Review: Citra Korean Pink Orchid Series [Sponsored]

Hello ladies~ kali ini aku postingnya dengan menggunakan bahasa Indonesia ya, karena produk yang akan direview merupakan produk lokal yang menurutku sudah sangat populer di Indonesia. Siapa sih yang tidak kenal dengan salah satu produk kecantikan merk Citra? Citra merupakan salah satu brand lokal yang cukup terkenal terutama di lini produk body lotion dan lulur. Dulu waktu masih kuliah, aku malah pernah main-main ke rumah cantik Citra yang di Surabaya. Seru banget bisa spa dan massage dengan produk Citra.

Nah, beberapa waktu lalu aku mendapat kiriman dari Citra yang isinya rangkaian Citra Light Touch dan juga Citra Korean Pink Orchid series *yay~ thank you Citra*. Di post kali ini aku akan membahas mengenai rangkaian skincare dari Citra Korean Pink Orchid.

Pink Orchid merupakan rahasia kecantikan turun-temurun para wanita Korea. Pink orchid bermanfaat sebagai penghambat pembentukan melanin sehingga memberikan efek mencerahkan di kulit. Selain itu pink orchid juga kaya mineral yang secara alami ada pada kulit seperti zinc, magnesium, dan copper.

Kebanyakan wanita mendambakan kulit putih yang terkesan segar dan cerah. Akan tetapi, kulit putih saja tidak cukup karena jika hanya putih akan terkesan pucat dan terlihat tidak sehat. Kulit wajah yang putih dan merona tentu akan tampak lebih bagus jika dibandingkan dengan kulit putih bersih saja. Dengan adanya efek merona alami, maka wajah akan terlihat lebih bersinar dan kulit tampak sehat.


Memiliki kulit wajah yang cerah, merona alami dan lembut bersinar merupakan impian dari setiap perempuan. Untuk mewujudkan hal tersebut, Citra mengeluarkan 2 produk untuk rangkaian Korean Pink Orchid yang terdiri dari Facial Foam dan Moisturizer.



Facial Foam:
Packaging: Facial foam ini dikemas dalam kemasan tube plastik yang didominasi warna putih dan pink. Dekorasi pada kemasan merupakan bunga anggrek pink yang menjadi simbol dari produk ini.

Harga/ukuran: Rp 22.000 / 100gr


Tekstur, wangi dan manfaat: Facial foam ini memiliki tekstur sabun yang creamy. Cukup gunakan sedikit produk saja dan beri sedikit air, maka sabun akan menghasilkan busa yang banyak. Busa yang dihasilkan sangat lembut sehingga aman untuk kulit yang sensitif sekalipun. Warna sabunnya pink muda dan memiliki wangi bunga anggrek yang sangat menenangkan.



After effect setelah membilas wajah dengan air, kulit wajah terasa kencang / kesat tetapi tidak memberikan rasa seperti tertarik. Tidak terasa ada sisa sabun yang menempel. Selain itu, wajah terasa segar dan cerah setelah mencuci wajah.



Citra Korean Pink Orchid Moisturizer:
Packaging:  Moisturizer ini dikemas dalam glass-jar, ada separator pemisah antara tutup dan produk tetapi tidak ada bantuan alat aplikasi seperti sendok kecil/spatula.


Harga/ Ukuran: Rp 21.600 / 40g

Cara Pemakaian: Gunakan dua kali sehari pada wajah yang telah dibersihkan untuk tampak lebih putih berkilau sepanjang hari. Sesuai untuk semua jenis kulit


Tekstur, wangi, dan manfaat: Krim moisturizer ini berwarna pink muda dengan wangi bunga anggrek yang cukup kuat. Teksturnya cukup kental dan dengan penggunaan sedikit saja sudah cukup untuk mengcover seluruh wajah. Walaupun teksturnya yang cukup kental, krim ini tidak terasa berat jika digunakan pada wajah.

Setelah dibaurkan, kulit wajah menjadi matte (tidak mengkilap) dan krim ini memberikan efek cerah yang bisa langsung terlihat. Jika digunakan pada malam hari, saat bangun pagi keesokan harinya, wajah menjadi less oily jika dibandingkan dengan tidak menggunakan krim ini

Selain itu krim moisturizer ini mengandung UVA dan UVB yang membantu melindungi kulit dari sinar matahari yang dapat menyebabkan bintik hitam dan kulit hitam jika digunakan pada siang hari.

Kandungan bahan premium seperti Korean Pink Orchid, membuat produk ini terkesan "mahal" walaupun harga yang ditawarkan sangat terjangkau. Selain itu, produk-produk Citra juga bisa didapatkan dengan mudah di supermarket yang dekat dengan wilayah tempat tinggal kita.

Opini: 
Desain produk yang ditawarkan oleh Citra untuk rangkain Pink Orchid ini terkesan cukup mewah, terutama jika melihat kemasan moisturizernya yang terbuat dari glass-jar. Komplain utama saya adalah tidak adanya applikator yang bisa digunakan untuk mengambil krim di dalam jar. Hal ini tentu berpengaruh pada kehigienisan produk. Sehingga kita harus selalu ingat untuk mencuci tangan dengan bersih sebelum mencelupkan jari untuk menggunakan produk ini. Untuk facial foam, menurut saya desainnya cukup standar seperti sabun cuci wajah pada umumnya.
Secara keseluruhan, saya sangat puas dengan rangkaian produk Citra Pink Orchid. Untuk facial foamnya, saya suka dengan efek kencang yang diberikan setelah mencuci wajah. Untuk moisturizer saya suka dengan efek matte dan ringan. Kombinasi kedua produk ini bekerja dengan sangat baik di kulitku. Kulit yang kencang dan segar setelah mencuci wajah kemudian ditimpa dengan krim moisturizer yang memberikan efek cerah dan tidak mengkilap. Efek cerah yang diberikan pun tidak terkesan pucat melainkan lebih ke arah bersinar dan kulit wajah terkesan sehat. Thumbs up untuk Citra!


Dengan kandungan Korean Pink Orchid di dalam produk yang terdengar mahal di telinga akan tetapi harga yang cukup terjangkau dan jumlah produk yang banyak (sehingga dapat dipakai hingga beberapa bulan), rangkaian ini tentu sangat layak untuk dicoba oleh teman-teman yang lain yang ingin memiliki wajah cantik, segar, merona alami.

FOTD: Victoria's Secret

Hello ladies~ Today I want to share some FOTD with my palette from Victoria's Secret. I bought this palette last year when VS had a very big discount. I don't really remember the price but I think it is around IDR 250.000 for this big and complete palette. Such a great deal, right?



Now I will talk about the Palette first. I really love the design especially the "ribbon" button that used to open the palette. The main color is black and it makes the palette looks expensive. This palette comes with 2 level~ the first level contains eyeshadows and lipsticks. I will not swatch every colour because it is too many for me *sorry*. I only use few colour from this palette so far and now I will swatch the color that I used for this FOTD. The bottom level contains face powder, blush on, brushes, eyeliner, and mascara. I used the darkest color to contour my face.



Like usual, I love to play safe with warm colour like brown and beige for my eyeshadows. Red coral for my blush and combination between red and pink color for my lips. These are the colour that I used~






The color pay-off is quite pigmented for me and the powder's texture isn't powdery. Actually this is the first time I try cosmetics from this brand and so far I'm quite satisfied with the quality. Still haven't try the mascara and eyeliner but I hope it will have a nice quality too like the others.

FOTD~

Summer in Seoul 2014: Part 2

Hello~ welcome to the part 2 of my Summer trip in Seoul. Actually I want to make 1 post for my entire trip but I think it will become a long long long post that will make you all tired. Even the part 1 is already so long even I only posted until day 4 hahahaha. Now let's continue the story~

It's Saturday~ we planned to go to Petite France and Nami Island. Since Nami is quite far away, we need to travel about 20 station to reach the nearest subway station to Nami, and then took another shuttle bus and transfer to ferry boat to Nami. wew.. sounds so far far away? well, it's indeed far, especially if you need to stand and travel over 40 stations *sigh*

some selca while waiting for the bus~ the view behind me is really beautiful eventhough the current weather is cloudy




Hello Petite France~ this place is famous because Running man once shoot here and also the latest k-drama "You who came from the star" also shoot here. 

Snack time~ 

The weather is really hot at Petite France so we decide to go to Nami Island. It's start raining when we reach the Naminara Republic. *sigh* luckily the rain stop quickly.


With the famous winter sonata couple!

Before back to Seoul, we had our dinner at local restaurant. Eat..Eat..Eat..!

To end the day, we went to Dongdaemun and look who I met there! Oppaaaaa~~ lololol.

Went to Lotte Fittin and explore the YG hologram exhibition. Also took a picture with my favourite idol ever! I want to watch the concert also but it's too expensive huhuhu. Ah also got a huge GD n TOP poster for free here~ teheee! Move on to the street, Dongdaemun maybe famous for their fashion store, but trust me the price is the most expensive from another street. We ended only eat the street snacks and not buy anything.


The famous unique ice cream~ can't try it at Myeongdong because it's way too crowded so try it at Dongdaemun. It taste good! I love the ice cream texture and also the cone.

Veggie Hotteok. It's very similar with martabak but taste better!

Day 6~ we spent sunday at Apgujeong. Nothing much to see here because it's very quite and only few people hang around this area. Also walk around the Cheondamdong area. It sure a very luxury area. The stores here are all high end brand and the store itself is very big for each brand.

Having snack at caffe bene~ the oreo patbingsu is really daebakk.. but not really like the green tea ice cream and the waffle. I think the taste of the green tea is way too strong.

After chillin, we continue to COEX Mall and had dinner there. My friend insist to have a full set dinner with a lot of banchan so we ordered this Banhaneun Bapsang. I think the banchan is still incomplete but it's okay since the taste is delicious.

After that we went crazy again at Gangnam Shopping Underground lol. End of the shopping time, we back to hostel to rest, but one of my friend said that her Korean friend will visit us tonight. So we ended had another dinner in the middle of the night. lol

This food is on the top on my wishlist ~ Pajeon (with various additional things lol). Me love it~

Last day! Start the day with a heavy brunch because it's our last day in Seoul. So we want to try everything hahahaha. These are what we had for our brunch.

Kimchi Jiggae, Kalguksu, and Bibimbap.

video

and to make you more hungry~ *evil grin*


With full stomach we went to Ehwa University. This University is really amazing. It is big and very beautiful. My only question is, what happened if the student come late? well, in Surabaya (or to be specific in my university) we can simply run as fast as we can to reach the class. But, Here.... it's way too big hahahaha..
Next destination is the Famous Hello Kitty Cafe~ we back to Hongdae again but this time is day time. There are less live performance and mostly people here to shop.

Tadaaa~ Hello Kitty Cafe.

Inside the cafe~

Most people ordered hot coffee, but we ordered smoothies (and waffle, just because it has a hello kitty shape) because the weather outside is really hot. Turns out it is a wrong choice, as the air con inside the cafe is really cold. lol. Can't finished my mango smoothie because of that huhuhu.

And our last stop is~ Sindang Tteokpokki Town. If you want to eat Tteokpokki you must visit here (yes, you can get tteokpokki all over the street but this one is different because it inside the restaurant and the portion is bigger).


video

I present to you~ Tteokpokki! fresh from the stove~ lol.

Went to our hostel to rest because we had a morning flight the next morning :D

Fiuuh~ finally I managed to write a full story of my vacation. I hope you still read it until the last words. I'm really happy because one of my dream finally come true. South Korea is a very beautiful country and I hope I can go back there again~ *please somebody take me to Seoul agaaaiiinn*

PS: Another posts about Seoul coming soon~

Review: TDF Eye Radiance [Sponsored]

Back on May, I was received an eye serum from Miracle Aesthetic Clinic. I don't really like apply eye cream because I hate something sticky on my eyes when I sleep. That's why until now I don't have any favourite eye cream hahaha. So, this one is sponsored one because I got it for free. But please note, my opinion is always honest :)
Packaging: The bottle is sturdy and comes with a small pump. The main color is white and brown. The packaging really reminds me of some medicine that you get from doctor hahahaha. But I really like the color combination between brown and white. It makes the bottle looks expensive (well, it is indeed expensive. The price for this eye cream is around IDR 680.000,00).

I also love the pump type packaging. It makes the product more hygience than jar packaging. The pump also works well as I can control the amount of the cream that I want to use.

Ingredients: Click the image for bigger size :)

Texture: The serum's color is clear brown/yellow, somehow reminds me of honey (it also smells like honey too). Well maybe I have problems with my nose because I can't see any honey ingredients on the eye serum but I swear it smells like honey hahahaha. The serum isn't sticky and that's the main reason why I love this eyeserum


So, this eye serum claims that it can reduce puffiness, dark circle, fine lines and moisturizing dry skin. On early June, After 1 month using this serum (and also after the eye peeling treatment) I can see my puffy eyes and dark circle reduced. The fine lines, it still there so I think I need to wait more longer to see the effect. As for the moisturizing effect, I found this serum really help to soften my under eyes area. I also love to use this eye serum before apply my eye makeup.
I think this serum will works the best with the treatment. After 2 months (without the treatment), I still can't see any difference with my eyes. The main problem of course not in the eye serum, because mostly the problem is on my sleeping habits lol. Especially when I was away for my holiday, I was lack of sleep the whole time. 

Anyway, I personally think that using eye cream/serum since young is one of an investment especially if you always wear makeup. Once I saw a korean variety show, and saw a celebrity that already 35 years old but she still looks like 25 y/o, she then share one of her secret that she already use eye cream since she was 20. Sooo.. invest on your skincare especially eye cream, it maybe expensive but it sure worth the money if you keep using it for a long time.

I got my eye cream from Miracle Aesthectic Clinic, head to their website for more information about this product. Recently Miracle also has new series called Miracle Series: Miracle Foaming Cleanser (IDR 200.000), Miracle Skin Solution (IDR 200.000), Miracle CC Cream (IDR 400.000), and Miracle Lashregro (IDR 600.000).



Good News~ get 15% OFF on the purchases of Miracle Series Until 31 August 2014!
