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?

One of the highlights of the month of Feb was attending the Sephora Spring 2018 launch. This beauty mogul keeping outdoing themselves by sourcing the best in beauty from across the globe. This coming season is no different with many exciting new entrants, and a whole load of drool-worthy new additions from many of our favorite brands.

Here’s a rundown of some of the brand new Sephora Spring 2018 goodies I have my eyes on…

 

Calling out to all makeup addicts out there… bring out the child in you at Sephora Middle East’s limited edition #GiftBeautyParks

Located in the hub of CityWalk 2, this stand-alone Sephora structure gives retro carnivals a beauty makeover with age-old favorite games including Toss a Ring, Buzz Wire, Claw Machine and more. 

 

I have an inside joke about my hair. While others talk about the cliche ‘silky mane’, I claim mine’s more like cotton in texture (even bordering linen on particularly dry, frazzled days). With all that bleaching, the constant humidity and a need for washing it out far too often, my hair is crying out for some serious TLC.

Already a huge fan of the sheet masks and many of the innovative skincare products that fall under the ‘made in Sephora’ umbrella, imagine my excitement when Sephora announced the launch of its very own overnight hair masks!

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…

Urban Decay eye-shadow palettes have a cult following among beauty junkies in the know. I for one love matte eye-shadows, so imagine my excitement when I came across the brand new Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette!

I am a sucker for great packaging, and this particular palette is beyond doubt the prettiest neutral palette I own. The muted gold, textured packaging makes it a statement piece in my beauty stash, and boy does it look amazing in my Instagram flatlays!

“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.
