#BeautyReview : Kiehl's Clantro & Orange Extract Pollutant DefendingMask


Last year, Kiehl's launched 2 new masks: Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Mask and Tumeric and Cranberry seed Energizing Radiance mask. At first I wanted to try the Turmeric mask, because turmeric is one of in trend beauty ingredient that helps to clear acne, plus I'm pretty sure that this mask won't stain your skin like raw turmeric does. Plus it is a kaolin based mask, so I guess it would suit my skin type better. 

But then when I went to the counter to get it. I also tried the cilantro & orange extract mask, and I love how it felt when applied, and when I wash it off it reveal a smooth and plump skin. While deciding, I turn around the packaing and read a wonderful notice " SUNBURN ALERT: This product contains an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) That may increase your skin sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility sunburn. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for weeks after that.". Well I just read the rest when I type this. I actually stopped when it says that the mask contain AHA. I been suggested by my dear friend to tried AHA to deal with bumps and uneven texture around my mouth, nose, forehead, and under the eyes. 

This mask is a lot smaller that regular Kiehl's mask, it is 75 ml (2.5 fl. oz), and more expensive, the mask cost 480 000 IDR. It is packaged in glass container with plastic cap. When I open, the smell quite interesting, it has sweet minty floral smell, I imagine that it would smell like salsa since it is cilantro. I could hardly smell any cilantro. If you couldn't understand my explanation, this mask smell like tiger balm... Seriously...

So the sales person told me that I 'could ' use this as sleeping mask. So when I first tried it I use it like any wash off mask, I left it for 15 minutes and rinse it.. Aside for the smell and the sweet taste. I don't find that this mask do anything to me. So I wen't online and go to Kiehl's website. Sooo you use the mask as a leave on sleep mask. That's not an option. So at the second tried, I use the mask as instructed by the website. I use my toner, serum and face oil. Then, I brush the mask not to thin but not to thick, I leave it for 15 minutes and wipe the excess with tissue (I highly recommend high grade facial tissue for this step, don't use random facial tissue). your want to leave a thin layer, so it's okay if you still feel that there are some products left on your face.I watched some snaps and sleep until the sun shine.
When I wake up in the morning , I noticed that my skin feel super soft and moist and the rough bumpy area feels smoother. I've tried to use it for 3 weeks and I see a visible difference, especially my forehead become smoother, I've tried many product, but they do not do anything to my forehead. As for other parts I notice that this mask also help the Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Mask to maintain clean pore. So pores around my nose are much smaller now.

Interested to try it? you could buy it here. Yasss Kiehl's Indonesia has opened an online shop, and yes it's free shipping without minimum purchase, and yes they had 10% off for minimum purchased 500k IDR every wednesday (laidies only).

Hi June! OMG It's June Already!!!


It's June already! that's mean we are half way through the 2016. What have you done so far?

Me, well, I made more that 27 blog posts. I told my self that this year I'll try to post something every month, rather than post a lot of stuff for a month and gone for the rest of the year. I try to be more consistent in filling this blog with useful, informative and interesting content.

I also quit share my personal life and random rant about life everyday. That's mean I deleted facebook, path, twitter apps from all my gadget. I know I love writing, I love telling story. but sometimes hundreds words are not enough, and people would never be able to look from my personal point of view. It's nice when what you post getting direct feedback, like comment, like, stickers etc. But sometimes, people just assume what's going on with your life and create their own version of my life. So I decide to focus on social media where I could improved my skill and match my interest. Right now I very active in my Snapchat (altercouture) and Instagram(altercouture), I just talk about makeup all the time, so keep that in mind before following me.

I tried to teach! like teaching a serious stuff like English. My mom always tell me to try to teach. deep down inside I know I could teach..And I also know that I'm not good in make people to understand. If by teaching mean i could stand in class for 4 hours and keep the class turn into a riot, than I would say that I can teach. Teaching is easy if you know the subject really well and English is not my forte... Well now that I tried I know. I'll definitely will teach someday, but I'll teach makeup for this time.

And last, I try to make journal entry everyday, but I kindda lost in interesting stuff going on in my life, I was to tired and forget to write at all. Sometimes, I don't have anything else to write aside how I love makeup so so much. Like I don't even think about anything else aside from makeup.

So for the next half of 2016 I will...

Improved my makeup skill, I'll try to do makeup on many different faces, trying different techniques and trends. I wish in the end of 2016 I would be more confidence with my identity as a makeup and beauty addict. Although, people might squint their eyes I won't back up this is what I passionately love and enjoy doing. I'll tell myself to just shake of all the people who doubt you and keep work harder!

I should stop hoarding makeup and let some of them go.. Like I'll use some product twice and sit in my drawer until it smell funky and belong to wasteland. My cousins were shock by the amount and variety of product that I own. Even "I'm a makeup artist" excuse could not justify my large collection despite of the super tight budget. My cousin, propose an idea of  "preloved sale'. This is a garage sale for your makeup item, so you'll sell your used makeup item for cheaper price. There a lot of preloved makeup group in facebook. Interestingly there is a lot of people who doesn't mind with buying used  beauty item. So this such a win, I won't waste any product, and I have a little money to purchase other new item that I'd like to try.

I plan to upgrade my photo gear. I've always wanted to buy new lenses for my camera but I just so confused with which one to chose, I'm terrified with the idea 'I got the wrong lenses,and now it's useless and I just waste tons of money, I should just splurge it in limited holiday collection makeups". Since I'm sort of ambitious I also wanted a Ring Light.. #flyingmoneyemoji

Continue to be more consistent with this blog and try to write the Indonesian version more often.

And in 10 years, hopefully I could be inspiration for all your girl to fight for their dreams! 

So what have you done so far this year? What your plan next? 

Ramadan Kareem for Muslim reader. Selamat Berpuasa!
