Review : November 2015 Glambox!

Hiya guys!

Though late, here are my thoughts on November’s Glambox. First of all, this time, the box came with an outer covering that has a floral print on it. It is so feminine and gorgeous ♡. Next thing I love the most is that except for a perfume sample, this box is all about skincare and you guys know how much am crazed about skincare products!

Glambox

Glambox

1) Bioderma Hydrabio serum – I was beyond happy when I saw a full sized Bioderma product in the box, that too a serum, one of my most favorite skincare products. This serum is for ‘very dehydrated, sensitive’ skin. It’s very light weight and gets absorbed into the skin easily. A little goes a long way. It is aptly named as Hydrabio. It is intensely hydrating and leaves your skin looking plump and soft. I use it during day & night just before my moisturizer. It comes in a tall bottle with a convenient to use pump. The packaging is in such a way that you get a sneak peek of the brightly colored blue lid. It’s so pretty. It contains 40ml and is worth AED 210!

2) Oils of Life from The Body Shop – This is an intensely revitalizing facial oil. It is light weight, non greasy and has a lovely scent to it. I apply it every day just after serum, at night. It came in a tiny bottle with a dropper. Each time I just use 5 drops and as such I am still not done with this 7 ml sample!. The bottle is designed so well that once this oil gets over, am just gonna refill the bottle with one of my favorite skincare oils like an Argan oil and pop it in my travel skincare bag.

3) Dadi’ Oil – This is a nail treatment / skincare oil. It is 95% certified organic & contains high purity avocado oil, jojoba oil, extra virgin olive oil, natural vitamin E & 21 naturally derived essential oils that give this oil a fantastic scent. This is the first time that am owning a nail treatment oil. It’s color looks just like olive oil. I use it every night. Since it comes in a little bottle that looks like a nail polish’s bottle, application is really easy. I then massage it into my cuticles. Recently, after using a really strong nail polish remover, couple of my nails started flaking. This has never happened before and I really freaked out. But this oil healed it in just 2 days!. I highly recommend this product. It came in a tiny bottle containing 3.75ml.

4) Perfume samples from Rasasi – I love how these samples are packaged. Boruzz is Rasasi’s latest Oudh collection. These are just so stunning!. I love both samples. Jazeebiyat Musk Tabriz is a stronger scent, clearly a masculine one. Lamaat Musk Tabriz is a softer oud scent, a feminine choice. Oud scent lovers will definitely need to check out this collection by Rasasi because it captures the oud scent so beautifully. Each of these samples came in a little spray bottle containing 1 ml.

5) Bioderma samples – Oh how I love skincare samples even if they come in tiny tubes. It’s perfect to trial out a product before deciding to invest in it’s full size.

Bioderma samples

● Hydrabio Creme – What a fantastic cream that can be used both at daytime or night. It’s rich, hydrating and makes your skin feel so soft and perfectly textured. Not even kidding when I say it’s almost like a primer. It simply smoothens out your skin, giving it a perfect look. Definitely a product worth buying in full size. The sample came in a tube containing 5 ml.

● Hydrabio Serum – Same as the full sized bottle that came in this box. I first used up this sample and then started on the bottle. The sample came in a tube containing 5 ml.

● Hydrabio Perfecteur – This is a day cream with SPF 30. It’s rose colored and is a radiance booster. It’s a lovely cream that gets easily absorbed. The sample came in a tube containing 5ml.

Overall, am loving the Hydrabio range of products. All of them are so intensely moisturizing and hydrating ♡

Review : Angel Schlesser Femme perfume!

Hey guys!

I am delighted to review Angel Schlesser’s Femme Eau de Parfum. The packaging is extremely simple. White and gold, a classic combination, is what makes this packaging so special. The rectangular box has two plain, gleaming gold bands, a narrow band at the top of the bottle and a thicker band with white lettering at the base. A gold rectangle in the middle of the box, bears the designer’s name and the word FEMME in white.

The bottle is slender and tall. It is a matte white which again is so simple. The base bears the designer’s name in gold lettering and the words Eau de Parfum.

Top notes : Bergamot and Mandarin, which contrast with the spicy warmth of Pepper.

Middle notes : Floral with Jasmine petals, Violets and Ginger.

Base notes : Tonka beans, Musk and Amber.

I love this perfume because it is sensual, seductive and fresh. The scent lasts for a long time and is that kind of scent that makes you exude confidence and attract attention. I highly recommend this perfume to confident women out there who has a love for oriental/vanilla scents.

Price : AED 280 for 100 ml and AED 198 for 50 ml.

It’s bottle is a heavy translucent cube, designed stunningly with an electric green body and a dark grey cap. I adore the masculine design of it.

The middle note is peppery and sensual, with interplay between green Geranium and quiet Cedarwood. Finally, the base dries down into an intense cocoon that lingers on the skin, with deep Black Vanilla, powdery Tonka Bean, and earthy Patchouli.

Review: Armand Basi in Red Eau de Toilette!

Hey guys!

Today I am reviewing a women’s perfume, Armand Basi in Red. Let’s start with the packaging. It come in a simple white pack with a minimalist yet alluring grey motif on it which represents tree branches, that has little red flowers ready to blossom on it. It’s the simplicity of the design that make it so attractive!. The red against the grey branches gives it more emphasis.

Armand01

The bottle is a gorgeous transparent, rectangle bottle with the same tree motif drawn onto the glass. The perfume is clear too. The tube that leads the perfume to the spray nozzle is so transparent that you need to look for it, inorder to see it. Otherwise, it blends so well with the liquid inside. It is so clever!. This brand has absolutely captured the essence of the saying ‘Less is more’. The bottle couldn’t be any simpler and yet it is designed so artistically!

Armand02

The scent of the perfume is strong and beautiful. The first thing you notice about it is a citrusy scent mixed with a floral note of jasmine. It has a slightly spicy note too though you can’t really place what it is at first. It lingers on for a long time. I definitely love this scent. It’s sensual and very attractive.

More info from the brand: The top notes are citrusy mandarin and bergamot, supporting an exotic, spicy note of cardamom and ginger. They symbolize positivity and radiance on an emotional level. The floral middle notes express femininity and joy: a garden of intense aroma, based on rose and jasmine, with the feminine touch of lily of the valley and the deep green of violet leaves. The base notes hold the fragrance’s woody warmth, composed of the most sensual notes of wood and musk, a complexity set against the delicate freshness of moss.

The bottle contains 100 ml and costs AED 250.

Review : Mandarina Duck Men’s perfume, M+!

Hello!

Today I am reviewing Mandarina Duck’s new fragrance for men, M+. It came in a grey box with two bottles in it. One is a standard sized bottle (100 ml) and the other is a travel version (30ml). This new duo fragrance concept is designed for that dynamic, goal-oriented man who can keep the bigger version at home but always carry the smaller version with him while on the move!. The box shows M+ on one side, the plus being an eye catching yellow. On the other side, it shows the picture of both the bottles indicating that one is a travel version and the other to be kept at home.

IMG_1426

The bottle is a simple one, with a minimalist design. It’s transparent in color, revealing the grey colored perfume inside. The cap is matte aluminum. The well placed striation on the bottle helps you get a proper grip while holding the otherwise smooth bottle.

IMG_1428

The scent itself is a very intense, masculine one. It mainly smells woody, which is very attractive. The scent lingers on for a long while. I should say it’s a really great blend of notes. It has Cidro, Grapefruit, Lavender and Black pepper in the top notes, which gives it a citrusy & warm feeling. It then has Cypress, Iris essential oil and Violet in the middle notes, which gives it a floral feeling. Lastly, it has Cedar Wood and Amber which gives it an exotic, woody character with a tropical contrast derived from Tonka beans and Vetiver!

IMG_1433

Both my husband and brother tried it and they are absolutely in love with it. It is definitely the kind of smell you associate with a modern man, who strives towards perfection and nothing can ever stop him. I really recommend this scent to anyone out there. The lovely box makes this a perfect gifting choice too.

The box containing 100 ml + 30 ml costs AED 278 and another option is 50 ml + 30 ml, which costs AED 206.
