This is my go to product to deal with acne marks. As you can see I’m almost on the bottom of this one Left on it's own, my marks can last for months, but with this, it’s faded in a matter of weeks. The concentration of the vitamin C itself is only 5% which might seem unpromising, but It’s the perfect concentration to be effective without sensitizing to the skin. Funnily, the top ingredients in this product are similar to Mineral Botanica Acne Care Serum: Water, Propylene Glycol, and Ascorbic Acid (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid in Mineral Botanica, both are vitamin C derivative). But while the rest of ingredients in Mineral Botanica have hydration purposes, this one is packed with various fruit extracts as antioxidant. I use it directly after toner by taping three to four drops all over my face. However, you have to ALWAYS make sure to keep this away from sunlight because it can easily turn yellow and lost it’s potency. Overall, I this product!!! ------------------------------------
Ini sih produk andalan untuk ngilangin bekas jerawat. Tuh, liat kan... udah hampir abis Kalau dibiarin aja, bekas jerawatku bisa nggak hilang sampai berbulan-bulan, tapi dengan produk ini beberapa minggu aja udah memudar. Konsentrasi vitamin C nya sendiri cuma 5%, kayaknya nggak menjanjikan ya... tapi 5% itu perfect buat bikin vitamin C nya efektif tanpa bikin kulit jadi sensitif. Lucunya... bahan utama dari produk ini ternyata sama kayak Mineral Botanica Acne Serum: Air, Propylene Glycol, dan Ascorbic Acid (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid di Mineral Botanica, dua-duanya turunan vitamin C). Tapi kalo bahan-bahan lain di Mineral Botanica lebih untuk melembabkan, produk ini punya banyak kandungan ekstrak buah-buahan untuk antioksidan. Aku biasanya pake ini langsung setelah toner meresap, caranya tetesin 3-4 tetes, lalu ditepuk-tepuk ke seluruh wajah. Tapi, ada saran nih: SELALU simpan serum ini di tempat yang sejuk dan jauh dari matahari, karena kalo nggak dia bisa berubah jd kuning & efeknya berkurang. Pokoknya aku produk ini dan aku rekomen bgt buat yang mau nyoba serum vitamin C.
Product Name : COSRX Oil-free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap
Believe it or not, there were times when I think moisturizer is not necessary (I know it’s stupid, so hold your judgements please :’). I learned it the hard way when one day I realize my skin feels sooo dry and I found dry patches all over my skin (which never happenned on my normal to oily skin). I later figured that the only moisturizing product I use is my COSRX Advanced 96 Snail Mucin (reviews coming up!) and the rest are my acne-fighting products. Of course it's not hydrating enough! Then I see this reviewed by @gothamista (well COSRX and Renée’s judgement are two things i trust the most on skincare) so I purchased this right away. Once I put it on my face, I fell in love. The texture is so light, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. The hydration lasts all day, and my skin feels so bouncy and soft afterwards I’m not even kidding. The second day I use this, my dry patches are gone. So a bit of advice, don’t make the same mistake I made. Go get this one and moisturize!
Percaya nggak percaya, aku sempet mikir kalo moisturizer itu nggak terlalu penting (hehe, jangan dijudge please). Baru deh aku kena batunya waktu tiba-tiba kulit berasa kering dan ngelupas (sama sekali nggak pernah kejadian sebelumnya di kulit aku yang normal-berminyak). Setelah itu aku baru sadar kalo satu-satunya produk yang melembabkan yang lagi aku pakai itu COSRX Advanced 96 Snail Mucin (review menyusul ya...) sisanya produk anti jerawat semua. Jelas aja nggak cukup! Setelah itu aku ngeliat produk ini di review @gothamista (pokoknya COSRX sama reviewnya Renée itu dua hal yang paling aku percaya deh kalo berkaitan sama skincare) jadi langsung deh aku beli. Begitu ku coba pake, aku langsung jatuh cinta... duh dasar ya emang COSRX. Teksturnya ringan, nyerapnya cepet, dan lembabnya itu berasa seharian, udah gitu kulit jadi berasa lebih kenyal dan halus setelah pake ini. Hari ke-dua setelah pake ini, kulit ngelupasnya langsung pada hilang dong... Jadi ya, ini nasehat sedikit buat kalian, jengan bikin kesalahan yang sama kayak aku... Beli aja moisturizer ini dan SELALU biasain pakai pelembab!

But @jordansamuelskin can you spot the difference?! My over worked brother carefully packed the items separately for his flight...so separate that he forgot the Balm cleanser He got a picture message from his wife as he boarded his flight saying 'forgot something?' And there it was just sitting there back home
I didn't know this until yesterday. Apparently, He didn't dare tell me for fear of what might happen to him
So after all the excitement I shall have to wait that bit longer to try it.
In other news I've had a few spritzs of the mist and OMFG that scent is just divine and unique and beautiful #jordansamuelskin#skincarecommunity#teamjs

All of us probably had that experience when you go to bed with clear skin and then next morning you wake up to a giant zit. I definitely did! And here is what I do:
I do darsonvalization: I use a home high frequency device (named after Jacques-Arsène d'Arsonval, the inventor). I have found this device astonishingly effective when it comes to shrinking zits. NO JOKE! After 30 sec of using it, a pimple gets smaller and less inflamed. And if it’s of interest to you: the device sends high electrical current frequencies that kill bacteria and stimulate skin cells.
My other super powerful weapon is @malinandgoetz Overnight Acne Treatment. Sulfur & Salicylic Acid dry the blemish, while Camphor & Zinc help to heal. Normally, it takes me only 2 days to heal blemishes and 2-3 more to clear #acne #acnetreatment #skincare #skincareblog #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #cultbeauty
I got them both as a bonus gift, I was so excited to try them both since I heard a lot of good things about it
Innisfree Orchid Sleeping Pack
The meticulously extracted active ingredient from Jeju orchid delivers exceptional sleekness to your thirsty skin with its outstanding antioxidant effects. This powerful anti-aging sleeping mask, formulated with the vitality of Jeju orchid, nourishes skin while you are asleep for the resilient and smooth skin.
This thing is one of my favorite overnight masks, the consistency is pretty similar to the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, the smell of this sleeping pack is like the orchid cream which has flowery scent to it.
I use this sleeping pack every night since at night, I tend to have pretty dry skin around my mouth, jawline & forehead.
This sleeping pack really moisturizes my skin, when you apply it it gives you a dewy looking skin.
Note that this sleeping pack may be a little heavy for my oily, oily combination friends, so you might want not want to apply too much of it.
Every time I use this sleeping pack, the next morning my skin feels plump and hydrated. I'll give it a 4.2/5
Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Pack
A sleeping pack containing eco-friendly Jeju fresh green tea to keep the skin moisturized and clear.
This sleeping pack's consistency is like a gel type with little beads in them. I'm not a really big fan of this sleeping pack since this isn't hydrating and moisturizing enough for me. This mask has a pretty strong smell to it, smells like the usual Innisfree's green tea line. This mask gives you a lightweight moisture to your skin so, if you have dry skin I don't recommend to get this one but the Orchid ones. This sleeping pack absorbs quickly, and it doesn't give you a layer to it like the orchid ones. My skin feels tight with this since it's a lightweight so I usually layer 5-6 times. I'll give it a 3/5 .
: Body Lotions #abnewyearstashchallenge Look, an Asian Beauty product! I neglect my poor body but am trying to get better at at least moisturising it.
Paula’s Choice Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA. Improves texture, smooths and softens, improves appearance of hard, clogged, red bumps. Smells kinda odd, nice creamy texture. I got this and the BHA to see which would be better at dealing with ingrown hairs from shaving/wearing double layers on my legs throughout winter. It’s close but I think the BHA has it.
Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Body Oil. This is sooo nice. Comes with a good pump, smells nice (to me, kinda herby), really sorts out my dry skin. It sinks in super fast and isn’t greasy or sticky. Sliiightly thinner than I prefer, just cause it runs through my fingers which makes me feel gross. Would repurchase.
Paula’s Choice Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA. Refines rough skin, antioxidants, ideal for hard clogged pores. Like I said above, this is slightly more effective than the AHA (I tested one on each leg for a bit). Bit thinner, almost runny, smells weird but that dissipates. Would maybe repurchase, but it’s expensive for a body moisturiser IMO (€30 plus shipping).
