Random Story: Mixed Berry and Dates

Tergoda melihat berry-berry lucu di Farmer's Market. Bawa ke kantor agar bisa dimakan kalo udah mulai ngantuk-ngantuk. Ada strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, dan blackberry. Makannya pakai yoghurt leci. Yummy!

Kalo mulai laper-laper berat makan roti keju pakai kurma :)

L’occitane Shea Honey Whipped Body Cream

Ah, body cream…

Lately I’ve been buying so many body creams, I don’t know why I keep buying, the impulse just came out of nowhere.  This one is the newest addition to my collection, L’occitane Shea Honey Whipped Body Cream.

The main ingredients in this whipped cream is honey and 10% shea butter, both are known as a great moisturizer for dry skin.

I really like the texture,  light airy whipped cream, I never used something like this before. Very unique, you can se all the pores in the jar.  When applied on the skin, it goes on smoothly without oily or sticky feeling,  my skin just soaks that right in. A little melts a long way. I think this will last on me for quiet a while.

The scent  is strange, like a honey mixed with burned caramel. Not a bad smell, but for me it just weird, thankfully it doesn’t linger on my skin.

I think I might have to stock up on this product since it is limited edition. It is expensive but totally worth it.

Price: Rp. 335.000

Valentino “Valentina” Eau de Parfum

Describe in three words?
Sweet,  sensual, and  strong

The bottle?
To be honest, the bottle is the first thing that draws me to it, a clear flat circle glass filled with pale rose gold liquid inside.  Three neutral colored roses in the front add feminine touch to it,  a silver and black nozzle give it a classical edge. Just stunning, very sophisticated, Every women would want a bottle  on their dresser.

What it smells like?
Top Notes: Bergamot, Tuber
Middle Notes: Jasmine, African Orange Flower, Tuberose, Wild Strawberry
Base Notes: Virginia Cedar, Amber, Vanilla

When I spray  it, I immediately smell something sharp and fruity, maybe that’s the bergamot and tuber. After that it transform into this creamy thick  jasmine with vanilla sweetness.  Dry down is warm , a powdery notes.

The composition is designed as a fresh floral - fruity – oriental. Full of contradictions, simultaneously delicate and strong, elegant, sensual, rebellious and fun.

For me this fragrance is somewhat hard to wear, something about it just doesn’t agree with my body chemistry, like harmonious orchestra, there is one false note heard from the back. I don’t know what it is, but I will continue to wear this perfume.

What kind of woman would wear this perfume?
Definitely not teenager, it is for someone more mature, who rocks a signature Rosso Dress  by Valentino with ease and confident. She’s mysterious yet approachable. Quiet yet sensual. Feminine yet in command. A total seductress. 

What kind of occasion suitable for this perfume?
I think this one would work in office setting, a first date in expensive restaurant, even to cuddle with your loved one in the night. I could see thing being worn to so many events.

How about the sillage and  longevity?
Sillage is moderate, the first spray is quite strong. But after a few minutes it is mellowed down, not so loud. Sadly longevity is not good, since it is Eau de Parfum,  I expect it to last at least 5 hours, but on my skin it only last around 2 hours, after that I can only detect a faint scent that very close to the skin.

I got mine for Rp 870.000 (50 ml/1.7 FL.OZ) at C&F Perfumery


Jumat tanggal 7 Juni 2013, aku datang ke Erha Clinic Serpong untuk melakukan Acne Peeling (Rp 275.000,-)
Sabtu tanggal 22 Juni 2013, akupun kembali melakukan peeling yang sama. (Rp 275.000,-)
Sabtu tanggal 29 Juni 2013, aku melakukan Deep Pore Cleansing Therapy (200.000,-) kali ini facialnya tidak sesakit facial aku yang pertama, aku merasa terapisnya lebih gentle dalam melakukan proses ekstraksi ditambah lagi komedo-komedo lebih lunak dan gampang dikeluarkan karena sudah 2 kali melakukan acne peeling. Komedo yang dipencet pun tidak sebanyak facial aku yang pertama. Namun merah-merah pada kulit tetap ada, ini yang aku kurang suka dari DPCT.
Rabu tanggal 10 Juli 2013, aku kembali melakukan acne peeling (Rp 275.000,-)

Sehari-hari aku terus pakai produk Erha yang diresepkan Dr. Prima untuk aku, produk-produk tersebut adalah:

Acne Clensing Scrub with Benzoil Peroxide
Acne Moisturizer Gel 1 (AMG1)  Rp 75.000,-
Acne Foundation 5  (AF 5) Rp 75.000,-

Acne Clensing Scrub with Benzoil Peroxide ( ASC BP)
Acne Moisturizer Gel 2 (AMG 2) Rp 50.000,-
Acne Night Cream 3 (ANC 3) Rp 75.000,-

Acne Spot Treatment (AST)

(bukan rekomendasi Dokter, aku pakai kalau kulit terasa kering) Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Serum, review here: : )

Khusus untuk Acne Night Cream 3 (ANC 3) aku kurang suka baunya karena mirip belerang. Lalu, entah mengapa aku melihat kulit aku lebih berminyak ketika menggunakan krim-krim pagi, aku kurang suka. Selain itu aku belum melihat perkembangan yang signifikan mengenai bekas-bekas jerawat aku. Mungkin perlu treatment yang lebih advance,  coba nanti aku konsultasikan lagi.
