Hair, Makeup, and Dress at Grammy Awards 2013 Red Carpet

So we all hear the dress code that enforced to all the nominees & attendees in this year Grammy Awards

"Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible 'puffy' bare skin exposure."

Holly Grail Product Review: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

From Kiehl's Website:

Purely Potent Over-Night Repair.
  • Lightweight, overnight treatment.
  • Regenerates, repairs, and replenishes skin for a smoother, healthier skin.
  • Works with the skin’s natural nocturnal activity when skin is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors to dramatically restore skin.
  • 99.8% naturally-derived and paraben-free.
  • Kiehl’s Insider Tip: Layer over Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate for optimal anti-aging and healthier skin benefits. 


Apply 2-3 drops on cleansed skin. Gently press fingertips to cheeks, forehead, and chin to evenly distribute the application before gently massaging it into the skin. Can be worn alone or under moisturizer.

Main ingredients:

  • Evening Primrose Oil is an effective on skin barrier repair and boosting radiance. 
  • Lavender Essential Oil helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness for a more even look. Creates a brighter and more radiant look to skin. 
  • Squalane is a healing botanical lipid with a high affinity for skin to instantly restore and replenish.

Finally something work for my skin! I have tried a lot of products with sweet promises and yet they didn’t do anything. This Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate works amazing on my skin. After only one use, I already feel the difference it makes. My skin becoming smoother and clearer. After more than a week using it, I can see some acne scars fading, my skin texture improved, my complexion getting better.

They packed it in a beautiful dark blue heavy glass container, dark bottle keeping the ingredients save from a direct light. The pump pipette nicely controls the amount of how much product you want to use. A nice packaging on my vanity table but I think it could be hard to bring on travel.

Usually I use 3-4 drops at night, rub my fingertips a little to spread this serum evenly, and then gently pat it on my face and neck. The texture is not oily, this doesn’t cause a breakout on my oily-acne prone skin, for woman with very dry skin, you might want to add another moisturizer on top of it. Another positive thing is this Kieh’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate smells amazing, a true lavender essential oil smell. Very relaxing.

Overall I am satisfied with this product, I will continue to buy this products because it truly works!

Price: Rp 575.000 for 30 ml

They gave me and my sister a lot of free samples!!!

Cambodian Beauty Treat: Natural Handmade Khmer Soap

Hi Vixen,

Recently I've been trying to incorporating more natural and organic skincare, I'm not fully convert to chemical free products but I think it would be nice if we can reduce the chemicals that we put on our skin on daily basis :)

So about two weeks ago, my sister came home after spending 2-3 weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam. From Cambodia she brought me these little babies, an organic Khmer soaps. I'm sorry I can't provide you the name of the company, I can't read it on the packaging since it is on Khmer alphabet. 

Khmer soaps surrounded by Cambodian Krama, a traditional Khmer garment :)

I have lemongrass, lotus, jasmine, coconut, pineapple, and lily scented soaps. I have used the lemongrass and I love it! smells so fresh and energizing, after this I will use the jasmine, it has a true jasmine scent to it. I think I will enjoy that too.

This soaps lather quite well, it doesn't leave a soapy residue on my skin. I doesn't dry my skin because it contains honey, vegetable oil, and coconut oil, those are nice ingredients for your skin. 

And the packaging? how adorable are they? they are packed individually in circle-shaped bamboo containers. They make me feel bad throwing the packaging...
