Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring in Sweet Orange

I am getting a lot of inquiries about Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring and how the effect on the hair will hair look like. I already tried  three colors in the past: natural brown, wine red, and sweet orange.  So, I decided to share what my hair looked like when I applied the Sweet Orange one last November . Here it goes:

(Review) Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring in Wine Red

Seven (7) months ago, I posted about how I dyed my hair with Etude’s House Bubble Hair Coloring in natural brown. You can read about that post  here.  Guess what? I dyed my hair again but this time in wine red. It’s been actually almost a month now since I dyed my hair but I just remembered to write the review now after I chanced upon the pictures I took while arranging my files.

(Review) Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring

It’s been almost seven months since I had my hair dyed dark brown. Since I have my hair trimmed every other month, I can’t honestly expect my hair color to last for a year. I debated between two options: (1) grow out my black hair, or (2) have my hair dyed again. I went for the second option. My next dilemma was to have it done at a salon or I’ll do it on my own.

Having those dilemmas in mind, I chanced upon several Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring reviews. It’s not your usual “mix several cream and apply” type but it’s a “mix several solutions and apply bubble” type. YES. BUBBLES. All the reviews I’ve read said the product was great so I decided to try it out for myself.

Etude House Hair Bubble Coloring in Natural Brown.

I bought the #3 shade (Natural Brown). The box contained a cape, gloves, a bottle with a pump, and two sachets (one was the coloring solution, I guess, and the other was a conditioner treatment). There’s also an instruction leaflet but it was written in Korean so there was no use trying to understand. Thank the hair gods there were pictures included in the instructions.

So, how did I apply this thing on hair? After wearing the capes and the gloves, I poured the solution from one of the sachets to the solution in the pumping bottle, “swooshed” the bottle gently, then pumped bubbles from the bottle and applied it to my hair evenly. I left the bubbles in my hair for almost an hour then rinsed my hair afterwards.

(Review) Etude Pure Joy Calming Toner

 My Neutrogena non-alcoholic toner is about to be used up so I was looking for a new brand to try.  The Neutrogena toner is already non-comedogenic but I still suffered from occasional breakouts. I guess my skin is not compatible with the brand  or the other products I use.

 My search took me to a brand which is becoming a new favorite—Etude.  I asked the saleslady for a toner which is alcohol-free and mild. She referred to the Pure Joy Calming Toner.  This is how the product looks like:

Nice Packaging. =)

Etude Splurge


Stop if you can’t handle make-up talk!

I passed by SM Bicutan today and I happy to know that there’s already a branch of Etude House there. I’ve been wanting try their product line for a quite sometime now but SM Megamall is not my usual route so I haven’t tried any Etude product yet.



Anyway, Etude SM Bicutan just opened last Thursday and look at what I bought earlier! LOL. Talk about splurging: concealer and lipstick. My purchase was worth more than Php 500, so I got a free membership card and make-up remover. Not bad for a first purchase. The design of their product is so girly… pink and stuff. As much as I love make-up, shoes, bags and clothes, I an not really into things that are outright girly. LOL.

My make-up kit keeps getting crowded! Look!

Beware of Black Henna Tattoos

I am a fan of henna tattoos. Acck. If there isn’t a lot of restrictions placed on people with permanent tattoos, I’ve probably already have one etched on my back. Anyway, I can’t recall how many times I’ve had a henna tattoo. I never had an unpleasant experience with them, so I am confident that every time I get one, it would turn out okay. My latest experience with henna tattoo is a totally different story.

I got two tattoos when we went to Laiya last April 25: one on my nape and one on my right let. Miko and two of “cousin-in-laws” also had tattoos. My tattoos were okay for more than a week. The one on my nape was fading faster. However, last Monday, I felt weird bumps on my nape. Look at what I found:

Pardon my Vanity

I plan to upload a new theme. It’s a lot more complicated that I thought. Will explore that later. For now, I’m stuck with what WordPress has to offer. Anyway, onto my entry…

PCHRD will be celebrating its 28th anniversary this Friday. And just as I expected, there’s going to be a social event in the evening.  So, we, the staff are required to glam up a bit. I don’t usually put on a lot of make-up during ordinary office days because it would me make stand out in an office full of people who don’t bother with their get up anymore. But since Friday is a social event, I have a valid reason! Haha! And so… I was tinkering with my make up kit earlier and voila! I’m really sorry that I have to post this, but I am just so proud myself. 🙂 Continue reading
