Review: Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

This mask has become my favourite since year ago. But I never buy the real size one until last March. Usually I will ask for free sample from Kiehl's counter. If I buy full size product at counter, the BA will give me around 5 sample sachets, and almost all the times I will request for mask sample. The sample sachet from Kiehl's is quite big and they're very generous with the amount. Usually I can use the mask sample for 2 times, just remember to secure it tightly after open because it tends to dry faster.

Back on March, I decided to bought the real size in HK, the price is slightly cheaper compared with Indonesia's counter, but the main reason is because I got excess money at that time and don't know what to buy hahaha, so ended bought this mask. 

Kiehls rare earth mask

Packaging: Stored in a huge plastic jar, this mask doesn't comes with a spatula. Which mean I need to dip my finger everytime I want to use it. It contains A LOT OF Product, which is really surprised me. I can't imagine how long until I can finish all the mask hahaha. PS: Not travel friendly because it really heavy and consume a lot of space hehehe..

Amount / Price: 142 g/ around IDR 400 K 

Kiehls rare earth mask

Texture: This is a clay mask, so the texture is quite thick and creamy. A little goes a long way, but I prefer to use my mask thick because I love the cooling effect from this mask. Leave it to dry for about 16-20 minutes and then wash your face with warm water. Never left clay mask for too long because it can makes you skin super dry. Even when I only use it for around 15 minutes, I've already feel my skin become dry and need to apply moisturizer after that.

Benefit: Tighten pore, makes my oily skin somewhat dry and not greasy, help make small acnes dry faster, Makes my face feel more fresh and clean everytime I finish using this mask.

Worth the money? Yes, though at first I think the price is quite expensive, with the amount of product that I got, I think this is a great value. It also works good for my acne-prone/oily skin.

Empties #2

Finally I make a new post on this category. So happy because I can finish more items. As I've mentioned before, I'm very determine to make many empties post. So, for the second batch of the empties, here are the products that I managed to finish.

finished product 2

Skin79 Orange Super Plus [Repurchase: YES]
This is one of my favourite BB Cream ever. In fact I've already finished 2 bottles of this BB Cream. I also mentioned it as my HG Product. Though the price is quite expensive, it has all the good benefits! Read more about it: HERE and HERE

Etude House Oh My Eyeline [Repurchase: YES]
Also one of my HG Products, you maybe noticed that I always write about this product whenever I can hehehe. Read more about it: HERE

Makarizo Anti Frizz Spray [Repurchase: No]
My hair vitamin spray before I change to Lucido-L. I don't really experience the anti frizz effect as I think my hair still look the same no matter how much I sprayed it. It has quite strong scent, which I don't really like. The good thing is, it doesn't makes my hair greasy and the spray works really well.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil [Repurchase: YES]
My live saver! This is one of the forever repurchase items. I've already bought a new one even before I finished the last bottle. Read more about it on my Green Squad Haul~

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser [Repurchase: YES]
I've started to use this cleanser again, because few months ago my acnes become worse. Whenever my skin condition become really bad, I will change my face cleanser to a gentle type one. This one is my favourite foaming cleanser. I don't need to put much effort to create the bubble, because it comes with a special pump and all I need to do is pump it out the bottle. Read more about this product: HERE

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment [Repurchase: No]
The most hyped clay/mud mask outside there. I decided to bought the travel size because the full size is too expensive for me. It works good but I don't think I will spent so much money just for a clay mask. One of my friend owned the full size and she complained about how fast it dries even she already sealed the packaging. I don't know if it happen to anyone or maybe she just got unlucky with her packaging, but I think it isn't really worth the money. If you want to try this famous mask, I suggest you bought the sample size / travel size one. The travel size can be used up to 1 month (if you use it once a week). Read my review about this mask, HERE

Bioderma Sebium H20 [Repurchase: No]
Recently I've changed my cleansing water from Bioderma Sensibio H20 to Sebium H20. While Sensibio is for all skin type including the sensitive one, Sebium H20 is for oily skin. Sensibio H20 is my HG cleansing water and I'm already lost count on how many bottles that I have, while for Sebium, this is the first empty bottle. Most people said that Sebium is more sticky than Sensibio and I must admit it is true. I don't know why, but after I clean my face with Sebium, I can feel some sticky residue on my face, it also has a strong scent *which I can't really decribe what scent it is*, fortunately it still works as good as Sensibio H20 to remove the make up.

Kiehl's Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment [Repurchase: YES]
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introducing you to my current HG Skincare. This product is also one of my forever repurchase items. It works really really really (can you see I used the word "Really" until 3 times?) good to clear blemishes and dark spot. I still haven't make any proper review about this product, but I've been used it for 2 years, and this is probably my 6th or 7th tube. If you have dark acne scar I suggest you try this product. I was hesitate to buy this product at first because the price is super expensive for a 30 ml product. But after I finished my first tube, I can't stop myself to buy another tube. 

This time I managed to finish more products than the last one. Talk to you again in the next empties post ^^

My "In a Hurry" Products!

Admit it or not, doing make up in the morning is quite stressful. Especially when you wake up late and still have many things to do. Because of that, I want to share some products that may work best when you're in a hurry. These are my favourite products to used when I was late~

Base Make Up: Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion
This BB cushion has everything. It is moisturise well, contains high SPF and provides nice coverage. So I can skip moisturizer and sunscreen to minimize the time.

Eyeliner: Etude House Easy and Quick Pen Liner
The quickest way to draw bold eyeline is by using this pen. It has a thick tip, so I only need to draw once to get a bold black line on my eyes.

Eyebrow: NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder
Drawing eyebrow can be really stressful and took a long time. That's why when I'm in a hurry I will forget the eyebrow pencil and go with this powder. All I need to do is fill the gap on my eyebrow with this powder and I'm ready to go. It is easy and less messy than draw using pencil.

Blush: MAC Coygirl
Actually every blush is the same, whether I'm in hurry or not. But this one is my favourite to use when I can't think about mix and match. It has a nice pink-purple color combination that give a healthy and natural rosy cheek. Too bad this shade already discontinued :(

Lips: Maybelline Baby Lips Color
My secret item for a nice pink color. It is a color lip balm. Only need 1 swipe and I'm good to go. The color is very natural and moisturise well~ perfect when you're in hurry and don't need to blot the color or double check whether the color left stain on your teeth or not.

That's all my "Hurry" products~ do you have the same products that you always use when you're in hurry? share with me~

Cleansing Tools Yay or Nay? + Review POBLING Pore Sonic Cleanser

Hello~ topik kali ini just random thought  aja, barusan aku sempat baca artikel tentang "Perlukah Cuci Muka dengan Cleansing Tools?" di Female Daily. Nah, karena beberapa waktu belakangan aku juga mulai melakukan ritual cuci muka + bantuan tools, maka aku mau share pengalamanku menggunakan cleansing tools.

Ceitanya berawal dari beberapa bulan yang lalu, salah satu sahabatku menceritakan tentang Clarisonicnya. FYI, temenku ini sudah ngidam beli clarisonic sejak lamaaa.. hampir 1 tahunan kayaknya, tapi dia maju mundur terus waktu mau beli karena harganya yang tidak murah. Akhirnya beberapa waktu yang lalu dia mutusin beli Clarisonic (aku kurang paham yang tipe mana sih). Habis gitu, dia share ke aku tentang si clarisonic ini. Based on her review: Kalau pake clarisonic muka jadi halusss, habis cuci muka pingin pegang muka terus soalnya kenyal dan clingg, pas mau jerawatan ( you know the moment when you can feel there's a bump on ur face) kalau rajin cuci muka pakai clarisonic jerawatnya ga jadi muncul dan langsung hilang.

Nah, berbekal review temanku yang antusias merekomendasikan si Clarisonic, mulailah aku tertarik nyobain cleansing tools. Apa bener sih sebagus itu hasilnya kalau pake cleansing tools? Kebetulan beberapa waktu yang lalu aku sempat jalan-jalan ke HK, dan di salah satu toko kosmetik aku ditawarin cleansing tools merk DR.BAUER POBLING. Karena harganya yang "agak" ramah di kantong (kalau dibandingin sama si clarisonic) akhirnya aku memutuskan untuk membelinya. Waktu balik ke Sby, sempat googling tentang merk ini (yang ternyata merk korea) dan beberapa review yang bilang kalau kualitasnya oke. Semakin memantapkan hati untuk nyoba.

Waktu pertama kali nyoba, kesan pertama yang aku dapat dari tools ini adalah bulunya yang super halus dan rapat banget (dense). Bentuknya mirip sikat gigi, yang unik dari POBLING ini adalah bentuk sikatnya yang seperti masker mata. Menurut info BAnya sih agar mudah digunakan untuk daerah bawah mata (which is TRUE! tapi agak susah digunakan untuk daerah hidung karena bentuknya yang aneh hahaha plus minus la menurutku). Untuk penggunaan harus menggunakan batre kecil, tempat batrenya terlindungi dengan penutup khusus sehingga aman walaupu kena air (tetapi sebisa mungkin aku tidak membasahi bagian bawahnya saat cuci muka)

Untuk sabun, aku kebetulan menggunakan yang tipe foamy (TBS Tea tree foaming cleanser) bisa juga pakai yang tipe cream gitu, tapi kalau yang tipe gel kayaknya kurang seberapa oke. Aku pernah coba sekali pakai sabun Kiehls Blue Herbal Cleansing gel, karena dasarnya sabun itu kurang berbusa jadi malah habis banyak dan kurang maksimal. Saranku cari sabun yang ga pedih kalau kena mata, karena akan jatuh-jatuh waktu bersihiin daerah dahi. Untuk pemakaian, cukup tekan tombol on dan nanti sikatnya akan bergetar otomatis secara ringan. Jangan dibayangkan kayak orang kesetrum gitu ya hehehe.. Walaupun bergetar otomatis, tetap perlu digerak-gerakkan ke seluruh bagian wajah.

Hasil berbeda yang cukup signifikan aku rasakan waktu aku pakai POBLING dan TBS Tea tree foaming cleanser. Biasanya, setelah mencuci muka, ya terasa gitu-gitu aja sih hahaha setelah nyobain pakai pobling, entah kenapa memang terasa lebih bersih dan muka terasa kencang, plus karena sabunku ada tea treenya sempat terasa tingling sensation gitu setelah cuci muka, kayak efek mint plus wangi tea treenya tercium lebih lama. Padahal selama berbotol-botol pakai sabun yang sama ga pernah kerasa kayak gitu. Aku sempat mikir sih apa karena lebih meresap ya? hahahaha~ Anyway, sekarang aku ganti sabun ke Himalaya Herbal Purifying Neem Foaming Facial Wash, tipenya sama kayak TBS dan aku juga merasakan hal sama, muka jadi terasa kencang (bukan tertarik ya) dan lebih cling plus wangi sabunnya tercium lebih lama.

1 hal lagi yang paling aku suka adalah it helps eliminate new acne! yes, kayak yang temanku bilang, kalau ada benjolan (tanda mau ada jerawat baru) cepet-cepet aku cuci muka pakai tools ini, biasanya setelah 2-3 hari jerawatnya batal muncul dan muka kembali rataaa muluss~ yay!

Kapan digunakan? Kalau aku pribadi sih biasanya aku cuci muka dengan cleansing toolsnya setelah aku menggunakan make up. Kalau sehari-hari karena aku jarang pakai kosmetik aku hanya cuci muka biasa pakai tangan. Biasanya kalau weekend aku suka pakai cleansing tools ini buat cuci muka. Untuk special case, Kadang aku pakai cleansing tools ini juga kalau misal mau ada jerawat di wajah, atau sebelum aku pakai masker wajah.

Worth it kah? Yes, punya cleansing tools lumayan oke kok untuk investasi. Kalau memang belum bisa beli yang mahal ala Clarisonic, mending cobain brand lain yang agak terjangkau (tapi jangan yang abal-abal ya, karena banyak banget yang jual cleansing tools2 ga jelas dengan harga murmer tapi entah gimana efeknya).

Sekilas obrolan cleansing tools kali ini~ apa kalian ada yang pakai cleansing tools juga? share with me!
