L'Oréal Excellence Fashion 7.1 Beige Light Brown Review + New L'Oréal Hair Offerings

Happy New Year! This more or less is my first review for the year. Yaaaaaay! So I received a box of L'Oréal Excellence Ultra Lights last year. I was curious to try it, but I was a bit unsure as I had bleached hair. I asked around as to whether this would be okay for my bleached hair, but was unfortunately told that my hair might become orange if I used this. Excellence Lights is really good for those with virgin hair that really need a very noticeable lift and lightening. But for those with rebonded hair, and for those with bleached hair, it is not recommended. Bleached hair already has been lifted (as in some of the color pigments that make it dark have been lifted off). Lifting even further might get to orange because brunettes, by nature, have orange underlying pigments in their hair. 

That's why I'm doing an ash review today, but I'm reviewing their other dye that can be used on bleached hair. This is their Excellence Fashion hair dye in 7.1 Beige Light Brown. This is the usual Excellence, and has a different formulation. Ultra Lights has a special formulation to really amp up the lightening. This is generally good at keeping hair nourished and damage free, and if it can be trusted to cover grey hair well, then it's pigmented. I have used this before and the last time around, I was satisfied with the results.

Watsons Naturals Launch (October 17, 2017)

I. AM. SO. SORRY!!! I know, I know, this is an event two months ago! The past two months happen to be the busiest months in my life due to finishing up the renovations of my work room. Majorly, we changed floors, so we had to evacuate everything in the room. Getting things out and putting them in decent temporary areas already takes a village to do. Putting them back takes yet another village! So I apologize to the brand, and to all you lovely readers in general, for this one (and a slew of other reviews) coming out so late.

But whelp. Better late than never! So today I'd like to share what transpired from Watsons Naturals' launch.

I'm sure you guys are just as dependent as I am on Watsons, for everything from cotton to hand soap to basically everything about personal care. They have plenty of existing product lines that cater to bringing the experience of using ingredients sourced from around the world to the Filipino consumer. Hence the conditioners, lotions, and body washes that feature coconut, tsubaki (for hair), shea butter, lavender, and I'm sure you can name even more variants than I ever could. This time, using the same concern for Filipinos to experience high quality organic ingredients from around the world, they worked on creating a line that was free from parabens, mineral oil, colorants, isothiazolinone, silicone, sodium laureth sulfate, and other potentially undesirable ingredients for the skin,
