MY BEAUTY MNL HAUL – DOES THE TANGLE ANGEL REALLY LIVE UP TO THE HYPE?
I have to be honest I feel like i’m not a pro when it comes to shopping online in the Philippines. I used to do most of my beauty shopping online from abroad. Why? Cos I had many local shopping mishaps (late deliveries, unhelpful customer service, incomplete package) that sort of pushed me to that direction. However, i’ve recently discovered a couple of Manila-based online shopping sites that i was really impressed in terms of their shops service and products — one of them is Beauty MNL.
If you’re not familiar with Beauty MNL, it’s one of the leading beauty online shopping sites that carries a huge variety of big brands such as Loreal, Maybelline, Nars, and so on. Their prices are quite okay, a lot are reasonably and sometimes even inexpensively priced. Plus they hold big promo sales, and give out free shipping to orders P2,000 and above. When I ordered my Tangle Angel brush from them, almost all their Tangle Teezer brushes were in sale.
What makes shopping at Beauty MNL special for me is their brand image and service. Everything starting from their logo, website, how my order was wrapped in a nicely printed sealed sturdy plastic pouch (with two freebies!), and the whole process of ordering on their easy going website is very organized and efficient. I placed my order at 2AM and got my package at around 6PM that day! They are by far the fastest online shop i’ve ever experienced and that puts them at the top of my fave list. I just wish they’d add a wishlist option where we could keep track of the products we want especially so that we can wait for our sold out faves to get restocked but other than this Beauty MNL is an excellent shop.

DOES THE TANGLE ANGEL
LIVE UP TO THE HYPE?
I ordered two things from them but ill only show you one today cos the other item which is a Suesh insulator hanging pouch for my hot curling iron didn’t hang securely to the edge of my vanity desk. It keeps falling off cos the pouch’s body wont secure itself to the table. So we’ll set that product aside and focus on this expensive hair brush thats creating a lot of buzz in the beauty blogging / vlogging world.
I had doubts with the Tangle Angel Classic but after watching tons of videos of girls using this and claiming that this P1280 brush is worth it, i caved in and placed an order. Tangle Angel comes in different shapes (some had angel wings embossed and for some reason i felt uncomfortable looking at them lol), sizes, and colors (they had a cute fairy pink one that i almost bought!). So what’s so special about this brush? First off, I have Hagrid-level frizzy curly hair in real life. I say real life because the Shayne that you see in my blog photos goes through a hair and makeup makeover. You don’t really see my natural REALLY BIG curly hair. Trust me it’s big because its full of secrets! (High five if you get the reference!).
And let me tell you, this brush made my morning hair brushing session less painful while it detangles the frizz off my life. TheTA has smartly placed brush bristles that makes detangling easier and less painful. It doesn’t tug a lot (just a bit). The only weakness it has is its shape, which isn’t really good for styling. I still go back to my Denman brush for styling, and save my TA for mainly detangling purposes. That said, if you’re one of the lucky creatures whose hair rarely gets tangled you will not benefit so much from this brush compared to those with curly frizzy tangle prone hair like me. If your hair is anything like mine this brush is heaven sent. It really does make a difference. Im thinking of getting a Pet Angel (brush version for pets) for my new Yorkie pup Luna for Christmas — but we shall see! I think the brush is way too big for her cos she’s too tiny.
