Great thread! Cos I wasn't sure the Q I'm about to ask is suitable enough for its own thread. Anyways.

I was wondering are there any other differences between tester perfumes and normal perfumes besides the box and the tester bottle has no lid?

Thanks

I wonder if i can make my hair curly by tying it into little buns when it's wet and just keep it like that till it's dry. I wash my hair and put it up while wet sometimes b/c it'll be easier to do; after hours of that, my hair is curly when i put it down and it actually stayed for a long time. i wonder if i keep doing that day after day, will it last up to days and even weeks? I know of course going to the salon will guarantee about that more, but im just curious about this home-made way though.

Thanks.

whats the difference between salon hair dying and home hair dying?

Great thread! Cos I wasn't sure the Q I'm about to ask is suitable enough for its own thread. Anyways.

I was wondering are there any other differences between tester perfumes and normal perfumes besides the box and the tester bottle has no lid?

Thanks

the normal perfumes have stronger scents and last longer because they can go over the body move evenly.

I wonder if i can make my hair curly by tying it into little buns when it's wet and just keep it like that till it's dry. I wash my hair and put it up while wet sometimes b/c it'll be easier to do; after hours of that, my hair is curly when i put it down and it actually stayed for a long time. i wonder if i keep doing that day after day, will it last up to days and even weeks? I know of course going to the salon will guarantee about that more, but im just curious about this home-made way though.

Thanks.

doing that everyday will not last for several days until you wash your hair again. its like straightening your hair, washing your hair make its all wavy again.

how do you use a boar bristle brush?

i was told they're good for your hair b/c of the natural oils or whatever, and to brush your hair with it before you shampoo to detangle your hair. but when i use it, i feel like it's not brushing my hair. lol. it feels kind of like a flat surface. so i brush it really hard and can feel the bristles, but i think that's bad for it. am i brushing my own hair wrong?

er...from what i know, protein helps build and regenerate body tissue. at that is how those body builders bulk up and all. lol by taking in protein shakes.

and it is also essentially used as energy for the body.

i don't use those protein shakes and all that, but then, that is all i know from the top of my head.

Hair straightener:

My hair is naturally straight, a bit wavy at times. I recently got layers and want to style it by straightening it. Would you recommend that I spurge on an expensive straightening iron or will an inexpensive one like Conair be fine? I don't want to spend so much money, but then again I want a good one that works for a reasonable price.

My mother bought me Acnopure products, but the directions are in Japanese. It comes with "Dry Essence", "Clean Lotion", and "Night Off". Do I use Dry Essence and the Clean Lotion morning and night? And how many squirts from the bottle am I supposed to use? Because when I squirt it once it seems so little.

Maybelline's full and soft waterproof is really good. It helps hold a curl too. I wear eyeshadow mascara and eyeliner. I don't feel complete if I don't do all 3. Since it makes my eyes looks 10 times better. I have single eyelids btw. Makeup is a personal choice. Do you think you look better without it or with it? If you are worried that eyeliner and mascara is too much. Put mascara on curl lashes and put a thin line of eyeliner on close to your lashline. It should look natural. :thumbsup

Does vaseline or olive oil make your eyelashes longer?

dont know but then vaseline is NOT good to put on the eyes...can develope an infection but then what i did hear is you take vitamine E, i guess those gel capsules and you use one, and put it on your eye lashes. it should make them grow longer, and healthier...

I like to use Neosporin with a band-aid. You shouldn't really pick... but I found out that Neosporin works really great in those cases...!

There is no difference. They just pulled one out as a sample. The one they pulled out may have had a damaged box during shipment but the product itself will not be different.

My recommendation would be to go for a more expensive one. The cheap one snags on your hair so you might end having to spend more money on fixing your hair from the damage!

I personally have never heard of this until just a few days ago when I was reading reviews on products for acne...

MaMa lotion is a brand. This is its official website http://mamalotion.com/ . Some have been saying that it works very well for acne scarring but as I would have to order it from a US website, and it's not that cheap (US$44.50), I would like to seek advice first. And also if this can be used if I still have active acne.

Thanks.

I have a question about using the lens.... I just ordered a pair of Dueba, and 2 pairs of Geo lenses. Am I suppose to get some kind of cleansing solution on my own to soak the contacts in? if I need to get one, any recommendations for good solutions? I've never worn lenses in my life... so I have absolutely NO IDEA what I'll need to have for the circle lenses. Besides the cleansing solution, do I need to have anything else?

Yes. For all contact lens care, you actually MUST MUST MUST (can't stress this enough) buy solution. Opti-Free Express is one that comes recommended by most optometrists and is also easily available and fairly cheap. It's a cool no-rub solution (most of them are right now) and they have generic solutions available.

I use Aosept Solutions with hydrogen peroxide. It probably works the same way, but I like Aosept better because after 4hrs, it neutralizes to a saline solution. But Aosept is kinda pricey and you have to separately buy a special lens case.

You can buy protein enzyme tablets that are typically made for rigid gas-permeable (hard) lenses that will clear up protein deposits. Do that a couple of times a month (about once every week or two weeks should be fine) to keep your lenses clean and happy.

*don't forget to soak your lenses in your NEW solution at least overnight before putting them in! happy wearing!

Will skin lighteners make your facial skin blotchy? The ones that even out your skin tone, not the ones that totally bleach your skin.

hello i want to know about the basic skincare?
what is the use of a toner and a emulsion?
what do we need after cleaning the face?


hi apple, i'm not really sure what's the most correct skincare is, since it usually differs with the person's skin type. but i can share with you my experience.

i think the most basic skincare would be removing makeup with make up remover (if you have makeup on), then cleansing your face with a cleanser that suits your skin type (eg for dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, etc). after cleansing your face, you should use a toner to remove any excess dirt. toner also helps to minimize your pores so your skin can look more flawless... :D

then if you're going out in the day, you should continue with a sunblock (at least spf 15 i think) to prevent your skin from going dark and also to prevent skin cancer from the uv rays. currently, i'm using a sunblock that's also the moisturiser, so i skip the moisturising part... then after dat you can continue with your makeup.

at night, you can use a night cream/moisturiser. moisturiser will keep our skin hydrated, especially if we are sleeping in an air-conditioned room.

then, once in a week, you can also treat your skin with a exfoliation (to remove the dead skin cells) and then a mask (for deep-moisturising).

yup, basically that's my daily routine. hope it helps... :)>-

Yay, I'm glad there's a thread where we can asks questions. Kay, so I want to change my hair colour to blonde. Oh and I'm Asian. But I want to try it out first to see if it looks good. But by using temporary or semi-perminants would I still get the same effect as Mari Yaguchi or Ayumi Hamasaki?
Typically it would be nice if I can get these hair colours ;

Please tell me if there are any good products to use for changing my hair for a short period of time.

Boar bristle and other natural hair brushes are good for your hair because of their ionic charges, a similar principle is used for negative-ion hair irons and hair dryers. It makes your hair lay smoother, it makes the scales on the hair lay down too so its shinier. The opposite can happen if you use a plastic brush, it builds up a static charge and makes the hair puff out.

Only problem I have with them is that the bristles tend to be too soft, and are not very good for detangling. Try to get one with the stiffest bristles you can find. Also I have not had very good results with the ones that have plastic bristles mixed in, usually have the same static problem.

Mm.. I've always wanted to know whether a boar bristle brush is actually good.. has someone tried it and has it made any difference at all?



how do you use a boar bristle brush?

i was told they're good for your hair b/c of the natural oils or whatever, and to brush your hair with it before you shampoo to detangle your hair. but when i use it, i feel like it's not brushing my hair. lol. it feels kind of like a flat surface. so i brush it really hard and can feel the bristles, but i think that's bad for it. am i brushing my own hair wrong?
