Body Shop Honeymania Body Lotion and Lip Balm

Okay, I'm a huge fan of Body shop products especially the body lotions they have. The honeymania is  new (maybe to me haha) and first I heard about it, I wasn't really sure about trying this because I'm already in love with the chocomania one (you can tell I love chocolate). 

Short story, my friend has introduced me to this. We were on vacation and I ran out of my soap, so she let me use hers, and I was surprised that it smelled really good and did linger on my skin. So, I went to body shop store and bought the body lotion and lip balm. I didnt buy the whole range because I wasn't really sure if I'm gonna really like it. Okay, onto the products.

I love lip balms, and I always find myself trying new ones. I bought this honey mania lip balm and it stayed in my bag since I bought it. It moisturize and hydrate your lips. What I love the most is the scent of it, oh so good. It even tastes a bit like honey.

The body butter has the heaviest and longest lasting scent. The scent is floral with some sweetness in it because of honey. This body butter has a thick consistency but it easily melts once you start rubbing it into your skin. It does a good job at moisturizing your skin and doesn't leave you feeling greasy. Personally, I love this so much, this gives you a nice glow to your skin, I think you should give this a try, because I have nothing to say bad about it. I just love it.

So far, I love this product range so much, I think I should buy another honeymania products. Have you tried it? What do you think of this?

Skincare Routine

Hi guys, I really want to talk about my face routine right now. I've been using so many products and also going to clinics.

I watched many skincare videos and bought some of products were mentioned on the videos the most. I bought the products, but it didn't do the job. Then, my dad told me that I need to go to skincare clinic and get a treatment. So I went to Permata Clinic with my dad, he was about to get the hair treatment while I get my first skin treatment. I was so in love with the products, it did the job well, my skin looked brighter and really nice. But the price is really expensive for the whole package. After 3 months treatment, I decided to stop and I started to try a new clinic (i shouldn't mention the name). At first month, it did the job but after two months, my face started to breakout again, well I decided to try this because my two bestfriends recommended this to me and their skin look flawless. And after that I decided to stop and started using products from "Carefour" and still didn't work. 

So, after I went back from my Europe trip with my family, I had a terrible breakouts and acne, you know girls never like acne on their face, right? I decided to go back to Permata Clinic to get my treatment again. Oh btw, this clinic always crowded especially on the weekends, so better go on the weekdays. At first, you will meet the doctor and he will start to analyse your face by touching it. It only takes like 5 minutes, he will send you to get the treatment on the 4th floor (on wolter mongisidi), sometimes if I had very serious acne problem, he will tell me to get facial treatment before lasering and oxygen treatment. But this time, I just get an oxygen treatment which only takes 10-15 minutes.
After I got treatment, they gave me a bunch of products (you will get facial wash, moisturizers, eye creams, toner, supplements, and serum). Okay, before you see the millions products that I got, I wanna tell you that this is expensive, VERY EXPENSIVE but WORTH TO TRY (sorry for the capslock) but seriously, I love it. I have to pay like over 3 millions for these but as long as my face is happy then I don't care haha.

Here is the products that I have to buy (LOADS lol)

I've been to this clinic few times, but this time I got face masks, which is so cool

I'll give you an update after a month of using these products.



A small haul

Hey guys, me and my sister went shopping yesterday and we bought some stuff, I thought I would show you anyway and give you my thoughts about the products. I went to SOGO at Plaza Senayan, actually we didn't want to buy anything there, we only looked around.

This mess started when my sister told me to get a new perfume for me and she recommended me to try the versace ones because she already had one and she loved it. I heard her and went to versace counter. The staff there was really nice (I guess all staff are nice from perfumes section). I tried them all from versace and bought Versace Crystal Noir one, because it's different from what I have. At first I didn't like it, but after I let it sit on my skin for awhile, I love it. It's floral (but not to floral), very dark, sophisticated and sexy.  The staff said "if you buy this one, you will get 2 only for IDR1.800.000." I remember my dad loves perfumes, so I went ahead and buy Versace Noir, the bottle is very luxury and nice, the scent is very clean and I know my dad will like this. It's good for men. Then, I went to Gucci section and this guy came to me and gave me a really nice sample of Gucci perfume. Man, I LOVE IT. So, I bought the Flora by Gucci with the green fluid in it. Oh I'm more a sweet scent kind of person, but these scents are the exception.

Okay, this... I've been eyeing for this perfume for awhile. I've been wanting this and finally got my hands on it. This is Taylor Swift "Wonderstuck", so many beauty youtubers rave about this, and I agree with them. This is sweet, and girly kind of scent. This is my thing haha should put it out there. I also love the bottle, it has bundles and very cute. Well done, Taylor.
And finally, this actually why we came to SOGO, my sister wanted to buy powder for her face because she ran out of one. We walked to Bourjois counter, I told her that I loved my "Healthy Mix" Foundation (my shade is number 53), people said it's a good dupe for YSL touché éclat foundation. But, my sister didn't like wearing foundation, so she got BB Cream in Rose Beige, she also bought brow pencil in number 03 Chatain. The Bourjois staff said if we buy over IDR500.000, we'll get free eyeshadows, so my sister asked me to pick one lipstick from the collection, and I picked up The Rouge Edition Lipstick in number 09 Orange Pop Up. 

Here is the swatch of the lipstick, it's very nice and opaque. I like it.

So, there you go guys, my small haul from yesterday, I had so much fun with my sister. Hope this will help you with the information I gave. Thank you.
