Beauty Treats Indonesia~ June Edition

I'm back again with my new beauty box from Beauty Treats Indonesia. It is quite late compared to last month and the first month. I heard it's because they have problem with their booklet *human error, I guess*. Since this month, BTI will have 2 different box with different price. The first one is platinum box (IDR 135.000) and the second one is gold box (IDR 95.000). My box is the gold one.

For their third box, BTI go with white color and gold ribbon (the platinum box got silver ribbon, I read this from my friend's blog). The box is still the same with the previous one, only the color is different. My first impression when I grab my box is.. "It is very light" lol.

Inside the box~ The booklet is the first thing that caught my eyes. It is very bright, right? Actually I'm quite disappointed because BTI doesn't give any greeting card this month. I know it's not something important, but with a personal greeting card it will be more exclusive for the receiver.

I read the booklet first, before I open my box. Like you can see, the platinum box got more high-end brand like Make Up Forever, Menard, Masami Shouko, Dr.Jart and Astalift. As for the gold box, the brands that associated for this month are Kay Collection, Lioele, Wardah, Paula's Choice and Masami Shouko.

I was really excited when I saw Paula's Choice on the list. PA is one of my HG skincare product and I was wondering what they will give to me inside the box.

Open the box~ My box is quite gloomy with only 5 products hahaha.. Okay, I must admit that I do feel dissapointed and I think the others who subscribe the gold box also have the same feeling with me. I've been subscribed to BTI since their first box and so far I always love their box. They always provide a full box with a lot of beauty products. But, for this is only 5 items and the size is quite small too (eventhough some of them are real size products). I know, for the first and second box they give a lot because they still new and want to promote their box, but I guess this is quite small. My first VTI box also contains only 7 items, but it doesn't look as sad as this..hahaha.. well, this is only my opinion~

Some improvement for this month.. They printed the vouchers inside the booklet. So, no more messy papers in my box. And like always the vouchers can only be used in Jakarta.

Here are what I got:

Lioele Red Ginseng Mask Sheet
*Real Size. I've already tried this mask before (bought it myself) and definitely not my favourite! I hate the smell :( It smells like herbal chinesse medicine. I remembered I can't even use it for 10 minutes because I can't stand the smell.

Paula's Choice Sample~ Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish
*I love the fact that they give me a primer to make my face matte (I have oily skin). But... Only 1 sample sachet and it is only 1 ml??? Omg... even when you just sign-up on PC's website, they will give you 3 samples (Don't know if the rules are still the same or not, but I do get 3 samples last year when I subscribed to their website), and BTI only give me 1? I hope they can be more generous with the sample, though I know PC is quite expensive brand*

Kay Collection Angled Brush
*Okay, no complain. Real size item, though it is quite small. I think it is a perfect item for travelling*

Masami Shouko Foundation Sponge
*Real Size.*

Wardah Triple Eyeshadow
*Real size. Quite happy with this because the color is brown. hahaha. I love warm color for my eyeshadow and I heard many good review about Wardah but never try it until now.*

Okay, that's all what I've got. 5 items from 5 different brands. For those who curious... Yes, it is worth the price. Based on their Booklet, the price of the products that I got is worth more than IDR 95.000 (4 Real size products and 1 sample sachet). But, me personally not really impressed with this month box. Well, let's see the next month box.. I hope I will get a better products next month~

Subscription for Beauty Treats Indonesia is IDR 95.000/month (Gold Box) and IDR 135.000/month (Platinum box). If you want to get your beauty samples too, go visit:

Estee Lauder New Concept Counter

I'm pretty sure all of you already familiar with this brand, Estee Lauder. When the first time I heard about Estee Lauder, what comes to my mind is "ahh..this is the luxury brand for high-class mommy / aunty" lol.. and I guess I'm not the only one that think like that, right? Apparently, the company also notice this condition. That's why recently Estee Lauder launch their new look. Estee Lauder want to change people's opinion about "old woman's product" into "every woman's products". This is suitable with their phylosophy that:

"Every woman can be beautiful"

Last saturday, I was invited by Estee Lauder to join the re-opening of their new counter at Tunjungan Plaza, Surabaya. I was in a rush to the event because I still work until 12 p.m and the invitation is at 1 p.m. So, I only have a short time to prepare myself and to go to the location. Okay enough of my un-related talk :p. Let's skip to the event~

Estee Lauder new counter has an open concept. They want customers to see all their products and not hesitate to ask about the product's information. So, they have some bar named after their product's range (like: skincare bar, perfume bar, makeup bar, etc). For skincare bar they also installed a mini TV that shows a video about their best seller product.

Aside for their new look, Estee Lauder also launch a new product called Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum. I'm sure many of you already know about Estee Lauder's famous product called Advanced Night Repair. Well, this new product is under the same varian with the famous advanced night repair. The eye serum claims to have a light texture, absorb quickly and can be use alone or you can use eye cream after that. 

Overall~ I think their new concept is very good. The counter is more cozy, open and looks more friendly to customers~

Now into the pictures~

Yennyca also there even though she didn't invited. She happened to visit TP with her BF and then she joined us too during into the event. and shelvi isn't there because she was late. We took another group pictures with Shelvi, but I don't have one, so I will update the post once I get the picture from the others :)

They offer free products with minimum purchase and also free cosmetic pouch too~ make sure you check out the deal and grab some of their products or if just want to see their lovely new counter, you can visit Estee Lauder's counter with the new concept at Sogo, Tunjungan Plaza 4, Surabaya.

Review: B'liv by Cellnique Skincare Products [Sponsored]

Last month, I was contacted by B'Liv to try their products and share my opinion to my readers. The words B'liv not only stands for "Believe" but also a union of the words "be" and "live" which aiming at forming a life style motto that encourages b'livers to live the moment.

If you never heard about this brand, you are not alone. Me too never heard about this brand before, but after doing some searching, I think this brand is really worth to try. I have an oily skin with blackheads and acnes. The company sent me some products that suit for my problems. Let's see my opinion about that~

I really love how they named their product. It is interesting and fresh for me, though it's a little to long to say.hehehe.. Off with those heads is a sebum gel that claims to remove blackheads and whiteheads, keeps acne under control, controls oil, unclogs pores, provides a gentle exfoliation, and has soothing and hydrating properties. 

I used this in the morning after I wash my face. I pumped a little amount and spreads it all around my face especially my T-zone. This gel doesn't have any strong scent and I can say I don't smell any scent. It comes with a small pump bottle with orange and white color. It really helps to soften my face, also it makes my blackheads reduce almost 50%! Sorry I forgot to took my "before" picture because I used this before I went to vacation. It was very hectic and I only focused on my vacation >_<

This is my recent picture. Well, I still have many blackheads on my nose and cheek, but it is lesser than before I use this product. So far, this gel does it jobs to unclogs pores and remove blakcheads and whiteheads for me. As for the oil control, I don't found something special.

What I like~
Help to removes blackheads and whiteheads

What I dislike~

The benefits~ Treats acne, unclogs pores, exfoliates skin, control oil, has a brightening effect on skin, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial

One of my favourite product from B'liv. It really works on me! yay~ It helps to reduce the redness of my acnes and help to calm my acne skin. See the pictures for the detail~ It doesn't works like magic and my make my skin become flawless in 2 weeks but, it does makes my skin condition improve and I really appreciate it!

The texture of the product is a light lotion with milky white color. It has a strong scent, can't really decribe the scent but It isn't really bother me because it disappear quickly. The packaging is tube and travel friendly. It really helps to heal my acnes though it needs some times.

What I like~
Help to calm my acnes and reduce redness. Also cure small pimples
Travel friendly packaging

What I dislike~
The scent is quite strong and kinda weirds for me

The mask shape is a little bit too large for my face but it contains a lot of essence. Even after 30 minutes, I can feel the mask still sticky and stick perfectly on my skin. This mask doesn't has strong scent which is quite strange for me. Mostly mask sheet that I know will have a strong fragrant scent when the first time I use that on my face, but this mask is different.

As for the whitening effect, I can't really say anything about it because I only use this mask for 2 times. But, It sure give a bright effect on my skin after I use it. So far this mask is an okay mask sheet for me. I especially love the amount of the essence.

What I like~
Scentless and contains a lot of essence
Give Instant Bright effect

What I dislike~
The shape is to big for my face :p

A very gentle face wash~ the texture is thick clear gel. It has a nice sweet scents and only need  a little to wash my face. It does remove dirt and so far doesn't make me break out. After you wash your face, usually you will have a "tight" feeling on your face, right? This cleansing gel doesn't give you that! I've been using this with the other B'liv products and so far I'm quite impressed with the result.

Oh by the way, if you a fan of something foamy for your facial wash, this is maybe not suitable for your because it doesn't provides a lot of bubbles due to the gel type. But for combination and oily skin, I think you should give this product a try.

What I like~
Lightweight and gentle texture (very suitable for acne prone skin)
Nice sweet / fruity scent
Remove dirt and excess oil
Only need a small amount to make a my face clean XD

What I dislike:
I only got a sample version (I want more!! lol). Ok, kidding la~
hmm so far I don't found any down point from this cleansing.

I rarely changed my skincare products because I'm afraid it will not suitable for my skin. But these products sure works fine (and I can say great for some of them) for me! At first I'm being a stranger and now I'm one of the B'livers! yay~ For more information about their products, Visit:

And if you want to buy, they provide free shipping, free sample and also cashback too~ This is a very great deal! Try it yourself and come join me to become a B'livers~
