EVENT : Launching of Exilis Ultra Femme 360™ By BTL Aesthetics

6:27 PM

Halo halo everyone! Malam ini aku mau share ke kalian semua waktu aku dan temen-temen blogger aku hadir di eventnya BTL Aesthetics beberapa hari lalu. Disini, mereka baru aja ngeluncurin inovasi terbaru di Indonesia yaitu Exilis Ultra Femme 360™! Pasti pada penasaran kan, untuk apa sih alat itu. Yuk, intip keseruan dan pembahasan tentang alat ini lebih lanjut ^^




Pertama-tama, mungkin banyak yang belum tau, BTL Aesthetics itu perusahaan apa dan darimana. BTL Industries adalah produsen dan pengembang peralatan fisioterapi, kardiologi dan spirometri serta estetika medis swasta yang berdiri di UK sejak 1993. BTL Industries telah berada di lebih 54 negara, termasuk Indonesia dengan divisi bernama BTL Aesthetics.
Nah, mereka baru saja meluncurkan seri terbaru Exilis Ultra 360™ dengan prosedur Ultra Femme 360™ kemarin di event dengan tema "An Intimate Evening With Ultra Femme 360™"





Di Indonesia, sebenarnya sudah ada beberapa pilihan prosedur yang dapat mengembalikan vagina menjadi elastis, salah satunya ya BTL Aesthetics ini. Mereka mengklaim dapat mengembalikan vagina kembali elastis secara instan, melalu alat bernama Ultra Femme 360™.
Ultra Femme 360™ adalah prosedur peremajaan bagian intim wanita yang bisa dilakukan hanya dalam waktu 8 menit saja per perawatan. Mereka menggunakan gelombang radio tersingkat demi kebugaran dan kesehatan pada area paling intim wanita. Kita semua sebagai wanita pasti ingin kan selalu tampil sempurna, dari wajah, tubuh dan pastinya juga untuk area kewanitaan yang paling intim. Terutama untuk para mommy-mommy yang sudah pernah melahirkan, vulvo-vaginal menjadi lemah karena terjadi perubahan serat kolagen dan elastin. Nah, ini menyebabkan hilangnya kekuatan dan fleksibilitas di dalam dinding area vagina. 
Kalau sudah begini, pasti bingung kan harus bagaimana. Cara paling efektif dengan memanaskan serat kolagen dan elastin untuk merangsang pertumbuhan kolagen dan elastin. Ultra Femme 360™ dari BTL Aesthetics adalah solusinya!


Kemarin juga ada diputar video testimoni dari customers mereka. And you know what, ternyata untuk melakukan treatment ini tidak sakit sama sekali. Yang dirasakan hanya hangat. Dan di event tersebut juga dilakukan live demo loh! Dan itu treatmentnya bener-bener cepat dan tidak terlihat sakit. Amazing yah! Seperti yang aku sebutkan sebelumnya, treatment Ultra Femme 360™ yang berdurasi 8 menit ini dilakukan dengan pemanasan 40 derajat celcius pada bagian vagina. Untuk hasil optimal, treatment ini perlu dilakukan 2-4 kali, tergantung dari masing-masing permasalahan pasien. Gak cuman membuat vagina kembali elastis, treatment ini juga menyehatkan serta mengembalikan fungsi vagina agar bekerja lebih maksimal.
Oh ya, kalau wanita yang sedang menstruasi, luka atau keputihan yang berlebih, sebaiknya jangan dulu mencoba treatment ini agar tidak terjadi komplikasi. Menurut Sindy Maharani, Marketing Specialist dari PT. BTL Indonesia, "Hadirnya Ultra Femme 360™ merupakan jawaban dari tuntutan kebutuhan wanita akan kesehatan kewanitaan secara sempurna. Area intim tidak hanya terlihat lebih patut dari luar, tetapi juga terasa lebih nyaman di dalam."


Dari event ini, sudah dirangkum beberapa points dari Exilis Ultra Femme 360™ :
+ Aman +
Pemanasan menyeluruh 360 derajat lebih aman, cepat dan nyaman. Prosedur Ultra Femme 360™ telah memenuhi standar keamanan yang ketat. Sistem pengendalian aliran energi yang terpadu memberikan rasa hangat-panas selama treatment berlangsung hingga energi optimal ketika mencapai jaringan sasaran. Ini juga diupayakan untuk menurunkan resiko infeksi atau pembengkakan.
+ Nyaman +
Energy yang dikeluarkan secara serentak ke segala penjuru.
+ Cepat +
Perawatan tercepat yang menggunakan frekuensi gelombang radio hanya 8 menit.
+ Manfaat +
Hasilnya langsung terasa. 


Oh ya, untuk harga treatmentnya itu tergantung dari masing-masing klinik kecantikan ya. Tetapi treatment ini pastinya tidak murah, karena sasarannya memang untuk kalangan menengah ke atas.
Nah gimana girls, tertarik untuk mencoba? ^^

REVIEW : Senka Perfect Whip

9:15 PM

Happy Monday everyone! Did you get enough sleep? Because I'm really super duper sleepy right now. I guess I need a cup of coffee to make my eyes open. Gosh.
In order to make my eyes can open widely, I decided to write another review for today. Another hype facial foam, this is it, Senka Perfect Whip! For those who still don't know, Senka is a brand under the auspices of Shiseido Group. Shortly since its inception in 2003, Senka Perfect Whip immediately rewarded as the most best-seller facial foam in Japan. Wow, it really makes me curious. FYI, I bought mine in Bangkok, Thailand. But, you also can purchase it online in Indonesia at Sociolla! Let's just get started.




PACKAGING - Senka Perfect Whip



So, they have two different sizes which are 40 gr and 120 gr. Mine is 120 gr. Well, it's not really big, and I love it. I can bring it to everywhere I want. My pouch still can fit it in. The packaging is in a glossy plastic tube with blue color. You can see the brand and little touch of Japanese writing. The design is pretty simple but still look expensive. 



INGREDIENTS - Senka Perfect Whip


Aqua, Stearic Acid, PEG-8, Myristic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Lauric Acid, Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Polyquaternium-7, Fragrance, Disodium Edta, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Metabisulfite, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sericin, Potassium Sorbate, Sodiumacetylated Hyaluronate, Citric Acid, Hydrolyzed Silk.


FYI, it also contains 'White Cocoon Essence' which instantly creates an abundant foam that works as a cushion that gently removes makeup, dirt, and sebum on the face. Besides that, this also contains 'Double Hyaluronic Acid' to keep skin moisturized and smooth.



BENEFITS - Senka Perfect Whip




They claim, their soft foam is used to maintain the natural moisture of the face, clean the dirt up to the pores of the face and make skin smooth. 



TEXTURE - Senka Perfect Whip






The color is white with sticky texture. When you mix it with water, it will change into a creamy foam. 



HOW TO USE - Senka Perfect Whip



You can use this foam like using others. Squeeze an appropriate (about 2cm) amount onto wet hands or foaming net, lather well using cold or lukewarm water, and cleanse face. Rinse off completely.

But, the difference is, you can make super huge foam with Senka Perfect Whip! But, I recommend you to use a foaming net. I was kinda failed this time because I use my own hand to mix the foam and water. 







RESULT - Senka Perfect Whip

It feels so fresh and smooth after I washed it! I love the scent, kind of floral scent but not too strong. I still don't know yet whether it's really able to remove makeup because I always use makeup removal before wash my face using facial foam.

FINAL REVIEW - Senka Perfect Whip

+ Travel-friendly, available in two different sizes
+ Simple packaging, but I love it
+ Super soft and creamy foam
+ Good scent
+ Moisture my skin
+ Affordable price
- It's kinda hard to make the huge foam

WHERE TO BUY - Senka Perfect Whip

You can buy it at Sociolla!And you can get a special discount from me, by using my code upon check out (min. purchase of IDR 250k).


Overall, I love it!

8:24 PM

Holla everyone! Another gloomy morning and another review for today. Are you excited? Maybe some of you already saw my mini review about this product from my Instagram. But today, I will give you my full review after I tried this product for more than one week. Please welcome Rapunzel Hair Day and Night from Hey! Deux Yeoza. Another brand from Korea. FYI, I got this from Charis. I believe, many of you still don't know about this product. Actually, this is leave-in hair treatment and there are two variants which are day and night. It's a leave-in, daily nutritive treatment cream infused to nourish and repair dry or damaged hair. Yes, we all can do our own hair treatment from home! Let's go through one by one.


PACKAGING : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Rapunzel Hair Day & Night

When I opened the package, my very first impression is "wow, it's actually big size! And the packaging design is uber cute!"
Yes, that words came out instantly from my mouth. As you all can see, the size is 180 ml for each tube. The colors are so attractive, blue and pink. It comes with a big box for each. Hm, I guess not so travel-friendly, so if I travel to other cities, I will only bring one variant definitely.

INGREDIENTS : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Rapunzel Hair Day & Night

Inside each variant, it contains hair serum, hair lotion, hair oil, hair pack and hair essence. 

BENEFITS : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Rapunzel Hair Day & Night



They claim the immediate effects after single use. It's really effective for all of you who have dyed or perm-damaged hair, frizzy hair, split ends, UV damaged, breakage and dry hair. So basically, this is a 6-in-1 total hair care system.

VARIANT : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Moist Day



The first variant is the pink one. The cream color is also pink! Uber cute, right? At first, I thought it would be sticky and oily. Surprisingly, it's not sticky and not oily at all! The scent? I love the scent, it makes my hair smell so good. I use this variant in the morning before I blow dry my hair.

VARIANT : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Enriching Night



The other variant is the blue one. I thought the cream color would be blue, lol. And I opened the seal, and the color is white. The texture is same as the pink one, not sticky, not oily and lightweight. The scent is good too, but this one is not too strong like the pink one. Actually, I love this scent better. I use this variant in the night before sleep. 

HOW TO USE : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Rapunzel Hair Day & Night



Moist Day:
- Apply moist day to towel-dried or dry hair
- Do not rinse, just leave it
- Use blow dryer or straightener for your style

REVIEW : Hey! Deux Yeoza - Rapunzel Hair Day & Night

Believe it or not, I really use this product every day! And it really helps my hair. I have frizzy and dry hair because I always dyed my hair and using a straightener. My hair become so soft and smell good. Can't wait to see the best result on the next two months!

REVIEW : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel

9:46 PM

Hello everyone, how are you guys doing? 
Welcome back to my blog, and on this gloomy morning, I'm going to write a review about one of the hype products these days. Yuhuu, this is it, Aloe Shooting Gel! Well as we all know, there are so many brands from A to Z which sell this kind of products. And today, I will give you my review for Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel from The SAEM. Actually, I bought this in Bangkok, Thailand a few weeks ago. And I tried their Aloe Shooting Gel right after bought it (well until now still using it, almost every day). So are you ready to read my review?


BRAND : The SAEM 


The SAEM is one of the cosmetic and skincare brands from South Korea since 2010. The SAEM is not only loved by Koreans but also all over the world. They have spread their wings to Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Kazakhstan, Russia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, America, Canada, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Myanmar. Their brand and products are all inspired by nature. They believe healthy beauty starts with healthy nature. So that's why they use natural ingredients for all their products. (More info: http://www.thesaemcosmetic.com)

PACKAGING : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel 



Well, let's move to the packaging. As you can see, the packaging is a plastic jar with green color. The size of this jar is 300 ml (10.14 fl oz). It's kind of big jar and not really travel-friendly. You must move the gel to a smaller jar in case you are too lazy to bring them all. On the upside, you can see there are aloe vera pictures, product's name, the brand, and also that big 99%. FYI, 99% is the percentage of aloe vera extract used inside the gel. 
Do you know that actually they also have Aloe Shooting Gel in a tube? YES. But, the difference is, the percentage of aloe vera extract inside the tube is lower than this one. In the tube, the aloe vera extract is only 95%. 


When you open the jar, you will see an inner clear seal. I guess this is to prevent the gel from drying out and also for a more hygienic reason. 

INGREDIENTS : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Ocimum Basilicum Leaf Extract, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis Leaf Extract, Mentha Viridis Extract, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Saccharomyces/Carrageenan Extract/Sarcodiotheca Gaudichaudii Extract Ferment, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract, Juglans Regia Seed Extract, Avocado Fruit  Extract, Chamomilla Recutita Leaf Extract, Urtica Dioica Extract, Chrysanthemum Morifolium Flower Extract, Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract, Vitex Trifolia Fruit Extract, Thuja Occidentalis Leaf Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root Extract, Angelica Dahurica Root Extract, Asarum Sieboldi Root Extract, Morus Alba Root Extract, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Potassium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Perfume

Did you notice that there is no alcohol on the ingredients lists? Such a good thing, right? Almost all people are afraid if a beauty product contains alcohol because they assume that alcohol will make the skin dry. Actually, alcohol is used as a solvent, both for organic and inorganic substances, but especially the former. It dissolves balsams, essential oils, esters, fatty acids, hydrocarbons, resins, soaps, sugars, most vegetable alkaloids, and a large number of pharmaceutical drugs. So don't panic as long as the alcohol is still in a reasonable dosage. 

TEXTURE : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel


The texture is a gel with clear color. And there are some bubbles inside the gel. The gel is lightweight, non-sticky, and really easy to absorb to the skin. The scent is also good and fresh. I really love their scent.



BENEFITS : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel

At the back side, you can read the benefits of this product. They claim this is a multifunction soothing gel. You may use it for your face and body. It will make your skin healthy and moisturizes it by activating the skin's own vitality with aloe vera from the pristine Jeju Island. It also moisturizes and soothes dry, irritated skin.

HOW TO USE : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel

This aloe gel is really easy to use. Whenever the skin feels dry, dispense an adequate amount and gently apply to your face and body. On this post, I used it as face mask.








REVIEW : The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel

After I used this The SAEM 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Shooting Gel, here are the points:
+ Worth the price, I don't even know when my first jar will run out
+ Cool sensation on my face
+ It really absorbs fast
+ My skin felt tighter 
+ After it dried, I felt like I didn't use anything on my face
+ Moisturize my skin
- Not travel-friendy
- No spatula inside, you better buy one for hygienic reason


So that's all from me, see you on my next review~
