[AM Skincare Routine]
Happy Saturday friends 🙌🏼😃 hope you all are having a great weekend!
Today I finally decided to try the Dr Oracle 21;Stay A-thera peeling stick that I won in a giveaway from @kbeautybyjinhee and @finino in December. The lovely Nora aka @finino I also believe is the swedish distrubutor of this this product 👌
The peeling stick is from @droracle_official and looks like a big q-tip/cotton swab. It's drenched in a mix of 6% of AHA + BHA, bamboo water, tea tree oil and is suitable for all skin types. It's especially great for people with sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate my skin at all.
So what's my first impression of this product then? Well, I have to say I'm actually really impressed with it and I could actually see some results right away. My skin feel so smooth, glowy and hydrated and I didn't get that dry feeling that many exfoliators sometimes can give me. I'm really looking forward to see the results after I've tried it a few more times (after this I have 14 left to try). I like the idea of a stick that is alreay soaked in product and that is easy to bring with me when I travel.
So happy I got the chance to try this product 😍😄

Using the daily microfoliant again and I like how clean it makes my skin feel👌 Also, since I probably won't leave the house today I chose the cream from Dr.Jart+ that has no SPF. It is pretty moisturizing but so lightweight, with a gel like consistency. I might have to add an oil on top though since my skin needs a little extra during the winter. ❄

💁Product : COSRX Oil-free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap
I used think moisturizer is not necessary (I know it’s stupid, hold your judgements please 👻). I learned it the hard way when one day I found dry patches all over my skin (which never happenned on my normal to oily skin). I later figured that the only moisturizing product I use is my COSRX Advanced 96 Snail Mucin (reviews coming up!) and the rest are my acne-fighting products. Of course it's not hydrating enough! Then I see this reviewed by @gothamista (well COSRX and Renée’s judgement are two things i trust the most on skincare) so I purchased this right away. Once I put it on my face, I fell in love. The texture is so light, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. The hydration lasts all day, and my skin feels so bouncy and soft afterwards I’m not even kidding. The second day I use this, my dry patches are gone. So a bit of advice, don’t make the same mistake I made. Go get this one and moisturize! ---------------------------------------------------- Aku sempet mikir kalo moisturizer itu nggak terlalu penting (hehe, jangan dijudge please👻). Baru deh aku kena batunya waktu tiba-tiba kulit berasa kering dan ngelupas (sama sekali nggak pernah kejadian sebelumnya di kulit aku yang normal-berminyak). Setelah itu aku baru sadar kalo satu-satunya produk yang melembabkan yang lagi aku pakai itu COSRX Advanced 96 Snail Mucin (review nyusul ya...) sisanya produk anti jerawat semua. Jelas aja nggak cukup! Setelah itu aku ngeliat produk ini di review @gothamista (pokoknya COSRX sama reviewnya Renée itu dua hal yang paling aku percaya deh kalo berkaitan sama skincare) jadi langsung deh aku beli. Begitu ku coba pake, aku langsung jatuh cinta... duh dasar ya emang COSRX. Teksturnya ringan, nyerapnya cepet, dan lembabnya itu berasa seharian, udah gitu kulit jadi berasa lebih kenyal dan halus setelah pake ini. Hari ke-dua setelah pake ini, kulit ngelupasnya langsung pada hilang dong... Jadi ya, ini nasehat sedikit buat kalian, jengan bikin kesalahan yang sama kayak aku... Beli aja moisturizer ini dan SELALU biasain pakai pelembab!

👩 Product: Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid
I used to feel "meh" about this one, but continue to use it because 1) I feel like I have to (it is pretty expensive), 2) ladies in reddit keep raving about them. 3) it has #ceramides , which is a matter that makes babies's skin feels super soft and I want them okay. Thank God I chose to keep using them because it really helps keeping my skin plump and lifted. A great long term assistant for those who have skins that often dull or aged, or #dehydrated . They also works well to keep your eyes area hydrated --it's non irritating. // Use: Daily, once, mostly PM for me, 1-2 drop for face and neck. It has this herbal fragrants that will dissipate once it is applied to the skin. Recommend to a friend? Yes, please. It worth the money as it lasts sooo long. ----------------------------------------
Aku sering banget liat produk ini dipuji-puji di berbagai forum kecantikan gitu, makanya iseng-iseng memberanikan beli. Waktu awal-awal pake kayak ga ada efeknya gitu sih, tapi aku terusin soalnya 1) Aku ngerasa harus tetep pakai kalo ga rugi udah keluar duit banyak, 2) banyak banget yang bilang bagus, 3) Ini ada kandungan ceramides nya yang dipercaya merupakan zat yang bikin kulit bayi alus-alus gitu. Syukurlah aku mutusin pake terus dan beneran deh berasa kulit lebih kenyal dan alus gitu. Ini bagus banget sih buat yang kulitnya dehidrasi atau yang udah mulai ada kerutan. Aku juga suka pake ini di mata, soalnya ga bikin iritasi sama sekali
Cara pakai: Tiap hari, sekali, tapi bisa lebih sih tergantung kondisi kulit juga, 1-2 tetes aja cukup banget kalo kulit normal-berminyak. Ini ada wangi herbalnya gitu yaa, tapi buat aku sih ga ganggu sama sekali soalnya cepet ilang juga wanginya hehe
Rekomen? Iya banget, jangan takut sama harganya yang kesannya agak mahal, ini tahannya lama banget bisa 6 bulan lebih :) Purchased this at: @sephoraidn
How come when I go for a bronzed look, my skin goes from "a day in the sun" to "someone got drunk and slept by the shore for two days" with just one brush stroke?

💁 Product : Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop
This is my go to product to deal with acne marks. As you can see I’m almost on the bottom of this one 😭💔 Left on it's own, my marks can last for months, but with this, it’s faded in a matter of weeks. The concentration of the vitamin C itself is only 5% which might seem unpromising, but It’s the perfect concentration to be effective without sensitizing to the skin. Funnily, the top ingredients in this product are similar to Mineral Botanica Acne Care Serum: Water, Propylene Glycol, and Ascorbic Acid (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid in Mineral Botanica, both are vitamin C derivative). But while the rest of ingredients in Mineral Botanica have hydration purposes, this one is packed with various fruit extracts as antioxidant. I use it directly after toner by taping three to four drops all over my face. However, you have to ALWAYS make sure to keep this away from sunlight because it can easily turn yellow and lost it’s potency. Overall, I ❤❤❤ this product!!! ------------------------------------
Ini sih produk andalan untuk ngilangin bekas jerawat. Tuh, liat kan... udah hampir abis 😭💔 Kalau dibiarin aja, bekas jerawatku bisa nggak hilang sampai berbulan-bulan, tapi dengan produk ini beberapa minggu aja udah memudar. Konsentrasi vitamin C nya sendiri cuma 5%, kayaknya nggak menjanjikan ya... tapi 5% itu perfect buat bikin vitamin C nya efektif tanpa bikin kulit jadi sensitif. Lucunya... bahan utama dari produk ini ternyata sama kayak Mineral Botanica Acne Serum: Air, Propylene Glycol, dan Ascorbic Acid (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid di Mineral Botanica, dua-duanya turunan vitamin C). Tapi kalo bahan-bahan lain di Mineral Botanica lebih untuk melembabkan, produk ini punya banyak kandungan ekstrak buah-buahan untuk antioksidan. Aku biasanya pake ini langsung setelah toner meresap, caranya tetesin 3-4 tetes, lalu ditepuk-tepuk ke seluruh wajah. Tapi, ada saran nih: SELALU simpan serum ini di tempat yang sejuk dan jauh dari matahari, karena kalo nggak dia bisa berubah jd kuning & efeknya berkurang. Pokoknya aku ❤❤❤ produk ini dan aku rekomen bgt buat yang mau nyoba serum vitamin C.

This morning at my vanity featuring some new @deciem #TheOrdinary products in my morning routine. I like to spot treat with the salicylic acid whenever I have a breakout, but the Vitamin C treatment is great for every (or every other) day use to help fight and prevent signs of aging and discoloration.
💁 Product : Mineral Botanica Acne Care Serum
Wooohooo who’s excited for our first local skincare review?!?!? 🇮🇩🇮🇩(I am!!) 🙌 This was a panicked purchase from the drugstore when I needed something to immediately treat my breakouts. I was not even into the whole skincare game back then so I didn’t pay attention to the ingredients. But the day after I used this, I felt like my breakout was calmed. After some ‘research’ I can tell that it’s due to some great ingredients packed inside this serum like Glycerin, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Alpha Arbutin, and Aloe Barbadensis Extract (Pssst... I just figured that the ingredients turns out to be quite similar to one more expensive Korean skincare product I own. Stay tuned for the product review!). Now I’m already on my 4th bottle and will keep repurchasing it. However, literally no one (I know) has ever talked about this. So yes, I would totally recommend this to a friend as this product had done me proud for local skincare product. --------------------------------------------------Wooohooo selalu excited deh kalo nemu skincare lokal kece!🇮🇩🇮🇩🙌 padahal dulu ini belinya di apotek waktu lagi panik-paniknya jerawatan. Waktu itu aku bahkan belum mainan skin care, jadi ingredients nya apa juga nggak ku perhatiin. Tapiiii sehari setelah dipakai, aku ngerasa segala jerawat di muka langsung mereda. Setelah cari-cari tahu sedikit, ternyata serum ini mengandung banyak ingredients yang oke banget kayak Glycerin, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Alpha Arbutin, & Aloe Barbadensis Extract (Pssst... dan ternyata aku baru tahu kalo komposisinya hampir sama kayak salah satu skincare korea yang lebih mahal lho... pantengin terus timeline untuk reviewnya) Sekarang ini udah botol ke-empat dan kayaknya aku akan beli lagi. Tapi ya, aku kok belum pernah denger ada orang (yang aku tahu) ngomongin tentang serum ini. Jadi jelas aku akan rekomendasiin ke orang-irang terdekat, karena menurutku ini salah satu produk skin care lokal yang bikin bangga.

👩 Product: Avene Tres Haute Protection
I was running out of #sunscreen and weirdly have this urge to try something new, so I bought this on the spot without thinking twice (read: google for reviews). Oh how I need to learned to not do that again! This one is a mineral sunscreen that leaves white-as-paper cast on skin and that is a definite disaster for someone with a medium to tan skin tone like me. It also has this dry finish that makes it uncomfortable to layer make up on top, so I think I need to shift my skincare + makeup regimen if I'm going to use this on daily basis. // Recommend? Only if you have pale skin --------------------------------------------- .
Suatu hari pas aku lagi jalan-jalan di mall, aku nemuin produk ini di sebuah drug store gitu. Kebetulan sunscreen yang sedang aku pakai sudah mau habis, dan aku kayak sok tau gitu taunya semua produk Avene bagus-bagus. Jadi deh, aku langsung beli ini ga pake mikir 2 kali atau google reviewnya dulu. Nah aku menyesal banget sih ga liat-liat reviewnya dulu :( Sunscreen ini hasilnya putih banget, seputih krayon, dan ga cocok buat kulit aku yang termasuk kuning langsat. Terus pas dipake juga jadi kering gitu hasilnya, jadi ga enak untuk dipakai sebelum pakai make up, kecuali kalo mau ubah skin care sebelumnya jadi super extra melembapkan gitu.
Aku ga terlalu rekomendasiin sih kecuali kulit kamu yang putih banget. Ini aku belinya di @apotekcentury sekitar Rp 300ribuan

1️⃣ Lancer The Cleanse 2️⃣ Lancer The Polish 3️⃣ Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum 4️⃣ Drunk Elephant Marula Oil 5️⃣ Dr Jart+ Water Drop Moisturizer. I bought these minis to try out, but what will I repurchase? Lancer The Polish Dr Jart+ Water Drop (I even like it better than Tatcha Water Cream, and it's half the price). It's not that I didn't like the others, I just feel for their price point, I have others that I like better🎀🎀 #lancerskincare#drunkelephant#drjart @drlancerrx @drunkelephantskincare @drjart #seriousskincare#aesthetician#amskincareroutine

💁 Product: Clinique All Abuout Eyes
Hello! It's 💁! To be honest, this is the first time I have a product specifically for my under eyes. I wouldn’t have bought this if I am not working on the same building as Clinique’s under-license company which happenned to held a big bazaar on my building. The packaging is extremely pretty and the product itself is quite nice. It has a gel-like texture which absorbs quickly and feels really soft and hydrating under my eye. While I enjoy using this and it does feel comfortable, i didn’t find that that it reduces the circle and puffs like it claimed to be. So, I might recommend this ONLY to those who has relatively non-problematic under eye situtation. As for me, I’ll just enjoy this while it lasts. ------------------------------------------------
Hello! 💁 di sini! Sejujurnya ya, baru kali ini aku beli produk khusus untuk bawah mata. Ini juga kayaknya nggak akan aku beli kalo aku nggak kerja satu gedung sama perusahaan under-license nya Clinique dan mereka kebetulan ngadain Bazaar gede-gedean. Kemasannya sih cantiiik banget ya, dan produknya juga lumayan. Teksturnya kayak gel yang gampang nyerap dan kalo dipake tuh rasanya lembut dan melembabkan banget untuk di bawah mata. Walaupun sejauh ini aku suka pake ini dan emang rasanya nyaman banget, aku sih belum lihat efek ngilangin lingkaran atau bengkak di bawah mata seperti klaimnya dia. Jadi mungkin aku akan rekomendasiin ini HANYA ke orang-orang yang nggak punya masalah di bagian bawah mata. Kalo aku sendiri... yah selagi produknya ada nikmatin aja lah ya... Price : IDR 150.000 (for a package of 7 sample-sized items)

👩Product: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 2%
Hello, it's Fra here and I would like to kick off this account for documenting our skincare journey 💆♀️☄☄ I'm on my 6th bottle with this serum from @deciem! Since the first few days of using, I noticed that my face produce less oil and also my skin gets a lot more even. Perhaps, it's the added zinc, but I could also say I have lesser pimples even when I'm on my PMS. This is worthy a cult status. // Use: Daily, AM-PM, although I sometimes switch with Vit C in the morning. 3-4 drops for the whole face + neck. It smells like nothing, but it leaves a certain stickiness/tightness on the skin after use. // Recommend to a friend? Infinite yes, especially for those with a skin condition like mine.
--------------------------------------------------- Hai, di post pertama ini aku mau review soal serum favorit aku ini nih.
Jadi ceritanya, pas masih sekolah aku sering panas-panasan yang bikin kulit aku belang. Plusss, kulit aku dasarnya berminyak, jadi deh aku kebiasaan nutupin mukaku pake make up. Nah, makasih banget sama serum ini, langsung dari pertama pakai tuh kulit aku keliatan jadi lebih rata warnanya dan ga berminyak lagi sekarang. Terus, mungkin karena dia ada zinc nya juga, aku juga jadi jarang banget jerawatan sih, kalo pun pas PMS paling kecil banget gitu. Sekarang lebih pede ga pake make up kemana-mana 😊 💆♀️: tiap hari, 2 kali sehari, aku pake 3-4 tetes untuk muka dan leher aku. Ini ga ada bau sama sekali ya, jadi enak banget dipakenya, paling ada rasa lengket sedikit tapi udah sih bisa ditimpa moisturizer lagi. Aku rekomen banget yaa produknya buat kamu yang oily, belang, dan gampang jerawatan, secara ini bener-bener aku suka banget dan yang di foto ini udah botol aku yang keenam loh! 📷: Dalam foto: kepunyaanku sendiri dibelikan teman yang buka jastip di Korea, kamu bisa menemukan ini di toko-toko IG atau Shopee mulai sekitar +- 170K IDR
Saturday 13 Jan 2018 #amskincareroutine
Still struggling to get my face and neck back to normal. 🙁 Most of the bumps got red and flaky and my skin is still rough and uneven in touch which makes me think that it's a kind of congestion going up to the surface. If that is the case I can take it at full and I'd be happy if this is actually what's going on. The most curious part of it all is that I don't feel my skin dehydrated which a kind of proves that I've chosen the right products in my efforts to help it heal. This morning it even had a kind of dewiness to it despite the superficial damage which is quite satusfactory too. What bothers me most is the condition of my neck where the bumps are maddeningly itchy which is why I made it worse by helplessly scratching it most of the time (I admit my idiotic fault 🙈). Now I swagger around with big disgusting rough red spots on my neck. And my neck was something I was proud of before, my goodness! 😭 .
So, the morning started with a pleasant mixture of a gentle cleanser and a gentle finely milled powder exfoliant to get rid of any flakes. After cleansing I took a teaspoon of natural honey known for its purifying and healing properties and spread it all over the face and the neck. After 20 minutes I rinsed it off and my skin was so soft and nice for a troubled skin! It looked clean and radiant too so I'm having more honey tomorrow👌 Then followed with a rich hydrating mist, my skin savior AlphaH Vit E (I'm running out of the big 50 ml bottle and I'm like 😱) and a mixture of the TO Resveratrol and the Nude Rescue oil. So far, so good. .
Day 11 of #abnewyearstashchallenge - EYE CARE-
This is how I take care of my eyes at this moment. I usually don't use more than one eye cream at a time but I do love eye patches. I see a much faster effect after them, which of course is temporary but It may be a savior in the morning after a long night.
So this is my tiny stash of eye care products and I will try to describe each one a little bit.
✨@versoskincare Super Eye Serum. I use this one for almost a month and don't have yet a strong opinion to make a review. Ingredients: High concentration of Retinol 8 reduces fine lines, wrinkles and pigment spots. Turmenic - powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from damaging effect of the sun, toxins and pollution. Peptides - to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
✨@filorga.se Optim Eye Patches.
It's a box with 8 patches that claim to remove dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. Ingredients: Polysaccharide - helps restructure the blood capillaries to lighten dark circles. Witch Hazel + Cornflower - decongests, soothes and reduces eye bags. Black Carrageenan gel smooths and lifts the eye area. I do see a noticeable effect after using them but I don't like the patch itself. It's thick and slides easily, so I only use them laying down. ✨@dermalogica_sverige Stress Positive Eye Lift. Received this one in the @skincityofficial beauty bag. (They definitely know how to make a nice and useful beauty bag). This cream-gel promises to lift, energise, brightens and de-puffs tired eyes. It contains sea water extract and Arctic algae. I use this one as an eye mask at night. .
🌧MORNIN’ Rainy Thursday☔️
Had a bit of time so I decided to break open one of my favorite sheet mask: @skinfoodmy Hydro Fitting Snail Mask.
If you suffer from dry skin, this mask may be your saviour. It was mine for awhile and a favorite to use inflight✈️.
Much of 2017 was about skin, so today, I can safely say that paid off👏🏽👏🏽
My skin is more normal now, not so temperamental and dry, and in pretty good condition.
So I don’t mask as often, and pare down products that are in rotation. I still like to try different products though, and my skin now has little to no reaction when I do so🎉.
Here are the products I used for my morning routine today:
🌹 @whamisaskincare Organic Flowers Toner (Original). Did these guys close down in MY🇲🇾? I had to get this online, but the hype is real, and so is the price💸! I am keen on other products from this brand but no one seemed to be bringing this in😕.
🌹 @skinfoodmy Hydro Fitting Snail Mask Sheet. Love😍. But this does contain alcohol and fragrance (I prefer my skincare fragrance-free or at least fragranced with essential oils, not synthetics). My skin feels ver-ry hydrated.
🌹 @deciem TheOrdinary Buffet. I like this water-based anti-aging serum, but I don’t know if I like it enough to repurchase 🤔...
🌹 @ilpuronatural Regenerating Face Cream. Have used this consistently for years. My go-to daytime moisturizer💕
🌹 @cerave Eye Repair Cream. Not greasy or heavy. Works well under makeup but I don’t see it doing anything special. Mehh. Not a repurchase.
🌹 #cnplaboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42. Not heavy or greasy, no fragrance or alcohol. A bit drying on me. It’s OK. There are better and cheaper ones.
Enjoy your Thursday!🌷
