Indonesian Product Review : Mustika Ratu Purple Mascara

Have you ever hear about Mustika Ratu?
Mustika Ratu is Indonesian brand that produce a wide-range of product, such as personal care and cosmetics, traditional herbal and medicine, fragrance, spa treatment, men's product and suplement. They came in some different brand like Mustika Ratu, Biocel, Mustika Puteri, Bask for Men, Ratu Mas, Moor and Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa.

I was using their Mustika Puteri product when i was in teenager age (10 years ago? lol). I use to like their fragrance and loose powder, and now i think they've make in wider. They even have supplement under Mustika Puteri brand, wow!

Forget about the past, i was not interested with their brand, i dont know. Maybe i just can't see them among korean-japanese-europe-american brand competition. But their mascara has just attracted me since some nice ladies in femaledaily highly raved it. It's quite cheap, though, only 37,000 IDR! Half price compared to my maybelline magnum!

here's the product :

simply named 'mascara' with Mustika Ratu's logo in right side.

made in indonesia

the superbrand logo and Mustika Ratu's contact. Superbrand is independent organization who gives achievement to brands based on experts and consumer's opinion.

Product description and ingredients. Well, it does contains paraben, so if you avoided parabens product, this is not for you.

it's 13cm length. Longer than maybelline's mascara.

a standard brush. I was afraid seeing it, since mascaras i've used has unique brush to help providing curved and thick eyelashes. And here's the swatch :

left : my bare eye
right : after using Mustika Ratu's Purple Mascara. Layered 3 times.

Can you see the purple effect? It's sheer but sometimes i can see it. This mascara doesnt help me to get curved eyelashes, but it does make it a little bit thicker.

Rating : 3/5
Not very good, but at least it doesnt hurt me. And it's so cheap!
good enough for daily use, when you want to get natural look :)

Merry Christmas Everyone, and a short review ..

Merry Christmas! i'm not celebrating christmas, but since my Grandpa passed away in last year's christmas, we started a family tradition to have a family-gathering every christmas. Still no christmas tree, but we have a lunch and having fun together. What are you doing in your christmas day?

It's been 21 days since i wrote review about Biore UV milk, and i think i've write some of my sunscreen and it's time to move to another section : haircare.

I've use this shampoo since October, nothing changed, but it doesn't mean i dont like it ..

Skinfood's Citron Scalp Care Shampoo came in 2 size ; miniature (50g) and full size (500g). I bought the full size since it's cheaper, and if i'm not good on it, i can give it to my sister .. /lol

I have a thick and heavy hair, with dandruff and lots of hair falls. What a combination, right? I think i need scalp care shampoo, since the problem(s) came from my scalp. This is what skinfood say in their website :
Citron Scalp Care Shampoo is free of 4 additives (colorings, parafiin, ethanol, benzophenone) and contains Citron extracts marked by its beautiful citrus aroma. The pure fresh lather cleamses your scalp.

[Citron Story] Citron, so popular as to be used for baths for its beauty ingredients, makes your scalp healthy and your hair beautiful.

* To Use
Wet your hair and scalp with enough warm water and squirt a moderate amount of shampoo in your palms to massage the lather around the entire scalp and hair using your fingertips before rinsing it off.

Yes, it's an additives free shampoo. But it's simply use like another shampoo, nothing special.

~ Front Face ~
i love the pump, really .. i love the face that now, full size bottle of any shampoo came in pump bottle, so cute and easy to use!

Back Side

the ingredients : no colorings, no parafiin, no ethanol, no benzophenone.

Citron Scalp Care Shampoo has a gel consistency, with a smell like orange, but it's artificial. I dont know, it's just smell unnatural for me. And gel consistency always makes me think that it doesnt produce enough foam, and it is. I need to use 1.5 times amount more than my usual shampoo, Loreal Total Repair Shampoo. Everytime i use this, i always feel fresh and clean, but nothing changed. The result is still the same with another shampoos i've tried.

I'm still using it thought, put a hope and try.

have you use it? what do you think about it? let's share :)

Review Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50 PA+++

Biore is famously known by Indonesian for their Cleansing Foam line, Liquid Soap line, Make Up Remover line and Pore Pack line. But in Japan, where the originaly came, they also have some other line : Facial Cleansing (wider than what they sell in Indonesia), Make Up Remover (wider than what they sell in Indonesia), Pore Pack line (wider than what they sell in Indonesia), Powder Sheet line and UV Protection Line. More info can be found at

I was looking for Japanese Sunscreen review, and i was thought for Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50 PA+++ (since it have SPF 50 and matte finish) and Sunkiller Baby Milk SPF 38 PA+++ (since it highly raved by beauty blogger). So when i found both of them was sell in forum, i chose to buy Biore UV Perfect Face milk.

description (taken from :
Superior lightweight UV block for face, Matt Effect. Provides long-lasting UV protection of SPF50+/ PA+++. It has an ultra light, non-sticky texture. Also an ideal makeup base, it contains Sebum-absorbing powder to give you that matt look and keep skin shine-free.

Size : 30ml

Let's see the real picture :

A white simple bottle made from plastic.

the Ingredient and another product explanation.
All written in Japanese so i taken the ingredient list from here :
Active Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate 5.0%, Cyclopentasiloxane 25.7%, Zinc Oxide 12.0%, Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methacrylate Crosspolymer 6.0%, Titanium Dioxide 0.47% Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Alcohol, Water, Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methaxcrylate Crosspolymer, Talc, Glycerin, Titanium Dioxide, Methicone, Mica, Polysilicone-9, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Peg-3 Dimethicone, Cetyl-Pg Hydroxyethyl Palmitamide, Aluminum Hydroxide, Silica, Iron Oxides (Ci 73360), Bht, Barium Sulfate, Aluminum Dimyristate
It does contain alcohol which avoided by some people, but for me, it's okay. As long as it doesnt contain of Avobenzone, it's still okay. I am still collecting data to write more and more about sunscreen's ingredient list, will post it later.

The opened cap. Like another milky sunscreen i know, it does have a silver ball inside to help you shake the product. If you forget to shake it, a strange transparant liquid will come out instead of milky liquid.

i put small amount on my hand.

rubbed once.

it turned into transparan. Visible but it's there.

What i love about it?
matte finish
easy to absorb
SPF 50 PA+++
travel sized

What i Hate about it :
thin plastic bottle, compared to my acnes uv tint
sometimes it could be deathly-matte

rating : 4.3/5
repurchase : would love to, if i can find another seller who sell it in cheaper price .. oh, and after i tried a sunkiller sunscreen, just for comparison :p
