For us it is very strange to see females but males as well with a thick layer of cream on their face.
Well they don't want a suntanned colour. THey want to be as white as possible. So people make a mixture of ricewater and put it on their face when they leave the house for shopping. The people who can allow it buy products like the one shown in the picture.
It is whitening and nourishing. And the one with milk in it is the most expensive since cowmilc is really expensive and not available on Kalimantan. A can flown over from new zealand cost you about 12000 ir.
