Light Analyzing Moisture Foundation SPF20/PA++ (Powder Type)

This powder type Light Analyzing Moisture Foundation SPF 20/PA++ delivers optimal light for a luminescent complexion is infused with super antioxidant Astaxanthin to minimise oxidation of sebum on the skin surface, and hydro-soluble Collagen to retain moisture in the skin.
  • Resistant to perspiration and sebum for long-lasting coverage.
  • Provides light to medium coverage, perfect for summer climates.

* Case and puff each sold separately


Key Ingredients:

  • Astaxanthin
  • Collagen
  • Light Analyzing Powder

Size

  • 9g


Available Shades

-*-



This is the product, a red case with ASTALIFT imprinted on it, looks sophisticated and glamor at the same time, probably due to the daring red and golden words. The casing, sponge and powder all sold separately, so when purchasing them please do take care the lovely casing, since it has good quality material and a huge mirror attached to it.

I get mine in BO OO which is Beige Ochre 00. It’s not the lightest shade, I think the lightest one should be Ochre 00. But it works surprisingly well on my usually “demand the fairest of them all” skin tone. Perhaps in the ASTALIFT world there are more fair skin as they are a brand from Japan. Japanese ladies can be so fair and have a skin of with the touch of white as snow.

-*-


Here it is a powder with the title of foundation yet feels light on the skin. I’ve used it alone and after a liquid foundation. If one’s want  a full coverage use it with a liquid foundation and then the powder, but when lightness and natural look desired, this powder foundation alone is enough.

I’ve tried using it with a foundation brush and apparently sponge is a better option, the sponge helps the texture of the powder to be distributed more even, especially on a moist skin. I love to keep my skin moist and any makeup which keep the moisture intact is a good makeup.

I know a matte skin used to be so popular but I always hate it since it looks so unnatural. A skin should be glowing and radiant, but not as glowing as oily and greasiness heehee, just that lovely glow which looks natural and healthy. So a powder is still needed but not the one that suck all the life out of the skin. Just the one that enhance and beautifies, like ASTALIFT Light Analyzing Moisture Foundation. Which also have SPF 20 PA ++ for around 5 hours of protection against the sun.

The powder itself sits on my skin around 3-4 hours before the next touch up (outdoor) and 4-6 hours (indoors). Able to reflect lights very well (seen on the image where there’s zero blind spot) and smooth plus soft to the touch. The skin feels good and not dried up, a good solution for us living in a summer all year long.

Thank you ASTALIFT Indonesia.

Hello lovelies,

how are you all? I hope everyone in a tip top condition ^___^

I’m going to share a product from ASTALIFT. A whitening mask with an anti aging in mind.

-*-



Details from www.astalift.com.sg:

Key Ingredients:

  • Astaxanthin
  • Arbutin
  • Collagen
  • Peony Extract
  • Yeast Extract
Size

  • A box of 3 pieces
  • A pack of 1 piece

-*-



The details of how to use also explain well on the back side of the packaging. Clean the face thoroughly and use lotion prior upon mask.

A one piece mask is sold around Rp.145.000 in Indonesia.

-*-



The unique ingredients that caters the needs in aging skin with whitening effect is something I look forward to. Last week has been a tough week for me with the surgery and everything, it’s pampering time alright \^0^/

-*-


Inside there’s the package of 1 mask. All the details inside are in Japanese language.

-*-


Please do look up in the net for more details if feels needed.

Me? I just open it up and see what’s inside.

-*-



Wow, an orange colored liquid fills in the mask and feels very juicy.

-*-



The image of the mask is exactly like shown in the website, a thicker middle part for concentrated focus for the upper cheeks all the way to the temple.

-*-



The quality of the mask is wonderful, feels so soft on the touch and on the skin. The liquid feels luxurious and plentiful, it’s a good thing the mask can stay intact to the skin thanks to the cotton ability from the material given. It holds on to the face like a 3D mask, oh well, it is better than a 3D mask in terms of the fitting.

-*-



And the wonderful damask rose aroma is delightful. Calming, comforting and connected to the benefits in the ingredients where it gives the skin anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.

-*-


There are still so many leftovers inside the packaging, I’m not wasting them and drop some on my neck, body and arm ^__^

-*-


After 15-20 minutes the mask feels drier than before and easily detach from the face. My skin looks instantly brighter, no redness, irritation, nor allergic reaction. The feeling is comfortable and hydrated. The skin feels so moist and plump. Hmm, younger and prettier in one session. The team from ASTALIFT Indonesia assured me to try on the mask since the high concentration of products inside the mask. So, you are guaranteed to feel and see faster result.

Tap the excess liquid after removal of the mask, into the skin using the palms. I followed with moisturizer afterwards.

-*-


Oh wait, there’s still some more juice left hold by the mask. I squeezed it and found more drops of formula, wow, generous amount for sure.

-*-


Thank you ASTALIFT Indonesia, it is indeed a must try item from your collection.


Hello ladies,

from the recent event with ASTALIFT, I brought home a set and try them recently. Due to it’s nature I can only give a review of 1 week max, so consider this post as first impression ^__^

-*-



In Japan, there are many samples sold in the marketplace. Varieties of brands are offering travel sizes as a tool for customer to try before purchasing a full size item. Now, I see ASTALIFT also selling this minis on their counter, the price is around Rp.150.000.

-*-


There are 6 items in the set and a details plus brochure is included. So anyone could just read the details plus there’s a how to guide as well. From massaging technique to printed information. All of them in Japanese but the photos are quite clear showing how to’s. The amount of product needed in each step also shown. Wow! Japan are very precised in details for sure.

-*-



Start with a cleansing gel to remove all the makeup. Gently melt the gel on the palm before massaging the face with it.

-*-


It was wonderful, I love the Damask Rose scent, the texture of the gel. Watch out don’t let the gel get into the eyes, it sting. I use the gel to clean waterproof mascara which perhaps eye makeup remover will be better for the sensitive eye area.

Still, on the skin, the gel feels really good and thoroughly clean everything it touches.

-*-


All those makeup are gone (incl. the waterproof mascara with a bit of the gel get into the eyes, my bad) and dissolving themselves in the gel. I add a bit of water to emulsify and then rinse everything off. Move on to step 2.

-*-


The cleansing foam or Moisture Foam in ASTALIFT world. This creamy lathery cleanser are so easy to bubbles up. Creating a fine white foam abundantly. Always lather a cleansing foam before touching the face, so it’s the bubbles that cleanse.

-*-



Just like the cleansing gel, massage the foam onto the skin until every side, angle and in between are foamed. Once rinse the face feel clean . . . like almost squeaky clean, like the limit between really clean to overly striping the moisture completely off from the skin. I enjoy double cleansing so much that I keep repeating step 1 and 2 with or without makeup on.

-*-


Then, come the unique part. The Jelly.

Details from http://www.astalift.com.sg:

Jelly Aquarysta

The epitome of all ASTALIFT’s products – Jelly Aquarysta, is a unique anti-ageing phenomenon for every woman.
The uniquely named Aquarysta is derived from AQUA and CRYSTAL, which symbolises the light as water texture of the clear jelly, and the crystal-clear, moisturised skin it brings.
It is the first product to be used right after cleansing / washing in your daily skincare regime, and before lotion and emulsion.
This extraordinary revolutionary skincare formula targets visible signs of premature ageing: dark spots, lines and dull skin, delivering visibly younger, more luminous and ‘replumped’ skin.
Key Ingredients:

  • human-type nano-Ceramide
  • nano-Astaxanthin
  • nano-Lycopene
  • highly-permeable Resveratrol
  • Collagen
  • Damask Rose
Size

  • 40g
-*-


The unique texture of something that really similar to jelly or jell-o. On the skin the jelly will melt and distribution process become easier. The skin receives the jelly as well as a pleasing step on skincare routine. At first I thought it would be a sticky experience, it’s not, somehow the formula just goes into the skin without any inconvenience traces. What’s left on the skin is hydration and plumpness.

-*-



The bright orange is an enticing addition to the product, the team from ASTALIFT assured me not to worry, as the orange/red color will not stain the skin ^__^

-*-



Continue with lotion. The orange colored water is a delight to the skin, I use my hand to distribute the lotion (not cotton) and gently tap them over and add some pressure using the palm to some parts where the palm fit the area. Making sure to help absorption of the nourishing ingredients.

-*-



Step 5 is the essence.

Essence Destiny

Formulated with high concentrations of nano-Astaxanthin, nano-Lycopene, highly-permeable Resveratrol, Royal Jelly, skin firming Elastin and Collagen to effectively deliver anti-ageing goodness deep into the skin.
Use regularly to feel the bounce and suppleness on skin. See your skin return with vigour and enjoy luminescent skin.
Key Ingredients:
  • nano-Astaxanthin
  • nano-Lycopene
  • highly-permeable Resveratrol
  • Collagen
  • Elastin
  • Royal Jelly
  • Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
  • Damask Rose

-*-


A product that wins awards and one of the star product in the series. The texture is also unique, almost like an unset jelly. So cute and the skin accept them as it was their own. In fact, I think all products in ASTALIFT are penetrated easily into the skin. All of their texture feels so light but packed with a whole lotta goodness for the ageing skin. But without any feeling of overwhelming nor too much.

-*-


The last step would be the cream. The one that seals the whole moisture and nutrients from the outside world. Making sure the products applied before can stay intact on the skin, absorbed and enjoyed.

-*-

This is the cream, milky orange in color and rich in texture. I use it by dividing the cream into several spots on the face. Then, gently massage the cream on the skin with small circular motion.

-*-


The moisture stay with me all day long, I use them twice a day, in the morning after a shower and at night after cleaning the face or after a shower as well. The 6 steps might feel a bit much for some who haven’t got used to it, but for me, it all took less than 3 minutes. I try to do it slower, since actually each step need time and proper massaging technique.

-*-




Overall, I think the set is quite convenient. It comes with all the product in the series where needed (complete set) and suitable for those who want to try before they make any purchasing. I know some other brand provide free samples, but usually the packaging is not as neat as ASTALIFT. The set gives me some ideas of the products, which are:

1. All of them is light in texture but none feel sticky on the skin.
2. The whole 6 steps doesn’t overwhelmed my skin.
3. The brochure inside the box is nicely done, but I wish it comes in English or Bahasa for customer in Indonesia.
4. A great way to introduce the skin to the whole set in full size.
5. Love the naturally derived scent of Damask Rose in the range.
6. So far no allergy reaction nor undesired effect. Usually products contain collagen triggers acne on my skin.
7. I like the natural colors of the products (team ASTALIFT assured us it was not colored, but naturally from the ingredients).
8. I like the high technology behind these products which help the product penetrated better and faster on the skin with nanotechnology. You may read the details here: http://www.astalift.com.sg/the-brands/astalift/astalift-technology.html

And with all those reasons, I want to try the full size products and other collection from ASTALIFT.

Thank you ASTALIFT Indonesia.


Hi all!

Last week I was invited by ASTALIFT.

About ASTALIFT from www.astalift.com.sg:

‘ASTA’ in Japanese means tomorrow and ‘LIFT’ refers to the uplift of one’s inner emotions as beauty shines through. The result is a meaningful brand promise that offers renewed skin.
Created by FUJIFILM, ASTALIFT is an award-winning brand that offers carefully-researched skincare and supplement products with proven efficacy.
Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.
What’s more, Collagen – an important structural protein in human skin – is also the key ingredient for photographic film. FUJIFILM, harnessing its nearly 80 years of collagen research, has effectively channeled this area of expertise to ASTALIFT’s products.
FUJIFILM has also applied its proprietary knowledge of nanotechnology – for exposing and colour developing in film – to allow high concentrations of ultra-fine skin-nourishing ingredients to be delivered effectively and deeply to targeted levels of the skin, while preserving their efficacy.
FUJIFILM’s strengths in image analysing technologies – gleaned from our vast experience in the photographic and medical fields – have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.
Inspired by skin cell research. Powered by proprietary nano technology.

At one of the prestigious hotel in Kuningan, a brand that produce Jelly that feeds the skin with the power of red and the ability to penetrate deep into the skin.

Anti-oxidation, Collagen, Nanotechnology and Optical technologies

Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to creating ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.
What’s more, Collagen – an important structural protein in human skin – is also the key ingredient for photographic film. FUJIFILM, harnessing its nearly 80 years of collagen research, has successfully cultured 3 types of collagen – each precisely engineered to reach a different skin layer – to protect, supply and nurture the collagen in your skin.
The brand has also applied FUJIFILM’s proprietary knowledge of Nanotechnology to allow strong skin-nourishing ingredients in ASTALIFT products to penetrate deep into the different layers of the skin. Nano-size antioxidants – Astaxanthin and Lycopene, combined with the 3 types of collagen are absorbed quickly into the deeper layers of the skin for optimal hydration and nourishment.
FUJIFILM’s strengths in image analysing technologies – gleaned from extensive R&D in the photographic and medical fields – have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.

-*-

A team from Singapore brought us the presentation about how the nanotechnology and the meaning of Aka No Chikara.

One of the ingredients found in ASTALIFT is Astaxanthin, which is a red pigment.

Astaxanthin is a Carotenoid found in nature – in vegetables containing β-Carotene and Ricopin. High in applicability, it is 10 times more powerful than β-Carotene and 1,000 times stronger then CoQ10.
-*-

The benefit of using ASTALIFT:

ASTALIFT is formulated with 3 types of collagen of different sizes, not only to hydrate skin surface, but also to effectively permeate deep into the skin’s stratum corneum layer.

The 3 types of collagen act together to moisturise and enhance skin suppleness, as well as to enhance the collagen deep inside your skin.

ASTALIFT is also powered by Astaxanthin, Lycopene and highly-permeable Resveratrol. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that is 1,000 times more powerful than CoQ10 (Co-enzyme Q10). It protects the collagen within your skin from damage and maintains the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Like Astaxanthin, Lycopene and highly-permeable Resveratrol are antioxidants with age-defying properties.


And during the presentation, we can all try the products on our table.

-*-

I started mine with a cleansing gel. Then, one by one until everything on the table, tried them all on the hand surface. So far I found the texture of all the products to be light, rejuvenating and hydrating. The skin looks to be gaining vitality as well.

I love the subtle scent of roses, which is from damask rose. Lovely and comforting in the same time.

 Here are the products:

-*-

The complete series is presented and available in Indonesia. You may have seen them in several department store in Jakarta, such as, Seibu Grand Indonesia, SOGO Mal Alam Sutra, and SOGO Mal Kelapa Gading. 


-*-

The brand also have 2 signature items, the Essence and the Jelly. I’m a huge fan for beauty products in a form of a jelly ^__^ or other ‘unique’ texture/ form.

-*-

They handed me some travel sizes to be tried at home. Fret not, I’ll share my review right after trying them one by one.

-*-

The uniqueness doesn’t stop there, the masks are made with a high quality fabric, yes, I have one from the whitening series and will share the review as well after trying them.

-*-

Both of the mask is orange in color after being soak with the ‘juice’ from ASTALIFT.

-*-

Beside skincare, ASTALIFT also comes with a series of makeup. Again, with some stunning features:

-*-

Skincare and makeup in one (not meant to replace skincare thou’).

-*-

Want to try them? Me too!

-*-


The selection of shades are not bad. Even the lightest shade comes in three variation from pinkish, ochre, to ochre beige, and they all contain astaxanthin and collagen like the skincare.

-*-

Time do flies when I’m enjoying myself. This is me with the team from Singapore and Japan.

-*-


Thank you for having me and all of us during the event .
