September 2014 Link Loves!

Hiya guys!

How was your September?. Mine was pretty hectic I should say. Preparing to go to India, blogging day and night to schedule posts ahead of time.. Man!. I dunno how I did it :P. It was my husband’s birthday on the 21st and my family came over to celebrate it together. They brought a gorgeous cake too :). It was the Praline Berry Splendor ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. Yum!

My husband won a cricket tournament and brought home a massive trophy. I just had to share it with you guys. I am way too proud of him right now ♥. Also, kudos to his team for being awesome!

I became extremely happy when a friend of mine who doesn’t follow a skincare routine, decided to get all the basics to start a routine, after reading my skincare basics post. It’s so delightful to be able to inspire someone to take action! She shared a picture of the products she got and I am so thankful to her for sending it my way:

  • An Olay offer pack, containing  day cream, a night cream and  face wash, costing AED30

Introduction to Pose Organic Cosmetics and mini review!

Hey all,

I would like to introduce an organic, toxin free, cruelty free brand called POSE cosmetics to you today. This brand’s products are made in USA in FDA and USDA certified facility. The company called Eterspace imports this brand and distributes it in the UAE.

I love using organic products, because even from the very first application you will feel your skin benefiting from it and loving it. This is not a detailed review since I was provided only sachets for review and not full size products that I could try on for longer. Scroll down for my mini review/first impression.

My thoughts

All five of these smell the same. It’s a peculiar kind of mild smell. It almost reminded me of the Human + Kind’s Anti ageing cream’s smell. I quite like it. I expected a herbal smell for the Spa herbal cream, however it too smells just like the others. The consistency of all of them is creamy/almost liquid like. It’s extremely easy to apply it on to the skin. Probably because of all the organic goodness in them, my skin just drinks up these products as soon as I apply them, leaving them feeling hydrated. These products are cream and oil emulsions. Some are more oilier than others. You definitely get an oily look while applying these. I definitely recommend it for nighttime use. Since it gives an oily finish, I wouldn’t suggest it for morning wear.

Through long term use, these creams are meant to deliver different results. But, to me it all felt the same when applying. However, I do have a special liking towards the Under eye cream, which brightened up the eye area when I woke up in the morning after having applied it overnight and the Rejuvenating face cream, which made my skin look more radiant than the other creams did. Overall, I loved trying out these samples. If you are looking for an organic range of products, I genuinely feel you should give Pose a try. Your skin will really love it and respond well to it.
