The product comes in a pump bottle, the liquid is watery and the color is yellowish with a hint of orange brown. The scent is like a fresh tamarind, not sour thou, but fresh and slightly sweet.

So far, the toner feels very comfortable on my skin, I have a dry and sensitive skin, the toner never aggravate my skin nor made them dry. It doesn't enlarged the pores nor creates problem like oiliness nor acne. It is a toner which I think can be used to just about anyone and any age. I hope they made one in spray container to be used anytime. It has that calming and softening effect that freshen the skin at the same time.

Last but not least, does it worth to try? It think it very much is.

The color of the product inside is a creamy orange liquid, it lathers but not bountifully. The smell of orange is emerging, with a hint of something like lavender, so it's a mix of energizing and relaxing at the same time. The skin feels clean afterwards and fresh, I like the clean sensation it brings and that zing. It's zesty for sure and there's a cold like after taste.

The scent doesn't last long, thou. After taking the shower, around 1 hour later the scent is all gone. So it is pretty much shower experience only. 

-*-


Overall,

a body wash made for an orange lover, the scent is pretty much like a sweet fresh orange ready to be consume, it is ripe and juicy.

The body wash cleanses the skin well without any sticky feeling nor dryness afterwards. The scent last only a while and the product continue to give the skin a long lasting freshness.

Oya Clinic Body Shaping 2nd Treatment


Hello lovelies,

I'm back with another Body Shaping Treatment at Oya Clinic. This time, I'm trying on the same treatment but in different branch, it's in their main one in Menteng area.

The location is near many famous restaurants and the designs inside the clinic is gorgeous.

-*-




After arriving, within 5 minutes my room is ready. Hmm, it's not as clean as usual, there's still some leftovers from the previous client on the open trash can with items for private part. I think they could be better than this, on my other visits it was fine and clean.

-*-




After undressing and get into a disposable pants and bra, the treatment begin with something for lymphatic, a machine suck the sides of my neck, it's like suction cups used in TCM. It felt comfortable, I wish the therapist helps with my shoulders too >.<

-*-



Soon after that, continuing using a warm to hot metal plate that rubbed all over the area. We can choose an area per treatment. The therapist said, usually it took around 10 treatments for a significant effect.... or at least for someone like me haha.

The Body Shaping treatment at Menteng branch is indeed more comfortable, no electric feeling on this part, it was just warm with a bit of heat at some point, I hope it melts away all my fat.

-*-



The therapist seems to be working hard melting my fats, hmm 5 kg of overweight is there, do melts them away please, I want them all gone, disappear and made me slim :D

-*-



 The therapist told me that the effectiveness also lays on the hands of those who do the treatment, so it's not just about the machine, the therapist must know which part to do it more and which is less. So even on one area of tummy, there are several areas from upper, lower, sides and back too. Mine is focusing on the front, upper side to be exact.

-*-



And then, it's that buzzing time, the part where my tummy is wrapped on special cream and the rubbery plates that felt so cold (since the previous part is warm to hot), and it was 'plastered' tight to my tummy all around the area.

This is the toning part where it helps strengthening the muscle, creating the same vibration as when we're exercising to build the firmness. This is the part where every part of the treatment combine, after being melts, it toned and firmed. This is why one treatment is equal with hours in the gym where we need to warm up, cardio and build the muscle.

-*-


And the final part is sucking again on some parts of the tummy. It felt somewhat pain on the lower tummy where the skin is loose after pregnancy. So the therapist move it up above, so communicating with the therapist all the way through the treatment is important to making sure it was effective and convenient at the same time.

-*-




And here it is, the final result, there are no redness, no after care needed, the skin feels comfortable and toned. It helps building up my body even after the treatment, the doctor also did told me how the treatment goes, it will continue working even after treatment.

-*-



What about the measurement? I lost 5 cm that day, definitely an improvement I like to have. Now I just need to keep up with continuing exercise, proper diet and more of these treatments please.

-*-



Thank you so much Oya Clinic.

See you again on my next treatment.

Clinique Pop Matte


Hello lovelies,

yesterday was a colorful day indeed, Clinique has just officially launched their new addition to the Pop family, it's Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer and Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer.

-*-




Located at Atico by Javanegara, the event was a full house. It started with registration and everyone has to pick their shade. Each shade may come in two variant, the Pop Matte Lip Colour or Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour. What does it means? One comes in a 'regular' form of a lipstick while the other is a liquid lipstick.

Pop Matte Lip Colour comes with 16 shades in total and Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour in 8 shades. You can choose from bright red, deep plum, to nudes and lovely pinks.

As for me, from Ripe Pop, Petal Pop, Flame Pop, .... noticed all the 'Pop' behind each shade?! I choose Boom Pop Liquid Lip Matte Lip Colour as my first option. The texture is smooth, creamy, rich and thick. The color is sublime, it's so there and gorgeous, no need guessing on how it will comes out on the lips or skin, it'll come as it is.

-*-

The color is build-able but stay true to it shade. Covers by hide every imperfection, mild in scent, demi matte, provide comfort for long wear, not waterproof nor kiss proof, but resist water although not thoroughly, easily cleansed using makeup remover or cleansing wipes and still doesn't leave a dry ends.

-*-


And above is me using Cake Pop, it's the nudest one in the Liquid Matte family. Some of the shades are available in both texture, while some only on certain texture (lipstick or liquid). I prefer the liquid since it already have the applicator, lipstick is fine but I love using a lip brush for that perfected finish.

-*-


Clinique Pop Liquid™ Matte Lip Colour + Primer

Lightweight liquid lipstick covers lips with lush pigment and a modern matte finish. Wears all day. Moisturizing formula with built-in primer provides a smooth, even glide so lips feel as fresh as they look.

-*-


Clinique Pop™ Matte Lip Colour + Primer

Weightless yet pigment-saturated formula hugs lips with 8 hours of creamy matte comfort. Built-in primer helps smooth lips for an easy, even glide every time.

What do you think? Clinique has gotten better and better in the coloring department isn't it?! And now, let's just sit back and relax, hoping they keep bringing the whole collection to Indonesia, from Tinted Oil to Liquid Lacquer, not to forget, the collaboration with Crayola, yums!

INGLOT AMC Lip Pencil Matte


Hello lovelies,

after their recent launch in Grand Indonesia some time ago, beauty enthusiast are getting more interest in INGLOT. Since many of them already know the brand and purchased the goods via online shopping, many are already comparing the price sold locally.

And yes, it was higher than the one sold online. INGLOT is a brand that was known to be quite budget friendly out there, but here, their price is similar to high ends.

-*-



The do have many varieties offered and shades to select, but I do hope their pricing could be better.

Now, without further ado, this is my first official review for INGLOT. It's AMC Lip Pencil Matte in shade 33.

The product itself comes in 21 shades, from nudes, pinks, reds, orange, purple, and something that I love, in between, like red wine or burgundy. It was a delight.

Number 33, the shade that I have is like a plum. Rich, beautiful and mysterious.

-*-

A pencil that is thick enough to use as lipstick, yet it can be sharpened to a fine point for precise application as a lip liner. Avocado oil moisturizes, smoothes, and regenerates the lips whilst the modern formula ensures a long lasting even coverage with a velvety matte finish.

-*-


Details are written on the packaging, the ingredients and everything is white on black >.-

-*-




The color is there, it's vivid, highly pigmented, matte alright, but definitely not velvety, it felt so dry on the lips. When look up closed it looks really dry. I suggest using a lip balm first before application to help smooth things out.

Aside from the dryness, the product does works well as a lip liner and coloring the lips too.

It has good staying power and resisting water, clean them up with a good makeup remover or cleansing oil.

-*-


Overall, a lip pencil that provide color and coverage, need a bit of lip balm for a softer and better application, so it doesn't feel so rough and help to get that velvety effects all over.
