Review: Milea Tea Tree Shampoo

It’s been ages since my last post. Oh well! What can I do? We lost our internet connection on the 11th of January and the “good” people of Globe took two weeks to fix it. So much time and earning potential wasted. Moving on, this post has been in my draft for weeks but didn’t get the chance to publish it before we lost our internet so it’s just right that I publish this now after weeks of being MIA.

If you have read my previous posts, you will know that I suffered from dandruff since early last year until until 3rd quarter of 2014. I tried lots of homemade remedies and shampoos, including natural ones and thankfully, I have found my cure a couple or so months ago - washing my hair with Lactacyd Baby Wash (blue) daily for a couple of weeks. However, daily use of Lactacyd can be drying to the hair so I decided to look for alternative. I found Human Heart Nature Strengthening shampoo and got good results at first but long time use on daily basis made my hair itchy again so I went back on my quest for the right shampoo. When I purchased (from eBay) my husbands Milea Aloe Vera Shampoo (for hair fall), I decided to get this Milea Tea Tree Shampoo for myself as it claims to deal with dandruff.


Now, I am thankful that I got this. read on to find out why...

Product Description

For Dandruff Control

Non-SLS/SLES/PEG/Paraben formulated, mild enough to use everyday

Review

Packaging and Appeal. The shampoo comes in a tall and slim shaped transparent bottle. The shampoo itself is green and is a bit watery compared to other shampoos. I think it has the same consistency as the Human Heart Nature Strengthening shampoo.

Like other organic shampoos, this doesn’t lather well. You just have to get used to it especially if you are making the switch from drugstore/commercial shampoos to organic hair care products.

2014 Favorites

The year 2014 has ended and I am publishing this post just now because I didn't have time to do so last year. I was so busy doing many other things including playing Kings Road on Facebook. LOL!

Anyway... Last year, I was introduced to lots of products and there are those that remain a favorite. But the products I included in this list are not all new to me. I have been using some for years, others I have rediscovered. Here they are in no particular order:

Epiduo Gel. This saved my life… along with oral antibiotics my derma prescribed to me. My pimples started to heal after a few uses and long term use made them all disappear. I so love this product and I cannot imagine what my life (or my face) would be like without this. One small tube costs around Php 1200, quite expensive for its size but the result is so worth it. After all, the tube lasted me for around half a year so it’s really a great investment.
 Lactacyd Baby Bath. This is another life-saver. I have been using this on and off for years and I have recently found it effective in treating my dandruff. Daily use for two weeks is all it takes for the dandruff to disappear completely.

Acne Bar (from my Dermatologist). The soap contains salicylic acid and tea tree oil - two ingredients said to be effective in treating acne. Currently, I only use this every night (morning and night before) as I no longer have pimples. This soap is a bit drying so using moisturizer is recommended.

Revlon Balm Stain. This lipstick is light on the lipstick and has that minty flavor I love. It is easy to apply thus my go-to lipstick especially when I am feeling lazy or running late. I have three shades only - Romantique, Rendezvous and Honey.

Looking Back and Moving Forward

2014 was a rollercoaster year for me. The down: my mother was hospitalized, undergone surgery and we learned that her cancer has progressed to Stage 3. The up: I got married to a responsible, loving and funny man. When I look back to what transpired last year, I couldn’t help but thank the Lord for all the blessings he showered upon me particularly during the days when I felt so down and helpless. He never abandoned me and instead sent his angels in the form of family, relatives and friends to help me get through the difficult situation I was in.

With my father and only brother dead (there’s just me and my mother), it can be difficult for me to face the world with a cancer-stricken mother but I managed to survive the turbulence with the Lord’s guidance and support from the people around me. Truly, I am thankful for what I have.

With regards to my blogging, oh well, 2014 was kind of disappointing as I failed to reach the quota I set for myself. I should have posted at least eight posts per month (at least 96 for the whole year) but I only reached 79. I tried my best but I am not always the most dedicated and focused person thus the failure. Besides, I have lots of shoes to fill; daughter, wife, employee (with part time work), niece, friend and many others so my failure in blogging is partly due to the people that really matters. :D

Despite that failure, I won’t be changing my blogging goals this year. My eight post per month quota is still on. I hope I can do better this year though I know this year will be busier than the last since my husband and I have a couple of BIG plans for our family: baby and new house. We all know that these two are something to be taken seriously and the former will surely take a lot of my time so that will definitely affect my blogging. But then, as what my husband always tells me, “it will be worth it”. It would be understandable if I will not reach my quota AGAIN this year. LOL! At least, I’ll be adding a new topic in this blog - baby stuff!

To my readers, thank you for taking the time to read my posts and I wish that the Lord grants the desires of the hearts of everyone of us. Happy New Year!
