Tatcha Enzyme Powder


I'm  obsess with enzyme  based cleanser. All this obsession start last summer, when visited Japan my sister bought Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder. Since then, I hooked with this type of cleanser. I never found any other thing that cleanse pore as good as Suisai Beauty Clear Powder. The only downside is it contain paraben.

How come enzyme could help to cleanse your pores?
Stuffed pores are clogged by dirt,oil and dead skin cell. Enzyme broke down the oil and dirt make your pores cleanse with out loosing much moisture. Unlike the scrub that might scratch your skin or another chemical that might dried your skin. So this perfect for sensitive and dried skin because it would work with the targeted problem.

So, I've been searching and surfing ever since. I came across with Tatcha Polish Deep Rice Enzyme Powder ($15).  It's similar to Kanebo Suisai.

There's no better place to shop beauty product like Luxola, load up your cart as Luxola offer up to 35% discount, Today from 19.00 WIB till 23.00 WIB. Here's a little guide of what you should get from luxola.

Pre-Order 101

Where did you get that Hourglass palette?  Where could I get that Aesop's Toner?
I admit it, I'm not just enjoy wearing make up but also hunting for makeup. There's not much selection in the market (especially if you live in a small city). So to furnish my needs and desired I asked for personal shopper help to acquire some stuff. They could help you to get small beauty item to styling tools, fancy cleansing device etc. We called this process as pre-order.

What is Pre-Order?

Pre-Order is an order made to item that is not available in stock. As we know that the lack of selection of beauty brand and product, some people took initiative to offer a service to acquire a product based on your order. These people are happen to have relative who live in other country or just generally travel aboard a lot. This kind of service been operating since past 6-7 years.

Why Pre-Order?

We use this kind of service to acquire some beauty brand that is not available in Indonesia. Or you just some one who is always keep up with trend and couldn't wait till the product launch here.

Where could I Pre-Order?

If you are familiar with the biggest women forum in Indonesia, Female Daily. You could visit the Market Plaza and found some sub forum where they offer this service. You could find they offer to acquire beauty and fashion item, from US, Europe, Korea, Japan, Singapore etc.


From instagram. You could find the seller that offer this service by search the hashtag. Try a keyword likeyou could try 'Jual(name of the brand)' e.g. 'jualtarte'

My selected seller

From the FemaleDaily Forum

- Mimo (Pre Order by Mimo) (US)

- Valent (US)

- Moporie (US)

From instagram

- Cristal Beauties (Singapore)

My personal opinion

I'm not a big fan of pre-order. Just simply I couldn't wait when will the item will arrived. But I pre-order for some occasion, e.g. Holiday. We all know that close to holiday season the brands go crazy and give like crazy discount. We couldn't miss this chance to get the item that we'll always wanted or just feel great scoring a great deal. Around this time Pre-Order comes handy because you could get the item that is not available but in much tolerable price.

Honestly I never place an order openly in forum. I'd rather contacted the seller through email. and those 3 seller are really good, trusted and professional in my opinion.

Metallic Wonderland

While other see the winter wonderland as a colorful red, gold, and green winter decoration, or all white flat city covered in cold snow. I vision my winter wonderland is a world where the entire city covered in sparkling snow, the frost flower and ice crystal added the whimsical touch. I pick 12 silver items that telling the cool and romantic 'Metallic (winter) Wonderland'.

Happy Sunday! There some ambiance in Sunday that makes you lazy. The noisy neighbor gone for weekend, no one rush to go to school, street is empty. everything so peace and calm.

Han Ye Seul's (Sara) Looks in 'Birth of a Beauty'


Please Raise your hand if you also enjoying watching 'Birth of a Beauty' (or virtually you could leave comment :p). 'Birth of a Beauty' is a new week-end romantic comedy drama in SBS. If you know the film '200 pounds Beauty', this drama has a similar plot. Read the synopsis here. I fall instantly to the heroine's look (Sara) as I watch the drama opening. She is wearing this pretty knee length red dress. She has a long hair, middle parted and light brown dyed with brownish blonde highlight (don't judge me I'm not the best at explaining hair).

1. Hair  

-Romantic loose french braid-

Sara (played by Han Ye Seul) has a light brown long hair. Most of the time only styled by middle part and loose wave. Some other time Sara wore a head piece something like fascinator. Sometime, she had her hair loose french braided. I love this style so much you could easily pull off this style to complete your romantic and innocent looks.

Did you catch the loose french braid?



- Thin and slightly curved eyebrow-

One thing that different from most of Korean beauty standard is Sara's eyebrow. She doesn't have that thick and straight eyebrow. She had a thin eyebrow that slightly curved in the end. most of the time she wear peach color lips. There is one time she wear a red lips. If you are beauty addict you'll knew it right away that she use YSL's Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain. After certain exploration I found that she use shade 11 Rouge Gouache. Read more about Sara's Lipsticks here.

-Red dress, Nude Pump and a micro size Satchel-

I think that they had a romantic sexy concept. Most of the time, Sara wear cute mini dress, pump and coat. Sometimes Sara wear creeper and sneaker. She looks so cute in the creeper. Other thing that I notice she wears micro sized handbag a lot. Read more about Sara's outfit here,
