Tsubaki Hair Range Repackaged & Improved

Some time back, I was invited to the Tsubaki media launch for their improved and repackaged product range.  The new bottles that feature the key ingredient in its product, the Camellia flowers on its packaging. My first encounter with Tsubaki products was back in 2011 and I have nothing but raves for the range. You would probably like to read back my previous entries on Tsubaki.


This new range has been newly improved to suit the latest haircare preference, which is natural lightness. Women are going for that natural, airy lightness in their hair on top of beautiful hair that is and looks healthy. Healthy-looking hair is not only beautiful but also shiny. However, damage from exposure to UV or heat can cause loss of melanin which then leads to loss of shine and luster. This is where the new Tsubaki products plays an important role with its special ingredient, Arginine. It internally repairs the damaged hair so that achieving lustrous hair is now a possibility.

Like the previous range, there are 3 types so that there’s something for each hair type.


The SHINING Series is for silky manageable hair with a satiny smooth texture. The range features the hair melanin hole reparative ingredient- Arginine, for hair shine – Camellia oil, for moisture and shine – Camellia Leaf Essence.


Available in this SHINING series is the shampoo, conditioner , treatment and hair mask.


The DAMAGE CARE series features the usual hair melanin hole reparative ingredient- Arginine, for hair shine – Camellia oil and the Camellia Repair Butter which is for hair repair and moisture. This range is suitable for those with damaged and dry hair.


Like the SHINING series, it also comes with the shampoo, conditioner, treatment and mask.


The HEAD SPA series is for those who are looking for a head spa experience in the comforts and convenience of their own home and without burning a hole in their pocket. Shiseido’s research has shown that an unhealthy scalp would result in unhealthy hair. Thus, it is important to maintain a healthy scalp. The Camellia Flower Essence is an anti-inflammatory agent and hair moisturizing agent so that hair is firm and supple right from the roots. It also boosts of a new relaxing natural aroma with floral notes that helps one to relax and unwind.

The essential oil blend in this HEAD SPA series consists of sage oil, ginger, thyme, rosehip and sorbitol, all of which promote healthy scalp and hair growth. This range consists of the shampoo, conditioner, extra cleansing and treatment.


Remember the Head Spa Extract Cleansing from the previous range which recommended a once a week usage guideline? Well, the newly improved version is gentle enough to be used daily.

The new range is now available exclusively at Watsons stores. Do check them out :)

[Review] New ASIENCE Leave-On Hair Treatment range

Oh look what we have here… It’s the new ASIENCE Leave-On Hair Treatment range.

“Stepping out of house with the perfect hair, only to find your confidence waning by mid-day? With Singapore’s humid weather creating undesirable frizz and flyaway, having silky-smooth hair would seem almost unattainable. Achieving beautiful hair that lasts all day is just a step away with the New ASIENCE Leave-On Hair Treatment range.

Containing ASIENCE’s exclusive Beauty Essences (Lotus Flower, Camellia Oil, Pearl and Shell Ginger Leaf), the range provides intensive repair and moisturises hair from within. Enhanced with a hair ‘veiling’ ingredient,ASIENCE’s advanced Moisture-Lock Complex retains moisture to give long-lasting smoothness and manageability, so you can flaunt those silky tresses at any moment, everyday!”

Now, I’m excited to try out the leave-on hair treatment for myself 😀

So there are 3 types available as different hair types require different treatments.

ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Water: For Tangled and Untamed Hair – Light as water, it instantly repairs and retains moisture without weighing your hair down

ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Milk: For dry and frizzy hair – Nourishing yet non-greasy, it instantly repairs and retains moisture to keep hair beautifully soft and healthy

ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Oil: For Severely Dry and Damaged Hair – Concentrated yet non-oily, it intensively repairs and retains moisture to keep hair glossy and healthy

Judging from the above list, my hair type belongs to the tangled and untamed kind so the ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Water is most suitable for me. Having it a spray bottle makes it really convenient to use.

You can use this on towel-dry or damp hair, simply just spray a few times while making sure that it’s evenly spread out before combing through. I’m amazed at how hassle-free and easy this is. I would most probably be keeping a bottle of it in my car so that I can look neat and presentable before my appointments.


As you can see in the BEFORE photo, I’m quite a victim of frizzy, tangled hair with all the flyaways. But after using the ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Water, my hair is so much neater and manageable. Now I can say goodbye to cursed flyaway hair!

With a texture and consistency that’s like water, I don’t need to worry about any oily sheen or if hair that would look unnatural and stiff. So this one is definitely a keeper :)

ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment range retails at S$14.90 and is available at selected hypermarkets, supermarkets and pharmacies.


Shiseido reveals new range of hair products – Tsubaki Head Spa Series

If you do recall, I had blogged about the Tsubaki hair products previously HERE. For months, I have been using these products and friends have commented that my hair looks much healthier than before. Previously, the Tsubaki Shining range (Red) and Tsubaki Damage Care Range (White) were introduced to the Singapore market.

I am personally a fan of the Damage Care Range since my hair has been chemically treated many times over, it is pretty badly damaged. And I require all the care and nourishment to mend it. I also learnt that some may find the Shining Range a tad bit too moisturizing for them. So this time round, a new range is introduced to resolve that issue.

Presenting the TSUBAKI HEAD SPA series:

Shampoo – 550ml S$19.90

Conditioner – 550ml S$19.90

Treatment Mask – 180g S$22.90

Extra Cleansing – 280ml S$15.90

With this new range, you can now enjoy a head spa in the comforts of your own home. These 4 products; the Shampoo, Conditioner, Mask Treatment and Extra Cleansing (left to right above) all contain a combination of natural essential oils – Marigold, Rose, Cinnamon, Geranium, Mango, Olibanum, Litchi, Patchouli, Tangerine, Orange flower, Muguet, Laurel leaf, Cognac oil, Vetivr, Musk, Cedar wood, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Bergamot, Vanilla for moisturizing the scalp and hair. The Tsubaki Head Spa‘s fine textured foam penetrates the nutrients deep into hair and scalp which removes build-up and residue. So you can have healthy hair from root to tip.

How do you tame that lion’s mane?

Do you have unruly, messy hair that’s untamed each morning you wake? Then fret not, for you are not alone!

I used to wish for sleek, straight hair and thus, the numerous rebonding sessions I have made my hair put up with. However, now, I actually prefer a slight wave in my hairstyle so that it looks more natural instead of ruler-straight.

If there’s one thing I could change about my hair, it would be to have really soft and luscious locks.  You see I have really thick hair so it’s much more difficult to maintain. And it is badly damaged too due to the chemical treatments it has undergone. So if I could have hair like those in the shampoo ads, it would be a dream come true!

Anyway, just thought I shared some tips on solving some hairy woes.

[REVIEW] Dove Damage Therapy Intense Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

I got these travel-sized samples as a gift with purchase of a magazine. I think it was Watson’s Glow but anyway, I never got the chance to try it till my recent business trip.

According to Dove, hair can be damaged on the inside as well as the outside, making it weak, porous and therefore more prone to breakage and splitting. This shampoo contains patented micro moisture serum and strengthens and nourishes hair from root to tip. Fiber actives deeply penetrate porous hair to help reconstruct it from within. This weightless formula leaves hair strengthened and resistant to future damage without weighing it down.

So the benefits of using this shampoo?

My experience with Svenson

As a customer of Bella Skin, I was invited to try the services at their sister companies too. It would comprise of a consultation and complimentary treatment. As you probably know already, I have quite a love-hate customer relationship with Bella Skin. On one hand, its really a pampering indulgence each time I go for their facial, however, I still hold this personal grouse against them for screwing up a couple of times previously.

Anyway, what I like best about being the paying customer is that the service staff are less superficial. Because if they knew I was going to blog about it or that I have a beauty blog, I am pretty sure that the treatment would have differed drastically.

The geniuses at Kao have come up with a new range of damage care hair products that have made me a very HAIR-py girl. Essential Damage Care promises to nourish & care for your damaged hair, even up to the last 15cm of it. Many trendy ladies in Singapore have damaged hair due to the constant chemical-treatments we make our hair put up with for the sake of looking good. Think rebonding, perming & dyeing…. But how can one look gorgeous if the end result will only be dry & badly damaged hair? Fried hair is so not sexy. Did you know that even regular styling and blow-drying will cause damage to hair?

Most of us would be no stranger to miserable hair issues such as split-ends, tangles and brittle hair. We may even resort to cutting off our hair which we have painstakingly tried to grow out for the past year just to get rid the damaged portions. But ladies plagued with such HAIR ISSUES, fret not! As Kao’s Essential range of Damage Care products will fix this problem for you!

They have two range of products depending on the hair finish you prefer:

Nuance Airy : For an Airy & Bouncy Look
