☆Review : Etude House Silk Scarf Moist Hair Mist☆

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
Hope you have a wonderful one! :)

This is a hair product review for 
Etude House Silk Scarf Moist Hair Mist 

120 ml ( 4.06 fl, oz. )

 As what it says, it's a mist. and the dispense is a type of spritz like so :

Product description :
Specially formulated with oil complex and floral scents, this weightless mist enhances shine and boosts hair's health, while providing vital nutrients.

[Directions] : Shake well and mist evenly over towel dried or dry hair. Massage onto scalp, and comb though the ends. Do not rinse. Style as usual.

[Caution] : For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue use it signs of irritation and/or rash appear.

[Ingredients] : Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Alcohol, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Propylene Glycol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Disodium Edta, Cetrimonium Chloride, Steartrimonium Chloride, Amodimethicone, Isopropyl Alcohol, Trideceth-12, PEG-14M, PEG-20 Glyceryl Trisostearate, PEG-32, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance.


I think it's a unique product. and unlike any other hair care that I have tried. 
It was also come in handy, easily spray it to the hair.

☆ The Packaging ☆
This is where I begin the love & hate relationship with cute Etude House product. Usually, I would find some of them were made from a cheap material and got easily broke! >,<" But, gladly I'd say for this, it is from a heavy weight sturdy plastic bottle. Good thing, because it's a liquid inside. You don't want it to be spilled all over the place when there's a high chance to be easily broke, right? BUT. to be concern, it could be a burdensome if you wanna carry it in your purse.

☆ The Texture ☆
The texture is pretty light, non greasy or sticky feeling at all. *huge plus thing*

 There's a hint of milky white color in there, but it will be absorbed as translucent.

And the smell is really nice too, sort of a soapy floral fragrance scents to me! And I like it. Could freshen up your mood as well :P

☆ The Result ☆ 
I always spray this when my hair is dry, or after I blow dried my hair. My hair feels instantly smooth and comb nicely. Also could tame the frizzy lion hair that I got! 
But, I would say it's not gonna be a long lasting result ( to change the texture of my dried and frizzy hair in the future ), but this thing help if you wanna get an instant smooth hair ( and smelly nice hair! ) in a minute. The scents also surprisingly last quite long too in my hair! >> up to 6 hours indoor activity.

If you wonder, the finish of this to hair is quite natural. a healthy-smooth glow hair, not a glossy-wet looking finish that what I might imagine at first. lol. so.. *thumbs up*

For now, I love this! and it's affordable too. ( bought online at Indonesian multiply market for around IDR. 60000 rupiahs or 6 bucks! ) 

well.. I'm a budget conscious when it comes to beauty products, why would you spend so much money if you happy with what you got at such a cheap price? :P hehe.. k. enough for me rambling. 
Hope you find this post helpful though!



That's it my review.
Let me know what you think!
Good day all!
Smile :)

NOTE: all of the product were purchased by my own money and reviewed by honest thought. It's just my way to give you an opinion in buying product that you considered to purchase. Be a smart buyer! Hope you like my reviews.

☆Event : Skin Aqua Beauty Talkshow☆

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
Hope you're feeling gorgeous,
 because you are! :D

This is a post about an event that I attended couple days ago.
Skin Aqua was kindly enough for inviting me to their Beauty Talkshow and concern us about how important for putting on a sunscreen to our skin!
Not just to me or other beauty bloggers that attended to the event that day, but I need to pass on the message to all of you too! :)

Located at Tartine Restaurant ( fx Sudirman ), 3 speakers that day are :

** FAQ ( Frequently Asked Question ) **

What makes Skin Aqua different from other brand?
  • As UV Protection and skincare in one ( moisturize, soften and keep skin's elasticity )
  • Water based, feels lightweight on the skin
  • Non greasy and absorbed quickly
  • Can be used as daily moisturizer and makeup base

What's the difference between sunblock and sunscreen?
Well, sunblock has a thicker consistency and a waterproof formula. It tend to be greasy and heavy on the skin. Most of the time, it is used on special activities like going to the beach and swimming. While sunscreen was made for daily use and feels lightweight on the skin.

What's the difference between UVA and UVB light?
UVA >> long wavelength range
UVB >> short wavelength range 

 picture & info taken from -> here!
UVA, which penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB, has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging). UVA also can breakthrough a glass, our skin tissues and blood vessels!
UVB, the chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn, tends to damage the skin's more superficial epidermal layers. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer and a contributory role in tanning and photoaging.

Protect yourself from UV radiation, both indoors and out. Always seek the shade outdoors, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM. And since UVA penetrates glass, consider adding flat, tinted UV-protective film to your car's side and rear windows as well as to house and business windows. This film blocks up to 99.9 percent of UV radiation and lets in up to 80 percent of visible light.
And for maximum protection from sun damage that Skin Aqua recommend is to re-apply in every 3-4 hours of usage.

☆Skin Check☆
And then.. I got a  chance to do a Skin Check in that event. 
They provide us a technology to see through the layer of our skin - aka. ZOOMING IN straight to our disgrace >,<" - and point out the skin problems that we have. I was sooo hesitant to doing this at first, *beuh. better I won't find out than being stressed out for the rest of my life, right? and they will also find out this is only the magic of concealer?! oh nooo! lol.
but I'm glad I finally did it because.. yeah -_-"  SO.. here you go.. *pasrah* lol.
all the freckles look alike are apparently my sun spots.
I think I always protect my skin, but I guess this is also a warning for me to be more self conscious to the UV damage to my skin.
 this is when they zoom in my pores.
the green circle is an enlarge pores that I have ( still in a "warn" sign ), but the red circle means my pores is too wide open >,<"

this is the active blemishes on my right cheek.
*yeah. It's called PMS, guys -_-" 


So, what are you waiting for? 
Don't forget to put on sunscreen and stay beautiful when you're old! :D



  TO ADD : Through that event, PT. Rohto Laboratories Indonesia also introduce us their new products, called Lip on Lip. In this line they have 2 types of lipcare which is : Nourishing Lipstick and Nourishing Lipbalm.

( I'll just swatch and review them in different post ya! :D )



And here are the goodie bags that I received that day! :D

This is the second bag that I received ( as a gift ) because I answer one of their question on a trivia games ^^
Oh I'm so happy because they throw in some Face on Face products that I'm dieing to try! :D 

" All of those items will be on the list that I'm going to review.
Keep up with my blog, dear!

Once again, thanks to Skin Aqua for inviting me and give such a useful knowledge to us!

one big happy family




Ok. That's it my report.

Good day all!

☆Review + Comparison : Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Healthy Natural Concealer☆

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
I hope you stay fit and happy ya! :)

This next concealer is up on my review, and maybe this is one of my most used concealer before I found my new "BFF" :P >> NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Wand.
Still liking it. Still using it, until I finish it. But overall, here's my thought and comparison to my new favorite one.

Once this product appeared on my previous post and made a first impression with it.
make sure you check the link below first :)
A Mini Haul From Maybellline : Mascara, Concealer & Lipstick ♥ 

Clear Smooth Minerals Healthy Natural Concealer in Medium-Sand

In fact, I almost gone through a tube with this :D

☆ The Wand ☆

compare to NYX HD Concealer :

Maybelline is slightly more slanted than NYX.
It means Maybelline grabs more product and easily cover ( or spread product ) to larger area on the face.
While NYX is more spot on and grabs a little less product.


As you can see, Maybelline is little more pink than NYX when first swatched it.

When both are wet. 
The texture to compare are : NYX is more thicker and rich, while Maybelline is slightly thinner and lightweight.

That's why, Maybelline is easier to spread and blend.

Half wet.
Both almost have the same time to dry and set to the skin.

Here, you can see the colors are preettyy similar when they dry.

Almost have the same color pay off!

☆ The Coverage ☆

PS : Oh ya, have you read why I got this bad skin? One of famous skincare line from Japan doesn't suit me and breaks me out! see my review -->  Review : Hada Labo Indonesia


  no primer. no base. under indoor artificial lighting


As you can see, it does also a pretty GREAT job as covering my scars!!

In terms of comparison :

Maybelline Mineral vs NYX HD ☆

Both have the same price range..
Both have a great result in pictures..
Both have the similar color pay off..
But, in terms of texture >> Maybelline feels more lightweight and thinner than NYX. While NYX is thicker, it also conceal and stick better, covering even longer than Maybelline.

Do I find Maybelline Mineral Concealer is good? Off course! but, in my humble opinion and as what I need, I would say NYX is a little bit better. I need a thicker and more concealing concealer ( *the thicker, the better! ) to my Goddamn horrified skin lately -___-"

I don't know about both being said waterproof or not, but after I showered *because NYX sticks better in the skin, it survive graciously. Fade a bit, but hey. still stood there like a boss! :P >> ( read : NYX less faded than Maybelline ).

If I had to say the negative and what bothers me about both of the product >> They run pretty FAST! Yeah, I need them a lot dearly much ( as you know ) so it's right there got through me.



Ok then. That's it my review.
I hope somewhat it's useful for you.
Let me know what you think!
Good day all!
Smile :)
