Hello ladies,

thank you so much, since 2009 I’ve been blogging about beauty products and finally after saving some time I’m able to start videos session of Skincare 101.

There will be a bunch of videos with different topic every time, I’m planning to discuss per products range, type, needs and well anything I can separate them into.




You may contribute by commenting in which beauty products you want me to share in the next video and I’ll do my best to do so ^__^

Again, thank you so much, it won’t be happening without you, my lovely readers!!



Hello everyone ^^

Kiehl’s has a new item for the eyes, the powerful wrinkle reducing eye cream. Come from the series of Abyssine.

-*-


Details from www.kiehls.com:

Powerful anti-wrinkle eye cream

• Skin fortifying under-eye cream, with a combination of micronutrients, Copper PCA and Calcium PCA
• Significantly improves wrinkles, texture and elasticity.
• Formulated for the delicate under-eye area

-*-



A unique eye cream which help reducing the lines and seems like the focus is anti wrinkle with the firming abilities. Like any product it is not an instant effect but to be used at least 2 weeks and 1 month to see the significant differences.

The thick Arctic ice blue colored cream is almost scentless too.

-*-


And like any other wonderful product out there, the eye cream has to be used with all means possible, no staying up late, get enough sleep, maintain a healthy habit and diet as well.

I use the eye cream after serum and right before moisturizer. Using a ring finger I use around a rice-sized. Then blend the cream between two ring fingers and gently dab the eyes with them. They melt nicely and caress the skin surrounding the eyes.

-*-


Suitable for those above 25, this lightweight cream is perfect to be used 2 times daily, day and night. Occasionally I use it for my lips too ^^ It made them lines free. Put it in a fridge for a cooling and de-puffing the eye bags. 

Thank you Kiehl’s Indonesia.

Hi dearies ^______^ (been watching Once Upon a Time for too long)

this is item is not specifically made for the ladies, to be certain, it was made for the men and in the men collections … yums!

-*-


Details from kiehls.com:

Facial Fuel Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel

The ultimate all-in-one solution for your shaving and cleansing needs that relieves irritation and provides a smooth shave.  Gentle to skin, lightweight and lathers quickly.  With the help of highly invigorating Caffeine, Vitamin C and E, skin is hydrated, energized and ready for takeoff.
• As a cleanser, this hydrating gel packed with Bamboo, Lemon and Orange Peel Extracts deeply cleanses skin to remove oil and impurities without over-drying or stripping.
• When used for shaving, this multi-tasking formula transforms into a highly lathering, dense foam to lubricate skin for the smoothest of shaves while Panax Ginseng works to minimize redness and irritation.
• To shave, wet face with warm water and apply foam gel as needed. Shave and rinse with cool water. To cleanse, massage gently onto damp skin and rinse with warm water.
• Paraben-free

-*-

Where do I even begin to praise it? From the calming properties or to the ability for shaving wise and cleansing while keeping the skin happy, invigorating, energized yet far from irritation and other kind of discomfort a shave could do. And beyond that a clean finish as well as it get the title of Multi-Gel which is multifunction. A self foaming gel that gives anyone a great start for the day.

I’m for sure a sucker in term of foaming the cleanser correctly, and so does my husband. He is a man for sure and plumping up a cleansing foam to a perfect density is NOT on his to do list. It’s not that important for him, yet the skin still need that foam to begin with. This is where I start praising the gel, oh yes, the prelude above is nothing 😀

From the moment I pump it on, a blue clear gel comes out and immediately transform itself into this super fluffy foam ready for action. I use it to shave and for cleansing my face just like he does. I’m not going to let him have all the fun, I want some too. I love the scent and sensation as much as he does and for once (in a while) we both agree on something, we both love this product and will continually use it as a gel for shaving but most of all for cleaning the face. Since the result is a clean skin from daily debris without striping the skin dry, in fact, the skin become so soft and like I said before happy, super happy!

A must try and must have product in every household. Kiehl’s put it in the men’s zone, I put it in unisex.


Hi everyone,

especially those who made it to the class, thank you so much ^0^

-*-


The second beauty class is held in Seibu, Grand Indonesia and before the clock strike 1 PM the guests already coming.

-*-


 Once again, it will be about that famous BB Cream which give the skin instant result with lasting correction effect.

Soon, we started the event with skin consultation so all the ‘students’ may learn about their skin before the class began.

-*-




This is Mr. Ari, you may see the details of the presentation HERE. Everyone’s here got to try this wonderful BB Cream

-*-



I got to share my experience in using the BB and CC Cream (noooo, not that CC Cream, it’s the moisturizer from Kiehl’s, Clearly Corrective Cream) and let all the audience try to smell, feel and enjoy the texture as well. It was really light and hydrating at the same time. I share my tips, do’s and dont’s on using skincare and hopefully all of it are useful for everyone.

I love when their asking question, get free consultation from Kiehl’s team and me too ^__^

-*-



Then, it’s Carryna’s turn, heehee she looks so cute! She shares her experience using the emulsion, a lighter version of CC Cream suitable for oily skin type. Mr. Ari helps us with technical details while me and Carryn shares on our experiences in using the products. We both give good reviews based on our skin type and usage. Plus we both share how to fully optimized the products.

-*-


A mini makeover is done by team Kiehl’s right after sharing session. Everyone rush in to get their face cleansed and personal experience using all Kiehl’s products suitable for their skin. Which means everyone get a unique products carefully selected for their unique skin as well.

Here are some input that I shared during the event:
1. Always consult with the staff before deciding to buy any beauty products. They are supposed to help you in finding the right item and brave enough to say when maybe the one you’re looking for is not in their brand.
2. Good companies do give samples and a bunch of them.
3. Always pay attention in the direction of usage, ‘t&c’ of every product and be sure to do the skincare with a pre-cleanse / washed hands.

-*-



We all have fun and found items that suitable with their skin. Me? I found this cute bag with mascot for Kiehl’s box. You can have one for FREE at a special limited deal offer. Somehow it reminds me of a Japanese Sushi \^0^/

-*-


Again, thank you everyone who came to the Beauty Class and thank you Kiehl’s for the full support.

See you all soon!!!


Hi everyone,

first of all thank you so much for coming to the Beauty Class last Saturday in Plaza Senayan, the store was crowded thanks to all of you. It was a full packed, wall to wall guests who came that day, registered and non registered as well.

We will conduct another Beauty Class at Grand Indonesia on the 30th.

Details are given below:
-*-


And yes, you read it correctly as buy one get one free, since we know some of the guests did bring a friend along wink wink ^__–.

The event will be a series of wonderful knowledge in Kiehl’s products particularly the one that made your skin look flawless and less dark sposts, virtually. So everyone who come get a very clear idea on how it works.

-*-

The BB Cream (Read: HERE) work as a protector from outside, imagine an umbrella for the skin, while from within, there’s a product that I’m currently using called Clearly Corrective Deep Moisture Clarifying Cream, or let me called it as the Clarifying Cream, works from beneath, as a hydrating agent and helps correcting the skin day and night.

-*-
 

In the event all participant learn about the ingredients inside the BB Cream and how it works, and then I was told on how the Clarifying Cream work well with the BB Cream. First of all is the same ingredients, Vitamin C.

-*-


On the direction also mentioned that Clarifying Cream to be used with UV Protection such as the BB Cream that contain a high SPF level of 50 PA +++. Which means it will protect the skin for 8 hours long.

-*-

There are many types of UV rays but the one that effecting the skin in harmful way is the UVA and UVB. It can cause the skin to age and create dark spots.

-*-

We did learn a lot from Kiehl’s that day, so don’t forget to sign up and see you all there soon!

-*-


Here are the products I used along side with Clarifying Cream:

-*-


Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate, and many more.




Not to forget the BB Cream.

-*-


I also have some samples (yes, Kiehl’s are well-known for their abundant generosity of samples) which I use as well.

-*-


So the Clarifying Cream can work it’s best ^__^

Details from www.kiehls.com :

Skin tone correcting moisturizing cream
• Highly effective, skin clarifying moisturizing cream intensively corrects uneven skin tone
• Provides continuous 24-hour hydration while visibly diminishing dark spots and discoloration
• Activated C helps diminish the appearance of skin irregularities and prevents the formation of new ones
• Instantly hydrates skin and provides long-term radiance
• Use after Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution and before sun protection
• Paraben-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free,  dermatologist-tested


My say:

The white cream is lovely, from the fresh flowery scent (from natural ingredients) to the light texture. Unlike most whitening/brightening product that exfoliate the skin, Clarifying Cream hydrating the skin so irritation wont occurred.  Irritation does make dark spots worsen or created in the first place.

So how does the Clarifying Cream works its way in creating an even skin tone? The Activated C. “To help deter the formation of new pigmentation irregularities on skin surface, the formula helps visibly diminish dark spots and discolorations for overall skin uniformity and clarity“.

And without being so heavy the cream gently penetrate into the skin without greasy effect nor oily feeling even thou it gives the skin 24 hour hydration effect. So far this is my favorite clarifying/brightening cream I have for being so light, gentle, effective and moisturizing at the same time.

Price sold in Indonesia is Rp.575.000.

And I never forget to top it off with the BB Cream right after the Clarifying Cream every day for a spotless looking skin.


Dear all,

today let me share with you some of leading products out there which provide sun protection to the skin and in the same time beautifying.

Most BB Cream on the market is plain makeup, which doesn’t have skincare properties beneficial for the skin. Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB cream have benefits just like skincare does.

-*-


Just like their Ultra Light Daily UV Defense the BB Cream is packed with SPF 50 PA +++ but now, even better.

These details are from http://www.kiehlstimes.com/

-*-

Instant perfection with lasting correction, I love their tag line. And what’s in it that ade the BB Cream becomes a lasting correction?

Yes, the vit C inside the product that gives the lasting correction effect of improving discolorations and imperfection, minimizes the appearances of pores and the sun screen gives SPF 50/PA +++ UV Protection which inhibit the future discoloration and uneven skin tone.

-*-

These are both of the items, the white cream is Ultra Light Daily UV Defense and the tinted one is BB Cream. Both looks glossy and the feeling is soft to the touch.

-*-


I use it on a cleansed skin with toner, serum and moisturizer too. I use both just to show the colors, but both works well together or just alone. I prefer the BB Cream since it was tinted and provide vitamin C for caring the skin even better.

-*-


This is the instant effect of the BB cream, an even skin tone and glowing radiant skin. It hides some imperfection in a natural way without looking like makeup. After the BB Cream makeup may be added like foundation, concealers, powders, etc.

I love how I can use the BB Cream daily as it will help the skin to get better complexion, less lines, and finer pores as well.

-*-

This is my look after full makeup. The BB Cream does help so I don’t have to use much makeup than before. A simple BB Cream with loose powder also will do for that natural daily look.

Still curious about Kiehl’s BB Cream?

Super duper long names right?! And please do read on the details before reading my review. The product from Kiehl’s as usual, it is simple and minimal design with all the necessary information needed stick on it. If only they change the name into hair magic potion, period. Okay, that’s a joke, they have all the rights to give any name of all their products.

The pointy tip is definitely a helper so the oil goes right to the scalp and drips some to the hair. The oils smells really good, fresh and invigorating. The scalp instantly feels the energy, care and luxurious richness of the oils.

Instantly the oils are taken by the hair strands and I can see the hair are so happy and glistening. The coarse parts rejuvenated and the dryness disappears. I don’t have dry scalp, more like oily scalp, yet still able to take benefit from the oils for the stimulating effect. I hope in the long run also help with adding the fullness of the hair and regrowth. 

-*-


I leave the hair with the oils for 15-20 minutes regularly and sometime over those minutes, the tingling effect will be more felt when leave longer. And it will keep stimulating the scalp even after rinsing.

Even thou’ it’s oil, they are lightweight and able to be dissolved by water. Shampoo is still needed but unlike regular oils which made the scalp oily and greasy, Magic Elixir is easily rinse off. I use my regular shampoo for colored hair and all the leftovers are gone. The nutrients are hopefully absorbed and repairs the damage of the hair, enrich the scalp, and hello shiny hair.

Overall, if you’re looking for a treatment done pre-shampoo old fashioned way with a modern twist and simplicity, try the Magic Elixir Hair Restructuring Concentrate for that healthier hair and nourished scalp all the way to the end.

Ultimate Strength Hand Salve


Hello everyone ^__^

Another item from Kiehl’s is here. Last item I’ve reviewed is their foot cream, now, it’s the hand cream.


Details from kiehls.com

Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

Formulated for the driest, most active hands, this heavy–duty moisture treatment is a thick, rich formula offering all–day care and protection. Our blend of select ingredients allows skin to actually draw and absorb water from the air, forming a “glove–like” protective barrier against moisture loss. This formula, which contains a blend of botanical oils as well as natural wax derived from Olive Oil, further soothes, moisturizes and conditions skin. This most effective preparation helps protect against and repair the appearance of severe dryness caused by heavy industrial work, manual labor, neglect, or exposure to harsh elements.

A white slightly yellowish thick cream that feels oily on the skin at first, comforting those dry rough edges on the cells. Within 2 minutes the greasiness will disappears into this soft and smooth feeling. Comfortable for those suffering dryness. Long haul plane and traveling in a winter wonderland calls a desperate need of this cream.

I love the softening ingredients in it, the hands feels delicate right after usage and the wrinkles, white lines due to dryness are all gone. The hydrating effect last even after a wash. But I need to reapply after 3 times of washing the hands. The simple hand cream also may be used for the whole family, from my husband to my daughter the mild eucalyptus scent is gentle and easily hidden under the olive.

When the skin on the hands are protected and hydrated, it will stays ‘young’ as well. Many people even say, ‘know someone’s age from their hands’, so keep them inside the ‘gloves’ of a hand cream and hide your age from your hands.

Sometime I uses the cream on my elbows and knees as well, comfortable!


Hi everyone!

It’s rainy season here in Jakarta and I love the cool breeze in the morning, it keep the sweats away as most days here is humid and so hot.

Humidity + heat equals sweats, sweats and sweats everywhere!

Deo for armpits? Check!
Body powder? Check!
Feet? Powders and deo wont do, I know I’ve tried many things before, until . . . 

Kiehl’s Cross-Terrain “Dry Run” Foot Cream.

Details from kiehls.com:

This unique, slip-resistant formula primes feet for any activity by providing a long-lasting dry feel. With sweat-absorbing volcanic extracts and soothing Aloe Vera, our cooling cream promotes relief from minor skin irritations and discomforts due to perspiration and the stresses and abuses incurred by active feet.
Apply to dry feet prior to activity. Allow to dry.

My say:

First of all, in MEN section?! I’m protesting! It should be in universal area. My husband feet are perfectly rarely sweats like I do, I am a major in sweaty feet (God knows why), I mean it! It’s like, my feet even sweats when wearing flip flops. And sweats equal to . . .  smell, euuhhhhhhhh  ⊙0⊙ .. ⊙︿⊙ .. ⊙ω⊙ .. ⊙﹏⊙ .. ⊙△⊙

Deo will make the feet so slippery and rarely really work, powders like talc will give white residue everywhere and made my feet seems infected by fungus or something and will lose the battle against the sweat as well.

So when Kiehl’s handed me this item (without knowing my problem whatsoever . . . or did they?) I kept being skeptical and put it on the shelve for weeks months. I don’t want to try it at first. Why? One, it is on the MEN section, two it is not in the universal section, three IT IS in the MEN section even on their website, and last but not least, they say it is for men, haha! Yes, I’ll make a big deal out of it.

Until, around 2-3 weeks ago, I’m trying it on my feet for the first time after so much hesitation and struggles (hyperbolic? Yes!). And the results are:

 I love it. It was amazing! Those who suffers sweaty feet like I do will definitely understand the feelings I get from having a smooth, soft, dry, comfortable feet, far from smelly and sweaty. The product is meant for those (men) who have a very active lifestyle, like sports (etc) or for those (men) with the feet that’s active on their own while the owner just sitting down in a couch watching TV. 

Now, I’m one of those who have active feet (on their own) when maybe most people wont have it. The white slightly yellowish lotion is light and smells good too,  kinda like a mixed between herbs and cooling agents. It gives the skin an instant cooling for a while and dry effect for a day. It’s like the lotion is tightening the pores so the sweats doesn’t come out as furious as before. Leaving the skin feels so good and velvety.

When I move my toes after the lotion is put on, like they have these ‘grip’ now. Before, it was slippery, sticky and unpleasant. The effect also last for hours and hours but at the end of the day when I’m taking a shower and the surface of the skin touches the water, it will become slippery, so careful when rinsing the feet, make sure the floor is not wet and clean them well with soap.

Overall, a very good, even great, product, for active feet which gives them a soft, smooth, velvety, dry, and very comfortable result instantly for those in sport shoes or stilettos!
