Hair Mask. Coffee Milk Scrub. Cocoa Glow Lotion

There are just times that I wanted to pick up things just for the sake of going home with a plastic bag on hand.  I usually go to Watsons when those times happen, luckily most of the products (or food) that I pick works!


Naturals by Watsons Olive Hair Mask - P229 (around $5)
I used this again last night, fan dry my hair and went to sleep.  When I woke up, my hair looks fantastic...it's as if I went to the salon:  it's shiny, it's straighter (my hair is straight in the first place) but with body (I hate the walis ting ting/broom style, I like my hair to have that natural semi curve ends), it's soft and definitely less frizzy and my hair feels lighter as if the gunk accumulated for the week went bye bye.  If I don't dry my hair when I used this, I still get the same result sans the straighter effect because well when I commute, my hair just flies in every direction making the ends semi curled which is not bad, right?

The product itself is light (lighter than conditioner), a bit like whipped and my hair just absorbs it quickly that the first time that I used this I thought I'm not putting the right amount but a tablespoon is enough to cover a shoulder length hair.  About the scent...I don't think it has an olive smell, it's more on the flowery side which I sometimes hate...I like subtle olive rather than a flower-y scent on my hair.

Obviously I love Naturals by Watsons Olive hair Mask.  I will love it even more if by the time that I will get another one, it'll be on sale and maybe I'll also get the shampoo and the conditioner from the line.

A Bonne Spa Coffee Milk Creamy Salt - more or less P120 (around $2.60)
My first ever scrub is from A Bonne - the milk salt scrub which makes the skin soft but the hellish feeling when I apply the scrub makes me use it only once in a while so when I saw this creamy variant (plus it's in coffee) I thought it's perfect...I was wrong.

First of all it's not that creamy, it's more like semi wet salt scrub.  Second, the coffee smell is a joke to me...it's like I ordered a black coffee but got a mug filled with sugar with just a hint of coffee.  Anyway, it still works like the milk salt scrub (I hoped you tried it already).  It does exfoliate and makes the skin smooth and radiant and I like that it's in tube but I won't buy it again because the applying it on the skin hurts.


Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Glow - P99 (around $2.20)
Ah my savior last December 2013 (when my skin got so dry and itchy), it beats my body butters and oils in terms of performance and price.  This lotion simply moisturizes dry skin and gives it a glow (I can't believe its claims are all true).

The only con that I can think of is that it makes me sweat more than normal during daytime so I usually use this at night.  When the weather is colder and dryer than normal, I use this after patting some dry oil on my skin.

Oh did I mention that it has a yummy chocolate smell?

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye!

  1. Ooh I love products that smell like chocolates, so I might just like that Vaseline lotion. Di naman ako nag aapply ng anything sa umaga, only at night. :D

  2. When I first saw the picture the item that attracted me the most was the A Bonne Spa Coffee Milk Creamy Salt. A shame it's too harsh. When a scrub is too harsh it really hurts and it's a horrible feeling.
    I did not like the The Wolf Of Wall Street, but truth be told, swearing and sex is what sells these days.. The room was packed with people and I'm sure I was the only one that did not like it...

    1. I also got attracted to it when I was in Watsons but it just too harsh for my skin.
      I just can't believe that all those things happened in an office or was it just in the mind of the main character because his always high due to drugs, my brother said it's based on a true story. it was awkward watching it

  3. I almost bought the two (mask and lotion) a few times whenever I visit Watsons. They always catch my eye but I always stop myself before actually buying. :D Maybe I should go ahead and get them now after reading your review. Thanks. :)

    2. The hair mask sounds appealing though... Maybe i'll try it next time.
