Quench Your Skin’s Thirst With Sephora @sephoramiddleeast #sephoramiddleeast

Beauty is constantly being reinvented at the Sephora Girl’s Lab for all real ladies from real life! This summer, we’ve decided to get the perfect tan and perfect skin with must-have products and incredible textures. Get your daily moisture fix with a range of body, face and lip moisturizers with Made In Sephora this season.

MOISTURISERS

Because skin that is properly hydrated is the guarantee of a noticeably more beautiful complexion, Made inSephora skincare works to continuously provide it with the moisture it needs. The secret weapon of the eye moisturizer, instant moisture+ cream, intensive instant moisture+ cream and instant moisture+ lotion (or basically, the secret weapon of all our key products): hyaluronic acid, which acts like a sponge to harness and retain water. After receiving a boost and much-needed coaching, the skin once again learns to produce more of its own beneficial hyaluronic acid, thus revealing a smoother, softer and brighter complexion as time goes by. In short, more moisture = more beauty!

Instant moisture+ cream

AED 89/ QAR 88/ KSA 68/ BAH 6.9/ KWT 2.25

Of course we love the lightweight texture of this cream which features a booster complex of hyaluronic acid, but we love it also (and most of all) for its ability to leave the skin smoother, more radiant and more hydrated with continued use.

Intensive instant moisture+ cream

AED 89/ QAR 88/ KSA 66/ BAH 6.7/ KWT 2.25

Enriched with a hyaluronic acid booster and nourishing ceramides, this rich cream will delight all skin suffering from dehydration! And (this is really clever!), it helps the skin produce more hyaluronic acid to continually hydrate it for up to three days after the last use(1).

Liquid moisturizing skin concentrate

AED 109/ QAR 108/ KSA 89/ BAH 9/ KWT 2.75

This two-in-one product, a lotion/serum hybrid, is applied under a moisturizer to infuse it with hydrating power, brighten the complexion and refine the skin’s texture.

Head to toe Hydrator

AED 49/ QAR 49/ KSA 41/ BAH 4.1/ KWT 1.50

Smooth and non-greasy, this amazing do-it-all cream may be used as a cream or a mask: it deeply moisturizes the skin of the face, nourishes that of the body, and soothes that of the hands…and can even be used on the tips of hair to enhance their beauty! It really does do it all.. OK, so it won’t make us coffee, but still!

Super smoothing lip butter

AED 35/ QAR 35/ KSA 25/ BAH 2.5/ KWT 1

Contained within a cleverly-designed metallic retro-style tin, this colored lip balm repairs and nourishes lips while giving them a transparent, glossy sheen. An essential for any purse!

CC Care + Color SPF20

AED 85/ QAR 84/ KSA 58/ BAH 5.8/ KWT 2

When color and care join forces, the result is this pleasant surprise: a moisturizing CC cream that delivers a natural healthy glow and is infused with color-adapting pigments to leave the complexion more even-looking, reduce the look of imperfections, mask redness and make pores less visible. And, even better, it refines the skin texture with continued use.

Instant moisture+ lotion

AED 109/ QAR 108/ KSA 90/ BAH 9.0/ KWT 2.75

Fluid and ultra-lightweight, this lotion infuses the skin with hyaluronic acid, and, thanks to its silk powder-enriched formula, eliminates excess sebum and its associated shine.

Super nourishing lip balm

AED 19/ QAR 19/ KSA 13/ BAH 1.3/ KWT 0.75

Should we ever find ourselves craving soft, plump, moisturized and well-nourished lips, we’re reaching for this highly practical lip balm that may be generously applied as often as needed.

BODY CARE

Effective and multitasking, the addictive products from the body care range, which combine pleasure, effectiveness, sensuality and generosity, are sure to make us melt: from a super supreme body butter to a whipped cream body moisturizer, sugar cane body scrub and express body scrub & mask, we have our pick of decadent delights to indulge in freely!

Express body scrub & mask

AED 45/ QAR 45/ KSA 31/ BAH 3.2/ KWT 1.25

With a two-in-one formula for ladies who want to de-clutter their bathrooms, this dual purpose scrub/mask (which features a delicate powdery fragrance) is massaged into damp skin to eliminate dead skin cells. It can also be applied as a mask to dry skin: in one minute, the skin is purified and impurities are eliminated. The perfect way to achieve that “new skin” feel!

Sugar body scrub

AED 95/ QAR 94/ KSA 66/ BAH 6.7/ KWT 2.25

Indulge freely in this generous sugar scrub that glides onto the skin and eliminates dead skin cells without any risk of extra poundage. We just love its gourmand fragrance and formula concentrated in raw sugar and apricot oil.

Hydrating & energizing shower gel

AED 50/ QAR 50/ KSA 35/ BAH 3.5/ KWT 1.25

Because waking up in the morning can be rough sometimes, Sephora has created this generous-sized shower gel with a formula that is as uplifting as an aerobics class: it is formulated with Goji berry extracts (powerful energy boosters) and features an intensely invigorating fragrance.

Ultra nourishing shower cream

AED 55/ QAR 55/ KSA 39/ BAH 3.9/ KWT 1.25

An ultra-generous-sized pump bottle and a formula that contains 50% moisturizing cream? Now that’s what we’re talking about!

Express dry shampoo

AED 35/ QAR 35/ KSA 26/ BAH 2.6/ KWT 1

This shampoo is the ultimate fix for days between hair washings: it absorbs excess sebum from the scalp like blotting paper for the hair.

All-in-one nourishing oil

AED 59/ QAR 58/ KSA 44/ BAH 4.5/ KWT 1.5

We guarantee that you will love EVE-RY-THING about this all-in-one oil: it is formulated with baobab and jojoba oils as well as vitamin E to nourish, protect, enhance and delicately scent the hair, face and body.

Supreme body lotion

AED 89/ QAR 88/ KSA 71/ BAH 7.2/ KWT 2.25

A fluid, lightweight texture enriched with shea butter, a more-than-generous size, the ability to get dressed immediately after application and soft, supple and soothed skin as a result? We’re left speechless every time!

Super supreme body butter

AED 99/ QAR 98/ KSA 69/ BAH 6.9/ KWT 2.25

With its non-greasy formula enriched with shea butter (a nourishing champion), this smooth body butter treats thirsty skin to a much-needed hydrating break.

Whipped cream body moisturizer

AED 99/ QAR 98/ KSA 71/ BAH 7.2/ KWT 2.25

For a muy caliente summer, we suggest this luxurious cream with a whipped texture that leaves the skin satiny smooth. It also delicately scents it with a summery fragrance combining a marine accord with apple, watermelon and melon.

Very rich hand cream

AED 29/ QAR 29/ KSA 23/ BAH 2.3/ KWT 1

An incredible cream just for hands that nourishes their delicate, lipid-depleted skin and provides them with continuous moisture. It can also be used in a more targeted manner to treat dry, damaged areas. Its secret: shea butter.

Firmness boosting body moisturizer

AED 145/ QAR 144/ KSA 102/ BAH 10.2/ KWT 3.25

With its refreshing, ultra-sensual texture, its caffeine-concentrated formula, a powerful ability to sculpt the silhouette, its jumbo-sized jar, as well as its dual firming and moisturizing action, this cream spares no expense when it comes to comforting and toning the skin.

Always fresh deodorant wipes

AED 21/ QAR 21/ KSA 15/ BAH 1.5/ KWT 0.75

May she who has never been deserted by her deodorant at the worst hour of the day then cast the first wipe!

Super spray deodorant

AED 25/ QAR 25/ KSA 18/ BAH 1.8/ KWT 0.75

Convenient, super compact and ultra-discreet, this mini deodorant spray formulated with lemon essential oils really knows how to refresh in a subtle way.

Review : Murad Skincare Better Every Day!

murad-skincare

 

Hi beauties,

Talking skincare than for me keeping myself spotless eeerrr is always a struggle #storyofmylife….I don’t know whenever I try to strictly takecare of myself with store bought stuff like moisturizing or exfoliating I mustly breakout I don’t know why my skin gets so sensitive sometimes. Keeping it breakout free leads sometimes to stretchy dull lifeless skin and not mentioning the dry pores & fine lines…..moisturizing makes me breakout so sometimes balancing is very hard specially choosing the right products that’s why I mostly stick to natural oils and homemade exfoliators.

I have been using this Murad Skincare Better Every Day cleanse moisturize and protect kit which included Murad Daily Cleansing Foam, Murad Anti-Aging Moisturiser SPF 20 PA++ and Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen-Broad Spectrum 30 PA+++ which I think my skin likes! So lets talk about it in detail now…

Murad Daily Cleansing Foam

A mild foam cleanser claims tones and tightens your skin while removing dirt, oil and pore-clogging impurities… which I can notice too. As it says the Energizing Pomegranate Complex helps to defend your skin from daily free radicals while the Witch Hazel ingredient eliminates excess oil, without stripping the skin of its natural moisture revealing your skins natural radiance as the dual-action foam which cleanses and exfoliates the skin with AHA’s leaving your skin looking and feeling healthy, smooth and soft.

Overall a good cleanser my skin feels good after washing especially not stretchy…… so no stripping off my natural oils plus hydrated fresh face.

Murad Anti-Aging Moisturiser SPF 20 PA++

As this is going quite well with me so I have been reaching for this quite often these past few weeks A nice moisturizer , light cream formula that is easily absorbed without any residue and with added benefits of Spf20 . An anti blemish & anti aging formula which honestly feels very much like my normal moisturizer but in a good way… non medicinal smells or tacky textures which leave skin as an oil slick….. my skin feels good using this as I cannot use every moisturizer usually because I breakout very fast (acne prone skin problems sucks….) noticed that it contains salicylic acid which is helping my skin to keep clear ….the formula real good as its keeping my skin nourished and spot free..

 

Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen-Broad Spectrum 30 PA+++

 

As the sunscreen is so light-weight which mostly sunscreens are not ..I can wear this alone too without looking having some white oil paint on my face lolz… As it says that the Patented antioxidant-rich formula prevents signs of premature aging caused by environmental exposure by delivering powerful UVA/UVB protection. Micro-minerals provide an oil-free matte finish. Pomegranate Extract protects skin from free radical damage …Panthenol and Sodium PCA lock in moisture to keep skin soft and supple… I think enough said!

 

Very nice & light as I have used so many different sunscreens and always end up with breakouts the next day but not with this as its oil-free…so no heaviness plus smells good 🙂

Review : Boots Foaming Cleanser & Boots Cleasing Water

Boots-No7

Hi beauties,

Had been using some Boots products from some months, I think now is the perfect time to give my opinion on it…so before I start I may tell you I had been using the Boots Foaming Cleanser & Boots Cleansing Water..this is not my first time I had been using any Boots Lift & Luminate day & night serums for a while too which I loved as they were very light on skin, non-cosmedogenic and hydrating.

Boots Foaming Cleanser

The foaming cleanser comes in a cool light green pump plastic bottle very travel friendly also….comes out in nice foam ver latering and suitable for my kind of mix skin…. best thing not drying and I used it after cleaning my makeup just takes all the residue of makeup away.Has a mild fresh scent…I think I will get more for myself as it has that all that a good cleanser needs!

Boots Cleansing Water

This comes in a transparent see through bottle, has a rotatable press pump which can be locked…again very travel friendly…I am loving this cleansing water as its  gentle & takes off makeup in few swipes.No oily residue  is left after taking off plus can be used on eyes too doesn’t sting.I don’t wear a waterproof  mascara, so don’t know about that but the regular one just comes off easily with this. After wiping off my makeup I feel my skin hydrated, clean & fresh.

I posted some skincare range on my Instagram too, have a look below

I would definitely will be trying more from the skincare range as its so good quality and not much expensive. If you are looking to try a gentle skincare hygiene than I will say must try these!

Product Review : NEUTROGENA ULTRA SHEER DRY-TOUCH SUNBLOCK SPF 55

IMG-20131212-WA0018

Hi Beauties,

As winter is here …ahh loving the fresh cool breeze with the sunshine……what could be more blissfull here in middleeast than this…never want this winter to end.Winter here in middleast means lots of going out in daytime to enjoy the sunshine and cool breeze so I was looking for sunscreen which could help me in this weather. As winter  dries out a bit skin and I was looking for a moisturizer plus sunscreen which wouldn’t feel heavy on skin but protects. Honestly I hate sunscreen and any product which has it, as it leaves a white casting on my face and also it just breaks me out, so always so try to avoid it…..I know after reading this some of you must be yelling SPF is must  my skin will get …..but still I try to wear it but hate it 😉 I feel to wash it off instantly I apply and the smell eww…..

Still I keep giving a try to sunscreen products to see how my skin feels under it, so got this NEUTROGENA ULTRA SHEER DRY-TOUCH SUNBLOCK SPF 55…..I have tried the Neutrogena washes which I love so surely wanted to try this too.

The sunscreen is a moisturizer plus sunscreen so no lots of layering…the cream comes out thick not gooey thick but thick. I started with a small drop to see how my skin reacts to it, on applying first it feels heavy, sticky and as the cream warms up just spreads very easily and amazingly the skin feels dry with no stickiness….all absorbed…..I was looking for something like this was the hell fed with the sticky sunscreens which afterwards break me out like crazy.I liked the feel after applying it not sooo heavy, most importantly I din’t breakout …It has a pleasant smell, nothing overbearing. Overall after trying this I have changed my opinion about sunscreens. Will do recommend to those who hate sunscreens like me…..after all we must protect our skin.

Product Review : Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser & Neutrogena visibly clear 2-in-1

n1

Hi Beauties,

The weather is also on a change sometimes humid hot and sometimes nice cool here in Kuwait.With this change of weather my skin probably not only mine all of us you may agree goes through changes showing its own change…..am I using too much change 😉 jokes apart….. but my skin totally shows the ‘Change’ again 😀 .So to maintain its equilibrium i got introduced to the  new  Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit facial cleanser and  Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 wash+Mask i am using these both and really impressed my skin is quiet behaving less oil and open pores.Also less white heads which don’t bother to come up grrrh…..but i feel my skin is liking these two goodies as no breakouts 😉

The Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit facial cleanser is nice grapefruity smelling, mild, very lathering honestly leaves the skin completely clean, also not drying.Comes in a pump bottle, I use one pump for no makeup days works good and with makeup two pumps goes enough and believe me takes my all makeup off easily.Nice cleanser for  my skin as i have combination skin, found it very balancing. Best for daily cleansing, as it  contains vitamin C which just brightens the complexion and also  salicylic acid to keep your skin clear.

Ok now coming on the Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 wash + mask  i love this wash as it is mask and wash a multipurpose product. It has nice thick pasty texture with a mild scent, lathering ,can be used as a wash for everyday but  every once or twice  week i just apply a thin layer on my face and leave it on like a clay mask. Initially its sticky but dries without flaking and the stickiness goes as it dries..this takes like 10 to 15 minutes.After it dries I wash it off and my skin looks so fresh and clean pores minimized and skin very hydrated.Sometimes I just take a warm towel and spread it on my face and take the mask off with it with gently rubbing it off, it comes off very easily as it is a wash, without any mess and skin looks so glowy in minutes . I like it much because it gives deep pore cleanse also, as the mask takes away all the impurities on and from inside the pores leaving the skin healthy and blemish free double clear skin as it says…..  Can say a total salon facial at home, even my some stubborn white heads have diminished keeping the breakouts on the bay.. now its a must in my daily routine.

Its easily available in markets so do try i totally recommend it….. a thumbs up products ❤

Since yesterday The body Shop Honeymania line hit the stores here in Kuwait which I was eyeing on since it was launched, so got  The Body Shop Honeymania Body Butter its just so yummy floral, sweet, bit smelling like honey love the smell its really very lovely.

The consistency is like the other body butters thick and on applying on skin just melts in leaving the skin hydrated  perfectly moisturized thanks to the goodness of honey and the smell its divine… Its aroma is rich and floral….I love it, its so unique you got to smell it, I wana smell like it all the time 😉  I am really enjoying it and I think it’s great for these hot humid days when you just want a light scented mist surrounding you as it lasts for quite a long giving the feeling of freshness. Will definitely go for the other products in the line too.
