>> 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.

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.

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.<<

homemade_kefir for skin detox

Hello friday!!

Today i will give you a review about my recent skincare regime. It looks like i change my regime for every month. Hohoho… #notthatimcomplain #myhubbydoes

For February and recently i dare myself to try KEFIR for detoxifying reason.

Yes, kefir is everywhere now in Instagram world. You can drink it or put on your face as skincare regime. What? Yes, cause kefir known has many benefits. Even you can found kefir in Al-Quran (76: 5-6). But what kefir is?
Here’s the information that i found in wikipedia:
Kefir, keefir, or kephir (/k?’fir/ k?-FEER),[1][2] alternatively milk kefir, or búlgaros, is a fermented milk drink made with kefir “grains” (a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter) and has its origins in the north Caucasus Mountains.[3] It is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains.[4] Traditional kefir was made in skin bags that were hung near a doorway; the bag would be knocked by anyone passing through the doorway to help keep the milk and kefir grains well mixed.

Naturally, i should stay away from kefir (cause you know, animal milk..) But since i develop hemorrhoid symptom, i started drink yogurts which a pretty help during the healing time. And just because kefir is yogurt like but more in higher level, maybe i should give it try. Not to drink it (i’m afraid the taste is unbearable. Heeee…), but to put on my skin cause the benefit for your skin. It said kefir can ditch all chemical thingy from  you skin. You named it hydroquinon, mercury etc.

Yes, i give it try and started to look many kefir products. From instagram (where else..), i found homemade_kefir, a mother who sell many kefir products especially skin and body care. And she reside in Surabaya (cheaper delivery cost, anyone?). Hurray!!!

She offered 2 package skincare regime which consist: kefir mask, toner, cleanser, cream, facial foam. The difference lay on the mask, one with blueblack varian the other is pure etawa kefir mask.

I choose the pure one since it cheapest. Bwuahaha… I also skipped facial foam cause simply i don’t need it. But i added V-Spray because it claimed can help to cure hemorrhoid.


So.. Let’s check my review!

1. Cleansing milk
>> It has lime scent and creamy texture. A good cleanser which help you to throw away the dirt. But you should know, usually i don’t put a ton makeup. So, i don’t know if this milk could be a makeup remover too. Use it twice a day: morning and night before sleep.
2. Toner
>> My most favorite product. It watery like. So give a refresh and bright feel to your skin. Apply after you cleanse your skin.
3. Pure etawa mask
>> it claimed can:
1) Detoxify your skin from chemical ingredients that live long under your skin surfaces
2) Reduce acnes and dark spots and fungi (wait, fungi in my face ?? Yieks)
3) Reduce fine lines and shrink pores
4) Maintain your skin’s natural moisture
5) Smoothing and brightening your skin (Well, it does. Hehehe..)

>> For the first 30 days of detox program i should regularly apply mask EVERY DAY. But sometimes i skipped. Heee.. For some time, when the mask still on my face i can feel “nrecep-nrecep” oh my, i can’t find a similar word in English, maybe sting effect. You know, like an ant bite your skin. Not in dangerous way. Really. The Homemade_kefir owner said it detox effect. So, never mind. Usually i feel it on my chin and cheeks. Can’t complain tough cause i can feel the good things. My blackheads vanish! And give the brightness vibe instantly!
4. Kefir cream 3pc
>> made from kefir and coconut oil and others. The only one product that show the ingredients. Hehehe.. It has a creamy texture and lime scent too like the cleansing milk. But the milky scent is smell strong too which is…. *sigh* The coconut oil add protections against UV.

5. V-spray
>> Has watery like texture too like the toner but with different (and odd) smell. Hee.. Never mind, it help to lessen my hemorrhoid symptoms. Alhamdulillah.


What I like : It definitely give everything as promises. My skin slowly become smooth and moist and I realized that my smile lines doesn’t looks firm as usual.I just hope that the fungis will also gone away too (since i can’t see it.. Hehehe).

What I dislike:
It should keep in refrigerator *sigh* For a lazy girl like me it’s too tiring..
Doesn’t show the ingredients. I mean, since it good products, I should know which ingredient that change my skin so much. Or maybe it’s simply kefir that work amazingly.
The smell!! How many times I told you that I hate milky smell. But since I determined to try Homemade_kefir, I should bear it. Hehehe..

Re-purchase : not now.. I still traumatized with the smell. I should prepare my mentality more. Hehehe.

So, if you never find a problem with milky products. You should try!

Happy friday,
