Beauty Haul from Feel Unique

It’s been so long since I did a proper beauty haul from online,  especially from one of my favorite websites- http://www.feelunique.com.

I bought a bunch of stuff which I needed (and some which I just wanted😆) and I can’t wait to share my purchases with you. The best part is I got everything for 20% off.

The Glamoriser detangling dryer brush looks so interesting. This caught my eye because rather than just blow drying my hair, I would also be detangling it simultaneously which definitely makes things easier.

I have heard of this brand before but never used it.  It is made of natural ingredients and I love the smell of coconut. Can’t wait to use this on my special pampering days.

Nuxe reve de miel lip balm is my absolute favorite and I use it every single night. This is a repurchase since my current one is almost over.

If you are following me on Instagram or a regular reader of my blog,  then you would know I am never without my Emma Hardie Moringa cleansing balm. This is a repurchase since my skincare regimen doesn’t exist without this.

I love Real Techniques makeup brushes but I don’t own any from the bold metals collection. This seems like an amazing contouring brush.

This was a spur of the moment last minute purchase as I love anything that is leave-in lately for my hair. Can’t wait to see how this fares when applyed on to my hair.

I used to use Moroccan Oil on my hair and I quite liked it.  This was a good offer for a bigger 125ml size with a free tote bag and of course with the 20% discount.

Have you tried any of the products I bought? Let me know what you think of my latest haul.

My first Korean skincare and makeup haul

I have always heard about how good Korean products are- both skincare and makeup, so I decided to do my research online about what I should buy as there are so many amazing Korean brands out there.

I stumbled upon an amazing website (w2beauty.shopgate.com) that sells thousands of Korean products and ships worldwide.  I literally went crazy at all the makeup and skincare options.  The products arrived in a few days and I also got an insane amount of free samples and some full sized products.

I have tried a few products so far and they are excellent and much cheaper dupes of the other brands we normally purchase. Any particular recommendations of something I should try as well? I would love to know.

Major lookfantastic Haul

I recently discovered a 20% off sitewide on lookfantastic which I had to take advantage of as it stocked most of the skincare brands that I use. I made sure I restocked on most of my skincare and also bought things that I have always wanted to try but were a bit pricey.

Haircare

1- Tangle Angel: I couldn’t resist.  It’s pink,  heart shaped and has angel wings at the back.  It can also stand.

2- Grow Gorgeous hair growth serum: I am just preparing myself for the impending hairfall that I will be suffering with because I just had a baby. Hope this works.

3- Alterna Overnight Hair Rescue: Heard good things about Alterna and this just seems like a good overnight treatment which I do not currently own. image

Skincare

1- Alpha H Liquid Gold: This is my second bottle as my first one will be over soon. I can’t live without this stuff.

2- Ole Henrikson African Red Tea Face Mist: This seemed like a good hydrating toner and it is also clarifying.

3- Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum- I have been looking all over Dubai for this as Caroline Hirons raved about it.  They don’t seem to sell it here so it was a perfect choice to buy it with the 20% off.

4- Oskia Micro Exfoliating Balm: I am a fan of the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and wanted to try something else from the brand.  This was also recommended by Caroline Hirons.

5- Zelens Resurfacing Facial Pads: This is a repurchase and I can’t live without this stuff. Mine just ran out yesterday and thank goodness I have received this today.  My nighttime skincare routine is incomplete without this.

6- Zelens Z Matrix- I am a huge fan of Zelens skincare and my sister loves this particular moisturiser due to its hydrating properties so I thought I should take advantage of the sale and get this as Zelens is so expensive. image

Bodycare

1- Ole Henrikson Lavender Body Oil: this sounded like something my body needs especially after giving birth.  Can’t wait to try it. image

I also received the lookfantastic Beauty Box for free as I spent a certain amount.  Haven’t opened it yet though. Anyone else made use of the discount?

Sneak Peak- my 2 most practical handbags

Hi friends,

I just gave birth to my second baby boy 3 weeks ago and I am so excited to finally start losing all the weight I have gained as well as get back into the groove in terms of fashion and beauty.

I recently made 2 sneaky handbag purchases just because I thought I deserved a treat after all that I went through with this pregnancy:)

I bought a black 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli (from Bloomingdales Dubai) which I have always admired. Finally thought I should buy it as it would be a perfect work bag as well. I also stumbled upon a Sophie Hulme mini zip top bowling bag which was half off in Boutique 1 and I thought why not. It was such a steal. I am a recent fan of Sohpie Hulme bags and I am contemplating buying the red bucket bag as well.

If any of you are looking to buy a practical black handbag that has enough room to put in everything and is excellent in terms of quality and style, then these are definitely it. Prices are reasonable compared to other higher end brands and they are super stylish as well.

Anyone else a fan of these bags?

Big love for Nyx- a little haul!

Nyx has always been one of my favourite drugstore brands for lipglosses. They are just amazing and have tons of colours to choose from.

I just went a little Nyx crazy yesterday especially when I spotted the butter lipsticks. Just feast your eyes on the gorgeous colours. Can’t wait to wear them.

These are so smooth and feel so 'buttery' on the lips.

Gorgeous colors. The butter gloss is slightly sheer compared to the lip creams which are extremely pigmented.

This creates a perfect thin eyeliner which stays put and does not crack or smudge.

Perfect for the waterline and it does not smudge even after wearing for many hours.

A visit to Space NK- A beauty haven

Space NK in London was my favorite place to be. I could be there for hours (I had my poor husband patiently waiting for me to finish for about an hour).

I came back with a suitcase full of skincare, most of which are recommendations from my favorite skincare guru Caroline Hirons. I know I won’t be using all these products at once but I will go through them eventually:)

Below is a list of all the skincare purchases I made and I can’t wait to try each of them. Have you tried any of the products I bought?

Major Sleek Haul

Hi again. Another brand of makeup that we do not have in Dubai is Sleek. Everyone raves about their blushes and eye shadows and about their excellent pigmentation and of course how affordable the brand is.

So off I went to Superdrug and bought a bunch of Sleek makeup. Please let me know what your favourite Sleek product is.
