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.

My Instagram followers know well that if there’s one brand that I love head over heels that would be Menard. I’ve just realised that I have very few Menard products reviewed yet. Except for the exception of the few posts that I’ve written for Female Daily, which for the purpose of sponsored review. Even my favourite go to line for hydration, Lisciare, I don’t have any single review yet on this.
As such, it will be my mission to get through the list of reviewing Menard products. Starting with Menard Tsukika cleansing cream!
Let me start with brief explanation on the Tsukika range. It’s the most basic range from Menard and product pricing starts from IDR 300,000 (cleansing cream) – IDR 480,000 (cream). I was shocked at first knowing that Menard actually have a line that’s quite affordable considering they have IDR 15 mil cream as well!
This range is perfect for those who just starting to use skincare and don’t know where to start as this offers basic maintenance for your skin. It’s also perfect if you don’t have any problem with your skin and want to try Menard for the first time. Especially if you’re under 25. But if you’re somewhere above 28 and starting to feel the need to add more juice to your skincare I would suggest to opt for Liscare instead.
The star ingredient in this range is Selenicereus flower extract or Bunga Wijaya Kusuma which only blooms on midnight. The scent of the whole line resembles closely with this flower and it is a delightful faint floral scent.
Now onto the review.

I’m sorry for the #nopostfebruary, I seems to get the message mixed up about the #nobuyfebruary. Are you kidding me? Naturally, on my birthday month, I splurge on a lot of things and shop till I drop :p
Anyway, my first post after a full month of hiatus will be the cult favourite among the Indonesian reader (is it cult yet?) – The Bath Box Sugar Face Cleanser. Sugar is made fresh hence there’s only limited stock available at any given time and it’s not available all the time on The Bath Box website. I’m not sure this is due to the fact that they can store it too long so they prefer the pre-order mechanism or some kind of marketing gimmick. It’s a smart one I must say if it is the latter.
Since a lot of people seems to be anticipating for this review I want to get two things straight first: the facts and the cons. So that I get all of them out of the way before I get into the good stuff. There are some, no worries girls.
The fact: it’s a preservative free and all natural gentle green tea cleanser. But not only that, it’s packed with kaolin clay, which I suspect is a green clay because the combination of clay and green tea alone will not be able to make the cleanser this green. It’s gentle, non drying and great for everyday cleanser – second or morning cleanser – or you can just use it whenever you think you need an extra deep cleansing without the help of a mask. It contains raw sugar granule for mild exfoliant.
Ingredients are as follows:
Kaolin, Carthamus Tinctorius Oil, Camellia Leaf, Vegetable Glycerin, Sucrose, Melaleuca Alternifolia Oil, Lavandula Officinalis Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis Oil, Tocopherol.
