#TrueStory A couple of weeks ago, we got a call from our building caretaker. He tells us that the apartment right under us has been complaining about leakage from their bathroom roof.
The culprit is our bathtub… whenever we shower, our neighbours get a spray-down of it too! Pretty grotesque, but what was even scarier was when the plumber came around.
Turns out the clogging in the bathtub drainage is equivalent to a heart-attack of sorts. The pipes, like clogged up arteries, gave way to a major piping breakdown… and it was cholesterol. It was my hair.
Look what came in my Bashara Care monthly box this month… the Lime Crime Venus 2 palette! If you’ve been following my beauty posts for a while now, you already know how much I love Lime Crime. I’ve been ordering in their crazy cool shades of Velvetines lipsticks well before they hit the UAE market (click here for a recap), and I did a complete review with swatches on the original Lime Crime Venus palette here before.
I absolutely LOVE my original Lime Crime Venus eye-shadow palette, and will surely keep the gorgeous box well after all the product has been used up. I am a sucker for great packaging, and love the pop-art take on the renaissance inspired Venus.
So imagine my delight to find the funkier, nose-ringed bad ass twin palette on none other than BasharaCare.com ! Retailing at a very affordable AED 155 and with no shipping fee within the UAE, and speedy delivery within 24 hours, buying this brand new beauty was a piece of cake.
The summer sun is blaring bright and strong. Ironic how I always patronize the sunscreen only when the temperatures spike up. I really should have Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Wear Sunscreen’ song on repeat, regardless of the season. In case you’ve missed it, click here for my previous post with details on the importance of sunscreen.
I am a sucker for facial oils, and was quite intrigued by this oil-based SPF I spotted on BasharaCare.com This website has turned into my one-stop online shop for all things beauty, and love their one-day delivery service! My bottle of Herbal Essentials Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Oil SPF 50 arrived exactly a day after I hit the purchase button, all wrapped up in the signature Bashara Care box like a special pressie to myself.
Isn’t online shopping an absolute Godsend? I for one am a total online shopping addict. Given my crazy busy schedule of working full-time, juggling home, mummyhood and a blog to boot, my trips to the malls in my off-times have become very limited. And don’t even get me started on weekend parking woes!
Given I am a beauty junkie (which lead me to beauty blogging in the first place), one of my favorite online stores is BasharaCare.com
Bashara Care boasts of one of the widest range of skincare, hair care and makeup needs in the Middle East, and they do same day delivery to beauty junkies like me living across UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain. Yes you heard that right… same day delivery! These guys have absolutely amazing customer service!
Before I get too carried away about this online gold mine for beauty needs, let me tell you about my latest Bashara Care delivery; the Urban Veda Purifying Day Cream.
I am a huge fan of Dr. Hauschka, and it has been a struggle finding their gorgeous, organic beauty products in the UAE. Then I discovered Bashara Care, an online beauty store operating in the UAE, and got super excited!
One of my favorite products from the Dr. Hauschka range is the Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream. It was my favorite facial cream during my late teens, and when my little parcel of Dr. Hauschka goodies arrived from Bashara Care (exactly one day after placing my order!), this little tube brought back a whole flood of memories.
