Radio-frequency Treatment at Olivia Bali


Hello beauties! How are you doing lately? I believe people are celebrating Chinese New Year Eve tonight. Families would prepare big tables for dinner at the restaurant or maybe just gather in one of their relative's house because the whole point of CNYE is to spend some family time and embrace the togetherness.

Well the downside of living abroad (like me), here in Perth is we don't normally get to experience the traditional way of celebrating. We still do celebrate Chinese New Year or also know as Xin Jia, just a little bit different and with a little improvisation. 

Although our families are back in our hometown and we are far away from our hong baos, we still feel the warmth of Xin Jia through our friends. We would gather at friends house to watch movies or play some card games and maybe drink a little bit of soju, haha. Dining at a Chinese restaurant is also a way of celebrating. And as for tomorrow, we've planned to have dim sum. I always love a good piece of hot siu may!

Hope you are celebrating a good Chinese New Year with your loved ones where ever you are! Now I'm going to get to the chase! In this post I am going to share about my experience trying Radio-Frequency treatment (RF) at Olivia, Teuku Umar, Bali. Remember in my BBB Gathering post, I have mentioned about winning the door prize of the event? Yep, this is the treatment that I was referring to.




The question that might pop in your head right now is..

What is RF treatment?

RF is a not-so-new treatment in the aesthetic industry that uses the Radio frequency electromagnetic radiation to rejuvenate skin, giving an instant firm and younger look in just about 20 minutes. This is the perfect solution for people who do not have the time for long treatments. Unfortunately the effect does not last forever, the therapist who gave me the treatment said that it only last about 3-5 days. Some women choose to do it regularly from once to twice a week and others just have an RF treatment occasionally, before going to a wedding or other special events.

The price for this treatment is also reasonable, around Rp. 300.000 for an instant effect. After the treatment I felt that my cheek bones were higher and my chubby cheeks are being stretched diagonally upwards. They also mentioned that it's able to give a bit of a v-line to my jaws although it didn't show significantly.


The downside of this treatment is, it may increase the production of black spots for people who already have skins prone to them. So a consultation to the doctor before any treatments would be best! Especially, since olivia provide free doctor consultation. So do not hesitate to ask several questions before deciding on a treatment! ;)


Another good news is RF treatment doesn't only apply for the face, you can do it on your body as well. In particular, your lumpy areas such as arms and thighs. During the 20 minute of my treatment the therapist just massage my face with the machine, it has a round metal end that touches my face. It didn't hurt at all and it was a bit warm when the machine was turned on. They used a clear gel so that the machine can move smoothly when glided on my face. After that, they put on a seaweed like coloured mask for relaxation.

I personally think that RF treatment would be more effective for people who have wrinkles, as they would show more significant difference in result as the machine rejuvenate and tighten the skin. People in their early 20's wouldn't really need RF treatment.


Beside RF Treatment, I also tried their IPL Underarm treatment. Although it wasn't sponsored, I was really tempted to give their lifetime IPL promo a try. So the promotion was basically you only have to pay once for Rp. 450.000 and you get to do IPL treatment for as much as you need. Yep that's until no more growing hair at all!

When the regular price of a one time treatment is Rp. 350.000. You get to save a lot of money with this one. It has been about 2 weeks after my treatment and I have realised the significant difference of hair growth. They are not only lesser but also thinner. I think this just might be the answer to every girl's problem with unwanted hair. Can't wait for my second treatment!

In summary, I really like the treatments that I had at Olivia. The place was clean and the therapists were friendly and highly trained. They have good product knowledge about the treatments and machine. The price list are reasonable and they have lots of promotion such as happy hours, bring your friends, etc.


They provide variety of treatments such as facial, filler, microdermabration and so much more. They also sell their own skincare products like their face wash that I am using at the moment. Haven't had any break outs so it's so far so good. Do visit their clinic when you have some free time while doctor consultation is still free of charge!

Sensatia Botanicals: Product of the Nature


Hello there!
I'm back with a new product review here, yay! So I've just discovered this brand called Sensatia Botanicals. They are a local brand originated from Bali. I always have a thing for local brands. It's basically because they normally don't cost as expensive and work just as well. Another thing is if we can have something made locally, why purchase imported ones right?

By supporting local brands we also support our local labours and workers. Which indirectly provides more job offers as the business grows. We also basically help our beloved country Indonesia move a step further away from poverty! Such a small act with a huge impact, isn't it?






But that's not the only positive side about Sensatia Botanicals. Their products are also natural and organic. It is mentioned clearly that they use only the finest raw material, producing 100% safe and natural products. Wow, that sounds promising!

No wonder, now Sensatia is trademarked in more than 40 countries. Sensatia is also Bali's first and only GMP Certified Cosmetic Company so far. They also supply their products to 5 stars hotels such as Alila Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Karma Resorts, Peppers Sentosa Seminyak, W Retreat & Spa Bali, The Stones Hotel Legian, Mandapa Ritz Carlton, The Katamama @ PotatoHead and the list goes on.


And for people outside Indonesia, you don't have to worry cause they ship worldwide! I might even buy some more Sensatia products to stock in Australia. You can simply go to their website and place your order. They provide all the details that you will ever need to know, such as ingredients, directions of use and even the skin type that each products are suitable for. So don't hesitate and give this brand a shot!

Here are the 5 products that I had the opportunity to review:


1. Unscented Sensitive Cream Cleanser ($15)
"The most important part of maintaining clear, healthy skin is with meticulous cleansing."

 Designed for all skin types, this product has won my heart. With its smooth and creamy texture, this product does a great job at removing my daily make up (base make up & brows) without needing make up remover at all and keeping my skin smooth and supple. Love love <3

Imagining putting all the natural ingredients on my face without having to worry the existence of any paraben give this product a double thumbs up. Although I should tell you in advance that my skin is combination and I'm only a bit oily on the T-zone. So it might work the same way for you, although they are suitable for all skin types. 

 Loaded with pure aloe vera juice, shea tree butter, green tea, rosehip, jojoba, kakadu plum, sea buckthorn, starfruit & papaya extracts.
Say hello to baby-like cheeks!


2. Acne Clarifying Charcoal Mask ($12)

Nowadays, Charcoal is one of the most used ingredient in high-end face masks. You might be wondering what's so special about this grey mud-like ingredient. So, charcoal is actually proven to be really effective in lifting up extensive make up and dirt which clogs up the pores of our face.

This earthy mask is also good for removing acne, although I had none at that time so I wasn't able to prove it. What I felt really surprised about was it's peeling effect. The box mentioned that it removes dead skin from your face but I didn't expect it to be that effective. I am saying this because my face felt really tingly as it dries up, like the feeling that I get after a facial and they put a peeling serum on my face, wow.

Simply rinse with warm water after usage.

Made out of pure kaolin clay and charcoal made from coconut husk we add starfruit, tamarind & gotu kola extracts and a boom-boom-pow acne-clarifying combination of tea tree, lemon & peppermint essential oils.

This mask is suitable to oily of acne prone skin.



3. Revitalising Hair Mask ($18)

Did you know that pampering your hair with a luscious hair mask every once a week is the answer to a healthy hair? It turns out that conditioner itself is not enough to keep your hair smooth and silky. Especially for those who regularly style their hair with hot iron. Extra measures such as serum, vitamin and masks are needed to revitalise its natural growing environment.

Loaded with aloe vera juice & shea butter; tamarind fruit extract & wild honey; meadow foam seed, coconut, avocado, extra virgin olive & argan oils; Argan & Tamarind Revitalising Hair Mask will surely spring life back into your hair.

Hair mask was the solution to my dry and split ends problems. Now masking my hair has been a weekly habit of mine. Not to mention how convenient and easy it is to do at home thanks to Sensatia Botanicals. Simply massage into damp hair preferably after washing, massage and wrap in warm towel for 15 minutes.

And there you have your healthy radiant hair. Personally I think this product is not creamy and moisturising enough, probably because it is only made out of natural ingredient but for people who do not like products that sticks on their hair. This is your perfect match!

You can use 1 packet of hair mask for about 3-5 times depending on your hair length.


4. Facial C-Serum Jasmine Blossom ($18)

Did you know that vitamin C helps reduce wrinkles and improves skin texture?
That's why this yellow coloured serum has became a part of my daily make up routine. After only using it for about a week I have felt my skin brightening up. It is also know to improve skin elasticity. This is definitely the new organic anti-aging skin formula. Paraben free and 100% natural. Yes, Vit C is the answer!

A light-yet-essential flowery sweet concoction packed with pure botanicals of aloe vera, jojoba bean, seabuckthorn, rosehip, ginseng root, starfruit & jasmine blossom to help nourish & protect skin.

The true star of the show is the USDA Organic, Wild Harvested Kakadu Plum Extract, an Australian superfruit containing the worlds richest source of vitamin C, (70x more than an orange.) 



Although the colour seems a bit thick at first it will disappear when you spread it and it doesn't give you a yellow skin tone ;)



5. Botanical Lip Protection ($5.95)
This one is a personal favourite. Lip products are always part of my travel essential kit. I always keep a lip balm and at least 2 lip colouring products in my bag (either a lip tint & a lipstick or a pair of lipsticks). Not for the sake of kissing like in the description of the product, but honestly chappy lips are such a turn off, haha.
Sensatia’s Botanical Lip Protection contains 100% pure, plant-based oils that are protein-
rich and packed with vitamins & minerals. 
Made of peppermint, aniseed, rose geranium, cocoa seed absolute essential oils and wild Bali honey.
Bye-bye chappy lips!


Overall, I really like all of their products! Especially the thought that it's all natural and paraben free. The price are also affordable so a restock to my cosmetic cupboard will definitely happen in a few weeks, haha. Varieties of smell and ingredients are also a win :)

Perfect for gifting as a souvenir from Bali as well, so don't forget to stop by at one of their stores!

Fun with Falsies Sponsored by AiGlowLashes


Hi Beauties! 
Untuk blogpost kali ini aku akan menggunakan bahasa Indonesia, berhubung yang akan ku review juga merupakan produk lokal. Jadi seperti kali sudah ketahui, beberapa waktu yang lalu aku menghadiri event Bali Beauty Blogger Gathering yang pertama (ada di blogpost sebelumnya). Di event itu kita dapet beberapa sponsor dan Aiglow Lashes menjadi salah satunya. Masing-masing blogger mendapat kira-kira 30 set of eyelashes.

Jujur awalnya aku sempet nervous tentang blog post ini karena aku ga terlalu bisa pasang bulu mata palsu. Bisa dihitung pakai jari berapa kali aku pasang bulu mata palsu sendiri. Tapi di luar dugaan merek Aiglow ini ternyata lumayan friendly for beginners. Karena ngga kaku dan cukup mudah di pasang. Walau ga semuanya bisa ku pasang dalam sekali coba. It's definitely much better than the few that I have tried previously.

Satu lagi keunggulan dari Aiglow lashes adalah varietynya yang bisa nyesuain sama bermacam-macam bentuk mata. Kita dapat 2 jenis yaitu AiGlow dan Papalona. Menurutku seri AiGlow lebih cocok untuk daily look sedangkan Papalona lebih memberi kesan glamorous dan cocok untuk pergi ke pesta atau dinner special. Namun jangan kuatir karena keduanya tetap terlihat sangat natural. Ngga heran banyak MUA yang memilih AiGlow dan ga mau pindah ke lain hati.

Papalona p13

AiGlow m2

Mungkin sedikit berbeda dengan review teman-teman yang memadukan falsies dengan full make up. Aku mengenakan 3 variant bulu mata AiGlow dengan daily natural look, agar terlihat jelas perbedaan variety bulu mata AiGlow dari yang paling natural, sedang dan cetar!
Seri yang pertama kukenakan adalah Papalona (P13).
Ini nih salah satu variant yang kuanggap paling cetar. Walau tanpa eyeliner maupun mascara, mata otomatis terlihat lebih hidup dengan AiGlow false eye lashes. Tipe ini menjadi favoritku dan pasti akan ku kenakan lagi. Next time akan kupadukan dengan full evening make up dan smokey eye agar terlihat lebih total.

 


look at those pretty lashes <3

 Yang berikutnya merupakan versi paling natural. Walaupun aku menggunakan base yang hampir sama seperti foto-foto diatas. Seri AiGlow 61 dengan bulu jarang-jarang ini membuatku terlihat sangat natural seperti tidak menggunakan make up sama sekali, bukan? Bulumata seperti ini sangat cocok di gunakan untuk membuat no make up look.

Jujur agak sedikit pucat di wajahku di bandingkan seri yang diatas karena bulu mata asliku sangat tipis dan tidak lentik. Namun, pasti ada para beauties di luar sana yang justru mencari bulu mata seperti ini karena lebih cocok dengan bentuk mata yang sipit dan lebih ringan saat digunakan




Jenis yang terakhir ini juga menjadi favoritku karena lebih ringan,dan sesuai untuk daily look. Bulu mata ini aku kategorikan dalam tipe sedang, tidak terlalu berlebihan dan lumayan casual. Aku bisa betah menggunakan ini berjam-jam walau hanya pergi ke mal terdekat. Walau tetap terlihat natural, bulu mata AiGlow versi m2 memberi aksen girly dan playful. Sangat mempercantik bulu mataku yang agak botak, hihihi.




Itu adalah ketiga varian bulu mata AiGlow yang aku pilih. Seneng banget akhirnya nemu bulu mata yang ga bikin aku kapok. Soalnya sejujurnya aku lebih memilih bulu mata dibanding eyeliner atau maskara karena mataku sangat mudah berair bikin make up jadi luntur. Meskipun uda pake eyeliner sewaterproof apapun (jadi curcol deh!). 

Ternyata bulu mata AiGlow juga bisa di gunakan beberapa kali loh, selama penyimpanan kita benar (kalo aku masukin ke boxnya aja lagi sih, hehe). Overall, I really recommend AiGlow falsies especially for beginners like me!

Why choose AiGlow?
  • Totally affordable
  • Lots of varieties to suit any looks!
  • Uber cute packagings
  • Soft, bendable and easy to use
  • Reusable
  • Natural & light-weighted
Who knew, using falsies could be so fun! Thank you AiGlow Lashes!




Love,


Clara
