Ahey! Hey, blog! I miss you! <3
Good evening, people. How's your Wednesday? I actually have to be busy this week, but I choose to stay home whenever I have chance because I'm having a phlegm-y-cough (ah I don't know how to write this!). For a week. Straight. It's getting better now, though I lost my alto voice last Monday to Tuesday. The sound was even more bass and blurry! Just like a broken cello... or unhealthy C-string on viola. Hahaha.
But today, while I'm home and get some moment to blog, I come with a splash of new product I have. Not really new, I got it last month.Together with my John Masters Organic Antioxidant Day Cream. By the way, man, it's already March. Time flies fast!
Anyway, here's the baby I'm talking about.
Whoa! Aster & Bay? What's that brand? Yeah, it seems unfamiliar around Indonesia, right? Here's the sneak peak about the cool little brand: CLICK THE LINK, BABY. Got it? So, a sweet couple made it. Touching? Yes. Very.
Now, the product I purchased. The name is Facial Serum No.3 : Purity - with watermelon seed & myrtle. Sounds like a fresh infused water or healthy smoothie! Or just a bowl of salad.
Wrong. It's a small glass bottle of oil blend with a fabulous natural scent (reminds me of The Body Shop's Nutriganics range), transparent yellow, my skin adapts to it easily.
I steal a little info from their website:
Purify Facial Serum restores radiance to oily and blemished skin by neutralizing excess sebum and detoxifying pores. Watermelon Seed oil dissolves pore-clogging oil, hydrates, and provides essential vitamins. Essential oils of clary sage, green myrtle, and geranium eliminate acne-causing bacteria while chamomile soothes inflammation. The result is a balanced and healthy complexion.
This purifying facial serum is suitable for all skin types, but is most effective for skin that is characterized as oily or blemished. The oils in the blend allow the skin to breathe while dissolving the toxins and hardened sebum that causes acne.
Ingredients: Oils of: Watermelon Seed*, Hazelnut, Hemp Seed*, Jojoba*, Sea Buckthorn*; Essential oils of: Clary Sage*, Grapefruit*, Geranium*, Green Myrtle, Palmarosa*, Chamomile*; Extract of: Jasmine*; Vitamin E (non-gmo). *organic

Okay. How's the effect on me? Hmm, I can't say so much. Or brag anything about this. I do notice a healthier skin, cleaner complexion. But not as extreme as you might expect. I don't use it everyday! :) This is my favourite night regime. So, I apply the oil, read a book, and sleep tight. I wake up with a smile. The oil doesn't linger on the surface. It mingles with the pores happily. If I notice some development on pore size, or blemish stuff, I'm going to tell you.
So far, I give this facial serum 5 TAPIRS. From 5. But why? It doesn't give you miracle! If I need a miracle, I'll go change my name, my face, and my life. I love the life I have now. Whence, I'm not searching for a miraculous product. I only choose a lovely skin care with friendly (and preferably vegan) ingredients. The effect will appear if I use it more regularly. :D
Haha! That's all for today. Drop your comments, so I can hear from you, World.
PS. No, I don't allow you to use my illustration for free!
