Glam Glow Glowstarter

Glam Glow Glowstarter

I have been a fan of Glam Glow since its launch in 2011 and started using their incredible face-masks then. Over the last few years Glam Glow has become one of my favourite skincare brands. The products are beautifully packaged and they smell divine!

I have been using Glam Glow’s Glowstarter for 6 weeks now. I have all 3 shades; sun-glow, nude-glow and pearl-glow. I can wear all of them because they blend and leave a luminescence and I like mixing pearl-glow with my foundation. I have been using Glam-Glow daily and I love the effect. Its an illuminating moisturiser so I have replaced my daily moisturiser with it and it was great on holiday as it just leaves your skin glowing and I felt like it set my tan on fire, it just enhanced it perfectly that I could go bare-faced on good skin days. It doesn’t really give coverage so you would wear your foundation with it or mix it into your foundation.

It contains hyaluronic acid, plus vitamins and green tea for energized and moisturized skin. Added illuminating pearl particles help make you look instantly more radiant, blurring and reflecting light, so that all lighting is goodlighting. I love mixing it with my foundation as it gives you that flawless look.

Skin-moisture balance is restored by a combination of emollients including jojoba oil, shea butter and ceramides. A special skin-conditioning lipid complex is designed to help infuse skin with optimal hydration for a luminous finish. I do love the moisturiser however I stopped using it when I had a break out for a few days as the last thing you want is to add dimension to your pimples. This product definitely has a better effect on good skin, its also probably not ideal for very oily skin. I have combination skin and thought it was ideal and it would also be great for dry skin.

I also got the plumprageous lip plumper treatments which are insane! When I wore it my friends asked me if I had lip fillers so its obviously noticeable! It does sting after about 30 seconds for a good 5 minutes or so but it def gives you those bee stung lips and I like the natural colours too. Of course you can put a lipstick underneath it or even on top after your lips are plumped.

I love Glam-Glow and would highly-recommend these products!

Bioderma Sensibio Gel Moussant

BIODERMA Launches Sensibio Gel moussant in the UAE!

I am an advocate for BiodermasBioderma Sensibio Gel Moussant Sensibio H2O micellar water and was so pleased to learn they have added a new product to the range.

Is this product for you?

This product is specially designed for sensitive skin. More then 50% of you ladies have sensitive skin which means your skin is vulnerable and can be easily aggravated by sun, wind, pollution and stress. You may suffer from stinging, flushing or blotching and therefore you should use products that will keep your skin protected.

Benefits of using Sensibio Gel Moussant:

When used regularly, Sensibio Gel moussant works to support sensitive skin that is usually less resistant when it comes to irritants. Sensibio’s ingredients enhances the skins natural biology and increases the hydration rate by over 77%. It contains natural ingredients and is free of soap, fragrance, parabens, and colourants, to help relieve irritation and discomfort of the skin. The product is also hypoallergenic with a physiological pH and is non-comedogenic to avoid aggravating sensitive skin.

How to Use Sensibio Gel Moussant:

It should be used every morning and night by wetting the face and then applying with the fingertips until it is worked into a foam. I use mine with my Clarisonic however you can apply it with whatever technique you usually use. You should spend a few minutes massaging it on your face and then rinse off the foam with clean water. For a deeper clean, follow up with wiping the skin with Micellar water.

I love the product! It removed a full face of makeup quite easily and left my skin feeling squeaky clean but hydrated at same time. Just like the micellar water it amazed me that something so gentle can remove all of my makeup so easily.

The product will be available from January in all leading pharmacies in the UAE priced at 99dhs!

 

Tony Moly now available in Dubai!!

Presented in the most adorable packaging we have maybe EVER seen, Tony Moly products have finally come to our sandy shores! All the way from Korea, Sephora have picked up these bite sized beauties and they can be found across all Sephora Middle East outlets.

I am currently obsessed with the Panda Eye Stick, not only is it super-cute but it is also a great product! I love products that give an instant effect and the slight tingling sensation feels lovely on tired and puffy eyes. It is somewhat gentle and after a few seconds subsides, leaving you with a moisturising balm which you can pat lightly into the skin.

The range is very affordable, priced between 35-60AED  so if you haven’t already, get shopping!

TOP SECRET: We heard it through the grapevine that very soon Sephora will have an online store in the Middle East which we are absolutely thrilled about!! Products delivered to your door at the click of a button 🙂 YAAAAS!!! 

 

Sephora’s New Cushion Foundation

 

This new foundation is the future of make-up…If Korea’s doing it then we are definitely a few steps ahead of the rest of the world. It is like something I have never seen before, the formula is saturated in a cushion so it is a hybrid of a liquid foundation with the practicality of a compact format. I wondered about the application and how it disperses, whether you need a little of a lot but when I patted the puff onto the compact lightly, there was plenty of product transfer. I blended it into my skin and it had a lovely natural finish with a radiant glow.

I applied a little more to see if it was buildable and it certainly gives fuller coverage if you need it to. The aim of this product was to give the “I woke up like this” look and I have to say it did give a very natural radiant look. My only scepticism was that I am not sure how many applications you get from the product but I was told about 40 is average.

I love how innovative the product is, you should definitely give it a go as it may be the future of foundations! It is priced at a reasonable AED 115.

 

 

 

 

The Mascara, Sephora

 

20160225_085213-1They don’t just call it “The Mascara” by coincidence, the developer of this product explained when you have this mascara you don’t need to look for “The One” anymore because it takes care of all your needs. The formula gives definition while lengthening and giving your lashes a lift. If that wasn’t enough it guarantees 106% volume and length after 10 coats, and 195% more after 30 coats.

I could see the difference in volume, I took a picture wearing the mascara on just one eye so that you can see the difference and how it literally lifts my lashes to my brow! I am not one for falsies so I am really particular about my mascaras and I have to say this one is definitely a leader. I was completely in love with Givenchy’s Noir Couture but this one is taking the lead only because it does everything Noir Couture does but with a much nicer texture and formula that doesn’t cement to your lashes. Its more gummy therefore doesn’t flake and easy to clean off.

How does it do it?

  1. Ridges present in the bristles of the brush allow to properly grip the eyelashes to yield buildable results and a volume that intensifies with each coat.
  2. Thanks to its formula enriched with carnauba wax, it coats the lashes while being flexible.
  3. An acacia gum-based formula that secures and improves the resistance of mascara.

This mascara, all in one, offering intense volume, length and definition, and plus…it is long-lasting! That is why it is called THE Mascara.

It will be available in Sephora from March 1st and is priced at 95AED.
