It is because of these things that I found myself one time inside a small place in Market! Market! called Sensou (I don't know if I got the name right). There I purchased three products which now replaced my three basic bath companions - shampoo, conditioner, and face soap.
Ask if I like these products? Gah, I adore them! The Human Nature shampoo and conditioner duo are one of the best tandem I have so far for hair care. The smell is very interesting that it reminds me of a fresh orange everytime I feed my hair with the shampoo. One thing that is remarkable is that the shampoo can even be used as a body wash! It only means one thing, it is gentle enough to nourish your skin as well. For me, this is a good sign for a product. The product is also crystal clear unlike the very commercialized shampoos.
The conditioner is my hair's rejuvinator. It is like water to my body whereby it gives my hair a glowing and healthy feel without the bitter effect of chemicals. I am literally in my wash and wear hair now - with a much better result!
I trust their claim. :)
Another great find for me was the Ilog Maria facial soap. This soap, wrapped in just a clear plastic with a simplest name on it, speaks for itself. It does not need any cute or flowery words just to make you buy it. It does not even have a bombastic or too good to be true tag lines that marketings is best known for. Ilog Maria does not dwell its effort on making cute packaging and all - that I am sure of. This soap is transparent that made it more interesting. The reason? They put so much honey and propolis enough for this high-grade soap to claim the word "transparent". I am a science boo boo that I would not know why honey would be best for my face, but through the use of this soap, I know it is an instrumental ingredient in attaining my pimple-free and glowing skin. The smell is oh so pleasing to the nose as well. I tell you, you got to try it! I still have one test for Ilog Maria though to make it my most preferred soap for my face - that is when I have my PMS attack. We'll see. :)
