Nature Republic Super Aqua Max

Hello lovelies,

I'm back with more moisturizers that you could ever digest :D I'm a huge fan of this moisturizer and this is my second purchase. The first one I own is the pink one for dry skin, this version, the cyan shade is for normal combination skin.

-*-



The product comes in a heavy glass like jar, clear with colored inner side so it looks like water or thermal water, an illusion of ice also and gives us a glimpse of what's inside, a skin hydrator.

Twist the lid open and there's a lid that covers the surface made out of white plastic, just open it and behold, the gel with the same tone as the container, beautiful gel that seems so cooling and moisturizing the skin.

A spatula is provided for hygienic purpose.

Aside from the texture, the aroma of the moisturizer is so fragrant, reminds me of Biotherm but that one is on way different class (a higher one haha!). My husband always says my face is scented everytime I'm using this one. It's not realistic to someone face to smell this good, like I'm using perfume on my face, however, I'm enjoying, the scent is not something that bothering me, perhaps since I like the refreshing aqua scent. If it's a perfume, the name could be Aquatic Blue or Sprites of the Ocean heehee.

Now the performance, does it work like a charm on my dry skin, it does! No complains from my cheeks whatsoever, they feel comfortable whenever I'm using it. I know my skin need hydration and I'm glad now many brands and products has comes up with the specification I need, hopefully many products in Indonesia will also comes to this idea where water based or perhaps mostly water based moisturizers emerges.

-*-





Overall?

A wonderful moisturizer for normal combination skin that smells ultra good, works wonders and have a cute gel texture hard to resist which make the skin happy with it's dewy gel moist effect.

Too Faced Melted


Hello lovelies,

after a while having these babies, I finally remembered, I never post them on my blog. It's like my favorite liquid lipstick, not because they are waterproof or supper matte, but they are literally the definition of liquid lipstick. Like a lipstick being melted and here it is.

-*-




I happen to have two of them, Candy and Berry. Candy is their lightest shade between the two I own and Berry is deeper in red. The product comes in a tube and as usual, as typical as any Too Faced products, they come in a seems like simple packaging but the details is super pretty.

The matt-ness of the packaging made it looks soft and delicate. the color of the container is exactly what's inside, it portrays the liquid beautifully. The brand name and gold lining is gorgeous, looks luxurious.

-*-



Get the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss in one long-wear formula. Using exclusive technology to keep cauldrons of molten lipsticks liquid and creamy, Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, high-impact, super rich, saturated color that lasts for hours.


More To Love:


  • Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino had never seen lipstick more beautiful, intense, rich and glossy than when it’s in its melted form in the cosmetic labs. With this inspiration, we created a lipstick liquified so it doesn’t lose its pigment or shine while keeping a comfortable, flexible and cushiony wear.
  • Provides high-impact, super rich, saturated pigment in a long-wear formula.
  • Precision tip applicator to allow for a clean, effortless application each time (no liner needed!)
  • Vegan-Friendly

Look at the ingredients, this is perhaps the first lipstick I have with castor seed oil as the main ingredient.

The sponge is like shown above, but it should be white when it's new and unused, then the redness comes from the liquid inside. We then apply the liquid onto the lips using the soft cushion applicator.

-*-


Candy appears as pink fuchsia and Berry is like ... berries :D and they both have similar scent, fresh berries. The color comes from the tube is true to its pigment. Smooth, sultry, and like a liquid lipstick where you melt a piece of lipstick and use it. It's so vivid and fun to be used.

I love their colors and wish I have them all, it's not transfer-proof but the pigment is all there and easily layered over when it's needed.

-*-



Above is Candy and below is Berry. Somehow Candy is more solid than Berry, but they both buildable. I don't have to put layers on Candy thou'.

The feeling of using is pleasant, light and smooth. It's very convenient to be used all day long. Completely understood the rave about, it's not just about the color, but the pigment, coverage and feels. It's not balmy, nor waxy, not oily too, it's unique as it's silky not sticky yet not runny. The rave, the applause and craziness over Too Faced is clear, it is started from Melted.

-*-




Those who use makeup often must have really understand what are they looking for, we want a product that works like a charm and feels so cloudy light. The ingredients are vegan friendly means most of it are plan based with no cruelty nor animal parts inside. It's something that could means good and better plus safer ingredients for us to use on our skin.

Lips are a part that sometime we accidentally licked or when use any products meals passing through them, so we do have to look at the ingredients that will not harm our health. This one is one step closer to our goal.

-*-




Without being touched or wiped or accidentally swipe, the product and color will stay, stay put and stay colorful as when it is just applied. When eating, drinking or perhaps touched something oily will for sure be removed, slowly but sure. So cleansing wise, use a lip makeup remover that mostly contained oils in almost every brand available.

-*-




Last but not least, my conclusion,

definitely worth buying and collecting.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea


Hello lovelies,

this is a new product from The Body Shop not to be missed. Since around July in Singapore, I saw them and I was like, what's that? They look so good!! And finally they are here!! It's the first scalp scrub from The Body Shop.

-*-



The intimate event is only available for a few bloggers and media, since it was held in a salon, we have to come early, like the minute the mall is opened, 10 AM. Arriving there without doing my hair is a fun thing to do since I can get ready faster, my hair is I think, the longer routine, from shampooing, conditioning, to drying and hair styling usually took me 30 minutes more than just body shower and makeup. So I happily accepted their invitation and within minutes, my hair is washed using the new product that cleans the scalp and hair thoroughly and conditioned with the new conditioner, plus getting them dried and naturally styled by the friendly Japanese stylist. My hair looks so good and the scalp felt so fresh.

-*-


To those who doesn't know, sea salt has been used to treat problems on the scalp caused by over stimulating oil glands, in short, greasy scalp. To those who see their hair is limp, no love live, and oily scalp within the same day they wash their hair, is definitely fell into the category. I am fully included, my scalp is like an oily surface that never runs down on the oils. I have to wash my hair every 24-36 hours to look like I have showers and decently clean.

You do know that oily hair makes people looks somehow more tired than they actually is?!

After reading the press release from The Body Shop about the whole new products and prices too. It is important to know how to use it as to keep it good and optimal. As it is salt, I put them outside the bathroom where it is not too humid and airy, the product need to be kept in a dry place. The salt easily melts with water and you wont feel like getting tough love or hard scrub, it's more like a good scrub that cleanse and yes, purify. Those who suffer hair loss due to scalp blockage with sebum, silicone, to grease or buildup products could happily use the scrub and see the result. Use it around 2-3 times a week and within a month or two, the new hair usually comes and visible.

I just found out not long ago, that the main cause of hair loss or problems with hair growth is on the scalp itself, if it's too dirty, or too many silicone (so always avoid silicone on shampoos), hair stylings products, etc, the scalp could not perform in letting new hair grow. Conditioner or hair mask should never touches the scalp as they contained silicone and a lot of softening agents and moisturizing that is good for the hair, not scalp.

A good nourishment or if you happen to use a hair tonic, and the scalp is blocked, it is useless. Get them thoroughly cleaned up first and notice the differences.

-*-


I've tried the scrub and the conditioner. For me , the conditioner could be a bit heavier, perhaps since my hair is too dry, I need a mask so it can become smooth, perhaps I'll wait for the Banana :D

The series of Banana was made for dry hair.

-*-


In the end, I think product should be made according to scalp and hair, not just the hair, so the Fuji Green Tea series is perfect for oily scalp and dry hair. If you happen to have combination condition like mine, oily scalp and super dry hair, I use the shampoo for oily scalp and conditioner or mask for my dry hair.

-*-


The smell of Fuji Green Tea is amazingly refreshing and clean. Like a clean fresh menthol and a touch of green tea. The scent doesn't really last long, but the fresh feeling does. Those who happen to have very active glands or perhaps thinks a lot during the day and making their brain felt so hot, use it at the end of the day and feel the immediate effect of relaxation, cooling, soothing and best of all, fresh clean feeling like no other. Your scalp feels so good like they can breathe again while the hair will be so lightweight.

-*-



Always stir the thick creamy and luscious scrub before using as the salt crystals usually goes to the bottom. Lift them up and give a good stir, use a scoop according to the scalp size (> <) haha! Just use when you think is enough, 1-2 times trial and error and you should know the appropriate amount of your scalp...plus hair.

I often put it on my dry scalp since I put the product outside my shower room, and it is easier to scoop it out using a clean spoon from the kitchen and I usually avoid using metal spoon.

When I entered the shower, I let some water rinse the head and easily massage the scrub on the scalp, they felt so goooood. Gradually, they melted, as the origin of salt itself that melt upon touching water and the product go through the hair and deep cleanse every hair strand too. Making them squeaky clean too.

I happily use any mask I have on to the hair (avoiding the scalp at all cost) and together, they make my hair shine and airy.

-*-

As I'm looking forward to their banana shampoo, I enthusiastically recommend anyone with oily scalp to try the scrub at least once. It works wonders!!!

Thank you The Body Shop Indonesia

Velashape III at Oya Clinic

Hello lovelies,

 a week ago, I went to Oya Clinic and get myself one of their most famous treatment, Velashape III.

-*-


Duration: 2 hoursVelashape III is a treatment for body shaping that helps reduce cellulite, burn fat and tighten skin. The method combines radio frequency energy and infrared light to provide heat up to 42C in the body's fatty tissue. Vacuum suction and mechanical rollers serve to help the removal of toxins through the lymphatic system.
Velashape III method is progressive so that it can provide permanent results if done 3-4 times. Velashape III is the most advanced technology available in Indonesia. OYA Clinics is the only clinic to provide this treatment.

-*-




I arrived at the clinic around 11 am and ready for my treatment. The clinic is located at PIK area and it's the second brand from the one at Menteng. Everything is dressed in white and the layout is luxurious.

-*-



First, I have to change into their wardrobe, alongside with the provided disposable panty and bra. Since the treated area is belly, and there's cream involved, the bra and panties surely get bits of it.

The therapist will clean everything as well after, but still, it is best that everything is kept as clean as it is as most customer will have another activities later on.

-*-



Above is the machine, Velashape III. It looks pretty and detailed.

As I am ready, the therapist measure my belly in cm before the treatment and later after on. I felt a bit nervous as I have low tolerance about pain, but she assured me she will make sure there are minimum involved as the machine do suck and gave heat (as it helps melts the fat).

-*-

This is what it's look like, on top it kinda like an iron but inside there's some metal roller. The wand sucked the skin and the roller seems to be helps breaking the fat. There's heat but very much comfortable.

-*-


They don't put Oya's special cream, just some lotion to help the roller to rolls better (I guest), and the feeling of overall treatment is comfortable. I felt very much happy about it. On some areas like near the bones, there's a bit more pressure and slightly painful, however, on areas like belly where there's many fat :D it was really good. Like I'm getting a good workout without doing anything.

At first, I thought it was just warm, but when I get up and move to my back, the belly touches the skin on my hands and it felt hot, the surface felt hot without any pain.

-*-




Continue to the back side, so the treatment went all over the belly, waist and back of the belly, so it's mid part all over. This is the part where I think to be less comfortable than the front, since perhaps it has less fat.

I was also told that the effect would be days. The heat itself last a day and the tightening and firming is continuing. I love this kind of treatment and wish I can have some more, 3 or 4 of these treatments for permanent effects. Each treatment cost around Rp. 2.500.000 and there's a 10% discount at the moment.

-*-



I lost around 3 cm that day and felt really good. Like perhaps I just did some sit ups and mid body workout. Plus some sauna and steams for the extra heat, massages done for firming and so on, so it's pretty much hours of exercise and treatments in one. 2 hours went by so quick and I'm happy about the treatment, I recommend anyone who have problems with cellulite, fats and firming to try the treatment at least once.

Thank you so much Oya Clinic, hope to see you again soon.

Breast Cancer Myths Buster


Hello lovelies,

last week I went to an event invited by Beautynesia and Starbucks to share an important messages on Breast Cancer.

As we all perhaps know, October is all about breast cancer awareness, so many brands and even Starbucks participate to help distribute the news and share some necessary information. Start from spreading the news on breast cancer, be aware of the matter.

-*-




Start from how detect breast cancer from the early signs to how to do the self check. I have feature a lot of the detailed information on my instagram stories during the day of the event.

Do googled up for how to by following #PinkVoice on their social medias such as facebook and instagram. There are a few method but all involved doing it once a month, knowing and figuring out your own breast by the shape and everything in it. From the firmness to the nipples.

-*-


Meanwhile, Starbucks helps by selling special drinks that will eventually be donated to Love Pink. Here are the details:

-*-



The first drink that I ordered is Pink Blossom Frappuccino, since I was lactose intolerant, the staff gladly offered me soy milk in return.

The drink was made in a jiffy and looks super cute.

-*-


The drink is super sweet, too sweet to my taste but refreshing. It's something that perhaps not a Starbucks signature aside from their green tea matcha but it's something that everyone can enjoy. No coffee involved.

-*-


Here are more details on the event and products:
Supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Starbucks Indonesia is partnering with Lovepink Indonesia to launch #PINKVOICE, a campaign encouraging everbody to raise their voices on breast cancer awareness. Throughout October, we offer special handcrafted pink beverages and we will also donate 10% from the sales to Lovepink Indonesia for every pink beverage purchase.

As for the beverage, we highlight 4 new creations in relations to support the theme.

    Pink Macchiato
    a freshly steamed milk with vanilla and raspberry flavored syrup marked with espresso giving it beautiful layers of color. Can be enjoyed in hot or iced.
    Raspberry latte
    A tasty and pretty addition to your regular latte! The combination of espresso and raspberry flavored syrup goes well together creating a refreshing sip. Can be enjoyed in hot or iced.
    Pink Blossom Frappuccino
    Who can resist this beautiful beverage? The beverage is a blend of milk, raspberry, and vanilla flavored syrup topped with raspberry whipped cream giving a beautiful shade of pink.
    Pink Yoghurt Frappuccino
    This beverage tastes as good as it looks. A refreshing blended beverage that features yoghurt with a blend of raspberry and vanilla syrup.

Supporting activities throughout October regarding #PINKVOICE are Pink Talk, Pink Truck Hunt and #PINKDRINKCHALLENGE as Social Media activity.

At Pink Talk, participants can get breast cancer information from the expert about diagnosis, treatment, and other important topics.

To make it more fun and exciting, Starbucks Pink Truck will be circling the city and giving free sample of the pink drinks. Get ready to locate our Pink Truck and enjoy the pink drinks.

Through #PINKDRINKCHALLENGE we encourage our customers to join the good movement. We will give away 5 Starbucks Official Tumblers and 15 preloaded Starbucks Card for submissions with the most inspiring pictures and stories related to Breast Cancer.

How to Join :

    Snap the pink drink as creative as possible (selfie, product shot, etc)
    Write encouraging message and inspirational story related to the campaign
    Post it on Instagram
    Tag 5 friends using #PINKDRINKCHALLENGE and #PINKVOICE
    The persons who are tagged have to also follow all these steps

Let's join our good movement and be brave in raising our voices to talk about Breast Cancer awareness.

-*-



So there's two coffee drinks and 2 not. For me, Pink Macchiato is the one. The coffee is delicious, it has the right components and sweetness too.

-*-


All the bloggers have a chance to try some of the drinks, and I requested another one which is Pink Yogurt Frappuccino. A sweet and sour delight that perfect for summer time, since Jakarta is always summer, the drink is always right.

-*-


Last but not least, here is my favorite part of the event, the myths buster of breast cancer, these things doesn't cause breast cancer (or at least haven't been found medically related):
1. Using wired bra.
2. Deodorants.
3. Caffeine.
4. Getting mammogram.
5. Only women can have breast cancer.
6. Have to be hereditary.

And many others, like getting a breast implants, etc.  Do check out from www.health.com as well as we need to be calm and not overly dramatic.

Alert but not overly dramatic ^_^

-*-

Thank you so much Starbucks and Beautynesia for inviting me and for sure Love Pink for all the brightening details plus support. They also offer friendship, gatherings, and sharing one to another. Bottomline, it's a support group for breast cancer warriors and survivors.

If you happen to suspect your condition, do visit a doctor, I do happen to know one who heldcp me with my issue, Dr. Alfiah Amiruddin (a breast specialist), she is at Mitra Kemayoran and RS Tarumanegara.

Make Remake Cloud All in One Cleanser

Hello lovelies,

I'm always looking for a good cleanser, like a never ending quest, I haven't found the ultimate cleanser that does all the tricks. From removing makeup to daily debris with minimum effort. Great in texture and easy to be used. Most of them are good for cleaning makeup only, or perhaps for removing dead skin cells, or perhaps to be used in the morning or soft makeup and so on, no one has ever create that on and only holy grail cleanser.

This one is said to be a good cleanser that does the job well, or does it?

-*-



http://makeremake.lgbeautymall.com/

A unique cloud-like facial cleanser that is made of cloud technique and filled with moisture. It is a weak acidic all-in-one cleanser

"After spending a small amount of water on a coin of 500 Won for a spatula, massage on a dry face, let the makeup and waste melt out, rinse it with lukewarm water after adding a small amount of water, and then rinse with lukewarm water. You can use it as a foam pack if you put foam on your face afterwards. "

[All components] Glycerin, sodium lauroyl glutamate, phage / phage / polybutylene glycol-8/5/3 glycerin, acrylate / C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, 1,2- Lentil seed extract, rye extract, oyster seed extract, oat kernel extract, flaxseed oil, silica, xanthan gum, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, purified water, denatured alcohol, tree Sodium diatomaceous earth, fragrance


-*-



I must say, the product looks appetizing. The cloud and all, it's gooey, satisfying and oh I can play with it for hours :D even the kids are interested. It's not really a gel, nor cream, it somewhere in between with airy texture, bubbly and solid at the same time. It's a sensory experience for me haha!

I've use them for months now since I bought two, and the bundle comes with Miffy stamp. When I was in Korea during early Spring, Miffy was everywhere, several brands are raving over her, collaboration after collaboration with her on the face of some products, she is cute alright. Some die hard fans would instantly purchase everything with Miffy on it.

I'm not really after her, I'm goo ga ga over the texture.

-*-



The product comes in a jar. It was clear with a black lid. Clearly the transparent container is a way the brand confidently showing us what's inside, clouds of cleanser.

I'm not a fan of any skincare nor cleanser in a jar for hygienic reason, hopefully, this one has their own agenda.

-*-




I use around a scoopful (the scoop is provided) and put it on my palm. Later it on my continuing squeezing the airy bubbly thingy and creating foam with it.

The lather is soft and gentle, instantly I have doubts whether it can clean makeup, and I was right, they can't really do that. I have to use a makeup remover before using this one when there's makeup on. Especially hard core makeup with waterproof formula, it's tough.

The scent is soft but noticeable, it is floral and fruity too, wonderful and pleasant. I like the scent but I wish the cleanser could do a better job. Perhaps I have to massage the skin longer or create more foam before applying to the skin. But in the end, I've tried different methods and ways to make it perform better, still, it's a daily cleanser that cleans daily debris and that's all.

It was said that the product contains a lot of good ingredients like flax seed oil, oyster seed extract, oat kernel extract, but these are the ingredients that perhaps took a while before we see significant result. In the short, the skin does feels softer and not as drying as using other surfactant.

-*-

Do I recommend this product?
Yes, it still worth trying. Between the intriguing texture and aroma, it is still a good daily cleanser, especially as a morning cleanser. It cleans while giving the skin a moisturizing effects. I even let my kids using it as it's not drying, the formula is rather gentle. The product may not clean makeup so do use it for step 2 or 3 after removing makeup.
