Hi everyone. It has been a long time since I review a product. So here we go, one of the products that I got from my Ipsy July Glam bag, a face mask sheet from the secret key nature recipe in honey. To be honest, I never use face mask sheet before just because I don’t have the interest to try them on, but now I have it from my subscription so why not right. So here are my review | Face Mask from Secret Key.




An Easy Way to have skin care when you travel

I know when we are traveling somewhere there is no way we remember to think about beauty regime like masking our skin, all the thing we need to is just enjoying the holiday under the sun with the loved one, but with this face mask you still can do your skin care in 15 to 30 minutes while you enjoying your journey in the plane.




the application is easy

 As I said before the package is simple and easy to go, so does it with the application. They put way to do it at the back of the package, in case for some people they don’t know how to use it. The mask has a soft scent which I like and it is so refreshing.

The size was right for my big face

As you can see the mask sheet was covered all over my face even my face is big, but I don’t like those part where I think it supposed to cover my eyes. It was just awkward. That part wasn’t cover my eyes nor hanging there wasn’t very useful. So I think if the just put that part over the nose area will be great. Well, you see my nose didn’t get any of it.

This face mask makes me think to have another face mask sheet later on. Ipsy sent me 2 of them but another one is used before I took pictures. The conclusion is I like this product. I saw on Amazon the price for this mask is around $7. I still looking for the real price because I search in ipsy even they don’t have.

I think that’s all my review | Face Mask from Secret Key. Hopefully, you enjoyed it. Thank you for visiting my blog. By the way, do you like to use face mask sheet too? Which brand do you usually have? Tell me in the comment below. Bye xoxo




My childhood memories were full of “how to get rid of acne” sentences. I have a lot of acne growing up. That makes me feel insecure to meet people especially new one who never known me before. One of the ways I tried and seems have a result for my face is egg face mask. After I used this mask my face feels tighter and smoother. When you have acne your face mostly will feel like full of bumps, and I can definitely feel those bumps gone after I used this egg mask. So here is the way I do my egg face mask.

 




 

What you need to do:

– Wash your face (as you usually do)

– Wipe your face with a warm towel (you can leave the warm towel on your face for five minutes to mimic the steamer)

– Separate the white egg and the yolk, chill the yolk in the fridge we will use this again

– Apply the white egg to your face and wait until dry

– Wash your face with warm water

– Apply the chilled yolk to your face and wait until it dries up

– Wash with normal or cold water 

– Apply moisturizer

 




 

The egg face mask is easy to do. Commonly we always have the egg ready in our fridge. We just need to pop it in the small bowl and voila you have a nice egg face mask, the easy and natural beauty secret. This mask is natural there is no preservative nor alcohol which can be dried up your skin instead of repair the skin.

Here is my video so you can watch how I did it. Hope you enjoyed!




Some of us must be having trouble with our skin, especially on our face. Every day we use makeup, we go outside, we took a lot of residues from the product we use until the dust that sticks to our face, because of that, our face deserve to have some cares. One of the skin care I like to have every week is scrubbing. This time I’m gonna share you my sugar and honey scrub. One of the benefits of sugar and honey scrub for your glowing face, it is natural and you have it in your kitchen.

Here how we do this:




  • First, wash your face with warm water
  • Prepare sugar and honey in the small bowl (1 tbsp sugar – 1 tbsp honey)
  • Mix the ingredients
  • Scrub your face GENTLY with the sugar and honey scrub, you can also scrub your lips to make it smooth and plump
  • After 1 minutes of scrubbing wash your face with cold water
  • Apply moisturizer of yours




Skincare is used for making our skin healthier. Some people might have sensitive skin but some might have strong skin to be scrubbed even harder. So make sure you do not overdo whatever it is. Here is my video about sugar and honey face scrub you might like to watch.

Hopefully, this skin care routine of mine is helpful for you guys. Just remember do not overdo it, because it can irritate your skin. We want to make our skin glow and healthy not suffered. By the way, thank you for visiting my blog. xoxo




So because I run out of my face wash then I was looking for new one. I was searching for so many product that has no perfume or things like that in it which can dry out my skin and leave me tight feeling on my face just like my old facial wash did.

After searching and browsing I decided to try face wash from The Body Shop Aloe Calming Foaming Wash. In the packaging this face wash is fragrance-free, colorant-free, preservative-free and alcohol-free.

My skin type was so oily and because of that I tried lots of product to decrease the oil on my skin and now it become so dry even flaky and wrinkly in some areas like between my eyebrows. This is why I need gentle face wash that will not scrape off my skin natural oil and makes my skin even drier.

The product is in liquid form but when I pump it out it will transform into foam. Honestly this is my first time using foaming face wash like this one. I was confuse in the beginning because how can it clean my face with this foam. I tried once and failed because I spread into my palm first like regular face wash and when I put onto my face the lather just gone. I was like “whaat?!”. I tried again the second time and I put onto my face directly after I pump without spreading on my palm and it works that way. I was laughing because I was so scared this thing is not worth it.

 

 

My problem with face wash is some of them are drying my face afterward, makes my skin feel so tight like anything and also I really easy to get breakout from face wash even it just a facial wash and will not stay for long time on my skin but I could get breakout and when I got breakout it will take months to get better.

The Body Shop Aloe Calming Foaming Wash is not making my skin as tight as before but I still feel some dryness after I washed my face. I think if I use moisturizer this dry-feeling will not be a big issue. 

PROs

  • Alcohol free
  • The foam makes it last long in one pump
  • Affordable (I got it for around $13 for 5 oz)

CONs

  • I still can feel dryness on my face
  • I can’t get the travel size because I travel a lot and transferring product to new bottle just not my passion

I think for the next I want to try another face wash from the body shop like the tree tea oil one or maybe will try cetaphil cleanser but for now I will use this face wash and see the different on my skin.

So how about you gangs? Do you have same skin problem like I have?

Growing up as an active girl who has a lot of activities in a day made me forget to take care of my skin. I rarely wash my face and directly went to bed once I get home, because I was thinking I will do it tomorrow when I take a shower. I never know what is moisturizer, cleanser, toner and all those things related to skin care. I was just a tomboy girl who likes to play drum and do acting on the stage. 

My surrounding begun to put an image that I am a girl with acne, and it hurts me because I never want this thing happen in my life. I remember one of my classmate shout on my face and telling “you are ugly! see how many islands you have on your face”. It shocked me and I can’t forget about it until now.

When I was in senior high school my acne was the worst ever. I was having a boiled-shrimp-skin-like. My face was just red and plum like after sauna and also oily nay big pores. I felt so embarrassed with my face. My confident so low but I try to make the condition like nothing happen, yet inside me I was broken. 

One day I met a lady who claim her self as a beautician. She come to me and ask me to come to her salon and get the treatment for my face. Without further do I said yes and I came to her salon in the next couple days. There she was giving me some kind of treatment for my acne from scrubbing, poking my acne with something like vacuum for acne and blackhead. Honestly I never done things like this before. My face was still virgin, no one ever touch it accept me. So the treatment true or not I had no idea.

After couple of days I realize something wrong happen to my face. The acne become even more than before. I was so panic when I knew the acne come until my neck which I didn’t have before. I was freak out. I did a big mistake not once but twice. My low knowledge bring me back to that lady and ask her why my skin getting worse than before, and she was easily said “it’s normal, your acne was just all out, after this you will get nice skin”. I don’t know why that time I was believing her and go through the second treatment with her. I was crying when she popped out my acne with that vacuum machine because it hurts so bad.

After I got the second treatment from her and she said my skin gonna be fine after that, I didn’t see any improvement. I was stop hoping and was thinking “okay, maybe this is my destiny to have such an ugly face as people always told me”.

After so long break with my hope to get better skin, I decided to have another chance but this time I would use natural way straight from the plant. Surprise.. surprise.. It works. So here how I clean my acne naturally.

 

  1. Aloe Vera Gel

I used aloe vera gel which I scrap off from the leaf and I put onto my face almost everyday. 30 minutes in the afternoon before I take afternoon shower. Sometime I didn’t have passion to scrap it and put in a bowl and I would just cur the edges and scrub the gel onto my face directly and leave it around 30 minutes. It made my acne calm and the dry skin around the acne not so patchy.

2. Cucumber Puree

I used cucumber puree almost every night and rinse off after 30 minutes, once I rinse them off, Omg! What a nice face I have. The skin so bright and hydrated,smooth, it just perfect. I just want to touch it always but I keep my finger away cause I don’t wanna break the cake. LOL

 

 

3. Egg mask

Some people will only use the egg white for mask, but I used both of them. I used the egg white as mask and wait until it dried and I rinse it off then I put the egg yolk as mask right after. Wait until the yolk dry too around 30 minutes. You tell me after you try this one. I used this mask not in everyday basis, just once a week because this mask need more time and I have patient.

4. Cinnamon Powder

I used this mask after I notice my acne gone and just the scar left behind. I never used this when I have acne. I used 1 tbs cinnamon powder and diluted with rose water until I get like-paste consistency then I put onto my face and wait around 30 minutes or until dry and rinse off. I used it only once a week. Cinnamon makes your face heat so if you feel not sure don’t ever try. I use this for treating the scars from acne. Here I have a video for cinnamon mask. Check it out!

 

 

5. Lime Juice

I read lots of article said lemon or lime juice can threaten acne and make it gone. So I tried this. I notice something with this. My acne was reduce little bit but it made my skin more oily and my pores bigger also my skin becoming dry around my cheek and forehead. My skin also become flaky. So whether this work or not i think it has side effect when it worked. So i never used this method again.

You need to remember, these are all will not be working if you don’t wash your face before you sleep. Now my skin has no acne anymore because I keep the routine to wash my face before I sleep even I am so lazy or sleepy cause I don’t wanna go back to the time where people mocked me because my acne.

For you who still fighting with acne there will be the way to conquer this annoying thing. As long as you keep trying and optimistic with your hope. I can have my better skin now even the dip scars still there but at lease I have no acne on my face anymore. One more tips from me before I end this post, Never ever poke or pop the acne by your bare fingers, because you will have dip scars like I have and to make this scar gone is not as simple as making the acne gone. So be patient and keep in the right path when you did it, it’s all worth it.

I like when people say, “your face is cleaner than the last time I saw you”. Who doesn’t wanna have a flawless face? Everybody wants to have it, but unfortunately to get the flawless face should do some of the things which are required some movement. Honestly, am not a girl who likes to spend my time to clean my face especially at night when everything I want is just my soft and smooth pillow.

I used to hang out with my friend until late night and when I got home I just didn’t have any passion anymore to wash my face, from then I got a lot of acne and the scars still there on my face and I so regret of that. So from my experience, I learned some simple ways to clean my face when I am so lazy, and here we go:

1. Never ever sit whenever you get home

The very first thing you do whenever you get home is going to the sink and clean your face and never ever let your butt touch the bed before it. This is the really simple way to combat laziness. When you get home and sit down for a while you will be lazy to do anything and you will be ended up seeing the Instagram feed for the eternity time.

2. Makeup remover pad

So you can’t pass the first way and you just too lazy to wake up from your throne, the thing you can do is making a makeup remover pad every week. Yes, makeup remover is so the ready to use, but you need to take cotton and the makeup remover separately, why don’t just mix them and put them beside your bed, whenever you are lazy to get up and wash your face, you have this cotton ready to swipe all over your face and taadaa your face is clean.

3. Take advantage from your bladder

You just not into making things like makeup remover pad, because of you just lazy to make it. Then you can take the advantage from your bladder. Before you sleep at night when you feel you gotta go to the restroom then take the advantage by washing your face too. So you no need to go back again to the bathroom to clean your face.

There you go 3 simple ways to clean your face when you are lazy. As a human, it is okay to be lazy sometimes but not all the time because it will affect your life in negative ways. However lazy you are, keep in your mind that your face should be clean before you sleep. When you skip to clean it one day then you be skipping it all the week than months and when your face getting pimples you will be adding more money to heal the acne and have to sacrifice for other efforts to get rid those pimples. So what do you do when you are lazy to clean your face?
