I was amazed when I first read about skincare products that have ingredients that will work in your sleep. It felt effortless and puts less pressure on me putting time aside for a mask at home or an in depth exfoliation during a busy week - wouldn’t you love that?Read More
I have been eyeing Elemis products for many years but always hesitated to buy any of its products because it wasn't targeted at problematic teenage /young adult skin. At least not the products I came across. Although I loved how it felt when I would have a facial with their products at my favorite spa - essence spa.Read More
If you’re looking for the solution to pigmentation, discoloration, acne leftover marks and you are patient, this is the product for you. I know deep down inside that one of the most difficult things to treat is acne scars, especially the smaller deeper ones they call ‘ice picks’ – and that is what I have. They can get better significantly with different types of laser, peeling treatments and other types. However these are costly and are usually done with a gap of 4-6 weeks, so incorporating skin care products to help your problem areas is essential.Read More
Roaccutane is a powerful drug, and it doesn’t take long for it to show clear side effects. For me, I suffer from dryness that drove me to replace almost all of my skincare products because I have normal to oily skin otherwise. This post is also relevant if you naturally have dry skin and you’re on the lookout for a good moisturizer; I have a few to recommend.Read More
Like many of you, having clear skin has been on my agenda for about 10 years now – and I think I finally figured out a plan that will help me get there. When I first thought of telling you about this journey, I planned on doing it on a monthly update basis, and then realized, what if it doesn’t work for; it would have been a waste of your time. Now that I am 4 months into my Roaccutene course (and the plan to the best skin I can) I can finally start sharing what’s been going on.Read More
RENs’ philosophy is all about ‘clean skincare’ - and that is exactly what they do and what you feel when using their products. From the packaging to the actual ingredients of their products; the experience feels ‘clean’.Read More
Living in a hot and sunny climate like Oman’s and being out all day everyday means being exposed to the sun a lot! This increases the chance of getting an imbalanced skin tone and sun spots. Although using sunscreen with a high SPF and a broad UV is not optional (I’ve been using the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer), it is important that you treat your skin as it ages to avoid long term effects of the sun on your skin.
I ordered the night cream from The Beauty Factory a couple of months ago, and I haven’t gone a night without using it.Read More
Removing makeup every evening is important to keep your skin healthy and to protect it from breakouts. However, it has not been easy to do until I discovered The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing oil.Read More
Maintaining the shape of your eyebrows can be challenging, even after getting them shaped to your wants. After I’ve found a specialist that shapes them wellRead More
If you have combination skin - oily to dry and live in a hot and humid environment like Muscat, you will love this product.
With the weather getting hotter, I've been keeping my skin looking and feeling healthy by keeping it hydrated. My skin gets oily but looks dry where my skin creases, around my forehead mostly and naturally makes my skin look tired and unattractive.Read More
Cleaning your brushes is as important as using them, and so I've decided to dedicate this post to this very thing.
My weekend was well spent, deep cleaning my brushes with the following steps and tools:
Sigma Spa® Brush Cleaning Glove

It isn’t often that I go out to explore different brands and types of cotton pads, so when I ran out of the one I had and discovered there are many brands and types out there, I decided it was time to go out on the hunt for the best cotton pad for facial use.
The criteria that I put down for my ideal find was based on the following:
Texture: Although all types may look the same, some have a textured side on one end, and a smooth side on the other end.Read More
I am constantly trying products to find what better suits my skin and my lifestyle; and trying even harder to find a skin routine that I can stick to. Serum is part of the routine that I enjoy because when using the correct one, the results are almost instant. I apply it between cleansing my face and moisturizing it.
This is one of those products where as soon as you stop using it, you start feeling that something’s missing. Although it claims to reduce the size of pores by 69% in 4 weeks, to me it’s more of a temporary and effective product to reduce the appearance of pores and reflect incredibly smooth skin.Read More
When it comes to drinking water – I am guilty of not drinking enough. It’s not because I don’t understand the importance of it, but I often forget. Until I break the habit, I’ll have to deal with dehydrated skin (& lips) and the more than regular migraine.
Growing up, Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly) has been our savior for dry skin, and it has been magical for me until recent years. It feels like my skin just doesn’t absorb it anymore and it ends up sitting on the surface.Read More
