Heaven Skincare Summer Glow Kit Review

Stay Radiant All Summer with Heaven Skincare by Deborah Mitchell

You all know by now that I absolutely love natural and organic skincare products. I was really delighted when I was sent this Summer Glow Kit of Heaven Skincare by Deborah Mitchell. I have tried it and share my experience with it in this post.

About Heaven Skincare :



Established in 1995, Deborah Mitchell, the founder and CEO of Heaven Skincare, formulated a highly-effective, organic range of products for the skin and body to enhance the potent power of nature in perfect harmony with the latest breakthroughs in beauty technology. Heaven Skincare is an UK luxurious organic skincare brand whose products specially the masks  are loved by royals and celebrities all over the world. The brand is all – natural, organic and holistic.
Heaven Skincare’s unique approach has been proven many times over to help skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, oily and blemished skin. 
Summer Glow Kit by Heaven Skincare :

Heaven Skincare founder and facialist to the stars Deborah Mitchell has put together the Summer Skin Glow range to ensure you have your best skin this summer. Whether you are braving the heat and humidity in Dubai or lounging on a beach in St. Tropez, the Summer Skin Glow will safeguard your skin from the harsh elements whilst nourishing it with all the nutrients your skin needs to stay luminous all summer long. It is meant to keep skin protected, hydrated, healthy and radiant.  I couldn’t have asked more for my Summer Skincare.
The Summer Skin Glow Kit range comes in a gorgeous pink beauty bag and includes the Hydro Cleansing Milk, Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel, Bee Polish, Youthful Moisturizer and an Emergency SOS Kit. All the products have  pump dispenser which makes it easy and very hygienic to pour out the product, avoiding any wastage and taking out just the amount you need.
The Hydro Cleansing Milk hydrates your skin with jojoba whilst deep cleaning and clearing blackheads. This milky cleanser is very light weight, cleanses any makeup residues and leaves my skin feeling light and baby soft. Absolutely love it.

The Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel is a balancing gel or Toner that revitalizes the skin and tightens pores. From the name you can understand that the texture is that of a gel and not those normal watery type Toner. This needs to be used after cleansing your face. Just pump a few drops on a piece of cotton and gently dab or wipe the face. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated and also traces out any makeup leftovers after cleansing. It is also a great makeup primer providing a smooth and flawless base. Just pat a few drops on the face with the help of your fingers.

The Youthful Moisturiser is my favourite from the whole lot. It smells divine and absorbs into my skin like a dream. It is extremely light weight, almost watery form and not at all greasy. I don’t even feel like that I have applied any cream or moisturiser. Since it is totally absorbed, it stays for a very long time and also keeps my makeup intact when applied on the top of it. No SPF factor is mentioned, meaning a separate Sunscreen needs to be used before stepping out. The Youthful Moisturizer reduces pigmentation and gives you supple and radiant skin. This one works wonders for my skin.
The Bee Polish relaxes fine lines with the uber-ingredient Abeetoxin® This exfoliant is suitable for sensitive skin. After applying it on the face, you might feel a tingling sensation, which means the product is working. I left it on for a little time only, as strong exfoliant could cause redness on my skin, then rinsed it off. To my surprise my face felt amazingly fresh, clean and soft after the application. 
The Bee Venom Mask, an organic cream that works to control the facial muscles for immediate tightening, lifting, and firming, whilst targeting frown lines and wrinkles has taken the beauty industry by storm. Kate Middleton is a huge fan of this award-winning product.
The SOS Kit is perfect thing to pick up when you are in a rush. It is the Ultimate organic mini skin rescue kit. It includes samples of 5 skincare products – Hydro Cleansing Milk, Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel, Bee Polish, WillowBee Mask and Cleanse, Overnight Success Oxygen Cream.The kit is available for purchase separately, so you can try the Heaven Skincare products out before you splurge on the whole kit. It the perfect travel companion for a short trip or you can call it the ‘Handy handbag size Heaven’.

A favourite of celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, and Kate Hudson Heaven Skincare has a broad range of organic products for all skin types. Heaven Skincare doesn’t stop at taking care of your face. They have various body care range products too.

Overall Review :

I am highly impressed by these products and definitely recommend you to try out the Summer Skin Glow Kit, particularly the Youthful Moisturiser. The results are impressive and insane.

Ferrarucci Professional Eyeshadow Palette Review

As a beauty blogger, I love experimenting with different brands. Today I will talk about Ferrarucci cosmetics that I came across recently. I tried their Eyeshadow palette and would like to share my experience with you all.




About Ferraruci Cosmetics :

Ferrarucci Cosmetics have just launched this new palette. The palette is available in 4 shades. There are 12 unique eyeshadows with different scheme of colours. They are one of the best eyeshadow palettes with beautiful colours. Their eyeshadows are super pigmented, creamy and so easy to blend. They glide so well on the hands too when swatched. All I can say is that it is the most unique, beautiful and a rare combination of shades all in one palette and one such kind available in the market. This palette is made in Turkey.

The packaging is a hard cardboard where the eyeshadows are placed with a transparent plastic cover so that you can see the shades. It is a book of eyeshadows that you open. They are very easy to carry along. They are affordable and high quality product.

Palmer’s Summer Essentials – Coconut Oil Protein Pack & Foot Magic Review

Hello Divas ! Summer is here and it is ripping the moisture away from everywhere, specially the hair, face and foot. Pampering is really required from head to toe to beat this summer. I am glad that Palmer’s has come to my rescue to give the skin and hair that extra love and care. Today, I will talk about the Palmer’s Summer Essentials that are amazing and much required at the moment. Read on to find out what they are and my experience with the same.

I have spoke about Palmer’s brand in many of my earlier posts too and it needs no introduction absolutely as it is really an old and trustworthy brand. Many people around the world have been using Palmer’s products since ages now. I am happy to be part of their brand ambassador program and share with you Palmer’s Summer Essentials – Palmer’s Coconut Oil Protein pack and Palmer’s Foot Magic. Without much ado, let’s go ahead with the review.
1. Palmer’s Foot Magic :

The feet is always a neglected area and many a times people walk barefoot at their homes. So this Foot cream really does magic and pampers your feet. 
Why is it a Summer Essential ?
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic, made with pure Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E and other natural emollients, provides a deep penetrating treatment for the feet. This unqiue formulation moisturizes, softens and smoothes even the roughest, driest skin. The addition of Peppermint Oil revitalizes sore, tired feet. 
Key Ingredients :
  • Magic Cocoa Butter : a rich natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky and  like buttery soft.
  • Vitamin E : a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretchmarks and imperfections on the skin,giving a more even and toned appearance. 
  • Peppermint Oil: revitalizes sore, tired feet.

My Review :
This Palmer’s Foot Magic smells divine. Maybe because of the combination of Peppermint Oil and Mango Butter. Yummy! Hey, we are not talking about food are we? The word ‘Mango’ does drive everyone crazy specially in the summers. I applied this Foot Magic cream on my feet after washing and drying in the night time for a week. The texture of consistency of this cream is that of a balm and it is yellow/mango colour gel thanks to the Mango Butter. Though it is mentioned on the pack to leave it overnight with a pair of socks on your feet, I left it on its own as it is very hot. I wake up with Baby bum soft feet. My feet really bless me and they feel a lot better. All cracks are filled and no more dry flaky skin !

This is a great cream to use in between your pedicure appointments to help your feet look intact. It has become a part of my daily ritual and a great summer essential. It is really more effective than all the foot creams that I have tried so far. It really does what its name says, ‘Magic’ .
2. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Protein Pack :


I have got protein treatments mostly at a salon and never tried a protein pack at home. So I was more than excited to try it on as my hair has become dry specially after the hair colour. 
Why is it a Summer Essential ?
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula products contain ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoï, infused with Tiaré flower petals. These raw, natural ingredients deeply hydrate, repair damage and give hair incredible shine. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Deep Conditioning Protein Pack is a moisture-intensive treatment that helps strengthen and repair weak, fragile or damaged hair. No Sulfates • No Parabens • No Phthalates • No Mineral Oil • No Gluten • No Dyes.
Key Ingredients :
  • Coconut Oil : restores essential moisture. 
  • Monoï Oil : hydrates and improves manageability.
  • Keratin Protein : strengthens and repairs.
  • Silk Protein : restores high-gloss shine.
  • Coconut Milk : detangles and combats frizz.
My Review :
Again this Palmer’s Coconut Oil smells divine and it lingers on till the next day too. You can also apply after shampoo, coating strands evenly, focusing on the ends and leave it for 10-20 minutes before rinsing or use it as an overnight treatment. I applied it overnight to get the best possible result, but didn’t cover with any plastic cap as recommended in the directions, as I find it uncomfortable while sleeping. The packet is of 60 g and is good enough for 2 applications. It is a thick white cream which is easy to apply on the hair and glides on well. It is not at all greasy or oily.

Back side of the pack

I rinsed it the next day morning. I was amazed with the results. I hair definitely looked and felt great, hydrated and smooth and much better than before. I also like the fact that it is natural and free from those chemicals. Absolutely love this and definitely my hair has found a new best friend !

It can sting the eyes a bit, so keep it off them.
Overall Review :
Thank you Palmer’s for introducing me to such fantastic and affordable products. They are easily available at all pharmacies and leading supermarkets and hypermarkets. For more information log on to their website, clicking here .

Shirley Conlon Organics Rosehip Oil is lightweight and smells amazing. Too good for my skin which is dry and sensitive. It is not at all greasy, doesn’t leave a residue and gets absorbed quickly. I feel my skin totally hydrated and glowing. It is suitable for all skin types. It comes with a pump dispenser, which makes it hygienic and easy to pour out the desired amount. You need to apply 3 to 4 drops on clean damp skin twice a day and can be used alone or under moisturiser. I just love it for its anti-ageing properties and generally prefer to use it in the night time only and day time additionally when I am at home.

2. Absolution Le Soin Regard :


Absolution is a lovely French brand was started by Isabella Carron and is certified organic by Ecocert. The Eye Contour Booster by Absolution cosmetics is An anti-ageing eye contour formula which combats the signs of aging by firming, regenerating, smoothing and brightening the area around eyes. It reduces puffiness, fine lines, dark circles, tightens skin around the eyes. while improving the overall look of skin around the eyes.

This is a light weight pearly light brown cream, not at all greasy, gets totally absorbed and smells heavenly. It is suitable for all skin types. It has a pump dispenser too, which makes it very hygienic. Only a little amount does the job, so make sure not to pour out so much. Gently tap or dab with fingertips from the inside to the outer corner of the eye. I feel the eye area very hydrated and very cool after its application. This eye cream really highlights the under eye area, giving it a shiny finish. It supports healthy circulation for the under eye area and can be applied on the lids as well without causing any irritation, hence making the eye area smoother and plumper. Le Soin Regard can be applied under or over makeup. This product is 99% natural and 65% organic. In summer, place in the refrigerator for a fresh and immediate smoothing effect.

Overall Review :
I am so glad that I found Greenchicme and absolutely love both the products that I tried. I can see a major change in my skin texture and find it hydrated, plumpy and glowing. Though it might be on a higher range but it is totally worth for natural and organic products and the benefits that provide to your skin.

Tple Professional Makeup Brush Set Review

Hello Divas! I am sure you all would agree that Makeup is an art and the perfect or best art can be achieved only with great brushes. The brushes are fundamental tool for a makeup artist, whether professional or amateur. So it is very important to have good quality brushes. As a beauty blogger, I keep experimenting with my looks and love to try different brushes. Recently I came across a very new brand of brushes – ‘Tple Professional’ and I was really excited to try them on. I really thank the brand for trusting me and sending them across for review. In today’s post I shall talk about these beautiful Tple Professional brushes.


About Tple Professional :
T’Ple is a UAE home-based brand established since January 2017. They are at the moment specialised in Make up tools (Brushes) & False Eyelashes (Manufacturer in PRC) and Cosmetics (Manufacturer in Canada). 
First Impression/Packaging :

I was zapped to see the packaging and quality of Tple Professional Brush Set. The Brushes are so soft and have a very good finish. The handles of the brushes look luxurious with black and rose gold, are smooth and easy to grip. Each brush was individually packed inside the cosmetic clutch. The cosmetic bag is also very high end. The whole set can be compared to high end brands like Zoeva.

About Tple Professional Makeup Brush Set:



The set comes with 8 brushes. Let us look at all the brushes in detail.
1. Powder brush – Features with a large and soft rounded brush, made by synthetic, suitable for even powder application.
2. Foundation blending brush – Applying and blending foundation and base powder.

3. Contouring brush – Perfect choice for contouring and blending.

4. Bronzer brush – Made by natural goat hair which is blissfully soft, for contouring and shading on pressed or loose powder blusher or bronzer.

5. Concealer brush – Applying the concealer products around the eyes or other blemishes area, made by synthetic 
6. Blending brush – Providing the ultra-smooth transitions between eyeshadows. Perfect for blending.

8. Wing eyeliner brush – Made by synthetic, small angled brush head, helps applying the perfect wing eyeliner look. 


My Review/Experience :
It was love at first sight with Tple Professional Makeup Brushes. The Bristles of the brushes are very soft and have an impressive and luxurious design. Their quality can be compared to any high end brushes. They are very easy to work with no fall out and don’t absorb the product so much too. You can blend your makeup very well with it. These 8 brushes are specially good for beginners because that is all that you need for your full face makeup.
Do you know how to check the quality of makeup brushes? There should be no gap between the handle/holder and the bristles. Hold the bristles down and check. There was no gap and the bristles were held tightly to the brush handle. After using these brushes, I did wash them too to test their actual quality. I was not at all disappointed. There was no shedding at all and the handles still stay sturdy. Yay! Tple Professional Makeup Brushes pass the test. 
Overall Review :
Being new in the market, I should say Tple Professional Makeup Brushes stood in line with other high end makeup brushes. I am super happy that I found these brushes and they are part of my makeup game now. Totally recommend it and should definitely give them a try, you won’t be disappointed at all. If someone is looking for high quality and affordable makeup brushes, then this is it. I definitely look forward to try other products from the Tple Professional Brand as they look very promising and heard good reviews about them too.
Price :
Tple Professional Makeup Brushes Set are priced at AED 125.

Sanctuary Spa Air – Whipped Soufflé Scrub & White Lily and Damask Rose Hand Lotion Review

We all love pampering. Don’t we? But what if we get to pamper ourselves at the comfort of our home? That would be fabulous if you had the right products and luckily I came across one such brand called ‘Sanctuary Spa’.  They are known as your own ‘Spa in a Jar’. I was quite excited to try these as many YouTubers have raved about it. In today’s post I will share my experience about 2 products that I tried from the range.


About Sanctuary Spa :
The Sanctuary Spa was born as the ultimate act of love, opened in 1977 by a man madly in love with his ballerina wife where the ballerinas of the Royal Opera House would retreat to relax, unwind and recover. Using luxurious formulations, they launched the indulgent Sanctuary Spa body care range in 1988 with the help of their therapists. The Sanctuary Spa products are packed precious oils, rich butters and iconic fragrances. They are one of the leading brands in facial oils, commonly known as Superfoods for skin and the leading indulgent body care brand in the UK. I am so glad that they have now arrived in Dubai.
Now about the Products –
1. Sanctuary Spa Air-Whipped Soufflé Scrub :
Soufflé sounds interesting right and everyone loves it that too with a lovely fragrance. Bliss ! This scrub is a hybrid of their in-shower body scrub and creme soufflé. It comes in a huge plastic jar, which a good quantity to last for several months.

Indulge in a real treat for your skin with this creamy soufflé. Nourishing shea butter, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil & cotton extracts have been whipped together with rice particles & jojoba beads into this decadent body scrub. The soufflé scrub is really gentle on the skin has a rich creamy formula, hence you don’t feel those tiny exfoliating granules. It is for all skin types and marvelous for my sensitive skin. I love using this once or twice a week. Just scoop a generous, fluffy handful onto warm wet skin & massage gently. This scrub leaves skin feeling instantly soft, smooth & beautifully polished.

2. Sanctuary Spa White Lily and Damask Rose Hand Lotion :
This is something that I want it everywhere. In my bedroom, on my work desk or even in the kitchen. I love to use this every time and anytime. It is one of the huge hand lotions bottles that you see in a spa. Yes, you feel like owning one right? The best part is that it comes with a pump dispenser which makes it easy to pour and hygienic too. 
This is a luxurious lotion with nourishing shea butter, lotus oil, aloe vera and a delicate fragrance so you can use it throughout the day. Hands need as much care as our faces; this lotion is designed to be used several times a day – whenever you wash your hands or before you go out. With kids, I tend to wash my hands regularly, so it really nourishes my hand and gives that protective care. It is super-light containing comforting aloe vera, protective lotus oil and white tea to help restore and maintain beautiful hands. It is not at all sticky or greasy and gets absorbed on to the hands quickly. I am so much in love with this lotion. Just love the amazing fragrance that it leaves on my hands. My daughter loves this too and finds reasons to apply it again and again.

Overall Review :

Totally in love with the Sanctuary Spa products that I tried and quite interested to try out other products from the range too as they smell divine. Moreover they are reasonable too. So if you are looking for afforable spa products then this is it girls. Their products are a bomb and you won’t be disappointed. They are expertly created to revive, uplift & replenish. So whether its 20 seconds or 30 minutes simply take a breath & enjoy your sanctuary.
