I took a deep-dive pore plunge this morning with the Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask!
Scandinavian skincare brand Ole Henriksen took inspiration from their homeland’s spa tradition of ending a hot sauna treatment with a cold plunge into the sea with this delightfully bright turquoise cooling mud mask.
I recently got introduced to Boscia, a brand new skincare range that is debuting the shelves of Sephora Middle East this spring. The brand is new to our region, but has been around for a while and has a fan-following across the globe.
The main premise of the brand lies in the belief that the best skincare can be sourced from plants. Their plant-to-bottle formulas are loaded with good-for-you ingredients sans any chemical nasties. Sounds like my kinda brand!
I was therefore very excited to receive a tube of their best-selling mask, the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask.
The main ingredient in this mask in activated charcoal. As you may be aware, I love activated charcoal. Read my earlier post on its benefits by clicking here. Activated charcoal really does act like a magnet to pull out debris from the skin.
Friday is mask day for me, so what better way to rejuvenate than with a mask that promises to deep-clean with the added bonus of luminosity?
I was recently sent a large box of LUSH in the mail, and in it sat these adorably cute pots of brand new jelly masks.
Although I have normal to dry skin, I love a good mud mask every now and then. A tightening mud treatment pulls out the excess oil and grime which we are all prone to given the heat and humidity of the UAE.
I came home with a wee travel-sized 15 gram pot of the GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment from the Sephora Fall 2017 event. This brand is synonymous for mud masks, and their packaging is always beyond gorgeous.
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.
‘When’ face masks are the latest sheet-masks to hit the UAE beauty scene.
The Koreans are pioneers of the sheet-mask concept, and it is of little wonder that the ‘When’ brand also hails from Korea.
I tried the ‘When Makeup Base’ mask this weekend, just before a special date night with hubby, and loved what it did for my complexion.
Avocado & honey are the perfect ingredients for an indulgent health-boosting smoothie, but have you ever considered this combo as a part of your beauty regime?
I decided to smear this combo on my face. Best decision ever!
