Can you believe it’s already been almost 3 weeks?! Not long to go before the much awaited Eid celebrations!
And in keeping with looking gorge throughout Ramadan to ensure we spend the Holidays looking fabulous, here is a bit of a ‘What’s Been On My Face Lately‘ post!
Being a blogger and obsessed with beauty products, I try EVERYTHING that’s new! Sometimes, it doesn’t quite work out but when I do find an amazing product, I just want to share it with all of you glamistas out there so you don’t have to do the hard work ;)!
So here are my star skin care products this season:
I’ve picked the Neutrogena Deep Clean face wash a few weeks ago and been using it ever since. A great drugstore contender, this soft gel dissolves make-up and dirt in no time, leaving you with a deeply cleansed canvas you can really work with ! See my full product review here.
Now THIS is my SUPER STAR product! I’ve actually discovered this genius thing a couple of months ago .
The Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel is a 2-step daily super peel which you can use at home. This one not only diminishes the appearance of fine wrinkles, it helps complexion problems, balances oil, tones skin and increases clarity and radiance all the whole minimizing pores and scars… I mean do I really need to say more? At AED400 for a 30-day course, it isn’t the cheapest BUT I’ve used it every evening for a week now and can tell you my skin has never looked SO good, so it was well worth it!
I wrote a full product review on this fabulous Herbline Essentials Cucumber & Rose Water Skin Toner so check it out here.
It smells divine, feels so fresh and soothing and is made of 100% natural products.
Another one of my latest discoveries, the new L’Occitane Essence Sublime Serum which helps to correct skin irregularities, soothe & reduce redness, refined texture and reduce the appearance of pores… again, need I say more? This one was around AE280 but was assured it would last me for a few months as you only need a pea size amount twice-daily.
In the same L’Occitane range, please meet the new Sublime Beauty Cream! This one really has made it to my favorite BB Creams lists from the 1st time I tried it. The share (medium for me) is just perfect, adapted to my skin tone in seconds and felt oh so amazing!
The Sublime Beauty Cream offers all the benefits of a moisturise AND foundation in one! It gives the complexion a fresh, natural, dewy look and has a built-in SPF30! Genius!!
This one was AED169.
6. Eye Cream
Here is another fantastic produce from Herbline Essentials! Their new Aloe Vera and Honey Under Eye Gel hydrates and tightens your under eye skin with the use of the powerful and multi-tasking Aloe Vera ingredient. The Honey provides micronutrients and moisturises also protecting your eyes from the ill effects of the sun and environment. Dark circles are reduced, with bags and fine lines being washed away, giving a flawless, natural result. At AED99 it’s a real bargain!
7. Overnight cream
Can you tell I like to mix and match different skin care brands?! Let’s say that I like the best of both (in this case 7) worlds!
Another product I discovered at a recent bloggers event is the Elemis FreshSkin Dreamy Sleep Night-Time Moisturiser (AED125) which works to rejuvenate & replenish your skin whilst you’re asleep. You’ll woke up with deeply moisturised and restore skin!
Well there you have it again, my current skin care routine which I hope will inspire some of you to try some (or all) of these fabulous products!
Do share your favorite beauty staples.. I’ll soon be on the look out for new ones
