Hello lovelies, Welcome back ! Today on this post, I’m going to share my new experience in trying personalized skincare. Have you ever tried skincare that personally made for you? Well this is my first time though, that’s why I was super excited when SOCOMY offer me a collaboration to try this brand’s products. So, the brand itself named BASE. They’re relatively new and they brought different concept of skincare to the market. Curious already? Let’s find out!

Everyone is unique so does their skin, so when we talk about skincare we couldn’t generalized to the same solution, we should look back what each individual skin needs. Please do remember, to always listen to your skin. Hence, BASE provides personalized skincare based on the needs of its users. The products itself are personally made based on what your skin type is, skin-goals and lifestyle. It’s such a great innovation, as BASE will help to those who are clueless about their skin and simplify the process of finding skincare that suit to their needs.

Thank you and ingredient card

You all might be wonder how does it work. Isn’t it? So BASE provides the free skin analysis by taking Skin Test on their website BASE. The skin test itself is to gather much information about your skin and lifestyle, that consists of what your skin type is, skin goals, your current skin condition such as the frequency of having acne, type of acne and so on. The test also will ask about skincare products you use for now, either you use active ingredients namely retinol, AHA/BHA; the frequency of having sun exposure and last is your lifestyle like sleeping habits and how you commute daily. After you’re done with your skin test, you can just simply sign up to the website with your active email to see the results and the recommended products. You will also find the breakdown of ingredients that match with your skin and its benefits. Sounds interesting to try right?

The products BASE offers are simply basic skincare which are personalized cleanser, toner and moisturizer. All made from plant-based (fully vegan and organic), cruelty-free, non SLS and artificial perfume colorant free. Worry not, they produced their products locally with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) facilities and BPOM certified already. Wohoo!!

So, I already took the skin test and the result mentioned the ingredients that are good for feeding my skin. Oh, my skin is dry to combination dehydrated, it changes sometime due to weather or women period time. So, I chose the Personalized Basic Kit, consists of full sized personalized Purifying Cleanser (100ml) and Moisture Cream (30ml). These products are formulated with some of the key ingredients include Jojoba Seed Oil (moisture sealer), Pullulan (locking moisture), Vitamin E (skin softener), Phytosphingosine (Cermaide booster), Avocado Oil (collagen promoter) and Ceramide (barrier enhancer). Not forget to mention, inside my terracotta box I also got a cute useful pouch, stickers and thank you card as well as “ingredients” card that come along together with the products. And yes, all these only cost for IDR 287,000 and they provide free delivery within Indonesia only.

And now it’s time for product review and own experience after using it.


Basically the packaging of BASE products come in white ceramic and labelled with your name printed on it “Made for Catharina”. It has pump dispenser with a white cap, this bottle is actually pretty heavy. I have to hold it carefully as it might slip from my wet hands. Information on how to use and other details are printed on the card box. It’s weighted for 100ml and retailed for IDR 98,000.

This cream cleanser is gentle and light to be used in morning or night. I like the natural scent from this cleanser, it smells like citrus-y? Well, sort of. Again, I’m not good enough in describing scent. Because of its smell, I really enjoy every seconds of my time in massaging my face. The texture itself more like lotion and no foam comes from it when mix with water. My skin feels soft after use and doesn’t feel dry nor tight. It’s one of the cleanser that protect the moisture of my skin in the same time doesn’t strip the natural oil.

This moisture cream has lotion texture in lightweight. It spreads easily on face and the absorption is pretty fast. I found it has glow finish that makes my skin looks healthy for instant. I use it on my AM and PM routine, two pumps of each use. But for night, it less moisture for my skin as I need heavier cream to keep my skin moist during my sleep. Thus, I sometimes mix it with face oil. While for the scent, it has the same smell with the cleanser, citrus-y.
