Tony Moly Floria Whitening Emulsion Review

Selasa, Januari 29, 2013

If you followed my blog and read about skin care review, you probably have known that I'm really into brightening and anti acne skin care. Lots of acne scars here and there and redness really make me feel: I have to get rid of them! So here is the emulsion that I'm currently using for few months: Tony Moly Floria Whitening Emulsion. Let's see does it meet my expectation to have more radiant skin?

It comes in a white box to match the whitening effect maybe?

Description (from the box):
Tony Moly Floria Whitening Emulsion
Whitening Functional Product includes white flower complex 13,000mg
Fully hydrated with youthful energy and prismatic whitening force creator makes the skin just as fresh & juvenile flower petals

This light touch hydrating moisturizer directly gives ideal skin moisture balancing, free-radical clearing and skin whitening effects. The skin becomes healthy and radiantly transparent with skin turn-over activating and brightening powers. Within one week, skin looks younger & brilliant.

4D Whitening System - Systematic steps of whitening & intensive hydration & skin purifying and antglycation makes the visually effective whitening

*Containing Auxin I.A.A which encapsulated Plant Growth Factor, it gives skin firming and deep into the skin. It is patented ingredient that utilizing nano-liposome technology.

Such a very detail information from the box, huh? It's the first time for me seeing such a very detail infromation and it looks promising enough :3

The emulsion comes in a solid milky white plastic tube. It looks chic and rather expensive with simple but informative text on it. It is quite heavy and not travel-friendly :| And because it's not transparent, I can't see how much product left in the tube :(

It's a bit unusual for me to see the manufactured and expired date printed below the tube. Usually, just one of two options shown but this one is exception xD

It's a pump type product which I love rather than pour-out type so we won't have any difficulties even if the product is going to run out.

The emulsion comes in a white colour and the consistency is quite runny (see the half applied pic).

The scent is really strong in my opinion, the scent is similar to one perfume (I don't know the perfume's name), it's a floral scent. So if you are allergic to perfume, you have to consider this point.

It absorbs quite fast but leaving stickiness on my face. Because of that, I only use it at night while for day time, I use Benefit Triple Performing Emulsion.

 Too bad that after few months of usage, I don't see any significant result from the emulsion. I was excited when reading information on the box: within one week, skin looks younger & brilliant. But I think it's just an advertising words hahahaha -,- It doesn't makes my skin break out but doesn't brighten my skin too. Lately I am lazy to use it so I just skip emulsion part and apply Laneige Water Sleeping Pack instead XD

After all skin care products can't suit everybody. Sadly this one doesn't work well for me but who knows it will work well on you? That's why I always want to try different skin care products because I haven't really found one that really works amazing on me. Without trying, we won't know the result right? :)

Thinking to buy other emulsion. Do you have any recommendation? Feel free to share with me on the comment box below. Thank you and have a nice day! :D


Nature Republic Love Balm Review

Minggu, Januari 27, 2013

 Hello dear.. Most of you must have known brand called Nature Republic right? One of Korean brand that is quite famous and opened their store few months ago in Indonesia. :)
JYJ, Jang Geun Suk (my oppa xD), Rain were their brand ambassador and now is Shin Se Kyung. 

I haven't tried their products as many as other Korean brands, but thank you I got the chance to try two of their products: Love Balm. \(^ω^\)

The packaging is just like a honey pot or a jam, eh? So mini and cute (≧∇≦)

Capacity: 10g

There are two types of the balm: rose and jam. I think jam is their newest product to add to this line. :3

They are sealed well so we can know that there are brand new products. 

Manufactured date and name of products are written below in Hangeul.

The lip balm colour is the same as the overall packaging, apple in red colour and lemon in orange colour but when apply to lips, it . Soon after open the lid, we can smell fresh apple scent for apple jam while for lemon jam, the scent is quite unique. It's not really smell like lemon, but smells like orange. 

You can use your clean finger to apply it to your lips or use brush instead. But I think it's a bit inefficient to take brush everywhere when you want to re-apply it. I wish they include applicator because I don't like to use my finger to apply it on my lips. :( We know that there are so many germs on our hands so be sure to clean your hands before you use it. 

The love balm doesn't feel sticky on my lips but still moisturises well. It does give a glossy look, but still look natural enough and doesn't really like you're using lip gloss.  When I licked it (:p), apple jam really tastes like apple. The scent is the same like Baviphat Apple Sleeping Pack xD While the lemon jam, I don't like the smell. For me, it makes my head dizzy. The scent is the same as Body Shop Grapefruit Lip Butter which I think really not suitable for me :( 

I used it on AC room at the office. I need to reapply it after two hours or after eating. Maybe my team mate thinks that I am a crazy makeup girl hahaha because I like to reapply it again and again. xD I don't care lah as long as my lips is well hydrated because recently my lips is really dry and doesn't look good if I use lipstick so I need to make it healthy again. (= ̄▽ ̄=)V

What I like:
 cute packaging ♥
 travel friendly
 moisturize my lips well
 doesn't feel sticky and gives natural healthy lips look

What I dislike:
 need to use fingers to apply it 

Personally, I prefer apple jam to lemon jam because I can't tolerate the scent of lemon jam :( 

By the way, do you know about Koreabuys ? Koreabuys is an online shop based in Indonesia that sells products from Korea, from cosmetic, body and skin care, fashion, kpop merchandise and etc. Some of their products are ready stock while some must order first then it will be shipped directly from Korea! :D

For Korean cosmetic lover like me, seeing so many brands available there really makes me happy (≧∇≦)
See those brands? Hera, Lacvert, Sulwhasoo, Laneige, Peripera, Etude House, VOV, Nature Republic, and so on.

And..... You have to check out their sale items! Click all products, then choose 'produk event'.

And these are some of the sale items >.<
Seriously I think the sale items price are really affordable ヽ(´∀`)ノ

What are you waiting for, ladies? Go check out their stores at:

Thank you for reading and see you on my next post! ^^

Cleansing Foam

The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam Lemon Review

Kamis, Januari 24, 2013

I like to try different cleansing foam. I think I never used the same cleansing foam more than once, except Etude House AC Clinic Cleansing Foam which I repurchased twice.

Now I would like to introduce you to my current cleansing foam from The Face Shop: Herb Day 365 in Lemon.

Simple and look clean as most of Face Shop's products look like.

All writen in Hangeul except the ingredients.

Water, Myristic Acid, Stearc Acid, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Butylene Glycol, Lauramide Dea, Ceteth-20, Citrus Medica Limonium (Lemon) Fruit Extract (1%), Juniperus Communis Fruit Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Lilium Candidum Flower Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Bark Extract, Borago Officinalis Extract, Saponaria Officinalis Leaf/Root Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Centaurea Cyanus Flower Extract, Echinacea Purpurea Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Glycol Distearate, Peg-40 Stearate, Peg-8, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Propylene Glycol, Disodium Edta, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance (Parfum), Yellow 5 (Cl 19140)

It's still sealed when I opened it for the first time.

The hole where the product will come out. 

The cleansing foam looks yellowish, although in the pic it looks like white colour. It has nice lemon scent which makes me feel so refreshed and awake :D

This is the amount of one palm once I massage it. I think it's hard to produce rich foam with it, no matter how I try ._.

What I like:
 nice lemon scent ♥
 huge amount: 170mL
 works properly as cleansing foam, I can feel my face clean afterward
 doesn't irritate my skin

What I dislike:
 can't make rich foam

So far so good. I don't have any problem with the cleansing foam except for the rich foam. I bought it on Gmarket when there is a discount so I only paid Rp 27.200 or US$2,8, so cheap! xD
But just now when I checked it again, the price isn't that cheap again, it's around $4.4 but still affordable and worth it in my opinion :)

That's all for today and see you on my next post ^^
