And here are my product recommendations to look at:

Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream: Probably, you cannot here it any longer, but I love this jar of eye cream! It is a lot of product, and it may seem unhygienic because it is not in the tube, but that formulation is so great: rich and creamy, and yet I can apply it even on top of my lids and it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy! Plus that purple packaging! *_* You can get it  >>here<<.

SanDaWha Camellia Flower Hydrating Mist: Are you looking for a mist with few ingredients and a lovely scent of Camellia japonica Flower Extract? Then you should take a look at this mist from SanDaWha! I don’t use mists often, but I love this one! It is available >>here<<.

Tonymoly Perfect Lips Shocking Lip: A lip tint with a great color pigmentation and long-lasting stain. One of my favourite every day tints! Get it >>here<<.

Swanicoco Vita Triple Cover Swan CC Pact: The favourite cushion of mine I tried this year. It gives a beautiful finish and a nice glow! Go >>here<< to grab it!

Review: SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

21. September 2017


I love to try out hair care from other countries. Sometimes you find true gems, which you would never have found in the range of your regular drugstore haul. When I heard that the Korean brand SanDaWha also has a shampoo and conditioner containing Camellia Flower I was sure that I needed to try it. Thankfully, I was provided a set of the SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner from W2Beauty.

SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

SanDaWha is a natural cosmetics brand from Korea. Its products are free from mineral oils, free from alcohol, free from animal based ingredients, synthetic perfume and fragrance free, and free from artificial pigments and artificial preservatives. From the high quality plant-based ingredients Camellia flower is their key ingredient. Camellia japonica is a member of the tea family and grows naturally in Korea and Japan, where it is also known by the name “Dongbaek” (Korean) or “Tsubaki” (Japanese). This flower is also the ingredient of the Shiseido Tsubaki hair care. The oil from the Camellia flower is widely used in asian cosmetics and has moisturizing properties.

SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

My hair is frizzy and has natural waves and curls. I don’t have thick hair though, but rather fine one. My hair is also quite long (at the moment down to my waist) and therefore the ends are pretty damaged (time to visit the hair saloon…). When I look for hair care I usually look for straightening and hydrating properties and damage repair. My scalp is dry to normal depending on the season. These products from SanDaWha are directed towards sensitive & dry to normal scalp.

SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

The SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner come in large pump bottles containing 400 g each. I love to have pump bottles for hair care since it makes it much easier to control how much product you need. The white colored bottles are decorated with a single red Camellia flower on the front. I love the design! Below the flower you will find a short text which describes the product.The pump of the bottles has to be unlocked upon the first use. This prevents the product to leak out during the shipping. Also, if you want to take the shampoo somewhere else, you could lock it again.

SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

The ingredients of the SanDaWha Camellia Clear Moisturizing Shampoo are listed below. The shampoo contains almost 50% Camellia Japonica Flower Extract. Apart from that you will also find a bunch of other plant-based ingredients, like rosemary, lavender, rosewood, chamomile, licorice etc. The shampoo is supposed to cleanse your hair from impurities and yet act moisturizing on the hair. Also, the herbs should have a calming effect on the scalp. The conditioner also contains a bunch of plant-based ingredients. In contrast to the shampoo it contains 5 different oils to deeply moisturize and nourish the hair. The ingredients list states  for example shea butter, olive oil, and of course tsubaki oil...but also essential oils like mint, lavender, rosewood, etc.

SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

The shampoo has a clear, slightly yellowish formulation with an herbal scent, which was actually not what I expected, but I loved the shampoo. It made the hair feel so clean and the scalp especially. The hair was fluffy and lightweight after washing the hair with the SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo. In terms of moisture I still needed to use the conditioner, because the moisturizing effect of the shampoo was not enough. The conditioner does a perfect job in that point. It has a creamy consistency and really makes the hair feel soft and hydrated. I tested these two products very thoroughly and the shampoo is already empty and the conditioner needs only some more days. I can definitely say that this combination doesn’t make your hair ultra sleek like the Tsubaki shampoo and conditioner from Shiseido. It makes them fluffy and light and clean...nevertheless, the conditioner really is a glow-booster for my hair. I see the difference in how the hair shines whether I use the conditioner together with the shampoo or I use the shampoo alone.

SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner

My final verdict is that I enjoyed the SanDaWha Camellia Shampoo and Conditioner. I already knew that Camellia really does the trick for my hair, but now I’ve been confirmed again. I love how the brand contains natural and eco certificated ingredients and so many plants and herbs, too. It is, in my eyes, a good alternative to the Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo and worth a try, although it is also similarly expensive. At W2Beauty the set of shampoo and conditioner retails for 55 US$ (currently there is a SanDaWha brand sale of 40% and the set retails for only 33US$!).
