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,

You Are Not On The Guest List ;) – 212 VIP Perfume by Carolina Herrera ❤

My first fragrance post, yaaay!! *whoop whoop* 😀

I have been trying to write this since last month, but I had been too caught up with studies and didn’t get the time. Besides, I wanted to post more about things that students can buy on their mare pocket money alone hence didn’t think to really post about it at all. BUT YouTube’s excessive promotion of 212 VIP World Tour really got to me, haha! I am not a party animal or one to go to clubs and dance parties, but I like to observe things and the parties they are showing is massive and simply mind blowing. And to think it’s all happening in UAE, which is like right next to Oman, man I got excited, haha! UAE is such a cool place. I wish to settle down there someday, maybe.

Moving on, last month my brother treated me to some retail therapy because yes I needed some. 😛 I bought two perfumes. Nope I am not going to tell you about the second one; it will be featured here in its own time. 😉 One of them was 212 VIP for women by Carolina Herrera.

212 VIP - Henry and Text

The first time I smelled it, it was in February this year. I made a mental note to get it soonish and then I forgot about it, *cough* amazing memory problems *cough*.

It comes in this heavy reflective metal kind of tablet bottle in gold. Its name describes its smell perfectly – strong, unique, independent. It is a proper VIP scent which lasts a long time and is perfect for formal gatherings or office meetings where you want to make a good impression.

I was in good luck when I was buying the perfume because the sales person recommended me the gift-pack which came with 212 VIP Body Lotion and I didn’t have to pay anything extra for it. The perfume alone equaled to the whole set’s price. So I made a very wise decision and got the gift-pack instead. The body lotion is amazing as well. It leaves the skin smooth and the smell lasts.

Really hard to photograph it with all the reflection.

I would totally recommend this to anyone who isn’t much fond of very feminine scents and like to display an independent personality. Just one suggestion, don’t spray it too much in one go because it has a strong smell and if not you, it might leave your companion with a headache.

Have you tried 212 VIP perfume?! How did you find it? Have you tried any other CH product that you would like to recommend? Feel free to share your thoughts. 🙂 x
