Review: Biolage FiberStrong Shampoo,Conditioner & Mask

Whenever I get too stressed out, I notice my body feel unusually sluggish while my hair becomes so dry and brittle that it's often more prone to breakage. To be honest, the sheer volume of my hair fall after bathing is becoming truly bothersome so I started using hair products that are specifically created to target my mild hair loss problem. The timing of Matrix's introduction of their newest line, Biolage FiberStrong, could not have been better. It was just what I needed at the moment.
Product Description:
Mimicking the strength of Bamboo, FiberStrong is a hair care range that provides weak, fragile hair with strength & flexibility. With the Pelicure Service available in salons, Matrix recommends women to continue maintaining their hair at home with FiberStrong Shampoo,Conditioner and Mask. These are professional hairdresser prescribed products that can be availed in Matrix salon partners.

Matrix Chairs of Change: A Cut Worth Taking!

Would you be willing to donate your crowning glory to children who needs them more? I definitely would - if only my hair is long enough. Most of us put too much importance on our hair but we should remember that after all that's said and done, hair is still hair - whatever you do, it'll still grow out. That said, I have nothing but absolute support to Matrix's Chairs of Change. We have nothing to lose here but with everything to gain. Read on to know more. :)

Every year, an additional 3,500 children in the Philippines struggle with various types of cancer, affecting their confidence in all aspects of their life. In an effort to help uplift the lives. of these children, Matrix, The No. 1 American Salon Brand in the world, takes on the challenge to gather hairdressers and Filipino women to make a difference in more ways than one with the Matrix 8-lnch Cut for Cancer Challenge.
 Leading up to October 2014, Matrix in partnership with Kythe Ateneo, call upon Pinays to join this worthy movement by cutting off and donating 8 inches of hair for the benefit of Filipino children wit~ 
cancer. At the same time, volunteer hair dressers from partner institutions. David's Salon will be donating their time on October 25 to do the stylish haircuts for free.

Watsons Wonders: Hair Heroes Beauty Box

Our hair is the crown we don't remove. I can't remember where exactly I read this phrase but it's been stuck in my head ever since. I agree, completely. As in skincare, I strongly believe that it is an absolute must to take care of our hair. Before anything else, we must keep it healthy because it's one of the first things that people notice about us and we don't want to be labeled for something negative, of course.  When my hair is great, instead of having to iron my hair into submission every morning, I just have to air-dry it while doing my makeup and then maybe iron my bangs for a bit and then I'm good to go. This is basically why having a great hair is of an utmost importance for me - it cuts my preparation time in half!
And this common beauty concern is the target of the latest Watsons Beauty Box. I believe Watsons also released a similar box early last year but unlike most monthly subscription beauty boxes, Watsons Beauty Box is a seasonal offering (once a year, I guess) and it's more than 6 times the size!

September 2014 BDJ Box: Beauty Innovations

I'm baaaack! A day late actually since I had to go to the hospital yesterday but nonetheless, I'm back and hopefully, more active than before. :) After the stressful 5-month review, packages have piled up in my room so expect a lot of hauls, unboxing and review posts in the coming days. Some, like this one, are a bit late but that never stopped me from posting my overdue BDJ Unboxing posts before what the heck. Haha.  It's already mid-October and what I'll be sharing with you is last month's box. Hey, the contents are still worth sharing. :)
The September box was HUGE! It's the same size as the previous exclusive boxes that BDJ released - about twice the size of their regular boxes.  It's heavy, too, which is a good sign because it means I'll be getting a lot of full-sized products as opposed to just samples and sachets. Like I said, I've been living in an apartment in Manila during the review season so I wasn't able to open my packages until this weekend. I already saw a lot of photos of last month's box so I already know what's inside but BDJ Boxes never lose their touch - it's still exciting to open it. :)

Heroine Make: A Royal Arrival

Last month I was invited to yet another brand launching and this time, it was actually one that I was honestly looking forward to. I've been a silent reader/follower of Project Vanity and I've heard her talk about the brand a couple of times before. I thought, if Liz genuinely likes this brand, then it has to be really good. So without hesitation, I skipped a day of review school and hopped on a cab to attend the event that was held in Makati Shangri-La. And no, I did not regret missing review school for this event. :)
A little background: Heroine Make is a Japanese-manufactured makeup line with ten years of history of turning women into princesses since 2005. It launched a revolutionary range of eye makeup in Japan since then. The brand has become a familiar sight to shoppers in Hong Kong and Singapore. Now, Heroine Make is spreading the wide manga eyes towards the Philippines. Heroine Make, like Pixy Cosmetics, is also under the umbrella of Mandom Philippines Corporation.

August 2014 BDJ Box: Luscious Locks

Oh my, it's been a while since I last shared a haul post here. Heck, it's been a while since I last bought anything for myself. I can't wait for the board exams to be over and done with - I can't explain how stressful the last few months have been for me. In less than 3 weeks, I'll be taking what seems to be the hardest exam I'll ever have take in my entire life. I can already feel the pressure especially with the job interview I have for tomorrow. Sheesh! I'm freaking out again! So, as always, I turn to my blog to calm myself. I love how this blog has been my release - my little paradise away from all the pressure. <3
 Talking about how busy I was for months.. I owe you a lot of reviews and whatnot. But before we get to that, I'll start with this overdue BDJ Unboxing post. This is actually last month's box but like I always say it's better late than never. Excuses, I know. Haha. You can't blame a girl for prioritizing her studies, can you? :P
