Sulfate-Free Shampoo

I know it’s not the most exciting topic, but I think I’ve spoken about scalp problems before, and to be honest, the only thing that really helped me get rid of them were sulfate-free shampoos. I used to not really pay much attention to hair products, as long as I liked how they smelled, but when I started getting really itchy build-up with worrisome patches of dry, flaky skin, I started to take notice. My first step was to ditch conditioner, just to eliminate the number of products (and therefore, lessen the build-up) I used in my hair. My hair suffered a little, but my main concern was really to get rid of my scalp issues. My next step was to go more natural and pay attention to ingredients. I chose to eliminate SLS or sodium lauryl sulfate, as it’s a common ingredient that has been known to cause some problems for a lot of people. As it turns out, seeking out sulfate-free shampoos was the right step for me. Although I still have occasional …

Kracie Natululu Natural Skin Conditioner*

I received these awesome “skin conditioners” a few days ago from Kracie* in the Rice Extract and Yuzu (Citrus) Extract variants. I don’t usually get too excited about body products, and I left these alone for a while until I saw them again on Liz’s Instagram.

It’s also got a plant-based Ceramide Mixture that nourishes the skin. At first, the thought of the texture put me off—I thought it was going to be similar to body oil—but this is straight up liquid that gets absorbed into the skin fairly quickly. Which makes me love it because it’s hard to wait for lotion to dry before going out in this heat. Really pretty much the best summer companion! The Kracie Natululu Skin Conditioners* are allergy-tested, fragrance-free, less acidic, coloring-free, mineral oil-free. What’s awesome about it, too, is that it can be used for the face. I usually use a face oil, but if I want something …

New from Beauty Box Corp.: Kracie

About two weeks ago, I got a package from Beauty Box Corp., the Philippine distributors of K-Palette, Cure, Fairydrops and Prostyle Fuwarie. Kracie is the latest addition to their lineup of Japanese brands, available now in Beauty Bar branches. The Pure Savon Body Wash* (Php 545 for 300ml) is made of a highly concentrated formula that lathers really well, using only just one pump. It contains moisturizers, shea butter, and Soapwort Extract. I have both scents, Classic Floral (green) and Rose Blend (pink). It’s great to know that this is made of plant-based surfactants/washing ingredients. The Aroma Resort line has two products, the Body Milk* (Php 495 for 220ml) and the Hand Cream* (Php 295 for 70ml) both of which I have in Shine Orange and Bergamot. The Aroma Resort series is enriched with abundant fruit and vegetable essences and a long-lasting scent. The essences include extracts from tomato, carrot, and kiwi, as well as Peach Essence, Orange Essence, and Avocado Oil. Aroma Resort products are also formulated with Rose Essence and Apricot Seed Oil …
