Ponds Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Day cream


Ponds is perhaps a brand as old as our grandfather or even older than that. I remember my father applying ponds cold cream( lemon scented) to my chapped hands in winters when I was in grade 1
Recently I was sent a few products in honor of ponds miracle journey ( a tribute to 100 inspiring pakistani women)



Today I will be reviewing the ponds akin renew age rewind cream. Now I am in my twenties so I think its quite early for me start on anti wrinkle creams that's why I gave this cream to my mom and  questioned her about the creams performance after a couple of weeks. So lets get into the review



Quantity:35 ml

Packaging:

Its a beautiful glass jar which has a shiny red cap. There is another protective plastic lid inside to retain the texture and freshness of this face cream

Review:

As it is labelled for day time use this creams has a smooth texture which absorbs right into the skin on application leaving slightly brightened up skin with a hint of shimmer ( must be the pearl powder) .it has a nice light pink color and rose scent. This cream is high on spf so it does feels slightly tacky/heavy on the skin



So far didn't witness any wrinkle reducing properties but she did found her skin noticeably hydrated and bright. My mom likes to wear this under her foundation as a primer. For a day creams this is good option as it has sunscreen in it but the whole age rewinding claim is a bit fickle

Until next post

Trendy Watches for Men in Pakistan


Today I am doing a fashion/ trend post and a with  little references to the past i.e history 

do you know clocks have been around since the beginning of time , Egyptians had them, so did Romans and Greeks they became a room decor in the form of a wall clock in early 16th century and were worn as wrist watches and pocket watches by gentle men in early 19th century , and since that time they have now become an essential and fashion statement for men 


wrist watches specifically reflect a person taste so when purchasing one, one should be very sure whether he likes the design and color moreover you shouldn't invest you money in a fake, because this just questions one credibility and overall ruins the whole impression 

here is what you should consider when looking for a watch 

bezel design round, square any other shape 
color of the watch , jewel toned, metallic, neon etc 
type of straps and the material used  leather, metal, beads, wood , plastic
its mechanic either its digital or a mechanical one 


there are some great luxury brand out there that makeup some stellar watches 
i will be discussing some in this blog post 

Casio Beside WR50M






who does not know about Casio? it such a popular Japanese brand that has been launching some very exquisite watches for a fairy long time 
one particular watch that caught my attention is the Casio bedside WR50M, the design is very elegant, it has leather straps  and the bezel is silver in color, it come s\in with three dials for telling time day and date, the whole concept is very classy and perfect for  pairing it with your work out fit, Pakistani dress and even a casual tee 
 



Rolex Skeleton Watch 



skeleton watch is what is an accessory a true minimalist would own , the design shows all the mechanics of a watch with all the unnecessary metal and details removed, the design is beautiful and mesmerizing 
Rolex skeleton watch comes with a beautiful gold casing and a leather strap,moreover the back is transparent so its really cool to see the complete working of a wrist watch with your own eyes 



 Rolex Skeleton Watch Price in Pakistan is 1750 rs on modashop , ah i am just dazzled by this  beauty,its absolute perfection

  Rolex Submariner Watch






another notable mention is Rolex submariner which is  a waterproof watch so if you are a very sporty person or sweat frightfully a lot or are like me and forget to take of your watch before going into shower this watch is definitely for you , available in gold and black tones , this is  designed for the younger generation

for more info on Rolex Submariner Watch Price in Pakistan , check this website they have very affordable prices 



Android Smartwatch





keeping in mind the current age of cool gadgets and advance technology this is is must have if you are a geek or technology savvy,  because this is the coolest watch around  it has the ability to record  call , comes with aphone book , bluetooth , message reminder , call reminder etc which saves one from keeping their cellphone with them all time.

Android Smartwatch Price in Pakistan is only 2750 rs, so hurry and grab yours before its out of stock


its not easy to buy original watches in Pakistan easily with a suitable/ affordable price tag most of the time there a lot of fake/duplicate watches circulating in the market,
if you have decided to invest in a watch be sure about your taste and style, because there is no point in purchasing a watch which you are never going to wear, watches have sentimental value so always dedicate some time to invest in a watch .

as a Pakistani you should also keep in mind your dressing preference, do you wear shalwar kameez or wear a suit or like to spend you r day in  a casual t shirt . 
give a lot of though in the type of straps you like your watch to have, the color and most importantly the design and the bezel 
thats all  i hope after reading this post you find your signature watch 

bye

hello

hi are you all doing, i am very excited about today's post because today i am sharing a review on my dream nail enamel color . yup that's right i have searching for this shade for fairly long time and imagine my delight when i found it at a local cosmetic store for a a very nominal price !!




price: 90 pkr

Quantity : 10ml

this cute and affordable nail enamel is available all across Pakistan, Clazona Beauty is a local Pakistani brand which have some very impressive makeup products, these Matte gloss is just amazing . the staying power is unbelievable  ,




ahem back to the review, the vial is made of glass and holds 10ml of enamel in it, the brush is pretty good and applies the polish well, no streaky lines thankfully,


the polish dries within 60 secs, i applied two coats for full opacity but one is sufficent to cover the color of your nails 

the nail paint does not chips fast, it lasted on my nails for a good four days which is great in my opinion 






as you can see in the pictures this is a beautiful nude color, cool nude to be more precise with hints of gray in in

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

Latest Trend in Fashion Jewellery & Watches for Women






Trends for women’s jewellery and watches has changed dramatically for the year of 2016. Time to pack away all the jewellery and accessories of the last year and make room for new items to take their place. Looking at the all the latest fashion weeks and trends featured in popular magazines it seems like stud earrings are going to be very popular this year so are the thick strapped chunky watches. So update your collection ladies !!!!


 

For ages women have been adorning themselves with jewellery made out of wood, various precious metals like gold and silver and precious stones and still do now, though gold still remains the favorite most preferred choice of jewellery, due to increased price of gold, ladies have started to buy artificial jewellery as they  are equally beautiful, less pricey and are more creatively designed. 

Women jewellery nowadays are available online at a very affordable price tag, these online stores have a  vast variety of studs, ,bracelets and necklaces for ladies to choose from 






I personally feel that a women outfit is incomplete unless a classic time piece (watch) is added to it. There was a time when the only wrist watches available came in very boring designs and mundane black and brown color but now the design and trends for watches have progressed to a new level of coolness, cute floral straps, chunky and punk designs and cool intricate patterns,not to mention the color choice has become vast too, now you can buy a watch in every color to co-ordinate with your dress or buy one which suits your personality or goes with your mood





Too lazy to walk to the store??? Well now you can buy women watch at the comfort of your home via  online shopping. Most of online stores show very detailed and clear pictures of their watches and the features are explained in detail too so experience is similar to that of shopping from shop only you don’t have to burn your fuel or walk to the store just add your dream watch to the cart and with a click of mouse, the watch is delivered to your address (you have to pay for it obviously, LOL)

Do you shop via online store often???
