Hi ladies,

who loves spa? I do!!!

I raise both hands and feet (if I could) haha! It’s like pampering time is here! Unfortunately, not all of us has the luxury to spend time (and money) at the spa. So, I try to create the spa at my home, using scrubs, body butter, scented candles and so on.

One brand that is familiar with spa in Indonesia is called Dewi Sri Spa. On this opportunity I’m trying one of their collection called Peach Delima Body Foam.


Details from

Peach Delima Signature Series

Exotism of peach and delima has inspired various cultures from the ancient time. Delima (Punica granatum) represent eternity, lavish and fertility. Both are riched with vitamin C, vitamin A and poliferol as antioxidant and promote a fresh, smooth, healthy-looking complexion.

With a self foaming device the product burst out lovely foam with a rather sharp to the nose scent of peach delima. For the whole body I think it took around 10 pumps. I did try to enjoy the scent and benefit, which hmm, I can’t seem to experience. The cleansing properties is okay, I guess, but there’s no adequate freshness to it nor healthy looking complexion. In fact, I can easily replace the product with any other kind of body foam with a cost far less.


Sorry to say this item get more negative feedback from me. The Rp.100k ++ price is too much for a 2 weeks usage (2x a day). The scent is a bit sharp on the nose and the I don’t see any ‘real’ benefits to the skin.

Hello ladies,

I think by now the brand Paula’s Choice has been heard several times by many beauty bloggers. And since years ago they did land in Indonesia. So they offer me to try some samples from their skincare, cosmetics, and body series.

Sachets samples are given, so I can’t say much about them, just first experiences. And I wont share many details as well since I can’t share much within the 2-5 ml(s) items. Rest assure all of them are available at


There are: Optimal result hydrating cleanser, weekly resurfacing treatment (10% AHA), Daily smoothing treatment (5% AHA), Skin recovery moisturizer, Advanced replenish toner, Skin recovery daily moisturizing lotion with SPF 15, Skin recovery moisturizer, and Resist pure radiance skin brightening treatment, skin recovery super antioxidant concentrate serum.

There are a number of trial and errors since the team from Paula’s Choice Indonesia doesn’t exactly know my skin condition, so the first batch of cleanser for dry skin doesn’t work well on me. Maybe it is for a super dry skin with flakiness. On me the cleanser leave so many leftovers, even for daily debris. When I swipe a cotton of toner, there will be residue of the stuff left uncleaned. 

The toner is okay and hydrating, this one I can use, but a big no no for anything with AHA and BHA from Paula’s Choice. I can’t stand it. The BHA immediately causes the hands to feel numb and itchy, while the AHA on the face causing acne.

The serum and moisturizer is okay but I dislike the scent and the super rich texture. In the end the first batch ends in almost failure. However, the Paula’s team in Indonesia are not a bunch of people who would easily gave up on me, and so do I. I think it’s just a matter of finding the right products for my skin.

The only thing from the first batch that I haven’t try is the Resist pure radiance skin brightening treatment, which I’ll share with you along with the second batch.


So on the second batch they send me more items. Most of them works really well on my skin, so yes, there’s a progress in finding my match ^^. The first item I’ve tried is the Gentle touch makeup remover. It works really well in cleaning the makeup, from the base (look at the image above) and even waterproof mascara and eyeliners (image below) without causing the skin to stress out. No discomfort, no allergies, no itchiness, just a good gentle yet effective cleanser. This is what I need.


And then I followed up with a Moisture boost one step face cleanser and failed. It doesn’t help me in cleaning the residue, and when I use it again the day after without any makeup on, so just for cleaning daily residue (sebum, daily dirts, etc) it still left some. So when I swipe a cotton pad filled with toner, there are dirt, and I can feel the sebum are untouched. I know the difference between a cleanser that does a great job in cleaning yet the skin still feels so moist and soft and supple, but this moisture boost one step face cleanser left too much, even the skin doesn’t feel clean.


Now, how about the rest? The Beautiful body butter is a simple body butter without that oily effect that most body butter have. Suitable for those with sensitive skin since it contain no fragrance whatsoever, I need fragrance on my toiletries heehee! So, I think that’s the only low point on this particular item. The while body butter is easily apply without any stickiness nor grease, so hooray for that.

Wow! It’s been up and down hasn’t it?! It is the reality of skincare and other products, some does work on me, while some just doesn’t. The following item works well on me too, the one item from the first batch I haven’t try: Resist pure radiance skin brightening treatment. This pearly glow product is like a wonder. easily applied on the skin and sunk in leaving the skin soft and for the 5x1ml I can’t say anything about the effective brightening effect, but so far, none from this item bothers me. I love the texture, the feeling on my skin, the natural scent from the ingredients, it is lovely and I’ll keep using it for sure.

Last but not least is the Barely there sheer matte tint in sheer ivory, hmm, it was a tone too dark on me. I look like I just spend a day in the sun on the beach. And for me it’s not barely there, it was  completely there, the coverage is sheer but the feeling is thicker than barely there. After a while, the skin feels itchy too. So, I don’t think this is my favorite product either.

I have one more item, and it’s not a sample size (yippie!!). A Weightless body treatment to help treat my sis’s keratosis pilaris condition on her upper arms. It will be discuss and deliberated on my next post, it might take a while, since a thorough review take weeks up to a month of usage before posting.

So far I have up and down experiences with Paula’s Choice products, but I think since they do have a wide varieties of the products I can choose, I’m still positive in finding more items that are made for me.

Thank you.

Hello everyone!!!

This item was a gift from Stephanie Nangoi, thanks babe! And she said she doesn’t like the scent, hence instead of throwing it away, she gave it to me which I received it, gladly haha! I love Soap & Glory, I think their stuffs are adorably pink and I love toiletries as well.

And the scent is the one thing she can’t stand off, that’s the first thing I’ve done, sniff it! This product has an odd start with me, the scent was kinda sharp and spiky at first to the nose, but something happens.


With babassu oil, sea salt and moisturising jojoba and mandarin oils. Scented with our Mist You Madly™ fragrance.

Instructions for Use

Scoop out a handful and rub it all over, then rinse. Smear our Daily Smooth Body Butter on top (it has the same sexy smell!), if you want to maximize the moisturize.


Insisted on trying the product I scoop a handful of this pink gooey hard big sea salts where tiny blue dots are everywhere (what are those) and start rubbing it off against my skin, and there it is. The scent start to evolve and tone down a bit. I start noticing a very vivid scent which I usually experienced when I’m entering a 5 stars hotels, the smell of a clean, fresh and comfortable room. That’s the smell! I have to admit that I enjoy the scent so much.

Move on to the texture, the sea salts are big alright and feels rough on the skin, and since it was really big, a lot of them goes down the drain before even buffing the skin. The product can be used on dry or damp skin and again, since the sea salt are big even though the skin is wet, they easily dissolve, it actually took them a while before dissolving. The scrubbing can goes as long or as short as you want it to, and depends on your moods.

Result? A soft and smooth skin with this memorable aroma that I enjoy for about 30 minutes to 1 hour after the shower, the oils help the skin to stay moist and the scrubbing effect help the blood circulation under the skin.

Overall, it’s a scrub that does buffing, pampering and aromatic (if you happens to like the scent like I do) and gives the result just as it is.

Ollaaaaa ^__^

This is a toiletries from one of my favorite brand, The Body Shop. They have massive variety of lovable things, I wish more brands comes up with more variation, even more than TBS in Indonesia. We need variation, put your hands up everyone who agrees!

From Satsuma, Mango, Moringa to Cherry and Cherry Blossom, their body butters are irresistible. I know customers from 8 to 50 years old are craving for this stuff. They come in many varieties, scent, benefit and different thickness. Some for super dry skin, dry skin, to normal skin condition.


Details from

Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Butter

An intensive, rich and fragrant all-over body moisturiser with the decadent Japanese cherry blossom fragrance. Absorbs into the skin easily to condition and soften. Provides moisturisation that lasts up to 24 hours.


The aroma of sakura is flying from the pot. It is spring in Japan right now and for a minute there, my addiction to Japan has been cured. I love the sweet floral aroma, it’s something feminine, girly, and delicious at the same time.


The skin instantly gain moisture and looks glossy. Healthier, plump and smells goooooooooood. I miss Japan so bad @o@, I wish I can stay there anytime I want to ^__^

Okay, sorry, a bit euphoria there, back to the review. The Japanese Cherry Blossom provide a lovely scent, with just enough moist effect for my normal skin type in a hot and humid Jakarta. No more white stripes when scratch and hello pretty skin for almost all day long. I know it does say 24 hour, but I take a shower 2x a day (mostly) and use another dose of the body butter without being able to test the 24 hour but I think they might just do 24 hour like mentioned.

Hi everybody,

this item is unisex and I’ve been using it for a while and so does my hubby. He loves the bursting menthol coolness and I’m looking forward for the sebum-free scalp.

We get our in Tokyo last month for around 500 Yen a bottle which many resellers sells it for 5x the original price. Yikes!


The details given from the website is clear enough, so let me share the feeling and experience of using the product and the result so far.


Most shampoo has to be used on wet hair and after being lathered. This one is different. Put the liquid directly on wet scalp. Add a bit more water and massage the scalp. The lathers are light but not the menthol.


The first time I used it is in the morning and it was super duper cold. Like freezing cold. The whole scalp become energized and I’m fully awake alright @_@ thanks to the high menthol feeling. It was an experience that hard to forget. My husband enjoy the mints so much even thou’ he doesn’t have oily scalp.

Yes, this product is beneficial for those with  oily scalp like me. The scalp remain feeling clean and sebum free for hours. It does stays sebum free far less longer than other shampoo I’ve used. Which means the product also made the hair dry. I need a conditioner / mask with high moisturizing effect for the hair strands since my scalp is oily and the hair is brittle and dry.

Will I keep using it? Yes, around 2-3 times a week or when the scalp feels super oily or when I need my hair to stay limp-free longer.

The menthol feeling stays on the scalp for almost a full hour, perfect for hot summer days.

Not recommended for those with dry scalp condition.

 And today I’m going to share some of them which I have at home and have tried it for the review.



First, is the Mint Sorbet shampoo, I’m very excited to see this one since I’ve been looking for minty shampoo for normal hair. Yes, the details said to prevent dandruff as well, prevent is not the same like other over the counter products which is definitely for occurring dandruff.

I wish for a cold breeze but receive a slightly tingling and cool reaction. My husband said he needs something more mint than these shampoos, but perhaps he is used with the very cold shampoo ^__^

Let’s do the chart:

minty feeling: 2 out of 5

cleaning service: 4 out of 5
soften the hair: 3 out of 5

Overall, a good shampoo which cleanse the hair and scalp with a mild mint flavour.



So you want something minty, huh?! This one does it, hubby approved! ^__^ A serious mint in given with a very wonderful scent. I love the mint refreshing scent which stays on like perfume for the whole day.

We use the Mint Sorbet Hair Messag Cream after the shampoo and towel dried hair. 3/4 of the palm is enough for me and 1/3 of palm for hubby. I prefer the cream to be all over my hair and avoiding the scalp, while he is all over with the scalp involved too, he experienced more frosting mint while I enjoy the scent only. So if used all the way from the scalp, you’ll experience the mints as well.

After usage: The normal hair will become so soft, smooth and glossy too, while my damaged hair will looks tangled free, smoother  (but still not as smooth as those with normal hair) and enjoy smelling good like normal hair do too.


The funny thing is that in the cream have these tiny beads (baby blue colored) which looks and feel like a scrub. I thought they will burst when massage into the hair or at the palms, but they don’t. So is it a scalp/hair scrubber? Perhaps. I’m clueless heehee.


Next is the black chocolate, ooohhhhh \^0^/ I’ve tried the shampoo before (Click: HERE) which gives me a soft and smooth hair, (but still needed some conditioner) now, here are the conditioner. A light chocolate cream which looks like liquid chocolate literally and smells like liquid chocolate too. It was a unique experience, the exterior features really encourage me to lick them, which I didn’t, hello, self control O.O Careful thou’ you’ve been warned.

The result of using the conditioner is a softer hair, here’s the chart:

Tangle-free: 3 out of 5
shine added: 3 out of 5

healed broken hair: 2 out of 5
revitalize the hair : 3 out of 5
unique experience plus texture: 5 out of 5

Overall, it’s a good product with natural ingredients which gives the hair a softer and smoother feeling and a whole lotta chocolate.

Still think the conditioner not chocolate enough?

This one will!



A super duper dose of chocolate is seriously found here. It’s not just chocolate mousse texture but heavy pudding chocolate mousse with density and thickness and dose ^__^ Pulled it out of the jar need a bit effort since the opening is small and a bit sharp on the edges, I wish it came in bigger ‘mouth’.


I put the chocolate paste on my shampooed and toweled dry hair, the sensation it created is indulging and for any chocolate lover it will be an experience they longed for. Imagine a hard day at work and get back in a pampering routine with the most famous ingredients in the world that gives relaxing effect. I even crave some chocolate just buy smelling it.

I leave it on like any other hair treatment products, using a shower cap, I leave it on for 15-2o minutes and rinse it well. The after effect is an all day long chocolate scent with soft, detangled hair and fuller feeling. Like they just added some body to the hair.


Now, we moved on to the next level, a Body Scrub Seaweed. A muddy light green scrub with very tiny beads, even the Minty Sorbet Hair Massage Cream have bigger beads ^__– and the scent is almost like seaweed too, so it would be something like sea breeze.

The opening is super small, I can only put a finger in to get the scrub out. The texture is thick but not as thick as Black Chocolate Hair Massage Cream. I use it on a damp skin and the light scrubbing action able to clean the skin and not overdo it. Instead of dry skin, the Seaweed Scrub gives me a plump dewy skin afterwards.


 The skin become softer and gently removed dead skin with no harshness. Suitable to be used several times a week. I’ve used it after and without shower gel/foam the result is just the same, a bouncy and happy skin after usage.
 Last, it’s the item which I recently use, the Strawberry Yoghurt.
The scent is just like any strawberry yoghurt I found in supermarkets. The clear gel texture is cleaning the hair and gives a silky finish. I do need a conditioner afterwards. Suitable for those who are looking for a strawberry yoghurt scent but I think the overall effect can be found in the Hair Message Cream.

So far I’ve been experimenting and mixed a bit, the chocolate and mint can be mixed, the mint sorbet for the scalp and chocolate for the dry hair, the result is like a well blended choco-mint ice cream, delicious!!! The scalp get energized with the minty feeling and the hair become smooth and nourished with the black chocolate.

Thank you Makarizo Indonesia.
Stay tune for more juicilicious hair and body products.

Hello everyone,

these are very special items which I’m blessed to try them on my self and my husband’s as well. Yes, the variant here given are actually for men, from Belif Cosmetics called Manology 101.


There are a total of 5 items specially made for men. 2 for the body, 3 for the face. In this opportunity I would like to share the products for the body.

First of all, I’m so happy and glad finally there’s products for men in the market without being too harsh nor ‘too much’. Locally, men are considered so ‘dirty’, oily, dandruff-y (hair), dull and need whitening products, seriously, I went to many places (local supermarkets/store) for over the counter products and some luxury brands, most of them sells items for body odors, over sweats, greasy, oily and dull skinned man. My man is NOT in those category. He is considered as a well-groomed person who longed for a simple products fits to his needs without being too much.

Gladly, he found belif Manology 101. Hooray!


Product Description

Body washfor men with natural cleansing ingredients. Removes impurities gently yeteffectively to keep the body’s skin texture hydrated and elastic. Formulated with Mallow ingredient that prevents skin troubles, leaving skin clean and full of vitality.

No addition of

Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients or alcohol.

To Use

Dispense a sufficient amount on a sponge or hands, work into a rich lather, rub over entire body and rinse with water.


On the bottle it is written there’s mallow, soapberry, sweet flag, Napiers original formula that I seriously doesn’t have a clue of what it is, but I can tell you for sure how wonderful they smell and effect on the skin. Let’s do a He says (hubby) and She says (me) shall we?!


Regarding the thick white creamy texture:

He: It’s okay, nothing to complain.
She: I love how rich it felt and on the skin, the creamy gel glide effortlessly. Luxurious all over and feels pampering.

The scent:

He: Refreshing and smells really good. It’s a nice option compared to most products for men out there. Is there a ginger in it?
She: It’s a mix between something citrus and something warm like ginger. The product smells really energizing, like it said in the packaging. Sniffing it makes me feels like I’m in a spa.


The Bubbling Action:

He: There’s a lot of bubbles, nice!
She: I love how easy they lathered up and the soft bubbling action makes me use less than other body wash. And every pop! There’s goes the scent happily flying in the air. The whole bathroom smells good…..yes, I’m a big fan of the scent.

When using it:

He: It seems like they do the job well, cleaning the skin and not so slippery but I can feel the lathers clean the skin well, with a slight warming sensation on the skin.
She: I feel like I’m pampered. The lathers is rich, fluffy and using a sponge would definitely add more bubbles and foam making it more fun and energizing as it lifts up my mood. A definite mood booster.
When rinsing and after effect:

He: Easily rinse and doesn’t leave the skin feeling squeaky dry nor slippery. So I’m good to go as it seems like the product gives the skin a good cleansing action, smells good (without being girlie or smells like flowers) and the skin which sometime itch due to other soaps, feels not itchy at all. The skin which usually easily irritated looks calm and fresh. I like the combination of feeling clean without overly stripe off the moisture. I will definitely keep using the product and recommend it to my fellow mates.

She: Oohhh, this is really good. I know for sure there are a lot of soaps and body cleanser out there that striping off the moisture from the skin, so the skin feels like floor and irritated. Energizing Body Wash from belif is far from that. It is superbly wonderful. After rinsing, I can immediately feel the skin being energized, cleaned, yet still hydrated and moist. I love the lasting warmth sensation, not hot, but warm. I know this product is for men, but I’ll sneak in once in a while and enjoy it as well. For me it’s irresistible.

After the invigorating shower experience, we’ll move on to the emulsion.


Product Description

Energizing body emulsion for men that is applied to the skin without stickiness, leaving the skin silky and firm. Formulated with Lavender Oil and Arnica flower extracts that prevent dryness and enhance vitality in the skin.

No addition of

Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients or alcohol.

To Use

After shower or bath, dispense a sufficient amount and massage gently over entire body.


Emulsion, what is an emulsion? Based on


  1. A fine dispersion of minute droplets of one liquid in another in which it is not soluble or miscible.
  2. A light-sensitive coating for photographic films and plates, containing crystals of a silver compound dispersed in a medium such as gelatin.
Yup, in this case, emulsion is a mixed between 2 liquids which usually un-mix-able. Something from the water family and something from the oil family.


Result? A beautiful white creamy gel which feels cooling on the skin and gives instant hydrating effect.

He: The anti-sticky emulsion is a fresh and unique option from the usually so oily/greasy lotion or worse those lotion for whitening which sometime irritates the skin. The smell is somewhat like the Body Wash, so I’m a fan alright and doesn’t leave any residue on the skin, like instantly absorbed. For dry skin I need another lotion to top it off especially when used to the slippery feeling of normal lotion.

She: I love it. I’m so bored with conventional lotions nowadays and Jakarta is just getting hotter and hotter. Normal lotion will make my skin feels like difficult to breath (sometime) and when sweating, it will be like grease and yucky. The emulsion is perfect for the body as it was so light yet the nutrients needed by the skin is provided to stay looking healthy and plump without being too much. Like the proportion is done just right. I bet they did use a measuring glass in creating this perfect concoction.

But, frankly speaking, even thou I can use all of the body care from Manology 101 (and loving them), I do longed for products for my gender, and yup, belif does carry on for me (female) too. Hopefully soon I can try all of them and give you some review as well.


Come to the counter and try some yourself  \^__^/
Overall? Another brilliant and wonderful products from belif cosmetics which I think a must try.

Hi all!

Here’s a review on natur-e Daily Nourishing Lotion which I just received in my mail box ^__^

Details on the packaging:

Daily Nourishing Lotion for hand and body.
Vitamin E beads. Pomegranate seed oil. UVA + UVB Protection.

Natur E Daily Nourishing Lotion contain beads of Vit E that provide longer moisturizing effect with antioxidant and nutrition that beneficial for the skin.
Pomegranate seed oil as antioxidant that increases skin elasticity and softness.
Sun protection that protects the skin from the bad effect of UVA+UVB so the skin stay fair and shines all day long.
Natural formula produced by modern technology so it is safe to be used as a daily skincare

Use everyday to the hands and feet as skin protector before starting your day.

The 100 ml bottle looks pretty, simple and attractive. The color of the lotion is a bit light green with green dots on it, which is said to be Vit E beads. The beads on the skin feels a bit rough but able to be pressed and the beads with mushed into a green particles that easily blend to the lotion. 

The first thing I’ve noticed is the scent, it is too much, and I dislike it. It was like using a perfume but unfortunately the perfume smell like mosquito repellents/pesticides. There are a bit sensitivity to the skin right after usage, I don’t know why but I guess I wont be using it anymore, or maybe not on the hands, perhaps on the legs only.

The lotion is not sticky but not easily fully absorbed as well, so it’s somewhat in the middle. A bit rich but not buttery rich, it’s like a rich lotion. It does moisturized the skin but again the fragrance is overwhelming. If only it comes in a more softer scent which gives the lotion a chance to be proud of the vit e as the main focus above all ingredients.

Hi lovelies,

Details from Dove:

Memang benar yang dikatakan bahwa kecantikan berawal dari dalam. Karena itulah Dove Essential Nourishment Body Lotion diformulasikan khusus untuk meresap hingga jauh ke dalam*.
Tidak hanya melembabkan permukaan kulitmu, Dove juga memberikan perawatan mendalam** untuk kulit lembut dan halus lebih tahan lama.

I love all Dove Body Lotions including this one. Since Jakarta is so hot and humid I uses this one at night or during a flight or traveling only. Or perhaps when the skin feels really dry. The lotions feels rich, smells comforting (like a bit flowery, a bit milky and creamy) and so luxurious with DeepCare Complex where penetrates deeper into the skin and provide longer moisture or hydration to the skin.

Unlike the Fresh one, Essential Nourishment definitely feels richer on the skin with silky effect too. As see when the product applied and gradually melt on the skin, massaged and absorbed, it will leave a glistening effect on the skin for being so creamy. Those suffering with dry skin will enjoy this lotion the most since even thou it gives high level of moisture the lotion still feels comfortable without being too much.

Suitable to be used in long term (like above 18 hours) and in dry air conditioner room. Normal – oily skin may uses it night time only or when needed, while dry skin may uses it day and night.

Hi everyone!

I’m sooooo excited about this product as it was a savior for my hair and the price never hurt the wallet either. I consider this product a must have, especially when clearly seen “No Silicone” in the product, yeaayy!!

Details from Pantene:

Scalp oils, sweat, dirt and yesterday’s styling products weigh the hair down, making it dull and lifeless. Remove daily impurities to give fine hair a clean slate and revitalize it for that fresh, lively bounce.

The clear gel shampoo is lovely, oh so lovely, for my oily scalp and sometime dulled hair thanks to abundance hair products that stuck there. After all, we do need ‘detox’ once in a while, I’m not using it daily, just 1-2 times a week and loving it. Yes, I’ve said it numerous times, I’m loooooving it.

Start from the lovely signature scent of the original Pantene, easily lathered up shampoo, get rid of all those build ups, my scalp can sing breathe again and no more limp. No limp means volume and shines for the hair strands also get cleanse and they hide no more. I used mask afterwards and it looks like the hair can absorbs all the nutrients since there’s no more residue that blocked the hairs. It is so wonderful, unisex, universal and almost all hair types may uses it accordingly. From me? Two thumbs up, love the clean feeling, fresh scalp and help the hair to absorb nutrients put afterwards.
