It is important to have a solid skin care routine that you follow everyday and works for you and your skin type. This will vary from person to person and is affected by different skin types, age, weather and other environmental influences. Continue reading “My Easy Skin Care Routine”
If you are still doing your holiday shopping, like me, then you will agree that it is not an easy feat. Every year I promise myself that I will finish my holiday shopping before December but I’m in the same exact position every single year. Continue reading “The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide”
Who doesn’t love makeup and beauty products? I know I do. One of the things I am doing this holiday season is putting together my favorite products of all time and gifting this to the ladies in my life.
When it comes to masks I am a hoarder/collector/excessive user. I probably use a mask my face every day, or every other day if I don’t have the time, and I alternate with several masks. I don’t necessarily have many skin concerns, apart from the usual rash here and there, or a hormonal spot or dullness and the main one which is the pursuit of perfect skin all year round. Something that I think is achievable..ok maybe not perfect skin but pretty good skin.
A concealer is one of those products that every girl needs in their beauty bag. It has so many uses in everyday makeup application, if you are about that life. Continue reading “Use Your Concealer Like a Pro”
I am usually willing to pay more on skincare because I have found what works for me and I hardly ever deviate from my skincare routine. So when I saw these products, I was a little hesitant to try them. Continue reading “Affordable Skincare With The Ordinary”
Huda Beauty has been the craze lately and for good reason. There was a queue at sephora both the times I was there and it was just chaos after the launch of her liquid lipsticks. I managed to get one, just one, and I could have lost a nail for it, no kidding. I have used her products before. Continue reading “Review : Huda Beauty Liquid Matte… and more….”
To celebrate the launch of Kat Von D make up line in Sephora Middle East today, I thought it would be great to talk about some of my favorite make up items from the line.
Let me just put it out there that I am a big fan of Kat Von D make up. I absolutely love the quality of their products (all of the ones that I have bought) and the packaging is so gorgeous. I literally nagged my sister to get me these, and eventually converted her in to the world of Kat Von D makeup. She loves them now as well 😉 Continue reading “Kat Von D Beauty”
A couple of weeks ago I went into the mall to pick up some skincare products. My skin was feeling a bit malnourished, so to speak. So I researched on a lot of serums, and narrowed it down to a couple.
The winner is…… Continue reading “My Favorite Estee Lauder Products”
Skin care is a very important part of my life and my daily routine. Over the years I have gone through many not so good skin days, which were horrible, and directly affected my mood and self confidence, and some great skin days, that I loved.
I recall the first time I had like a thousand pimples on my face (ok, maybe an exaggeration) and they kept coming and coming …… and coming. I cried on several occasions because my skin was so painful and my job, at the time, required me wear full make up at all times. And I love make up:-)
I had never had bad skin before so I didn’t know what to do. I remember meeting my sister and all she said was, ‘get ready am taking you to a doctor!’ She meant a dermatologist, lol. Long story short, the doctor told me I had acne…like real acne!! I never ever thought I would ever have acne. And I did. This was the beginning of my passion for skincare.
Since then my skin has cleared, and there isn’t a trace of that horrible time in my life, maybe an occasional pimple here and there, nothing too serious.
Moving on, I have learnt the benefit of taking care of the skin and I would like to share some products that have been good to me over the years:-)
Ps: I have combination skin….
Cleanser – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser , Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
Moisturiser – Estee Lauder DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant & UV Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ( I know the name is long)
Masks – Cinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask
Vitamins & Supplements – New Chapter Every Woman Daily multivitamins and Whole Omega
These are basically my everyday go to products that have saved my skin, potentially my life..
I exfoliate my skin regularly, I like Clarisonic Mia 2 for this and incorporate some anti aging serums (day and night) and more masks depending on how my skin feels. I will be sharing more in future posts.
I drink lots of water, lots and lots of water, skin needs water:-)
