Review: Pixi By Petra Eye Products



Here I am, surprising myself and writing another blog post after a week from the previous one! Anyways, I hope you're finding these reviews useful and I will try to maintain the consistency on this page. Todays post is all about eye products from Pixi By Petra, which is a brand that I have been using since they had a store in Mall of The Emirates and then it closed down! Yes, you heard that right! but if you haven't lived in Dubai as long as I did - then you probably have no clue that Pixi did exist in Dubai a long time back and the store was shut down after 2-3 years of operation (sad times). So, today I will be reviewing some eye products that I have been testing over a month or so and I will let you know the hits and misses.

Review: GHD Gold Hair Straightener



Someone is back to her old habit of apologising for not posting in so long - that's me! Once again, my work and personal life has been taking over the majority of my time, but I will try my best to post at least a few times a month - even if its a short and sweet review. Today's post will be all about the GHD Gold hair straightener, which I have been testing for a month or so and I'm ready to share my honest opinion about it.

Review: Color Pop No Filter Concealer


I often get asked about the makeup product I would take with my on a deserted island and the answer is always the same - concealer! As someone who always suffered from dark circles, concealer has been my go-to product that I use on daily basis as under eye is my only problem area, so I can literally skip foundation and just dot concealer on that area. That being said, the search for the perfect concealer has been going on for a while and I have recently stumbled upon the 'No Filter' concealer by Colour Pop, or let's just say I heard many YouTubers raving about it and had to try it!

Review: Johnson & Johnson Even Complexion Range



Okay, so apologising for not writing a blog post for so long has become excessive and I should probably stop - because every time I promise to post weekly, it never seems to happen! Anyhow, today I'm back at you with a short and sweet review of the Johnson & Johnson Even Complexion range, which I haven't seen in the market before but I have been testing it for the past couple of weeks - as it promises results within 14 days.

Review: Skin Chemists Advanced Retinol Moisturiser


When it comes to night creams I like to invest in decent ones as I feel like they’re potent enough to hydrate the skin overnight, fight against ageing and reverse any damage that might have been caused to the skin during the day - due to sun and environmental factors. I have come across this brand called “Skin Chemists” on Lookfantastic.ae and I was extremely intrigued to know if this brand is any good, as I have never heard anyone else talking about it. Today’s review is going to be all about their Retinol advanced night cream, which I have been testing for around two month now.

Disclaimer: This blog post is not sponsored and the product was not sent to me by the brand. I bought this cream from my own money and this is my honest feedback about the product.

I won’t ramble a lot about the brand but in a nutshell - Skin Chemists is a British brand that has been in the market for more than 50 years, it was developed by a chemist who developed formulations that go beyond ordinary skincare and help the skin combat ageing and other concerns. They have a wide range of face and body products for both men and women - so there is something for everyone! 

Packaging:
The moisturizer comes in a tall white bottle with a pump and in my opinion it looks super elegant and luxurious. The pump makes it super easy and hygienic to dispense the product, which is always a plus for any product. However, I wish the bottle was more transparent so I can see how much of the product is left. 

Product/Experience:
This moisturiser is supposed to hydrate the skin, reduce black heads and acne, fight against ageing and improves the texture of the skin. The formula of this cream is extremely light weight on the skin and gets absorbed super quickly without leaving the skin feeling overly greasy. I would say this can be used by all skin types including oily and sensitive.Also, it has a flattering and very faint scent that isn’t overpowering or offensive. I have been using this cream for almost two months and I can definitely see the difference it has made. My skin did not breakout in these couple of months even though I’m currently going through a lot of work stress and not maintaining the healthiest lifestyle *guilty*. Also, I can definitely notice the improvement on my skin texture and I wake up the next day with radiant and healthy looking skin. This is mainly due to this product containing Retinol, which helps eliminate all these skin concerns and fight the early signs of ageing. 

Overall opinion: 
I’m really enjoying the advanced retinol moisturizer by Skin Chemists as it did deliver what it claimed and I can definitely see myself repurchasing this product. I’m also intrigued to try other products by the brand and will keep you posted if I do purchase anything else in the future.

Note: Skin Chemists Advanced Retinol Moisturiser is priced at AED 220 from Lookfantastic.ae

Review: Catrice Cosmetics



I didn't expect myself to keep my promise and write another brand review this week - but here I am amazing myself once again! Today's review is about Catrice cosmetics, which is a drugstore brand that I have been eyeing for a while and finally got around trying it in the past couple of months. Tati (Youtuber) has always been raving about this brand, saying they are of good quality and can server as dupes for high end products - and today I will be sharing with you my hits and misses from this brand.

Review: Essence Makeup


I'm not sure how many times have I started a blog post with an apology for taking too long to post - but this is just another one! Life has been so hectic from my side and I barely find time to blog about anything - but I'll do my best to post more often. The good news is - I have been trying tons of products in the past month or so and hopefully some blog posts are coming your way. Today, I'm going to review products from one of my favourite drugstore brands, Essence cosmetics and I'll share with you my favourite and least favourite picks.
