Review: Allies of Skin Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Hydration Serum | Gin and Glow

Allies of Skin is one of the hottest brand right now, the science-based skincare brand offers products with brilliant active ingredients & amazing formulations to ensure the effectiveness of the active itself & hydration and comfort.

Today I'll be reviewing one of Allies of Skin's product, the Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Serum. I really like the brand because they utilize the best active ingredients, but I didn't know where to get them, so I shoot them a message and they told me they're actually available in Sephora Indonesia.

I remembered making a trip to Sephora a few months ago and I was greeted with 4 Allies of Skin products, I decided to pick this one, making it my first Allies of Skin product.

Review: COSRX Hydrium Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule | Gin and Glow

COSRX's newest launch, the Hydrium line, finally hit Indonesian market around a month ago. The line has 5 products - a toner, 2 moisturizers and 2 ampoules. The line mainly focuses on hydration, so there's some hyaluronic acid products and also some centella asiatica products.

When I first saw it at Sociolla, I was unsure whether to get it or not, simply because I was happy with my skincare routine back then. However, I got more curious everyday until one day, I decided to try just one product from the Hydrium line.

I picked the Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule for several reasons. Initially I wanted to get one of the moisturizers, but the gel cream might be too light and the cream version has coconut oil in it. Believe it or not, I've heard good things about centella asiatica, but I never actually own a product that uses centella as its' main ingredient.

Review: Summer Fridays R+R Masque | Gin and Glow

Summer Fridays popped up in our Instagram feed and immediately stole our hearts. This influencer-founded brand's products are instantly recognizeable by their aluminum squeeze tube packaging.

Summer Fridays masks have been appearing in beauty blogs, YouTube videos and Instagram. The brand itself, founded by Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores, gained popularity when they released their first product, the Jet Lag Mask.

Not long after they released Jet Lag, they released two more masks, R+R and Overtime. Now Summer Fridays has a serum and a cleanser too, but these iconic masks actually launched the brand into stardom.

Today I'm going to review one of their masks, the R+R Mask (or Masque if you're fancy). Since these masks are pretty hard to find here in Indonesia & are quite pricey, I was lucky enough to buy a travel-sized one.
