Shangpree Olive Virgin Cleansing Oil

I'm back with another try out of Shangpree product! This time is its Olive Virgin Cleansing Oil. I have been using this cleansing oil for 10 consecutive days together with Shangpree Crystal BB Cream.

Actually I never tried any cleansing oil before and used to clean my face with cleansing milk then continue it with facial wash. I've heard so many rave about using cleansing oil to clean your make up as it has proven to be more effective than cleansing milk. So, I give it a try!

Shangpree Crystal BB Cream

Hey again! Lately I've been so diligent that I posted regularly. LOL. Well, I've been busy but still managed to keep up with the blog posts because I find myself hard to get asleep. Yes, the more I am being exhausted, the harder for me to fall asleep. T_T

So, this time I would like to tell you about another beauty brand from the famous South Korea; Shangpree. This time, I had a chance to try Shangpree Crystal BB Cream. It claims as anti-wrinkle, whitening, and skin-cover.

So, let's prove all of it then. For your information, I got this product around 10 days ago. And for 10 consecutive days, I always apply this BB Cream (that's why I call this post as try out instead of review).

Wandering Fairy? I'm Lost

Once upon a time.. There's a fairy who'd love to wander around. She wanders around so many times that one day she's lost. Yes, she's nowhere she knew. 

She looks around and trying to find way home. Every single day, every step she's taken, but she's still nowhere.

What's Your Wish? WISHTREND!

OK, My birthday was just a month ago. But still, I have so many wishes that I haven't fulfilled yet! Grrr, blame it to myself then for having too many wishes. Another BB Cream, lip stain, mascara, errr... I have to stop. Talking about endless wishes, I would like to introduce a very nice website called WISHTREND.

So, WHAT is it really?

WISHTREND is the trendiest online commerce worldwide which provides Korean skin care, make up cosmetics, and tools and is now exporting to various countries in Asia, including our lovely country; Indonesia!

Well, you can get mostly everything here! They sell the famous Skin79, Rojukiss, Klair's, etc. Such a treat to us, the beauty maniacs and shopping freaks,right? x)

OH WAIT! Of course I know the biggest fear of everyone. I bet that you think to step back because you're afraid of the super-duper expensive shipping fee? Good news for us all, WISHTREND kindly gives FREE SHIPPING for purchase above USD 70! Just quickly tell your friends to shop then, quick! :D

Let's take a short journey through the website itself then...

the website
  1. Just type "" to your browser's address bar
  2. TADA! No need to wait for so long, the website loaded quickly whenever I access it (anyway I do love the simple yet clean layout that they have)
  3. Browsing... Browsing... And here are the things I keep my eye on.

Klairs 20% Discount!!!
Klairs Facial Mist only USD 6.99 + Samples! *crazy*   

OK, I have to breath again. Well, not until I saw the tab "Wish Box" then I clicked it. Turned out to be....

Wish Box
Well, I clicked WISH BOX (No. 5) because it was the only one available at that time... Prepare for a surprise!
Vacation in a box?
So WISHBOX consists of very special products which are not easy to get in abroad, with Korean theme. Whoaaaaaaaa..... I want this. I want this. I want this.

inside WISHBOX 5
With WISHBOX, you'll get a very nice deal as stated on the picture above, if you bought the products separately, you'll be charged USD 41.70. But by purchasing this WISHBOX, you will only pay USD 20.99! It's half the price, and moreover, it's a real product box, not a sample box!

OK, this is not the end of everything, I saw another tab "Wish Collection", then I thought "What's this again? Another wish? Yippeee!" So, WISHTREND organize its product not only by categories and brands, but also according to what they called Wish Collection; a series of collection organized specially by WISHTREND. For example, they have Summer Series No. 1 and 2, BB Cream Collection, Let Your Skin Breathe,etc.

Wish Collection
 I clicked for Summer No. 1

Etude House NEW Fresh Cherry Tint in OR201

I've always been a big fan of lip product, don't you know that lovelies? LOL. I have a lot of lip products and I always ended up buying lip products in every shopping therapy that I've done. So here it is, another review about another lip product! This time it's a lip tint from Etude House, NEW Fresh Cherry Tint in OR201.

the product
I bought this around 3 months ago, along with my friends. I fall hard for lip stains since it gives me natural finish and suitable for all occassion. Can't afford Benetint though, it's too pricey for me. So, the Korean brands are heaven for me, since mostly they provide from head-to-toe products and still affordable for a student like me.

My Beauty Diary - Honey Strawberry Mask

Hello everyone, I'm back with another review~ This time I'll review a sheet mask from My Beauty Diary that I got from Stuffedia on my birthday.

My Beauty Diary - Honey Strawberry Mask
Actually, this is my first time using My Beauty Diary mask. At first, I thought that this brand comes from South Korea. Well, you know that country is famous for cute and colorful packaging for its cosmetic brand. So I'm quite surprised to know that this is Taiwan brand. Anyway, it doesn't really matter for me, as long as the quality is worth the price. :D

So, the mask that I tried this time is My Beauty Diary - Honey Strawberry Mask. It has a very cute and eye-catchy packaging with pastel yellow color and Hello Kitty! (Yes, I used to collect Hello Kitty things during my childhood). The writings are mostly in Chinese, so aside from it I do not know what it means, LOL. Luckily, it provides the English ingredients so at least I know what the ingredients are.

So the ingredients to be concerned are the ones which located on the top. So, this mask contains Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, and Propylene Glycol act as humectant. One thing to be considered more is Propylene Glycol, I search through Mr. Google and find out that it has been associated with irritant and allergic contact dermatitis as well as contact urticaria in humans. So for those of you who has sensitive skin, you gotta watch out for this ingredients.

Then it also contains Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, which is known for being cooling properties (helps heal sunburns), protecting skin from UV damage, and also help with other skin lesions, wounds, and radiation burns, as well as acne, pimples, and rosacea. Sodium PCA, Sodium Hyaluronate, and Honey Extract help as  humectant and anti-inflammatory. 

Enough with the ingredients, let's move to the application~

FOTD: How Lipstick Shade Can Change The Whole Look

Hi! This time I would like to talk about lipstick shades. Actually, I am a lipstick person, yeah most of my makeups are lip products. From lipbalm, lip stain, lipgloss, lipstick, and so on. And don't forget that I have different shades for one kind of product.

So, one day when I was preparing for my look for Kérastase Fusio-Dose Infusion Night , I was stuck on which lipstick shade should I pick for it. Here are the pictures.

So, for your information, I was wearing the same whole make up for both look. The only difference is the lipstick shade. For look 1, I use Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick Shade 117 Almost Nude (this is by far my favorite shade, especially for nude look). I love this shade because it has a very nice nude shade that is slightly peach and brightens up my whole look. I guess this look would be suitable for afternoon, for daily wear when you're working or having a class at your college. 

The second look; look 2 is more dramatic, right? Here I used Viva Lipstick No. 49. It's a warm red-to-orange shade. I love how pigmented and moisturizing this lipstick actually. Despite of its cheap price and the too much fragrance (reminds me of that fragranced-pen when I was a child), the quality is decent. I don't know the price since I got it for free from Viva Cosmetics. Oh I almost forget to mention that this lipstick has some kind of soft glitters on your lips, too. So, I can conclude that this lipstick will be most suitable for night occasion where you want to look more glamorous and dramatic.

Anyway, I have warm undertones, I think that's why most of my lip color comes in warm shades and maybe this is why I look pale when I wear soft pinkish color... Hmm..

For better observation of the products, you can take a look at below:

The Lipsticks
Swatches on hand

In the end, I chose look 1 because I will attract too many attention when I walk along my neighborhood to the bus shelter. There were a lot of times when I have to hear noises from old men and mothers when I passed them by. -_- Well, that's the price for living in a very conservative country, where we can't truly express ourself (whining).

Anyway, here are the rest of the look:

Primer: Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer
Foundation: Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup Medium Beige
Powder: MAKEOVER Perfect Cover Two Way Cake 03 Sandy Beige
Concealer: MAX Factor Mastertouch Under-Eye Concealer 303 Ivory & NYX Concealer in Jar Orange
Blush: NYX Soho Glam

Eyebrow: Etude House Easy Brow Pencil #1
Eyeshadow: NYX Soho Glam (bronze, light brown, dark brown, white)
Eyeliner: Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Liner 001 Black
Mascara: Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara Black

Shiseido New Make Up Launching

So, On last Friday, I got an invitation from IBB to Shiseido New Make Up Launching Autumn Winter 2012 at Glow Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta. There were a lot of other fellow beauty blogger who attended the event at that time. And yes, I was so excited since I met so many new friends!

Well, I came too early that day, yeah I was done with an interview in Mampang and just headed to Plaza Indonesia afterwards. I came at 12 pm -_-. So, when I walked past by the Glow, I saw there were only empty chairs there so I ran to the rest room to fix my make up.

snap of my look that day
 Then I came around 1 pm and I met Marsha and her friend, they came early just like me. Finding that there's nothing to do, so I walk around took some pictures there.

Kérastase Fusio-Dose Infusion Night

Hi everyone! I guess it's been long since the last time I posted something here. Last Thursday, on 1 November 2012, I got the invitation to Kérastase Fusio-Dose Infusion Night. Actually, I planned to go with my friends, but as usual, in the end, none could make it that night (yeah, sometimes it's annoying when your friends cancelled appointment during the last minute, bla bla bla *insert reasons here*). OK, enough whining. 

There were two events that day, first was the Press Conference and later the Infusion Night. I asked Ci Carnellin about which event that we should attend, and she said we can attend both events since we're media too (bloggers are independent journalist, rite?). So, I tried to attend both of the events, but turned out to be late. (> _ <)

When I arrived, it was only Yessy and her friend in the press room. Hoho, enjoyed a very nice pudding and lemon tea (my favorite!).

Perawatan Kulit di Malam Hari: Penting!

Semenjak bergabung di grup Indonesian Beauty Blogger (IBB) dan mulai ngeblog tentang kecantikan, saya akui saya jadi lebih rajin merias dan merawat diri, terutama wajah. Namun, apa kabar bagian tubuh lain? Jujur, saya memang agak malas dalam merawat tubuh, terutama body lotion. Hal ini karena saya tidak suka dengan teksturnya yang lengket, ditambah lagi dengan padatnya aktivitas saya di luar ruangan. 

Seringkali saya melihat perbandingan kulit wajah dan lengan, ah geli rasanya. Warna kulitnya sangat kontras karena memang saya tidak melakukan perawatan apapun pada bagian tubuh lain, termasuk lengan. Lalu saya tersadar bahwa selama ini saya sudah sangat teledor dalam merawat kulit. Ah, tapi tetap saja keinginan untuk merawat kulit tubuh dengan menggunakan body lotion ternyata kalah dengan rasa lengket yang saya khawatirkan hadir nantinya.

Kalau diperhatikan dengan seksama, sebenarnya kulit tubuh saya ini tergolong kering. Hal ini sangat terasa terutama setelah mandi dan bangun tidur. Belakangan, setelah mencari di internet, saya dapatkan fakta bahwa ternyata pada malam hari kulit kita beregenerasi dua kali lebih banyak dan kandungan air dalam kulit hilang 25% lebih tinggi dibandingkan pada pagi maupun sore hari. Oleh karena itu, kulit membutuhkan pelembab khusus pada malam hari untuk mencegah hilangnya kelembapan serta membantuk proses regenerasi.

Jadi terjawab sudah pertanyaan tentang mengapa kulit saya terasa sangat kering saat bangun tidur ya. Hmm..  Saya pun mulai memperhitungkan untuk melakukan perawatan kulit tubuh malam hari.

Saat sedang berbelanja kebutuhan sehari-hari di suatu hypermarket, saya tidak sengaja melihat Citra Night Whitening Hand & Body Lotion di rak body lotion. Dalam hati saya pikir, "wah ini produk baru ya, baru lihat." Akhirnya karena tertarik dengan kemasan dan warnanya (ungu! warna kesukaan saya) serta karena penasaran dengan khasiatnya, saya putuskan untuk membelinya.

Setibanya di rumah, saya pun langsung coba memakainya (meski belum tiba malam hari ya). Jadi Citra Night Whitening Hand & Body Lotion ini memiliki wangi lembut yang bikin relaks. Dari baunya sih aroma buah-buahan, mungkin wangi mulberry ya. Selain itu teksturnya juga sangat ringan dan mudah merata di kulit. Oleh karena itu, tampaknya si Citra Night Whitening Hand & Body Lotion ini cocok juga buat massage.

Usut punya usut, ternyata Citra Night Whitening ini bekerja dengan menggabungkan kekuatan dari dua bahan alami dari ekstrak mulberry dan minyak biji anggur yang diformulasikan khusus untuk pemakaian di malam hari. 

Untuk yang belum tahu manfaat-manfaat yang terkandung dalam bahan-bahan Citra Night Whitening, kamu bisa baca di bawah ini ^_^

  • Ekstrak mulberry membantu mencegah pembentukan melanin pada kulit dengan menghambat kerja enzim tyronase.
  • Minyak biji anggur ternyata mengandung linoleic acid; salah satu lemak esensial yang dapat membantu regenerasi kulit. Tidak hanya itu, minyak biji anggur juga mengandung antioksidan yang dapat menghambat proses pembentukan radikal bebas.
  • Sinergi antara ekstrak mulberry dan vitamin B3 dapat membuat kulit tampak lebih cerah.
Wah, ternyata manfaat-manfaat yang ada dalam Citra Night Whitening ini banyak juga ya, tidak hanya melembapkan, namun juga meregenerasi dan mencerahkan kulit. Tidak hanya wajah, tubuh pun bisa ikut cantik!

 Jadi, bagaimana dengan kamu? Sudahkah merawat kulit tubuhmu di malam hari?
