First of all, thank you so much The Body Shop Indonesia for inviting me in the press event of Chocomania. The chocolate in the image looks so luxurious and delicious in the same time, I need some chocolate now and I will do my review while digesting some now, okay ^__^ And I do suggest you to read this post while munching some gorgeous chocolate. Okay, grab some now, I’ll wait.

Since I’m late (again, really sorry and please everyone who takes part in making Jakarta better, do it faster ya) I’m immediately rushed to the OR, O-so-pleasureable Room where the arrays of comforts matters are ready. From feet cleansing.

To the delicious Strawberry tea.

After that and in a comfortable robe plus slippers.

I’m ready for my treatment. This is so perfect, I do have a hectic day(s) and meetings after meetings, traffic after traffic, I really need this and I know many working men and women out there need this indulging treatment once in a while and keep us in . . . sanity (^__^)

On my bed, there they are, I can’t help it but saying Awwhhh! I want them, and the amazing scent already lingering in the room, it was so sweet at first but like cuddling on a teddy bear that’s fluffy and soft. That’s exactly how I feel for Chocomania.

Different item have different texture, but they all share the same ingredients: Cocoa Butter, please do read more —> HERE. And as always The Body Shop will always serve the community:

Our Community Fair Trade cocoa butter comes from cocoa beans harvested by Kuapa Kokoo Co-operative in Ghana. With over 50,000 small-scale farmers, it is one of the biggest fair trade co-operatives in the world. Our trade has helped to fund education and medicine for members and their families.

Now, let’s start my treatment shall we?!

First the therapist gave me a relaxing massage with the body butter, even thou it look so thick and heavy, surprisingly it melts on my skin easily and there’s no sticky feeling, it was kinda unbelievable for me, I even ask the therapist if she mixed it with lotion or even replace it with lotion, nope! Pure body butter that she uses. And usually after using the body butter all over me, including feet, they usually become so slippery and I can easily fall in the wet shower room, IT DOESN’T. You really have to try this gorgeous Chocomania Body Butter by The Body Shop. Provide 48 hours hydration without being sticky. Superb!

 Then we moved on to the scrub, the scrub that so rough, here’s some info:

This exfoliating body scrub has a decadently chocolatey scent and leaves skin feeling softer and smoother. It contains real cocoa butter and organic cane sugar.

I was enjoying the treatment so much, the dead skin are all gone and the cocoa shell also helps with the exfoliating, I can feel the old skin peels away, the blood circulates better and everything is beautiful again.

Then it’s my time to rinse everything away. In the shower The Body Shop Indonesia has prepared the Chocomania Shower Cream, Rainforest Shampoo and Conditioner. I use them all without any doubt. The shampoo and conditioner in moisture and it does gives me smoother hair in a jiffy. The smell also so lovely and fragrant. Refreshing and make my hair silky, here’s some information on the hair care I use:

Gently cleanses to help restore moisture and improve the hair’s softness without weighing it down, for a smooth and shiny finish. With pracaxi oil, manketti nut oil and Community Fair Trade honey and sugar. No silicones, sulphates, parabens or colourants. For dry hair.

Conditions to help restore moisture and improve the hair’s softness without weighing it down, for a smooth and shiny finish. With pracaxi oil, manketti nut oil and Community Trade honey, babassu oil and coconut oil. No silicones, parabens or colourants. For dry hair.

And they are correct, moisturizing my hair without making them limp! Volume is still here ^__^

I’ve moved on to shower cream. The bottle looks so fancy, glowing and so does what’s inside it.

This pearlescent shower cream contains real cocoa butter and has a decadently chocolatey scent. It is soap-free and will not dry out the skin.

Like a liquid toffee, gorgeous and feels so rich. Pleasurably rich and I love the scent. A bit fresher than the body butter but still so creamy. My skin are being indulged now. The cleansing ability also good. Lather easily and abundant foam are created. I wanna stays here, please. Bubble zone!

Then, hmm let’s see which one I should try next?! The lotion! A more liquid version of body hydration that is also a bit fresher than the body butter in terms of scent.


This lightweight but luxurious body lotion has a decadently chocolatey scent.

And I’m enjoying it too, preferably used at day time but if your skin is dry, use the Chocomania Body Butter all the way, Psst! The staff also told me Chocomania also good for those with stretch marks ^__^ preventing and caring at the same time.

Lippies! I love lippies from The Body Shop and the delicious Chocomania Lip Butter gives me irresistible lips (in every meaning possible) that burst in chocolate scent.

If used alone, it gives me a nude look on the lips.

Last but not least, here’s some great news for you:

Durex Play O (21+ or Adult only)

Hi, 
before moving to the review, I kindly advice this review only to be read by adults only, and I also request my mom, dad, siblings not to read it, as it would be SO awkward XD
Okay, so now let’s start with the details given in durex.com:

Discover the secret to amazing orgasms with Play O Orgasmic Gel. This revolutionary gel has been developed by women for women using a unique combination of ingredients to help achieve more intense orgasms.

Open the bottle and it was sealed alright, so you have to turn the pump around before using it. The bottle is not big, kinda like eye drops, well a lot chubbier and twice the size perhaps. It was 15 ml, so they did considered small, but you only need to use a drop and it goes along the way.

Here’s the review:

Take it slow, well that turn out to be the tips instead of review, but when you try a new stuff, well at least I did, I always go overboard, pump too much, use too much, like skincare or cosmetics, I guess I need to learn taking things slow and this one really taught me.

I pump around once or twice and the sensation it was just too much at first, makes me wanna scream (not in joy) but like too much. It does gives me sensation but it takes time to get used to it. My advice is to put it NEAR the area, not exactly on the sensitive parts.

Will women all over the world benefit from this gel? Some may, but practice does make perfect and the minty scent and feeling help enlighten the mood as well. But still, nothing beats a good foreplay. Does it effect my sex life? It does enhance, but again I don’t have problem with the O, before and/or after Play O.

Maybe if it was used by someone who have problem reaching the O will get a more significant result.

Tips: blow it when it started to ‘cool down’ and it can be used in many parts of the body, including his.

As mentioned on my previous post, I get a whole bunch of stuffs from Revlon Indonesia and why do I get them is also related with IBB, read more –> HERE ya.

Here are all the goodies! Thank you Revlon Indonesia ^_^ And don’t worry I will share them one by one, reviews and then make some looks with them.

I really like this: Sealed with a kiss!

Now this is me using ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in 550, I will deliberate the tutorial, but actually you can simply have this just by looking at the back of the packaging and a simple guide line for you. Btw, in the light and seeing the product with naked eyes is so different, so you might want to do your trial prior using it. And sorry to say, on my lids, it doesn’t really stays 16 hours, maybe a primer would be good before using these eye shadows. Overall, this budget friendly shadows is suitable for daily use and special occasion when used in bold mode.

More tutorial and look will come ya ^__^ excited to do some experiments as well!

A dazzling glaze on the lips and it gives me a sensual feeling with a ripe glossy sheer of red raspberry. Yes, it’s Givenchy Gelee D’Interdit in Explosive Rspberry (5)

This would be a journey to that gorgeous lips that you probably looking for, but first let’s hear some details I get regarding the product, courtesy of harrods.com:

  • Offering a soft, sheer veil of colour, Givenchy’s Gelée D’Interdit is a brand-new sensation for your pout. With a soothing, balm-like texture and glossy finish, this luscious, wax-free formula coats lips with a crystallised coverage of lively and playful colours.
  • Gelée D’Interdit in Explosive Raspberry
  • Balm texture and glossy finish
  • Wax-free formula
The wax free formula is the secret of the super comfortable feeling.

Let’s see how it work ^__^

First as usual a naked lips with nothing on it

Then start with lower lips, I glide the brush with ease and it feels really good and fragrant. It felt so luxurious!

This is my final look a smooth glossy lips with a sheer redness. So perfect to be used alone for a nude look and as top layer after a boring lipstick. It’s totally kissable! And the smooth sailing experience is a big bonus, beyond any balm can do.

Hi girls! Ladies! Or just about anyone who loves lippies ^__^

Let’s share lips colors by Revlon now.

I have 080 Super Lustrous Lipgloss Cherries in the Glow
131 Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme Ginger Rose
and
660 Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in Bed of Roses

One of them have Kiss for Life sticker that helps donation for those women in needs.

The one on top is 660 Bed of Roses, a vivid red color that does feels creamy. You need to re-apply almost every 3-4 hours. The cream is not that creamy, I feel I need more moist and added balm would be nice, or you can top it off with a lip gloss as well.

The middle pic is 131 Ginger Rose, same cream texture where I feel like I need more moisture and the color almost match my natural lip color. I think this one is more suitable for daily use.

The last part (bottom) is 080 Lip Gloss Cherries in the Glow that does glow, but it only stays like 2-3 hours. Great as a top coat (lips after lipstick) or use it alone for that sexy sheer look.

Overall these three products is affordable and comes in many shades that will be suitable for your daily need or special event but id doesn’t gives you any extra point like caring for your lips or other ingredients that is beneficial. Conclusion? They are okay, but you need more moisture and keep reapplying.

Hi all!
Now I’m going to share the review of one of Revlon new item. Since I’m a part of Indonesian Beauty Blogger community, I get a chance to try this foundie 🙂 It’s fun right?! So do join Indonesian Beauty Blogger ya, click –> HERE.
Okay, back to the product, a funny looking bottle with swirls inside it 🙂 nice! This cream makeup felt kinda rich in texture.
Since I got the product without being able to choose the shade, it somewhat match and somewhat looks too ehm, red for me.
Since the cream is thick you can easily overused, so pump it little by little ya. Always put it on a cleaned, toned, (serum+) moisturizer ya before using this cream. Wait until the skincare absorbed before using any makeup.
Then after more spreading, it can be distributed well, but I feel talcy here. A bit like old foundation type, only feels lighter.

After it dries up, I really like the tiny sparkles that made the skin looks glisten. Like after getting a tan it’s just glows. Perfect for party too. And here a collage of pictures of me using the cream on my face.

Doesn’t feel enough seeing a collage? I give you a full spread.

The overall look become flawless, fine lines are covered, so does the mini freckles, large pores and uneven skin tone.

Here’s the difference in one picture. The downside I can feel is they do feels heavier compared to other brand where now everyone compete to be the lightest, nevertheless, price-wise, many will satisfy with this product.

Use a loose powder afterwards and you’re ready for color. I suggest cleaning them with makeup remover before any facial foam.


Hi \^0^/ beautiful!

Here’s a glimpse of the event Yves Saint Laurent just have yesterday, it was classic, sophisticated and luxurious.

Touche Eclat has been serving us for 20 full years. Giving us a glowing highlights on our face, making dark shading so old school and enhance our angles for more beautiful looking face.

Inspired by Glycobiology:

The Science of the Future

After DNA and stem cells, Glycobiology is recognized as one of the breakthrough sciences of the future. Awarded 7 Nobel Prizes, Glycobiology provides deeper understanding of the body’s biological mechanisms.
Glycobiology is the study of glycans, molecules which are naturally present in the skin. Glycans are responsible for directing communication between cells, ensuring that they send and receive the messages required for optimal performance. Without glycans, cellular communication breaks down and the body cannot properly function.
Then I try the item that deserve the spotlight for being a success for 20 years.

Touche Eclat! Please do read the press release —> HERE.

The before picture is on below part while the bigger image is me with Touche Eclat. The shine and glow are unedited. It was pure cosmetics ^__^ Touche Eclat enhancing all the angles and natural beauty plus curve that I have, creating a more shaped form of what we like to call, beautiful!

Do you see my lips? I bet you did! It is

Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain

It’s so bold and the color just pop out beyond any color ever touch my lips before. The feeling is sensual and I know why they are a big hit, a bright solid red that none can compare. YSL also told me that this item is a big hit and in this color as well. Whether your fair or dark skin tone, anyone an use this color, and flaunt it with style!

Wanna know which shade I’m using? Head down to any of YSL counter and ask the lovely staff about the bright reddest color that everyone’s talking about ^__^

I will share with you more on using Touche Eclat later on, so stay tune and thank you so much Yves Saint Laurent Indonesia for inviting me to the event.

Hi all!

Weekend as always is a very busy day for bloggers, we do have many events going on and lot’s of products as well ^__^ so stay tune and I’ll share with you in these few days, so let’s start with Shu Uemura Kimono Party in Sogo Kelapa Gading.

Like always there are arrays of Shu’s items and please do read my previous post about this event —> HERE.

Without delaying, Ms. Regina, start the event with a bang!

The Kimono fashion shows by Raffles Design Institutes and after weeks of voting try to find out the best in each category, have you voted for them?

Then it’s Mr. Hendrix time to show his skill as the accredited make up artist of Shu Uemura Indonesia.

Isn’t she gorgeous?! Mr.Hendrix says this look is perfect for special event and not for daily use. The colors are spring and as a celebration of Mamechiyo for Shu Uemura.

Followed by another fashion show and it was very lovely, I voted for the yellow one ^__^ I like the back side which make it so Kimono and the front so contemporary.


And here are the winners of the designs, kudos for these talented young people and for Shu Uemura Indonesia for having the ideas celebrating Mamechiyo for Shu Uemura with Raffles Design Institute.

Steamcream

Hi all!

This next product I’m gonna introduce is a product that I’ve been having for quite some time and after being stingy for quite some time XD I now decided to share with you about Steamcream, why? They will be here in Indonesia soon, hooray!!

I get mine from Singapore and could totally understand why they are loved. It’s not just the varieties of wonderful creative exterior (more than 100 designs), but for what’s inside these tins. Btw, my tin’s design is Framboise

Here is the details from steamcream.co.uk:

STEAMCREAM represents the latest concept in skincare. Freshly handmade using high-quality, natural ingredients that are fused together by a shot of steam. This unique method makes the cream very lightweight, providing long-lasting hydration for the face. The texture also makes it a perfect nourishing treat for your body and hands too.

And I so get the why ^__^ you will too once you’ve tried it

Each tin are sealed (for your protection) and just peel it open. They do have manufacture date, and you can see the freshness 🙂

Find out more of the ingredients: HERE.

They are a simple quality skincare products that is suitable for ALL skin type. Handmade in Japan (well mine is) and can be use for all your skin in many different places, hands, face and body.

The moment I opened it the scent is lovely and comforting. Reminds me of a product from UK (brand: Lush). But this one is more fragrant in terms of I see the flowers ingredients there, not just the oatmeal, almond and jojoba oil.

It looks pretty thick but once I touch it, they become so light and easy to apply. The oils make the skin glisten and the moisturizing level is just amusing. Long flight in the plane become no problem now. No more dry skin and uncomfortable condition, the scent also smooth and yummy ^__^

One thing for sure is the hydrating ability and natural oil that may cause some discomfort for oily facial skin. Use it at night only for your facial skin if you have normal-combination-oily skin. But for the body and hands, it was a match made in heaven alright. You can use it anytime. I do my daily chores regularly like washing the dishes and delicate items, my hands are happy with Steamcream as hand cream. It made them soft and gentle again.

For the body? Same as hands. The cream protect, nourish, and pampered the skin so much that you’ll love your skin even more. Use it night time before going to bed (especially if you use air conditioner), the scent will induce snoozing and you’ll wake up with a smooth soft skin as well.

And I use it when I have skin allergy, bug bites, and other skin discomfort as well, the result? The skin become more calm, less irritated, less swollen, less problems ^__^

You really have to try it!

Hi pretty ladies!

Finally, after receiving this serum I was able to try them, sorry, lately I’ve been really busy ^__^ (lame excuse) no really, many things going on right now and I try to get things sort out.

Here it is, from the back XD it is a very simple serum to be used 2 times daily before moisturizer. Vax’in is a serum for the first signs of aging and that means early 20’s (ups, I’m 10 years late), and here’s some info I got from givenchybeauty.com:

VAXIN SERUM

Youth Infusion Serum is formulated with a unique complex capable of generating micro-stimuli which encourage the skin?s cells to produce their own age-defying protein – HSP70.
Defense and repair mechanisms are strengthened. Wrinkle formation is slowed down. Tone and resilience are maintained. Skin stays luminous looking and youthful.
With this cosmetic vaccine-like age-defying effect, the skin is left looking youthful and invigorated.

The only bad thing I can say about this serum is I only received a sample, and it’s kinda too small to see a significant result. But I can clearly says that the serum absorb fast, no irritants or allergic reactions so far and suitable for almost anyone for being comfortable and delicate.
