Beauty Review: Coco & Eve Hair Masque with 5 in 1 Benefits!

Hey y'all! It's been a while!

I haven't had a chance to pop in for a while now since life has been pretty much hectic and work has been consuming most of my time, but I always do make it a point to still give myself a little TLC - regardless if it's for my hair, my skin or just my well-being in general because it's always important to shower yourselves with love even during the busiest of times!

With work, I also rarely have the time to visit salons for hair treatments because it usually takes up half a day of my time, and I rarely have much time to spare anymore. Thus, I really do appreciate any product that I can find that can still give my tresses it's needed nutrients and care.


I recently found out about this product, Coco & Eve after seeing the reviews online and on Instagram, and there were lots of bloggers raving about it. I did a search online and found out that its main ingredients were figs and raw virgin coconuts, and did not contain sulfate, phthalates and were also paraben free. 

Their ingredients are also sourced from Bali, Hawaii and the US - and are not tested on animals too! 



They are also known to have 5 benefits in 1 which includes:
1. Rejuvenate and revive parched hair, damaged by styling, heat, dyes and the environment.
2. Deeply condition to replenish lost moisture to hydrate even the thirstiest of tresses.
3. Improve texture and shine for silky soft, amazing hair.
4. Restore hair to its pure virgin state to treat split ends and tame that pesky frizz.
5. See and feel the difference after just one wash. 


The application of this Coco & Eve hair masque is also extremely easy. You just need to shampoo your hair as per usual and then apply the masque to your towel dried hair before leaving it on for 5-10mins!

After which, rinse with warm water and you're done! For dry hair, you're recommended to use it 2-3 times a week, whereas, for normal hair, you only need to use it 1-2 times a week. However, for those with oily hair, use just once a week and focus the product towards the ends of the hair and avoid the scalp!

You should also use the brush that comes along with the hair masque while applying it as their brush/tangle tamer (as they call it) has a special 2-tiered bristle technology, to detangle with minimal breakage and damage. 

But, if there's something that I don't really like about this product, it would definitely be the fact that the bottle is quite heavy and I definitely won't foresee myself bringing this along when I'm travelling. But, if there's really a need be, I'll just transfer some of it out of the bottle and into a smaller container! 



Other than it keeping my tresses healthy, I also love the coconut scent of the product! The hair masque really works wonders after just one use as my hair felt extremely soft and easy to glide through. I've been using this product for a week now, and I apply it every alternate day in case my hair doesn't become too oily. 

I also concentrate the product towards my hair ends and not let it touch my scalp as my ends can get really oily after all the curling, and my scalp tends to be pretty oily after a day out - and I don't wanna agitate it even more. Just remember to apply the hair masque sparingly as a little does go a long way here!


Hehe and yes, if you were wondering, you can also use this product together with your boyfriends/other halves as it's suitable for men too!

The puma basket hearts caught my attention, especially the olive and white ones! I love how the use of ribbon laces brings the sneakers an added touch of sophistication - and also helps to elevate whatever outfits you're pairing it with! 



And, of course, I gravitated towards the white sneaker styles. The Adidas sneaker that I'm holding is the male version, by the way!

Going Through The Week with Le Contour's Dresses

I'm sure many of you would have been through the whole "I have nothing to wear" dilemma especially in the mornings. And more ...

I'm sure many of you would have been through the whole "I have nothing to wear" dilemma especially in the mornings. And more often than not, you'll reach for the "safer" and "low maintenance" dress because ain't nobody has time to make such mind-boggling decisions in the morning.

For brands like Le Contour, they eliminate these problems by introducing the idea of timeless and presentable dresses that you can always turn to. And if you're still having doubts on shopping online because you're not sure if it fits, you'll be happy to know that they have a figure-loving fit guide, body measuring tool & dress fitting blog - to help you make informed decisions on finding the perfect dress that fits in all the right places. 

1. For Work
Dress: Eliza Striped Dress in Black
Dress: Eliza Striped Dress in Black
For me, I'm always into dresses that I can have fun layering with to spice up the entire look. For this piece, I chose to layer it with a white blouse underneath to match the white stripe trimmings of the dress and to let it pop a little more.

And, since I'm working in an environment that is not too strict with dressing, I can then dress down this outfit with a pair of while sneakers, or throw on a pair of loafers if I'm going for a dressier or edgier look. 



2. Errand day

Dress: Freeform Fleece V-neck Dress
On days when I'm not working, I like to throw on a simple, breathable dress before heading out to run my errands. Wearing a solid-coloured piece allows you to mix and match your accessories to bring out the accent of your dress. You can either play it up with a pair of statement earrings, or carry a bright-coloured bag to draw the attention back to your outfit. 

For me, since I'm such a sucker for statement earrings, I threw on this tassel pair and matched the colour of the earrings with a straw bag. And, of course, a pair of white sneakers that goes well with anything and everything! 




Over at the Le Contour website, you can also find the perfect, figure-loving fit with dresses that are parked in categories like Top Balancing Dresses, Bottom Balancing Dresses & Curves Creation Dresses. 



With these guides available on the website, you'll sure to embrace and balance the curves of your body. They also pride themselves in only selling designer inspired & high-end women dresses tailored with premium fabrics that are comfortable to wear and accentuates body curves nicely.

3. Date Night / Events

Dress: Sleeveless Flare Dress in Black
On days where I have work and am heading out for a date / events after that, I tend to pick a simple and timeless piece. My go-to for such occasions would usually be a fuss-free black dress - a must-have in every girls' wardrobe because it's something you can never go wrong with. 

For this outfit, I picked out monochrome accessories so that the coordinate can stay classy and fun at the same time. I love how this dress has a slightly body-hugging fit that helps accentuate your curves even more! 



For those of you who still might not be certain about your dress sizes, Le Contour also provides  dress fitting & size verification services upon request. You can always contact them via their FB messenger or customer service email – customer@le- contour.com!

While I was picking out these pieces and sending my sizes over, they also asked for my body measurements so that they would further advise me on the right sizes to get - which I'm glad that did beacause I actually picked size M for the Eliza Striped Dress in Black, I was advised that since the dress has a loose-fitting cut, it would have been too baggy for me and was recommended to choose size S instead

And, for all you girls out there who are always bogged down by the shipping charges, Le Contour actually provides FREE worldwide delivery on all orders!

Since it's almost Christmas, I bet most of us are currently in the midst of doing some last-minute Christmas shopping and wrapping our heads around what kind of Christmas gifts would be perfect for our friends and loved ones.

And, while we are still in this topic, why not do something a little different this Christmas and give your friends and family the gift of health this year? Plus, some of these bundled gift sets are well below the price range of S$100, which is perfect for those who are running tight on cash and are still looking gifting something substantial!

OSIM's Christmas Sets

This year, our dear OSIM has come up with a series of Christmas Sets for everyone! 
And, with 3 bundle gift sets to choose from, you can even kill 2 birds with 1 stone by getting 2 gifts of your choice for the price of 1! 

Some of these gift sets include:

1.  $68 picks - uSnooz Neck Pillow & uMask Eye Massager 


If you have friends or family who are avid travellers, this combination will be perfect for them. The uSnooz neck pillow is not only perfect for taking short naps on the plane, it can also help support and relax muscles in your neck - helping you experience deeper relaxation for a better nap.

The uMask Eye Massager, on the other hand, releases gentle vibrations when worn to relax eye muscles and increase circulation around the eyes - which really helps to relieve any form of fatigue or strain!

2. $98 picks – uSnooz Massage Wrap & uVision Eye Massager

If you're participating in any form of Christmas exchange this year and have no idea what to get for your closer colleagues, these gifts will be perfect for them!

With plush microfabric and a snug memory foam fit, the uSnooz Massage Wrap envelops you completely in a wave of calming feel-good sensation. The built-in massager has 6 unique vibration programs that effectively loosen tensed, knotted muscles to ease body aches and stiffness!

The uVision Eye Massager, on the other hand, features strategically positioned magnetic nodes to help improve circulation around your eyes. So say goodbye to tired eyes - and hello to refreshed beautiful ones!

3. $168 picks – uMist Dream Humidifier + uPure 2 Water Purifier


Like that they always say - you are what you drink. If you're looking for gifts for your parents or your loved ones, these two products from OSIM are bound to grant them with better sleep and healthier skin!

The uMist Dream Humidifier features ultrasonic technology that creates the ideal humidity level in the air to provide a hydrated, comfortable and healthier indoor environment for a good night's sleep.

The uPure 2 Water Purifier, on the other hand, has a unique 4-step purification process that can effectively remove almost all of the known bacteria* in tap water - so, you and your family can enjoy pure, clean water every day!



Other products also includes the OSIM uScalp and uGem 2 that I previously reviewed about here!

My top picks:

uMist Dream Humidifier + uGrace BF Body Composition Monitor

1. uMist Dream Humidifier


For someone who sleep with the aircon on, my skin tends to become really dry when I wake up in the mornings - even after slapping on tons of moisturiser before I sleep every night. I've heard many wonderful stories about how humidifiers can tackle dryness in skin, I've wanted to get one for the longest time - just that I haven't found the right product for me. 


What I love most about using the uMist Dream Humidifier is that it uses ultrasonic sound wave energy to break up water into extremely fine mist, the uMist Dream quickly adds moisture to the air to protect your skin, eyes, throat and nasal passages in dry, air-conditioned or heated rooms.



Plus, it even has a night light feature that gives you easy access to better air quality at all times while a LED indicator prompts you for a refill when water level!

2. uGrace BF Body Composition Monitor


When it comes to using weighing machines, most of us will shun the idea of even stepping onto one because it often shows us our darkest reality and prompts us that it's time to get that new year weight-losing resolution started. 

But, did you know that other than your weight, it's also important to know the other body metrics so as to maintain a healthy lifestyle and know exactly what is going on with your body? 


What I really love about the the OSIM uGrace BF Body Composition Monitor is that is also measures:
- Body weight
- Body fat
- Body water percentage
- Muscle mass
- Bone mass
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Daily calorie estimates (kCal)


Plus, it even comes with a large LCD display, energy-saving auto on-off feature, tempered glass and anti-slip base! Monitoring your body composition has never been easier and safer.

 From now till 31 Dec 2017, you can check out OSIM's collection of Christmas Gifts from 2 products at only $68! Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a thoughtful gift for your friends and family.
