There are times that strolling in the aisles of grocery is dangerous in the sense that you see things that makes you curious, take for example the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle conditioner (which luckily I got at half the price)  I don't need it but bought two for good measure (that's what I thought).

Here's another edition of Quick Bites where I share my thoughts of random products in a "quick" way.

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle
This is love at first use of sachet, I was head over heels and decided to get a tube but lo and behold it went on sale and so I bought two.  The first 2.5 weeks was heaven: my hair is soft and shiny it's as if I having an everyday hair spa.  Past the 2.5 weeks though, my hair started to feel heavy and I noticed more bumps like pimples on my shoulders, on my hairline and jaw area and on my scalp too meaning this conditioner is just too strong that my sensitive skin can't take it~ it's like the conditioner's love is too much that my body is already choking.

Nivea Intensive Moisturizing Serum SPF25PA++
I hate wearing sunblock or any lotion with SPF because they are heavy and overall give an unpleasant feel to my skin but heck I need protection from the blazing sun this summer (I'm talking 30 degrees and beyond temperature with so much humidity) so I'm happy with an emulsion like moisturizer with SPF.  At first I thought this doesn't provide enough moisture because the outer layer of my skin is not as smooth and silky as when I apply my regular lotion at night but I'm wrong because when I scratch myself, I don't see any white marks~that's how I measure how moisturizing my body moisturizer is :P

St. Ives Bright Skin Apricot Scrub
This is pricier than the regular St. Ives scrubs and the packaging have all these Japanese (if I'm not mistaken) words so it got me curios.  Well, the "granules" in this scrub is much finer which I really like.  Aside from that thought, it seems like the other kind of scrub from St.  Ives.

Beauty Formulas Glorious Mud Facial Mask
I tried the green tea version of this when I stayed at my sister's place one night and it lifted my white and blackheads that I can easily remove them without the help of tweezers so I thought this must be better because mud masks lift or absorbs impurities and it's made of kaolin and bentonite.  Well, I'm slightly wrong~the green tea is better when it comes to removing whiteheads and blackheads but this one seems to suck all the accumulated oils of my body from the products that I use (I use this not just on my face but on my body as well) I have to remember to moisturize well after though as it is a bit drying.

The Body Shop Hand Cream
I got these  (I got three, gave the other one to my sister and I don't know why I'm telling this to you) from some of the points I accumulated from buying The Body Shop products (I'm quite loyal before) and I love them especially this summer.  They are light yet very moisturizing (more light than all the aloe gels that I tried which to me are very light) and also give a refreshing feel to the skin.  The satsuma smell is really refreshing, it's like orange and lime in one.


  1. I'm a big fan of these products, especially the St. Ive's apricot scrub. Smells good and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. :)

    1. And they are affordable too compared to other brands that are in the market

  2. Pantene 3 Minute Miracle went on sale :O i couldnt even find it in our groceries here amagad. we have the anti hair fall version lang. btw thanks for the warning sis, when i buy this ill make sure to switch it up with my other conditioners para not too strong ;)
