My Skin Problems

Sabtu, September 29, 2012

I think all of us has our own skin problems. Maybe large pore, acne, blackhead? First of all, my skin type is oily combination: oily at T-zone area and normal at other area. This condition leads to large pores, blackhead, whitehead, and acne-prone. All-in-one package -_-

From that all-in-one package, what I hate the most is the acne scars and the redness. Seiously, redness and acne scars really make my face looks like some sort of kepiting rebus. Hahaha.. ._.

I've heard of product line from Innisfree that is specialized for troubled skin: Jejubija Anti-Trouble Line. Innisfree has been known for its eco-friendly products and so far I really love its Jeju Pore Clay Mask <3.

1. Jejubija Anti-Trouble Spot Essence R

 2. Jejubija Anti-Trouble Spot Essence W

Both are spot essence but essence W is for acne that is just shown up, while essence R is for the redness.


Besides acne scars and redness, i also have problems with dark circle. Yeahh sometimes I think I look like a ghost because of this dark circle and my pale face -,- I was searching for Innisfree products and I saw this White Tone up Eye Serum.
I think I need to try this since it's made from 5 kind of berries extracts and green complex and free of paraben, chemical perfume, and so on. :D


Luckily, there is an online shop here in Indonesia selling this products ready stock called: Shabang Shabang. (^0^)/ They sell Korean cosmetic brands like Innisfree, Holika Holika, and Nature Republic with affordable price. There is also pre-order system for some products that are not available as ready stock. 


So do you have any recommendation on what product should I use? ^^

Tony Moly Masquerade 4D White Mask Review

Senin, September 24, 2012

Hello girls.. I just want to make short review about this mask sheet. See the pink color and the masquerade? I couldn't hold myself from buying this since I saw it hahahaha... xD It's available in two color: white and black, though for me the white color is more to pink color. :p




I tried to find the product description on Google but I couldn't find one. :| So I suppose it's for whitening effect and it's 32mL. What's new for me is the 4D word. I ever used Etude's 3D mask and know the difference between 3D mask and ordinary mask is it covers till neck. What about 4D mask? From the illustration above you can see that there's a part of the mask that we can secure at our ear so the mask stay still at its place. 

The sheet is quite thick, I don't know what is the material of it ._.

This is the connector part to the ear.

Me using the mask sheet, look like a ninja -_-

Actually the mask is too big for my face, you can see that it covers upper part of my mouth ._. It's instructed to use around 20-30 minutes but I used it almost for one hours, until I felt that the sheet was already dried. Although it's 32ml, I don't think that the essence is that much. It's not too watery and kinda difficult to absorb to my face, maybe because of the material of the mask sheet.

What I like:
 cute packaging
 nice scent, not too strong floral scent
 feel the cooling sensation once I use it
 affordable price

What I dislike:
 the whitening effect is just temporary
 although it's 32mL, but i don't think that the essence is that much.


Nothing special about this mask. Maybe I can see the whitening effect after I used the mask, but it's not last long. I still prefer My Beauy Diary mask to this mask. But if you are curious about the whitening effect or maybe interested in the black masquerade mask, then you should give it a try. :)










Laneige

Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_Ex Review

Sabtu, September 22, 2012

Most of you must have known about this sleeping pack from Laneige. I think it's so popular and one of Laneige's best seller. Laneige is one of South Korea cosmetic brand under Amorepacific Corporation: the largest cosmetic company in there. Several other brands from Amorepacific is Etude House, Innisfree, Sulwhasoo, Hera, Espoir, etc. Song Hye Kyo is the brand ambassador for Laneige, she is so pretty *.*

Okay okay back to the topic. I know this is one of sleeping pack that is highly raved by bloggers so I asked my mom to buy it at Sasa when she went to Hongkong last February. The price is cheaper than buying from Indonesia online shop (see my Sasa haul here).



Description (from www.laneige.com):
Light-gel texture provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation. 
Skin types: All Skin
Size: 80mL

Night time skin transmission (permeability) shows higher rate than the one in the day time. Applying it right before sleep time, the best state for the skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply.
The function of skin remarkably declines in the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deep hydrates fatigue and dry skin while Ceramide SLN formula strengthens the skin barrier. With containing the Snow water, it helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized.

  • Antioxidant effect of Hunza Apricot Extracts helps brighten skin tone evenly by removing harmful oxygen and purifying skin.
  • Recoverine from Chestnuts promotes turnovers of horny layers to remove dead cells away for vigoroys water supply and sleek skin texture.
  • An aromatic essence compound exclusively developed by AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent, helps to relax your mind and body and derive for a good sleep. A good sleep effect allowing sufficient relaxation eventually reinforces skin restoration for healthier skin condition. Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood, etc. , are contained in the Sleepscent.
Beta Glucan --> skin regeneration effect
Ceramide SLN --> moisture loss protection
Hunza Apricot Extract --> skin purification
Chestnust Extract --> improving skin texture



There are spatula, brochure, and sleeping pack inside the box. The sleeping pack comes in blue jar, it's quite thick and heavy. The packaging is plain, nothing special about it. Maybe because Laneige is not targeted for only teenager, so the packaging is made universally plain. ._.


The brochure is really helpful for me. It explains about the product really detail, all of the description above is also explained in the brochure, plus how to use and face relaxing massage. It's written in Hangeul, English, and Mandarin.

Spatula is a plus point for you who like hygiene.

Although I don't like the packaging blue colour, but I like the gel blue colour. I love pastel and soft colour so seeing those colours make me relaxed. Well I think it's different one person to another :p

Because it's a sleeping pack, I use it at the end of my night skin care routine as a closing part ._. I took the product out with spatula but when I'm too lazy, I will just use my hand. Okay for you who have hygience issues, sorry about that. When you are just too tired after one day activities and all you wanna do is sleep right away, then you may just want quick finish of those skin care routinity ._. I dot the sleeping pack at several parts of my face like forehead, cheek, nose, and chin and spread them outwards. Oh and don't forget the neck area. It's absorbed pretty fast, I don't have to wait for a long time to go to sleep. Less than 5 minutes I think.

It smells heavenly! Uhmm I mean the smell is really relaxing. After a long tiring day and then you smell this, you will feel so much much better. <3 

I like how it doesn't feel sticky on my face. Besides, I can feel the moisturizing effect soon after it's absorbed into my skin. The next morning when I wake up, my face doesn't feel oily at all. That's a plus point for me. Because when I use other cream or sleeping pack, the next morning my face will be very oily, but this doesn't happen when I use this sleeping pack. Wow.. :D And my face feels plump afterwards. As for the brightening effect, uhmm maybe my face turns out brighter than before but I don't know is it because of this sleeping pack or other skincare that I use so I couldn't give any comment about it.

The gel-type sleeping pack.

after using it.

What I like:
 Sleepscent really makes my mood better. The smell is very relaxing 
 Mosturize my face
 My face isn't oily the next day I wake up
 Plumper afterwards
 Doesn't make me break out

What I dislike:
 The packaging is too boring but that's not really a problem


Now I know why it's so highly favourited by so many people out there after me myself use it and love the result too.. It's really a worth-to-try product. Maybe it's pricey compare to other Korean brand but yeahhh you won't know if you never try it. ^^

Make Over: Office Make Up Look for Tika

Kamis, September 20, 2012

Last week, I went to Puncak for office training from Sunday to Friday. I am so happy to have this chance to free myself from work and gathering with my office friends. :D We had 5 days training at Lembah Hijau Hotel. Two people slept in one room and my roommate was Tika, my college friend.

On Thursday night after we were having barbeque, I started my mission with Tika, yes that is makeover. Hahaha.. xD So after we changed into our pajamas, the mission started. :p

Here is the before-after pic

So this is Tika's face without makeup. Her face is actually look good without makeup, no acne scars and dark circle is not too visible. Her lids is hooded I think.

After base + bb cream + brow powder + eye shadow

Plus eyeliner on the left eye. I use brown eyeshadow because it will look more natural for office look. :)

See the difference between left and right eyes? Yes, the left one looks bigger because of the eyeliner. That's why I love eyeliner xD

After that, I told her to curl her lashes herself but she was too afraid to do it and I was afraid too ._. So I applied mascara without curling it first and well the result was not too bad. :p

Final look without eyeliner on lower lash line.

Final look with eyeliner on lower lash line.

After the eye makeup, I applied blush on and tinted lip balm. Too bad I didn't bring bronzer to countour her cheeks :(


Products I used:
 Lioele Triple Solution BB Cream
 Holika Holika Baby Bloom Powder #2
 Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek PK301
 Tony Moly Party Lover Cake Eyebrow
 Nyx Trio Eyeshadow TS26A Dune

 Masami Shouko 210

That night we had so much fun although we were already so sleepy. Hahaha.. Thanx to Tika who wanna be my 'kelinci percobaan' xD She is so happy with the eyeliner effect on the eyes and I hope she can do this for her everyday look.

So how do you think about this makeover? Which one do you like more: the one with or without eyeliner on the lower lash line? Do leave comment on below boxes to let me know what you think ^^
