[REVIEW] Ranee Moisturizer Lipstick #17

Hola ladies!

Masih dalam suasana liburan, aku mau bayar hutang review yang semakin menumpuk. Maklum, tiap kali lewat toko kosmetik, swalayan, atau drugstore, tangan selalu gatel pingin beli sesuatu *kekep dompet erat-erat* 

Masih ingat pencarianku akan lipstick ungu dan akhirnya dapet si lipstick Ranee #16? Bagi yang belum tahu, silahkan melipir ke sini untuk baca reviewnya. Nah, meskipun aku udah dapet nih si lipstick ungu tua, aku masih penasaran dengan lipstick ungu muda *dasar emak-emak gak inget umur*. Aku emang bisa dibilang niat banget nyari lipstick itu. Entah kenapa aku mendadak jadi centil sejak ngelahirin baby Zinan *sok cari alasan*

Stop! Cukup basa basinya. Intinya aku kembali menemukan lipstick warna ungu dari Ranee. Apakah ini lipstick ungu yang aku cari? Yuk, kita lihat gimana si lipstick #17 ini di bibir aku.

[SPONSORED REVIEW] Pepsodent Activ White

Ketika aku dapat email dari tim yukcoba.in untuk ngetes pasta gigi Pepsodent Activ White ini aku seneng banget. Gimana nggak seneng? berarti tim yukcoba.in baca curahan hati aku tentang gigi aku. Apalagi ini kali pertama aku mendaftar untuk ikutan review. Pokoknya bahagia deh. 

Paket dari tim yukcoba.in yang berisi pasta gigi Pepsodent Activ White ini sampai hari Jumat lalu dan langsung aku tes. Klaim dari produk ini adalah "Whitening action from Day 1" alias mampu membuat gigi tampak putih dari hari pertama pemakaian. Seriously? Wow! Seperti yang aku kutip dari situs resmi Pepsodent www.tanyapepsodent.com, Pepsodent Activ White ini merupakan pasta gigi pemutih premium yang mengandung Perlite, yaitu bahan alami memiliki pengangkat noda yang umum dipakai oleh dokter gigi untuk proses pemutihan gigi dan Hydrated Silica yang memiliki kemampuan mengangkat noda sehingga membantu mengembalikan warna gigi putih secara alami. Apabila digunakan secara rutin, Pepsodent Activ White ini juga bisa menyelesaikan problem rongga mulut kita lho, yaitu:

# Mencegah gigi berlubang.
# Melindungi enamel gigi
# Mengurangi plak pada gigi
# Menyegarkan mulut

Sebagai guru  bahasa Inggris yang setiap hari harus ngomong di depan banyak murid, apa yang dijanjikan oleh Pepsodent Activ White benar-benar tidak bisa dilewatkan begitu saja. Wuuiiih, makin nggak sabar nih untuk mencoba. ^.^

[REVIEW] Daiso Natural Pack Charcoal Peel Off Mask

Happy Holiday, ladies!

Today I wanna share my thought about another Daiso product. For those who have no idea what Daiso is, it is a Japanese cosmetic and skincare brand. It isn't sold in Indonesia so you have to order it online if you want to buy. FYI, this is the second Daiso product I tried (for the first one, please click here!) So, is it as good as Daiso Natural Nose Pack? Here we go!

The main reason I bought this Daiso Natural Pack Charcoal is its colour. The black colour will make me easily check how much blackheads ripped off. Well, that's the idea. What's more, the reviews I've been reading said that this product is worth-trying. Now let's see...

[REVIEW] Ranee Moisturizer Lipstick #16 dan #22

Hai hai!

Kali ini aku akan menulis review dalam bahasa Indonesia karena produk yang akan aku review adalah produk lokal, asli buatan Indonesia, dan nggak yakin juga dijual di luar negeri. Selain itu, aku kan cinta Indonesia (meskipun sehari-hari ngomong pake bahasa Inggris). 

Entah kenapa, belakangan ini lagi kesemsem sama lipstick warna gonjreng. Ngerti kan yang dimaksud gonjreng itu seperti apa? Yap, gonjreng dalam artian warnanya cerah dan mencolok mata orang-orang yang ngeliatnya. Hehehe. Setelah kepoin beauty blogger dalam dan luar negeri, warna yang mencolok tapi masih wearable itu ada beberapa warna, seperti ungu tua *pake banget* dan orange. Butuh waktu seminggu untuk mendapatkan lipstick dengan warna yang aku mau dan juga sesuai dengan budget. Penasaran kan kaya apa? Yuk intip reviewnya...

[HAUL] ELF Beauty Haul - First Impression

Happy December, girls

I've been meaning to write a post about my latest ELF beauty haul, but somehow I could never find some time to write it. All thanks to my lil' baby boy who keeps waking up in the middle of the night.

Even though ELF is a hit or miss brand, it is still one of my favourite makeup products although it's kinda hard to buy their products here in Indonesia. I usually buy them online but, again, it depends on the seller's stocks. That's why I'm so freaking happy when I know elf is having its official web store in Indonesia. Yeeeaaay! It's just like having an early Christmas (even though I don't celebrate it). In the web store, you may find elf most selling and popular products but not all are available there.

Back to the haul, I have no idea that I've purchased bunch of their products in the last couple of months. Since I haven't got much time either, this post will be about my first impression of the products. Anyway, the products are in order of purchase.

[SPONSORED REVIEW] b.liv off with those heads - blackheads sebum gel by Cellnique

Girls, have you ever been in the situation where you put a lot of effort to put on your makeup and the only thing people notice on your face is the annoying blackheads on your nose? Or have you tried any possible ways to get rid of those heads with such pain but no success? Well, you are not alone, dear. It happened to me until I found this awesome product! 


the product is given to me for review purpose but it did not affect any of my opinions / honest review.

[REVIEW] Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm #03 Mightiest Maraschino


After a couple of weeks full of studying for my exams, I finally had enough spare time to write another review on my blog. This lipstick has been in my makeup stash for, like, 3 months. I would admit that I impulsively bought this lipstick. I had no idea why I needed to buy it since at that time I actually had like 4 red lipsticks. I just felt that I had to buy it. 

Talking about the brand, Clinique is well known for its skin care range and I don't know that it has the makeup products as well. The truth is, I never set my eyes on any Clinique products because it is way too expensive for my pocket.

[REVIEW] Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation #Natural Beige




Happy Friday everyone!

Finding a foundation that truly matches your skin tone is like finding a needle in the hay. So damn difficult! Especially if you have oily, acne-prone skin like me. A couple months ago, my friend mentioned about Maybelline product that would give a great matte look on my face. It's Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation. The Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation has always been a product on the shelf that I’ve fo sho been curious about. With high hopes, I bought this foundie last week. Keep reading.....

[REVIEW] Laneige BB Cushion #Dark

Happy Tuesday, sista!

Last Friday, I bought Laneige BB Cushion in sample size. I would call this purchase as gambling since I never find Korean BB cream's shade that matches perfectly with my skin tone. Well, let's find out my opinion on this product. 


I bought this little cute Laneige BB Cushion sample size in one of online shop on Facebook (check the seller here). This Laneige BB Cushion is available in 3 different shades,  #light, #medium, and #dark. If you buy all shades, the package comes together with the puff. I only bought one shade so I didn't get the puff. Never mind. I bought this for less than IDR 50,000. Ir's totally worth-paying since the full size product costs around IDR 400,000.

[REVIEW] Daiso Natural Nose Pack

Having an oily skin makes me get blackheads and whiteheads easily. They will pop out on my face without any invitation if I clean my face carelessly. With all my activities, I don't have much time to get a decent facial at beauty clinics and it sucks to have those whiteheads and blackheads. Usually, I use a nose pack (the one that looks like a sticker) to get rid of them, but that kind of nose pack is quite expensive and ineffective. That's all happened until I found this great product! 


If you go to the supermarkets or cosmetic shops and ask for a nose pack, they usually will give you the one looks like a sticker. This is the most common nose pack type you can find in Indonesia. Daiso Natural Nose Pack is not like other nose pack because of its texture. Yap, this product is a liquid pore strip. Though I may say its more a gluey-like texture.

[REVIEW] Milani Brow Tint Pen in Dark Brown


Holla sista! How's life going lately? 

A couple days ago, I and my friends discussed about how people despise beauty bloggers. Well, I personally don't consider myself as a beauty blogger (hey, I've never got endorsements from anybody) but yes, do I love to get sponsors. Back to the topic, I know that most blogs usually only give good reviews. That's why some people don't trust the reviews. However, I would like all my readers to know that everything I write in my blog is real,  not a make up post just to please readers. If most of my reviews are positive, it's because I don't really like writing something that is bad. 

Okay. Talking about positive-negative reviews, I finally have a gut to write a review about this product. This Milani Brow Tint Pen has been in my make-up stash like for ages. I bought it about two months ago in one of the online shops on FaceBook. At that time, I was so stunned by bunch of reviews I read that I decided to buy it immediately.

Smart shopping with iPrice - Gratis kupon diskon voucher dan penawaran menarik!

Sebagai seorang shopaholic (yak! Aku ngaku aku ini doyan belanja *malu*), belanja itu tidak hanya sekadar memenuhi kebutuhan, tetapi juga sebagai terapi. Lho? Apa hubungannya belanja sama terapi? Pada saat berbelanja, menurut aku membutuhkan energi baik fisik maupun mental. Misalnya nih kalau ke mall pasti kan muter-muter nggak cuma untuk cari barang yang kita suka, tapi juga cari barang yang lagi sale. Meskipun aku shopaholic, tapi ketika belanja teteeep yang dicari ya barang diskonan. Kalo sukses dapat barang yang didiskon besar tuh rasanya puaaas banget. Dan otomatis nge-boost mood aku.


Sejak aku melahirkan anak kedua-ku bulan Juli lalu, otomatis aku nggak bisa kemana-mana. Padahal jalan-jalan ke mall itu kegiatan favorit aku. Hiks. Jadilah aku bete di rumah aja. Mau ke luar rumah tapi kasihan sama si baby. Tapi kalau nggak keluar rumah bawaannya suntuk terus. Untungnya sekarang jaman udah canggih. Dengan adanya internet aku bisa belanja secara online tanpa harus keluar rumah. Ternyata sama serunya seperti belanja langsung di toko lho. Sayangnya belanja online itu jarang banget yang kasi diskon.

[REVIEW] Gizi Super Cream - my Holy Grail for a healthy skin

Halo! Apa kabar sista semua?

Karenaaaa.....

Kabar gembira untuk kita semua *ini bukan iklan ekstrak kulit manggis ya*

GIZI SUPER CREAM kini tampil dengan formula baru dan kemasan baru

Ini benar-benar kabar gembira lho, karena formula baru dari GSC mengandung 7 bahan herbal Indonesia, selain kandungan rumput laut yang jadi andalan, yang khasiatnya sudah tidak diragukan lagi. Selain itu GSC bekerja sama dengan LIPI mengembangkan 'NANO TECHNOLOGY' yang digunakan dalam cream-nya.

[DIY] Make your own lip stain - It's easy and cheap!

Holla girls!

Talking about lip stain, it is like a love-hate relationship. I love it because it gives very nice, natural-coloured lips. On the other hand, I do hate it because it makes my lips dry and my wallet dry as well (you know how expensive it is)

One night, while breastfeeding my baby, I bumped into a blog that talked about making your own lip stain. Whoa! It was like a dream comes true! Who would ignore a cheap, DIY lip stain? Not me ^.^

Because I desperately want to have one (my last lip stain I bought was Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint and it successfully made my lips like desert), so I gave it a try. The result was surprisingly amazing! I instantly fall in love with this!

[REVIEW - SPONSORED] Shizen Gokochi Facial Soap Green Tea

Holla everyone! 

After giving birth to my baby boy last week, I'm back with another review....

I had an opportunity to try a product I've never heard before. Well, I do know the brand but I have no idea that it's got another range of skin care. It's Shizen Gokochi Facial Soap from Cow Style. I got the soap around a month ago and I've been using it since then. Wanna know my opinion about this soap? Check this out....


PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY
Apparently, this product can be found in selected stores, such as Watson, Guardian, Metro and also in some online stores. The price is also varied depending on where you buy it. I got this soap from Kosmetik Jepang Online  Nihonmart where the price is IDR 65,000.


WHAT'S IN THE PACKAGE? 
The packaging is simple yet sophisticated. I like the design which is eye-catching. Inside the package, you will get a facial soap and a lather up net. I will tell you later about the incredible lather up net, keep reading! 
Though the package is cute, all the writings are in Japanese so I have no idea what they say. Thank God at the back of the it, there is a sticker with the basic information in Bahasa Indonesia. Otherwise, it would take ages to translate (or to find someone to translate it).
Another important point is this soap has already got POM license so you don't have to worry using it! It's a huge plus point for me (well, you don't wanna use a skincare product which isn't licensed, do you?)

Hey! another plus point it the expired date is also printed there! 

WHAT IT CLAIMS
I took the picture from the official website. It claims that the soap will remove dead cells and whitehead effectively and make your skin one tone lighter. All those claims are because of its main ingredient - which is natural green tea extract. 
Moreover, it contains seven (yap, seven girls!) elements of natural treatments that will moisture and improve your skin health. This is a diagram on how the product works on your skin.

HOW TO USE IT
This is the fun part of using the product! At first, I'm a bit skeptical about this soap because I've never used a bar soap as my facial soap (I always use facial foam to wash my face). I only use bar soap for body, but never for my face. I was thinking how to use this soap? Well, the product has an answer. There is a lather up net included in the package to help us use it. 
"Don't judge the book by its cover", that's my impression about the net. It looks like an ordinary net (well, it is a net) and more like a laundry bag for me *ups*. What you have to do is to put the bar soap into the net, wet your hands, and rub the net.
Tadaaaa, after you rub the net with the soap, it will make rich and soft foam instantly! 


OVERALL JUGDEMENT
When I post this review, I have been using this soap for more than three weeks. I started using it around a week before I gave birth to my baby boy, so I can say that the product is safe for pregnant woman. I didn't experience any purging or irritation while using it. 

What I like from the bar soap is the smell. I'm not really a fan of fragranced products, but the soap has different kind of smell. The green tea scent is not over the top. I kinda like it since it give a relaxing effect while I'm washing my face. So, only for this time, I have an exception for fragranced product. 

About all the things the product claims, I honestly don't really pay attention, especially the one that said it can make your skin one tone brighter. I don't see any significant change on my skin tone. However, I'm really surprised by the effects it gives on my skin. The first time I used it, I though it would make my skin dry and stiff. On the other hand, my skin was really moist and bouncy! I feel that my skin has improved a lot since I started using the soap. My skin now is less oily, with no blackheads and a small amount of  whiteheads. I also feel that my skin is smoother and my makeup stays longer. 

Talking about the price, I can say that it is quite cheap. Well, maybe at first you are reluctant to spend almost a hundred thousand rupiahs only for a bar of soap. But think about how long you can use it, it is cheap! As I told you I've been using it for almost a month but the soap doesn't change much. I guess the soap can last for more than 2 months (btw, my husband is also washing his face with the soap). 

Pros:
  • Cheap enough because you can use it for more than 2 months.
  • Give smooth and silky skin instantly.
  • Have a lot of fun with the creamy foam!
  • The lather up net is definitely the winner!
  • It doesn't make your skin dry and stiff.
Cons:
  • It's fragranced but the smell is quite soft.
  • Only available in some stores and online shops.
  • Doesn't make my skin one tone brighter, but I don't mind ^.^
Will I repurchase this soap? Since I also have another variant of this soap (the charcoal one) that I haven't tried yet, I think I will use the green tea one until it's ran out and then use the charcoal (hope I can write a comparison review of those soaps). 

That's all folks!
Have you tried this soap? Lemme know about your opinion and do not hesitate to write comment on this post!


Luv you! xoxo

[REVIEW] The Face Shop - Style My Eyebrow pencil in 01 Gray Brown

Yuhuuuu....

I'm back with my latest review. Since last week, I've had my maternity leave so I have some free time to look at those drafts and finish them. (though I still want to go to work and teach, but my manager doesn't allow me. I guess he's worried I will deliver the baby at the office). 

As you know, my HG for eyebrow is e.l.f. eyebrow kit (check this post if you haven't read it). I think I've been using it for more than a year and it is still the best for me. Aside from that, I do sometimes use another product for my eyebrows, like Viva Eyebrow Pencil in Brown. However, I don't really like the colour because its brown is more like reddish brown (not dark brown like my e.l.f.). I also tried Etude House Color My Brow once (I will write the review later on). 

Though I've got my HG product for my eyebrows. I still find out that using the e.l.f. eyebrow kit takes my time (especially when you are in a rush!). So, I was on a hunt to find a good eyebrow pencil. Thank God! I finally found my second HG! 

I proudly present you......

[REVIEW] My Konjac Sponge Water Drop Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sponge - My BFF for a clean, smooth skin

Holaaaa readers! 

I'm back with my truly honest review. So today I'm going to write about my latest product which I instantly fall in love with. Tadaaaa.... it's My Konjac Sponge Charcoal!


Well, for those who have no idea what this product about, it's a sponge for cleaning your face. Wait, it's not an ordinary sponge which you can buy in mini markets or cosmetic shops. This sponge is very special! How so? Because by using this sponge, you can have better skin! Curious? keep reading, girls!

Before I start the review, I would like to tell you that I have been using this sponge for more than 6 months and I have just bought the second one! It does mean that this product is REALLY good. From all variants of the sponge, I use the one with charcoal, Water Drop Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sponge. I chose it because it's the one that suits my skin's needs.

Let's get started!

[PREGNANCY] Facts about my pregnancy - Just sharing ^.^

Well, I can say that I am a proud mom-to-be. Being pregnant is a precious moment I will never forget. I believe all of you have the same opinion as me (even though you aren't married yet). As I told you before, I'm expecting my second baby boy (YES! It's a boy! Again) around mid-July. It means I only have about 2 weeks before the delivery and I have an urge to blab about my pregnancy. So, this it it! 

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT MY SECOND PREGNANCY
  1. I didn't realise I was pregnant until the baby was 12 weeks old! 
  2. I checked my pregnancy twice using different brands and they failed! Even though I already gave 1 week gap between tests. 
  3. The third time I checked, it was positive! Yeeeaaay!
    The result!

Sorry for MIA for almost half of the year!

Dear all my loyal readers.....

I am truly sorry for not writing enough in my blog (hiks....). To be honest, I have no intention to do it. It's just my life is getting busier, especially when I found out that I was pregnant early this year. I didn't realise I was pregnant until the baby was about 10 weeks old! Doh, what an ignorant mother I am! Moreover, I was totally preoccupied with my study. Last semester I was struggling with my 24 credits study. I know, I shouldn't have taken too many credits, but I want to finish my study soon. Anyway, If only I knew I would have a baby, I wouldn't have taken 24 credits last semester. 

Okaaaay, enough with all the excuses! 

I have so many drafts waiting in my blog to be posted. Most of them, of course, are about beauty and cosmetic reviews. Though now I rarely put on some make-up (basically I only put some lip gloss, eyeliner, and loose powder) because of the pregnancy, I will try to finish all the reviews so that you can read them all. So please, be patient.... 

Anyway. 

Since I'm now in my third semester pregnancy phase (it's already 36 weeks now!), I have a huge urge to write about my pregnancy. Hope, those posts about my pregnancy and motherhood won't bring you to boredom land (specially you who are still single, please just ignore the posts and read other posts, ok).

Again, thank you for still visiting my blog. 

Keep reading, sista! 


With love,

Tya
