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❣️

🍃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 💕

Shopaholic Remedies:  Get Rid of Pimples Super Fast!

Hello Loves! 

🌱Today I’m going to share with you guys my remedy for getting rid of the annoying, unwanted skin peeve we all end up facing :  “pimples” 😖. You know the ones i’m talking about : the red, inflamed, painful sometimes filled with icky 😷white bacteria that appear out of nowhere smack in the middle of your face😱. Right before an important event when you are all set to look like a diva👑. 

🌱We’ve all been there 😖…. I for one feel like the moment I get a pimple on my face everything else about me becomes oblivious and the only thing people around me can focus on is that one abnormal growth on me😖. 

🌱No matter how many tricks or home remedies I tried nothing would work read (toothpaste, tea tree oil, mouthwash, ice even garlic 😷). I would have to simply wait for the monstrosity to grow, take its time and sit on my face making me miserable for days. If I tried popping it or squeezing it I would be left with angry looking scars that would take months to fade. 

🌱So coming to the remedy , about two days ago I was sitting watching useless videos about DIY fails on YouTube. When I felt out of nowhere something painful above my lip. Puzzled I went into the bathroom to take a look in the mirror and to my horror I saw a red, inflamed bump starting to form on the left side of my lips 😱. Now the next day I had to be somewhere important and sporting an angry looking pimple, disguised with concealer was not the way I wanted to be. 😡

Which brings us to the remedy, I tried this the night before and the morning after as well and continued till I felt the bump recede and then vanish✨. I was thrilled honestly this was the first time ever that I had been able to prevent a pimple from forming on my face🎉. So let’s get down to the details ✨the products I used were: 

🌱Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey 🍯 Glyolic Mask,

🌱Alba Botanica Deep Clean Astringent

🌱Beauty Formulas Tea Tree Clarifying Blemish Gel.

🌱Start by applying the glyolic mask, making sure it covers the blemish. 🌱Let dry about 10 mins the mask will sting a bit depending on your skin type. The glyolic mask contains pumpkin enzymes and manuka honey 🍯 that slough off dead skin cells and impurities. Wash off and follow with the astringent toner. 🌱The toner consists of salicylic acid that prevents breakouts. Finally apply the blemish gel with extracts of tea tree and witch hazel helps heal existing pimples and prevents new ones from forming. 🌱So there you have it guys my tried and tested remedy for getting rid of pimples fast⚡️. How do you guys deal with breakouts? Share your remedies/tips with me right here 😘

Until next time xoxo💋.

🍃Shopaholic’s Product Review : Andalou Naturals Visibly Firm Day & Night Cream🍃

🔆Hello Peeps!

It’s summer time 🔆 and since summers equal 🔥heat and humidity💧its the perfect time to switch up my skincare. My skin needs moisture and hydration without the products being too heavy. 

When Andalou contacted me to choose from their line I opted for the Coconut milk day and night cream duo. Like all of Andalou’s products these are 🍃100% vegan, cruelty 🐰free, Non GMO certified and gluten free.   Both the day and night creams come in 1.7oz tubes with an airless pump dispenser. Coconut water is the primary ingredient in both creams along with Aqua Cacteen extract for hydration, vitamin c 🍊 and Green Coffee extract for restoring firmness and suppleness to the skin.  First off I love the sweet coconut fragrance in both creams it’s a very mild scent not at all overwhelming which i cannot bear 😷atleast on my face.  The texture of both creams is very satiny and very light on the skin. If you have severly dry skin I would not recommend using these creams atleast not without a serum beforehand. 

Overall I am very 💕satisfied with these creams they are light yet hydrating and best of all they are all natural 🌿.

I rate these creams 5/5✨! Have you tried any Andalou products? What was your experience ? Let me know in the comments I would love to hear from you 😘.

🌺Shopaholic’s Product Review : Akin Revitalizing Radiance Serum 🌺

🌺Hello ladies ! 

It’s time for another product review post!✨ Today I’ll be reviewing an Australian brand “Akin“🍃. As you probably are aware of my addiction to vegan, cruelty free products🐰, it should come as no surprise to you that all the products from this brand are also certified vegan🍃.

I stumbled upon this brand while browsing through Instagram and I’ve been searching for its products here for a while now. If you are in Dubai you can find them at Holland & Barette stores or you can order them directly from the website “Purist“.

The product I chose to try was their Revitalising Cellular Radiance Serum. This is an oil based serum comprising certified organic  oils of Jojoba and RoseHip as well as botanical extracts and vitamins A &E. 

 The serum comes in a 0.78 oz Amber colored glass bottle with a glass dropper that looks like it came straight from an alchemist’s lab ⚗💕. 

 Tha packaging itself is very pretty, I swear I’m such a sucker for gorgeous packaging 💟 I actually save the boxes that I find too gorg 💕to throw out 😳. 

 The serum itself is a gold colored oil, you are supposed to use only 3-4 drops since it is so concentrated. After cleansing I applied 3 drops of the oil onto my face and neck. It absorbed instantly with no greasy or heavy after feel.  
My only peeve with the oil would be the funky odour, to me it smelled like the cod fish oil 🐟capsules my father would make me eat as a child in the winters ❄️.The smell however dissipates a little in a bit. The serum itself is very hydrating, I was a bit vary since my skin is oily and combination. However it made my skin very soft sans the oil and shine despite it being severly hot and humid🔆.

I followed it with the Sukin Facial Moisturizer (Review coming soon!). Hours later my skin was still moisturized. 

My rating for this moisturizer 4/5 ✨! I can’t wait to try other products from their line 💕. Have you guys tried Akin products? Which one would you recommend?

Shopaholic’s Summer Skin Routine 🔆

img_7470
Hello Loves💖!
With summer just around the corner, I started to put away all my heavy, creamy moisturizers and started stocking up on summer skin essentials 🌞. Where I live summer🔆 equals heat ➕ humidity💧, meaning I need a skin care routine that keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized without being overly greasy.
For me this means switching from a cream based cleanser to one that leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Moisturizers have to be hydrating but not heavy as that leads to insane breakouts 😳. Sun block is a must in any season but esp in summer because I am out and about a lot and my skin needs protection.
I still use body butters simply because the water is very drying and my skin feels itchy and uncomfortable if I don’t moisturize it post showering.
During summer I opt for light fruity and floral fragrances instead of the usual vanilla and amber ones I favor in the colder months.
So here are some of the products that I incorporate during my summer skin care, hope you check them out 💫
🌞Moogoo milk wash 💧this is a coconut based cleanser that leaves the skin feeling clean without stripping it of moisture. Like all Moogoo produts it is free from sulphates and other harmful chemicals. img_7475
🌞Andalou Pearl Exfoliator, whatever the season, exfoliating is a must for my skin. This product has a light rose🌹 and pomegranate scent and gently exfoliates to get rid of dry, dull skin.img_7477
🌞 Andalou Rose Cream, I love the rose🌹 scent of this and it moisturizes my skin without making it greasy. img_7473🌞 Andalou Turmeric+C Serum, this serum is light and absorbs quickly without feeling heavy. It has a mild scent and works to brighten the skin a plus in summer ➕.img_7471
🌞Moogoo SPF 40, a must any time of the year, this SPF is light and provides sun protection with natural ingredients🍃. Will not leave streaks or break you out guaranteed 💫img_7476
🌞Crab Tree and Evelyn Pear and Magnolia🌸 perfume, I love the scent of magnolia and this perfume is light and fruity perfect for summer.img_7472

There you have it loves🌺! My skin care favs for summer! How does your skin care routine change in the summer? Do let me know 🌷!
Until next time xoxo💋!

Shopaholic’s Product Review : Andalou Naturals 🍃

✨Hello lovely peeps!💞

Today I’ll be doing a product review. As most of you are probably aware of my obsession with skincare by now. It should be no surprise to you that this review also revolves around skincare. It’s very rare for (me at least) to find a product that delivers what it promises without a truck load of toxins in close tow. So you can imagine how pleased I was when I happened to come across the Andalou brand of organic skincare products♻️🔆🌎!

The Andalou Naturals 🍃brand is made in the USA and all their produts are made from 🌻🍃Non-GMO, Cruelty-Free🐾, Gluten-Free, Eco-Friendly🌎, Certified Organic, Fair🔆 Trade, Vegetarian, Vegan, and Clinically Proven Ingredients.( Source : http://www.andalou.com)

Here are some of the products that I tried from their line:🌹

🌹Andalou 1000 roses body butter,

image.jpeg

I have recently been dealing with severely dry, itchy, uncomfortable skin, and everything I have tried to date. From coconut oil, Argan oil, lotions, butters ( not Land O lakes 😳). Nothing has provided relief ☹. I was skeptical when I initially tried this but was sold on the rose fragrance 🌹😍. I adore roses, and this butter is delightfully scented ( not the overpowering scent that gives you and everybody around a headache😫😷). It’s a very light fragrance, in addition it’s very creamy not greasy and absorbs into the skin immediately. I found I had to reapply it at the most twice a day as opposed to every hour like I was with all the other produts I was using.

All in all I will definitely be re purchasing this moisturizer. It smells divine, hydrates my skin and is made up of all natural ingredients what’s not to love? 💖

Andalou 1000 roses body wash,🌹

Like the body butter this too has the same dreamy rose scent 😍. It’s hydrating to the skin as opposed to body washes that smell good but strip the skin of all moisture. Plus  I like layering my fragrances 💐. It’s sulphate free and hydrates with argan, rosehip oil, coconut water and Aloe Vera 💧. Plus your shower will smell just like a rose garden 😍🌹.

Andalou creamy cleanser and radiant skin polish,🍋☀️

Lately I’ve been washing my face with my body wash since I had run out of face wash.  And every face wash I used, left my face dry as an old dish rag, post washing and oily and pimple prone hours later. 😡Apparently if you over dry 🍂your skin it compensates by producing more oil to balance it self out .(bye bye clean and clear 👋🏻).

The Andalou cleanser has lemon🍋, Manuka honey 🍯and vitamin c 🍊, it has a creamy lather that washes away impurities. My skin felt clean but not stripped and dry like it did ordinarily.

The radiant skin polish has a texture like creamy sand. It contains chia seeds that buff away dry, flaky skin the result is smoother, softer skin and is that a glow I see? ✨

That’s all for now peeps💞Do try out this brand and let me know how it worked out for you😘

Until next time xoxo💋!
