Asian Secrets Lulur Indonesian Whitening Facial Scrub

I've been using the Asian Secrets Lulur Body Scrub since 2010. Seriously. It's one of the mainstays in my bathroom since it's the best scrub I've ever tried! I love the green tea scent and how it exfoliates and moisturizes my skin at the same time. It's a drugstore product that up to this day earns a spot in my HG list - if you haven't tried it yet, well, you really should. ^_^

That said, I was pretty excited when the Asian Secrets Lulur Facial Scrub (P70/50g and P120/100g) came out. It promises to do what the body scrub does, which is to gently cleanse skin with lulur beads and whiten it at the same time. I like it because it's so gentle that it can actually double as a daily facial wash! Promise, the exfoliating beads are so soft that you won't even feel like you're using a scrub.

Nonetheless, it's an effective product in removing dead skin and mild blackheads.

Asian Secrets press launch in SM Makati

Last year, I've had the honor of being the digital endorser of Asian Secrets lulur. It was a very memorable experience! I got to appear on the radio and treat a bride-to-be* to my fave beauty products and a luxurious day at the spa, among other things. The main thrill for me though was getting first dibs on something that proved to be a popular, rave-worthy product



After a year and several jars of Asian Secrets later, I can tell you confidently that the AS lulur is the best body product I've ever tried. It cleans, moisturizes, and smells really good (scent is jasmine). It instantly brightens skin after one use, but overtime, it can somehow lighten dark areas like armpits and elbows. Some women said they didn't notice any lightening; on my end, my dark areas did indeed lighten - within average expectations, of course.

I've said all this many times that sometimes I feel like a broken record, hehe. I'm not paid to say any of this. The best way to find out is to try Asian Secrets for yourself. ;) 


So anyway. A couple of weeks back, Asian Secrets introduced their celebrity endorser, Solenn Heussaf, to the press. If you ask me, it's a perfect match! Solenn has that kind of effortless, natural beauty, the kind of aesthetic that AS lulur promotes.

Beauty bloggers gather to try Asian Secrets Lulur Body Scrub

The last event I organized in 2010 was for a brand that's very dear to my heart. I invited beauty and fashion bloggers to experience the Asian Secrets lulur body scrub the best possible way - why, in a spa, of course! You'll remember that I really enjoyed my time at Qiwellness in Salcedo Village, so I managed to hook up the two brands for this relaxing event.

Happy bloggers!

It was a very casual get-together as bloggers lounged in the soft white chairs of Qiwellness. I just gave them a short introduction about how lulur is part of an ancient Indonesian beautifying ritual for brides.

Why Vitamin E is good for your skin
First of all, because of its antioxidant activity, Vitamin E is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. 

Vitamin E added to lotions, creams, and other skin care products, as well as taken orally, plays a role in the anti-aging of skin. It helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, free radicals are believed to play an important role in skin aging and therefore the antioxidant activity is quite valuable for this skin problem.

There are a variety of other benefits of Vitamin E for skin care:

Beauty blogging has allowed me to reach out to women who want to be more beautiful but just don't know where to begin. Thus, when Asian Secrets asked me to run a contest for them, I was ecstatic! Not often do I get the chance to work with a great product as well as help new people through it. 

After announcing the winners, I set about purchasing and booking P40,000 worth of prizes. Here's my post with pictures of the winners and what they got! This post is about Kirby's makeover.

I was really excited about meeting the bride. I wanted to find out more about her and her wedding plans! Kirby is actually a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who is now taking Law at the University of the Philippines. Her soon-to-be husband is a scientist. Talk about intimidating!

So you've read all the raves for Asian Secrets lulur on GirlTalk and on my posts. Have you ever wondered though - what makes Asian Secrets effective in terms of whitening and moisturizing? Well, some of its key ingredients are green tea, Vitamin E and squalane.

Green tea helps with sun protection and aging. It combats free radicals and reduce inflammation instead of blocking UV rays (which is what sunblock does). The result is smoother, more supple skin.
