem with hairfall. Everytime I take a shower, there are strands of hair all over the floor. When I comb or brush my hair, there’s a clump of hair in the teeth or bristles.
  4. My scalp can get sweaty and oily.

So winning in SKYE PH‘s giveaway was really timely. That time, I was hunting for hair products that could address my problems. I was looking for a shampoo and a conditioner that could clear my scalp without drying my hair.

Now my search is over! Without further achuchuchu, here are the products that I won from SKYE PH… Continue reading “These Products from SYKE PH Have Saved My Hair!”

BOTTOMS UP! Product Empties #1

I have been collecting empty boxes, jars, and bottles for months, because I’ve planned on posting my “product empties”. My mom was already eyeing on them and was itching to throw them away. So I just kept them all in a shoe box.

Actually not all. 😪 I got rid of some because I kept forgetting that I’d be posting my empties!

I have been meaning to post this, but see, it took me ages before I actually did! Thanks to Dee! I am finally doing it.

So yeah, I’m doing this in collaboration with Dee, and you can check out her blog here.

Dee and I collaborated last December 2017 on YouTube, and we both did a Holiday Glam makeup look.

This time we’re doing a collab on our respective blogs. I’m so excited to know what products she’s used up, and whether or not she’s going to get them again.

Mine consists of products that I used up from way, way back. Everything is listed in random order.

By the way, isn’t it satisfying to see ourselves actually finishing up items we spent our money on whether or not we like them? Continue reading “BOTTOMS UP! Product Empties #1”
