*WARNING, LONG POST. SUMMARY IS IN THE END*
Good Day, dear friends.
Today i'm going to introduce you to local Indonesian brand named Nature Leaves. I know nothing about this brand until their PR sent me email, introducing their brand and product. Now a little introduction on my blog, shall we?
What is Nature Leaves anyway?
It's a "Go Nature" brand who has visionary to make high quality home made product, with natural, organic ingredient and save for skin without chemical ingredient.
What Product do they have?
Unfortunately, they only have 2 powder mask as their main product. One is specialized for oily skin and the other one is all skin type. Being powder mask means they have to be mix with water first before use but also means that they need less chemical.
Both mask are Organic, risk free, using real essence, no fragrance, no paraben and processed through clean production (truthfully, sometimes i bit worry about homemade product but they're assure that they're keeping clean production). Because both are in powder form, it's impractical to use but it means it's using less chemical.
Oily Skin Type mask (basic ingredient : mud & tea tree) using pink label
Benefit : clean dead skin cell, help with oil control, brightening dull skin and hydrating
All skin Type mask (basic ingredient : green tea & honey) using blue label
Benefit : lifting skin, smoothening, anti oxidant, prevent spot and acne scar, hydrating
Okay, then where i could get it?
It's available in instagram @natureleaves_id and some reseller (could be check on their page) and sometimes in some offline event too. It’s retailed for IDR. 70,000.

Mine is the blue one, means it's for all skin type.
Their mask is packaged in tin can which impressed me. It's feels sturdy and pretty.
My second notice is on front label, the "Est since MMXIII". *EHM*. I tried to remember my greek study, but i could only read XIII means 13. I dont remember what M stand for. Okay since XIII is 13 i could guess the both M's means 2000. Est since 2013. Haha. I like their smart thought.
Each can contains of 50g of product and could be use one year after opened. This is what i like from powder mask, ha. However, it's just packaged like this. You need to make sure all powder are in bottom tin before open it. And it's kinda sad not having the whole ingredient list.
It does looks like green tea powder with leaves in my opinion haha.. The powder is not super finely milled (like i think it would be) and strongly scented. I know they're claimed to use no fragrance, but i wonder what smell so strong? Honey? I wish they give us ingredient list..
I was too being told that this mask help with allergic reaction. Well, another story for you (told ya, it’s a long post) :
I have allergic to seafood and egg. While seafood is easy to avoid, egg is not. My allergic is just developed few years ago. In the beginning, it's makes my hand swollen, itch, and red in several spot. Later, it's just swollen in hand but itchiness move to my face and neck. Totally disaster when you're outside, really.
But sorry, since my face shown no tangible allergic reaction, i can't show it to you. It's itch inside and redness shown just if i round them up (which i avoid).
My way to use this mask :
- Add an amount of powder you think enough for your face. Mine is about 2 coin size to cover entire face and jawline.
- Add water little by little until it's thin enough. Here i use drinking water simply because i don't trust tap water for mask. Otherwise, you can use warm water instead.
- Separate water and mask using your finger. Throw out excess water and put wet mask on your palm.
- Apply product that's left on your palm to your face. Yes, directly. Avoid eye area.
- Wait 15-20 minutes until it's fully dried
- Clean your face softly. DO NOT RUB, it's very harsh so wet your face and swipe GENTLY.
|masking (told ya it's hard to apply properly and it's messy!)|
|after mask, or actually, after bath|
After mask, my face is bright and smooth. If i do masking at night, my face is still brighter by the morning. Usually i do masking before bath, it's just easier to clean the messiness.
As bonus, i have no allergic reaction on my face after second application. Another story, I was had to had fried rice with egg the next day (after using nature leaves mask) I was outside and a little bit worry that my face would itch and all. But strangely, it doesn’t! My hand still getting allergic reaction, but thankfully face area are safe. Until today, the second week i used this mask, i totally have no allergic reaction at face and jawline!! YAY!
But I haven’t tried it on my hand but someday I will. I totally recommend this mask for anyone with allergy!

Supporting Indonesian Local Product
Too rough for my taste, I really wish it’s better milled.
A little bit in expensive side
Only available via online store (okay this one is not worthy saying, but some of you might found it as cons)
No ingredient list in product
I wish it has better packaging, maybe separated plastic cap inside?
Through claimed to use no fragrance, it’s scent lingering hours after use.
No ingredient list provided.
Even if Cons seems long way down towards Pro's, I will still giving it 4/5 star. Of course it's mainly because allergic calmer. I never know something like this before, thank you nature leaves!
