Nacomi Skincare & Haircare Haul!

Hey 🙂

Today I would love to introduce you to a brand that I got to know myself just recently. It is Nacomi, a Polish brand that’s crueltyfree, handmade, paraben free, SLS free & allergen free. They use only the highest grade raw materials from around the world to make their products highly effective.

Here is everything that I got in my beauty haul & the mini reviews :

Nacomi haul

● Moroccan Argan Intensive Hydration Night cream – This one is a thick, luxurious cream that smells absolutely divine. It is, just as it’s name suggests, intensely hydrating thanks to the presence of Hyaluronic Acid in it. Other ingredients that make this cream truly moisturizing are Argan oil (sourced from Morocco), Shea butter (from Africa) & Avocado oil. It melts right into the skin on application.

Nacomi night cream

The brand has different creams targeting different age groups. The one I got is for my skin type (normal/dry) and targeting 30+ when the first wrinkles start showing. I am hitting 30 this year and I feel it’s a match made in heaven for my skin. I highly recommend this night cream ♡

● No Rinse Argan hair conditioner – As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, I am trying my best to keep my hair looking like it has some life. So, this leave in conditioner attracted my attention. It has Argan oil & Cashmere protein in it to deliver healthy, silky hair.

Argan leave in conditioner

It’s white in color and has a watery texture. It smells like any other hair conditioner – very pleasant and lovely. The smell lingers in the hair, at the same time giving it an instant shine. I like apply it on my hair at night or when it looks extra lifeless before stepping out of my home. It comes in a plastic spray bottle, convenient to spritz on to the hair. It’s long term efforts are yet to be known. Anyways, I got 2 bottles to keep it stocked.

● Hair Mask with Moroccan Argan oil – The ingredients of this thick, white, creamy mask are the same as the ones I just discussed in the leave in conditioner. It is supposed to regenerate and smoothen the hair, strengthening the hair against damage and breakage and restoring shine to dull hair.

Argan hair mask

I usually apply it for 20 mins and wash off. The hair does feel instantly soft and manageable. I am currently using it once a week. It comes in a tube with a flip open lid, conveniently designed to be used while in shower.

All of the above are priced between AED 50 – AED 85 and were purchased from the store named ‘Solace’, Al Wahda Mall, Abu Dhabi. The staff there are so friendly and amazing. On asking for samples if any, that suits my skin type (normal/dry), they gave me two awesome product samples. Here they are :

● Natural Sugar Scrub – This one is a dense scrub, packed with sugar thats immersed in a base of Argan oil & Shea butter. It also contains strawberry seeds for exfoliation (first time coming across strawberry seeds used for this purpose!). It smells strongly of coffee. I believe it contains ground coffee beans too. I have used it only on my body, since I feel it’s a bit too abrasive for facial skin.

Nacomi body scrub

● Cleansing oil – This yellow colored cleansing oil helps in perfect makeup removal while clearing all impurities from the skin. It smells so heavenly and is a mix of several precious oils. Mann, I wanna make this into a perfume and keeps smelling it throughout the day. What a lovely, effective product!.

Nacomi cleansing oil

Overall, Nacomi a great natural beauty brand. Definitely check them out and if you have any wonderful experience with any of the products from this brand, kindly suggest them in the comments below and I will go try it out for myself =)

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!

Hydrabio serum

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.

TBS Oils of Life

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.

Dadi oil

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.

Rasasi Boruzz

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 ♡

Vouchers

vouchers

● A 20 % discount voucher and leaflet for The Body Shop skin care and make up products
● Boruzz by Rasasi 10% off voucher

● Gift voucher from Eternel Clinic to try their fantastic treatments, with a buy one & get another treatment for free offer

Review : Dove Elixir Hibiscus & Argan oil!

Hey guys!

About 2.5 months ago, I bought Dove’s Nourished Shine Hibiscus & Argan oil. One of the first things that attracted me to it is ofcourse the brand. I love Dove plus I haven’t come across this Dove product in the UAE. There are three variants and I got the third one which is the Hibiscus and Argan oil one, both of which are great for the hair.

Dove Elixir 1

The oil is light and non greasy. It says ‘Precious oils with real ingredients’ on the outer box and the bottle. You can see golden yellow flakes floating inside the bottle and those are Rose flower petals (according to the ingredients list). These have lost it’s color since it’s completely infused in the oil. I love it’s beautiful smell. It’s so divine. Since it’s a very light oil, you can use it to simply run through your hair even just before heading out, just to keep your hair looking well groomed with no flyaways. I mostly use it at night before heading to bed though.

Dove Elixir 2

The oil comes in a solid glass bottle fitted with a nozzle. I love the bottle since it’s so pretty and can be reused once it’s empty. The nozzle is tiny though, almost as if it was designed to pump a serum product, not oil. Anyways, I use about 10 pumps each time I oil. In the above pic you can see some rose petals have lodged itself in the tube that leads to the nozzle. That’s actually a nuisance. That plus the tiny nozzle makes it tough to pump the oil out. Sometimes tiny pieces of petals makes it’s way through the nozzle but large ones get lodged in the tube.

This was actually an impulse buy. Of late, I research a lot before buying a product. But this one was more like a “Saw it, want it” situation. I grabbed it just before heading to the payment area. Once I got home, I did my usual research, went through the ingredients etc and found something pretty disappointing… 78% of this oil consists of mineral oil!. Like what the hell!. Mineral oil is a cheap, base oil that some companies use. There are debates as to whether mineral oil is good or bad. Some say it’s plain bad while some say it’s good to pull moisture in, especially in hot climates. Whatever the case, 78% of this oil is mineral oil, man.. That means only the rest of it are Hibiscus and Argan and other ingredients.

I can’t say I don’t recommend it. You could maybe buy it and give it a try. But, for me, definitely not a repeat buy.

Price : Rs. 185 (AED 10.34) for a bottle containing 90 ml.

I bought this from Navaratna Hypermarket, Moonnupeediga, Kerala.

Love Your Skin This Valentine’s Day with Izil!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means stuffed animals, chocolate hearts and red roses everywhere you turn. Valentine’s Day gives us a chance to step back from our busy lives and take a moment to remember what’s important. It is true that we should love and be kind to our family and friends every day, but sometimes we need that reason to go above and beyond and tell them how we really feel.

Beyond loving each other, it’s a time to remember to love ourselves and make the most of the opportunity to pamper ourselves and commit to treating our bodies and skin to healthy nurturing ingredients.

As you prepare for a night out with your valentine, you may start to feel the added pressure to look your best, and so here’s Izil Natural Argan Beauty’s tips for looking your very best this Valentine’s Day with their natural argan oil products:

The ‘Golden Glow’ 2 in 1 Face Scrub and Mask (AED 140) is made with honey, saffron and 100% pure Argan Oil, blended together to create a natural 2 in 1 face scrub and mask.

Review: Argan oil from Arganfarm plus a DIY Rhassoul clay face mask!

Hello friends!

Argan oil is a highly beneficial oil that has been around for many years but have been a rage of late, with everyone talking about it. I personally love this oil. It is part of my daily skincare routine. When I won a 50 ml bottle Argan oil from Arganfarm, I was over the moon!.

First of all, a bit of details about this brand : Arganfarm has an online store and it is www.arganfarm.com/argan-oil-shop. You can buy Argan oil from them particularly for cosmetic use or for culinary use. What I noticed about this brand is that they are very ardent in their love for this oil and is doing everything in their power to make sure people get their facts about Argan oil right. There are many myths surrounding this oil. They even have a blog dedicated to educating people about this wonderful oil. In that blog, they do extremely informative posts about this oil. How this brand works to get the purest Argan oil, is listed there in detail for you to read and discover. Everything this brand does is transparent and I love that!

Here is my review on the oil :

The oil is golden in color. The smell is nutty, raw and earthy. I just love that smell. When I use it on my skin, I feel like I am indulging in something luxurious. The smell does fade away within minutes of applying the oil. The oil gets absorbed really fast and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth.

Blogpix 051

It’s quite light when compared to another brand I have used in the past. I am loving the texture of the Arganfarm oil more.

Blogpix 055I use it every night to moisturize my skin and when I wake up in the morning, my skin looks supple, hydrated and soft. There is no oiliness at all.

It comes in a plastic bottle with a sprayer and a cap. Now the one thing I dislike about this product is the sprayer. When spraying onto my hand, it sprays it to the sides too though I direct it to the center of my palm. I felt it is resulting in wastage and as such transferred it into the empty glass bottle of the previous brand I have used. It comes with a dropper and is so much more convenient to use without any wastage.

Argan oil fights against aging and acne, defends your skin against sun damage, softens the skin, regulates sebum production in people with oily skin and more.

Arganfarm sources their 100% pure and Fair – Trade Argan oil from women oil cooperatives in Morocco, directly and brings it to the consumer without involving any middlemen. They believe in preserving and protecting the Argan trees and never misusing it. I trust this brand so much and appreciate their willingness to educate more and more people.

Price: The bottle contains 50 ml and is worth $24.95 (AED 91.64). If you wish to do a trial first, you can buy a 15 ml bottle for $14.95 (AED 54.91) or a 30ml bottle for $19.95 (AED 73.27).

With every purchase of a 30ml or a 50ml Argan oil, they include a free beauty bonus. It’s a 100 gms bag of Rhassoul clay sourced from the Atlas mountains in Morocco!. They even included that in my winning package.

Blogpix 052

Blogpix 053

These are natural and just as they are mined. I was super excited to try this. Rhassoul clay or Ghassoul clay is known for their purifying properties. They help in moisturizing your skin and tightening your pores thus giving it a smooth and youthful look. The best thing is you can use rhassoul clay on your hair too for a hair strengthening treatment and it also boosts the hair’s shine.

There are lots of face mask/hair mask recipes online incorporating rhassoul clay. I would like to write about the face mask I made and loved using on my face. It gave me beautifully clear and hydrated result. You should totally try it!

You will need:

  • A little glass container to mix and store the mask

  • Argan oil
  • Rosewater
  • Water

Blogpix 058

Method: Mix some drops of both oils and rosewater into the container, in which you have put the rhassoul clay pieces. I didn’t use any particular measurements but used more of the rosewater. Mix using a toothpick. At first I had thought of not using water at all. But in order to help dissolve the clay you definitely need to use some amount of water.

Here is the mix on my hand (this mix doesn’t have water in it. I mixed water later on but didn’t click a picture.)

Once you wash it off, your skin feels tight in a good way and instantly radiant. I LOVE this mask!. I didn’t store it in the fridge. It stayed outside on my kitchen counter for a month without any problems. This mask can be used twice a week. I haven’t used this clay on my hair yet. I will be doing that soon.

Shipping

Arganfarm ships worldwide. When I won, they asked me for my street address and I gave them my physical address. However, the package was sent using Deutsche post. Once it reached UAE, it was sent right back since my address didn’t contain my P. O.Box :(. It was so saddening. However, the wonderful people at Arganfarm agreed to sent me a package again but this time to my postal address. I was overjoyed. It reached here in a week which is actually pretty fast for postal service.

I highly recommend this Argan oil. It’s premium and absolutely pure. If you would like to know more about Argan oil and it’s many uses, Arganfarm has also brought out a very informative ebook!.
