Summer Proof Skin With ELEMIS

Hey Everyone ! I am officially back in Dubai and thrown into the deep end with mommy duties, catching up on emails, attending events and back to back makeup appts.  I had visited Boracay Islands in the Philippines just before coming back to Dubai. Some much needed Vitamin Sea finally came my way ! Despite all the sunblock, my face managed to get some color in aka RED !  It was only a matter of time before my forehead started peeling and flaking. Luckily, I had some rescue remedies from Elemis waiting for me on my bathroom counter. For the past two weeks, I’ve been using the Elemis Pro Collage Marine Cream with SPF 30 religiously in the mornings. For nightly rituals, I have been generously lathering on the Elemis Pro Collagen  Oxygenating Night cream. And for the days I felt like I needed some extra pampering, I’d reach out for the Pro Definition Facial Oil by Elemis. Flaking,…

This Ramadan’s Current Night Skincare Routine

Hey Lovelies ! Yes, I’m back and this time I’ll be getting into more details about my night skincare routine. I wanted to post this particularly in Ramadan because OMG the lack of water has totally changed my skin, even if it’s just been a few days. 

Top 5 Nutritional Facial Oils That Your Skin Will Love

After hitting 35 last year, the realization sank in that the BIG 40 is upon me very very soon. So I decided to take my skincare regimen to the next level.  As someone that has exceptionally dry skin and a slight T-zone,  I’ve had to invest in more than the typical $60+ night cream to do the trick. From trying out countless samples and products based on recommendations, I’ve narrowed down my search  to these 5 nutritional facial oils.

Bliss Instant Radiance Oxygen Facial at Sensasia Spa

As a self professed beauty addict with a bathroom counter filled with the most sought after skincare products, it’s a no brainer that you still need to visit your favorite spa every now and then to give your skin some much needed pampering and loving. Mine happens to be the Sensasia Spa ! I heard so much about their Bliss facial treatments that I decided to try out the Bliss Instant Radiance Oxygen Facial at their Palm Jumeirah branch. I couldn’t get over how my skin looked after I left the spa.

Alterna X Glambox

A week and a half ago, I was invited to the Chill Salon in Dubai Media City where they had partnered up with Glambox and Alterna Hair products. First off, let me just say that I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Alterna products for over a year now. Especially since I’ve heard so much about them and how almost all of Hollywood’s finest have been raving about how amazing their products are. Little did I know that this whole time they were being stocked in Dubai !

Steven Klein’s Collab For Nars

When a creative genius like Steven Klein does a collaboration with one of the most artistic makeup brands, you have no choice but to take notice. Steven Klein for NARS was a collection I simply could not miss out on.

LAURA MERCIER FLAWLESS CONTOURING PALETTE

Contour has been all the rage ever since we saw how drastically it changed the faces of the Kardashians. It’s almost blasphemy if you don’t own at least one contour palette. I was super excited to receive the Laura Mercier Contour palette and wanted to make sure it was worthy enough to add into my makeup kit.

Introduction to Burberry’s Makeup Line

Iconic British fashion brand Burberry has recently joined fellow counterparts like D&G, Gucci and Marc Jacobs by creating a beauty line as an extension of their brand. I’m usually quite skeptical when designer brands merge into the beauty industry. I find that the average consumers are usually attracted to designer makeup lines particularly for the packaging as opposed to the actual versatility and longevity of the products.
