A Body Shop Vitamin E Skincare Haul

A Body Shop Vitamin E Skincare Haul

The hottest and most dry season of the year has arrived along with the festivities and holidays. The scorching sun is drinking up my skin and there’s so much sales and offers going around where shopping is concerned. Everyones’ shopping, the atmosphere gets to you( definitely got to me :P).

So impromptu I decided to get some essentials I have been eyeing for a while from The Body Shop.

I had been wondering about The Body Shop Vitamin E line for a while now. I’ve always used their skin care line and I’ve tried most of the lines but never really fell in love with any for my dry skin. A few people told me to give the vitamin E ones a try once again. Since all the revamping and look that’s happened to the brand itself I thought why not.

I am currently using their cleansing foam from the ‘Aloe Vera’ line but I feel need more moisturizing. Therefore I picked up the ‘Vitamin E Gentle Face Wash. I am kinda excited for this one. My skin needs some moisture so bad. 

Then I picked up the ‘Vitamin E Hydrating Toner’ too. I’ve never used a toner although everyone time and again advised I should. I always thought it might dry out my skin. However I finally decided to have a go and the ‘hydrating’ in product name definitely helped make the purchase much easier.

Finally when I saw the ‘Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet’ I was happy dancing (in my mind of course! pfft). I’ve been wanting an aqua based moisturizer desperately and this one feels really cooling on the skin.

They also gave me a freebie, this deluxe size ‘Frosted  Cranberry Shower Gel’ with my goodies. I always love getting these tiny ones so you can try out a fragrance for a short while without being bored.

There was a 15% off offer(who’s complaing!? not me! :D)  since I got 3 products so anyone interested living in Sri Lanka can go take a look. 🙂

Do you have any favorite line from The Body Shop? Are you looking to buy any of above mentioned products? Do you already own any of them? Do you like them? Do you think they do a good job moisturizing? Let me know in the comments below! 😀

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Xx

The Time I Went Crazy At Sephora

The Time I Went Crazy At Sephora

So it was my first time shopping at Sephora and this happened…IMG_5946

No seriously, that happened. Like I had a huge cloud blocking the logically thinking part of my brain.

This is the final part of the Dubai Mall Haul Trilogy (Have you read the mac haul and the collective haul? )and the haul I have been very excited to share with you guys but I have to admit that one reason I have been putting it off for a while now is because of how embarrassed I am. I am a bit (ok, A LOT) of a shopaholic but I never just go crazy at stores. I mean I usually tend to be a bit more sorted or so I believe.

But then I went back home with all of these…

IMG_4300…and a broken bank account. *sigh*

I had made up my mind only to pick up products/brands that are not readily available online or the ones that require me to pay too much for shopping. I had a small (um…long) mental list of things I was looking to get which I was happy I could find most of except maybe like 2 products.

The makeup products I picked up were the following.IMG_43031. Too faced Natural Palette – This has to be my most favorite palette till date, so glad I picked it up. This was a total impulsive pick and it worked out pretty great. I am planning to do a review on it soon.

2. Two smashbox primers just because they are soo hard to find online. I also wanted to figure out which one would suit my skin better.

3. Nars Creamy Concealer- It has been talked about too much and I needed to find out for myself if it was all what it’s raved about as.

4.Chanel Vitalumere Aqua – If you guys have been following my posts for a while you would know that this has been my most wanted foundation since the beginning of this year and my shade never is available. surprisingly it was available this time so I got it.

5. I had tried out samples of all four of the UD primer potions and zeroed in on the original one to get a full size of. (check out my review on UD primer potion in Eden ).

6. Nars blush in Tribulation – It is gorgeous multi purpose champagne color that was also an impulse shop.

Skin Care & Beauty AccessoriesIMG_4307

7. Huda Lashes in Naomi – Am I glad I bought these or not! These are just soooooo gorgeous.

8. The Beauty blender pro because you know how much I love my beauty blender. My old one is so dirty and even has a tear.

9. A Sephora Kabuki brush.

10. Glamglow mud mask – I have heard such mixed reviews so I wanted to check it out before getting the full size.

11. Sephora Green Tea Mask which I am yet to use.

12. Sephora fan brush because you never know when you need a light hand.

13& 14. Sephora blending brush and a crease brush because you can never have too many.

15. Beauty blender mini

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in a comment below.

Hope your holidays are going great!

Dubai Mall Haul Trilogy: Kate Spade, Nyx, Lifestyle and more

Dubai Mall Haul Trilogy: Kate Spade, Nyx, Lifestyle and more

Hello Lovelies!! Hope you all had an awesome weekend. If you follow me on Instagram you may probably already know that I was pretty busy dressing myself for my cousins engagement and then I just flew up to my favorite place in the world; Japan. I spent the second half of last week jet lagged and extremely exhausted.

Halloween just passed by and November has already arrived. Time sure does fly.

So finally I have come to lift my lazy bum and do the second part of my Dubai Mall Haul trilogy. Catch the first post where I did a MAC haul HERE.

So here we go….

Kate Spade has always been a store that has screamed ‘ME’ and therefore really fascinated me. I had been looking for a bag I like from them for more than a year now but clearly my picky fussy ways took all this while to find the right handbag.

I think I am officially on a Kate Spade phase in life. I don’t know how long that’d last for but its happening right now and  I am loving it.

Here’s my baby of the season….

Kate Spade Small Phoebe Emerson Place Smooth in the color ‘Spa Blue’ (quite the mouthful…)

IMG_4664

It’s no big news that my favorite colors are blue and hard to find therefore when I set my eyes on these I was in love. Bags come and bags go but the last time I was this much in love was when I had gifted myself the Michael Kors Saffiano Satchel for my university graduation.

Also I picked up a few other cool stuff including these Johnson’s facial wipes. I just got it at the drugstore just to keep with me during all the travelling but it turned out the best thing ever to remove makeup. It does such a fantastic job in comparison to all the expensive makeup removers I have tried. I wish I had picked up a few more of them since I am already down to probably the last wipe.

Then I got this quote canvas from Hallmark for my room that is obviously themed ‘ME’ *just kidding 😉 *, and a bright blue Nyx mascara which I am not so impressed by.

I was looking for a good planner and found the cutest one at Accessorize.

While being on a Kate Spade phase I am also on a Argan Oil and Tea tree kind of phase. I had heard so much about the Ogx hair products so picked up this shampoo and condition to try. I will be reviewing them as soon as I can,

That was all for this haul but watch out for my huge crazy Sephora haul which will conclude this Haul Trilogy.

Let me know what you think of this haul and if you have used any of these products in the comments below.

Have a great week and stay happy! :*

A Mini benefit haul | Testing the Waters

And its time for another haul post. Benefit is another brand that I have been itching to try for the longest time so I decided to go for it. I placed a mini order and I received a few complimentary samples with it that let me have me have a sneak of some of their other products.

The two products at the top of my list was the they’re real! push-up liner and the mascara. I’ve read reviews on these two products that were half positive and half not so positive so I was really not sure if I wanted to risk spending all that money. Read more

My Arabian Shopping Spree!

My Arabian Shopping Spree!

Hi lovelies! Happy Monday! I am back with a haul to share with you guys. I had mentioned in my previous posts that I was gone on a 10 day holiday two weeks ago and these are the amazing things I picked up. This was such a relief from my online hauls especially since I got to try out the products before actually buying them. IMG_1543
