ShopaholicBlogs Reviews: Biossance Peptide Eye gel✨

🌱Hola compańeros bloggers✨

🌱Today’s product review is about a brand that has been in the spotlight 🔦 for a while now @biossance.

🌱The company founded in Berkeley, California utilizes biotechnology to create safe, effective skincare for the skin and the environment.

🌱The star ✨ingredient featured in all their products is plant derived (their’s is derived from sugarcane). Squalene oil which is a weightless oil that instantly moisturizes the skin and locks in moisture.

🌱The eye gel contains squalene oil, Eyeseryl & Argiline to reduce dark circles and puffiness and Swiss apple🍎stem extract to brighten the under eye area.

🌱The gel itself is very light in texture, it goes on smoothly and doesn’t irritate the eyes. However since I have very dry skin under the eyes I do have to follow it up with an undereye cream since I don’t find it moisturizing enough.

🌱In terms of lightening dark circles I haven’t really noticed a significant difference 😕there. Will I continue using it maybe 🤔unless I find something better and more affordable since this is $54 for 15ml of product 💸. Have you tried this? How was your experience?

Shopaholic✨Reviews : Erzulie Cosmetics 🍃

Hola companeros blogueros❣️➡️Hello fellow bloggers 😘

Lol😀 Incase you were wondering what’s going onI’ve recently started learning Spanish so I’m trying to practice it every chance I get 😇. Anyways back to today’s blog post Today I’ll be reviewing another Etsy brand : Erzuliecosmetics🍃

So let’s start by talking a little about the brand first. Erzulie products are all handmade in small batches, are cruelty free🐰 and vegan and are non comedogenic. The brand includes skincare as well as mineral makeup made from all natural, organic ingredients. They are however not USDA certified. The products very reasonably priced and shipping was timely. You can purchase them from their Etsy store Or from their website Erzulie.

Ok let’s move on to the review. I purchased the following products from them:

🍃The hydrating quench booster I bought this thinking it was a tinted moisturizer which it is stated as. However it I found it to be more of a regular face moisturizer since it offered literally no coverage whatsoever 🙁. It is a very good moisturizer though it’s light, non greasy and is made with skin loving ingredients like: Shea oil, Glycerin, almond oil, lecithin and grape seed oil. Would I buy it again as a moisturizer maybe as a tinted moisturizer no😕.

🍃The mineral corrector so I bought this for the sole purpose of covering up my dark under eye circles. While I like the consistency it’s moisturizing and blends easily the color is not as pigmented as I would have liked. It’s more of a peach color then a darker orange/pink which works better with my skin tone. However it is made of all natural ingredients🍃like Shea butter, jojoba oil, squalene . Would I repurchase itI’m thinking maybe…😳  🍃The gel eyeliner Ok so I love eyeliner I feel it defines and enhances your eyes so I have been looking for an organic, all natural liner for a long time. This one while it doesn’t flake or dry out it’s not the richest black. However I do like the ease of application and the fact that it’s made from natural ingredients. Will I be repurchasing Maybe 🤔

So guys that was my review of @Erzuliecosmetics🍃. I hope you found it helpful Let me know in the comments if you have tried this brand and what are your favorite products from them 😘

Until next time 💋xoxo❣️

Casual Sunday OOTD✨

🌞Hola Love bunnies🐰❣️

🌞Today’s post is all about my favorite the OOTD✨. It’s getting hotter🔥 here in Dubai which means outfits have to be loose and comfortable. Even though I love prints being petite means I have to pair them with solids to avoid looking like a walking wallpaper sample. 😋 In terms of wearing black in the 🌞summer I don’t mind it provided I pair it with something colored to breakup the darkness of the look. So here is today’s OOTD, luckily there was a lovely breeze about so it honestly didn’t feel like summer at all 😊

Outfit deets:

Top & Pants : Loft

Shoes: Toms

Accessories: Tiffany , Fabula Jewels

🌞Hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD❣️ Until next time loves 💕❣️

Shopaholic Beauty Solutions: Under Eye Circles 🐼

Hola Love 🐰 Bunnies!

Today I’m going to be discussing a problem and dispelling some myths about a persistent beauty concern that plagues both men and women :”Dark circles” .  

🐼Did you know that each year over $1billion worth of eye care products are bought by consumers? That’s some serious cash 💰 being spent each year to try and correct a problem that doesnt seem to respond any type of skincare product regardless of the claims made.

🐼Over the years I too have played the part of the gullible, willing consumer clamoring for the latest new product to hit the store  shelves :  everything from creams, gels, roller ball serums, homemade masks, iced teaspoons even microneedling 😖ouch! In a series of failed attempts to try and rid myself of these persistent dark shadows that have me fending off questions like : Didn’t you sleep last night? Are you sick? 😒

🐼Finally burnt out from my ⚗️experiments I decided to pay a visit to a couple of dermatologists to try and figure out the mystery behind solving this predicament.

So here is the verdict

🐼Dark circles if hereditary meaning if they are not caused by lack of sleep or a poor diet cannot be removed via topical applications like creams, gels, serums or if you are a DIY queen 👸🏼 via 🍋 lemons, aloe vera gel, vitamin capsules , cucumbers 🥒 or 🥔 potatoes.

🐼Serious dark circles which are sometimes accompanied by hollows under the eyes can only be treated by fillers or laser therapy or a combination of both.

🐼Now here you have a few options ; you can either opt for cosmetic fillers : Juvederm, Restalyne etc and follow that up with a few sessions of laser therapy ( your doctor will decide based on your individual case which laser to use). 

🐼Your second option if you are vary of cosmetic fillers which I totally am btw 😣. Is to opt for PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy which involves injecting the plasma in your own blood in the troublesome areas . Personally if I ever do get over my terror of needles the latter will be the option I will be looking into. The idea of injecting my own blood while squeamish is still a much safer option than cosmetic fillers which come with their own set of complications : bruising, lumpiness to name a few not to mention hideously expensive. 💸

🐼So there you have it peeps a short and hopefully informative insight into the mystery of dark circles and how to go about getting rid of them. Hope this post was helpful to those of you struggling with this problem and will end up keeping you from spending your hard earned💸 money on useless creams and potions. 

🐼Hey if nothing else you can atleast invest in a few good concealers to camouflage those panda rings while you makeup your mind about which treatment to pursue.

If you have any other info about dealing with dark circles I would love to hear it 💕. Leave me a comment below 😘

Until next time loves 💕❣️

🍃Shopaholic reviews : Aztec Secret Indian Beauty Clay🍃

Hola Bunnies 🐰💕

🍃Today on the blog I will be reviewing a product that I found to be highly rated by beauty bloggers and highly reviewed on Amazon : “The Aztec Secret Indian Beauty Clay”.

🍃Consisting of 100% calcium bentonite clay it is supposed to rejuvenate, refresh and beautify your skin. Isn’t that what they all claim 😒. 🍃The clay is to be mixed with either 💦 , apple 🍎 cider vinegar or rose 🌹 water to make a thick paste which you apply leave on for 10-15 ⏲mins or till it dries and wash off. For me the mask got uncomfortably tight as it dried and to be very honest I saw no difference whatsoever in my skin post the application. 😭

👎🏻I have had way better results with my DIY masks then this . Neither did it make any difference to acne prone skin ( I made my sister try it on her breakouts). All in all I give it a big fat thumbs down 👎🏻.

🍃Have you guys tried this product? Which mask would you recommend let me know in the comments down below 😘

Until next time loves 💕
