Oliveda- Skincare Science

Recently, I had the opportunity to try Oliveda skincare range, which contains the goodness of olives. Read on to find out what I feel about the products:)

FOREO LUNA GO

We all know that skincare after a certain age is very important and it is of utmost importance that one follows a daily routine and skincare ritual to maintain the youthful glow and to hold on to that soft and supple skin.

CARBON LASER PEEL AT PREMIUM COSMETIC & LASER CENTRE

As influencers, we get to try loads of beauty treatments and some of them may not really turn out to be as expected. I have been taking regular facials at different salons and usually, the facials here in UAE involve steam and pricking and extraction of blackheads. Now all this may perhaps be good for a normal skin, which is not prone to various pollution related issues, has small pores, is not prone to acne, pigmentation and shares a fairly decent equation with Mr. Sun. But, what if someone’s skin is extremely sensitive to various pollutants in the air like dust, smoke, sand particles, is oily with large pores and is prone t all the possible skin issues that one can think of! And that is what my skin is like.

YVES ROCHER BB CREAM SERUM VEGETAL- REVIEW

Time for sharing some thoughts on something that I bought a couple of months back. I don’t remember the exact price, but I think it was about 80-90 Dhs for a 40ml tube.

NATURAL ELEMENTS SPA – KUNDALINI MASSAGE

A while back, I had reviewed a super luxury massage therapy (which of course also comes at a super luxurious price!). However, if you are looking for some not so expensive pampering yet a relaxing session, then Natural Elements Spa is your answer. The spa is located at the Le Meridien Hotel in Dubai (very close to the airport) and offers various full body massage therapies, including speciality massages such as Ne signature treatment, Kundalini treatment, Ku Nye Massage as well as other full body massages such as swedish massage, sports massage, royal thai massage and aromatherapy massage.

GUINOT DOUBLE IONISATION HYDRA FACIAL AT ENVOGUE BEAUTY CENTRE

If you live in UAE then you know what our skin goes through each and every second of the day. From hard water to sand to air conditioning and dehydration, I can perhaps give a long list of skin damaging factors.

CASMARA LUXURY ALGAE PEEL MASK

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the Beauty World Middle East, one of the regions biggest beauty exhibition , thanks to Nazih Cosmetics!I witnessed various shows on the Nazih centre stage, including the one by Ardell Lashes and another by everyone’s favorite Guy Tang!

NU SKIN TRANSFORMATION KIT- AN ANTI AGEING KIT THAT ACTUALLY WORKS

We all know that there are numerous anti ageing products that have surfaced over the past few years and anti ageing in itself has become and industry. And as an influencer, I have tried so many of them, but honestly, there are a very few anti ageing products really work. Amongst my favorites is Nuskin Ageloc Transdormation Kit.

URBAN VEDA – RADIANCE REPLENISHING NIGHT CREAM

I have spoken enough about my problem skin and hence, you would perhaps find me trying different brightening creams. This time, its Urban veda, which is a UK brand, based on Ayurvedic philosophy. It is a brand that uses natural ingredients, taking inspiration from age old Ayurvedic principles and is SL free, paraben free and does not contain any GM ingredients. I ordered my Urban veda cream from my favourite online store Basharacare:) (priced at 135 AED for a 50ml pack).

ZURI BEAUTY LOUNGE

I have been to a lot of beauty salons and have experienced different services. However, my recent experience at Zuri Beauty Lounge, located at The Mall in Jumeirah (right opposite Jumeirah Beach Hotel) was undoubtedly one of the best.

F-BOXX

We have loads of subscription boxes available, but I’ve noticed most of them come with 4-5 products and most of the times, they are samples.However, I have discovered a new subscription box, which doesn’t give you just 3-4 products, but gives you a lot more and these are not sample sized products, all of them are full sized products! Sounds cool?

FOR THE LOVE OF SENSITIVE SKIN: ROGE CAVAILLES

Recently, I was extremely fortunate to get introduced to a brand that has been creating pioneering skincare products for almost a century. The brand is Roge Cavailles “, which originated as a Pharmacy about 95 years back, in France.

HELIOCARE 360DEGREE GEL OIL FREE SUNBLOCK

Hi Lovelies! Summer is here in full swing and its that time of the year again, when you get that additional bit of tan and sun spots. Good for those who love to tan their skin and love their summer beach time, but I guess the grass is always greener on the other side. As an asian with a relatively brown skin, I don’t like to get tanned at all. And more than the tan, i think its the ill and dangerous effects and the fear of skin cancer which stops me from being a true beach baby.

WELLCLUBS- BECAUSE BLISS AND WELLNESS IS JUST A CLICK AWAY!

With our busy lives and stressful schedules, we all deserve some good pampering sessions. After all, who would mind a nice manicure or a relaxing head massage;) But, my one and only problem is I don’t like to call and then check with the salon (amidst all the chaos of clients, payments and other phone calls!) about the services, prices,available appointments and so on. in usually pressed for time and my phone is practically my mobile office. And, therefore, apps like Wellclubs are perfect for me.

DERMALOGICA AND EUCERIN – THANKS BASHARACARE

Very recently, I came across a wonderful online portal called Basharacare. Its a wonderful online portal where you can purchase skin care, face care, haircare and makeup products (and even products for men!) from top brands like Dermalogica, Phyto, Lipstick Queen, Jane Iredale, Eucerin and many more.

NU SKIN AGELOC FUTURE SERUM

VANIDAY LAUNCHES CASHBACK

If you remember, I had done a post introducing Vaniday, which is the online destination to find and book beauty & wellness services and salons and they make it possible to order beauty & wellness services as easily as it is to book a hotel, buy a plane ticket, or order a taxi.

LED GLAM EXPRESS FACIAL BY EUROMED CLINIC

I have always had a highly “sun-sensitive” skin, which means I am extremely prone to suntan, sun spots, hyper pigmentation and because I have oily skin, ‘thankfully’ (can you read my sarcasm!), I have one more problem, which is breakouts and acne.

BEAUTY IS DERMALOGICA!

Whoever said beauty is only skin deep I am sure never had the opportunity to receive a Dermalogica Age Smart facial; for the science & skill that goes into delivering it perfectly, is a result of years of research. And if you thought only phones could be smart…take that…

VANIDAY- HAVE YOU TRIED IT YET?!

And here I am with another review of a fantastic app that allows you to search the best available options to pamper yourself. I know we all are busy with day to day routine, work, kids, home and a whole lot of other things. However, our busy schedule shouldn’t really become an excuse to ignore our own care and “me time”. a lot of my friends often complain that they usually get very short windows for visiting salons and then in those short windows, they sometimes dont know which salon is located nearby in their vicinity.

PRODUCT REVIEW-HUMAN+ KIND FAMILY REMEDY CREAM

I actually found this cream accidentally and I have to say that this accident proved to be really beneficial! I have fallen in love with this product and I’m sure I’m going to try more products from Human Kind.

MY HOMEMADE BEAUTY BODY SCRUB

I know you would say why would I make this scrub at home, when there are plenty of them available in the market! However, I can give plenty of reasons in support- One, its economical to DIY @home. Two, its safe as you only use the ingredients mostly available in your kitchen and you avoid parabens and harmful chemicals. Three, Its NOT tested on animals. Four, its NOT made in any sweat factories. And Five, its FUN to DIY!!
