L’occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfect Make Up Remover

L'occitane MUR

Well, sudah lama juga ya saya nggak beli produknya L’occitane. Hehehe.. Ya kali mesti nabung 2 bulan dulu kalau mau beli satu produk. Hehehe..
Jadi ceritanya kapan hari itu saya jalan-jalan ke Tunjungan Plaza sama W, then i strucked in front of L’occitane shop 🙂 Their shop always tempts me #dontblamemeyes

Then the SA (dengan mulut manisnya gitu..) explained how good their make up remover is, especially from Pivoine Sublime Collection which is the best seller one.. Pivoine Collection ini base nya dari ekstrak bunga peony yang bisa bikin kulit lebih halus, segar, rata skin tone nya dan berkilau.. Hmmm..
Siapa sih nggak pengen punya wajah keliatan seger dan glowing??

Namun, begitu tahu harganya, agak-agak mikir.. Harga segitu buat pembersih muka?? Nggg… Usually i spend max IDR 250K for facial cleansing. So, ini upgrade juga sih meski saya belum tahu efektif nggak nya. Etapi baunya enak dan this one comes in gel which i never try.

Tapi…

Tapi…

*bimbang*

Tapi lalu si SA bilang, “ini produk organik lho ka..” And my hubby tempted *LOL. Dia bilang bukannya saya tertarik dengan segala sesuatu yang berhubungan dengan organik?? Hahaha… Dan dia mencium keengganan saya karena harganya yang cukup wow itu. Akhirnya W mengeluarkan kartunya dan bilang,

“udah, sana beli..” Wkwkwkwk… *kecup sayang*

L'occitane MUR pump

—–And i got 2 sample of Pivoine Sublime Creme for free.. 🙂—–

The packaging looks bulking (I mean comparing to my Klairs) but looks pretty (in pink).
The pump helps me a lot to take the gel out.

Description:

“This refreshing gel effectively removes impurities and make-up, including waterproof make-up,
from the face, eyes and lips. Enriched with a skin-perfecting extract, its glide-on texture
reveals skin that feels incredibly clean, supple and velvety, leaving the complexion looking fresh and
more luminous.”

Packaging: 200 ml pump bottle

Price: IDR 325K

Ingredients:

L'occitane MUR ingre

My impression:
Ini yang agak tricky, awalnya si SA bilang ini lembut banget dan cocok untuk kulit sensitif sekalipun plus nggak bikin perih di mata.

Well, are you kidding me??!!! Heeeee….

The story is.. When the first time i used it.. Saya dengan pedenya langsung apply di kulit pipi (sebenernya bisa pakai kapas, maksudnya gel nya dituangin di kapas trus diusapkan ke wajah). Enak sih, ada efek dinginnya gitu. But then, saya apply lagi ke mata buat ngebersihin maskara. Guess what? It hurts my eyes so bad T_T
Perih cyiin!!!  Nylekit gitu di mata.
Saya buru-buru ngebilas muka dengan air dan perihnya tambah parah T_T.. Ya Allah, niat mau cantik kenapa harus sakit sih. Huhuhu..

Ya saya agak trauma dong mau pakai lagi.. Tapi mengingat harganya!!! *sigh*
Saya putuskan tetep lanjut. Ha!

Mau nggak mau harus puter otak, ngakalin gimana caranya supaya produknya nggak mubadzir. Akhirnya, dia nggak saya pakai jadi eye makeup/dirty remover. Saya ganti pakai coconut oil atau klairs cleansing oil untuk daerah mata dan si Pivoine Sublime ini jadi pembersih di area wajah yang lain.

Karena selain efek perih di mata itu, so far this is a great makeup remover. Kemasannya oke. FYI, saya prefer cleansing things saya tersedia dalam bentuk botol berpompa. Karena kalau nambah liquid nya (ya kali saya lagi dandan gajah mode on) gampang tinggal pencet, keluar deh. Nggak sampai mengotori si botol. –Iya, saya terlalu cerewet kalau soal kemasan.– Satu nilai plus..

Plus lainnya: Bentukannya. Gel nya bening, dingin dan wanginya soft (di hidung saya sih). So, bisa jadi stress relieved after work. And the important thing is.. It very good to remove all dirty things from your face before you go to the bed. Look at this..

How it works mark

I put: Pixy Lip Cream, Covergirls Outlast Foundation, Mizzu eyeshadows..

After all, beside the drama, L’occitane Pivoine Sublime Make Up Remover is a good cleanser. You can give it a chance. Mungkin kalian berjodoh #eh

But if you asked me, No I will not repurchase. I have a better option tough 🙂

So, what’s your favourite cleanser product guys?

3. Whamisa Organic Flower Toner in Original

>> Well, i tried to go ‘7 skin method’ train because it looks my U part face lil bit dehydrated. And the product that hype enough is Whamisa Organic Flower Toner.
And i failed!!! Bwahahaha..
I stop just in ‘2 skin method’ cause you know it took times. I always had morning hectic.
So you know lah… But just 2 layers are enough to make my skin feels moist and (in my thought) hydrate.

And if you realize i just buy Whamisa in share type not in full size since it cost lil bit more money than my regular toner and i didn’t know whether my skin can adjust the toner or not. I mean, what if i already bought the full size one and then it makes break out lah, purging lah. How sad i am???  Hehehehe.. <<

4. Manyo Galactomyces Niacin Special Treatment
What is it?
“Galactomyces Niacin is a liquid formula containing a pure concentration of 97% niacinamide (B3) that helps your skin’s uppermost layers appear renewed, clarified, and more even. Niacinamide also reduces enlarged, congested pores. But that’s not all: This booster also improves stubborn signs of aging such as dull, uneven skin tone, helps hasten the fading of post-breakout marks, and minimizes the appearance of skin discolorations and wrinkles. And it does this while also helping to preserve skin’s critical moisture barrier for a more supple feel and healthier look.
See what we mean by multi-tasking?
As impressive as niacinamide is on its own, at Manyo Factory we know the research has made it abundantly clear that skin always needs more than one specialized ingredient. So, Galactomyces Niacin Special Treatment Essence also contains skin-enhancing vitamin C, ultra-light moisturizing ingredients and antioxidants to help improve skin texture, hydration, and help skin defend its surface from free-radical damage that, left unchecked, can lead to further signs of aging.”

Ingredients: (from us.memebox)
Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Niacinamide, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract,
Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract,
Hyaluronic Acid

>> For this one i also bought in “share type” size. Cause you know, i still have the cosrx one but the devil in my heart said to try manyo. So, here is it..

The consistency lil bit thicker than Cosrx Galactomyces but don’t worry it will absorb quickly into your skin. There is no significant smell. But, unfortunately my skin didn’t give any reaction. Ha!
No break outs yet no wonderful thingy happened. Yes, maybe because i just try in very limited period. But compared to the other one, this product do nothing.
So no! I will not continue to use it.<<

>> I am a person who easily persuaded when it comes to everything that make my pore looks smaller.
Hahahaha.. So of course i bought this serum to prove if their claims are true??
I just put the liquid on my T-Zone. It lil bit thicker than Galactomyces Serum and really time to absorb into my skin. That’s why they require 20 minutes to wait until completely blend with your skin.
While my pores doesn’t really shrinking –because i realize now, i have facial hair that grow from my big pores! Hehehehe… I don’t have a plane to get rid those hair so now i okay– It control my sebum better than anything! Hurray!!! That’s why i love this product.<<

>> In my mind, gel is transparent liquid that thicker than water. So, i lil bit surprised with the  texture –called me udik yes??–
It’s like a cream, a light cream which very easy to apply. I can use it in my hectic morning without fuse. Just this moisturizer and MiCa Foundation Powder, i’m ready to go out..

a little thing called happiness

Pas lagi browsing blog sendiri (iyeee..) baru sadar sudah berapa bulan purnama yak diri ini terjembab dalam kemalasan ngeposting sesuatu? Hahaha…

Bukannya malas atau nggak punya bahasan sih.. Sebenernya banyak banget, cuma ya itu kalau mau review produk, saya lagi gampang ganti merek (hehehe.. tergantung racun) dan kalau pengen curhat jatuhnya malah jadi negatif. Yup, setelah “kejadian” itu bawaan diri negatif mulu. Mau nulis cerita dapetnya malah cerita sedih, penuh amarah dan sengsara. Belum lagi temperamen yang jadi gampang curigaan, iri, ngeluh tentang hal-hal  yang sebenernya nggak penting-penting amat. Gampang sensian. Wuaaaat!!!!!

Iyes, negatif banget ya saya 😦    Apa mungkin juga terpengaruh dari hasil test pack yang (masih) selalu negatif. LOL..

Pada akhirnya saya dalam taraf kehidupan: LELAH. Bukan lelah hidup trus pengen suicide. Bukaaaan. Alhamdulillah nya, meski sempat didera kekalutan hidup yang luar biasa, saya nggak ada perasaan pengen mati atau gimana. Mungkin karena saya sadar masih banyak produk skincare yang belum dicoba #eh

Saya sadar bahwa Allah ngasih hadiah yang jauh lebih besar daripada masalah saya.

One of them is a little thing 🙂 Yes, makhluk kecil. Si bayik.. Aini, atau AIN.

Ain

Dia bukan anak saya sih (meski sebenernya ngarep banget. Heee). She is my niece from my paternal cousin. Kebetulan tinggalnya di sebelah rumah orang tua saya. Dulu waktu awal pindah, si Ain ini belum lahir. Dan anak pertamanya si mba itu cowok yang udah lumayan gedhe. FYI, entah kenapa saya lebih sering gampang jatuh cinta sama bayi cewek. So, begitu dia lahir, langsung deh jadi kesayangan nggak cuma saya tapi serumah
(plus adek, orang tua).

Dari umur beberapa hari sampai di usia sembilan bulan, hampir tiap hari dia pasti main ke rumah. Entah untuk digendong, dikudang (aduh, bahasa Indonesianya apa ya?), disuapin sampai dibully. Wkwkwk.. Maksudnya, saya sama si Koci-koci seneng banget ngedandanin dia pake bandana, pita trus difoto. Padahal si Ain suka sebel dipakain bando. Hahahaha..

Dan ternyata kehadiran dia bikin negatitivity saya berkurang banyak lho.. Malah mungkin uda abis. Amiin. Hehehe…
Saya lebih sering happy dan ketawa (as should be..). Hidup saya lebih banyak ngurusin Ain dan kehidupan saya sendiri (bukan lagi si…    Heee).

Ya mungkin bener ya kata orang, bahwa punya bayi itu selain bikin capek (well countless sleepless nights, gerak sana sini..) tapi sebenernya  lebih banyak senengnya sih. Ya kali saya nggak ikutan kekurangan bobok karena menyusui *rolling eyes*

Saya bersyukur banget Allah ngasih kebahagiaan “kecil” lewat si Ain. She bring back my old self *joget joget*    Yah semoga bisa segera diberi Ain sendiri sama Allah yes?? Amiiin..

Dan sekarang, saya suka buru-buru pulang biar bisa main sama Ain sebelum dia bobok. Emak-emak banget yaaaa.. Hehehe..

Ain n Me

PS: wait for my bunch of products review ^_^

a joyful and cheerful me,

Don’t try to turn a woman into a monster

cute-monster

taken from Pinterest

Hello 2017!!!

I don’t know whether this post is appropriate. LOL.. But somehow i know i should share. Decided to write about it after watched Chinese drama Empress in the Palace and experienced it myself. Hehehe…

One story of the drama told about Empress Yixiu as the main empress of Yongzheng Emperor. When she got pregnant, the emperor ordered her sister, Chunyuan to accompanied Yixiu. Seeing Chunyuan’s beauty, Yongzheng fell in love and decided to marry her and made her as second Empress. Some times later,Chunyuan got pregnant and unfortunately Yixiu’s one year old son died. Yixiu then felt heartbroken since the emperor didn’t seem care when her son fell ill because he was too enamored with his new empress.
So it looks like Yixiu lost everything, husband and son. Added salt to her wounded, all it caused by Yongzheng’s feeling to her sister. So, you can imagine how hurt her heart. Since then, she took revenge one by one.. By (oh, it was the terrible things) killed his then favorite concubines and many royal offspring. And when the emperor knew all her doings, of course he got mad especially when he realized Yixiu was the one who killed Chunyuan. He asked why she did that when the one who should be hated was his not Chunyuan. And with tearful face she answered it’s just because she is the one who truly loves him and questioning which woman can bear watch her beloved husband marry another woman
and having children with her? A statement which gave him a disbelief looks (and gave me a “HAH! moment”). Nevertheless, in the end Yongzheng doesn’t want to see her as long as he live even though she still got the empress title.

*take a long sigh*

What can i learn from them?

Yes i know she did many terrible things, but it doesn’t means Yongzheng is an innocent man. No, even i feel he is the most bitch in that drama. Hahahaha… She slowly become a monster because she can’t take the heartache that happened. It caused by his husband’s act who easily  fall in love with another woman and then marry her and the having a baby with her.. All done while the main wife is neglected and abandoned. Not to count how her son died because his father never seem cared when the toddler got sick. Poor family..

So yes, a monster can grow from just an ordinary woman if she experience a terrible thing, you called a husband betrayal.. Can you imagine someone who accompany your for some times, someone who share love, burden, laugh and tears. Suddenly he turn back, having “some fun” (regardless what its form) with other woman while there aren’t problem occurs in your marriage. That means your world is suddenly ruined too..

And poor me, as happened in Empress Yixiu, i never realize i can be a monster. Although it’s just in my mind. But never.. It never happened in my life before when i surely want someone to die, like to be burnt alive (T_T). And want her to be humiliated like what she did to me. Gosh, how bad am i? Yes, those accident turned me to be a someone who i couldn’t recognize.

And it just because a bastard man and a bitchy childish woman.

And unfortunately (LOL) according to my tradition (and religion) I couldn’t do revenges properly like Yixiu did. hahahaha… Not that i was as bad as her. But still how can you just sit and let those  things happened in front of your eyes.

Hahahaha..

Yes while i’m nearly going insane, But those monster didn’t come to live and ruined their life like they did. Unfortunately. Heeeee..

Well, the story telling is done. LOL. And what i want to tell ya is please, don’t make a woman turn into a monster guys.
Whether you are girl, woman, childish or mature. Please respect the wife’s right. Please take a look at your behavior around men especially a married man.

>> Don’t you ever go out with him, just you and him! Include, eating together, watching movie, go home and the list will continue. LOL..
>> Speak politely and don’t lenjeh, ngggg i can’t find a similar word in english. LOL.
>> Do not sharing your personal or office problem with him.
>> Do not borrow his money too. Borrow or ask? Hahaha

Oh Gosh, can you just find a friend in a single man? Because if you do those things with a married man. It just a nightmare.. Why?
Because you will not know what will his wife feel?
Because you will not know what will your relationship turn to be. Who knows friendship will be intimate relationship? With a married man. Are you sure?

And if you defend your acts by saying is just because of love. LOL!!! Love or lust? Just think! What if the another woman is coming into your dad and mom marriage? What will you feel??

So think about it again. And if the bitchy one is the one like the emperor and … (hahaha…),
please remember, you will hurt your “sister” just like you will hurt your mom or your own sister or your best friend.

You have a right to refuse his efforts. With any kind of rejections. If he still insist, can you just slap him and report his wrongdoings as a sexual harassment? Because it is. I mean do anything.

Except you enjoy it. You enjoy any kind of that attention, it is you that should be slapped. LOL..

So girls, please don’t turn us to be a monster.

xoxo,

My Latest Daily Regime (Dec 16)

Hello gengs….

Udah bulan Desember aja nih, perasaan waktu cepet banget ya berjalannya. Pfiuh..

Not that i’m changing fast too. Terutama di urusan perawatan jasmani alias skincare. Hehehe…

Masih inget kan, waktu awal tahun ini saya bertekad banget untuk beralih ke natural skincare products  ya etapi belakangan niat saya nggak sebesar dulu. I will admit, the natural one is very great products cuma butuh ketelatenan yang lebih aja untuk dapat hasil yang diinginkan. Nah, karena alasan itu plus karena “kejadian yang tidak diinginkan itu”, akhirnya saya selingkuh deh *rolling eyes*

Saya CLBK dengan mantan kosmetik Korea dengan beli produk-produk yang dari dulu emang pengen banget dibeli tapi nggak jadi karena lebih milih yang natural. It consists many acid treatments karena mengandung manfaat “menata” kulit dari kerusakan akibat sinar matahari dan memicu pembentukan kolagen kulit secara alami. Yes, i need something to make my skin smoother.

Say hello to these babies..

daily-2

Eniwei postingan ini nggak bakal ada review lengkapnya ya.. Cuma sekedar kesan dan pesan singkat. tssah…

1. Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil
>> Pertama kali pakai cleansing oil yang beli di luaran. Biasanya saya bikin sendiri dari
coconut oil. Tapi bahan-bahan nya lagi abis dan males ngeracik. Jadilah beli produk jadi aja.

Milih Klairs karena udah teracuni sama mba Eunice dari Wishtrend. Plus ingredientsnya juga dari beberapa vegetable oil yang Insya Allah nggak bikin iritasi. So far, produknya oke banget buat ngebersihin wajah. Foundie, maskara dan kotoran-kotorannya melting gitu, trus makainya gampang. Tinggal di apply ke seluruh wajah (yes, ke mata bisa kok buat nglumerin maskara dkk) di pijat-pijat biar meresap, basuh pakai air sampai residunya hilang. Voila, make up bersih dan nggak bikin kulit kering.

Saya suka banget sama cleansing oil ini. Hampir tiap hari dipake pas malam meski nggak lagi ber make up ala-ala. Soal harga nggak bisa dibilang murce sih, tapi worth it lah.
Ini udah masuk pemakaian bulan ke lima dan masih belum menunjukkan tanda-tanda mau habis.

2. Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap
>> Belinya paketan sama Cleansing Oil. Bentuknya batangan, dengan ada kotak-kotak kecil kayak cokelat silverqueen gitu.

Cara pakai: tinggal di gosok pakai air sampai jin busa nya keluar lalu si busa di
apply di wajah dengan gerakan memutar ke atas. Pijat-pijat sedikit. Bilas. Jangan sampai kena mata  ya soapnya. Perih cyiin.

What impressed me is wajah keliatan bersih dan segar setelah cuci muka meski ada efek sedikit tight but it never bother me. Dan karena saya pelit irit, sabunnya saya potong kecil-kecil sesuai kotak partisi yang ada. Ada 6 kotak. Nah sebulan biasanya habis 1 kotak kecil, jadi kira-kira 1 sabun bisa buat setengah tahun. Bwuahahaha..

3. Cosrx Good Morning Low PH Cleanser
>> My latest additions. Awalnya cuma beli sharing bottle aja, eee ternyata enak. Teksturnya gel, tapi bisa menghasilkan busa yang cukup banyak. Berbeda dengan charcoal soap di atas, hasil akhirnya nggak bikin kesat jadi kulit wajah tetap terasa lembut. Meski begitu, tetep efektif kok ngebersihin kotoran dan sisa cleansing oil.
Jadi makainya gantian aja sama charcoal soap. Tergantung sama mood, lagi mau sama yang mana. Hehehe..

4. Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner
>> Setelah nyobain bha liquid powder dan terkesan banget dengan produk Cosrx jadi pengen nambah toner ini *latah*

Teksturnya cair banget jadi gampang meresap di kulit. Dan karena kandungan AHA dan BHA nya cuma 0.1% jadi nggak terlalu mengeksfoliasi kulit so nggak terlalu menyengat di kulit kita juga.

All i can say.. It’s a perfect toner for me. Membersihkan kulit dan pori-pori khususnya,
menyegarkan dan mengurangi sebum berlebihan di daerah T. Bravo!!!

5. Cosrx BHA Blackead Power Liquid
>> Well, i need something to make my skin smoother. Dan ini jawabannya.. Nah ini BHA nya agak gede. Hah? BHA? Apa itu BHA?

Nah, Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) atau Salicylic Acid adalah senyawa kimia yang digunakan
pada produk kecantikan untuk membantu mengangkat sel-sel kulit mati atau eksfoliasi sehingga bisa memperbaiki tekstur dan warna kulit.

Oke, saya mau bercerita sedikit.
Sebenarnya secara alami, sel-sel kulit kita akan memperbarui diri sendiri setiap (kurleb) 28 hari, namun karena seiring bertambahnya umur dan gaya hidup yang serampangan itu, proses nya jadi melambat.
Jadi sel yang belum selesai diperbarui di tumpuk sel kulit mati yang baru. So, munculnya yang namanya komedo, jerawat dan blackhead yang nggak berkesudahan.
Ada beberapa macam eksfolian, mau yang manual pakai sikat wajah (iyah wajah, bukan sikat buat nyuci), atau scrub atau zat kimia contohnya kosmetik yang mengandung BHA dan AHA (alpha hydroxy acids). Menurut penelitan, karena AHA dan BHA bekerja dengan menggunakan proses kimiawi, mereka dapat lebih meresap ke dalam kulit dan memberikan hasil yang lebih baik dibanding dengan scrub, yang cuma bisa bekerja pada permukaan luar kulit saja. Tapi, si AHA dan BHA tersebut nggak akan meng-exfoliate kulit kita terlalu banyak kok. Mereka cuma mengangkat sel-sel pada permukaan kulit yang sudah mati
atau rusak dan nggak akan mengangkat sel kulit yang sehat. Makanya kulit kita akan keliatan smooth, sehat dan warna kulit jadi lebih merata.
Perbedaan antara AHA dan BHA adalah kalo AHA dapat larut dalam air, sementara si BHA larutnya dalam minyak. Singkatnya AHA cocok untuk kalian yang berkulit kering, BHA lebih cocok untuk orang yang kayak eikeh. Pabrik minyak. Hohohoho…
Cuma, sebaiknya pemakaian nya nggak setiap hari. Bahkan di websitenya cosrx, hanya disarankan 3x seminggu. Jadi ya selang seling. Hari ini makai, besok nggak. Lagian kalau tiap hari dibubuhkan,nggak kebayang aja rasanya. Agak nylekit-nylekit gengs.. Tapi worth to the max..

Kulit wajah saya semakin mulus, komedo berkurang banyak dan pori-pori terlihat sedikiiit mengecil. I love this.

6. Skin&Lab Vita Energy Toner
>> Toner yang saya pakai sebelum cosrx. Sebenernya masih ada sih isinya. Tapi karena saya kadung ngidam Cosrx, yang ini saya agak saya singkirkan. Hehehe.. Duh, maaf yaa…

Padahal bukan karena toner ini nggak berfungsi dengan seharusnya, toner ini keren kok. Dia menyegarkan dan melembapkan. Nah lho.. Trus karena mengandung banyak vitamin pula toner ini menutrisi kulit dengan maksimal. Plus dia bisa dipakai sebagai facial mist. Jadi kalau lagi merasa wajah suram, tinggal semprot pakai ini. Fresh lagi.

7. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum
>> Vitamin C Serum berguna sekali untuk mencerahkan kulit, mengurangi bintik-bintik hitam serta memperbarui dan menutrisi sel kulit. Jelas, saya butuh dong fungsi semacam ini untuk kulit. So yes,i added into my daily regime.

Etapi sebelumnya saya pakai C21,5 dan meski serumnya amazing tapi gampang banget teroksidasi T_T Kalau sudah teroksidasi begitu biasanya efeknya nggak cling lagi. Makanya saya nggak repurchase, saya ganti ke Klairs ini akibat kemakan racunnya si Eunice dari Wishtrend. Ya nasib sebagai cewek yang gampangan (kena “racun”).. Hehehe

Klairs ini manfaatnya hampir sama dengan serum vitamin C yang lama (melembabkan dan mengurangi dark spot) tapi nggak ada efek nylekit di kulit kayak C21,5.

Cuma, kadang-kadang aja ada sedikit sensasi hot ketika pengaplikasian meski nggak sering. Saya kurang tahu penyebabnya dan agak males nyari (hehehehe) toh nggak bikin kulit terbakar or something dangerous. Hahaha.. Okay, jangan ditiru. Nantilah kalau
ada waktu saya bakal nyari tahu. ^_^

Dengan harga yang lebih mahal, dia menang di masa oksidasi yang agak lebih lama dibanding C21,5. Tapi saya sih belum mau repurchase. Masih pengen Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum *evil laugh*

8. Skin Aqua UV Whitening Milk
>> Biasanya saya nggak terlalu merasa wajib pakai sunblock dalam bentuk terpisah. Karena sudah merasa terpenuhi dari BB Cream atau bedak. Heee… Namun, waktu memutuskan akan pakai produk mengandung AHA/BHA, ternyata wajib pakai sunblock untuk keseharian plus perlu di apply ulang tiap 3jam sekali. Wuakks!!!
Yes, karena AHA/BHA termasuk bahan eksfoliasi alias pengelupas sel kulit mati, naturally kulit  kita bakal lebih sensitif kena sinar matahari *sigh*

Mulailah saya bergerilya mencari produk yang oke. Dulu sebelum “mengkonsumsi” produk natural,saya pernah pakai sunblock merek wardah tapi nggak cocok. Bikin minyak di kulit semakin liar. Hehe..

Pas lagi berkeliaran di hypermart nemu skinaqua, beli, dicoba. Voila.. Lebih match sama eikeh. Cepat meresap dan nggak oily banget. Padahal bukan varian untuk kulit berminyak juga. Plus, harganya affordable. Yippi!!!!

9. C20 Vitamin Sleep 9 to 5 Crema
>> Karena saya agak serakah, waktu beli C21,5 Vit C Serum saya juga sekalian ngambil krimnya. Menurut websitenya duo ini mampu bekerja secara berkesinambungan *alah* untuk mempercantik kulit wajah kita. So’ lah.. Saya beli. Dan ternyata… Saya sukaaa…

Teksturnya lumayan creamy (maksudnya buat pabrik minyak kayak saya), jadi emang bener kalau cocoknya dipakai di malam hari. Pakai yang agak banyakan. Hehehe… Besok paginya… Wuaaa..

Kulit terlihat kenyal dan smoother by the day. Dark spot juga perlahan berkurang.

10. Kiehl’s Earth Pore Cleansing Masque
>> Sisa dari acara program LUCYS nya Kiehl’s kapan hari. Selain awet, desye bagus banget untuk membersihkan pori-pori dan skin tightening.

11. Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Mask
>> Sleeping pack bukan termasuk produk wajib saya sehari-hari. Cukuplah wash off mask memenuhi penambahan nutrisi kulit. Tapi punya cosrx ini tempted banget buat dicoba. Dan yes, it do what it said.
It help my skin brighter, healthy and looks radiant. Lagipula ini tri in wan produk lhoo..
Bisa dipake buat masker bobok sleeping mask, masker bilas atau pun krim moisturizer biasa. Cuma saya nggak nyobain fungsi terakhir, secara mengandung efek lengket di kulit. Bisa mengacaukan make up ini. So NO NO for daily cream.

12. Tathata Aloe Vera & Rosemary Lotion
>> Satu dari sedikit natural skincare yang masih saya pakai. It helps reducing my sebum. Tapi makainya pas kalo di rumah aja, nggak lagi pengen kemana-mana. Karena ternyata lotion ini nggak cocok dipakai bebarengan sama bedak mineral botanica eikeh T_T

13. Random Mask Sheet
>> Saya jarang sih pakai masker kertas ini.. Secara kalau dari segi ekonomis, amat sangat nggak hemat. Hahaha.. Ya kali produk seharga 20 sampai 45 ribu dipakai cuma sekali dan dibuang. Inget duit di atm lah.. Huhuhu.. Makanya makainya juga jarang-jarang, paling sebulan sekali. Ato kalo lagi ada undangan kewongan, sebelum ber makeup ria saya maskeran dulu biar muka lebih cling dan hasil make up lebih tahan lama.

14. Tathata Roll On Firming Eye Serum
>> Produk yang saya beli bebarengan sama Aloe Vera & Rosemary Lotion. Saya suka produk perawatan mata yang model beginian, ROLL ON. Cukup dioles sambil dipijat pake kemasannya. Nggak perlu pake tangan, ya kali takut aja kecolok. Hahaha…

Can’t say much about this one. Karena saya akui, sleeping habit saya buruk. Suka bangun dini hari kemudian nggak bisa tidur lagi. Alhasil, mata panda saya..???? Ya begitulah.. Tapi ini lumayan mereduce kok. Bolehlah dicoba..

So, that’s all. Nanti kalau saya merevisi produk yang lagi dipakai (so pasti laah.. :-p), saya
bakalan update kok..

Brief Dinner at Bumi Surabaya Hotel

Hola.. Hello.. Hai.. Hi..

It’s very a loong time since i visit this blog and post something. Iyes, ketiadaan laptop (laptop guweh mati total, nggak bisa diperbaiki T_T) dan personal matters bikin saya enggan menengok TBN ini.
Actually, saya sempet juga kok memposting sesuatu di blog ini bulan kemarin, cuma karena merasa kurang appropriate aja, tulisannya saya delete. Hehehe.. Maklum lah kadar galaunya lagi meningkat.

So demi mengatasi rasa insecure dan patah hati yang amat sangat (WHAT??!!!) i decided to have some fun for my self. Salah satunya menerima ajakan teman kantor untuk menemaninya ke sebuah media gathering.

Yes, i’m working in  media. But since my job is behind the desk, ya intinya saya kayak pekerja kantoran lainnya yang lebih banyak ngendon di kantor. Beda dengan teman seperpabrikan yang bertitel reporter atau marketing, mereka lebih sering jalan-jalan dan ketemu banyak orang (merasa terkungkung. Heee) So’lah.. kita berangkat.

Kemarin malam, mba manda (superpisi gedung kantor plus mantan reporter majalah eikeh plus food blogger ternama di Surabaya) menculik saya untuk datang ke Media gathering yg diselenggarakan oleh hotel Bumi Surabaya. Kalo nggak salah untuk meperkenalkan marketing baru dan press release acara New Year Eve nya.

Quiet exciting.. Bisa nanya-nanya (macak reporter gitu..) dan makan-makan. Wkwkwkwk..

Marilah kita membahas makanannya saja yoo..

Kita bisa memilih makanan dari berbagai macam restoran: Kizahashi, Arumanis dan Angkringannya. All you can eat lah.

Apa aja yang saya ambil?

Salad sayur yg lupa ke foto.. Jagung rebus, wakame dan timun yg dicocol thousand island (sebodo amat  deh, ambil saus yang banyak aja, karena jagung dan mayo itu ditakdirkan untuk bersatu. Hehehe)
main-course-hyatt
Main course: chicken tempura, beef tepanyaki dan kwetiau.. Beef nya agak alot sih, kurang tender.

fish-wellington
Fish wellington. Dori dan wakame nya enak apalagi dicocol pake gravy sauce tapi nggak matching sama kulit pastry nya..

sashimi-hyatt

First time tasted salmon sashimi!!! (iyes, guweh katrok.. kurang kejepang-jepangan. Hehehe..) Dan  ternyata.. Enaaaaak!!!!! Rasa gurih nya itu nendang di dalam mulut. Agak menyesal, kenapa baru  ngincipi sekarang.

Cumi hitam, martabak daging dan sate ayam hasil comotan punya temen juga enak..

beras-kencur
Dan pencuci mulut, es beras kencur. Lagi nggak mood ambil puding atau makanan manis lainnya.

Over all, makanan di hotel ini enak-enak kok. Kayaknya chefnya oke bener (ya iyalah..) Apalagi di acara tahun baruan besok, mereka bakal menghadirkan menu Kambing Guling dan macam-macam menu tradisional lainnya. Ambiance hotel nya juga menyenangkan dan instagram-able banget. LOL..

So, booking now! psst.. jangan lupa ajak-ajak saya yes…. 🙂

me, in my early 30

Assalamu’alaikum… 🙂

How are you after all Eid al Fitr festive??

Me? Good but hope i didn’t add any weight. LOL.. Yeah, festive means many food yes.

And to add the celebration, i will announce today i turn 30!!! *clap *clap *clap

z7303 number 30 gold

pict: here

Can believe that after tomorrow when people asked my age, i will reply 30. Well, goodbye my twenties. Hahahaha..

In the past, i will lil bit worry when i reach my 30. Will i have all the material things? Will my skin goes aging? Will i be a happy person?

All those worries make me afraid to face my new age. Sometimes i refuse to remember that i will become 30 years old and older and older. But still Allah gives me a chance (once again) to live, whether it in happiness or sadness. Choose.

If i can look back, especially in recent months, all the worries just a non sense. Hehehehe.. Instead I just feel grateful. I feel grateful with that chance. So i can live in better life.

My recent problem teach me to not be afraid of anything because we still have Allah. Allah show me how to be brave facing all obstacles. Allah chooses to test me. Allah chooses to give my long life. For what? Guess i know the answer.

Now, I already shed my tears, gave my forgiveness for all (including you, yes you..) and set my life goal is:

Simply, to become Allah’s humble servant.

As all It did to me, it will be ungrateful if i still forget It and into my duniawi thingy 🙂

I will not say i will forget the problem. No, cause still it left a big scar in my heart. But it will be my reminder how life is it. How i should react to it?

“gosh, why still these tears??*

I will not ask any special thing. I will not ask a big celebration. I even won’t ask a beautiful dinner with my hubby. Cause you know it so well..

I will not ask cake with candle from you too.. But if you are a generous person, just send me any korean skincare goodies. Hahahaha..

No, just send your pray to me. I just want to a happy and healthy and always be a grateful person.

In the end, happy 30!!!

#ramadhanday9 Big Family still Family

 

Last nite was my nephew’s birthday celebration. Not just usual party, it came at the same time with Ramadhan, so we can say iftar party. Yohoo!!!

Actually i weren’t too interested to join since my heart still gloomy. I just hated anything that force me to become a social person. Heeee..

But Koci-koci (my sist) insisted i should joined, since this is will be the reason my mood will light up. And not to forget, the birthday boy is my beloved nephew. The one that i adore and cherish so much. Sometimes i called them (he and his brother) my sons.

Here was it.. Hotel Harris Surabaya.

Came with a heavy heart and a bloating face after crying (LOL) i forced my self to smile and looks happy in front of my big family. I’m not too interested too eat since my gastric acid struck my stomach after i had an iftar party earlier at office.

Oh yes, my sister right. My mood is light up!! Chit chat, taking pictures and finally eat something. Heee…

Then, something strike me! My cousin –birthday boy’s mom– said actually those two brothers complaint to her by ask “has Aunty Reza and Aunty Rossy (my sis actual name) already forgot us?” “why they never seen us anymore?”
Which is.. What??!!!

Oh my.. Suddenly my heart breaks. Yes, before got married i was closed to them. I often visited them at their home, slept with them and their babysitters, went holiday together. Wuaaaa…

And then i rarely visit them. It turns out they missed me (and my sis)!!!!

Then i just i hold them quietly and hug and make a promise to spare my time to play with them a n y t i m e..

Forgive my selfishness dear, you know i always love you.

Well, maybe husband is anything but other family is everything. I should spend my time with them very often, key #ramadhangoals #familygoals

Some picts for console my soul…

Ramadhan in Blue #Day6

Wuaaa.. It already almost a week of Ramadhan. Can’t believe time will move so fast yes? Somehow i lil bit make hope that Ramadan will lasted longer.

Hehehe..

How was your Ramadhan first week? I hope everything is okay.

I just want to share about my turmoil these days.. Galau cyiin..

Actually i lil bit hard to welcomed Ramadhan this year. Well, i have a problem. Personal problem. Which made my life turns to down side. I depressed, sick and hopeless (as i thought). Somehow, i thought it will be hard to get full of life anymore. Heeeeee…

But then, one of my friend slap me (not in reaal way) that why i became soo desperate? I still can come to my God and make prays. Especially since this is Ramadhan, a month of purification.. Yes, there are many forgiveness, blessing, generosity and how you purify your body and mind from all devilishness (just because devils are chained down in this month).

He said this is the time for me to make an acceptance for aaaaalll God’s provision.

Aaah, the “slap” worked..

I cry all nights to God with my problem. Hoping there is an answer. I also try to make an improvement in my worshiping way since i always be a so-so.. I try to close to It.

And you know, amazingly.. Allah didn’t give me the direct answer or solve about my problem instead It just show me that i should be more keep in faith and taqwa (condition where we should being conscious to Allah, being piety, fear of God) and be patience. Just it.

What the…

So i see. That problem came as a reminder to me. As i walked too far away from Allah. Become more hedonist, stubborn and arrogant person. God…

After all, i can say thank you.. Thank you life for being wonderfully teach me. And how amazing i found this problem in Ramadhan.. Even though i started this year Ramadhan in blue i hope in the end i will find my colorful Eid. Yes!!

Happy fasting for all of you..
