Eid Weekends! [A Late Post] ♥

Eid Mubarak to all my friends♥♥
Sorry for the late post. I was quite busy celebrating "Eid Festival'' with family. I was out of blogging for almost like a week I guess but I know You saw my post update. I was actually scheduled my review post for the week which helps me get more extra time to spend with family☺♥♥
So, how was your Eid? Well, I was happy that Eid was on Monday this year, because usually my husband has off day on Sunday! So, he was actually willing to help me to get ready for eid. This was the first time we were doing cores for Eid together.He helped me a lot this year. He took all cleaning responsibility and let me do other works nicely♥ Aah! I am so grateful! As I have mentioned on my other post, that I didn't shop/ buy anything this Eid, because my mom sent a full luggage of Eid- clothes and etc for both of us!!♥ I have so many new dresses now!! Unfortunately I only wore one dress on Eid day! I was sad little bit on the day because I couldn't go to mosque with my sister-in law and other relatives because I was on my period!! EEEEeee.. So on the morning i spent my time  putting henna all over my hands and feet☺ You know I love Henna a lot.  You'll always find henna cone in my room. The tube I have bought is weird though! It's not natural henna but it's just kind of chemical mixed color!! It's horrible!! I will never trust any Indian seller again!! I bought this from the store. My sister (law) was busy this month for home repairing stuff. So, she didn't cook many items.There were few guest come to our house this time, I don't know why!! We went some places and got together with Hubby's friends! Oh! and jst let you know that I have no close friends live in here with my area , so every Eid is kinda boring and sad for me- family and friends, this two things I miss a lot during any occasion!! I miss my Eid time with my family and friends in my country a lot! Just talking via phone or skyping is not enough!

Enough chitchat, let me show you some photos below☺
Hope you like it ♥

Long black Salwar-kameez with gold and orange combination.Love the pearl and embroidered designed on the dress I added a golden belt with the dress so that the waist look slim a bit [Hahaha.. fatty problem!]


Here is the terrible Henna fail. I wish someone could do it on my hands. It was quite painful to DIY !! What do you think?


New bed-sheet for Eid. It's a gift from my mother again.


With my hubby & my awkward dumb face.



With my baby Niece! She is super cute ♥


With my sister-in-law, She doesn't like to take photos anymore, but agreed after I forced her this time. Sorry she was unwilling to show her face with you guys!! No problem, you guys understand the situation!♥



With hubby's friend's wife.They are really sweet.Sorry, hiding their faces again.

Obviously, selfie trends is a must ☺
On my lips- Besame Lipstick [Review Here

I didn't take many photos this Eid,sorry! Hope you understand.


Let me know about your Eid celebration and details!!
I was so sad for the last few days of Ramadan, because i couldn't pray or even join fasting for the stupid Period! But at the end of the day, I am grateful for everything Allah give me in my life.That's what we should appreciate first to our God/Allah!

Hope you guys have a great Eid weekend!!

p.s. I am still praying for Gaza! I know I can't do anything except praying for those innocent babies. My support will always be with Palestine.It is unbearable to see those innocent kids dying/ injured/lost family for the terrorist attack by Israel. I hope they stop the war and cooperate with each other. It is not about religious fact. It's about HUMANITY!!

Please pray for those innocent people from Gaza because at least we can do that as a human being!
Be safe!

FoxBrim Hyaluronic Acid Serum For Healthy Skin ♥


I know you must be wondering that I have been using  "Foxbrim" beauty products a lot!! So far I have tried their eye cream [Here] / argan oil [Here] and now I am testing one of their Hyaluronic Acid Serum which is great just as described! ♥
I was really grateful to know about the benefit of  Hyaluronic acid serum for skincare. I think every women, after 20s, must try a good based of Hyaluronic acid serum for the daily skin care routine.You can learn more about Hyaluronic acid Serum on my previous post -Here


Description
There isn't a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum promises a fresher, brighter complexion. It’s never been so easy. Plus, there are NO parabens, NO additives, NO fillers, and it’s NOT tested on animals. Nothing you don’t want and everything you need!
- It’s stocked with a powerful blend of high quality natural ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, MSM, Jojoba Oil AND Green Tea
- It’s safe for aLL skin types
- And it can be worn right under make up


Directions:
Wash and pat skin dry. If you are going to use a toner, apply the toner before the serum. Apply a small amount to entire face, neck and décolleté. Allow to dry. Can be used daily; can be used under make up.

Ingredients:
Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (botanical hyaluronic acid), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Wildcrafted Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Pelargonium Gravolens (Geranium Essential Oil), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin.



My Opinion- 
As you can see, after dropping the serum on my hand, it looks like gel kinda thick serum.After rubbing it on the hand,it looks like water which absorbed on my skin well. It is not so fast absorbing but still it's great for my skin. One drop is enough for my entire face and neck which I really like about it. I think it has rose essence in it- the only scent i can smell in this serum; very soothing and refreshing!♥ I feel like it does brighten up the skin because after applying this serum I have noticed the glow of my face (if you tried it, let me know it does for you or not!!)
I have been using this serum for a week, and my skin already feels healthy and supple.It is just makes your skin so soft, smooth and hydrates so well.It has the youthful formula that prevent aging!
Sometimes, I just only apply the serum and leave my skin bare to see how it feels. Surprisingly it is also moisturized as well without using any cream after neath! 
I use a lots of serum on my skin, like 5 times a day. You know, I have to pray my "Salaat" and for that I have to wash my face five times which makes me apply more serum to prevent dryness. I am sure I'll finish this serum soon! 
The packaging is also cute, I specially love that fox sign- so adorable!! Comes with a dropper which is easy to use. It's a glass bottle which sometimes i fear, I'll break it, lol!! 

Overall, I am loving this amazing Serum from "Foxbrim" and I highly recommend this to anyone. I guess it works for all skin type☺ 

Available- Amazon 

Price- $15.97 (on sale)

Mask Monday || Barefaced DeadSea Mud Mask ☻


Hey guys! Welcome back to my "Mask Monday" post.Today I have another Dead sea mud mask to try and it is from "Barefaced Skincare". This is my first mask from this company which I have never heard about it before! 
When I first saw the container , it reminds me This one !! It might be look similar but the mud mask inside, is totally different that I have tried!! ♥ Read below to know my opinion about this mask!! ↓  

Ooh Yeah! "Just Woke Up" kinda Face here☺

Ingredients
Dead Sea Mud, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Hickory Bark Extract, Non GMO Xanthan Gum, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Water, Kaolin Clay, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Calendula Oil



My Opinion- 
{ Look at my dirty face,oops, before bath}  Well, I usually apply mud mask before my bath because you know, it's messy when you wash off your face! It's a 6 oz jar, a great size, probably will last for more than 6 months I guess! The mud actually feels like gooey and it doesn't contain any harsh scent like the previous one I have tried which I mainly love about it. It's easy to apply on your face.I waited for 15 minutes to completely let it dry and then straightly went to shower. You can either use a warm wet towel or washed without towel, it's up to you. I simply massage my face slowly with a little bit water to loosen up the mask and then I can easily clean my face with towel.To be honest I didn't see any difference after washing off the mask. It just didn't do anything on my face. At least I was expecting an instant result but Sadly there was nothing I feel.And the next day, I got some rashes on my face (wow!on my cheek side, Holy cow!!) which I am so mad about it right now!! This mask didn't suit on my skin rather gave me bloody rash!! [I do not have sensitive skin though!!] 
Overall, I am not so impressed at all because this mask gave me rashes on my skin and there was no good effect about it. I do not recommend it if you have sensitive skin!! 

Sharing is Caring with Hubby♥

GreenEscape Organic Olive Salt Body Scrub

I am  a big fan of body scrub whether it's salt or sugar! Last April, I bought this Scrub from Marshall (Here) and since then I forgot to use it. After cleaning up all my junks, I found this jems and started to use it!!If you search it on their actual website, you see they don't even sell the scrub anymore!!! So weird!!! 
 Scrub is great for exfoliating your skin/body and remove the dead cell/dirt from the body as well as helps to increase the blood circulation of the body. I usually use scrub once a week as I have extreme dry skin.In that case, I mostly prefer oil based scrub which is great for dry / flaky skin. 



Description
Using the pharmacopoeia of yesteryear and the science of today we have created a modern classic.Our exfoliating Body Scrub promotes a naturally clear, smooth and healthy skin.Precious organic olive oil moisturizes. Salt gently polishes the skin clean and antioxidant Vitamin E protects. 


  • Formulated with quality,purity and integrity without compromise. 
  • Naturally active premium ingredients,organic wherever possible. 
  • Only pure plant oil, no mineral oils/aggressive ingredients. 
  • Cruelty free, no animal ingredients/testing ever. 
  • Skin and environment friendly for guilty free legacy. 
  • Supporting and encouraging the responsible recycling for all our packaging. 
  • Made with love and the greats of care 



Ingredients-
 Sodium Chloride, Glycerine Soja (Soybean) oil, Olea Europea oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Silica, Parfum (fragrance), Tocopherol, Caramel,Aqua (water), Benzyl Benzoate, Anisyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate CI 75810 (Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex). 

Size- 17 Oz ( 500G) 

Made In - The Republic of South Africa 

How To Use- For glowing refreshed skin, massage into body using circular movements and then thoroughly rinse.
Use 2/3 times weekly. 



My Opinion- 
I always love body scrub. Olive oil is one of my favorite oil specially for body/ hair / nails. I usually pick up the olive oil body butter.As you can see, the scrub is mixed with oil  which helps for dry skin like mine. I love how it exfoliate well on my skin without any greasiness. Although, it's a oil based scrub but I don't feel any stickiness while using it. I think it's better than "The Body Shop's Scrub" - because no greasiness ,affordable and organic. It leaves my skin really soft and smooth. I mostly use it before shaving my legs (eekk) It will help to soften the skin and ready to shave ! It has very light- scent which I highly prefer in a scrub! 
I don't remember how much i bought it but I am pretty sure it's cheaper than The body shop's srcub and  in a huge Jar!! I wonder if I able to finish it or not (haha,,, just kidding) 
Overall, I am satisfied about my purchase and willing to buy more if I find it in Marshall/ TJMax again! 

Available- Marshall  [Now it's unavailable on their                    website!!]

Let me know if you tried it before? 

Have a nice weekend!

Sample Saturday || Philosophy Moisturizer- Hope In A Jar

Hello everyone & Welcome to another "SampleSaturay" post.
You know, Sephora always have events going on which is amazing to participate.You can learn about new products as well as testing too! I remember last time I have attended their events was back in 2012 and the lady was nice enough to give me tons of free stuff + facial from the events!! Here is post- {Click
So, I was particularly excited to see a huge deluxe sample of "philosophy moisturizer- Hope In A Jar" on my bag, because I was really wanted to buy this.It was great to try first to see if it suit my skin or not☺ 






I thought I would love it but actually I didn't!! It was ok but not as good as I was expected! This is very light facial moisturizer that doesn't do anything on my skin!! I have dry skin , so I must need a good moisturizer that provides moisture and hydrates at the same time. This particular moisturizer didn't moisturized at all.It's just vanished within a second after applied on the skin. It has  a weird plastic kinda smell which reminds me my childhood plastic dolls!!! I think it works for oily/ combination skin. It absorbed on the skin quickly but remain makes my face dry. And it is costly too which is not worth at all!!

Overall, it didn't do anything on my skin , i didn't like it. But if it works for you, let me know☺ 
I won't recommend this moisturizer if you have dry skin like mine or you hate tacky weird smelly products!

Have a nice weekend!

Foodie Friday || With Grazia® Silicone 24 Cup MINI Muffin Pan


Welcome to another "Foodie Friday" post. 
I am actually reviewing one of my mini Muffin Pan briefly from "Grazia" which I have received quite a long ago (Damn I forgot the date!!). 
Anyway, if you love cupcake, then welcome to my club!! I am a huge fan of mini cupcakes because it's easy to bake, yummy and comfort food during Period time (girl's problem!). Today, we have baked "Chocolate mini Cupcake" to try this pan.
As you can see, it's already looked delicious♥






Description- 
Grazia® Silicone 24 Cup MINI Muffin Pan is a non-stick food grade silicone muffin cupcake baking pan that is extremely easy to clean, safe to use in the oven, microwave, dishwasher, or freezer. It is heat resistant for up to 450°F.

--FDA Approved
--High Quality Construction
--Manufactured in Socially Compliant Facility


My Opinion About The Muffin Pan- 
Sorry, I forgot to take photos while baking!! [eee....] This muffin pan is quite impressive.Although, it mention that it's a non-stick pan, I did use the muffin papers for the cupcakes for better shape. May be next time I'll try it without the papers. It is easy to clean and I can keep it anywhere I want. I am thinking to make some Yogurt mini ice cream with using this pan; I guess both works wonderful!! 

Available- Amazon 

Price- $13.89 (24 cup) 


It was so yummy!! It's so soft and perfect sweetness inside. Easy bite for  mini size.♥ 
Hey, that's not enough yet. I also make one of my favorite smoothie which is perfect for Summer heat. 
"Blueberry yougurt smoothie" with lots of ice. YUmmmmm♥ 
You can find both recipes on Pinterest/Youtube.☺






Have a great weekend!

La Beauté Pure Vitamin C Serum

Another amazing Vitamin C Serum that I have recently been introduced by the "La Beauty Pure" company. I love Vitamin C serum for facial skincare. It has so many great benefit like anti-aging, collagen formula and etc. 

Indications
Vitamin C Topical Serum is for those wanting their skin to look radiant and youthful without harsh chemical peels, lasers and facelifts. Pure and natural Vitamin C Serum with hyaluronic acid, amino complex and Vitamin E will deliver a powerful punch to the aging process, reducing fine line and wrinkles on the face. Brightening Vitamin C serum will fade away brown spots and acne scaring leaving the skin brighter and smoother. You deserve the best, you deserve La Beaute Pure Vitamin C Serum for an amazing radiant face.

Ingredients
(98% Naturally Derived /72% Organic) Ingredients for Topical Vitamin C Serum: Water, Organic Aloe Leaf, Vitamin C, MSM, Hyaluronic Acid, Witch Hazel, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Carbomer (thickener), Arginine, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Phenoxyethanol (found naturally in green tea and chicory), Vegetable oil, Gotu Kola Extract, Horsetail Plant Extract, Geranium Extract, Dandelion Extract

Directions
Cleanse face with your favorite cleanser. While face is slightly damp apply a small amount of topical Vitamin C serum and gently glide over entire face, neck, and décolleté areas with fingertips. Avoid direct contact with eyes. Use in the morning for all day protection. Can also be used at night for repairing the skin while you sleep. Enjoy the experience.

Here is the packaging --> Fully protected! ♥





My Opinion- 
It is a 1 0z bottle which I am pretty sure gonna last for 1 and half months for me!! I have previously tried some other vitamin C that actually feels and looks like orange juice which I don't prefer to apply as a serum. This unique formula of the serum is different than others. As you can see, it's crystal clear with no harsh scent on it. Almost feels like water. Dab dab on the face before moisturizer and I am ready to go. 
I do love this serum but I don't like the dropper that comes with the serum! The top of the dropper is kinda round shape which uncomfortable to use because every time i tried to pull the serum, it starts dropping on the surface! But I have more free dropper that I just replaced with this one. Other than that I have no complain about this serum. I love how it feels so refreshing on the skin. 
You should check out their page to learn more about this serum.

Price- $18.99
