Beauty Haul

Like I said yesterday I went for a quick run to S&R cause we ran out of breakfast food. After S&R I went to Rustan’s grocery to buy more food. Since it was still early I didn’t  want to go home yet (kids were not home yet) I went up and browse around in the cosmetics section of Rustan’s Department store.

These are the beauty products I picked up yesterday.

Laura Mercier

I have been wanting to buy their foundation but whenever I am abroad and go to Sephora the shade that I want is always not available. To my surprise they have my shade! Yay!

These are the products that I picked up from Laura Mercier:

Julius, the guy in the counter gave me some products to try.

left to right: Eye Paint in Black Valley, Contour Blush in Gienah, Ita Kabuki Brush



left to right: Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul, Moisture Foundation SPF 15 in NC37


In S&R I always pass by in their toiletries aisle. And I picked up these.

Pantene Expert Collection Advanced Keratin Repair Shampoo & Conditioner
Pantene Expert Collection Age Defy Shampoo & Conditioner
Delon Premium Cosmetic Cotton Rounds.
I go thru this fast and yesterday in S&R it was buy one take one free! So I bought a lot.


Product review.

These are the products that I bought a few weeks ago that I didn’t like.

Aveeno Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo

The first time I tried it, I didn’t like it. I had a hard time shaking the white powder! But I really wanted to like it cause I bought 2 cans. So I tried it again. Still the same. So, I am not recommending this.

TRESemmè Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

I didn’t like this, too. I tried it a couple of times cause I wanted to like it cos I bought 2 cans also! But it made me look like this:

no matter how much I shake the white powder it won’t come off!

The products that I like:

TRESemmè Keratin Smooth

Super love this! And it smells soooooo good! It made my hair manageable & shiny.

Andalou Naturals Argan & Sweet Orange Styling Cream

Super love this too! I use this when my hair is still wet before I blow dry. It made my hair easier to style.

Andalou Naturals Lavender & Biotin Style Spray & Andalou Naturals Sunflower & Citrus Hair Spray

I have used the Sunflower & Citrus one and I like it. You just need a few sprays to have better effect. I haven’t tried Lavender & Biotin yet.

AZTEC Indian Healing Clay

OMG. This one is soooo good. I used it for 2 saturdays already and my skin loved it!

All the Andalou Naturals products that I bought recently, all I love.


  • Hi Tina: The reason you may not like your dry shampoos is that you may be using too much product, hence, the white residue. Before every spray squirt you have to shake the can well & spray it directly to your roots. Let the product sit for about 2min & then brush out. They also work great as texturizing sprays when you tease your hair at the crown. Shake can, spray a little on roots & tease hair. Improved holding power. Let me know if these make a difference on how you feel about these products. Mitzi Manzano

    • Hi, Mitzi! I really don’t put that much. Although I don’t wait for it to settle before I shake it off. I don’t get white residue on my hair when I use Dove dry shampoo. But I will follow what you’re teaching me. It might work! I want it to work!!! I bought 2 cans each. Thanks Mitzi!

  • Hi Ms. Tina.. Im intrigued with the Indian Healing Clay….. was it really good? where did you buy it?


    • Hi, Cielo! It’s really good! I bought it in Healthy Options Aura Branch. (Aura Branch is more complete) and it’s so cheap pa. I think it’s only P300+ This one I will really recommend. Let me know if you’ve tried it.!
