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 add another series that is a milk lotion . For Now, I only own these two yet,I'll add the rest when I am done with my old skincares series.

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.

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 lefts 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
made in Japan
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.

EXPLORING YOKOHAMA IN A DAY : Minato Mirai & Red Brick Warehouse // ζ¨ͺ桜 みγͺとみらい21

travel to YOKOHAMA in a day
What's so special about Yokohama? I asked this few time to myself before my last spring trip to Japan. Honestly i was kind of hesitated of visiting this neighbor city of Tokyo, as one of my Japanese friend who's living there said there'll be not much to see. Yet, in matter of fact ,I have a day left to explore around beside Tokyo itself before going back to my hometown. I was wondering whether it is really worth to spend a day in this capital of Kanagawa prefecture or should I opt for another city.

Until..I realized ..hey,it's only costs around 300 yen for a one way by train from my current hotel at Omori,Tokyo to Yokohama ( just 1 station away) . There's nothing wrong to take a peek this port city, anyway. One thing for sure, here's where you can get some of western vibes in Japan and get some fresh air aside of hustle and bustle Tokyo and I'm glad for not miss the chance.
 YOKOHAMA in a day
First things to do step out the train, I headed straight to MINATO MIRAI γΏγͺとみらい21 minato mirai nijuichii area. It's an urban ,central business district in heart of Yokohama.If you're a fans of Japanese dorama, you'll be familiar seeing of some of the iconic city buildings here.Let's get to know one by one :
travel to YOKOHAMA
This is the no.1 iconic tower in Yokohama with 296 m high . It is truly magnificent as the structure of the building shows. It is also known as tallest habitable building in Japan and also a place where you can enjoy  one stop shopping, fine dining,  attending events or even take beautiful pictures of city view on observatory deck.
intercontinental YOKOHAMA
Luxurious hotel with most unique shape like no other hotel here.. inspired by the white yatch under the sail,  representing Yokohama as the port city,that's why.
yokohama cup noodle museum
An educational museum for children to learn more about cup noodle in the making, history and even made your own cup noodle -diy. I'm not that into cup noodle that much so I decided to not going inside  therefore I can't say much about what's inside.
cosmoworld yokohama
ootd explore yokohama
Cosmoworld is an amusement park in the center of Yokohama and famous for its giant Ferris wheel with digital clock. I was planning to go inside and even ride the Ferris wheel yet because of the weather that day was kind of windy and rainy,I decided not to and just casually take a picture of it.I doubt i'll enjoy the ride if the rain suddenly strikes back lol.
travel to yokohama and shopping
world porters yokohama
This is the a place where I spend my times the most all day lol, a large shopping mall, haha ! World Porters is a well known place to get all the trendiest fashion in Yokohama and shop for some good stuff.  I had my lunch here at the food court where serves many delicious Japanese, Italian and even Korean cuisine with such reasonable price.
yokohama trip
Outside the shopping mall, there's a park and promenade connecting to cosmoworld and yokohama landmark tower. Here's also a best spot to take a minatomirai as background as i didn't have too walk to far too much to get the whole picture. It is also refreshing to take some rest at this park and just enjoy the beautiful view.

Moving on from World Porters,with the help from some locals, I made a visit to another famous building in Yokohama that is just few minutes away walking. It is called Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse. My tips, if you ask for some local help :  always bring a map or at least show a google map in japanese , never ask in english because they are never know where it is although it's very near lol. They don't understand what is red brick warehouse but they know it when i said aka-renga soko 😁
explore yokohama city minato mirai
Once was a government bonded warehouse during Meiji and Taisho era, Now is a place where you can shop for some Yokohama artisan goods ,distinctive local souvenirs, and even enjoy dining at cafe / restaurant.

ζ¨ͺζ΅œθ΅€γƒ¬γƒ³γ‚¬ε€‰εΊ« japan
Literally lost in translation... You gotta taste the anti-mainstream,feels of usual Japan here πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
traveling to yokohama japan
Till next time, Red Brick Ware House

In the end of the day, I was grateful enough to finally step out of Tokyo and made a visit of Yokohama . Both city have its own charms but If I have to pick , Yokohama is a place for where you can take a leisurely stroll.Having quiet neighborhood, it's a more preferable city to live in rather than busy and complex Tokyo. In a short, I choose Yokohama for weekdays and Tokyo for weekend 😊

I will blog more and maybe make a video of my recent Japan 2017 Trip soon <3
