Dae Haircare Shampoo and Conditioner Review

dae shampoo conditioner

 

Hello all. It feels such a long time since I have written here. I miss you all terribly. It also feels like a century ago since I have held a camera in my hands, and I am afraid of losing my love for art and beauty. However, I guess I have not lost that touch after all. I am now slowly back from outer space. I feel like I have missed out on a lot of the latest beauty releases, so I will be reviewing some beauty goodies soon and some of my favorite reads and whatever it is I am up to. But before that, there is one haircare brand I would like to review in this post. It is a brand that fascinated me because I have read some subpar reviews about it. Therefore, my curious brain naturally wanted to investigate whether the Dae haircare products are something I should skip. In this review, I am featuring the Dae shampoo + conditioner.

Shampoo

The scent is amazing and is one of the most well-scented shampoos I have ever tried. There is something nostalgic about the scent, which reminds me of the scent commonly found in most shampoos in the pacific. It is a blend of fresh floral with a tropical island vibe, which makes me think that the shampoo is ideal for summer because of its scent. When it comes to the texture and overall performance of the shampoo, I realize that I have such a different opinion compared to the others who have tried it. Most people say that the shampoo made their hair dry, yet it works the opposite for me. My hair did not feel dry after using it, and in fact, my hair felt a lot cleaner. The texture is very smooth, and it lathers very well with just a minimum amount of the product.

Conditioner

The conditioner is also a very good haircare product, in my opinion. The scent is relatively mild when compared to the shampoo, but I like it that way. The overall feel of the conditioner is not heavy, and there is no need to use a lot of it. A tiny drop can cover most hair strands, and it does not add any residue to the hair. The product is certified clean at Sephora, and it does keep the hair moisturized, especially on these cold, dry days. It can also work for all hair types.

Overall, I am impressed with the shampoo and conditioner by Dae haircare. Not only is the packaging aesthetically pleasing and highly Instagrammable :-), I am amazed by how the products worked well for my hair. I am not quite certain why some folks had an opposite reaction to such haircare products, but my experience with the shampoo and conditioner has been wonderful so far.

Samaya Kapha Eye Cream Review

Samaya Ayurveda eye cream

 

Hello. Here is a quick eye cream review that I have been enjoying these days. The Samaya Kapha Eye Cream is the latest eye cream to hit my vanity counter, and I am happy to report that it works very well after weeks of trying it on my undereyes. It is one of the newest additions to the Samaya Ayurvedic all-natural skincare line that is based on an individual’s dosha (energy).

 

Samaya Ayurveda eye cream review

 

Prior to using the Samaya Eye Cream, I have been experimenting again on a couple of eye creams that I mostly used on rotation. I can say that I liked a few, but none of them really impressed me. As I was thinking of going back to my old favorites, I had the opportunity to try the Samaya Kapha Eye Cream, which I call a perfect natural undereye moisturizer. The feel of the eye cream is not like most eye creams which moisturize the undereye skin for only a few minutes until the skin becomes dry again. The Samaya Kapha Eye Cream is different and unique in its consistency because the texture has the perfect blend of fluidness and creaminess. It feels a tad slippery and somewhat creamy at the same time, making it very easy to spread all over the undereyes. This type of consistency keeps the undereye skin moisturized for a long time. The formula does set on the skin right away, but it does not make the skin feel rough. Further, the formula does not pill and is easy to blend with concealers and foundations.

Since the product is all-natural and made of clean ingredients, there is no discerning scent, and my skin did not get irritated from the product. Most importantly, the product comes in an easy-to-dispense pump, and the size is considerably large for an eye cream. For me, that is a big plus, given that I tend to use eye cream products at least twice a day. The Samaya Kapha Eye Cream has caffeine, green tea, and probiotics, among others, aiming to reduce puffy and tired undereyes. Indeed, my undereyes look more revitalized and less puffy as I continue to use the product.

Overall, the Samaya Kapha Eye Cream is another outstanding all-natural clean skincare from Samaya Ayurveda. Just like their moisturizers, cleansers, treatments, and exfoliants, I highly recommend their line of eye creams, especially the Kapha Eye Cream.

 

Note. Big thanks to Samaya Ayurveda skincare for providing the Kapha Eye Cream. The review and opinion herein are solely by the editor.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Foundation + Concealer + Primer Review

Giorgio Armani Makeup Beauty review

 

Hey there everybody. Happy September to you all. Soon, we will be falling for fall :-). Here is a review that I thought of posting but never got the chance to post until now. Please excuse me for my current MIA situation. I am currently very busy and will not be able to respond to your messages quickly. Rest assured that I have read all of them and will respond as soon as I have the time. Thank you mucho.

 

Armani Luminous Silk Face and Under Eye Concealer in #5

 

So, back to this long-overdue review, the Giorgio Armani beauty is one of the most exciting beauty products to always have in your purse. In line with the Chanel and Dior beauty, Armani’s makeup line is superb and well-crafted. I am a big fan of their makeup bases, powders, and lip products. These last few days of summer and even last year’s, I have been using and testing some Armani products, and I am very satisfied with each product’s quality.

 

Here are my top picks in Armani foundations, concealers, and primers.

 

Armani Neo Nude Foundation in #5

 

Neo Nude Foundation in #5Light with a neutral undertone. Marketed as a lightweight hydrating foundation infused with skincare benefits. This foundation is meant to give a natural glowy finish. To me, this feels like a tinted moisturizer that is ideal to use on good/clear skin days because the coverage is light. There is no sticky feeling while wearing this, and this is the kind of foundation that is ideal for warm temperatures.

Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer – This is one of my most preferred primers ever due to the fluid consistency. This product feels like a skincare/primer hybrid, similar to the Milk Makeup Hydrogrip primer, also my holy grail. I have tried using this primer with just about any foundation, and the gripping power is very good. The fluid consistency is never sticky, and gives a moisturizing effect on the skin. I believe this is a great primer to combine with the Armani Neo Nude Foundation.

 

Armani Luminous Silk Face and Under-Eye Concealer in #5

 

Luminous Silk Face and Under-Eye Concealer in #5Light with neutral undertone. This concealer is an Allure Best of Beauty winner in 2020. I like this concealer a lot. This sets well on the skin, and this has medium coverage and a somewhat radiant finish due to the micro-shimmer effect. Meaning, the finish will not look so flat while you are wearing this. The texture is creamy but never sticky once the product sets on the skin. I find that it is easy to build this product on the blemishes I want to conceal, and the lasting power can be more than 4 hours.

Power Fabric Concealer in 4.5Light to medium with a golden undertone. I reviewed this concealer before, and I always love this in any season and at any temperature. The lasting power is impressive, and the finish does not crack on the skin. The coverage is full, and the finish is matte, yet will not look flat once the product sets on the skin. Additionally, this concealer will hide your blemishes, your feelings, and your sins, LOL. This will even hide your age. So, go try! You are welcome (kidding) :-).

 

Armani Power Fabric Compact Cream Foundation Balm in #4.5

 

Power Fabric Compact Cream Foundation Balm in #4.5 – What can I say? I love this product VERY MUCH. I am not sure about the bad reviews about this product, but this product is heaven-sent for me. Imagine having a full-coverage foundation packed in one gorgeous Armani compact? This is it. I am not sure why Armani called this a “balm”. To me, this is like a true creamy foundation with the concept of a cushion that you dab on the face in terms of application. I like the idea of this product because this is easy to carry. Also, the coverage is really good and will cover anything you want to cover. There is no need to keep packing the product on the skin, as one dab will usually work. If the packaging of this product is gorgeous, the packaging is also a caveat because it feels quite bulky. The product feels like there is too much packaging that it may be tricky to carry the product in small purses.
