New stuff from Watsons..

It's no secret that Watsons is one of my favorite shops to go to. Heck, I can stay inside Watsons for hours without getting bored. Definitely it's a one-stop-shop for me...i can buy food, medicines, makeup and more! And lately, it's getting a lot more exciting to pay them a visit because they always come up with new stuff to offer.

In Java (Indonesia) brides-to-be are treated in a luxurious purifying treatment where their bodies are painted with Javanese Lulur made from finely ground rice, nuts, turmeric root, ginger, cinnamon and sandalwood powder. After the paste has dried, it will gently be rubbed off their bodies to exfoliate, polish and get rid off dead skin cells. This will be done 40 days prior to their wedding day. So yes, expect a brighter, whiter and smoother skin for the bride on her wedding day.

Of course, we no longer need to go to Java, or be a bride to experience this purifying treatment. Thanks to the PT. Gloria Origita Cosmetic for coming up with Purbasari Body Scrub which won the Top Award Brand in 2010. I've been using the Asian Secrets Lulur body scrub for months now and liking it, but of course it's always good to try new stuff.

Purbusari Lulur Body Scrub Lightening

Cleanses, removes impurities and dead skin cells, while brightening and smoothing skin. Proven to remove dark spots and moisturizes dry, rough skin

Purbusari Lulur Body Scrub Whitening + Vitamin E

Suitable for all skin types, it is enriched with squalene oil, olive oil and Vitamin E in order to moisturize skin

Me and my mom are users of the Asian Secrets Lulur, I can't wait for her to try this and let's see what she likes more :)

Vitacreme B12 Regenerative Cream

The first cosmetic cream containing Vitamin B12, an essential component for healthy skin. With deep penetrating capability, Vitacreme B12 helps regenerate, nourish and moisturize skin.

- stimulates renewal of skin cells
- hydrates and softens skin tissues
- rejuvenates and improves skin elasticity and firmness
- revitalizes and diminishes age lines and existing wrinkles
- helpt to prevent premature wrinkles
- repairs and rebalances the skin's natural defense system
- relieves and soothes chapped skin
- smoothes or attenuates new or old scars
- helps prevent peeling after a sunburn
- can be used as a day cream and/or cosmetic base

Okay, I must say I am so intrigued with this cream. I tried this just tonight, and hopefully i won't experience any allergic reactions. If i won't, i'll try this on myself and let's see if this would help me with my "aging" problem..LOL!

Nanomed Finale Whitening Cream

Made from natural essences and herbal ingredients, like tamarind extract, emblem extract, ipomoea extract, aloe vera extract, AHA, Vitamins A, C, E and F, Squalene and Allantoin, the NanoMed Finale Whitening Cream is a non-greasy formula that is easy to use. Apart from whitening, its benefits include removing dead skin cells, boosting skin clarity and tone, protecting against moisture loss, and making skin smoother and suppler.

Known as the #1 whitening cream in Thailand, this cream is said to be suited also for our climate since we also have a tropical climate like Thailand's. What's also good about this is that it doesn't have hydroquinone and mercury which are harmful to our skin. I've been using this on my elbows and i'll post an update in a few weeks and let's see if this really works.

Other Finale products:

Purederm Botanical Choice Exfoliating Foot Mask

A foot exfoliant plus treatment filled in a pair of wearable mask sheets. Put on the mask as you would your socks. It removes all calluses over time, visibly smoothing your feet within 2 weeks. Papaya, Lemon, Apple, Orange and other natural botanical extracts remove calluses while chamomile extract calms freshly exfoliated skin.

This one I've been wanting to try since I got it. I'm having 2nd thoughts though since I always wear sandals and I'm afraid I'll leave traces of dead skin wherever I go when my feet start peeling...ewww, LOL! I'll save this for some other time when I can be on a longer vacation (and when exactly would that be anyway!?)

Indeed, Watsons doesn't stop from offering us the best products out there. I won't be surprised if one day, those brands that we only get to read online and are available abroad will also be available here thru them.

Do you have any other brands that you would want to be available here in our local Watsons stores? More makeup brands for me, of course!

Thanks to our friends from Watsons and Genson for these gifts!

I always claim that I hate whitening products since the quest for whiter skin is so futile... but when I see the description "whitening" on a product, I do a double take anyway. XD I'm so interested to try that Indonesian scrub!
