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!
IMG_4320

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

What are your picks for this summer ??

Fragrance of the week : Diptyque Florabellio 

Hello my lovelies:*

Here comes another perfume review 🙂 I’m so  loving Summer in Dubai, because it’s giving me the reason to try some fresh floral-y fragrances which is already my Obsession now..

Diptyque Florabellio 

Description:

Launched in April 2015, The composition of Florabellio opens with refreshing salty breezes of sea air mixed with sea fennel. After the aromatic opening, which cools down and provides a characteristic blend of salt of the sea and the aromatic scent of fennel, the focus lies on the floral heart, intertwining apple blossom petals and osmanthus blossom, which thanks to its characteristically sweet scent reminds us of apricots. An unusual twist in the base notes is added by roasted coffee beans combined with roasted sesame seeds, leaving a seductive trail after the sweet flowers.

Packaging :
Classic curvy transparent bottle, available in 50 ml and 100 ml Eau de Toilette

Notes:
Top Notes : Sea Notes, Sea Salt, Fennel.
Heart Notes : Apple Blossom, Osmanthus.
Base Notes : Roasted Coffee beans, Sesame.
My Thoughts:

Wow after knowing the notes,I was amazed..  it is very marine and aquatic and at the same time warm too😍 On my skin, it smells a bit sweet at first,it does have a little feel of roasted coffee in the beginning but that fades away quickly and Apple blossom and strong fennel  takes its place 😍 
OMG guys this perfume is perfect for summery days. An incredibly simple composition with high quality!!! Also, I think this could also be a great mix/ layering scents.

The sillage is relatively soft and the longevity is at least 5-6 hours. I love love love Diptyque Florabellio , quite flattering and affordable as a salty floral fragrance. It would complement a sunny summer day very well.

There are wide range of Diptyque fragrances in the market to choose from.  So, Do not forget to stop by the store and have a sniff of Diptyque Florabellio 🙂  

Ratings : 5/5

Price :
50 ML- 365 AED
100 ML – 475 AED

AVAILABLE AT THE DUBAI MALL (FRIST FLOOR)

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.
Overall, Its a must have for me, & I definitely recommend it !!

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

How I use Coconut oil in my Beauty Routine 

Hey Beautiful  girls,

I hope you all are shining😍

First of all, so SORRY for being MIA I’ve been so busy & ( lazy )  for the past couple of weeks & but now im back with another  post ! Yay

(There are so many websites / blogs that can give you a zillion uses for coconut oil, but I want share with you my personal uses. I religiously use coconut oil and  it works for me )

Im an Oil LOVER , 😍 I spent a lot of time (and $$$) trying out different products, figuring out what would make my skin return to its state of glowing bliss. But Oil’s never disappoint me !! Its the best head to toe treatment &  definitely my HG product that i can’t leave without ❤️

Here are some of my daily uses of – coconut oil

Massage : Vigorously rub the oil between my palms to warm it up. Gently apply the oil to my face in a circular motion. ( not  rubbing it too hard) for 30-60 seconds. It will make your skin soft and reduce the appearance of wrinkles

Hair oil : Are you looking for shiny,healthy,long hair ?? Then Coconut oil is for you , apply a little amount of oil 1 hour before shampooing (daily) !! And see the difference by yourself

Makeup remover: Its gentle on skin and natural ❤️I use a cotton ball and a little coconut oil to remove it. Works better than anything else, hands down.

Body lotion: After the shower, I rub coconut oil all over my body— it feels and smells amazing😍

Mouthwash : oil pulling the latest craze, The benefits are outstanding :

(-Whiter teeth –Cavity and gingivitis prevention -Better breath (halitosis suffers also reported greatly improved morning breath) -Stronger teeth and gums – Less jaw pain (TMJ sufferers noted great improvement), sleep problems and sinus issues – Alleviation of headaches, hangovers and skin issues (reports have shown improvement in acne, psoriasis and eczema) Its known for it strong antibacterial properties)

How to use : its very easy take a tablespoon of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 20 minutes.after 20 minutes spit the oil up!

Moisturize : I always apply oil(s) after the skin has been freshly washed or splashed with water,I would choose oil instead of a moisturizer to calm, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin faster and without possible irritation. 

*I recommend to use extra virgin / organic coconut oil to see more difference

Coconut oil – It’s been around for centuries and has become increasingly more mainstream these days! What about you ?How do you care for your skin??
