Pixy UV Whitening Gentle Cleansing Express [review]

Yeahh.. another great local product!! ^-^
I can say.. that this is my new love! :3
So what's this? This is a cleansing water from Pixy.. 
Pixy UV Whitening Gentle Cleansing Express..
One of my March Haul :)
I usually use this to remove my makeup and any dirt on my face, it works really well!
it contains 150ml, with a slim transparent package, and it's easy to grip :]

It claims: two way bright, bekerja ganda untuk kulit tampak lebih cerah.
  • Natural whitening powder membuat kulit tampak lebih cerah
  • Mengantdung soya bean lecithin & derivat vitamin C

Membersihkan kulit, mengangkat kotoran, makeup dan minyak berlebih di wajah tanpa membuat kulit kering sehingga kulit bersih, lembut dan terasa lembab.

As usual.. let's test it! ^^
I already applied bb cream, concealer, mascara, blush on, eyeshadow on my hand

ups, i mean 2 swipes -_-" *typo
O_O wow! works really well!

As you can see.. this product can remove any waterproof makeup! Works really well, like the name, cleansing express. When I bought this product, I didn't have any big expectation about this product, i just want to buy any alcohol free cleansing water.
After I tested it on my hand, I really surprised with the result and I started to use this to remove my makeup. The best part is, this product really cheap!! XD I bought this for IDR 13,000.. Really affordable! :3
I just have no idea why PIXY named this product with "UV". 
FYI, kalau ada yang tanya apakah muka ku tambah cerah atau ngga.. sorry aku ngga memperhatikan XD hehehe... 

What I love <3
+ works really well!
+ cheap!
+ contains 150ml (that's quite huge)
+ alcohol free
+ made in Indonesia (say Yay for Indonesian products!)
+ contains natural whitening ingredients
+ contains soya bean lecithin & vitamin C
+ convenient & easy to carry

What I hate </3
- I don't like the scent.. like an artificial scent.. 
I think maybe because this product contains ethanol.. (CMIIW)
But the scent is tolerable, I didn't really mind about the scent.

Rating: 4.5/5

Repurchase? Oh yeah!! ;))

Have you tried this product? ^.^

NYX Stick Blush [review]

Hola, everyone ^-^ today i want to share my review about this NYX Stick Blush
Mine is in Pink Poppy.. one of my March Haul :D
Okay, what is this?
Description from NYX's website:
Add a touch of color with our creamy and extremely pigmented Stick Blush! Available in eight rich shades! Apply and receive the perfect glow every day!
INGREDIENTS: White Mineral Oil, 2-Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polybutene, Squalane, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Vitamin E, Beeswax, Ozokerite, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax, Paraffin Wax/ Microcrystalline Wax, Phenoxyethanol/ Methylparaben/ N-Butylparaben/ Ethylparaben/ Propylparaben/ Isobutylparaben, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate. MAY CONTAIN: D&C Red No.6 Sodium Salt (CI 15850), D&C Red No.28 Al.

This stick blush got 5 stars rating in their website
Available in 8 colors :D

6.2g / 0.013 oz.. Cruelty Free / Hypoallergenic :)

swatch on my hand.. it's peachy color ^^
I found that when I applied it on my cheeks then blend it with my F80 sigma flat top brush , it will looks more natural than blend it use my finger.
swatch on piece of tissue
My opinion about this stick blush: the texture isn't creamy, yet quite thick. I haven't try any NYX cream blush yet so i can't compare this with NYX cream blush. I'm started to fall in love with this blush because it looks so natural on my cheeks :)
But i didn't recommend to blend this blush with finger, because it will look messy.. I suggest you to blend this stick blush with any buffer brush/flat top brush/angled contour brush/kabuki brush to achieve natural peachy cheeks.

What I love <3
+ Natural color
+ pigmented
+ hypoallergenic
+ cruelty free
+ long lasting
+ easy to carry
+ cute package
+ hygienic & convenient

What I hate </3
- quite thick texture
- need brush to achieve a natural look

Rating: 4/5

Repurchase? I think no.. because I will need more than half year to finish this one XD
But this is worth-it to purchase :)

Thanks for reading :D

quite powdery..
play with the colors :P
camwhoring :P haha
try to achieve gloomy expression Xp *failed*

My opinion about this duo eyeshadow..
The colors aren't pigmented enough :( especially the light green color..
I need a eyebase to makes the colors pop out! This time I used my favorite eyebase, Etude House Proof 10 eye primer :)
Anyway, the colors are quite good.. :)

What I love <3
+ nice colors
+ there are 7 various of this Eye Envy Collection.. details
+ subtle shimmer
+ quite affordable (around $5)

What I hate </3
- not pigmented enough

Oriflame Very Me Smoothie Foundation [review]

Hellooooo girls ^^ today i want to share my thoughts about this foundation.. :)
It's Very Me Smoothie Foundation from Oriflame..
Mine is in shade 02 ivory
I got this foundation for free ^^ it's giveaway from Oriflame and Sister Magazine in their twitter. I got 1 foundation, 1 duo eyeshadow, and 1 lipstick.. I already reviewed the Lipstick :) you can read it HERE

after blend it..
Try it on my face :3
oh my puffy eyes T_T
As you can see.. the coverage is very light.. when i applied it on my face, I didn't feel heavy at all! >_< Really different with other foundations.
I think this is what I really need! Usually I only use compact powder for college.. Never use BB cream because i think that's too much (for me).. but when I use this, i feel like doesn't apply any foundation on my face.. O_o
I think I can use this for college ^-^because i don't like medium-heavy coverage.. light coverage is the best for me! :D :D
The texture is very smooth & watery.. doesn't thick at all.. And the best part is the scent.. berry scent.. love it! XD

What I love <3
+ very light (doesn't like other foundations)
+ smoothhh texture (oh yeah, the name of this foundation is smoothie foundation XD)

What I hate </3

Rating: 4,2/5

Re-purchase? I'll consider it ;))

Note: If you has many acne scars and blemishes, i don't recommend this foundation for you :) because of the light coverage..  And I think this foundation is suit for normal and dry skin :)

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo [review]

Hello, this is my first experience with Herbal Essences Shampoo ^-^
I was depressed long time ago because I couldn't find shampoo that suits me best. My last shampoos always made my hair become dull, grayish my hair, and dried :(
So, i decided to try this one. This is my current shampoo.
The name is quite funny: Hello hydration XD it claims "moisturizing shampoo for dry, damaged hair".
Type of my hair is dry and damaged, because of Indonesian thick pollution and sunlight.
it contains 160ml and has clear packaging, so you can see inside the bottle :)
with a fusion of orchid & coconut milk

with a unique cap ^^ you just need to open the cap & squeeze the bottle to get the shampoo
look at the bubble pattern all over the packaging XD so cute, isn't it?
I have used this shampoo for one month and i'm quite love this shampo :)) really hydrate and soften my hair ^^ the smell is quite nice too.

What I love <3
+ hydrate my hair
+ soften my hair
+ unique cap
+ herbal ingredients

What I hate </3
- nothing atm :)

Rating: 4/5

Re-purchase? I think Yes ^^

Have you tried this shampoo? :D

Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil Fresh [review]

This time, I got the miniature size of this Real Art Cleansing oil ^-^
This is from Etude House.. and I got in Fresh (there are fresh, mild, and moisture)
This is the miniature size
Had an Experiment on my hand =D

one swap
two swap
Verdict = this cleansing oil is a nice product, could cleanse makeup well, and didn't leave any residue. I recommend this product to people with normal & dry skin. Why? Because it's*a cleansing oil ^-^ works well to remove all makeup and moisturize your skin. ONLY use this product to remove your eye and lip make up. DON'T use this to all over your face, because it will makes your face will be very greasy.

What I love <3
+ Removes my make up well
+ Mild formula
+ Didn't irritates my eyes
+ Can remove waterproof makeup easily

What I hate </3
- I can't be used for face because it will makes your face be greasy

Rating: 4/5

Re-purchase? Yes. I think I need to buy the fullsize ^^

NOTE (UPDATE 16/03/2012): From Dilla -> i guess this also work to cleansing foundation for people who have an oily skin and all you need is rinse it with water & double cleansed with a facial foam afterwards.. because thats what I do actually hehe :)

Need Info: Training Pad / Pee Pee Pad for Dogs in Indonesia

I know this is unrelated post -.- But I think I really need this item for my doggies!! >_<
Saat ini aku punya 5 anjing di rumahku.. biasanya aku cuma pakai kertas koran kalau mereka di rumah, tp bisa ditebak kalau sangat merepotkan.. seisi rumah jadi bau =.= dan membersihkan lantai yg kotor juga cukup merepotkan..

Akhirnya mamaku meletakkan mereka di halaman rumah tapi dengan crate seperti ini:
Tapi di halamanku tidak ada rumput2nya (dipaving semua) jadi mereka di letakkan di paving yg sudah jelek dan di pojok`n, tetap saja sih mereka pee and poo di kertas koran tetapi at least tidak bikin bau rumah dan biasanya yang membersihkan adalah pembantu rumah.

Setelah aku baca-baca dan lihat-lihat banyak refrensi, aku baru tahu ada yg namanya Training Pads, or Pee Pee Pads, or Potty Pads for dogs!! >,<
Itulah solusinya jika ingin memelihara anjing di dalam rumah.. jadi pee n poo nya tidak akan berceceran di lantai rumah.. 

ini training potty pads yang lebih mahal, karena tinggal mengganti pads nya saja, dan pee nya ngga akan berceceran di luar training potty pads itu.

Potty Pads / Training Pads / Pee Pee Pads ini foldable, disposable, dan kalau doggies abis pee di atas sini, pee nya ngga akan merembes ke lantai... Kurasa cara kerjanya seperti diapers nya baby *,*

Ada juga yang namanya Dog Potty Training (backyard indoor potty pads) atau semacam grass potty pads untuk di dalam rumah.

Video iklan nya.. Made in USA..

Teman2 sesama bloggers, apakah ada yang tau di mana jual alat-alat yang kusebutkan di atas? :( I need it for my doggies.. merasa kasian kalo mereka harus di luar rumah >.< jd merasa ngga disayang.. huks..

Apakah di Jakarta atau di Surabaya ada yang jual?
Kalo ada yg tau sesuatu, mohon info nya yah >,<
Thank youuuuu
