KULIT PUTIH = CANTIK?


Hi guys! I can't help to write this post. I will write the most of sentences in Bahasa Indonesia, because I believe this problem has become one of main problems of many people in Indonesia.


Sebenarnya sudah bertahun-tahun saya mengamati fenomena yang telah marak di Indonesia ini. Kecemasan saya semakin diperkuat dengan adanya pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang sering sekali muncul di grup komunitas kecantikan di Facebook yang tengah saya kelola (dimana saya menjadi salah satu adminnya). Sudah bisa ditebak, pertanyaan-pertanyaan itu adalah:

"Bagaimana sih caranya putihin kulit secara permanen?"

"Injeksi / suntik putih di dokter mana ya yang aman?"

"Produk pemutih terbaik apa ya?"

"Produk whitening ini abal-abal ngga ya?"

"Ada yang pernah cobain produk pemutih yang ini?"

"Ada yang tau bagaimana cara memutihkan kulit yang aman dan cepat keliatan hasilnya?"

"Ada yang tau info gimana bleaching kulit?"

"Suplemen apa ya yang bisa bikin kulit cepet putih?"

dan masih banyak lagi...

Bisa dibilang, pertanyaan itu yang paling banyak diposting di grup. Dalam sebulan bisa puluhan kali terima pertanyaan yang serupa, lagi dan lagi. Pertanyaan besar yang sering sekali mengganjal di pikiran saya dan ingin tanyakan secara langsung kepada mereka-mereka adalah:

"KENAPA SIH SEGITU TEROBSESINYA PENGEN KULIT PUTIH?"
Emangnya kalau mau jadi cantik itu harus punya kulit putih dulu ya?

cantik tidak identik dengan putih, kulit putih tidak selalu berarti cantik

Sudah bukan rahasia umum kalau di Indonesia, produk pemutih kulit adalah produk perawatan kulit yang paling sering dicari dan digandrungi banyak orang. Semua orang ingin punya kulit putih, dari berbagai kalangan dan berbagai usia. Kalau tidak hati-hati, hal tersebut bisa jadi obsesi yang tidak sehat.

TRENDING TOPIC 1: LIPS ENHANCER for FULLER LIPS - What do you think?

I promptly write this post because this is an interesting trend. Really.
Have you heard about LIPS ENHANCER? Yes, a device that will help you to achieve fuller and plumper lips. I notice there are few online stores that sell this product and I found out this product is... unique, but relatively unnecessary for people who have no interest in fuller lips, in order to make their lips' appearance look better and seductive.

What is LIPS ENHANCER?
Basically it's a device that will helps you to achieve fuller and plumper lips, and the effect is only temporary. What you need to do is only gently SUCK IT ON YOUR LIPS for few seconds, and voila! You will get fuller lips in only couple of seconds. Of course the result is depending on how long and how hard you suck the lip plumper device.

Apa itu LIPS ENHANCER?
Pada dasarnya Lips Enhancer adalah alat yang berguna untuk mendapatkan bibir yang tampak lebih "penuh" dan tebal, tapi efeknya hanya sementara. Yang perlu dilakukan hanyalah dengan meletakkan alat tersebut di bibir dan menyedotnya secara perlahan selama beberapa detik dan voila! Kalian akan mendapatkan bibir yang nampak "penuh" hanya dalam hitungan puluhan detik. Tetapi tentu saja efeknya tergantung pada seberapa keras dan lama kalian menyedot alat tersebut.

Get healthy with HEAVENLY BLUSH Yogurt Drink to Go

Hi everyone! Today I'd share thoughts about my most favorite yogurt drink ^.^ I believe most of you have known about this yogurt brand before, because it's now sold publicly and widely in many markets in Indonesia :D I remember that once Heavenly Blush started their business as frozen yogurt outlet in 2008 (I ever eaten their frozen yogurt once, and I liked it). I don't remember when, but few years ago I couldn't find Heavenly Blush outlets in Surabaya anymore. BUT, in 2014 I met Heavenly Blush Yogurt again inside big fridge in mini market near my home! :O I was like "Hoahhh... Now Heavenly Blush produces their yogurt drink in tetra pack and sell it publicly! So cool!"

Since then, I often buy Heavenly Blush Yogurt ^.^
*It's moment of truth*


I've have been a big fan of yogurt since I was in school! Why? Because it's good for health and I can drink it without feel guilty :D I will explain more about the benefits of yogurt on this post.. First of all I'd like to introduce you more about this yogurt ^.^
