10850813_10204422411972739_2038550874_n

If you’ve never used ❤ olive oil ❤ as part of your beauty regimen, you’re in for a real treat. It is rich in squalane, a natural emollient that is great for your #nails, lips,hair, and skin. In addition, it is packed with  Vitamins A & E and polyphenols that make it popular in many prepackaged beauty products. You can use it at home as part of your routine to:

~Deep condition your hair: Weekly, give hair and scalp a massage with slightly heated olive oil applied liberally. Comb through hair and let set for at least an hour or two. Shampoo hair to remove oil and thoroughly rinse. This will leave you with unbeatable shine and healthier looking hair with fewer split ends.

~Substitute for daily hair conditioner: A small amount of olive oil applied after shampooing can be substituted for hair conditioner. Apply a small drop into your palm & then rub both hands together & then apply it to dry hair.

~Remove makeup: Using a cotton swab, dab a bit under your eyes, on your cheeks and forehead, then wipe with a damp cloth. Finish by using a gentle cleanser. Your skin will be soft and smooth. Olive oil is a great option for those with sensitive skin.

~Soft Lips :Just dab on your finger and smear to relieve dry and chapped lips

~Soften dry and cracked feet: A little extra virgin olive oil makes a fabulous

~Replace shaving cream:Do you have sensitive skin? Be gentle with your legs by using olive oil as a shaving cream. Olive oil is a safe and organic alternative for shaving foam and results in a close shave that is less expensive and leaves your legs feeling silky and smooth.

~Use as a massage oil: You can create a mixture of organic oils: extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, in equal parts along with a small amount of jojoba or almond oil and vitamin E as a preservative that keeps your skin smooth and soft.

~Get healthy skin:Olive oil is a great skin moisturizer, in part because it contains linoleic acid, a compound not made by the body, but which prevents water from evaporating. It also contains a polyphenols hydroxytyrosol, an antioxidant that reinforces cell walls and reduces signs of aging..Splash your face with water before applying.

~Clean makeup brushes:Mix olive oil with a tsp of dishwashing liquid. Rub a small amount on the brush and wipe the brush back and forth on the palm of your hand, then rinse.

~ Body exfoliant: Mix 1 cup sweet almond oil with 1 cup salt (Epsom salts, fine or coarse sea salt, brown sugar etc.). Add a few drops of essential oil. After a shower, rub some of it over your body for a stimulating exfoliation.

~Anti Wrinkle for undereye: Apply some olive oil on your under-eye skin and massage it gently. Leave overnight and wakeup with soft hydrated eyes

New Sensai cellular performance Day Cream-  SPF 25 

ABOUT SENSAI CELLULAR PERFORMANCE DAY CREAM

SENSAI’s CELLULAR PERFORMANCE DAY CREAM is designed to prevent oxidation in the skin’s cells with green tea extract which is claimed to protect the skin from stress with yeast extract and white mustard seed extract, both of which help preserve the levels of ‘stress-defence protein’ that naturally exists in the skin’s cells.

A feather-light comforting cream with UV-protection for defence against skin-ageing factors. The zesty fragrance elevates the spirit every day.

Apply each morning as step 2 of Double Moisturising.

Sensai beauty products are quite famous and yes expensive , their key ingredient is what make it luxuries and that is premium Koishimaru Silk extract

It also contains :

  • White Mustard Seed extract which are indeed very rich in phyto-nutrients, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants
  • Green Tea Extract, a powerful anti-oxidant

I was very excited to try out their day cream Which has spf 25 , good 2 in 1 product it does the trick,I really like the texture of it, It went on smoothly and gave a little dewey look to my face (not greasy ) and within a few minutes had completely sunk into my skin.
The cream is very light which makes my face feel & look healthy. It smelt amazing on application, but not so strong Its a  light peach (not white) cream that sinks into skin easily & Absorbs very well. I wear this under my foundation sometimes and it doesn’t seem to interfere with the look of it.

Performance wise I cannot say enough good things about this moisturiser. After using it for about 2 weeks I noticed a definite improvement in the tone and texture of my skin. The dry patches are no longer a problem for me!
Im not sure wether oily skin people might like this, it’s not going to work the same exact way for everyone as its working for my skin ,

So I recommend doing a patch test before you buy this products ❤️
Overall I rate this cream a 8/10

Available in a 50ml tube at AED 540 ( Paris Gallery )

Molton Brown – Rose Absolute Collection

Molton Brown, London’s fragrance experts, unmask their dramatic new floral collection, Rosa Absolute.

An intriguingly voluptuous, classic Italian red rose extracted in its purest, most concentrated form. 

The new collection is inspired by the ancient Italian tradition of sub rosa signifying secrecy, where roses were painted on the ceilings of banquet rooms as a reminder that words spoken should remain confidential.

The story behind the fragrance and campaign brings this secrecy to life through the mysterious paintings of Lombardia’s Late Renaissance period with their deep hues and hidden symbolism. 

“Rosa Absolute holds the secrets of a darkly  luxuriant red rose,” describes creator Nathalie Koobus of Fragrances Essentielles. “Blackcurrant, raspberry and strawberry evoke a rich magenta shade; spiced up by red berries, cinnamon and clove. Intoxicating rose absolute and violet leaf unfold into an accord of cedarwood, patchouli and sandalwood.
The potency of patchouli and labdanum give a long-lasting finish. Intensely alluring and full of opulence.” 
To celebrate this impassioned fragrance, 

Molton Brown, supplier of toiletries to Her Majesty the Queen, are proudly displaying 
the Royal Arms for the first time in polished 
silver ink on their bottles, making this collection a truly luxurious indulgence.

Rosa absolute is my new obsession, LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS ,If you are someone who loves deep passionate , musky rose and sensual scent than this one is definitely for you !!

Both Shower Gel & Body Lotion is Moisturizing and very Luxurious to use , Its like you are surrounded with Bouquets of fresh roses or a bath tub covered with rose petals..

   Ahhhhhhhhhhh-mazing 

I find it very gentle for the skin and very hydrating as it contains rose oil and other awesome ingredients ..

Smells so fresh , Beautiful & uplifting.
It really calms & soothes my soul , I’m addicted to Rosa Absolute and I do recommend this to everyone

Lathers easily in a rich foam while the scent lingers on the skin gorgeously!! ( cleanses well too )
Although they’re a bit expensive but They are superb quality with long lasting alluring scent and hydration!

Overall, Im hooked,It keeps my skin well hydrated and away from dryness..
And ofcourse it Smells DIVINE ………………

It is perfect for the mornings or the evening
Or for the days you want to feel sexy ! 😉

Review : Lush BIG Shampoo

Lush BIG Shampoo  


About the product :- 

A volumising shampoo made with seaweed and sea salt. While the salt lifts the hair and adds body, it also softens the hair alongside extra virgin coconut oil and protein-rich toothed wrack seaweed. Lemon and lime allow the hair to shine as they allow the cuticles on your hair to lie flat, meaning they reflect more light.

How to use :-

Use a small amount on wet hair and work it in well to build lather. Rinse !! Follow up with a LUSH conditioner for soft tresses

Ingredients :-

Sea salt, coarse, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, lemon infusion, fresh, organic, seawater, fresh, Seaweed Infusion, sawn sea oak, Lauryl betaine, Lime juice, fresh, organic, coconut oil, extra virgin, Neroli essential oil, Mandarin essential oil, Fair Trade vanilla absolute, orange blossom absolute, * Limonene, methyl ionone, perfume.
* Naturally occurring in essential oils.

My thoughts :-

Lush big shampoo is one of the lush’s popular & much raved product , suitable for all hair! Its a very special shampoo, as it contains sea salt, seaweed and lemon, which allow you to thoroughly clean your hair without weakening it.

People with fine hair swears by it , so I gave it a try & im glad to say that it really does what it says !

I love the smell, very relaxing & mild neroli & citrus , that lasts foreverrrrrrr ( One of the reason why I love lush is b’coz of their smell )
it definitely gave my fine hair lots of volume but at the same time it was balanced and bouncy.

As well as being a volumising shampoo, this shampoo is a clarifying one too.
I would not recommend to use this on a daily basis because my scalp became slightly dry/itchy ( possibly due to the sea salt in this product)

So I consider it as a weekly pampering treatment for your hair 🙂

Sea salt is also full of minerals & de-greases hair , removing dead skin cels & dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh , squeaky clean feeling. Sea salt with seaweed infusion balanced with extra virgin coconut oil & avocado butter for soft nourished locks. & finally fress citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine. It’s no wonder this one is a best seller !!

This shampoo can be found in the Lush shops and Lush website

Price:- AED 137/330g

What do you think? Have you ever tried it !

Much LOVE
Zeee💋

 

SkinCare Review – Izil 3 Fruits Youth Generating Cream

Izil 3 Fruits Youth Generating Cream
So today’s review is going to be about yet another “Amazing” skincare product

I have become a huge fan of Izil skincare products lately. I Love their multipurpose Argan oil too (which I’ll review soon) LOL
None of their products has let me down so far and I am glad that whatever I’ve reviewed has been liked by you all.

Product detail :- 

Formulated with 3 key powerful oils (Barbary Fig, Apricot and Argan Oils), the “3 Fruits” Youth Generating Cream improves overall skin texture, firmness and radiance while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

It contains Barbary Fig seed oil, which has extraordinary anti-ageing and anti-oxidant powers to stop the ageing of cells, stimulate their renewal, improve skin elasticity and help protect against free radicals.

Argan and Apricot oils further enhance this cream by moisturizing and softening the skin thanks to their richness in Vitamins A, E, and essential fatty acids. They help skin retain its elasticity and suppleness.

Your skin has a youthful boost: lines and wrinkles are reduced, firmness is improved, and hydration is dramatically restored.

1. Improves overall skin texture and radiance
2. Dramatically restores hydration
3. Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles
4. Improves skin firmness
5. Helps skin retain its elasticity and suppleness.
6. Unifies skin tone, whitenes skin and improves its darifty
7. Soothes skin imitations

Directions :- 

Apply a pea sized amount on your palm and apply on face in upward strokes from chin to cheeks. Apply on neck in upward strokes from base of neck to jawline.

My thoughts :- 

it’s been a month now trying this product & I’m absolutely happy with the result 😍
The first thing I noticed was the pleasant fragrance of this cream which is very refreshing and long-lasting.


It’s like a heavy cream in texture , but goes on silky smooth and melts into my skin, however It doesn’t feel greasy and gives a “Matte finish” . Yes, You heard me right I was surprised tooo
It soaked in very well and the Matte look did not bother my super dry skin ,
Though,I did not see any drastic difference on my wrinkles
But YES my face is much brighter, Even & supple now.

The best thing about this cream – unlike a cold cream – is that it completely absorbs into your skin without leaving a film.
• it can also be used as a nice makeup base!!

Overall, this cream has proven to be very good. I think that it has made my dry skin feel soft and smooth with no greasy effect. A big YAY for that
It’s definitely a Must have face cream for me ATM

When FACEMasks Special Package – Review

I found the cuts in the mask were helpful to make sure it was in contact with as much of my skin as possible.

Its officially  “my time” home pamper session..

This is a great product for summer /winter Basically for every skin type!!
They all have different kinda smell to it but guys trust me the scent really had nothing to do with it’s amazing hydrating properties.
