Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Asia Glatt Shampoo Review

I just love Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Asia Glatt Shampoo!! It does wonders to my hair.
Gliss Kur Asia Glatt Shampoo - 250 ml Gliss Kur Asia Glatt Shampoo
My hair type is straight, thin and it tends to get oily if i don't wash it everyday. So if 'dared' to skip one day washing my hair, FIRST, there will be the continuous uneasy feeling of oils filling up on the top of my head, SECOND, i'll tend to play around with my hair (scratching the scalp,twisting my hair,etc.) leading to hair fall...Oh no no no... then THIRD, there might be someone say.. "Hey, did you just wash your hair?".. then i'll say "uhm..yeah.."(walk away...)(>.<). Some people might just mistaken oiliness on the hair looks like wet hair at first glance. It was so embarrassing.. haha... That was last time before i know the secret or at least great tips to manage thin and oily hair(click here to find out more).

Now it is better, if i skip a day (and not two) my hair still looks OK but i'll still feel the FIRST symptom. But at least no more THIRD symptom :) Apart from the tips from the link above, i'll like to give a review of Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Asia Glatt Shampoo. Purple in color, it has a nice fruity smell and it makes my hair looks shinier and less frizzy. It is not that my hair is very frizzy, as i mentioned, my hair is straight type, but after using this shampoo, my hair seems to look fuller and sleeker. The thing that i like most about it is it adds life to my hair. No more limpy, dull and oily hair. So i'll give it a five star for it and recommands it for people who have similar hair type as mine.

Braun Silk Epilator for Hair Removal Review

Braun SE3170 Silk-épil SoftPerfection EpilatorBraun SE3170 Silk-épil SoftPerfection Epilator
I've bought this product about a month ago and I must say, I'm actually very happy with it. For those who still don't know what does an epilator do, well, it removes unwanted hair and keep it away for longer duration than shaving does ;)

Why epilating better than shaving?
Epilating removes unwanted hair from the root while shaving just remove the hair from the top of  skin surface. Naturally, epilating will keep the skin hair free longer compared to shaving. Also, shaving might cause razor bumps. Some even claimed that if you remove the unwanted hair using tweezers or epilator often and for longer durations, the hair will even stop growing. I'm keeping my finger cross on this one :p

Does using epilator hurts?
I would be lying if i say it does not hurt at all. It does, but it is bearable. If you can endure the pain that caused by removing hair using tweezers, then it should be a piece of cake for you. If that is too much for you, then maybe you should think twice, haha.

Braun Silk Epilator product features:

  • Silky smooth skin from top to toe for up to 4 weeks
  •  4-way moving pain softener makes epilation extra gentle
  • Small tips integrated into epilation head lift the hairs so that even short hairs flat lying hairs can be removed efficiently at the root
  • Two active massage rollers stimulate the skin before and after the hair is removed to minimise the pulling sensation
