Angel Lip Glaze

The color is an opaque gold, it's very creamy & moisturizing. Love the sheen, but as you guys can see, there's hardly any color showed up on my lips hehe, it's still very pretty tho : )


Melaleuca Wellness

First time I heard "Melaleuca" I was like "hmm..that sounds familiar", and it turns out Melaleuca is a botanical name of Tea Tree!

Last month, me & my bf met his mom's friends whose son had a severe asthma. When we asked about his condition, she said "Oh no, we never have to deal with his asthma anymore" We were really surprised because we've always heard about that poor kid going in & out hospital for treatments. One time I even heard he was 'this' close to losing his life *shrug* His asthma was that bad.

The mom told us her story on how she finally figured every thing's out. She is a clean freak. She cleans her house every single day, sometimes twice a day, using the commercial products like Tide, Pine sol etc and it turns out her son is allergic to them, thanx to the harsh toxic ingredients they put in commercial products. Throughout those years she had no clue what caused his son's illness and searched for every explanation out there but never imagine it was her cleaning products.

She was introduced by one of her friend to try Melaleuca products, first thing of course she said "Nah, we've tried everything. Nothing works, I think I'll pass" but her friends insisted and gave her a free sample of Melaleuca detergent. Lo & behold, after she started using it, her son's condition has gotten better. She converted right away and now his son NEVER have the asthma. It just went away. Weird huh?

So we got very intrigued by it and when check out the price, hey, it costs just as much as commercial products we buy on store! Being a environmental & health conscious, I think it's a good choice to optimize the usage of natural products in our daily life. We decided to join the membership, don't freak out, it's not like the scary money grabber scheme out there, Melaleuca's policy is very reasonable, we only paid $1 *that's right, one dollar* membership fee (we signed up during their 'special month' and they have it often), and the benefits we got such as 30-40% ongoing discounts for every products they have in store. The downfall maybe just the fact that we HAVE to buy something every month, but knowing that
Melaleuca has tons of products, from skin care, bath & body, vitamins, household cleaning products, it means there wouldn't be too hard to find something to stock up. hey, you're buying groceries every month anyway, right?

So these what we decided to start the healthier lifestyle
: )

Now I don't wanna make pre-judgement on these stuffs although I've heard so many great things about them. My bf's older sister is a natural product lover and when we informed her about Melaleuca she said "Oh yeah, that's the stuffs I've been using for my house!" T_T and she never told us ! hahaha

Another great things about Melaleuca is it's worldly available, meaning they have distribution offices all over the world, in Asia I know they have distributors in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, and they also have ones in Australia & NZ.

So no crazy shipping issues LOL

I'll be using these stuffs and let you guys know what I think. I'm excited coz everything smells so good hehehe

The site is in English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean (o.O)

Hello. I find your blog very interesting. It is so hard to find a good wellness company. Melaleuca is one of them. It provides different nutritional, cosmetic and skin care products. At the present time, Melaleuca sells its products in many countries all over the world. I learned about the company on this great site www.pissedconsumer.com. I read the customers’ feedback and it turned out to be a great company featuring minor drawbacks. Personally, I can say that I am completely satisfied with Melaleuca.
