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. ūüôā

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.

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!

AWESOME Mask for Oily Skin – Nature’s Bounty!

Standard

Nature's Bounty Oily Face Mask

Hey everyone this is my first post for year 2015. Hope all of you guys enjoyed your holidays and 2015¬†started well. ūüôā

If you people have been following me from the beginning am sure by now you know I have super oily skin. So on New Year’s Eve while doing some shopping I came across this mask from Nature’s Bounty – Sebum Balancing Facial Mask with Active Carbon for Oily Skin. As soon as I saw this I didn’t waste a minute and tried it!¬†

Seriously guys this mask is very Impressivveeee!!! Simply WOW! ūüėÄ It worked so well on my skin like literally my oily skin has disappeared! PORES have disappeared! Isn’t that cool?! This mask is suitable for mixed &¬†oily skin and contains Algae Essence that hydrates the skin leaving it silky, smooth and healthy. This mask contains ACTIVE CARBON that absorbs skin impurities and excess oil. It is very easy to use but however after it dries up it may be difficult to remove and does become messy so I would suggest you put this when you going for shower.

Usage Instructions:

1. Pour the sachet content in a bowl then mix it with water.
2. Using a Spatula, stir swiftly until the mixture achieves a smooth consistency.
3. Apply the mixture over the face and neck area in circular movement avoiding the eye and lip area.
4. Leave on for 15-20 minutes then peel-off.
5. Rinse face and neck with lukewarm water.

You can use this mask 2-3 times so no need to use One sachet full as it may be too much!

And VOILA!!! Super beautiful matte glowing skin!!!! ūüėČ

Can’t remember the price but I know it was very cheap if I may say. I can tell you that this is definitely going to be one of my MUST HAVE¬†face mask for Summer! Nature’s Bounty also have different types of masks for different types of skin. If you have dry skin but a very Oily T-zone you may apply it only there.

Available in all major supermarkets and hypermarkets across UAE.

Hope this post was helpful as always! ūüôā

Super Soft Baby Feet – Product of the Month!

Standard

1000HOUR SOFTSOLE EXPRESS

 

 

Hey everyone, we all love having those super soft baby feet but we also know that it takes a lot of hard work and mostly a lot of struggle to maintain it. And going to the spa every time for treatment can be a major headache specially if you are a busy person. As you ladies know am always looking out for do-it yourself products and I came on this amazing product! ūüôā

1000 Hour Softsole Exfoliating Foot Peel is a safe and effective at-home treatment that exfoliates feet to soften calluses and cracked heels while removing hardened skin from the feet. Its literally like giving your feet a PEEL! This product has got Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid & Salicylic Acid in it. It is also enriched with lavender oil to help relieve tired, fatigued feet and vitamin E for it’s moisturizing qualities and improving skin elasticity.

How to use:

  • Rinse your feet

  • Apply the wraps¬†containing active ingredients to your feet

  • Relax for 90 minutes and wash off

If you’ve been fed-up of using foot files etc etc to remove those hard skin on your heal this pedicure treatment will definitely help you in removing¬†rough skin easily after one application. The hardened skin¬†begins to peel after 3-7 days, revealing beautiful, softer skin in just two weeks. Please note you may get shocked to see the amount of skin peeling. It is quite natural so please don’t get panicked. To remove the dead/peeled skin easily soak your feet in warm water.

 

If you have dry and smelly feet these wraps may do a wonderful job for you. This peel is not painful at all but in case you have any open wounds, suffer from fungal nail infections, skin allergies or tinea consult a medical practitioner before using. You should also stop using Softsole immediately if you feel discomfort or skin irritation.

 

If you are always busy and cant afford to go to spa every time I definitely recommend this! I seriously think its a life savior kind of product.

Available in Major Hypermarkets in UAE for AED22

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. ¬† ūüôā

 

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.

 

Skin Analyzer

 

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)!

Moisturizing Socks do they work?

Standard

Moisturizing Socks 1&2

 

Hey Everyone, there are people no matter how much they care for their feet they still end up having a fair share of calluses, dry patches and cracked skin. Even those who regularly use a pumice stone and foot lotion might find that the forces working against their feet. Not to mention the climate as well has a major role such as dry weather, hot showers and open shoes. And comes in picture the Moisturizing Socks!

 

So good news… thanks to the Moisturizing Socks now you don’t need to put vaseline, oil or heavy cream on your feet, then wrap them in cellophane and then put on a pair of socks until morning to have soft and smooth feet! All these steps are¬†time consuming and Moisturizing Socks makes life easier!

 

So what are Moisturizing Socks?

Well to start with there are 2 different types of socks. Those that you pull on over heavily lotioned feet, and those that come with lotion built in. But today I will review those with built-in lotion.¬†These socks are really convenient as you don’t need to deal with applying creams or lotions or worry about purchasing one separately.¬†These socks comes in different scents like¬†lavender, mint and tea tree and the moisturizing ingredients are typically avocado oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, vitamin E and jojoba and¬†are contained in a polymer gel that comes in the sock itself. See below how it is inside.

 

Moisturizing Socks with Built In Gel

How to use?

 

First you need to wash your feet using lukewarm water and a soap-free cleanser to avoid drying out the skin. Use a pumice stone or exfoliating scrub to clear off some of the dry, callused skin on the heels and soles of your feet. This will help the moisturizing ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin. Rinse and pat your feet dry instead of rubbing them with the towel, which could remove too much moisture. Then apply moisturizing lotion, cream or oil.

 

If you are using a gel-type moisturizing sock, you may skip this step. Apply the moisturizer as soon as you can,¬†preferably within three minutes of drying off to seal in as much moisture as possible. If you struggle with athlete’s foot, try¬†to avoid getting moisturizer in between your toes.

 

Usually the socks comes with instructions telling you for how long you should wear them which is usually from 30-40 minutes. But you may also wear it overnight.¬†These¬†socks also come with nonslip soles, so you can pamper your feet while you do chores or other work around the house. Cool right! ūüôā¬†If you have very dry skin, using the moisturizing socks on a daily (or nightly) basis might be worth considering. However, once or twice a week is usually adequate for most people, but be sure to pay¬†attention to the directions.

 

How to take care of your socks?

You do need to treat these socks with care to get the most use out of them. Most require hand washing, and because they already contain the moisturizing ingredients, they will run out of these ingredients after several uses.

I personally enjoy these socks as they are really comfortable and lightweight. And they do work perfectly! First time I had worn them they felt a bit cold but then gradually you can feel some heat inside which means they are working. This is a product I definitely recommend if you want to pamper your feet!

Derma e Toner for Refined Pores?

Standard

Derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Toner with Papaya

 

 

Hey lovelies, few months before I decided to change my toner. Not because it was not working but just that I wanted to try something new and different. So while shopping on iherb I came across this. Right now as winter is here my skin is dry and sensitive around my nose and I hate using creams to hydrate my skin as I already have super oily skin specially oily T-Zone, so a toner that would balance the skin pH was very much needed!

 

Coming to the product, I have used it for almost a month and I can SEE a difference in my pores. It has made my pores smaller!!! And I really like the overall result!¬†This toner¬†refreshes, tones and tightens skin to reduce visible signs of aging. The¬†Papaya enzymes and glycolic acid¬†in it helps to exfoliate dead skin cells to enhance a smoother complexion without fine lines and wrinkles and Sea kelp and aloe vera boost moisture levels while vitamin A fades the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. It is alcohol free and does make the skin look bright and clean. Sounds great… right?! It does have a strong nice smell which maybe some of you wont like but me am okay with it as it doesn’t annoy me in any way. So would I buy this product again YES!

 

After cleansing your face, dampen a soft cotton pad with the toner. Gently and thoroughly wipe face and neck in upward direction and put your favorite moisturizer. So this is definitely a simple and effective toner which I do recommend.

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!!! ūüôā
