TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey cream Mii review

???????????????????????????????

i’m a bit infatuated by tonymoly since their green tea mask awe me so much, and now i got myself ¬†a sample of red appletox, from the tox series. this sticky strechy cream are mainly purposed for moisturizing and bring resilience to the skin.

???????????????????????????????

it appears clear like gel, and very sticky like royal honey pot by skinfood¬†but the smell is rather peachy (rather than apple, coz it’s reminds me of peach sake pore serum) and fresh with a hint of honey aroma, for the matter of smell i like it.

i guess it doesn’t really looked different between before and after..haha ūüėÄ

tonmol appltox bfore after cheek

i’m a combination type, which sometimes really dry with so many oil, and don’t forget sensitive too, haha. after applying this sticky cream onto my face i felt it was shiny and somehow stay there with less absorption to my skin, but later i found that patting it helps to make it¬†absorbed.¬† indeed it feel heavy, since i wear it before i go to sleep at first. but then the next time i use it as a base since i’m running out of my moisturizer, and voila i start to love it, somehow it works as a moisture locker for my skin and as an adhesive to my bb cream. and since then i start to use it as ¬†base. but lately i change my bb cream from skin 79 hot pink to good afternoon tea by skinfood, and somehow the new bb cream is having it’s own load of shimmer, and i found it too shimmery if i used this appletox as base. so if u have the same kind of skin with me you might want to consider what bb cream you are using, it works better with bb cream or foundation that less shimery or even matte.

McDonalds shaker fries dan Manggo frizz Mii review

IMG_1222

Menjelang imlek Mcdonald’s seperti biasa bikin menu khusus, satu set minuman, burger dan kentang. aku nggak tertarik sama prosperity burgernya, tapi kepengeen banget nyobain mango fizz nya keliatannya seger banget gitu. setelah melewati drive thru routine akhirnya dapet juga minuman ama kentang ituh. mango fizz aroun 9 rebu dan shaker fries around 13 rebu.

IMG_1224

dari gambar promosi yang dipajang didepan resto, fries ini keliatan beda dan mengundang, kok ndilalah magic nya cuman sesachet bubuk penyedap blaah..pupus harapan2 indah aku. Berasa kayak gimana gitu nuang sachet ke kantong kertas coklat…kek sampah somehow. well benernya style DIY fries shaker gak baru sih di Mcd, tapi tetep..gambarnya gak bilang kalo begitu. oh well, kubuka lah itu sachet dan semerbak bau food additive yang nyegrak meruak, setelah kutuang sebagian ada sebuah memori aroma muncul…”anak emas…rasa keju…omaigatt!!”, bau dan rasa flavouring keju ini bener-bener sama persis sama jajanan pas sd keluaran indofood (jaman dulu kuanggep mewah dan mahal) berbentuk mi remes bermerk anak mas (any 80’s know this thing). Kalo balik ngomongin kentang nya sih..gak ada enak2nya, kering tapi gak kriuk, well to dry, i expect fries should crispy outside and still moist inside. cuman rasa keju anak emas itu yang sedikit membantu menghilangkan kekecewaan, bukan karna enak banget tapi ngangeni aja gitu.

IMG_1223

nah si mango frizz ini pada dasarnya soda + ice + mango syrup + nata de coco + mango jerky (manisan mangga). jadi rasanya bisa ketebak, dan sesuai pengarepan sih. menyegarkan pasti, apapun dgn soda dan es pasti berefek sama. tapi aku bukan biggest fansnya frill things yang numpuk dibawah, somehow gangguin kita nyeruput, suka nyangkut2 di sedotan dan pasti nyisa di bawah. nata de coco nya dipotong kecil2 dan tipis sih, tapi manisan mangga nya itu masih agak gede jadi ganggu, rasanya sih aku gak gitu suka, tapi kalo suka manisan mangga ya rasanya sama kayak gitu cuman ini kerendem air, definetely not my fancy.

pada akhir kata, aku sih gak bakal beli kentang itu lagi so 1 star out of 5

dan masih mikir2 kalo mau beli mango fizz, kalo kepengen banget aja beli. 3 stars out of 5 deh.

Maras Keripik singkong madura ;Mii Review

 IMG_1116

Hari ini dapet 3 bungkus gede keripik singkong Maras dari temen, secara aku penggemar keripik singkong, langsung aja aku buka deh, gak tanggung-tanggung tiga sekalian haha :D.

IMG_1108

Keripik singkong ini terdiri dari 3 varian, original, pedas manis, dan singkong kuning pedas manis. Ada beda jenis proses yang dipake dalam proses pembuatan keripik singkong madura biasa sama yang singkong kuning. kalau yang kuning itu kita sudah biasa nemuin, yaitu singkong dipotong tipis-tipis terus direndam dan digoreng, jadinya model kayak merek-merek yang sudah ada, sedangkan kalau yang singkong madura itu di rendamnya 30 jam (dibungkusnya ditulis begitu, bukannya aku yg pinter banget gituh..hehe ) jadi hasilnya lebih melembung (dikiit) dan renyah, renyah yang beda gitu.

Setelah cobain ketiga varian tadi, aku paling suka, cinta, dan gak bisa berhenti makan sama yang Original. Bukannya nggak suka pedes sih, tapi rasa sederhana dari asin, manis, dan bawang putih menurutku lebih dapet gitu di lidah. Dan memang dari lama aku suka keripik singkong style Madura, cuman yang ada di pasaran itu memanjang potongannya, jadi kadang suka kegedean dan keras, sedangkan kalo Maras punya nih bulat-bulat motongnya dan renyah banget. Sumpah bikin nagih, gak pake bohong deh hehe. Yang rasa pedas manis enak juga kok, cuman gak segitunya membuat aku ketagihan, tapi kalau kamu suka yang pedes-pedes-manis asik gitu sih oke banget deh.

Moga-moga di kasih lagi sama juragan keripik Maras nya ya…hehe

mau kasih 4,7 dari 5 bintang buat original-nya kalau yang lain 4 bintang aja yaa.. :p

Black Sugar mask wash off by skinfood Mii review

SF black sugar wash off

another sample sachet i bought from online for only Rp. 4.800 and it fill my little jar (approx 5 gr), more than enough for 3 months supply (at least for me)

IMG_0369

it comes in a dark brown color with a sugar granules, that somehow reminds me of a scrub, but in the ends i was sort of wrong.

how to use it:

1. wet your face (cleansed face) and apply an appropriate amounts (i only use around twice the amounts the spatula in the picture shown above), distribute evenly on your face

2. massage it around your face in a circular movements, and here the granules that at first feel rough start to melt out in our face.

3. leave to wait around 10-15 min and then wash it away.

enriched with minerals and vitamins, this face scrub effectively exfoliates dead skin that prevents make up while revitalizing skin -skinfood-

good points:

1. it really exfoliate my dead skin cell and tighten my pores, leave my skin moist and fresh.

2. it doesn’t have any hideous smell that linger or anything.

bad points:

1. after a while my dry prone area are getting dryer, just under my lips that is.

a tips fro my personal experience is just don’t use it to often, once or twice a week max, or you end up unsatisfied with the result.

i fall in love with skinfood this day, since i got all the awesome effect from any product i’ve tried, so you’ll gonna hear more ooowh and aaawh from me :p

i’d give you 4 stars out of 5 sugar dear!

royal honey mask by Skin Food Mii review

SF royal honey mask

i bought this sachet sample from pr3tty shop at tokopedia for only Rp. 4.500, it fill my tiny jar much. i’ve been using it around 4-5 times already and there’s still left for another 2-3 times more, with an adequate usage though.

royal honey closeup

it appears like a white-ish jelly, but surprisingly very sticky, like a honey. and it smell like honey (which i dont really fond of it).

IMG_0372

my camera couldn’t catch the¬†stickiness¬†somehow :p

how to use it:

1. cleans your face with your regular routine, then apply an adequate amount on your face (i found it a little less is better), apply it all over.

2. give a quick light massage around 10 seconds, and wait for 5-10 min

3. after waiting they should be watery (or oily for me) and then you can start to give a real circular heavy massage to your face, then the impurities and cellulose start to show up.

4. after massaging thoroughly and u feel like there’s no more dead skin to harvest, u can wipe your face with tissues and wash them away with water.

i like to wash it only with water and use it at night before i go to sleep, it did my face slightly oily (i’m a combination skin type) and sort of sticky feeling, but i bear it and then wash it properly with foaming wash at the morning, to get an extra refreshing and moist feeling in the morning. but if you had a super acne prone skin and have so many active acne i don’t recommend you to use it, but if it’s only one or two active acne you could avoid the area and cleans it with foam afterwards.

and exfoliating mask with royal black honey and royal jelly extract that slough away dead skin cells and transform rough skin into a nice honey-glazed complexion -skinfood-

good part:

i found it exfoliate my skin if i use it around a week to another using,¬†even though¬†some part of my face didn’t came up as tight and moist like other part. but i like this mask, it really made my pore tighter, healthier, and moist.

bad part:

i don’t like the honey smell personally, and how it made my skin a bit more oily (but with the nice result i could bear it, but still…no oily would be better)

apart from that i would love to buy another sachet (hehe, super thrifty me) and put it in a jar, for the same benefit with a cheaper price who could say no?!.

a sweet 4 stars out of 5 for you honey!

Mii review Newlook playful soft lenses -brown & grey-

IMG_0559

Newlook playful

diameter 14,2

BC: 8,6

43% water 57% polyhema

using period 3 months

price normal IDR 80.000

but i got it while on promotion buy 2 get 4 on optik Melawai, shared with my bff :p

IMG_0588

the brown accent color is very fade with a bold black limbal

IMG_0981 IMG_0982

so does the grey, you almost unable to see the accent color here.

IMG_0984

IMG_0988

(not a acne clinic before after kind of photo anyway :p, ignore my pimple)

this is how it looks on my right eye, i think it’s just slightly bigger than my real eyes, perfect for gothic look, or smokey eyes.

 

IMG_0991 IMG_0995

without flash it appears almost no different with my the brown one (under), my bff even say it looks a fade blue.

but with flash it looks so awesome, made me looks like a snake (haha) yet mysterious and fantastic:p

IMG_0552IMG_0558

the brown one somehow reminds me of a cat’s eyes, lovely and mellow. i’d like to accompany it with browney make up, or natural make up.

i dont really have any other comparison in the term of the color, but i found it wearable and some people didn’t notice that i’m wearing a soft lenses (brown one), but somehow i feel a bit tired using it, seems like my eyes nerves are working harder to see. but it feels comfortable, after a while it feels like i’m not using a lenses.

it comes in a jelly like state if i may say, rather than my first softlense (X2, zuhra) newlook comes thicker but somehow more gummy-er. i believe it’s related to the water content.

i think i’d give em 3,7 out of five for the tense feel on my eyes especially when i use it to work on my lappy, but out of that it feels comfortable, natural, and cheap enough for me.

Mii review on x2 Zuhra Blue softlenses

   IMG_0541

zuhra by X2

diameter : 14,5

45% polyhema, 55% water

best curve 8,6

6 month using period

price : IDR 65.000

IMG_0587

the design is pretty, detailed, with two color tone, blue on the accent and light black.

IMG_0530

the different is really visible between my real eyes, indeed created the bigger eyes effect.

IMG_0539

it’s pretty much blend into my eyes, they pretty much¬†unnoticeable in normal light. since this is my first ever soft lenses, i still couldn’t judge whether it’s comfortable enough or no. bur after my 2-3 using it, i consider it comfortable enough, yet the diameter make it a bit harder to put in for first timer. since the water content is pretty high it comes thinner than other.

IMG_0729

this how i dress up in it, suitable for you who seeking for a cute looking eye like a deer, i would try other color and variant from X2 since it’s cheap and high in water content.

IMG_0810

this is my cousin wears it with flash.

i’d love to give 3,5 stars out of ¬†5 just because the color is too ages ago…me actually want grey though.

Klinik Bisnis untuk wirausaha by smartfm, ITS, and telkomsel ; Mii review

i wake up very early that day, due to sudden invitation by my mate to attend an invitation only seminar at my former university. Hoping for an inspiring moment like before at ciputra university, i came with an open mind and heart. And after 1 hour late after the schedule, the seminar start. the first speaker comes from a character building company, he talked about character, and somehow i heard so many yawning and plastic noise, yup audience get bored. And so do we, and i somehow doesn’t like being question around on what kind of person i am, when the answer is only categorized in psychological group, and represented in colors, for me is just another¬†horoscope on the back of teens mags.

the second speaker comes from ITS incubator, a new incubator on my university where burger krawu, and many others come from. she speak about her living in japan experience, and about the incubator’s activity a bit. oh well, it’s interesting but like a good old¬†safety¬†boots, me don’t need it. and so be it we spend our day listening to both, and then my mate left me for another errand he said, on the next speaker from telkomsel, well it’s an obvious matter that they presenting their product and stuff, that’s it, well it’s another info. and there’s another session when the speaker seated in front of a desk and a empty chair, like a doctor visit, they’ll answer to your question, well i got no question around, so i spend another 40 minutes talking to my next seat about what he sell, and oh my..here’s come my insight, he sell coffee on a mobile basis, with a modified tricycle and he lived in my neighborhood (later day i saw his cart on the street and it’s awesome and huge). So inspiring and totally a network to begin.

bored and sleepy shoes

hmm.. 2 stars out of 5 then..sorry to say.

chocolate & blueberry Tango waffle ; Mii review

tango waffle

 

i got myself two types of Tango waffle, chocolate and new blueberry for review material. i used to eat Tango waffle when i work at Banjarbaru, south Kalimantan. But back then i guess there’s only one flavour, cheese, or maybe only that we can get.

 

choco Tango waffle

i’m not a big fan of chocolate flavour snack, for me chocolate is a boring flavor sometimes, and so with this Tango waffle, the filling is light and mousse-y, regular chocolate flavour. but the waffle is totally crispy and tasty, i still prefer the cheese flavor back then.

 

blueberry Tango waffle

this blueberry flavor is soooo blueberry, at first i thought it would be faux and weir kind of flavor, but instead it come out with a total sourness and aroma of blueberry, well their definitely artificial flavor, but this one is pretty uncommon than other kind of blueberry flavor. i used to be a blueberry big fan, and used to pick anything by it’s blueberryness, but i couldn’t finish the whole two packet of this tango waffle, they still hanging there in the fridge. this just not my kind of snack, i would never buy them again, unless i got a short term compulsiveness.

 

i’d give tango waffle 2 out of 5 stars, me no likey.

seafood and Long’s Nasi Goreng @Long’s chinese restaurant ; Mii review

after some consideration and coincidence we picked fancy red sign of Long’s as dinner spot. This Long’s restaurant have some chain in Surabaya, i ever taste one on ngagel, and this time we tried Tunjungan chain. Located on the opposite of the famous TUnjugan Plaza, this place is pretty eye catching, but cramped parking lot. after parking on the other part of the road at circle K, we walk a bit (that moment reminds me of our backpacking time in bukit bintang), crossing the fast moving main road and finally arrived.

this Tunjungan chain, is specified for seafood, so in the first floor there lots of fish tank filled with many kind of fish. but since we planned for a simple meal, we picked fast food Nasi goreng (fried rice). i choose Nasi goreng Seafood and he picked Nasi goreng Long’s. It comes up with a drink of our choose, from tea, lemon tea, to water. Cost only around 13.000.

my¬†choices comes out very delicious, full of flavor, and one thing that amazed me, there’s an octopus on it. a pretty rare seafood that almost never comes out on a simple meal like nasi goreng. since i love those tentacle from octopus, even they size is super mini, i looove them so much, it’s like finding a gem in the rice, haha.

while my mate’s choice comes out slightly spicy and sweet, but still not as tasteful as mine. well he pick that only because it comes up with a fried egg (he need protein, he said), but in the end he ate mine’s a lot because the spiciness of his own choices.

meany matey..look at him taking my food and still stop me from finishing…that’s too much carb he said.

in the end Long’s is definitely a best choice for hungry tummy that need a healthier food, well in other branches they got so many vegetable based menu, and absolutely affordable price. But they were packed most of the times, so you need to be patient on crampiness. but the service is pretty good, our orders comes out on an average speed.

i’d give Long’s my 3.5 stars out of 5
