I loooooove winters in Dubai. Winters are mild here, it gives you enough opportunity to flaunt your favorite winter clothes. Fresh air, cool misty breeze, rain, and dark clouds make you yearn for more of these days. If you are planning to make a trip to Dubai then I would suggest you to come between November- March. Even though February is a short and relaxed month, nevertheless, this season I had a chance to buy, refill and empty few of my favorite products. In January, I had started a painting after years and this month I managed to complete it. I am planning to complete more of these in coming days as I truly believe in “Art Therapy”. February was all about finding the products that can make my dry skin – smooth, sculpted and hydrated. Here is a Crazy list of my Favorite beauty products for February – Month of love.
1-Jergens All Purpose Face Cream
I have tried several face creams but never got a cream that can make my dry skin hydrated and not oily. I look for a cream that is neither greasy nor dry. Jergens All Purpose Face Cream is rich and creamy without being oily. I use a pea size of this cream on my entire face and it gives me so hydrated and glowing skin. To be very honest, when I saw this product in Carrefour, I bought it only because of its packaging. No, its packaging is not extraordinary! What got my attention was the mid 70s-80s feel of the product. Have you ever tried a product because you liked its packaging?
2-Hask Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying Deep Conditioner
We generally associate coal with cleanliness and these days, you will find charcoal in everything-facewash, facemasks and, even, toothpaste. It is a new Coconut oil in beauty world. When I found Charcoal in a deep conditioner, I loved the idea. “Charcoal, derived from coconut shells, combined with citrus oil, absorbs impurities and helps restore hair to its natural radiance. We promise, the charcoal washes out!”- Hask Beauty. It made my thick wavy hair feel light and silky. I highly recommend this product to anyone who has thick and wavy hair, it removes all the buildup and impurities from the hair and restores natural shine.
3-L’oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
I loved my original L’oreal True Match foundation as it had medium consistency which made it extremely easy to apply with finger. At first, I just hated the new formula of L’oreal True match as it has a liquid consistency with some pigments. It stayed in the cabinet for a while until last month I decided to try it again. I applied it with Sigma flat kabuki (F80) brush and it gave that air-brush foundation look – smooth luminous skin. Now, it is my favorite foundation. I’m a happy bunny!
4-Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
This is one of my favorite concealers especially when I’m in rush or don’t want to wear too much makeup. It provides decent coverage and highlight without being messy. I find it necessary to set it with translucent powder though. I am on my third tube so you can guess my extent of obsession for this concealer plus highlighter.
5-ELF Cosmetics Daily Brush Cleaner
I recently bought this product online, I didn’t expect it to completely clean my brushes as it isn’t a shampoo but a mist spray. I loved the way it cleaned my eye makeup brushes after every use. Not a single pigment was left on the brush. I haven’t used it on my foundation brush as I don’t think so that it can deliver the same result on brushes that were used for cream based products. If you are sensitive to strong fragrance, then you might not want to purchase this product. It has a strong smell but it didn’t bother me much.
6-the Balm – Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection
This palette is guilty of being gorgeous! I am obsessed with this palette. I use it so often that my love for this palette is clearly visible. It is on the list as in February I preferred a subtle look with a glowing skin. Trio acts as a highlighter, eyeshadow and even a blush sometimes so when I am in doubt, I just reach for this palette. Mary Lou-manizer is my favorite….
