[EAYWORDS] Steps Away



Thinking of yourself and looking at it on the mirror, what do you see? All the things you regret having? All the asymmetrical that you find out clinging on your body?

That's totally okay and normal. All people must've felt that way too. But be quick to move on. Be quick to point out the motivation to the purpose that you are working on.

You can read someone's inspiring story and be amazed and thinking you want to create a beautiful story of your life, too. But isn't every inspiring story has its hardest part too? Maybe you're just steps away to finish that part! And the pretty things are coming all the way to you.

Be nice to yourself, be enthusiastic to meet your dreams.

[BEAUTY] Biore UV Aqua Rich SPF 50+/PA++++

BIORE UV AQUA RICH REVIEW

Hi girls! So in this blog is something so great that I just found.. it’s a skin care that works and suitable for my skin! It is from the well-known skin care brand in Indonesia: Biore. And it is.. Biore UV Aqua Rich.


The Packaging
I love the size of the packaging, which is able to carry on everywhere, quite travel sized. And I love the glossy texture that makes it look more lavish. And the blue color is quite light and calm, not too vibrant or high saturated, that makes it look elegant too!


The Texture
At the first glimpse I thought it’s just another sunscreen products, but when I opened the tube and placed it on my hand, I could already mention that I’m gonna love it as I love the formulation and the texture. Unlike the other anti UV products, it is more watery, which is not sticky at all.


My Experience
After that, I tried to apply it on my face and I can say that my skin feels smooth and I love the smell, it’s a calming and natural kind of smell. I applied it on my face and my neck after that. After I used it a day in outdoor, I could feel that even in strong sunlight, my skin didn’t get any darker or any sunburnt at all. I was quite shocked because it is quite amazing how it has a light texture but functions so great.
Thought it was just a cliché, I googled it, search for some reviews from youtubers and bloggers and wow! They all feel the same way to this products. The texture is light but it functions very well to protect the skin from the sunlight as Biore UV Aqua Rich also has SPF 50+/PA++++ so you don’t have to worry to go out when sun comes up.
You should try! Maybe it would be your holy grail, too!

[EVENT] Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water


Hi loves! How are you? So here is me, I’m coming back with something I want to share to you guys. Guess what?


So, last month I got a chance to attend the event from NAOS, the company of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water. Yup, the most famous Micellar Water as it is the first micellar water in the world. It is such a very inspiring one, with dr. Shannaz and dr. Adhi as the speakers.


After some greetings from Bioderma Team, the event is started with a presentation about sensitive skin definition, what causes it, and also the statistics data of people who have sensitive skin which made us know that the percentage of people who have sensitive skin continues to increase. And that’s why everybody needs the right solution for it.




From the presentation, I began to know that NAOS, which was found by Jean Noel Thorel (Biologist Pharmacist) has operated in more than 100 countries. NAOS also becomes one of the largest beauty companies in the world which always develop their products through ecobiology.

Ecobiology sees the skin as an ecosystem that always adapts and interacts with the environment, where the natural condition and mechanism should be maintained well. Maintaining the skin well means knowing the right products to use and not taking too much unneeded skin care products.

Aurelie Guyoux, the Global Research and Innovation Director of NAOS explains us that Bioderma Sensibio H2O uses an ecological approach that views skin as a smart but vulnerable ecosystem. It is important to pick your skin care carefully, as skin care is like ‘the food’ to our body. It is very crucial to learn about the ingredients that our skin needs or doesn’t need.

Dr. Shannaz said that the water alone is not enough to clean all dirt in our skin, especially metals, the fat that clog the pores, especially the pigment material that is used in most makeup products.     

From her explanation, I got to know that Bioderma Sensibio H2O is playing an important role to our sensitive skin, as it is really safe for every sensitive skin types. How it works is also amazing. Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water can remove makeup for effectively for 99%, remove small particles for 98%, and also cleanse heavy metals for 78%. Isn’t that awesome?

“There are so many people that has sensitive skin nowadays. The consultation when they meet the dermatologist is mostly about the acne prone and sensitive skin that they have. And the main cause of it is the overused of skin care products or using the makeup with the ingredients that is not suitable for their skin. Many people are struggling with their acnes, and that doesn’t get any better because they always try new skin care products without really knowing the ingredients in it and if it is suitable for their skin, which causes the skin to break out again and again”, said Dr. Adhimukti T. Sampurna (Dermatologist and Medical Director of Bamed Healthcare

From their explanations, we know that we should be very careful with our skin. Choose the cleansing products that is mild and moisturizes the skin, just like Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water.


Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water contains highly purified water, the water has also been through the purification stage with 5.5 pH biological level. Beside that, one of the ingredients is biomimentic, which is the kind of lipid that our skin has. Therefore, those ingredients won’t make a contradiction to our skin. I think, that’s why Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water becomes the best micellar water even that there are so many other micellar water brands now.

 


Anyway, you can use Bioderma not only for cleansing your makeup, but also as toner before you apply your makeup, as it calms the skin as well.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O has three types: the Sensibio H2O (Pink) for sensitive skin, Hydrabio H2O (Blue) for dehydrated skin, and Sebium H2O (Green) for combination and oily skin. So, basically, everyone can use it.


So, what are you waiting now? Just try and prove how it works to the skin!

[BEAUTY] Bio-Oil Event and Product Review

It always gives me an amazing feeling to be invited to the event of the brand that I already use for a long time. And this time, I was invited to Bio Oil Event and it’s such a pleasure that I knew that the event would be a fun, and informative one. So here are the series ot the stories!

Welcomed with a pretty décor with the touch of white and orange, it just feels comfortable to sit for the next hours. They have placed our table name tag so that we could find out seat easily.
Just as I took my seat, I began to take pictures of the ambience, and after that, of course, having some shots of myself. Here are the results.


Anyway, the sessions are really great. I love how I got some useful information about the skin, starting from what is the true definition of healthy skin, how to differentiate skin types and skin condition. Here is what I got from the dermatologist:
     1. Skin Types
Skin Type is a congenital factor. From the day you were born until you grow up, your skin type will always be like that. There’s no such condition where your skin type is changing suddenly (for example: feeling like you have normal skin type but lately you think it has changed to dry). If you have normal skin type, it will always be. The condition where you feel that your skin is dry is actually the dehydrated skin condition that you are having.
     2. Skin Condition
Skin condition is caused by many factors, the environment, weather, how you treat your skin from outside and inside, etc. For example if you are working full time in a room with AC, and you rarely drink water, you also don’t use any skin care, your skin will feel dry. But it doesn’t mean it becomes dry skin, it is just dehydrated.
From these cases, we could draw a conclusion that dry skin is about the skin type since you were born, because your skin has little oil content, and dehydrated skin is about the skin condition in which you have little water content in your body and your skin.



THE PRODUCT
With all the understandings, let’s move on to the product review to know how Bio Oil solves those problems.

Packaging
Comes in 4 size of packages, it would be really easy for you to just pick the size that you need. If the area that you would apply Bio Oil is quite small and you think it just will need not really much of Bio Oil, you can pick the smallest size, and vice versa.

Function
If you think Bio Oil is just for stretch marks, you should’ve known more about this holy grail product. Truth is, it has so many functions as mentioned below:
1.    1. Disguise the scars
It can be applied for either old scars or new scars
2.    2. Stretch Marks
It helps to reduce the possibility of forming stretch marks during pregnancy,
rapid growth in adolescence, weight gain, and also helps disguise the existing stretch marks.
3.    3. Uneven Skin Tone
It helps to disguise the pigmentation stains that is cause by hormonal fluctuations, brightening skin care products, or excessive sun exposure.
4.    4. Skin Aging
It helps to smoothen and treat signs of aging of the skin and wrinkles both on the face and body.
5.    5. Dry Skin
It helps to restore the skin's natural oils, which are lost by factors such as extreme weather, water with high chemical content, too often soaking, and dry skin due to heater or air conditioner (AC).
Anyway, those are all that I wanna share to you this time, guys. Thank you so much for reading, let’s become a blog friend of mine. See you later! (with bonus photo in closing)

[STAYCATION] HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS JAKARTA PLUIT CITYGATE - Hotel Review



It’s pretty amazing when you can combine your passion with your work. Who agree? As a youtuber and blogger, I enjoy every phase of this journey. That doesn’t mean that I have achieved everything on the lists, but at least I have been in the middle of the journey. Be grateful with what you’re working on, yet don’t ever feel enough that you always want to achieve more, right?
Anyway, talking about how I enjoy living my passion, one of the things that I enjoy is staycation. And this time, through this blog, I’m gonna share my first staycation in Jakarta, that is a staycation in Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Pluit Citygate, a three-star hotel in North Jakarta.
Let’s just jump to the review session :D

THE BEDROOM
The first time I bumped to the bedroom I feel it’s the type of a hotel bedroom that I like. It’s clean, everything is neat and the design is quite minimalist. Anyway, I love their floor-to-ceiling window! There aren’t many 3-star hotels that offer this kind of window, right? Anyway, the bellboy is quite responsive too! As soon as I request something, they would come in around 5 minutes.

THE BATHROOM
The bathroom is quite simple, actually. The toiletries are also standard but there is a sign that says “You can always have more (of toiletries) that caught my attention. I mean, they offer us to ask for more if we need it. Doesn’t that sound like a nice offering? Anyway there is a flexible hanger that also caught my attention. You can hang your clothes while taking a shower there.

THE BREAKFAST
The breakfast main menu is quite ok; it was a standard breakfast but with good quality. I mean they all taste nice. The fried rice, fried noodle, chicken, dory, and etc taste good.
However, the side menu is not standard. They have very good croissants! And also, they have other kind of side menu, for example bread pudding (although it was served lukewarm, which made it tastes not that nice, in my opinion), and also some breads, and cereals. The cereals aren’t just koko krunch or cornflakes, there are various types of it which made us curious to try one by one.
Who are coffee lovers here? You might love it that they have a grinding machine! It’s quite rare, a 3-star hotel usually will just provide you with instant coffee.

FACILITIES
They have a gym room that is well-maintained, I can see how everything is neat and clean. And I love the lighting as the sunlight can enter the room too. The equipment is quite complete for a work out during a stay, like there are some dumbbells, treadmills, and others.
Across the gym is a laundry room. I was quite shocked that they have coin laundry machines. That would ease the hotel occupants, right? And also, they have steam iron! I never tried it before until my husband and I tried to browse about it and we managed to do it, in the end!

ACCESS TO THE MALL
If you don’t know yet, Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Pluit Citygate is actually located inside Emporium Pluit Mall, so, of course, we can directly access the mall. It took 2 kind of elevators but it’s quite easy, approximately 10 minutes to walk to the mall. And by the way, they also have a partnership with the restaurants in the mall, so you can just order their foods and the waiter would just come to the hotel, to deliver your food. In short, it’s quite easy to get the food you want as Emporium Pluit Mall is quite a complete mall
Anyway, that’s all the review of Holiday In Express Jakarta Pluit Citygate. I hope it could be a nice info for you who are looking for a hotel to stay in Jakarta. Don’t forget to watch the video on my Youtube Channel! Thank you for reading! See you on the next blog!

[BEAUTY] BRUNBRUN Heated Eyelash Curler


”Everyone is born different”. We’ve heard that a lot and yet, we still complain so much. But as I grew up, I started to realize that if there is just one type of color in this world, how boring that could be. So ya, just take differences as uniqueness, okay?
Something unique that I got is my eyelashes! It’s kind of going down and it’s not just that – it’s pretty hard for people, including me just to make it curled up; even the make-up artists. Even that those MUAs and I have tried some different curler brands, it still doesn’t work out.
Until I found this product, uhm and by the way this blog is purely not sponsored. I bought the product myself.
Here it is, the heated eyelash curler from Brun Brun Paris.

THE PRODUCT

Even though maybe we are a little bit worried about the heat – perhaps wondering If it could harm our eyes or not, the heat is actually very safe as it feels just warm, not hot at all. You can feel it by putting your finger there, even after some seconds, it won’t hurt at all. The heated clamp part is also coated with silicone material, which is a very good isolator, as the reason that the heat doesn’t feel too hot.
That’s why, it is very safe as eyelashes are very near to the eyes. But, if you wear contact lens, I recommend you to use this before you wear your contact lens because as I experienced myself, the eyes would feel very dry if you wear contact lens first.

It uses 2 AAA batteries.





BEFORE

Let’s take a look to my eyelashes condition before using the heated eyelash curler.




AFTER
And taa-daa! You can see it curled up perfectly now (no mascara at all). Even it may seem just an ordinary things to some people, it is not for me. This is the newest, one of the greatest findings in my life! Haha.

Anyway, that’s all for today's blog. Thanks for bearing up with me. I hope you enjoy! See ya later! ;)

[BEAUTY] NARUKO Skin Care Review


Hey everyone! Since it's still early January, I just wanna say "Happy New Year!” May you take this year seriously, to look after progress by progress till you find the better you in each day! xoxo.
Anyway, if you know that my skin is quite dry and sensitive (acne prone at the same time; which is acne-prone skin usually comes with oily skin), of course it is hard for me to find the skin care which is safe for my skin.
Let me introduce you to the brand created by a famous Taiwan Beauty Guru; called Niu Er. The brand name is NARUKO.


So I got this skin care from them (they just gave me theirs without demanding anything from me) and after I have tried for some weeks, I decided to write a blog about it even that they don’t ask. But.. why?
Let’s go straight to the review of each product.

1. NARUKO - Rose & Botanic HA (Aqua Cubic Foaming Wash EX)
I love the texture of it. This is not so foamy and this is hydrating a lot. It helps my dry skin not to lose its moisture, as my skin doesn't go well with foamy type of facial wash. About the smell, I honestly don’t really like the smell of rose, but that’s quite okay as the rose scent isn’t that strong.
About the packaging, the material is a good quality one and the lid is tight, so it doesn’t leak (why I am mentioning this is because I’ve met one big brand that I used to use it everyday but the lid is not tight until it always leaks and it is quite annoying :”))

2. NARUKO - Rose & Botanic HA (Aqua Cubic Night Jelly EX)
This is AWESOME! The night jelly has a very light texture (compared to how other brands’ night creams) and it absorbs so quickly to the skin. It also doesn’t leaves any sticky feeling and it feels so fresh to the skin. Would give this 100/100 but no, maybe it would just be 99/100 cause the scent is not my favorite one (it’s Rose, the same with the foaming wash), but again, that’s just my personal preference, cause scent is something personal, right?

3. NARUKO - Rose & Botanic HA (Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask EX)
Comes up with protective plastic, it feels hygienic when applying it. Anyway, I don’t expect I would love it that much. It may seem excessive, but really, I was really shocked that the texture of the sheet is so soft (I cannot describe how soft it is, but it is really soft), and the material makes it look so tidy on your skin, I just really love it.
Btw, the texture of the liquid is also different. It is so quick to absorb and also not sticky as it contains much water and that is why it is really hydrating.

So ya, I think that’s all for today’s review. Thank you so much for reading. See you next time! (:
