Juara Skincare & My New Found Love for Radiance Vitality Oil

I’ve had had my eyes on Juara Skincare eversince a friend of mine pointed it out at Female Daily Forum that there’s this American brand that was co-founded by Metta Murdaya and based on the philosophy of the Indonesian jamu tradition. For the longest time, this brand is not available in Indonesia. Though it’s co-founded by Indonesian, it’s a product that is actually made in the U.S. As soon as the product come to shore, somehow this brand fell off my radar because it was not easy to find in Indonesia. However, my curiosity for the brand came back late last year when I discovered that they’re launching Juara Radiance Vitality Oil, naturally I put it on my wishlist.

It wasn’t until recently that I’m experiencing eczema and realised that turmeric is among one of the many good ingredients that can keep my skin situation at bay that I revisit the Juara Skincare lineup which is apparently now can be easily purchased from Sephora Indonesia Online, which is where I got my Juara Skincare products from.

These three products came just right in time of my skin emergency. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of opening up a pretty box filled with beauty products that you know your skin will love. Of course it’s only been a week since I first got these babies, so I thought I’ll give you a first impression.

Another cleansing oil review but this time from Tata Harper

For someone who proclaim to not really like cleansing oil, you must be wondering why am I posting two cleansing oils post consecutively? I though I might as well get it out of the way so you all know that these are about the only cleansing oils that I’ve tried so far.

Other than Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil and DHC Deep Cleansing Oil that I’ve previously reviewed here, I’ve also tried cleansing oils from:

  • The Body Shop, affordable and great scent! Great for cleansing makeup but still DHC and Fancl excel at removing makeup IMO. But then again, it’s easy to find here in Indonesia.
  • Astalift, great at removing makeup, light texture but considering the price, not really memorable.
  • Tatcha, one of the best cleansing oils that I’ve tried! I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this. Now that it’s gone I don’t know whether I’ll be able to write a review. It’s light, expensive (so I wont use it to remove makeup), yet it’s great for removing makeup.

Anyway, this post is actually not about cleansing oil but more about my current favourite cleansing oil: Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser . When it comes to cleansing products, Ms. Harper surely knows how to create a lush cleansers! Each and every one cleansers that I’ve tried from this brand is really something else.

First of all, let me tell you that it’s not easy to find a cleansing oil that can emulsify from natural brand. But this cleansing oil emulsify easily. Tata Harper’s Nourishing Oil Cleanser feels really gentle on the skin and it’s filled with ingredients that are good for your skin such as beta carotene, vitamins A, C and E as well as lycopene and omega 3.

The Battle of the Cleansing Oils: DHC Vs. Fancl

I’m not a big fan of cleansing oil, so there are very little cleansing oil in the market that I’ve tried. The reason is because I find cleansing balm and cream much more comforting to use on my dry skin. But I must admit cleansing oil is the easiest to use to remove makeup, especially if you’re using waterproof eye makeup such as eyeliner and mascara that are fibre-based and made in Japan. God, they’re really hard to remove!

Anyway, eventhough cleansing oil melt away all makeup in one swipe, never forget to emulsify it first. If you haven’t already know how to use cleansing oil properly, read this article on all about cleansers (unfortunately written in Bahasa Indonesia).

From my recent trip to Japan, I picked up two renowned cleansing oil from brands that I’ve trusted. They are the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil.

Here’s what you need to know first about both cleansing oil: their ingredient list is pretty short (although I can’t really tell what’s inside Fancl since it’s in Japanese) and they’re free from mineral oil. I have no problem with cleansers that use mineral oil, but I know most people out there mind.

We’ll start with the famous DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.
