The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter

Hello guys, I’ve been trying a solid cleanser/cleansing balm (or butter), I originally want to try Banila Co Clean It Zero since so many people rave it , but it’s kind of pricey 😩 *sobs*, so I decided to get this one instead, it’s from The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter.

I bought this when my friend bought other stuff at The Body Shop store, I tried the tester and I believe that this is cleansing balm , a bit confuse at first because it’s written cleansing butter, makes me think it’s something similar with body butter or lip butter. 😅

image

It cost me IDR 199.000 or around 15 dollars (I think it could be 15-19 dollars. Depends on the currency).

image

No inner lid inside, and I don’t want to scoop it with my finger, or even nails 😓. So, I put a clean spatula inside, on top of the product.

Always use it with clean and dry hands. I only use a tiny amount, just the size of the spatula, put it on my hand, and then start to rub it between hands until it turns into oil, and then apply it to your face and neck (I usually use it on my neck too, since the dust and pollutant also leave dirt on neck).
Give a little massage without too much pressure.
After that, wet your hands, rub it to your skin to dissolve the oil until it turn into milky white, and then rinse it off.
It’s written you can also wipe it with wet cotton, but I prefer to wash it with lots of water.
Basicly, it’s a similar method like cleansing oil.

image

After several weeks of use, I gain no breakout or alergic or any other bad reaction. I love it, love the scent, love how it works, love how it’s not gonna leak when I bring it around for travelling.
It’s quite huge but also quite thin, makes it less bulky.

I have dry, acne prone and quite sensitive skin. It did a good job removing makeup (I always double cleanse when I use make up).
Very recommended for traveller.

It doesn’t dry out my skin after using it , while face wash or many cleansers usually dry out our skin and make skin feels a bit tight.
It feels a bit moist though (if that makes sense) and doesn’t leave any sticky or oily feeling.

I don’t use it on area around my eyes, I use makeup remover on that area, but I use it on lips. My suggestion is clean the lips using makeup remover in prior before using this cleansing butter because… It doesn’t really take all of those lip product especially when those lips on dry condition (lip products here such as liquid lipstick, lip tint, and other staining and waterproof lip product).
Maybe it’s not for waterproof makeup, but other than that, it’s a great product.

That’s all for my review. Hope you guys find it useful.

Mamonde Rose Water Soothing Gel

Annyeong Haseyo 🙋
Hey guys, been away for a while. I’m back to do a review about this moisturizer gel from Korean brand called Mamonde (* mamongdeu ;))

I bought this from my friend around October last year. It cost me around 10 dollars for 300ml.
The concept is similar with the Aloe Vera Gel or Snail Gel version from other brands.

image

Pink rose, I was gonna say the meaning of it, but unfortunately I don’t know, hahaha. I only know Red Rose for love, Yellow Rose for friendship (correct me if I’m wrong).

image

The packaging is made of plastic but it’s quite sturdy, without inner lid.
I think it’s also multi purpose gel, I’m not really sure since it’s all written in Korean (I can read Hangul but I don’t speak Korean).

image

image

It has rose scent, not too strong and not too soft.
Texture, not too thick and not too watery, it’s moving when I tilt it.
But, one suggestion for you guys, do not put your gel type moisturizer in a hot room temperature.
I put it inside my cupboard but I don’t know why somehow the temperature inside it is as hot as my room (while I’m going out for a day). In my room at my house in different city is not like this, eventho the room’s temperature os hot, but not inside my cupboard.
The result is, the heat change the gel’s texture. Now, it’s getting more watery and smells a bit different than before.

image

Anyway, for the gel itself, it doesn’t feel sticky that long. It’s easy to absorb, I usually use it on my face, and around belly+chest.
For my dry skin, it’s not moisturizing enough if I use it alone. I layer this with other moisturizer to get a better hydration.

It’s also a good product for burnt skin, I mean like sunburnt or splashed by hot oil while frying, because it’s soothe the skin, reduce inflammation as a first aid.
Not bad for 10 dollars multi purpose gel.

That’s all for my quick review.
Hope you guys find it useful.

L’oreal Mat Magique BB Essence

Hello again.
I almost forgot about this product. I wonder about this product because the wand is in unique shape, but to me apparently it became a bad thing.
Here’s the look :

image

It is quite small, but made of glass so it’s heavier than BB or CC cream packaging.

image

Here’s the wand, pointy wand, but the problem is the foundation itself is very liquidy, and I can’t get enough amount if I use the wand, I ended up have to pour it anyway.

image

Shake the bottle before using it, it’s a transparent liquid at the top and the foundation underneath.
Once it set, it turn out to be powdery finish.

image

For dry skin, it’s not that moisturizing, and I have to blend it immediately before it sets on my skin.

Sheer coverage, it feels lightweight for everyday use but unfortunately it makes me got a breakout.

That’s all for my short review, hope you guys find it useful.
Thanks for reading.

Foreo Luna Mini 2 Midnight.

A few months ago, I finally decided to get one of Foreo. When I check Sephora store I saw this Foreo Luna Mini 2 and black colour is available. Unfortunately this one is not on sale :(.

image

Anyway, here’s what I thought about this cleansing tool. I know this thing is not cheap, I can get a cellphone with the same price (even my phone is cheaper than my Foreo!! 😅).

This thing cost me around $200. I got a Luna Mini 2 inside a transparent plastic case. Luna mini version not include box, unlike the Luna or Luna 2.
USB Cable right underneath the Luna inside a box with manual book and guarantee card.

image

The size is medium/average, not too big like Foreo Luna and not too small like Foreo Go/Play.

Luna Mini 2 have option for the vibration, it has 8 level of vibration’s power as I remember, but I usually use the Lowest.
The previous version, Luna Mini only have on and off power button, without + and – button.

image

image

It is made of silicone including the bristles, no replacement brush head needed. Luna Mini 2 for all skin type.
Larger area with smaller bristles for all over the face, usually for dry to normal skin.
Smaller area with larger/biggest bristles at the top for around the nose or big pores.
Bigger bristles at the back for oily part of the face, or for oily skin.

image

Serial numbers at the bottom, and the USB cable. I use my cellphone adapter to charge this. When it’s charged, the LED lamp at down below the product will blinking, and it stop blinking when the battery is fully charged.

image

I put the cable inside the plastic case, I don’t want it to be “gone somewhere” just because I forgot where I put it. I don’t know where to buy the USB cable IF maybe/just in case the cable is broken, or lost, or something else. I don’t think Sephora sell it separately.

image

I usually use it twice a week, to remove the left over make up and dead skin cell without too much exfoliate the skin. I read the information from many source that Foreo is also a soft exfoliating tools.

I try my best not to push Foreo too hard on my face, I just make the Foreo have a contact with my face and then move it around all over the face.

Do it in section, I started with my right cheek first, when I feel the “sudden-quick-stop” of the vibration  (before it’s continue to vibrating again), that’s a signal to move to another section of the face.

When 3 times short vibrations is coming, it means the end of the process.
As I remember it’s divided for 4 sections. After 3 time short vibrations I turn it off, and then turn it on again because I usually haven’t work on my nose area.
Sometimes I use it on my neck too.

Around the forehead, the vibration somehow feels harder, maybe because less fat/meat there. 😄
If you have migrain or similar symptoms, be careful while doing the forehead area.

Overall I like this cleansing tools, eventhough I want the Luna 2 Purple/Lavender too which have a softer bristles for sensitive skin, but it is so PRICEY!! :'(😭

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it useful.

Catrice Prime & Fine + Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder

Back again guys!! Now with make up named Catrice. I saw this on Guardian (again), I thought the price would be similar with Maybelline/Revlon/Wet n Wild, but apparently this is CHEAPER!! 😨😱

If I’m not mistaken, each of these two cost me around 6 dollars.
I tried SO HARD not to do sweepstakes, hahaha. 😄😄

image

I decided to buy primer and bronzer, I actually want to try two primers, the white and green, but the green one is sold out :twisted:.

image

I like the packaging, sleek slim tube with twist cap. Easy to bring because it’s not bulky or heavy, and it’s 30ml, not 15ml or 20ml.

Texture is like a lotion, no smell, feels moist on skin and easy to spread.

Eventhough the colour is white, but it turns into a transparent. I don’t find this primer helps control the oil, but it’s quite good keep the make up last a little longer.

image

image

Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder in Darker Skin. I choose the darker one because the lighter one looks too soft and light (Think of it, I can use that one as a face powder 😄).

This bronzer is matte, brown without too orangey or reddish or greyish. It’s warm tone.

image

Texture is not powdery, but quite pigmented, I use duo fibre brush or synthetic fluffy brush to apply.

It has smell and quite noticable, if you don’t like smell on beauty products, you might a bit bothered by this.

I like the result, it’s buildable and looks natural on skin.

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it useful.

Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance Ultimate Serum

Hello again. Skin care review again. I saw this cute serum of Garnier at Guardian. I don’t even know yet whether this product suits my skin or not, I just want to buy it because the appearance is cute!
Hahaha, I know, sounds so lame 😜.

image

It has a lifting pump (?), usually the pump using straw inside, but this type is the bottom keep going up when we use it. One pump is enough for all over the face and neck.

image

The serum’s colour is sakura pink with white pearls. I prefer blend it on my fingers before apply it to my face.

Texture is very light jelly-feel-kinda-thing. It’s easy to spread, the scent also soft, I don’t know if it’s a sakura’s scent or not because I’ve never smell it before 😙.

Ingredients :

It doesn’t break me out too.
That’s all for my quick review, hope you guys find it useful.

Wardah lightening + New Cell day cream

Selamat pagi, eh siang semuanya…
Ketemu lagi dengan saya, dan saya akan bahas skin care lagi. Bagi saya icip-icip skincare itu bagai icip-icip permen.

Kali ini saya ingin bahas dua skin care lokal yang menurut saya produknya terasa mirip, yaitu Wardah dan New Cell day cream.

image

Shall we begin? (Ceileh sok nginggris 😝).
Kita mulai dari New Cell dulu ya. New Cell ini ternyata produk dari PT.Gloria… (lupa lanjutannya), dulunya ngluarin make up merk apaaaa gitu (lupa lagi merk-nya).

Nuansanya herbal karena warnanya hijau putih gitu, meski nggak herbal juga sebenarnya claim produknya (hanya sugesti saya aja terhadap warna hijau) :mrgreen:☺.

Pekejingnya New Cell terbuat dari plastik biasa, dengan lapisan plastik untuk print merk dan tulisan dll.

Pekejing Wardah step 2 kali ini yang say beli bentuk tube. Kalo yang step 1 dulu bentuk jar, dan plastik seperti New Cell juga.

image

Warna dan tekstur produk antara Wardah dan New Cell mirip pake banget, thick jelly-cream dan agak lengket, dan menyerap dengan sempurnanya agak lama.

Hanya saja Wardah aromanya seperti permen , kalau New Cell aromanya… aroma pelembab (?).

image

Untuk harga hampir sama, sekitaran 30-40an ribu Rupiah.
Isinya sekitar 20-30 gram.

Untuk yang ga suka pake make up (setelah skin care langsung cusss tanpa make up), tidak masalah untuk pakai pelembab ini dan biarkan pelembabnya teresap hingga sempurna dengan sendirinya.

Namun untuk yang akan memakai make up setelah skin care, kurang disarankan kecuali ada cukup banyak waktu untuk menunggu pelembabnya hingga terserap sempurna.

Maaf jika terlalu banyak kata “sempurna” yang terketik di sini 😄.

Sekian review dari saya. Semoga bermanfaat dan berfaedah.
Terima kasih sudah mampir dan membaca.
