WISHLIST ~ Swooning Over Some H&M Beauty Products

h&m beauty

H&M has come out with a whole beauty range recently and wherever I turn I hear raving reviews about it. Before this official launch, H&M was doing bits and pieces of beauty, skincare and mists but I never heard or read anyone talk much about it. I bought their gel eyeliner once and I wanted to grab one of their palettes that had neutral eyeshades and almost every blush color. I never got around to doing that and I doubt they stock it anymore.

Today I thought to make up a wish list of everything beauty by H&M I’ve been meaning to purchase soon. I didn’t get a chance to go to the store and explore everything yet but I’ve been going through the beauty catalogue and swooning over a few pieces.

1- Concealer – RO 4.500

I love my Maybelline Fit Me concealer damn too much but I was thinking its time I try a new. H&M concealer has caught my fancy. If I find the formula worth giving a try this one will be going in my basket right away. I believe I will be shade Desert.

2- Eyebrow Pencil in Natural Black – RO 2.900

I believe it’s about time I start filling in my mismatching eyebrows as I am very annoyed with their current shape and no parlor has been able to fix them yet. H&M eyebrow pencil seems like a good one because of the little spooly at the end.

3- Soft Eyeliner Pencil in Rich Cocoa – RO 2.900

I haven’t tried pencil eyeliner yet and I don’t see many brown eyeliners so yap prolly will give this one a go.

4- Colored Eyeliner – RO 3.900

What would be my year if I don’t buy a few colored eyeliners? The last I bought was in sparkly blue from Rimmel. Now I am eyeing three from H&M; (left to right) Goldie Luxe, Into The Blue, and Azure Thing. They are all pencils. I might buy one of them for a trail and if I like it enough I’ll probably go buy some more.

5- Eyelash Curler – RO 2.900

Your homie here doesn’t own or have tried an eyelash curler yet and this one seems super pretty.

6- Colored Mascara – RO 6.900

Because why the heck not? 😀 I like unusual things too, y’know! Lolita Purple and Nephrite Blue, I’m coming to get ya.

7- Cream Lipsticks – RO 6.900

I swatched a few of their lipsticks the last time I was in H&M and I’ve been mad about them since. Left to right; Rosehip Jam, Rambling Rose, Deco Ruby and Heyday. I don’t know if my H&M has matte lipsticks yet. Any recommendations will be more than welcome in the comment section below.

8- Dry Shampoo – RO 2.900

I didn’t spot a single dry shampoo in any store yet and now H&M has one to offer so yap I have to give it a go.

9- Micellar Water – Makeup Remover – RO 3.900

This is on my Maybe list. I don’t know how I feel about it yet. Anyone has given this one a go?

10- Spray Travel Bottle – RO 1.900

Because it’s very cute and I want to have it, Nuff said.

Is there anything I need to add to my list? Let me know about your favorite products from H&M so far in the comments below! 🙂

Have a nice weekend, fellaz!

REVIEW ~ Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

RT MCS (1) (famtaq.com)Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Image: Left – before it’s damp || Right – after it’s damp

Beauty blender and sponges have been in the market from a while but I never really cared about them. I thought they are just another way for the cosmetic companies to draw us in. I gave in around October because my curiosity wouldn’t let me be. I decided on Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and damn did I choose well.

Packaging

It’s made out of foam and has a flat surface on the top for the whole face and a pointed tip at the end for corner of eyes and nose.

So far it’s only available in orange color.

How to Prepare the Sponge

The best way to use it is by damping it. Just take it under the tap of running water. Let it soak the water and then squeeze it out a couple of time. You will notice the sponge gets bigger in size. Yes, that’s what it is supposed to do, don’t worry. Squeeze out all the excess water before using it.

It’s not necessary to be very gentle with squeezing the water out but I would suggest be gentle enough that you don’t end up tearing it apart or getting a mini heart attack thinking that you did.

You can use the sponge dry too but I have noticed that doesn’t give the best finish.

Application

The application is similar to the brush. Once it’s wet (or dry), you can take your foundation as you normally do with a brush; put it on your hand first to warm it, or dot it over the face or take it on the flat surface of the sponge. It doesn’t matter which method you go for. Then start to dab, stipple or rub in the foundation like you would do with a brush. Use the flat surface for flat areas and the tip to reach the corners.

I don’t prefer using the sponge dry but if you do, the method is the same though I would really suggest you not to take the foundation on the sponge and then apply it on the face.

Finish

Damp: It gives a well blended and flawless finish. I have used it with both liquid and cream foundation and also with a foundation that doesn’t give you more than two minutes before it sets in.

Dry: It gives a good finish but you might find some streaks if you don’t use the sponge right as paint brush motions. That’s why I prefer the damp method. It’s absolutely fuss free and you don’t even need to be careful with how you go about in on the face, lol. It does the job for you. #LazyGalAlert

After You’re Done Using It

This sponge takes time to dry after you’re done with your foundation. Keep it out to dry completely before storing it back.

Bonus

It can be used with pretty much any product making it a multi-tasker. It’s perfect with cream contouring, blush, highlighter, anything really. I have read a post where the blogger does her complete makeup with it and the final result was full blended and perfectly done face. I think it was a sponge challenge or something. I can’t seem to find the post now or I would have linked it up. Anyway, you can YouTube it and you will find a gazillion videos on it.

Shelf Life

It has a very short shelf life. It’s suggested to change it after every three to four months. I am pretty sure none of us will be listening to this suggestion.

Cons

I have noticed that it retains some of the water after you damp it and no matter how much you squeeze it, it doesn’t come out. I think it drinks up a little of the foundation too. Not too much but enough to stain its surface. I believe this will make us change our sponge after a while lol.

What I Don’t Know About

I really need to learn how to clean this sponge because as you can notice so far I am not able to take out the foundation stains and yes that’s driving me insane. Honestly, I didn’t get much to look around the internet on how to do it. If you have any easy methods please help a sister in need and leave them in the comments below.

~

I am absolutely in love with the Miracle Complexion Sponge. Before using the sponge I thought its okay if the foundation goes a little streaky on the face but after using it I know that’s not supposed to happen. I am highly recommending it to everyone. Give it a go and I am sure you won’t be disappointed.

PS. Thanks a ton to Makeup Medley Muscat for getting me the sponge. ❤

Until next time people,

Byeee xx

REVIEW ~ Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Nude Foundation with SPF 20

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I have been crying about Muscat’s hot weather in almost every post since April and let me just do that once again. Our summer was horrendous this year reaching 50+ degrees. It was too hot to even breathe outside or have a comfortable life inside the house. I wilted away all these months cocooned indoors whereas all I really wanted this summer was some quality beach time. boo hoo!!!

With such ‘amazing’ weather came the unpredictable makeup issue. I thought I had it under control because my skincare routine was going great and my Maybelline Fit Me foundation was doing amazing until my face became an oil zone – literally. My makeup was being such a problem and my foundation would just never stay on for more than two hours. That’s when I decided to try a new drugstore foundation and I had Rimmel in my mind. I wasn’t sure which one of their ranges to go for because I tried some of their foundations and wasn’t much impressed. Then one day I visited Top Note in Lulu Hypermarket Seeb and saw a great deal on Rimmel Lasting Finish range and bought it on a whim.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr Nude SPF 20 comes in a round transparent glass bottle with a round white slanted cap that has the Rimmel logo on top. It has a pump red in color to extract the product. Pumps are always a plus with me because they make getting the product out of the bottle easy and hygienic. I doubt the bottle is as sturdy as Maybelline Fit Me but then again I did not get a chance to throw it on the tiled floor of my room yet (and I really hope it never comes to that).

Rimmel Lasting Finish is one foundation that does everything it claims. It has a medium coverage that can be built up; a process that I really don’t prefer with any of my foundations because I don’t like the constant reminder that something is on my face. It is of creamy consistency, a satin texture and its formula ensures your skin is hydrated under all that makeup. It is light weight and blends effortlessly. It blurs the spots but not completely so it seems like you don’t have much of anything on. The best thing however about this foundation is that it does NOT budge in hot weather. The line up there that says its ‘sweat, heat and humidity proof’ is very true. I have had it on for more than 8 hours in all that 50+ heat and it stayed and so did all of my makeup. A very big thumbs up to Rimmel for achieving this very impossible task.

I have it in shade 100 ivory. One full pump of product alone is enough to cover all of your face and neck. I take two small pumps of it and that does it for me. It applies well with both a brush and fingers. Its creamy consistency gives you some time to fix it before it settles in completely. It has a strong smell to it that takes a little getting used to but it doesn’t stay for long after you have applied it. I have not noticed any transfer of product while using it so that’s always great. Another thumbs up, Rimmel, my friend.

Super Tip: if you are applying this foundation with a brush, make sure you wash it every week because it can take some time to get it off those bristles especially if your brush hasn’t been washed for two or more weeks. #guilty

There are a few things I want to let you guys know. Give this foundation a little time to settle in if you have fair/desi skin. When I started using it I would freak out every time because I would find it too white on my face. I have fair skin but there is no way I would ever want to leave the house looking like I just dipped my face in a huge bowl of white powder. I wanted to return it after the first time I tried it but after using it for a few times I realized it takes a little time for this foundation to settle on your face and then it’s all awesome. So 10 to 15 minutes and it will look fabulous. Another thing, they have very limited range of shades so keep your fingers crossed when you go to pick yourself a bottle. If you really love the formula and are not a lazy bum like me, I would suggest buying two shades and mixing them to create your shade.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Nude Foundation has been my summer savior and I love it for that. The weather is changing here in somewhat autumn now. I am still enjoying this foundation and looking forward to how well it will work in the winter if it gets cold.

Until next time,

Ciao! 🙂

Eyeing Some Drugstore Beauts! x

Drugstore Wishlist - famtaq

Guys, we are just two days away from October… what?! Where did most of the year go? 😐 Let me know if you have any idea!

I compiled a wish list for today’s post. I went to Center Point a while back and saw so many things I liked.

1- Blue eyeliners are having a major moment right now and if you know me at all you would know how obsessed I am with the color blue. Maybelline is doing some of the best blue eyeliners. They have a liquid pen liner, pencil liner and kajal. I have tried all of them. The liquid pen gets the job done in one stroke, the pencil liner has a lasting texture and the Kajal is plain gorgeous. I can’t decide which one to pick and which one to drop (so I might buy them all).

2- I am into Mascaras a lot these days. I love my Essence Get Big Lashes mascara but I will be finishing it soon so to replace it I have two options. I am curious about Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara as almost every blogger/youtuber is raving about it so that’s one.

3- I also had my eyes on Max Factor mascaras especially their Masterpiece Transform from a while now. Let’s see which one I pick. (Pretty sure I am picking both!)

4- I am not really that crazy about eye shadows but ever since I have seen NYX Show Girl I can’t really think about anything else. It’s a pot of copper goodness. I can’t wait to try it on my lids. I’ll prolly be sweeping it all over. Totally in love with this shade.

5- Bourjois is slowly becoming my favorite brand. I already have a blush from them in Golden Rose and love it. I swatched Love Struck Rose and have been dreaming about it ever since. It will be an impulse purchase if I get it.

6- I haven’t really stopped talking about Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick ever since it came here. I have tried one of their bold shades – pink. Pros; the finish is matte and pretty. Cons; It doesn’t go opaque in 1/2/3 go, smells a bit weird and feels like you have oil on your lips. Not sure if I will buy it but I will try the red one. If it is any good I surely will.

What’s on your wish list these days?!

Edit Note: Center Point Muscat is offering Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for RO 6.800 with a free black gel eyeliner. How much more convincing would one want to get this now? 😉

A Bit of Shopping

The New Things + First Impression

I did a bit of shopping in last two weeks but they are all random bits so I decided not to do a proper haul post. I will mention them here in pieces though. Let’s start with these two.

Clean & Clear Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser (RO 1.890)

I am almost done with my Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser (Click here for my review about it!) and I wanted something to replace it. First I thought to repurchase it but then I saw Clean & Clear one and thought to give it a try. So far it has been amazing. It is gentle, tingles in a good way and leaves behind a clean skin. I have been using it for over a week now and really like it so much that I have forgot to finish my Neutrogena cleanser. #reminder You will hear all about it soon in a few weeks time.

Wella Pro Series Heat & Shine (RO 2.200)*

I haven’t really spotted a heat protector in any stores here so when I saw Wella Heat & Shine it was a must-buy. My hair is in a bad state right now and the hair fall won’t stop. I thought to do as much as I can to protect whatever is left of my once luscious locks. I have tried this spray just once before I blow dried my hair. The result was pretty good. My hair didn’t go rough. They were smooth, soft and had a shine to it that was never there before. Let’s hope the result is consistent. I will do a post as soon as I have formed a solid opinion.

*You can get it for RO 2.050 from Carrefour

Guys, I might be blogging a bit on and off for the next couple of days because I am having a bit of an eye situation here. Nothing serious, they just need a little off time from the laptop and work. Also, Eid is hardly two days away and things will get pretty hectic from ummm right after I click Publish here, ha. Regular posts will resume from Monday 28th September, if I go MIA. 🙂

Much Love! xx

Hie you guys!

How’s everyone doing? I hope everyone had a good weekend and start of the week. I wanted to do a serious post but then I got lazy and thought of doing a chatty one instead where I just share stuff that’s been going on with me. Well there hasn’t been much except me staying at home mostly and scrubbing the house clean all day errrdayy. In between all that there have been a few things that make me believe I have a life.

For starters I have got back into reading. I was in a reading slump but now it’s all good. I am going to pop a post tomorrow so watch this space. 😀

Music wise there are some songs I have been listening to on repeat. Pretty Little Liar’s soundtrack has been on fleek this season. They had such amazing tracks but Give Us a Little Love by Fallulah have been the best. Good For You by Selena Gomez ft. A$AP Rocky is another one of my favorite these days. I love how sexy Selena’s voice is in this song and A$AP’s part is super cool. One Direction came out with their new single Drag Me Down which is nice too. I saw the video and Louis looks *insert HUGE heart eye emoji* super love. I also gave a listen to Lana Del Rey’s single High By The Beach. It’s similar to all her other numbers but I still like it plus she looks fabulous in the video.

Fashion wise Dungarees are back in trend. *8 years old me is doing the happy dance in one right now* I love the causal/comfy look. I am all about that life lol. I can’t stop drooling over all the different styles and cuts. I am extremely tempted to order them all but momma can’t afford right now, kiddos, ha. xD My favorite has got to be mid thigh/above the ankle, side buttons and ripped ones. Ah, absolute dream.

Makeup wise I have been obsessed with the brand Bourjois. I have been swatching there product every now and then when I visit the mall and I am in love. Their blushers and velvet lipsticks/lip gloss has caught my fancy. Fragrance wise I can’t stop thinking about Victoria’s Secret body mists. I want to go there and say ‘one of each please’. One day I will do that.

In other news, I have been missing L a lot from Death Note. I might have an urge to rewatch the anime and movies. I have also been re-watching Friends (yes, I have that much time) and I feel like I will never love another show again now. Not for a while at least. *psst don’t tell Sheldon*

What have you guys been up to?! Let me know in the comments below! 🙂

Review ~ Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

?

Before I begin, I can’t seem to recall when the last time I used Mascara was. It was a good couple of years ago and I was totally into the hardcore Max Factor and Maybelline ones at that time. Fast forward to 2015 and with a pair of immensely sensitive eyes, when I started getting into makeup and buying eye products I was in tears, literally. Anything too strong would immediately make my eyes water. I was eyeing quite a lot of Max Factor Mascaras but one swatch of them and I knew they weren’t going to work for me plus wassup with the crispy lashes man? Like seriously? (I am talking like an old woman I know but please bear with me…) After almost giving up, I ended up at Essence Cosmetics counter. I saw this pretty bottle, picked it up, paid for it and left. Best.decision.ever.

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara comes in a salmon pink cylinder shaped bottle. It has a curved fiber brush and almost tightly packed bristles. The curved fiber brush provides the lashes with a perfect dramatic curl. The tightly packed bristles help in giving the lashes the most volume. The formula is thick but doesn’t weigh down your lashes. It also doesn’t make them go crispy after a while of applying. The color is darkest black that gives the eyelashes an intense look. It has a similar scent that most mascara’s have but isn’t irritating. It didn’t sting my eyes.

It is not waterproof but it ends up staying on for a good 4-6 hours. It doesn’t smudge and doesn’t lose its curl that quickly unless you are sweating like a sinner in church. You don’t need any fancy eye makeup remover for it. It comes off easily with water itself. I carry it around in my bag and I have no complains about any slippage. The packaging is sturdyyy.

If you’re someone who is just beginning with makeup and don’t know which one to pick I would recommend Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara. Not only is it easy on the eyes but it also gives your eyes the most gorgeous effect.

Essence Cosmetics have a range of other mascaras too and I can’t wait to try them all now. *excited*

PS. I did try to take a picture with the mascara in action but it was an epic fail. I shall soon learn how to take pictures with mascara on, don’t you worry.

PSS. I get asked a lot where I get Essence product from. I get mine mostly from Carrefour Hypermarket in Muscat City Center, Seeb. Their counter is also available in:

Carrefour Hypermarket – Qurum City Center

The Sultan Center – Qurum

Vacha’s Hypermarket – Al Azaiba

And just in case anyone is wondering, here is Essence Cosmetics Oman official Facebook page.

Cya guys later!

A Peek Into My Weekend~

I am not really an outdoorsy or party kind of a person. I like to stay home more. Going to the mall is perhaps the most action I get on my weekends. Though I always prefer staying in bed and read a book, watch a movie or write instead.

One of my other favorite activities to do on a weekend is give my makeup brushes a thorough cleaning. I like to give my brushes a proper wash after a week (if I am applying makeup daily) or at least after every two weeks. It really depends on how much they’ve been used. Sometimes I don’t give them a wash for a month if I haven’t used them at all.

Weekend

I am very fuss free when it comes to cleaning. I like to go for the easiest method possible which does the job as well. I use Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Cleanser for this purpose. I usually just take a brush, put it under the tap of warm/hot water facing downwards so that water doesn’t get into its core or change its shape. Then I just take a bit of cleanser in my palm and swirl the brush on it and then wash it facing downwards. I do this whole thing one more time or sometimes two more times if the product doesn’t come out in one go. I repeat this for all the brushes.

Now that the brushes are clean I wipe and swirl them gently on a towel and keep them to dry on the table in a cup. While I am doing other errands I pass by them and caress them every now on then so when they dry they are back to their original shape.

It’s weird but cleaning my brushes is perhaps my favorite chore so far because what’s better than super tidy brushes that provide you super flawless finish the coming week. 😉

How often do you give your brushes a wash and what method do you use? Leme know in the comments below! 🙂

Hope you guys have better weekend plans than me, ha! Leme know about them 😀

Love,

BOBBI BROWN The Hot Collection – Limited Edition

bb1 Intro

It is that time of the year again when Bobbi Brown comes out with her limited edition collection. To begin with, I am a massive Bobbi Brown fan especially her limited edition collections because they are always super cool. Having lost the chance of buying her previous two collections; Rich Chocolate Collection and Nectar & Nude Collection, I am very determined to get my hands on her latest one – The Hot Collection in collaboration with Kate Uptown. I first saw it on Bobbi Brown Middle East Instagram and knew right away it’s totally up my street.

The collection features:

bb3

Three Limited Edition Sheer Lip Color Shades – Hot Pink, Hot Orange, Hot Berry

I got a chance to try Hot Berry and really liked. It gives a very sheer glossy dark pinkish color to your lips leaving them looking very natural and quite drool worthy. Most of the berry toned lip colors I try are always too dark for me and kind of make me look like a vampire but this one was perfect – not very dark not very light – just the perfect amount of pinkish berry color.

bb2

Three Limited Edition Art Stick Shades – Hot Pink-10, Hot Orange-11, Hot Berry-09

I have my eyes on the Hot Berry one because I like Hot Berry Sheer lip color a lot and I am not the one who spends on glossy stuff but if I do get it I might just pick the Art Stick too. Would do anything to prolong the lip color effect, ha.

bb1

Limited Edition Hot Nudes Eye Palette –

Row 1 – Left to Right – Ivory, Smoke Shimmer Wash, Peach Sugar Shimmer Wash, Cement Sparkle

Row 2 – Left to Right – Nude Petal, Bronzed Beige Metallic, Taupe, Blackest Brown

I love Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Eye Palettes. They are always so good. Their Hot Nudes Eye Palette is something I would definitely spend on. It has all the perfect colors that can be used for any occasion, casual or formal. You can dress up with them or dress down. Absolutely love it.

bb4

Limited Edition Cheek Palettes –

I am not into cheek palettes as I like individual pots more and I have recently purchased an extremely gorgeous pink blush (I’ll share soon, lovelies 😉 ). From Left to Right – Pale Pink Blush / Pink Highlighter / Powder Pink Blush

bb5

Limited Edition Ink Liner

A pen ink liner in shade Darkest Black. Not something I would invest in because I have no eyelid space lol but wouldn’t mind giving it a go.

As far as I know it’s retailing in Oman from 15th of May (yessss I have some time to save up for all of it) but I shall keep you guys updated if I see it in store before that.

So what do you guys think about The Hot Collection? Which product would you spend on? I definitely need the Hot Nudes Eye Palette in my life.

Till next time,

Love

Empties

Empties #1

_1428829644686 (2)

Sorry for the lack of posts guys. There is something wrong with WordPress and Omantel connection here. I cannot access a lot of things on WP. Sometimes I can’t even view other blogs and that sucks. I hope they fix the problem soon because I want to get into the blogging zone again and want to discover more blogs too. I miss reading everything you guys have been posting.

For today I thought to share my garbage with you all, ha. I have been saving some of these empties from a while now and that’s absolutely gross but then it was necessary, lol.

Before we start I would like to tell you guys that back in the days I was very careful about what I pick. There wasn’t much experimenting involved. I am still careful but I do tend to experiment now. The stuff I am going to talk about is almost everything I would want to repurchase because they were really good. Now let’s get started. 😀

So I tried Carolina Herrera VIP 212 and loved it. The smell is strong, not very feminine and superb for any occasion. You can wear it on a daily basis or keep it for special occasions and it will go perfectly with anything. It might come off very strong in the beginning but you adjust pretty quickly. I love the packaging and do plan to repurchase it soon.

I remember Cabotine De Gres was suggested by Annayah to me and as soon as I had a sniff of it I knew I wanted it in my life. It’s my most favorite scent and I have worn it so much. I always used to get asked out about it. The sad thing is I went to repurchase it but they ran out of it and maybe another version of it came out and they discounted this one. That was quite upsetting but I shall find it and make it mine one day – like a gazillion bottles of it.

By the number of Olay Essential Beauty Fluid in this picture you might have already guessed my feelings for this product. Non greasy, smooth finish, hydrating – Olay Beauty Fluid for normal/combo skin is an essential for me. I go through a bottle very quickly now because I use it on a daily basis. It works as my moisturizer, primer, day and night cream; it’s basically everything for me. Thanks mum for getting me addicted to it. I have already repurchased it a number of times.

If there is one moisturizer I would prefer over Olay Essential Beauty Fluid it would be The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream. Extremely light on the skin, perfect for dry skin days because extremely hydrating, works amazingly to fix dry patches, gives a boost to your dull complexion and a superb primer. So many good qualities and I can still not make myself to repurchase it unless they put it up in the Sale section because RO 5.700 for a 50ml cream; I just can’t justify this purchase. If only they come up with a bigger tub I wouldn’t mind buying but 50ml is just too less.

I have raved about Olay Gentle Cleansers Softening Milk so much in a lot of posts. It was my favorite milk cleanser before I ran out of it and I found out they discounted it. It was the most non greasy milk cleanser, would remove my makeup in one go, was amazing as a facial routine and was generally very good. I plan to try the new Milk Cleanser they came out with but I doubt it will be as good as this one. Stay tuned for a review on it soonish because I am half way through with my The Body Shop Cucumber Milk Cleanser so Olay will be my next target.

The first time I used The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash I was not really sure if I would repurchase it. The thing is I like changing my face wash after I am done with one or I just buy a new one while already using one because I get bored and I like variety for my face washes. This bottle was very trying. It’s huge (250ml) and took me nearly 8 months to finish. I was frustrated in between and bought a Neutrogena face wash but returned to Tea Tree face wash because IT’S INCREDIBLE!! It smells a little funny in the start but the way it clears your skin after a night, no other product can. It’s very soothing and brightens your complexion. It doesn’t do much for your acne but it does help with oiliness. I repurchased it even before it ended because that’s just how much I cannot live without this product.

YC Whitening Facial Scrub with Mulberry Extract – officially my favorite scrub ever. Gentle on the skin, scrubs in well, made out of natural stuff and an extremely economical price; I love it. I repurchased it in Avocado this time. It smells a lot like Nair hair removing cream lol but love how well it exfoliate without hurting the skin.

I love my waterline black as the darkest night and nothing does that well than Maybelline The Colossal Kajal in Black/Noir. It stays in place for a really long time and is generally very good. Can be used as an eyeliner too but not for people like me who have no eyelid space. I repurchased it the moment it ended. It’s a staple.

And we are done. I hope I did not bore you guys to death because this was a really long post. I never thought it would be. o_O

Until next time,

Love,
