COVERMARK Winter Coffret

Hello lovelies,

these are some of the babies I received during a recent event with COVERMARK, there are skincare and makeup such as the Winter Coffret.


On this post, I'll share about Jusme Color Winter Coffret that consist of an eye shadow palette and a lip gloss.


The product doesn't seem available on all of their official website (including Singapore's) and the details given on the packaging, which is readable to me, is the eyeshadow is named Y1 and the lip gloss is Y2.

Even thou they are born with simple code aka name, they work simply divide and wonderful.


Start from the silky and slippery yet provide enough color and lustrous gloss to my lips, it's Y2. So smooth, beautiful and doesn't have that one characteristic we all hate from a lip gloss, sticky, this one is not.

I'm using it on top of a lipstick, the lip gloss add tiny sparkles, watery like glossiness and the tiny tip able to made differences and goes as thin as a lip liner.


And here's Y1. The eyeshadows in trio shades of gold, rose gold and brown gold, all have that sparkles of gold and easy to be used thanks to the smooth and fine formula that doesn't falls out.

The color is pretty and has that immense kawaii look and gold glitters, I love using it on special occasion or on daily basis, it add some sp


Thank you so much COVERMARK Indonesia and Kawaii Beauty Japan for inviting me.

Votre Peau Vitamin C Serum

Hello lovelies,

a few moment ago a brand contacted me and introduce their new products. I was offered this vitamim C serum. Located in South Jakarta, Votre Peau is still rather new, around one year old with a few products offered to the customer. Do check out their website for further info.


Votre Peau Vitamin C
  • Merupakan suatu produk kecantikan yang dibuat oleh seorang dokter yang ahli dalam bidang kecantikan.Menggunakan bahan organik dan diproses dengan teknologi terbaik. Vitamin C merupakan salah satu produk unggulan kami. 
Manfaat Serum Vitamin C :
Sebagai Antioksidan kuat yang melindungi kulit terhadap (polusi, matahari, iklim, AC, asap rokok, dsb).
  • Merangsang pembentukan dan peningkatan produksi kolagen kulit, yang akan menjaga kekenyalan, kelenturan, serta kehalusan kulit.
  • Mencerahkan kulit ( brightening effect ). Tanpa efek samping yang merugikan. 
  • Menyamarkan kerutan, kantung mata dan lingkaran hitam di bawah mata.
  • Mencegah luka jerawat dan mengecilkan pori.

Komposisi bahan Vitamin C serum :
  • Purified (Aqua)
  • Disodium EDTA
  • Vegetable thickening
  • Na metabisulfite antioxidant
  • Citric acid
  • Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate

Cara Pemakaian Serum Vit C :

  • Aplikasikan tiga sampai empat tetes pada wajah dan leher.

  • Gunakan serum pada pagi dan malam hari secara teratur sebelum menggunakan cream perawatan wajah.


Au contraire to the introduction from the brand, the details regarding the product is pretty suffice on their website, from how to use to ingredients. But I don't see the percentage of the vitamin C since I've been using another vitamin c serum from another brand 10,5%.

Based on my personal experience and observation, the vitamin c in this serum is less or around 5 or 6%, which made the product pretty light and everyone could use it since some with sensitive skin could not even take vitamin c higher than 7,5%.

The texture is as seen on the image above, it is clear, gel-like, easy to be absorbed, slightly sticky at first but comfortable after absorbed and there's a slight of lemon scent hinted around 1 second. Using it as a serum is pretty light, in fact for me it was kinda too light, I guess the product suits best for those around early twenties or even slightly below. I can simply added another serum and it wont be a problem (at least so far). Any moisturizer used afterwards also doesn't work against each other. So, in my case, after trying it with numerous other products, it works just fine.

Do I see differences upon using it in an instant? Nope. It is a product that have to be kept used for an ample period of time before seeing a significant result, perhaps 4 weeks and on the skin that haven't really use serum or skincare diligently. Still, I do have expectancy upon this brand and willing to try another products from them since so far it didn't cause any discomfort from redness, allergic reaction, greasy nor acne, or any other form of reaction which is not preferred.

pros: lightweight, easy to be used on a cleaned and toned skin before moisturizer, anyone can use it male or female and the formula is pretty light. Price wise is more budget friendly that others in the market.
cons: it might took a while to see the 'dramatic' result.


Keep it away from the sunlight, since any product with vitamin, especially vitamin c need to be hide from the sun, keep it in a cool and shaded place.

Etude House Happy Essential Foam and Every Month Cleansing Foam

Hello lovelies,

cleanser is for sure one of the item we have to use on daily basis. Whether we like using skincare or not, all of us are using cleanser.

Going into a store like Etude House, we will be served with many options of cleanser.


From dry skin, severely dry, oily, dull, brightening to just about anything is here. I have problem choosing them and finally ends up with these three goodies.

Happy Essential Foam, Deep Moisturizing and Soothing Relief.


Happy Essential Foam
Fomulated with 40% moisturizers, this creamy cleansing foam gently removes impurities with rich lather, while Hyaluronic Acid promotes hydration.
Skin is happy again, feeling clean, smooth and soft.

Wet face. Squeeze small amount into palm and rub hands together to form lather.
Massage over face, avoiding eye area, then rinse thoroughly.

1. For external use only.
2. Avoid contact with eyes.
3. Keep out of reach of children.
4. Discontinue use if signs of irritation and/or rash appear.


The details given for the Happy Essential Foam is suffice, but Every Month Cleansing Foam does not.

Just a general information.

Number one from the Every Month Cleansing Foam collection is Avocado, Deep Moisturizing
1.AVOCADO - The Every Month Cleanser for Normal/Dry Skin removes impurities while soothing and comforting with avocado. This hydrating cleanser is also enriched with moisture-rich shea butter.

and number 7 is Aloe Vera, Soothing Relief

7.ALOE VERA- This is a soothing type of cleansing foam that has aloe vera extract that soothes and irritates skin. The aloe vera extract is known for its excellent moisturizing and soothing capabilities.


So do please read more on the packaging.

Or ask the staff upon purchasing on which one that suits you best.

I chose these three since it seems like they are the ones that are most compatible with my dry and sometime sensitive skin.


In terms of how to use, they are all pretty much the same. Wet the skin, lather the product on the palm and then use in on the face as the foam cleanses the skin.


The differences upon these three is the texture and added ingredients. Avocado is the riches, Happy Essential Foam is the freshest and gives most foam, while aloe vera is the lightest in foam and effects too.


The middle one is avocado, and the clear one is, of course, aloe vera, and the far left next to avocado (that is white creamy and similar in texture) is the Happy Essential Foam.


Here's my full review regarding the cleanser:

Happy Essential Foam,
suitable for normal skin type and almost anyone can use it. It cleanses daily debris and sebum. Perfect as a morning wash for the fresh clean feeling, especially when no makeup is used. The product is suitable when used as a double cleanser as a remover for the previous product (such as cleansing oil). It is a simple cleanser that foam easily and clean the skin with only the foam will make the skin bouncily happy and not dry.

Every Month Cleansing Foam
Very creamy and doesn't lather as much as Happy Essential Foam. Suitable to be used after removing makeup and help made the skin feel moister after the wash. It has this creamy and slightly oily feeling but not greasy, like pampering the skin while cleaning them, kinda unique in it's own way and definitely made for dry skin.

Aloe Vera,
the clear and gel like formula doesn't lather as much as the other. It cleanses the skin very gently and suitable for those who have sensitive skin. It calms the skin and doesn't irritate them in any way.
Light, in any way possible.

There you go, I hope I can try more or perhaps all of their cleanser, someday perhaps, someday.

Thank you Etude House Indonesia.

The Face Shop CC Cushion Intense Cover

Hello lovelies,

recently, I went into an event with Kawaii Beauty Japan for The Face Shop newest babies called CC Cushion Intense Cover and Ultra Moist. 2 of their items that comes in specific function, one for the coverage and the other for the moist effects.


The CC Cushion Intense Cover able to give ample coverage up to 25 hours while CC Cushion Ultra Moist made the skin stays hydrated for up to 25 hours as well. Both contain ultra tiny molecules of hyaluronic acids and 7 essential flowers formula that brighten the skin.

The event invited Angel from CherryBelle and Jessica Yamada as a guest speaker.

The event start on time and went on very smoothly. Everyone who happen to pass by can hear about the wonderful news shared by The Face Shop and even participate. Customer can purchase the product on the spot and trade in their old cushion to a new one as well.

Seems like everyone is having a great time.


The team from The Face Shop share the details regarding the product from the high coverage, brightening effects mentioned above and SPF 50+ PA+++, which is pretty high and remarkably good in protecting the skin against the sun on daily basis.


Both of them comes in two shades, V201 in Apricot Beige for fair skin and V203 in Natural Beige for natural skin tone that can be used for almost anyone.

They'll launch another shade for darker skin soon.

I'm opting for the lighter shade but received the natural tone on the press kit, afraid it will be too dark but when I'm using it at home, the tone is pretty much natural, it is not fair for sure but gives me a nice light healthy tan look.


The packaging and container all look similar, do read up to avoid being mixed up between the Ultra Moist and Intense Cover.


As seen below,

the shade is pretty much look similar too between the fair and natural, the V201 is a tad lighter than V203.

Cushion makeup is a big hit lately since it is easy to be used, gives better coverage, finish and result, usually comes for products under the name of BB, now The Face Shop has started a new revolution by giving CC Cream in a cushion.


A short sharing about how the guest speakers using the product and a fast makeup demo using the CC Cushion pretty much gives the audience on how they could gain benefits in using the product on daily basis.


It was advised to use the CC Cushion after a primer to gives the skin a better finish, finer looking skin and added coverage as well.


I really want to try the Ultra Moist since I think my dry skin would love it.


But the Intense Cover also pretty good and still gives my skin a light hydration effect even thou the key note is Intense Cover.

After the even and after receiving so many goodies from The Face Shop Indonesia, I'm planning to immediately use the CC Cushion.


The container looks luxurious and pretty, has a big round mirror, the sponge is in dark blue, easy to be used along with the cushion, and I can tap, swipe or use both motion when using the CC Cushion.


Even thou it comes in V203 and in natural shade, my skin skin does appear fairer when using the CC Cushion and the images here is without using any primer prior the CC Cushion. Still it gives the skin a good coverage.


Redness, spots, fine lines, large pores are all hidden under the CC Cushion and the feeling is still pretty much comfortable, like using none. Adding a few more products wont be a problem such as primer, concealer on a few parts and adding a fine loose powder in the end can give the skin a maximum coverage for a perfectly flawless finish that does last for the whole day.


Overall, it is another addition for my makeup box. The CC Cushion Intense Cover by The Face Shop is very easy to be used, lightweight and able to hide imperfection from medium to maximum coverage. The natural finish also convenient to be used on daily basis with a high protection against the sun harmful beam.

The packaging is pretty and the texture of the product itself is smooth and silky, which made the cushion a suitable base for all skin type.


Thank you so much The Face Shop Indonesia and Kawaii Beauty Japan.

COVERMARK Moisture Veil LX

Hello everyone,

last week I was invited by Kawaii Beauty Japan to attend an event with COVERMARK.

The brand COVERMARK itself is pretty famous around the world and not because they are focusing on medias and advertisement but on words of mouth where real customers using their products and loving it.

I've tried COVERMARK products since 5 or 6 years ago in Singapore and loving it, their texture, how it felt on the skin and efficacy is top notch. Now, here I am again, encountered with the same brand again, in Indonesia.


Before the presentation and trying on the highlighted product, there are some other things shared during the event. From the arrays of skincare to this item which I think is a 'must have' called Bright Cheek.


It is a highlights blush and radiance boost in one with this superb texture. It is so silky and smooth on the skin, I haven't try any product as smooth as this one and gives the skin that pearly lovely glow. I'm head over heals with Bright Cheek.


I'm also trying on their skincare from the lotion, serum and creams. They all feels good on the skin, light, fragrant and the moisture boost effect are visibly seen instantly.


I'm using the makeup collection since 5-6 years ago but not the skincare, now I'm so interested to try them as well.


After a while happily playing about the skincare and Bright Cheek, the presentation finally begun with a team from Japan. She explain a lot about the products and here are the details given about Moisture Veil LX.


What does it mean? It means that Moisture Veil LX is created a multi layered powder that help turn sebum into a part of the makeup where usually other makeup expel and event 'fight' against sebum, making the skin look dry or coagulated turning everything it touches become what we know as cakey. Dry patches, cracks and chunks of powders mixed with sebum for that far from silky smooth finish. Moisture Veil LX embrace the sebum as part as a human form and made something beautiful out of it, it's the kind of makeup that turns better and better by the hours.


This also becomes a key where Moisture Veil LX binds moisture and sebum during touch up. Most of us prefer loose powder as it clumps less, Moisture Veil LX even thou it is a compact powder, it is perfect for touch ups too. I've used it on several occasion and it works like wonder.


At first, I was using it on the event, after carefully selected my shade, which is MN 10. The full range is 9 shade from nudes to pinks and ochers.

I love their shades since it caters all Asian skin tones beautifully and still pays attention on the undertone.

For a fresher shade choose the pinks, for natural tones choose the nudes and for those with darker shade can use the ocher.


Formulated using COVERMARK's cutting-edge capsule technology, Moisture Veil LX enables flawless skin that becomes increasingly radiant over time. In just one minute, achieve a high-performance perfect complexion.

  1. Contains an all-new reformulation of COVERMARK's Moisture Coating Formula to hydrate and moisturise the skin, enabling a flawless finish.
  2. Contains Skin Melting Formulation to blend flawlessly with the skin and instantly cover imperfections upon application.
  3. Contains COVERMARK's exclusive formulas Sandwich Complex Powder and Moist Change Powder to absorb oil and achieve a lastingly radiant finish.
  4. Contains 7 herbal extracts to moisturise the skin: Panax ginseng, Ganoderma lucidum, Japanese Angelica, Coix Seed, Aloe, Mulberry Bark, Beech
  5. Prevents dark spots and freckles caused by UV rays. ( SPF32, PA+++ )

How to use

For areas with imperfections, dab powder on sponge bit by bit and pat onto the skin to avoid creating a heavy look. Do not dampen the sponge. This may cause the foundation’s surface to harden.

The box look luxurious with gold and printed details. Inside are the compact case and powder separately. So for sure, they also sell the refills.

The refill fill in nicely into the container but mine chipped a bid. There's a sponge provided and a huge mirror to my delight, who doesn't love a big mirror in their purse?!

I thought the sponge is standard, it is not, it is smooth and works well with the powder.


Most compact works well in damp condition, but as described in the website, no need to make the sponge damp, and use it as it is and it is perfect. It is perfect on its own.


Use it alone, on top of BB Cream, CC Cream, Liquid foundie, primer or just about anything, even sticky skincare. Layered it alone over and over again on problematic areas also help in terms of coverage. When used alone the powder provide light to medium coverage, use it with concealer, liquid foundation or cc and bb cream for a maximum coverage and it made everything looks light and effortless. I don't have major issues with my skin tone nor complexion but I do have a few things to hide from fine lines, minimizing laughing lines, those tiny freckles on the upper cheeks and of course, other spots and marks from the past.

COVERMARK Moisture Veil LX does it well, below is me using only skincare plus Moisture Veil LX without primer, cc nor bb cream, liquid foundation whatsoever and no loose powder as well. Moisture Veil LX as the only base and after around 6 hours of activity under the hot and humid air with no touch up whatsoever.


Thank you so much COVERMARK Moisture Veil LX for that lovely coverage, perfect lightweight finish with a remarkable ability to embrace the sebum and all the humidity Jakarta has to offer. My skin looks flawless and never naked even after long hours.


Indoor, outdoor, under the scorching sun or blinding flash lights the base becomes perfect as it is or after touch ups.

Cleansing wise, it is pretty hard, as the powder becomes 'so attached' to the skin and the fine particles really 'infused' on to the skin, do double or triple cleanse. Start from cleansing oil or COVERMARK cleansing milk, use a cotton and keep wiping it off until the cotton is white without powdery residue visible and then do a face wash thoroughly. Finally, to check everything is clean, use a toner with a cotton pad to check on whether there's a leftover.


one of my favorite compact powder of all time.

The Bath Box Lotion Bar Pure

Hello again,

Let's make this blog's front page filled with The Bath Box >.< haha!

The last product I'm going to review for now is Pure, a lotion bar called Pure by The Bath Box.


Super natural lotion, preservative free, rich in moisturized butters and oils to keep your skin well hydrated. It comes with a cute solid flower bar form and lightweigh, not greasy at all, and great for travelling.
Plain: Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Shea Butter, Vit E.
Lilac: Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Shea Butter, Fragrance, Vit E


And when I first received it, the solid bar doesn't want to come out from the tin, it is stuck and the only way I can use it is by picking them up little by little using a spoon. And those solid thingy will melt on the warmth of my palm and then I can spread it on my skin. It felt unique, body butter is rich by texture and on the skin, lotion is light, this one is somewhere in between, kinda like oil but firmer. It absorb nicely on the skin and not as greasy as I though it would be and I only using it on certain areas like knees and elbows plus heels when I 'm going to bed. It was slippery, but not so much.

The 'Pure' theme I think also refer to the non scented formula where 'none' is significantly smelled, and it provide a lotion like feeling but more like a dry oil in the end.

Personally, it would be great for traveling in terms of reducing liquid intake when no baggage is purchased and on board where it is drier and colder, but when your hands are freezing, it is not easy using the product as it need warmth to melt.

Overall, a product that need improvements, I would love it more if it comes with scent and not as slippery as it is right now as it made my skin 'glows'. Tips on tackling with it, is to use it on a very damp skin.

And since it contains no harmful chemicals, even kids can use it but I think it would be great for old people where their skin can be very dry and itchy.

The Bath Box Florida Dream

Hello all,

This is Florida Dram Body Lotion from The Bath Box. Perfect to be used after shower.


A soft emulsion, absorbs easly on your skin with delicate scent of honey, musk, and sweet orange. We’ve blended cocoa butter, almond oil, and aloe vera to soothe, soften, and nourish the skin. Moisturising with Florida Dream will leave your skin soft and sweet perfumed.
Ingredients: Water, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Citrus Sinensis Peel Oil, Fragrance, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate


Put in a tub like body butter but it is as liquid as any body lotion and I prefer it to be in a bottle since I still have to pour it upon usage. I think I read a customer also suggesting the same thing to The Bath Box on their instagram account but The Bath Box insist this is what they want. Hmm, I think the customer is right this time.

Apart from that, it is kinda like Florida Dream, sweet, alluring and like a teenage dream when everything is pink and pretty. The scent is surreal and lovely at the same time. The texture of the product is like a liquid light creamy gel and easily absorbed by the skin. Far from heavy, I think it is made for normal skin and not really for dry skin. So those with normal skin wont have to worry about getting the skin greasy, slippery and all like body butter or an un-absorbed lotion, this one is drank by the skin in a flash, slurrrppp!

There will be like white thingy when first applied and then after 2-3 swipes it'll disappear.

The scent doesn't really last the whole day, and on a dry skin like mine the hdyrating feeling also only last for a few mere hours but those who have normal skin will definitely enjoy it more.

And as usual, like any other product from The Bath Box, no known harmful chemicals inside.

The Bath Box Goats Don't Lie Bourbon

Hello lovelies,

The Bath Box is here and back to my blog posts. I've reviewed some of them before and now I'm trying their Goats Don't Lie Bourbon.


All natural goats milk liquid soap. Goats milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface and promotes smoother skin beneath. The natural fats from goats milk and vegetable oils are keeping your skin naturally moisturized. With geranium oil helps improve skin elasticity and tighten skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It also promotes blood circulation, helping to heal bruises, burns, cuts, dermatitis, eczema, and other skin conditions. Suitable for all skin types and all ages!
  • Our soaps are detergent-free, don’t have much bubbles. So if you need more bubbles, please use proper shower puff or use foaming bottle.
  • Keep out of eyes! If product gets into eyes, washed out with running water.
  • Our liquid soap is thin because we do not chemically thicken the liquid.
  • Allergy Warning: People with skin allergies should test the soap on a small spot of skin first and stop using if irritation occurs. Even this is natural soap with no chemicals, there are some people also allergy with natural ingredients.
Water, Organic Goats Milk, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Elaeis Guineensis Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil


Definitely one of the gentlest liquid soaps I've tried and really doesn't make a lot of bubbles but the clean feeling after wash is there. The uniqueness of Bourbon is the scent, a bit like cooling minty, a bit like spices here and there and a touch of sweetness from the fruits and like a precious bourbon. We love it, the whole house love this unique scent.

And the effect for the skin? Definitely not drying but not really able to cure my super dry skin.

Aside from that, I love the fact that I can let the whole family use the shower gel since it contain no harmful chemicals.



A great start for those who loves their skin and want to take care their skin without known dangerous ingredients. Clean the skin without striping them off their natural moisture.

Start from cleansing and let's go to my next post about pampering with the lotions, also with The Bath Box.

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum

Hello lovelies,

it's time for one of the best serum I've tried, like it's name, it is smart, custom-repair, yet it tackles so many problems according to your skin's needs.

i don't know about you, but there are times where I don't know which problems I have to deal first, is it the spots, lines or loss of firmness or even uneven skin tone, now, a serum that help me 'erase' all of those problems.


Our smart serum understands the particular needs of your skin, providing custom repair for the damage you see and the damage you don't. For all ages, all ethnicities.

Targets multiple concerns, including:

  • Diminishing lines and wrinkles
  • Firming and lifting skin
  • Reducing dark spots and evening skin tone
  • Improving radiance and texture


All the necessary details are provided at the box, and there's also a pamphlet inside the box, plus you could always check out their website for a video and more information.


Above are the list of ingredients, there's really a lot isn't it?!

When I first got the product, the thing that comes into my mind is that, "wow, this is exactly what I need" and all in one solution so I don't have to use multiple serum, or use one serum at a time and then change on another time for another issue. This could be my all at once solution, but still, I do have some doubts as can a serum be that good, would it be too rich or too much?


First, let's start with the container, it look sleek and sophisticate-ly smart in this clear with metal inner tube and details in black. The pump is always an excellent choice for a skincare since it helps in terms of being hygienic and practicality.

Two pumps is around this much and this is what the serum looks like. Slightly gooey, like a gel, but in this milky dark yellowish tone, and surprisingly very comfortable when used.


Apply it on clean skin after cleansing and toning, spread evenly using a light massaging movement upwards direction and the first thing I felt is a firming action when the gels are melting onto the skin. I enjoy the feeling when using the serum, like a thin film that covering the whole skin, creating magic.


After the serum, I proceed with a moisturizer that provide mainly moisture from the Clinique family as well, dramatically different moisturizing lotion + for very dry to dry combination skin. And they works well together. The serum provided everything else that I need aside from the moisturizer and the moisturizer provide moisture, for me it's a match.

I love how my skin become firmer, more radiant, less problems from the agings dilemma like dark spots, uneven skin tone and lines. The effects are not dramatics but on weekly basis and the skin will keep on improving from week to week.


Overall, one of my favorite serum in terms of texture and efficacy, and definitely one of the smartest serum I've used since it tackles so many problems at once and I do recommend it for anyone above 30 or perhaps when you see many things wants to be fixed altogether without wasting your time.

When used, I don't experience any allergic reaction, redness, nor any discomfort. The serum also works well with moisturizers and doesn't leave a sticky nor greasy end.

Thank you Clinique Indonesia.
