Adakah di sini yang suka pakai vitamin C serum?  Atau baru pertama kali dengar?  Active skincare memang sedang nge-booming banget sejak berbagai jenis brand memproduksi.  Nggak usah jauh-jauh, skincare junkie pasti mengenal brand Dear Klairs, Paula’s Choice, TIAM, dan lain sebagainya.

Rata-rata setiap orang yang akan atau sudah memakai vitamin C serum memiliki tujuan ingin mengencangkan dan melembapkan kulit, menghilangkan bekas jerawat dan noda hitam, serta mencerahkan warna kulit. Tapi, apakah memang vitamin C serum seajaib itu?


Bagi yang sebelumnya pernah baca postingan saya tentang pentingnya mengenal pH Kulit, AHA, BHA, dan vitamin C (klik di sini untuk baca!), tentunya sudah hapal dengan ngeyelnya saya terkait pentingnya second cleanser yang memiliki pH rendah dan bagus.  Kenapa sih, kayaknya ngotot banget kalau udah ngomongin terkait sabun cuci muka atau facial wash?


Sebelumnya, saya sudah pernah posting mengenai Korean Skincare Routine of Layering dalam versi bahasa Inggris. Melihat minat pembaca Indonesia terkait actives  (yang kadang mungkin males nerjemahin bahasa Inggris di otak pas baca artikel, kayak saya ^^;), saya memutuskan membuat posting tentang urutan pemakaian skincare untuk perawatan wajah versi bahasa Indonesia.


Momen paling ngegemesin pasca atau saat menstruasi adalah ketika jerawat bermunculan karena faktor hormon kewanitaan meningkat. Ya, nggak, sih?  Bahkan nih, bagi yang nggak gampang bruntusan atau jerawatan aja udah jadi hal paling nyebelin.  Alasannya udah pasti: gara-gara bekas jerawat yang bikin histeris kebanyakan perempuan!


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.

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.


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!
