Back when I was still in Indonesia, I always skipped moisturizer because I thought it's too suffocating for my oily-acne-prone skin. I only wore light moisturizer like I reviewed here, otherwise I only wore serum, followed by sunscreen and it was alright.
Now I've been staying in the Netherlands for almost 4 months and I got a really bad breakouts. I know I've been through worse but this time the pimples are soo huge and deep inside the skin that I'm sure it'd leave ice-picked scars if I ever pop any of them. I also got lots of small bumps on my forehead (fungal acnes). And seriously, no matter how hard I tried to stay cool about it, it's really frustating and made me avoid any eye contact when I go out for groceries.
I tried lots of things, eliminating some skincare and got back to only using serum for my skin care like I did in Jakarta, cutting down dairy products and sugar intakes, wear no make up, get enough sleep, I even tried slathering my own breastmilk onto my skin as a facial mask (yes, that's how desperate I was), but I saw no improvement.
Until I got a package from Korea which contained moisturizer cream that I reviewed on my vlog here. I was hesitate to tried it since the moisturizer contains dimethicone and lots of heavy ingredients that I afraid will worsen my acne, but it wouldn't be nice to not try the product.. So there I was, trying the moisturizer for the last (which is third) step in my current skin care regime for 2 weeks straight. Surprisingly, my skin got better! No more new pimple, and the small bumps were reduced. My Lord, why didn't I realize before that my skin is dehydrated due to the cold and dry weather!? Moisturizer helps the skin to create barrier so it won't easily attacked by bacteria. Gosh! why I was being so skeptical *face palm*
So after 2 weeks has passed, I stopped using the moisturizer that I received for review purpose (it's good but I am just being cautious with an ingredients that I'm just not sure whether it's safe for a breastfeeding mom like me for a long-term use), and took a moisturizer from my stash. It's the same line with the serum I've been using for abt a year that I reviewed here: Skin&Lab Red Cream:
Ini postingan pertamaku mengenai traveling, yang sebetulnya di awal aku desain blog ini memang rencana awalnya ada section yang membahas traveling juga. Soalnya aku suka banget traveling dan lebih suka jalan sendiri dibanding ikutan tour group, selain karena lebih masuk budget, jalan sendiri juga lebih enak karena gak usah ikutin pace orang lain.. Tapi apa daya, kesibukan kerja full time + kuliah + bagi waktu sama hubby gak memungkinkan buat sharing waktu itu. Sekarang mumpung belum balik kuliah dan kerja, trs pas kemarin sempet polling di IG jg ternyata yg vote 100% tertarik sama topik ini, jadi deh Rekomendasi traveling murah ke Budapest bersama keluarga atau teman-teman ini. Biar judulnya 'Murah Meriah', tapi bukan backpacking yg nyiksa2 amat kok hihi..
First of all, bangunan2 historikal bergaya Eropa yang megah merupakan salah satu pemandangan yang aku nggak pernah bosan. Itulah kenapa aku pengen banget ke Prague, sayangnya hubby udah pernah kesana.. Akhirnya dia hadiahin trip ke Budapest, Hungaria, yang katanya mirip2 sama Prague, tapi setelah kesana kata hubby malah bagusan Budapest karena tourist attractionnya lebih beragam. Bener-bener gak nyesel deh..

Whoever said that your selfie is 70% of your hair, knows us women, best! Even when the make up is on point, dress is on point, but if the hair don't cooperate then it will definitely mess entire look. This is the comparison pic of why hair matters:
see my point?
The left is my everyday hair, and the right side is obviously wig though..
TBH, Postingan ini udah di draft sejak 29 Agustus 2016 *face palm*
Tp krn ada video tutorialnya, dan 2 hari setelah itu aku melahirkan, terus kaget baru jadi emak.. jadi susah banget waktu edit videonya, ditambah lagi aku memang gak ada pengalaman edit video sama sekali sebelumnya.
Sekalinya disempetin jam 2 pagi ngedit video, filenya corrupted sampai 2x! Akhirnya nyerah & I forgot about it for a long while..
Sampai akhirnya sekarang udah mulai vlogging, I still think I need to finish this, so here I go..
