🍃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 DIY : Rose 🌹 scented face and body cream 🌹

Hello Loves!

Welcome to another DIY post 😘. Since I had so much fun making my own DIY lip balm I decided to give face and body creams a try ✨ Making your own creams and butters can appear a bit daunting at first but if you use a few pure, ingredients it really is very simple. Just remember this one ☝️ cardinal rule : ‼️Anytime you add water, extracts, gels or tinctures to an oil/butter mix you will need to add preservatives‼️

Meaning as long as your cream/butter mixture contains oils, essential oils and butters you can use them without refrigeration or the need for any preservatives. However since water 💦 creates an environment for mold and bacteria you will need a preservative or your cream/lotion/butter will develop mold and go rancid even if you refrigerate it.  Also please note that vitamin E 🚫oil is not a preservative and will not prevent mold from forming you will need a chemical preservative.

Ok now that we have all the ominous⚠️ stuff out of the way let’s get started with our DIY✨

You will need :

🌱3/4 cup Shea butter
🌱3/4 cup cocoa butter 

(Make sure you use the raw , unrefined version, you can easily find these and all the other ingredients used in this recipe at Amazon or your local organic store).

🌱1/2 tsp 🐝beeswax pastilles or 2 tsp arrow root powder. 

( Beeswax binds the oils and butters together, while arrowroot gives the cream a slightly matte feel which I find perfect for the summer when you don’t want a greasy after feel from your cream especially if you are planning to use it on your face. If using the arrowroot omit the beeswax if you use both you will end up with a somewhat firmer texture to your cream. If you want a lighter texture just use the arrowroot powder).

🌱1 tbsp each of avocado 🥑 oil , jojoba oil  and almond oil.

🌱1 tsp of Rose hip seed oil 

🌱1/2 tsp of neem oil ( Neem oil is a great anti inflammatory oil and helps prevent breakouts. However it has a very strong, bordering on stinky odour so if you find you cannot😷 stand the smell use tea tree oil instead).

🌱30-40 drops of your favorite essential oil for fragrance (I chose Rose 🌹 Geranium oil).

🌱Start by sterilizing your equipment, I wiped down my utensils with alcohol 🍺 swabs and air dried them. 

🌱Next heat up your shea and cocoa butter along with the beeswax ( if you are adding it) in a heat proof container placed over a pan of simmering water. 🌱Stir together until the butters are melted through. 

🌱Cover with plastic wrap and place container in the freezer for 10 ⏱mins to cool down and thicken slightly. 🌱This is what your mixture will look like after about 10 mins slightly thick but not frozen. At this point add in the oils, the arrowroot powder (if using) and start whisking with your electric mixer you can also use a stand mixer if you have one and make your task less labour intensive 😘.

🌱After about 10 mins your mixture will start to resemble a thick whipped cream 😱😍. 🌱Add in your essential oil and continue to whip or mix until the cream thickens and sticks to the whisks. 🌱And voila✨ your homemade cream is ready!🎉 All that’s left now is to transfer it your storage container and it’s ready to use 😍. Make sure you sterilize and dry your storage containers ‼️remember water breeds mold ‼️. The cream will keep easily for several months at 25 🌡degrees C (that’s the temperature indoors here) if it’s hot where you live keep it in the refrigerator ❄️. 🌱This cream is buttery soft, melts on contact with your skin and is non greasy thanks to the arrowroot powder. The geranium oil adds a lovely floral scent 💐. It’s very concentrated so a little will go a long way. Plus the best part is it is all natural and contains zero chemicals✨.

🌱Do try this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you 😘

Until next time loves xoxo💋!

Let’s get started already!

💋1- I don’t wear makeup unless it’s a special occasion. Everyday I’m barefaced and yes that includes most OOTD posts unless I specifically state I’m wearing makeup. Even then it’s limited to tinted moisturizer, lipstick, kohl and blush.

💋2-I love acting would love to make a career out of it someday lol wishful thinking 😋.

💋3- I love buying clothes I mean if I could wear a new outfit everyday that would be the perfect world 🌎 for me 😇

💋4- I hate working out 🏋🏻 but I do it anyway because my body attracts fat like a magnet 😳.

💋5- I wish I had the power to travel back in time and redo some of the things that I messed up 😔.

💋6-I have always wanted to do a cartwheel and a handstand.

💋7- I wish junk food and desserts weren’t fattening. 😋

💋8- I have always dreamed of waking up looking perfectly made up like in the 🎥 movies or in Instagram selfies 💋.Usually when I wake up I look like I’ve been wrestling wild cats all night😾😺.

💋14- I used to love reading 📖 but I haven’t been enthralled by a book since Harry Potter 😢. (Any recommendations?)

💋15I am so sick and tired of people going on racist rants and spreading hate and violence just because they think they are entitled on the basis of their skin color which FYI is determined by your genes and not something that makes you superior or that you can change. ( Unless you happen to be Michael Jackson 😎).

So there it is guys a little bit more about myself. Hope you guys enjoyed reading do let me know in the comments 😘.

Until next time xoxo 💋.

😈Shopaholic Product Review : Lush Dark Angels😈

🍃Hello Everyone❗️

🍃Long time no see ✨❣ I just got back from a long vacation last week and I am still in transition from holiday to back to routine mode😩 which is why I was absent from blogging for so long✍🏼.

🍃So I figured what better way to get the regular routine officially started then with a produt review ✨

🍃I used this product throughout my vacation since I had run out of my previous 🍃Lush Herbalism cleanser

🍃Presenting the Lush Dark Angels face wash✨

🍃The Dark Angels face wash is very appropriately named because it is totally that🌑. I was initially a bit nervous putting it on my face but the promise of clearer, fresher skin made me get over it 😁. Are you guys ready for this❓Here goes ✨ 

🍃The product has a moist somewhat crumbly texture and is comprised of powdered charcoal, rhassoul clay, black sugar,avocado and rosewood oil. You just add some water to make a paste and off you go❗️Fair warning the pics you will see below might be a tad bit alarming so proceed with caution‼️

🍃Yes I admit i did have a lot of fun using this once I got over the initial shock of seeing my face so startlingly black 😱.

🍃The face wash is satisfyingly exfoliating I personally don’t like creamy cleansers or soft exfoliators. I don’t feel my skin is clean enough unless I give it a good scrub. This cleanser is perfect if you have super oily or acne prone skin, if you have dry or sensitive skin it might be too much for you. 

🍃The only peeve I have is its too messy too use so I wouldn’t recommend wearing lighter colors when using this. Also it tends to leave behind residue so you have to wash your face throughly or use a gel cleanser after it you might end up with black streaks on your face .

🍃I give this product a 4/5✨ have you tried this cleanser❓let me know what your favorite Lush products are 😘

🌹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 : Burts Bees Lipstick 💋

Hello peeps!💞

Time for another product review😍 I have been actively searching for natural, organic beauty products lately and I was thrilled when Burts Bees finally came out with their lipsticks❗️

I have been using and loving their lip crayons and tinted balms for the longest time. So when I came upon these I snapped them up immediately.

These are full coverage, highly moisturizing lipsticks with a satiny finish that come in a range of 14 gorgeous shades. Made with 100% natural ingredients🍃 morninga and raspberry oils and vitamin e to condition your lips.

They come in a plastic tube with a bee hive pattern along the sides 😍!The lipsticks themselves are easy to apply with vibrant colors, however they are not long lasting I would say a 2-3 hours at the most without eating or drinking. 


I chose the shades, Ruby Ripple, a gorgeous red, and Sunset Cruise, a lovely coral 💋.


My rating 4/5 ✨Do try these lipsticks out if you can they are available at Target, Burts Bees.com and Holland and Barette stores. What are some of your favorite Burts Bees products?

🍃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💋❗️
