Tony Moly Floria Whitening Sheet Mask Review

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here
Hello, lovelies~ Last week, I went to Taman Anggrek, a mall in West Jakarta, for a blog-related meeting. Anyway, while I was there, I stopped by the Tony Moly store to find that they were having a ' Buy 1, Get 1' promotion until the end of September. I bought a couple of things and this mask is one of them.

The sheet mask packet has a picture of a female model along with the whitening claim from the capsule essence from their Floria skincare line.

DOAPJ Brand Picks: Etude House

Hello, lovelies~ Yes, another new segment on this blog called 'DOAPJ Brand Picks', where I lists 5 products that I like most from a specific brand. I had this idea a while back when I was looking at Emily Noel's One Brand makeup tutorial and thought it was fun to list the things I like from one brand. To start off the first series, here are the things I like from Etude House. 

Moisture Cleansing Oil <- Click for detailed review
They have another variant which is meant for oily skin, called the Fresh Cleansing Oil. It takes off my makeup easily and rinses off without any greasy feeling on the skin. One of the things I like most from this product is the absence of mineral oil, petrolatum and alcohol.

Drawing Eyebrow Gray
With a triangular shape, this eyebrow product makes it easier for me to fill in my brows and shaping them. To top it off, this eyebrow product has its own spoolie, which makes it very travel-friendly because I don't need to bring a separate brush for my eyebrows. LOVE!

Dear Darling Neon Lip Tint in 02 <- Click for detailed review
Granted, I haven't tried out every single one of their lip tint, but this one was a definite hit. The color looks super bright in the tube, but it can be applied either sheer or bold.

Surprise Essence Stick Concealer <- Click for detailed review
Don't let the simple, toy-like packaging fool you. This little baby is crazy pigmented and easy to travel with since it is a stick concealer. No need to include it in the LAG regulation, yeah~

Cleansing Dream Cleansing Cream
Another product that works to take off any dirt and makeup when my skin was at its driest. It didn't dry out my skin after I rinsed it off. I use the one that is in the pink squeeze tube. That is one awesome product to use when my skin was flaking and very dry.
I don't have the product anymore, credits
Those are the things that I adore and have repurchased a few times from Etude House. If you have extremely dry skin, I recommend you try the Collagen Moistful essence and emulsion. It made my dry, flaky skin very moisturized. What are you favorites from Etude House? Let me know in the comments below and until then, I'll see you later~

P.S: These may not have worked for your skin, but it works on mine, 'kay? Full disclaimer here

Banilla Co CC Cream Natural Cover Review

Hello, lovelies~ I am still trying out a couple of CC cream to find one that is on par with my HG from Rachel K. When I saw that Banilla Co had a CC cream on sale, I bought one to try out. After a month, here is what I think of it. 

The CC cream comes in a white box that has all the description of the CC cream in Korean language. I don't really understand it, so sorry if I can't help you there.I can't say much for the ingredients because they’re all written in Korean language. Hopefully, I’m able to find one that is already translate to English.

Dine With Me: Santouka Hokkaido Ramen

Hello, lovelies~ It's been a while since I last posted about a 'Dine With Me' series, hasn't it? Well, you're in luck. Today, it's all about ramen in the newly opened store in Kelapa Gading Mall. You may have already heard about Santouka Hokkaido Ramen, but if you haven't, here it is. 

Located at Kelapa Gading Mall 3, Ground Floor, finding this ramen place is easy. It's across the BCA and Mandiri ATM of Kelapa Gading Mall 3. That should be really easy to ask the security guy should you fail to find the customer service.

SKIN&LAB Vitamin A Plus Lifting Cream Review

"Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion after trying it out. " Complete disclosure here

Hello, lovelies~ Antioxidants is mighty important for our healthy, be it consumed orally or topically via our skin. Sometimes it is a little hard to find antioxidant cream that contains vitamin A, C, or E. However, with SKIN&LAB, it is now easy to find the right antioxidant cream for your skin's needs. 

SKIN&LAB provides a wide range of antioxidant cream or vitamin cream that can help to cater to various skin problems one may have, such as photoaging, acne, or even dark circles under the eyes. Pretty convenient, right?

Not only that, you can also mix the vitamin cream to create your own concoction to suit the skin problem you may have. For example, vitamin C + vitamin E makes a great antioxidant combination to brighten and moisturize the skin! All you have to do is combined both cream and apply like you would a normal moisturizer.

A couple of weeks ago, the WISH company team sent me a tube of SKIN&LAB Vitamin A to try. Thank you, guys~ I have already tried the small sample that they gave me a few months ago, so I know how it's going to be on my face. Here is what I think of the cream after 2 weeks of use.

Hello, lovelies~ Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation has finally reached Indonesia! Yeay? I know it's been out in the States for a long time, but at least they've reached our shore, Indonesian shore to be exact. I'm sure if you followed my instagram, you would have already known by now. Anyway, I bought mine in Singapore about a month ago, which I featured in this haul post, and now I'm gonna let you know what I think about it.

Ask DOAPJ: Acne Scars and Derma Roller

Hello, lovelies~ Apologies for not posting a 'ASK DOAPJ' segment last week, thing gotten out of hand and I had to deal with them first hand. However, I have time this week, so I am going to publish one of the questions from you. Since this question is in Indonesian, I am going to reply in the same language, but relax, there is a translate button on the right, so just click it to read it in your preferred language. This week it is from Dilla and she says,

"hai cici.. makasih ya udah sempetin bikin section Q&A seperti ini.. membantu banget! aku punya beberapa scar alias kulit yang bolong-bolong di sekitar area pipi karena dulu sempat jerawatan parah karna stress. nah aku denger-denger ada alat namanya derma roller yang bisa ngilangin scar macam ini. menurut cici derma roller aman gak ya? terus apakah di usia 22 tahun masih ada harapan scar ku bakal menipis dan hilang kalau rajin di exfoliate? makasih cici ^_^ GBU~" - Dilla

Pantene Protect and Care Leave On Treatment Review

Hello, lovelies~ A couple of weeks ago, I posted a review on Lucido L that works for the dry ends of my hair, but as a product junkie, I'm still looking for other products that performs the same (or even better) for comparison. I found a leave in treatment from Pantene that promises to give protection and care against damage for the hair.

Wardah Exclusive Lipstick Review

Hello, lovelies~ For those residing in Indonesia, Wardah must already be familiar to you. I am a fan of their lightening toner until now, so I want to give their lipsticks a try. For only Rp 30,000 (USD 3.00) a piece, I grabbed four shades. ^_^

The lipstick came with a separate green box with all the information written on it. It has a small window at the bottom to ensure the right shade number that the customers want. I don't know about you, but I always prefer my products to come in a separate box because it felt special, lol. Maybe it's just me.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Powder Review

Hello, lovelies~ As you may have already known because I can be like a broken record most of the times, I have a oily skin. Not just on the T-zone, but all over my face. I need to set my base makeup to keep my face shine free. This is a very long overdue review, but here it is.
