Bye Bye Dark Circle

Lately I've been working at one of the state hospital's emergency room, so I guess it is imaginable how much stress it puts to my mind and my body. It is hard to look radiant when I have dark circle under my eyes, so then I've looked into some product that can get rid of it. There, then I found Timeless Truth, a beauty brand originally from Taiwan which specialized in mask. They have a wide variety of product, including face, eye, and breast mask. Luckily, I was able to get two of their products, which are apple lifting correction eye mask and orchid extract whitening mask. Now that the urgent matter is my dark circle, I should try the eye mask first. 

Product: Apple Lifting Correction Eye Mask, Price: 150.000 idr (for 5 pairs)
Orchid Extract Whitening Mask, Price: 50.000 idr/piece 

The apple lifting correction eye mask contains apple extract, arbutin, and green tea extract. While apple  extract is good for skin metabolism, able to prevent early aging, and able to maintain the smoothness of the skin, arbutin plays its part at reducing pigmentation. So, together they claimed to be able to provides a great effect on dark circles under the eyes. Great news, just exactly what I  need! Let's see how it will affect my dark circle. 

How to use the apple lifting correction eye mask:
  1. Cleanse the face.
  2. Open the sachet and take out the eye mask.
  3. Gently place the mask under the eyes. 
  4. Remove mask after 15-20 minutes, gently massage the remaining essence under the eyes, post cleansing is not needed.

Before using Apple Lifting Correction Eye Mask
(I do not wear any make up, except a little lip cream)

How the eye mask looks like:
 It comes with bio cellulose mask that contains lots of extract liquid on it. It smells good, feels cool and refreshing once applied to the skin. After 20 minutes, it still is feel cool and refreshing.

After using Apple Lifting Correction Eye Mask:
I do not see any significant difference, but of course my eye looks a little bit more fresh. I guess it has to be worn a couple of times if we want to see maximum effect.

Based on my opinion, this product is worth to try, but it is best to buy one package and wear it regularly, after that then maybe we could see the maximum effect. The price is not expensive at all as you can see above, it is easy to get just by one click away at its web, and is easy to use for it only takes 15 minutes per session and we do not need to cleanse after using it. And for me, this mask does not give me any pimples or skin break out post-usage. I like to wear any kind of mask at night, for our skin is in optimum condition to heal itself at night. To conclude, I give 4 stars out of 5 :)
So, let me try the face mask and write another review while you can start to click Timeless Truth web and browse your desired product, shall we?

Judge a Book by Its Content

Some of my friends say why should we waste money on face treatment or skin care while we're still young? They say at this very age we do not need any face treatment to prevent skin aging. To dear friends, let's just agree to disagree, shall we? For me, I believe that what we do today will bring impact later on. Our skin may look okay, but it's the cover that we see, we do not know what happening inside, while actually it is also as important as how it looks like from the outside. Just like a book, the content is actually as important as the cover. So, shouldn't we have to design the content precisely and carefully?

I've been using this product that contains nutrition to hydrate my skin and prevent it from aging, but after I do some studies I found that there are some other similar product that contain the same nutrition but with better improvement: free system (paraben etc free), whoa what a bonus! I guess I should share it with you then.

Secret Key (Originally from South Korea)

I guess you already heard it before, so do I. But I never really do some research about this brand before, not like this time. Secret Key Indonesia claiming to be all natural, yes yes I know that a lot of brand is also claiming to be so. But, what capture my heart the most is its Starting Treatment Essence that contains Galactomyces, that they claiming to be one of the yeast ferment filtrates, plus 7 free system (this is what really capture my attention!): paraben, mineral oil, benzophenone, alcohol, animal oil, color, spice free!  If you do not know how important is this 7 free system, I give you one explanation, paraben is a preservative used in cosmetic product, so to have a nutritive product without paraben is like owning a high quality book with top content. There might be some other brands that contain Galactomyces, but this 7 free system, not every product have it, I guess. 

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence 
Rp 199.000,00 at Nihon Mart

Speaking about the Galactomyces, like any other product with Galactomyces in it, is very useful for whitening and reducing wrinkle, hydrating, and even up the skin color. This starting treatment essence should be used first before any other skin treatment at our daily skin treatment routine. And for me, once I use a product like this I would like to put the essence in my hand and directly apply it to my face without cotton, because I do not like the product being absorbed by the cotton. 

At the time I study about Secret Key, especially about its Starting Treatment Essence I stumble upon Nihon Mart Kosmetik Online, and surprisingly this web which specialized in providing Japanese and Korean Brand, sells Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence in a very reasonable price. I once visited another web and they sell Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence, please note that it is not The Rose Edition, Rp 220.000,00 which is way more expensive than the one I saw in Nihon Mart. So, I think I should buy one at Nihon Mart, of course. Well well, do not judge a book by the price, even Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence doesn't cost high, it contains 90% Galactomyces so I believe that this product will be an effective skin nutrition. Let me just end this post and directly go to Nihon Mart to save my self one Starting Treatment Essence, may I?

Neither Beaches Nor Highlands

I think I already told this couple of times, if I were asked to choose which leisure time I prefer: enjoying the sun in the current famous beaches or waiting the sun to rise in  the chilly atmosphere of some beautiful highlands? I choose neither. Wandering around a city, accidentally found an old pier or impulsively visiting a gallery is still my favorite. 

Museum Angkut, Batu, Jawa Timur

So, I was more than happy to be able to spend some rare moment with the person whom I love to share with in my kind of favorite wandering spot. Rare moment should I call it, because if we meet, we always be haunted by time, limited time. I already told in my previous post that we live in a different city and he has his job and dreams to pursue and so do I, so it is not easy for us to spare some time together. We even ever meet for only an hour, (while at that time we haven't met for about five or six months), in the airport in Tangerang, while I wait for my next connecting flight. So, this rare moment where we can talk and walk all along without having to look at the clock nervously, this is the time we cherish the most.

Museum Angkut, Batu, Jawa Timur

Speaking about Museum Angkut, this is a museum which hosts various kind of transportation, from pedicab to racing car, and sort and placed them based on their origin country. So, in this museum you will see a thematic country display, designed with the famous landmark of each country. A decent place to study about transportation and take some good picture, plus talk a good conversation while walking all along the museum with the one you love to share. Do open the link above so you can take a look at Museum Angkut official website.
