Grace @ No.21 Friday, March 1, 2013

I know I'm kind of 'late' for this post but I still want to share with you. My February was great. I got to rest more, spend more time with my puppy, and went to fishing a lot! Although I am looking forward to do more things in March for example like Vegas trip,  see my best friend that I haven't get to see for years, more fishing, and update the kitchen + yards stuff..Anyways, let's go back to the point..

This is my third bottle that I've re-purchased. I just love the scent, how it makes my hair smooth and shine, and easy to use.  I usually use it at the tip of my hair when it's tangled or hard to comb. Especially when I use hair straightener, I use it before I start straighten my hair.

  I purchased this when I went to the K-town in L.A. I used to like The Face Shop when I was in Korea. Especially when i was teen just because the price was cheap but great quality products.

 I got this as a gift when my dad went to Germany for work. He bought me a full set of this Agatha Ruiz De La Prada Lip Balms and I thought I will never be able to use it by myself. So I gave it some to my friends and mom. I like this one especially Tutti Frutti because unlikely from the other ones, it has no color. Just white and smells like a bubble gum! I sometime use this on my cuticles. Love it! 
Thank you Dad

These vibrantly colored, super-fun lip balms are extremely effective and go on so silky. Throw one in your favorite bag, Agatha Ruiz De La Prada lip balms will happily go anywhere you do! The glory of fruit punch in a tin plus Vitamin E!

  2. I use and love the sleek and shine hair serum too! It make SUCH a difference with drying and straightening, and I even use it when I air dry my curly hair- keeps the frizz away and the hair drying soft. I'll have to give your other favorites a try :)

  3. Ditto - I use Some Kinda Gorgeous as a concealer, too! It's great to cover pimples and post-pimple pigmentation. Stays there all day and doesn't cake! Benefit should think about marketing it as a concealer. I love it more than Boi-ng.

    1. I agree! That is what i thought exactly. They should marketing it as a concealer:) xx

  4. Hi Grace,

    OMG!I use The Body Shop White Musk Smooth Satin Body Lotion too ゚ヽ(*´ω`)ノ゚
    Btw, Bio-oil won't leave your skin greasy? I want to try but the word "oil"... (T▽T)

    1. In my opinion, the body shop's body lotions are the best..
      Bio-oil is little greasy when you first apply on your skin but then the greasiness goes away really quick. I was scared because I don't like greasy stuff just like you and the word oil made me thought ewww. But this bio-oil is so awesome, you should try it! xx

  5. Great tips! Thank you! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
