Holika Holika Is In The House Yo!

Sunday, October 20, 2013

As a fan of Korean beauty products, I am super happy that Holika Holika now opens in Mall Taman Anggrek (MTA). I can say that this mall is my favorite mall in West Jakarta after Puri Indah (cause its location not far from my residence). Not only because MTA has a wide range of Korean shop, it also has my 2 top fave milk tea shop, Share Tea and Calais!

Back to the main point, I always wanted to use Holika Holika products, but they only sell it online. Ugh.

As I run out my BB creams, I've been a devoted user of TonyMoly Honey-bee BB cream, see the review here. But then, I tried to change my BB cream again, I like TonyMoly, it didn't break me out, but then it's somewhat too oily for my combination skin. I changed to Etude House CC Cream in Silky, I like it that I don't have to blot my face (I know it's crazy!), but it doesn't give a good coverage, I had to use base cream first. Back then, I used Baby Choux Sweet Recipe from Etude House as my base. I got too tired cause it's not efficient, not only because I bought both the CC Cream and base cream in Singapore, but it takes twice of my makeup time LOL. I've been thinking of using a product that I can buy easily in Jakarta.

I bought the Petit BB Cream in Clearing, it contains tea tree, suitable for my acne prone, combination skin. It has SPF 30 PA++, basically the same SPF and PA like Honey-Bee. Besides, it is CHEAPER! I bought for IDR 128.000. I know it is rather expensive to buy it at the store compared to online. But the convenience of trying the product directly to your skin, you can't compare that!

Holika Holika Petit BB Clearing

It was like OMGYES when I saw Holika Holika store in MTA. I don't know a lot about their products, but I know that I always wanted to try their Pig Nose Clear Blackhead series. So I bought the pore strip, IDR 99.000 for 10 pieces.

I even edited it on my iPhone. HA! I'm using Papelook application :P

As you can see on the picture, that was my 'pig-nose' regime, I use Eggpore from TonyMoly first, then I use the pore strip and I end it by applying the Ice Queen Green Tea pack from Tony Moly. FYI, I put the Ice Queen in the refrigerator.
I tried it today, the feeling of using it didn't have any differences with the Biore one lor. Biore was even cheaper. I like Skin Food's one better though. Holika Holika has a cute packaging, that's it.

And so here's the result of the Clearing Petit BB cream. 

So far I love this BB cream! The coverage is medium but works great on me.
Here I'm using:
  • Diorskin Nude Compact from Dior in Rosy Beige 32
  • The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit in shade 2
  • MAC Zoom Lash
  • Dior Addict Lipstick in 578 Diorkiss
Catch you later, folks!

Miracle For a Miracle

Thursday, March 21, 2013
I think as a girl. It is an essential thing to do facial in every month. I've started doing facial treatments since 2008? Back then, I usually visited to the salon for every 2-3 month. However, nowadays, I'm getting concerned about my skin. It gets more and more sensitive that I couldn't stand a month without going to the salon :0 The thing about having a facial treatment is, you'll get super satisfied after 3 days of the treatment until the rest of the month. Usually, the first 3 days are the worst, because your skin would be super red because of the extraction. My skin is a sensitive one, so yes, my face would turn red because of it. 

To be honest, having a facial treatment is not that relaxing! I'll be lying to say so, LOL. It's relaxing JUST at the beginning, 45ish minutes, 'cause you'll be massaged and stuff. My skin is an acne prone skin, so sadly, my face would not get massaged. Too bad! BOO!

Today I had my facial treatment at Miracle Aesthetic Clinic, it is located in Taman Anggrek Mall. They actually have many branches, check it here for details.

From Left (above) to Right (bottom)
1. The nebulizer; 2. The bed, it actually has a nice bed cover to make sure you wouldn't get too cold. Pardon me for putting my bag, it's supposed to be sterile; 3. The wash basin that is placed next to the bed; 4. Sponge, towel, and stuff.

The plus sides about having treatment at Miracle are:
  • It is very sterile. They use new sponge, tank, towel, head towel? I don't know what it's called, but you can see it at the picture above. The beautician will always wash their hands with the soap and use a hand sanitizer every time they get into the room, you will even be asked to use the hand sanitizer before the treatment.
  • You'll be placed in an individual room. It is very private and convenient :)
  • Yes, it is that convenient that you can even order food from the outside! HAHA. Actually, I ordered Kiyadon earlier before the treatment. So yeah, I ate on the bed :D
The minus sides are:
  • There are only 2 branches in Jakarta, one in Kemang, one in TA. Both aren't near from my home :'(
  • It's more expensive if you compare it to Natasha Skin Care, Esthetic Melrose, Erha Clinic and stuff.
I also got my pimple injected on chin, it didn't hurt at all! Maybe I've gotten used to it. Whiteheads and blackheads extraction are 10x more hurtful than the injection.

How much did I spend for the treatment? I spent for a total IDR 1M.

My treatment was Acne Bio Facial, Nebulizer, Anti Acne and Oily Ampul, Peel-off Whitening Mask and not to mention the injection.

I seriously couldn't imagine if I had more than a pimple! Sure it must be really hurtful for many injections! Thank God I only had one pimple T-T

And after the treatment, my face got red, especially when I use the serum.

The sad thing after having that treatment, my mom picked me up at the mall and when we called for our driver, unfortunately, our car's accumulator got broken. Therefore we had to wait for the Shop&Drive's guy to come and bring us a new one. We got stuck at the mall for one hour 'cause it was raining so badly, waiting for taxi were pointless as well. My mom actually wanted to visit her friend at the Siloam Hospitals, because of this unfortunate event, she had to cancel it :(

Last weeeek, I ordered some cute things via internet, thus this week I got some new things. I have a new beanie, new pouch for my Instax camera and new aromatherapy lamp from my dad! You'd probably known this if you followed me on Instagram (follow, follow!) and Path :P

The beanie!
To tell the truth I wanted the pointy ones instead of this. However, it's okay.
Many people asked me where would I wear this beanie, I totally have no idea. LOL. Maybe to the airport? Or somewhere cold & snowy? ;)

Hi Shappo!
This is Shappo from San-X Sentimental Circus. Clearly my most favourite character from San-X. I like Korilakkuma as well. So that when I was about to buy this pouch, it was a hard decision to choose between them. Then I think about it again, I like Shappo more than Korilakkuma ^^

The Aromatherapy Lamp.
I told ya I'm a fan of pink! Be it pastel pink, salmon pink, hot pink, shocking pink. It doesn't matter for me.
This one is in Barbie pink!!!! Who wouldn't love the color?!
It is from (click to visit).
The essential oils.
On the first try I use the Stress Relief due to the stress of editing a video for my intercultural project at school.

That's it, folks! It's 1AM now in here. I'm going to sleep with the Sleep Tight oil! ^^
Bonne nuit~

Visual Dreams

Hi people!!

I recently bought a patch, a really good patch that I can even compare to the Nexcare one! Some of you probably don't know what a patch is. Here, read my post that I blogged a couple of weeks ago.

Etude House AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot Patch
IDR 38k for 16 patches and they come in 3 size!

I surely will stick on this product from now on.

By the wayyyy, I am not into make up, but you know, girls...., we need make up! So, in the next post, I'll reveal my make up kit ^^

Last Friday, I went to my friend's home and got my face a full make up! Including falsies, shading, and whatnot. I can't do a full make up. A simple one like applying eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara is enough for my daily make up. Can't even stand too long in front of the mirror. LOL. It was tiring but a lot of fun.

Behind The Scene?


They're all my good class mates at my university :D

Until the next post, people!
