The Body Shop New Brand Ambassador


Hello lovelies,

around two weeks ago The Body Shop invited medias and bloggers to introduce their new brand ambassador.

-*-



The event was held in at Senayan area and it was lush-full. Greens and The Body Shop just blends in like it was meant to be.

The first thing that greeted me, is their body butters in many different variants, and then there's tables for cosmetics, skincare and everything in between we could play on.

-*-



The variants at The Body Shop is always irresistible, they keep adding new variants that looks pretty and delightful. Fresh is always the key. Plus, they keep changing new packaging too, I can't seem to take my eyes from their new bottles.

-*-



A responsible brand that always keep up with the trend, but today, it's all about the new brand ambassador that seems to be in sync with The Body Shop philosophy, you've probably seen her on the store lately.
The event itself is an intimate gathering where we met the new brand ambassador in person and listen as she shares her favorites from The Body Shop.

-*-



Cinta Laura looking lovely that afternoon with a floral dress. Yes, she is the new brand ambassador. I've seen her at the shop before for the British Rose collection and she does appear as lovely as a British Rose should be.
On the event, we also given products that are coming from the brand ambassador special collection from the collaboration with The Body Shop Indonesia.

Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter


Hello lovelies,

how are you? I hope everyone is in top top condition. It's been a while since my last post. Lately, I was busy playing mom and indulging myself watching iflix :D

While I was at home, usually the air conditioner is on most of the time because it's super hot here. And air conditioner, as we know, make the skin dry...most of the time. Using body lotion is not enough when they are usually gone within a couple of hours. Body butter could last longer and better too.

-*-



Here's when Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter comes in handy.

Award winning body butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. Smooth on a handful after your shower and you might swear you're wearing velvet. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance.

After showering or bathing, smooth a generous handful of The Righteous Butter onto damp skin and massage lightly until it all sinks in.

-*-

What's amazing about this body butter is the fact that it felt so luxuriously white, silky, super soft, utterly smooth and smells enjoyably delicious. Like I just swam into an tropical ocean filled with flowers and gorgeousness, and what is this Original Pink Fragrance?

a fresh fruity citrus with notes of bergamot, summer rose, peach, strawberry, gardenia blooms, jasmine, patchouli warm amber and lush musks.
so, in shorts, beautiful in every side of paradise.

-*-

Using it on a damp skin made the butter melts easier on to the skin. Imagine yourself after a warm bath, the skin feels vulnerably sexy, most and the minute the butter touches the skin, it's like a butter on a warm pudding, melts and glide effortlessly waiting to be massaged in. 

The more I tried to blend the butter on my skin the more the scent evoking and awakens, it is very pretty and delightful. The shea butter works its way to cover the skin and making them stay moist while aloe vera heals and hydrates.

-*-


My skin stays plump and supple for the whole day, or at least until the next shower while the scent last for hours, I figure that to make the scent last longer I can spritz some of the fragrance with the same notes all over every now and then.

Still, my skin doesn't really enjoy fragrance no matter how good it is, and it start to show some resistances, patches of irritated skin due to the fragrance which I'm sure wont happen to those who are blessed with normal skin condition.

-*-





In the end, I still love the product and stubbornly using it every now and then.

Sleek Baby Diaper Cream

Hello lovelies, hello babies, hello mommies,

this post is made for you. For your loves ones that still using diapers on daily basis, disposable diapers, no matter what the brand, type or material used. Indeed, diapers have been something that practical, we uses them everyday for convenience and comforts. Looking how in Indonesia not every malls or other public place is equipped with baby care center, we often do the minimal effort by pushing off the changing times or cleans less than what supposed to be done.

-*-



Sleek is a brand that has open a new door of more options for babies as they developed Sleek Baby. Known for producing products with NO SLS in many of their campaign has gotten people's attention as a safer brand.

 From nipple and bottle cleanser, laundry detergent, hair and body wash, hand wash, and now, diaper cream, the one that made specially for nappy time and for those area especially.

-*-

I guess almost everyone (with kids) know what diaper rash is, some may have experienced it when their babies are having one of those. The redness, itchy feeling with perhaps hot or burning sensation which made the kids cries. I thought I'd be a mom that her kids never suffer from one of those, I changed their diapers as often as possible and using the best diaper brand I could find. I also picked the material that's breathable, light and airy. Still, it happened.

-*-


We went for a family trip to Korea, with an 8 hour flight adding with immigration, baggage, journey time from home to the next one it added up to around 12 hours and yes, I didn't change her diaper as much as I supposed to since it was a red eye flight, everyone is asleep on the flight as well as my baby. I don't want to disturbed her during her sleep, hence her diapers is changed when she woke up.

At that time, I've noticed a redness on her private area, at first it wasn't that bad, we use just about any cream we could find as an emergency and that was made for sensitivities, allergic reaction and for just about any skin, not for the sensitive areas, so it took a while (days) and a lot of cries in between since it is not comfortable. I wish I knew about Sleek Baby Diaper Cream by then, would it make a difference? Sure will, it is a cream made for the area that has been suffering from ammonia and feces exposure for too long and it has antibacterial properties, do look at the image below as it explains the details of what's inside.

-*-






The thing about the diaper rash is, it made the skin suffer from dryness, red, angry, frustrated, and itchy at the same time, and here are everything that Sleek Baby Diaper Cream do, it protects, heals, cover, by moisturizing, caring and it even has antibacterial agents too and everything is natural and so gentle it could even be used by a newborn.

The cream is white, lotion in texture, light, and easy to be absorbed by the skin. It leaves a fine film that protected the skin from further damage from friction and helps reduce the burning sensation. When the child is peeing (or pooping) again, the skin has been 'covered' by the creamy lotion, so we do have time to clean it well and re apply. The key is to keep on using to prevent and help the area stays clean and dry as much as possible.

-*-




Being in Seoul during early Spring means the air is still chilly, we need to use jackets and coats plus layers too. This could be a problem for kids too as the body is keeping the heat inside. Problems such as prickly heat could appear, this is where the cream could be handy too, just apply them thinly it helps protecting the skin and made them comfortable.

We can keep having fun with the peace in mind.

-*-


The kid can still have her activity, learn by doing and comfortable in any area possible. No more being fussy and crying every time she feels going to the loo, no more tears during nappy time and all the feeling of uncomfortable are gone.

So there you go, never forget to change the diaper as often as possible, clean the area well, put some diaper cream whenever possible and let them be our little explorer once again. Happy and a go-getter.



-*-

Thank you so much Sleek Baby Diaper Cream.

Skin is Your Envelope with Cetaphil


Hello lovelies,

Last week, Cetaphil invited medias and beauty bloggers for a day to remember and celebrate your skin.

Cetaphil itself has been part of my family for years and we love their products as it can be used by anyone in the family. Those who owns very sensitive skin can still enjoy the products without any worries or concerns.

-*-


The event was held in Avec Moi, a restaurant in the middle of Jakarta. Hosted by celebrity and dermatologist  who speaks about the importance of our skin and how to care for them on daily basis.

Representative from Cetaphil also speaks how Cetaphil works and what does it do on our skin.

-*-


Dr. Edwin Tanihaha, SpKK, shares that skin is our largest organ that have to go through many things on daily basis. From pollution, UV rays, germs, frictions, radiation, Air conditioner, heat, weather to anything that touches the skin. They protects us and at the same time, they need protection too.

This is where, products like Cetaphil comes in. Brand Manager Cetaphil Indonesia, Chaerun Nisa Putri explains about two products from Cetaphil that cleanses with care and gentleness while the other gives moisture and light protection from the sun.

Andien Aisyah, singer, has been using Cetaphil for three years now. She testify how Cetaphil took care her dry skin from makeup and harsh soaps. She does agree with Cetaphil principal where the Skin is Our Envelop that supposed to be care for, protected and shielded everyday since we live in our envelope all the time.

-*-


Based on my personal experience and a lot of people that I know, we choose soaps or body cleanser based on brand, aroma and price. Most of us even leave it to aroma alone, the one that smells the best, regarding the ingredients, are the one we picked. Even when sometime it made our skin suffers.  How does we know that our skin is suffering? When there's a squeaky cleanliness that we feel on our skin, when there's white strikes when we scratch, when we feel the constant itchiness, redness and visible dryness, those signs are crucial and we need to pay attention since they are screaming for help.

Stop using product that contain high fragrance, preservatives, chemicals and other unnecessary ingredients. Cetaphil use only what's important and keep it low key on the stuff they put inside their bottles for the skin to enjoy. Cleaning them with care and gentleness and protecting the skin with hydration.

I know many personal experiences from my friends too that they can only use Cetaphil. For me personally, I used to be able to use any products, but now, as I grew older and my skin is not as though as it used to be, I can only use Cetaphil. Don't wait until your skin can't take it anymore, start using only what's best from now for a better start and better skin in the future.

-*-

Thank you so much Cetaphil, see you soon on my next post.

Koko Krunch Cereal Bars


Hello everybody,

breakfast is indeed has been found as the most important meal of the day. Still, we tend to occasionally forget and move on. Morning is always the busiest time during the day, we getting ready, especially with the kids and everything. Breakfast no longer become priority, getting ready is. And the traffic in Jakarta is no help too, forget about a bowl of our favorite cereal, we need food we can eat while we go and can't have anything that comes with a bowl and liquid, it's too hard to handle on the road.

-*-


Here's where Koko Krunch come in handy, they made one in a bar. It's still the same cereal, that choco one that we love and have, and with all the convenience for those in the rush, or perhaps in need of a sugar rush.

-*-


Following their commitment of "Make Breakfast Better" Koko Krunch Cereal Bar is made with the chocolatey goodness, milk and whole grain for a nutritious delicious cereal bar on the go. Just grab some before leaving the house, they are great as a snack in between meals too.

One bar is satisfying as it is sweet, I wish they didn't come that sweet but perhaps for those who happen to have sweet tooth might really enjoy these.

-*-


There are mini Koko Krunch cereal, so the shape is like the original Koko Krunch but they are smaller. Hugging each other to make a bar and the whites one on the bottom part is the milk, so in a way, it's still like eating the cereal with the milk like how we love when the time persist at home.

Overall, a handy cereal bar with the familiar chocolate flavour and crunchiness that we love and cherished from Koko Krunch with the simplicity and the easiness to carry it always in my purse. I wish they reduced the 7g sugar since it's too sweet and made the bar sinful, so I hope they do get the feedback and making them less sweet for a healthier choice.

Still, yums!

Covermark Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid in Three Shades


Hello lovelies,

using makeup nowadays could be a bit tricky and comes in so many texture. From powders, creams, lotions, hard powders, stick cream, gel, gel-cream, and everything that lies on the makeup world. Some might work when we combined them together, some doesn't. From crumbling, noodling, create mess to residue that is really not fun to be seen, there's always tricks we could do in shading, contouring, and highlighting.

-*-


By using three different shades of the same product, we can create that perfect contouring without worrying each texture wont be in sync. They' sing in perfect harmony by using it on areas that we want.

Highlights by using a shade that one or two level lighter than the skin tone, and contouring by using 2 shades darker than the skin.

Highlights are usually under the eyes, nose bridge, mid part of the chin and shading are on the sides of the nose for the illusion of a sharper nose, under the cheekbone for a slimmer face, on the bone structure of the jaw, outer sides of the forehead and so on.

And on the rest of the area, use the shade that matches the skin tone.

-*-




Use a sponge or your hand, but during application, somehow I prefer using a brush or spoon brush, it helps me getting those thin lines especially on the nose.

-*-




Using Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid I'm using MN00 for highlight and MN40 for shading. My skin tone is at MN10.

-*-




As seen below, the far left is MN00 which is the lightest, MN10 in between, and where the shade is not too far different than MN00.

-*-

And here's the result of using them altogether and after blending and color makeup. The foundation blends well one to another and doesn't have any problem with each other since they have same consistency. Hence the gradation made is mild and appear natural. For me this is the perfect merit between the shades which made my makeup appear three dimensional.

-*-




Thank you so much COVERMARK Indonesia.

COVERMARK Clear Base


Hello lovelies,

after all these months, there's one product that I take for granted and didn't share about it on my blog, COVERMARK Clear Base.

-*-



A tinted skin-brightening creamy makeup primer that delivers buildable light-to-medium coverage, Moisture Clear Base is best used under foundation to control sebum and attain a youthful-looking radiance.

Description

  1. Fine Fit Polymer captures foundation on skin, keeping colour true and dullness at bay for hours.
  2. A blend of soft, bright-colored powders helps evenly distribute light on the skin, improving skin’s natural glow and texture for a radiant complexion.
  3. Enriched with moisturizing ingredients, Moisture Clear Base nourishes skin to soothe and condition complexion for makeup to stay fresh throughout the day.
  4. Micro Lasting Powder, coated with highly emollient squalane, helps control sebum and prevents makeup from melting.
  5. Water-resistant cream with broad spectrum SPF35 PA++ to prevent dark spots and freckles caused by sun damages.
  6. Enriched with plant extracts (emollient ingredients: peach moon extract grape seed oil and angelica extract) to help hide and soften the look of skin imperfections and fine lines.

How to use

Squeeze a dollop of Moisture Clear Base onto the back of hand, dab onto cheeks, forehead, nose and chin before gently spreading evenly.

-*-





This is the product and the packaging, looks pretty right?! It's exclusive, gorgeous and classy.

The details on the website, packaging and everything in between is detailed and well informed. I feel that everything is prepared very well and like most Japanese products that comes with high quality, it's all there and ready to be used.

-*-



There's the ingredients too, from the first to the last, and see clearly, the bottom part of the details they also put the expired date clearly.

The product can be used using fingers, sponge, brush, or any makeup tools you have or feel comfortable with, but the key is on the skin. When using finger, it helps loosen the product with the warmth of our skin and create that kind of magic where the product is like spread elastically onto the skin, giving them a smooth surface for makeup to begin with.

-*-





There's this consistency that I like about the Clear Base, it is like rubbery, in a sense that it stretches. My skin become prepared with the water resisting ability that made makeup last. The sun protecting agent that covers my skin from the sun, the ingredients that pampering the skin, making them soft, healthier and in better condition than before.

Overall,

a base that covers the skin with love and care that last.
