After reviewing the original formula, where one drop locks an ocean HERE, now I’m back with the Whitening series.


Here’s some details from hadalabo.com.my
ONE DROP LIGHTS UP YOUR SKIN
Fulfill your dreams of a white, perfect skin with Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening range that contains Arbutin to help fight darks spots and brighten up skin tone. Also contains Vitamin C to enhance skin fairness and reawaken dull skin caused by exposure to UV rays.

Lotion

  • Contains Arbutin to fight dark spots. Smoothes & clarifies to optimize skin’s radiance & translucency.
  • Vitamin C helps skin recover from accumulated sun damage while reducing the appearance of dark spots to give clearer, fairer skin.
  • Contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate intensely, keeping skin soft & supple.
  • Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
  • Free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant.


 
Use twice a day after cleansing face. Apply on palms and gently pat onto skin until thoroughly absorbed.

Milk

  • Contains Arbutin to fight dark spots & re-balance skin tone for visibly fair & radiant skin.
  • Enhanced with Vitamin C for a more uniform skin tone & reawakens the appearance of dull skin caused by UV rays.
  • Preserves skin’s natural moisture. Smoothes & clarifies to optimize skin’s translucency.
  • Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
  • Free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant.


 
Use twice a day after applying Whitening Lotion. Apply on palms and gently pat onto face until thoroughly absorbed.

Here they are, the lotion is runnier than the hydrating series. Really like water drops. The milk in term of texture is kinda the same with the hydrating milk. Hmm, I can’t say they have instant brightening or whitening effect, but I can clearly they are mild and doesn’t cause any irritation or sensitivity or problems that usually caused by conventional whitening products that promote skin regeneration by pushing it too far, forcing the skin to flake off.

I’ll try to keep using it on areas that I think have many brown spots and need to be fair-er. Like the upper side of my arms, I have a lot of dark spots there because it’s the area that often exposed without ehm . . . using a sun protection daily (now I do have Skin Aqua =^__^=). But I’m aware it takes more than a week usage, our skin normal timing is 28 days. For now, so far so good.


  • This foaming wash gently & effectively removes pore impurities & purify the skin for a clearer, brighter complexion.
  • Enriched with Arbutin & plant extracts for double whitening effect. Helps restore and optimize skin’s evenness for visibly fair & radiant skin.
  • Contains Super Hyaluronic Acid that penetrates into skin to hydrate intensely leaving skin soft & supple.
  • Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
  • Free of artificial fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant.

 
Use twice a day. Squeeze sufficient amount onto your palm. Lather with water and massage onto face, using gentle circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Now the face wash. Let me deliberate in comparison mode, as below:




It is almost the same, in fact if both are presented next to each other without the tube, I wont know the differences. Both have no scent, both are a white creamy texture, both are so light and easily lathers up into light foams. But here’s one interesting fact that I found. I wash my right hand with hydrating face wash and the left side with whitening face wash, both feels the same but after rinsing, the whitening shows an immediate effect. My left hand become fairer than the right. The effect is not permanent, it was like right after the wash and slowly back into the original shade, but it was quite exciting for me heehee.

Overall,

All the products here is very gentle and mild to the skin. As their commitment they still bring simplicity into their range, the hydration and whitening as well. For the whitening wise, don’t expect it to be instant, patience is the key. I’ll keep using it and give you further review, stay tune ya, or if you have the experience, please share it on the comment ^__^


Thank you and see you soon.

Oh la la! This one item is a must have in every gal’s dressing table. First, let’s check the details from bobbibrowncosmetics.com:

Top-Rated

Vitamin Enriched Face Base

A Bobbi Brown Best-Seller. Bobbi recommends this as the first step to prepare skin for the smoothest makeup application. Rich in feel, but never greasy, this advanced oil-free, face formula, with Shea Butter, instantly hydrates, softens, and cushions skin. Carrot Extract and Vitamin A Complex help minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamins C and E help protect against environmental damage. Grapefruit and Geranium fragrances leave a light, uplifting scent on skin. With daily use, skin looks and feels its best. Dermatologist-tested.

I can be more ecstatic about the scent, it was refreshingly juicy and delightful. It’s a mix between something citrus and remarkably addictive. The light yellow slightly milky creamy form of gooey jelly base is also another winning strike. I use it on a cleaned moisturized skin and it just glide on the skin guilt-free. Somehow the skin looks more alive and healthier, like literally just take a dose of vitamins and prep the way for makeup.

Say good bye to a dull looking skin and hello radiance. Use it alone when you just want to enjoy a good natural looking skin or top it off with a light foundation or maybe bb cream with SPF. Add some loose powder, and good to go! No need adding piles of heavy makeup since it will block the gorgeous looking skin within.


Hello lovelies!

I’m back with Hada Labo collection, currently in Indonesia Hada Labo carries 3 range, this is one of them, the one that start it all, the one that create a lot of buzz out there, and it’s the one and only ………….  The hydrating or moisturizing range.






I’ve done a review for the face wash a while ago, back in my Singapore days.

Read my previous review: HERE.

Later I’ll give you a review on comparing the hydrating face wash with the whitening series. Stay tune for that one ^__^





And here’s more, a set that I get from Hada Labo Indonesia, the lotion and milk too.










And here are the texture and review.


The lotion is clear, water like with more weight, it’s like a halfway going into gel-form. Gives the skin instant hydration, unique and unlike toner where sometime may dries the skin, the lotion gives moist and supple effect. No fuss, no frill, no scent either, just pure hydrating to the skin.

I can see why people are head over heels on the lotion alone. As it is low in irritating ingredients, gentle to the touch and for those who have dry skin? Instant comfort too as the lotion does relieve the skin from dryness. Those cracking and chapped skin? They’ll enjoy the lotion the most. No, I’m not suggesting anyone to wait until the skin dehydrated to use the lotion, use it as a prevention too.

Now the milk. A milky lotion, not cream not gel, a milky lotion. So easy to absorb and suitable to be use with almost all skin type. In Jakarta where humidity and heat take part, this milky lotion might be the correct form to hydrate the skin every day. The milk easily spread on the skin and leaves no trace of dryness anymore. The skin hydrated longer with the light feeling. If you’re not used to using any moisturizing then this would be a perfect solution for you.

The 3 items here will gives the skin:

 A clean hydrated feeling that can be used with any skin type, dry skin preferably but yes, still any skin will need hydration. As the lightness of the 3 items, even oily skin will enjoy the light hydrating effect, you do know that oily skin is caused by lack of water/hydration.

My advice? Try them and experience why is it a big hit (and it’s not just because the price is very affordable).

Thank you Hada Labo Indonesia.


Hello pretties!

A few days ago, I was invited by The Body Shop Indonesia. It was for the 100% Cruelty Free Campaign which I thought going to be a bit boring and cliche…where later I was proven to be so wrong. 

Please read the product details before going further.





Cruelty Free International mengajak pelanggan The Body Shop Indonesia untuk ikut melarang dunia menggunakan hewan sebagai bahan percobaan kosmetik

Perjanjian global untuk melarang pengujian terhadap hewan untuk kebutuhan kosmetik akan diluncurkan di seluruh toko The Body Shop di Indonesia. Hal ini dilakukan sebagai bagian dari program kampanye Cruelty Free International, yaitu organisasi global pertama yang didedikasikan untuk menghentikan penggunaan hewan sebagai bahan percobaan kosmetik di seluruh dunia.
Perjanjian global ini akan tersedia di seluruh toko The Body Shop di hampir 65 negara. Ini adalah kampanye terbesar dan paling ambisius yang pernah ada untuk mencegah secara global penggunaan hewan untuk uji kelayakan kosmetik. Selain melibatkan 275 juta pengunjung toko-toko The Body Shop, Cruelty Free International juga akan terhubung langsung dengan situs The Body Shop, yang juga diakses jutaan pelanggan setiap tahunnya.
Saat ini di dunia belum ada larangan terhadap pengujian hewan untuk kosmetik dan lebih dari 80% produsen dengan kejam masih menggunakan hewan sebagai bahan percobaan. Peraturan kosmetik di Indonesia diatur oleh  Cosmetic Directive ASEAN, sangat mirip dengan EU Cosmetics Directive. Meskipun begitu, tidak seperti Uni Eropa, ASEAN tidak melarang pengujian kosmetik pada hewan di wilayah Asia Tenggara.
Cruelty Free International bekerja sama dengan pemerintah, regulator, perusahaan dan organisasi mitra di seluruh dunia, akan mendesak regulator ASEAN agar menghentikan penggunaan hewan sebagai bahan percobaan kosmetik di semua negara anggotanya. Selain itu, untuk wilayah Asia, Cruelty Free International juga didukung dan dijalankan oleh ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society), sebuah organisasi non-profit yang berlokasi di Singapura.
Paul McGreevy, International Values dan R & D Director The Body Shop, mengatakan “The Body Shop sangat percaya bahwa tak ada satupun hewan yang pantas disakiti hanya karena peraturan pemerintah dan regulator di seluruh dunia. Kami memiliki komitmen jangka panjang untuk isu ini karena banyak orang menganggap masalah ini telah teratasi padahal belum. Dengan bangga kami mendukung kampanye Creulty Free International dan demi terwujudnya larangan  pengujian hewan atas nama kosmetik di seluruh dunia, kami mendorong semua orang untuk menandatangani janji mereka di toko kami!



Michelle Thew, Chief Executive, Cruelty Free International, mengatakan, “Sejak awal, The Body Shop telah dikenal dunia sebagai perusahaan berprinsip Against Animal Testing. Hal tersebut adalah wujud upaya mereka menghentikan pengujian kosmetik terhadap hewan, dan Cruelty Free International sangat senang mengetahui bahwa The Body Shop mendukung kampanye besar ini.”
Untuk menandatangani janji penghentian pengujian kosmetik terhadap hewan dari the Cruelty Free International silakan langsung mengunjungi semua toko The Body Shop di wilayah ASEAN.
Tersedia juga secara online di www.crueltyfreeinternational.org

·      Cruelty Free Lily Cole Make Up Series tidak menggunakan bagian-bagian tubuh binatang seperti cangkang, bulu dan bagian lain sebagai bahan pembuatnya.

I just found out that lipstick use lady bug as an ingredients, ooh poor them. At the event, TBS also presents us with the video of animal cruelty in the cosmetic world.

The title of the video is “The Ugly Truth” (not the Hollywood movie)

As seen, TBS brought series of product that uses animal’s part, including fish scales and pony’s hair. It’s like an eye opener for me, I guess all these times I know the truth, but kept one eye shut, since ehm . . . it is easier like that. But it’s creepy, super creepy.

TBS opens the possibilities of looking and feeling good in a much higher level, where beauty doesn’t have to harm other creatures.


Wth Lily Cole, oh wait, who is Lily Cole? Apparently she is a model and actress from UK that take a whole lotta part in many different causes, including environment and now animal cruelty. So she join TBS and designing some of the products under her name including picking the tones as well. You’ll see how her creativity flows and I’m even thinking, these are not made by TBS. Her characteristic and hey, purple eye liners? So not TBS.

I love TBS, the whole backstage area is dedicated for us to be pampered. A quick makeover (special from the runway) is here with the makeup artists attitude’s like it was Jakarta’s Fashion Week.

Many best sellers and favorite items are here.

Gorgeous isn’t it?

Below is the snapshots from the brief introduction and presentation from TBS.

Like the gorgeous model says “Guilt-free cosmetics” and she is right. Responsibility has been taken further, TBS has done the community a just and fair trading, very active in many positive propaganda and now 100% Cruelty Free too.


Signed the petition with proud, and we all now may participate as well by signing the petition through http://www.thebodyshop.co.id and later in the stores as well.

Now, let’s see the result of my mini makeover.

This is my before look, a simple base only.


Straight to the eyes.


The shade used is mixed of brown and pink.


Then she blend everything together in a jiffy.


These are the result after using the 4 colors in those cubes.


Added the eye liner


It dries pretty fast and waterproof too.


Add some blushes


And I’m done. Thank youuuuu ^__^

All the products are now available in selected store, I’ve seen them in Mal Puri Indah branch, including Lily Cole’s.

With pink signature tone they look so cute and girly.

The powder, Lip & Cheek Dome and oh yes, makeup base, you’ve gotta see and try, it’s like a primer too with soft shimmering effect.


Above is the shimmer powder (Puff on Radiance) , somewhat like a finishing powder too but love the natural effect and the picture of my hand with pinkish gooey things? That’s Pearl Radiance Primer. Crush the pearls and get that pearly glow as the base. I might have to work a bit in crushing them but the effect is shimmery and velvety smooth.

Last, let me give you the full range of Lily Cole for The Body Shop.



Thank you The Body Shop Indonesia!

The Shining 30


Brand’s Bird’s Nest is back, and this time, it’s shining time!
The theme is “Shining 30”. Why 30?
.
From Press Release:

Bersinar di Usia Keemasan Perempuan
Pentingnya perawatan dari dalam bagi wanita usia 30an tahun untuk pancaran kecantikan yang sempurna
Jakarta, 23 Oktober 2012 – BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest mengerti bahwa fase usia 30an merupakan masa keemasan bagi seorang perempuan karena umumnya pada usia ini perempuan akan tampak bersinar karena kepribadiannya yang sudah matang dan sudah mantap dalam karier dan kehidupan pribadi. Selain itu BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest meyakini bahwa secara fisik perempuan di usia 30an juga mengalami masa keemasan dimana kecantikan termasuk kecantikan kulit mereka akan lebih terpancar karena kepercayaan diri mereka terlebih bagi mereka yang selalu merawat kecantikannya dari dalam.

BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest with Rock Sugar, produk sarang burung walet premium dalam kemasan botol dari PT Cerebos Indonesia mengajak perempuan Indonesia untuk selalu menjaga dan merawat kesehatan serta kecantikan kulitnya dari dalam karena BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest mengerti pentingnya menjaga keremajaan kulit bagi perempuan, terutama bagi perempuan yang menyambut usia 30 tahun maupun yang sudah berada dalam kisaran usia 30an. Kandungan bahan alami dalam BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest yaitu sarang burut walet telah teruji memberikan efek mendinginkan tubuh dari dalam dan menjaga kadar kandungan air dalam kulit agar tidak mudah hilang sehingga membantu mempertahankan kelembapan dan keremajaan kulit, sekaligus menjaganya tetap mulus.
Acara ini dihadiri oleh Roslina Verauli, Psikolog dari Universitas Indonesia, Agnesyah Budiyanti, Marketing Manager PT. Cerebos Indonesia dan Nuniek Tirta Ardianto, figur dari the shining 30 yang berhasil memantapkan karier dan kehidupan pribadinya di usia 30an.

BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest percaya bahwa merawat kecantikan dari dalam merupakan salah satu faktor penting yang harus diperhatikan dan dijaga oleh perempuan di usia 30an karena walaupun kecantikan kulit mereka sedang mengalami masa puncak, mereka harus mempersiapkan diri untuk menghadapi dekade usia berikutnya dimana vitalitas dan regenerasi kulit akan berkurang terutama dengan semakin banyaknya faktor eksternal perusak kulit dan kesehatan.

Roslina Verauli, Psikolog dari Universitas Indonesia, membenarkan bahwa usia 30an merupakan fase keemasan bagi seorang perempuan, “Setiap fase usia memiliki karakteristik masing-masing. Karakteristik usia 30an bagi perempuan adalah passion, ketika kita berbicara dengan perempuan di fase ini, kita dapat melihat bahwa matanya memancarkan passion dan kepercayaan diri yang kemudian akan memancarkan kecantikannya. Namun tidak dapat dipungkiri bahwa kecantikan dari dalamlah yang akan membantu perempuan di usia 30 tampak bersinar dibandingkan perempuan pada dekade usia lainnya.”

Merawat kecantikan dari dalam merupakan salah satu faktor penting yang harus diperhatikan dan dijaga oleh perempuan di usia 30an karena walaupun kecantikan kulit mereka sedang mengalami masa puncak, namun mereka harus mempersiapkan diri untuk menghadapi dekade usia berikutnya dimana vitalitas dan regenerasi kulit akan berkurang terutama dengan semakin banyaknya faktor eksternal perusak kulit dan kesehatan seperti polusi, perubahan iklim, AC dan gaya hidup kurang sehat yang sulit untuk dihindari.

Agnesyah Budiyanti, Marketing Manager PT Cerebos Indonesia mengungkapkan “Kami mengerti bahwa menjaga kecantikan kulit sesuatu yang sangat berarti bagi seorang perempuan terutama seiring dengan bertambahnya usia. Oleh karena itu, bagi setiap perempuan yang selalu menjalani kesehariannya dengan penuh passion, BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest dengan segala khasiat baik burung walet senantiasa setia menjaga keremajaan dan kecantikan kulit mereka.”

Sarang burung walet yang dipercaya mengandung banyak khasiat bagi kesehatan tubuh serta keindahan kulit telah diolah secara tradisional selama ratusan tahun lalu. Oleh karena itu, BRAND’S® berkomitmen untuk menggunakan teknologi dan ilmu pengetahuan terbaru dan selalu berusaha membuka potensi bahan makanan alami serta memberikan produk-produk berkualitas yang dapat meningkatkan kesehatan dan kualitas hidup konsumennya tanpa mengurangi khasiat dari sarang burung Walet itu sendiri. Dengan konsumsi setiap hari, BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest akan membantu menjaga kesehatan dan kecantikan kulit.

Menutup diskusi media, Agnes mengatakan “Saat ini, sejalan dengan kampanye “Beauty Starts from Within” yang telah diluncurkan tahun lalu, BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest sedang mencari figur perempuan yang bersinar di usia 30an, yaitu mereka yang sangat menjaga kesehatan dan kecantikan tubuh terutama kulitnya dari dalam serta mampu memancarkan kecantikan karakternya melalui prestasi yang dicapai pada usia 30an. Jika rekan-rekan berminat, silakan follow Twitter kami @BrandsBirdsNest dan Like Facebook fan page kami di Brand’s Bird’s Nest, disana akan ada instruksi selengkapnya.”

 “BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest setia menemani dalam gaya hidup sehari-hari perempuan yang memasuki usia 30 maupun berada dalam dekade usia 30an karena sudah waktunya bagi perempuan usia 30an untuk menjaga kesehatan dengan memperhatikan pola makan dan asupan gizinya untuk mendapatkan kecantikan dari dalam.”

BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest dengan gula batu mengandung 100% sarang burung walet asli dan pilihan yang diproduksi dengan metode ilmiah. Hadir di Indonesia dalam kemasan 42 gram dan 70 gram. BRAND’S® Bird’s Nest membantu mempercantik dan meremajakan kulit perempuan menjelang 30 maupun usia 30an jika dikonsumsi secara rutin, yaitu 2 botol setiap hari selama 8 minggu.

So you see, 30 is like the beginning of life for women, it’s a time where everything should be settled, physically in her prime and ready to take on the world.
That’s why Brand’s Bird’s Nest drink is having a competition to find those Shining 30’s. I hope to be one of them.

With Brand’s Bird’s Nest drink in my hand, beautiful skin and natural health will stay on my side.


Just ‘pop it open and let the sweet taste of youth and hydration be with me. How does it taste? Like agar meet jello, no after taste, so it’s quite a clean feeling, with sweet syrup made from rock sugar. And it is a great dessert, I love it better when it’s cold.


Here’s a close up look.

Try it and enjoy the effect of a bouncy skin, moist and softer.

A post just for lips is here, none other with the products from Lip On Lip that I recently got from the event with Skin Aqua. Same big company as in Rohto.


The first thing is Pure Lips, a simple lip balm in a shape like a lipstick, I wish they made it cuter in terms of packaging since the product itself is quite cute. Bergamot and a whola lotta beeswax. I event let my 7 yr old gal use it when her lips are chappy. We both enjoy the citrus scent, smoothness and even thou’ it’s a bit oily, it helps the skin on the lips to heal.

It can also be used as lube for scrubbing the lips. Use a lot of them, just keep applying on the lips until it felt ‘too much’ then get some sugar and scrub it up. Clean the leftover with cotton pad or rinse it up with warm water. Result? A smooth lips. After the scrubbing process, use the lip balm again, it will appeared much more glossy.


Beside Lip Balm, Lip on Lip also carries water color, here’s some details from Rohto Indonesia:

Mine is in Strawberry Red, yums!


Sleek packaging with longer look too. This one is stylish.


Contain vit E and UV protector too ^^


Here they are. Pure Lips and Water Color


Pure lips looks like conventional lipstick while Water Color  is slimmer. Let’s see them on the lips.

While Pure Lips gives nothing but gloss, the  Water Color in Strawberry Red gives me a red hint of strawberry.

Both comfortable, both smooth and watery on the lips. Water Color can be used daily without being too much since the sheer color (mine-red) looks soft.

Details from http://www.yslbeautyus.com

Yves Saint Laurent reveals the 1st beauty “antidote” to short nights, a new product inspired by the beauty secrets of professionals. An ultra-gentle resurfacing and re-texturing concentrate to smooth the cutaneous micro-relief and re-plump the skin. Upon awakening, the skin quality is transformed, visibly smoother and more radiant, as after a good night sleep. Fresh and unified, the complexion is ready for a flawless make-up application.

How to use:

Apply on cleansed skin as a night treatment, may be applied in the morning as well.

I’ve tried using the product at night and morning (both after cleansing-toning-serum). And I like it better as a night treatment since I want the ‘juice’ to  stay longer untouched. Since on the day time, I need to top it off with sun protection, make up and so on. At night, it will be the final layer and Iove how smooth it is.

The Beauty Sleep is a milkish gel that feels comfortable on the skin. Smells really good (like any other YSL product) and gentle to the touch. Convenient as it is far from sticky and give the skin a glistening look, another reason why it is suitable to be used at night time. But hey, if you’re looking for a plumped skin anytime, it can be use anytime as well. 

It provide hydration, radiance, and better skin from one use. Use it every night for that pampering love all night long.

Hello 🙂

Last week I was invited to SKIN AQUA Beauty Talk

They want to introduce the products that have been here for months and officially greet us as bloggers for Skin Aqua.


Skin Aqua comes in 4 types:

UV Mild Milk
UV Moisture Milk
UV Whitening Milk and below on the video is
UV Moisture Gel, for normal-oily skin.



The brand that carries by Rohto, mainly focus on the sun protection for the skin with the love from Aqua.

Wanna see the how Skin Aqua works?




Very cute isn’t it?

And now I’m here to find out more. and test the products.





The event at Tartine, will soon begin, in anticipation the whole room is filled with beauty bloggers.



None of us completely clueless about Skin Aqua, but we want to hear more. There is also a machine that can check our aging process due to the sun, it was so crowded, I didn’t get a chance to try it.
Some bloggers are afraid since the result is scary heehee.

But sun does gives us ‘scary’ skin if we didn’t protect our skin from the bad rays. Not all rays are bad, only some. Skin Aqua protects us from some bad rays from the sun.




Ms Ditta (Skin Aqua) , Fukura Akiyoshi (PT.Rohto) , and Arinda Christ. They are the hosts, they are sharing product details from Skin Aqua, the background of the company and current trends.


These are the main attraction in the event. Skin Aqua products. We were able to try them on the spot and some other brand from PT. Rohto such as Lip on Lip.

.

This is me and Priscil, after the event we manage to take some picture together.



Unfortunately the event have to end and I have to go back home, below is my review for the Aqua Skin ^__^ but first a bit glimpse of Lip On Lip

.



A review for Lip on Lip will soon comes up too heehee.


Now, let’s enjoy the review for Aqua Skin.


Since my skin is dry, I get mine in UV Mild Milk. And actually, this is not my first time using Aqua Skin, in Singapore and Japan the product is widely used and available in almost all beauty store, I’ve try them when I still lived in Singapore years ago and amazed by how light Aqua Skin is.

.

What makes Skin Aqua different from sun block? The ingredients! Skin Aqua mainly focused on hydration, that’s why it is called Skin Aqua . . . Aqua, as in H2O. Skin Aqua also contains Vit E and Collagen that beneficial to our skin. We’ve heard a lot about Hyaluronic Acid as it brings hydration, in Skin Aqua the Hyaluronic Acid has been modified to absorb better  and stays longer on the skin. Skin Aqua can be used daily and not just ‘can be used’, they are beneficial to our skin. Protects from the bad rays of the sun, moist and hydrated the skin, and with the Vit E, an antioxidant to the skin too.

.

I get 4 samples sizes as well, but 2 are the same, so 3 of them are UV Moisture Milk, UV Whitening Milk and UV Mild Milk. Take note only the UV Moisture Milk contains SPF 50 PA+++ while the others are SPF 25 PA ++ and SPF 20 PA ++, so the UV Moisture Milk is the highest SPF in all three (four if including Moisture Gel SPF 30 PA ++)

.



Here’s what’s amazing, in terms of texture, UV Moisture Milk is the lightest while UV Mild Milk turns to be the creamiest, perfect for dry skin.

But all three are comfortable and delightful to be used daily. Take note that they are not sun blocks ya, so if you stays in the beach for hours when the sun is up there, or other kind of outdoor sports, please use sun blocks instead of Skin Aqua. Skin Aqua is perfect to be used daily, indoors and normal exposure of outdoor without being too much.

Say good bye to sticky sun block, say hello to Skin Aqua for daily use, comfortable, smooth, soft skin protected from the sun.

From shiseido.com

Description:

Smoothly draws a long-lasting line of concentrated colour to dramatically emphasize eyes.
  • DERMATOLOGIST AND OPHTHALMOLOGIST-TESTED.

Comes in two shades:
Black, which is mine 
and
Brown.



I wish the stick comes in longer version but I have no complain at all with the brush, only the tip end is movable with the rest stays firms, so when applied it can give finer lines without fail. It wont keep running into wide lines.

The cream is thick indeed, I thought it look thick but not that thick, it was ‘that’ thick.

.

I tried playing around with the wider side first and as usual before actually use the product, blend it well at the back of my hand first. It’s not easy since the consistency of the cream but it definitely gives me a bold darkest black.

Variety of result from the brush, wide side, thin line from using the horizontally, and when blending it.

Based on the thin line it was not easy to keep a straight full line with even darkness, some bold, some fading. Some even like dots after dots. I don’t think it is possible to create a full line at one stroke, it need multiple times.

I’ve tried the brush on my eye lines as well and I love how the brush still gentle enough given how firm it is. But again the inconsistency, I have to apply several time for a full line. Since the cream is thick and heavy, a primer is essential, it helps the cream to glide smoother and finer too.

Wait around 2-3 minutes for the liner to be completely dry and it will set for the whole day. It depends on how many the cream applied, the thinner it is, the faster it dries and so on.

Waterproof? It was tough! Like really tough, I try to rub it as well, rinse with a bit of soap, it stays on the skin, like stays there for good . . .  until a makeup remover comes of course.

Clean to sublime expert serum make up remover is a precise and efficient removal step to get rid of even the strongest makeup, impurities and beautify the skin in just one gesture.

How to use:

On dry skin apply the milky pinkish light cream and massage with the fingertips. Remove any excess without the need of water.


I draw some waterproof eyeliner from Shiseido, it was really waterproof. Wait for the eyeliner to set and dry before put a bit of Clean To Sublime on a dry skin.

Just like using any cleansing oil, massage them well and take you time so the cleanser have time to ‘crack’ down the makeup and ‘melts’

Grab a cotton pad or a facial tissue and swipe it off, it’s gone!

Massage the rest with more of the cleanser and everything is taken off. I’ve tried using a lipstick, foundation, eye shadows, blush on, and everything on the skin, it’s gone, but, there’s one but, I’m not recommending the product for usage on eye’s area.

Benefit: No matter how lazy I am, I can just massage Clean To Sublime with dry hands and to the skin directly without the need of water and getting wet. Convenient to be use anywhere and anytime. Plane and traveling is my ‘favorite’ places as water is limited and during those exhausting nights when trips to the bathroom seems kilometers away.

With the effectiveness and gentleness of Clean To Sublime, I’m recommending the products just about to anyone who use makeup ^0^
