[REVIEW]: NURISH ORGANIQ 24K GOLD SERIES

Hello, lovely readers how have you been doing? Took a very long break from the blog as I already return to office and pretty busy with other things on weekend. Well, I’m pretty sad to see the current news that the infected people of Covid-19 in Indonesia has surpassed the numbers in mainland China. Day by day the number keep rising. We do all know, that some places are already open in order to help running our economy in some sectors. However, please when doing all your activities outside home, do apply the protocol from Government. 

Oke, now let’s get back to the topic that I wanna share with you all today, but lemme ask first. Who’s in here doesn’t like gold? I guess everyone does love, especially ladies. And what do you think if gold is one of the main ingredients on your skincare? Either you’ll be happy to use it every day because you know the result will be amazing or you just keep it on your skincare shelves and use it some time. I was so excited when Clozette Indonesia sent me the package of Nurish Organiq 24K Gold Series to try on as this series formulated with colloidal golds. 


A bit glance of the brand, Nurish Organiq is a Malaysian brand and Halal certified. They created products using 100% natural extracts as well as organic ingredients. This 24K Gold Series are for the Anti-Aging treatment that specialize treated for busy women. As women get mature, they might possibly reduce the skin elasticity and quality. In order to maintain to have the good skin, healthy lifestyle must be implemented and use the right skin care. Therefore, Nurish Organiq comes with this Anti-Aging series where all of the products are formulated with :
- Aqua Collagen : helps you in reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- 24K Gold : improve skin elasticity
- Pomegranate : known as the natural anti-oxidants and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 
- Multivitamin (B, C & E) : reduce pigmentation and black spots
- Hexapeptide : slow down the aging process 

Beside the above ingredients, it also completed with Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid and Ascorbyl Glucoside. This range also have the same fragrance which quite strong for my nose except for the Eye Serum which there’s no intense fragrance. I’ve been trying these products for nearly 2 weeks, so now let’s get down to the products one by one. 
    
24K GOLD DEEP CLEANSING MILK

PACKAGING
Act as the first cleanser, this cleansing milk is housed in plastic bottle pump with flowery labels that cover the body bottle. I like the pump kind of packaging when it comes into cleansers, it’s so practical that you only need secs to let the product out from the bottle. It contains 100ml with retailed price IDR 69,000.  

                      

TEXTURE, FORMULA & IMPRESSION
This cleansing milk is my most favourite product from this series. It has white milky texture and I like how soft the texture is when it touches my skin. I use two pumps every time I wear makeup, it wipes away nicely the makeup and dirt after long day activity. But I need extra gentle massage on the eyes area in removing eyeliner or mascara, or I will just use makeup remover to ensure my eyes area are clean from the concealer, powder or whatever I have put in.

After use this cleansing milk, my skin feels so soft and clean. Besides, ever since it contains Hyaluronic Acid, I feel no dryness on my skin, which it’s absolutely good for my dry skin.

TEXTURE, FORMULA & IMPRESSION
This toner claims to give your skin hydration, refines pores as well as refresh the skin. It has light watery consistency. Because of its consistency, this toner can be used in many ways, as hydrating toner by pour it onto your palm, as cleansing toner by using cotton pad or place it on spray bottle and you can use it as face mist.

After religiously use it day and night, I feel this toner doesn’t give my skin enough hydration. I’ve tried using 3 layers of it and within in a minute it sinks fast to my skin. I feel like I haven’t used any hydrating toners. However, it’s still pleasing to use as cleansing toner and face mist, my skin feels so refresh afterwards.

The next remaining 3 products also comes with the card box. In one bottle consists of 20ml of face essence and they sell it on store for IDR 159,000. 


TEXTURE, FORMULA & IMPRESSION
The Face Essence is my second favourite from 24K Gold series after the Cleansing Milk. It has lightweight consistency with a texture like gel. I use two pumps each use for face and down to my neck area. I love how this essence works, it well absorbs into my skin and leave me non-sticky feeling. I can immediately use my next skincare. My skin feels so moisture and healthy looking once I finish applying.

PACKAGING
Weighted for 15ml, this eye serum is housed in plastic tube. It’s quite small, you even can carry them everywhere and put it on your jeans pocket. You can bring this eye serum home for only IDR 129,000.


TEXTURE, FORMULA & IMPRESSION
This eye serum comes in transparent gel texture with their claim it will help you in reducing dark circles, puffiness and fine lines. I like how this lightweight gel spreads easily around my areas and there’s cooling sensation from this which is so relaxing. My eyes area looks smoother and refresh after use. I use this eye serum only at night, because it doesn’t work well on me underneath makeup.

24K GOLD MOISTURIZING DAY CREAM
                     

PACKAGING
Comes in plastic round jar, this Day Cream is separated with the white plastic lid inside, so makes the cream safe from the direct contact with their yellowish golden jar closure. Unfortunately, there’s no spatula on it. You then need either your fingers to take the cream out (which less hygiene) or find another spatula.  It contains 40ml with price tag IDR 129,000. 

                     

TEXTURE, FORMULA & IMPRESSION
This day cream is formulated with Titanium Dioxide in which already has SPF 25 that helps to protect skin from UVA and UVB rays. The texture is in white thick cream and it has effect in tone up the skin tone, so it gives brighten skin finish in just single use. I only apply this in thin layer since it might cause pilling (which I don’t like it). I also found sometimes it’s hard to absorb if I apply in thick layer.

INGREDIENTS
Water, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Propylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Cetyl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Benzophenone-3, Tribehenin PEG-20 Esters, Cera Alba, Phenyl Trimethicone, Fragrance, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Pentapeptide-18, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Acetyl Heptapeptide-9, Colloidal Gold, Propanediol, Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Disodium EDTA, Aminomethyl Propanol, Hydroxystearic Acid 

                    


24K GOLD MOISTURIZING NIGHT CREAM

PACKAGING
The packaging is exactly the same with Day Cream and what makes it different is only the colour of the jar closure. For night cream, they’re in kind of brown colour. I think they made these in different colours to make it easier for users, in avoiding wrong pick of the cream jar once about to use. This night creams costs for IDR 139,000. 

TEXTURE, FORMULA & IMPRESSION
Surprisingly, the texture of this night cream is almost the same with the face essence. It’s in gel cream texture, easy to spread all over the face and non-sticky. There’s a cooling sensation once applying and I also feel the hydration comes from it. But all the hydration effect doesn’t long lasts, it’s gone by the next morning I wake up, even though I applied quite heavily. As for dry skin person, I always looking for night cream that can gives my skin moisture and hydration during my sleep. On the other hand, this cream claims that can help in reducing wrinkles and fine lines, but I don’t see any changing for that, maybe because I just use it for less than 14 days. Need more time to prove about it. 




INGREDIENTS
Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Sodium Polyacrylate, C18-C21 Alkane, Trideceth-6, Fragrance, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Silica, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Niacinamide, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Pentapeptide-18, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Acetyl Heptapeptide-9, Colloidal Gold, Propanediol, Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA

                            


FINAL THOUGHT
It's somehow pretty fun to use one brand with their one skincare lines in my routine. I like how each of these products compliment each other, so my skin end up happily with what these products offer. What I really notice after some weeks of use is my skin looks brighter than before and my acne scars slowly fading. But for their anti-aging claims, I still don't find any changing or improvement on my problematic area. But that's fine, it's because I just use them for short time. 

If you want to try and experienced this 24K Gold Series, you can easily get them all offline at Guardian store. Or if you don't want to get out because of this Pandemic, worry not, you can get them exclusively online at their Official Store in Shopee. There's also a promo, every purchase of this series with minimum of IDR 150,000 you will get discount for IDR 20,000 by entering code "NURICLZTE". This promo valid until July 31st 2020. 

Happy shopping and see you one my next post.

[REVIEW + SWATCH]: SIMPLYSITI GOLD EDITION 

Hello lovely people ! I'm back again to this blog after a quite long hiatus. To be honest, during self-quarantine for almost 3 months has brought me to laziness in writing. But yeah, staying at home is the least I can do in following the government's policy for minimizing the spreading of the virus. I do really hope the curve can flatten soon so we can go back doing our activities in normal way with no worry. Therefore, keep safe and healthy everyone! 

In this post I'll be sharing makeup products from the collection of SIMPLISITI GOLD EDITION. If you still remember, last year I actually already gave my first impression regarding these products which you can check here. So um yeah, it’s kind of my long overdue complete review ;p So, let's dig in more! 


As you might already know, SIMPLYSITI is Malaysian beauty brand which owned by Malaysian Singer Siti Nurhalizah. This time SIMPLYSITI presents the new makeup series in Gold Edition which consists of Cushion Foundation, Shading Blusher and Matte Lip Cream. This series is using soft-focus technology and speckles of gold dust. The production of these products are done in Korea, so you no need to doubt about their quality. Besides, all their products are Moslem friendly since it certified "Halal". I am so excited with the products as it's my first time trying and using makeup from Malaysian brand.  

GOLD EDITION CUSHION FOUNDATION


PACKAGING

The packaging on this series are dominated in black color with touch of gold which gives a simple yet elegant look in the same time on every pieces. This cushion already completed with micro-aerated puff, a damp sponge with easy absorption giving natural dabbing on skin. The puff has  two different colors on each side, black on top and light cream on the bottom. 


On the back of the packaging you can find the information of its shade, manufacturing date and expired date ( we all need to pay more attention to it).Weighted for 15 gram and retailed for IDR 324,900, this cushion foundation is non-refillable. Means, once you finished the product, you need to repurchase the whole package. Really hope in the future, SIMPLYSITI might consider to produce the refill packaging of this cushion. 


SWATCH, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION
Natural Beige GCF02 
After blend

This cushion foundation comes in 2 shades which are Light Beige GCF01 and Natural Beige GCF02. Mine is in shade GCF02 that suits best with my medium skin tone, not too light and not too dark. I think the shades are truly made for Asian skin tone. It has light texture, like I don't wear any base, with matte glow finisih. I love the natural glows come from my cheek eventho' i don't use any highlighter. Whenever I use this cushion, I like to use setting spray for finishing instead of loose powder. It gives me more natural looks. 

Their coverage is medium as they still can't full cover my blemishes on my cheek. Eventhough they're buildable, I personally not so comfortable wearing too much base as it might look cakey on the area that I want to cover. Because you do know, I want my make up to look as natural as it could. Hence, I prefer to use concealer to help them covered. This cushion already has SPF 25 to care and protect your skin from harmful UV rays. However, if you spend more time outdoor, please do keep use sunscreen underneath.

GOLD EDITION SHADING BLUSHER


PACKAGING

Housed in black glossy square with gold strip for the brand name, this Shading Blusher is so handy. It can fit into your pocket jeans and you're ready to bring this mini palette wherever you go. It already completes with mini brush for the applicator and mirror inside as wide as the size of the packaging. 

Just the same with the Cushion Foundation, the information of the shades as well as production and expired date are rpinted on the back of the packaging. Basically, you can find those information on their gold cardbox. But, i think it's a good things to also put the expiry date on the palette. Because we usually throw away the cardbox right after get the new product and have no idea the expiry date of the product and keep using it.  

SWATCH, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION
GSB01

Only available in 1 shade, GSB01, this Shading Blusher consists of a pink blush and a medium brown bronzer. They're intensely pigmented, blend easily but too powdery. I like the blush as it instantly gives a fresh and radiant look to my day-to-day make up. While for the bronzer, i don't really use it for the contour, instead i use it as eyeshadow becuse the shade is just so natural yet give my eyes look alive. Weighted for 10 gram and priced for IDR 219,900, these shade are for any skin tone.

INGREDIENTS


GOLD EDITION MATTE LIP CREAM

PACKAGING

The packaging of this Lip Cream is so simple in transparent plastic tube with black cap and precise tip applicator (helps avoid bleeding). And since it's the gold edition, they also put gold sticker on the packaging but it scratches and fades out easily. This small packaging Lip Cream retailed for IDR 187,900.  
  
SWATCH, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION
Primrose Pink GML03
My daily look would not go complete without a touch of lip color. This Lip Cream comes in 5 shades and mine is Primrose Pink GML03. I'm in love with the shade! It's a perfect soft pink that suit for my simple natural everyday look. Formulated with bees wax, this lip cream glides smoothly on my lips. It's pigmented, matte finish and a bit sticky. Somehow, i feel it's too dry eventhough they put Vitamin E as one of the ingredient. It's not longwear, as i need to reapply them after my meal. But still ok.  

INGREDIENTS

Isododecane, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Diisostearyl Malate, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance, Benzotriazolyl Dodecyl P-Cresol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate.
May Contain (+/-): CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77499, CI 77492, CI 45410, CI 15850, CI 15985.

FINAL VERDICT 
Final look using Simplysiti Gold Edition

I never get bored trying and playing with makeup, because it's something can bring me happiness.  I can create the look that I wanted based on my mood that time. And as for daily makeup, I like this to be practical and simple, since i most of the time being rush every morning to office. I personally love these Gold Edition except for the Matte Lip Cream, as it's too dry for my lips and too sticky. But, the Cushion Foundation and Blusher Shading has stolen my heart, their formulas suit for my dry skin and the finish look given. Not to forget to mention, these 3 products are travel friendly that you only need small pouch to carry them all.  



Eventhough we all have to stay at home and you really want to try this SIMPLYSITI Gold Edition products, worry not because you can find them online on their official webstore or market place such as Shopee and Tokopedia. So, that's all for my full review for SIMPLYSITI products, hope you like it and see you on the next post.
