One day, I received an unusual travel blogger gathering event invitation.

I said unusual because the event was organized by Purbasari, a local brand for beauty and skin care products in Indonesia. The event target was to introduce the benefits of Purbasari green tea body scrub for active travellers like us, travel bloggers. I was delighted and showed the invitation to my friend and jokingly said that probably they saw my skin really need some helps already.

You are so tanned!

That’s one of the most given comments by my family and friends whenever I was back from one trip. Although I think getting tanned is often inevitable but what disturbing me most is my skin looks dull, harsh and sometimes I can feel that there is one layer of dirt on my skin that I need to get rid off from. And that’s when I will usually have that urge to go to beauty salon for body scrub or milk bath session. But we all know that not every time we have that luxury of time and budget.

I admit that I have been neglecting my skin due to my work and travel schedule that often unpredictable. But with the numerous outdoor activities that often get myself exposed to the sun so much, I know I need to do something. But do I really need to limit my activities because of that?

To cut the story short, I said “Yes” to the invitation.

Peek Holidays - Tracy Chong in Purbasari Event

The Travel Blogger Gathering event was started with a presentation about the common skin problems we have, the causes and how Purbasari green tea body scrub helps to reduce the stresses to our skin. What rang to me loud was when the presenter said that Purbasari green tea body scrub is the only body scrub with double antioxidant that can be used everyday as substitute of shower cream.

Everyday? No way!

The presenter then explained to us that Purbasari green tea body scrub is using perfect round shape beads technology (Teknologi scrub bulat sempura). Hence, besides it is effective to remove dead skin cells, it also do not cause irritation to the skin.

With its Vitamin E and Green Tea Extracts that act as double antioxidant agents, Purbasari green tea body scrub expected to give a maximum protection to our skin – preventing skin dryness and dullness due to sun exposure and also preventing from premature skin aging. It sounded like exactly a product that I have been looking for.

After coming back from my recent trip to Sulawesi, I started to use Purbasari green tea body scrub whenever I took shower. At first, I was still tempted to use shower cream after using the scrub which was actually not necessary but my habit couldn’t help it.

I started with applying a small amount on the back of my palm, then to my whole hand and continue to my other parts of body. I could feel the beads was not as harsh as other commercial body scrub products I ever used. After rubbing in circular motion for some times to remove the dirt and dead skin cells, I rinsed it and to my liking, I noticed my skin was lighten and cleaner. Most importantly, it hydrates my skin as well. I felt my skin softer and smoother, plus, I love the green tea smell!
