I’m a girl who loves trying new hair and skin products and always updating my beauty routine. But, there are some constants that I simply cannot change! I’ve been using these products for over a month now & it’s safe to say that I’m OBSESSED!
Please keep in mind that what could work on my skin and hair may not work on yours! So please do your research before applying anything to yourself!
REVLON ALL IN ONE HAIR TREATMENT
I’ve recently come across this product in the most random way ever & I’m glad I did. I used this product all summer long and it just feels right to recommend it & share with you guys. This product has saved my hair from getting dry and brittle from all the beach days and the heat during summer. Another good thing about this product is that it’s not an oil or a serum so it won’t leave your hair feeling greasy. Spray it moderately on your wet hair after you shower. This product has 10 benefits and I can assure you they all work!
- Heat protection
- Repairs dry and damaged hair
- Silkiness & smoothness
- Hair color protection
- Easier brushing & ironing
- Split end prevention
- Shine & frizz control
- Long-lasting hairstyle
- Adds body
DXB: You can find it on Souq.com for 37 AED
Cairo: You can buy it from big Beauty Salons like Amr Sadek or Mohamed Al Sagheer for around 350 EGP
L’OREAL REVITALIFT FILLER RENEW EVENING MASK
I don’t know if you noticed but I am a huge fan of L’oreal products. They work so well on my face and I always see immediate results.
I bought this mask at the beginning of August and I have been using it ever since (4 weeks)! I apply a thin layer of this mask every evening and I wake up with my skin feeling plumped, hydrated, and I can immediately leave the house without feeling the need to apply any makeup. I can honestly tell the difference in my skin the next morning if I forgot to apply it the night before (and it’s not a good one). Now the reason this product works magic is due to its concentration of hyaluronic acid & its ability to penetrate through the skin. Hylaronic acid has many benefits for the skin especially when it comes to anti-aging. It also helps with hydrating and calming the skin and can work on all skin types so you don’t need to worry if your skin is dry, oily, or sensitive.
Additionally, this product doesn’t leave a sticky or greasy residue & its easily absorbed into the skin. It has made its way into my skincare routine & will stay there for a while!
DXB: You can find it on Souq.com for 99 AED
Cairo: You can find it on Souq.com for 340 EGP
Along with the L’oreal evening mask, I have also added an eye cream to my skincare also routine from… L’oreal (what a surprise)
AGE PERFECT EYES 360º
This product has greatly helped brighten the dark circles under my eyes. Now they won’t be completely gone, but you will definitely see a change after using it for a short period of time. Dark circles are caused by many factors like genes, lifestyle routine (what we eat and drink), skincare and, of course, our sleeping routine. I believe that the eyes and the lips are mostly ignored in many girls’ skincare routine & this can make a huge difference if changed!
I massage this eye cream in a circular motion every night using the applicator as shown above along with the Revitalift evening mask and rinse it off in the morning. The applicator stays cold so it depuffs and cools the under eye area and has a soothing effect!
Disclaimer- it hurts if the product gets in your eye so be careful!
DXB: You can find it on Souq.com for 109 AED
Cairo: It’s actually unavailable on Souq.com but you can find it in the airport’s duty-free (that’s where I got it)
Now I know many people are skeptical when it comes to hair vitamins but I personally noticed a difference after using this product. The main reason people feel that way is because they’re inconsistent. The only way you can see results from any treatment is through consistency. Your body won’t react to anything before two weeks, whether it’s working out, taking pills, or even changing your skincare routine. So, give it time and you will start seeing results after a minimum of 4 weeks. Greorin L is a German brand that only sells hair products. I take two tablets every day after lunch.
DXB: I’ve been searching for it for a while and I couldn’t find it anywhere but you can check in Life or Aster Pharmacy
Cairo: To be honest, I don’t think Cairo has this brand but there are alternatives in the market like Cystine
Saudi: You can find it in Al Nahdi Pharmacies for 270 SR (that’s where I got it)
MARC JACOBS SHAMELESS FOUNDATION
I’ve recently been buying a lot of foundation products partly because it’s summer & I’m tan so my skintone keeps changing but mainly because I’m trying to find my go-to medium to high coverage foundation. The Fenty Beauty and Nars Radiant foundation used to be my favorite but… things have changed and I find myself using Marc Jacobs Shameless foundation for a while now. The reason this product is a winner is that it’s so light on the skin you almost forget you have it on! You can wear it all day and your face won’t feel cakey or oily. It can be worn in the morning because it has SPF of 25 and at night because it has medium coverage. It’s definitely a must have!!
I use it in the shade of medium Y360
DXB: You can find it at Sephora for 190 AED
Cairo: Unfortunately Sephora doesn’t deliver to Egypt
So these are the products that made my August slightly better. Let me know in the comments section below if you’ve tried any of them & if you’ve seen any change in your hair and skin! ♥
