Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream: I was lucky enough to be gifted this, it’s on the pricier side but the good thing is you just need a pea- size amount on a daily basis. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now, every night, on my combination skin. It doesn’t make my skin greasy, it’s super light and I feel like my skin just drinks it up. my skin is noticeably softer and glowy. I haven’t noticed a difference in my eye wrinkles yet but it’s only been 2 weeks. Highly recommend this if you have dry skin or dry patches!
Elemis SOS Emergency Cream: Again, I was gifted this sample piece. It’s the mens version but both versions have been specifically designed for stressed or hormonal skin. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and it’s nowhere close to being empty. The Elemis team raved about S.O.S but I was skeptical because I’VE TRIED SO MANY ACNE CREAMS AND THEY MOSTLY JUST DRIED MY SKIN OUT. Thanks to PCOS, I get regular break outs 🙁 I noticed a difference in 2 days, whatever spots I had cleared up and now I only use it on new spots. No scarring or over-drying to report either, YAY! I think this is a holy grail product, I’m 100% purchasing a full size tube. It’s expensive but I think it’s a fail- proof product, especially if you’ve tried everything else.
Elie Saab Le Parfum Eau De Parfum Spray: My lovely friends gifted this to me for my Birthday, I think Elie Saab can do no Wrong so no surprises, I love it! It has a very strong jasmine base, lasts all day and makes me feel really posh. ‘Nuff said.
The Body Shop Moringa Body Mist: I love how summery this smells, it’s light and refreshing. Just all in all, a very yummy and affordable product.
Stargazer Pro Foundation: I scored this at BeautyWorld Middle East ( a beauty exhibition that happens once a year in Dubai), the only reason I bought it was because it was so cheap, haha! Turns out it’s actually pretty good. It’s high coverage so I have to be careful about not caking it on, but it blends really well and stays on for ages. The only downside is the shade, it’s a bit too yellow on me so I have to mix it with a little beige foundation to look alright.
SEPHORA COLLECTION 8 HR Mattifying Compact Foundation: I wear this over my foundation but on my lazy days, I just wear it over some concealer. It has a sheer coverage but to be honest, it doesn’t keep my skin matte all day or even survive Dubai’s Heat. I won’t be repurchasing when it’s over.
So, I’m currently obsessed with purple lips. I don’t really care if it looks good on me, I’m wearing them anyway because I love all 3! Mac’s Up The Amp stays on the longest of course, as it should, since it was the most expensive of the 3.
And since my beloved Mara Jade kept photobombing my attempts at a photo shoot, I’ve decided to graciously include her royal highness in this post.
I hope you’re having a lovely day, I’m so jealous of all the girls at FFFWeek, I wish I could be there. It looks like so much fun, I’m going to make it my mission to be there next year!
Until next time x
