As much as I love my eggs sunny side up, I often smear uncooked eggs on my face. Gotta love DIY Beauty.

This super simple face mask really does deliver on an instant, dewy glowing complexion and you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry. And for those of you who fear the stench of raw eggs, the orange and honey really do manage to mask it up!

I got introduced to the Origins skincare brand at the Sephora Fall 2017 event last month, and am so glad we now have this range available in our region. First off, this absolutely stunning natural skincare brand was conceptualized and created by William P. Lauder (grandson of the Estee Lauder beauty empire).

And secondly (and perhaps more importantly), despite the high quality and the luxury cosmetics association, the Origins skincare range is super affordable to boot!

I was given a tube of the¬†Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, my very first product from this brand, and wanted to share my insights with you…

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Sephora Fall 2017 launch event. Every girl worth her makeup bag eagerly awaits anything to do with Sephora, there’s always something new and exciting happening here.

I got a sneak-peak of many of the brand new Fall 2017 beauty goodies that are hitting the Sephora shelves this October, and wanted to share a rundown of my favorites here with you…

“This mask is like a big glass of water for parched skin.” – Sephora.

This summer has been particularly harsh, and especially so on my skin. The heat and humidity play havoc on the face, and add to it the contrast of the harsh, icy-cold air-conditioning indoors.

The skin is crying out for hydration, yet a greasy formula would lead to breakouts. What a dilemma! This is where this wonderfully light, yet refreshingly hydrating gel mask comes into play. Today I introduce to you the Sephora Hydrating & Quenching Gel Mask.

A good night’s sleep can do miracles for tired, lackluster skin. They don’t call it ‘Beauty Sleep’ for nothing! But how about adding more to your nightly beauty arsenal? A beauty product that works while you sleep?

Night masks are slowly but surely becoming the rage, and quite a few brands have these under their portfolio. I was recently sent the¬†GlamGlow DreamDuo OverNight Transforming Treatment, the newest addition to this American mask-specializing brand. This mask treatment is quite different from anything I’ve tried before, and I sure am hooked! I’ve been using it every single night for the past 2 weeks and will soon be on my second tub.

I am a huge advocate for natural beauty, and love whipping up organic products in my very own kitchen.¬†Lately I’ve been absolutely obsessed with coal… activated charcoal to be precise! Charcoal and beauty might seem to be the unlikeliest of BFF’s, but the possibilities of pairing the two are absolutely endless.

I’ve been using the¬†Starskin The Master Cleanser Detoxing Sea Kelp Leaf Cleansing Foam for nearly two weeks now, and loving that super-clean yet non-drying effect it has on my ‘skin. I was therefore very excited about giving this mask a go.

The¬†Starskin Master Cleanser Detox Sea Kelp Leaf Face Mask, although also based on traditional organic Korean beauty rituals, is very uniquely different from any other sheet mask I’ve used in the past.

First off, the mask itself is hand-cut from real sea kelp leaf and it takes 1,300 hours to make! The mask is drenched in a hydrating essence made of 90.37% organic plant extracts and uses a total of 31 organic ingredients. 

I’ve been on a Matcha Green Tea high lately. I’ve had it in traditional tea form, as an iced tea, and even as a Nice-Cream (click here if you missed out on the recipe). I’ve even incorporated it into my beauty regime!

This DIY Matcha Green Tea Peel Off Mask is super easy to make, costs you peanuts, feels absolutely divine, and works wonders at restoring that lost glow.

Asian-inspired sheet masks are here to stay. Apart from an influx of Korean sheet masks in the market, global brands are also taking cue and offering a variety of options for beauty mavens. Sephora Middle East has launched a brand new range of sheet masks under their banner, and I recently tried out their Avocado version; the Sephora Avocado Face Mask.
