Procare System at Rudy Hadisuwarno Salon


I just got back from a treatment in Rudy Hadisuwarno salon, yes, this blog post is fresh from the oven . . . Ooh, I just imagine how lovely it is if I have my own tablet or gadget that I can easily do a live blog.

So, just now, thanks to RHC, they given me voucher to be used at Rudy Hadisuwarno salon, one of them is in Tanjung Duren. They have this wonderful promo regarding their newest treatment in the salon. The treatment is called Procare System where for around Rp. 115.000 you can have a thorough treatment from the scalp to your hair with precise items for each step.

First, they check my scalp and hair condition, after that they gave me a shampoo with tea tree oil that suitable for my oily scalp. Then for the hair a ginseng mask will be applied.

This is me after the shampooing process, it was cool and refreshing, I think I want some of those to bring home ^___^

On my table they prepared a scented oil for a wholesome treatment, unfortunately I can't smell any, is the air conditioner blowing the opposite direction?

Then after the mask (with plenty of massage) and ozone treatment for about 15-20 minutes, my hair is rinsed. Back to my table the serum for the scalp is applied.

Using a special comb for the serum application. I think it works best for penetration of the DHT serum.

While waiting for my hair to be dried, I'm reading the pamphlet.

You can read the details regarding each treatment and products for different kind of condition.

Combination for each type of hair and scalp is easily done, so if you have an oily scalp and dry hair, they'll give you a shampoo for oily scalp and a mask for dry hair so all the needs are catered.  Which means this treatment can also accommodate several different condition in a go.

My result: A silky smooth hair with cleaner scalp ^___^, for Rp.115.000 (medium length), this treatment is worth every penny and a must try!

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Camellia

On the 26th I was attending a fresh lovely event in the Beauty Lounge at the Central Park held by Elizabeth Arden for their new addition of Green Tea Camellia.

Details by ElizabethArden.com:

GREEN TEA CAMELLIA  Green Tea Camellia Eau De Toilette Spray, 3.3 fl. oz.

Discover the world of Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Camellia. Renowned for its rare beauty and revered for its use in the traditional tea ceremony, the Camellia brings an intriguing floral scent and exotic intrigue to the crisp freshness of the original Green Tea fragrance. Inspired by Ikebana, the ancient art of Japanese flower arrangement, this luxurious fragrance reveals the delicate grace of a single perfect blossom as it unfolds petal by petal

The fragrance is still in the green tea family but with a burst of Camellia, an inspiration of the Japanese flower that smell so flowery and feminine.

I really like the smell since it brings out the women in me, but still a fresh scent to be used. Like a green note with white flowers, the scent that light but still give a vivid imagination of a lady that is both young, sophisticated and smart at the same time, curious? Try one, and if you get your hands on them you are lucky since the product is sold out at the moment. Wow!

On the display we also can see the variety of other Green Tea which is Lavender and many more. I really like everything with Lavender ^__^

But the range doesn't stop there, the original green tea also comes in body lotion which I know they are one of the favorite thing. The thing about Elizabeth Arden is their stuff easily become classic and loved by many.

In this opportunity I can also try the Green Tea Honey Drop Body Cream, these are the details from ELizabethArden.com:

GREEN TEA  Green Tea Honey Drops Body Cream, 8.4 oz.

Inspired by the ancient tradition of green tea itself, Elizabeth Arden Green Tea is euphoric blend of the most refreshing, rejuvenating scents that surround you in a burst of clean, crisp energy.

Our super moisturizing, all-over body cream, infused with a blend of real honey and fragrant green tea extract, to help calm and condition dry skin. Also available in our New Mega Size

Do you see the small tiny orangey dots? That's the honey, and the smell of the green tea in here is so lovely, I love their freshness to the max!

And Elizabeth Arden is always about giving their customer and guests a treat, too bad I just cut short my nails, they are giving a free manicure on the spot for certain amount of purchases. My left hand (without the ring) is after, notice the softer skin? The effect of rejuvenation is instant.

And they only use these 3 stuff which is the cleanser, Eight Hour Cream for cuticle, and Green Tea Honey Drop Body Cream as the moisturizer that works like wonder too.

My goodies bag, a Green Tea Body Scrub and a plant that perfect for indoor, neat! In conjunction of the 'green' theme, Elizabeth Arden have prepared something that is out of the ordinary, a plant that suitable for staying inside your room, lowering the pollutant, low maintenance (a bit of water and sun), and so cute for being adjustable in any container you've put into, love it!

I also tries on all the series in Green Tea and found my favorite, have you find yours?

None other than The Eight Hour Cream.

Details found in ElizabethArden.com:

Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is the winner of innumerable international beauty awards, and is at the top of every beauty editor's list. It's a Hollywood icon, a socialite secret. A cult favorite among celebrities.

A skincare classic, Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Stick soothes, restores, calms and helps relieve chapped, cracked, dry skin. Soothes and comforts roughness, redness, minor skin irritations, scrapes and abrasions. What makes it so effective is a combination of petrolatum, a skin-soothing beta-hydroxy in one of its first cosmetic uses, and vitamin E.

Women across the world apply this ultimate beauty tool to help protect skin from the elements (wind, sun, smog, pollution). Refresh it from jet lag. Shape brows. Revitalize shine. Smooth cuticles. Sooth knees. Ankles. Toes. And back again. It's no wonder it's called "the miracle cream."

 Yes, this cream is known as a skin protectant use in various way and for many reasons. I've been hearing it was use for women all over the world for their skin in many different places, not just for facial use. A new mom breastfeeding her baby have a sore nipples, travelers with sensitive skin due to different climate and irritants, kids with minor bug bites, and many other ways in cosmetics ways like as a makeup base, isn't it amazing?

All of you who've been with me over the years must have understand that I am a big follower of a thing that multifunction. I found them as a money saver and so practical. I adore stuff that can be use in many ways, since it can be a space saver too, an all in one recovery thing and there's a sense of adventure too in what is the next thing can be solve with that particular thing. And yes, Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream is on of these stuff. Another must have in every household, purse or a gal whose just understand that there are things in this life that was so unpredictable and you've gotta be ready for anything.

Last but not least, the scent might not be very amusing but somehow gives comfort when massages on the skin affected, sniffing it on a plane during headache is a delightful journey, and one more trial I've done with the cream is, it helps my dry ends (hair) become moist and tamed. Use about a corn size, massage well in your palm and only apply to the ends of your unruly hair and they will behave ^___^

Get one and find another unique function of this wonderful skin protectant by Elizabeth Arden called the Eight Hour Cream.

L'Oreal Paris UV Protector UV Perfect Matte

I got a pretty surprise at my door this morning, yes, THIS MORNING ^__^

A beach bag with a sun protection product from L'Oreal, neat! Even thou' it's rainy season now, there's never a moment where living in Jakarta doesn't need any sun protection.

If you love your skin and want to keep them young and healthy, sun protection is the key.

L'Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise is here with UV Perfect for a 12 hours in the sun without the shine.

Not just the matte version, the range also come with tinted for even complexion, transparent and anti dullness (sold separately).

As you can see at the above picture I have this product since last year since I was in Singapore ^__^, they have different box but both are the same, so just in case you're running international you'll see that these are the exact same item.

The product contain UV Filter and Anti-Oxidant, Mexoryl SX dan XL (XL BLOCK) patented, give optimum UVB and UVA protection so future damage that cause dark spots and early signs of aging can be reduced. Enriched with Detoxyl.

My verdict and review:

I've know the product for a year and I can honestly say the product earn a good score of 7 for being less oily,  budget friendly and the range comes in 4 different types that you can easily adjust. The product is sweat proof, but during sweating doesn't meant that it will not become glowing (from the sweat) but the product will not wear off. So the sun protection is still there even thou' you're sweating, which means it's a good news for a hot city like Jakarta (or any other town in Indonesia).

Pay attention they are not waterproof, so water sport related activity would not be sufficient using this product. It is most suitable to be used in the city, daily use ^__^ so they don't overload the product for the things you didn't need.

You'll love:
The friendly budget price, the smooth feeling it created, the mild floral scent and the SPF 30 UVB and UVA PA +++ which protect your skin from future damage incl. skin cancer.

Tips: Do not forget to double cleanse your skin every time you use a sun block.

Last but not least:
Enjoy your day rain or shine!

BTW, even thou' you're not out there in the sun, indirect sun exposure can also cause skin damage, so, still use a sun protection even thou' you're staying indoor okay ^___^

SIZUKU - Natural Pulp Essence Face Mask (YUZU)

I'm using another Japanese product right now called SIZUKU, it is a face mask with natural pulp essence which is YUZU. They have many other essence on the market.

Unfortunately lack of information in any other language than Japanese. But I do find some Japanese online shops and here's the details:

Love Labo’s Sizuku Face Mask Yuzu is a drugstore Japanese sheet mask featuring yuzu fruit to exfoliate away dead skin cells for brighten dull, lack-luster skin.
Relaxing Citron Scent
Ingredient List: Water,, butylene glycol,, glycerin,,citrus junos fruit extract,,  sodium hyaluronate,, soluble collagen,, chlorella vulgaris extract,, pueraria lobata root extract,, dipotassium glycyrrhizate,, PEG-20 sorbitan cocoate,, disodium EDTA,, hydroxyethylcellulose,, methylparaben,, fragrance.

The citrus scent is mild and I really like the thinness of the mask which using it almost like transparent. Perfect for cooling in a hot or humid day and help exfoliating much simpler and a relaxing experience too.

The leftover liquid in the packaging is a waste if you throw it away, use it on your body ^__^

Sold in Japan for 105 Yen.

Brightspot - 25 to 27 Nov'11 at Plaza Senayan

Last night I was invited to Brightspot Market thanks to Plaza Senayan, since it was just for invitation I thought it would be less crowded.

And I'm wrong!

It was crowded and feel so hot, reminder, come with your most comfortable clothes and know your sizes to avoid queuing at the changing room. But other than these uncomfortable situation the places is filled with cool stuff that you really want to buy or see.

Check out their website: http://brightspotmarket.com/ for all the participating tenants. Some clearly have loyal fans, while some are beginning to have tons of fans. I really like how creative Indonesian people really are. No more boring outfit or gadgets, small things are matter where the details become art itself.

From fashions to teens, adults, crafts to kids stuff, they all here. This is one of my favorite things. Love their children outfit.

These are kids, really! It's like miniature fashionista, Suri would love to be here.

Unique shoes with a whooping price too, but no worries, sale for 40% for your wallet's convenience ^__^ 

I know, these stuff are selected carefully and you wont find those typical common brand, maybe that's why for some the price are high. It's more like limited edition meets handpicked.

All of these are usable, they are not just decorations, the rocks? Candles!

The place is quite big, no worries, you wont get lost in it.

Some of the tenants and still a whole lot more.

Me in the event, syal, scarf, and jackets, should be banned here. It's too hot, yet it's still worth the heat, so many awesome things here.

So, come and have a blast of arty fun here!
