Crazy for good skin tone, hydration & protection, but need them all in one bottle?

SAMPAR seems to deliver the needs of urban ladies. Yes, we’re very needy, especially when it comes to great skin care and beauty regimen. Juggling between work, family, friends and taking care of oneself are (hell!) not easy. Consider yourself lucky if you can manage your ‘me time’.

Thanks SAMPAR Indonesia for a chance to review their latest product, ‘CRAZY CREAM’. Such a brave name for a beauty product, but I can relate to the ‘crazy’ word really well, as sometimes I can go ‘crazy’ looking for the perfect beauty product which suit my skin needs, or went even ‘crazier’ when it didn’t work. LOL. 

Crazy Cream is perfect for those who are looking for tinted UV-defense cream with no worries of chalkiness or the smell of sunblock. New to SAMPAR COSMAKEUP range, CrazyCream is the first tinted moisturizer that promised to hydrates for 24 hours & stimulates the skin’s self-protection against photo-aging UV rays. It can also correct redness, thanks to the two shades available, NUDE & TAN. SAMPAR Indonesia sent me the Nude shade (the lighter one), perfect for my fair skin. When used for the first time, the first three pumps came out in white color. 

But after three pumps, it turned to Nude shade with brownish speckles. 

I have to remind you that Crazy Cream is not a CC Cream. It’s way easier to blend with fingers (no need for brush) as it’s really lightweight. And it offers sheer not full coverage (I recommend to apply this for base prior to foundation). Even though they named it a cream, might as well think of this product as the next generation of tinted moisturizer. Unlike CC Cream, which (sometimes) I found too dewy for my already oily skin, Crazy Cream gave me this healthy skin tone without the feeling of heaviness. It even gave me that tan looking skin! Check out the difference between my left hand (Crazy Cream applied) and my right hand (sans Crazy Cream). 

Like other SAMPAR products, it’s also paraben free! Crazy Cream (Priced at Rp 560.000 for 33ml) is now available throughout Beauty Box Indonesia’s stores, SAMPAR Boutique at Kota Kasablanka, Sephora Indonesia and Central Department Stores, Grand Indonesia.

With SAMPAR The Impossible C-Rum. 

My upcoming beauty resolution for 2015 is to take care of my skin more. Not that I neglected doing so this year, but smarter moves for better skin is very much needed. After all, healthy and flawless skin will always be a perfect base for any great makeup, right? 

But first, let me share some skin facts according to SAMPAR which might freak you and make you want to run to get this serum, stat!

  • Starting at 20, each woman will lose average 1% of collagen each year.
  • Skin aging starts silently around 15 years of age, become visible starting 30 and accelerates by 40-50.
  • Every day, the skin loses 1/3 hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid diminishes by 50% starting at the age of 50 years.

For the everlasting search of a perfect serum, search no more as SAMPAR The Impossible C-Rum reunites 5 serums (hydration, first wrinkles, deep wrinkles, anti-age spots & complexion radiance) in 1. A super concentrated serum with both preventative and corrective powers that promised to reprogram facial youth. With four patented active ingredients, Skin Youth Reverse Peptide, Liposome Encapsulated Vitamin C, Glucosamine-6 and Adenosine, it said it’ll intuitively adapts to cells regardless of our skin age. 

This smart serum comes with a dropper (great hygienic factor) and a light milky texture which absorb quickly. It didn’t leave any oily filmy residue and skin reactions for me. Usually, I use 2 drops for face and neck in the morning and night time after cleansing and before moisturizing. I’ve tried this for about 2 weeks, I feel my skin is brighter, firmer and more toned. 

From the product’s info, this serum is dedicated from 20 to 60+ years. SAMPAR The Impossible C-Rum is now available at Sampar Boutique, Kota Kasablanka, Jakarta and Beauty Box Stores near you. 


Literally, I did. Thank you to Sampar Indonesia, I was invited to try their facial.

Quite an experience, really, I was dead tired after I finished my shooting contract, and that tiredness shown all over my face. Just check out my ‘before’ facial face. Dull, blemishes everywhere and those dark circles were just really really bad, thanks to lack of rest (read: sleep). 

I didn’t know that Sampar Boutique Store in Mall Kota Kasablanka, Jakarta, Indonesia had a booth for facial. Now I do know that they have one inside the boutique. But caution: you have to book your facial days before as they only have one room to accommodate your facial needs. If you know your skin type, then you just mention it to the therapist. But if you’re clueless, the therapist will check your skin condition and decide what kind of facial will be perfect for you.

Since I have the oiliest skin one can only imagine, I was offered a PURE PERFECTION Facial. The name came from one of the SAMPAR’s range especially created for blemish-prone skin. As most facial, the therapist started with cleansing, toning, peeling, massage and masking. I love how they use hot towels between those steps and the face massage (it went through the back, arms and legs too!) was heavenly, I felt so relaxed afterwards. And I really did enjoy the essential oils scent which the therapist applied while massaging (FYI, she said that the oils were not for sale in the boutique).

The star product that I personally believe made my pores shrink instantly is PORELESS MAGIC PEEL. As Sampar didn’t believe in harsh scrubbing (and so do I), I love how the creamy texture glides smoothly and made my skin felt smooth and looked poreless (just check out my ‘after’ pic above). And two thumbs up for no pimples pinching at SAMPAR. Yeay for that!

I really recommend this facial by SAMPAR, if I can go once a week as the therapist recommended me, I so would. So far, they have four treatments available: Essentials for normal to dry skin, Pure Perfections for oily and blemish-prone skin, City of Light for brightening and Age-Antidote for anti aging. If you’re into facial that much, go for the packages as it’s really worth it.

I’m a (not so) proud owner of oily skin. People said it’ll delay my aging skin process. Mmm..maybe so. Stil…I want a perfect matte and soft skin like … all the time.

And in my line of work, I need my shots to be perfectly matte. Who wants to see my shiny skin, right? Thank goodness for SAMPAR Glamour Shot Matte Perfection. Four years ago, SAMPAR, the beauty brand from Paris invented Glamour Shot, the first transparent anti-wrinkles foundation that create a cosmetic revolution. And the latest addition to the Glamour Shot Series is Glamour Shot Matte Perfection, specially made for people like me who try our best to combat unwanted shine every hour or so.

This transparent mattifying concealer contains Ultra Matity Complex, stated to ensure 6 hours matte finish, balance sebum secretion to control shine, reduce size of pores & unifies the complexion. Apply on cleansed, moisturized skin if you do have all over oily skin, or just a tiny amount only on the shiny areas like T-Zone.

Sounds too good to be true until I’ve tried the multi-tasking product myself. What I personally like about this product is you can use this as a concealer before makeup, and also as a touch up during the day over makeup. Well, I decided to try it for touch up. See my pics above, and you’ll see that my pores looked like they shrank, my skin looked softer and more matte after I applied Glamour Shot Matte Perfection over my makeup. Surprisingly, the milky liquid texture didn’t disturb any makeup that I put on. 

I read somewhere that oil blotting paper actually make oily face worsen because of all that repeatedly pressing on the skin surface with dirt bonus. So I’m happy to say goodbye to those oily papers, because Glamour Shot Matte Perfection kept me shine free for 5-6 hours.
