current fave korean skincare

Hai semuanya!

Mulai sekarang aku akan posting blog dengan menggunakan bahasa Indonesia 'santai' (mungkin kadang di mix bahasa Inggris sedikit gak apa-apa yaa) supaya lebih enak dibaca. Nah, hari aku mau sharing tentang beberapa Korean skincare kesukaan aku. Ada 3 produk, yaitu essence, serum dan moisturiser. 

Yang pertama adalah essence. Aku pakai essence ini dua sampai tiga kali sehari setelah mandi atau cuci muka dan pakainya setelah pakai toner. Essence yang aku pakai adalah Galactomyces special treatment essence nya Manyo Factory. Aku suka banget sama packagingnya karena pakai pipet, jadi aku bisa takar berapa tetes produk yang mau aku pakai dan aku biasanya pakai 3-4 tetes untuk seluruh wajah dan leher. Cara pakainya, setelah di tetes ke telapak tangan (please make sure telapak tangannya bersih yaa), lalu diratakan ke seluruh wajah dan leher dan kemudian di tepuk-tepuk pelan. Texture nya watery banget, tapi begitu di apply di wajah terrassa banget oily feeling nya, untuk yang tipe kulitnya kering bakalan suka banget sama essence ini karena melembabkan kulit banget dan membuat kulit terlihat glowing dan sehat, untuk yang punya tipe kulit berminyak dan pakai produk ini juga, please feel free to share your experience and opinion about this product di kolom komen yaa. 

Beberapa hari pertama pakai essence ini di wajah aku muncul 2-3 jerawat kecil, tapi aku cuekin dan tetap pakai essence ini, setelah 2 minggu jerawat hilang dan acne scarnya cepet banget pudarnya. Essence ini punya efek brightening juga, jadi memang bener wajah jadi cerah setelah 3-4 minggu pakai produk ini. 

Korean skincare biasanya aromanya harum, tapi essence ini menurut aku nggak ada baunya sama sekali, jadi kalau kami sensitif terhadap bau kosmetik, dll produk ini aman kok. Selain itu, harga produk ini juga nggak mahal, malah menurut aku cenderung murah kalau dilihat dari sisi efek positif yang aku lihat di kulit wajah aku. Satu-satunya yang kurang aku suka dari produk ini adalah botol kemasannya dari kaca, jadi kurang travel friendly, jadi saat travelling aku masukan beberapa ml essence ini ke botol spray kecil. 
  

Yang kedua adalah serum. Menurut aku serum adalah skincare paling penting karena biasanya kandungan zat aktifnya paling banyak dibandingkan essence dan moisturiser. Jadi, kalau kamu agak males ribet dengan step skincare yang kebanyakan, setelah toner kamu bisa langsung ke serum tanpa harus pakai essence. Serum yang aku pakai adalah Red Serum dari Skin & Lab. Aku suka banget sama serum ini karena aromanya fresh banget (karena bahan dasarnya buah-buahan) dan nggak bikin pusing. Texture nya juga ringan dan gampang diserap sama kulit. Efek brightening nya bisa dilihat dalam 2 minggu dengan pemakaian teratur dua kali sehari, pagi dan malam. Cara pakainya sama seperti essence, karena packagingnya pakai pipet, aku pakai 3-4 tetes untuk wajah dan leher, nggak perlu di tepuk-tepuk karena serumnya cepat diserap sama kulit, cukup di tunggu beberapa detik aja setelah itu pakai moisturiser. 

Saat di apply ke wajah, nggak ada oily feeling seperti essence yang sebelumnya, cuma terasa agar licin aja tapi setelah beberapa detik setelah terserap oleh kulit rasanya lembab dan kulit wajah terlihat cerah dan sehat, jadi menurut aku cocok untuk jenis kulit kering dan oily. 
Sama seperti essence sebelumnya, satu-satunya problem adalah packaging bool kaca yang membuat serum ini juga kurang travel friendly, jadi aku juga harus pakai container lain untuk produk ini kalau sedang travelling.


Yang ketiga adalah moisturiser atau pelembab. Karena aku pakai Red Serum, jadi untuk moisturiser nya aku pakai Red Cream nya Skin & Lab, karena kedua produk ini akan bekerja maksimal kalau dipakai bersamaan. Kalau Red Serum bahan dasarnya adalah buah-buahan yang melindungi kulit dari radikal bebas, Red Cream ini bahan dasarmya bunga mawar yang umumnya berfungsi menghaluskan dan jelas melembabkan kulit wajah. Aroma nya pun nggak bikin using karena cream ini aroma mawarnya soft banget. 
Cara pakainya, ambil sejumlah produk secukupnya pakai spatula (karena lebih higienis) lalu dioleskan ke wajah dan leher sambil di massage sedikit di area kening dan pipi. Setelah pakai cream ini kulit terlihat cerah, sehat dan radiance. 

Untuk packaging, cream ini travel friendly karena nggak terbuat dari kaca, jadi kalo travelling bisa dan aman dibawa kemana-mana.


Tiga produk yang aku review di sini range harganya hampir sama, sekitar IDR 250-400K, tergantung kamu beli dimana, karena beda toko online pasti harganya juga berbeda. Just make sure olshop yang jual itu trusted dan menjual produk original yaa.

back twist

Hollaaa!

It is Monday and yeayyy for a new blog post! So happy to be back to blogging world. Today, the ootd is about this super fun navy dress with back twist detail. I found this dress on instagram, it is an unbranded dress and you can easily find this dress in white, black, navy and also black and white color. I think the dress is quite versatile, you can dress up by wearing a pair of heels and to make it more casual you can wear sneakers. 
You can see that I replaced the original bag strap with a black and white bag strap. Why? Because it the original bag strap is too long for me, I am only 161cm. This bag is perfect for daily because even though it is in mini size but it holds a lot! Instantly become my fave bag since I got this bag.

Navy dress - unbranded
Black and white bag strap - Starofraywin

Korean Beauty Box by Sephora


Annyeonghaseyo!

Today I want to share with you about K-beauty! Yeay! So, for the last few months I've been really into Korean skincare and makeup. My skincare routine from cleansing foam, toner, serum, moisturizer and masks... are Korean brands and they're really good.

Naahh... Today, I will share about Korean makeup, I'll share about the skincare soon on another blog post :) So, I got a lovely set... Actually a box from Sephora and the theme is Korean Beauty Box. In the box I got 5 items, a sheet mask, foundation, brow pencil, single eye shadow and a lipstick. I was challenged to do a Korean makeup look using these makeup products and I can mix it using my other makeup products... I mean, sure I need an eye liner, mascara and blusher to complete the makeup look, right?



So, usually, for special occasion when I need to look super good and I want my makeup looks flawless and long lasting, I put on a sheet mask an hour before I apply my makeup. I heard some good reviews about Dr.Jart+'s sheet masks and this pore cleaner sheet mask is my first mask from this brand. I've tried this mask and it is so good. The mask is a black mask and after few minutes had the mask on my face I can feel warm feeling and I think it means that the essence is doing its job... Cleaning my pores! Ha!! I left the sheet mask for about 20-25 minutes and I can see my skin looks brighter and clearer. Thumbs up!


The next item is a foundation from Sephora collection brand, Sephora brightening and hydrating foundation and I got mine in the shade no.26 Peach. This foundation is really good, I love it. On my skin, it gives me a really natural dewy look. Dry skin girl like me looooooove this kind of foundation and I am not sure if it's also great on oily skin because it is super hydrating and it will make you super shiny after few hours.

The coverage is buildable from light to medium, so if you have some acne scars and dark spots you're still need to use concealer. For application I prefer using a flat top kabuki brush because using beauty blender will gives you more sheer coverage and even more dewier look. Packaging wise, I like it because it comes with a pump so I can control how many product I need and also it is more hygienic. The only con about this product is it only has 20ml of product in it. I need another 10ml of goodness! Seriously!

Oh, yes, to make you look more fresh, don't forget to apply blusher... My fave is cream blush from Make Up For Ever because cream product really appropriate for dewy makeup look.

After doing my face makeup, I do my eye brows. I got an automatic brow pencil from the brand Sarange called Jaljinae?! I think it means 'what's up?!' In English. Mine is in the shade dark brown.
The brow pencil has double ended, the pencil and a spoolie. Using this kind of brow pencil is quite tricky because once it is not sharp anymore it is a bit difficult to get a very precise line. But once you get used to it, your eye brow game is getting stronger :p The brow pencil is very waxy, I can see one or two brow hairs are falling every time I use it, that's how waxy it is. Make sure to brush the brows with the spoolie to get a natural brow look.


Next is single eye shadow from Sephora brand. I got mine in the shade no.81 Sunday Brunch, which is a very beautiful bronzy gold color. I am not a master of describing colors :p but the point is it is a lovely color. It is so pigmented and long lasting even without eye primer. I can not say anything bad about this product.


Well, for the makeup look, I also use a black shadow from Maybelline and a jumbo pencil in the shade yoghurt from Nyx for my under eye area. You know, Korean girls loves to apply shimmer products on their under eye area to make them look younger and cuter.


Next is lip product, another item from Sarange brand, the lipstick is in the shade no.4 Pink Violet. The first time I tried the lipstick... I don't like it, because it has gold shimmer in it and I felt like the shade didn't match my skin tone, but after few times I use it, I like it... Even  though it doesn't look good for my skin tone, but the formula is very comfortable, not drying on the lips and it smells lovely.


... and finally, the makeup look :)


I like to wear glasses, the huge one... so here are a couple photos with the glasses on :)


In my opinion, all of the products in the box are good and worth to try. You can find all the products on sephora.co.id ... 
And get free shipping if you spent more than IDR 200K! 
* I love free shipping! Lol *


Thank you for reading and have a good day everyone!
