my facial care

Hi girls i decided to make my very first product review! usually i only discuss about my outfit
and fashion show but since you cant seperate all beauty things and fashion so this is it
I've been trying so many facial wash brand from convenience store
and 2 famous skin clinic in Indonesia

my skin type is normal to oily in T area.
sometimes i get monthly lil bump on PMS but my acne doesnt really last longer.
usually just 1-4 days and my face will back to normal again as long as im not touching it.
before i talk about this product im gonna talk about another brands and also
some products by dermatologist and give rate to all of it!!! ^^
so if you live in Indonesia, having acne problem
 and still considering about where is the best skin care
clinic in here, you need to read this post til finish.
i give review to all products that i've been try.

Clean and Clear foaming facial wash

 it smells nice, but doesnt have scrub in it,
i prefer facial wash with scrub cos i feel like it cleansing my skin better.
clean & clear is only clean my face but doesnt leave fresh feel and not lightening my skin.
i give it 2.5 stars from 5

Ponds Facial wash & Biore Facial Wash

its like something i'd love to use if i forget to bring my usual facial wash
and the hotel only provide them in bathroom. its better than not washing my face at all.
i give them 1 star from 5

Natasha Skin Care

maybe some of you know that Natasha is one of famous skin care clinic in Indonesia.
they are pretty much everywhere either in a big malls, or located in nice district.
. i used to use their night cream, day cream, and also facial wash
for like 1 year. actually their acne cream is good it reduce my acne but didnt work as fast as Erha cream. Natasha facial wash its about IDR 70.000 (in 2012)
when i was run out of facial wash and im about to take a bath
i just grab Acne Creamy Wash from nearest convenience store.
i mean who want to drive an hour to get facial wash from dermatologist if you are in hurry to take a bath right??? and it turn out my Natasha Facial Wash doesnt work better than convenience store brand
so i stop using it. its only more expensive.
Natasha toner is also didnt work as good, i stop using it after 2nd bottle.
their day and night cream is pretty good if i wake up in the morning and notice
lil bump on my face if i use this cream it will dissapear in about 4-5 days.
for Natasha skin care if you have acnes problem you're gonna spend about
 180.000-350.000 for once visit (2013 Natasha Skin Care Senayan City,
i give 2.5 stars from 5 to Natasha Skin Care

Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash

Acnes Creamy wash this one is also nice, work so good on normal skin,
dont cause new acne on my face. this product work as good as Natasha Facial Wash.
and of course easier to get everywhere in supermarket and also cheap!!
we all love cheap product that works good right?
 i i give this product
3.5 stars from 5 and i recommend this one if you have
normal to oily skin or problem with acne.

Erha Skin Care

Erha Facial wash is about IDR 70.000 - 80.000 (roughly 7$-8$ in 2013)
i used Erha night cream, day cream, and facial wash about 8 months but right now i dont
have any problem with annoying acnes anymore,
let me answer all rumour about Erha Clinic cos im pretty sure so many
boys and girls in Indonesia curious about this skin care products.

"people say that Erha product is addictive?" YES ITS TRUE.
"does it expensive?" yes more expensive than Natasha Skin Care.
"does it work better than Natasha?" it reduce my acne just like Natasha cream,
Erha cream works FASTER than Natasha,
specially their night cream. 
"how can you stop using it if its addictive?" when im still ACTIVE USERS i
use it everyday but i decrease it in about 3 month til i finally can stop using it.

all those cream is about IDR 70.000-80.000 each (2013)
 to get Erha cream you need to
meet their doctor, the doctor will make prescription for you
and you need to pay IDR 150.000 for that,
and they also charge for "counter service" idk why.
its only IDR 15.000 but its pretty weird
they charge you for cashier fee
(2013 Erha Skin center Mall Metropolitan Bekasi)
 IN NATASHA SKIN CENTER they give consultation with their doctor FOR FREE.
to see a Erha doctor usually you need to be in waiting list for like 1-2,5 hours and after you finally get ur
prescription about what cream you should buy, you need to wait AGAIN about 30 minutes - 1 hour
 so they can prepare your cream and all things that you need.
usually they give you 2 day creams, 1 night cream, 1 facial wash,
sometimes they offer you toner, and they are commercial brand they have
so many product such as sunblock, loose powder for acne skin, hair products blablabla
but if you dont want to spend too much let me give you advise, just take their day creams
and night cream, their facial wash is optional it work good on my face
but not really give big contribution to cure my acne. i can change it to "Mentholatum Acnes"
it work the same. Erha facial wash is just more expensive. 

for once visit you're gonna spend about IDR 300.000-450.000 (30$-45$ in 2013)
sometimes they give you pills, but my mom is a doctor too she said its just regular antibiotic to calm your active acne. so i dont take their pills.
the next visit if you want to get ur usuall products again you still need to pay for IDR 150.000
for consultation fee even though maybe they are not giving you any new prescription. yeah thats sucks.
and finally here comes my favorite facial wash

"Garnier Skin Naturals Light Complete"

since right now i dont have any big problem about acnes anymore just like before,
i prefer this one better than "Mantholatum Acnes" facial wash.
i personally so obsessed with orange and lemons. i eat 2 orange everyday.
as we all know it contain vitamin C which is good to our skin.
make skin looks brighter and healthier, of course you still need to workout and sweating
 to make your skin even more glowing. so if some of you trying to get whiter skin,
you better eat a lot fruits that contain vit C, to me its just more make sense than using body loation.
(but of course i still use body loation)

when i have lemons in cooler i usually use it for face mask because i watch some youtube tutorial
about how to make your own homemade face mask. all you need to do is just squeeze your lemon and use 1 tea spoon of sugar as your scrub and put it all over your face. use it like once every week, but since
i try Garnier facial wash i was thinking "hey i can ABSORB all lemon benefit on my face everyday!"
yeay!! (^O^)/ 

the packaging says that multi action brightening
exfoliates & brightens.

yes it isnt brightening on your first try, but if you keep using it i feel like my face feel smoother
and it really exfoliate and make it look brighter just like my homemade lemon mask (o>w<o)
the best benefit about this product IT SMELLS VERY REFRESHING!!!
so after long tiring day i'd love to clean up my make up using this and feel so much fresher.
(but dont put ur hope too high just like all facial wash brand this one also cant remove
your waterproof liquid eyeliner, i still need to clean it with
baby oil first, lets keep REALISTIC people hahaha)
i used to complain a lot about facial product just like you read, but ive got nothing to
complain about this one.
the price is adorable,
i can get this product so easy in every supermarket,
dont need to wait freakin 2 hour in dermatologist's waiting room

it looks yellowish white with scrub in it ^w^

lets read the packaging promises carefully.

fine exfoliating beads (true)
lemmon essense to intensively cleanse (true)
visibly brighter (after using it a while its true)
clarify skin (true)

how to use it  : tied or blow your bangs, gently massage on wet face, lather and rinse with water, pat your face gently with your favorite towel (optional <3 ) 

and TADAAAA it gives me nice and clean feels but it wont give you that sparkling effect,
i just being "lebay" >u<
i hope you girls enjoy MY VERY FIRST REVIEW. i know i complain a lot about some brands
but hey we need to be objective and picky for the sake of our face skin. its crucial right??? i give it 4.5 from 5 pink stars ^O^ yes color does matter everyone >3<

 ok i'll see you again on my next post.
im not sure if it will be another outfit post or another beauty product review.
let me know if you like this type of post. sorry for my poor english skill.
