Review: Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence

Bismillah...

Assalamualaikum...

Kyaaaaaaaaaaa!
Oh, I'm sorry for screaming in the beginning of post. You know what? I forget to make a review of this product long after I run it out. Hahahaha...

Okay dollies, I'm gonna make a simple post reviewing this best seller essence which is called as a dupe of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence. This essence from Secret Key, a Korean brand, is quite hype around because it has similar benefits as SK-II yet offers the much more affordable price.



PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
  1. 7 Free System: parabens, mineral oil, benzophenone, alcohol, phenoxy alcohol, pigment, incense
  2. Contains 90% pitera
  3. Whitening and brightening
  4. Wrinkle care
  5. Moisturizing
  6. For all skin type
  7. Content 155 ml
Actually there are many beneficial effects of SK STE, including repairing acne prone skin. Thus, here I used this essence to calm my acne down.

SK STE comes with heavy glass bottle which design is similar to SK-II FTE, simple yet elegant. The bottle is not travel handy since it might break if falls off of grasp. Regular bottle with small hole so we have to pour the product out to the palm.



The consistency is almost like water but heavier. It's lighter compared to FTE which has more concentrate texture. Two to four drops of STE is an appropriate amount to be applied all over face. It smells like pitera, sake, or something like that. I had cool sensation when applying this essence. Don't forget to apply toner before essence so that the essence can be absorbed real well.

REVIEW:
STE couldn't help my acne problem :( But the significant effect that I barely felt is my skin become smoother and brighter. Yeah! \m/ It also moisturized yet didn't get my skin oilier. I recommend this essence for those who have minim problems on skin since people whose skin in serious condition won't get enough treatment. But if used by pairing with other skincare products, it's better... :)

That's all the review from my point of view. Hope it helps... Bye... ^^

Review: History of Whoo Jasaeng Essence and Qi Jin Cream

Bismillah...

Assalamualaikum...

Hi ladies... I believe (yeah I'd checked it by myself) there is a huge number of History of Whoo reviews swarming on internet. Today, I think I should enliven the reviews but with different sight from them who are very satisfied with this high end products.

I'm not gonna tell you about this brand since you might have already known the information of. They say History of Whoo is one of high end brand in Korea, therefore the price is quite expensive (for me it's too expensive). Since people most likely can't afford to buy the full size which costs about in million, thank God the sample size is very helpful... Yeahh!! \m/

Okay, let's go on to the review.

First is Jasaeng Bichup Essence.


It's known effectively to heal inflammation caused by acne scarring, sensitive skin, and acne problem. Most bloggers said it worked out on acne although we had to experience purging on about 2-3 weeks prior. Weks! I tried this essence, early two weeks there's no problem even though I knew the bumps started to come out but it didn't bug me after all. Running three weeks, I moved to Jakarta in which the pollution and sun rays hit me, my skin was getting worse. Acne emerged fast and was that big, painful, and swollen. Arrrggghhhh! And now, because of always experimenting with new skincare product every time the mood stirred up everything, I'm even scared looking at my face reflection! I hate those skincare products which say purging in the first stage!

The texture of Jasaeng essence is like light mucous, looks sticky but when applied all over face, it blends and is absorbed easily, there's no sticky greasy oily feeling. The color is yellowish and has herb aroma.

Second is Qi Jin cream.


Believe me, this cream is very thick and rich with off white color. Smells like peanut. Yuck! I think this cream is supposed to be used for those who have very dry flaky skin.

Hah, I don't know, even I can't find any positive result using this cream since I paired it up with Jasaeng essence which broke me out.

I'm sorry, no review of very long line as you might expect since these products seems not suitable for my skin.

Thank you for reading and you can find many further information of History of Whoo products on the other sites that are more competent.

Bye... ^^

The Reasons to Break Up Your Boyfriend

Bismillah..
Assalamualaikum..

Before we go on to the main object of this post, let me first tell you. Yesterday I got my room cleaned up because I moved from boarding house to home. Yeah, fyi, I'd graduated from university and it's time to go back home. When cleaning my room, I found many papers and assignments when I studied for 5 years. Haha...and I found this interesting paper and read the content. Trust me, it's weird and I'm unsure that it was my assignment paper that was assessed with "EXCELLENT" mark. Why is it weird? Because I doubt whether this article was copied elsewhere on internet or not. Yeah, how could a sophomore write that amazing article? Even now I don't have such a big idea to write that. It's absolutely weird lol~

Yeah, I still had student number lol~
If it's copied from internet, shame!

The matter whether I copied or not, it's so much useful to re-post my writing assignment. So, here we go~

The Reasons to Break Up Your Boyfriend


Breaking up the boyfriend is not easy thing to do because we have ever undergone the unforgettable moments with him. In a failed relationship, of course there is a pain. However, if we cannot effort the relationship, it will be better to stop. To break him up well as we have accepted him well, we have to be ready for these reasons to break him up.

Playboy. This first reason is the common thing why girls break up their boyfriend. There is no advantage having relationship with such guy. Even he just hurt you because he likes to date with another girl. Best of the best way if we know our boyfriend is playboy is saying goodbye for him.

The second common reason is materialistic. Not only girls, but also boys like to make their girlfriend broke. Materialistic guy will never be a hero because he is not responsible as a boy. Leave him but try to tell him to have girlfriend like Paris Hilton or Nicole Richie.

There is no girl who likes to be hurt physically. It is very terrible having boyfriend such the killer guy. He is easily to get angry with you if you make mistakes, even little mistakes. He can hit and fist you, and make you black and blue. This situation is not good for you.

Hello girls, it is time for you to decide where you will go on your relationship with your boyfriend who is such three types above. Do not be sad because there are many good and nice guys outside. But, remember, don't accept them who like hurt girls. Find out the real good boy for your future. If you get a good one, do not hurt him and treat him well. Good luck, gals!

Review: Sigma F60 Foundation Brush

Bismillah..

Assalamualaikum..

To be honest, it's my first experience of using brush for applying foundation/BB cream/concealer since I used to use fingertips and unbranded sponge. I watched many make up tutorial and found that using brush for foundation application is easier and even without clumping. Moreover, brush does not absorb makeup. Therefore, I bought this Sigma F60 foundation brush from Make Me Blush travel kit.


Product Description
F60 - foundation: Smooth foundation application. Apply liquid or cream products such as foundation and primer.
Dimension: 15 cm

REVIEW
Since it's my first time using foundation brush, I'm just too fool to apply foundation with this brush. lol~ IMO, the bristles is soft yet dense. What I dislike from this brush is the density because it absorbs much product so that it dispenses small amount of foundation. If only the bristles was not as dense, I would love it more.

Something that broke me down is I experienced the shedding. Kyaaaa! The very first time I applied BB cream using this brush, a bristle shed. Since Sigma is a very well-known brush with its goodness (the price talks more), I actually blame myself because I was powerful when blending BB cream with this brush. That's why it shed a bit.




For me, foundation brush is not a big deal. I prefer to use clean fingers and sponge to apply foundation and concealer. However, if used correctly, I mean tapping the concealer on, the result is good. So? It is all about me of being fool using foundation brush. Hahaha...

Oh ya, I don't know exactly whether it's made from natural or synthetic hair. Whatever it is, I think the natural hair brushes are better if it comes to the face. Yeah..just personal opinion..

What I love the most of this foundation series is the color. Look, the handle is coral pink. I loooove pink ♥ And since it's from travel kit, the length is not that long so it's suitable for traveling, and of course, for petite girl like me.

PROS:
  1. Soft bristles
  2. Easy to use
  3. Travel handy
  4. Coral pink colored handle
CONS:
  1. Dense/compact
  2. Sheds (just a biiiiiiit)

That's the review. I hope it helps... Bye...

The Greatest Happiness

Bismillah..

Assalamualaikum..

I want to re-post my old post about the greatest happiness in my version :)

Surah at-Tahrim 8

What do you think of when you hear the word "happiness"? Do you think it's having a lot of money, fame, having everything you need, or surrounded by your loved ones? Hmm...all of that is true...

Nevertheless, I personally think that happiness is when I got the guidance of Allah subhanallahu wa taala, when He led me on a straight path. A gratitude that will never be endless to say. Alhamdulillah...

I feel so much blessed when Allah opened my heart to learn more about Islam, self-repair, try to be a soleha woman, and hijab. Of course, along with all these blessings, Allah also gives the heavier tests. There's a moment when I was weak and my faith was in the lowest level, but Allah is always with me, He gets me up. Again, if we notice, too many blessings than trials Allah gives. Thus, there's no reason to be sad over the past or His tests. There's wisdom behind all the trials. Pray and pray. Dua and dua. Allah has the best plan for us.

Thank you for those who said (and believed) I've changed a lot. If it's good for Allah, then it's good for the entire world.

10 Kiat Tegar Menghadapi Cobaan

Oleh Ustadz Muhammad Abdu Tuasikal Hafidzahullah  
Mengarungi kehidupan pasti seseorang akan mengalami pasang surut. Kadang seseorang mendapatkan nikmat dan kadang pula mendapatkan musibah atau cobaan. Semuanya datang silih berganti. Kewajiban kita adalah bersabar ketika mendapati musibah dan bersyukur ketika mendapatkan nikmat Allah. Berikut adalah beberapa kiat yang bisa memudahkan seseorang dalam menghadapi setiap ujian dan cobaan.

Pertama: Mengimani takdir ilahi

Setiap menghadapi cobaan hendaklah seseorang tahu bahwa setiap yang Allah takdirkan sejak 50.000 tahun sebelum penciptaan langit dan bumi pastilah terjadi. Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersabda,


كَتَبَ اللَّهُ مَقَادِيرَ الْخَلاَئِقِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَخْلُقَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ بِخَمْسِينَ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ

“Allah telah mencatat takdir setiap makhluk sebelum 50.000 tahun sebelum penciptaan langit dan bumi.”[1]

Beriman kepada takdir, inilah landasan kebaikan dan akan membuat seseorang semakin ridho dengan setiap cobaan. Ibnul Qayyim mengatakan, “Landasan setiap kebaikan adalah jika engkau tahu bahwa setiap yang Allah kehendaki pasti terjadi dan setiap yang tidak Allah kehendaki tidak akan terjadi.” [2]

Kedua: Yakinlah, ada hikmah di balik cobaan

Hendaklah setiap mukmin mengimani bahwa setiap yang Allah kehendaki pasti ada hikmah di balik itu semua, baik hikmah tersebut kita ketahui atau tidak kita ketahui.[3] Allah Ta’ala berfirman,

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ (115) فَتَعَالَى اللَّهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ (116)

“Maka apakah kamu mengira, bahwa sesungguhnya Kami menciptakan kamu secara main-main (saja), dan bahwa kamu tidak akan dikembalikan kepada Kami? Maka Maha Tinggi Allah, Raja Yang Sebenarnya; tidak ada Tuhan selain Dia, Tuhan (Yang mempunyai) 'Arsy yang mulia.” (QS. Al Mu’minun: 115-116)

Allah Ta’ala juga berfirman,

وَمَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا لَاعِبِينَ (38) مَا خَلَقْنَاهُمَا إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ

“Dan Kami tidak menciptakan langit dan bumi dan apa yang ada antara keduanya dengan bermain-main. Kami tidak menciptakan keduanya melainkan dengan haq.” (QS. Ad Dukhan: 38-39)

Ketiga: Ingatlah bahwa musibah yang kita hadapi belum seberapa

Ingatlah bahwa Nabi kita shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam sering mendapatkan cobaan sampai dicaci, dicemooh dan disiksa oleh orang-orang musyrik dengan berbagai cara. Kalau kita mengingat musibah yang menimpa beliau, maka tentu kita akan merasa ringan menghadapi musibah kita sendiri karena musibah kita dibanding beliau tidaklah seberapa. Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam bersabda,


لِيَعْزِ المسْلِمِيْنَ فِي مَصَائِبِهِمْ المصِيْبَةُ بي

“Musibah yang menimpaku sungguh akan menghibur kaum muslimin.”[4]

Dalam lafazh yang lain disebutkan,


مَنْ عَظَمَتْ مُصِيْبَتُهُ فَلْيَذْكُرْ مُصِيْبَتِي، فَإِنَّهَا سَتَهَوَّنُ عَلَيْهِ مُصِيْبَتُهُ

“Siapa saja yang terasa berat ketika menghapi musibah, maka ingatlah musibah yang menimpaku. Ia tentu akan merasa ringan menghadapi musibah tersebut.”[5]

Keempat: Ketahuilah bahwa semakin kuat iman, memang akan semakin diuji

Dari Mush’ab bin Sa’id -seorang tabi’in- dari ayahnya, ia berkata,


يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَىُّ النَّاسِ أَشَدُّ بَلاَءً

“Wahai Rasulullah, manusia manakah yang paling berat ujiannya?” Beliau shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam menjawab,

« الأَنْبِيَاءُ ثُمَّ الأَمْثَلُ فَالأَمْثَلُ فَيُبْتَلَى الرَّجُلُ عَلَى حَسَبِ دِينِهِ فَإِنْ كَانَ دِينُهُ صُلْبًا اشْتَدَّ بَلاَؤُهُ وَإِنْ كَانَ فِى دِينِهِ رِقَّةٌ ابْتُلِىَ عَلَى حَسَبِ دِينِهِ فَمَا يَبْرَحُ الْبَلاَءُ بِالْعَبْدِ حَتَّى يَتْرُكَهُ يَمْشِى عَلَى الأَرْضِ مَا عَلَيْهِ خَطِيئَةٌ »

“Para Nabi, kemudian yang semisalnya dan semisalnya lagi. Seseorang akan diuji sesuai dengan kondisi agamanya. Apabila agamanya begitu kuat (kokoh), maka semakin berat pula ujiannya. Apabila agamanya lemah, maka ia akan diuji sesuai dengan kualitas agamanya. Seorang hamba senantiasa akan mendapatkan cobaan hingga dia berjalan di muka bumi dalam keadaan bersih dari dosa.”[6]

Kelima: Yakinlah, di balik kesulitan ada kemudahan

Dalam surat Alam Nasyroh, Allah Ta’ala berfirman,


فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا

“Karena sesungguhnya sesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan.” (QS. Alam Nasyroh: 5)

Ayat ini pun diulang setelah itu,

إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا

“Sesungguhnya sesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan.” (QS. Alam Nasyroh: 6). Qotadah mengatakan, “Diceritakan pada kami bahwa Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam pernah memberi kabar gembira pada para sahabatnya dengan ayat di atas, lalu beliau mengatakan,

لَنْ يَغْلِبَ عُسْرٌ يُسْرَيْنِ

“Satu kesulitan tidak mungkin mengalahkan dua kemudahan.”[7]

Keenam: Hadapilah cobaan dengan bersabar

'Ali bin Abi Tholib radhiyallahu ‘anhu mengatakan,


الصَّبْرُ مِنَ الإِيْمَانِ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الرَّأْسِ مِنَ الجَسَدِ، وَلَا إِيْمَانَ لِمَنْ لاَ صَبْرَ لَهُ.

“Sabar dan iman adalah bagaikan kepala pada jasad manusia. Oleh karenanya, tidak beriman (dengan iman yang sempurna), jika seseorang tidak memiliki kesabaran.”[8]

Yang dimaksud dengan bersabar adalah menahan hati dan lisan dari berkeluh kesah serta menahan anggota badan dari perilaku emosional seperti menampar pipi dan merobek baju.[9]

Ketujuh: Bersabarlah di awal musibah

Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam bersabda,


إِنَّمَا الصَّبْرُ عِنْدَ الصَّدْمَةِ الأُولَى

“Yang namanya sabar seharusnya dimulai ketika awal ditimpa musibah.”[10] Itulah sabar yang sebenarnya. Sabar yang sebenarnya bukanlah ketika telah mengeluh lebih dulu di awal musibah.

Kedelapan: Yakinlah bahwa pahala sabar begitu besar

Ingatlah janji Allah,


إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّابِرُونَ أَجْرَهُمْ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ

“Sesungguhnya hanya orang-orang yang bersabarlah yang dicukupkan pahala mereka tanpa batas.” (QS. Az Zumar: 10). Al Auza’i mengatakan, “Pahala bagi orang yang bersabar tidak bisa ditakar dan ditimbang. Mereka benar-benar akan mendapatkan ketinggian derajat.” As Sudi mengatakan, “Balasan orang yang bersabar adalah surga.”[11]

Kesembilan: Ucapkanlah “Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rooji'un ...”

Ummu Salamah -salah satu istri Nabi shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam- berkata bahwa beliau pernah mendengar Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam bersabda,

أُمَّ سَلَمَةَ زَوْجَ النَّبِىِّ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- تَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- يَقُولُ « مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ تُصِيبُهُ مُصِيبَةٌ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِى فِى مُصِيبَتِى وَأَخْلِفْ لِى خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِلاَّ أَجَرَهُ اللَّهُ فِى مُصِيبَتِهِ وَأَخْلَفَ لَهُ خَيْرًا مِنْهَا ». قَالَتْ فَلَمَّا تُوُفِّىَ أَبُو سَلَمَةَ قُلْتُ كَمَا أَمَرَنِى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- فَأَخْلَفَ اللَّهُ لِى خَيْرًا مِنْهُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم-.

“Siapa saja dari hamba yang tertimpa suatu musibah lalu ia mengucapkan: “Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rooji'un. Allahumma'jurnii fii mushibatii wa akhlif lii khoiron minhaa [Segala sesuatu adalah milik Allah dan akan kembali pada-Nya. Ya Allah, berilah ganjaran terhadap musibah ang menimpaku dan berilah ganti dengan yang lebih baik]”, maka Allah akan memberinya ganjaran dalam musibahnya dan menggantinya dengan yang lebih baik.” Ketika, Abu Salamah (suamiku) wafat, aku pun menyebut do'a sebagaimana yang Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam perintahkan padaku. Allah pun memberiku suami yang lebih baik dari suamiku yang dulu yaitu Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam.”[12]

Do'a yang disebutkan dalam hadits ini semestinya diucapkan oleh seorang muslim ketika ia ditimpa musibah dan sudah seharusnya ia pahami. Insya Allah, dengan ini ia akan mendapatkan ganti yang lebih baik.

Kesepuluh: Introspeksi diri

Musibah dan cobaan boleh jadi disebabkan dosa-dosa yang pernah kita perbuat baik itu kesyirikan, bid’ah, dosa besar dan maksiat lainnya. Allah Ta’ala berfirman,

وَمَا أَصَابَكُمْ مِنْ مُصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ

“Dan apa saja musibah yang menimpa kamu maka adalah disebabkan oleh perbuatan tanganmu sendiri.” (QS. Asy Syura: 30). Maksudnya adalah karena sebab dosa-dosa yang dulu pernah diperbuat.[13] Ibnu ‘Abbas mengatakan, “Akan disegerakan siksaan bagi orang-orang beriman di dunia disebabkan dosa-dosa yang mereka perbuat, dan dengan itu mereka tidak disiksa (atau diperingan siksanya) di akhirat.”[14]

Semoga kiat-kiat ini semakin meneguhkan kita dalam menghadapi setiap cobaan dan ujian dari Allah.

20 Ways to Keep Your Husband’s Love ♥

20 Ways to Keep Your Husband’s Love ♥


1. Nothing works like du’ah, and love only exists between spouses where Allah instills it. Ask Allah to strengthen and preserve the bonds of compassion and love between the two of you, every day, every prayer.

2. Dress pleasantly/attractively. If you are a home-maker, don’t stay in your sleeping suit all day.

3. Smell good!

4. Don’t lay out all your problems on your husband as soon as he walks in. Give him a little mental break.

5. Be kind to your mother-in-law the same way you would like your husband to be kind to your own mother.

6. Learn all the rights and obligations of each other in Islam. Focus on fulfilling your obligations, not demanding your rights.

7. Race to the door when he comes home, as if you were waiting for him. Smile and hug him.

8. Keep your house clean, at least to the level that he wants it.

9. Tell him he’s the best husband ever.

10. Call his family often.

11. Encourage him to do good deeds.

12. If he’s in a bad mood, give him some space. He’ll get over it, inshaAllah.

13. Thank him sincerely for providing you with food and shelter. It’s a big deal.

14. If he’s angry with you and starts yelling, let him yell it out while you’re quiet. You will see your fight will end a lot faster. Then when he’s calm, you can tell him your side of the story and how you want him to change something.

15. Let him chill with his friends without guilt, especially if they’re good guys. Encourage him to go out, so he doesn’t feel “cooped up” at home.

16. If your husband is annoyed over a little thing you do (and you can control it), then stop doing it. Really.

17. Don’t get mad over small things. It’s not worth it.

18. Learn to make his favorite dish.

19. Don’t ever, EVER talk bad about him with friends or family unnecessarily. If they end up agreeing with you, you will see that it hits you back in the face because you get more depressed that you have a bad husband–and other people also think you have a bad husband.

20. Don’t EVER compare your husbands to other husbands! For example don’t say, “well her husband doesn’t do that, why do you …” (thats a killer!)
