The world never remains inactive due to revolving information and firsthand research. People’s perceptions alter overtime with exposure to experiences or via the extensive data gathered from various sources. Certainly, it seems that “organic” and “natural” personal care products have got the spotlight over a couple of years. People are on the outlook to find the best natural beauty remedies; and I’m not barred out from this! I always end up surfing the internet looking up for award winning vegan beauty products. It’s time to skip all those harmful chemicals, dyes, sulphates, parabens, propylene-Glycol and unnatural fragrances which show quick results but eventually impairs your allure.

Thankfully, consumers around the world have realized this essential fact and our investing time and money to find the perfect natural routine with organic beauty care products which they can trust for life!

Ana Ahmed, blogger at Ana’s Journal shares her salon review.

Back in August, Golden Mirror Beauty Salon and Pakistani Beauty Bloggers Community hosted a giveaway together exclusively for the PBBC members. Unbelievably, I won. Yaayy!!

Not only did I win all Body Shop services that the salon has to offer but my cousin also won a manicure and a pedicure service along with me. As it happened, my cousin was not available so I talked to the Golden Mirror team about it and they were nice enough to allow me to bring my sister for the services.
Right from when we stepped in we were treated like a couple of  queens. They pampered us, showered us with gifts and even had lunch with us. From the full body services to the facial and manicure, pedicures everything was perfect. I was not expecting to be treated this way on winning a giveaway at all. You know how usually when you get discounts or win giveaways the company tries to give as little as possible. The Golden Mirror Beauty Salon did everything they could to please us even further till we were delighted to have won and come.
The owners are both as sweet as sugar. I wish I could have met their mom as well. I wish Khatija and Ayesha the very best in life. I hope this amazing venture that they have recently started hits the sky and they prosper along with their amazing team.
They presented me with a surprise as I was leaving. A poster of the giveaway winner announcement with my name on it, A Golden Mirror Beauty Salon sticker, Essie nail color in watermelon in a cute little jar, 2 year membership where I get 10% off on specific services AND a gift card worth Rs.3500. Not returning to such an awesome place is definitely out of the question.

Thank you, PBBC and Golden Mirror Beauty Salon!

The Balm- May Loumnizer (Review)

8 Sep

With the frequent The Balm sales that go up to 70% off, it’s no wonder that I went crazy over this already very hyped highlighter! Since I’m a big fan of matte skin, I sometimes tend to go overboard with powdering my skin, and looking flat instead of fab! This is where the May Loumnizer steps in, and gives me that glow from within.

With its buttery soft texture, it is a dream to blend. I won’t lie and say I have the fanciest brushes for makeup application, but if my super old and battered brushes work effectively in blending this out for the ‘glow from within’ then no one should have a problem! The only downside of this super buttery almost creamy texture is that one tumble, and this will fall! Unfortunately that happened to me as well, but it didn’t stop me from using it on an everyday basis haha.
The packaging is compact, houses a huge mirror that makes it perfect for on the go touchups and with its quirky illustrations, is a joy to take out of your handbag when you’re with your friends. The Balm as a brand has impressed me incredibly, with its texture, packaging, and quality for the price! While I haven’t tried many high end highlighters, with this in my collection, I’m not even tempted to, and that coming from a makeup hoarder is a big compliment!
I would advise everyone to wait for The Balm sales to get a hold of this that can up every couple of months on their website and Hautelook as well!

Clarisonic Mia – Worth the Hype or not?

21 Jul

Hello Readers,

Today I am bringing you a review on a product that is much raved about and that was on my wishlist for ages. Being a victim of an oily skin and having frequent breakouts I really needed a product that could help exfoliate and clean my skin from all the gunk that deposits/sits on my skin during the day whether its makeup or sweat or any dirt that can cling on to your skin while you are out and about.

After lusting over this product for months I finally decided to pick it up from Nordstorm during an awesome Christmas sale. The best part was I had a chance to buy it myself since I was in the States at that time and I was able to choose and pick which one will be best for me. I got myself a nice baby pink one.

Clarisonic Review

 

Now, let see what this is:

What it is?

Clarisonic is a rechargeable electric device that has a brush head (removable/changeable) on the front. This is operated with a button (on & off) since this is Mia and not Mia 2 it comes with just one simple push of on and off function. Trust me you do not need Mia 2 or the latest versions since they all perform the same.

Clarisonic Review by Mariam Shahjahan

How you use it?

Wet your face with some water and add a few drops of your favorite face wash on the brush head ( I use to love using Philosophy purity face wash but my recent fav is First Aid beauty face wash. Can’t stop bragging how amazing that face wash is) switch on the device and gently massage over your face. The device will stop after a minute and that is more than enough for me. Since I use it every day I don’t use it more than one minute.

How to store it?

Just clean the brush head and take a Q-tip and clean the inner area (from where you have removed your brush head from) I like to spray my brush head with a mixture of (Dettol and rose water) I am not sure why I do this but this makes me think that my brush head is bacteria free and clean. Anyways, then just let it air dry and put on the brush head onto your device and cover it with a cap it comes. The protective cap is to keep your brush head in shape and obviously secure and by secure I do not mean that it won’t get dirt over it since there are holes on the cap. So every time I use my Clarisonic I wash the brush head spray it with the Dettol and rose water mixture and then use it after like 5 or 10 minutes and then again wash it , spray it and store it.

Clarisonic Review By MS

 

 

What it does?

Well, Clarisonic is a device that gently exfoliates your skin removing all the gunk and dirt that’s on your skin. It will even remove the makeup that is left over after you have removed your makeup. Yes! You still have tons of makeup on your face even after you have removed it. I like to use Bio Derma Sensibo H2O to remove my makeup but when I use Clarisonic I can see my brush head going all brown/yellow **Eeewww** and that is all the foundation coming out of my pores leaving my skin squeaky clean and germ free. Now that you have cleaned your skin and all the dirt, oil and makeup is gone then you can go ahead and use your moisturizer or serum and your eye cream or whatever is there in your skin care and your skin will quickly absorb all that which means your products will show results faster than usual and they will penetrate in your skin quickly hence showing results faster instead of sitting on top and making you greasy. You will break out less, you will not have enlarged pores, your makeup will stay put for longer and you will not have to waste tons of money on skincare as the products you are currently using will start to show up results much faster and you will not be disappointed in waiting for it for ages.

Clarisonic and Philosophy

Did it worked for me? Oh yes ! it did. My skin feels smoother, much younger, radiant, pore free and above oil it does not produce tons of oil like it use to. I do not break out and my over skincare is just making me more and more satisfied.

What skin type does it suits well? It is the best ever product for all skin types. There are different kinds of brush heads for acne prone skin and sensitive skin. Oily skin people will love it if they use it on a daily basis or even every alternate day. Dry skin people will love it too if they use it twice a week and followed by a thick moisturizer.

Clarisonic and First Aid Beauty

How long will this product last? Since it’s a device and not a product that would expire, this will last you ages maybe your entire life if used, stored and treated with care. However please please do change your brush head after every 3 months. Look out for all sorts of deals. Subscribe to Sephora newsletter and you will be updated with all the kinds of deals and sales going on. Get a 2 pack brush head then and keep it aside and definitely do change your brush head every 3 month , this is very important.

I love this product to pieces and highly recommend it to anyone who would want to take care of their skin and would like to see a difference. It is a product for those who love themselves and like to take care of their skin and the way it feels and look.

Hope you find this post informative, for any questions and queries related to Clarisonic feel free to get in touch.
