Hi everybody,

I’m here with Nivea Indonesia. Recently they’ve launch new products from the body series. Instead of plain regular lotion, the name body serum comes up, why?


dr. Hanny Nilasari, SpKK selaku staf pengajar Ilmu Kesehatan Kulit dan Kelamin FKUI-RSCMmenyatakan, Serum merupakan bahan tambahan dalam formulasi perawatan kulit dan dapat terserap lebih cepat dan dapat berpenetrasi hingga ke lapisan kulit yang lebih dalam. Seperti produk perawatan kulit lainnya, serum dapat bekerja sebagai anti-aging, dan membantu mencerahkan kulit. Kelebihan serum, kandungan bahan aktifnya cukup tinggi, sehingga penggunaan serum
akan menunjukkan hasil dalam waktu yang lebih singkat dibandingkan dengan pelembab biasa atau produk perawatan kulit lainnya.

-All details provided by Nivea Indonesia-


In the lovely box, there’s two products, a charm bracelet, CD, booklet and agenda.

I’m so interested with the body serum since this is my first time trying on Nivea’s Body Serum. For Nivea’s fan for more than 20 years, especially the body and lips product, I would like to keep myself in front with their latest item on the market.

-*-


The two new products is made to help brighten up the skin tone, one for the dry skin and one for the very dry skin. Please do watch my video here:

What do you think about that? Are you interested to try them on? Here’s some more facts I want to share with you.

Clearly if you’re an outdoor person and very active, sun protection is highly recommended for daily maintenance. Keep the skin hydrated and sun protected is crucial.

-*-

It’s not just for beauty reasons like keeping the skin fair, but kept them healthy. A healthy skin can work better as our natural barrier to the environment. Healthier skin also more elastic so they doesn’t get hurt easily and looks glowing with natural radiant too. Nivea Body Serum gives me option to stays active outdoor and indoor.

-*-

Indoor? Yes, all of us who stuck indoor either for classes or our jobs demands us to, also get sun rays from the windows. I’ve done a test where I sit in a car on the left side. The left part of my body tend to be dryer even thou the sun haven’t touched the skin directly, while the right part is moister since there’s zero sun rays, direct nor indirect. So even thou we’re not outdoor, anywhere the sun touches us (direct or indirect) our skin still ‘suffer’ the consequences.

Of course, I’m not denying the benefits of the sun (Vit D), but around 15 minutes a day is consider adequate. That’s why we need SPF on our skin daily to prolong that 15 minutes.

NIVEA Intensive Advanced Moisture Care Serum

Memberikan perawatan intensif untuk kulit kering

Body Serum yang diperkaya dengan 96% kemurnian Vitamin E dan Grape Seed Extract untuk mengatasi masalah kulit kering.

Rp. 15.000 (75 ml), Rp. 30.000 (200 ml)
-*-

Look at that with just Rp.30.000 per 200 ml, I think Nivea is quite generous, especially for a cheapskate (like me) heehee I thought the product will at least cost Rp 50.000, it’s not, hooray!

-*-


NIVEA UV Extra Whitening Advanced Moisture Care Serum
Melindungi kulit dari sinar matahari dan mencerahkan kulit dalam waktu 2 minggu.
Body Serum dengan kandungan Vitamin C dari Camu camu dan95% Purity Vitamin C derivative sebagai antioksidan, serta licorice extract untuk membantu proses pencerahan kulit.
Rp 15.000 (75ml), Rp 30.000(200 ml)

Either UV Extra Whitening Serum or Intensive Moisture Serum, your call ^^ I think both serum is light enough, smells good (original or fruity), doesn’t give my skin any white cast, oily nor greasy effect, but just the right amount of moisture, low price, comfortable on the skin and unisex too.

To ensure the optimal benefit, just be sure to use them every day and like any other product with SPF, clean the skin thoroughly after each usage.

Thank you.

Helloooo ^_____^

I’m just happy I can sit in front of my laptop and write again. Thank you so much for everyone, I’m much better now and can sit properly again … but not too long heehee, gradually I will regain my health. Surgery is not a thing we should take lightly and always consider it as the last option, I know I do, since it is super painful X__x

Now, back to the topic of health thingy, skin is one of the organ we need to protect every single day. By keeping them clean, moist and away from the bad side effect of the sun. Is it possible? Yes, if we live in a cave and only goes out 15 minutes during the morning and hide for the rest of the day. So? It is impossible to hide from the sun? Solution? Get a sun protection.

There are a rack full of sun protection in every drug store, cosmetics, and even supermarkets. From the one that waterproof, tinted, spray, gel, cream, lotion, to tanned formula. It’s like a jungle out there. But I need one that I can use daily with my makeup on without ruining it and easy for a quick touch up anytime I want to.

I’m glad to say this, “I found one!”. Belif Awesome Sun Powder SPF 50+ PA+++.


-*-

I met this products months and months ago (I think it’s almost a year now) and still loving it as if it was my first love. The attractive packaging and bright yellow color is something hard to be missed.

-*-


Sold for Rp 240.000 in Indonesia.

-*-



Here’s inside the packaging. A pot of compact powder, mirror and a puff. Hmm, where’s the sun protection? It’s the powder!

-*-

Perfect for those who hates sticky sun protection, glossy sunblocks, white cast caused by lotion of sun screen, and those who can’t find the exact same tone of sun lotion for their skin where it might be in BB Cream or tinted moisturizer.

The powder has a light texture and transparent after setting. So it doesn’t even visible to the naked eye. Since it is not a lotion/gel/cream/water it doesn’t have the side effect of products with those kinds of texture.

We need to use sun protection daily and for me this powder is a wonderful addition to my daily routine since it can be done after the makeup is set and retouch anytime.

How to use:
Carefully use the puff and puff away everywhere on the skin where’s needed, facial and/or body, and make sure all the parts are covered. Use it anytime I feel like it and since it is SPF 50+ it does stay all day long. I do touch up after sweating or getting wet (ex: by rain).

Who do I recommend the product for:
Anyone. Men, women, boys, and girls.

-*-


Thank you Belif Indonesia.

Hello sunshine,
like seriously, don’t you think the sun shines brightly these days? I feel the sun has been glaring at me everyday and the heat is just too much.


I like to use sun protection but let’s face it, some are just too sticky and not an all in one, face and body product. Most of the good stuff are for the face, either tinted or in a form of a BB Cream or CC Cream. They are great alright, but the skin on my body need some attention too.

-*-



Look what come knocking at my door yesterday? Yes, Biore Singapore has sent me these goodies. A bowl, a love letter, lemon and their newest item from the BIORE UV family. Aqua Rich, a watery essence water based SPF 50+ PA+++

I wonder why there’s a lemon in the set? Oh, the freshness of Aqua Rich and there’s lemon extract in the ingredients as well. But the bowl? I guess when life gives me lemon, I made lemonade? Or Lemon squash salad ^__^

-*-


This is the product. Long before this one come, I’m already a fan of Biore’s sunblock as they have this amazing lightness in every drop and water-based too. Say bye bye to white cast during photo shoot and hello to the sun without being afraid.

The packaging is neat (like most Japanese product), simple and all the details are written on the paper card attached to the tube.

-*-





Let me jotted down the fine prints:

Forget about the heavy, sticky feel of regular sunscreens! This water-rich UV Essence feels surprisingly light and cool, like water on your skin, absorbing instantly for an invisible, weightless finish.

With Biore’s breakthrough technology, the UV block ingredients are contained within the Aqua Micro Capsule to provide SPF 50+/ PA+++ protection while keeping your skin cool and refreshed.


And some other details ^__^

Double UV Block from the UVA (skin aging) and UVB (skin burning).

With Hyaluronic acid & Citrus extract to keep skin hydrated and healthy. Extract of orange, grapefruit and lemon is there.

Unique Aqua Micro Capsules releases moisture upon application, leaving skin with a cool, light feeling with a mild fresh fruity (zesty) fragrance.

Usage: Apply evenly on face after moisturizer and before makeup. Re-apply after excessive perspiration. As with all sunscreens, cleanse thoroughly with a makeup remover.

-*-



This tube is around 50g, I’m already getting ahead of myself feeling so sure it will be a very wonderful product.

-*-




There it is, a light yellowish creamy super light gel, it almost feels like a dense mousse. So soft to the touch and watery too. Moist in a hydrating way where the skin feels supple instantly with no oil or greasy effect whatsoever.

-*-




I place the Aqua Rich in several different places on a cleaned moisturized face.

I love the refreshing scent, indeed unlike most sun protection where I noticed that distinctive sun block scent. Aqua Rich different, different is good. 

-*-



I’ve noticed these tiny white spots when the Essence is spread, then by a simple massaging movement they are all gone. Without a trace. Like the skin just consume all of it. The feeling and sensation it gives is refreshing, hydrating and light, so light it was like wearing nothing.

-*-





This is the zoom-ed photo after 4 seconds massaging the essence into the skin. No pressure is needed, just gently rubs them on the skin. This is amazing. No residue, no greasiness, no oily, no white cast, no sticky feeling, no stickiness to the touch, just a soft hydrated skin.

-*-


Above is me after using the Aqua Rich, I love it so much and will definitely recommend the product to be used on daily basis, face and body, any gender and on almost any age (I have to check whether it is suitable for babies ^__–)

-*-



While other sunblock will usually ‘bothers’ the usage of makeup afterward, Aqua Rich wont.

Overall,

love love love.

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+/PA+++ is available all around the world including Japan and Singapore.





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.


Minna-san, konnichiwa.

After a series period of time trying this adorable mousse from Shu Uemura, it will be jotted down here. Mousse is not a strange item in the Shu’s family, in fact since 1990, the first mousse is made. By keep innovating and recreating POREraser is presented. A UV Under Base Mousse that not just protecting the skin with SPF 35 PA+++, but it perfecting the pore so the look become finer and less problems.

Problem? Such as oiliness.

-*-




The luscious mousse I have is in beige, please read the previous post regarding the event of PORErase (HERE). Once pump it is enough for the whole face and neck. I like to apply some until decollete as well when using a low cut dress/shirt.

It is better to shake the bottle for a while before pressing the pump.

-*-



Usually, I’ll put the foam on the back of my hand. The mousse may be used with a brush or a wet sponge. This time, I’ll use my fingers as tools.

Put the mousse on a cleaned, toned, serumed and moisturized skin.

-*-


The oh-so-familiar smell of the mousse, like a milky powdery foam. There’s a faint sound of the tiny bubbles popping, burrssssssstttttttttttt.

-*-

Before all the small bubbles pop out, hurry, blend them well on the skin so the texture and formula remains airy light, like how it meant to be made.

-*-



After the mousse is distributed well, wait for a while for them to sets in. Normal liquid base will take around 3-5 minutes (and some also up to 10 minutes), UV Under Base Mousse is up to 1 minute only.

-*-



In 5 minutes, I notice a visible difference as the skin looks more luminous, and the skin tone looks even-er, it helps retain the oiliness without being dull as well. I can see the skin remains ‘charming’. Of course since it is a base, foundation may be added afterwards for a more desired effect. But just using the UV Under Base Mouse POREraser the skin already looks ‘clean-er’.

-*-




This is me using PORErase alone after 1 hour, without adding foundation, powder, or even loose powder. Apparently the mousse will keep adjusting and blending into the skin. Giving me an even complexion with a natural healthy look, far less visible pores, radiant without being greasy nor oily.

Definitely one of my favorite items for being so unique in texture (mousse), so light (as if using nothing). easy to apply, and gives great result (finer pores and even complexion). I just wish it comes in higher SPF =^__^=

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?

Join me in a beauty class, register HERE.


Hello everyone!

Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions presents you An Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream or in short, BB Cream by Kiehl’s.

In Indonesia I’ve seen 3 of their shades and mine is in Light.


Details from the packaging.

This dual-action, instantly perfecting tinted formula visibly unifies skin tone, while actively correcting existing skin tone irregularities and preventing the formation of new ones. Formulated with high level of Vitamin C, known for its powerful instant beautification. This all-in-one treatment also helps reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines, provides all-day hydration, and broad spectrum SPF 50 PA+++ protection. The lightweight, build-able coverage instantly conceals imperfections and blemishes, while significantly improving tone and texture for long-lasting luminosity. Paraben Free. Fragrance Free.

May be used alone or under foundation.

I’ve been having the product for more than a month now and use it as well. The tone Light is somewhat my skin tone but I hope Kiehl’s Indonesia to bring the whole shades to Indonesia ^__^ so we have more options. I’m not really a fan of the shine effect, it reminds me of their original sun protection, also in SPF 50 PA +++. The BB Cream is not as shiny as the original sun protection, the tinted does help tone down the shine, but still, there are some mild shines visible. Good news if you’re looking for a BB Cream that enhance radiance.

I need a loose powder or compact powder to help mattefies the skin. But again, if you love looking radiant, powders wont be necessary.

I love the high SPF in it especially during traveling and touch up is minimum.

I like the smell, even thou’ it’s not scented, the smell is pleasing and kinda herbal-ly. The BB Cream also not sticky on the skin, the feeling is velvety and smooth. Gives my skin a light coverage and brighten my look as well. Hide some large pores and gives the skin a better complexion. The Vit C in the long run will help clearing those dark spots and add vitality on the skin too.

The light coverage can be increased by keep adding the BB Cream to the skin gradually but I think medium coverage is max. For full coverage? A dose of foundation afterwards and some concealers is needed.

Overall? Another great product from Kiehl’s that protect the skin from the sun, large pores and other imperfections. Suitable for daily use, but remember to clean the skin thoroughly after use with double cleansing method.

The BB Cream can be used with or without makeup. Smooth and velvety effect on the skin with a mild shine. Suitable for long wear and outdoor in the sun.


Hi gorgeous!

I’ve got some awesome products from Luxola which I’m not familiar or event heard of, so I’ve been studying, learning, trying and using it since I get back from Singapore, which is 3 weeks ago. So pretty much there’s been test drives of these samples and they were awesome!

Please do click on http://www.luzernlabs.com and learn about them, they are organic, real products that carry no parabens, preservatives, synthetic fragrances and many many other ingredients that proven bad or suspiciously bad for your skin in a short term or long run.

And after trying them one by one I was completely in to them as they proven to be so effective and good to the skin as well and unconventional. Let’s start one by one.



Pure Cleansing Gelee


Re-Balancing, Deep-Cleansing & Decongesting Soap-Free Gel Cleanser

This pure and refreshing, oil-free, sulfate-free cleanser removes surface impurities without stripping, drying or irritating. Gentle enough for delicate skin, yet dissolves every trace of makeup and dirt. For all skin types, especially normal, combination, or oily. Also great for sensitive or acne-prone skin. FORMULATED WITHOUT: – Preservatives – Parabens – Sulfates – Propylene Glycol – Synthetic Fragrances – Synthetic Dyes – Petro-Chemicals – Phthalates

Rinse or remove with a wash cloth and pat face dry. Gentle enough to be used for extensive facial cleansing. Remove stubborn cosmetic pigment around eyes and lips. Removes makeup, debris, and dirt thoroughly.

I didn’t expect much, well for sure, I didn’t expect anything from it, yes, it’s from Swiss, one of my favorite country in the world, yes, the product look sophisticated and high tech too, seems like made with precisions, and so on, and when I looked at the gel, it was clear, no scent and doesn’t foam much. I thought it was just a bummer, since usually the one that doesn’t foam doesn’t made the skin ‘feels’ clean. This one just does it. It cleans my skin, even thou’ I’m not that brave in using it as a makeup remover all at once I did trust it as a second wash after my waterproof makeup remover, which usually I use the one that foams, like abundant of foam. This one gives me minimum foam.

The gel clean the skin like non other, it’s unique, refreshing and still kept the moist but the feeling is still clean. There are some product that claimed to clean without striping the moisture but actually just doesn’t clean well. This one actually cleanses the skin while keeping them soft and supple. My husband have an oily, angry and easily irritated skin with high sensitivity and his skin looks relaxed and calm when usually red and angry (especially during traveling). Planes causes his skin to dry and now he just got back from a business trip and his skin looks well. I’m impressed!


WE3

Stem Cell + Advanced Peptide Triple-Action Wrinkle Eraser

Now eliminate wrinkles without toxins, lasers or injections. This triple performance treatment penetrates deeply to encourage intensive cellular repair and diminish signs of imperfection. Swiss apple stem cells, pure amino-peptides and Bio-Swiss organic Alpine extracts virtually lift away surface lines and wrinkles.

Application: Squeeze 3-5 drops into palm of hand and apply to cleansed skin AM and PM. Follow with another anti-aging/repair Serum Absolut if desired, and then with your moisturizer. If irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately.

This one definitely does it! Careful thou’ not to use it too much. I know for sure the ingredients are active or at least activates something inside our skin, I uses too much for the first 3 days and redness appears on my forehead. No, not acne, like red bump that disappears immediately 24 hours after I stopped the serum. I think next time I stick to 2 drops only or maximum 3 drops. It was really really effective. It stimulate the skin for visible hydration, smoothness and healthier skin. Again, just don’t use it too much. If you want to check whether your skin can take it or not, try bit by bit for a while, like 1-2 drops twice daily on a cleaned skin, this is a pre-serum, which used before the serum. And after around 3 days if you think your skin can take it use as suggested 2-3 drops twice daily.

I’ll keep using it as the clear thick water is just lovely and even thou’ the laughing lines are still visible, the finer one like near the eyes and on forehead are actually gets finer and finer week after week.

Since I only have the sample size, that’s all the review I can give right now for using it around 2 weeks.

At first the white lotion need to be shaken inside the tube since the first thing coming out is like waters, white spots and after shaking it for a while a smooth white lotion coming out. Feels light and again with no expectation, I was in awe. The white lotion at first look, feel and seems so white on the face after application. I expect some shines and glow like conventional sun protection, this one does not. The whitish look turn into clear in a matter of minutes and looks so natural. No shines, no greasy look, it’s just so clear, yes, it is transparent. I love this product so much as it can really be use daily without the need to cover the shines (like made by other sunblocks) .

Overall, Luzern Laboratories items shown here are amazing and highly recommended to try them. And hmm, Luxola really meant it when they say all the products/brands carries in their online shops are really the one that they love and may I said kudos to them for actually proved to be searching products that’s really really good. I know for sure there’s gazillions of products out there and they seems to scoop out best things that haven’t been around in Asia yet. Wow!

Hi everyone ^0^

Snails products are everywhere nowadays and it seems to be a hit in the town. Snails are known to have a regenerating effect on their ehm, slime.

Details from the packaging:


This BB Cream contains 50% snail secretion filtrate (mucin) that keeps the skin moist and firm by forming a protective film over the skin. It makes the skin healthy and radiant. The massage function of an all in one puff improves your skin’s complexion and makes your skin look radiant. Its excellent adherence and coverage function keep your makeup for long hours.

How To Use:

1) To create natural, radiant skin: Open by pulling the cap off, and hold the puff facing downward. Gently press the middle of the container, and dispnece a small amount onto the puff. Apply evently to your face in a massaging motion.

2) To create flawless, transparent skin: Turn the cap until the pointed part appears. Gently press the middle of the container, and dispense a small amount and apply evenly on your face.

On the packaging there’s two puff provided, one attached and the other one still in the plastic shown above. Clean the puff after each use with lukewarm water.

I like the packaging, the large tube is big alright, but I don’t have to bring it everywhere since the staying power is moderately long, I use it for 5-6 hours and it stays on. I think it can stay on longer too. The multifunction cream that gives coverage and sun protection in the same time is always welcome in my makeup box. I use it daily (daytime). I didn’t feel it being oily and let’s just say the BB Cream pampers my skin while giving it a nice look too ^__^

Remember that this not that raw material secretive from the snail, so do not jump into your garden and apply the liquid coming out from a snail when you see one. The mucin in the product are already going through some process for hygienic reason and efficacy. So only the important ingredients in the mucin are used.

Below is me using the Snail Therapy 50 BB Cream SPF30 PA+++ with the puff (as I think the attached puff is a unique and wonderful idea)

The BB Cream is light, covers and feels really good. I was pretty afraid at first and heehee it’s a secretive from a snail, I’m thinking some gooey….slimy…. errr, just not pretty. Let’s just say I’m hesitated at first but the minute it touches my skin, all the hesitation and doubtfulness just melt away. The after image is just me the BB Cream, it felt velvety smooth and any powder haven’t been added. Definitely gives me an even skin tone, redness and fine lines are gone and dryness? Unlike other BB cream, the Snail Therapy gives the skin a comfort without drying the skin.

Below is my step by step usage.

The puff started as a light cream colored, then when the BB Cream is out a deeper beige lotion cum cream comes out, I dabbed it on and the puff works so well, the spreading, applying, blending process becomes so easy and for a clean-freak-enthusiast like me, it’s the perfect tool to minimize fingers intervention. there are some parts that need small brush or sponge with edges for areas hidden by the sides of the nose and delicates like eye’s area.

Overall, it’s a must try snail-inspired-contained product where safety and effectiveness shown ^0^ Love it!

Tips: For daily use or a natural look, just add some loose powder on top, no need adding more foundation. Always use a moisturizer before BB Cream (any BB Cream) and if you want some concealer may be added on some part before the BB Cream, it is also possible.

Thank you Nature Republic Indonesia.

The event at Tartine, will soon begin, in anticipation the whole room is filled with beauty bloggers.



None of us completely clueless about Skin Aqua, but we want to hear more. There is also a machine that can check our aging process due to the sun, it was so crowded, I didn’t get a chance to try it.
Some bloggers are afraid since the result is scary heehee.

But sun does gives us ‘scary’ skin if we didn’t protect our skin from the bad rays. Not all rays are bad, only some. Skin Aqua protects us from some bad rays from the sun.




Ms Ditta (Skin Aqua) , Fukura Akiyoshi (PT.Rohto) , and Arinda Christ. They are the hosts, they are sharing product details from Skin Aqua, the background of the company and current trends.


These are the main attraction in the event. Skin Aqua products. We were able to try them on the spot and some other brand from PT. Rohto such as Lip on Lip.

This is me and Priscil, after the event we manage to take some picture together.



Unfortunately the event have to end and I have to go back home, below is my review for the Aqua Skin ^__^ but first a bit glimpse of Lip On Lip

.



A review for Lip on Lip will soon comes up too heehee.


Now, let’s enjoy the review for Aqua Skin.


Since my skin is dry, I get mine in UV Mild Milk. And actually, this is not my first time using Aqua Skin, in Singapore and Japan the product is widely used and available in almost all beauty store, I’ve try them when I still lived in Singapore years ago and amazed by how light Aqua Skin is.

.

What makes Skin Aqua different from sun block? The ingredients! Skin Aqua mainly focused on hydration, that’s why it is called Skin Aqua . . . Aqua, as in H2O. Skin Aqua also contains Vit E and Collagen that beneficial to our skin. We’ve heard a lot about Hyaluronic Acid as it brings hydration, in Skin Aqua the Hyaluronic Acid has been modified to absorb better  and stays longer on the skin. Skin Aqua can be used daily and not just ‘can be used’, they are beneficial to our skin. Protects from the bad rays of the sun, moist and hydrated the skin, and with the Vit E, an antioxidant to the skin too.

.

I get 4 samples sizes as well, but 2 are the same, so 3 of them are UV Moisture Milk, UV Whitening Milk and UV Mild Milk. Take note only the UV Moisture Milk contains SPF 50 PA+++ while the others are SPF 25 PA ++ and SPF 20 PA ++, so the UV Moisture Milk is the highest SPF in all three (four if including Moisture Gel SPF 30 PA ++)

.



Here’s what’s amazing, in terms of texture, UV Moisture Milk is the lightest while UV Mild Milk turns to be the creamiest, perfect for dry skin.

But all three are comfortable and delightful to be used daily. Take note that they are not sun blocks ya, so if you stays in the beach for hours when the sun is up there, or other kind of outdoor sports, please use sun blocks instead of Skin Aqua. Skin Aqua is perfect to be used daily, indoors and normal exposure of outdoor without being too much.

Say good bye to sticky sun block, say hello to Skin Aqua for daily use, comfortable, smooth, soft skin protected from the sun.
