BIOKOS & Caring Colours - Love Our Local Product

Let's say, until today all of my blog posts are written in English. But, do you know that the fact is I'm an Indonesian? (*≧∀≦*)

Even there's no information on my blog about my citizen status, I just wanna say that I'm happy to being an Indonesian (even it's not pure Indonesian since my dad is a Chinese). I was born and grew up here. Can't imagine if I left this metro city (´д`ι)

As Indonesian, I want to support our local beauty products by using it and spreading the fact that local products are also as good as imported ones. And to make it more Indonesia, I'm gonna make a dual lingual review, English and Bahasa.

And for your note, I use the IBB photo mark on all of my photos here because my review will also being published on IBB's website  (*≧∀≦*)


The products consist of 3 skin care products from BIOKOS and 3 makeup products from Caring Colours.


Let's start with BIOKOS first (^▽^)/

BIOKOS Pure Balance 20s - Scrub Gel


The product comes in a green box with plastic seal. So, if you bought this one, make sure the seal isn't  broken.

Produk ini dikemas dalam sebuah box berwarna hijau dan disegel. Jadi, jika kamu membeli produk ini, jangan lupa untuk memastikan segelnya tidak rusak ya.


Behind the box you'll find (quite) detail information about the product. It's written in both Bahasa and English.

Di belakang box tersebut, kamu akan menemukan penjelasan yang cukup detil tentang produk ini. Tenang aja, penjelasannya ditulis dalam bahasa Indonesia dan bahasa Inggris, kok.


In the side box, you can find the ingredients and some statements about the product. This product is dermatologically tested and clinically proven which indicates that it's safe for our skin. No animal testing means the process of making this product isn't harm other animals.

Di sisi samping box, kamu dapat menemukan informasi tentang komposisi dan beberapa pernyataan tentang produk. Produk ini telah diuji secara dermatologis dan terbukti secara klinis yang berarti produk ini aman dipakai untuk kulit kita. Produk ini juga tidak diujikan pada binatang yang menujukkan kalau dalam proses pembuatan produk, tidak ada binatang yang disakiti untuk dijadikan binatang percobaan.


The exact size of the product is surprising me. It's quite small compared with the box size. But, I think it will last for about a month (or maybe more) since I only scrub my face once a week.

Ukuran produk yang sebenernya cukup mengejutkan. Cukup kecil jika dibandingkan dengan ukuran boxnya sendiri. Tapi, aku rasa produk bisa dipakai selama 1 bulan (atau mungkin lebih) karena aku hanya melakukan scrub pada wajah satu minggu sekali saja.


Behind the tube, you'll see some information in English. It's very unfortunate for me, since this is the local product, it should give information in Bahasa instead of English. We should be proud of our national language, shouldn't we?

Di belakang tube produk, kamu dapat melihat penjelasan yang ditulis dalam bahasa Inggris. Hal ini sangat aku sayangkan, karena produk ini adalah produk lokal. Seharusnya informasi yang diberikan ditulis dalam bahasa Indonesia saja dibandingkan bahasa Inggirs. Kita seharusnya bangga dengan bahasa nasional kita, kan?


The texture of the product is thick with some scrub beads. Can't say the scrub beads is soft enough because I feel it was quite rough on my face. By the way, I like the green coloured (。→∀←。)

Tekstur dari produk ini cukup kental / padat dengan beberapa butiran scrub. Bisa dibilang kalau butiran scrubnya tidak cukup lembut untuk muka, karena pada saat pemakaian, aku merasa scrubnya terlalu kasar. Ngomong - ngomong, aku suka warna hijaunya (。→∀←。)

BIOKOS Pure Balance 20s - Oil Control Mask


Same as BIOKOS Scrub Gel, this product comes in a green box with plastic seal. So, if you bought this one, make sure the seal isn't  broken.

Sama seperti BIOKOS Scrub gel, produk ini dikemas dalam sebuah box berwarna hijau dan disegel. Jadi, jika kamu membeli produk ini, jangan lupa untuk memastikan segelnya tidak rusak ya.

It comes in bigger size than the Scrub Gel. I don't know how long it will last since I haven't ran out of this product. But, I think it depends on how often you use this mask and how much product you use on each usage.

Kemasan tubenya lebih besar dibandingkan dengan Scrub Gel. Aku masih belum tahu dalam jangka waktu berapa lama produk ini akan habis karena aku masih belum menghabiskan satu tube penuh produk ini. Tapi, aku rasa hal itu tergantung pada seberapa sering kamu menggunakan masker ini dan seberapa banyak produk yang kamu gunakan setiap kali maskeran.


Behind the tube, you can find information in English.

Di belakang kemasan tube, kamu bisa menemukan informasi dalam bahasa Inggris.


The mask cream comes in green coloured with thick consistency. The texture is kinda like tooth paste. I don't really like the feeling on my face after the mask gets dry on my face. My face feels so tight. After washing my face with water, I can feel that my face becomes softer and shine-free. I really recommended this product to you who have oily face because this product can reduce oil on your face even after first time  usage.

Krim maksernya berwarna hijau dengan konsistensi yang kental. Teksturnya terasa seperti pasta gigi. Aku kurang suka ketika masker mulai mengering di wajahku. Wajah terasa sangat kencang dan tertarik. Setelah mencuci muka, aku bisa merasakan kalau kulit wajahku terasa lebih halus dan bebas kilap. Aku sangat merekomendasikan produk ini  untuk kalian dengan tipe wajah yang berminyal (oily) karena produk ini bisa mengurangi minyak di wajah, bahkan setelah pemakian pertama saja.

BIOKOS Pure Balance 20s - Oil Control Mask


Same as BIOKOS Scrub Gel and BIOKOS Oil Control Mask, this product comes in a green box with plastic seal. So, if you bought this one, make sure the seal isn't  broken.

The bottle is unique with that bulging flipped-up cap. The size itself is quite small, contains only 35 ml.


Behind the tube, you can find information in English.

Di belakang kemasan tube, kamu bisa menemukan informasi dalam bahasa Inggris.



The texture is gel. It absorbed fast onto the skin and give cooling sensation. It moisten our skin without making our face becomes oily.

Teksturnya adalah gel. Produk ini menyerap cepat ke dalam kulit dan memberikan efek dingin setelah pemakaian. Produk ini melembabkan kulit tanpa membuat wajah kita menjadi berminyak.

Caring Colours - Luxurious Perfecting Blush (Rose Desire)


The packaging is dominated with pink colour with a silver button to open the product. A Caring Colours logo also printed on the front side. The front side of the packaging can reflect the light and any objects.

Kemasannya didominasi oleh warna pink dengan tombol silver yang digunakan untuk membuka tutup produk. Logo Caring Colours juga tercetak pada bagian depan kemasan. Bagian depan kemasan ini bersifat reflektor.


On the back side, there's some information about the product.

Di bagian belakang, tertulis informasi tentang produk.


This product has BPOM number, it means this product is safe and trusted.

Produk ini terdaftar di BPOM sehingga aman digunakan dan terpercaya.


The blush comes with a brush and a mirror. As for me, this blush is travel friendly.

Perona pipi ini juga dilengkapi dengan kuas dan kaca. Menurutku, perona pipi ini praktis jika dibawa bepergian.


Surprisingly, the colour is pigmented enough. Just need one or two swipes and you'll get the colour popped on  your cheek.

Cukup mengejutkan, warna dari perona pipi ini cukup jelas. Hanya butuh satu atau dua kali pulasan dan warnanya sudah terlihat jelas di pipi kamu.

Caring Colours - Eye Liner (Black)


The packaging is so so, dominated with black coloured and a silver cap.

Kemasannya terlihat biasa saja, didominasi oleh warna hitam dengan tutup berwarna silver.


The pencil itself looks like a standard pencil colour #LOL. What I dislike is it should be sharpen manually with a sharpener. It will be better if it came in retractable pencil.

Pensilnya sendiri terlihat seperti pensil warna standard #HAHAHA. Yang aku tidak suka adalah pensil ini perlu diraut secara manual dengan rautan. Akan lebih baik jika dibuat menjadi model retractable yang dapat diputar dan tidak perlu diraut.



This eyeliner is pigmented enough, gives you a really black line as the result. But the minus point is, it's easily smudging after (even) a soft rub.

Eyeliner ini cukup pigmented, memberikan hasil garis dengan warna yang cukup hitam. Kekurangannya adalah, cepat sekali luntur, bahkan hanya dengan gosokan yang lembut sekalipun.

Caring Colours - Happy Eye Shadow (05 Happily Ever After)


The packaging is so so with transparent cover and pink colour all over the body. The HALAL sticker is also attach on the cover.

Kemasannya biasa saja, dengan tutup yang transparan dan warna pink di seluruh badan kemasan. Ada stiker HALAL yang menempel di tutup kemasan.



On the back side, there's a little information that written in Bahasa and also the ingredients.

Di bagian belakang, ada informasi singkat yang ditulis dalam Bahasa dan juga perihal komposisi produk.


This product comes with a dual applicator (brush & sponge). The minus point is it has no mirror.

Produk ini juga dilengkapi dengan aplikator ganda (kuas & sponge). Kekurangannya adalah tidak adanya kaca di dalamnya.


Consists of 1 matte eye shadow colour (brown - left one) and 3 shimmering eye shadow colour (pink - soft pink - blue). I think the colour is wearable for every day use.

Terdiri dari 1 matte eye shadow (coklat - paling kiri) dan 3 shimmering eyeshadow (pink - pink muda - biru). Aku rasa warnanya cukup aman jika digunakan untuk sehari - hari.


This eye shadow is really pigmented and the colours are beautiful. No need using eye shadow primer to popped out the colour.

Eye shadow ini sangat pigmented dan warna - warnanya sangat cantik. Tidak perlu lagi menggunakan eye shadow primer untuk memunculkan warnanya.

t1 Essence Recovery

Do you have damaged / coloured hair? Or your hair has been through other chemical process?
Are you looking for a hair vitamin essence that can recover your hair condition and makes it become more healthy in a simple way?

Then you might looking for this t1 Intesive Essence Recovery.


Packing in an orange hard plastic bottle , it gives a fresh feeling when I see it. In the name of hygiene, the spray itself is covered with a plastic cap.



On the back of the bottle you can find a short information about the product, direction (how to use) and ingredients.



All information on the back of the bottle is written in English. But don't worry, MAKARIZO gives the details in Bahasa too. They even add information about the main ingredients, which is Hydrolized Silk Protein and Multi Vitamin.

Hydrolized Silk Protein is a nutrition to recover your dry and damaged hair. Meanwhile, the vitamins will maintain the natural hair strength and protect the hair from damage.


The nozzle spray is good even it's made from plastic :)


The product actually is water based. It also have fresh floral fragrance.
I usually use it after bathing. I spray some amounts of t1 Essence Recovery onto my hair and even the product with my hand. Then I blow my hair (yep, I like to use hair dryer almost every day). And by using this product, my hair smells so good and also looks more healthy.

Somehow it makes my coloured hair looks brighter under the light and I really like this effect.
Besides, I suppa like the fragrance :)

Lola Box October #MAKEUP&BEYOND

My very first Lola Box had been arrive!
I know, most of you already familiar with Lola Box (so do I) and some of you may already subscribed for some boxes of Lola.

But I've never subscribed to any beauty boxes before, so I'm super excited to received this Lola Box (*≧▽≦) So I'm gonna tell you every detail of this beauty box (since this is my first time receiving a beauty box :p)


It came in white cartton box with Lola logo and sticker on it. My name and address are written on a label, attached on the right top of the box (I blurred it on this photo).


When I opened it, there's a lime coloured box with Lola logo on it. The box itself is made by hard carton.


As you see, the box is so pretty ❤ The lime green colour makes it looks fresh. I think I'll reuse it as a storage box because it's so pretty and sturdy (*^▽^)


When I opened the box, there's a greeting card wrapped by a green ribbon. There's also a Laneige Trial Set Card. I don't know why this Laneige Card has to be there, it should stay behind the greeting card, I guess.



After I removed the greeting card, there's a green envelope behind. It contains some shopping vouchers. Actually after I see this envelope, it makes me think that the Laneige Card should be placed in this envelope to make the box looks neater, am I right?


Behind the envelope, there's an orange tissue paper (still wrapped by a green ribbon). So the items from Lola Box is wrapped with this orange tissue paper and green ribbon which (I think) is match with the theme of this month, MAKEUP & BEYOND.


These are the beauty products, samples & vouchers in Lola Box October.

  • Rudy Hadisuwarno Hair Intese Repair Serum (full size)
  • Elianto Ultra-Define Eyebrow Pencil (full size)
  • Vitamin Science Vita Advanced Whitening (sample)
  • Vitami Science BB Cream (sample)
  • Laneige Water bank Gel Cream (sample)
  • Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX (sample)
  • La Perla Perfume (vial)
  • Manicare Magic Buffer (editor's choice)
So, there are 2 full size products + 4 samples + 1 vial perfume + 1 Manicare Magic Buffer
Total : 8 products

What's my favourite in Lola Box October?

Definitely the Elianto Ultra-Define Eyebrow Pencil ❤
I'm also curious with the Laneige sample products, just can't wait to try and get more samples by exchange the Laneige Sample Set Card at Laneige counter (*≧▽≦)
Not to mention the luxola shopping vouchers!



Behind the greeting card, there's a price calculation for all products inside the box.
Let's make a comparison for a real price of this box :
  • Rudy Hadisuwarno Hair Intese Repair Serum - IDR 73.700 (full size)
  • Elianto Ultra-Define Eyebrow Pencil - IDR 39.000 (full size)
  • Vitamin Science Vita Advanced Whitening - IDR ? (price is unknown, Luxola hasn't sell this product until I write this post)
  • Vitami Science BB Cream - IDR 8.216 / 1 ml (sample)
  • Laneige Water bank Gel Cream - IDR 7.460 / 1 ml (sample)
  • Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX - IDR 14.000 / 4 ml (sample)
  • La Perla Perfume - IDR 19.944 (vial)
  • Manicare Magic Buffer - IDR ?
Compare with the total prices you should pay for all the items, I think IDR 145.000 for a Lola Box is really worth it.
By my calculation, the real price for this box is (around) IDR 162.320
note : exclude the price for Vitamin Science Vita Advanced Whitening & Manicare Magic Buffer, so the exact price should be higher than my calculation.
So, what are you waiting for?
