Origins Out of Trouble

Hello lovelies,

this is the final mask out of three, I've reviewed the one for hydration (sleeping mask), deep pore cleansing (with charcoal), and now, the one that people with acne-prone skin would love to use, Out of Trouble. 

-*-



Which one is it? The one in the white tube.
Same size, same chubbiness, and later you'll see, they are all in the same high quality ingredients that speaks effectiveness.

-*-


Drink Up - Intensive is for dry skin or any skin that love hydration, Clear Improvements with charcoal that deep cleans and detoxing the skin, and now Out Of Trouble that I've been using to diminish my acne during that special time during a month where my zits are emerging with anger.

Some time they are tiny and easy to be forgotten, but sometime, they are raging with ooze and pain, it's undeniably annoying.

-*-



Like all of their products, everything is written clearly on the packaging, providing ample information like ingredients and how to use to make it effective.

This is probably the most suitable mask for oily skin too.

-*-





What it is:
A multi-action mask that rescues troubled skin.

What it is formulated to do:
When skin is too slick or when more pressing problems start to pop up, it's Origins to the rescue. Formulated with natural troubleshooters, including super-absorbent zinc oxide and sulfur plus calming camphor, this mask rapidly responds to problem skin with a three-part plan: sop up oily-shine, slough off sticky, dead cells, and sweep away irksome debris.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
Best for combination to oily skin.

Suggested Usage:
-Layer over clean face and throat.
-Avoid eye area.
-Wait 10 minutes.
-Remove with damp washcloth.

-Camphor: This highly aromatic herb has been prized for its purifying and preservative powers. It is also a counter-irritant and skin purifier.

Water, Cetyl Esters, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Camphor, Ceteareth-20, Salicylic Acid, Colloidal Sulfur, Butylene Glycol, Bentonite, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

-*-


The color of the thick cream is white and immediately, I've notices the richness of the texture, yet still very smooth and soft, like they were blend very well.

The smell of salicylic acid is so obvious and noticeable alongside with other herbs commonly use for anti acne product, it was like they are using the best ingredients since it is so powerful.

Look at the image below, the acne that I've been talking about, the one that making me cringe.

-*-


This is the only mask out of the three that I've been using only on the area affected by oiliness and acne. So I don't use it all over. Since my skin is more to the dry side.

Still, this is by far the most comfortable anti acne, anti oil, purifying mask I've tried. Usually, they'll sting, irritate, and make me feel very uncomfortable with the dryness, but Out of Trouble have been purely gentle without neglecting their effectiveness. Which make it, again, probably the best mask I've tried for acne and oil care.

-*-

I can combine using the mask with others like the charcoal that deep cleans. Usually after using the mask, acne will disappear in 1-2 days without leaving a mark. This is what I find to be amazing, I know some people may have more problematic acne, so using it more often can help shorten the healing time, so the acne will become less raging. Sebum, greasy skin, are no longer felt, the skin will experience the cleanliness like never before and the skin stays matte longer without the side effect of dryness nor dehydration.

-*-



These three is definitely a must have collection for everyone, we all need a deep cleanse, nourishing and hydration, plus once in a while skin SOS with Out of Trouble. I'm definitely recommending the masks for everyone I love.

-*-



What do you think? A flawless skin always appeal attractive, right?!

The only cons about these babies are probably the price that's a bit high, but I assure you, they worth it.

-*-


Thanks for reading my post, see you again soon.

Pore Returning Iron Fill Up Corrector

-*-

One thing that made me want to try the product, is not just about the details (shared below) but the container that become one with the metal applicator. This is genius, it's really handy and we don't have to troubled ourselves in finding one where it is attached to the product.

The box, product, and the whole packaging looks exclusive, like a high end product with high quality and efficacy.

-*-


I'm excited to try it on and the thing is, Pore Returning Iron Fill Up Corrector not just great for the eyes, but for laughing lines too.

-*-

Easy to use, convenient, doesn't have any scent (hence suitable for sensitive skin due to fragrance). It may be creamy and feels so rich, but on the skin, they'll melt (like seen on the image from the website above).

-*-




After applying using the applicator, I can simply massage gently by tapping using the tips of my fingers, and then I can also use the back of the metal head. The coolness of the metal head is perfect to compress the eye bags.

-*-

Look! Like I never had eye bags :D It soothe, calm, hydrates and help fills up the nutrition for a wrinkle free eyes. The cream is not sticky nor feels greasy too. It is smooth and comfortable.

As eyes area is the first thing 'affected' by aging, alongside with laughing lines, women sometime feels insecure and want the eyes to appear younger and fresher again. Botox and other kind of procedure may help instantly but it cost a lot and has risks too. By using the right product, our skin may continue to look younger longer. The way we look outside is not really our number one priority, but when we look our best it helps our mood and confidence inside.

Origins Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores



Hello lovelies,

I'm back with more review for Origins with the masks for every climate.

In this collection I'll share with you the Clear Improvement made for acne and oil control. Still, this product is made suitable for all skin type from dry, normal to oily, amazing isn't it?! So, those who have dry skin with acne, or normal skin with acne, or dehydrated skin with greasy oily, can all use this product.

-*-





The box contain information to all of the masks inside.

On each of the tube, there's details too, no worries about finding all the necessary information as their website also provide everything well.

-*-




From the how to use to ingredients are all there. And a special container is made for Clear Improvement as we can see what's inside the tube.

-*-




What's so special about Clear Improvement? It's the active charcoal inside.

Charcoal

Known as the “black diamond”, Charcoal has been prized for its purifying properties dating back to the Ming Dynasty in 1486. It’s created from Bamboo Ash and valued for its excellent absorption abilities. When applied to skin, it acts like a magnet to draw out dirt, debris and impurities.

-*-



Nature's complexion clean-up crew clears the way for skin to act its best. Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin looks clear, feels perfectly pure.

How to use:
1. Once a week, open pores with warm water
2. Apply mask, and allow to dry.
3. Rinse well.
Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau; Myrtus Communis (Myrtle) Leaf Water , Kaolin , Bentonite , Butylene Glycol , Montmorillonite , Polysorbate 20 , Peg-100 Stearate , Charcoal Powder , Xanthan Gum , Lecithin , Peg-150 Distearate , Propylene Glycol Stearate , Sorbitan Laurate , Glycerin , Propylene Glycol Laurate , Simethicone , Caprylyl Glycol , Ethylhexylglycerin , Hexylene Glycol , Trisodium Edta , Dehydroacetic Acid , Phenoxyethanol


-*-



The thing about living in a tropical country where it is hot and humid (even when the rain season is here) is we sweat a lot and the pores tend to opened up due to the condition, hence we do attract dirt more than during dry or cold condition. That's why we need to take a shower twice a day and keeping ourselves clean more often.

Same goes with the face, it becomes oilier, stickier and for sure, attract more germs (hiks, cry out loud).

Look at the close up image of my face.

-*-



This is after cleansing, so there's no makeup whatsoever, the pores are visible since dirt are trapped, the nose especially, there's blackheads and acne on the side of the chin.

-*-



Above is the texture of the mask, not as dense nor thick like other charcoal mask I know, this is easier to distribute and dried up to making the skin feels pulled.

There's no sting, redness or allergic reaction to irritation, everything is pure comfort using Clear Improvement. I love it as sometime I feel concerned using products that cause tingling sensation on the skin.

-*-






I've been using the mask numerous time and always have a good time, I can use it with the other mask for acne (also from Origins) or alone all over my face for that 'detoxing' ability.

-*-




Use a brush for mask or your finger, it really doesn't matter.

The product has no distinct scent whatsoever, so it is perhaps unscented too, so the smell is pretty much like nothing (typical of charcoal).

Those with oily skin or acne prone or problems with smelly pores (due to being clogged) charcoal can cleanse everything well and absorb the smell too.

-*-




I love how they make this product as it is so gentle even to sensitive dry skin like mine, yet so effective even to my husband oily and acne prone skin. It's like my holy grail now, I can't never feel the same or looking for another product, I can see (ehm feel) why Origins become so famous (and pricey, hiks).

-*-




Enough with the feelings of using it, trust me it's so good, but you want to see result, right?! See the image below, the before after is so obvious.

-*-



Check out the pores on the upper cheeks and look at the amazing differences on my nose, the blackheads reduces by far and the skin appear in better mood thanks to the smaller pores. Like all the dirt have been sucked away by the mask, they are no longer have things that clogging. It is so good that the mask show significant improvement within single usage, this is why I keep using them and can't seem to get enough.

I'm using it on weekly basis to make the skin even more flawless. And of course, from cleaner and healthier skin comes better collaboration when using makeup.

-*-




A less problematic skin will always looks pretty.

Thank you so much Origins for the pores that shrunk, cleaned properly, and clearer complexion. This is for sure, highly recommended.

Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation

Hello lovelies,

Lakme Absolute have another foundation to share with you and this one is Argan Oil Serum Foundation with SPF 45, and mine happen to be in Rose Silk (02).

The product comes in a pipette kind of container, like the ones that we see a lot on youtuber, where they drip drip drip the foundation on to their skin before blending it. It looks encouraging, right?! I do make one myself on my instagram (@Carnellin), do check it out.

-*-




Nourished skin with a flawless finish is now a reality with the all new Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation.

This serum formula works like magic to create a flawless, dewy finish look to your face. A naturally radiant glow with medium coverage, this foundation simultaneously moisturises your skin. Available in 6 distinct shades to suit most Indian skin tones, the packing is premium, modern and with a dropper format. Its silky fluid texture blends easily into your skin and also has SPF 45 for protection against sun damage.

-*-

Step 1: Shake up your bottle of foundation; this ensures the serum and colour tint are fully mixed.
Step 2: Use the dropper (which is inside the bottle) to apply the foundation onto your makeup brush.
Step 3: Stick to a drop or two if you want a sheer look and apply it all over your face including your neck.Step 4: For fuller coverage, build up the intensity slowly until you get your desired look.

-*-



Look how the foundation unifies the skin tone into an even and flawless look. The coverage is definitely there and the scent is definitely perfumed since it's obvious. And it will linger for a while. The product is slightly rich and feels a bit thick but on the skin it will turn into velvety and then powdery like, so it's pretty comfortable with the right amount of coverage for the skin. Large pores, fine lines, to faint imperfection are easily disappear.

For deep marks, layered up the foundation and perhaps add a bit of concealer too for a maximum effect.

Top it off with a dash of finishing powder to set the base or perhaps after colors. The makeup usually last around whole day when inside a controlled room like cool and dry, but for sure, ones skin condition and activity also helps determining the longevity. Bring along a dusting powder or loose powder to freshen up the look and help it stays longer.

-*-


For those (perhaps like me) who like to mix colors, it is possible, it helps me to get that exact shade that I want. Highlight and contour also possible using a lighter shade and darker shade on the areas I prefer.

The product is easily mixed and the setting time is good, it's not super slow nor super fast, I say it's around 3-5 minutes, so we do have time to blend.

-*-


Thank you so much Lakme Absolute  Indonesia for the Argan Oil Serum Foundation.

Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos


Hello lovelies,

as a blush addict who doesn't seems to ever get enough of that rosy cheeks or perhaps something that was so pink or a healthy hue. Apparently they also made the complexion appear fresher and younger.

Lakme Absolut Face Stylist Blush Duos in Pink is here for my delight.

-*-




The product comes in a black box and a round shaped blush duo with a small brush too. I prefer my own brush but the small one provided is enough during traveling.

It was said to be blush duo since there's two tones in one container, it helps providing a mode multi-dimension look for the face than a uni-tone.

The blush comes in two variants, and both are two tones.

-*-


Suggestion:

  • Untuk warna kulit terang, gunakan Pink dan Peach Blush

  • Untuk warna kulit gelap, gunakan Coral dan Rose Blush

  • Gunakan kuas untuk dipakai di bulatan pipi

  • Selain blush on, bisa juga digunakan sebagai eye shadow

-*-





There's a tad differences between the the two shade, one is more sparks (peach) and the pink is more to demi matte. A combination between these babies provide a more natural healthy blush that glows radiantly.

A blush may be just a blush but somehow it helps creating a more romantic look on me, speaking of romance, this is February, a month of love, time to get lovey doey.

-*-



The product price is around 250k.

The blush can be layered to create a more deep and pinkish look or just enough like you're having a blush. Carry it anywhere for an easy top up :D
