Korean 6 Step Hair Treatment @ Jeff Lee The Hair Company, Damansara Uptown

Thursday, 16 March 2017

If you follow me on social media closely, you would know that I have been frequenting Number 76 quite a bit. But since my sponsorship program ended with them late last year, I was moving around looking for new salons in KL. I'm not saying that I'm leaving Number 76 but I was really keen to try other salons in KL after being a loyal customer for few years now. My curiosity peaked and I was scrolling through Facebook and Instagram day and night looking at potential hair salons.

I have shortlisted a few, but there was one that stood out from the rest.

Why?
Because this salon had an huge hearted employee, Domo Sam --
he was the one that "discovered" the uncle who was peddling PokΓ©mon soft toys in Damansara Uptown to cover his medical expenses.




That post went viral in Sept 2016 when PokΓ©mon Go was at its peak. Not many people know about the person who posted it, but I felt that this person should also be recognized for his efforts in bringing awareness to the community. 

He tagged Jeff Lee The Hair Company - Uptown branch, which was also a great to promote the salon he's working at. So that was when I paid closer attention to that salon. 




After some digging, I also saw that Jeff Lee also has sponsored some very famous Instagram influencers and their hair outcomes were really enviable!

Naturally, I was gamed to try out this salon and plus point is that it's not that far from where I live. I live in Petaling Jaya, and this salon is just a stone throw away from where I am.



This is my hair condition before stepping into Jeff Lee The Hair Company.

Started off with washing my hair...






...... they served coffee and some snacks during my visit.


Price List


Before treatment begins, my stylist - Ms. Lizza Wong snapped a close up pic of my scalp to explain to me my current condition. Apparently I have some dandruff situation thus she will be helping me to reduce it by the end of the treatment process.





So I was recommended to do a Korean 6-Step Hair Treatment (they also have 2-Step and 4-Step) using Kerastase products.









A shoulder and back massage are included too!

Here's my scalp "AFTER"

Btw remember I mentioned about the PokΓ©mon Uncle earlier?
Yep, I visited him right after my hair treatment.
He is still peddling PokΓ©mon toys at the HSBC Damansara Uptown branch along the same road (located a few doors away).




I managed to grab Pikachu and Chikorita!


MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

To be honest, I was not expecting much for a hair treatment because my hair type is bleached and severely damaged at the ends. Seriously when I say my hair is damaged, it's VERY DAMAGED due to constant bleaching every month the year before (2016). It is evident in my pictures especially when I did not style my hair. Very Damaged being difficult to comb my hair (I can only comb from the roots to the middle), many split ends, constant tangling at the ends and many hair fall outs and breakage. It is always tangled in knots and it's very unmanageable even on normal days. I was only thinking that this treatment would last me until I wash my hair, but to my SURPRISE...

This hair lasted me until one FULL month!

I'm not even kidding.

I'm not paid to write this, so when I say something is good, it's really good!
That's why I plan to visit here again very soon.




POST HAIR TREATMENT

After 3 days, this is how my hair looks. 





I'm beyond ecstatic with the results!

I did not wash my hair to preserve whatever treatment that was still in my hair. The curls were still present and it gave me an effortless out-of-bed hair, which I absolutely love!
😍 πŸ˜ πŸ˜

So, if you're looking to repair your tresses, do give Jeff Lee THC a visit!
I'm sure they will take good care of your locks and maintain the silkiness for a long time

Clarins adds Acerola Fruit into the *NEW* White Plus skincare range

Friday, 3 March 2017


As one who have sensitive skin, perhaps you may want to avoid whitening or anti-aging skincare products to control unwanted breakouts or allergic reactions. I, for one tend to shy away from these because I truly understand the "pains" of having such conditions.


BUT!


If you are looking for a whitening skincare regime, you'd be glad to know that Clarins has just launched a new line of whitening products, infused with ACEROLA - (that's the cherry fruit in layman terms) — specifically using the fruit and seed extracts from a cherry grown in Northeastern Brazil.


Source: http://www.buro247.sg/beauty/trends/cherry-bomb-how-the-humble-fruit-can-give-you-more.html

 




With 20 years of whitening expertise, Clarins has made a major scientific advance in understanding hyperpigmentation through the MELA-EXO-SYSTEM (the exosomes that carry the protein messengers that trigger the development of pigmentation; so that melanin is not over-produced) and discovered the acerola fruit extract. The seed extract meanwhile enhances cell oxygenation so the skin is more radiant and translucent.

Thus the new Clarins Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum is introduced.

It will be great with people with dark spots or hyperpigmentation, or those who want to avoid them from forming later on in life (as they say, prevention is always better than cure).












*

To find out more, Clarins cordially invites you to discover the new White Plus brightening regimen, to turn on a spotless glow!


“Turn on the glow” event details as per below, Clarins will have one to one skin check by their skincare specialist, customize samples, exclusive deals, games and more, throughout the event.


"TURN ON THE GLOW" EVENT
1. North Court Midvalley: 27 February – 5 March 2017
2. Skin Spa One Utama: 7 March – 12 March 2017


*


I've yet to try the product as I am currently on sticking on a basic skincare routine for my sensitive skin (apparently staying "basic" is working tremendously for me, I'll share with you my current upkeep soon, promise!).

But I've read that the serum is pretty fluid and absorbs quickly into the skin, so I'm really hoping to tap it on my face soon *fingers crossed*



White Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum retails at RM350 (30ml) & RM460 (50ml) at Clarins counters nationwide. They are also available on their website and offer free shipping with purchase of RM250 and above!

Switch, Save & WIN with Watsons Brand!

Monday, 20 February 2017
You may have heard this phrase... "Switch & Save with Watsons Brand" if you frequently watch TV but do you actually know what does it mean?

If you don't already know, Watsons is having a campaign where they encourage their customers to use "Watsons Branded" products. YES, Watsons do actually have a lot of health and beauty products under their belt, and up till today, they are still expanding their line of products!

Just before the Chinese New Year, Watsons recently rewarded 10 lucky Facebook fans to a lovely treat -- a 1 minute FREE SHOPPING SPREE with Watsons! Fans were alstreated to special meet and greet session with celebrity friends Amber Chia & FS (Fuying and Sam) at Watsons store, Sunway Velocity Mall.



Over the years, I have been frequenting Watsons the most, out of all pharmacies in Malaysia. I find that their Watsons Membership entices me to stay loyal with them because they always have special Member's promotions every now and then.


Since this post is about using Watsons brand products, I will share with you some of my personal favourites from Watsons that I have tried and enjoyed using! πŸ˜


It is said that this Hair Pro by Watsons range works well with heat styling products. It also claims to be of salon quality and is made in Japan with certified natural organic Hybrid Rice Extract and Green Tea Extract. Formulated with NanoRepair-EL which can penetrate into each hair strand to improve elasticity, smoothness, suppleness and shine - this product is also free from Parabens, Mineral Oils, Silicones, UV Absorbers and Artificial Colourants.

I was skeptical reading all these claims, but my... this hair mask is really of GREAT QUALITY! I have tried so many hair treatment masks to cure my dead hair (no thanks to constant bleaching) and this miracle product does GIVE LIFE to my locks! I kid you not!!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜
What's so awesome about it is that it's now on SALE!!! RM13 for 200g (NP RM42.90).



I once doubted this too, that a Watsons brand can be so good. I was proven wrong again!
This product can do wonders for your dehydrated skin!
I ran out of this while on my trip to China 2 years ago, and I bought this at Watsons China during winter season. Oh the wonders of this little blue bottle...!!!

Do yourself a favour and get your hands on this while it's having a price cut now... RM8 for 50ml (NP RM17.90). Yep, I actually paid about RM17.90 when I repurchased this in China. It is as good, if not better than everyone's Holy Grail Avene spray πŸ˜



Who hasn't tried Watsons' Wet Tissues yet? With so many fragrances available, you'd definitely be spoilt for choices! I always go for either Green Tea, Sakura, Rose, Ocean or Lavender. With their frequent PWP promo, what's there not to like about these?

Watsons Wet Tissues are high quality, thick and alcohol-free. Yep, they also have baby wipes, makeup remover wipes, anti-bacterial wipes, and the list goes on....
NP RM5.90 for a pack of 3, but always on a promotion such as Buy 2nd one at 30% / Buy 2 Free 1.



One of the first few Watsons brand products I ever tried is their sheet masks. I used to purchase their Green Tea masks so much until they stopped production sometime in 2015. I swear their Green Tea masks were the only sheet masks I used during 2013-2015. But that didn't stopped me from trying out their other masks offerings!

Other noteworthy masks are Water 360 Hydration Mask, Tencel Double HA mask (they collaborated with Korean beauty mask giant, Temcel to produce these high quality masks!!!) and their iconic Bird's Nest masks. All these masks I mentioned target dry skin (that's me!) and it's also great for those who travel frequently (travelling dehydrates your skin).

The masks are usually never more than RM10 each. Buy them during promo to save even more! πŸ˜ƒ





High quality plasters, YES PLEASEEEE!!!
YES I always buy plasters from Watsons, they also sometimes have cartoon plasters, so do keep an eye out for them! (you know how sometimes those licensed companies charge a bomb for their cartoon collaboration? Not with Watsons brand!!!)

A box of plasters will not set you more than RM10 per box. What a steal!




Bought this on a whim, being the beauty junkie that I am... and pleasantly surprised by this! It's luxurious cotton without the usual fibre, allows me to utilize toner and essence to its optimum WITHOUT ANY WASTAGE.

Dream product, with such a decent price tag.
Google premium cotton pads and you will know what I mean πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
NP RM5.90 for 180 pieces
