#PixyTokyoBeautyTrip


Hello lovelies,

a few days ago, I was invited by Pixy to witness the journey of 10 beauty bloggers competing with each other to win a trip of a lifetime, Pixy Tokyo Beauty Trip.

-*-


This is the second time Pixy held this kind of competition and the whole procedure is similar from the first. There's blogging, vlogging, voting and then live competition.  Winners has been selected from blogging and now it's the vloggers turn.

Their quests is easy, showing how they use Pixy products on their makeup routine. The toughest part is the voting where hmm, I don't think it's pretty fair since it doesn't really show quality but how much they can get those votes (no matter how).

During the event, 10 finalist has to do a live makeup, being interviewed like any beauty pageant, and then 2 winners will join the other two to Tokyo.

-*-

After 4 long hours, finally here are the winners for Pixy Tokyo Beauty Trip 'season' 2. They look so happy and one of the winner even shed tears when she knew she is one of the winner, congratulations!! I hope they all have a wonderful time in Tokyo with Pixy, representing Indonesia and the brand itself.

-*-


I personally haven't try PIxy Cosmetics and they gave us a bunch of products inside the goodie bag. I took this opportunity as a chance to try on the cosmetics. There's the BB Cream, compact powder, eyeliners, blush on, mascara, eyeliner and lip stick plus some lip creams which I'm so keen to try.

Every product comes with box with details written on it. A few instruction and tips with ingredients.

-*-


The box and packaging clearly seen a bit flimsy, it was made as a budget friendly brand but it works. The product does works well. So even thou' it comes in a low price products, they still deliver a relatively good products to be used.

-*-



The variety of the shades are presentable too. It has the basic and some trendy addition. Customer can easily pick at least one that they'll like. Seems like Mandom has done a lot of research in Indonesia to make it work, clearly bloggers are raving their products too, especially the new Lip Cream.

-*-



But during the event, the product being highlighted is their new compact powder, the Cover Smooth.

-*-



The product comes in a white and blue details. Simple yet lovely indeed.

-*-


And of course, among the first product I've tried is their Lip Cream. I have the one in red and fuchsia.

The formula is light and dry in the end, it has a matte finish and feels so thin on the lips. But as seen on the images below, the color is there.

-*-


(me using fuchsia)
It has a distinct vanilla cupcake kinda scent, easy to glide on the lips, doesn't bleed, waterproof but doesn't stand a chance against oil, hence, cleaning it with a oil base cleanser wont be a problem, doesn't stain, and again, as long as they don't touch any oils, it stays on the lips.

-*-




(me using the red tone).

The packaging is pretty, the container comes with a pink top and at the bottom, it shows us the color of the shade inside.

Bottom line, their products are not something we can easily forget. They are cute, colorful, bright, some are bold, user friendly, and I'll definitely share more reviews on their products soon on my blog.

Thank you Pixy Indonesia.

L'Oréal Excellence Fashion Sparkling Visible Color in Intense Spicy Red



Hi lovelies,

yes, my hair is red now, it's spicy red and pretty intense too.

I recently dyed my hair using L'Oreal Excellence Fashion Sparkling Visible Color in Intense Spicy Red. It was one of the product I've bought in Malaysia since the tone is not available in Indonesia. And since I've bleached my hair before, the color just blend into my hair without any problem and the shade are so vivid on a bleached hair like mine.

-*-


I've dyed them myself at home, I've post a short clip of my before and after on my instagram account @Carnellin, nowadays updating on instagram is so easy and fast too, I always make live updates there.

Now, back to the product.
What are the things inside the package? There's developer, color mixture, gloves, pre coloring care, and after coloring care.

The first thing that has to be done is using pre coloring care on a dry (and preferably dirty, haven't been wash for at least a day) hair. Apply all over from the mid length to the ends. Pay attention on the ends more as the farther the hair from the roots, the less nourished it is and dryer it will be, hence need more help from the pre-coloring care that looks like a thick creamy conditioner.

Mix the color mixture in the tube into the bottle where the developer is. Close the lid tight and mix everything vigorously making sure they are ready to be used, shaking around 5 minutes all over the direction should do the trick. Open the lid and change into the brush lid provided. Don't wait up and start distributing on the hair avoiding the roots.

Clips, hair comb, mirrors (lots of them), newspaper to cover the floor, towels for the neck, everything needed for the process is surely helpful. The more you do it, the more 'articulate' you'll be with the whole DIY. The key is to:
1. Brush the hair before coloring.
2. Use hair clips on 4 different section as it helps making sure the colorant is distributed evenly.
3. Several mirrors on several different angle from back to sides and front help the eyes to get 360 degree vision.
4. Always calm down and ready for any surprise, as long as there's no irritation occur (burning sensation), you're fine.
5. In the salon, the stylist always leave the colorant develop longer on the hair than instructed, but not necessarily means really long time, let's say 30 minutes, make it into 45 minutes, or so.
If you're not sure, juts keep checking your hair and see whether the color are 'in' and the desired color are in your hair.
6. Protection, protection, protection. Protect your clothes from the colorant, your skin (including scalp if possible), ear, forehead and neck are the common victims, and use plenty of masks after coloring the hair for at least a month to seal the moisture in.

-*-




After waiting for around 45 minutes or perhaps almost an hour, I rinse my hair and oh my, it was bleeding so bad, just like using manic panic, the color runs endlessly. And I waited until it clears off and it never did. It is almost a week since I dyed my hair and it still bleed.

The towels are all stained and my neck too. This is indeed fashion color since it goes everywhere. The color is so pretty and vivid but it does bleeds.

-*-


Overall,

A great hair color with intense color. Very easy to be used and the care is wonderful, from the pre colorant to after care (conditioner) that I could use for around 4 days (for medium length hair) as a conditioner that made my hair so smooth and soft to the ability to stay true. The only thing that becomes the problem that it bleeds pretty much everything the hair touches.

So in the end, if you're okay with the stain, go with the color. Remember that this shade is possible after the hair is bleached.

Clear Turn Babyish Moisture Mask


Hello lovelies,

who want a babyish skin that has clear clarity, so plump and moist that no wrinkle could ever land on?! I guess we all are. We want those super smooth, silky, lovely skin that never gets old. Well, inspired by the baby skin, Kose Cosmeport produce these masks that comes in a set (so as far as I know, it was sold in 7 pieces per package) to be used for a week.

-*-

Ideal 20-something skin!

-*-

The masks itself is pretty plain like any other face mask, white, cottony and easy to be used. The formula is a bit milky and feels comfortable on the skin. I usually use one after shower and cleaning my skin, put on one toner when the skin is still damp.

The mask dries up pretty fast, 15 minutes and it feels like paper. I took it off and it does give my skin a nice moisturizing effect, I top it off with my regular moisturizer and the skincare routine is done.

Since the package filled with 7 masks, I'm using it one by one for 7 days and it continue to give the skin that pleasant hydration all through the week and does help my skin to appear baby-like. So plump and bouncy.

A great product to be used on daily basis, it pretty much replace serum or when used together add another boost of moisture to the routine.

The masks is perfect for Asian feature, it's not too big.

I got mine from a recent trip to Japan but the product is available on Rakuten as well.

Wardah Exclusive Lipstick


Hello everyone,

the local brand from Indonesia called Wardah has gain a lot of attention lately. They are budget friendly, works pretty well most of the time and the colors are just irresistible.

Coming from a sister brand called Make Over that is focusing on makeup, Wardah comes with a twist for skincare and emphasizing on being Halal.

-*-




http://www.wardahbeauty.com

Enriched with Jojoba Oil and Squalene that helps moisturize lips, and Vitamin E to nourish lips.
Its high content of oil results a good glossy look on lips
Multicolor lipstick that gives optimal polish in a single stroke
Available in 27 colors

-*-


Exclusive Lipstick, comes in a regular lipstick container with a shade of a blue-turqoise-cyan just like the brand.

There's not much of details can be found on their official website, but on the packaging, the necessary information is listed on their ingredients.

-*-


This is it, the lipstick, it has a smooth formula, easy to be used and the color is there. It doesn't hide nor comes in a sheer formula, but they know what Indonesian like, a pigmented lipstick.

And number 21 is a beautiful coral.

It's still transfer and when used without lip liner can bleed a little but it was a wonderful product with no complain whatsoever. The formula feels comfortable on the lips and I haven't experience any discomfort nor allergies for using it. And I've been using the lippies for weeks now.

-*-


Bottom line, a pretty product not to be missed. Budget friendly, comes with pigment and last pretty long when used without being touched, wiped off or during a meal. Aside from that, it's great :D

They have many shades too, from red, pinks to nudes. But mostly it's pinks and reds.

Phytoprogenium

Hi lovelies,

this is Phyto ultra-gentle intelligent shampoo. It comes in a luxurious packaging and when I opened the lid, the scent is amazingly beautiful.

It was delicate, soft and reminds me a lot of shampoo that was made with wheat. And apparently, on the ingredients, there is oat. Why is it important? Oat is famous for hydrating and conditioning the hair and the protein helps build the strength of the hair. Hence many good hair care products contain those ingredients.

-*-

The perfect shampoo to preserve the balance of the scalp. So delicate that you can use every day!
Shampoo after shampoo, PHYTOPROGENIUM strengthens the self-defense of the scalp. Many times you use it, the more the balance of the scalp is preserved, plus the hair is healthy and beautiful.

In its formulation an unpublished active, the Progénium acting intelligently on the ecosystem of the scalp: preserves its beneficial flora while reducing the presence of harmful germs. Its soothing agents and anti-oxidants make it an excellent daily shampoo.
  • Apply shampoo to wet hair.
  • Massage gently.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
You can use it on a daily basis or alternating with another shampoo according to your desires or needs.

-*-


So pretty much, it is a shampoo, but what makes it different is the fact that it contain ingredients that are actually good for the hair and scalp. Look closely on the image below, no silicone, no paraben, no sls, as in no known harmful ingredients or stuff that clogged the scalp and made the hair worst in the end. So, it's all good.

Shampoo is like our cleanser for the scalp and hair, most shampoo on the market only make the hair appear good and silky and smooth with tons of silicone that actually blocked the scalp. And ones might wondering why they get their scalp so oily and getting greasier and greasier and then, the worst thing happen. As the silicone clogged the scalp even worse, it made the hair unable to grow properly.

So avoid using silicone anywhere near the scalp, so silicone should never be in a shampoo.

-*-



The product can be used on daily basis, or like said on the details, use it with other shampoo on any other day based on the hair's need.

And after shampooing, as usual, use mask or conditioner that matches the hair without ever touching the scalp. Hair mask and conditioner is made for the hair, not the scalp, except scalp mask.

-*-



Thank you so much Phyto, see you again soon!!

Phyto Secret De Nuit

Hello lovelies,

a few weeks ago I was invited by Phyto and received some products as the goodies. This is one of the product.

As I am an avid hair trend, from colors to texture and everything in between, caring for my hair is a must on daily basis. And I only choose products that are best for the hair and scalp too.

-*-


Beauty brands are filled with sleeping mask and night creams that help our facial skin looks amazing in the morning, now hair care brands also contributing 'sleeping masks' for the hair, hence Secret De Nuit from Phyto is here.

The bottle comes in navy blue, glass-glossy like pump container and looks lovely.

Details on every nuke of the packaging.

-*-

Their official website also providing many detailed information.

A luxurious replenishing and regenerating night treatment for softer, silkier, shinier hair upon waking. Acting at night, when the hair's ability to repair itself peaks.

Meticulously selected for their regenerative and antioxidant properties, black orchid extract, grape procyanidins, ceramides, and essential fatty acids are blended in Secret de Nuit. This incredibly luxurious treatment goes to work as you sleep to intensely hydrate, replenish and help strengthen hair's ability to defend itself against external aggressors. Wake up to radiantly soft, supple, manageable hair that looks its healthy best. In a clinical study* 91% of women woke up to healthier, repaired, softer hair. * Study was carried by an independent laboratory on 32 women. Consumer findings in a 4 week product test of usage.

Brush hair to remove any styling residue. Work a walnut-size amount with fingers onto lengths and ends before going to bed. Repeat 2 to 3 times depending on the hair porosity and thickness. Comb through hair for even distribution. Leave-in. Use daily. Does not stain pillowcase.

Macadamia oil and ceramides, encapsulated in chronospheres, are time-released for night-long intense hydration, nourishment and repair. During the night, when hair is least exposed to external aggression, black grape procyanidins and black orchid extract form a protective shield to combat oxidation.


-*-

The product comes in this white lotion-like consistency. It is smooth, rather silky and smells like a delicate floral with musk. 

I use it during night time when I wasn't out and about during day time, so I think my hair is still pretty much clean.

I started by putting the product on my palm, work through it by distributing it on the palm and then let the fingers and palm touches the hairs start from the mid part all the way to the ends. I do have oily scalp, hence I'm avoiding them and focusing on my hair strands.

It was wonderful and pretty much similar to using a leave in conditioner but the oils in Secret De Nuit does feels comfortable and soft. Aside from using it as a night time treatment, I'm also using the formula when I'm at home and not going anywhere as a leave in product.

-*-


It also felt great on my hands. Not sticky, no residue, just pure comfort. Velvety soft and the powdery scent is somewhat relaxing too.

This is a perfect solution for me, I want my hair to stay protected and nourished anytime including when I sleep. So when I wake up there are less tangle, less friction during the night, hence the hair does improve overnight.

And during traveling (winter time), it is also a remarkable product that help reduce statics.

-*-


If you perhaps someone that has been struggling with dry undernourished hair, then perhaps Secret De Nuit could be a help. It provide the hair a pampering ingredients that protect, heals and help the hair to a better condition. Stronger, shinier and looks more alive.

The result is seen from the first use and the significant effect are said to be around 4 weeks. And as for me, I can see immediate effects from the shine, more hydrated and being tangle-free.

-*-


Thank you so much Phyto.

The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence SPF 50 PA++++

Hello lovelies,

ever wonder what your life might turn out if you choose things differently?

When I was a little girl, there's this book where we can choose how the story would end, so these Disney Princesses can perhaps have different endings according to the option we made. And since it's just a book, we can simply get back to the first page and fix everything we want to fix.

But life it's a one way street where we can't never get back, whatever option we have chosen in the past, sometimes, well, most of the time, it's can't be fixed. We have to live the consequences as it is. We're at the point of the road where we choose to regret our decision for the rest of our life in despair and negativity, or live our best no matter what.

The thing is, same goes with whatever we choose to use on our skin too. If you happen to be like me, rarely use sunscreen, or perhaps when staying on the beach for the whole day, using sunscreen only seen as necessary as the first deep and no reapply ever remembered, spots might comes up. And most of the time, redness and sensitivity occurs.

What can I do, live with it! And in the better future (like now) use a good sunscreen that protects the skin from the sun by all means.

-*-



There's so many sunscreen on the market nowadays and easy to find one anywhere. However there's only a few that really works, fine texture and feel undoubtedly comfortable.

I like the one that doesn't feel heavy nor rich yet give suffice protection to the skin.

And thanks to The Body Shop Indonesia, I just find out that, sunscreen are supposed to be reapplied after 4 hours no matter how high the SPF is since it gets removed either partially or the effectiveness reduced by far from sweating, wiping or just doesn't work as best as when it was first applied, more like worn off.

-*-



Aside from the Skin Defence, during the event, which was held in the middle of Grand Indonesia (East) Atrium, the set was build like a green lush forest. 

Here, everyone can have a skin check to know their skin condition and which products suits them best. This is happen to be key element in finding your dream skin.

The first step is to know what is the skin's current condition, and then, know the products, the ingredients that the skin's need and then the name of the products in The Body Shop range that cater that particular needs.

-*-


Aside from the skin check and knowing the skin and products for them, there is also beauty workshops, talk show, makeup demo that we can watch. So next time when The Body Shop is having an event in a mall, do come by and have a look, you can happily join the fun.

-*-


Now, back to the star of the event, Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence SPF 50 PA++++ but to know the product first, before it, there's Drops of Light.

-*-


Focusing on brightening the skin, Drops of Light consist of skincare products that helps reducing dark spots, uneven skin tone to help enlighten the whole skin tone.

Top it off with the Skin Defence as it helps to become the skin's umbrella from the sun. Prevention is always better.

-*-

The milky texture of Skin Defence is said to be the winner and loved by the speakers during the event. It is milk-to-water hence we can all imagine the lightness and how it felt on the skin. Fresh and dewy without being sticky nor uncomfortable in any way.

Which reminds me of the texture from one of the products in Drops of Light collection that is also light and watery-like.

-*-



Skin Defence is not as light as the lotion (like toner) from Drops of Light, but it is as comfortable as it is.

Upon use it is white and like a lotion in texture, but when touched and blended, it will turn clear and yes, watery, so the tag milk-to-water is simply spot on. The skin feels like using none, soft, velvety, no white cast, smells really good and flowery, it hug the skin comfortably and protect from the sun with the highest PA there is at the moment ++++.

-*-


So there you go, a sun protection that comes in a tube, with a texture so light that it made the skin feels so good and comfortable. Perfect for a day in the sun in the city life. Fragrant, without white cast and can be used under any makeup. Contain red algae, vitamin c and marula oil. 100% vegetarian, no paraben, no mineral oils and no paraffins. IDR 399.000 per tube that can last around a month when used twice daily on the facial skin, decollete, neck (plus ear and behind the neck for extra protection), and on the ends of our hair too.

Thank you The Body Shop Indonesia.
