I’m a bad blogger, but hey! I came out with a new collection and this time it features crystals and leather.

I’m not really into crystal healing but crystals/minerals are pretty and they come in different colors. These are inspired by similar handmade jewelry sellers based in the US, mainly sacraluna on Instagram, she’s a great artist and her Instagram is where I learned these things exist and they make really beautiful jewelry pieces.

If you’re into them, check them out and consider purchasing some, yeah?

Hello everyone!

I have recently discovered handmade jewelry making! And since I can’t wear a dozen of necklaces and bracelets at the same time, why not open an online business and make some money out of something I love doing? Eh? Eh? I am also thinking of blogging tutorials about the pieces I make so let me know if that’s something you’d all want to see.

Please check out Riviera: Handmade Accessories, an online shop of handmade necklaces and bracelets. We are on Instagram, too. All products are carefully handmade by me.

 

Tresemme Smooth and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Review

From the Tresemme India website:

This product with vitamin H and silk protein intensely moisturizes dry, rough hair. For hair that feels soft and smooth.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Delivers intense moisturisation, targeting the areas your hair needs it most – the key to salon silk moisture.
  • Contains silk protein and vitamin H.
  • For smoother, silkier hair.

I saw this at the supermarket in a trial-sized version, 90mL each for the shampoo and conditioner and cost about Php90 for the pack. I picked this up because I heard raves about the Tresemme heat protectant and for some reason I thought this shampoo and conditioner would work great. And it’s for dry and frizzy hair, and my hair is exactly that. And it was cheap and tiny, perfect for trying it out for my hair for a couple of weeks.

Sorry for the crappy photo.

Sorry for the crappy photo.

What I like about the two products: Smells great and it lasts for the whole day, so that’s good. I found myself sniffing my hair before I went to bed. The shampoo lathered up very easily, which is not an easy task on my hair. That’s about it.

What I don’t like about the two products: It didn’t help with my tangles, if anything, it made my hair tangle up more and adding to my hairfall. Not cool. And a very weird side effect, a pimple started growing on my scalp (what!) somewhere behind my left ear and a couple inches above my nape. I have never ever had pimples on my scalp. And I’d get this stabbing pain on that spot at random times when my hair moves. I swear to god, so weird.

I immediately stopped using this because, damn, I don’t want any stabbing pains anywhere in my body thank you very much.

Rating: 3/10 Well, it smells nice. And my hair kind of felt soft, but I didn’t feel like my hair was being hydrated enough. And a pimple on the scalp? FFS.
