[Wangsa Jelita] Natural & Healthy Lotion in Green Tea

Today I'm going to review a local Indonesian brand that I just knew of recently from Lolabox

Wangsa Jelita

Wangsa Jelita means "The Beautiful Dynasty". Such a beautiful name, isn't it? I'm always happy to find an up and coming local brand, and Wangsa Jelita is one of those. They provide bath & body products, such as soap bar, body lotion, body scrub, and beauty oil.

  • Retails for Rp 45.000,00 / US$5
  • 250 ml/bottle
  • Available in green tea, rose, and vanilla
  • Paraben-free
  • Phthalates-free
  • 100% non-harmful chemicals
  • 10% profits goes to farmer community
  • Ingredients: Aqua, Camellia sinensis (green tea water extract), Ricinus communis (hydrogenated castor oil), Stearic acid, Dimethicone, Cetyl alcohol, Isopropyl myristate, Octyl methoxycinnamate, Tocopheryl acetat (vitamin E), Glyceryl caprylate, Green Tea Fragrance (phthalates free).
  • Made in Indonesia

The packaging is probably the major drawback for this lotion (note that I have the travel size, I don't know whether the full-size have the same type of bottle or not). The bottle is like one of those hotel's conditioner/shampoo bottle, which makes it hard to get the product inside since the lotion is thick and the bottle is un-squeezable. I have to store it upside down and bang the bottle neck to get the lotion out. It's not THAT hard, but it is quite troublesome.

I looove the scent! It smells exactly like green tea, maybe like green tea frappuccino but less sweet, more fresh. I'm not good with describing scent (obviously), but I feel like this is a neutral scent as in I don't see anyone would be offended by it. The scent lingers for about 2 hours or so.

This lotion has a thicker consistency, which is one of the reason why it is a bit hard to get it out of the bottle, but it absorbs to your skin REALLY quickly. I'm very very extremely picky with my body lotion because I hate the sticky feeling left by it and so far my favorite -almost HG if I do say so myself as I kept repurchasing it, halfway through my 3rd bottle now- body lotion is the one from The Body Shop, especially the Satsuma one, as it doesn't left a sticky feeling. To my surprise, despite the thick consistency, this Wangsa Jelita body lotion actually beats my TBS one in the "no sticky feeling" department. TBS body lotion usually takes a minute or so to absorb, but this Wangsa Jelita body lotion only takes seconds and even more non-sticky than TBS.

The moisturizer of this lotion is pretty good. It left my skin velvety smooth, soft and hydrated for a good hour or so (note that my skin has been quite dry lately). 

Where to Find? 
Reseller information is still not available on the website, so for Indonesian, you can go HERE to buy their products online and for foreigners, you can go HERE(Singapore) or HERE

OVERALL: I like this body lotion, especially the scent and how quickly it absorbs into my skin. The fact that it is a natural Indonesian brand is just the cherry on top. It might replace my TBS body lotion for a quick on-the-go lotion since it instantly absorbed to my skin and not to mention it is half the price too. For everyday lotion though, I think it's less moisturizing than TBS one.

    I'm currently searching reviews about Wangsajelita, but unfortunately it's quite hard to find them. So thank you for the review ya :) It was very helpful. Anyway I do have some question if you don't mind, have you tried their Vanilla lotion? Because I'm craving to have one after I know that this body lotion aren't sticky~
    Thank you Lily :D


    1. Hi :)
      Really glad this review helps! I haven't tried the Vanilla though, that's usually the scent I avoid since I don't like sweet vanilla scent hehe, so I can't tell you how it smells. Sorry :x
      Stephanie from DOAPJ also reviewed this recently, so you can go to for more review about Wangsa Jelita :)
