Review Mentholatum Medicated Lip Stick


Hey everyone! Today I want to share about a product I can't live without, lip-balm. Back then, I've a really severe lip conditions. Due to some unrecognized reasons, my lips swell up and the skin around my mouth is really itchy and red. And the product that save me is Mentholatum Medicated Lip Stick. I've been using this product ever since my elementary school actually, and I'm still using this until today. I have a strange need for using lip balm. After I could bought things with my own money, I will try one lip balm to another but eventually will get back to this product.

Actually, I don't know why this product is called medicated lips stick while it is actually a lip balm. Anyway, I've a lifetime stock of this product in my house. Got this straight from Japan. I have relatives in Japan, so from time to time they will send me this product. I don't really know if you could get this product in Indonesia though.

"MENTHOLATUM Mediacated Lip Stick" is a medicated lipstick that gives a fresh, invigorating sensation on use. Covers the surface of the lips, guarding it from dry, cold air, preventing chapping and dryness. Contains menthol and camphor, excellent for providing an refreshing sensation to the lips. This is a non-medicinal product.


Mentholatum Medicated Lip Stick has a fairly simple packaging. Dark green background with white fonts. The cap is pretty tight so you don't need to worry for it to open when you put inside your bag. It has a sturdy body. But I hate the fact that to pull the product out you need to roll it from the bottom. It has the tendency to stuck.

Tis lip balm has a really strong mint feeling. So if you don't really like the cool and a bit harsh feeling on your lips, this product won't suit well. But since I love the mint feeling, it is okay with me. It has a sturdy texture so it won't chapped easily. This lip balm also fragrance free.

I love love love this product. If you have a really chapped lips, this product will fix it all. Your lips will feel so smooth and cool.

- Sturdy texture
- Strong mint feeling (depends on your preference, this could be a positive or negative trait)
- Fragrance free
- Secure packaging

- Hard to find in Indonesia

Yes. I would love to recommend my life-safer product to everyone especially to those who have a dry and heavily chapped lips. This product really suit my needs and I've been using this as long as I could remember.

à bientôt!

Review Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner

I am a big fan of eyeliner. I've a relatively small and dull looking eyes, but by using eyeliner, I could add some drama to my eyes. I prefer to use eyeliner than mascara for some unknown reason. In my opinion, solely using eyeliner is already enough to open up the eyes.

Today review will be about Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner. I bought this product for idr 70 at the drugstore which is really affordable.
ColorStay Liquid Liner

Elegant, sexy and sophisticated, Revlon® Colorstay™ Liquid Liner allows you to emphasize your eyes with precision. Dries quickly and lasts all day.


Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner has a simple packaging design. I've mine in jet black. It has a small felt applicator, a bit too thick for my liking but easy enough to control. Not really suitable to line lower lash line though. I couldn't make a really thin line with this eyeliner but it doesn't bother me since I like my eyes to have more drama.


Liquid eyeliner is indeed a liquid. But not to worry, I found this product dries really fast. What impressed me is the fact that this liquid liner comes out really pigmented. I choose jet black and it is indeed a really jet black.


I used this product on daily basis and somewhat satisfied enough. It does last all day but in my case I find that the liner always smudge a bit so I have to reapplied the smudged area. I've a bit oily eyelids so, well... Sometimes I feel a my eyelids become a bit stiff when this product dries. Though the stiffness doesn't last long. But, until the end of the day, aside from some smudge in my case, this liquid liner really stay really dark and black.

- Easy to use felt applicator
- Very pigmented
- Dries quickly
- Affordable

- Smudge a little bit
- Hard to draw a really thin line
- Not suitable for lining lower lash line

Yes. I do recommended this liquid liner especially to people who like their eyeliner really pigmented. The application is fairly easy because of the short brush. I don't think it's easy enough for first time user. Not really work with people who like to keep their eyeliner thing though, but perfect for winged liner.

Review Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream


Nowadays, BB Cream suddenly becomes a must have in most beauty bag. I personally dislike using foundation because it feels heavy and really uncomfortable on my face. But I do realize my face needs some help to even out its color, so BB Cream is like a light out for my problem. Not only it's light enough to use on daily basis, it does the job as moisturizer too, even sun cream at the same time. And now I want to tell you guys about a BB Cream I've been using for this past year, Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream.

Canmake is a skincare brand from Japan. It is an affordable drugstore product which is pretty popular there. Anyway, I bought it at first because the packaging kinda get a soft spot in my heart. But well, the product works well so it's a nice bonus.

Review Lancôme Génifique Youth Activator


I already know this product for a quite some time, but because it's really pricey, I haven't gotten my hand on it. Until one day, I read StellaLee's review about it. It really pricks my interest. Feeling exceptionally determine, after a long struggles, I finally get my hand on this baby! Yayness!

I used this product for about 3 months. Why it's only survived for 3 months? Well, because somehow, my mom also used this product and nearly make it her own. She used a handful of one pump every time when it only needs a really tiny amount. Actually this product could last around 5-6 months depending of the usage. I use 3-4 drops for each usage.

Lancôme Génifique Youth Activator comes with two sizes, 30 ml and 50 ml. But I choose the smaller one because of the price and I don't know if this product will work well with my skin. Bought this product for idr 1 million while the price for 50ml is around idr 1.500 million if I'm not mistaken.

Lancôme Génifique Youth Activator actually is not a real serum, it works as a booster or some people know it as pre-essence. A booster is usually used after using toner and before applying serum. It works to maximize the skin regeneration process. Skin regeneration process naturally happen once every 28 days for those who're under the age of 25, but after that skin will start to lose it's ability to regenerate. So this product will help returning your skin ability to regenerate as fast as the youth skin does. This is not a really anti-aging product, it regenerates and rejuvenate skin cells. All age and all skin type could give this product a try.

Review BRTC Blemish Serum


I have reviewed about BRTC Blemish Toner in the previous post. Now I want to review the next step of my skincare routine, the serum. I usually use one line from specific skincare brand, this way the result I get from the products will have the maximum effect.

Serum is applied after toner but before moisturizer. Serum gives additional moisturizer and penetrates deep beneath the skin which most moisturizer not able to reach. Anyway, I have been using this product for 1 and a half months now. I bought this product for around idr 238.

Review BRTC Blemish Toner


I really loves Korean skincare products! Yes, I do. I'm dying to have a fair and flawless skin just like those Korean celebrities. That's the reason why I've been trying their skincare products, hoping that one day my skin will be as radiant as them. LOL!

After a long time eyeing for BRTC brand, I've finally got a hand on its blemish toner. I've heard that this brand is really great for treating acne. And now I get a chance to try it, I feel so happy (^_^). Well you see, I got an oily acne prone skin, especially in T-zone, after several hours, my face could look like a frying pan err..

Toner is a must in my skincare routine. Toner not only remove oil and traces of dirt which my cleanser left but also freshen and make applying serum much easier. Facial toner is applied after you have cleansed the skin but before applying serum and moisturizer.

Bonjour and Allô!

bonjour tout le monde! Allô!

This morning, we conclude there are at least three most horrible things in life:
1) getting buried in frustrating and utterly depressing deadlines,
2) slow internet connection, and...
3) neglected skin condition.

We believe that skin is the biggest living organ that our body has. The condition of our skin reflects the general health state of the body. It is really confounding why people would ignore their skin condition as it is the one who helps us to protect the body from harmful external environment materials, regulates the body temperature, prevents water evaporation from our body, and the list go on. Rewarding all these hardwork is just a logical thing to do.

Skin care is more than just simply buying expensive and money-sucking products. Taking care of the skin means giving this largest organ what it needs. And this is the purpose of this blog.

Finding the right product which meet our skin needs is not the easiest thing to do. That's why we intend to help by giving our review, so that people will consider if the product will suit their skin needs. We really understand the excited feeling when buying a new skin care product which we thought will be the one, but turns out it was nothing but a waste and store it in the corner of cabinet, feeling betrayed and disappointed. 

So there, we are here to help you minimizing buying a wrong product. Because remember, even the most expensive, money-sucking, wallet-destroyer skin care products might won't compromise what your skin needs.

À bientôt.
