Review: Bubble Hair coloring in 07 Mocha Pink by Etude House

ImageA year wiser, a shade lighter :)) Ive always wanted a light brown ashy kind of hair but im always too scared or busy or broke..haha! So I’ve been loving Bubble Hair color from EH..its so affordable and fool proof 🙂 This is my second time to use this..the first was around 4 months ago 🙂

Since Im still so disoriented to blog, Ill just photobomb you :))

The box contains the Fluid #2 in a pump bottle, fluid#1 in a plastic sachet, hair conditioner in the purple sachet and some protective plastic to avoid stains.

The only English insructions. the additional info packet inside does not have any english details.

my hair before the treatment, straight from the bun :))


I cant remember if the first one i used was amber yellow like this or a bit more purple..I had to recheck my box to make sure I got the right shade.

The plastic things came with the pack and I love how it helped with avoiding stains everywhere. I later on wrapped my bubbled hair with the cape thing. Of course, after a few minutes, the color dripped to my shirt. I dont know why i forgot to take my shirt off or wear a darker one..however, no stains were left on my shirt after laundry..ahmazin!


Got a few red marks from the dye that touched my skin. It was a teeny bit itchy but the redness and itching was gone as soon as my hair was dry 🙂


My hair when dry. I feel like during the following days, my hair color got even lighter and I really like it 🙂


  • Super easy to use
  • affordable and easily available
  • no dandruff and uncomfortable itching
  • no stains on my forehead, ears, nape and shirt
  • pretty color that doesnt look so fake
  • the treatment conditioner that comes with, works like magic!


  • Hoping theyd come up with more colors however, comparing my hair to friend who used mocha pink, her color looks much lighter than mine. and with my other friends who used Wine red, one got black with red highlights during sunlight and the other got a really nice chestnut color..odd so dont expect your hair to turn out exactly how the color on the box looks :)) Anywho, every one looks pretty and no hair damage from using this baby 🙂

PS. Finally had time to blog 🙂

Hey there 🙂

Chilling here at the library with my new earbuds..really wasn’t particular but I just liked the fact that they’re so effective at keeping me awake with music but blocking out the unnecessary noises people make at the library. I like the feeling that it’s just me and my desk despite the lots of people here :))


Its an A4tech MK-650 for 350php only..cheapskates galore! 😉

Today’s make up is subtle everything just cause I have dissection later and I’ve been really tired of Biochem..oh wells..here are what’s on my face 🙂

  • Olay Natural White Day Cream
  • Maybelline Clear Smooth Aqua Liquid Foundation
  • Maybelline Clear Smooth All in one Foundation (lightly dusted on)
  • Bloom Sheer Coulour Cream as blush and Lip base
  • Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Strawberry Choux

    Not a Messy Bun

    09/30/2012 § Leave a comment

    This is how I put up my hair on a bun with a metal ring thingy.


    It’s definitely not the perfect bun cause I hair combed only and strands are sticking out but this is as well put together as I can get and in my opinion, not a messy bun. Haha!

    What’s on my face

  • Olay Natural White Day Cream
  • Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever stick (makes BB cream less oily)
  • EH All Day Strong BB Cream
  • Nature Republic Shine Blossom Rose Blush
  • EH Dr. Oil mist
  • EH Drawing Eyebrows
  • Prestige Perfectly Clear Mascara (used on brows)
  • EH Secret Beam Pact
  • Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb
  • Invested on my bases for a clear blank canvas and went simple and natural on the colors for a fuss free shopping day with baby Mio 🙂 no outfit shot as I am quite fat (for my size and preference, no need to get angry) and I’m really determined to lose the tummy because my sister is already a size smaller than me..haha! Love you Jas! 😉


    What’s in my retouch purse:

  • Nature Republic Shine Blossom Rose Blush
  • Nature Republic Petit Pact
  • Burts Bees lip shimmer
  • Three items baby! I’m sooooow officially low maintenance today! 😉

    Mom in Makati Face

    08/27/2012 § Leave a comment

    Day in Makati without Mio means walking on however high heels I have on, whatever uncomfortable but pretty clothes I’m wearing and my hair ever so messy and be mega fuss free all day and night..HOWEVER, a day in Makati with Mio means that I’d wanna cut down on the running after Mio and all the fuss that comes with mommy duties. So here’s what iwore on a hot day..sheer top and shorts.


    I’ve been trying out the high top bun to keep my hair away from my face on mommy duties.


    So clean and sleek huh? It’s actually a little messy..but a bun never goes out of date with me ever since the ballerina days 🙂 See how I’ve almost no make up on?? Haha! Haggard mucho?


    Here’s the little runner! 🙂

    ❤ Jessica

    Ps. Now off to get ready for another day in Manila-Makati with Mio..can't believe I've classes again tomorrow!! :/

    Pantene Pro V Leave on Treatments

    Review: Pantene Pro V Night Miracle Essence, All Day Hair Fall Protect Essence and Natural Shine Booster Essence


    Since school started, I’ve been extra conscious with my hair cause my hair fall has been terrible maybe due to the stress and pony tailing. I swear, if I could live with one hair style like if I were a Sim, I’d do the ponytail..haha! 🙂 Anywho, I don’t want my hair to get any worse so I asked my Tita Nanay how she dealt with hair fall (she experienced a real bad case due to having too much hair color and treatment stuff) and she said only. Pantene worked, out of all the stuff she’s tried so yeah I’ve slightly converted to Pantene however on weekends I use some anti dandruff stuff.

    AnyAnywho, she told me that the leave ons were also quite awesome so of course who wouldn’t wanna try? 🙂 I always wanted to use leave ons for my frizzy hair during the Pre-Hair Rebonding generation..aka before high school :)) even before puberty, I like doing stuff with my hair only I’ve been blessed with thick black oily hair which means leave ons are a No No, while anti dandruff ones were my staple. Amidst the hesitations due to that history, I actually came to love these three bottles 😉

    Total Damage Care Night Miracle Essence

    I first got to try this one cause I’ve been washing my hair twice everyday..with conditioners in the AM and Shampoo at night. That means I have tangled up hair in the evenings but it’s ok cause I just stay indoors anyway. However, tangled hair means more hair fall because they’re all pulled in random directions. Please don’t get angry that I wash my hair so much and then complain of hair fall..hehe! I cannot not wash at night, my hair feels dirty and in the morning I feel like I’m not awake without washing my hair..lol That’s why I slathered on two pumps of this baby on my uncombed towel dried hair with my hands. Imagine my surprise when I combed my hair tame with my hands and the help of this product. I tell you, AWESOME DETANGLER! I however cannot say anything about the repair part cause I don’t think my hair was damaged to show some results.

    Hair Fall Control All Day Hair Fall Protect Essence


    Because of how much I loved the night treatment I got (my mom to) buy myself this bottle for daytime protection because lunch time in school means a long sunny walk to the “better” cafeterias..lol 🙂 This did not disappoint as well. Aside from the absence of greasiness and weighing down which I’ve experienced in my younger stubborn days of still using some leave ons; people really started to notice a change with my hair during the first week I used this every morning.

    The fact is that three weeks ago, about the time I started to use the night essence, I dyed my hair chocolate brown or in Etude House language, Mocha Pink. The result was noticeable to me and the ones here at home but not to the ones I see only on weekends However, as more days passed, the color seems to lighten a bit more making my hair stand out little by little and I’m not sure if it was because that’s how Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring works OR if the daytime protection essence from Pantene has been doing the wonders. I feel it’s a little of both. I also did not put my hair up on a pony after lunch during the weeks I’ve been using this so, yes “No more tali time” :))

    Nature Care Fullness & Life Natural Shine Booster Essence


    This is the latest I’ve been using, left the hair fall essence bottle with my mom to try this one 🙂 Just cause Tita Nanay bought it and I can’t say no to nature..lol! I liked this cause I felt it gives better control on my hair so it looks more straight. I’m not sure however if this is supposed to protect my hair from hair fall like the other one. Any who, I still love this and got compliments from the girlashes in school so I’m sticking with this one for now. I do love how it doesn’t weigh my hair down or feel greasy even with the sun and stress and how much I touch my hair. I’m sorry I know it’s such a lousy habit I do and it’s bad for my hair line BUT 🙂

    All three are awesome so if you’re looking for some versatile leave on that works, you better get these bottles 🙂


  • that it doesn’t weigh my thick hair down
  • that it doesnt feel greasy
  • that my forehead skin and cheeks did not break out which usually happens when I try new hair products
  • that it detangles so well and keeps my hair very tame
  • that it’s not making my hair color look bad and in fact its making my hair notably look better
  • HATES:

  • that it’s a little pricey for a student like me. And a bottle would prolly last only a month with two pumps everyday
  • Overall, I’m so keeping this in my everyday and night routine 😉

    Library Loner Face

    07/11/2012 § 4 Comments

    Did you stay up late last night studying for an exam? I did 😦

    Welcome to Dr. R. A. Medical Library :))

    Let me just blabber while I rest my mind from anatomy reviewers

    Check out my view 😉


    Don’t you love how clean it looks like? Haha! Just an awesome place to study..away from the traffic and pollution 🙂

    Moving on..check out todays make up 🙂


    *made a point to wear so much pink on my lips just cause yesterday my Nude Peach Fuss was apparently “pale” duh? Haha! Boys talaga..it’s called baby pink make up! 🙂

    Watch from Link 🙂 they have the most interesting designs of plastic watches at great prices (very collectable). I’m planning to switch to a porcelain white and gold watch (cause i know itll look awesone on my white uniform..haha! Vanity!) but I can’t seem to save enough money for it :))

    Today’s routine:

  • Olay moisturizer
  • Hawaiian Tropics SunscreenStick Lip Balm
  • Goodbye Pore Ever Stick
  • Nivea immediate sun protect for face
  • Maybelline ClearSmooth Aqua foundation
  • Maybelline Clear Smooth all in one foundation
  • Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine free blush in Fresh Coral
  • EH Proof 10 Auto Pencil in brown
  • EH Drawing Eyebrows in #3 Brown
  • Snoe Handy Lip Color in Strawberry
  • Maybelline Magnum Super Film Mascara
  • Today’s routine is intended for a sunny day and a lot of walking but close to none retouching 😉

    Also, I officially have “Brown Hair” as of 2 Tuesdays ago thanks to Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring in Mocha pink 🙂 see?


    I love how it looks a lot less yellow in normal light and almost natural but kept my face looking softer and younger because of the lighter shade than my forever brown-black which was my natural jet black hair only damaged by the sun so it tends to have a tinge of brown in sunlight..haha! :)) it could be a dupe for Ash brown blonde (the shade ive always wanted cause of Ms. Curtis) which is like an off brown-grey hair, no yellow undertones but could only be achieved by bleaching and a lot of recoloring. So yeah I’m mega happy 🙂

    I’m not sure what else I should blabber about so I’m gonna sign off now and get back to the books 🙂 wish me luck on my exams today? 😉

    ❤ Jessica



    Travel Bag Time

    04/06/2012 § Leave a comment

    What’s in my travel essentials bag?

    I’ve always been jealous of people showing whats in their bags but it just can’t be possible for me cause I change bags and content almost every time I change destinations. However, as summer is at its best, there’s one bag that’s been very efficient for me. I know it’s a tad bit late but you might get some tips for the rest of your summer trips 🙂


    This bag is really a bag, as big as a 13inch laptop bag, and could keep everything from make up to underwear. Ergo, I think every single girl in the world should have one of these from Rustan’s Essenses 🙂


    This life saving organizer opens up to a zipped side, 6 pockets and two removable pouches (one clear plastic, the other a plastic net/mesh thing) I used the closed one for make up, the mesh one for shower things and the pockets for bigger bottles.


    So here are what I have inside

    Bath and Body Works body spray in Sensual Amber
    Wonder Pore Freshner in an atomizer
    Snoe Here Comes The Sunblock
    Olay Natural White Exfoliating body wash (so I don’t need to bring my loofah which I use everyday and still feel squeaky clean)
    Off Insect Repellant lotion in floral scent


    Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balm Sunblock Stick SPF 45
    Palladio Natural Rice Powder
    Ponds pinkish white day cream
    Dear Darling tint from Etude House
    Snoe Four Seasons of Blush
    Snoe S Skin BB cream
    Ponds Pearl Cream
    Ginseng and Honey Mask Pack
    Moistfull Aloe Lotion in a sample bottle

    Vaseline healthy white lotion
    Close Up toothpaste
    Colgate travel toothbrush
    Safeguard white soap
    Loreal Shampoo and Conditioner in sachets

    I shall not explain the ones I’ve placed inside the zipper side cause they’re just personal stuff however ill hint at the capacity by telling you that I was able to fit my little camera, a pocket book, a Coach purse, a comb, a brush, a number of sanitary pads and liners and a few more stuff in it 🙂

    I love how it was able to fit everything and how I can place the bag on the dresser, bring a pouch to the bathroom and grab everything when I’m going out so easily 🙂

    ❤ Jessica

    PS I also was able to slip into the pouch a couple of lippies as I was about to leave! 🙂
