The Natural World Of Beesline

A while ago I received a gift basket from Beesline. It is a Lebanese cosmetic brand that prides itself in its natural ingredients mainly apitherapy, which is the use of honey bee products. I am a huge fan of natural products and tend to search for them when I am at a department store or a para-pharmacy as I have sensitive skin, especially my face.

Inside the bag was a pair of anti odor socks, lip balm, sea salt foot scrub, anti shine facial mask, and beeswax ointment.

The facial mask was thick in texture that is easy to rub with a pleasant scent. read more

Cold Weather Shower Tip

In the cold weather we are all tempted to soak in a long hot bath or shower, but that is not a good idea for many reasons among which are the following:

First, the heat breaks down the skin lipid barriers which help the skin stay moisturized, making it dry and flaky.

Second, it causes the hair to be brittle, weak and easy to break.

Third, pores will open up and the skin will easily attract dirt to enter and causes acne.

The best solution is a lukewarm bath or shower. Its harder said than done, and I am reluctant to do so, but for beauty benefits lets do it! read more

Pamper Your Feet

As summer approaches, so does the hot weather, implying sandal season. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for a woman’s feet to be properly cared for. I see cracked soles and dry toes so many times, its unattractive and gives off a vibe of someone who isn’t too keen on hygiene.

I am a freak when it comes to being properly groomed, and I am going to share with you my foot care ritual. I do this all year long and not just in summer, and I recommend you do the same for soft feet. read more

Product Review: Chanel Hydra Beauty

Who among us doesn’t love Chanel? When I got the chance to sample their skincare line, I couldn’t say no. A big thank you to the ladies at the Chanel counter at the department store, this is my review for their ‘Hydra Beauty’ range.

It has been over a month that I have started using this line. I had been using a BB cream for a short while before, so I got used to the daily coverage. The first day or two without my BB cream was awkward, I felt naked.

The daily procedure is as follows: Mornings I put the serum followed by the cream on my face avoiding the eyes, at night I apply the serum (the cream is optional at night). My skin is normal to dry, and a tad sensitive, so I used the cream for dry skin. Both the serum and cream smell heavenly, Chanel should consider bottling them as perfume! You only need a small amount and it spreads a lot, I am still on one of the tubes. My face stayed hydrated throughout the day, and even after a warm bath when my skin usually dries out, the serum would help regain its moisture. read more

Custom Bubble Bath

Do you ever get the feeling of being drained with a hint of a headache after a long week of work? Well I was there last Friday night and I scanned my room for items I could put together for what I figured would be a solution. Yep, I’m talking about a bubble bath. Since I don’t have any special product for this, I decided to scramble various types of body washes, kind of like mixing ingredients for a recipe.

I started running hot water and squeezing a bit of each of the items until the bath was full. I used the following products: read more
