Hi, how are you? It's been a very busy week for me. A bit late to publish this post. However, I want to share review about this cute starter kit I got from Jolse. If you haven't heard, Jolse is a website for Korean cosmetics and skincare which offer free worldwide shipping and free gifts for every purchase. Awesome right!

What unique about this is, I haven't heard about this brand before, A·TRUE. It's new to me and I really want to try it especially when I love tea scent. It's calming and refreshing for me. I'm really happy when I can try this A·TRUE starter kit.

A·TRUE is the True brand represented from “a cup of the finest black tea.” 
The ‘Compagnie Coloniale’ brand is the First and Oldest premium black tea brand in France - it delivers absolute value.

A·TRUE presents “True Personal Care,” with its unique textures and outstanding benefits, 
all of which are formulated with various prescribed blends, proven to be very valuable in France for the past 200 years.

Here at A·TRUE, we wish to revive the Premium Beauty of the 17th Century European Royal Courts. 
We aim to have our customers experience lavish lifestyles and exquisite teas and to have them transported back in time via a single sip.

It is really classy to look at this. Reminds me a lot with tea can which is usually filled with dried tea leaves. The color, font, and the design is elegant, very European style. I will definitely use it for something after emptying it, maybe for a brush holder?

First time opening it, and you can see the net bag with A·TRUE logo on it. I'm surprised by the amazing fragrance that came out from inside the can. It smells really great, strong tea scent. You will know where it came from, soon.

This is where the tea scent came from. Two Earl Grey Tea bags. I haven't drunk it, but I bet it is a good tea. Soon I'll post on my instagram when I make the tea.

Take a peek! At the bottom, there are 3 mini size bottles and a pack of samples (12 pcs for exact). 

What's inside!


3 pcs Mini Size:
-Sweet Song Black Tea One-step Cleansing Water (20ml)
-White Snow Tea Brilliant Essence (20ml)
-Black Tea All Day Long Sun Cream (10g)

-White Snow Tea Brilliant Essence (20ml) - left
It prevents over-production of melanin while illuminating the skin to reveal a radiant complexion.

This essence is stunning because it's unique, something I've never tried before. The illuminating particles, if looked closely, it is like very soft and small glitters. I've seen it in powder, highlighter, blush, BB cream, most of them are make up, but never find it in skincare. Koreans like this kind of thing because illuminating and glowing skin is adored. 
I like to use it for special occasion as base make up. It soften my skin and makes it look glowing. Fast absorbed and smells good.

-Black Tea All Day Long Sun Cream (10g) - right
The sun protection brilliantly defends your skin against both UVA/UVB, as well as environmental elements.

I'm happy that it is SPF 50. Always need high protection because I live near the beach. It is white and the texture is creamy but not too thick. It spreads and absorbed nicely but still a bit heavy for me, because it is a bit sticky and needs time to be absorbed. It smells good though, I prefer to use it on a 'not so hot days' or apply powder after. I prefer the sun gel because it is lighter.

-Sweet Song Black Tea One-step Cleansing Water (20ml)
Effectively removes daily makeup, impurities, and even eye and lip makeup without any burning or irritating feelings.

It is a small transparent bottle, compact enough for travelling. I always love minis for my travelling. The texture is watery because it is cleansing water, which is lighter and easier to use compared to cleansing oil (no need to wash off). The scent is a little bit of floral scent, it's mild, I like it. It can remove make up nicely without being too harsh to the skin, it works great, with only one swipe I can almost remove all of the makeup. Recommended for sensitive skin because it's mild and doesn't irritate the skin at all.

Review (White Snow Tea Brilliant toner, essence, aurora cream):
I haven't tried all the samples, but I've tried the White snow series which is the most interesting for me. There is the bigger size of the essence and I've tried it so I'd like to try the set in samples. 

Toner: It is like clear water, smells really good, tea scent mixed with floral scent. It absorbed nicely and soften my skin.

Essence: (Reviewed it previously)

Cream: The cream is thick, way thicker than the essence. I just use it in small amount because it's enough for my whole face and I don't want to get too sticky and glittery. The cream has more illuminating particles than the essence, it is more visible (like purple pink illuminating particles). I like the essence more because it's lighter and enough for summer.


It's worth to try the whole set because we can try many variants before buying and I love love the packaging and the idea, it's just so sweet. Especially for the tea bag.
For the skincare, most of them are concentrating to moist and anti wrinkle, none for troubled skin. Seeing the kit, I said it suits for people with normal dry skin and early aging skin.
Not only skincare, there is also cleansing water which I like so much, this is very useful.

Hellow! Long time no see. I've been so busy. Finally can take some time to write a post.

What is Vegetal Placenta?

Vegetal Placenta or Plant placenta is the natural substance found under the pistil of flowers. Plant placenta has an extraordinary regenerating of nourishing fruits when they are formed. The anti-aging skincare product as well as anti-aging nutritional supplements are made with the vegetal placentas which are non-genetically modified plants including legumes, soybean, beech buds and etc. We are using soybean which is rich in amino acids, protein, peptides, mineral salts and soluble sugars and etc. These amino acids share the rejuvenating effects on skin that animal placenta offers. They stimulate the skin’s natural turn-over of cells and the synthesizing of collagen. A good collagen matrix in the skin is what holds skin together and prevents wrinkles and sags from occurring. These are the natural base for skin youth.

Importantly, dermatology testing has been done on plant placenta that shows a lot of promise. In a study out of Croix Rousse Hospital in Lyons, France, researchers found that plant placenta significantly improved dry, flaky, wrinkled skin from illness or aging; stimulated hair follicles to grow new hair; and exhibited a high tolerance to its use.Their research also showed that skin cells uptake of oxygen increased 70% with the plant placenta.

What are Benefits of Vegetal Plant Placenta Skincare Products?

Following is the list of benefits that are considered to be provided by the anti-aging skin care products made with vegetal plant placenta.
- Skin regeneration
- Reduction of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks that already exist on skin.
- Prevention of blemishes, scars, stretch marks, etc.
- Long-lasting miniaturization of skin.
- Lightening of facial pigmentation.
- Glowing skin
- Finer skin texture with more evenly toned colour.
- Improvement of skin elasticity and thickness.

Our product provides efficient effects on treating major type of different skin problems as follow:
- Whitening, Freckles, Hyperpigmentation
- Wrinkles, Rejuvenate, Restoration
- Acne, Pore minimizing, Scar healing
- Blackhead scar, Burn skin
- Stretch mark, Cellulite

AG Placenta W Cleansing Foam

It has tube packaging. Quiet big because it has 210ml, I can use it for months. 

The texture is quiet dense but not so thick. With small amount, I can use it for all my face because it can turn into rich lather. The scent is soft, it has floral scent I think and I like it because it's not too strong. Softer than the toner and serum.

The result, it makes my skin soft and supple, not oily but not drying either. I love the result!

AG Placenta Intensive Toner

It's a doff plastic bottle but thicker than usual bottle, and it has a plastic cap for the pump. Not many toner using pump and I like it because it is more hygienic.

The texture is just like water, transparent and not thick at all. The scent is similar with the foam but stronger. A bit too strong for my liking if I use it too much.

It makes my skin soft and moist but I have to wait a few seconds before applying other skincare. I have normal dry skin and I can say this product suits well more for dry skin.

AG Placenta Intensive Ampoule

Ampoule always comes in a glass bottle with pipette. It is quiet small, only 20ml. But one or two drops is enough for my whole face, psstt..  I have small face, so lucky me.

The texture is like water but thicker and still runny. It absorbs fast into the skin. It smells good, lighter than the toner and serum.

It feels moisturizing even though not as moist as the serum because it sinks faster but still makes my skin soft and supple. The ampoule is for morning use only. After ampoule, we can add emulsion or cream, but sometimes I don't use any other cream if the weather is too hot or just add some sunblock. 

AG Placenta Intensive Serum

The bottle is really similar with the toner, made from thick plastic and has pump, too. The unique thing is, this is a transparent bottle but it looks white when it's still full, once you use it, the bottom part inside will going up and than you can see the transparent bottle.

The texture is denser than others but still runny and spread easily, takes longer time to absorbed. The color is milky white, a little bit transparent. It smells the same like the toner. 

Even though it's not thick but it's very moisturizing. This is for night use and without cream, by using this only, it can keep my skin moisturized for a whole night. Really good if you have dry skin.


I love the set, it suit my normal dry skin well because it is really moisturizing. 
The scent is nice even though for toner and serum is a bit too strong if I'm using it too much. They have similar scent one another.
It makes my skin soft, moist and supple. I don't have trouble skin, so I'm not sure about the effect because I heard this brand is really good for troubled skin. But for me, I think my skin condition is nicer with it feels soft on skin.

Have you ever heard about Benton? It's Korean brand which famous for its skincare such as aloe and snail bee series. I was curious about this brand and so lucky, Jolse gave me a chance to try one of Benton products, the aloe toner.

Jolse is an online shopping website for Korean cosmetics and skincare, based in Korea. What I like is they provide free international shipping with no minimum order for standard shipping (without tracking no) and $2,5 only with tracking no. They also give many samples to try. The price is still affordable and there are many Korean brands that are hard to find else where.

Let's check the toner! I have tried maybe 4 or 5 kinds of toner. It makes my skincare routine absorbed better so it's kinda important but still sometimes I skip it if I'm in a hurry.



Moisturizing, Skin Soothing, Exfoliation, Excess Sebum Control, Pore Control, Skin Restoration.
* Recommended for skin with dead skin cell issue, sensitive skin, troubled skin, dry skin, oily skin, skin that requires minimum oil, skin that is sensitive to chemical substances.

#How to Use

Spray directly on your face, or spray on your palm or cosmetic cotton and spread the content.
* Please note its bottle design has been change from 'spray' type to 'normal bottle' type because of defect of nozzle


Dark green plastic bottle with black cap. Nothing's special about the packaging. It's a bit transparent so we can see the liquid inside, but don't worry the liquid isn't green ^_^.

The description and how to use in English is attached and printed in another paper. There are two ways to use it. First is pouring it into your palm and pat your face thoroughly. Second is using cotton pad and wipe your face. The second method is my favorite because it absorbs faster even though some says that it is more wasting than the first method.

The original one is all in Korean except for the ingredients. Wish they printed it in English too like other famous Korean brands. At the bottom there is production code, date and expired date. It is very new because it is produced in September 2014, and expired in September 2016. So the normal skincare shelf time is 2 years, but I definitely will empty this bottle before it.

The hole is covered with aluminium foil so it is save during the shipping. No leaking out or breaking. It's so important because it is sent from Korea, but don't worry, Jolse packed it nicely and gave a lot of samples. 

The hole is medium, not too small or big. Because it is not so watery so it is the right size. 


The texture is watery and transparent (just like water but denser), not as runny as Secret Key STE. Because it's denser, so I just need a little bit to cover my whole face. It is a bit sticky at first and needs time to absorb.

As you can see, it is a bit slimey (if too much) and needs time to be absorbed perfectly. I think because there is no alcohol in it so it takes longer time because toner which contains alcohol usually dries faster. Make sure you don't put too much before using moisturizer. A little goes a long way for this toner.


No stingy scent or artificial scent in this toner. It's just smells natural, like soft herbs but very soft like there is almost no scent. Very good for people who sensitive with perfumed skin care.


Good thing is there is no alcohol in it so there won't be any stingy sensation if you're sensitive to alcohol and it's not as drying as other alcohol toner. That's why it feels a bit sticky and need more time to be absorbed.

I live in Bali with tropical humid weather which is super hot (mostly around 30 degrees celcius), so I prefer to use this toner at night because it is moisturizing. If I use it for day, it is always lesser amount than the night, and I prefer method using cotton pad.

A week ago, because of the hot weather, my skin got itchy (especially on face and it felt terrible). I put this on my itchy skin with cotton pad for a few minutes and it helps a lot, the redness and the itchy sensation is almost gone. Because it is aloe so it has good soothing properties for the skin.

+ No alcohol, paraben, color, perfume
+ Good for sensitive skin
+ Soothing effect for sensitive and troubled skin
+ A little goes a long way
+ Moisturizing

- A little bit sticky at first
- Packaging is so so 

I say, it is a nice toner, suitable for sensitive and troubled skin. I like it because it has no alcohol and dangerous things in it so it is natural and safer. The price is still affordable, medium price, and will last for sometime. The soothing effect works good on itched skin and maybe pimples (from other reviews), I haven't got pimples until now so I haven't tested it yet. 

Where to buy?


It's been a long time I wanted red lip tint. Haven't had one before, and lucky me I got one from The Balm Indonesia. This is the best lip tint I've ever had and since I don't have many before. Check it out!

Stainiac “hint of tint” works with all skin tones. Dab just a touch on your Cheeks and Lips; layer to pop the color. Fear not those dreaded streaks most tints leave behind - Stainiac’s aloe-infused gel-based formula is designed to give you more time before the stain sets.

How to use
Dab this stain on your cheeks and blend with your fingers. Use the wand to apply to your lips. Layer to build color.


Sounds very promising, I like the idea that it gives more time before it sets rather than makes my lips look like bleeding which usually happens with quick drying tint. And because it gel based, it should be more moisturizing.

It comes in a carton box, usual packaging, but it's colorful like The Balm, as always. It's retro and pop art like western comic style. The stain itself is made from transparent plastic and silver cap. Not really a cute one but it's simple. 

The wand is slanted like other lip tints, perfect shape for lips. But I still like using finger for the finishing touch because it's more natural that way.

The formula is amazing. It doesn't bleed or leaked into lip lines because it is aloe based gel which is more moisturizing and gives more time before it dries. 

Stainiac has 3 colors: Homecoming Queen (Orange), Beauty Queen (Magenta/Pink) and Prom Queen (Red). This one is the best selling one. It looks red but the color is magenta pink. The color is buildable, we can layer it until the color we want.

It's quiet long lasting even after drinking and eating. Once it settled, it's a bit hard to be removed, so use make up remover to clean it properly. Good thing is, it doesn't leave my lips look like bleeding. To look best, I like to use lip balm on the top of it, juicy lips is mine!

On cheek, I like to apply 2 layers because 1 layer is still invisible for my cheek. It gives a flush and fresh look without too much color.

+ Moisturizing
+ Gives more time to apply because it dries longer than other tint
+ Has 3 color choices
+ Long lasting

- Packaging is very common but not a big deal
- A bit pricey

It's a bit pricier than Asian lip tint, but I bet it worth the price because it's different. The formula is moist yet long lasting and settled nicely. Really recommended for those who just learn to use lip tint because it gives more time before it sets. Other than that, it's useful because it can also be used for cheek too. I always love 2 in 1 product.

Beberapa waktu lalu, aku menang giveaway dari V10 Plus Indonesia yang hadiahnya V10 Plus Water Based Peeling Facial Mask set. So lucky me bisa nyobain produk best selling dari V10 Plus yang berasal dari Jepang ini, apalagi sudah terkenal di mancanegara. Ambassadornya sendiri adalah Miss Singapore 2013. ^_^ 

Aku memang suka pakai peeling selain scrub karena berasa lebih bersih dan kotoran-kotorannya langsung keluar, tapi paling ga suka sama chemical peeling di klinik kecantikan karena cenderung perih dan menipiskan kulit. Peeling dari V10 Plus adalah salah satu yang kusuka karena ga ribet dan ga perih.

Apa itu V10 Plus Water Base Peeling?

V10 Plus Water Base Peeling Mengandung Ekstrak Beras Dan Rumput Laut. Tanpa Memerlukan Scrub Yang Kasar, V10 Plus Water Base Peeling Mampu Mengangkat Sel Kulit Mati Serta Membersihkan Dan Mencerahkan Kulit Seketika.

V10 Plus Water Base Peeling Mengandung Ekstrak Beras Dan Rumput Laut. Tanpa Memerlukan Scrub Yang Kasar, V10 Plus Water Base Peeling Mampu Mengangkat Sel Kulit Mati Serta Membersihkan Dan Mencerahkan Kulit Seketika.

Kandungan Aktif:

Ekstrak Beras
Sumber Alami Dari Beberapa Jenis Antioksidan, Yaitu: Tokoferol, Tocotrienols, Gamma Oryzanol, Phytosterols, Polifenol Dan Squalene. Melawan Radikal Bebas Dan Membantu Dalam Memperlambat Efek Penuaan.

Ekstrak Rumput Laut
Dengan Penyerapan Mineral Dan Garam Laut, Rumput Laut Diyakini Memiliki Sifat Penyembuhan Alami, Mengandung Agen Antipenuaan, Bahkan Memiliki Khasiat Mengurangi Selulit. Lendir Rumput Laut Juga Menyediakan Kelembaban Alami Pada Kulit.


Pompa Jumlah Yang Tepat Dan Biarkan Di Kulit Yang Telah Dibersihkan & Kering Selama 5 Detik. Kemudian Pijat Lembut Dengan Ujung Jari Anda Dalam Gerakan Melingkar. Setalah Itu Sel Kulit Mati Akan Keluar Berbentuk Serpihan Kecil. Bilas Serpih Bersih Dengan Air.

Paket yang datang berupa katalog sebesar majalah, mirip map folio besar. Unik juga tempatnya karena berupa sachet jadi katalog ini sangat membantu, detil banget.

Di katalog bagian bawah ada daftar penghargaan yang sudah diraih oleh V10 Plus. Banyak banget yahh... Kebanyakan dari Singapura karena memang brand ini sudah booming duluan di Singapura.

Penjelasannya lengkap di katalog tersebut. Di dalamnya ada 10 buah V10 Plus Water Based Peeling Facial Mask dalam bentuk sachet, jadi bisa untuk 10x pakai. Kemasan sachet ini cukup praktis karena mudah dibawa-bawa dan bisa dipakai kapan saja, misal sebelum acara penting bisa pakai ini dulu sebelum make up supaya make up jadi lebih awet karena kondisi kulit sudah maksimal (bersih, cerah dan lembab).

Cara pakainya pun mudah, cukup diaplikasikan ke seluruh wajah seperti toner tapi tanpa kapas, setelah didiamkan, cairan ini akan menyerap ke wajah dengan cukup cepat. Setelah itu baru pijat lembut kulit wajah dengan gerakan melingkar sehingga kotoran akan keluar, dapat terlihat dari ekses seperti kulit mati namun berasal dari peeling tersebut bercampur dengan kotoran dan kulit mati pada wajah.

Teksturnya cair tapi sedikit kental dan bening, seperti namanya karena 'water based' jadi bahan dasarnya air. Wanginya agak kuat saat pertama dibuka, tapi setelah pemakaian tidak terlalu tercium lagi.

Percobaan di tangan dengan bekas liptint yang sudah dihapus pakai make up remover. Tekstur pertama yang keluar agak kental, namun setelah diratakan dengan segera akan menjadi cair dalam 5 detik dan semakin kita menggosok maka kotoran akan keluar, terlihat dari kotoran yang seperti kulit mati. Hasilnya wow! Karena ternyata kulit kita belum bersih sekali, kelihatannya saja sudah bersih namun masih ada kotoran menempel. Karena bekas liptint tadi makanya warna kotoran yang keluar semu-semu merah.

Hasilnya aku sukaaaa... Karena bikin kulit wajah jadi lembut, lembab juga dan lebih cerah. Semua dalam 1 manfaat. Efeknya skincare yang dipakai selanjutnya jadi lebih mudah menyerap, pastinya bikin efek skincare lebih maksimal. Selain itu, make up pun jadi lebih awet karena kondisi kulit yang sudah maksimal tersebut.

+ Praktis karena berupa sachet
+ Mudah digunakan
+ Membuat kulit jadi lembab, lembut, kenyal dan cerah seketika
+ Mendukung pemakaian make up dan skincare setelahnya

- Aromanya yang terlalu kuat bagi beberapa orang

V10 Plus Water Based Peeling Facial Mask merupakan salah satu cara terpraktis untuk mendapatkan kulit idaman, karena dengan peeling secara berkala (seminggu 2x) bisa meregenerasi kulit sehingga kulit menjadi sehat. Efeknya langsung bisa dirasakan seketika dan ga perlu repot ke klinik lagi, biaya juga jadi lebih hemat. Membersihkan wajah secara rutin itu perlu loh, dan jangan lupa pakai skincare favoritmu setelahnya untuk kulit cantik terawat.

Thank you V10 Plus Indonesia...!!!
