TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Range Review

All you need is great Hair !…
And for great Hair you need great products. The last time I put up a post on TRESemmé 24 Hour Body range, someone suggested me to try TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Range. I tried all these products from TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Range over a period of 2 weeks or so and absolutely loved it. I will share my thoughts about this post.
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo is a very gentle, lower-sulphate Shampoo and leaves your hair gorgeously sleek & controls frizzy for 48 hours.
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner helps restore Keratin and nourishes each strand to leave hair gorgeously straighter, Shinier and more manageable. It fights frizzy, detangles knots and helps you tame baby hair.
Now my favourite out of the whole lot – TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Masque.  I just love Hair masks. You can use this instead of conditioner once a week. This is an in shower mask which you apply after shampoo and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse it off. This intensive hair mask, moisturises your hair, seals strands to fight humidity, control frizz, repairs any damage due to styling, leaving hair smooth and shiny.
After Shampooing & conditioning, and before styling you should use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray.  It locks in your style and help shield hair from the damaging effects of heat styling & relax in shine. It ensures dry damaged hair doesn’t get frizzier with styling.In All, I absolutely recommend this range for any one who is looking for affordable Keratin Range and very less sulphate Shampoo. It leaves my hair soft, shiny, smooth, frizz free and so manageable. You must definitely get the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Masque. You will love and thank me later.

They are my new favourites. You can get 25% off on TRESemmé, Vaseline, Dove, Ponds and many other such products  when you buy it with my code BBARf5na4 at check out from @souquae. Link is in bio. Hurry up as it is a limited time offer.
Have you tried these products earlier? Which one is your favourite from this range?

Tresemme Botanix Range – Shampoo & Conditioner Review and Discount Code

Happiness is a good HAIR day!

I have grown up using a lot of drugstore hair products and little did I know more about it then. It has always been a learning journey with brands. Tresemme is a very good affordable hair care brand and doesn’t have harmful ingredients. I have been using the TRESemme Botanix Shampoo & Conditioner for quite some time and today I will share my thoughts about them.

About TRESemme :
TRESemme is an American brand of haircare products first manufactured by Godefroy Manufacturing Company in St. Louis, Missouri, United States, Starting in 1947 It was named after renowned haircare expert Edna Emme. The brand name is a phonetic translation of “well-loved” in French (Tres-aime).
TRESemme Botanix Range :
Specially Crafted formulas in the Botanix Nourish & Replenish along with Coconut milk, Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera, create a finest Bonatical Blend, that gently cleanse while soothing and nourishing hair and leave the hair feeling nourished and beautifully soft. The Botanix Range is free from parabens, dyes and silicons. They deliver salon-quality performance with every wash.
Packaging :
The packaging is very simple. They come in large plastic bottles. Both have a press on lid with a small opening that is enough to pour in the correct amount of product and avoid over spilling. Since they are huge they can’t be carried for travel unless you pour them in smaller bottles.
Fragrance description
TRESemme Botanix Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner : Waterlily and a hint of plum add freshness to this addictive fragrance signature which stars green fig milk and creamy coconut blended with precious sandalwood and white musk.
My Verdict :
Both the TRESemme Botanix Nourish & Replenish Shampoo & Conditioner smell amazing and fruity. 

The cleansing Shampoo clarifies and gently removes build-up and heavy residues that diminish your hair’s shine. It is transparent and only a small amount of shampoo does the job as it lathers well. This formula, containing vitamin C and extracts of grapefruit and lemon, is gentle enough for daily use and will purify your hair for that fresh, just-left-the-salon feel. My hair feels soft, smooth and nourished.

The Conditioner is pearly white and is medium thick. Nourishing conditioner immediately silkens and smooths the hair, leaving it looking healthy.

Overall Opinion :
Both TRESemme Botanix Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner work great for my dry and a bit frizzy hair. I love how my hair feels after using them. So I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for affordable haircare range. Also they are free from parabens, dyes and silicons, so that is another plus point. Yes, last but not the least, I have a good news for you ! I have a discount code on all TRESemme products !

Discount code on TRESemme and Vaseline and other Unilever products : 
Buy them at 25% off when you use my discount code ‘BBARf5na4’ at check out, from Souq.com today! Just go to this link. Hurry up ! Offer valid for a limited period only !

How fabulous is that ! No more going to the supermarket as you can shop at the convenience of your home.

Isadora Products Review

Looks like 2018 just started and now we are already on 31st January.  Time just flies. New makeup always brings a smile on your face. As a beauty blogger, I try out many new brands and I am glad that I came across Isadora cosmetics. Though it is a drugstore product but the quality is amazing. Today I shall review some of their products.

Below is a quick review of 3 Isadora cosmetics products that I have tried over a period of time –
1. Isadora Volume & Curl Mascara 12 Black Brown – It has a beautiful curled wand giving you the perfect Volume and Curl for your lashes, the false lash effect. It stays for a long time and does not flake. It is fragrance free and Ophthalmologically tested.
2. Isadora Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick – 54 Dusty Rose – It is a very beautiful natural or nude pink for everyday wear and is very hydrating. The pointed chiselled shape of the lipstick makes it perfect to shape the lips and you do not require a lip pencil at all. It is very pigmented but fades a bit away after a meal. I am okay with the reapplication as it doesn’t suck the life out my lips. It is fragrance free and Clinically tested.

You can find the swatch of the lipstick below.

3. Isadora Perfect Contour Kajal 68 Steel Grey – I have fallen in love with this product. It is so long lasting and does not smudge. I have used it as an eyeliner as well as Kajal and loved it both ways. It was difficult to remove with micellar water even. It is very pigmented too. It is fragrance free and Clinically tested as well.
Isadora cosmetics products are available at Lifestyle stores at Centrepointme, xpressionsstyle and Paris Gallery and are very reasonable. A big plus point is that Isadora products are fragrance free. They are a good dupe of many high end brands.
Have you tried any of these products or any other Isadora cosmtics products? Feel free to mention your picks in the comments below.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Star Products – Moisturizing Body Oil and 24 Hour Moisturiser Review

Glowing Skin is always in.

It is winters and also the most beautiful festive time of the year. I was more than happy when Palmer’s sent me an early Christmas gift with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Star Products, i.e. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula 24 Hour Moisturiser along with a cute and bright Yearly planner, Christmas and New Year’s greeting card and some cute candies. Palmer’s really know how to spoil their Brand Ambassadors with so much love. Today I will be reviewing these 2 Star Products from the Cocoa Butter Formula Range.


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil :
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil is a light scented oil specially formulated with pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E to help soften and soothe rough, dry skin. This rich formula absorbs quickly, allowing you to put on even the most delicate of fabrics immediately. It is not at all greasy and I can use it for daytime as well. It has a flip top cap for easy application.
A base of soybean, sesame and safflower oils help the rich cocoa butter and vitamin E contained in this oil flow over the body. It locks in moisture for soft, silky skin with shine.
Apply Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil onto damp skin after a shower or bath, poured directly into the bath or use it as a hydrating bath oil. A little goes a long way so you don’t need much each time. This makes a reasonably priced product even better value on a price-per-use basis. The hydrating and glowing effect lasts for the whole day. You can even mix it with your daily moisturiser and apply, to lock in the moisture for winters. It is also perfect if you want to use it for a body massage and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula 24 Hour Moisturizer :
The original Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula moisturizer! A unique solid formula that contains concentrated Cocoa Butter along with Vitamin E to soften, smooth and relieve rough, dry skin.Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Original Solid Formula,made with pure Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E, in a soothing emollient base, heals and softens rough,dry skin, helps smooth and blend unattractive marks and scars and tones skin.

It is ideal for deep moisturization, including overnight treatments and widely recommended for stretch marks during and after pregnancy. This lotion is cream in colour. So if you are looking to revive your dry skin, then your search stops right here. With continuous use of this product your skin game will be a different ball game altogether.

I have used this particular product before and also reviewed it earlier too. You may want to read it here and here too.
Key Ingredients :
The key ingredients for both the star products are the same, which are :
Cocoa Butter : a rich natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, transforming even the roughest,driest areas into buttery soft skin.
Vitamin E : a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance.
Palmer’s products are very reasonable and available at Boots pharmacies and some supermarkets across UAE and also available online at mumzworld.com.
Overall Review :
I am really happy with Palmer’s Star products and these are just the products required for winters.  It is difficult to choose which is my favourite between the 2. But yes, if you are looking for affordable and quality skincare for these winters, then I will definitely recommend to go ahead and purchase Palmer’s Star Products.Have you tried any of these products or any other Palmer’s products earlier? Do let me know in the comments below. Thank you Palmer’s once again for this wonderful brand experience and gift.

Being Palmer’s Brand Ambassador I got these products complimentary for review. However the opinion posted here are of my own and honest.

Max Factor Pan Stik Review

Max Factor is a very high quality drugstore brand and is often under rated. I am totally in love with the brand products and quality. I recently tried 2 shades of Max Factor Pan Stiks which are used for Contouring and Highlighting to achieve that proper sculpted look. Did they stand at par along with other products or disappoint me? Read ahead to find out.

Max Factor Pan Stik are available in 12 shades. The creamy texture can be used to Contour, Bronze, highlight or it can be used as foundation even.
Perfect Contouring & Highlighting : 
Contouring and Highlighting using the Pan Stik Cool Bronze 97 & True Beige 12 to achieve a defined face look, with contoured features. I used True Beige to highlight under eyes, along the cheekbones and throughout the T-zone as well. Apply Cool Bronze to the apples of the cheeks and T-zone Contour.
My Experience :
The creamy texture of the Pan Stik provides a soft and dewy finish. The formula is very pigmented, so I suggest you to go easy and apply small amount at a time. You can apply the Pan Stik directly on your face as well. The application is very smooth and glides easily. They are very easy to blend. You can blend with brush or damp sponge and Set up with compact powder.
It is very handy and convenient specially for touch up on the go. It provides great coverage for blemishes and pigmentation and doesn’t really settle on the fine lines. It provides full coverage.
It is suitable for Dry skin. For Oily skin, I would suggest to set it up with translucent or compact powder.
I have tried them earlier too as it came with Max Factor ‘Beauty with No Extremes’ Transformation Kit. You may want to read that review here.
Overall Review :
I am very happy with the finish of Max factor Pan Stik and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for creamy highlighter and bronzer. The pigmentation and quality of the product is just amazing.
Price :
Max Factor Pan Stik is priced at AED 44 and is available at Lifestyle stores, Boots Pharmacies and Carrefour Supermarkets across UAE.

Disclaimer :
Though I got these products complimentary for testing from Influensterme and Maxfactorarabia, my opinion is of my own and honest.

Have you tried these products earlier? Do let me know in the comments below. Also, if you have any suggestions, do not hesitate to contact me. Would appreciate your support on all my social media platforms.
Until next time, see ya !

Quattro Restaurant, Dubai Review

Dubai has restaurants serving Mexican and Italian in every nook and corner, but when it comes to progressive cuisine with twist nothing beats Quattro. To tell you the truth this was my second visit, the first one not being impressive, I was a little skeptical about the experience. Quattro is a bliss for vegetarians. 

Me and my spouse visited on our anniversary day, and the treatment given was a seven-star. Fortunately, we booked in advance, to our surprise the restaurant was packed as we entered. The staff escorted us to the corner table, which was followed by flow of dishes, one at a time which left us spellbound. At the end, there was no room left for more. 

Mocktails like spicy watermelon cooler and classic mojito, served as icebreakers. As we got comfortable, came taquitos, a gluten and guilt free, protein filled snack spiced with jalapenos, topped with yummy avocado ice-cream adding appeal. 
We were awestruck with Risotto Palle, a fancy preparation of cream risotto and cheese, pierced with tiny test tubes of chili oil in simple words. The taste was equally good.

Eight unique dips, 4 Italian and 4 Mexican, were provided which were impressive. Just when we thought we were ready for main dish, came another surprise in form of olive and mushroom crostini. Juicy olives burst open in our mouth, flooding the taste buds, while mushrooms floated for their survival, on toasted baguette. 

Margherita upside down sounded too corny for a main dish, and can be compared to a roller coaster ride in a food theme park. It was grilled with cheese and tomato salsa on top and tasted awesome to the core.

This was followed by Jalapeno Riso Cottage Cheese Platter which was a spicy rich medley of risotto rice with a large chunk of baked cottage cheese served along with pepper sauce. The serving was huge and we could suffice only with half. 

Grilled cheese Fajitas were worth grabbing with grilled veggies filling & fiery chili sauce along with condiments like sour cream, Mexican beans and Pico de Galle. 

I could write a separate review for exhaustive desserts which are eggless and gelatin free, however we just managed to try two after spoiling ourselves with all above dishes. Chocolate Saturn came in a form of chocolate shell filled with mousse. Hot chocolate soup was dripped over the shell splitting it open and revealing the orange & mango jello, like a pearl inside an oyster. White chocolate added to the excitement. 

If this is not enough to drip your saliva, TresLaches – a vanilla flavored cake was exclusively served to us as an anniversary special. I will leave you here without giving more details as words cannot justify the real experience. 

A visit to this restaurant is must!

GOSH Summer 2017 Collection Review – GOSH My Favourite Mascara, GOSH Lumi Drops, GOSH Strobe ‘N Glow Kit & GOSH 24H Pro Liner

Come summer and I am eagerly awaiting the haul from GOSH Cosmetics. And I tell you haul is an understatement. The bag was filled with lavish products like My Favorite Mascara, Lumi Drops, Strobe ‘N Glow Kit and 24 H Pro Liner. You want to know why these products are favourites? Keep reading!

By now all of you know that GOSH is one of my favourite drugstore brand and it needs no introduction. All GOSH products are paraben and perfume free and that I why I love them so much.

GOSH cosmetics has got some real gems in their 2017 collection. Without further ado, let’s go ahead with the review.

1. GOSH My Favorite Mascara :
“No Make Up Look” is the in-thing and if you are the one looking for natural look then this is the product for you. It gives razor sharp definition to each lash while enhancing the volume using the short bristles of brush. The longer bristles elongate the lashes. There is no great dramatic transformation with this wand, just a subtle enhancement of the lashes. Now if you are chopping onions or running on a treadmill this product is ideal as the film forming agent resists the tears as well as humidity. 

2. GOSH Lumi Drops :
If all you want is to have a picture perfect without using any filters, GOSH Lumi Drops is the light weight strobing companion you should have in your hand bag. Its perfume and paraben free and can be mixed with foundation, day cream and body lotion making it a favorite choice. It is apt for summers when you are looking for light makeup. The reflective pigments give a shimmery finish and illuminates the skin with natural glow. The Lumi drops are easy to dispense from the dropper and blends like a dream.  I got the shade 014 Gold and here is the swatch of the same.

In roomlight with no filter

3. GOSH Strobe ‘N Glow Kit :
This kit is available in 2 Shades – 001 Highlight and 002 Blush. I got the shade 002 Blush to try. GOSH Strobe ‘N Glow Kit is 4 in 1 glow kit which includes highlighter and blusher. This quattro gives you life. All 4 color are soft and creamy, complimenting the different skin tones. It is rich in color and pigmentation. The shades are easy to mix/match and blend seamlessly defining and enhancing best features of the user. The product is paraben and perfume free to give product a fresh outlook. Let me tell you, GOSH being a drugstore brand, the highlighters of this Glow Kit are brilliant and can be compared to any high end brand.  The middle 2 shades are my favourite. Below is the swatch of the same. I feel the pic doesn’t do total justice as to how beautiful the quad is.

4. GOSH 24h Pro Liner :
24H Pro Liner is the right choice when you need Kajal and Eyeliner in one, lasting for 24 hours. Weather you are gymming or swimming, this can last for long as it is water proof, smudge proof and transfer proof. Its Soft and Creamy texture allows optima play time and blending before setting on the lid. It doesn’t flake, fade or crease and last for almost a day saving a lot of time in process. It is suitable for the waterline and comes with a smudger and sharpener. I have got the shade 002 Carbon Black. It has a rich colour pay off and is jet black. Again it is Perfume and Paraben free

Overall Review :
All the products from the GOSH Summer Collection are fabulous and it is difficult to chose one as my favourite. But my heart goes more to the Strobe ‘N Glow Kit and I feel it is a must have. If you are looking for good drugstore brands with the quality of high end brand then I feel you should definitely try out GOSH cosmetics products.

Price :
GOSH is available at all Lifestyle stores and Boots Middle East Pharmacies across UAE.
GOSH My Favourite Mascara – AED 59
GOSH Lumi Drops – AED 70
GOSH Strobe ‘N Glow Kit – AED 125
GOSH 24h Pro Liner – AED 49

Have you tried any of these GOSH cosmetics products? What are your thoughts ? Which is your favourite amongst them?
