Filorga Skin Absolute Anti-ageing Night Cream

#BeautyCrush: Filorga Skin Absolute Anti-ageing Night Cream

I think I may have just found THE ultimate night cream!! And believe I’ve tried quite a few…. but this one is something else.

The Filorga Skin Absolute Anti-ageing Night Cream was developed by French skin ageing specialist, Filorga,  a leading provider of anti-ageing solutions for medical practices and general consumers. They must know their drill so sounds good to me!

The claim:

Skin Absolute in an elegant packaging is powered by the brown seaweed and the meteorite extract which gives the night cream a unique black lacquered texture and is clinically proven to deliver remarkable results after 45 nights. To facilitate the anti-ageing process, the botox-like active ingredient penetrates beneath the skin surface and work continuously through the night to relax facial muscles that results in smoother and tighter skin overtime.

Well listen, I’m no expert BUT, to have tried it for now about 2 months, I can tell you that I love it! I apply it directly after washing and drying my skin (no serum) and usually wake up to a very smooth, relaxed canvas. I don’t really suffer from deep wrinkles (yet!) but it does even out the little dehydration lines I usually get on my forehead.

Plus the packing is super luxurious and the cream smells delicious! Oh and yes, it is black! Not that you’d see it once it’s applied but I just think it’s so cool 😉

Filigree skin care products can be found online at basharacare.com.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

#FashionCrush: That C.Nicol ‘Pippa’ Oversized Clutch

Happy Sunday everybody!

Today’s post is an outfit I wore last week to a work event and one I felt I looked good in. Now the star of the show here is my new C.Nicol Pippa oversized clutch bag which I absolutely adore! C.Nicol is an uber cool up & coming British accessories designer (and friend!) and I’m so pleased to be one of the first ones to be sporting one of her bags.

I love everything about that clutch. The colour which just adds that pop of colour to any outfits. It’s big enough to carry a notebook/Ipad/everyday essentials. Looks SO chic and sophisticated yet is still quirky.

Check out C.Nicol‘s Facebook page here.

Beach Holiday Essentials

#BeautyCrush: Pool/Beach Essentials

Summer’s here! Yay! Well for those of us lucky enough to live in the UAE it’s kind of been Summer since… well… October really. But still, Summer Holidays are fast approaching and your truly is going to … wait for it… BALI!!! YAY! OMG I cannot tell you how excited I am!

I’ve been preparing for this for weeks (yeah I’m psycho like that) and so as I laid out my beach essentials, I thought I’d share what I will be packing!

Here we go:

1. A beach bag. Sparkly of course. This one’s from Accessories

2. A beach towel. This one is from Kiwi St Tropez and is huge. Perfect

3. Bikini! I’m packing 2 or them. Both from New Look. I’ve packed them in this cute little pouch from New Look too

4. Sunscreen. 1 x SPF 100 from Bioderma, 1 x SPF 30 from Superdrug, 1 x SPF50 from Bioderma (Eyes) and another SPF30 from Bioderma (face)

5. Anti-bacterial hand gel from Bath & Body Works

6. A pocket mirror. Got this cute little one from a boutique in France.

All these stored in a plastic pouch from Aldo.

Voila!  White sandy beach here I come.

#FashionCrush: Armani Exchange Summer 2015 Collection

You know what? I never went into an Armani Exchange store. Nope. Never. I’m not really sure why. I guess I never thought their style was mine. Well, looking at the look book for their new Summer 2015 Collection, I must put both of my hands up and admit that I was completely wrong. Yeah, that happens too! Not too often so don’t get used it 😉

When I was sent news & images of the new collection I almost dismissed it and filed the email under ‘Other brands’. But then I got my uber cool, bright coral Armani Exchange tote bag (here) and I thought I’d give it a chance. To my surprise I discovered a really chic, effortless and clean style. I am now a complete convert and in fact cannot wait to go check out their store in Dubai Mall!
