⚜️I am always experimenting with different all natural, sulphate & toxin free shampoos to work with my color treated, split ends prone hair 👩🏻Recently i came across @stoneriversoaps via Etsy and while ordering hand & body soap bars 🧼from them I also added their shampoo and conditioner bar to my order. Yesterday was the first time I used 🚿both and I was pleasantly surprised🥰The shampoo bar had a nice cleansing not stripping lather( I do the squeak test -rubbing my scalp and hair to listen for the squeak squeak sound -to check for cleanliness 😋) and the conditioner bar was easy to use as well. Together they left my hair easy to comb and the following day my hair was soft relatively straight and non frizzy👏 ( I air dry my hair so it takes a full day esp when I’m indoors in ac all the time for it to settle down) I haven’t tried to wash oil out of hair with it yet (that’s the ultimate test for any shampoo with me 💪🏼)But so far I’m very happy with both plus the conditioner bar in particular is a generous size (most natural conditioner bars are super small discs that really don’t last more than 5-6 washes on my hair 💸). Repurchase 👍🏼 Recommend 👍🏼What’s your favorite natural shampoo bar?
Today in super short product reviews let’s talk about clean, all natural eyeliner👁
An absolute must have in every beauty’s makeup Arsenal.
Now if you are a complete shaky klutz like me when it comes drawing a perfect line and you are looking for a clean alternative to the drugstore eyeliner and you all you have in your wallet is a $10 bill 💰Then this episode is for you! Because today I am reviewing a brand that is not only clean and green🍃but that is super light on the wallet and super easy to use so no more panda eyes🐼
And the product I’ve been building up all this suspense about is drumroll please 🥁The Burt’s Bees🐝 Pencil eyeliner.
Ok confession time🤫I cannot use liquid eyeliner 😱I have tried so many times with so many different brands and I just cannot get a non wobbly line or get both my eyes to match 😭so forget a wing or a cats eye🥺
Which is why I finally admitted defeat and started playing around with pencil eyeliners and lo and behold I found that I can draw a semi decent line on both eyes in under an hour 😬
Ok so back to the product the eyeliner costs $9.99! I told you it was under $10.
Like all Burt’s Bees🐝products it’s free from parabens, phthalates, SLS, petrolatum or synthetic fragrances; not tested on animals🐰.
It comes in 3 shades : brown, black and grey. Being the classic girl that I am I chose the black.
It comes in two versions: the pencil which is what I have and the retractable one. I prefer the pencil because I can sharpen it whenever I want a super sharp line.
Ok on to the wearability and ease of application: it’s super easy to apply (if I can do it anyone can😒) it’s lasts all day ( I have super oily lids and even on me it stays fairly well with a tad bit smudging but you can avoid that by prepping your lids with concealer and powder I’m just too lazy to go through all that🙃)
And that’s it folks! I have you enjoyed this review let me know in the comments if you did and don’t forget to like and follow and as always see you next time 😘
Today on super short product reviews i will be talking my two absolute favorite💋 lip colors from my go to makeup brand 100% pure🍃
I have always been a huge fan of bold lip colors and red and bright pink are two of my all time favorite plus they are universally flattering colors so they work with every complexion.
So without further ado let’s get started:
The two colors I bought are the cherry cordial ( a brilliant deep pink) and the red velvet.
Before i rave about the colors let’s go over the formulation: Like all 100% pure🍃products these too are fruit pigmented and all natural. Plus they contain pomegranate oil and coco butter meaning your lips will never be dry or flaky.
These are lip caramels which can best be described as a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Which means you get deep, richly pigmented color with super, glossy shine✨
Plus they are super easy to apply with the help of the wand applicator. I personally find it very difficult to get a clean, line with regular lipsticks esp when they become rounded after a couple of uses.
They are priced at $26 for 5 ml which might seem a bit pricey but they have good sales on and off so you can score some awesome deals.
Ok moving on the colors the red velvet is a gorgeous deep brown red perfect for when you want to get all glammed up.
The cherry cordial is a beautiful, berry pink it’s listed on the website as a berry red but on me it shows up as a deep pink.
The colors do bleed a bit so I would advise using a lip liner and it’s not transfer proof so be careful when you are smooching someone😘.
And that’s a wrap thank you for watching if you like this review don’t forget to like and follow and as always see you next time.
Today I will be reviewing a brand that has replaced every single one of my body and hand creams since I stumbled upon it last year. The amazingly simple yet incredibly effective “booda butter” by @boodaorganics🍃
Let’s get started with all the good and none of the bad since this product has literally no cons 🥳
5 ingredients ! Literally this product only has 🖐🏼5! All natural, certified organic jojoba, coconut & olive oils, fair trade Shea and cocoa butter and that’s it!
Price💰: you get two size options $14 gets you 2.3 oz which is great if you are a single user and if you have a family of users( we are 3) then you should get the generous 8.4oz “tub of love❤️” which will last a good 2-3 months and I personally use it twice a day all over my body.
Texture 💦: it starts off as a soft solid butter then melts into your skin with zero post grease. Plus it has a delicious, very mild chocolate smell 🍫courtesy of the cocoa butter. Which means no 🚫artificial fragrance or colors here!
Uses: this product has multiple uses and it helps with a variety of skin problems including dry, itchy, flaky, rough skin, and even eczema 🤩
And that’s a wrap I hope you enjoyed this video as always like and follow and stay tuned for more super short product reviews coming soon!
🍃Let’s talk concealer👁. As you know I am constantly on the search for a clean, long wearing, non creasing concealer and for a while I was very happy with my Han concealer in the shade medium dark. But after a few months the concealer started feeling heavy on my skin and it was also creasing and settling into the fine lines around my eyes. That meant it was time for a new concealer which is easier said than done because if you are like me and your only option is to shop online for clean cosmetics. Then be prepared for a lot of failed attempts and wasted product and money 💸before you end up with the perfect match. Which brings us to today’s product review the @erinsfaces concealer.
🍃The product is made of only clean, green and vegan ingredients 🍃is buildable and covers beautifully and there is minimal creasing plus it’s very long lasting. Given that I have only worn it during cool weather and it’s true test will come in the grueling, sweaty summers of Dubai when everything melts off your face 🌤🔥. But I will update on the summer wearability later on in the year. In terms of color matching the pictures on the website do not accurately represent the shades. I bought the oak shade based off the color card on the website and it turned out to be too light for me. 🍃The oak in my experience is for people who are light medium in complexion. If you are of Pakistani, Indian complexion then your best and true match will be the cedar which looks orange on the website but is actually a medium dark shade. 🍃In the second picture you can see both shades side by side for a better comparison.

🍃In terms of packaging it comes in a glass bottle so totally ♻️. It retails at $25 for 8 ml which is a fair price. My only peeve is that the shipping is $8 😳which I find too much given that sometimes I only want to buy one product from their site and they never have free shipping ☹️Repurchase : 👍🏼 Recommend: 👍🏼
✨Let’s talk about moisturizers✨From the age of 10 – 16 the only moisturizer or cream (as we called it)we were aware of were the greasy concoctions known as Nivea in the blue aluminum tin or Cream 21 in the bright orange plastic tin. Both of which required the user to dash off to the bathroom afterwards and wipe off their face vigorously with a towel in a desperate attempt to get off the greasy sheen.
A few years later we were introduced to body shop and bath & body works concoctions courtesy of our travels and of some gifts brought by relatives living abroad✈️. Even then my daily routine consisted of slathering on whatever hand or body cream was available on my face and calling it a day. It wasn’t until I moved to the US 🇺🇸that I came upon the Olay Line at Target and i bought my very first Total Effects Lotion that I realized that there was an entire parallel universe of products dedicated for the face that I had never even known existed 😳.
Over the years I stuck with the Olay line of products trying different brands along the way but never really finding any that worked the miracles they claimed to on my skin. ☹️ It was years later when I moved to Dubai and I discovered that my staple Olay had a totally different formulation and after striking out miserably with all other mainstream skincare brands available that I seriously to started researching alternate skincare brands.
That was when I stumbled upon organic🍃, natural skincare brands and my journey of experimenting with the various organic skincare brands began. Over the years I have tried countless products from various brands and honestly there were only a handful that genuinely suited my skin and lived up to their claims. One of such products is the Clarity Face cream from @goodmedicinebeautylab.
This is the first truly matte moisturizer I have ever come across, that does not leave my face greasy. It actually has made my skin better, I rarely breakout anymore not even the pesky before period breakouts ✨my skin is hydrated and the best part is it’s made with only natural ingredients 🍃The cream is available as a 1oz deluxe sample as well so you can try it out before committing to the full size.
