    I. Hate. Acne. So. Much.

    Especially cystic acne.

    I suffered from cystic acne last month, 5 acne on my cheek (oh my God)!  Not that I have an acne-prone skin, I usually have acne only when my period comes.  And I only have about 1-2, normally, and it is quite rare having a lot of cystic acne at once.  So… yeah, I was kinda freaked out and took a rush searching for acne holy grail and bought this one 

    For your information, before I got this, I used Pond’s Acne Solution Anti Acne Daily Expert Moisturizer and Tea Tree Oil but it caused the acne spot drying and making flaky skin. There were several reviews about Rojukiss Enca and every blog that I read claimed this one do not make your skin dry.  Well, so this is my version how to treat  cystic acne.

    Rojukiss Enca AC Drying Pinky Powder 

    The packaging itself is from glass bottle. You’ll be surprised by how tiny this product.  It is only 15 ml!  As you take a closer look, there are two types of materials in this transparent bottle: liquid materials and similarly materials pink-colored powder that settles down.

    Ingredients

    Isopropyl Alcohol, Calamine, Water, Glycerin, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Oxide, Camphor, Beta Vulgaris (Beet Root Extract), Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, Portulaca Oleracea Extracea, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Extract, Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, Methylparaben

    What You Should Know About Ingredients

    If you often having acne, you’ll familiar with salicylic acid. Salicylic acid can help clear breakouts and prevent future trouble spots. But it also can make your skin drier. I then look for another acne product and finally found the fact that calamine can also help eliminate acne.

    What is calamine? Calamine lotion is a mixture made from a combination of the two ingredients are zinc oxide and iron oxide. Pink calamine lotion and intangible creamy. In the case of acne, the provision of calamine lotion will absorb excess sebum and make acne sores dry faster. This lotion also has anti-bacterial properties that will prevent acne more and more and getting worse. Voila. 

    Portulaca Oleracea also can help to sooth acne spots immediately. These are 3 key ingredients for how wonderful this product is!

    How To Use

    1. Do not shake the bottle!  It is important to keep the liquid and the powder separate from each other, as it will not work properly.
    2. I usually use Q-tip to apply the powder, just dip slightly the head of Q-tip.  Tap gently to your skin.

    I use this at night (sometimes at noon), the powder is so pink! I ever forgot that I still had several pink dots around my face when suddenly the delivery package man came .  So be careful!

    What This Product Tell Us

    treating cystic acne
    Cystic acne everywhere ^^;

    I was gonna admitted I love it so much, yet I couldn’t because it didn’t work  fantastically to cure cystic acne.  Yeah, what was I expecting anyway, cystic acne is the most evil creature that ever lived on my face .  It took 2 months so my cystic acne be deflated. But I can assure that it worked lovely if you just have papula about 1-3 days.

    Price

    For 15ml is quite pricey.  I bought this from Shopee for Rp 165k.  Wishtrend stop their selling for this, my heart sinks since most online sellers got it from there.  But you also can find it at Hello Sora for higher price.  Actually there is  a similar one like this from Mario Badescu, sold for Rp 350k.  Yes, it has more amount than Rojukiss (29 ml).  Those two have the same effect so it is better to buy the cheaper one 

    Will I Repurchase?

    Will try another.  But have to get this finish first!

    What I Talk About when I Talk About Running Book Cover What I Talk About when I Talk About Running
    Haruki Murakami
    Memoar
    Bentang Pustaka

    Paperback

    Setelah mendedikasikan dirinya untuk menjadi penulis, Haruki Murakami mulai giat berlari supaya tetap fit. Apa yang semula hanya bertujuan sebagai olahraga berubah menjadi kegiatan yang membuatnya terobsesi. Saat berlari, ia tak hanya menemukan kebebasan namun juga pemikiran-pemikiran baru. Pada akhirnya, Murakami memutuskan untuk ikut dalam maraton di kota New York tahun 2005.

    Tak hanya berlatih dan bersiap untuk mengikuti maraton saja, Murakami pun menuliskan pengalamannya tersebut. Hasilnya adalah memoar yang indah tentang obsesinya terhadap menulis dan berlari. Dan, siapa yang menyangka kalau menulis dan berlari punya banyak kesamaan.

    What I Talk About when I Talk About Running adalah karya yang kaya, intim, jenaka, sekaligus filosofis dan mendalam. Haruki Murakami sendiri merupakan salah satu penulis terbaik dunia saat ini, yang telah berkali-kali meraih nominasi Penghargaan Nobel bidang Sastra.

    Beberapa hari ini saya down.  Pake banget. Curhat sedikit, dalam rentang waktu yang tidak begitu jauh naskah novel saya yang terbaru berjudul “Selamat Datang di Toko Kenangan” gagal tembus 2 lomba menulis dan ditolak 1 penerbit.

    Critical Eleven Book Cover Critical Eleven

    Dalam dunia penerbangan, dikenal istilah critical eleven, sebelas menit paling kritis di dalam pesawat—tiga menit setelah take off dan delapan menit sebelum landing—karena secara statistik delapan puluh persen kecelakaan pesawat umumnya terjadi dalam rentang waktu sebelas menit itu. It's when the aircraft is most vulnerable to any danger.

    In a way, it's kinda the same with meeting people. Tiga menit pertama kritis sifatnya karena saat itulah kesan pertama terbentuk, lalu ada delapan menit sebelum berpisah—delapan menit ketika senyum, tindak tanduk, dan ekspresi wajah orang tersebut jelas bercerita apakah itu akan jadi awal sesuatu ataukah justru menjadi perpisahan.

    Ale dan Anya pertama kali bertemu dalam penerbangan Jakarta-Sydney. Tiga menit pertama Anya terpikat, tujuh jam berikutnya mereka duduk bersebelahan dan saling mengenal lewat percakapan serta tawa, dan delapan menit sebelum berpisah Ale yakin dia menginginkan Anya.

    Kini, lima tahun setelah perkenalan itu, Ale dan Anya dihadapkan pada satu tragedi besar yang membuat mereka mempertanyakan pilihan-pilihan yang mereka ambil, termasuk keputusan pada sebelas menit paling penting dalam pertemuan pertama mereka.

    Diceritakan bergantian dari sudut pandang Ale dan Anya, setiap babnya merupakan kepingan puzzle yang membuat kita jatuh cinta atau benci kepada karakter-karakternya, atau justru keduanya.

    “Anyone who is in love is making love the whole time, even when they’re not. When two bodies meet, it is just the cup overflowing. They can stay together for hours, even days. They begin the dance one day and finish it the next, or–such is the pleasure they experience–they may never finish it. No eleven minutes for them.”
    Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
