Dolly Wink False Eyelashes #1 Dolly Sweet

Oyamaa! Finally I can get my (long-awaiting) wish list item ヾ(^∇^)
After buying my first Dolly Wink eyeliner, I'm totally falling in love with Dolly Wink. Then I got my Dolly Wink Eyeshadow #03 Smoky Brown as the second item.

Lately, I just made a purchase for this Dolly Wink Lashes! (*≧▽≦) And along with the lashes, I got a Dolly Wink Glue with cheaper price because it's a special combo. What a deal (≧∇≦)


One thing that I can't resist from Dolly Wink is its packaging (≧∇≦) Tsubasa is also concern about packaging beside the product quality, so that's why Dolly Wink products are always having kawaii packaging.

The packaging itself is made by hard plastic and it can stand still on a surface. This combo package also include a Dolly Wink Glue (pink bottle - transparant), but the dimension of this combo package is different from usual Dolly Wink fake lashes packaging. It's because the glue is attach on the front side, so it's just make the packaging bulge instead of adding height dimension.


The packaging has a transparent square and it gives you a clear view to see the fake lashes model without needed to open the seal.


The glue is attach at the bottom and make the packaging bulge a little bit.


On the back side, you can see an example photo of wearing this lashes. You can also find the description and price.


Tsubasa gives you an example photo of using this fake lashes. It really look like dolly eyes and oh I love the circle lens which she wore for this look <3


So, after I look the detail on the back, I found out that the exact price is ¥ 1,200 or $12.28 or IDR 135.000,- But I bought this for IDR 230.000 ; shipping cost is included.


When I opened the package, there was an instruction about how to use eyelash with the picture showing step by step. It helps a lot for those who are newbie in using fake lashes.


So, this is the eyelash pack. It should have a free eyelash glue in a tube, but in this combo package, that item isn't included. Instead, I got a real Dolly Wink eyelash glue.


Only contains two pairs of fake lashes, I think this item is kinda pricey among the competitors. But, you can make it worth it by using the lashes for many times. Careful when you took off the fake lashes and clean the band with makeup remover or baby oil, then you can use it again and again and again.


Closer to the eyelash, you can see that it has clear band. I always like fake lashes with clear or transparent band more than the ones with black or white band. And for newbie fake lashes user, the clear band will make you easier on doing eye makeup (^∇^)



The band itself is a bit longer in the right and left end. And since this eyelashes is quite long, make sure you put it in a right position ; as close as possible to your lash line and also be careful with the end of the band, it may hurt your eye if you put it too close to the inner corner of your eye.

Kawaii~~ (*≧▽≦)
I love how it can make a huge different in my eye. It makes my eyes look cute and feminine without looking too dramatic. It's long indeed, but it doesn't have too much volume and I think it's wearable for hangout, going to mall or even party.

Note : I'm so sorry for the lighting, I know it's too light (ノ´∀`*)ノ
It looks curled up well from this side of view.




I use this fake lashes to make my first makeup tutorial #shy #blushing.
The tutorial will coming up soon ~~ヾ(^∇^)

And about the eyelash glue? I'll review it in a separated post (^ _ ^)
Be patient to wait :p

SkinLIFE Lotion

I was subscribed to get products from Cow Brand Indonesia through Indonesia Beauty Blogger for review purpose. And in a week ago, I got a package from Cow Brand Indonesia (*^▽^)
COW BRAND is a Japanese company that has been present for more than 100 years, with the vision to realize the quality of daily life better and comfortable. Inspired STYLE COW special motto, "Life with Cow Brand Soap", Cow brand is now present to accompany you to the Japanese products are easy to use, safe, high quality and with raw materials, aroma and texture of the original Japanese tastes.


The package consists of two products from SkinLIFE line ; SkinLIFE foaming facial wash and SkinLIFE lotion. SkinLIFE line products claim can help to reduce acne and maintain skin moisture. In this post, I will review about SkinLIFE Lotion.






It comes in a bottle with flipped up cover. The bottle itself is transparent so we can see the contents, this is a plus point since it will make us easier to notice if the product is running low.



Though this product's origin is from Japan, Cow Brand Indonesia attaches a sticker with brief information in Bahasa on the back of the bottle. It gives explanation about how to use, warning, ingredients and expired date in Bahasa. For me, this is the plus point, since it makes the Indonesian customer easier to understand the product.


It came with a plastic seal, so if you gonna buy this product, make sure the seal isn't broken.


Different from SkinLIFE Foaming Facial Wash - which the sticker with product description in Bahasa  attached on the back of the bottle - in this product, the sticker is attached on the plastic seal. So, after uncover the seal, we can see the product description in its origin language, Japan.


In case you know how to read Japanese language and want to read the product's description in its origin language, I already took a photo of it (^∇^)


The bottle size is quite tall, so I can't say it's a travel-friendly since it will take a (quite) lot of space in a travelling bag. But, you can move some amounts to a smaller container and problem solved (^∇^)


The cover is easily to flipped up, but make sure you shut the cover tightly after open it.


The product is clear water. Its function is similiar with toner. Just pour some amount to a cotton pad and wipe your face with it. Use the lotion after washing your face with SkinLIFE foaming facial wash.

For me, the product doesn't smell good. It smells like alcohol - too strong. However, it gives a refresh feeling after usage. And about the claim that the product can help to reduce acne, well, honestly I can't give a proof about it since I didn't have acnes on my face. But it doesn't give me a break out after using the product for exactly a week.


UPDATE
After 2 weeks (almost 3), I still don't experience any breakout. But, due to my menstruation period, one or more small acne(s) suddenly popping. Though I still using this product, it doesn't prevent my face from any hormonal acnes. And about my skin condition, which is dry, this product doesn't make my face feeling more dry. And somehow my nose is now adapted with the strong alcohol smell.




Cow Brand Indonesia also enclose a brochure about their products line. In the brochure is written brief descriptions about all Cow Brand Indonesia's products line.

SkinLIFE Foaming Facial Wash

I was subscribed to get products from Cow Brand Indonesia through Indonesia Beauty Blogger for review purpose. And in a week ago, I got a package from Cow Brand Indonesia (*^▽^)

It comes in a pumped bottle with white and red color. When it came to my door step, a sticker also attached on the bottle pump (and I don't know what written on the sticker (´・ω・`))





Though this product's origin is from Japan, Cow Brand Indonesia attaches a sticker with brief information in Bahasa on the back of the bottle. It gives explanation about how to use, warning, ingredients and expired date in Bahasa. For me, this is the plus point, since it makes the Indonesian customer easier to understand the product.



I decided to peel off the sticker and there's a product description in Japanese language behind. In case you know how to read Japanese language and want to read the product's description in its origin language, I already took a photo of it.



As you can see on the picture above, there's a pump stopper (or what should I call it?). It prevents from inadvertence pumping which can be a mess if you stored it in your bag while traveling.Talking about travelling, this product isn't categorized in travel-friendly packaging (in my opinion). Its size is quite big and will take a (quite) lot of space in a bag. The product also can't be moved into a smaller container (for travelling) since it needs a special bottle which equipped with a foam maker.



Since this product is a foaming facial wash, the bottle is equipped with a foam maker and will give you foam soap when you pump it. This photo shows you the product amount in one pump.



The foam is very soft and gently clean my face. It's easy-to-use since it's already in a foam form after I pump the product out. It smells nice and not too strong. It gives a clean feeling after I wash my face.



Is it really can help to reduce acne(s)?
Well, honestly I can't give a proof about it since I didn't have acnes on my face. But it doesn't give me a break out after using the product for exactly a week.

UPDATE
After 2 weeks (almost 3), I still don't experience any breakout. But, due to my menstruation period, one or more small acne(s) suddenly popping. Though I still using this product, it doesn't prevent my face from any hormonal acnes. And about my skin condition, which is dry, this product doesn't make my face feeling more dry.

By the way, this product also have refill package. So you don't need to get another bottle, instead you can buy the refill and pour it in your empty bottle.
