One Piece Hair Studio Price List


Hi again ^_^ , sorry for the small photo, just click on it to see it better.
I went there again earlier today and after experiencing an excellent experience at One Piece Hair Studio I have the urge to share it with my family. Yes in about 6 months in the future me and my sis will make an appointment with Kevin to do a 3D hair cut, but my bro need an immediate help for his scalp problem. 
So today I signed him up for a scalp treatment, unfortunately Dennis and Kevin are busy (next time do make an appointment). So he was with someone else, due to personal issue (as in permission) there's will be no pic's of my bro here ^o^ sorry.
This is what he says to me regarding the experience:
1. He wish he is handled by the cute female staff instead of male
2. The massage by the staff on his body is way to strong (but I found the staff blameless since my bro didn't say a thing against it on the spot)
3. The shampoo is really cold
4. He really like the result, his scalp feels so clean (his problem is dandruff), light and fresh to the max
5. Now, like 8 hours after the treatment his scalp still feels so fresh and light, yes, he thank me a lot for giving him this treatment (something he rarely do) so he really must love the scalp treatment by One Piece Hair Studio.

Proven: One Piece Hair Studio is loved by male and female ^_^

Some more info that I get from the friendly front staff (next time I'll ask her name), I'm really keen of the treatment and she recommend Japanese or Crystal Treatment since Treatment (Rp. 200.000) only for virgin hair (never been dye or any chemical process).

Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++ UVA
Sorry, regarding this product I can't found the details on the website.

Details of the products are found in

Here's my review:
The Cleanser have a milky almost clear color with gel texture. So easy to lather up and I use it on my wet face, it was lovely, it cleanse really well, no squeaky feeling and no filmy effect too. The face left cleaned and fresh. It does clean all the daily sweat and debris but I still recommend for waterproof mascara to use eye makeup remover that ophthalmologist tested.

The Toner is also like the color of a clear cloudish liquid that thick. Yes a thick watery liquid. Dab it on the cotton and swipe the face with it. The toner does not sting at all, it is soft and light, comfy!

The Serum is warm indeed. A thick white liquid that feels so heavy but surprisingly so easy to absorb. It was so warm when it touches the skin. After massaging the serum (like a minute or two) they are penetrated and leaves a powdery soft feeling to the skin. Superb! My skin feels the immediate effect, I can't say it is tightening which it isn't but I feel plumped and rejuvenated.

Moisturizer, the white cream is so easy and feels light. Unlike other 'cream' where it is thick and difficult to absorb, this cream is lovely. I'm massaging the skin on upward direction and with the count of seconds you can feel the skin 'drinking' the light-gel-ish-cream. I'm seriously running out of compliment. Oh yes, one thing thou', I can't smell any scents of any of the products used today. But I hardly filed a complain since they all work so well.

Sunblock. I used to avoid sunblock for their oiliness, how they make me shining like a sun (in terms of not in a good way), and my skin feels hard to breathe and heavy too. Ultra Light Daily UV Defense is indeed light, so easy during application, no whitish residue, and voila! I look fresh instead of oily.

After using them all, my skin look brighter, moist, have that luminous glow that just easily noticeable, in a way I do look younger and fresher. I feel alive!! Alive and happy!!

I guess this is what a good skincare look like  ^o^

Sunsilk Hair Studio Grand Indonesia

Yesterday I went to Sunsilk Hair Studio, they certainly have amazing view here. Everything is decorated to fit Grand Indonesia.

They have two sides of Studio here, one is the photo booth while the other is the hair saloon

You can take a pic here for free when u're done

This is the other side. Saloon.


First you do a scalp and hair check up, neat!

From this I know my scalp is oily and the end of hairs is dry

Hair wash time using the type of shampoo my hair need, clean and fresh.

Here is the treatments and things you can have here including the price list. With my voucher from Sunsilk I can choose anything in here, I choose creambath since I think I need a treatment more than anything else.

Since Sunsilk didn't carry any creambath cream, they use normal creambath that you can find in any saloon, the massaging is too hard for me (I did told him to slow down) and really lack of cream. My hair felt really dry but he insisted it was enough. Clearly not my kind of creambath. Do you see the blue tube, it was remain 3/4 full and he refused to add just even a dab. Then a warm-cold towel is placed followed by a painful hand massage. I told myself it's just not my day -_-

Then after the rinse (which also not a relaxing and fun experience) tonic and serum is placed accordingly.

An amazing display of Sunsilk's products

And I'm happy to be done with it.

I did take a pic and bring the result home plus a bottle of Sunsilk for free.

Btw, I bring my sis along, according to her the experience there is not that bad, she quite enjoy it like 7 out of 10, so perhaps the experience is personal. If you want to try the experience yourself, hurry! Since it is only open until the end of July.

Bakerzin Plaza Senayan

A cool Mojito is refreshing. One of Bakerzin's must try drinks. Yes folks! I'm at Bakerzin on Saturday for a family meal. We've been to Bakerzin many times and they are famous with the dessert from cakes to macaroons who can resist them ( well I can -_- thanks to my lactose intolerant, yet, I still push myself to the limit)

So I keep myself to non dairy food items such as pizza (that are thinly crust, my kind) and Caesar Salad. In here they serve the salad with tartar sauce, a bit unoriginal yet still scrumptious! Love the fresh green veggies and the garlic bread. I guess I should be able to rely on Bakerzin in terms of fresh quality ingredients isn't it?

At first the big bowl seems really big, but I need some more! Eat veggies is always good for you, your health and beauty.

Then I took a peak on my sis pasta! Yummie, I only took a bite or two again thanks to my lactose intolerant tummy, the broccoli is juicy and I wish for more.

And a lovely Aglio Olio, dry, delicious and it's just right.

That's it guys, let me get back to my meals ^o^ the ambiance is wonderful here, so come and indulge!

The Body Shop Peppermint Purifying Foot Mask

It's pampering time! For my feet this time. Regular price at Rp.129.000 this deeply cleansing Kaolin clay and refreshing Community Trade peppermint oil soothes and purifies tired feet. Use it on tired feet, massage and leave 'em for 10 minutes before rinsing.


I cleaned my feet using regular soap, hmm I think a scrub before also good

And dry 'em nicely

Apply the cream generously, or accordingly  ^o^ the freshness of peppermint is just lovely

Spread it well

And massage it well. Ooh tired feet no more. Leave on for 10 minutes, mine dries up before 10 minutes.

And rinse it well. My feet feels so cold during rinsing, it is perfect during hot and humid days, the feet feels refreshed, clean, cool and ready for some more action.

Kiehl's Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Cream

Details from the official website:

Our unique preparation is an unscented, extremely gentle, yet efficient anti-perspirant and deodorant cream offering unique skin care benefits. Leaves skin feeling soft, soothed and conditioned with 24-hour protection against sweat and odor. Reduces underarm perspiration utilizing advanced micro-sized drying molecules for sheer absorption with no residue. Through our truly unique blend of ingredients, underarm hair will feel softer, resulting in a smoother shave experience.

My say: I bough the product like Rp.112.000 during 30% disc after the seminar, it's the only thing I need at the moment, well not really I just want to keep trying their top 10 items ^o^ I am indeed very picky in terms of deodorant because it will lead to either embarrassment or lovely fresher time. 

About 8 out of 10 deodorant that I bought is a complete failure, I've tried many brands, formula, texture, ingredients (from the most chemical to am all organic natural ingredients, from cheapo to the most expensive one I have, baking powders to perfume, I've tried them all.

Yes, I have a unique armpits and I'm proud of it. I hate body odors, it put me in the walk of shame, but most of the people surrounds me doesn't even know I have one. Some who happens to know are mistakes made by bad deodorants. Now I always made sure I've got them protected by effective ones. So when I'm about to make this review I made sure KCR's that I met really assured me the efficacy of the product since I will be brutally honest.

I kept asking again, again and again will it be effective and they say, yes (they = more than 1 person). I went home feeling so doubtful but I give it a go. The next day is Sunday, it was my busiest day, from church in the morning to my in law's place to Jakarta's Fair (PRJ) where it is super hot and humid, jam packed by gazillions of humans to night shopping in a huge supermarket (all in a day without any change to go home for a quick shower or even a change of clothing) and I proudly say, this product works!

Yes, I use Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant in the morning, just a small amount in the size of a pea/corn and spread it well in my underarms (after shower and on dry skin), wait a bit until it was dry (using a small fan) and that's it. My armpits stay odor-free for more than 12 hours. The armpits area also remain soft and smooth. This white cream is indeed effective.

"Importance of Skin Protection and the Effects on Your Skin" Seminar By Kiehl's


On 25th of June 2011 at 3 PM, Plaza Senayan's branch.


Kiehl's Seminar: Importance of Skin Protection and the Effects on Your Skin in conjunction of their newest addition (in Jakarta) Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Ultimate White.


The store conveniently turned into a workshop.


Waiting for the event to started I read the materials given, about pigmentation, hyper pigmentation, stains, aging, Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Ultimate White, and so on. Each guess also given a Starbuck chocolate muffin and a bottle of water to drink.


This is my material + a notebook, and . . .


2 pieces of sachets samples


A while later Mr. Ari start by welcoming the guess and a bit of what the event is all about.


Yes, the star of the show Ultimate White


And Dr. Abdul continues to explain that hyper pigmentation as the signs of aging. We know that melanin is good and as a form of skin defense, but overly produced melanin can cause hyper pigmentation. I can go on and on and on about the scientific discovery but I wont bored you, the bottom line is, Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions works by keep the melanin work in a level where's it will reduce hyper pigmentation such as: Melasma, Freckles, Hyper pigmentation post inflammation. 

After that Mr.Ari explained Dermatologist Solutions (details below ^0^)

Then it's Q&A, many questions asked and they answered the questions all so patiently. Finally after finished with the seminar and we can simply have an one on one consultations with the doctor and KCR's. 


The trio, cleanser, scrub and cream


Clinically proven on a deeper level reduce dark spots, discolorations and fine lines, so it's not just about whitening.


First, I try the cleanser on my hand, the texture is soft and a bit thick white mixed of gel and cream.


Then the scrub, which is almost like the cleanser but slightly thicker.

When I spread them I can see the clear difference where the cleanser remain soft and the scrub contains tiny white beads that felt so comfortable. I clean them off and my skin felt soft and not tight. It did felt clean but not squeaky clean. I like them, I can say, so far so good ^_^

And here's come the cream, it is white so soft and looks easy to absorb, it is said to be a cream but the texture is a bit like gel, again love this kind of texture since based on my experience these kind of texture is rich in benefit yet melt on my skin plus easy to absorb.



It is really easy to absorb, superb!

My left hand felt softer, smoother and moist, sorry for the bad lightning, it's actually looks brighter than the right hand (not wearing any)

The complete range of Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Ultimate White that enriched with natural ingredients of Vitamin C, Plum Fruit Extract, and Botanical Extract that works for:

1) Reducing the melanin production
2) Reducing the melanin transferring process
3) Reducing skin discolorations, smoothed and fixed the skin texture
4) The mixed of essential oils of lavender and citrus calm and relaxed a stressful skin (stress triggers melanin formation)

And here's some more info from the website:
These powerful, yet safe treatments address skin conditions
such as premature aging, irritation and sensitivity. Our collection
of advanced skincare helps to visibly improve the healthy appearance of the skin.

Need more information? Come to any Kiehl's branch and ask the friendly KCR's (Kiehl's Customer Representatives), based from my experience they are really friendly and don't be afraid, they don't do hard sell. Ask them to help you know your skin better, address it and what is the best treatment for you, ask for samples when you doubt them and try it yourself.

For me skincare is personal, me myself consider my skin, my body and what I need is unique, I know what I like, what I need and still have preferences, they do respect that, they wont push you with bunch of stuff you didn't feel comfortable with. It's like they believe their stuff is really good and a great products sell by itself.  Awesome!

Next time Kiehl's have an event or workshop, join! You'll get many information and the best thing is they are honest about their stuff and what's good for you, if they have it, they'll say it, if they don't, they'll admit it too.
Join me tomorrow as I'll show you what I bought after the seminar and after numerous time asking for confirmation whether it will work or not, I'll prove it myself  @_@'
