The Skin18 Series – Part 1

Hi my angels!

Here, I bring you a skin care review series, which you all are absolutely going to love.
I have been on a small virtual trip to Korea, thanks to the Skin18 😀

I am a skin care freak and always on the hunt for good products. Sheet face masks are quite a trend now, and like every girl, I too was drooling over them; searching for some good outlet to shop from. But Skin18 solved this by offering a generous set of amazing Korean skincare goodies and I am really excited to share my experience.

Before I begin my review, let’s just talk about Skin18. It is a beauty haven dealing in a huge variety of Korean cleansers,toners,facial masks (as in, hydrogel, wash-off, sheet) , BB creams, CC creams; you name it, they have it. What I loved about them is that they know what one’s skin require and what product would suit better to what age. Also, their website is really well categorized owing to the skin-type and formula. So, a big thumbs up 🙂

As for the review, I got 4 products out of which I’ll be sharing my experience with one of them.  So today,  I bring forth the Fresh Fruit Avocado Real Natural Mask Pack.


This is a sheet mask from the  brand Mirum which contains avocado extracts and is my most favourite out of the 4. The results were evident instantly and phenomenal. I kept this pack in the fridge for some time before using so that I enjoy a good cool facial therapy. The Skin18’s website provides every bit of information, as to what ingredients it contains, salient product features and how to use it (visit LINK).
As it states, I after thoroughly cleansing and toning, attached this  mask as per my face contours and put some earphones on and ignored the world (Guys, face pack and music is a deadly combo,haha). Upon application, it has that cooling sensation which wasn’t tingly or irritating, but soothing and I kid you not, it had a gorgeous fragrance.

After about 20 mins after the essence has completely soaked in, I put it off and to my surprise did not feel any greasiness or that tacky feeling. The essence worked its magic as I  witness an instant boost and lift to my skin and above all I looked fresh and felt fresh. My skin looked clearer and glow-y.Let me tell you guys, I have an oily skin, and this matches it perfectly. Absolutely loved the hydration it left off it.  I believe a regular usage of this face pack can do wonders for one’s skin; I must stock up on this guysssss! ^_^

P.s: It is perfect for oily skinned beauties, like me 🙂

Price: $1.40

See you guys real soon,
Love&prayers ❤

Summer DIY!

Summer is that kingdom, of which Karachi is the king!
And I was a happy commoner residing within it until the  King declared war with its own people, defying the love and loyalty we have always had to offer. 😦

My slogan: Beat the Heat!
Their slogan: Heat shall prevail!

During the face-off on the battle ground, they started shooting their oily missiles, but fear not friends; I outnumbered them! 😉

Here, I bring you one strategy to combat the opponent if any such thing happens to you :).
egg

Grab an egg, separate the whites from the yolk and  apply the whites evenly onto your face. Let it dry. Apply a second layer and again leave it to dry. After you have applied the third layer and that too has dried, wash it off thoroughly with water. And voila, the victory shall be at your feet ;). You will slowly experience a reduced oil-skin and upon application twice a week, a drastic change shall be evident.

I hope this helps you out and you get your due rights like me :D. Please do share your experiences in the comment section with me!

Love you all!

Wishlist 2016 – Part 2

Hello lovelies,

Let’s just dive directly into the post. Today, I shall discuss my discovery “Lashem” with you all!

So what is it and why am I sharing with you all. Well, here you go:

The Lashem is a cosmetic brand which aims to cater to women in the most natural way possible. It caught my eye for the fact that its paraben and cruelty-free; such brands are in rarity and I am happy to find an addition to my list of cruelty-free products :).

It has some a-m-a-z-i-n-g range of  anti-aging creams, mascara, and eyelash/eyebrow boosters and I am already drooling. Let’s begin what exactly I am drooling on,

Ultimate Lash Enhancing 5 piece set with gift bag:
This is a bundle of items from which I am literally unable to get my eyes off. It has everything a woman could ask for. This bundle consists of:

Colour Strokes Liquid Eyeliner – Blackest Black:
Who doesn’t like a good black winged liner? I am crazy about it, and would love to see what magic does this product brings to my eyes. 😉

Extensions In A Bottle Mascara With Lash Enhancing Serum:
Not everyone is blessed with long and thick lashes and unfortunately I am one of them. And if this brings that fullness to my lashes just as any falsies; then what more do I need in my life 😀 So, here it goes into my wishlist 😀

All Eyes On You Eyelash & Brow Enhancing Serum:
Owner of light brows and thin lashes, I therefore need it desperately!!!

3 In 1 Eye Bright:
I am a brown girl, and dark circles are one common trait in us. So naturally, 3 in 1 Eye bright goes straight into my wishlist …. 😀

Lashem Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer:

This is something I’d love to present to my mother. So yeah, I’ll definitely get my hands on this and see does this really proves to be useful in reducing the wrinkles which my mother wishes to reduce.

5002_pictureperfect_plainopen_1The Lashem is based in United States and can be shopped at https://www.lashem.com/.
I wish, wish and wish that Lashem very soon make its way to Pakistan so that I and many other girls like me can enjoy and purchase easily the amazing range it has in store.

Have you tried the Lashem products? Share your experiences in the comments section below beauties 🙂

Much love,

Food For Your Face – Review

The town’s ablaze with firefly!!!!
The firefly girl is doing wonders!!!!

The girl who was enthralling all of us with her quirky and creative spark is on the road of making it big in the arena of beauty. Yes you heard it right!

“Food For Your Face” is a venture by the Firefly girl Varah Musavvir which aims to cater girls and women across varying age groups with different types of skin with its all-natural and herbal skin care range. Prepared from natural and wholesome ingredients with essential oils infused in, this range has already managed to get its wing into many vanities in no time.

And I am one of the proud owners of such a vanity 😉

I bought 2 cleansers, namely Crange Maker – touch of cranberries and orange and Magical Mulberry – lovely floral and fruit infused from “The Crazy Cleanser” range and 2 face packs, From Cleo with Love (tuberose) and A Tangerine Affair (citrus pomegranate) from “The Fixer Upper Face Packs” range, each for PKR 650.

1
If you ask me to rate the two cleansers, I’d rate Magical Mulberry as 1st and Crange Maker as 2nd.  Both suited my oily skin, but it was Mulberry who did a fine job; I felt my skin clearer and even with it the most.
I have pigmentation around my mouth area, and with these cleansers I visibly noticed them getting lighter and can see my skin quite even now. I literally felt as if every dirt and impurities has been flushed off of my face. Yay! So a big thumbs up to these crazy cleansers. (y)

Now come the face packs/masks. Well… . My sister grabbed the “Tangerine Affair” before I could get my hands on it so yeah I suggest you guys take a look at her blog to know her experience with it and also her take on the other products HERE.

As for me, I am head over heels over “From Cleo with Love”. I use it with fuller’s earth (Multani Mitti). What I do is mix this face pack with rose water and fuller’s earth, initially, it was an experiment, but now it is something I swear by. I thought it would leave my skin dry, but to my surprise it did not happen at all. It worked perfectly and my skin actually felt moist and revived.

What common among these products is the yummy-licious fragrance! You are absolutely going to love ‘em. The balance is just right. You’ll feel your face radiant , your air afresh and your mood all lightened up. 😀

All in all, the products are finely milled and in my view you are not going to get such a treat of all natural and herbal skin care products in an amount of PKR 650 and that too home-made under extreme care. You can manage the consistency as per your liking; you can use it in so many ways. The firefly girl and Mama firefly’s invention are indeed L A U D A B L E!

P.s: I advise you all to please do a patch test before you begin using them on your pretty faces as what works for me might not work for you.

It’s All About Almond Oil!

Hey everyone,

All these years, I have been on the run for that perfect moisturizer that gets my skin smooth and non-flaking. I have a skin that gets super oily in summer and super dry in winters; it gets dry to such an extent that it starts to come off as flakes and gives that tacky eek if I apply anything on my face.

That’s when the Almond Oil came down as an angel! 🙂 Below is the picture of what I use:

rsz_12714020_1037547392968667_972147689_n
Mundial’s 100% Pure Almond Oil.

Previously, the use of almond oil was only limited to hair, but about a month ago I started using it on my face as a moisture every night and the results were phenomenal.
My skin got back to normal, felt soft and smooth. I visibly noticed a clearer skin and an even skin-tone too. I have a few spots on my chin that my zits left, and this almond oil is doing a fairly good job in clearing them; they are much lighter now. ^_^

Almond oil works well for me for both hair and skin. In fact, I highly recommend it as a moisturizer and I am sure it won’t at all disappoint you!

Some essential tips:
-Make sure your face is properly cleansed before you apply it as a moisturizer.

-Do not use bitter almond oil for its purpose is of only scent or flavour. For therapeutic purposes, it is sweet/pure almond oil, which does the job.

If you give it a shot, do share your experience with me in the comments section below lovelies. 🙂

Much love,
Zk.
