Berhubung Hidden Content lagi naik daun, eke buka thread ya, spy bisa share pengalaman pake produk2 ini.
Gue gemar banget pake range body carenya BB, mulai dari lip balm, body lotion, sampe diaper ointment juga gue cobain (buat moisturizer tangan). Gue cocok banget dengan fragrance produk2 BB, wanginya natural/tdk sintetis. Secara umum gue lebi suka wangi produk2 BB dibanding TBS, BBW, bahkan LUSH (heresay! tapi betul).
Sayangnya BB belum ada di Indonesia, tapi gue baca2 mereka skrg sudah dibeli oleh grup kosmetik konglomerat intl (gue lupa yg mana), jadi kelihatannya bakal ada ekspansi intl (kalo gak salah di taiwan atau korea udah ada tokonya). Mudah2an masuk Indonesia soon, banyak banget produk2 barunya yg gue pengen coba! Hidden Content
My faves from BB:
Baby bee buttermilk lotion: wanginya soft buttermilk; tidak lengket; moisturizing
Orange essence cleanser: really deep cleans without drying
Lip balm: very effective in protecting against sun salt and snow!
satu lagi yang gue demen banget sebenernya lipstiknya, cuma udah discontinued, but if you can find it at a reasonable price, get it! warnanya keren, mayan tahan lama, dan yang paling penting, rasanya enak (lipstik terenak yg pernah gue makan Hidden Content ).
Honey makes the bee world go round
Hidden Content , Jakarta | Sat, 06/23/2007 10:02 AM
Bees have been producing honey from flowering plants for 10 to 20 million years.Honeybees produce beeswax from eight paired glands on the underside of their abdomen.Bees visit over 2,000 flowers and fly over 88,500 km to produce just 450 grams of honey.
The total distance of the many trips honeybees travel to produce half a kilo of honey is about equal to twice the distance around the world.
It would take about 30 grams of honey to fuel a bee's flight around the world.
The average worker honeybee makes half a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
A honeybee visits 50 to 100 flowers during one collection trip.
In a beehive, only 42.5 grams of wax are used to build a comb that will hold two kilos of honey.
For every tablespoonful of honey we eat, a single bee has to collect nectar from 2,000 flowers. Half a kilo represents about two million flowers.
Honeybees do a dance that alerts other bees where nectar and pollen is located. The dance explains directions and distance. Bees also communicate with pheromones, or chemical substances.Honeybees have shown a preference for yellow and blue flowers.
Bumblebees often live underground, such as in an abandoned mouse hole.
A bumblebee flaps its wings 160 beats per second.
The bumblebee does not lose its sting and die if it uses it, as a honeybee will. It can sting again and again.
Bumblebees do not produce enough honey for commercial use but just a few grams at a time to feed their young.Bumblebees are much less aggressive than honeybees.
Bumblebees are similar to honeybees, in that their colonies are headed by a queen, who is the main egg-layer, and many workers, who are the daughters of the queen, and in that drones (males) are produced during the mating season.
There are usually fewer individuals in a bumblebee colony than in a honeybee colony, and a bumblebee does not use a dance to communicate the location of food to other members of the colony, as their cousin the honeybee does.
Because they live in small nests bumblebees never swarm.
Bumblebees are among the few insects that can control their body temperature. In cold weather, queens and workers can shiver their flight muscles to warm themselves, allowing them to fly and work at lower temperatures than most other insects.In bumblebee hives, the entire colony, except for the queen, dies at the end of each summer. Each year, an entirely new colony of bees must be produced.
Carpenter bees look a great deal like bumble bees, but they can be distinguished by the shiny surface on the top of the abdomen.
Carpenter bees rarely attack painted or varnished wood.
An Australian bee, called a karbi, tortures intruders. If an intruder arrives at the hive entrance, guards grip its limbs in their jaws and immobilize it by stretching its limbs to their full extent for an hour.
Giant hornet workers capture a variety of insects, including bees and yellowjackets, to feed their young. Workers strip back bark from shrubs. As they girdle the branches, they lick the sap from the torn edge.
When female wasps return to the colony after foraging, they may initiate aggressive encounters with males and stuff them head first into empty nest cells. Cornell University researchers who observed the behavior call it ""male-stuffing,"" and believe it contributes to the colony's fitness by making more food available to larvae.
Every night, wasps bite into the stem of a plants, lock their mandibles into position, stretch out at right angles to the stem and, with legs dangling, fall asleep.
