Absolute New York First Flagship Studio in Surabaya & Products Review

A lot of good things happen to beauty enthusiasts in Surabaya.

Many beauty brands is opening their flagship studio in this city.

One of them is Absolute New York .

I was super lucky to be invited by Clozette to attend the opening store of Absolute New York.

Taken place at Ciputra World First Floor, on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, me and other Beauty Bloggers in Surabaya worn New Yorker themed outfit and bring the joy to the store.

There were a make up demo by Yenny Lemonade and make up tips from Surabaya Famous Influencer Wulan Wu.

The store is dynamic, edgy. It has wide range of makeup products that we need. The price is affordable. Don’t ask about the quality. It definitely great!!

I browse through the stores and have difficulties to pick my needs! I feel like buying them all!


Product Review

So after browsing and ask for the expert guidance there, i bought some recommended products from Absolute New York that is also an essential for my makeup.

Strobing & Shading Palette and HD Flawless Translucent Loose Powder.

The Beautycian recommend me the Tan to Deep Palette because it match my skin tone.

I love the powder palette than cream palette / stick products because powder works well on my oily skin. I could blend it easily using brush. Some color could also be used as a blusher! I get 6 colors for only IDR 275K. What a deal!

For highlight, there are:

Bubbly

Just Peachy

Brulee

For contour, there are:

Baked

Truffle

Tropez

And if you’re first timer and curious how to highlight and contour, there is a “cheat sheet” behind the box to guide you which area you need to highlight and contour 👍🏻😊

And for the HD Flawless Powder, i choose the translucent because it is more transparent and neutral. I bought this for IDR 180K.

These 2 items are essential in my makeup routines.

I used contour and shading to help me achieve V-shaped look. My cheeks are big and nose is flat. (Please help, God). This powder is used to minimize the excessive oil that my hormone produce. It also smoothen my makeup and blurred my big pores. It’s non drying, lightweight and mattify skin. I strongly suggest these two products for the great result and affordable price. I would definitely visit the store often!

Details:

Face: VOV Mineral Illuminated Cushion, ANY HD Loose Powder

Contour Highlight: ANY palette

Blush: VOV Balls on Cheek

Eyes: Kanebo Liquid Liner

Lip: Berry Me Avione Beauty


Thank you Clozette and Absolute New York for having me. It is an honour for me. Looking forward for more collaborations.

Even Steven Whipped Foundation – The Balm Review

Wohooo.. It’s October already. Time flies so fast.

Anyway… All beauty enthusiasts in Surabaya are happy to know that The Balm is finally has its studio at Ciputra World Surabaya.


The grand opening was held at Studio The Balm Ciputra World Surabaya on September 27, 2017.

img_4925

The hype was crazy. All dressed up in Nude Chic to celebrate the launching of Even Steven Whipped Foundation which is inspired by Disney Channel Show.

img_4904Guest star Imel Vilentcia (One of the taltented MUAs in Surabaya) gives make up demo titled “Complexion Rescue” using the latest foundation: Even Steven to create healthy complexion look.

img_4926Even Steven Whipped Foundation Review

img_5004As i told you earlier, this foundation is inspired by Disney Channel Programme: Even Steven.

The texture of this foundation is like a whipped cream or in other word, it is souffle!

If it is dropped, the foundation won’t go out and become a mess.

Even Steven Whipped Foundation comes in 8 natural shades.

What’s make Even Steven Whipped Foundation different?

Small cute packaging that can last for a long time. Just like the tagline “a little goes a long way with Even Steven“.

We only need to apply very little of this product on our face. After blending, the color become brighter. So it is suggested to buy one shade darker than your natural tone.

img_5002img_4998This foundation is pigmented, high coverage, easy to blend and has matte finished. But unlike other matte finished foundation that will make your skin feeling heavy or thick, this is light, anti crack, won’t look cakey.

I feel great after using this. Oh i don’t know whether it is only me, but i feel that fresh feeling and my complexion looks healthy in a second!

This product will stay for 6 hours and could be used without powder.

I learnt from Imel Vilentcia that we need to use brush to have the maximum result of this product. Brush will help the foundation to fill our pores and has the flawless look.

It is also suggested to use this product with Time Balm Primer and Photo Balm Powder to have the maximum result.

And that is why i also purchase the Time Balm Primer.

It has cute packaging, pink color. The primer textured is like balm, but lighter. Very easy to blend and moist.

So.. I have bought the Even Steven Whipped Foundation, Time Balm Primer… Now it’s time to work harder to buy the Photo Balm Powder, The Eye Palette, and the famous Mary Lou Manizer (I am a huge fans for this! I have repurchased this more than 3 times).

What do you think about the new foundation? Share your thought with me!

Have a good day.

VOV Mineral Illuminated Collections Review

Whether you’re living in Asia or other continents, i believe you have heard about this brand before, VOV.

This brand is a Korean brand that has been known widely.

In Indonesia, this brand is managed under PT. Teguh Pesona.

On this special occasion, i was joining Clozette ID Review Project to try and give review on VOV newest collection – VOV Mineral Illuminated series: The Cushion, The Blusher and The Eye Palette.

So, what’s make Mineral Illuminated Series stand a chance to win our heart?

VOV Mineral Illuminated Series is lightweight, it is suitable for all skin type including the sensitive one. It also contains natural ingredients that won’t harm our skin. Healthy and safe. It’s animal cruelty free, no testing on animals.

It’s pigmented just like American products brands, but the shade is suitable for Asian skin.

And as the name goes with “illuminated”, we all can expect the beautiful shimmer in most of the products of this line.

•••••

My Mineral Illuminated Collections Pick

Cushion

It comes in 2 color shade: Natural and Light.

I choose the natural shade because it blend well with my skin color.

Now how’s the product goes?

It’s super light. However, it has great coverage! It will stay until 8 hours!

Skin look radiance but it won’t make my oily skin become too dewy or shiny. Perfect!

Additional point from me is…… You just need to apply a little bit of it and do not need to apply powder after that. It has SPF 50 and also PA! And when it is time to remove the makeup, i could wipe this off easily!

Last but not least, please give an extra credit to the beautiful packaging. Lux!

Blusher

VOV Mineral Illuminated Blusher has 3 color choices: soft pink, rose, and coral.

I choose Coral Blusher. This is the best seller!

It gives a natural look for the cheek. The shimmer could be used to highlight cheek bone.

Oh i tried this to use as an eyeshadow. It works! ❤️

The brush is soft and smooth, it helps to apply the blusher easily.

Now that I only have the cushion and blusher with me, i do feel that i need to purchase the eye palette as well. Can’t stop thinking about the palette.


The Application

Details:

Face: VOV Mineral Illuminated Cushion, ANY HD Loose Powder

Contour Highlight: ANY palette

Blush: VOV Balls on Cheek

Eyes: Kanebo Liquid Liner

Lip: Berry Me Avione Beauty


My Personal Thought

I love VOV so much! All the products that i’ve tried is so pigmented.

High coverage but feels light on the skin.

Good color.

Easy to blend.

Long lasting.

My oily and sensitive skin doesn’t react to the products.

It is affordable!

I didn’t only bring home the Mineral Illuminated series. I also purchased SHOW CASE Balls on Cheeks blusher that can be used as shimmering and highlighter as well.

This is different with the Mineral Illuminated Blusher. This balls on cheek is similar to Guerlain Meteorites. It comes in 2 colors: Pink and Gold. Pink is more natural, Gold is more shining. So i choose Gold for a perfect additional for my highlighter tools.

The scent is sweet! Packaging is cute! Color is wonderful. Price??? Amazing!!! IDR 190K only.

If my friend didn’t stop me that time, i will end up buying a lot of products and have difficulties to pick up my favourite.


That’s all my review about VOV Mineral Illuminated products.

I do recommend the products if you’re looking for product ingredients that is friendly to sensitive and oily skin, pigmented, and has that shimmering effect, this is the one for you.

Have you ever tried VOV? Do share with me your review by dropping the link on comment box. Or if you have any questions or want to discuss about VOV, just drop a comment.

Have a good day ❤️

Naavagreen Beauty Blogger Gathering

Hello semua. Apa kabar hari ini?

Hari ini aku mau kasih liputan Beauty Gathering yang aku hadiri hari Sabtu tanggal 23 September 2017 kemarin.

Jadi ceritanya, aku bersama para anggota Surabaya Beauty Blogger diundang ke gatheringnya Naavagreen di Kabinet Ngagel, yang diorganize oleh Kotak Media.

Saat memasuki Kabinet Ngagel, aku udah suka banget sama ambiencenya, belum lagi dekorasi cantik yang udah disiapkan buat kita sama Lucretia Decoration.

Dan setelah semua peserta hadir, Host kita Mba Lilies Rolina langsung memulai dengan perkenalan blogger dan memanggil Mas Deka selaku Brand Manager dari Naavagreen.


About Naavagreen

Naavagreen sudah ada di Indonesia sejak 11 agustus 2012 dan merupakan buah dari kerja Dr. Freddy Setiawan yang sudah berpengalaman selama 20 tahun di bidang skincare Indonesia.

Salah satu produk dan jasa yang sudah sangat kita kenal adalah Natasha Skincare.

Jadi bisa dikatakan bahwa Naavagreen adalah adik dari Natasha Skincare.

Berbeda dengan Natasha Skincare, Naavagreen memiliki lab dan produksi sendiri dibawah naungan PT Dion Farma Abadi.

Semua produk Naavagreen mendapat ISO dan tersertifikasi HALAL.

Naavagreen juga mengutamakan 3 hal sebagai fokus mereka yaitu:

•Kualitas yang baik

•Terbuat dari bahan alami dan natural

•Harga terjangkau untuk semua kalangan


Gathering

Pada saat gathering, hadir pula Dr. Intan Rahayu yang menjelaskan produk-produk dari Naavagreen seperti:

• Program Facial

• Program Peeling

Facial dan Peeling dapat disesuaikan kondisi kulit apakah untuk kulit normal, berjerawat, apakah untuk brightening, mengatasi wrinkle, dan lain sebagainya.

• Red Blue Bio Light Therapy – Untuk menyegarkan dan mencerahkan, menjaga kelenturan dan kekenyalan, serta mempercepat proses penyembuhan jerawat.

Saat gathering ini juga kami mencoba tester Milk Cleanser, Body Scrub dan CC Cream dari Naavagreen.

Aromanya wangi dan segar. Ada aroma seperti jeruk.

CC Creamnya sangat ringan dan meresap dengan baik di kulit. CC Cream Naavagreen juga sudah dilengkapi SPF. Jadi dengan menggunakan CC Creamnya, kita tidak perlu lagi menggunakan tabir surya, foundation, maupun bedak.

Saat sesi tanya jawab, ada teman blogger yang menanyakan keamanan produk Naavagreen dan Dr.Intan serta Mas Deka menjamin bahwa semua produk Naavagreen tanpa steroid, natural, dan tidak membuat kulit rusak maupun ketagihan.

Sedikit tips dari Dr.Intan untuk kami semua adalah untuk menjaga kesehatan kulit kami dengan cara melakukan perawatan yang tepat.

Setelah produk perawatan lengkap, jangan lupa juga untuk istirahat cukup, makanan yang sehat, dan tidak stress.

Acara gathering ditutup dengan makan siang cantik dan foto bersama. Kami juga diberikan goodiebag berupa Cactus, CC Cream, Body Scrub dan Milk Cleanser 💚

Thank you Naavagreen untuk sosialisasi dan acara gatheringnya!

Avione Sandkiss Lipstick

Good day to you dolls! ❤️

Today i am so excited to share my review for Avione Lipstick with you.

You know that i am not really a beauty blogger, but my love for lipstick is a bit overdose..

I am a lipstick junkie 😍 before i was really addicted to the 50 shades of Red, now i am uncontrollably in love with anything nude and chocolate. So does the hunt begins…


This time, i tried another Indonesian local brand lipstick: Avione, manufactured in Sidoarjo, Indonesia. I fall in love with Avione Lipstick since the very first time they have promotional poster on Instagram.

I have big crushed for their Sandkiss Series: Caramel, Truffle and Berry Me.my surprised the lipstick is sold for only IDR 55,000/piece or if you buy one series, you’ll get 10K OFF which only cost me for IDR 155,000 and i get 3 lipsticks ❤️

What will you think if the price is cheap?

Do you afraid that the color won’t be good? Not long lasting? Or might contain dangerous chemicals?

I really don’t have any expectation on this. But i am surprised (once again) after trying this brand.

At one swatch, without any primer, you can notice the color right away! It is
very moist and last long ❤️

I don’t experience any sign of lip allergies, dryness, nor sticky feeling on my lip.

It has matte finished 😊

I am pleased and happy.


What about the ingredients? Is it safe?
Do you know that we can check whether a lipstick we love contain dangerous chemical or not in easy way?

This is how to test it.
First, swatch the lipstick color on your hand. Then, using any gold (pure gold) material, scratch over the lipstick shade on the hand.
If the color turns to black, means the lipstick contain harmful chemical.

It is such a relieve that the lipstick color on my hand didn’t turn black after i scratch with my gold ring.

Pretty amazing right!

Now let’s see how the color turns on my lip.

Caramel – The lightest color of the series. It gives me such a pinkish nude finish. The color is slightly lighter than Colourpop Echo Park. Avione caramel is my favourite color to look natural without being so plain.

img_4125

Berry Me – The light choco red color. I had hard time describing this color. Because this is not red, not chocolate either. So my best pick will be light choco red. Perfect for day time and more casual gathering.

img_4126

Truffle – The darkest nude for this series. It’s like Berry Me with more intense color. You can’t really say this is red or chocolate *again*. If you swatch more of this color to your lip, it will become sexy dark choco red. Perfect choice for night out and going to any events that you need to look amazingly stand out.

img_4127

You can notice that i have chapped lip during the color test. I didn’t put any lip concealer, lipgloss, or lip cream. But still, the lipstick work well on my dry lip.

So let me give quick rate before saying good bye to all of you.

Packaging 4/5

Price 5/5

Color 5/5

Texture 5/5

Will i recommend this? DEFINITELY.

Will i repurchase? SURE.

Yeayyy that’s all about my newest lipstick collection from Avione Beauty. If you wish to purchase this, you can simply go to its website at www.avionebeauty.com


Have a good day and let’s stay connected ❤

Facial Experience with Thalgo

Hello Beauty Enthusiasts!
Today i want to share with you my first ever facial experience with THALGO, which has been known widely for its Marine Beauty 😍
Before i start with the review, let's have a history class about THALGO


The History: THALGO

THALGO is the pioneer in marine cosmetology created in France, 1964 by pharmacist Andre Bouclet.
And today THALGO has partnering with luxury 5 stars hotels, resorts, and spas in more than 90 countries all over the world to expand its unique treatments and cosmetic products.

And here in Indonesia, PT Auraluxe Indonesia is the only distributor of THALGO.

All THALGO products contain NO:
Parabens, Mineral Oil, GMO, and Propylene Glycol.
Free from those materials. Its all marine and no testing on animals too ❤️ For my dearest Muslim friends, THALGO products also HALAL.

You can visit Thalgo Website to get to know more about it.


The Experience: Collagen Facial

Nowww let's get back to our main topic. The exclusive experience ❤️
I was happy and blessed to try THALGO beauty branch at SOGO Pakuwon Mall Surabaya.

On that special occasion, i got the chance to try THALGO Collagen Facial and become the model for Beauty Workshop that happen to be on the same date with my appoinment.

This is not the kind of facial that feels hurt and gonna make you shed a tear.

THALGO facial is a beauty and wellness facial, which you can looking forward for luxury spa treatment for face and body. Not just a massage, but also to make our skin radiance.
Not just a beauty treatment, but also a gentle pat here and there to circulate the blood and make sure the serum is fully absorbed.

I feel relax through all the process. And to my surprised, i didn't get that itchy, tingling, or burning sensation. It means that my sensitive skin could accept this ❤️

Facial Process:
The facial started with a mist that sprayed onto my face, then the Therapist give me a gentle massage.

After i feel relax, then se continue to clean my face from makeup.
Give another massage.

Third, she give me scrub serum. First to the wrinkle areas, fine lines, smile lines, and near eyes area.
Then she scrubbed it gently. 8 minutes focusing on the wrinkle areas, 2 minutes on other area.
So the scrubbing time is 10 minutes in total.

I know this is a bit longer than any usual scrub routine, thus, my skin become a bit red.

But don't you worry. I didn't get any rash after that. In fact, i have a brighter skin and feeling more smooth!

After done with the scrubbing, the Therapist prepare the Collagen mask, and leave it on my face and neck for 15 minutes. When the timer showed it's already 15 mins and the therapist removed the mask, everyone said "woahhh…" to express their excitement to see my face. They said my face look brighter immediately.

Turns out to have beauty skin we don't need to go under hurtful treatment 😁

After finish with the facial demo, Ms Vicka as the PR of THALGO Indonesia gave me a moisturizer for sensitive skin to try. She really concerned about my sensitive skin. I happily received the cream and give it a try.
How do i feel about the cream?


The Cream

I love the packaging! It feels like carrying beautiful blue stone on your hand 😊

Blue clear bottle with stone like shape 🙂

When i first torn the seal, i smell the moisturizer and fell in love the scent!
I can't really tell what smell is that, but i can describe it in words: luxury spa!

Yes.. That's the scent you can smell at Luxurious Spa places. The elegant and calming scent with a twist of root, flowers and marine.

Super love 💙

The moisturizer works well on my skin. Don't see any sign of redness, rash so far. I do experience purging on my chin.

FYI, My chin is the most sensitive part on my face. I have breakouts everytime i eat oily and fatty meals. It get worst whenever i get cough and sore throat.

I guess my chin need to do some adaption with the cream 😊

But don't worry, purging is normal and it will end eventually.

So that's all about my first ever facial and cream from THALGO.

You can ask me anything or share your experience too.

If you wish to try their facial, you can get it for FREE when you buy THALGO products with minimum purchase of IDR 800 K.
Or….
You can simply book your Beauty Spa experience at Papillon Blu – Raya Sukomanunggal (without product purchase). A good place to relax body and soul.

Independence Day Makeup Look

Helloooo..
It is August, 17 2017 here in Indonesia 🇲🇨❤️

And today we celebrate Independence Day wohooo…

I guess there're still many things to fight.. this country isn't free yet. Not from the invaders but from within: moral issues, political issues, and of course from the attitude.
It's everyone homework and responsibility to change the nation and be useful for the community.

However still, i love Indonesia and proud to be Indonesian!
••

Okay, enough with the speech…. Today i create easy makeup special to celebrate Independence Day ❤️

Since i am not expert, you can expect really simple and everyday makeup look coming from me.

Here's my makeup. I choose combination of red, purple, and black for the theme.

Let's go to the detail.

First of all, make sure face is clean and skincare is applied ❤️

Then i use Bare Minerals Vanilla for the foundation.

After that, i countour my nose with CityColor Cream Contour&Highlight.

Now let's focus on the eyes area.

Since my eyelid is small, i put a layer of scotch to make it bigger.

Then i applied Kanebo Black Liquid Eyeliner.

Next…

I started using red eyeshadow on the eye. Then add a little bit of black eyeshadow on the edge and blend it.
Then put purple on the centre, blend.
I use red and white eyeshadow for the crease.
But it isn't noticeable since i don't apply any primer.

I don't create a gradation here. I just simply mix and blend the 3 colors (black, purple, red) in order to make new shade of purplish red.

Using the same brush that already has mixed color on it, i draw a thin line under the eye.

For my lip, i use Wardah Chocoaholic Palette, shade Matte09

And for the final touch before putting on my Clinique Powder, i take my Etude House Drawing Eyebrow No 2 and give more definition to my korean shading eyebrow.

That's all about my makeup look for Independence Day Celebration ❤️

Turns out that purple red eyeshadow could look natural for everyday look too 🙂
I used to apply only brown, beige and black eyeshadow for my daily look.

Ohh… I use red and white eyeshadow to draw the flag on my cheek. (Should have borrowed face paint from my sis instead)

Ready to go to Parade (i wish…) lol

Oh i forget to mention, this look make me win Cathy Doll Indonesia X Womanblitz Giveaway yaiiyy ❤️

What do you think about this look? If you create any Independence Day look, share with me and give me the link. Would love to see and find inspiration too.

Have a good day everyone!

Review BCL Browlash Ex Water Strong Eyeliner

Hello again ❤️

I'm so addicted to BCL products lately.

You may have already known that most BCL products work in two ways. It's really the best choice for travelling, as well as bringing them inside our makeup pouch for daily as the pouch won't be bulky but still….. we got that ON POINT look ❤️

So here's my second review of BCL Products.

Today i want to share with you about BCL Browlash Ex Water Strong Eyeliner


As you can predict…  Water strong liner means that it's waterproof.. And let me highlight this, it will last for 24 hours!

Holygrail!❤️


My eyeliner is in Lady Brown & Pink Beige.

Brown eyeliner will make our eye makeup look super natural ❤️ I love to apply this when i need to welcome guests at home. My look will be on point without feeling too much for house warming. This eyeliner also perfect for sending my boy to school. I look natural without being boring and plain 😆

This could be applied for hangout too. No worries ❤️

Oh have i told you that this eyeliner is 0.1mm only. It helps me to draw perfect sharp, strong line without smudges. Say no no no to shaggy lines!

Since it's two way, it also comes with pink beige chip shadow 😍


The color is super soft……

If you want to make it more visible, just put more layers on it. Then the color will be noticeable easily!

Or…. you can always apply eyeprimer first.

Since the color is super soft, hoho, i can used it as highlighter too! Love love love.


I'm trying to  be as creative as possible.. and of course, i practice light packing.

I'll be travelling with my baby to US. I used to carry 2 big luggages for my own last time, before Darren born. But now, travelling with baby will be trickier. So i must be smart about it and try to pack my stuff light without risking my *cough* beauty appearance 😆😆 #thickskinalert

Okayy sorry for the intermezzo. Now let us discuss about the price.


I got this eyeliner from KayCollection and it costs IDR 255,900 . Honestly, i do think this is for middle up class.

I know there're a lot of good eyeliners on the market and more affordable.

But i'd like to think this way… If it's only for eyeliner, then most probably i will search for better option too.

But it's not only eyeliner. It's also eyeshadow (natural color. Let's be honest, we only use those neutral colors. So having this particular color is enough) and for me, it's not two way. It's eyeliner + eyeshadow + highlighter for me. 3 ways.

And for the sake for easy travelling and still put my appearance on the priority…. yeah, i don't mind to buy this eyeliner 😁🙏🏻😍

It's my honest review about this products.

I do really like everything about BCL.

If you wish to try.. i will suggest you, Water Strong Eyeliner, Gel & Powder Eyebrow and Cream Rouge.


I have reviewed the eyebrow product before. Click here if you haven't read one.
For cream rouge, i tried them during BCL x Kay Gathering event while ago in Surabaya. Click here for the mini review. It's awesome and recommended ❤️❤️❤️ 

Cream Rouge could be used for lip and cheek. Could actually be used for eyeshadow too! 😍

That's all from me. Good luck trying and wish me luck for BCL x Kay Road to Japan Competition 💗

Feel free to drop any comment if you want to discuss or find out more about this product ❤️

Cetaphil Facial Wash Review

Good day to you friends! ❤️

As a woman, i do really concern about products that i am going to use. Especially when it comes to skin care. Including facial wash.

___

Face wash is important as it is the first step of any beauty skincare regime to achieve that healthy skin.

Healthy from the dust, healthy from the UV, healthy from makeup residue and more.

I have been trying many brands from drugstore like Pond's, Garnier, to the premium brands like SK-II.

And so far, my skin doesn't show any signs of irritation or other thing that make me need to stop from using it.

The reason i change the brand is because i always want to find the best for my skin.

This habit change when i started to travel during Winter season, to the country with super cold weather.

Turns out that the brands i've tried before can't really protect me from this weather. My face become extremely dry.

** please note that my skin is sensitive and this might not happen to you. My mom and sis don't face this problem when travelling during Winter (degree below 0'C)

I went to marts and Sephora and bought different brands and they all gave me the same result.

Until i went to Wallmart and find Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser.
Yeah for face. Not that Gentle Skin Cleanser that could be used for face and body. It is hard to find in Asia. I can only find this at US (so far. Or maybe i haven't explore many marts to find them at other countries)

___


Why i love Cetaphil Facial Cleanser?

Cetaphil Daily Cleanser is super mild, non irritating even for sensitive skin.

This could be used for deep cleansing, not only removing the oil and dust, this facial wash could cleanse makeup. 

Suitable for all skin type.

It moistures my skin from dryness during winter, but also suitable for humid weather in Asia.

Super affordable

That's why i really love this product and always buy some to bring home.

The downside would be because it is not easy to find 😦

My other option would be the Skin Cleanser: Face & Body


Same as Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, this is also mild and non irritating. Since it is mild enough, it could be used for baby skin .

This could be used for bodywash and facewash.

Easy to buy wherever you go.

Downside: not for deep cleansing, can't really wipe off our makeup residue.

Both type of Cetaphil Cleanser i mention above can protect me from dryness. It is gentle to my highly sensitive skin. If i have acnes or breakouts, the troubled areas won't get dry or irritate as well ❤️

I have stopped trying new facial wash and rested my final choice on Cetaphil.

I even used Cetaphil products for my baby boy ❤️


Too bad, i could only find the shampoo, lotion, massage oil, and the body&shampoo in Indonesia.

I love the Ultramoisturizing Bath & Wash.

That's why everytime i travel overseas, i would buy a lot of this Cetaphil Baby Ultra Moisturizing Bath&Wash. and i could just buy the shampoo here.

My family and i really love how Cetaphil take a good care of our skin. What about you? Share with me if you have the same experience ❤️
