Proudly Made in Indonesia

on
Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Well, as an Indonesian, I know I should have used many local products. Too bad I honestly don't use local products that much. After joining an Indonesian forum, I realized that there are a lot of good local products but I was just too skeptical about them. It turns out that local products are just as good as the imported ones!
So now, I'll be reviewing Indonesian products that I've used lately regularly!

1. Bedak Saripohatji
The packaging is very simple and vintage (hell yeah since 1927!)
Well, if you understand Indonesian then you might find this instruction really funny.

Has anyone heard of this? It's one of my fave skincare products. It's a corn-grain shaped powder that helps to prevent and dry a zit. How do I use it: mix 2 - 3 grains with white rose water (you can find the white rose water at Century, Guardian or hypermarkets, I'm using the one from Mustika Ratu), then use them as a facial mask. Leave them for 3 hours, after that you just need to clean it with your bare hand, no wash needed. Do this every night and leave it naturally until morning. Another good thing about this product is the cheap price! I bought five of them for IDR 10k! Yup. Only one USD :D so cheap yet effective!
Repurchase: YES

2. Mizzu Eyeliner Pen
I bought the brown color. They sell the black color as well.
The packaging comes perfectly fine with bubble wrap,
but I accidentally cut the packaging along the bubble wrap, that's why it looks messy.
As the ingredients, they are safe since it's registered to Indonesian FDA.

This eyeliner pen was such a phenomenon on Instagram, lots of public figure endorse it so I was curious ever since.

Even though I am not a newbie when it comes to eyeliners, I still find applying liners to my eye is somewhat difficult. LOL. Most of blogger's reviews about this eyeliners are it is an eyeliner for a newbie, but why do I find using a pen eyeliner is harder than the pencil or liquid ones? I don't know if it's only me or what. More practice needed, maybe?
Overall, the brown color turns out to be lighter than my usual liquid eyeliner which I almost never wear. I have these asian eyelids, although mine aren't monolids, but I feel like wearing eyeliners make my eyes appear smaller.
It's waterproof and it will still look okay as long as you don't rub it. Mine stays for 8 hours.
Price: IDR 20k
Repurchase: Probably YES

3. Mizzu Power Volume Mascara
They have a decent packaging, yes?
Mascara only come in black color, it is waterproof.
I like the wand.

For me wearing a mascara is a must, I curl my lashes first of course before coating my eyelashes. What I love about this mascara is the wand applicator, it won't make your eyelashes clumpy. I do apply 2 coats, though. Tip: make sure let it dry between coats. What I dislike about this mascara is the waterproof statement because it wasn't that waterproof. It'd probably work fine with people with curly lashes by nature, but not for me unfortunately *sighs*. Since it doesn't hold my curls, it was too time consuming for me to curl my lashes again.
Price: IDR 30k
Repurchase: NO

4. Marcks' Beauty Powder
 The front packaging.
I bet most of Indonesians must've seen this product!
It has salicylic acid in it! Which a plus side for people who have acne prone skin like me :)

I got mine the creme shade, it has three shade: white, rose, and creme. I've been researching before buying this, the creme color apparently still looks too whitey for most Indonesian. However, it blends quickly with my CC cream. It has a weird fragrance at first but I think I slowly get used to it. The powder is a loose powder. I prefer applying this powder with brush. Besides it's affordable price, you can find this loose powder easily everywhere. Even at your nearest mini mart!
Price: IDR 13k (it doesn't come with powder puff nor a mirror)
Repurchase: YES

HAPPY EARLY VALENTINE'S DAY, LOVES!! Let's spread the love everyday!

P.S: I bought all of the products online, except the Marcks' Beauty Powder. If you are interested in buying them, I could give you the contact person. If you wonder why I didn't even write the contact person, well it's because this is not a promotional purpose anyways :P

  15. I'm a fan of pen eyeliners like the Mizzu Eyeliner Pen - I just find them much easier to use! Brown is a great alternative to black for a softer daytime look as well :)

  17. That is right! Marck's Beauty Powder's shade is just too light for some people. Mizzu products are really trending, I guess. It's not just you, I find applying eyeliner with felt-tip pen type is pretty difficult too.

    Happy Valentine's Day to you!

  22. I wear Marks loose powder when i still in high school hahaha. i think the products is great. But big no for mizzu brands, i only wear mizzu eyeliner once, for the review and i don't want to use it again. The mizzu price is very cheap but still.. it's a waste to buy mizzu
