Lulur

Purbasari and Asian Secrets Lulur are sold at Watson's, Mercury Drug, and supermarkets
Javanese Mandi Lulur is an ancient beauty treatment, which originated centuries ago in the palaces of central Java as a “purifying” ritual for Javanese princesses as they prepared for their wedding day.  It was in Java, that many secrets of health and beauty, utilizing the naturally occurring herbs, spices, foods, clays and minerals were created and used for the benefit of the royal family.

The Mandi Lulur or ‘royal wedding’ treatment, is traditionally given to women each day for 40 days preceding their wedding, to soften and sweeten their skin and prepare them for this most important of days.

A soapless bath. Spa at home. If you have dry skin, I recommend you to try this. I've had dry skin for years and no lotion can keep my skin soft and moisturised for hours until I was finally introduced to this. It's delicately scented (my fave is the white tub!) and it lingers on your skin. I love how gentle  the scrub is, it's safe for daily use. It claims to whiten skin though I can't prove it yet since I've been using this for a week. 
The downside? It's hard to find. I was only able to get hold of the 'famous green tub' because it was just placed somewhere in the supermarket shelves and it's the only one left there. They said it's being hoarded by other users. If ever you visit a supermarket or drugstore that sells this, don't just get one...you'll regret it. :))
