Hello everyone.. How's your weekend??
Me, well.. I'm staying home for this weekend, but worry not, cause for the next weekend I'm going to Jakarta to see my relatives coming from Australia, yay! ^^
My uncle (my mom's bro), his wife, and my 2 cousins is coming to Indonesia this November, so next weekend I'm gonna meet up with them after 10 years not seeing each other! It's such a long time..
Gosh, I can't wait till next weekend, hehe.. ^^
And now, as promised, I will review the beauty product from my recent haul. So here is the lucky number one!
The Body Shop Moisture White Softening Essence
with vitamin C and liquorice extract,
150 ml 5.0 US FL OZ
It's made in Hungary
As you can see, it's a transparent gel form lotion that is so light and will absorb to your skin, making it so smooth when you touch it. This is one pump-size, more than enough for my whole face! ^^
How to use it:
I read in Jeanjean's blog, here, that the right way to use facial essence is to pat (tepuk2) it lightly to your face (no slapping, please, hehe..). And not just patting it, but you have to COUNT it. Yeah, you read correctly. You have to count how many times you've patted the essence to your face.
OK then, the answer is, how many?
Ehm.. at least 30 (thirty) times for your cheeks, pat it using your both hands.
And.. here's the strange number.. 17 (seventeen) times for your forehead and chin..
It will make the essence absorbs better to your skin, and will not make your face oily.. (hooo.. so that's why..) Jeanjean wrote that she knew it from the Nu Er Wo Zui Da show..I must have missed that episode, so I'm spreading the words to you all, cause I think we should try this! So girls, go practice it at home, haha.. ^^
I have to tell you something about this essence, you have to let it dry first. You can test if it's dry or not by using the back of your hands. After it's absorbed by your skin, it shouldn't take too long, just 3 minutes for me.. Then you can moisturize and do your makeup.
What I like about this essence is that it's a nice primer for my makeup. My face has become less duller since I use this. (I'm so obsessed with whitening essence right now! ^^) My L'oreal White Perfect Essence is almost empty cause I'm using it every day and night, so I'm trying this! ^^ Oh my.. A girl's quest for a perfect beauty product will never end.. *sighing happily* ^^
But by the way, what's your favorite whitening essence?? (if you're using any)
Do let me know here in your comment! =)
OK then, for the next post I'm gonna review maybe 2-3 products altogether..
Because next Thursday I'll be going to Jakarta for a family reunion, and.. some beauty shopping, lol.. It's gonna be huge!! (the reunion or the beauty shopping?? Both, of course!!)
ps: my giveaway detail is still on hold.. I'm still preparing it..Be patience, ladies.. ^^
Happy Weekend, everyone!!
