ADULT, DRINK THIS MILK

image

I eat. A lot. 

Check out my instagram (@shintarosvita), and you’ll see my good food posts. Yup not much veggies, fruits nor milk in sight. Yet, as an adult, I know that I need fibers and my bones need calcium to keep osteoporosis at bay. I’ve tried a couple of adult milk and nothing tickled my taste bud. Some of them even smell and taste like iron. 

This week, I received this new adult milk, APTA + GLUKOFIT. Produced by Combiphar, this is the first nutrition product from the health company. Except fibers and calcium, it has vitamins and minerals too, like B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 and B12. Promised to keep that fuller feeling longer (yeay!), this adult milk will also manage the level of blood sugar. Calcium will help to prevent osteoporosis and the vitamins produced energy for our body. All this great nutrition in a box? I am sold!

image

Inside the box (I received the French Vanilla), there are 3 sachets. One sachet (60gr) was made for one time consumption with 200ml water. 

image

Recommended to use hot water first to dissolve the milk powder perfectly, then add ice cubes if you wish.

image

I’m not a big fan of milk as some gave me nausea, but Apta + Glukofit tasted like no other milk I’ve tried. I love the taste of the French Vanilla flavour (by the way, they have another flavour, Belgian Chocolate). And…it’s not as sweet as others. It did make me fuller longer, too. If this is one of the way to start a healthy lifestyle, apparently it’s not as hard as I think. I’m gonna start with this and maybe more veggies and fruits in the future?

MUST TRY BODY TREATMENT

image

Yesterday, I had a chance to try one of the body treatment from Natura Derma Cosmeceutical Body Clinic. Located inside Galeries Lafayette 2nd floor, on Pacific Place, Jakarta, it has a beauty concept which combines cosmetic with pharmaceutical function. 

They also have range of Cosmeceutical products made from natural ingredients with high end technology, claimed to no side effects like inflammation, redness or dependency of usage. 

image

They have one big treatment room and two smaller ones inside Galeries Lafayette and I was lucky to experience their “BIO REVERSE AGING” Body Treatment in the bigger room.

image

Very nice room with soft lighting, perfect for relaxing. Before the treatment, the therapist will serve us beauty drink, a cup of PHYTO COLLAGEN PLUS. And off for the two hours body treatment. 

BIO REVERSE AGING Body Treatment is not just a body massage. First, the therapist will apply REJUVENA HERBAL CREAM and massage it with her two hands. The cream smells like herbal (for me, it smells like ginseng) but actually it has seven active natural ingredients mixed with Transdermal Phyto-Hormone and Nano Technology. This Phyto-Hormone cream is known to be very effective in hormone balancing, and detoxing. When applied and gently massage, you can see the dead skins literally flaking off. 

image

FYI, the cream itself cost Rp 2 million a jar. And yes, for the whole body, it took a jar. So one treatment cost Rp 2.5 million. See how special this body treatment is? And that black instrument is GUASHA. Made from tortoise shell, it was believed to bring positive and long live energy when used. It will be use in this treatment after the therapist lightly massaged the cream with her hands. By gentle strokes and pressing at once, it sort of remind me of acupressure treatment. My body felt a lot lighter and more relaxed after this treatment. The therapist recommended to have this treatment once a week to detox and reduce those inches! Yup it’s great for slimming too, folks.

WELCOME SPOTLESS FREE SKIN

image

Apparently we’re Asians love to have more fairer skin. That’s why a lot of international cosmetics company created ranges of brightening, lightening, whitening skincare products, you name it. And obviously, who’s not afraid of dull skin? I am. But I don’t want to have whiter skin, I just want skin that look bright like it glows from within and free of those ugly dark spots. 

ESTEE LAUDER launched a new line called CRESCENT WHITE to replace their previous brightening range, Cyber White. As a mother brand to Estee Lauder Company, Ibu Mamiek as General Manager for Estee Lauder Company Indonesia said, “Of course as a mother brand, Estee Lauder will have the latest technology first applied to their products before any brands in our group.” Based on the same technology as Advanced Night Repair (one of their best selling product), this range aims to repair & resist environmental aggressors which can cause uneven pigmentation and dullness. 

image

Recommended to use in one series for an optimal result, the entire line contains active ingredients for both daytime protection and night time correction. Yup this range will help to activate our skin’s ability to sort of self-brighten and repair. 

image

There are 6 products in the line: 

1. Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Cleanser

2. Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Moisture Treatment Lotion

3. Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Spot Correcting Essence

4. Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Moisture Creme

5. Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening UV Protector SPF50/PA++++

6. Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening BB Creme SPF50/PA++++ & Brightening Balm

Thanks to Estee Lauder Indonesia, they gave me one of Crescent White core product to try, Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Moisture Crème. 

image

Not only providing moisture balance, this face cream provides brightening benefits as well. It look thick inside the jar, but once applied, it feels light, I barely feel a thing. The scent reminds me of Iced Lychee Tea. Hmm… a refreshing scent for such a serious skincare product. Me likey! The great part about this cream, it’s suitable for both day and night use.

SUN, FEARLESS, FEMALE

I have to admit, I’m so lazy on putting on sunscreen. It’s bad, I know. But what can I say, I don’t dig the scent of most sunscreen lotion.

Mostly they smell like coconuts, which I feel way too beachy when I actually live nowhere near the beach. And they remind me of summer vacation, which I don’t think I’ll be getting one soon this year *sigh*. Worst part, they’re way too sticky and look oily when applied. 

Then one day, these cute package arrived at my doorstep, thanks to Dewi Sri Spa. Dewi Sri Spa is one of the luxury brand from Martha Tilaar Group which specialised in premium spa range product with natural ingredients from Indonesia. And SURYA MAJAPAHIT is their latest spa range.

image

There are three products in the range as you can see, Cooling Shower Gel, Sun Protection Lotion and Soothing Body Gel. With essential oils of Javanese Lotus, Licorice and White Rice, this is one unique series, I might say. Consists of two aftersun products and one sun protection lotion, I’m already relieved that they don’t have any coconuts in their ingredients lists. Finally, a sun protection lotion with SPF 40 that I can apply daily without the scent of going to the beach in a bikini. Hello, people! I’m going to the office inside an air-conditioned building with full clothes on every day, what do you expect? 

image

Comes in white and creamy texture, this lotion will absorb quickly on clean skin. Apply before you head out the door to protect your skin from the harsh rays of UVA and UVB. 

And I really love the idea of cooling shower gel. Imagine, after all that outdoor activities, going home and taking a shower with this gel will reduce that hot sensation on skin. No wonder it felt so cool, it contains menthol. Love the shower gel that feels cool even after I rinsed. 

Need more cooling sensation? Apply the soothing body gel. As the name stated, it is very soothing. The gel texture is not that thick, so it’s easily applied and absorbed without stickiness. This is great also when you’re baking yourself under the sun and found your skin burning in red. If they are, apply this gel in soft tap, don’t rub. The menthol will sooth your skin immediately. 

I’d love to use this range when (only God knows) I’m going on my beach vacation. But in the meanwhile, this range will gives me strong protection against sun damage in this crazy city I live in and keep my skin feels cool after all my daily activities.

YOU WILL WANT THIS SHU SHU

image

This collection just touched my soft spot for pop art illustrations. 

Paris based accessory and jewelry designer, Yaz Bukey collaborates with Shu Uemura for this super fun makeup collection: Yazbukey for Shu Uemura. From eyeshadows, lipsticks, primer, compact case, palette, false lashes, eyeliner and their best selling cleansing oil, Yaz Bukey not only illustrated the packaging but narrated the whole story of this Spring Collection. Imagine four women with different personalities (hello Carrie Bradshaw and friends!): sexy, smart, romantic and daring. And like a real life situation, each of them didn’t know that they’re each dating the same guy called ShuShu (wait, seriously?). Apparently, ShuShu means ‘darling’ in French, so yeah.. ShuShu – Shu Uemura. Get it?

Yaz Bukey did pick the colors too. And let me tell you, they’re fun and bold, exactly like the packaging. 

image

I was invited to the launch event this Saturday and being a lipstick mania, of course I wouldn’t missed to swatch all the lipsticks (there are four of Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte). As the name stated, they come in matte texture. See the swatches below. 

image

Check out this cool pink Mini Cooper adorned with Yaz’ illustrations and those rubber eyelashes!

Lips are everywhere, but lipsticks are not the only product in this collection as I stated before. There are “I love my Shu Shu Palette”.

image

Mmmm…not a big fan of the palette, as some of them comes in metallics (sorry, I am team matte forever).

image

And the primer to blur out those big pores. Can’t wait to try this. 

image

And last but definitely not least, are the cleansing oils, four of them. 

What’s missing from this collection in Indonesia? The Nail Colors. Too bad, right? But well, I was surprised to see the almost complete ‘limited edition’ collection here in my home town, as it was a rare situation. Usually we didn’t even get to see any. Seriously. 

Better get them soon, ladies as they’re limited edition only for this Spring.

THERE’S A STORY IN EVERY EYES

I can’t go out without my eyeliner. Enough said.

Having big and droopy eyes type, I am comfortable with feline flick aka cat eyes liner. Classic yet tricky technique, some might said. But after lots of years pulling them on, well I can say I’m pretty darn good at this thing. Beside my favorite gel liner, REVLON ColorStay Eye Liner is one of my favorite too. As it claimed, it did stay long and I love how intense their colors are. I always go for black for daily makeup look, but check out these new colors REVLON just launched in Indonesia.

image

New shades are: Sapphire, Jade, Amethyst, Gold and Silver.

They also have this new liquid liner, called ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner. 

image

As the name stated, the brush is really skinny. Very fine with 0.1 mm for that perfect skinny look. Same like the pencils, they are waterproof and long lasting. There are 7 shades available: Blackout, Black Brown, Electric Blue, Green Spark, Amethyst, Gold and Silver. Cost more expensive than the pencil type (Rp 99.000 each while the pencil cost Rp 75.000 each), I found this skinny liner great to apply after fake lashes application. Not to mention, they’re also great for that flick!

Check out the swatches I’ve made on the back on my hand (I’ll update once I put them on my eyes).

image

The thicker ones is the pencil (Sapphire), and the thinner one is the skinny liner (Electric Blue). The pencil ones was more greenish than the skinny liner. 

image

The Silver ones are quite intense with shimmer, thought the pencil ones was more intense than the liquid ones. Perfect for party look.

image

Hmmm….purple eyeliner. What do you think? Amethyst is such a pretty color.

image

I have no argument for their Black Eyeliner (pencil form), but judging from the swatch of the Gold Liquid Liner, it wasn’t as intense as the other colors, but as shimmery as the Silver ones. 

So, which one is your favorite? They are now available at REVLON’s counter in Indonesia. Go check them out.
