Atashi no Soap

My brother went to Tokyo last month.  He was with his boss, a photographer and artist.

When he arrived at home again, he brought us a box of soaps! Well, he said that it’s from his boss.  There was an embossed phrase on the top, written: TAMANOHADA SOAP. 

So it’s a soap!

I opened it and surprised.  It’s a ROUND-SHAPED soap! Each wrapped in a white thin paper. Wuuh.

That box contains three scents of the soap: lavender (which is GOOD!), orange (citrus-y fresh), and musk (smells like musk).

The foam of this soap is very mild, creamy—especially if you apply it to shower puff—try it! Rub the soap to your shower puff, and voilĂ , foam party! I’m so in love with its velvety foam.  Elegant!

Anyway, you can check about this round soap here! :)

A little snap from the website:

Round Soap Made with Meticulous Attention to Detail For your Hands, For your Heart: Round Soap. It rolls around in the palm of your hand, comforting your spirits. We wanted to offer a soap that makes you feel pleasant right from the time you start lathering, and this round shape is the result. If you look carefully, you can see that the sphere is slightly flattened on one side, giving it stability as it rests delicately on the counter. Go ahead, pick it up―cup it in both hands and see how it feels. Enjoy the Aroma. A Date with Fragrance. Tamanohada developed this original blend of luxurious aromatics in a base of natural essential oil. Just roll the sphere around in your hand, and the aroma fills the bathroom. The aroma stays with you, providing comfort and healing even as you go about town. And by using it in conjunction with our Shampoo & Conditioner, you can wash from head to toe with the same fragrance. Treat your Skin with Gentleness.

TAMANOHADA SOAP is made from natural palm oil and palm kernel oil. This soap has excellent moisturizing properties and strong cleansing power. It also lathers well, is highly stable (does not oxidize easily) and is gentle to the skin. Whether washing your whole body in the bath or just washing your face, this soap will bring you peace of mind.

What a cute experience! :)) olala!

Cocolala ♥

I always love coconut.  Its tropical scent, the taste in food, and also the benefits! :D

When The Body Shop held a Buy 3 Get 5 event, I took Coconut Milk Body Lotion as the free item (along with Nature’s Minerals Eye Colour).  It means 119.000 IDR minus 119.000 IDR is 0 IDR! LOL.  I love free items. :3

It contains coconut oil and babassu oil.  No parabens. No animal testing.

The texture is more liquidy then the puree one, for example, their Strawberry Puree Body Lotion which I love so much.  It also packed in spray bottle, so it’s easy to be applied.  Spray and go, absorbs perfectly and leaves my skin smells cocolala! :D

I'm a Sir

Put on a (faux) moustache on your face because today is the time of men’s product! Hahaha. Surprised? I let you, because ME TOO. 

Sometime ago, my big brother bought a men magazine in Singapore and he got Biotherm sample as a bonus.  But he never tried the product! So after a long long time, a cute sachet is just being a sculpture or something looks alike. :P Useless, hopeless…

Then me, as a girl who loves the world of skin care, decided to tear off the corner of the sachet and apply an amount of the product inside behind the ear to check for allergy or irritation. And there’s none.  So I wore it along on my whole face and go outside for a day…it’s amazing! It’s non-greasy, not shiny, very light, thin, and fresh! As it said on the sachet: absolutely not greasy, shiny, sticky

The texture itself is transparant gel with masculine aroma.  It absorbs quickly on the skin with a bit cooling effect. 

Btw, look at the RIZ Mousse Nettoyant Visage of L’occitane! It contains no parabens, completed with organic red rice from Camargue and Zinc PCA, but contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate, though the source is natural.  Well, honestly, I really want a bottle to try! :) Me and my oily/combination skin would love her, I guess. (yeah, I think that face cleanser is a ‘she’). 

Finish! :) Enjoy your weekend.

My Dear Facial Skin...

How do you take care of your skin, dear beautiful friends around the world? Everyone has different way of it, right? :) Some people needs a lot of treatment, like cleanser-toner-serum-moisturizer-night cream-and others.  Others live enough with cleanser-moisturizer.  There are various ways! :D

Today I want to describe my skincare habit…

I usually start with facial cleanser in the morning.  I recently use Nutriganics Foaming Face Wash from The Body Shop, which gives me a mild foam and sweet scent.  After that, I use my Seaweed Pore Perfector, from the same brand, on my nose and cheeks which show some too-big-pores.

I close the ritual with moisturizers.  If I will be home that day, I use my Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream, with very fresh scent and light texture.  If I’m going outside, I choose my Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion with SPF 15.  Sun protection is very important! :D

In the evening or in second shower-time (yes, living in a tropical world really needs two times shower par jour!), I use the same cleanser, but I have a different moisturizer.  Call it Aloe Soothing Night Cream.  For a night cream, it’s quite light.  But for me, I have to use it while my face still damp, so it’ll absorbs well.  :)

FYI, I have complex combination skin. It’s oily in some moments, but it’s freaking weak and dry when the weather is cool.

Next! Weekly regime.  I exfoliate my skin with Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Exfoliator once or two times a week.  It gives me a smoother skin surface, clean feeling, and happiness. :9

Not only exfoliant, I also have masks.  I purchased Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask and it works good on me.  Very easy to be applied too! :) I love this mask.  Sometimes I also use The Skin Food's Black Sugar Mask.  Only on my nose, to shoo off those blackheads.  Quite good so far.  Although I haven’t found a visible magical result.  But I can see that my blackheads getting fewer.  Unfortunately my black sugar mask is only a sample-size away and it contains parabens.  So I won’t purchase the full size.  No.

By the way, where is the toner?  I can’t use any toner! They break me out! :’(  Even the one that came from acne-free range until the milder one. Sadly.  But on the other side, it makes me able to save more in the piggy bank.  LOL. :) I don’t have to buy any toner anymore…

Sometimes I buy nose pack, for example, this one from The Skin Food, Korea. Contains 8 strips and works good.  But on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trial, I did it a little wrong.  I peel it too soon, lack of water on the nose, and stick it on the wrong positions.  Learning from my mistake, I did better until now the box is empty.  So I have to repurchase because I think it does something for my ‘hedgehog’ nose. :)

Tadaa…that’s mine.  What about yours? :) I do love to hear from my readers about their facial skin regime habit.

Have a nice day! :D Happy Friday! <3

Today’s topic: local brand! :)

My mother has been so faithful with this brand: Sariayu by Martha TilaarMartha Tilaar herself is the founder of this brand and not only producing products, she also does many social things and helps a lot of Indonesian women with her way, such as opening job opportunities, education thingy, et cetera. 

I’m proud Indonesia has her. :)

Here it is, a moisturizer with lime (jeruk) that is created for everyone with normal to oily skin.  Not only contains lime, it also has neroli oil as an aromatherapy, olive oil, areca (pinang) extract to maintain the skin elasticity and coconut oil.  Don’t forget one more plus point: SPF 15!

The performance of this moisturizer satisfied me.  It does makes my skin looks matte, the texture is gel-like and very light!

It’s also very affordable and easy to be found anywhere in supermarkets or minimarkets. 

question. Has anyone tried the red rice range of L’occitane? I am interested with them. Thank you anybody to answer this.  Bye bye!

*for this illustration, I worked together with random-branded pencil colours and Snowman Drawing Pen 0.1.  Lightness edited with Adobe Photoshop CS3. Don’t forget to keep original.  Don’t copy my result and use it illegally!
