Super Cheap Japan is an ultimate guide or If i should say your personal travel guide to help you knowing about travelling around Japan inside out best in budget especially for a first timer.  The book is also very informative to get know more Japan's most favorite tourist destinations  like Tokyo , Osaka , Nara ,Kyoto , Hiroshima and other surrounding areas you won't missed in details. Let's say , Tokyo is not merely about Shibuya for shopping ,yet there's so much more hidden gems/ anti mainstream area worth visit like Shimokitazawa/Koenji that I , myself truly recommend.

As the name,the book provides the littlest details like where you can enjoy popular meal's around certain area with just few dollars,how to do a tax free shopping,cheap supermarkets nearby,cheap and trusted accommodation to stay, best time to visit seasonal attractions with low cost.It is also contain Basic Japanese essential phrases for daily conversation that will be useful when you are asking for direction, bargaining, introduce yourself to local,etc.

The book is also easy to read and understandable with simple language and clear pictures and even area map.I'm glad there's a book like this that concern about budget, so that there's no more stereotype saying that travelling is not always waste of money but more about of self discovery and love for the world and others as well.

menard skincare tsukika review
There's new change in my make up routine. I always planned to have my skincare routine products are in one same series and  brand. yet, would it be possible If I haven't pick one? It took me more than 3 years to finally settle and starting on this month, it's Menard Japan Tsukika skincare series.
It's all begin with the Tsukika Cleansing cream sample that I received few months ago from Sociolla, and I actually feel like falling in love with the products already and decided to go with its milk lotion  too. For Now, I only own these two yet,I'll add the rest when I am done with my old skincares series.
menard skincare cleansing cream milk lotion review
 So let's look more about my first impression review of 
Menard 's Tsukika Cleansing Cream and Milk Lotion !
menard skincare tsukika cleansing cream review
made in Japan
price : around IDR 315.000
Tsukika series is enroched with ingredients from Selenicereus flower extracts.It gives moist,retaining effect to skin which is usually exposed by the UV Rays and dryness and prevents first aging signs. Tsukika line is also applies for any skin type but especially dry skin type.
The Cleansing Cream is used before washing cream as the first step of the daily routine to remove (even ,waterproof based) make up dirt. To use , simply put the cream into our face and slowly rub with fingers till it became oily, then swipes with facial cotton.You'll see how amazing it is leaving your skin feels all dewy and clean. Finish by rinse with lukewarm water and then you are ready to put the second step aka washing cream as usual.
menard skincare milk lotion review
made in Japan
price : around IDR 370.000
Milk lotion is the same with emulsion in term of function. The lotion itself smell so good and gentle and the consistency is neither runny or too creamy yet perfect just like a milk. I like to use two pea -sized to moist my face after lotion/toner. This milk lotion  function is to prevents skin from dehydration ,external aggression and regulates skin metabolism.  It left my skin bouncy and glowing all day long! The only thing I dislike is the packaging... I prefer it comes up with pump model instead not a merely bottle like this which is not so travel-friendly.

Being hooked with these two product, I am also very thankful for the thoughtfulness of  Menard's Beauty Advisor . She generously gave me 3 kinds of mini samples  of Menard's Tsukika Washing Cream, Tsukika Cream and Tsukika Lotion Moist to try. Now that I've tried 3 of them, I am more sure to continue my love for Menard Tsukika series as my main skincare series and moreover, because of this changes i can feel that my skin condition is getting better and bright each a day. I'll update this review after I bought the complete, normal size of  Tsukika series :)

sociollabox unboxing
Seperti biasa, waktunya sociolla box unboxing of the month. Bulan Agustus ini isinya mostly skincare dan beberapa brand di dalamnya sudah pasti cukup sering kalian dengar. Jujur saja untuk beberapa produk aku belum cobain dan belum bisa kasih impression karena beberapa alasan tertentu dan lebih lagi, box ini pun datengnya baru beberapa hari yang lalu .Well, gimanapun juga kau harap post ini membantu buat dapat pencerahan soal kesan ku mengenai sociolla box, kalau kalian tertarik buat tahu lebih lanjut atau berlangganan , bisa langsung cek web SOCIOLLA ya !


sociolla box august unboxing
let's start !

bio essence exfoliating gel
Bio Essence ini, pertama kali tahu produknya yang v-shape liner dan aku cocok -cocok saja pakainya dan ngga break out  . Produk ini belum aku coba tapi di descriptionnya dijanjikan kalau exfoliating gel yang mengandung royal jelly ini biasa mengontrol produksi minyak berlebih di wajah sehingga kulit lebih mulus.
sociolla nuxe nuxellence moisture cream
Moisturizer bertesktur krim ini mengandung bahan alami anti inflamasi seperti aloe vera yang membantu mencerahkan tone kulit, salicornia, almond dan orange flower yang menutrisi dan menenangkan kulit akibat iritasi karena non comedogenic dan tak mengandung paraben. Sewaktu kucoba, yang pertama kali paling bikin notice adalah baunya, yap . rasanya bau medical banget ! dan konsistensi tekstur krimnya agak terlalu padat sehingga lengket tapi kulit langsung berasa lembab dan kenyal.Menurutku produk ini terbilang cukup oke dan bisa saja lebih baik kalau mau meng- improve desain packaging nya, bau / scent yang kuat dan tentunya, harganya lol.
sarange phyto series sample
Rangkaian sample set skincare dari Sarange Whitening Phyto Series : Toner, Essence, Emulsion, Krim Pelembab dan Serum Mata. Sebenarnya aku tertarik untuk mecoba produk ini tapiii.. aku berusaha tidak mencoba produk yang mengandung semua jenis whitening. Ini sih berdasarkan preferensi penggunaan ku sendiri ya. Tapi,dari yang tertera tertulis kalau produk ini bisa mencerahkan , memutihkan kulit secara natural dengan pemakaian teratur  
Ini pertama kalinya aku dengar brand satu ini yang ternyata made in Turkey. Satu hal yang patut di highlight adalah jarang-jarang ada hand and body cream non paraben dan hal ini membuat buyer sepertiku yang selektif akan ingedients merasar tertarik.Produk ini kaya nutrisi dan mengandung vitamin A, E dan K untuk menjaga keremajaan kulit dan mentralisir radikal bebas pemicu kekeringan dan penuaan dini. Sewaktu diaplikasikan , krim nya gampang meresap ke tubuh dan tidak lengket,baunya harum seperti olive oil. Such a nice one! 

At the end, meskipun isi nya kebanyakan sample set, it's such a pleasure for me to receive this august box , thanks again, Sociolla , I hope next month box will be more about make up, ya 😁

review jill stuart airy water cc cream
After a while without beauty review, i'm back with one ! This time is a cc cream from Jill Stuart Beauty Japan. I always wanted to own one product from this brand and not just seeing it from Japanese Magazine and this year I finally purchased my first Jill Stuart Beauty 😁
Honestly I could not decide what would be my first haul , is it lips product, cheeks, eye make or ... In the end, I decided to go with base make up ; it is an Airy Tint Watery CC Cream because it will be last for long time and a good base is the foremost , important thing on make up right?

SPF 30 /  PA+++ , no. 01 Light Floral Beige

price : ¥ 3200 
review jill stuart cosmetic cc cream
The packaging design and details is such like no other. Always Sweet yet Luxurious !
review jill stuart beauty cc cream
Jill Stuart Airy Tint Watery CC Cream is a type of base to moisturizing skin before make up consist of cherry blossom, rosemary ,primrose extract, hyaluronic acid and even pink pearl powder for pure illuminate effect. It has a light , watery texture that refresh your skin at a time.
review jill stuart airy water cc cream usage
My face feel all fresh, bright and ready for make up . I also totally love the scent which is light floral scent. For the outcome,It couldn't cover blemishes , that much since it's a type of watery cream with sheer effect. Color correcting power is probably just 7 out of 10 . Yet , it does cover large pores well and would even better if you topped a compact powder foundation that has medium coverage over it for better result.

Therefore, I think this CC Cream works well and suited for those who has (almost) good skin condition already means someone without major skin problem . I wore it for about 7 hours outside during my trip to Beijing last month and the weather was totally crazy hot yet I didn't find it make my make up cakey nor dry out my skin when i got back at the hotel. It is currently my go-to base make up for traveling or simple look for daily
review jill stuart japan beauty review
Aside the CC Cream, I also got two mini samples of Jill Stuart Lasting Tone Up Base in 01 - pure and Everlasting Silk Powder Foundation Crystal Perfection. Tone Up Base is a water base moisturizer for brighten skin and smooth finish that lasts while Silk Powder Foundation Crystal is for translucent and lustrous finish.  So.. my order for base make up goes with : Tone Up Base - CC Cream - Silk Powder Foundation. And as expected, maybe because they all in one brand , my base make up look more flawless. There's a sensation that you'll know when you try them, It feels like I'm wearing light make up yet it stays all day and it boost confident for sure πŸ’•
review jill stuart beauty
My overall thoughts : I feel like aside for being a high end make up product, the quality of Jill Stuart Beauty is truly worth the price. I'll continue to stick with this brand and maybe add some of their different range of beauty product to my collection in the future.
