The Key to Radiance.. (My Skincare)

Yes yes, I have been gone for a while, we’ll just hug and move on...

For the past year I have been trying a lot of skin cleansers, moisturizers, and just a lot of skin care products until I stuck to a couple of products that I think are the best for my skin, yes they are amazing!!

How do I know that?

Well I do get a lot of questions about what foundation I use when I don’t have any foundation on, plus you just notice when your face is all clear and as soft as a baby’s bottom – are babies bottoms that soft though LOL- anyway, so I thought why not share with the world what I do and the products I use ..

Before we start keep in mind that I used to have some problems with my skin, a lot of breakouts, some pigmentation, and dark spots.

Now my skin is normal, doesn’t get oily fast, and doesn’t get any dry patches, and no pigmentation what so ever. But I do get those pesky breakouts once in a while if I don’t control them.

First and foremost, YOU HAVE TO REMOVE YOUR MAKE UP BEFORE GOING TO BED!! Or else you’re just going to trap oil and sweat under a layer of foundation, bronzer, and blush!!

Tip: Try reducing the use of wet wipes, as they harm your skin in the long run, they are very harsh and may damage your skin.

Tip: Drink water, keep your skin hydrated especially during summer!!

o Removing my eye makeup: using BioDerma H2O

o  Removing my face makeup: I Choose the cleanser I want to use that night, and that depends on my makeup or my skin condition.

1-  Alba botanica Good&Clean daily detox foaming cleanser.

2-  Dr.Jart+ Black label detox O2 cleansing foam

I squeeze a dab on my Clarasonic Mia 2, and I start with my cheeks then move on to my T zone – Do your own thing here.

o Deep Cleansing: this time I choose a deeper cleanser to get into those pores and get all the oils out.

1-  First aid beauty Facial radiance polish
2-  Origins checks and balances frothy face wash
3- Laura Mercier Flawless skin face polish

o Toning the face: I always use a toner after I've cleansed because it restores the natural oils that the cleanser stripped off of your face, my go to is the First aid beauty facial radiance pads

o Spray: Nature girl’s IMMORTELLE MIST which is rose water

o Moisturizing: last step before bed is moisturizing the face using my Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins, I massage the product onto my face and neck.

o MaskTwice a week I use the mask of magnaminty from LUSH. It is heaven for the skin, it opens up the pores and cleanses the face 100% leaving it fresh and spotless.

And Voilà, it may sound like a long process but in truth it all takes less than 5 minutes!!

And what’s 5 minutes to having beautiful clear skin, guys-I’ll just assume guys read my blog though I doubt it but if you are a guy than I'm high fiving you right now- and girls your skin is worth it, don’t suffer from dry skin, acne and dark spots and wish for them to disappear, GO MAKE THEM DISSAPEAR!!

Until next time Mon amours

well since Eid is coming very soon and I know a lot of you LOVE taking their pictures professionally, I have found a place that takes beautiful mesmerizing photos, Vyu Studios boasts a fully outfitted studio in the heart of Riffa.

The founders drew their inspiration from an unsatisfactory experience with international, as well as local, photographers, and wanted to provide a service that was reliable, trustworthy and high quality.

“Our vision is to enhance the photography business in the Kingdom through usage of advanced technology, a staff that enjoys a high quality of service and an eye for capturing the good times in a special occasion, to keep as a visual memory for years to come” Said one of the founders during a visit to their studio.

Vyu Studios specializes in weddings, engagement, as well as Henna parties. It’s qualified staff is trained to start coverage as soon as wedding preparations begin, covering every minor detail, reflecting the luxury and thinking out of the box for creative angles. However, this does not stop the ambitious founders from widening the range of expertise to cover other events such as launching events, birthdays and collaborate with local initiatives, such as fashion designer Reem Buqais, for The Bow Tie Project, as well as local designer by Farah and international food chain Vapiano.

The Lip Product Addict Tag ..

Ciao my bellas,,

Today I am here with a short “Hopefully” post all about Lip products, a while back Essie Button and Amelia Liana Created “ The Lip ProductAddict “ Tag, there are 8 Question to answer all about lip product, which for me is perfect as I am a lip product addict, so lets get to it...

1.   Favorite balm/treatment?

I have two that are my holy grail of lip treatments, The “NUXE” lip balm and Dr. Lipp “Original Nipple Balm For Lips” both are miracle workers!!

2. Best eye-catching red?

NYX “Perfect Red” it’s truly perfect, matte and doesn’t budge all day, it’s very true to color and very eye catching.

3. Best luxury & best drugstore?

Is NARS a luxury? Oh well I would say all my NARS lipsticks, they are just perfect, the pigmentation is amazing and the product its self is very moisturizing, doesn’t dry my lips and stays on for a long time.

I do LOVE drugstore lipsticks and I've recently tried the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms and wow they are good, they do have this sort of minty smell and plump the lips a bit.

4. Best MAC lipstick?

Oh this is a hard one, you know I love me some MAC lipsticks I mean I only own 40 of them!! But I am going to cheat and choose 2 of them.

First is my favorite since I got it which is “Heroine” it is one of the most beautiful true violets I have ever seen, and its in my favorite finish which is the Matte finish.

Please me" is one of my favorite nude pink lipsticks, I love this when I don’t know what color to choose I go for this one, when you go through 3 tubes of a lipstick you know it’s a favorite of yours I guess!

5. The most disappointing?

I would have to say the YSL “Rouge Volupte” I didn’t like the application of the product, its too creamy, and drying, moved everywhere, plus it felt a bit sandy if that makes sense!

6. Liner - yes or no?

Mostly No, I prefer having a softer edge than a pristine sharp edge.

7. Best gloss?

The Maybelline Elixirs, oh my god, perfect perfect perfect!!! My favorite is “Vision In Violet”.

8. Something extra!

I decided I would name my top three bright pink lipsticks, as I am a big fan of neon pink lipsticks.

NARS “SCHIAP” a true hot pink, very easy to apply.

MAC “Flat Out Fabulous” a violet sort of pink with a Matte finish.

MAC “Candy Yum-Yum” a very neon pink with a Matte finish.

Are you a lip product addict too?,

What are your favourite products?
