The Body Shop Vitamin E Oil

I have overly oily skin, so I abhor products like heavy oils which clog my face. It is quite hard to find a perfect balance of hydration and comfort within oils and the best one I have found till now, is the Vitamin E Serum in Oil from The Body Shop. I discovered it while… Continue reading The Body Shop Vitamin E Oil

The Sheer Kiss Lip Oil Magic by Elizabeth Arden.

Elizabeth Arden for me was such a mom brand because my mother had their skincare and perfumes. But that's not to say that it's a bad brand and I have started to appreciate them a bit more. Especially now that I have used and tested their Sheer Kiss lip oils. The weather in Abu Dhabi… Continue reading The Sheer Kiss Lip Oil Magic by Elizabeth Arden.

Sephora’s Charcoal Exfoliating Cleanser

You when you have oily skin, or even combination - you tend to get lured into those oil control, acne fighting face wash thingies which leave your face all tight, dry and uncomfortable. So I have shifted to creamy face washes which cleanse, but are gentle on the face. Sephora just launched a selection of… Continue reading Sephora’s Charcoal Exfoliating Cleanser

Liquid Gold Necessities…

In January, I started using Glycolic acids (chemical exfoliants meant to dissolve the dead top skin layer and increase cell turnover) to help my skin remain plump and firm. Manual scrubbing hasn't been working out for me anymore; the redness and soreness can attest to that- no matter how gentle I have been. My favourite… Continue reading Liquid Gold Necessities…

Glamglow Masking Set

It is summer and the time to put extra sunscreen on! Also, it is fasting season here in Abu Dhabi courtesy the Holy month of Ramadan. Hence, makeup has been on a minimum. What has been on a maximum, are masks. Specifically masks which brighten, clean, firm and so on. And since Glamglow masks are… Continue reading Glamglow Masking Set

Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser

A cleanser from Omorovicza Budapest, famous for its Queen of Hungary mist- it sounds so exotic and luxurious as a brand, but it is fairly expensive price wise. For me, I prefer samples of cleansers because within a few uses you can get to know if they suit you or not. Hence, the sample of… Continue reading Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser

Quench the Thirst with Origins

I had gone to the Global Village festival here in Dubai yesterday with the family. It was a really beautiful drive till there, and I had an absolutely amazing time. If you ignore my sunburn, that is. It happened when we were waiting for the park to open and the only place to sit was… Continue reading Quench the Thirst with Origins

Lush Dark Angels..

... is quite devilish per se. I used to love Lush as a brand. Their bar shampoos were my jam; Roots and Fresh Masks are still my favourites if you ask- but their ingredients sort of put me off. So I got two masks from Lush recently to try and rekindle the love. The Dark… Continue reading Lush Dark Angels..

Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser

I got this little sample (which lasted about 4 uses) from Cult Beauty with my last order. I am kind of paranoid about face cleansing because my skin is weird with certain products and ingredients. So,when I hear about natural face washes I really want to give them a go as they usually suit me… Continue reading Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser
