My current skincare 2017

Hello
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?

My Favorite Makeup and Skincare Products of Year 2016


I know i am quite late to post my last year favourites but as they say better late than never so without further explanation here it is "My year 2016 favorite products"
Drumroll ☺



 Face

I am currently rotating two foundations in my makeup routine but the one which I particularly Enjoyed using was  this past year was holika holika sweet cotton bb cream. Its light in weight, smells like cotton candy and has very natural finish



Blush 

: MUA blush in Marshmallow  My fondness for this blush remains strong and I haven't found any blush which can replace this gem

Makeup Revolution matte effect concealer: this yellow based concealer is creamy and does not accentuates dry under eye area



Lips:

 Clazona matte Lipgloss
The local dupe of colorpop matte liquid lipsticks. Amazing lasting power and great pigmentation

Mua lip trio in temptress : I really like the balm like texture of the lipsticks and how one could create a sheer to very defined pout with these. Definitely one of most used makeup product of 2016





Eye shadow: the mos beautiful earth toned eyeshadow palette by MUA in shade Heaven and Earth

Eyeliner:
 Essence dip eyeliner  is by far the best liquid liner I have ever used. The felt dip is so soft and sturdy to line up the eyes. Its not waterproof but I like the formula

Mascara:
Essence Get Big Lashes

Gives the best volume  and length ever to the lashes I haven't found any other last which could perform as great as this mascara

Eyebrows :
 Sweet touch eyeliner pencil. This is long lasting pencil eyeliner which I use to fill in my eye brows. It does the job well and gives subtle definition to my eyes 👀

MUA pro base eye primer

and  Maybelline colossal kajal in turquoise 

for days when you want a little drama, this twist up eyeliner is the best option.

Face wash:

Duvi Stockholm green tea face wash 

I really enjoyed using this face wash all year long. It smells so good, lather well and cleansed skin without over drying it

Facemask:
 Sheet mask cracare best ever 

Of all the Korean sheet masks I used last year. This one without any doubt was the best. I moisturized my face well, didn't break out my skin. Brightened my complexion and smell nice too




Freeman oatmeal mask : To battle off my oily skin I used this mud mask. It performs quite well and reduces my pores appearance
 also kept the oil production under control too

 Face moisturizer :

 Oriflame tea tree

Having an over active skin which keeps on producing frightful amount of oil I rarely use moisturizer as it means clogged pores and comedones but this moisturizer gets absorbed into the skin immediately without leaving any. Sticky or oily residue behind

Circle lens :
Diamond green lens

Very vibrant. The design is beautiful and very comfortable to wear.
So these are all the products I enjoyed using last year
 lets see which new products will make it to the favorites list this year

Best and Worst of year 2016 in terms of Makeup and Skincare

Here is break down report of what I think are the worst beauty products of year 2016



Worst beauty products :




Freemans cucumber mask was the worst mask I have ever tried despite all the rav-views it got the mask does nothing to the skin. Its just like spreading water glue on the face and peeling it off. total waste of money , skin renewing and moisturizing are you kidding me???


Ponds toner is another product which turned out to be a disappointment. It didn't clean my skin or balanced out ph of my face in fact it just made my pores clog up and made my skin break out terribly
 the only thing good was its scent and thats it !!!

The very hyped about korean peel off lip tint was another waste of money, it didn't stain my lip a slight bit. the stain just bled on slight contact with water and made me look like a Dracula.


What I think was the best discovered product and what was worth the investment


I experimented with false eyelashes this year and discovered a lot of great affordable lashes in the local market and found the design which suits my eyes best





Best discovery was Korean sheet masks, these beauties are wonderful and give instant punch of hydration, give a very luxurious spa like feel





Good investment was the holika holika bb cream, its smells nice, long lasting and has medium coverage so looks natural on the skin





Also found a skin cream for my oily skin by oriflame which does not causes breaks out and has hydrating properties suitable for oily skin

Clazona matte lip gloss , our very own paksitani liquid lipsticks easy on the pocket , vast color selection and very long lasting

My new year resolutions for the year 2017



I plan to try more  Korean makeup and skincare products as I have been impressed with what I have tried last year

I also plan to write more quality blog posts this year

I am going to try to post makeup looks this year on my blog

Extend my skincare collection and add some good skincare products to my inventory

Just like last year I resolve to finish up more makeup products from my makeup collection

Try to gain at least 5 kg more weight (I am terribly underweight)

Stop buying makeup on impulse

Empties  for the year of 2016



admittedly a few empties ended up in the trash can which i forgot to photograph but the ones i managed to save in a bag are here in this photograph, i finished a full sized chubby stick, a lip balm, eyeliner, a full size face mask and a sun screen , the rest are sheet masks and sample sized creams i finished :)




thats all for todays post !!

what are your resolutions for year 2017?

Oriflame Love Nauture Purifying Tea Tree lotion for oily skin




if i be  honest with you guys the idea of slathering on lotion or cream on my face scares me primarly because i have oily skin and, creams having oily texture tend to block my pore and give me cystic acne plus blackheads

i do use coconut oil on my skin occasionally, trust me it works wonders but to use it under my foundation is difficult.i originally intended to try out clean & clear moisturizer but then my experience with the brand is not so good so i let that one pass

Oriflame is a Swedish brand  they have a very vast range of makeup and skincare products for every skin type so i decided to buy one for my self from the tea tree range



Price: around PKR 700 i think

Quantity: 50 ml

Packaging : its a small transparent plastic tub , i preffer tubes as they are more hygienic


the jar was sealed so i got the satisfaction of knowing that one has dipped their fingers in the lotion before me and the lotion is uncontaminated



About the product:

the lotion is pale green in color when applied on the skin it does not impart any color,
this lotion smells amazing and refreshing, i absorbs quickly once its applid and does not leaves any oily residue on my skin
i have been using this for almost a month and i am please to tell you guys that my skin didnt break out even once so yay for me



i wouldnt recommend this product to dry skin people as its not too moisturizing or hydrating
the hydration level is perfect for oily skin beauties

i am seriously impressed with this, despite the fact that this tiny lotion jar i expensive i am definitely going to repurchase this once again as this my holy grail skin care product



which cream or lotion do you use ?

Life Update post 04: makeup organization haul shopping …….







Hello.

I am so excited about the holy month of Ramadan, love all the parts of the holy month ranging from sehri to aftar and long taraweeh nights ,  and then finally shopping for Eid



I hauled a few items , tried out the timotei shampoo on a recommendation of a beauty blogger . I will admit it. This shampoo smells amazing and leaves my hair soft and shiny too





Nivea is a household name so I clearly don’t need to elaborate more about the cream except for the fact that I found a mini size jar and thought it would be very handy to throw it my college bag 



I also purchased another product from the brand oriflame and this time it’s a skin lotion I will be posting a review on this lotion soon 

Can’t get enough of Mua intense kisses lipgloss so just went ahead and ordered my third shade from the range this one is called kiss and makeup

I am running low on my current foundation so bought essence foundation in advance( review already lined up to be posted }. Purchased dip eyeliner on a whim because everyone was raving about it, so far so good





I went shopping with my friends a few days back and came across a lot of local brands who have wide range of makeup products in every color

Picked out some random nail colors




Purchased these Christine eyeliner/lipliners for RS 60 /- each , man they are so soft and pigmented



I don’t have much interest in cooking or baking but these kitchen related stuff looked so cute that I had to take a picture

That’s all for  today’s post

oriflame volume built mascara





if i ever get stranded on a lonely island and i am allowed to take only one makeup article with me it, without any second thought mascara is going to be might ultimate choice!!! why you ask me?
well i just love fluttery eyelashes and love how just a coat of mascara gives dimension and mysterios look to the eyes

About the brand

Oriflame is an international brand from Sweden their product range includes hair, skin and personal care, color cosmetics, fragrances

i purchased this mascara to try out the brand as i have heard a lot about them and seen a lot of positive reviews, this brand has been available in Pakistan for quite some time do the brand is very reliable 

Quantity : 11ml 


Price : about 350 PKR aprox

 

 



Packaging:


its a long purple tube with the details of the product written with pink. the cap secures quite well so no fear of mascara drying up  

it has a regular bristle brush not too fat or too thin






My thoughts:


this mascara is best suited for an everyday look, they dont make your lashes look too glamorous

in terms of volume i didnt noticed much difference on my lashes but it does lengthens up my lashes well
the formula is on the wet side. its not waterproof by any means so if you are looking for a waterproof formula then this is a big no for you. i didnt notice any clumping of my lashes the brush seperates the lashes which is a plus point , no flaking either .






i really like wearing this mascara to college as it gives subtle definition to my eyes without going over board i like to wear natural and light makeup to college. it stay on for long, does not irritate the eyes and the brush size reduces chances of messy application unlike the essence mascara which have fat brushes

 Availability :


available at daraz.pk  just4girls.pk and  oriflame agents on facebook
for the price i think one should buy this mascara

which mascara do you use for everyday makeup routine???


until next post




bye
