DOAPJ DIY: Customized Scented Powder

Hello, lovelies~ I was stumbling the internet last week when I found a page about making your own scented powder. Being the ever-so-curious me, I decided to try it out for myself and... It works! So, here I am sharing it to you.

Let's gather out ingredients and materials, shall we?

If you don't like the feel of corn starch or are allergic to it, you can substitute it with regular unscented baby powder. Oh, if you don't have a cotton ball, you can use something similar, such as a cotton swab or cotton pads. 

Now, to the fun part. Mixing things up.

DOAPJ DIY : Oats Activate!

Hello, lovelies~ Oats are quite well-known in the skincare section as being an ingredient that can help moisturize even the most sensitive skin. However, did you know that it can aid in treating acne and blemishes, too? 

Its ability to soak up excess oil on the surface of the skin, makes it a great ingredient to be used in most skincare products. The texture of the oatmeal makes it the perfect natural exfoliator because it is gentle on the skin, but strong enough to remove any dead skin cells on the face. 

Oatmeal can also be used as a cleanser as they contain 'saponin', which is a soap-like ingredient that can help in removing dirt from the skin. Some sources say that saponins are antifungal in nature to protect the plant from any harm. However, I'm not sure if it is still an antifungal when it's already packaged in industrial boxes.

I like to use this oat cleanser in the morning because of its gentle nature in cleansing the skin. I just grabbed a handful of oats and add enough water just to form a paste. After massaging it for an entire minute, I rinsed my face and pat it dry. Love the smooth feeling of my face in the morning!

After reading all those beneficial properties of oatmeal, I bet you would think twice if you look at an oatmeal now. Today, I'm gonna share a face mask made from oats that can help treat your acne! Let's go!

5 Makeup Tips For Your Wedding Day

Sponsored post

Hello, lovelies~ It seems like it was only yesterday that I prepared for the wedding, one of the biggest days in my (and Mr. G's) life. I remembered the hustle and bustle of the prep, months before the big day. Picking out the wedding invitation card, going to wedding dress fittings, and fussing over the details of the decoration for the wedding venue. Although it sounded tiring, I didn't regret any moment of it.

For those brides-to-be who are reading this right now and perplexing on what step should you prepare next, allow me to be of an assistance to you. Note that I am not a professional wedding planner or wedding organizer, but I was a bride not so long ago. I can kinda understand your sudden urge to yell at someone, lol.

Having that said, I am here to share some things I learned during the wedding preparation process, makeup-wise, of course. Let's put aside all those other things (invitation, decoration, etc) and talk about things to remember when putting on makeup on your wedding day.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Line

Hello, lovelies~ Most of you must have experienced acne at least once in their lifetime, I assume. I know I have been an acne 'patient' for nearly half of my life. There are ways to treat it, ranging from beauty procedures to skincare routines at home. 

The Body Shop has a line that helps treat acne the natural way, using tea tree oil. It is already known that tea tree oil is one of the natural ways of treating blemishes. They have a variety of products, starting from cleansers all the way to BB cream. Here are some of them that were sent to me for review purposes.

Nichijou : Two Birthdays and an OOTD

Hello, lovelies~ Hope your week has been tremendous and fun considering yesterday is our country's Independence day. I didn't join in any contests that they usually have, but I still have fun nonetheless since last week. 

One of the reason being was Mr. G's birthday. I wanted to throw a party for him, but he wanted a simple dinner, just the two of us. So, we went to his favorite restaurant for roast duck and dim sum. I wish you all the best, my adorable baby bear~ ^_^ 

Another birthday last week is Mr. G's niece and we went to celebrate with her. We got her those rainbow loom thingies that you make yourself to form a bracelet. Unfortunately, I already wrap the present before realizing that I forgot to snap a pic of it. 

It was celebrated at a pizza outlet over at Kota Kasablanka. We took a little field trip over to the Southern parts of Jakarta, all the way from the North. Road Trip!
