This is a product that gets a lot of hype.I have hardly ever heard anything too bad about it.So when i finally  got my hands on it , i decided to really test it before forming an opinion.I have been using it weekly for over two months now and i think now i am ready to review it properly.

Lemon power

Winter weather brings with it dry flaky skin and rough hands , feet.Even as a teenager i never had as much issue with skin care in summer as i had in winter.All of my skin care regimen suddenly stopped doing its job and i never knew how to handle this problem.Until i discovered the power of this natural jewel.

Its finally winter in Karachi.We've had the first rainfall of the season and the customary sweaters and shawls and khaddar collections are out in full bloom.So i decided it was time for a shoe haul.

Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 instant Soothing serum

When i tried the Olay total effects cream last year i got a sample size of this serum along with it.I tried it and was pretty impressed with the results.But for some reason i never got around to buying the full sized product till now.

This is supposed to be anti aging instant smoothing serum.I use it under my night cream / moisturizer.The plastic pump bottle contains 50 ml of product , which theoretically should last up to a month with daily use.

Eid ul Azha 2014

 A belated Eid Mubarak to all . This Eid post is slightly late but better late than never right? ;-) So Like always Allah blessed us with a very fun celebration this time around as well  ,  and it became extra special because we welcomed our niece into the world as well & on chand raat no less ;-) The neighborhood kids had a blast parading their qurbanis from one end of the street to the other.For a while there the whole street looked like a makeshift zoo.

Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan oil Leave in Treatment

Quite a few ladies on Facebook are selling Avon products . So if you are in to the scene of buying beauty products from Facebook than the brand wont be a stranger to you.

I got this product mainly because i wanted to give something with Moroccan oil as an ingredient a try.

A trip to the famous Sunday Bazar

I have lived a good portion of my adult life in the beautiful city of Karachi.This city has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment.Parks , shopping malls , cinemas, restaurants , and of course the amazing coastline . But to me the most unique thing about Karachi are its eclectic weekend bazaars that sprout up around different parts of the city on Saturday and Sunday.The best known of these is the Sunday market in DHA.
It has everything that a person can desire , from the mundane (fruits , veggies , grocery items ) to the exotic (antiques , jewellery , electronics). Shoes , bags , scarves , clothes you name it .It is a bargain hunters paradise.The only thing i wouldn't advise buying is the makeup.Its all FAKE.If you are from Karachi and have never visited than you are missing a real treat and if you are a visitor , don't miss a trip here for anything

Pink is the name of the game :-)

Summer is the time for new beginnings , of balmy weather and soft hues.Karachi (the love of my life) sort of over compensates for the weather every year and sometimes "balmy" gets down right unpleasant.Not many colors can pull of cool and calm , when the weather is anything but.Unless its a shade of pink.Here we share a few pinks from our humble collection , which we are totally in love with :-)

Nair Wax Strips

When it comes to this kind of strips , the market is flooded with multiple brands.In all shapes & sizes and with varying prices.I recently bought a pack of the ones from Nair and after using them a few times i have come to the conclusion that using these pre made wax strips is sort of hit and miss .

Boots essential cucumber eye gel

This is another eye gel that we have been trying for the last few weeks.It is a pretty straight forward product in my opinion so i think i have got the hang of what it is all about even though i still have to finish the whole tube.

Summer Makeup Essentials

Summer is the time for new beginnings and a complete change in skin care priorities.Where winter is all about moisture and keeping the dry and damaged skin at bay , summer is about going light and not trying so hard :-)
Summers here in Karachi are all about sunshine (sometimes brutally so) . Oily T zones , acne and sun burns become the disasters to avoid by anyone who cares about their skin.
Below i have compiled a list of all the products that i use on a daily basis during summer months.My priority is nice looking , hydrated skin.

Clinian's eye and lip intensive balm

Clinians is not a brand i was familiar  with before trying this eye cream. But i decided to get my self two of its eye creams just to see how my skin reacted to the products and if i should replace my current eye cream.

Garnier Skin Naturals Fairness Facewash

Since Garnier has become available locally in Pakistan , a wide range of its products have flooded the market.The most prominent ones being from the "fairness" range .We got to try this face wash purely by luck because we got this one instead when we ran out of our regular Clean & clear.

E.l.f eye brushes

I got these two e.l.f eye brushes a while back but i didn't want to review them before i tried them a few times first. I must confess that this is my first purchase from e.l.f brushes and I was really looking forward to the experience.I got two , a blending brush & a smudge brush.

Skin care Haul Post

Hey Ladies,
Sorry for being MIA for the last few months but with exams on the horizon didn't have any choice but to cut back on blogging.We were running low on bunch of stuff so we treated ourselves to a small haul from "just4girls". Here is what we got......

Palmer's Olive oil Formula with vitamin E spray

Frizz is a big problem when living in hot and humid climate such as ours.Hair needs a lot of moisture and conditioning in order for it to look even remotely presentable (at least mine does). I got "Palmer's Olive oil conditioning spray" in the hopes of finding something that would do the job without weighing the hair down.

Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion

Vaseline is a brand that is very readily available in Karachi (as well as the rest of Pakistan). Vaseline petroleum jelly is a house hold necessity in my opinion.The brand has quite an extensive body lotion range as well.Every time i go to the mall i see a new one.This one i got a few weeks back to combat the dryness of the weather.

Artdeco Soft Eyeliner in 10 Black

A good kohl liner is a necessary part of anyone's make up arsenal , whether its summer or winter. I have tried a bunch of eyeliners over the years , from various brands but there is always something to gripe about. This time around i was in a hurry and wanted something without the added wait that comes with pre ordering stuff through facebook or asking a friend to get it for me from abroad.So i went on and had a look.They are stocking some really nice products and its always fun to browse around.But i had to decide on something that was good , affordable and available for instant delivery.So after alot of research i decided on "Artdeco Soft Eyeliner in Black".
