Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Review

Good day to you dear readers!

Today i am excited to share my review for Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream.

This cream is like magic for me because it does enhance my skin appearance as well as a good primer for my makeup.

So without further delay, let’s discuss this magic cream! 😍


Dr. Jart+ is a Korean brand skincare. I first knew this when i visited Sephora New York and looking for a sunscreen. Then i saw this Cicapair Tiger Grass.

My sis quickly snap the cream and put into her shopping cart and told me that this cream is a legend! A must buy item for flawless healthier skin.

The price is US$56 (after tax) for this Cicapair.

The key ingredient that makes this cream stands out from the rest is the Tiger Grass.

Tiger Grass or Cica or Centella is a grass use by tigers to help them heal the wound from battle. It is effective to promote faster healing and reduce the marks and also anti inflamation.

Wooow So good right!

Not to mention the green color cream that will change to beige / skin color after blending, making face looks flawless and healthier without putting makeup.

(As you can see on the picture above, there’s a green and beige on my hand. And when i blend it, the green color slightly fade and the finishing color is my own skin color)

If you buy this Cicapair in region other than US and UK, you won’t see the “Tiger Grass” title. You’ll only find Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Re-Cover.

Worry not, because the ingredients are all the same. It just the packaging and different title for different continents.

Now, what do i love about this Cicapair?

β€’ SPF 30

If you have follow my blog for quite long, you’ll know that i like using products with SPF not higher than 30. So this is definitely on my check list.

With SPF 30 for daily usage, my skin already protected from the UV. When i go for ourdoor activities, i will put on extra layer of Sunblock for maximum protection

β€’ Cover Redness

The coverage is no joke. Medium coverage that will make my skin naturally flawless. And it does cover the redness! Corrected unbalance skin color.

β€’ Improve Skin Appearance

This cream is ultimate cream for me. It protects skin from UV, cover redness, and with daily routine usage i can see visible enhancement on my skin. Redness fade, smoothen skin.

Yesss even if i too lazy to apply moisturizer, this cream won’t make my skin dry. It blends really well.

It doesn’t clog my pores. Doesn’t trigger any acnes and breakouts.

They don’t stated anything about healing breakouts and acnes, but i could see as i use this cream daily, there’s also speedy recovery for my acnes (Thank God for invented this cream! Life changing)

β€’ Great Primer

It controls my oil well from 8 AM – 6 PM. I only use this cream and finish it with loose powder for my daily usage.

For makeup primer, it helps my makeup stay the whole day.

I have tried using this with BB Cream, BB Cushion, Liquid Foundation, and , Cream Foundation… All works well.

With the medium coverage it gives, then i add foundation on top of it, it gives total coverage and hide my pores well.


I have been recommending this cream to my friends and many of them fall in love and experience the same great result, not to mention those from Mommies Group at Darren’s school.

Kindly zoom the picture above. You’ll definitely can spot pores on my nose, acnes on my chin, and many other skin imperfections.

But do you agree that i still look fresh with healthy skin and naturally flawless? By this not necessarily means no pores and 100% angelic face… But, means with that skin imperfections you still look good (without makeup).

Now i don’t need my foundation to cover my skin. I even went to some Events with only this cream, loose powder, eyemakeup and lipstick. I still apply foundation for more formal events though

I strongly recommend this product to all of you, from normal to dry to oily or even sensitive skin like me.

Good investment to our skin ❀️

My sis even use this Cicapair cream together with Dr.Jart+ Serum and Mask to get maximum result.

For now, i already pleased to only use this as my day cream. Let’s see what will happen in the future. I might change my skincare routine to Dr.Jart+ too. It’s an open possibility.

Have you tried this Cicapair or Dr.Jart+ other products? Do you happy with the result? Share with me by giving your link on the comment box. I would check and read.

Have a great day and stay beautiful love xx ❀️

Evoluderm Micellar Water and Face Mist Review

Hi everybody.

How’s your week?

My week has been great since it’s also my birthday week!

Have you heard about Evoluderm before? I believe many of you know this brand. Evoluderm is from France. In case you haven’t heard or tried this brand, you should give a try because Evoluderm products are like premium products in more affordable budget. I really like it!

And today i can’t wait to share with you my review for Evoluderm newly launched products: Micellar Water and Face Mist !

Thanks to Kay Collectionwhom sent me this set gift to try ❀️

Let’s head to the main topic!

β€’ Evoluderm Micellar Water

For me, cleanse the face need to be taken seriously. I will wipe over and over until my cotton pad is white and leave no trace of dirt. This, usually makes my sensitive skin become red and irritated. Hence, i always hunt for the best remover to cleanse my face, yet gentle enough to my sensitive skin.

I try Evoluderm Micellar Water in Red Color, for dry and sensitive skin / reactive skin.

“Evoluderm Micellar Water stated to remove dirts, grime, and makeup in a minute. It contains citric acid and hydrogenated castor oil to remove dead skin cells, thus promote a healthy clear skin.”

Now what’s my personal experience using this?

I really like this Micellar Water because it’s Paraben Free! Yeayy.

Very light scented (floral fruity) and alcohol free.

The texture is very similar to water, it is light and runny and a bit foamy (when you rub it)

When it comes to wipe daily dirt (with no makeup, just moisturizer and sunblock on face) it works pretty fast. 1 wipe is enough for the whole face and neck.

When it comes to remove makeup, especially the waterproof one…. I need 4 times and sometimes more to clean the makeup.

(Picture above is the demo on my hand, from liptint – lipbalm – lipcream – eyeshadow – and waterproof eyeliner. Then, for the first wipe you can see that makeup residue can be seen clearly. Second wipe, the color is pretty much clean, but waterproof eyeliner still there. Third wipe, pretty much clean but still need another wipe. I still need the fourth wipe and wash it with soap for the best result)

If you don’t mind with wipe it over and over, then you have no problem with this Micellar Water. But if you don’t like to rub your face to often…..

My suggestion will be: use your usual makeup remover first, wash your face, then continue with Evoluderm Micellar Water before continue to apply moisturizer.

In my case, i have no problem with rubbing the cotton pad over and over because this micellar water is (surprise!) gentle enough to my skin.

No redness. No irritation. No itchy and burning feeling.

I don’t feel sticky nor drying. Thumbs up πŸ‘πŸ»

But when i need to rush into something urgent, i prefer to use my usual remover (because it cleanse fast) and use Evoluderm Micellar Water for my third cleaning step ☺️

β€’ Evoluderm Face Mist

Who doesn’t like to spray face mist here? I am a big fan of face mist because it’s really refreshing and helps to hydrate my skin. I have so many Face Mists on my drawer because i could use it daily and run out fast.

Evoluderm Face Mist could “Refresh our skin in the midst of hot weather, prolong our makeup with sea salt face mist. Sea salt will energize, hydrate, and revitalize our skin.”

What’s so different between Evoluderm Face Mist and others?

Here, Evoluderm uses Sea Salt. Other brands usually only use spring water and added a natural fresh scent on it (or no scent).

With this sea salt on the ingredients, believe it or not, you will feel like you’re going to the beach when you spray this on your face and neck. It has a little bit of ocean scent!

Not to mention that sea salt could energize and hydrate our skin too.

I couldn’t agree more to what’s stated there. Because indeed, i have proven that this Face Mist really refresh my skin. I feel energize and skin hydrate well.


That’s all about my review for Evoluderm newly launched products.

If you curious about this, Evoluderm Indonesia is available at:

Kay Collection Stores

Kay Collection Website (www.kaycollection.com) . Kay Collection has world wide shipping service too!

All Guardian Indonesia Stores.

If you’re not living in Indonesia and want to try these products, Evoluderm also available in Guardian Stores in your country . Or do check their official instagram and website to purchase.

I hope you all have a great day and thank you for reading❀️

Gloskin Blogger Gathering

Haloo..

Hari Sabtu kemarin, tanggal 24 Maret 2018, aku dan Blogger Surabaya lainnya berkesempatan datang di klinik Gloskin Mayjen.

Gloskin ini beralamat di Ruko Grand Sungkono A8 176-178 (Jl. Mayjend Sungkono)

081222599908 (nomor ini tersedia juga layanan whatsapp sehingga mudah berkonsultasi dan membuat janji temu)

Pada kesempatan kemarin, kami dikenalkan mengenai Treatment yang ada di Gloskin sekaligus tour kliniknya.

Ternyata, Gloskin sudah berdiri sejak 2012 oleh Dr.Nanang di Jakarta.

Gloskin sendiri juga menerima banyak penghargaan dari excellent service clinic, mengisi banyak acara beauty di televisi maupun majalah.

Kami, para Blogger Surabaya diberi produk knowledge oleh Dr. Intan dari Gloskin.

Dr. Intan menjelaskan bahwa Gloskin memiliki 2 Perawatan: Basic dan Advanced Treatment.

Basic Treatment meliputi:

Facial

Peeling

Laser

PRP

Whitening Program

Slimming Program

Dan Produk kecantikan Gloskin

Sedangkan untuk Advanced Treatment, ada:

3D & 4D Thread Lift

Botox

Advanced Dermal Filler

Jawline Shapping

Chubby Cheek & Double Chin Treatment

Dan Sweatfree Treatment untuk mengurangi keringat berlebih

Lebih jauh lagi, Dr. Intan menjelaskan bahwa treatment yang banyak peminatnya selain filler dan botox adalah PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) dimana treatment ini menggunakan plasma darah pasien sendiri untuk menstimulasi collagen, menghilangkan kerutan alis, mengurangi pori-pori, menyembuhkan bopeng dan flek ringan.

Ada juga Dermaoxy untuk melembabkan kulit, dan Black Pearl Peeling untuk kulit berjerawat.

Bagi yang bertanya, Apa sih kelebihan Gloskin, kan banyak banget klinik kecantikan sekarang ini…

Tim Gloskin dipastikan melayani pelanggan dengan ramah. Selain keramahan, Dokter dan Perawat adalah tenaga ahli dan berpengalaman sehingga pelanggan bisa tenang.

Segala obat dan produk juga diracik oleh Apoteker berpengalaman.

Dari segi kenyamanan tempat, Gloskin juga menyediakan ruangan yang bersih, nyaman, peralatan steril dan modern.

Ada juga ruang bermain anak sehingga para Ibu dapat melakukan perawatan dengan tenang dan si kecil bermain dengan aman.

Satu lagi, produk yang dibuat oleh Gloskin semuanya memiliki BPOM.

Dan setelah berkeliling Gloskin Mayjend dan mendapat penjelasan mengenai treatment Gloskin, pada hari Rabu 4 April 2018 aku mendapat kesempatan mencoba Glowing Facial Treatment nya.

Glowing Facial ini adalah basic facial di Gloskin. Apa bedanya basic facial Gloskin dengan tempat lain?

Di Gloskin, basic facialnya, Glowing Facial, kita sudah mendapatkan perawatan lengkap yaitu:

Cleansing – scrub – massage – mikrodermabrasi (pengangkatan sel kulit mati) – uap – ekstraksi – HF (high frequency) – serum – masker.

Massage nya di sini relax banget. Cocok buat preparation hati sebelum proses ekstraksi dimulai.

Selama proses ekstraksi, kalo aku jujur namanya facial pasti ada sakitnya ya. Terutama untuk komedo membandel. Apalagi aku tipe yang jarang dan ngga berani facial. Jadi kebayang kotorannya numpuk gimana.

Bukan sampe yang sakit bikin bengkak dan nangis kok, cuman air mata ini tetep merembes keluar sedikit-sedikit *haha*

Tapi ya rembesan air matanya sebanding dengan kulit bersih setelah facial. Komedo hitam-hitam hilang.

Jadi lebih glowing mukanya.

Selama facial juga terapis Gloskin nya selalu menanyakan β€œapa ada yang sakit? Apa ada yang perih?” Supaya kita tetap merasa nyaman selama proses treatment. Mereka juga selalu memberitahu apa yang sedang dilakukan di wajah kita supaya kita teredukasi dengan langkah treatmentnya .

Service dan pelayanannya memuaskan.

Bagi teman-teman yang tidak sabar mencoba melakukan perawatan di Gloskin, Gloskin terdapat di 13 kota besar di Indonesia:

Jakarta

Bekasi

Tangerang

Surabaya

Malang

Gresik

Bali

Banjarmasin

Makassar

Balikpapan

Mataram

Good Skincare Under 100K (BAHASA)

Hello semuanya..

Hari ini aku mau review beberapa produk yang aku belinya ngga sengaja dan ternyata bagus banget! Oh and they’re so affordable juga! Jarang banget kan ya ada produk dengan harga yang terjangkau tapi bagus banget.

Jadi aku cukup surprise dan ngga sabar buat bagiin reviewnya, karena ternyata kulit super sensitive aku akhirnya ketemu sama produk yang affordable dan bagus… Praise God! ❀️

Okeee tanpa berbasa basi, produk pertama adalah:

β€’ POND’S ACNE SOLUTION Face Wash

Sabun cuci muka satu ini ternyata endesss banget!

Harganya yang sangat cocok dikantong (belasan ribu sampe 20 an only) baik anak sekolahan sampe emak-emak, bikin ini jadi new favourite!

Setelah pemakaian, kulit ngga terasa kering dan kaku kok. Sangat lembut, enak.

Untuk scentnya sendiri yang natural yah bukan tipe wangi wangi juga bukan yang bau obat atau charcoal atau bau mud gitu engga kok.

Nah untuk kulit sensitive aku, jerawat yang ada ngga makin merah meradang. Juga bukan langsung kempis hilang sih. Tetep perlu dibantuin sama obat jerawat dan makan yang bener.

Cuman rasa gentle sabunnya dan cukup bersihnya bikin jadi suka.

Oh selain ini ngga bikin jerawat yang ada memerah, ini juga ngga promote new acnes kok πŸ™‚

One important thing, ngga bikin kusam!!!! Haha

I have finished one tube now dan beneran happy with this πŸ™‚

So, yes yes yes for this!

βœ”οΈ Affordable

βœ”οΈ No dull face

βœ”οΈ Gentle

β€’ ERHA 21 Sunscreen Gel

Sunscreen Erha ini ada beberapa macam yah. Karena kulit aku oily, aku ambil yang tipe oily ini (warna kuning tulisan tube nya)

SPF 25 PA++ untuk UVA dan UVB.

Harganya 70 ribuan only for 30 gram.

Sukaaa banget karena ini super light! Cepet meresap. Ngga bikin makin oily. Ngga clog di pores juga. Berasanya kayak pake air aja dimuka.

Warnanya putih, texturenya ngga kayak gel sih, kayak cream tapi more watery dan light feelnya.

Lalu sunscreen yang satu ini dilengkapi vitamin E dan Pro Vitamin B5 untuk perlindungan extra bagi kulit kita dari photo damaging sun ray, dan pastinya menutrisi juga yah.

Ada ngga di sini yang kalo pake sunscreen lalu suka keluar jerawat kecil-kecil selaen aku? I used to experience that, most of the time. Makanya aku picky banget sama yang namanya suncreen. And well, this one ngga promote acnes sama sekali.

So greattt!!

Kalo ditanya SPF 25 cukup ngga si? Well aku ngga suka pakai produk dengan SPF di atas 30. Jadi buat aku ini cukup.

Soalnya ke satu, aku ngga yang lalu berjemur di bawah matahari terus-terusan. Dan kedua, primer atau foundation yang aku pake juga ada SPF lagi. Jadi cukup si buat aku.

So this is a yesss for me..

βœ”οΈ Affordable

βœ”οΈ Light

βœ”οΈ No comedos, no acnes

βœ”οΈ Terserap cepat dikulit

βœ”οΈ Ngga ganggu pemakaian makeup

Downside: – None, super love this!

You can buy this di Erha Apotechary di mal-mal terdekat.


Ini adalah 2 produk baru yang aku coba secara ngga sengaja dan ternyata bagus.

Kalo ditanya, will i continue buying this dan move on dari face wash atau sunscreen aku yang lama?

My honest answer will be……

Face wash: i still love Cetaphil so so so so much! Jadi i’m going to continue with Cetaphil. Tapi pernah aku bahas kan kalo aku suka Cetaphil nya yang khusus dan ngga masuk indo, jadi kalo stock abis, dan yang dari luar belom nyampe ke alamat aku….. yes, i’m gonna buy Pond’s lagi. Coz why not? Aku uda buktiin bagus dan suka.

Sunscreen: as compared to my previous sunscreen seharga IDR 800K, yeahhhh aku bakal change to Erha21 haha! Save some more!

Karena ya itu tadi sih emang bagus, affordable, lalu juga makeup setelahnya uda ada SPF lagi. Lalu sebelom sunscreen, skincarenya juga uda yang aman jadi dipastikan kulit uda terlindungi. (Why terlindungi? Karena aku tau kok banyak yang bilang brand ini nanti bisa bikin kecanduan, kulit malah ngga bagus, dll. But this is just sunscreen so i am confident and trust the brand)

So that’s all about temuan bagus aku kali ini.

Ask me anything and share with me your experience too! I really love to see some feedbacks and read your story ❀️

With Love,

The Power of Essential Oils

Essential Oils have become a trend since 2017.

Many beauty influencers as well as mommies were purchasing these oils to boost the immune and detox their skin.

Because of the hype, i really curious to try how good the essential oils are but never really bought until recently (because some also multi level marketing, that’s what hinders me from buying. I am afraid that the price isn’t worth the hype)

Till one fine day, Darren won a Peppermint Young Living Oil from @the.essential.oils .

So i now, have the chance to prove it myself.


Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil

The Peppermint claimed to be excel in following areas:

Reduce fever

Allergy Relief

ADHD Support

Anti-itch

Sinus Care

Joint Therapy and

Natural Energizer.

You can either dillute it, diffuse it as aromatherapy, or even apply topically, and drop few into your beverage.

I used the Peppermint for natural energizer and better respiratory when dealing with cold, cough and fever.

I pour 6 drops to my diffuser (bought this at @bunnyandclouds instagram. Mini, 7 warmth lighting, high area coverage, not noisy, auto shut off when water runs out) and put it on standby mode for 4 hours.

And how was it?

It really relieved the respiratory. The menthol was strong and delightful!

I totally love the smell and feeling.

It gives pleasure to my joint muscles.

But i do not drink or eat this, nor use it for anti itch, sinus care, ADHD, fever and allergy relief.

If you just heard about Young Living, this brand claimed to have the highest grade of oils. That’s why you can even drink few drops of the essential oils.

Now that this is not yet approved by FDA , do not used as the substitute of your doctor prescription.


After sometimes diffusing the peppermint, i find new hobby to lift up my spirit with fresh scent!

So i browse what could be better than Peppermint, and many said that i need oils for immune booster.

People will purchase Melrose, Purification, Thieves YLO for immune booster.

Thieves is about IDR 515k for 15 ml if you’re a member, Purification is around IDR 285K.

I don’t know about Melrose price, but i guess we need to spend IDR 1 mil to get perfect immune booster.

Now i am going to introduce you Indonesian local brand, Belli To Baby by JAMU.

Jamu has been widely known for their herbal medication and i am excited to know they has EO that they claimed could be used topically and aromatically too.

So i bought their immune booster oil, cost IDR 198k for 10ml.

The oil consist of:

Eucalyptus

Tea Tree

Lavender

And Lemon.

Claimed to strengthen the body system, better skin, better respiratory and safe for baby.

The lavender and eucalyptus smell are the strongest here. I can directly identify the scent when i open the lid.

And today i have been diffusing this oil for quite long time and Darren’s immune also good.

He had a cough week ago and usually with the medicine intake, it will take 4-7 days for full recovery. But within 3 days, he has been doing well.

How happy mommy is! I don’t need to spend 1 mil or more for immune booster.

Please take a note that i don’t think oil was the medicine here. Darren recovered faster than before, but i do keep an eye to his meals, drinks, and the oil was just an additional.

By additional means this is not a must. I believe oral vitamins, or natural vitamins like good balance food and fruits and veggies, enough rest, and clean atmosphere still take 90% of it πŸ™‚

I am highlighting that he’s doing well with Belli To Baby just to let you know that it doesn’t necessarily means we need to purchase the highest grade of oils or the expensive one.


After immune booster oil that has lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus and a lil bit of lemon on it….. i still have one more favorite scent.

Lemongrass Young Living Essential Oil

Lemongrass is good for:

Metabolism

Skin

Freshen the air

Detox

Anti cancer

And again, because this is from YLO, you can apply topically, pour into food and beverage, or diffuse.

For me, diffusing is favourite way to enjoy the oil!

My appetite always good even before using the oil, so i don’t see any wonder of this on myself.

I do apply the oil on Darren’s feet and stomach. They said it can help to boost appetite (it’s no longer a secret that Darren doesn’t like eat!!)

So was it work on Darren?

He did eat well and a lot! But is it because of YLO? I don’t think so.

I diffuse only once a week to refresh the air in the room. And apply on tummy and feet only once.

I don’t apply it on his skin ever more.

And don’t diffuse daily.

Nah if you ask me why he eats a lot lately, i think every child has a phase in their life. Moody, picky eaters, and after they pass the phase, they will eat well again. And now, his teeth also almost complete, and this promote to easy munching too.


That’s all about the health benefit. Now what about beauty benefits?

Lemongrass also believe to improve better skin complexion.

And i don’t see that this oil works for my skin.

Now if you ask me, how many times we need to use the oil…..

I will say, only if needed.

I don’t think it’s good to breathe the aromatherapy every day, even the purest oil has something on it. Come on!

Natural (fresh air) is the best!

So if you think you or your loved ones feel tired, exhausted.. Then it is good time to diffuse the oil.

Or three times a week to freshen the air on your home is also acceptable.

I don’t see it is necessary to diffuse everyday, everynight.

And most of the oil families use it almost daily and treat this eo as an alternative medicine.

I do believe that what makes you healthy and your immune improves aren’t the oils, but the habits.

It’s no way you will be healthy if you don’t tidy up the room, clean it, and eat balance food. Diffusing, drink the oil won’t help.

The oils here just an additional booster.

But again, i put the choice and action for you to take πŸ™‚

Oh before i forget, i have read many companies that sell EO are now stated that it is PURE, COULD USE TOPICALLY, and DIFFUSE.

Remember that eo isn’t meant to be on direct contact with sensitive skin.

You need to dillute with natural oil like jojoba, grapeseed, or cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. (Unless your skin is not sensitive, then you can use it directly on skin. Please put small amount to test first)

β€’β€’β€’

Every family is unique. One might doing well with just a local brand essential oil. One might need the highest grade of oil. Many don’t even need oils to promote their better health.

Just use and buy what you believe is good for your family.

That’s what matter isn’t it? ❀️

I can derive my conclusion now…. Essential oil….

I love to have them to lift up my mood, my spirit and freshen the air.

I don’t treat eo as something that works wonder like medicine (but this is nature and organic) no no no…

It just a “supplement” in special condition πŸ™‚

And what is a supplement? It means an additional only. Not a must.

Stay clean and healthy! Eat well, rest well, exercise well!

That’s the cheapest key to longer happier and healthier life ❀️ not buying specific essential oils πŸ™‚

Have a great day!

Shinzui Ume Complete Your Day Event & Products Review

Good day to you Beauty Lovers.

On Saturday 20th January 2018, i was invited to come to the Launching of Ume Body Mist from Shinzui at One Pose Cafe Surabaya.

The theme was White and Pink with the tagline “Complete Your Day”.

Why “Complete Your Day”?

Because these cute body mist meant to complete your day.

There are 4 variance for 4 different personalities (Preppy, Pretty, Sweet, and Elegant) with different fresh scents.

But no worries if you can’t choose which one is the best for your personality because you can always test and go with the most lovable scent that you like.

Purple – Keiko : consists of Lavender, Wood, Geranium, Peony and Rose. Her personality matches for those elegant teens.

Red – Isheiya: Citrus, Bergamot, Cassis, Jasmine and Vanilla. The personality of Isheiya is sweet and love arts.

Green – Hatsune: Pineapple, Peach, Apricot, Rose, Orchid. Are you typical Preppy? Here is one to match your personality.

Pink – Ayumi: Plum, White Berries, and White Lily. Ayumi represents the pretty and stylish teens out there.

During the event, Brand Manager of Shinzui Ume – Ibu Retno Sari Ayuningtyas (or Ibu Tyas for the nickname) explained that Shinzui Ume is for teenager, but adults would also be welcomed to use this body mist.

It has unique design represents the cute Japanese Doll – Kokeshi, with easy to carry size. Perfect for travelling because it can fits perfectly inside our bag.

The ingredients inside comes from natural ingredients such as flowers and fruits, to make sure the scents really fresh to brighten up our days.

On that special occasion, Shinzui also invited Beauty Influencer Stefani Gabriela to share with us “How To Become A Complete Beauty Influencer” as well as tips and tricks to take and edit our pictures before posting it on social media.


Now it’s time for my personal review.

First of all, i will score 10 out of 10 for the packaging! I can’t help myself to collect all the cute bottles.

Design is cute and perfect.

Size is easy to carry.

Contains 100ml per bottle.

It comes with sprayer for easy usage.

Then the fragrance….

The similarity of the 4 body mists is the fresh, sweet, and light scented combination of flowery and fruity fragrance.

I can’t really choose which one because i like them all. But if i got to choose one, i will pick Keiko – Purple Doll because the fragrance closed to my favourite scent.

It really gives me extra mood booster to feel fresh throughout the day.

You have already read above that the personality of Keiko is Elegant. I guess that describes me well πŸ™‚ An elegant mother and blogger *lol* (excuse my narcism)

If i want to feel a bit lovely and sweet i will pick Ayumi (Pink) and Isheiya (Red). Feeling preppy? I guess Hatsune (Green) described me well.

But again, Keiko (Purple) is the best to complete my day.

Now let’s talk about the price….

Shinzui Ume Body Mist is super affordable and can easily be found in many marts, convenient stores, and more.

And i am done with the review. I really like the mists.

Do you want a little tips from me on how to use the body mist?

After shower, spray the mist about 15 cm to your body. Remember, not to the clothes you gonna wear, right into the skin.

And after that you can spray a bit on the clothes for a longer freshness.

If that’s not enough, i strongly suggest to use complete product from Shinzui from the body wash, scrub, to the mist. You won’t regret and that wonderful scent will linger on your body all day long! ❀️

That’s all from me. If you want to know more about Shinzui Ume Body Mists, more beauty tips, and beauty events…. You can follow its Instagram at @ShinzuiUme_id.

They gonna have big exhibition on Central Park Jakarta on 13 February 2018 and it’s open for public. They gonna have photobooth, games, prizes and more.

So do check up and have fun together!

Have a good day!πŸ’•

Secret Key Toner and STE Review

Hello beautiful!

This is my first beauty review for 2018, wohoo..

And today i am going to share my review for Secret Key products: Toner and STE

We all know that the Japanese and Korean beauty regime always have a set of skincare to be applied, and Japanese always have the higher price.

And we all do know that it’s a public secret that Secret Key from Korea has successfully create a dupe for SK-II.

Since i am a SK-II loyal user, i want to test it by myself whether this more affordable products from Secret Key really do the tricks πŸ˜‰


Secret Key Toner

Milk Brightening Toner

Secret Key has wide variant of toners, but i simply choose the Milk Brightening Toner because: It’s a non-alcohol prescription tonner and very gentle even for sensitive skin.

This toner is caring dry skin after facial wash, helping dead skin cells to be removed and promote brighter skin, elastic skin, and well nourished and moisturized skin.

It contains AHA so make sure you don’t use any vitamin C serum.

The texture is watery and the color is like murky water, no scent at all.

You can use cotton pad but i prefer to spill it on the palm of my hands and then i will dab it and gently pat to the whole face and neck.

The size is quite big. It is 248 ml, and it can lasts 1 year and more with generous routine application.


Secret Key STE

Limited Edition Rose

Same case with the Toner, Secret Key STE also offers wide range of choice from the Gold STE, Standard STE to the limited edition Rose.

All Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence contain galactomyces which is also used in SK-II FTE products.

And i choose The Rose STE edition because the function is more wide and promising. It promotes brighter skin, reduce fine lines, calming the epidermis, moisturized skin, calming acnes and prevent breakouts, and also reducing big pores.

To apply this, i simply pour it on my palms again 😁 Maybe because i watch too many K-Dramas, i just prefer to apply the skincare that way.

And i heardddd (okay this might be wrong okay), by gently tapping with your palms, your skin will absorb the nutrient better than using a cotton pad.

I leave it to you to believe it or not.

Oh i love the packaging. The bottle looks simply elegance. But same case with SK-II FTE 75ml, the bottle is a glass bottle. You might want to be extra careful while handle it or… you will break the glass and waste the essence *sob*

It happen to me once, it really broke my heart (and wallet).


Personal Opinion

I have been using Secret Key Toner and Rose STE for 3 months now and i am happy that the products seem good πŸ™‚

Better complexion βœ”οΈ

Less acnes and breakouts βœ”οΈ

I couldn’t really tell about the fine lines and pores. And it makes my skin slightly radiance.

Please don’t compare this to SK-II. I wake up with “a really” crystal clear face in the morning while using SK-II.

But not with this Secret Key. At least, it doesn’t make my skin dull like other brands. So i’m quite pleased 😊

Money wise… Secret Key is wayyy more affordable βœ”οΈ

Next…

I don’t know whether this only happen to me or not, but i do undergo some purging period on my chin while using the toner and STE. It gets better after 1 month of daily routines.

So if you ask me if this worth, i will say YESSSS. For those on budget tight, this will do the trick and improve your overall skin.

But again if they say this is the dupe of SK-II and resulting on the same progress on face…. i disagree.

And that’s all about my personal review for Secret Key Toner and Rose STE. The picture above are the products i use daily (secret key used for 4 months now for review purpose)

Toner – Essence – Moisturizer – Zero Sebum Powder – and Lip Scrub.

Simple Party Look

Hello readers! Been a long week i delayed my post. I had several serious things happen to my baby (but thank God he’s completely great now) and we’re having our holiday! So i really depend on WIFI before have a time to buy local simcard.

Today i want to share with you how i did my makeup for my cousin’s wedding last week, in Bali.

It was out of nowhere, i have the courage to do my own party makeup.

As for your information, i always do no-make up makeup which make my sister, who is a professional certified MUA always criticized me, as the waste of makeup products with no different at all on my face (within makeup and bare face) LOL.

So when i decided to ask no MUA and did my own makeup, she’s quite worry and teach me a lesson on Party Makeup.

Looks like lesson well received and implemented as i got a lot of compliments at the day of the wedding from our family and relatives, and on Instagram Direct Message .

Soooo… If someone as noob as me could do this well, you do can do it! And here i am, sharing with you.

My skin become smooth instantly and all the makeup could stay. Not to mention how easy and effortless my foundation cover all the pores, red spots and even panda eyes.

Now for the tips….

To create party makeup look, you need to be generous in applying your foundation.

I put around 3 big pearls on forehead, 5 big pearls size foundation on each cheecks, 1 pearl size on nose, 3 on chin, and 1 on upper lip.

I blend them all using a silly sponge by gently tapping in one by one and spread it evenly on all the face.

Then, next important thing is, make the eyes shine!

Put on bold and thick lashes will make your makeup stand out effortlessly.

That’s all from me ❀️

Hope you learn something here and could create your own party makeup look πŸ™‚

Have a good day!

My Skincare Routine

Good day to all of you ❀️

By now, i believe you have already read my reviews about skincare products. There’re quite a lot about them.

Just in case you’re wondering what my skincare routine aside of the brands that i’ve been reviewing is…. and that’s what i am going to talk on this post.

My SkincareRoutine

Step 1: Face Cleanser
I have already discussed this before. I am a loyal customer ofΒ Cetaphil Facial WashΒ (it’s an active link. Click to find my review) . I clean my face twice daily during bath time.

Step 2: Moisturizer and Friends

img_3612
I have been using SK-II for the past 2 years (from 2015) and pretty happy with the result.

I know in term of money, this brand is quite expensive.

Still, i can’t help myself to try and become SK-II loyal customers after seeing the great result.


Before SK-II i used skincare from doctor and it made my skin “addicted” to his medicine and dull. So i stopped and changed to drugstore brand like Ponds, Garnier, and even Etude House.

When i reached my 25, i finally decided to take a good care of my skin. I did believe that skin health is important. I can’t hide under the makeup forever.

I am a strong believer that to prevent is better than to cure.

Therefore i went to SK-II counter, did my skin problem check and started using the products diligently.

All this time, i knew that my skin type is combination skin and it’s super sensitive. After the skin checked, i knew that i carried genetic skin which has a lot of naughty spots if i don’t take a good care of my skin 😞😭

Hence, the Beauty Consultant recommended me to use:

β€’ SK-II Clear Lotion – This is to eliminate dead skin cell. This clear lotion also helps our skin to fully absorb the essence/serum/cream that we are going to apply, hence, it maximized the function/main purpose of the product.

I use this twice daily, after cleansing.

β€’ SK-II FTE– Use this twice daily. Simply gently pat the cotton to face and neck. Sometimes i prefer to use my own hand and sprayer 😊 FTE helps skin to become crystal clear.

I do really believe and see the result myself. My dull skin completely change to be brighter 😊 This is a must have item!

You can also purchase this alone and apply another skin treatment from various brands.

β€’ SK-II Genoptic Spot Essence is to eliminate all the spots (in surface of the skin, as well as under the skin). I use this twice daily after FTE.
The result is visible within 2 weeks of routine usage. I am so glad. As for the spots that placed under my skin, the numbers also reduced.

β€’ SK-II Radical New Age (R.N.A) Cream
My day and night cream. This to tighten the skin. I am 27 years old now. I need products that help me to fight the early sign of aging. And we can actually use this cream at the age of 25.

I’ve been using this cream for 2 years, and i am happy enough to know that my skin age is 11 years old! (i am 27 now) .

(Bare Face: No foundation/bb/cc/powder. Only SK-II cream on skin. Eyebrow korean shading semi permanent and eyeliner)

You can look at the picture above. I am happy with my skin. It’s flawless even without makeup or powder. I am a pleased SK-II Customer ❀️

Oh FYI, SK-II products are formulated to cover “all skin type”. You can do the skin check and ask for suitable product to cater your skin’s need.

And if you buy almost full set of their products, the estimate cost will be around IDR 5 to 6 million (i can use them for almost 1 year [except the 30ml genoptic essence] Large size + you will get free gifts too)

Step 3: UV Cream

I am using Frozen Age Verglass UV Cream. Love this because it has good coverage and also it is tinted, so it feels like foundation. Easy to blend on skin and makeup.

Read the full review here: Frozen Age Skincare Review

You can get this UV cream for IDR 750,000 for 30 ml.

If you find it hard to get this product, you can try Melanox at Guardian. It’s also tinted. At the price of IDR 200,000 this product is not as good as Frozen Age but more ‘wallet friendly’.

Purbasari Hi Matte Lipcream Review

Hello beauty lovers ❀️ How are you today?

I am so excited to share with you my review for Purbasari Hi-Matte Lipcream.

Purbasari is a local brand from Indonesia selling skincare and beautycare products. Its lipstick has been a famous and most wanted since the past one year.

And today, thanks to Surabaya Beauty Blogger, i got the chance to try it by myself, for their collaboration project with Purbasari.


We all know that a lipstick could make a total different change to someone’s face.

Therefore, we must find the right lipstick to enhance our beauty.

This, including to find the right color, right formula and ingredients.

And i am pleased to have this box set of 5 colors from Purbasari Hi-Matte Lipcream HYDRA series.


Why Purbasari Hi-Matte Lipcream?
Lip cream gives a matte finished on lip, gentle, not easily stain, and long lasting as compared to other type of lipsticks.

I personally love Purbasari Hi-Matte Lipcream because:

β€’ The Color Variance is Great

img_5458
I could use them from casual to formal gathering.

For a daily look, i prefer 01 Vinca and 02 Azalea.

For attending event, or to look stand out without being too much, wear 03 Lantana and 04 Zinnia.

Now, for more formal gathering, glamorous, and bold makeup, 05 Freesia is the Queen!

β€’ Leave No Stain
When a brand claimed that its lipstick leave no stain, i always a bit skeptical about it.

But Purbasari Hi Matte Lipcream does proof that they’re not only sugarcoat and selling the product.

It really leave no stain.

The color stay on my lip even i drink water, juice, tea, eating oily food, and then wipe it with tissue.

Hence it leads to another point from me which is:

β€’ Long Lasting
Purbasari Hi Matte Lipcream is really pigmented and long lasting. But not to worry, you can remove this easily with makeup remover later on.

I clumsily left a smudge on my blouse and to my surprised, it was easy to clean with water and detergent.

β€’ Moist
Upon application, it feels moist on lip. No crack on lip after the usage. It is really safe and healthy. It contains Vitamin E too.

β€’ Affordable
The price ranged at IDR 55,000 depends on which store you make your purchase for one lipcream with netto 6.5 g.

β€’ HALAL

It may not be a signifacant need in other countries. But in majority of Moslem country such as Indonesia, having this “Halal” certification means a lot.

As it is doesn’t really affect me, but i am glad to share this so that people will know and have no doubt when buying this.

Later on, i found out that Purbasari Hi Matte Lipcream was produced and proven to contain antioxidants & UV Filter. It is long lasting, fast drying and high coverage.

Couldn’t argue with the statement because i have proven it by myself ❀️

Now let’s see how the color turns on my lip:

β€’ The Casual – Daily Look

β€’ The Date & Hangout Look

β€’ The Glamorous LookIMG_5630 What do you think about them?

If you ask me which one is my favourite from Purbasari Hi Matte Lipcream Hydra Series, i will confidently say that i like 02Azalea. The color is pink choco nude, my forever crush for lippie.
