Starbuck Napkins & Pocky

Yap, i'm talking about Starbuck napkins, not the drinks... Recently when i was browsing MakeupAlly.com i found out that some people are using Starbuck napkins as blotting sheet. They said it work wonders and far more better than Clean&Clear's. So i decided to give it a try...

I grabbed some napkins when i got the chance, err.. i mean when i bought a drink... :p


and... it works!!!

It totally blot all the oil off my face. Now i can save up my money from purchasing any blotting sheet cause this one is absolutely free!!! You guys should try it out too...
Also from MakeupAlly.com, i found out that "Toilet seat covers" can blot oil too. It's so funny for me to think how they discover it. i mean i wouldn't ever think of using toilet seat covers to cover my face. you know what i mean right? hehe.. but after reading those reviews and some raves about it, i think i'm going to try it too.. lol.. but in Indonesia, we hardly find any toilet seat covers..

And for the Pocky!!
i just bought two flavor of pocky yesterday, choco banana and milk. i think they are quite new in Indonesia and i've never tried them before.


i'm not a banana lover, actually i don't really like banana.. but since i'm curious about how it tastes like, i'm giving it a try.... and no, i don't like it, and won't buy it anymore.. it tastes so banana, well.. it is banana flavor.. i like the milk one though, but i think it's too sweet..
The best pocky i've ever tasted are these two:


i bought them when i was in Taiwan. they taste sooo yummy.. i forget what their flavor are, but from the picture, i assume that they are cookie and almond.. sadly that i can't find them anywhere in Indonesia..
there is Pocky Men's too, my brother bought this.. also in Taiwan..


Although it says bitter chocolate, it's not so bitter and not so sweet either.. i think Pocky Men's is not just for men right? cause i quite like it.. lol..

tomorrow i'm going back to my hometown for 2 or 3 weeks. cause it's holiday here in Indonesia and there's my sister's wedding too... hopefully i can still blog when i'm there..

I love Pocky! Have not seen the Pocky Men's here yet. I have tried the toilet seat covers. It was only mediocre to me. I rather use my oil blotting papers. ;) I want to try those Starbucks napkins though!

Have fun in your hometown! :D

Hi Dina!

Oh I remember reading about the Starbucks napkins working well as oil blotting sheets on MUA too! I'm glad you tried it out and showed your readers the pictures because now I see it and believe it! :) Thanks. I never get Starbucks coffee because it's so expensive but maybe... I will go in and grab some napkins! haha

I loooove Pocky and collecting flavors, the cool flavors are hard to find in the U.S. though. Have fun going home, I love weddings. ^^

Pocky's are not sold here in France. We have something similar though, called 'mikado' but it has not as many flavours :(

Stacieee said...

OooO wow starbucks napkins suck up oil??? lol thats amazing to hear =)

Becks said...

mmm pockyssss!!! :) I have used napkins before to blot, from anywhere and everywhere haha and they tend to work okay, I think the only medium that's not really feasible is towels and tissues lol! everything else seems to be fair game

I hate the taste of banannas in some things. They use artificial flavoring and it's awful. I only like fresh banannas and bananna bread and cake.
