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 managed 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.

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

Hada Labo Gokujyun Alpha Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream

Hello, back again with skincare review. I’ve finally decided to try this cream after I use the Lotion and Milk since many years ago. This line also have serum but I might try that later (also waiting for sale 😚😋).

Without further do, let’s start!

image

The packaging is so simple, just light weight plastic, 50ml but not too bulky, I kinda like it, save up so much space and reduce the weight of my suitcase when I bring it with me for travel.

image

I forgot to take a photo of the box, so sorry 😅.
This is license from Rohto Japan, so it’s not written in Japanese.
I got this around 8 dollars I believe, with 20% off.

image

It has inner lid, maybe to prevent from leaking, BUT… this cream in my opinion will not leaking at all.
Why? because it has a very very thick consistency. Even when I’m put it upside down like this, it doesn’t move at all.

image

Yes it is very sticky too, but after keep on patting and let it set for a few minutes, it’s not sticky anymore, and we can go to bed and have a nice sleep.

I usually use it in moderate amount after Lotion and Milk. If I use it too much, it gets harder to be absorb and it might be too rich for the skin.

I have dry skin so it really helps to moisturize my skin at night, and I gain no breakout.

image

You can always use spatula but because the diameter is really small for it, I usually just poke my clean finger in it. I know it’s not quite hygienic but putting spatula outside and exposed also not a good choice either.

Overall I love this night cream. Quite affordable with 50ml size jar (I hope they have a squeeze tube version, that would be more hygienic).
Really recommend for dry skin.

That’s all for my quick 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.

Innisfree Olive Real Essential Oil EX

Hello guys… 🙋

Been a long time. I’m back with skin care review, I’ve been using this for several months, it’s been around 8 months, wow it last quite a long time for a 30ml size.

It’s Innisfree face oil. As I knew they do have some variant but I wanted to try the Olive Real Essential Oil first instead of Green Tea Seed Oil, the other face oil is Soybean Oil.

image

The packaging is a glass bottle with pipette like most of face oil or serum packaging.
It is convenient to use, but not to bring with while travelling.

image

I usually use 2-3 drops in the evening, sometimes in the morning too when my skin feels more dry than usual (I’m dry to normal skin).

Texture is quite light, easy to absorb even before putting on make up. Sometimes I mixed it with my cream moisturizer or with my foundation to get a more glowy and moisturized look.

image

image

The smell a bit annoy me and not my favourite. I don’t know what Olive’s scent should be, but this is smells like Citrus.
The smell dissapear tho after some seconds, but still, not my fave.

When I first get my hand on this , I feel like “30ml, I think I will use it up quite fast”, but apparently this is still last after 8 months of use, and I still have a quarter left.

The price around 30 dollars, if it last for 10 months then it will be like around 3 dollars a month.

I like what it did to my skin on moisturizing a little longer and makes my skin look healthier and plump in the next morning.
It also doesn’t break me out, just remember guys, do not use it too much, 2-3 drops is enough ☺👍.

I want to try the soybean face oil. It’s on my wish list now.

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

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 😙.

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.

Ponds Dewy Rose Cream and Gel

Hey guys, Happy February, may you get much love from people around you 😘.

Now, I’m about to share new products on my skincare regime. I’ve tried this for several weeks, and I kinda like it.

It’s a new line of moisturizer from Ponds, Dewy Rose Series.
Let’s start!

Ponds Dewy Rose Cream.
I bought this on Guardian (because it’s on sale), I decided to buy this because I’ve tried the Gel one and I like it. At first I thought the texture is gonna be cream with jelly feel-texture-kinda-thing, but it’s not.
It’s more to a cream that not so thick but doesn’t have jelly texture.
Not as easy as the Gel version to be spread all over the face.
It has SPF 30 PA+++.

The Scent is not a strong rose scent. Have a slightly minty sensation when applied.
Moisturizing, and give “brightening” effect as if I’m wearing CC Cream.
It can be use as a base before makeup (like what CC Cream made for). The cream’s color is white, if you didn’t blend it well, you might ended up with white cream in your face 👻.

The packaging, frosted glass jar with reflecting rose color cap, eventhough it’s made from glass but it isn’t heavy (unlike the very thick and heavy glass of Loreal).
It has an inner lid to prevent leaking.

PONDS Dewy Rose GEL.
I bought this mini size on Indomaret Minimarket nearby my place. I tried it and I fell in love with it 😍.

The full size have the same packaging as the Cream, but I haven’t take a photo of it, will post it soon, sorry 😚😅.

Here’s the picture 🙂

image

👆 CREAM —– GEL 👆

The scent is a bit different than the Cream version, the Gel version have a softer scent in my opinion.

Texture is jelly (of course) and silica, it helps the skin feels smoother, jelly texture makes it easier to spread. The color also rose, not white.

I use it to mix my foundation too, 1:1 or sometimes 1:2 when I want more coverage. It gives a smoother result!! I reeeeeaally love it!! 😍😍

This one contains no SPF so I can use is it as a night cream too. For daytime I prefer using separate Sunscreen.
