Parabens & Sodium Laureth/Lauryl Sulphate: To fret or not to fret?

Monday, January 5, 2015

Parabens? Sodium Laureth/Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)? Detergent? You might notice them on the ingredients of your personal care products – if you even bother checking, that is. But do you really know what they are? Honestly, up until last year, I didn’t even bother checking the ingredients of the products I bought. But then, while I was reading articles about skin and hair care products, I stumbled upon these articles on Los Angeles Times and Huffington Post about parabens and sulphates.

I was in search for a facial spray and going to try Evian when a good friend of mine highly recommended this product. She was (and still is) crazy about this product, so I thought I’d give it a try.

Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion

I’ve been holding off this review for a really long time. I kept this as a draft for far too long. Sorry! I had acne problems for years and tried so many products but none really helped. In 2011, my acne problem was worse than ever (thanks to Jakarta’s air pollution, stress and lack of sleep). So, I browsed on the internet to find the best skincare for acne-prone oily skin and many reviewers recommended Kiehl’s Blue Herbal collection.

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Review

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Nature Republic's Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel.

I got it for free as a bonus when I bought Cosmopolitan Indonesia Anniversary issue in September 2012. I had never heard about the product before I bought the issue. So, I had to google it first. There were so many good reviews about this product. I started using this product last month since I ran out of my Olay Natural White All in One Fairness Day Lotion.
