Cetaphil Experience 2016 @ Karma Kandara, Bali

Heyo! I am back and ready to share more about my travel experiences and discoveries with Cetaphil® here. As you can see from my social media updates recently I was having a great fun time in the sun, sea and learn about skincare in Bali. Well indeed it was a memorable 4-day skin retreat Cetaphil® Experience 2016 in Karma Kandara, Bali with a group of South East Asia’s popular female influencers to discover and embrace the many facets of Skin Confidence through workshops and various fun activities. 

The Cetaphil® Experience 2016 @ Karma Kandara, Bali

Let’s start the journey… so from Malaysia there were 3 of us - Hanie, Amira (the winner) and myself. Love you girls! Something to green with envy is our huge double-storey villa. We had a private pool with jacuzzi, huge living room, kitchen and dining area fit for 10 people and there are 3 rooms. Ahhh… I miss my villa in Karma Kandara.

Throughout the 4 days skin retreat at Cetaphil® Experience 2016, I got to know many bloggers and influencers from South East Asia such as Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines and Thailand.

Onto some serious but fun stuff – The workshop program was really exciting and engaging with interactive workshops, outdoor photography class and other activities including bonfire, interview sessions, spa sessions, hangout at the beach and others.

Some of interactive workshops

I love the interactive workshops conducted by the skin expert and pharmacist Tracy Chean and hosted by Martina Fink. Not only I learned more about Cetaphil’s products but also discovered a few myth-busters about skincare and cosmetics.

The more Cetaphil® products I tried, the more I love them. The new Cetaphil® Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion for dry to very dry skin is the best moisturizer that gives an intense hydration for 24 hours and it’s not oily or greasy at all. It doesn’t have to be a cream, a lotion loaded with the right combination of 5 key ingredients, Epidermal Replenishing Complex 5 can provide such an intense hydration and it’s ideal for sensitive skin.

Cetaphil® products

Even the dermatologist love Cetaphil® too because the products are so gentle on our skin and suitable for sensitive skin; its PH balanced and non-alkaline; non-comedogenic; free from lipid, loaded with lots of hydrating ingredients and does not strip skin natural emollients.

Oh yes! I would like to share some skincare myth-busters here. Well I used to assume that the more creamy the product means it is more moisturizing. This is wrong, the fact is the ingredients. Oh one more, don’t forget to applying sunblock every day, it is a must even though we stay in-door because there are still harmful UV rays around us.

The self-discovery workshop also helped me to identify what my skin really need and understanding the importance of choosing the right skincare regime. Hey, I didn’t know that I can save 22 minutes a day by simplifying my skincare regime into to 3 steps. Wow! Imagine I can save how many hours in a year and use it to workout more or prepare more healthy meals at home.

Most of the meals that I chose throughout the trip were quite healthy :D

To have good skin one must also lead a healthy lifestyle. Besides using the right skincare that is suitable for our skin and free from all the harmful ingredients; we must eat a balanced diet, exercise and have enough sleep. Plus feel good and be confident with ourselves. Cetaphil® also believes that a holistic approach to skincare is the secret to looking good inside and outside.

Capturing Skin Confidence workshop by Cynthia Hunt

The outdoor Capturing Skin Confidence photography workshop with Cynthia Hunt, professional photographer from the US was really fun. We picked up many photography tips from her such as lighting, angle, the rule of thirds and many more. After that it was the hand-on session and the challenge. All of us were busy capturing out best shots while applying the photography principles and tips from what we have learned earlier. It’s fun and exciting…

Karma Spa by the beach on Sunday afternoon

The pampering and spa session at the Karma Spa by the beach on Sunday afternoon was awesome, I slept throughout the massage session. It was so good and relaxing.

Wotz! bondfire and dinner at the beach

Overall the Cetaphil® Experience 2016 4 days skin retreat a Karma Kandara, Bali was journey of self-discovery to develop a deeper understanding about skincare and Skin Confidence. Well, to me Skin Confidence is all about embracing and be comfortable with how we look and who we are.

So girls, do love and take good care of ourselves first before we can care for others. Feeling great inside, can make us look good on the outside. I believe that we are beautiful in our own way.
