Don't think Indonesia has any good skincare products. Usually just buy Indonesian prepacked sauces, kueh kueh (must eat upon arrival) or modern batik scarves/shawls/shirts/pouches or handbags. Their aromatherapy products aren't that great. Can buy Balinese home accessories in one's heading to Bali.

hate to say this but... sanitary pads are very cheap in indonesia. for some brands, it is 1/4 of the price in SG. but must go to the supermarkets that cater to locals, not expats/tourists.

bandung factory outlets have quite nice and affordable clothes too.
