Read it all (but later)

I hate bookmarking pages. I will sound spoiled if I say this but it seems to be a long process to save a tab or more. And worse, bookmark features in Google Chrome or Safari have unflattering layout that I cannot follow-through.
Often, when I'm roaming around the internet, I would have ten tabs open for ten multifarious articles (often beauty posts ;) ). Most of the time, I would never get to read any of it because I am procrastinating elsewhere or end up forgetting about it. If your situation is akin to mine, keep on reading.
This is when I recently discover the free application called "Pocket" on iTunes. Pocket allows you to create an account (which take 20 seconds) and it automatically integrates itself into your browsers, your safari app in your iPhone, or other medium you use to surf the net. If you see an article you like but have no time to read it now, you can just pocket it to read it later.
So for the slackers out there, this is my lifeboat for productive reading.


[Review] Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

The tagline reads "for sublime softness" and impressively, it delivers.

I purchased the B&B Hairdresser's invisible Oil through Sephora ($38) early this year and have used it for about 7 months now. My hair's thick, coarse, and dried-up do to chemical doings so it was prudent that I find an efficient oil-based hair product. After using Morocconoil and intending to experiment more with the eclectic range of hair oil products, I took the risk with this one.
There are two ways to use this: two pumps into your just-showered damp hair, or polish your hair during the day to maintain frizz and shine.
I usually apply it right after the shower. I have this odd belief that the heat can easily absorb the oil which maximizes the efficiency of this product; I also like the smell of it on damp hair. I find the smell to be incredibly subtle. It is there, but it creeps up on you. The mixture of six different kinds of oil (including coconut, almond, and grape oil) has produced a salty beach-like fragrance that I relish in.
Since I live in a tropical, often arid, weather here in Jakarta, this product's UV filters and heat-protection feature come in handy. I don't usually care for this feature but it is definitely essential for heat-styling readers out there.
The substance of this product is extremely light, sometimes too light, that it disappears within the dense layers of my hair. However, the result has been life-changing.
Though the price may be a bit exorbitant, I can assure you this 100ml bottle of pure luxurious oils can last for a really long time if used sparingly. It has been 7 months and I have only used up half of the bottle. It is a perfect hair oil product to use for the blazing summer days.
