The littlest one is back to her usual self finally and we’ve started to have our nightly before bedtime light-hearted chats on the bed once again. But as with most cuddly toddlers who turn into tweens and teenagers, she still greets any public display of warmth with revulsion and sullenness. Grown children do not want to be the object of all our affection or the main repository for all our dreams. I totally understand it and I’d gone through this phase once when I was a teenager. How I miss those days when my baby girl still loved her Telly Tubbies, High 5 and My Little Pony; those super UHU glue days when we would even hold hands when we were in the car 😥

Anyway, onwards and upwards!  On the bright side, my baby girl is growing up.  Today she told me that her teacher has chosen her and a few other classmates to take part in an inter-school drawing and painting competition. Cass is pretty good with her hands. She’s good in drawing, constructing things, putting together gadgets, self-assemble furniture, jigsaw puzzles and LEGO when I would freak out. She’s just like her dad.  She’s so happy that she gets to take part in this art competition and can’t wait to start on it.

Here are the photos of our late dinner or rather supper last Sunday on 8 September 2019.  The next day was a public holiday.

I can’t even think of the vaguest connection between these food pix and how Cass has morphed and remorphed, so I’m not even going to try.   So jumping right into it – after rounding the roads of KL and PJ and don’t have any idea on what to eat, hubs drove to Green View Restaurant, PJ to dig into crabs and jumbo prawns. As it was already 9 p.m., I told him to go easy on the dishes.  I don’t normally eat after 8 p.m.   So we only had 4 main dishes, juices and dessert.

Ice Plant served with sesame dressing.

Fresh prawn noodles

Sweet and sour crabs with fried mantou

Longan herbal jelly

There was also an individual bowl of crab meat sharks fins broth that hubs ordered for himself which I didn’t snap the photo.

Food was superb and by the time we finished our dinner, it was already close to 10:30 p.m.

Sensenique Natural “Betaine, Sulfate & Silicone Free” Hair & Body Wash

I wash my hair twice a day and sometimes even thrice a day as I exercise, cook and walk under the sun (thus sweat buckets!) almost every day. Thus, I have to use a mild shampoo that will not dry or irritate my scalp. I also have mild folliculitis on a few hair follicles on my scalp that will get inflamed if they are aggravated. If you have this condition, you’ll know how annoying this condition is and one of the nasty side effects is hair loss. So, using a shampoo that’s mild and contains as few harsh chemicals as possible is key to treating the condition.

Recently I tried Sensenique’s range of natural shampoo and body wash infused with essential oils, Argan oil, Olive oil, Jojoba seed oil, Macadamia seed oil and a host of other natural plant extracts and have fallen in love with them!

I have the complete range of hair shampoo and body shampoo from Sensenique and love each one of them!

Product variant (priced at RM39 for each variant):
Ginger Orange – Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash
Peppermint Lime – Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash

Every bottle of hair care product comes with a little note on what users can expect when they switch to betaine, sulfate and silicone free shampoo.

How Do I Feel After Using Betaine, Sulfate & Silicone Free Hair & Body Wash?

1. Hair and scalp
Hair feel a little dry after shampooing ( that’s because it does not contain silicone) but after applying Sensenique’s silicone-free conditioner, it feels smooth. Previous synthetic conditioners I’ve used always give my hair that slippery and creamy feel and makes my hair super smooth and ‘conditioned’. Even the bathroom floor has a slippery coat that is hard to wash off (major turn-off for me!) Turns out this is the work of silicones – which aren’t found in organic hair care as they cannot be classified as organic. Silicones coat the hair, giving it an artificial, slippery feel that can cause build up on the hair and scalp. Sensenique’s conditioner does not give me that ‘stubborn’ waxy feel on my hair and bathroom floor 😆

With Sensenique’s natural sulfate free shampoo, you won’t get a rich lather, like with most mainstream shampoos. This is because your bog-standard shampoo will contain sulfates like sodium laurel sulfate. Sulfates are used in shampoos as a foaming agent. Not only are sulfates irritants, but over time they can dehydrate the hair and scalp. Traditional sulfate-based shampoos can leave you with a more a “squeaky clean feel” and so you may experience less bubbles and a more “creamy” lather.

Natural and sulfate-free shampoos like Sensenique’s hair care range that are made with natural plant oils and herb extracts have the ability to promote new hair growth by naturally stimulating the hair follicles, maintaining the moisture and improving the overall condition of your hair and scalp,

2.  Skin (body and face)
The natural scent of peppermint, lime, ginger and orange is really invigorating and wakes up my senses early in the morning and at the end of a long and tiring day. I apply the body wash on my face and body. What I like about Sensenique’s body wash is that I do not get the dry and tight feeling that I usually get from most brands of body wash and face wash yet the gentle formula is efficient enough to wash off all my make-up with just one pump. The body wash comes off easily with rinsing and does not have the slimy feel you get from some brands of body wash. Super love it!

Sensenique Natural products are made with the following soothing, calming and conditioning herbal extracts for skin, hair and scalp (include anti-hair loss, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammation properties):

Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract*
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*
Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract
Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract
Equisetum Arvense Extract (Horsetail)
Tussilago Farfara (Coltsfoot) Leaf Extract
Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract
Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract (Lemon Balm)
Centella Asiatica Extract* (Centella)
Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract* (Japanese Knotweed)
Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract* (Baikal Skullcap)

Why I Choose Sensenique’s Shampoo and Bodywash?
As a health freak mom, I get a peace of mind when my girls use Sensenique’s premium blend of safe, toxin-free, gentle yet effective glucose, amino acid & fatty acid based surfactants that make them perfect for everyday use. They are scented with pure essential oils and consistent usage leaves us with healthier skin, hair and scalp.

Their formula does not contain any sulfate or betaine surfactants such as Cocamidopropyl Betaine , Coco Betaine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate(SLES), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(SLS) and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS). Thus, the formula is suitable for all hair types including color treated hair and all skin types, especially sensitive, dry and problematic skin like eczema.

Lastly, the products are priced reasonably at RM39 a bottle. No doubt it is costlier than bog-standard brands of shampoo and body wash. However, if I were to compare Sensenique with other premium brands of shampoo and body wash with similar premium formula, Sensenique is priced at a fraction of the price of its competitors.
