🍓Shopaholic Quick Review:Han Cosmetics Powder Blush 🍓

🍓Hello Ladies ❣

🍓Welcome to a quickie product review✨

🍓I recently picked up the Hans Cosmetics Powder Blush since I had previously tried and really liked their eyeshadow single in taupe. 

🍓Since I suck at makeup, and the eyeshadow was something I could simply swipe on my eyelid and still look pretty darn awesome 😱 I decided to get their blush as well since blush is one of my everyday get ready staples.


🍓Hans blushes are made of rice powder instead of talc, and are vegan and cruelty free  🍃.

🍓The shade I chose is called Strawberry Pink. It comes in the signature Hans packaging a sleek round pot, you get about 4 grams of product for $15💰. Since you only use a little at a time, unless you are planning to rock the clown cheeks look, it will last quiet a while. 😁

🍓The color is quiet intense and you really need a swipe on the pad otherwise you will end up with startlingly pink cheeks and a lot of blending.While I’m not blown away by the color it is a nice addition to my blush collection which as of now stands at a measly two 😝. 
🍓Will I buy this again, I probably will but in a different color for sure I don’t think this particular shade is me.
🍓Have you guys tried Hans cosmetics? Which shade do you recommend?

Until next time loves xoxo💋❗️

💋Shopaholic Product Review : Dusty Girls Natural Lipstick 💋

Hello Lovelies❣

💋Up for review today is a product I was on the fence about for quiet a while. Usually a product is an instant hit or miss with me I really don’t deliberate too long. However this product was from a brand I usually adore and I was very excited to receive it. I mean an all natural lipstick is definately something to look forward to isn’t it 😉. Presenting the Dusty Girls Natural Lipstick💋


💋The lipstick contains Shea Butter, Jojoba oil and Vitamin E to condition your lips and contains no lead, parabens or synthetic dyes found in commercial cosmetics. It comes in a lovely cardboard tube with a plastic inner sleeve.

💋The color I chose was the Chia Seeds, which according to the description is a rich shade of burgundy with red and brown hues. Now if you know me you know all about my love 💞affair with bold lip colors.💋

💋So you can imagine my disappointment when I after oohing and aahing over the packaging I opened the lipstick to find a pink shade💄 inside.

💋I immediately checked the bottom label thinking I had ordered the wrong color or they had mixed up my order or I had temporarily gone color blind . But the label cheerfully proclaimed itself to be the very Chia Seed shade that I had requested. 

💋I contacted Dusty Girls who were kind enough to send me a replacement but as it turned out it was the same pinkish shade. 😞 According to them the shade is supposed to be pink❓I wonder why they list as burgundy with red and brown undertones🤔.

💋The lipstick itself is very hydrating though it’s a semi matte finish and I love not having to put lipbalm before or after.  

💋If you are someone who loves nude pink shades then this will definately work for you. However I won’t be re-purchasing this unless they come out with bolder shades. 

💋I rate this product 3/5✨ simply because of the lack of the color intensity. Have you guys tried Dusty Girls products❓Let me know right here😘

Until next time xoxo💋❣

🌹Shopaholic’s Product Review : Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner 🌹

Hello lovelies!🌹

🌹Hope you are all having a wonderful sunmer🔆! It’s been crazy busy for me with my semester ending and deadlines approaching which hopefully explains my absence from blogging 🔍.

🌹As you’ve probably gleaned from my previous posts summer here is uncomfortably hot and humid 🔥. Which makes it the perfect time to be reviewing this particular product. 

🌹I am an avid moisture buff, I need my moisturizers year round, although I have to say in 90% humidity it does get a little tricky to incorporate a body moisturizer into the routine. That was when Lush came to the rescue🆘

🌹I was in the Oxford street Lush store , 3 glorious floors of everything Lush❣When I came upon this delicious product🌹 The Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner🌹

🌹I have to be honest, as much as I love Lush, I am disappointed that their products don’t have striking fragrances.

🌹Which is precisely why I want to start off first by gushing about the fragrance❗️It is divine❣Like fresh roses and Rose and berry jam🌹😍😋! Everytime I have used this product I have had someone ask me what smells so delicious?❣


🌹Ok now that I’ve raved about the fragrance lets get on with the rest of the details. This is not a typical moisturizer  that you slather on after your shower. It’s a rinse off moisturizer meant to be applied in the shower post your soap or body wash and then rinsed off. 💦 I know it sounds a bit strange, I myself had to be repeatedly assured by the Lush rep that it was meant to be applied then rinsed off. Think off it like conditioner for your body instead of your hair hence the name ✨.

🌹Being the incredible skeptic I am, I applied it hesitantly post my shower then rinsed it off feeling a bit strange. I am used to the squeaky clean feeling, with this though my skin felt just slightly greasy. However once I toweled off my skin felt soft, moisturized and delightfully scented I couldn’t stop sniffing myself 😍☺️.

🌹On the ingredient side it contains generous helpings of Argan, Almond, Rose oil as well as vanilla and Shea butter✨.

🌹I rate this product a 5/5❣Have you guys tried this product? Let me know your experience I would love to know 😘

Let’s talk❣

🍃Shopaholic’s Product Review : Lush Love Lettuce Mask🍃

Hello Loves!💕

Today’s product review is one that was totally unplanned. In fact I wasn’t even aware I had this particular product with me until I popped open my refrigerator ❄️.

So yesterday was a typical, scorching 🔥Dubai summer☀️ day with temperatures hitting 120 🌡degrees. When I finally came back in the house after running some unexpected errands I literally felt like my face was on fire 🔥.

Desperate to cool off I opened the referigerator and stuck my face in and that was when I caught sight of a familiar black pot siting in the corner of the door shelf. 

It was the Lush Love Lettuce Mask. I probably forgot all about it since it was a referigerated mask that I chucked in the fridge once I got home. The Love Lettuce Mask, is an exfoliating mask for oily and/or combination skin made with ground almonds, lavender and almond oil and fillers earth. 

The mask has a mild, lavender scent and a gritty texture. According  to the package you are supposed to leave it on for 10 mins then dampen your fingers and gently remove.
Before applying my skin was irritated from the heat, and greasy in the T- zone. Post washing my skin felt soft and literally refreshed. I followed with the Lush Vanishing Cream for a complete spa facial effect right at home 😍.I give this mask a 5/5 ✨. It calmed down my irritated skin, swept away all the oil and debris on my face and left my face soft, moisturized and can I say glowing?✨

All in all one of my favorite purchases from Lush💕. Which is your favorite Lush mask? I would love to know your recommendations 😇
Until next time xoxo💋❗️

🚫Shopaholic’s Review :  Products That Didn’t Live Up To The Hype🚫

💕Hi Guys!

🚫Today I’m going to be talking about a product that missed the mark totally 🎯. Yup❗️not every product can be a winner sadly and this is just one of those duds 👎🏼.

🚫I had very high hopes for this product as it is from a brand that has met and/or exceeded my expectations everytime. So you can imagine I was very excited to be trying it out, especially since it came highly recommended and reviewed. 

🚫The Lush American Cream Conditioner✨ 

Lately my hair has been feeling very 🍂dry and getting unusually frizzy 🐩owing to the ever mounting heat 🔅and humidity💧 and since I am stuck on using only organic products my options are severely limited.

🚫This particular conditioner was recommended to me by the sales associate at Lush as well as having people raving about it online. When I used it however I could tell immediately by the texture that it was not moisturizing at all. The texture though thick coming out of the bottle didn’t feel creamy on my hair at all despite that fact that I applied it liberally and even left it on for more than my usual five min mark. On a positive note it did smell yummy like vanilla cake 🍰, however since I wasn’t going to eat it that didn’t really matter 👎🏼

🚫When I washed it out my hair felt just the way it did post shampooing i.e dry it didn’t feel like I had conditioned it all😐.

🚫Combing my hair was as difficult as I had feared post washing, it was tangled, knotted and eventually I had to use my Phyto leave in conditioner to attempt get the comb down the entire length of my hair. 😡

🚫Once dry my hair felt awfully dry and crunchy and frizzy 🍂💥. I had to apply some argan oil to the ends to try and smooth it out it was so bad😡. When I checked the ingredients I found Sodium Laureth Sulphate and Cetearal alcohol,Benzyl Alcohol and Benzoin Resinoid and Chloride 😱🚫Since I have been using sulphate free products in a while obviously my hair and body aren’t used to them anymore and what are they doing in Lush Products anyway

🚫Needless to say I was incredibly annoyed, not only did I have to go to the salon and have them use a deep conditioning treatment on my hair to combat the awful frizz I’m returning this crappy product ASAP❗️ I just hope the Lush store here honors their return policy 😡😡
🚫This is one product from Lush that has been a sore disappointment 🚫❌. Have you tried any Lush products that were bombs? 💣 Let me know 😘

Until next time xoxo❗️💋

🍃Shopaholic’s Product Review : Lush Herbalism Cleanser 🍃

🍃Hey Everyone❗️

🍃Welcome to another fabulous product review✨ I know I’ve not been very active on the blog lately, but I’ve been bogged down by assignments ➕ I am fasting , so I am literally sapped of all energy 💧during the day.

🍃Anyway since I finished my assignment a week ahead of the deadline for once 🎉. I made a beeline for the mall the very next day 😍🛍. I had run out of my cleanser, moisturizer and body wash so I was really looking forward to some much needed retail therapy.💸

🍃Since it was the middle of the week in Ramadan🌙 no less, the mall was deserted 😍❗️So for once I was able to go into the Lush store and look around in peace ☮. Usually the store is packed 😡 and the assistants are harried and you have to wait forever to get a turn at the basins 💧to try out something.

🍃Today, I was assisted by one of their lovely employees who let me try out the different products to my hearts 💕content and I came away clutching my haul happily.  

🍃The product i’m going to review, is the 🍃Lush Herbalism Cleanser. Lately my skin has been going into oil production overdrive and using conventional acne cleansers including my beloved Alba Botanica were not helping matters 😡. Plus my regular moisturizer was leaving my skin looking like fly paper so I figured it was time for a change.

The 🍃Herbalism cleanser is unlike any I’ve tried before. It is a bright green, crumbly, damp powder which is tightly packed in the standard black Lush pot. 

🍃Key ingredients : Kaolin clay, rice bran and ground almonds . 🍃You take a small pinch of the cleanser, wet💦 your fingers and rub in into your palm. When it comes in contact with water it becomes like a paste which you can then rub over your face. It doesn’t have any discernible fragrance just a very mild herby scent.🍃 It does not foam or produce any suds, instead it had a mild scrub like texture. Weird I know, I am so accustomed to suds that I was very skeptical about the product actually cleaning my face. 

🍃However once I dried my face I was pleasantly surprised to find that my face was not only clean it was sans that dryness and tightness that I get post  washing that immediately makes me reach for my moisturizer. 

🍃My skin felt soft and clean, though I did follow it up with the Lush Vanishing Cream ( Review coming soon!). I really can’t be without moisturizer.😳 Fast forward 8 hours later my skin is moisturized and soft but not oily✨ No shiny, spot a mile away T zone❗️

🍃All in all so far I’m really liking this cleanser, I admit the oil control factor has to do with using in conjunction with the Vanishing cream. Even so I give it 4/5

🍃Have you guys tried the Herbalism cleanser? What are your favorite products from Lush?

Until next time xoxo💋❗️

🌸Shopaholic’s Summer in  Pastels OOTD🌸

🌸Here’s the finished look 😘
