Lafine Vegetable Foam Cleansing

I’ve used cleansers with fruit extracts, but vegetables? Why not? I remember mom massaging tomato puree on my face when I was a teenager. I’ve also seen her using various vegetables pureed and added in the various face masks she prepares for her clients and everyone loves how their skin looks and feels afterwards. Vegetables…

Catalina Geo Color Capsule Makeup Base

I don’t use makeup base on a daily basis, not because I don’t like my makeup to stay but because I have not been able to find a good base that works for me. I was recently sent Catalina Geo’s Color Capsule Makeup Base which is a harmony of makeup base and essence. The product comes…

That’s when I received the very pretty looking sheep oil cream which contains Lanolin and 8 berry cream – Exciting!! The cream comes in a lovely gift pack with a cute bow on…

Ready, set, GLOW! – Rosalena

Skin oils have been my absolute go-to when it comes to moisturizing! I have converted so many friends from using regular cream moisturizers to facial oils and they’re all surprised at the difference it makes.

All Natural Cleansers: Carol Priest

I have fallen in love with cream cleansers ever since I tried one. Cleansing is the most important part of my daily skincare regime. I have mentioned about the double cleansing method I follow in one of my previous posts, which has worked wonders on my skin! Believe it or not, how your skin looks…

Gentle cleansing with Enzymes: Thelavicos

I’m usually very choosy when it comes to face wash and cleansers as I have dry to normal combination skin, more towards dry and not all of them work well on my skin. Foam based ones dries out my skin and cream-based ones make my T-zone too oily. Yet I want my face wash to be gentle and…

Sun protection is something I started giving serious attention to after moving to Qatar! I have a love-hate relationship with sun creams, you know how milky and greasy most of them make you feel. Who am I to blame? I’ve been trying this amazing sun cream from Kicho and I thought I must tell you…

Rossi Uvema: A Quick Look

How amazing is it when a woman’s frustration with the questionable ingredients in high street skincare brands and her concerns that “natural” doesn’t always mean natural inspires her to research on natural ingredients and thereby start her own skincare line? This is a true story! It’s even better when you have a husband who supports…

Organic Hair Fix: Tabitha James Kraan Haircare

I have the most confused wavy to straight hair, goes from super wavy (almost curly) to poker straight when it feels like. Sometimes it’s super easy to manage, but a nightmare on other days . I had super silky smooth hair till I moved to Qatar, in fact my husband says it’s my hair he…
