Conatural’s Restorative Eye Gel

It had been quite a while that I had been looking for an eye cream that felt safe and mild enough to use. Almost all eye creams available in Islamabad are for 30+ skin. Although, the sales girls tried their  best to sell it saying we should start taking anti aging measures really early on to prevent signs of aging but I just didn’t feel like using those eye creams. It just didn’t feel safe to use them.

Acne Patches..

So I want to share a product that I found really useful ever since i found out about it. I was watching some random night routine videos on YouTube when a youtuber mentioned that she used acne patches on her acne when she got home from work/school to help her skin heal quickly and keep it from scarring. The product immediately caught my attention. These acne patches are easily available in pharmacies and  big supermarkets in Pakistan now.

The acne patches I used. 24 in a pack in 3 different sizes as shown on the cover of the pack.

My main worry whenever i get a zit or pimple on my face is the scar it leaves behind. Continue reading

makeup at the end of the day?

i think most of the girls like makeup( Now there’s an assumption *says to self* *rolls her eyes*). So yeah, I think most girls use some form of makeup. Eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss? What’s your favourite makeup item?

Makeup can surely make you feel fresher and cuter or whatever but how many of us realise taking off makeup at the end of the day is just as important? Answer: It’s very important. Your skin needs to be clean, breathe, repair itself at night. So taking your makeup off is very important indeed.

I am going to share what i usually do to take off my makeup. The routine can be quite time taking sometimes and i would skip some steps but in a perfect world this would be my makeup removing routine everyday.

1) Cleaning eye makeup using bioderma and cotton pads
2) Cleansing face with a cleansing milk and olive oil or a cleansing oil
3)Cleaning skin again with a cleansing milk
4) Washing it with a face-wash.
5)Applying a toner and moisturizer afterwards.

i try to do this twice or thrice a week, thorough cleansing, if i wear makeup everyday. but even if i do wear makeup frequently sometimes laziness gets the best of me and sometimes i use bioderma all over my face or mix olive and cleansing milk and combine steps 2 and 3.

You can use the products that work best for you or that make your skin feel better. After much trial and error, the product I use nowadays include bioderma sensibio micelle solution, borges extra virgin olive oil, olay essentials conditioning milk and clean and clear exfoliating daily wash.

I loosely built this makeup cleansing regime around this video by Lisa Eldridge. She shares some awesome tips in this video.

Hope you liked the post!! 🙂

July favourites!!

these two products are worth trying…

1. Maybelline New York Dream fresh BB cream

2. Bioderma makeup removing micelle solution

bioderma

These products have very quickly become two of my favourite products. Maybelline dream fresh BB cream is simply amazing. Super moisturizing, comes in a variety of shades, moderate coverage, doesn’t make your skin look oily and doesn’t feel heavy on skin. Highly recommended for use in this humid summer weather 🙂

Bioderma is absolutely wonderful when it comes to removing eye makeup and removes makeup without the need to rub your eyes and neither does it make the skin oily or overdry. Very effective for removing mascara.

I am thinking of doing a review about them soon in shaa Allah..

do you have any products that are your favourite? Let me know in the comments 🙂
