This Dr Jart’s clay foam will make your face instantly brigther

I think it’s inevitable for those with medium to tan complexion wanting a brighter skin. So sometimes we resort in an instant solution – those evil Vitamin C injection, yes there’s such thing! I know the celebrities are doing that for a boost of energy, but in this part of the world, many are doing it without professional supervision for beauty related reason. Very dangerous endeavour I must say.

So instead of the dangerous path to instant solution, I present you something that will make your complexion instantly brighter at a reasonable state but still very safe. Mind you, it will make your skin brighter but at a normal state, not brighter than your original skin complexion.

What is it? Dr Jart Trans-Foam Clay in Calming White

It’s a white clay product that is actually a foam cleanser that you can use as a normal cleanser. Similar to the Glamglow cleansers. Once it touches water, it will transform into a clay.

How to use it? Apply liberally allover your face, on a clean face and dry skin. Leave it for about three to five minutes because it’s sort of like a quick mask. Wash with warm water while massaging the clay in circular motion until it all transform into foam and lather off.

I prefer to use it as a second cleanser because that way I can get the maximum effect of the product.

Light gel moisturiser for every skin type: Dr Jart Most Moist Water-Sure Gel Cream

I get asked a lot what moisturiser would be great for combination or oily skin? Well, it’s hard for me to recommend anything because I have a very dry skin. My skin drinks up any hydrating product like there’s no tomorrow. But I imagine this product from Dr Jart named Most Moist Water-Sure Gel Cream would be a perfect moisturiser for every skin type, including those with combination and oily skin.

Theoretically, combination and oily skin will still need hydration because their skin though producing more oil but they still need water to give the skin hydration or else it will compensate the lack of hydration by producing even more sebum. What both of these skin types need is the balance of hydration between oil and water not depriving the skin of both which create imbalances to the skin. A light, oil-free and/or gel type moisturiser would be the perfect kind of moisturiser for these types of skin.

In theory. But you can test this theory yourself and let me know how it works for your skin.

What is it?

Dr Jart Most Moist Water-Sure Gel Cream. For Asian and UK market the line is called Most Moist but for the US market it is called Water Fuse line.

From the Sephora website:

What it is:
A refreshing, oil-free gel cream moisturizer infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump skin all day. 

What it is formulated to do:
This refreshing, oil-free gel cream binds moisture to the skin for long-lasting hydration without stickiness, while olive leaf and cranberry strengthen the skin barrier to boost elasticity.

From the Beauty Bay website:

Dr. Jart+ Most Moist Water Sure Gel is a refreshing anti-ageing moisturiser ideal for dry and dehydrated skin types.

Specially formulated for prolonged moisturisation, Most Moist Water Sure Gel is enriched with natural Botanical Extracts such as Oat and Cactus which firm and lift, whilst hydrating the skin without irritation. With a gel cream consistency, Most Moist Water Sure Gel removes dead skin cells and smoothes rough, dry skin for a smoother surface texture.

Who is it for?

Basically I would say for anyone who needs hydration but you want something with light texture. Whether you have dry, normal, combination or oily skin, if the keyword in your search of moisturiser is “hydration” then this could be it. Especially great to use during day time or if you’re keen in layering in skincare products. This will not add up “weight” to your overall skincare layers.

Dr Jart Water Up Serum for extra boost of hydration

All of you must know by now that I’m kinda obsessed with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) serum. Not only that it makes my skin bouncy and supple, serum that contains high concentration of HA tends to keep my dry and parched skin well hydrated all day long. Despite how dehydrated it is. Now, one of my favourites HA serum would be Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron which is super affordable because it costs at around USD 30. However, it’s not the only HA serum in the market.

  
Let me introduce you to another HA serum that I’m fond of: Dr Jart Most Moist Water Up Serum.

What is it?

It’s a gel serum that said to have 15% micromolecular HA that will give skin extra boost of hydration hence giving the skin enough cushion so it looks plumper and bouncy.

What’s in it?

Aqua (Water), Propanediol, Glycereth-26, Glycerin, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Butylene Glycol, Equisetum Arvense Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Methylparaben, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Hibiscus Esculentus Fruit Extract, Cereus Grandiflorus (Cactus) Flower Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Carbomer, Parfum (Fragrance), Hexyl Cinnamal, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methyl Propional, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Citronellol, Isoeugenol, Dipropylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitan Isostearate, Xanthan Gum, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hyaluronate, Propylparaben.

How do you use it?

I love to use it like how I use Hydraluron, just before moisturiser and after my serum(s). The gel texture allow me to layer it on top of my other serum(s).

365 in Skincare: My AM Routine when Having Acne Breakout

Kalau mengikuti akun Instagram saya, pasti 2 minggu belakangan ini udah bosen, ya, “dengerin” saya ngeluh masalah jerawatan. Untuk seseorang yang jarang banget jerawatan this is major! Nggak mungkin lah, kalau nggak pernah bermasalah kulitnya. Begitu pula saya. Biasanya sih kalau PMS adalah satu atau dua. Tapi kali ini, begitu hilang satu muncul satu lagi. Gede-gede pula! Sebelnya, jerawat yang timbul bukan jerawat yang ada matanya, tapi jerawat batu. Ini sebenarnya kesalahan saya sendiri, sih.

Awalnya karena mudik ke Malang. Pas mudik ke Malang saya tahu betul kalau di Malang sedang dingin, around 20 degrees. Nah, di antara itu saya sempat ke Blitar, di mana udaranya tidak sama seperti Malang tapi lebih berdebu. Saya sudah siap tempur. Bawa segala macam deep cleansing mask dan juga siap sedia Sunday Riley Artemis dan History of Whoo Soon Hwan Essence karena kedua produk tersebut paling ampuh membantu menyeimbangkan kondisi kulit saya.

Sayangnya, begitu balik ke Jakarta saya mulai lalai dan enak-enakan. Padahl udah di Jakarta sedang panas-panasnya. Yang terjadi adalah dua minggu kemudian mulai deh muncul satu persatu jerawat! Yang paling bikin bete adalah jerawat batu ini sakit banget dan ganggu karena gede banget. Jadinya saya jadi gatel pencet-pencet dan jadilah berbekas dan merusak jaringan kulit *sigh*.

Anyway below are the skincare that I’m using in the morning to tackle this problem.
