March Favorites 2015!

Monday, 30 March 2015



Hiya Flowers,
This month has gone quickly. I love March because of my birthday and above all spring. I love flowers and yearn to have a whiff of them almost everyday. Ok prick the dream(y) balloon, we have some serious matter at hand and that is to discuss my March Favorites.

Makeup Revolution Blush "Hot" PKR 225.
Yes I have included this lovely again in my favorites because simply the color looks too flattering on me and gives me those natural pink healthy cheeks which honestly speaking, every girl craves for, then dears grab this cheap but effective blusher. Check my full review here

Sweet Touch Lipstick "793" PKR 250.
I bought this lipstick on a whim. It's quite a daring pink that obviously I wouldn't wear on an everyday basis. But I have been wearing it as a stain with a lip balm underneath to buff away any cracks and Man! It looks absolutely beautiful and natural. A perfect shade for this transition period. Check my full review here

Bh Cosmetics Pink A Dot Powder Brush PKR 2900 whole set.
I thought my angled blush brush from this set was the only master of applying blush but instead I have found the jack of all trades and that being the powder brush from this set. I use it to apply my powder, buff my bb cream to hide any streaking and apply my blush and I'm good to go. Love this brush. Check my full review here

St Ives Green Tea Blemish Control Gel Cleanser PKR 495
This smells really good and herbal-ly. I use it everyday and I'm noticing my acne spots fading and my skin getting clearer. I really like this cleanser. Check my full review here

St Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer PKR 475
I'm not sure about this moisturizer. I love it but fail to describe the brilliance of this moisturizer. I would say I never thought that such an affordable moisturizer can work wonders but it does and I'm glad I picked this up. Review will be up soon.

Crush By David Archuleta
I've been listening to this song the whole month and I'm obsessed. I never get tired of listening to this song and would recommend it to you if you are feeling a bit moody.

So that's it for now folks. These were the items I used in the month of march.

Review // St Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Gel Cleanser!

Thursday, 26 March 2015


Hello beauties,
We are always on the lookout for a perfect product which would give us that beautiful clear skin. Well, I have found something that my skin is loving at the moment and that is the St Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Gel Cleanser. Before I go on further, let me tell you that my skin is dry/normal and I get a few pimples here and there which frustratingly leave behind spots due to my silly habit of scratching them.

Price
I bought it for 495 PKR from Al Fatah.
It is available from all leading stores and you can also purchase it from just4girls.pk

Claims
Gently clears breakouts & calms redness.
* Hypoallergenic
* Non - Comedogenic
* Oil-Free
* Formulated without Parabens
* Dermatologist Tested

Active Ingredient
Salicylic Acid (2%)

Packaging
It comes in a 200ml clear plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which is great and hygienic. I love the simple but decent packaging. However due to its big size, it isn't travel friendly.

Consistency
It says on the bottle that it is a gel cleanser, but in reality the consistency is a lot thinner than a gel and hence is runny. This cleanser is very light green in color.

Scent
Oh, I love the scent. It is fresh, tangy and very herbal-ly. It does smell of green tea and a bit like jasmine. The scent is not overpowering, I think that it won't bother sensitive noses.

My Thoughts
This cleanser lathers very nicely and you need a pea sized amount to work into a lather. After washing my face with this cleanser, my skin feels dry and tight but not too much. I've heard people claiming that this cleanser is for oily skins and yes that's absolutely true but the reason I love it, is my acne spots have started fading and my pimples were gone after a day or two. I don't know how but it kind of dries up the pimples and my skin looks very clear. I do moisturize my skin thoroughly after using this and then everything settles down. My face has never looked this clean before and I absolutely adore using this cleanser everyday because this is the only product I've found that in actual gets rid of pimples. I'm loving this product. Also in summers this product will come very useful as one likes to have a mattified complexion in summers and this does exactly that. I didn't face any problem with this cleanser and it is formulated without parabens which is awesome. Also this product contains Salicylic Acid which everyone knows combats acne. Overall I would say this is a great cleanser for those who want clean, clear and matte skin. I would give 4.5/5 to this product.

Recommendation
If you want a cleanser that isn't heavy on the pocket and does a great job of getting rid of pimples then buy it.

Would I Repurchase?
Yes

What I Received On My Birthday!

Tuesday, 24 March 2015











Hello Lovelies,

This is a special post as it's my birthday today. We don't celebrate birthday in a traditional manner but still I got a few presents which I can't wait to show you. But before going on further, my brother lifted the online shopping ban from me because of my birthday and also gave me some cash which I'm almost bubbling inside to spend on makeup obviously.

Three Unstitched Suits
I got three unstitched suits, one from my mother, one from my Phuppo and one from my Khala. I just can't wait to take them to the tailor and have them stitched the way I want.

Bh Cosmetics Pink A Dot 11pcs Brush Set
Now this was a very early birthday present given to me by my brother. I requested him to get me this and he did. This brush set was worth an investment. You can read my review here

Shoes
I love wedges and hence my wish was fulfilled by another Khala of mine and I'm so thankful to her. I love these shoes already.

Books and Sunglasses
This was given to me by a sweet friend of mine. I got three books of Danielle Steele, one of Sandra Brown and the last one of Jackie Collins. I can't wait to read and review them. These sunglasses are super cute.

Rivaj lip pencils, a cute mirror and jewelry
I also received these from a friend of mine. I love the two sets of earrings, one necklace and a bracelet which she gave me. The Rivaj pencils are very pretty and the mirror comes very handy.

Roses
And can you spot those roses in the background? My brother brought me these from our very own garden and dear me, it made my day.

Ok, so these were the things I received and each one of these are very close and dear to me. I'm looking forward to buy makeup myself to fulfill my craving.

Review // Freeman Cucumber Peel Off Mask!

Saturday, 21 March 2015


Hello buddies,
I hope you all are doing good and really keeping up with your skincare routines. I've been buying Freeman masks for quite sometime and all have been peel offs. This month I wanted to purchase the ones without having to peel off but my family loves peel offs so much that they forced me to stick to my old ways and hence I purchased a peel off mask
again.

Price
I bought it for PKR 325 from Al Fatah.

Claims
A super-cooling, skin-quenching mask that gently peels away impurities that can cause skin to be rough and dull. Contains Cucumber Extract and Aloe to soothe while moisturizing, ensuring skin feels soft and silky-smooth after every use. Perfect for normal to combination skin.

To Use
Apply evenly to face, avoiding eye area. Leave on 5-10 minutes or until dry. Gently peel off mask. Rinse with warm water.

Packaging
It comes in a 150ml green colored squeeze(y) tube with a flip flop cap. Nothing captivating but to tell you I love tubes a lot because they look so cute even though they are a bit messy to work with. The tube is secure, the cap shuts tightly and there is no problem of leakage, in other words, it is travel friendly.

Consistency
It has a thick gel like consistency that spreads evenly onto the skin without having to struggle hard.

Scent
Now this may put off some people but this smells exactly like cucumbers which I'm not really a fan of(it is mild though, nothing overpowering). On a good note the scent vanishes when you apply this mask on your face.

My Thoughts
I hate peel offs because they feel very tacky and irritating especially when the skin starts tightening. I have a problem with peel offs then that doesn't mean you would to, because everyone is different. However, I apply this mask on my face with my fingers and wait for 15 to 20 minutes for it to dry completely. After that I take my mask off and voila, my face looks all clean, fresh and a little dry which after sometime disappears and my skin looks like I've just had a facial. This mask is really great for the price it comes in. It refreshes the skin, tightens my pores and reduces the appearance of my blemishes which I'm really concerned about. I haven't noticed any breakouts after using this mask, to put into better words, I haven't had any nasty experiences with this mask. I don't know how but upon application this mask gives a cooling effect which in the winter is a downer but in the summers it is a winner. All in all I'm very happy about this mask and somehow I feel almost pleased to have picked this mask from a trusted brand. The cons I've found is the unpleasant scent, this mask does not dry very quickly and if the mask gets stuck in your hair then it is quite a struggle to take it off. Overall this mask gets a 4/5 from me and this mask does not contain any Parabens.

Recommendation
To everyone

Would I Repurchase
Yes

Review // Harmony Fruity Soaps!

Sunday, 15 March 2015




Hello Fellas,
This post is quite picture heavy and today I'm going to review these Harmony Fruity Soaps which I've been thinking to review for quite sometime. I mean these soaps are so good that dedicating a post to these beauties is necessary. I bought these soaps from Al Fatah for PKR 42 each. These soaps come in different fruit versions and I'm going to go through each of them separately. I love their packaging and their fun colors. They weigh 150g and these soaps do not contain harmful ingredients.

Claims
A blend of moisturizer and aloe vera extract keep your skin moist. Enriched with natural fruit extract which contains vitamins, makes your skin feel smooth and soft. The exclusive fruit fragrance leaves natural freshness and scent.


Strawberry Soap
This one is my favorite from the entire bunch. It is colored reddish pink whereas in the picture, it looks more neon and red. The smell is amazing, exactly like strawberry candies and I really enjoy it when in the shower.


Peach Soap
This smells very light but nice. Perfect for those who have sensitive noses. It does smell of peaches but in an artificial sort of way. It is light peach pinkish colored, very pretty in real life.


Mango Soap
Ahh, mangoes! This does smell of mangoes in a very light way. I really like the smell. It has a yellow like an egg york color.


Lemon Soap
I hate the scent of this soap. It smells exactly like lemon max bar and this is mostly the problem with lemon based products. It is yellow in color and I avoid buying this version. It depends on the person, you may like the scent of this soap but I don't.


Orange Soap
I'm not a fan of its fragrance. It smells very tangy and fake, almost like orange sweets which I'm not really interested in. It is orange colored and I also avoid buying this soap.


Grape Soap
This looks very blue in the image but actually it is a purple colored soap. This smells really yummy, like grape flavored candies and jelly beans. Really like this scent. Also this soap has the strongest scent in the entire range.

Now some of the soaps from this range smell great and lather nicely. They come cheap but perform like expensive soaps. After using these, my body doesn't feel dry or itchy. You really don't need a shower gel while using these. They are jumbo in size and above all feel very light weight in hand. They last for a pretty good time and are very economical for large families. I have found no cons regarding these soaps.These are very nice soaps and I would recommend them to everyone.

Wednesday, 11 March 2015


Hello everyone,
I am here again with my newly purchased series. I was seriously running low on some items and also as it is the start of the month, so everybody likes to stock up grocery and random stuff. Let's see what I bought this month. I bought all of these items from Al Fatah except the cane basket you can see in the picture.

Cane Basket PKR 350
I purchased this pretty basket from a local cane shop and I'm so happy to be an owner of this lovely basket. The reason I purchased it because I needed something to store my bath and skincare products and it looks pretty cool on my vanity.

Colgate Toothpaste PKR 105
I've been buying this toothpaste for very long and I like it.

Harmony Soaps PKR 42 each
My favorite soaps. They smell amazing and come with a cheap price tag but perform like expensive soaps. Great. I will review these as well.

I Love Body Luxuries Body Splash PKR 155
I love body luxuries body mists and they are awesome dupes of Bath & Body Works Body Mists. These are a must have.

St Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer PKR 475
Finally I have purchased this much praised moisturizer and God! It smells lovely, almost like roses. A review will be up soon.

Freeman Cucumber Peel Off Face Mask PKR 325
I adore Freeman Masks. They come cheap and perform so well. I'm impressed. Keep looking for a review soon.

St Ives Green Tea Gel Cleanser PKR 495
I'm not sure about this but I needed a cleanser and I bought it because I trust St Ives. Also this helps to cure acne and this is all my skin needs right now. A review will be up soon.

Clean & Clean Deep Cleansing Lotion PKR 295
This is a toner and is a must in my household. My family swears by it and yeah it is a really nice toner. Review here

Head & Shoulders Anti Hairfall Shampoo PKR 335

Review // Sther Lorys Argan Oil Hair Cream!

Tuesday, 3 March 2015


Hello Ladies,
I hope you all are well and enjoying this somewhat cold weather. Well honestly I'm hating this weather. It chills me to my very bones and I feel kind(a) old. Lol. So I've been loving this Lorys Hair Cream for quite sometime and now that it's almost empty, I decided to review it.

Price
I bought it for 335 PKR from Al Fatah.

Claims
The new Hair Cream Lorys Argan Oil- Omega 6 and 9 was developed for maximum moisture and Frizz control. Its exclusive formula contains 100% natural Argan Oil- the 'Moroccan Gold'- that helps revitalize the hair, seals cuticles, reduces volumes and gives softness and intense shine.

Packaging
This cream comes in a 1000g plastic container from which you can see the cream inside. This packaging is not secure as the cap comes off if the product slips and the plastic feels a little flimsy. I wish it came in a squeeze tube or bottle because taking the cream out from this container can get really messy.

Consistency
This cream is quite thick(not too much though).

Scent
It does not smell pleasant and that is a big downer but after rinsing this out, the smell goes away and does not linger.

My Thoughts
I only apply this cream on half of my head leaving the scalp. This cream is nice to work with as it reaches easily wherever you apply it. I wait for 5 minutes and then rinse it out of my hair. This cream is claimed to minimize frizzy hair and to provide moisture. It does reduce my frizz to some content and my hair feels visibly softer. I do not know how but this cream makes my hair shiny, healthy and they feel thick to the touch. I love this cream especially the large quantity it comes with for such a cheap price tag. My whole family used this cream and it lasted me three months. Now that it's empty I am looking forward to try some new conditioners as I am a very curious personality who enjoys finding out new gems. Overall I would give 4/5 to this product and would like to say that this Hair cream is great for people with large families. Also this cream does not contain Parabens which is a huge plus and it does not weigh down my hair. I had no problem rinsing the product out and my hair felt squeaky clean without any residue left behind.

Recommendation
To everyone as it is very economical.

Would I Repurchase
Yes, ofcourse.
