Review: The Face Shop Keratin Intensive Conditioner

Annyeonghaseyo! You ought to know that I'm also into hoarding hair care goodies. Naturally, when I won a shopping spree at The Face Shop, I made sure to get one from its haircare line. I'm glad I did. For the past weeks, I've been indulging in this uber nicely scented intensive conditioner. It's emptied to the last drop!
The Face Shop Keratin Intensive Conditioner for Damaged Hair Care sells for  Php 350+ for 300ml.
  The Face Shop Keratin Intensive Conditioner Product Feature: The intensive care conditioner for damaged hair replenishes lost keratin proteins to illuminate your locks with body, bounce, and vitality while infusions of botanical extracts help to prevent split ends.
Swatch. It's the last drop. It has a very rich consistency. A dollop of it leaves my hair uber silky and soft all through out. Plus, I especially like the lingering scent. Foremost, more than the said benefits, it's the scent that prompted me to try this out at first glance. ;-D
Here's another intricate detail on usually is a trivial thing such as the pump head... leafy shaped complete with veins. 
Truth be told, I've been saving this post, because I was hoping to do an emptied-and-repurchased post for a review, just to really prove a point. It used to be relatively within striking distance on my price threshold, vs. Beauty Credit Somang's Red Flo Red Camellia Conditioner, which sells online for Php 700+ for a 750ml bottle.  Until recently, I found a store in Subic Bay selling a 500ml Red Flo conditioner for about the same price as the The Face Shop's, so I caved in. But I noticed a major difference, true to The Face Shop's intensive claim, it does leave my more hair tangle-free even with all the rumpling going on when I twist and turn against my pillows when sleeping vs. Red Flo's. With The Face Shop's, it's almost effortless to freshen up the next day. Overall, I have a fairly manageable hair albeit being recently colored, because I snipped the worst part (in fact I was left with a bob cut then), but it's growing okay, except more often than not, it needs conditioner, a relatively exceptional one, to keep it soft and silky all through out. I'm also getting into a preventive mode, because I'm planning to get brighter hair colors with highlights very soon.  I might need to pair it with a matching Keratin Shampoo the next time, just to savor its nourishing benefits.
Boo me, but it's this photo again from last time. I just loved how easily I went from curls, to wavy wind-blown hair do the next time around. Even with hair tying as my go-to hairstyle, I can easily pull a sleeker hair style. 
What's your hair care buddies? Please do share! ;-D

I'm currently using Dove both for my shampoo and conditioner. Dati I have a FaceShop shampoo na I super love but syempre it's not very practical since it's quite pricey than other shampoo so I switched :P

HI! This is kind of off topic, but I guess you're the best person who could answer. I've just been recently introduced to BB creams (IKR, as in, where have I been). What's the best brand? :)

Thank you!

PS: Mommy, are you KOrean? Part-KOrean? YOu look like one (if you're, I'm sure I'm the nth person who said that)

Hi Mommy: It's a tough choice, but I have to go for The Skin Shop Premium Secret BB Cream. The Skin Shop is available at Watson's SM Dept. Store. Although, I'm trying out a lot of other brands now, but I used this one for several FOTD posts. :) But if you're into eBay/online shopping, you can try the trial packs of SkinFood Platinum GrapeCell BB Cream, Innisfree's, Hera (HD Foundation), and miniature BB Cream. From those, you can choose what suits you best. :)

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
