Last night on KOI Restaurant I was invited by Kiehl’s to attend their 160th Anniversary with the tittle “160th Years of Service to Our Community”.

Thank you so much for having me here, it’s really a privileged to be here with all of you.

The minute I entered the room the first thing that caught my eyes is “The Mission of Kiehl’s” which is then explained by the KCR.

Explained? Yes! Trough this wall of fames each represent and tells us the milestone of Kiehl’s.

Their first branch, their first perfume, which is Original Musk Oil, the one that also known as Love Potion.

Beside getting to know the products better, I also found out that Kiehl’s was in fact start as a family business which is endearing with how the son (when he is still little) help out by giving samples. Yes, those ‘giving samples habit’ that still runs till now.

Then it’s time to start the event, then played us a video about current Kiehl’s “family” . This is Ms.Jennifer Avancena, the Brand Manager of Kiehl’s Indonesia.

The first Kiehl’s in New York, where the pear tree standing near. The store is known as store by the pear tree corner. When the pear tree is cut down the mayor manage to bring it back for the community.

And for Kiehl’s too, it’s all about the community and giving back. Kiehl’s in Indonesia also join hand and with a couple of public figures to reach the children in need. Giving them donations and help from the customers who donate in each branch plus purchases of Best Seller items.

It feels really difficult not to fall in love with Kiehl’s, I’m officially hooked by their warmth, generosity and efforts.

Then it’s Ms. Dea Karmia’s turn where she deliberate more of those who take part in the Service to Our Community.

3 figures that given awards for each of their contribution. A doctor who ‘s part for children with Autism, a public figure and Ms. Tina Toon for Pansophia.

Meanwhile I can’t help myself from wondering around (no worries, another blog post have been prepared for you regarding all the details provided by Kiehl’s Indonesia). Guess also given a chance to take a picture with the famous skull and print it out. These are moments that I really want to remember. A moment of celebrations for Kiehl’s and I’m so happy they are in Indonesia.

I’ve noticed that Kiehl’s has done so much in the community and everything was done in low profile, bravo!

Love from the people to Kiehl’s Indonesia . . . complain! Not big enough, bigger board next time please ^____^ I think more people want to sign in there.

An exhibit of Kiehl’s 160 year history (neat!)

KCR’s and Ms. Dea, Kiehl’s would not be the same without them. Seriously the best in serving customers.

3 things that Kiehl’s International put emphasis on for the 160th Anniversary

3 products limited edition for the 160th Anniversary: Ultra Facial Cream, Original Musk Oil, and Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner.

Read this interesting fact that Kiehl’s even made it to Smithsonian.

Oh yes, no Kiehl’s event will be completed without a doctor in the house and Mr. Ari (Senior Trainer of Kiehl’s) explaining the need to take care our skin plus some of Kiehl’s up coming products which is Ultra Facial Oil Free and Midnight Recovery Concentrate. The video shown before of the Ultra Facial Oil Free is very cute!!!

And Ms.Tina and the girls are giving us an entertainment with her new single “Cinta Buta”.

Me and Ms. Jenny, she is so pretty and nice.

Then it’s time to congratulate Kiehl’s for their 160th with a big birthday cake.

I raise my glass and cheers for Kiehl’s, hoping that:
1. Kiehl’s keep being warm and genuine in their service.
2. Improving their stuff (maybe some more for me which is scented heehee, sniff sniff)
3. Another 160 years of success and beyond.
4. More action for the community or at least keep up their very good work.
5. Last but not least, keep being a “family” business where’s everyone is a family and everyone is caring one another.

So my lovely readers, don’t ever forget to stop by at any of Kiehl’s branch and try some your self, after all their policy is still the same: Try Before You Buy. That’s why when you come into the store and speaks to the KCR’s (Kiehl’s staff) don’t get intimidated, get some samples!

Details of the products:


Benefits/Effects:
Volume and bounce mousse for lasting support with a silky touch. Incell and pearl protein repair and reinforce sensitized hair fiber. Vitamin E acetate brings protection.

Application: Apply a tangerine-size amount on washed, towel-dried or dried hair. Proceed with blow-drying or style as usual.

My review:

How I use it? On a towel dried hair, an orange size of mouse applied directly to any part bit by bit so it is spread evenly. Then using a thick brush for hair drying, I use a hair dryer and pull the hair outward direction. Unlike without using the mouse my hair now stays bouncy and not flat. I can also use it near the root and it didn’t cause any oiliness on my oily scalp.

Love the volume it creates, the application in the first place also so easy and not sticky. Love the mouse for being so cute, the scent is mild and I can’t hardly feel them after like minutes of application and really, the attention is on the volume it creates and love the tidiness too. It made my hair obey my commands, throughout the day, I just need to comb with my fingers and really, almost any direction and I’m good to go. One of the must have item for your hair styling needs.

On the 28th of September 2011, thanks to Fimela.com (flying kiss to Ms.Nuniek and team), I was able to be inside the Guess for their Fall Winter Collection 2011 which filled with Jeans and reminds me a lot of a good ol’ western movies.

Ms. Ary Kirana as MC start the event with a va va voom look from Guess that’s sexy and fabulous. As always Guess have a thing for gorgeous people from the entertainment industry.

On my recent visit to The Body Shop during their event at Senayan City, I’ve talked to many TBS insiders which told me that The Body Shop have a sample policy for customer, which means all of you who want to try the products and bring them home is permitted. Just go to the staff and ask for sample on certain product you want to try. If they have the sachets, they will hand those sachets to you but if they don’t, containers like above pictures will do. Take note that only thick texture will do, watery products like shampoo and toner will be difficult since it will spill.

The genetic secret to visibly youthful, brighter eyes in 7 days.

Discover the ultimate solution for dark circles, eye bags and fine lines

The genetic secret to visibly youthful, brighter eyes in 7 days. Discover the ultimate solution for dark circles, eye bags and fine lines

Genetic Skincare: The beauty revelation. Your genes produce specific proteins to keep skin looking youthful. This unique patented complex revives the production of youth proteins. Together with a unique ingredient of buckwheat wax, it significantly dimishes eye concerns for visibly rejuvenated results.
Use daily, morning and evening,on cleansed eye area. Blend gently around the eye.


My review:

Honestly, I’m never a fan of any eye cream, just either too lazy or just dislike the feeling of a cream there near my eyes. But looking at the mirror and close up pictures, I’ve noticed there are some lines there and I’m not happy with that. The whole face look young, while the puff and fine lines drag my years. So I decided to use the eye cream every night (heehee, still refuse to do it on day time) plus applied ’em a bit on my lips too.

Genifique Yeux is one of the anti aging range by Lancome that focus on the eyes which is delicate and have a thinner skin than the rest. I will use the product for the whole 7 days and gives you all my further review. First time use review: the cream is thick and yellowish, have a strong sharp scents that when you use a bit, you’ll hardly noticed it, but you’ll definitely feel the warming sensation it does on the eye’s zone. Which also gone in like a minute or so.

I must say I feel pretty much comfortable using Genifique Yeux and will continue using them, meanwhile I will keep reminding my self to take care my own eyes by stop abusing with enough sleep, relax my eyes often, less scratching and reduce unnecessary touching plus be gentler too.

 Do remember to check out this post for updated review in 7 days ^___^ see ya!

12H* UV Protection, Instant Fairness
Like a Fair Silky Glove On The Skin
* Instrumental test

Lancôme now offers a high-performance response to a trend that began in Korea and which is now increasingly in demand by woman all across Asia: blemish balm.This BB base brings skin instant radiance and is more than just a makeup-base. Its shade fits skin tone ideally, corrects skin’s irregularities such as dark spots, unevenness and fine lines. Its silky texture allows it to be used alone or under foundation.

Avoid eye area. In case of contact with eye, rinse immediately and thoroughly.

My review:

First of all I’m a big fan of UV protection that does as a tinted layers on my skin. I love being multifunction as I love stuffs that do multiple tasks too. High sun protection? Checked! Coverage? Checked (even thou’ it’s light), Soft and Smooth result? Checked! What’s not to love?

For me this BB Base is suitable to be used daily, we live in a sunny land so UV protection is a must and this one is pretty high, here’s what they say:

Lancôme invents its first SPF 50 BB Base to protect collagen fibers down to the dermis and instantly visibly brighten skin.

Correct imperfections. The incredibly lightweight texture unifies skin tone to ideally cover imperfections, such as brown spots, blemishes and fine lines.

Protection down to the dermis. The patented filtering system with Mexoryl ® SX & XL recreates a protective shield against UV rays while exclusive UV-proof GN-Shield™ System forms a protective barrier against deep causes of hyperpigmentation and premature ageing, even at the dermal layer.

So there’s a lot of protection provided by them and in a way it keep your skin younger too. How to use it?

The UV Expert range can be used all year round.
Apply in the morning at the end of daily skincare routine.
UV Expert BB base can be used alone at the end of skincare routine or before foundation.

After cleanse your face, tone, serum, moisturize, it’s BB Base time. Now, for me I still need some loose powder for daily use, while on special occasion I’ll need more foundation and compact powder. And that’s it! Take note that the product best to use in the morning, when you start your day, UV protection works best when there’s sun, no need applying them in the night.

Skin Vivo Mask by Biotherm


Details from biothermhk.com:

SKIN VIVO MASK
1st reversive anti-aging expansive mask that fits every woman’s face and gives an instant lifting effect. Each mask has an equivalent concentration to a bottle of Skin Vivo Reversive Serum to restore the DNA-micro damages of inner cells. Immediately, skin is rejuvenated and plumped with lasting radiance. After 4 weeks, 100% of women experience a younger looking skin.

Without further ado I clean up my face to use the mask, take note, you really need to clean your face good and probably use a scrub a day before. Why? Dead skin, dirt, grime, and sweat, might clog your pores, it will affect the penetration of the ingredients in the mask. This mask is definitely not cheap, so make sure the absorption is optimal.


This is my before look
And as I opened the packaging there’s a subtle mild fragrance which is comforting for me to use it while relaxing. The quality of the paper mask was definitely good, quite thick with cottony feel. It’s like if I squeeze the mask surely a bottle of Skin Vivo Serum will come out ^__^.

It doesn’t really fit on my face, I do have smaller feature which most mask won’t fit anyway, so I’m not complaining. What I am trying to do is just make the mask fit most of my angles, nose, mouth and cheeks are always my toughest parts, but if you have normal head length, you’ll have no problem with the mask whatsoever.

There are no allergy reaction or any displeasing moment while using the mask and the ingredients in it, I must say the scent of the mask is just lovely for me. Well, let’s just say I never have a complain in any of Biotherm’s scents, indeed the French are in their top game in terms of fragrance. There are some leftovers of the liquid inside the foil, for me it will be a total waste to just throw it away, so I close the lid again and using a clipper to close them up and put inside a zip plastic bag into the fridge. I will use it again in a couple of days. You can buy any paper mask (plain) the one that ‘just add the serum’, and add the rest of the liquid for that mask. Or if you’re really clean, use the same mask with the leftover liquid you have. But keep it tightly closed, cold, clean and don’t wait for more than 3-4 days. Or, just use the liquid like a liquid mask, as in without the paper mask.

This is my after look, which is definitely noticeable to be plumper, dewy-er, fresher, hydrated, and relaxed. I do look younger and rejuvenated. 9/10! Must try!

Best to be used? At night, so the rest of the liquid on your face can stay there longer and accompanied your skin sleeping. Waking up? Looking fab, gal!
