WOMF3

#BeautyCrush: WOMF #3

Hope y’all had an excellent weekend! Mine just flew by really… doesn’t it always! Still, I found time to blog about my current skin care routine and here are the products I’ve been using over the past few weeks including a couple of newbies!

Icon

Eau Precieuse

Now this is one of those cult beauty products which I remember my grand-mother AND my mother using! The Eau Precieuse (Precious Water in English) was in fact created in France back in 1890! This miscellar water is known to fight imperfections & black heads. During my recent holidays at home, I was chatting all things beauty (of course) with my mates and one of them mentioned she was not only still using Eau Precieuse but loving it too. She has fantastic skin so it must work!!

Off I went to my local pharmacy & picked one up. I’ve been using all over my face to remove my make-up & as a pre-wash in the morning and so far, not complaining!

Neutrogena Deep Clean cleansing gel

Yes, I have gone back to my 1st love when it comes to cleanser and been again using my favorite one EVER! I’ve blogged about this amazing face wash a few times already but got to admit it is still the best at removing my make-up and preparing my skin for the rest of my routine.

L’Oreal Eclat Sublime Tonique Clarifiant

I mentioned this toner in one of my ‘French Fancies Beauty Haul‘ posts back from when I was on holidays. I’ve actually been using it for a few weeks now and really like it! It is very fresh and just wakes your skin up in the morning. It contains Vitamin C for an added ‘glowy‘ effect. Not sure you can get this one in the UAE just yet but if you are travelling to Europe I strongly recommend you pick up a bottle!

L’Oreal Sublimist Serum

And another one of my ‘French Fancies‘! I picked up this serum from the new L’Oreal Sublimist range and been using it every morning since then. It is said to give you that ‘perfect skin’ effect and although I can’t see any major difference, I do find it adds a little more ‘glow’ to it if that makes sense? It acts a bit as a primer and smooth out any fine lines or blemishes which then allows my BB cream to just glide onto my skin. Will keep on using it for the next few weeks and report back on any improvements!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen SPF 30

Nothing new here. I am still using AND loving my good old Neutrogena sunscreen. I did try the Clinique one for a few days but really, this one is my favorite one. I just love the fact that the texture is so light and non-greasy and it’s an absolute bargain.

L’Occitane Sublime Beauty Cream

I’ve talked about this one too in the past but really been using it on a regular basis since I went on holidays. Must say, of all the BB creams I have tried, this one is probably my favorite one. The texture is light & sheer but provide excellent coverage. The colour (medium) is just a superb match to my skin tone.

Dermalogica Ultrasmoothing Eye Serum

OK, I am being a little ‘unfaithful’ to my beloved Herbline Essentials Aloe Vera & Honey Under Eye Gel BUT, I do have to try different things don’t I?! I just recently discovered the Dermalogica Ultrasmoothing Eye Serum and been using it for over 2 weeks now. The oil-like texture is pretty amazing actually! It just melts into your under eye skin and kind of smooth it out… I’ve gotta say it is a pretty damn good product! It doesn’t have the ‘refreshing effect’ the Herbline Essentials gel gives but it seems to be excellent at filling up those little lines (damn these!) and makes a perfect primer for your concealer… I can’t really tell which one I prefer, I like them both and will probably use the Herbline Essentials gel in the morning and use the Dermalogica in the evening as it feels a little more ‘nourishing’.

Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub

I started using Lush’s lip scrubs a couple of months ago and absolutely adore the Pop Corn one. I tried the Santa’s Lip Scrub the other day and loved it too! You just rub it onto your lips, rinse it off and your pout is baby-soft & rid of any dry skin… amazing!

Well there you have it, this month’s low down on my skin care routine. I shall be back soon with some hair products I’ve recently been using so watch this space!

#BeautyCrush: A LUSH Winter Limited Edition Range Worth Celebrating!

To mark the launch of the much awaited Limited edition winter range, Lush team in the UAE put together a little performance to get guests in festive spirits. The unique presentation explained the range while entertaining guests with light hearted humour, The Lush way! Bloggers & Press members had the opportunity to try out the range and experience some festive magic.

 The Range will be in all Lush store worldwide as of October 2013.

The Winter Limited edition  Range

 Bath Ballistics

Invented by Mo Constantine OBE in 1987.  The Bath Ballistic is often imitated, but none compare to the original.  Each one is formulated with the finest ingredients and essential oils to cleanse both the mind and body.  This Christmas, instead of glitter we have added popping candy, edible lustres and agar jelly stars and shapes for spectacular bathing. Simply drop into a ready run, warm bath and watch as it fizzes around the tub with abandonment, emitting its goodness into the water.

 

NEW  Bombardino (28 aed) … Alpine Indulgence

Bombardino shares its name with a beverage enjoyed in the Italian Alps and smells of rich lemon cheesecake.  We’ve added cocoa butter to soften the skin; whilst Sicilian lemon oil and Fair Trade vanilla absolute (the first Fair Trade absolute in the world!) give your bath a sweet and delicious fragrance.

NEW Lord of Misrule (36 aed) … Strange & Magnificent

Featuring Fair Trade vanilla absolute, the world’s first Fair Trade absolute, mixed with spicy black pepper oil and soothing patchouli.  Allow this ballistic to slowly dissolve in your bath to reveal a wine coloured centre.  The crown shape around the ballistic is the party hat that the tradition of the Lord of Misrule inspired centuries ago. Popping candy represents the party atmosphere that he would have created during his rule over a period of winter merriment.

NEW Luxury Lush Pud (37 aed) … Calorie Free Comfort

For a soothing and calming bath, this year Lush Pud has gone all luxury with colourful polka dots that float to the surface making pastel islands in the water.  A relaxing bath treat made with the comforting lavender and ylang ylang scent of Twilight – perfect for a bath before bedtime.

NEW Secret Santa (55 aed) … Cheeky Santa Surprise

Modelled on the original LUSH shop, 29 High Street in Poole, this double-layered ballistic is scented with soothing sandalwood, zesty lime and beautiful floral oils to emulate the iconic fragrance of our shops.  Watch your bath water turn a bright orange and don’t miss the jolly red fellow inside!  This one is great value for money, as its three baths in one!

NEW Shoot for the Stars (36 aed) … Night Time Enchantment

Uplifting Brazilian orange oil, clarifying bergamot and the creamy scent of honey will deeply relax you in the bath.  Shoot for the Stars creates an out of this world, enchanting bath as the stars inside whizz and swirl about the bathwater, leaving you submerged in clouds of colour. Fragranced with Honey I Washed the Kids – our best selling soap.

NEW LOOK      Snowman (28 aed) … A Big Softy

Pop this ballistic into a warm bath for a nourishing and softening soak. The simple vanilla and cheeky ylang ylang fragrance helps you warm up for winter and the cocoa butter chunks dissolve to moisturise your skin.  This is the Christmas version of all year round, Butterball bath ballistic.

Cinders (27 aed) … Warm By The Fireside

Cinders ballistic invokes the feeling of a warm, glowing fireside; made with warming cinnamon leaf oil and sweet orange oil to lift the spirits. Popping candy tops it all off, to emulate that comforting sound of a crackling open fire, while you relax in the bath.  Vegan

Golden Wonder (39 aed) … A Wonder to Behold

Drop this gold dusted gift into a warm bath and watch in wonder as golden stars burst out, dissolving in the water before your very eyes, turning the bath water a vibrant blue. The fragrance of sweet orange oil and lime oil will uplift your spirits.  Vegan

So White (36aed) … The Fairest of Them All

As pure as freshly fallen snow. So White has a delicate pink centre, which un-folds as the white outer layer gently dissolves.  The fresh, apple inspired scent snuggles you under the blanket of soft foamy bubbles.  Relax as neroli oil uplifts the mind and beautiful rose absolute softens the skin.  Vegan

Father Christmas (38 aed) … Ho, Ho, Ho!

Drop this festive chap into your bathtub and marvel as he fizzes around turning the water from bright red to vivid green.  He fills your tub with a zingy, fruity, uplifting fragrance of mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange blossom absolute.  Not only are these oils stimulating for the mind, but they’re also toning for the skin, helping to banish the winter blues and induce feelings of goodwill to all.  Vegan

Bubble Bars

Invented by Helen Ambrosen in 1998, bubble bars are a solid alternative to bubble bath that are unpreserved and packaging free.  Using a simple base of tartar and sodium bicarbonate, all sorts of essential oils and fresh ingredients are added to create the solid bubble bar slices we know and love.  To use, simply crumble under warm running water to create masses and masses of luxurious, softening, film star bubbles.  The Bubble Bath is back!  Patented.

 

 

NEW   The Christmas Penguin (32 aed) … P-P-Pop in the Penguin!

Crumble this fun fellow under running water for a bath scented with refreshing orange flower absolute and Sicilian mandarin oil and masses of white bubbles to build glaciers with!  This bubble bar was inspired by the smallest penguins in the world, which are blue and from Philip Island in Australia.

If you fall in love with the Christmas Penguin then don’t worry, you can get The Olive Branch shower gel all year through with the same exotic scent.

NEW LOOK Candy Mountain (29 aed) … Sugar Sweet Treat

Candy Mountain creates mounds of fluffy, fragrant, pearly white bubbles with a drift of pink. Crumble in your bath for a sugar sweet treat you won’t feel an ounce of guilt for indulging in! Vegan

Christmas Eve (32 aed) … Moonlight Soak

Crumble under a running tap and lie back amongst the masses of calming jasmine and ylang ylang scented bubbles and blue bath water.  Perfect to help calm excited minds enough to get a good night sleep.  There’s also some Irish moss powder (a type of seaweed) in there to soften the skin and make the water silky.  Vegan

Magic Wand Bubble Bar (50 aed) … Sweet Scented Bubbles

Fairy princesses of all ages will love this great value re-usable bubble bar for up to ten bubble baths.  Swish it around in the water for a skin softening, vanilla scented soak and a mound of candy bubbles.  Then pop it on the side for use another time … just like magic! Vegan

 FUN

A multi-purpose product for washing your hair and body with; for masses of fragrant bubbles in the bathtub; or for just having fun with by moulding it into different shapes … the fun just goes on and on!  10p from each bar sold also goes into a FUNd for children’s charities in Japan affected by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster.   Invented by Mo Constantine OBE for her grandchildren. Patent applied for.

NEW Golden FUN (55 aed) … Christmas Fun time

A new bar of FUN for Christmas, with a gold lustre and scented with the best-selling Honey I Washed the Kids fragrance.  Comforting sweet wild orange oil, uplifting bergamot oil and softening cornflour make this bar of FUN the ideal fun-filled, feel-good gift. Forget the frankincense and myrrh and stock up on the Golden FUN!

Bath Melts

LUSH invented solid bath oils in 1999 and named them, quite simply, Bath Melts.  Molten almond oil and Fair Trade cocoa butter form the heart of this bath time treat and really moisturise, soothe, soften and plump up the skin, leaving it silky smooth.  Bath Melts are one of the most luxurious things you can put in the bath. Immersing yourself in beautiful, emulsifying and wonderfully fragranced butters is like luxuriating in a bath of moisturiser.

NEW Star Light Star Bright (35 aed) … Bathe in Starlight

Softening cocoa and shea butter moisturise the skin while extra virgin coconut oil deeply hydrates.  Refreshing ginger and zesty lime oil inspire positivity and will give you an extra spark during dreary winter months. Crush this under running water and marvel as the star slowly melts, leaving a silvery lustre spread across the water in a magical trail of starlight through turquoise coloured water.

NEW FRAGRANCE The Melting Snowman (25 aed) … Softening Snowman Soak

Cocoa butter and almond oil nourish and soften the skin while the cinnamon leaf oil invigorates and helps shake off fatigue. This year he’s got a beautiful, comforting, spicy and warming hot toddy fragrance of cinnamon oil, clove leaf, lime oil and sweet orange oil. Vegan

 Soaps

LUSH has been manufacturing luxury handmade soaps since the mid 1980s. In a deliberate move away from truly mass commercial soaps, LUSH has perfected the technique of making solid soap by hand using the “pouring” method.  In 2007 Mo Constantine OBE helped to invent a palm oil free soap base – so not only are LUSH soaps not made with any animal fats, they also help to save the rain forests.  This base is available for any manufacturer who would like to use it.

 

NEW Orange Jelly (37 aed for 100g) … Zesty and Fresh

This soap is orange, pure and simple.  It has freshly squeezed orange juice, toning Brazilian orange oil and topped off with fresh orange slices preserved in seaweed-based jelly.  A summery uplifting scent, just what you need in the middle of winter!

NEW Noriko Soap (37aed for 100g) … Delicate Soap Dream

Named after its inventor this soap is made with Japanese-inspired ingredients like tofu and rice.  Delicate rose absolute and ylang ylang oil calm the stresses of the season while creamy tofu nourishes the skin.  This soap’s floral notes and playful jelly float you into a colourful daydream far removed from the chilly winter weather.

Angel’s Delight (35 aed for 100g) … Just Heavenly

This annual favourite is back with the same jelly baby scent that you know and love!  Angel’s will swoon for all the pink sparkly stars and moons that are embedded in this soap and it’s the tangerine and orange oils, along with blackcurrant that give it its yummy fragrance.  These oils also really work to cleanse, refresh and detox the skin.  Vegan

Mr Punch (41 aed for 100g) … A Slice of Summer

This soap certainly packs a punch with a concoction of fruity essential oils to help fend off the winter cold – there’s cleansing juniperberry oil, blackcurrant absolute, uplifting lime oil and softening coconut oil …it also helps tone the skin!  Vegan

Snowcake (35 aed for 100g) … Marzipan and almond inspired heaven

A LUSH classic and bestseller, a slice of Snowcake smells just like the irresistible almond marzipan on the Christmas cake.  Lather up with gorgeous rose absolute, that soothes dry, cracked winter skin, and berry scented cassie absolute.  Your skin will be left softened and beautifully scented. Vegan

Snow Globe (35 aed for 100g) … Perk Up Your Skin. Refresh your senses.

Lemon myrtle, grapefruit oil and ylang ylang make this soap an invigorating choice for the depths of winter.  The whole soap is in the shape of a snow globe, with white circles to imitate the snowflakes.  Vegan

Shower Gels

LUSH shower gels may not be naked … but they’re not virgin either!  The bottles are made from recycled plastic and manufactured in England.  By using recycled plastic for our bottles, we are saving nearly 73 tonnes of virgin plastic and 125 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.

 

Snow Fairy (prices start at 45 aed for 100g) … Truly Scrumptious

A festive favourite and cause for celebration, this year Snow Fairy is unpreserved and we’ve replaced her non-biodegradable glitter with environmentally friendly shimmering lustre!  But don’t worry, she has the same sweet, magical scent of soothing vanilla and comforting vanilla – she’s just granting the planet’s wishes as well as yours! Vegan

Ponche (prices start at 48 aed for 100g) … Tequila at Sunrise

Spanish for punch, this shower gel is inspired by the Mexican fruit punch made from seasonal fruits such as plums, oranges, cinnamon and vanilla.  All ingredients that can help warm and stimulate the senses.  Wash your hair and body with this fruity, softening shower gel and lift your spirits on dark, gloomy days!

Rose Jam (prices start at 52aed for 100g) … A Kiss from a Rose

Inspired by our love for roses and the benefits of nourishing argan oil, this shower gel is a decadent as it gets!  Skin brightening goji berry juice and Sicilian lemon give your skin a boost, while rose oil and rose absolute leave it soothed, softened and beautifully fragranced.  A luxurious way to start each day.

For the Lips …

Cold weather can leave lips flaky, sore and chapped – which is not a good look for under the mistletoe!  Choose from LUSH’s range of unpreserved lip scrubs, balms and tints to ensure a soft, smooth, extremely kissable pair of lips.

 

 

NEW Santa’s Lip Scrub (60 aed) … Kissable Christmas lips

The caster sugar in this scrub will gently exfoliate away any dry skin from your lips, whilst the extra virgin coconut oil moisturises, leaving them soft and conditioned.  This lip scrub has the fragrance of fizzy cola sweets for delicious tasting kisses, with a hint of festive red.  Scrub lips before applying colour for a flawless pout.

NEW Santa Baby Lip Tint (60 aed) … Hurry down the chimney tonight

A classic red, this tint is a colourful moisture boost for the lips.  Loaded with Fair Trade butters to soften and nourishing carrot oil to care for the lips; with extracts of cherries and dates to give a sweet hint of festive flavour; and extracts of cinnamon stick to plump up your pout.  Use after scrubbing lips to be mistletoe ready!  Vegan

Body Care …

In winter, we need extra moisture to help retain the skin’s elasticity and smooth texture.  One of the most important things for your skin is to keep it gently stimulated and maintain a healthy circulation.  By doing this you’ll encourage the elimination of toxins, ensure a healthy turnover of cells and stimulate muscle tone.  This year we have a selection of festive unpreserved body care products to help you keep your skin in tip-top condition, softened and fragranced beautifully too.

NEW FORMULA Sandy Santa (65 aed) … scrubs & softens

Keep your skin looking and feeling amazing during winter with this limited edition sugar scrub.  This year it’s even more beneficial for the skin, with added coconut oil and butters, such as murumuru and organic shea butter, to intensely moisturise.  Sugar and sand add the gentle polishing effect.  Fragranced with toning Brazilian orange oil as a nod to his exotic inspiration – the sand sculptures on Copacabana beach!

NEW Snow Fairy Sparkle (50 aed) … Sweet Sparkling Skin

Snow Fairy fragranced sparkle in a bar!  With a soft heart full of moisturising butters, oils and shimmering silver lustre to leave you smelling candy sweet and ready for your party dress.  Smooth this bar over your arms and shoulders for soft shimmering skin that catches the light as you flutter.

NEW Celebrate hand and body lotion (140 aed) … Bottoms Up!

Celebrate the festive season with this beautiful unpreserved hand and body lotion.  Rich and wonderfully emollient, the cocoa butter and almond oil will replenish and moisturise your skin, while the inspired fragrance uplifts your spirits.  Brazilian orange oil and lime oil tones the skin and lifts you out of the winter blues while geting you into the party mood.  Vegan

NEW Sikkim Girls body cream (240 aed) … Seductive and Sensual

Fragranced with ‘Sikkim Girls’ from Gorilla Perfumes, this decadent cream will perfume the skin like no other. Jasmine flowers infused with vanilla pods and Darjeeling tea creates the soothing base.  Unpreserved and richly emollient, creamy butters and hemp oil nourish your skin while Tuberose, Jasmine and Frangipani essential oils entice others closer.  A sexy, nourishing cream that will leave you feeling seduced after the bath or shower.

Follow with a dab of the Sikkim Girls fragrance by the Gorilla Perfumers at LUSH.

 Skin Care …

Everyday when you face the world it can be rather unkind.  Dirt, grime, and pollution … it all collects on your epidermis and pores.  You may not see it, but it’s there.  Cleansing your face is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself; especially if you’re using one of our gentle inventions.  Mo Constantine OBE excels in these beautiful formulas, which are greatly valued, especially during the festive season, when our skin can suffer from late nights and all sorts of indulgences.

We offer seasonal facial cleansers to offer your skin a little bit of some special TLC that it might need over the festive season.  In the New Year, once the excess of Christmas is a thing of the past, choose from our range of year round cleansing rolls; including: Angels on Bare SkinDark AngelsAqua Marina; or Herbalism.

 

 

Let the Good Times Roll cleansing roll (64 aed for 100g) … Scrubs and Softens

An exfoliating cleanser for the face and body, to softly scrub dry winter skin and moisturise at the same time.  Delicately cleansing maize flour, polenta and corn oil are all gently absorbent and can help to even out skin tone.  Talc enables the cleanser to glide easily over the skin, while glycerine acts as a humectant keeping the skin expertly nourished and moisturised, which means this one is especially good for dry skin (a common complaint during the winter months).  Crushed popcorn garnishes this rolled cleanser.  Skin will be left softened, soothed and ever so slightly warmed by the cinnamon powder, which can help with circulation.  Vegan

Bûche de Noël cleansing roll (65 aed for 100g) … Gentle and Nourishing

This cleansing roll is food for your face, containing lots of softening and nourishing ingredients to care for any skin type during the winter months.  With ground almonds to gently exfoliate the skin; dried cranberries and fresh satsumas to tone and brighten; nutritious almond oil to soften; and cocoa butter to act as an emollient.  Helps lock in moisture and keep skin soft against the cold.  Wrapped in a sheet of nori seaweed, it resembles a festive Yule Log.   Vegan

Our Fresh facemasks are made daily by hand, with fresh natural ingredients.  They contain no preservatives and are made with whole fruits and vegetables and the finest essential oils.  They are so fresh they have to be kept in the fridge and used within 3 weeks!

Cold weather and central heating can cause skin to dry out, so using facemasks is a good way to replenish moisture and get vitamins and nutrients directly onto your face.  Inventor and co-Founder Helen Ambrosen comments:  “They will deliver fresh ingredients directly onto the skin to work their magic, giving you an effective way to naturally protect against aging.  Facemasks containing clays such as kaolin will help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.”  So great to use before the Christmas party for a temporary natural lift!

NEW Rudolph fresh facemask (55 aed) … soothes red noses.

A soothing, nourishing mask to calms skin from the cold.  Fresh cucumber and aloe vera gel reduce redness, fine oatmeal nourishes, calamine powder soothes.  Organic lavender oil balances the skin and green tea powder has antioxidant properties to help fight free radicals. Smother your face in this mask and leave for 5 to 10 minutes – and don’t forget to pop your shiny jelly red nose in place!

#FashionCrush: Baruni will showcase its A/W13 Collection at The Sunset Mall on 25th September!

Fadwa Baruni, creator of the Baruni brand is one of the most talked about women’s fashion designers in the region.

Taking her inspiration from the structured world of engineering and her North African heritage, Fadwa combines her strong fashion sensibilities with her earlier training in engineering to design a collection that clearly displays sophistication, clean lines, sharp tailoring, to wear with ease and fit.

The remarkable designer will be in the Sunset Mall on 25th of September, 2013, from 7PM onwards,

The evening is set to be an unforgettable one, complete with Anita Buys, a Dubai based media personality with a passion for fashion, hosting the event. Sponsoring the make-up for the models will be the esteemed VOG – Color Your Life Salon.

The theme for the all new Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection is “A New Independence” and is about the need for women to explore themselves outside of the usual and defining a bold and unique look.

The collection is inspired and dedicated to the independence Fadwa has witnessed in the attitudes of the women she works and socializes with.

This collection is special to her in more ways than one. It is also to celebrate the fact that Fadwa is one of the first Libyan designers to enter the fashion scene in the UAE and through this collection she intends to capture that distinct individuality and reflect it onto the people wearing the designs.

This collection has evolved tremendously from Baruni’s previous collections; it is bolder and incorporates stronger colors and fabric designs than ever before.

Currently, Baruni Brand is sold, in Dubai, exclusively through Rivaage Boutique which is located in The Sunset Mall. Rivaage has offered its unmatched support for the fashion show and represents the pinnacle of couture fashion in the country, showcasing a world class selection of established designers.
