3 Face Wash Products Review

Today I’m going to review about 3 face wash products that I used. I choose this topic because I want people who has oily skin, like me, to know what they should use.

ctplThe first one I’m going to review is Cetaphil face wash. I used Cetaphil for a month and I’m quite happy with the result, my acne got smaller, and bye-bye oily skin. Unfortunately, I stopped using Cetaphil because maybe the ingredient is too strong for my sensitive skin. But, it does work on my sister. I’s best for acne and pimples. The ingredients are Cetaphil  eight ingredients: water, cetyl alcohol,propylene en, propylparaben, butylparaben. I’d rate 6/10. The price is really expensive, the last time I bought it for around 90.000 Rupiah, for the price I’d rate 4/10.

The second one is Garnier light complete face wash. I used Garnier light complete for years. The results are good, my face got brighter, and it got rid of my small-pre-‘pimples (I don’t know if that’s a thing), but it stopped working on me, I don’t know why. I think it’s best for brightening your skin. I’d rate 7/10. The price is cheap too, I used to buy it for 18.000 Rupiah.

The last one I’m going to write about is the Himalaya purifying neem face wash. This is the one that I’m still using, I’ve been using Himalaya purifying neem face wash for a year now and I really love this one because it makes my pimples and acne smaller, it made my face feels more fresh, and it tightens my skin (in a good way). In my opinion, it’s best for skin tightening and for more fresh skin. Also, the price is a normal price, I bought it for 21.500 Rupiah. I’d rate 10/10 for the results, 9/10 for the price. But lately I’ve been lazy to wash my face.

The Himalaya purifying neem face wash is the best for the results.

The Garnier light complete face wash is the cheapest.

The Cetaphil can do better at the price.

The Unique Teacher Named Medina Zaharah Onn

Medina Zaharah Onn is a 11 years old girl from Malaysia, she is volunteering as an art teacher for disabled kids with special needs at a foundation called YIREH.

When I saw this video of Medina, I feel like Medina is teaching me (indirectly) to be more patient, more kind, more understanding, more controling, and more trusting. Now I realized that I often get mad with people that I can actually handle and still understands me, I wonder how I would be if I was Medina. I love how Medina is making a connection and interacting with people that have special needs even though its probably hard to communicate with them, and from my reference, communication is the key, she must be a hardworker. From what I saw, Medina is really inspiring, kind, calm, patient, and really mature for kids of her age. From the video I can get that I have to be more understanding. 

When I am older, I plan to join a community that helps people with a mutual problem. Example; people who suffer with hunger, cultures that are almost extinct,  fosters, etc. I want to be the photographer or the videographer, but I also want to help. Hopefully I can talk about this with my cousin that travels to lots of places in Indonesia where or when or what to do so I can start to volunteer.

Jalan-jalan Keliling Bandung

Pada hari Selasa tanggal 28 Agustus 2018, aku dan teman-teman kelasku pergi ke Stasiun Kereta Api Bandung Pintu Utara untuk melakukan sebuah perjalanan kecil. Sebelumnya, tema besar kelas kami adalah Pulau Jawa. Dan, kegiatan ini adalah sebuah latihan untuk perjalanan besar. Kata kakak sih mirip sama perjalanan besar, tapi, hanya perjalanan kecil ini hanya untuk sehari saja, sedangkan perjalanan besar untuk lima hari.

Kami berkumpul di dalam pintu depan Stastiun Kereta Api Bandung Pintu Utara pada jam 7. Dan keluar dari stasiun kereta api pada jam 7.30. Kami keluar dari Jalan Kebon Kawung menuju Jalan Asia Afrika. Kami jalan dari Jalan Kebon Kawung-Jalan Stasiun Timur-Jalan Lembong-Jalan Braga-dan akhirnya sampai di Jalan Asia Afrika.

Dari Jalan Asia Afrika aku dan kelompokku jalan menuju Jalan Banceuy. Selagi jalan ke Jalan Banceuy, Zacky, salah seorang anggota kelompokku bercerita bahwa jembatan penyeberangan yang terletak di Jalan Asia Afria pernah ada orang yang bunuh diri.

Ketika kami berada di Jalan Banceuy, aku mencium bau-bau yang tidak nikmat. Aku mencium bau pipis yang pesing. Dari Jalan Banceuy kami pergi ke Toko Jamu Babah Kuya yang terletak di Jalan Pasar Barat. Mereka memiliki dua toko yang terletaknya sangat dekat dengan satu sama lain. Terdapat di papan toko bahwa Toko Jamu Babah Kuya telah berdiri sejak tahun 1800an. Ketika aku masuk ke dalam gedungnya bau pesing yang dari Jalan Banceuy hilang, semua yang aku cium adalah aroma wangi rempah-rempah. Wanginya sangat enak sehingga aku ingin diam di dalam toko tersebut. Di dalam toko jamu tersebut, kelompokku mewawancara seorang ibu-ibu yang berkerja di toko tersebut tentang warga Jawa yang datang ke Bandung. “Untuk kuliner mungkin?” Jawab si ibu
