SUPER DRY SKIN?

Moisturizer is NOT your one and only beauty savior. Read on.

When your skin or the climate is acting up on us, making our skin drier than usual, reach out for these products.

1 FRESH SUGAR FACE POLISH
Yes we still have to exfoliate to get rid of those dead skin cells on the surface.

2 LA MER THE HYDRATING FACIAL MASK
Face mask is the essential product to keep our skin plump and well-hydrated.

3 L’OCCITANE DIVINE EXTRACT SERUM
It’s just not another layer, OK? Facial serum can give us added moisture into deeper layers of our skin, which moisturizer can’t do. That’s why it costs more too.

4 CLINIQUE MOISTURE SURGE EXTENDED THIRST RELIEF
Dry skin is one thing, but dehydrated skin is another problem. Without any hydration help, our skin would be flaky, itchy and feel tight.

5 KIEHL’S MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE
While we were sleeping, our beloved skin is regenerating. A potent night serum will work its’ charm and magically transform dry skin to moist skin over night.

 

BEAUTY REVAMP

Never a better timing, no?

My first blog for 2013. I’m going to share my attempt for beauty revamp. This is not a beauty resolution, just a slightly different products changing.

So, what changed?

Powder Foundation to BB Cream
I used to love all the coverage that Powder Foundation gave me, but lately BB Cream feels a lot lighter. Not to mention, the final glowing result after BB Cream absorbed and adjusting to my skin, it’s fantastic. From now, I only use Powder Foundation only for special occasion, if I need more coverage.
My pick : KIEHL’S ACTIVELY CORRECTING & BEAUTIFYING BB CREAM (which will be launch this year in Indonesia-thanks for Kiehl’s Indonesia for letting me tried it before launching date).

Lipstick to Jumbo Lip Pencil
Or Lip Crayon or whatever they called it. I love how effortless it is to line and fill lipstick in the same time. No more wrong outline lips, especially if you’re bright lipstick fans like me.
My pick : NARS VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL

Nail Polish to Nail Stickers
My hero when I’m too lazy to wait for ordinary nail polish to dry. Might be tacky for first timer, but when you got the hang of them, you’ll become a nail stickers master. Warning: it might chipped easily, but for me it’s perfect. I never put on nail polish for more than 3 days anyway, to avoid dullness and yellow looking nails.
My pick : OPI PURE LACQUER NAIL APPS

Loose Powder to Mineral Powder
Lately I’ve noticed redness around my nose. Ordinary loose powder won’t do the trick to reduce them, so I switched. Mineral powder, especially the ones created especially to reduce redness seem to work for me now. No retouching required and it doesn’t crack when I smile, so perfect!
My pick : CLINIQUE REDNESS SOLUTIONS INSTANT RELIEF MINERAL POWDER

WEAR PINK PROUD

 

As we all know, the whole month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is the perfect month to show our ‘pink’ side.

The international symbol of breast cancer awareness, aka the pink ribbon made their debut in 1991 when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to participants in New York City race for breast cancer survivors.

In its latest report, the American Cancer Society says that 95% of new cases and 97% of breast cancer deaths occurred in women 40 years of age and older. It’s the fifth cause of death among women in the US. As we love to take care of ourselves, here’s something easy if you want to show some support to others and be a part of this exclusive month. Each October, many products especially beauty products are showing their extra love to fund research so more people will survive breast cancer. Here are some products which emblazoned with the famous pink ribbon.
