Alive lab is a Korea skincare brand popular for their ice cream skincare line. They have very unique skincare products with interesting ingredient list. One that particularly piked my curiosity was centella blemish powder. A product which can be mixed with any cream and applied directly onto the problematic areas of face They were kind enough to send me a few products to try out today I will be reviewing centella dressing foam a mild cleanser which effectively reduces oil from the face and calms down any skin irritation or redness. it also effective in reducing skin aging and acne

Here is what the brand has to say about this product
Centella Dressing Foam, which provides deep cleansing care without irritation.
1. You can use it without any concern about trouble, as it is formulated with Centella water.
2. A mild cleanser with soft and foamy bubbles.
3. You can feel fresh after usig it due to its natural detergent.
Packaging: Its a nice mint  green squeeze tube which looks simple and nice
Quantity: 120ml
About the product
This face cleanser smells of herbs some which I don't mind as the scent does not linger for longer duration and is mild

This cleanser is white in color and foams when massage onto the skin. The bubbles are mild nothing too crazy. Overall it feels nice on the skin. It does such a nice job in calming my skin and reducing redness. It does not dry out the skin nor does it makes it too oily. My skin feels soft and refreshed. I have been using this for two weeks and I am so happy to report that my skin looks so much better. This has helped with the acne flare ups that i experience during monsoon.
This is a nice cleanser which improves skin texture with regular use. Definitely one of the best face cleansers I have used in a while
Thankyou Alive lab for giving me the opportunity to try out this amazing product

I have been a smart shopper lately so every time I go out I think twice when purchasing something. And I am happy to report that for the past couple of months I haven't bought any makeup/skincare item on a whim.

Since I am a contact lens user I switched from optiplus contact lens cleaner to Renu contact lens cleaning solution lets see how this works for both my eyes and contact lens
After trying out the bioderma sensibio h2o micellar water I have been quite curious about the performance of garnier micellar water so I bought a small bottle of it to test out. I will post a detailed review on it soon also I might do a comparison post on the two.
Moving on I bought another cleanser from the skin maskeurade exhibition. First impressions: This smells so good . I also got some samples so lets see if I like them or not

I also purchased Maybelline baby lips lip balm a staple for every purse. And since summer is here I picked out a fun green colored nail enamel . And a pen eyeliner. Some nail enamel removing pads and the color changing lip oil. Rhinestone Bobby pins and a garnier sample size face wash that I got with a purchase of a hair dye .
That's all guys. Are you a smart shopper or do you purchase things on a whim. Do let me know in comments section down below

The holy month of Ramadan is almost here and I am so excited 😃. Even though it has been over a month since i got measles my skin has not come back to its normal pattern. So my there has been some major changes skincare routine to deal with the dry flaky skin.

Before I share the products with you guys here is a request. If you haven't got measles as of yet please get vaccinated because trust me adult measles are more severe than childhood measles. The disease is very exhausting and takes a very long time to recover. The sign and symptoms are severe and more pronounced. And the measles scar take a long time to disappear so just save your self from all the trouble and get vaccinated. As vaccination gives life long protection
Ok back to the original post. I will start of with cleanser first. My skin is normally oily. So I use cleanser which reduce oil production and combat acne but as my skin is now very dry I have switched to a hydrating cleanser by nature republic. Now this is basically a cleanser to remove makeup but honestly jt was not doing a good job at removing makeup so now I use this as a face wash. This aloe cleanser leaves the skin soft and moisturized.

Moving on to makeup removers i like to switch between bioderma sensibio H2O micellar water and the Garnier micellar water. Both are gentle on the skin and remove makeup without much effort.
To achieve smooth, flake free skin I use a very mild and gentle green tea scrub by ST.Ives. This is has such fine round granules which are non abrasive and very gentle on the skin. Plus the exfoliate the skin quite thoroughly.
For moisturizer I like to use oriflame tea tree moisturizer during day time and at night I use some thing more hydrating so stelatopia cream by mustella is my choice. Both moisturize the skin well without leaving an oily film.

Even though my skin is dry I like to wear a mud mask once every week, currently i am using the one by freemans ( oatmeal and avocado version)
I like to spritz my face with rose water during the day. This makes my face look dewy and fresh.
Lastly I am enjoying the scent of Maybelline baby lips lip balm in berry crush. This unfortunately doesn't leave a tint on the lips but does keeps my lips soft and smooth
That's all for my current routine. Would you recommend any skincare product I should try out?

With more awareness about growing environmental changes and damage caused by harsh chemicals people are now turning to natural organic skincare products,  in Pakistan organic and natural skin care products are hard to come by only handful of brands are available with a very limited range, ordering foreign brands via fb stores is the only option.  Duvi Stockholm a Swedish skincare brand recently launched its products in Pakistan; today I will be reviewing their   green tea face wash

Quantity: 150ml

Price 1150 pkr

A very sturdy, white squeeze tube which has a very secure cap so no chances of leakage 

About the product:
green tea face wash effectively removes  dirt and impurities without drying the skin. Enriched with a healthy blend of natural ingredients including green tea, aloe vera and olive vegetable extracts. These extracts are known for moisturizing and hydrating your skin as well as reducing the severity of breakouts. Purify your face to reveal a fresh and luminous complexion

My thoughts :
the facewash  has a very mild refreshing green tea scent to it which is not strong or overpowering it has a transparent green gel like texture which lathers well, my face has become a little dry due to winter so I was fearful that it might leave my skin over dry but to my surprise it didn’t. my skin did feel moisturized .
as a cleanser it does pretty well removing oil from t-zone, I haven’t experience any breakouts either
for the price it’s a good facewash as it contains a generous amount of 150 ml which is going to last you a really long time moreover its paraben free, Organic and natural

I would suggest to try out this facewash as it’s suitable to use for all skin types

Duvi Stockholm is currently stocked at  Organic Shop in DHA and Beautex Salon DHA and Pot Pourri DHA, it can also be ordered online via the duivistockholm pk website or from the

I spotted this face wash at the cash and carry and felt the urge to try it I am currently using saeed ghani’s aloe face wash as i like using natural products, my skin reacts quite badly to soap causes breakouts

Lemon is quite popular for its lightening properties also it contains vitamin C  which ensures supple skin

 My skin in actually fair so I really don’t need the fairness effect but I thought this might just reduce the few acne blemishes I have

Quantity: 50 ml

Price: 110  Pkr

Manufactured in India


It’s a squeeze tube just like any other face wash tube, has a clear lid 

My thoughts

a light lemon-y green colored   which has a creamy texture, lathers slightly, has a nice citrus scent I found it very pleasing but disappears after a few minutes,

It’s a very mild face wash suitable to use several times a day. Makes the skin feel tight and reduces oil secretion from the sebaceous gland, it lightened my blemishes to some extent I can say (been using it for three weeks actually) But is not a good cleanser because it didn’t remove my makeup much, the saeed ghani’s face wash however does an excellent job in removing makeup

You might like it:

If you like to wash your face several times as its mild

You like citrus scent

You like a face wash which brightens your skin

You might not like:

If you like face wash which give good lather

it acts as a cleanser too

My ratting:

I rate this product 3.5 out of 5

which facewash do you use? i would like to know :)
