My Review
This was first bought and use about 1 year, close to 2 year ago when I first felt that my hair lost needed some help. 

Phyto came to my rescue really!!!  The amazing result make me fall in love with this product. :)

Lets not waste time and go straight to the product. Shall we?

The treatment is packed in 12 ampoules with applicator tip given. Each ampoules is 7.5ml. 
Ampoules and applicator packed.
To use, I will need to break open the neck of the ampoule. For the first few ampoule, breaking it is a scary thing to me as I scared I will accidentally break the whole ampoule. But subsequently, its ok. Get used to it.
Ampoule and applicator.
One more thing I scared, breaking the ampoule if I drop it. Have to be really careful with it. 
Break the neck of the ampoule to use.
I use this Phyto ampoules in conjunction with Phytopolleine and its shampoo. I use 3 times a week. Usually will do it in the evening. Starting with the Phytopolleine half and hour before shower. 

Ready to be use.
Then after shower on tower dry hair, I will apply the ampoule onto my scalp. Followed by gentle massage. 

I know the instruction stated to use the whole ampoule for 1 time application. But I usually use 1 ampoule for 1 week application. That is divide 1 ampoule to use for 3 times. 

The result came significant in 2 months time. My mum first notice it when she started to vacuum less hair on the floor in my room. 

My hair started to break and drop less. Also it look much more healthy. Satisfying results for me.

I will strongly recommend this excellent product. :D

Review: Xndo Instant Noodle Chicken Mee Goreng

Xndo Instant Noodle Chicken Mee Goreng (136g)
Today review is on Xndo Instant Noodle Chicken Mee Goreng.

I do feel that the price of the mee goreng itself is not really worth buying. Apart from the noodle texture taste different, the rest of the mee goreng ingredients is the same as normal mee goreng. Taste still ok as the ingredients are the same as normal once. But price, I feel not worth it.

My Review
Being it member, I actually received a mailer from my mail box, saying that I may collect a box of Xndo Instant Noodle Chicken Mee Goreng for free. Hurray!!! 

The box of the noodle is quite pretty. As usual, the facts about the noodle on the box. 
How the packet look like.
Opening the box, it contain a noodle pack, chilli powder, seasoning powder, oil and kecap soya sauce. 
What is in the box.
As usual with Xndo product, I will put the noodle pack to cook in boiling water. While doing so, I empty the other ingredients onto a plate. 
empty sauce into plate.
How the noodle look like.
Same as normal mee goreng, I will stir the sauce and noodle. 

So how does it taste? As usual, the noodle taste like those not softly cooked mee sua. Its not soft and its a bit chewy. Hmm....not exactly the type of noodle texture I like. 

The sauce? Well, its just normal mee goreng sauce, nothing can really go wrong here. 
After mixing the noodle with the sauce.
I do feel that the price of the mee goreng itself is not really worth buying. Apart from the noodle texture taste different, the rest of the mee goreng ingredients is the same as normal mee goreng. Taste still ok as the ingredients are the same as normal once. But price, I feel not worth it.

Review: Trilogy Blemish Control Gel (Sponsored)

Trilogy Blemish Control Gel (20ml)
Today review is on Trilogy Blemish Control Gel. I receive this from Fusion cosmetic during Christmas in 2014. Thanks once again to Fusion Cosmetic for pampering me. :)

This blemish control gel really did help to clear away my blemish without leaving any dry patches or scar on my skin. Although it does not do it fast enough in my opinion, it does finally do away with my blemish. Its another brand of blemish control product to add on to my list.

It is a highly effective botanical blemish blaster: 
  • Salicylic acid: helps to clear congestion and debris.

The blemish gel came with a tube.

The gel itself is beach in color and has a gel like texture.

How the gel look liked.
As for smell, I didn't really smell anything while applying the gel. 

I have tried to apply the gel to some big and small blemish on my skin. During application, I did not really feel any biting effect or anything at all. It feels cooling after apply. 

The blemish itself takes a few days to clear away. Having been using blemish removal from other brand, I personally do feel that this trilogy blemish control gel takes a bit more time to clear away blemish. 

But one thing it does better is that it does not leave any dry patches or scar on my skin when the blemish is about to heal.
