Standard

Ion Massager1

 

 

Hey everyone first of all I would like to say sorry to my readers for not being able to post for a very long time. I have been so busy recently that I could hardly find time to write on the blog. 🙂

Anyways today’s review is about the Facial Ion Massager which is a multi beauty instrument. This little Gadget is seriously awesome and does quite a good job at making the skin look good.

It helps in making the skin looks healthier from inside out by offering benefits including lifting and firming loose, droopy skin, restoring natural skin color, reducing lines and wrinkles and bringing definition back to your face by toning the facial muscles and stimulating the flow of blood and lymph, this facial massager gives you the benefits of Botox without the need for injections.

Regular use of a face massager can relax and tone your facial muscles and tissues and help restore the bloom and firmness of youth.

It is Simple to use, inexpensive and surprisingly effective. It also has an eye ministry which makes it easier to go near the corner of the eye and the size is convenient to work all around your eyes to delay or remove wrinkles, crow’s feet and bags under the eyes. It does a good job in improving and diminishing dark circles.

Though this facial massager is beneficial at any age, it’s especially good for women over 40. This is the age when the skin starts to slacken.

This Ion Massager helps skin care products to break down into nutrients in the skin so that the skin can easily absorb. It deep clean the skin, and can kill more than 99% of harmful bacteria, and strengthen the resilience of skin cells. At the same time break down excess facial fat cells, tighten the facial contour. It also helps skin Blemishes to whiten.

 

Below is a face chart to show you guys how to use the Ion massager.

I have to say this thing does work but you have to to use it continuously to see results. If you start using a facial massager you need to keep in mind that it’s not a quick fix. You should use it daily for 15-20 minutes but don’t expect any dramatic changes for at least a month. The Massager is suitable for dry, oily, sensitive, or aged skin. At first, daily treatment is recommended, but for sensitive and oily skin, every 3-4 days is okay. After the first month, treatments are only needed once or twice weekly.

This device works with 2 AA batteries.

It does soften and makes the skin juicy!

Hope this post was helpful as usual guys! 😉

Gadget of the Week – Skin Analyzer!

Standard

Skin Analyzer

Hey Loves, same like how people can’t survive without water our skin also needs enough moisture to maintain its normal function. And most importantly you need to understand your skin to be able to maintain it and protect it. So while again doing some online shopping  I came across this small and handy Skin Analyzer and had to order it. I was quite excited as you can hardly find these gadgets in Dubai and with the level of humidity/heat as well as winter around its difficult to understand what your skin really needs as treatments and cream.   🙂

 

Skin Analyzer

 

The Skin Analyzer can be used everyday and it does a pretty good job by making you understand your skin needs! So this gadget uses the latest Bioelectric Impedence Analysis technology to immediately and automatically detect the factors affecting the skin conditions such as moisture, oil, softness and displays the result on the LCD screen with convenient graphical illustration for the user to understand.

I love this Skin Analyzer as it is easy and comfortable to use and it really does what it’s supposed to do. I have combination skin with an oily T Zone but when winter comes my skin just change drastically so this little gadget definitely helps to figure out which cream/serum should be applied where and when. I definitely recommend this and the price for this little gadget is awesome! I am also trying to get you a Beauty Gadget review at least once every week/month so make sure you guys subscribe through mail, Like me on Facebook and Follow me on Instagram so that you don’t miss it (see details in contact)!

Japanese Konjac Sponge a MUST HAVE!

Standard

Konjac Sponge

 

Hey everyone, I had to share my thoughts and review on the Japanese Konjac Sponge.

 

Let me give you guys an introduction first.

 

The Japanese Konjac Sponge is a 100% natural facial and body cleansing sponge made from vegetable fibers of Konjac (Konnyaku). The Konjac Sponge has been used in Japan first as a bath sponge for newborn babies for more than 100 years because of its soft texture. It eventually is used as a favorite bath sponge for adults in Japan. Recently, the Konjac Sponge is sold as an cleansing item intended for luxury Japanese cosmetic and the Konjac Sponge’s popularity has been on the rise as facial cleansing and bath sponge in China, South East Asia and Europe.

 

Konjac Sponge

 

This 100% natural sponge has a soft texture making it gentle, safe and will not scratch skin while washing away dirt and oil from skin. Our Konjac Sponge is made from plant fiber of Konjac grown in Japan. It contains various positive minerals and antioxidant ingredients. Konjac is rich in vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, & E), proteins, lipids, fatty acids and natural minerals such as copper, zinc, iron and magnesium. These ingredients help nourish and smooth skin naturally. It contains no harmful chemical, so irritation is very rare even for those with sensitive and dry skin.

 

Benefits of the Japanese Konjac Sponge:


Thoroughly cleanses skin pores 

Removes dead skin cells, blackheads, dirt & oil 
Hydrates skin & balances pH
Eliminates excess sebum
Gently exfoliates skin
100% natural, sustainable & bio-degradable
No toxic & harmful chemicals 
Animal & cruelty free
GMO Free
Excellent for all skin types including sensitive skin
Suitable for everyone from babies, women and men

 

How does Konjac Sponge work?

Konjac Sponge has a unique propriety layer that can hold water very well. When the sponge is saturated with water, its surface is covered by a water layer. This water layer on the sponge’s surface constantly acts as a buffer to the skin and the layer forms a barrier between the sponge and the skin. As a result, the skin is never in direct contact with the fiber and it will not scratch and damage the skin even with hard scrubbing.

The wet Konjac layer is also slightly alkaline, so it works well to neutralize slightly acidic grime. This layer helps to break down blackheads, dirt, oil and downy hair and rinses them away, leaving your skin fresh and clean, even without the use of soap.

 

Konjac Sponges are available for different skin types with different necessities. 


Pure White Konjac: 100% Sponge


Cherry Blossom: 100% Konjac Sponge with Cherry Extract Powder & Pink Clay                              


Bamboo Charcoal: 100% Konjac Sponge & Bamboo Charcoal Extract Powder


Green Tea: 100% Konjac Sponge with Green Tea Extract Powder & Green Clay


Wild Mint: 100% Konjac Sponge with Japanese Peppermint Extract Powder, Blue Clay & Blue Mica


Citrus Fruit: 100% Konjac Sponge with Citrus Extract Powder & Yellow Clay

How to use & clean your Konjac Sponge?

Rinse and soak the dry Konjac Sponge with warm water until fully softened and expanded. A wet sponge expands approximately one and half size compared to the dry one. For first time use, the sponge might take up to 15 minutes of soaking until it becomes soft.

 

Soaking it with hot or warm water rather than cold water will help making the texture of the sponge softer. Cleanse your face with water-soaked sponge daily or every other day. Alternatively, combine it with your favorite cleanser to make the sponge even softer and to create a rich lather for an incredibly therapeutic experience.

 

Gently massage your face with the sponge starting from center of face and extend outwards in an upward direction. This produces a lifting effect to shape face for a slimmer silhouette and avoid sagging skin. Alternatively, gently massage the face with the sponge in circular motion. Please avoid harsh rubbing on acne area and around eye area.

 

After use rinse the sponge with clean water. Using clean hands, press the sponge gently in between palms to drain water out. DO NOT twist, stretch or press the sponge too hard as it may damage the sponge. If you have long nails, please do not squeeze/poke the sponge too hard as it may tear the sponge and cause it to fall apart.

Hang the sponge in a well-ventilated area to dry it. Do not expose the sponge to direct sunlight and do not leave the sponge in humid place i.e. poorly ventilated bathroom or faucet area. Alternatively, keep the sponge in a container and store it in a refrigerator.

Replace sponge every 2-3 months for the best cleansing experience.

You can keep it inside your refrigerator if you do not have a dry place to hang the sponge after use or humid free environment, this is a recommended method to store your sponge. After use, rinse the sponge as mentioned on the standard care above. Then, store the sponge inside a refrigerator in a sealed container or ziplock bag.

 

To disinfect the sponge, soak the sponge in a hot (not boiling) water for about three to five minutes. Do not use boiling water as it may deform the sponge due to its natural vegetable fiber characteristic. Carefully drain the water and let it cools off before handling or removing the excess water, then hang it to dry. This method can be done once in a while as needed.

 

This Konjac Sponge does and deliver what it says! No matter what type of skin you have this Sponge is a MUST HAVE!!! Right now my skin is a bit sensitive and it doesn’t hurt at all while scrubbing with it no matter how much force I have put. It does leave skin soft and smooth. For those who have hypersensitive skin and are scared to scrub this sponge is definitely for you!!! 🙂

My Ultimate & Favorite Brush Cleaner!

Hey ladies, I wanted to share with you guys how I clean my makeup brushes. Its super easy and you don’t need any high end product for that and most importantly its super affordable considering the size and price. 

Johnson's Baby Silky Sleek Shampoo

YESSS…. its my little man’s shampoo and it is such a good shampoo to clean your brushes. Its just AMAZING! 😀 It seriously removes all the dirt even the toughest and leaves the brushes super soft and they smell good as well.

How to use is simple… just put the shampoo on your palm and swirl your brush in it as much as required to remove foundation, shadows, powder, etc till its clean and just rinse and let it dry.

Hope this was helpful! 😉

My Micro-needling (Dermaroller) Routine

Standard

Micro-needle 1.00mm

Okay Ladies… I am literally struggling with my skin right now to remove some scars which are taking too long to fade. I definitely wanted to share this routine for those who want to remove scars and have overall beautiful skin.

First let me tell you what Micro-needling  is. It is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. Micro-needling is done to improve the skin texture by the help of using small needles as a minimal invasive treatment. It has been established for several years as a gentle and safe method for skin tightening, improving skin texture and scar therapy. Any skin type can use it and it has been found that it helped the skin to produce collagen.

I introduced Micro-needling nearly a year back in my skin care routine and I have to say I have been able to experience a lot of change since then. My skin has become more firm, my scars and pigmentation have reduced a lot visibly. It also helped in evening my skin tone which is really great! I am currently using 1.00mm. In the beginning it used to hurt but with time your skin gets used to it. I have been doing this on every 2 days and it does work.

Before doing this make sure you clean your skin and remove all impurities. Do the micro-needling and afterwards apply a good serum to nourish the skin. Micro-needling helps to open up the pores and helps the skin to absorb most of the products. You have to be careful while using this because you may cause scars to yourself if not used properly.

I really hope this post did help! 🙂

Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System Review

Standard

Olay Cleansing system

Hey girls… am so excited that finally the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is available in UAE! Yeeeyyyy!!!! 😀 I was so excited to see this that I thought I should definitely write about this. This system has been designed by a team of dermatologists along with Olay and is as effective as a system sold by skin professionals for nearly $200. For those who have been wanting to spend on Clarisonic systems but have been a little hesitant I would definitely recommend giving this system a try. I have been using this for the last 19 months and I have to say it does help in keeping my skin clean and specially in removing makeup.

This device works in a rotating system which is good for daily deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation. For those with sensitive skin you may not want to use it daily even though the brush is kinda soft.  Also to be noted this device is not Waterproof… so I would not advise taking this with you in shower. If you tend to have a more oily skin (like me) try using it daily you may see a great change . Also it is very easy to use. It has help me in fighting acne. Within one week I could see noticeable results where my skin tone and skin texture had improved a lot.

This system is very affordable and is available for AED 140 and AED 35 for 2 replacement brushes.
