REVIEW: THANK YOU FARMER

New decade, New Brands are entering Indonesia’s market. This included, THANK YOU FARMER from Korea is now available at C&F Stores offline and online, here.

When I read about the story behind the brand, I’m amazed by how “Thank You Farmer” did not promise instant effects like most brands that I’ve tried. Instead, their products are painstakingly formulated to provide cumulative benefits. Their goal is simply to achieve balance for healthy skin slowly and naturally without burdening the skin.

So for those who are fed up with too many claims and promises from beauty brands, you might consider to try this brand. Especially if your skin needs extra hydration during this rainy season, this might help a lot.

TRUE WATER DEEP TONER
If you are not sure what your skin type is, but your skin is thirsty and need a glass of water, this might be a toner for you. With ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, aloe vera and niacinamide, this toner is like a quenching drink for thirsty skin. But beware for those who have fungal-acne prone skin, as it has two ingredients (Portulaca Oleracea Extract and PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil) that are known for Fungal-Acne triggers. It’s not your typical liquid toner that you can use with cotton pads, though. Just apply with your hands because the texture is quite viscous.

TRUE WATER DEEP SERUM
Deeply moisturizing serum that simply hydrates with added cell-supporting ceramides and liquorice extract to brighten. Also suitable for all skin types, but I do recommend this if you have dry skin. Beware for those who have fungal-acne prone skin, as it also have Portulaca Oleracea Extract and PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor oil.

TRUE WATER DEEP EMULSION
Great for those who have problem with moisture barrier. With brightening bamboo and fig extracts, this should go on the emulsion step, after the serum before cream. Expect added bonus: radiance boost! Use with caution if you have acne-prone and fungal acne-prone skin, as it contains Shea Butter and Centella Asiatica extract. Since this is an emulsion with a lighter texture than cream, I recommend this for oily skin type.

TRUE WATER DEEP CREAM
With ingredients like aloe vera, sodium hyaluronate and liquorice extract, this cream really moisturize, soften and plumping. Perfect cream if your skin is dry, as the texture is quite rich and creamy. This shall be applied at the very last step on your skincare routine, before putting on sunscreen. Oh one more thing, it contains dimethicone (silicone) and not safe for fungal acne.

SUN PROJECT LIGHT SUN ESSENCE SPF50+ PA+++
I just love K-Beauty sunscreen, most of them are lightweight, don’t feel sticky or leave a white cast. Including this one. With a subtle scent, the formula offers in-between matte and dewy finish. With ingredients like aloe leaf extract, lotus flower water and soybean lipids, this sunscreen is definitely not oily. Unfortunately, it’s not safe for fungal-acne, but is free from mineral oil and paraben.

BEST OF 2019: FUNGAL-ACNE SAFE SKINCARE (NEW PRODUCTS)

Super glad that 2019 is almost over. Definitely not one of my best year, but I’m sure you don’t want to hear about it (LOL).

Just a quick update on my skin condition, I believe when I got older, my skin easily and rapidly reacted to skincare products. Bumps and adult/hormonal acnes are still easily appeared. The good thing is, I’ve managed to control my fungal acne come back with the right products. In fact, I didn’t suffer any fungal-acne breakout this year.

After trial & error here and there, I became more aware on what ingredients that actually work, or in the other hand, caused the problems. In my case, I try to avoid:

  1. Butylene Glycol, because it might trigger comedones.
  2. Centella Asiatica, because it’s not good if you are still suffering from acne or having acne-prone skin like mine.
  3. Essential Oils or any facial oil, because my skin didn’t react well after using them.

So yes, it became harder to find skincare products for me. Other than avoiding non-safe fungal acne ingredients, now I also have to check those ingredients above. And trust me, it’s not easy!

This (much shorter) list is based on my own personal experience and after checking all the ingredients on cosdna and skincarisma. No worries, this list is mostly different from my 2018 list (with additional categories and check out my HG products with *).

Enjoy reading and happy holidays, folks! Make sure you spent your money wisely when it comes to skincare products (talking like a true champ, LOL).

REVIEW & SWATCHES: BLP BEAUTY LIP BULLET

Kudos for By Lizzie Parra (BLP Beauty) for their latest launch, to accommodate Bullet Lipstick lovers like me.

As you might have noticed, lately we all can see the rise of bullet lipsticks from international brands. And I’m enjoying it, because frankly speaking I am team bullet! I found them easier to apply when on the move, they are mostly more creamy and easier to remove by the end of the day. Who’s with me?

Maybe bullet lipsticks are not that long lasting as liquid lipsticks, but I don’t mind touch up throughout the day. Especially if the packaging look cute like these!

BLP Beauty Lip Bullet comes in four new natural shades. Each of the packaging represents the shade inside. And another good thing is you can see the name of the shades clearly printed on the tubes. Although you have to make sure you heard the click sound to close it properly, I found the packaging really helpful rather than you have to see those tiny fonts on the bottom of the packaging.

Mind you, these are not flat matte-lipsticks. I found these lipsticks creamy and extra comfortable when applied, with satin-matte finish. They are buildable, but I’m already satisfied with one layer. And yes, since these are creamy lipstick, they’re transferable. But I don’t mind at all. Make sure you blot first before you eat or drink.

SWATCHES ON HAND

ON MY LIPS – ONE LAYER

BISCOTTI is a peachy brown, but somehow it looks orange on me
CANNOLI is beige with a hint of dusty pink. On me it’s mauve. This is my fave!
PAVLOVA is a lighter version of CANNOLI. Love this too!
LICORICE is supposedly a deep brown, but on me it’s dark red

FUNGAL-ACNE SAFE SKIN-CARE PRODUCTS FROM LOCAL (READ: INDONESIAN) BRANDS

I’ve received lots of DM on my IG about this topic, and I’m trying to find ones that are safe for fungal-acne prone skin. Feel free to add to this list, please DM me on my IG, here.

If you’ve been reading my blog, you will know that I did recommend to do the basic skincare routine while dealing with Fungal Acne. You can build up your routine once they’re completely gone. Personally, I will stick with cleansing, toning and hydrating steps. That’s it. No makeup added, just the good ol’ basic skincare routine.

FUNGAL-ACNE SAFE MISTS & ESSENCES

When to use mist & essence in your fungal-acne prone skincare routine?

Well, for me, mist can go beyond their original duties. Mist can fit in nicely to my hydrating toner step, especially after that harsh exfoliating toner. And of course, spritzing mist on before makeup (after SPF) will help to prepare skin to enhance our makeup staying power. Or, impart that dewy glow by spritzing mist after makeup. There’s more: try spritzing before applying sheet mask or on beauty blender or cushion puff to even out foundation and help it blend seamlessly. Throughout the day, mist can also help to refresh skin and makeup.

These are the mists I love that are safe for fungal-acne prone skin.

ROLLOVER REACTION HYDRATING FACE MIST &
LEEGEEHAAM (LJH) TEA TREE 70 MIST TONER

How about essence? Well, if you are into Korean skincare routine, you’ll find that essence is actually the heart of the skincare routine. Use after hydrating toner and before serum, usually essence comes in thicker liquid form than toner. Think of essence like a base layer of hydration and moisture.

These are the essences I love that are safe for fungal-acne prone skin.

REVIEW: AMORE PACIFIC VINTAGE SINGLE EXTRACT ESSENCE

To cut the post short, I’ve been looking for skincare with green tea.

Why? Because it’s rich in EGCG (that’s Epigallocatechin Gallate), that research has shown can improve acne and oily skin. As I’ve been dealing with never ending hormonal acne, thanks to my fluctuating androgen levels, I need EGCG’s help. Not only that, EGCG is also a great anti-aging oxidant which helps fight wrinkles by increasing cell turnover.

Then, my googling journey came to this product. An expensive product for a bottle of essence. What made them so bloody expensive? Well, it carefully utilizes green tea cultivated from the Dolsongi Green Tea Garden, the first of the three garden tea gardens that the company owns and operates on Jeju Island, off the South Coast of Korea. The green tea leaves are handpicked and naturally fermented in optimal condition for 50 days, then transferred by tea masters and placed into this traditional Korean earthware band buried in the earth, to age naturally for another 50 days.

So yes, it needs 100 days of waiting and another 24 hours slow extraction process to make this worthy essence. But, does it worth my splurge (btw, it costs me IDR1,5 mio for 120ml bottle).

From skincarisma.com

Rejoice for those who love minimal ingredients. It only consists of 6 ingredients: Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (aka the green tea), 1,2-Hexanediol and Ethylhexylglycerin. And yes, this product is also vegan.

As the name stated, it is an essence, so it goes straight after toner. I use this twice a day, morning and night by pouring three drops on the palm of my hand and pat. If you’ve been reading my post, you know I still believe in essence step, as it will help skin to absorb serum and moisturizer more effectively.

So how did it perform on my skin?

BEFORE USING THE ESSENCE
AFTER USING THE ESSENCE

Well, I can see a huge difference when I applied this on night time. When I woke up in the morning, I saw less oil on my face. And if big painful zits, especially on chin area started to appear, this will lessen the red appearance. I believe, it also brighten my skin tone.

Texture: very watery with no scent. It looks more like a black tea essence, even though it’s supposed to be green tea.

Is it safe for Fungal Acne? Yes, even though it comes from fermented green tea.

REVIEW: PATYKA PARIS

Thanks to Patyka Indonesia for having me last week at the launch of their new range: CLEAN, HYDRA & PURE.

PATYKA PARIS PURE RANGE
PATYKA PARIS HYDRA RANGE

At the launch, I surely learned a lot about this skincare certified organic brand from Paris.

  • The first product from this brand is HUILE ABSOLUE, which created way back in 1922. The formulas haven’t changed since.
  • Currently, it took them 3 to 5 years to develop one product.
  • All of their products have ECOCERT Certification since 2002, and became the first cosmetics brand in the world to be awarded Ecocert organic certification.
  • Most of their products are vegan (because some of them still use bees wax) and they do not test on animals.
  • Only botanical actives not grown in France are sought somewhere in the world, but all of their products are fully manufactured in France, including their unique box packaging.
  • Last but not least, these new range will be more affordable and dedicated for more wider age group from 20 years up.

And of course, we came home with their PR Kit. Mostly contains PURE range, which I chose because of my oily skin problem. So, let’s begin the review, shall we?

PATYKA PARIS DETOX CLEANSING FOAM

It’s one of their CLEAN range, which actually consists of 3 items: cleansing oil, cleansing foam, and toner. Basically, it’s a basic cleansing routine range.

CLAIM: eliminate impurities and particles of pollution accumulated during the day. Deeply cleanses for a radiant and smooth skin.

THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Aloe Vera (for its’ moisturizing purpose) and Moringa (highly detoxifying).

PROS: Yesssss!!!! It’s safe for Fungal Acne and it’s soap-free.

CONS: Still contains fragrance

THOUGHTS: I love this, seriously. It caught my attention at the launch event, because unlike any other facial foam that I’ve tried, this glides so luxurious and beautifully on skin. It’s still foamy even though it’s soap free, but the cloudy foam didn’t pull on that disappearing act on your skin (if you know what I mean). Yes that cloud of foam feels so wonderful on my skin. Highly recommended, guys!

PATYKA PARIS ANTI-BLEMISH TONER

One of their PURE range, dedicated for combination to oily skin.

CLAIM: Remove all impurities and excess sebum. Rebalance and smooth the skin. Imperfections are reduced and pores are tightened.

THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Organic Mint Floral Water (it’s a natural astringent), Prebiotics from natural sugar, and (they had me at this) Botanical Salicylic Acid. So, they use vegetable salicylic acid, extracted from Wintergreen.

PROS: Another Fungal Acne safe product (yeay!)

CONS: Alcohol and Fragrance

THOUGHTS: Even though it’s fragranced, I found the scent really pleasing. It does smell like mint water, very refreshing to sort of waking up my skin in the morning.

PATYKA PARIS MATTE PERFECTING FLUID

Also from their PURE range. It is a moisturizer, by the way.

CLAIM: Regulates the production of sebum throughout the day and mattifies the skin without drying it.

THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Burdock Root Organic (sebum regulating), Prebiotics from natural sugars (promote the growth of the microbial flora which protects the skin) & Natural Silica Powder (absorbs excess sebum)

PROS: Well, it is a mattifying moisturizer. What’s not to love?

CONS: Not safe for Fungal Acne because it contains Jojoba Seed Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil. And it has alcohol and fragrance.

THOUGHTS: Textured like light gel and smells wonderful. And unlike most mattifying moisturizer which contain silicone, this one does not have any. They use natural silica powder to absorb excess sebum and shine, and to create that soft but not overpower matte.

PATYKA PARIS DETOX CHARCOAL MASK

Last but not least from the PURE range.

CLAIM: Absorbs excess sebum and cleanses the pores. Unclogs pores without drying the skin.

THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Plant-derived Charcoal (sanitize skin and regulates the sebum production), Green Clay (as decongestant), and Zinc (cleanses and purifies).  

PROS: It is a wash-off mask (leave it for 10 minutes) or use it for spot treatment (for night time use only).  

CONS: Not safe for Fungal Acne and has fragrance.

THOUGHTS: First, I use this as spot treatment. It didn’t budge throughout my sleep, until I took them off in the morning. Of course, it didn’t heal acne overnight. But, I found this work well on almost there pimples. So when you found that spots, put this overnight and they wouldn’t be aggravated acnes.

WTH IS INFLAMMAGING AND HOW TO PREVENT IT?

Well…if you said it’s inflammation and aging combined to one word…you are kind of correct!

I heard about this word when I attended the relaunch of Yves Rocher Anti-Age Global last week on a staycation trip (thanks Yves Rocher Indonesia that accommodated me and 4 others beauty enthusiasts).

Unfortunately our skin is not like a fine wine. It doesn’t get better with age. If you search the word “Inflammaging” online, you’ll find out that this is actually a medical term which acknowledges the role chronic inflammation plays in the aging process, and not just for skin, but for the whole body. But on skin, it describes the foremost cause of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Basically, it’s like your skin cells self-healing functions are slowing down as we age.

So, what caused inflammaging? The sun, polluted environment, and certain foods that we ate (read: sugar, red meat and no vegetables). For me, this “Inflammaging” thing screams like aging 2.0 version.

Good news is we can prevent this, before it’s too late with the renew Anti-Age Global Range from Yves Rocher. It was relaunch because there used to be this Anti-Age Global range a few years back, but it was dedicated to more mature skin (read: 50+ years old). This year, Yves Rocher relaunched this range for 25+ years old, with better ingredients and faster result (they claimed you can see the result within 72 hours). And this line is inspired by Gemmotherapy, the science of buds, known to have more superior properties compared to ‘adult’ plants. Using lilac flower’s buds, known as Syringa Extract, there are 7 products in this range. You can purchase them here.

This line fits perfectly to my current skincare routine, as I’m doing my skipcare. Yes, I skip those 10 steps, just because I didn’t see any improvement on my skin, anyway.


So, these are the steps using Anti-Age Global from Yves Rocher.

After your usual toner, apply The Anti-Aging Activating Lotion. With its’ clear and watery texture, it’s very refreshing and can be use as mist, too. Consider this as a preparation before essence.
Then, use The Anti-Aging Correcting Supra Essence. It’s formulated with Liquorice for that illuminating properties. Love the white matte dropper packaging.
For day, continue with The Anti-Aging Beautifying Cream (they offer two types, one for dry skin and one for all skin types, so choose accordingly). For the all skincare types, it has moisturizing properties with powdery finish.
Day cream for dry skin is more thick in texture compared to the ones for all skin types. Recommended for dry skin type as it really moisturized well.
For night, moisturize with The Anti-Aging Comfort Cream. Unlike any other night cream that I’ve tried, this has unique melting texture which is comfortable to be slept on.
Don’t skip your eyecare. Use The Anti-Aging Illuminating Care with it’s refreshing gel texture, to reduce wrinkles around the eyes area. This comes with a roller ball tip, put in a fridge for extra coolness.
Additional treatment, if you have dark spots problem, treat with The Ant-Aging Dark Spot Concentrate. This is a targeted care product, with a gel texture and a precise applicator tip. You can use this at day and night only on spots as a final skincare routine.

NIACINAMIDES FOR FUNGAL ACNE

If you’ve been reading my posts and follow my IG, you’ll know how much I appreciate Niacinamide. Even back in the days when my fungal acne were still around…until today.

You can read somewhere else about WTH is Niacinamide and what would it do to your skin, but here I’m going to share you my favorites and my not so much. But for sure, all of the stuffs I mentioned are fungal acne safe. Tried & Tested by yours truly. Your welcome.

GLOSSIER SUPER PURE

Unlike most people who purchased Glossier’s makeup products as their first encounter to this loveable brand, I bought this. I remember I was so disappointed of The Ordinary Niacinamide because it clumps, then I decided to buy the more expensive Niacinamide serum out there. And this didn’t disappoint me from the first hello.

They used to sell the 15ml version, but now the latest version is 30ml, bigger bottle. With 5% Niacinamide and Zinc PCA, it’s also paraben free, fragrance free and vegan.

Why I love this? It contains no Butylene Glycol which I personally believe can be comedogenic. And I love the feel when it glides smoothly without clumps. Totally a winner, considering the hefty price tag. I believe this is my fifth bottle already.  

PAULA’S CHOICE 10% NIACINAMIDE BOOSTER

I heard so much good things about this. So, even though it’s more expensive than Glossier, I decided to splurge.

It contains more percentage of Niacinamide, mind you. This contains 10% of Niacinamide with additional Sodium Hyaluronate for hydration and Allantoin for skin-soothing.

Usually I will mix this with essence, because unlike Glossier, this is a bit sticky when used alone.

Unfortunately this contains Butylene Glycol which I try to avoid lately, but since I like to restock, and already purchased this second bottle, WTH. I will try to finish this serum booster, anyway.

COS DE BAHA NIACINAMIDE 10 SERUM

Like seriously guys, I am so glad I stumbled upon this serum while browsing religiously online. This is like the cheapest serum I’ve ever bought in my life and it’s not even a local brand. It costs under IDR100K, for a 30ml bottle.

Yes, all the good stuffs are in there. 10% Niacinamide, Pure Hyaluronic Acid, 1% Zinc PCA and Licorice. It’s a South Korean brand, and they claim to use 78% organic ingredients. Free of sulfates, paraben, colorant, alcohol and fragrance, too.

I love this, it is that good. Similar feel like Glossier, without the price. For sure I’m going to repurchase this (currently checking what to buy next from this underrated brand).

2 SOL FACIAL RECOVERY BOOSTER

Unlike those three mentioned above (which have clear transparent texture), this has yellowish liquid shade. I believe it’s because of Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, aka Vitamin C, one of the main ingredients here. Yes, this one mix 10% Niacinamide and Vitamin C, people. But no worries, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is a very stable Vitamin C and soluble in water and oil. I didn’t find mine getting oxidized after awhile (just make sure to close it tightly after usage), so there you have it.

Unfortunately, this also has Butylene Glycol in it (like Paula’s Choice one). And I don’t like the packaging, it has no stopper. So, I’m also trying to finish this first (and last) bottle.

GROWN-UP SOLUTION FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN

Since I’m not a teenager anymore (obviously!), I’m not treating my skin like one especially when dealing with acne.

From my own personal trial & error, ingredients that are comedogenic, like Butylene Glycol, Cetyl & Cetearyl Alcohol and Tocopherol (Vitamin E), are a big no no. And thanks to Dr Liv Kraemer (I’ve been enjoying watching her YT Channel), since I stopped using facial oil (even though they claim it’s ok for acne-prone skin, like rosehip and marula), I saw improvement on my skin’s texture. She said in one of her videos, if you have acne-prone skin, the bacteria on top would be trapped by facial oil, which actually formed more pimples.

Another surprising fact that I’ve found recently, Centella Asiatica will not help if you have acne-prone skin (thanks for this information, Dr Eche Idrus SpKK). Yes, Centella is effective in treatment of wounds and even for cellulites. But not for acne-prone skin, especially if they’re still raging like a bull.

So, with new information that I’ve got, I’ve sort of revamped my skincare regime, by selectively cutting out the above ingredients. Here are some new ones that have been taking over my vanity.

Thayers Toner for daily toner, Aqulabo Vinyasa for post exfo-toner, Sioris for mild exfo toner and Mediheal Peelosoft for disposable cleansing

And last but not least, taking vitamins. Trust me, I drank lots of Roaccutane before, but it felt wrong having so much chemical inside, so I decided to stop and switched to vitamins instead. Anyway, they’re vitamins. But, mind me, these vitamins didn’t fix my acne problem instantly, but I believe they’ll help from the inside since I rarely eat healthy foods. Disclaimer: I’m not coming from a medical background, I just wrote based on personal experience and what I’ve found all around the net.

Daily, I took two different vitamins. Two of vitamin B2 B6, and one vitamin D. Vitamin B2B6 is very popular skin vitamin when they came from, Japan. They claim that these vitamins combination will improve skin problems like skin irritation and acne. If vitamins are not your thing, you can also get this vitamin B intake from grains, soybeans, bananas and watermelon (which are known to have vitamin B6).

Now, for vitamin D. Also known as “the sunshine vitamin”, because you can actually get vitamin D while being exposed to the sun. But, since I rarely out in the sun (I am horrified of the heat and the after-smell), I supposed my body is lacking of vitamin D. Imagine to my surprise, when one day, I read that vitamin D deficiency maybe a part of what’s causing acne or making acne worse. When I asked Dr Eche Idrus SpKK about this, she said that vitamin D does have an anti-inflammatory property and in some cases can reduce acne. As we all know, milk and cheese are a great source of vitamin D (not too much or they’ll make acne worse). Unfortunately for me whose sensitive to lactose, I can’t choose to have dairy products as a replacement for vitamin D’s intake. And I believe my fungal-acne won’t agree with me if I’m sitting under the sun to keep acne at bay. So the only choice for me, is this Vitamin D.

Summary:

  • Know what ingredients work well on your skin
  • Stay away from facial oil
  • Take the right vitamin(s) for your skin
  • Drink lots of water, infused ones if you are not a heavy fruits and vegetable eaters.
