Hi all,

lashes are the thing that can make the eyes looks bigger, more attractive, and seductive. In conjunction with my previous post, I guess today will be all about eyes ^^ and the areas near them.

Shu Uemura eyelash curler is one hot item in the cosmetic world. Why?

-*-


Details from shuuemura-usa.com:

The emblematic, best-selling and award-winning shu uemura eyelash curler featuring enhanced design and upgraded features for ultimate precision that delivers the perfect curl. Upgraded silicone pad in a new “mushroom” shape provides a protective, stay-put edge for improved safety and optimum curl. Upgraded patented hinge with precise engineering applies perfect amount of pressure on eyelashes. Curved angle suits all eye shapes. Calculated shape and size of frame length and ergonomic handles ensure stability and control.

Impressive, right?!

I get mine a few months ago and let’s face it, this is a high quality product that has won awards for all the right reasons.

The packaging, sleek design that many has tried to copy (yet failed), the cute emblems that sometime attached to it (mon shu girl) or sometime a bit twist (the golden version). And mine, the original, the one that started it all.

-*-


Easy to be used, made with precision and some even swore it last for years and years to come. I’ve tried some other brand and well truth need to be said, this is the only brand for eyelash curler. Those fakes or perhaps the not-so-sophisticated has hurt my lids, broke my lashes, tweak my lashes in an unnatural way, bend the lashes forcefully and other unfortunate events. So, for me a great eyelash curler is a very important matter. And Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is a great eyelash curler that gave me perfect curls, no pain process, just gain, long lasting result (the whole day) and yes, like their description, precision.

-*-

Tips from the makeup artist, curl the lashes in three point, near the roots (never exactly at the roots as they might easily plucked the lashes, middle part and at the ends. Around 10 seconds in each point and on upward direction and there it is a curled up lashes ready for mascara. Add some liners too and bigger and far more attractive eyes instantly.

-*-

Sometime I use false lashes too and the curler helps the lashes to stay close to the falsies.

Love it!

Hi lovely eyes,

has anyone told you that? I had! The feeling is wonderful and made me feels like I have the prettiest eyes on the planet ^^

Unfortunately (sucks, there’s always unfortunately), these eyes need help to stay pretty for years and years to come. That’s why I’m really happy and keen on trying Lancome Genifique Yeux Light Pearl. The new item from Lancome specially made for the pretty eyes.

Have you read it? 360 degree of massaging and eye contour transformation. Me waaaannnttttttt




Smoother skin near the eyes, deflated eye bags and luminous too? It’s really engineered for the eyes, sounds too good to be true? Look at the applicator and let me testify some for you as well.

-*-

The teardrop shaped metal ball feels cold on the skin, perfect for the eye bags, the one that usually need cooling action for compressing. The cloudy slightly gel liquid is like a dew touching the eyes area. Comfortable and gives somehow a delightful feeling, it’s either the massaging action or the texture of the metal tear drop pressed against the skin with a lovely serum, or just both.

-*-

Perfect for a lazy bum who rarely gives their eyes a daily massaging or even a great product to be put on. It’s two in one ^^

Will I keep using it? Yes!
Will I recommend the product? Yes! For everyone start from early 20’s or when the agings start to take control more than ever before.

Tips on using it?
On a clean face after toner and facial serum, before essence, moisturizer and sun protection.

The staff from Lancome told me the product can be used anytime, including after makeup, but I’ve tried using after makeup and it melts my makeup away plus the applicator become tainted, so, I stick to my how to on the Tips above, use it during skincare time for a younger, prettier and perkier looking eyes.




Hi everybody,

I’m here with Nivea Indonesia. Recently they’ve launch new products from the body series. Instead of plain regular lotion, the name body serum comes up, why?


dr. Hanny Nilasari, SpKK selaku staf pengajar Ilmu Kesehatan Kulit dan Kelamin FKUI-RSCMmenyatakan, Serum merupakan bahan tambahan dalam formulasi perawatan kulit dan dapat terserap lebih cepat dan dapat berpenetrasi hingga ke lapisan kulit yang lebih dalam. Seperti produk perawatan kulit lainnya, serum dapat bekerja sebagai anti-aging, dan membantu mencerahkan kulit. Kelebihan serum, kandungan bahan aktifnya cukup tinggi, sehingga penggunaan serum
akan menunjukkan hasil dalam waktu yang lebih singkat dibandingkan dengan pelembab biasa atau produk perawatan kulit lainnya.

In the lovely box, there’s two products, a charm bracelet, CD, booklet and agenda.

I’m so interested with the body serum since this is my first time trying on Nivea’s Body Serum. For Nivea’s fan for more than 20 years, especially the body and lips product, I would like to keep myself in front with their latest item on the market.

-*-


The two new products is made to help brighten up the skin tone, one for the dry skin and one for the very dry skin. Please do watch my video here:

What do you think about that? Are you interested to try them on? Here’s some more facts I want to share with you.

Clearly if you’re an outdoor person and very active, sun protection is highly recommended for daily maintenance. Keep the skin hydrated and sun protected is crucial.

-*-

It’s not just for beauty reasons like keeping the skin fair, but kept them healthy. A healthy skin can work better as our natural barrier to the environment. Healthier skin also more elastic so they doesn’t get hurt easily and looks glowing with natural radiant too. Nivea Body Serum gives me option to stays active outdoor and indoor.

-*-

Indoor? Yes, all of us who stuck indoor either for classes or our jobs demands us to, also get sun rays from the windows. I’ve done a test where I sit in a car on the left side. The left part of my body tend to be dryer even thou the sun haven’t touched the skin directly, while the right part is moister since there’s zero sun rays, direct nor indirect. So even thou we’re not outdoor, anywhere the sun touches us (direct or indirect) our skin still ‘suffer’ the consequences.

Of course, I’m not denying the benefits of the sun (Vit D), but around 15 minutes a day is consider adequate. That’s why we need SPF on our skin daily to prolong that 15 minutes.

Body Serum yang diperkaya dengan 96% kemurnian Vitamin E dan Grape Seed Extract untuk mengatasi masalah kulit kering.

Rp. 15.000 (75 ml), Rp. 30.000 (200 ml)
-*-

Look at that with just Rp.30.000 per 200 ml, I think Nivea is quite generous, especially for a cheapskate (like me) heehee I thought the product will at least cost Rp 50.000, it’s not, hooray!

NIVEA UV Extra Whitening Advanced Moisture Care Serum
Melindungi kulit dari sinar matahari dan mencerahkan kulit dalam waktu 2 minggu.
Body Serum dengan kandungan Vitamin C dari Camu camu dan95% Purity Vitamin C derivative sebagai antioksidan, serta licorice extract untuk membantu proses pencerahan kulit.

Either UV Extra Whitening Serum or Intensive Moisture Serum, your call ^^ I think both serum is light enough, smells good (original or fruity), doesn’t give my skin any white cast, oily nor greasy effect, but just the right amount of moisture, low price, comfortable on the skin and unisex too.

To ensure the optimal benefit, just be sure to use them every day and like any other product with SPF, clean the skin thoroughly after each usage.

Thank you.
