KKCenterHK U.K Flag Nail Patch

When you don't have any time to do your nails, nail patch is the best answer,
because you don't need to wait it until dry and it last for days! *o*
So.. KKCenterHK kindly sent two nail patches for me a few months ago, but I just had a chance to post it today, ughh sorry for delaying this post for a long time >__<

The instructions on the back of the packaging~

It comes with two sets of eight nail patches in various sizes ^^

I chose this U.K flag pattern because it looks so cool, but unfortunately I didn't think whether it would fit on my nails or not at that time, and yeah I admit that I regret it now! *sigh~ 

The patches are too big for my small and short nails!! Err honestly I've never tried this kind of nail patch before, so.. I was very confused, and finally I applied them on my nails with my logic lol xD
I use a scissor to cut them into 3 parts (YES, 3 parts!) And as you can see on the picture below, I applied the center parts on my nails, and you can use the top one and the bottom one as french tips teehee~
Then, I use a nail clipper to cut off the excess of the nail patches on my nails,
but it looks soooo messy, right?? ∑(-x-;)
And unfortunately, it doesn't look like U.K flag anymore duh -__-

As you can see on my thumb nail, I trimmed the patch too much, so it couldn't cover my whole nail. Ughh sorry I failed, and it was all of my own fault *sigh~ >__<

And before I use the top coat, the edges of my nails have started to chip!!!!!! OMG why so fast?! T__T So.. I didn't use a top coat at all, and it only lasted for 3 days.

But please stay tuned for my next post about my other nail patch from KKCenterHK, it's sooo much better than this patch because I've learned to use them properly lol xD
Overall, I think these are perfect for any special occasions, for example like a party~

Btw, they also provide tons of other great and cute patterns.. but I remind you to choose the pattern carefully, okay? Don't choose the wrong pattern like me! T__T
And if you're interested to try, you can buy it HERE for USD $5.84!!

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day ^^

See ya~ 

Disclaimer: This nail patch was sent to me by, but I'm not being paid to do this review. This review is 100% pure my own opinion!

Review: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream

Hello everyone!
Today I'm back with a new review of Korean BB cream~
Well, Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream is my current favorite BB cream, and I think it's quite hard for me to move on from this product! Okay okay, I know that CC cream have become a trend and very very popular now, since almost all beauty brands from western to asian have launched their own CC cream, but honestly..
I haven't tried any of them until now! Uhm maybe I'll give it a try after this product is completely run out. Am I too frugal? lol xD

Oh actually.. I already knew this BB cream for a long time, but I just bought it
at the end of last January for IDR 148.000 after I watch a video of Michelle Phan's January Favorites lol (≧▽≦)

Description:Jelly BB makes moist and bouncy jelly skin. Has jelly texture that helps spread evenly and creates fully hydrated and shiny skin. It is also perfect for covering up facial blemishes. Mint water hydrates facial skin, and marine jelly complex makes soft and bouncy skin.
And sorry I didn't take any pictures of the ingredients.. Because the box color is
mint green, while the text color is white.. and honestly my camera couldn't really take very-good pictures sigh~*aigoo I need a new camera!!* (≧д≦)

It comes with a good quality sponge inside the box. It's more dense than other sponges!

This BB cream is available in two shades:
#1 Aqua Beige
#2 Aqua Neutral

And mine is Aqua Neutral, because I'm so afraid that the Beige one would make
my face looks too bright >__<

It comes in a matte glass jar with a spatula attached to the mint-green plastic lid, and it contains 40ml. It's quite heavy and fragile errr, so.. it's not travel friendly! ;AAA;
And as you can see, it's shaped like a jelly / pudding when I flipped the jar~
Omo the packaging is so cute, eh? *o*

As you can see on the pic below.. the jelly-texture of this BB cream is very unique, and it's so bouncy especially when I shake the jar~

But sadly.. it has a noticeable artificially floral scent, and it smells too sweet and quite strong for my nose duhh! (*´Д`)=з
So, I don't recommend this BB cream for those of you who are really sensitive to fragrance, okay?

And here's the swatch on my hand~

And here's the result on my face~

This BB cream is very light on my skin. The coverage is very sheer, it gives enough coverage only for my redness and pigmentation, but it's buildable to medium coverage. However, it leaves a white cast and it looks cakey on my face if I apply too much! So, yeah I still need a concealer to cover up my pimples and my imperfections >__<
Well, I have oily & combination skin, and for me.. the oil control of this BB cream is
just so-so, because my face started to feel greasy after 2 - 3 hours, geez!
And the finish is semi-matte, it looks so natural and perfect for everyday look ^^
Actually it's rather difficult for me to blend this BB cream with my fingers, because
it's quickly absorbed into my skin, so I prefer to use a sponge or a brush~
And unfortunately, I found out that this BB cream contains Parabens ughh ;___;

Overall.. I only recommend this BB cream for normal to oily skin types, because I think this BB cream is not suitable for people who have dry skin, since my mom told me that this BB cream couldn't blend very well on her dry skin, so it looks a bit cracked and powdery err -___-

 Love :
✩ Reasonable price.
✩ Has SPF 20 PA++
✩ Very light on my skin.
✩ Natural finish.
 Doesn't break me out.
✩ Unique jelly-texture.
✩ Comes with a free sponge inside the box.
✩ Cute packaging.

 Hate :
✩ The jar is quite heavy and fragile.
✩ It smells quite strong.
✩ Couldn't cover my imperfections very well.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day, girls ^^

See ya~

My First Beauty Treats Box (April Edition) ♥

Well, today I'm back with another (late) post about beauty box.
Ughh I feel like a bad blogger, seriously! Please forgive meeee ;___;
So.. I subscribe a beauty box from Beauty Treats Indonesia just for a month in last April, I was very curious to try it because I think this is the most affordable beauty box than other beauty boxes that available in Indonesia. And I received this beauty box
on last 19th April when I was in Bali island with my schoolmates.

As you can see on the pic above, it was tied with a pretty pink ribbon. It looks so cute, right?? Actually.. the black box itself looks quite simple, but still elegant with a logo of Beauty Treats ^^

I was quite surprised when I found a hand-written card from them. I don't know why, but it feels more personal for me~

And I found some beauty vouchers and brochures inside the box, tied with a black ribbon as well. But for me.. errr it looks a bit messy, so I highly suggest to put them into an envelope. (≧д≦)

Some beauty vouchers and brochures that I got.
I also got a little book from Beauty Treats that explained about all of the products inside the box, and also some beauty tips~

And here are the products that I got from their April Edition Box 

Omo I got so many products inside the box that I paid only for IDR 95.000!

So, it comes in a pretty box with  a combination of pink and white colors, and it also has a magnetic lock in the middle of the box, so I think it's very secure ^^
And inside the box, there is a card from Lolabox that explained about the theme of their first box and the details of the products inside~

I also got an envelope with a sticker of Lola signature, and I found some brochures and some beauty vouchers inside. But unfortunately all of the vouchers are valid only in Jakarta, while I live in Surabaya *sigh~ So, I guess I don't need them at all! (≧д≦)
