Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner

I have always made it a point to include a toner in my skin care routine.But the results have been sort of borderline at best. All the toners that i have been able to try out have been from the western brands (with loads of alcohol) and there was a time i stopped using them completely , simply because they were drying my combination skin to an extent that it started to flake .Not a good look when you have to contend with acne as well.
I got a sample of this toner with my first innisfree purchase and decided to give it a try.

Aoe Vera gel in Pakistan

Aloe vera gel is a staple of my skin care routine and that has been the case for a while now. I think everyone by now knows about the benefits of aloe for skin (face and body) .
Aloe gel comes from aloe vera plant, mostly used to soothe burns and sun damage and as an antiseptic for superficial wounds.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask - Review

This mask is one of those products that i have been coveting from afar for a very long time , with no way to get my hands on it ( as innisfree is not available in Pakistan).Well .... long story short , dad's trip to Malaysia provided me with the opportunity to get my hands on a few products from the brand , including this much anticipated clay mask.

I had been putting it off for while but since I'm all free now so I decided to do it today . This post contains some cute Asian earrings that he got us from his trip.

Lemon power

Winter weather brings with it dry flaky skin and rough hands , feet.Even as a teenager i never had as much issue with skin care in summer as i had in winter.All of my skin care regimen suddenly stopped doing its job and i never knew how to handle this problem.Until i discovered the power of this natural jewel.

Its finally winter in Karachi.We've had the first rainfall of the season and the customary sweaters and shawls and khaddar collections are out in full bloom.So i decided it was time for a shoe haul.

Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 instant Soothing serum

When i tried the Olay total effects cream last year i got a sample size of this serum along with it.I tried it and was pretty impressed with the results.But for some reason i never got around to buying the full sized product till now.

This is supposed to be anti aging instant smoothing serum.I use it under my night cream / moisturizer.The plastic pump bottle contains 50 ml of product , which theoretically should last up to a month with daily use.

Eid ul Azha 2014

 A belated Eid Mubarak to all . This Eid post is slightly late but better late than never right? ;-) So Like always Allah blessed us with a very fun celebration this time around as well  ,  and it became extra special because we welcomed our niece into the world as well & on chand raat no less ;-) The neighborhood kids had a blast parading their qurbanis from one end of the street to the other.For a while there the whole street looked like a makeshift zoo.

I got this product mainly because i wanted to give something with Moroccan oil as an ingredient a try.

A trip to the famous Sunday Bazar

I have lived a good portion of my adult life in the beautiful city of Karachi.This city has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment.Parks , shopping malls , cinemas, restaurants , and of course the amazing coastline . But to me the most unique thing about Karachi are its eclectic weekend bazaars that sprout up around different parts of the city on Saturday and Sunday.The best known of these is the Sunday market in DHA.
It has everything that a person can desire , from the mundane (fruits , veggies , grocery items ) to the exotic (antiques , jewellery , electronics). Shoes , bags , scarves , clothes you name it .It is a bargain hunters paradise.The only thing i wouldn't advise buying is the makeup.Its all FAKE.If you are from Karachi and have never visited than you are missing a real treat and if you are a visitor , don't miss a trip here for anything

Pink is the name of the game :-)

Summer is the time for new beginnings , of balmy weather and soft hues.Karachi (the love of my life) sort of over compensates for the weather every year and sometimes "balmy" gets down right unpleasant.Not many colors can pull of cool and calm , when the weather is anything but.Unless its a shade of pink.Here we share a few pinks from our humble collection , which we are totally in love with :-)

Nair Wax Strips

When it comes to this kind of strips , the market is flooded with multiple brands.In all shapes & sizes and with varying prices.I recently bought a pack of the ones from Nair and after using them a few times i have come to the conclusion that using these pre made wax strips is sort of hit and miss .

Boots essential cucumber eye gel

This is another eye gel that we have been trying for the last few weeks.It is a pretty straight forward product in my opinion so i think i have got the hang of what it is all about even though i still have to finish the whole tube.

Summer Makeup Essentials

Summer is the time for new beginnings and a complete change in skin care priorities.Where winter is all about moisture and keeping the dry and damaged skin at bay , summer is about going light and not trying so hard :-)
Summers here in Karachi are all about sunshine (sometimes brutally so) . Oily T zones , acne and sun burns become the disasters to avoid by anyone who cares about their skin.
Below i have compiled a list of all the products that i use on a daily basis during summer months.My priority is nice looking , hydrated skin.

Garnier Skin Naturals Fairness Facewash

Since Garnier has become available locally in Pakistan , a wide range of its products have flooded the market.The most prominent ones being from the "fairness" range .We got to try this face wash purely by luck because we got this one instead when we ran out of our regular Clean & clear.
