 👃🏻Shopaholic Reviews: Beauty Formulas Pore Strips👃🏻

Hello Loves! ☀️

☀️Today was the official start of summer here in Dubai 😭. Of all the seasons summer is the one I detest the most no offense to anyone. 😘 

☀️I hate the heat doing a double attack on my person, beating down relentlessly on my head and rising from the ground in suffocating waves. 😖 Summer here is no laughing matter and it takes a toll on your skin and hair as well. Which is why come summer I have to give my skincare regime a complete overhaul.

☀️One of the major issues with my skin as a result of the heat and humidity is clogged pores. After trying countless products I have finally found one that lives up to its claims. ☀️Yes the humble pore strip 😋. Don’t turn your nose up just yet✋🏻. I know most pore strips are simply : put crapola in a fancy box. They either don’t stick properly despite going over them repeatedly with a paint roller dipped in super glue 😒. Or they adhere so bad that you fear your skin coming off along with the strip 😱 And your pores remain clogged 😫.

☀️The Beauty Formulas strips promise you cleaner, less noticeable pores minus the torture of a skin peel.☀️They come in a pack of six and are partially precut to adhere to your skin with just water 💦. Goodbye crazy glue 👋🏻 Just wash your face, dampen the skin, peel the strip, press firmly to ensure no air bubbles are left and leave till stiff 10-15 mins. Then peel off and voila! ✨ Smooth, bump free skin, smaller pores and one heck of a satisfyingly nasty strip. 😝☀️I usually follow with quick exfoliation with a scrub and use a toner or a mask and that’s it! Pores be gone! This strip pulls out blackheads and whiteheads. Just be careful though and don’t use it if you have active or painful acne or any skin condition. 😘 I give this product 5/5!✨

☀️So that was part of my regimen for summer skin. How do you guys take care of your skin in the summer and what are some of your skin peeves? 

☀️Let me know here! 

Until next time 💋!

🎭Shopaholic Reviews : Sheet Masks 🎭 

🎭Hello Loves!

🎭So the weather here has started to warm up already 😭 which means it’s time to start investing in a summer skincare regime.

🎭I’ve been hearing a lot of rave reviews about sheer masks lately so I thought about giving them a try. I picked up this sheet mask from Boots at 25 aed. 


🎭As per instructions you are supposed to leave it on your face for 10-15 mins for the ultimate spa experience at a fraction of the cost 💸. The mask is a standard size which meant it was too large for my petite face 😋. It comes pre cut with openings for the eyes and mouth and contains the moisturizing and hydrating mixture and also made me look like a knife wielding murderer 🔪.Nope I’m not uploading that picture here 😋. 🎭Despite being at room temperature the mask felt very cold and to be honest slimy 😱. I didn’t enjoy the feel of it on my face at all 😮 honestly I couldn’t wait to take it off 😕. Afterwards my skin did feel soft and a bit sticky I had to wash my face and apply my regular moisturizer. ☹️

🎭So at least it wasn’t a total loss, I got to experience the latest beauty rage and realize it was not for me at all 😒 and I didn’t end up breaking the bank. 

🎭Have you guys tried sheet masks ? What was your experience like? Which brands would you recommend I try?

Let me know in the comments 😘

Until next time 💕

✨Shopaholics Sporadic Shopping Spree✨

Hello 💞guys,

Today’s post is completely unplanned. I was at the mall ( big surprise there 😉). No I had to visit my cell phone provider and that’s it I swear. Halfway through the mall Mother Nature 🌹decided to make a visit 😱. Yes I know TMI but bear with me it will make sense. To be honest I had been expecting her for a while but if she would just bloody make up her mind and show up on time for once we wouldn’t be having this conversation. 😡

So once I felt the warning signs I rummaged through my bag for my emergency 🚨 stash. Yes I always have the essentials since the visits have been sporadic for awhile now. However as 🍀luck would have it I was totally out. Which brings us to the “sporadic shopping spree” bit. I nipped into the nearest boots, which thankfully was deserted given, it was 1:30 on a weekday and no annoying sales people! 😱 I swear if anyone had approached me with the intention of pestering me to buy the latest anti aging on special I would have snapped 🔥.

I just wanted to pickup what I needed along with some non essentials to camouflage incase the cashier was a guy (yes I’m very paranoid in this regard 😥) and rush off to the nearest ladies room. 

I ended up buying what I needed, I got the Lillets,  point blank because the packaging was adorable 💗 I mean who wouldn’t want to buy that seriously 💕. Along with, drumroll 🥁:

✨A sheet mask.(They are trending in skincare and I wanted to know what exactly is so amazing about them).

✨A Mustela baby bar🍼& baby wash.  I love mustela products, ever since I became an aunt and I sneaked baby meemo’s baby wash 😋. I love the fragrance and how they aren’t harsh or drying to the skin.

✨And finally the Beauty Formula, face wipes. I’ve used their pore strips before and they worked amazingly well so I decided to see if these would work just as well. 

Then since I was near a Starbucks and quiet frankly worn out from stress and cramps I treated myself to the ultimate comfort food outside of home. A white chocolate caramel mocha 🍫☕️. 

So there you have it guys my unplanned mini shopping spree rant.  Hope you enjoyed that and do share your shopping stories with me I would love to hear them 😘.

Much love xoxo💋

🎉Blogger Recognition Award! 🎉

✨Hello Everyone!

✨It’s been quiet a while since I have done an award blog post. So I was delighted when TheBeauty&FoodLab nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award🎉.

✨Rules: Let’s get these out of the way first.

✨-Thank the blogger who nominated you while providing a link to the blog site.

TheBeauty&FoodLab is the property of the lovely Shehnaz. It is really a visual treat with stunning photographs, mouth watering recipes and beauty reviews. I highly recommend you check it out and many thanks to her for this nomination 😘

✨-Discuss the reason for starting the blog and talk a little bit about it.


✨I started the blog for two reasons actually. One I was very bored, 😐I had just started my studies, we had just moved to the UAE and I didn’t know a soul and had no idea what to do with my time.

Two I had a habit of writing really long statuses on Facebook 😋. Usually about something interesting/ outrageous or hilarious. A lot of my friends enjoyed reading those so they would encourage me to start a blog. However since I’m a technical dummy I really didn’t want to get into the entire HTML , coding or *%# crap. However as it so happened my first semester ended up being a stress fest and it got me riled that I sat and wrote a 1000 words about my experience. At that very time I got an email from the university asking for volunteer bloggers for the uni student blog. So feeling excited I sent in my blog post only to hear …Nothing.

So I thought to myself oh well it was probably a crappy piece and forgot all about it. The semester ended and about that time I got the same email again requesting blog posts from student volunteers. So I made a few tweaks and resent my post. And would you believe it heard back from the head of student affairs within a few mins. She wrote that she had seen my article before but had got caught up and it had slipped her mind and seeing it again today reminded her. 

She gave me directions to set up an account on WordPress and my post went live the same day and that fellow bloggers was the official start to my blogging journey. 😇 Here is a link to the article incase you want to take a look. 

Read Me😘

I made a separate account for my personal blogging . I had a hunch the university would not be interested in reading about the latest eyeliner I was currently fancying 😜.

And well, you guys know the rest about the blog. It’s mostly product reviews, funny stories and my love for posing for the camera 😋.

✨-Give 2 advices to fellow bloggers/readers.

Be genuine, your blog should reflect your personality.

 Write like you would talk about something, don’t use overly complicated vocabulary, just be yourself. 

✨-Nominate 15 bloggers who you think deserve this accolade.

This part takes me forever to be honest to link the blogs 😫.

I’ll nominate 5 people honestly there are so many I would love to do but the linking thing drives me insane 😖.

✨-Inform all the nominees by commenting on their blog.
