Last Week Hauls: Luscious Lather

Been eyeing for long time the Luscious Lather products. Not to mention that Diane, the owner is very active promoting them through Twitter and Facebook. I purchased at her Etsy Store.
When she launched Trio Samplers for Oily Skin, I said to myself that I've gotta try this.

Before there was the Trio, I sent a message to Diane, asking about which products suitable for my skin condition (oily, has blemish, and large pores). We discussed in several messages, and I noted the products she suggested. The products included in the set were in Diane's suggestion:

Ultra Detox Deep Pore Facial Cleanser
AHA Facial Toner
Soothing Light Lotion

Each is one 1 oz. bottle
(Complete info:

Other than the trio, I also bought:
- Ultra Gentle Milk Facial Cleanser with Multi-Fruit Acids and Organic Green Tea, 90 Percent Organic
- Detox Facial Mask with Moroccan Clay, MSM, Vitamin C and Walnut Shell Powder - Good for All Skins, all Natural, Vegan (2 oz. cobalt blue jar with a black lid)
- Alpha Hydroxy Acid Facial Creme - 84 Percent Organic, Vegan (1.5 oz. cobalt blue jar with jet black lid)

Each product has so many beneficial ingredients. For example, the facial mask contains Bentonite Clay is a highly absorbent clay that pulls excess oils and toxins from the skin.Moroccan Lava Clay (Rhassoul Clay) certainly has the ability to smooth and improve dry skin.

The smallest jar is body scrub free sample I received.

The package is sealed. This is a unique thing I see of the packaging. Some of handmade skin care, sometimes there's no seal like this. So when you open the cap, you can see te product straight away.

Again: Typhoid Fever!

I spent the long weekend (Feb 26-28) at home.... Sick.

When I had this bad headache and migraine for two days, I should have known that it was the symptom of typhoid fever.
On Feb 25 afternoon, the headache started. And on Feb 26, the fever started and I also had mild diarrhea.... On Feb 27, got worse. I felt the need to shut off all of my communication gadgets (cell and blackberry, so annoying), text and emails kept coming, grrrr.......

I also had swollen eye lid. Left lid on Friday morning (just after woke up), and right lid on Saturday.
I didn't think about typhoid
I still went to office on March 1 to submit my monthly expense report.

On March 2, I decided not coming to office. I stayed at home and made appointment to see my ENT doctor. I concerned about the flu and allergy. I brought blood test I took in early February.
Doctor saw that indication of Typhoid was still there. Some of indicators were positive. She gave me antibiotics.
The next day, I felt fever (but when I measured with thermometer, I was still in normal temperature: 36.74 Celsius degree). I reported this to my doctor. I askes whether if I should take another blood test.
I went to nearest hospital, got my blood tested, the result were indicators still showed positive typhoid symptoms. Even some increased from early Feb.
I reported again to my doc. She asked me to stay in bed, get more rest, take specific diet, healthy cooking, etc. No need to get hospitalized because I'm not acute. I may get infections or be worse if I get hospitalized
I was about to travel next week to Bangkok for a training. I decided to cancel the trip. I can imagine if I get sicker abroad, no way! With spicy food in Bangkok ? I will have heavy diarrhea, then how to concentrate on the training?
I remember last trip in Hua Hin Thailand in December 2009 when I had asthma.

Yesterday I went to see doc again to check, and she gave me more medicine.

So I enjoy my resting time, although sometimes need to check e-mails from office and online shop. I try to be relax and not thinking so much of anything, those are the key. Eventhough I received several e-mails and text messages from my shop buyer, but it's not worth it to follow up, in terms of the sales amount and my health condition.
