How to shop on taobao

Some people have been asking me about how I shop various items from taobao.
Before I'm telling the method, I'll briefly explain what taobao is about..

Basically, taobao is a website that gathers various stores in it. It's almost similar to ebay, but I found that some shops are usually really creative in creating the layout design for their websites.
There are so many items in taobao, you can find anything. From wigs, fashion items, electronics, even food and drinks. LOL. 

Some of you might think, I can read/write chinese, because I can almost find various things that I want from taobao. In fact, NO :")
Here's some tips and trick if you want to search particular items from taobao.

Use google translate. (this is my secret method on understand the item description and search items that I want).

As an example, I'm going to search dresses in japanese style..

1. Go to

2. Write keywords in the text box that you wanted to buy. After you press enter, you will see something like this picture.

write unique word about the items that you search. The easiest way to search is to write the brand name, like amo/liz lisa/milk/angelic pretty, etc.. You can also write popular magazine name like vivi, lena,etc..
Also, you need to specify the items that you want to search, whether it's shoes or bag or clothes,etc.
If you don't know the chinese words, go to google translate.

3. From various choices of items that come up from the search list, click on the image that you like. Then you will be directed to the website store and you will see something like this.

after translating to english

Directly use google translate for the website, so it's easier for you to search things that you like.
However, if you already frequent visit taobao, it's better to read the chinese words so you'll used to see chinese. Sometimes the description of some items will be using pictures, so you won't be able to translate it by using google translate.

To search things, it's only as simple as that~ easy right? hehehe.


Alright, another knowledge~

Here's Taobao rating system (from lowest to highest). 
More people visit the shops, then the rate will goes up.

*Usually I only buy items from shops that have minimal 4 diamond, so it's more secure because there are many people who have bought from the shop.

Other than the steps that I've told you.. Most of the time, when I wanted to buy particular item, I will search people's review about some products from some shops. That's because you'll know the quality of the items from that shop, usually pictures from real life can tell it's quality right?
However the downside is, the price would be higher compared to the items that you search using the search box (the method I've explained earlier).

Last step, which is very important~ Search an agent which able to help you buy the things you want.

For Indonesian,
Link of the taobao agent : HERE
or if you buy items within small quantity, you can try this LINK (the agent ship internationally)

Alright, that's all for today.
Hope it's helpful :)

[Kojie san] Skin Lightening Soap

today I'm going to share my opinion about Kojie san Soap.

Before sharing my review about this product, I found some background info that I got from Kojie san website and ads.

  • Functions: Helps lighten dark spots due to acne, age spots, freckles, sun-damaged skin, and other skin pigmentation
  • Directions: Use daily as a regular soap for the face and body.
  • Ingredients: Pure Kojic Acid, Sweet Orange, VCO, Glycerine, Vegetable Extracts, Vitamin C

So, the products are sponsored by Kojie san Indo. For the soap, they have 3 size: 30gr, 65 gr, and 135gr.
From the product catalogue I got, other than soap, they also sell skincare like toner, cream, cleanser,etc. 

Actually I don't like Soap in bar/solid type, because it's not practical and will took longer time to shower. However I still try the soap because I'm curious with the result.

Medium and big bar have plastic package to maintain its quality if the soap, while the smallest size don't (but the outer packaging is already made from plastic).
Since my skin is kinda sensitive, so I tried the smallest soap bar first to test whether it suits my skin..

In about 1 month, the soap already become like this XD it become very small and fragile. lol.

So, I'm just going to summarize my thought about the soap. Hope you find it helpful~

The soap has orange fruit scent which is very interesting. The soap also produce foam easily (while some soap bar don't). 
Maybe some of you will react, " are you kidding me? I think all soap could produce foam easily, or else people won't use it... 
My answer: Because the soap have many natural ingredients, so the soap can melted easily, which will help people to have liquid type of soap and make it easier to produce more foam than other soap bars.

I tried using the soap on my knee, since my knee have darker tone color than the surroundings. What I found after using it for almost 1 month, my knees are 1 skin tone lighter, than previously. hoho.
Eventhough I heard this soap can dry the skin, it didn't happen to me. I found that my skin is in normal condition. There's also no side effect to me (skin feeling itchy or become red).

*note: I don't use the soap for my face or other part of body since I'm scared that I will achieve lighter skin color. I don't want to be more white, or else I can be like zombie (?) Better to prevent right? LOL.

1. You must put the soap in soap case/any case, because the soap can melt easily when there's water or placed direct sunlight/heat.
2. Try to buy the small size first if you're unsure whether the soap will suits you/not. That's because I found that people have numerous opinions about the soap. Some likes and can use the soap, but some others said the soap dry/irritate their skin..

Thanks for reading,
Have a great day <3
