Hello everyone ^^ I have many entries to post but i'm lack of time >.<
Please wait my report about Korean Trip patiently =) I'll give complete reports of mine ^^

So today i would like to share to you about What's in my Travel Wallet & What I bring for Vacation. Remember that these items could be replaceable depends on where country do you will visit and depends on the season :)

FYI, Last week I have short-fun-vacation in South Korea ^^I visited Seoul, Busan and Jeju. In June, the season of South Korea is SUMMER.

Summer in Korea is hot and rainy. The season usually begins in June, when the temperature rises above 20 degrees C,  Summer in Korea is hot. In most of the country, the mean temperature of hottest month is above 25 degrees C. except in the northern interior. The mean temperature of the hottest month for Seoul is 25.3 degrees C.

Do not depend on clock in your cellphone.

Travel Wallet
This wallet really helps me to bring important documents and money ^^ you can bring 5-10 different currency and divide them into envelopes.

1) a Note to record expenditure records
2) Flight Booking print-out or boarding pass
3) Money
4) a section to keep money and coins
5) Passport
6) ID cards
7) a Pen

1) a Note
2) Flight Booking Print-out
3) Money in envelope. RMY stands for Ringgit Malaysia.

I divided RMY and IDR in two envelopes

Money :P won~

rest of my money. This envelope also contains won. It's read as WON, not NOM, btw.. LOL ^^

My Makeup Pouch

bobby pins, small kabuki brush, hair ties, comb, mirror

I really tried to do not bring any unimportant makeup in my pouch. :)

1) Maybelline Lip Balm (mandarin)
2) Etude House Easy Brow Pencil
6) Revlon PhotoReady Concealer
8) Tony Moly Cherry Mini Tint

Hair & Body Care etc Pouch

1) Vaseline Intensive Care Healthy Sunblock SPF 30

Tips:
1. Don't forget to bring disposable panties, because it's so convenience =)
2. Don't forget to bring an umbrella. If you forget to bring any umbrella, you can buy it in mini market (around 3,500 won each) or in local market (2,000-3,500 won each).
3. TRY to memorize hangul or Korean writing system ^^ Because you will find many hangul in Korea and if you could memorize hangul, it's easier for you to explore Korea :)
4. Don't be hesitate to ask to natives if you find difficulties to search a place or location. They are so friendly and do not mind to help foreigners :) Some Korean could speak English  too..


So far, these items are what I brought for Summer Vacation in South Korea ^^
Please leave a comment if you want to recommend any must-have-items to bring for vacation! :)

It's Snail Cure Mask Sheet from Baviphat!

Honestly this is the first time I used product with snail cure as main ingredients..
*____*
I'm quite excited to try this.. look at the cute packaging..
Snail on aloe vera! :)

• Rich substances that helps to repair skin.

• Reduce aging. Help with moisture retention and skin treatment.

• Moisturize the skin for long periods.

My verdict: I feel my skin is quite moisturized after used this mask sheet.. I quite love the aloe vera scent, and my skin feel quite refreshed.. There is one thing that i don't like about this mask is.. ITCHY! I feel itchy after used this mask sheet and I can't help to cleanse my face.. 
I don't know if others also feel itchy, or just me :| Maybe my skin is too sensitive..

What I love <3
+ moisturize my skin
+ fresh aloe vera scent
+ contains snail cure which is good for anti-aging

Helloooooooooo guys :D

Sorry for the delay.. finally I'll write the report about Surabaya Indonesian Beauty Blogger 1st Gathering :P
FYI, IBB is stands for Indonesian Beauty Blogger.. We love to share many things to each other about beauty-related things ^^ I'm proud to be one of IBB members..
If you interesting, you can check it out the fanpage and the group :)

This gathering was held on May 26th, in a Pique Nique, Grand City
Pique Nique has a unique concept restaurant & cafe :) What I love most about this resto is.. they provide many electricity sockets!! XD For BlackBerry users (like me), the ease of finding electricity socket is such a little happiness.. ROFL!
This Resto is suitable for people who like to hang out, gathering with friends and like to spend time with in cafe :)

Note: Because of my English is not good enough, so i will write this post mostly in Bahasia Indonesia, sorry for my international readers >.<

This was my meal.. I forgot the name.. Maybe "Chicken Yakitori" :P
it's delicious, with cute concept dishes ^^ i feel like in a picnic time with my friends!

Jadi, waktu ci Elisa mengusulkan untuk mengadakan gathering.. aku langsung excited pengen banget ketemu sama teman-teman sesama beauty blogger yang selama ini cuma bisa ketemu di dunia maya :D 
Tapi jujur aku agak khawatir juga bakal awkward pas gathering karena aku termasuk masih newbie dan baru blogging selama 4 bulan an..
Tapi ternyata kekhawatiranku tidak terbukti :P

Hari itu, sebenarnya kami janjian bertemu jam 2, tapi berhubung macetnya jalanan dan beberapa alasan lain, akhirnya ada beberapa yang telat datangnya (include me and Hana >.<). Sekitar jam 3 kurang semua personil lengkap terkumpul ^^

We talked many things from beauty-related things to out of beauty-related things. It was so fun! \(^v^)/ It was a really pleasant moment with other beauty bloggers :D
Now we're officially could be called as friends, aren't we? hehehehehe..

Here we are :D
From left to right: Me - Pricillia, Yennyca, Shasha, Elisa, Caroline, Shelley, Hana


Pricillia: Pricill ini ternyata masih SMA loh.. kukira dia udah kuliah.. soalnya tampak dewasa banget kalo liat foto2nya di blognya >.< hehehe.. orangnya kalem dan lucu cara bicaranya xP yang paling lucu kalo kuingat2 adalah kami berebut posisi tidak mau disebut yang paling "tipis" atau kurus.. T^T ROFL.. sedih banget aku susah banget mencapai berat badan ideal meski udah makan sebanyak apapun >___<;;

Yennyca: Selama ini cuma kenal di blog nya yang margylove ^^ ci yenyen orangnya cantik dan ramah, rambutnya juga bagus :D selain sebagai beauty blogger, ci yenny juga seorang Make Up Artist loh :)

Shasha: Bisa dibilang ci shasha ini salah satu blogger yang paling sering kubaca blognya :D informatif dan rajin banget ngeblog nya hehehe.. dan ci shasha juga salah satu yang sering komen di blog ku ^^ orangnya ramah dan cantik :) sayang kita ngga banyak ngobrol karena tempat duduknya jauh :p hehe

Elisa: Ini diaaa.. mommy gaul yang lucu banget kalo ngomong.. XD very entertaining dan very friendly.. rasanya gathering tanpa mami elisa ini ngga akan lengkap dehh.. sayang mami elisa harus cepet-cepet balik ke flores :( Kapan-kapan kalo ke surabaya harus kumpul-kumpul lagi ya, mi :P hihi

Caroline: Olin ini adalah yang termuda diantara semuanya~ member IBB yang dari surabaya yang pertama kali kuajak chat ya olin ini ^^ orangnya mungil, friendly dan cute~ hehe

Shelley: Satu-satunya beauty vlogger diantara semuanya.. atau yang biasa di sebut beauty guru ^^ personally I really love how she talks in her videos. What a fluent English speech :D bagiku udah hebat banget bisa ngobrol lancar di depan kamera tanpa tampak grogi dan salah ngomong.. ci shelley ini orangnya tinggi bangettt dan seorang Make Up Artist juga loh.. Ternyata ci shelley ini juga temennya temenku :P jadi ngerasa lebih deket deh karena ada hubungan tidak langsung di luar IBB.. hahaha

Hana: Hana ini adalah adik kelasku di kampus jadi udah kenal dari dulu sebelum gabung di IBB :D orangnya cerdas, pinter, lucu, rajin menabung dan tidak sombong *loh*.. LOL xP
Yang pasti Hana ini juga punya jiwa entrepreneur ^^ Dia sedang merintis brand baru dengan produk utamanya minuman susu kedelai / soya bean milk. Stand nya bernama  SO-YA di City of Tomorrow dan soon in Royal Plaza Surabaya :)
Kalo yang di CITO, stand nya ada di dekat Food court nya. You should try SO-YA, personally I love soya bean milk and like to drink soya bean milk from SO-YA ;p really healthy~

Setelah asik ngobrol-ngobrol dan selesai makan, kami pun beralih jalan-jalan ke Departmen Store yang ada di Grand City (I forgot the name >.<).
Kami kesini karena berdasarkan info dari ci Elisa, ada brand skin care dari Korea yang katanya bagus namanya The History of Whoo. Karena kami baru pertama kali denger namanya dan penasaran bagaiman bentuknya, kami pun meluncur ke Department Store tsb dan melihat-lihat apa itu The History of Whoo..

SA-nya lagi menjelaskan kepada kami

Aku sih juga baru pertama kali dengar brand ini.. dan sejujurnya aku tidak sanggup beli produknya.. Harganya itu loh.. 
Aku ngga tau sih berapa harganya kalo di Korea, tapi harga di counternya yang ini jelas ngga reasonable (for me), karena harga 1 set mencapai 1-2 juta .____.

Di samping counternya Whoo, juga ada counter Max Factor yang lagi ada promo mascara, sehingga setelah mempertimbangkan banyak hal ci Shasha (dan Hana?) pun membelinya :P hehe.. Dengan bantuan Olin sebagai modelnya untuk mencoba mascara yang sedang ada promo tersebut. BTW ci shelley juga beli beauty case berbentuk travelling luggage yang menurutku sangat unik dan classy XD

It's me :P very simple make up~

Setelah dari Department Store dan jalan-jalan bentar akhirnya kami pun memutuskan untuk pulang karena ada acara lagi setelahnya.. ^^

Sekian laporan dari saya :D Pengen banget kumpul-kumpul lagi di lain waktu dan kesempatan ^_________^
See you my lovely friends~~
*peluk satu-satu*

Etude House AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot Extreme [review]

Hello My Lovely Friends ^^ Today I would like to share a review about AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot (+Extreme) from Etude House.. This product is upgraded version from the old version, AC clinic Pink Powder Spot..
I have captured the photos few weeks ago but always lazy forgot to watermark them and post them :P LOL! Finally I'll review this product right now..

In this AC clinic Pink Powder Spot Extreme set.. This product consists of Red Spot Balm (5ml) + Pink Powder Spot Extreme (15ml) + Cotton Swab

The old version:

Consists of: Pink Powder Spot + Acne Foam Cleanser + Cotton Swab

The upgraded version:

AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot+ extreme : Formulated with Sulfur Powder (antibiotic), Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract, AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot soothes, heals, and brightens blemishes with a medicated formula.

[Directions] Non-Comedogenic & Dermatologist Tested 'Non-Comedogenic' means it will not produce nor aggravate acne. AC Clinic line is formulated without acne-inducing ingredients to promote clear skin.

Application sequence: Foam Cleanser --> Toner --> Gel Lotion --> Red Spot Balm --> Pink Powder Spot --> Calming Mist 

[Caution] for external use only. Avoid contactc with eyes,keep out of reach of children. discontinue use if sings of irritation and/for rash appear.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's examine these products one by one! :D

1. Red Spot Balm + whitening
the full size of Red Spot Balm (I heard this product already discontinued CMIIW)

[Features] Formulated with Madecassoside (skin Healing agent), Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extracts. AC Clinic Red Spot Balm heals, clarifies and soothes facial trouble spots. Specialized target treatment heals and brightens blemishes with improved texture and skin whitening formula. 
Non-Comedogenic & Dermatologist Tested
‘Non-Comedogenic’ means it will not produce nor aggravate acne.
AC Clinic line is formulated without acne inducing ingredients to promote clear skin.
 [How to use] Apply cream directly to acne, pimples and blemishes. Allow cream to absorb into skin. Avoid excessive facial rubbing.
[Application Sequence] Foam Cleanser -> Toner -> Gel Lotion -> Red Spot Balm Whitening -> Pink Powder Spot Extreme -> Pink daily spot, Calming Mist

My Verdict: I always apply this one to my new pimples before use the pink powder spot. It helps to heals my red pimples and brightens my blemishes. Usually I take the balm with my pinky finger and dab it on my pimples and let the cream absorb into my skin. This red spot balm works well for my new pimples :)

2. Pink Powder Spot + Extreme

HOW TO USE?
1. After facial cleansing (after your night skincare routine) allow powder to settle at the bottom. DON'T shake the bottle.
2. Perpendicularly dip cotton swab into bottle to draw powder.
3. Dab trouble spots and acne with swab tip to coat with powder. DON'T prick the pimples, just gently dab.


Can be kept for 12 months after opening.

let powder to settle at the bottom of the bottle 
use cotton swab to draw some powder at the bottom of the bottle
NOTE [How I use it]:
to heals pimples: Red Spot Balm -> Pink Powder Spot Extreme
to brightens acne scars: Pink Powder Spot Extreme

this is me when I used the pink powder spot Xp LOL.. tired face, dark circles 
and not wore any circle lens..

the result?


My Verdict: As you can see.. my pimple was dried effectively 2 days later after I used this product.. *__* This product works wonderfully for me.. and this product helps me to remove my Milia! At the photos, you can see my milia around my nose.. they're gone now..
This product helps me to "pull out" my milia and then I just need my clean finger to pop out them.. ^___^
By The Way, my milia are not gone completely, but I really love this product.. because it can help me to reduce my milia!!! :D :D :D *really happy*


What I love <3
+ Effective for my new pimples
+ Effective to brightens my acne scars
+ Helps me to reduce my milia
+ No break out
+ Can be used for more than 6 months (for me)

What I hate </3
- NOTHING
