Today is august 16th and tomorrow is Indonesian Independence Day ヽ(∀゜ )人( ゜∀)ノ
So i decided to write a review about Indonesian Product. This is one of my newest items, i've stated it in my post about July & August Local Haul.
If you're going to any department store or market or souvenir store in Bali, you'll find some traditional based beauty product from several local brand. There's soap bar, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, body butter, body scrub, foot lotion, foot scrub, aromatherapy, breast cream, mask, and so on. Most of them has unique fruit or spice fragrance, if you like it, you might want to grab some.
I don't like these fragrance, they're turn weird after several minutes in my opinion. Especially for product which will stay in your skin for several hours like body lotion & body butter. But body scrub is different story. I will only use it for like 5 minutes and cover the smell with my regular soap. Tee-hee!
Bali Spa Collection isn't balinese local brand, it's produced by Indonesian Local Brand named PT Martina Berto or it's usually known as Martha Tilaar. It's also has different consistency with another balinese body scrub i used, but i like it!
I choose Lavender since it has a very attracting packaging and good smell (in my opinion).
It's quite cheap though, it's only about idr 9.000 for 200 ml (7.5oz) product.
It's also available in Olive, Bengkoang (Pachyrhizus erosus), Jasmine, and Coconut. For more info, you can read from their website
it comes in plastic jar, quite big compared to balinese body scrub (it's Lulur in bahasa), which mostly comes in only 100ml size.
here's their explanation about product. They're so nice for using 2 languages there so some foreign from outside country can read it ~(￣▽￣)ノ
and here's i write the ingredients for you (because i forgot to take picture of it, hahahaha) :
water, stearic acid, polyethylene, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cetyl alcohol, glycerin, sodium lactate, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, tocopheryl acetate, celullose gum, potassium hydroxide, glycol distearate, sodium laureth sulfate, cocamide MEA, laureth-10, carbomer, panthenol, pentaerythrityl tetra-di-t-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, chlorphenesin, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylsothiazolinone, fragrance, CI 17200, CI 42051.
my first impression :
sniff! it has floral scent but i'm not sure it's lavender scent
it's very ruinny! where's the scrub??
yeah it's purple! *LOL
if you zoom this picture in, you can see a small bubble, clear one, more like salt thing. Yeah it's the scrub.
it has a very ruinny consistency and seems white on my hand.
rub! rub! rub!
it doesn't even drying my skin, and there's no weird fragrance after use (ﾉ´∀｀*)ﾉ.
Overall, i like it for the price, and for nice result. But i love my Mustika Ratu's Coffee body scrub more. I will repurchase it once it's empty, but maybe not for long time.
Thanks for reading and Happy Independence Day!
