Nivea Lip Balm Essential Care / Original Care

Hello guys, apa kabar semuanya?

Lama hiatus nih, hehe, by the way kalian dulu pernah nyobain Nivea Lip balm yang biru essential itu kan?

Nah beberapa waktu lalu aku beli lagi yang keluaran sekarang, seingatku lip balm ini sempet hilang dari peredaran gitu, yang mejeng di rak biasanya cuma yang versi buah-buahan aja.

Check my old review

right here guys!!

Setelah eksis kembali di pasaran, kubeli deh si biru ini (bukan si api biru yang idola para ibu itu ya).

Harganya sekarang kalo nggak salah sekitar 27 ribu atau 30 ribu.


Versi lama tulisannya Essential Care, versi baru tulisannya Original care.

Setelah kuperhatikan pekejingnya, kok agak beda tulisannya.

Kulihat bagian dalamnya (produknya) juga tidak terlalu milky white seperti dulu, bagian tengahnya kayak agak kekuningan melingkar gitu.


Setelah kucoba beberapa minggu, soal efektifnya masih sama seperti versi yang lama, namun yang versi baru ini stick lip balmnya ga gampang lembek, kalau yang versi lama kan baru seminggu dua minggu langsung benyek miring jembret sana sini.

Mungkin kapan hari ketika hiatus, pihak R&D Nivea sedang merumuskan formula baru kali ya supaya ga mudah benyek (maaf jika saya nebak-nebak, hahaha).

Jumlah berat netto nya masih sama, 4.8 gram / 5 ml. Mudah dioles ke bibir, melembabkan bibir dengan baik, mudah dan nyaman untuk dibawa-bawa karena ukurannya kecil dan bobotnya ringan.


Biasanya aku pakai malam sebelum tidur dan beberapa saat sebelum pakai make up.

Overall, it works really well, I love it, I do still like it like I used to be. Akan repurchase saat sudah habis.

Sekian review singkat dari saya.

Semoga bermanfaat dan berfaedah.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Hello July. How are you guys?
I want to review skincare, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, which is raved by so many beauty enthusiast.

I decided to get my hands on this teeny weeny baby :mrgreen:, the mini size.
It cost me around 5 dollars.


It’s packaging is a plastic, while the full version is made of glass I believe. No spatula included.

Eventhough it’s really small, I only need a tiny bit of it on each use. A little goes a long way.
I use it at night before sleep.


I feel that my lips smoother and moisturised in the next morning, repair dry and cracked lips.
Some of the claim is it also able to make dark lips turn lighter. I don’t find it change my lips that way. It doesn’t change my dark lips into pinkish colour (maybe that  depends on our genetic too, correct me if I’m wrong ☺).

As I remember I already use it over one month (every night) and it still remain quite a lot. I think I can use this small size for some months.

Repurchase? Yes, but the mini size, small and easy to bring and store (doesn’t take up so much space).
A little goes a long way.
More hygienic and fresh because it’s in jar, if I use skincare in a jar for over a year, I feel that the product is not hygienic anymore and I think the performance also decrease.

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

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. 😅


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


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.


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.

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!


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
Thanks for reading.

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.


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).


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).



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.


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.


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.


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.



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 23 dollars, if it last for 10 months then it will be like less than 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 😜.


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.


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.
Thanjs for reading.
