Sun Smart: Budget Body Sunscreen

We've heard so much about how we should be slathering on sunscreen like no tomorrow. It's actually easier said than done. Whenever I squeeze those sunscreen out of their tubes, a bell will starting ringing at the back of my head and a voice will say "that's 10% of what you just paid and it's only for 1 application". LOL. Alright alright... It's not as creepy as it sounds like. But truth be told, that's what I feel every time I use sunscreen. This doesn't happen with other product though. Weird, I know. Maybe that's because you tend to pay a bit more for sunscreen, considering we only get like 30ml or 40ml of products (I'm talking to you Lancome!).

While I was preparing for my island trip last month, I just thought "that's it, I'm going on the hunt for the perfect budget sunscreen". I've looked high and low, smelled like 10 bottles of sunscreen til I thought I'm going to get high on sunscreen (is that even possible?), and finally found one that has the right balance on value for money, no crazy sunscreen smell, and feels perfect.

Sun Smart Series

Are you sun smart? Do you cringe at the sight of the sun? Or jump for joy and squeal whenever there is the slightest hint of sunshine?

What I'm Using Right Now

As my first post (after such a long break), I think it'd be great to do an updated "What I'm Using Now" post. It's been a while since my previous one, and most of the stuff (say 50%) I use has definitely changed.

So, here goes...


Shampoo - Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo and Redken Scalp Relief Dandruff Control Shampoo

Conditioner - Redken Scalp Relief Dandruff Control Conditioner

Hair Mask - TIGI Bed Head Treat Me Right hair mask (Still loving this! ;) )

Still Alive?

Yes. I'm still alive. =D How long has it been? 6 months? More like 8 I think. LOL.

I really apologize for the long blogging hiatus. It has been a long 8 months for me. As some of you might know, I was applying for graduate school admission for Fall 2010, and the application part itself already took up all of my time and energy. Seriously. After a 10 hours of work, I'd come back home, all exhausted and working on my application already. There's always something to do. However, sadly, the results weren't favorable. Sigh. I admit that was really discouraging and heartbreaking (after all that I've put into it).

But fear not, here I am, back in business. I have lots of reviews lining up and a couple of exciting stuff to show all of you.

And lastly, I'd like to thank all of you who are still here for me even after the long hiatus. =) You guys/gals are awesome!

Stay tune...
