PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR TRAVELER

Check out this pretty box from DIPTYQUE, filled with petite bath & body products from
their new line L’ART DU SOIN.

Inspired by passion for travel and discovery, Diptyque incorporate this line with iconic
Mediterranean destinations, such as Alexandria, Florence, Cordoba etc. They
carefully chosen natural ingredients to remain free of parabens, silicons,
sulfates and other synthetic additives.

When I unboxed (check out my instagram @shintarosvita), the luxurious scent
immediately won me over. Inside the pretty cotton pouch (which also smells like
the products), there are SMOOTHING BODY POLISH, REVITALIZING SHOWER GEL FOR THE BODY & HAIR, FRESH LOTION FOR THE BODY & LUXURIOUS HAND BALM. All in 50
ml packaging except the 30 ml hand balm, perfect for traveling. I mean, we
still have to indulge ourselves while traveling, right?

They don’t just smell heavenly, their formulas contain many ingredients which are
good for our skin.

Smoothing Body Polish contains Pomegranate Seed Oil to moisturize and protect the skin,
Jasmine Floral Water to gently purifies and activate cell renewal & Peach
Butter to comfort and nourishes.

Revitalizing Shower Gel for Body and Hair contains Peppermint Essence to tones the skin,
Almond Extract to revitalize hair and give them volume and shine & Wheat
Oligopeptide to soothes the scalp.

Fresh Lotion for the Body contains Orange Blossom Water to soften, moisturize and
tones the skin, Organic Sweet Almond Oil to regenerates and restructures the
skin & Macadamia Nut Oil to soften and soothed the skin.

Luxurious Hand Balm contains Apricot Kernet Oil for dehydrated skin, Argan Oil for
brittle nails & Shea Butter to moisturize and revitalize the skin.

I believe they work harmoniously, so layering is recommended. Bon Voyage!

STORE OPENING: DORÉ BY LeTAO PIK AVENUE

Congratulations for Doré by LeTao 4th store in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Located on PIK Avenue, the biggest mal in Pantai Indah Kapuk, North Jakarta, I believe it’s smaller than their Plaza Indonesia’s store. At the opening event when I attended, there were no seats like the one in Plaza Indonesia. So I guess, this store is just for take-away only.

FYI, Doré is a subsidiary brand of LeTAO, one of the best-selling cheesecake brands in the world. Founded in 1996 and based in Hokkaido, Japan, LeTAO is celebrated around the globe for their delicate and velvety cheesecakes. To produce such, they work meticulously with Japanese pastry chefs which use specific oven imported from Japan. 

In the PIK Avenue store, they showcase their finest ingredients.

Yes, lots of cheese! But for those who are more adventurous, there are more exciting flavors such as, strawberry, coffee and chocolate. 

Since it’s almost Christmas, there are pretty gift boxes and hampers to choose here.

And…if you’re not a cake person, no worries, there are lots of cookies to choose too. Like this Golden Honey Palmier.

These days, you don’t even have to come to the store to purchase them. Go to their website here, order via Whatsapp and they’ll deliver to your doorstep.

DEFINITELY A DECEMBER TO REMEMBER

Christmas is like a few days away. And this 24 HAPPY DAYS from THE BODY SHOP INDONESIA surely brings joy for me.

Wonderfully presented with a bouquet of fresh flowers on top, wait until you see what’s inside!

Like jigsaw boxes with total 25 lovely products from The Body Shop, it was truly a delightful experience of unboxing (see my unboxing timelapse video on my Instagram @shintarosvita). Actually there are 24 individual box seen once it was opened, but inside the number 24 box, there’s box number 25. Surprise, surprise!

And each of the box stated something, like this “Visez l’or” means “Stay Golden”, which thoughtfully got The Body Shop Colour Crush gold eyeshadow inside. 

Can we say ‘amen’ to this beautiful quote?

For the rest of the products, voila!

I know, right? Plenty of products (ranging from body care to makeup and tools) to last more than 24 happy days. Sensational gifts for a special Christmas this year, indeed.
