Cozycot Holy Grail Party

Woke up bright and early this morning to attend Cozycot Holy Grail Party at Singapore Expo with my mum. Spent around 2 hours walking the booths, but I didn't see much that caught my eye. There was some good discounts on:
selected ZA products (50% off) with the 2-way cake selling for $10
selected Majolica Marjoca products at 30% off (I grabbed a nail polish at $5)
Esperique Precious foundation going for $49.
10% off Bod sincare line

I bought a cleansing milk and eye gel from Bod, a natrual skincare range which had 10% off (actually this range is newly launched, and can be found at Watson's, also with 10% off I believe). I also tried the scalp analysis at Phyto, Keratase and did a UV skin check at DermaR skincare. For some reason I have more brown spots and UV spots compared to my mum who is almost 30 years older than me!!! Could this be due to the fact that she's more judicious with carrying an umbrella and I prefer to wear sunglasses (I read somewhere that it's not good to wear sunglasses cos they reflect the rays onto your skin but I'm not sure how accurate that is).

Was disappointed with the door gift, I got a stack of vouchers for some spa treatment, a Pantene 3 minute hair treatment, 1 Bliss yoghurt drink, and Bioessence sample for face lifting cream. To think I was one of the early birds queueing at 11am.

Kao Prettia Hair Dye- Bleach

Kao Prettia hair dye, aka Liese Hair Dye in Singapore, is a range of hair dye in foam format, so not only is it easy to apply, doesn't drip, it is extremely easy to wash off. I don't know how many times I swore off at home dye jobs cos it was just too difficult to wash off.

I used No. 18 Bleach which isn't available in Singapore yet, as there is a wider range in Japan.

Now my hair is black black black, as I haven't coloured it in years. So since I wanted to get a brighter colour, I left it on for 1 hr (the box showed that for the lightest result I would need to leave it in for 40 mins). At the 30min mark, I looked in the mirror and my hair was still black, so I proceeded to leave it in for longer.

The results:

Verdict: I'm happy with the light brown shade, and it looks pretty even, although this could be attributed to the fact that my hair hadn't been dyed before. Oh there was loads of hair dye left, so this is economical for longer haired gals.

Price: $19.90 in Singapore, available at Watson's/Guardian/Supermarkets etc. I got mine in Japan for ard 700yen
