Hi dear,

Who have chapped soles? Dry, coarse ? Or at least in desperate need of exfoliation?

Me! And I’m not in the mood (or ever) to do that dry scrubbing thingy, or having pedicured every now and then. So I try this Bebe Foot Mask from Etude House.

I’ve tried this kind of product before, Baby Foot. And it work so well. Too bad I can’t find it here. But, Etude House is here with the Bebe Foot Mask ^0^ hopefully it works out well too.

-*-

I know how harsh can they be so I made sure I don’t use this kind of product too often, for me once every 2-3 years is enough.

-*-

It’s a simple product where all needed is inside the packaging and read it thoroughly. Clean the feet, dry them, open the plastic which shaped like feet and put them in. Tape it so they wont run.

-*-

Make sure the feet stay inside the plastic as long as needed but if ones happen to have allergy where the feet feels too hot, burning sensation, very itchy or other kind of discomfort, perhaps it is best to take it off and wash it away. There may be reactions that needed to be avoided and can’t use this product.

Me? I’m feeling a cool slippery gel, a bit itchy but very little and it happens during the last minutes. I wash it off and dislike the acidic smell of the gel.

And I just leave them dry after a good rinsing action.

-*-


1,2,3 days nothing, on the 4th day the skin start peeling from the heels, and this image down here is a week.

It will keep on peeling for 2 weeks max (on my case) and some may experience differences. There is itchiness on day 3-4 which for me was nerve wrecking since other brand doesn’t carry ‘itchy’ in their ingredients.

But now as remember my days back then ^^ it was quite okay and the result is a new skin for the feet, not as smooth as baby’s feet but better than before. During the journey from week 1 to week 2 where there’s a chunk amount of skin peeling of is quite disgusting and interesting at the same time haha. My feet feels dirty all the time as if I’m not cleaning the floor properly.

They look kinda ugly and I avoided going out for a while to their appearance. But hey, after the caterpillar stay in a cocoon, comes the beautiful butterfly ^^.


This product worth a try and suitable as a gift to any hard working mom.


Ooohhh, another product from Etude House with the theme Eraser Show.

This is a mascara cleaner, a specific product for cleaning the mascara.


I love their choices of designs, colors and even the fonts used. It’s like the ultimate cuteness in terms of packaging, like there’s a team of people specially form just to figure out the packaging and how to make it eye catching and so pretty ^__^

The Mascara Cleaner shaped almost like a mascara, with white liquid inside and flexible rubbery top. There’s a small grids so the lashes have places to sneaks in and making sure the cleanser does the job better.

Here’s a video of me using the product.

-*-

I guess it pretty sums up my review. I like the soft flexible tool and white gooey cleanser but it is still messy, visible seen on the upper lids when the cotton is cleaning the mascara, the liquid spread. But on the other hand the Mascara Cleaner does do their job well in removing the mascara from the lashes. The tools also helps cleaning the mascara all the way to the roots when usually hard to reach. The white gooey liquid is skin friendly and around the eyes too.  Perfect for specific usage, but if using a full makeup, I still prefer a cleansing oil to clean everything in a  go. Maybe I use the product when there’s still some leftovers by conventional method.


Hi everyone,


as a makeup lover, I love to try on new beauty products, including mascara. Some are excellent in doing their job while some… sucks X__x. I have to look my best on every event so perfection is what I’m looking for.

Mascara is best used in dry condition, not humid, so the liquid/cream may harden and completely dry, however some mascara couldn’t stay harden/dry when exposed to the hot and humid temp in Jakarta. Same thing with sweat and tears. The result? A panda eyes, where the mascara easily smudges and well, melts. Under the eye become black and the makeup is ruin. I want to clean the area affected by the mascara only without the foundation/powder or whatever base under it.

In most cases I use tissue, but usually it will make the case even worse. I use a makeup remover and all the makeup underneath also gone, leaving the eyes area looks weird and uneven skin tone with the rest of the face.

The answer?

Eraser Show Remover Bar by Etude House.

It’s like a box of cotton buds, but it have a liquid inside the transparent tube. Just open the other end and the watery cleanser will damped the bottom side and put the upper side back on. Use the damped bud to clean only the mascara on the skin (eye bag area).





Then use the dry bud to dry the skin. The remover is so gentle but effective in removing a messy mascara. The shape of the bud also suitable for small area. But I wish the tip is a bit sharper, like some cotton bud I’ve seen where it is a bit more like triangle or cones.



This is the result after usage. 4 images of 360 degree view, where the liquid picks up the messy mascara but only a very few makeup base. So under the eyes after being cleaned still have my foundation and some powders left.

Now, I kept the buds inside my purse/bag all the time, even though I’m running about with a melting mascara, I can clean it anytime, anywhere. May be used to clean eyeliners as well.


Hi everyone!

Last week for the first time I went on a haul at Multiply at the comfort of my own home. Most of the time I feel doubt in shopping online knowing some of my friends complaining about the ‘bad services’ given. Such as:

– after payment the online shop went mia (missing in action)
– products are fake/counterfeit
– expired goods
– lost mails?
– items seems opened and used (when payment made for brand new item)
– a very long delivery time (like a month)
and yes, still other excuses and reasons of why we shouldn’t shop online . . . unless they are trusted seller, like some shops at Multiply.

How do we recognize these shops? Do we need to check on them one by one? No need!



Multiply has done it for you. Just look at the Trusted seller logo in each shop and fret not, your purchase and as a buyer, you are protected from problems that may come from purchasing online.

So when I have the chance to try shopping at Multiply, instead of shopping at one online shop, I went on several cosmetic online shops so I can ‘test’ how things are going there. I found the system in Multiply to be very user friendly, where usually we need to pay individually, in Multiply even thou I bought many items from different online shops, I just put them in one shopping cart and pay them all at once, no need multiple payments.

(Cherry Lip Gel Patch and Tony Moly Cat Chu Lipstick from Korean Noona)


And since I already have an account in Multiply, my address is saved as well, so I don’t have to keep writing my address several times.

Confirmation are given in several different inbox message automatically. So I can check the progress one by one. Some shops response immediately, while some need 2 days.

(Etude Eraser Show Remover Bar from Rie Butik)


Cosmo for Beauty is the winner, they send me a reply almost immediately that my payment has been received and will send the product the day after.

(Egyptian Magic Cream from Cosmo for Beauty)


Petite Collection and Nadia Fashion Butik send me a JNE number the next day.

(All was done without I have to ask anything)

Then,

Nadia Fashion Butik, Petite Collections, Cosmo for Beauty and Olivianneshop sent the goods in 2 days directly to my home (very impressive).

The rest come in 2 more days (which means 4 days after payment). Korean Noona forgot 1 item and after I ask about it, they say it was oos (out of stock) and the refund is made after I give them my bank acc no. Kesho Shop also forgot to add one item I’ve paid and send the good the next day.



The Cherry Blossom shampoo and rinse (conditioner) smells really good and instantly turn my hair smooth and silky.




PocketBac from Olivianne
Smells really good and feels soft on the skin.
Everything went so well, so I made more purchases in the lingerie departments ^__^ why buying lingerie online

1. The selection of choices are vary.
2. Privacy (for some reason in Jakarta, I found many ogling eyes when shopping lingerie and many times there’s men in the shop >.<
3. Comfortable to browse around and pick the one I like, plus many shop comes with details for sizes too.

Hi girls!

This is the first time I try Holika Holika, I have mine from Priscilla, we are doing a beauty swap nowadays heehee, since I am curious about Korean products and she interested in the products I have. It’s a win win situation for us, maybe you should do that with your besties as well.

From the official website of Holika Holika all the details are in Korean, basically, here are some info:

It’s a facial soap made and inspired by egg to make the skin looks as smooth as egg (I guess like peeled boiled eggs) and this product have been raved by those with oily skin as it tightens the skin’s pore. Help clean up the blackheads as well after several usage (like maybe 2 weeks). Use a facial cleanser daily and this cute egg-shaped will easily lather up for a smooth looking skin. Massage the lather on the skin and wait 15 minutes before rinsing off (yes, I read it on Sasa.com) and after rinsing the skin will feel tighter. So it’s like a cleanser and mask in one.

.

My say:

The lather is somewhat like a glycerin soap clear at first and not much, then somewhat like shampoo, light and abundant. I applied those lather on my skin and massage it a bit. When I waited during the 15 minutes the foam feels tighter and tighter as it dries up. Literally like egg white after being foamed it will stiffed up. Really stiff. Then I rinsed it with room temperature water, and massage it again and it will lather again and appears this squeaky tight skin and hmm, where’s my blackheads? Is it just me, my blackheads are away? My skin looks fairer in an instant too.

I try the soap on my dad as well, he have aging skin with oily type too. According to my dad on some part he feels sting, probably because the skin is dehydrated and irritation (from past irritation). But afterward he feels the skin tighter and help dries up a few acne he have (grown up acne).

Overall I think the product is unique, can be used as normal cleanser or cleanser and a mask (2 in 1), not suitable for those who have allergy to egg white, oily skin will cherish it as the product helps clears the skin from sebum and do a deep cleanse as well. May be used for all skin type.

The packaging alone is a winner. Egg carton and next to it is Sweet Cake Fragrance from Etude. Also adorable. It’s like a lollipop.

Inside is a swirl of pink stripe smells like candy, literally like candy, or a sweet cake. This is way too sweet and girlie for me and the fragrance also last for 1 hour (max) so I gave it to my girl, she loves it 🙂 the solid perfume is like her new toy. Smells sweet and delightful without being overwhelming. The mirror also handy, any gal would love a mirror, but it doesn’t relate to the concept of solid perfume, I don’t think I ever need a mirror to apply perfume . . . or do I? Perhaps the product have other function? I’m clueless as all the details are in Korean. But I’m amazed, it’s like most Korean products are in this brilliant packaging, super duper cute and fun to look at.

This is the first time I’ve tried BB in compact

The color is mine alright, the texture is slightly heavier than two way cake


This is my before look, a cleaned, toned and moisturized skin plus some make up base, since I was told I have to use the base before BB compact




This is the result, it was really difficult for me, the color is too white, yes, white in exact. The BB compact for me it’s tricky, hard to blend in, maybe they shouldn’t put the buff there, it should have been foundation brush, I think it would help me heaps.

Now it’s hard to proceed with the review since the result is not finished yet, the texture, the color  of the powder plus the size and material of the buff provided is all wrong.

I’ll be back with a foundation brush next time since the tools is not provided and recommended by the brand. I’ve tried using it dry and on moist skin, actually, it work better on dry skin.


>Super Volumeade 5

>

I love lip gloss, especially those who are not sticky, it’s a perfect getaway for being natural and sensuous. Now does Etude Super Volumeade gives me that satisfaction? We’ll see..



I love the cherry color that I think enhance any skin color since it’s look natural reddish. How to use it: After you open the lid twist it on clockwise direction and the bottom part will push the ‘jelly’ out. There’s a scent of mint coming out.

The color itself is subtle and leaves my lips with a soft hint of red. The minty feeling last for 10 minutes, it gives my lip a feeling of swollen (not pain at all okay). The product itself is easy to use but you still need a mirror to do it.

Sticky? Yup, but in a medium range, I found some other lip gloss far more sticky than this one. It does gives my lip more volume and the minty feeling gives my lips a boost of a Jolie sensation.

I like transparent glittery nail polish since even you’re a complete mess in self-coloring process the fact that it is transparent wont give you any trouble. Perfect for a quick makeover when you are our partying.

You can easily apply it according to your heart desire from very light to darker shade. It is a clear blue as a blue can get but a bit of turquoise shade. It dries pretty fast and last around a week without chipping, but during cleaning you need to pay attention to the glitters as sometime it can be stuck.

You can also apply this nail polish on top of another color to create a different look.
