L'Oreal Hydrafresh Gel&Foam

Back with the new thing to discuss! Recently, I was trying a new product. In my old post, I said that a long time ago, my skin got super dry and I can't even wear powder because the powder will break down because of my dry skin.

So, I used Skinfood Lettuce&Cucumber Emulsion and it showed a good progress and heal my dry skin. I used it everyday after shower and it made my skin became really moist. Then, I was planning to purchase another one because mine was almost empty.

But when I went to purchase it, they did not have stock for the emulsion. They only have the cream and other emulsion. Also, to be honest, their price is really expensive :O
It is about IDR 400 or around 40$ only for 1 bottle of emulsion. Because of it is so expensive and what I'm searching for is out of stock, I tried to use another product.

My friend told me to use L'Oreal because she is also using it. So, I went to buy it and my friend told me that L'Oreal usually divide their products in two side which is a cream for day and cream for night. So, I was confused because there are too many cream and it will be super expensive too.

But when I went to there, I was confused to buy a cream for dry skin or oily skin, so I told her that actually I have oily skin type but everytime I took shower, my face will become stiff and dry. So, she told me to use their Hydrafresh Gel. It is for oily skin but it will also hydrate the skin so the skin will not get dry.

The good news is that for Hydrafresh, L'Oreal combine day and night into 1 product. So, I don't need to purchase cream for day and cream for night because this products can be used for day and for night. So, I purchased and tried it.

My first impression of the packaging is good. Because the packaging is made from glass and the color which is blue also looks really nice. 

This is what it looks like when you open it. It has lid and I like the packaging so far because it looks neat and clean.

Well yeah, I changed my mind after look what's inside. The packaging is bad in my opinion because it makes the gel becomes really messy. When I close the lid, the gel will spread out and make it sticky everywhere. So, I really do not like the packaging.

Sorry if the photo is a little bit blurry but this is the consistency of the gel. It is sticky but when you applied it into your face and spread it, it will make your skin becomes so smooth. Put the gel on your face and spread it gently then tap you face slowly. It will make your skin becomes really smooth and moist.

♥ This product claims:
• Micro Sponges: Absorbs excess sebum/oil and prevent perspiration & shine • 8X More concentrated in Zinc: Helps to regulate sebum production • Ocean Deep Water: Provide hydration and prevent water loss,4X More Hydration • ALL DAY HYDRATION: Reduces shine from oily to combination skin

• A light weight skin-cooling texture: Brings an instant ocean splash to your skin, locking in a reserve of hydration and freshness.

• Controls your skin temperature: To prevent perspiration and shine.

• Zinc and Micro Sponge technology: Regulates the sebum and inhibits excessive oil production to bring an immediate Mattifying action.

♥ To sum up, here's my review 
- It gives you matte finishing but hydrate your skin
- It heals my super dry skin
- It doesn't make your face oily at all. (Seriously, when I'm using this cream, I don't get oily at all)

- Bad packaging & not hygienic

So, because the gel is really good in my opinion, I also bought the creamy foam of this Hydrafresh also. MUAHAHAHA :D

This is the packaging of the creamy foam. I like the packaging and this time for real, the packaging looks so good :OO
With the matte look and blue color really suits it well! :DDD

This is the consistency of the foam. So, when you squeeze it out, the foam will be like a gel. You just need to squeeze it a bit and it can fit for your whole face :OO

The texture is just like the name. It is really creamy and sticky. But once you wash them away, your skin will be super moist and good! I use the creamy foam along with the gel and I don't have to worry again with my dry skin!

It is seriously make your skin becomes smooth and moist. Well, for my opinion, I do like this gel and also the foam.

Okay everyone this is all my review about this baamm cream and foam from L'Oreal. Hope it will help! Have a good day :)

"DOMICILE" Kitchen&Lounge - SURABAYA

"DOMICILE" Kitchen&Lounge

After a really long time curious about this place, I finally went to this place. DOMICILE is actually a resto-cafe and very popular these days. 

Lots of people said that this place is actually the best lounge in Surabaya because not only the place is great but also their food are tasty.

So, yesterday, for celebrating my friend's birthday, we went there. Unfortunetly, we went here at night so the view is not that great for me. Their place's decoration is actually really classy because they put lots of gigantic window in everywhere.

Because of that, it makes a wonderful view at morning. But that doesn't mean that the view are bad at night. But, in the night, they didn't put much light for the room and that's why I don't really like going there at night.

Because it was a bit dark, I didn't take photos of their building. But, you can search it in google and you will find lots of pictures of DOMICILE.

So, let's get into the food!! ^oo^

For, the appetizer unfortunetly I didn't know the name of it because my friend order it by herself. 

The right side are oninon rings and the left side are like some kinda fish bites. They are salty and chewy. The taste are tasty for me and a good companion for the food or if you want a little bit snacking, this is definitely the answer :D

Black Ink Fettucine Seafood White Cream (80k)

This is the best seller of the restaurant at that time and lots of people are craving about it. The texture of the fettucine itself is so chewy and it combines perfectly with the toppings. If you happen to come here, you have to try this.

Sausages Aglio Olio (65k)

The sauce of Aglio Olio itself is actually minced or pressed garlic in olive oil, and chopped parsley or can also be added as a garnish, along with grated parmesan. So, the garlic is very strong and for this sausages aglio olio, it is a little bit spicy because of the pepper. This is also the best pasta in there in my opinion.

Tuna Aglio Olio (75k)

This is actually the same with Sausages Aglio Olio but in here, the pasta is not as spicy as the sausages one. Also, this is one of the most delicious pasta in there in my opinion.

Mushroom Risotto (+/- 90k)

I really forgot the price of the risotto but it is around 80-90k, The texture of the risotto itself is a little bit stiff but it blends well with the mushroom. I don't really like the risotto but some poeple said that this is also best of the menu. 

Cream Chicken and Mushroom Cheese Pizza (70k)

The texture of the pizza itself is very crunchy and the topping is so many. It is very crispy and cruchy on the crust but chewy on the inside. The pizza is very good!!

Greentea Shake (35k)

Vanilla Shake (35k)

Virgin Mojito (35k)

Mandarin Blues (35k)

Greentea Shake is actually really good for matcha lovers out there because the taste of the matcha is really strong and it blended with milk. So, for the sweet lovers, this is actually a good choice for you.

It is also the same with the Vanilla Shake. The milk flavour is really strong and this drink is really sweet. It is really perfect for the sweet lovers.

Unfortunetly, that day I was sick and I was unable to taste the virgin mojito and the mandarin blues. But I bet they taste great too!

So, enough with the food.. In here, there are so many great places to take a picture. The interior is really great and fancy. Before you go home, don't forget to take picture under the DOMICILE name near the restroom! :p
