Add Mother Nature to your New Skin care Routine

It is always good to learn about new products in this brewing beauty industry. But, what is more wonderful than adding Mother Nature to your skincare routine? In a recent event, I was introduced to brands like Balanced Guru, Konjac Sponge Co., Rahua and Urban Veda at a very lovely place called Farmer’s Garden Cafe at Al Wasl Vita, Jumeirah by Beautiful Brands. (If you are a health enthusiast, a “go green” activist or just looking to enhance your family lifestyle, you will find you need at The Farmer’s Garden ! This cute cafe has lot of organic stuff that you would love to stock on.)


These Beautiful Brands products are already popular worldwide and now launched in UAE. What is even more interesting, is that you can do a mini facial with these beautiful products, just the way I did at the product launch event, at your convenience at home.

Let’s have a look at some of the Event pics :-

No more should I bother to step out in this harsh sun. Should you decide to stay here in Dubai or travel outside, this exclusive Bioderma GlamBox is perfect for the moody weather. I am glad to have Bioderma sunscreen with SPF 100 in my Glambox. ☺

Spring and Summer collection – Sleek Blushes, Review with Swatches – Part 2 – Blush by 3 Palettes

We have had a look at the Individual blushers. So are you ready to have a look at the Blush by 3 palettes? Let me tell you, each and every palette is beautiful and designed for various skin tones. It is difficult to just pick one. Moreover they are really reasonable compared to high end brands. Blush by 3 palette include three complementary shades, each designed with its own distinctive finish, from rich shimmers to intense matte shades. It is the ultimate cheeky palette offering you three times the impact.

They are available in seven colour combinations designed to suit all skin tones. Each shade can be used alone or layered for a unique look. Each palette has a versatile selection of shades to take your makeup from day to night and keep it on trend from season to season. It is a mirrored compact so need to carry a separate small mirror in your bag.

My favourites are Californ.I.A, Pumpkin, Lace and Pink Lemonade.

Here are the pictures and swatches of the Blush by 3 palettes :-

Price – Individual blushers – Dh 65 (shown in the earlier post)
            Blush by 3 palette – Dh 150

Rating – 4.8/5

They are really affordable and it is good quality makeup at a reasonable price. As compared to high end brands, which have single blusher charged at Dh 140 and a palette charged at Dh 210, this Sleek blushers and palette is definitely a must buy.

Availability – Sleek makeup is now available at Alisha Ahuja’s Pro Make up store. You can reach her at 050-5688292 .
