#BeautyCrush: Today’s Boots Haul

Hey guys!

So I went for a little beauty shopping trip to The Dubai Mall this afternoon with one of my fellow Blogger, Maryam… I really wanted to check out the new Bobby Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette, but sadly, we will have to wait another 2 weeks until it hits our shores!

I then popped into Boots and got a couple of things:

Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub – a yummy smelling body scrubs

Bourjois Paris Happy Light Base Serum

Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipstick in 01

The Original Tangle Teaser

I also popped into the book store and picked up ‘The Black Book of Hollywood Beauty Secrets‘ by Kym Douglas & Cindy Pearlman!

I’ll be posting a proper review of all these items on the blog over the coming days.

#BeautyCrush: Fabulous toner!

You know, I’ve gotta admit, I always liked the idea of ‘natural/organic’ beauty products BUT I’ve always been a little sceptical about whether they actually work and, perhaps a bit scared of how my skin might react to them.

But, I do like a challenge and so when I received a bottle of Herbline Essentials Cucumber & Rose Water Tonic in my VIVA Beauty Awards GlamBox, I decided to give it a try for a least a week (the time it usually takes my skin to say yay or nay).

And well, it has now been a week exactly and both my skin and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!

The tonic smells divine and feels so fresh! Apply a little bit on a cotton pad, dab it all over your face, apply your usual moisturiser and you’re good to go! I use it morning & night.

Herbline Essentials is a beauty range that advocates a return to nature, offering consumers Ayurvedic products . All their products are made from 100% natural ingredients sourced in the Himalayas, are paraben, paraffin and cruelty free and provide long term benefits for a healthy body and mind.

Herbline Essentials products are currently available in over 100 pharmacies in the UAE, including Boots, Bin Sina, Health First and United Pharmacies; and online through Natural.ae, Zanedo.com, Mumzworld.com. and Glambox.me.

#BeautyCrush: Bourjois So Laque Nail Polishes

Show me your nails and I’ll tell you who you are. Quite a bold statement isn’t it? Well, it’s totally true! You can tell a lot about a gal by just looking at her hands, more specifically her nails!

Well maintained, manicured nails are elegant, chic and show that one cares about their appearance. Your nails can transform a look completely and have become an actual ‘accessory’, an extension of our own personal style. Some like them natural, others prefer bold flashy colours.

I personally am addicted to getting my nails done religiously every 3 weeks. I usually opt for the long-lasting, low maintenance gel manicure, at least on my hands.

For feet, I do like to change colours according to what I’m wearing so I usually do it at home.   I’ve tried many different polishes over the years. Expensive ones, cheaper ones… any major brands you can think of until I tried the Bourjois So Laque polishes

! I had read an excellent review on one of the many blogs & sites I follow and thought I’d give it a go & I did AND I felt in love!! These polishes are just simply the most resistant I have tried. Says they last for 10 days on the bottle and I have had my pedi on for about 2 weeks now. And I only applied 2 coats! They even resisted through a couple of soccer training sessions!

These HAVE to be the best ‘bargain beauty’ buy I’ve ever found!! At AED39 each, they’re a steal! I actually bought all 8 shades!

Check out Bourjois’ Facebook page for easy, do-it-yourself nail art inspirations! Thought this one was quite cute!

I’ve been sharing these on my Page too so don’t forget to check it out AND like it!!
