Drugstore Product : Neutrogena – Cleanse And Protect

Summer care with Neutrogena – Cleanse And Protect ❤️

Summer is officially here! You can feel it on your skin, as soon as you step outside. And whilst you’re looking forward to fun and games on the beach, the heat and humidity cancause havoc: enlarged pores, oily skin, breakouts, brown spots, parched lips
If this sounds all too familiar, you’ll be glad to know that Neutrogena has a few hard working products to keep your skin clean, cool and protected.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine Daily Wash

The Problem:
Shiny, greasy, oily skin? The source of the problem is the sebaceous gland which produces sebum – a combination of fats and dead cells. The sebum reaches to the skin surface through pores, and when it is in excess, it causes trouble, blocking pores and setting off acne breakouts.
The Solution:
Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine Daily Wash and Daily Scrub, a double action product range that tackles pores and shine in one go. Its formulation contains micro-beads and salicylic acid which unclog and minimize pores’ size. It is clinically proven to immediately remove 77% of excess sebum, providing a lasting matte finish without over-drying the skin. What’s more, the uplifting tangerine and lime scent, which will make your new cleansing routine a joy this summer!

My thoughts :-
These days my skin feels so dull & dry due to dehydration.
I have been using this cleanser daily for a week now and I really like the fresh citrus smell its so refreshing and gentle on my sensitive skin yet super cleansing, removes all trace of makeup. & doesn’t dry my skin out .. AHMAZING 💗
Price :- 44. 86 AED

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen

The Problem:
brown spots and pigmentation. The harmful ultra-violet radiation from sunlight is the main culprit in causing pigmentation, wrinkles and the overall accelerated aging of our skin.
The Solution:
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen, a powerful (30, 45 and 55) and completely photostable SPF. It contains zinc oxide with the broadest spectrum UVA and UVB reflector. It is also water-resistant, ultra-light, shine-free, PABA free and non-comedogenic too. Show you really care about your skin and apply SPF daily!

My thoughts :-
Well, I’m not a sunscreen fan, maybe b’coz i have a very dry and sensitive skin.. But I always heard a good reviews on neutrogena ulta sheer dry touch-screen.& I got a chance to try it

Texture wise its like a normal cream or lotion, which disappears immediately once applied . I FELT Little sting when i was spreading all over my face but after few minutes it was gone 😐
Im not sure if i like it or no !! But detailed review will be up soon
Price :67.82 AED

Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Lip Care

The Problem:
Dry, parched lips. We always seem to forget to protect the lips, and because they are the most delicate part of our face, we’re plagued by dry and chapped lips.
The Solution:
Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Lip Care, a moisture-enriched balm that nourishes and protects your lips, keeping them healthy-looking and soft. Keep it handy and apply frequently throughout the day.

My thoughts :-
This product is beyond amazing ❤️ its like a miracle for chapped dry lips, I personally love love love lip balms, but when i first received neutrogena lipcare i was damn excited so I gave it a try and HELLO!! I LOVE YOU BOY 💋
This stuff works like a charm, keeps my lips from drying out for hours & hours and I can wear it under my lipstick. I’m glad to have found a winner and one I can recommend to you all ❤️

Price : 17 AED

Mini Review / Swatches : Rimmel London SS15 Lipsticks 

This season I’ll be adding two of my favorite drugstore brand lipsticks to my go-to list

Rimmel london 
As the temperature rises, lips go brilliantly bright.

Rimmel introduces its new Kate Bright SS15 Collection for lips, an exotic palette of precious shades created by the style icon herself, Kate Moss.

My Thoughts:-

Two Flattering lipstick shades

Nice change for spring and summer, moving away from the reds I’ve worn this past winter.

Both lipsticks are satin finish which means it is neither matte or too creamy
Kate Moss : #35

The color is cool toned pink with a tiny hue of lavender, kinda pastel pink
      

Kate Moss : #37

I must say this color totally caught my eye
Its orangy-coral 😁 

really flattering shade for every skintone ❤️

Overall,

I love the Rimmel london Lasting finish lipsticks by Kate Moss, I have almost all the colors from her collection..Both #35 & #37 goes well with loads of different make-up looks Day or night

it smells so good & the creamy formula feels comfortable on lips,
Perfect bright and fresh colors great for summer.

and if you want to be a bit more creative add a pop of orangy-coral to the centre of a pink lips 💋

Mini Review : Olay Regenerist  Advanced Cleansing System

Hello lovies :*
I’m sure you’ve heard of the Olay face cleansing brush !

I’ve been using it like crazy ..

Details 

4 professionally designed features:

  • 2 speed, rotating system delivers daily deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation
  • Water-resistant for use in the shower
  • Soft replaceable brush head gentle on the skin
  • Exfoliating cleanser professionally designed to purify and renew skin’s texture for refreshed, smooth skin System includes:
    1) 2-speed facial cleansing brush
    2) Soft bristle replaceable brush head.
 
How it works
Cleansing brushes work to remove impurities, stimulates circulation, cleans deep pores and most importantly slough off dead skin cells. You’ll find the difference after a few use
How to use :
It is simple, first I remove the majority of my make up with eye make up remover , then, add the cleanser to wet brush bristles and then work in a gentle circular motion on my damp face without really applying pressure

 My thoughts:
I’ve used it religiously with Olay Regenerist cleanser for 60 seconds and It really helps keep my skin clear and soft. I get compliments on my skin all the time. I think it helps my makeup look smoother too. I have nothing negative to say about it at all! 
And I think it does a great job,

 I love the smoothness my face constantly feels
It has made a huge difference in my skin and is so worth the price
It’s the perfect pick-me-up!
 
Make sure you rinse all make up and soap residue out of the bristles and foam to dry the attachments.

IMG_1071
Im obsessed with this perfume ❤️ LOVE it….
This is the most elegant feel good feminine scent I have ever worn. I simply can’t get enough of it. 
The dry-down is actually very pleasant,
and that is high praise from me, as I love that scent as well. It also has something musky about it that I dig😍
 
Longevity is insane The sillage is just the way I like it, it lasts until I wash it off the next day  , getting nice pleasant tastes if you will throughout the entire day. This is an example of a high quality eau de parfum – heaven!
 
I do see it more on the masculine side but 
There is something Classic about this perfume
Once this baby dries down it turns into 
almost playful floral scent with hints of sultry 
 
Its perfect fragrance for both day and night, work and play. Versatile enough to wear year round. ❤️

Laura Mercier SS’15 – Review/Swatches

Hey Glamies

I am absolutely bowled over by this beautifully simple yet impactful ss15 collection by Laura mercier 


Foundation :


Laura mercier is well known for her “Flawless Face” concept 

I was glad to try her Silk Crème moisturizing Photo Edition foundation

These days my face needs more than sheer coverage. I have some acne scars and areas where  I need medium to full coverage, but I still want something that looks natural. The new Photo edition foundation  offers medium to full coverage that looks like skin.

It blends in flawlessly with my skin. It has a thin fluid texture but isn’t too runny as long as you shake the tube properly before use. It easily covers dark spots and uneven areas quite well while still looking natural and luminous,

I’ve been using the fingers to apply or a damp sponge and the coverage is quite nice,it photographs well with a flash too

Lasting power is quite good when set with the Translucent powder, I was able to get 10 to 12 hours of wear

Highlighter :

When it comes to highlighters, I’ve traditionally been very open to all intensities of shimmer and frost.
The Texture is just divine,Its buttery smooth with a finely milled finish. It blends naturally with my skin and to give a gentle glow.

The luxurious rose gold highlighter has the most beautiful  embossed pattern  . You can use it on your cheek or brow bones, the bridge of your nose, collarbone, temples,anywhere you want a subtle gold shimmer highlight. Just use it sparingly for best results!
You guys , if u see this … Grab it immediately!!

Paint wash liquid lip color :

I’m not usually a fan of lip gloss but these babies are something new  , they are demi matte / creamy

Kinda liquid lipstick, highly HIGHLY pigmented…..

Those who are looking for a slightly glossy liquid lipstick will love these. They have a texture similar to that of a liquid lipstick but have a non-drying feel

*Adding more swipes will intensify the color.
All are variations of bright summery colors but still very wearable (even for neutral lip lovers)

Lipstick :
The eight new shades include Lychee Parfait, Rose, Audrey, Crushed Pecan, Milky Way, Praline Cream, Dry Rose and Biscotti.

There’s a hint of peach and Nude in the base to prevent it from looking too pale. BISCOTTI AND ROSE both are neutral enough for my comfort yet have enough color to brighten the face

ROSE is a bright healthy pink on the lips.
they do look flawless on the lips and require no extra tweaking (always a plus).

DRY ROSE is a soft Cranberry color which will rock your lips this spring/summer,
a quick pop of color without trying too hard !!

 Formula is super Moisturizing with a slight glossy finish.

The colors are fresh and brightening and the options this spring are great for both neutral and bright-color lovers alike.

Overall: LOVE! Healthy colors that are fresh  and yet classy & flattering to the skin in a natural way that brightens the complexion.


Do check the Spring/Summer 2015 collection
