Fresh Farmacy Review

IMG_1953.jpg

I am finally publishing the long, overdue review for Fresh Farmacy. I promised you guys a review, and here it is. It’s been a while since I checked this blog, but it’s because I’ve been traveling, I’m in Orlando! I’m thinking of doing travel diaries, or posts after Ramadan, and to show you places to go to when in Orlando.

I’ve been shopping a lot at Target and Ulta, so if you want a a general beauty haul I can definitely do that. Without further ado, let’s get on to this review.

Fresh Farmacy is a bar of soap, meant for your face (and I think your body as well) it is great if you have sensitive oily skin. You basically do what you would do if it was just a bar of soap, you just wash it on your hands until you get suds then scrub it all over your face. I suggest only using this only once or twice a week.

When you wash it off your face, it will feel like as though there are no oils whatsoever. If you have ever tried this soap bars in hotels, some of them feel weird afterwards. You can’t really rub your hands together, or if you go through your hair with your hands it won’t be smooth. Anyway, that’s how your face will feel.

This is definitely something I would recommend for oily skin people, it is such an amazing product if you are looking for new ways to get rid of the horrible oils on your skin.

If you have any products I should try out, please tell me about them. Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

What’s In My Skincare Bag?

I have seen a lot of posts talking about what is in their makeup bag, but I have never seen a what’s in my skincare bag. Maybe some don’t even have a skincare bag, but I do. I always go to my beach house every weekend, and I like to pack a few things before I leave.

I’ll usually start with packing my face cleanser or wash first. If I am looking for something simple to pack, then I’ll just get the oil free acne wash from Clean & Clear. I am not a huge fan of the scent, but it helps clean and freshen your face up. If you know any other simple face cleansers, please tell me because I’m looking for new ones to try out.

Then I’ll pack my toner and eye cream. I have been using this toner for a while, I really like it. It helps to control blemishes and spots. This product as well helps to freshen up my face, I like to use this in the morning because it helps to wake me up by how cool it is.

The eye cream is from bare minerals, I don’t really need an eye cream, but the packaging was too cute. I just love the feeling of it anyway.

Then lastly, I will pack up my moisturizer and my anti spot gel. Yesterday I talked about this in my 3 ways to prevent zits, so I’m not going to go into detail about that. I like this moisturizer, especially during the summer  because it’s light. My skin tends to get oily during the summer, but places near my nose always dry up, so this moisturizer is always great.

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

3 Ways To: Prevent Zits

Previous 3 Ways To was about organizing your lipsticks.

Welcome back to 3 ways to where every Sunday I tell you about 3 ways to whatever. If you have any requests please make sure to tell me in the comments. For today’s 3 ways to,  it’s going to be all about those nasty mountains that grow on our faces. I’ll show you 3 ways to stop that from happening.

IMG_1472.JPGThe first way is to avoid eating chocolate as much. Our tastebuds don’t know what is good and bad for our skin. We all just crave that amazing junk food, we can’t help it though. Researchers have found that there is a link between chocolate and acne, unfortunately. But, not all people get acne from chocolate but I know for sure I do. So if you’re wondering why you keep getting zits when you wash your face everyday, maybe it’s because of that chocolate you’re eating.

This is a mistake that a lot of people do, that wear makeup almost everyday. If you are the type of person that will literally cover their face with powder, and get oily skin, then you need to read carefully. If you feel like throughout the day your skin is getting oily, don’t cover it by using powder, just blot your face with oil blotting sheets. If you can’t find any of them, just use coffee filters, they work just as great.

And lastly the product that I always talk about. This is literally my life saver. I know a lot of people use this product, and all I hear are great reviews. This is such an amazing product, if you have not tried it out make sure to do so. This is the Clean & Clear anti spot gel, if you use this daily, then your pimple will be gone in two or three days. If you ever feel that a pimple is going to come soon, just rub some of that product on that area, that pimple will change it’s mind.

So these are three ways to prevent pimples, thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed. All the love.

 

Night Skincare Routine

IMG_1109

i recently did a morning skincare routine, and two of the products that are shown above, the tea tree water and the clean and clear moisturizer, have  been explained in that post. so if you want a brief explanation of those products, check that post out. also, i have mentioned the dark angels from lush in a post a while back.

IMG_1111

if during that day, my skin was not that oily, i would use this neutrogena face wash instead of the lush’s dark angel one. this has a great scent to it, and it will leave your face refreshed. it is oil free and helps to get rid of excess oils. once i’m done with that, i will spray some of my tea tree water on my face and let it dry.

IMG_1115

after i have added on my clean and clear moisturizer, i will add this eye cream from bare minerals. i don’t really need it but i just like how it feels like under my eyes and on my eyelids. it’s very soothing.

next i apply the clean and clear acne spot treatment on my zits or pimples. this stuff is amazing, i use this daily and around 2 or 3 days, my zit is gone. it is such an amazing product and i just love it so much. i definitely recommend it when those unnecessary mountains decided to grow on your face.

so this is my night skincare routine, what’s your favorite product in your night skincare routine? thank you for reading. all the love.

Morning Skincare Routine

IMG_1052

my morning skin care routine is very limited with products. since the night before, i use a lot of products, then i would use little products to my skin so it won’t get irritated. two of these products are great for oily skin but not for dry skin.

IMG_1053

first off, i would start off by washing my face with warm water. then i’ll start washing my face with this cleanser. this is the clean and clear morning energy, this one is the bursting beads one, but they’re so many more off them. this is oil free so its great for us people. it really helps with excess oil and washing off any other germs. it will leave your face refreshed and will wake you up.

then i will use these blemish control pads from first aid beauty. these work as a toner for me as well, they really help with pores, breakouts, and controlling oil. this is such a great product, it leaves your face feeling so clean.

IMG_1054

then i’ll moisturize my face. this is the clean and clear dual action. its oil free but it’s also great for dry skin. it won’t leave your face very dry because it is such a light moisturizer. i use this only for the summer, because my skin tends to get really oily. 

that is my morning skin care routine, hope you enjoyed reading it. tell me if you have ever tried any of these products. all the love.

 

 

What’s In My Purse

IMG_1023

obviously this is not a purse but i have been obsessed with this back pack. it’s from Henri Bendel and it is a bit pricey, but such a perfect size to store all your essentials and random small pieces. i will show you what i pack in my purse for when i go to my beach house. (yesterday’s post, i talked about how i pack for my beach house.)

IMG_1020

as you can see there a few items here and there. btw. my laptop does not fit in this bag, i just like to carry it around, just decided to add it in.

first thing is gum, i always carry gum around with me just in case i bump into someone, and i need to quickly freshen my breathe.

second are my sun glasses, i just need them, if i want to hide my dark under eye circles or the sun is bothering me. these are Henri Bendel as well.

third is my hand sanitizer, you just need to carry this around. germs are not my best friends.

fourth is my phone charger, i dont know what to say for this. what if my phone dies and i need to contact someone. (i currently dont have a portable charge but i just ordered one which should be coming soon.)

fifth is my pill box, the alarm would start ringing on my phone and i dont have my medicine with me. so its always great to have one. i got this from target in case you were wondering.

sixth are these two small notebooks. the pink one says, “sweet nothings” and its from kates spade. its basically where i put all my ideas, grocery, or just some random notes in it. the book with the two girls are also from Henri Bendel, it’s a calendar and it really helps me with organizing this blog. when to post each post and so on.

seventh, i love reading, as i mentioned in my happiness tag, so if i’m ever bored, i’ll just start reading. i still haven’t started reading this book. its called, darkness the color of snow.

IMG_1021.JPG

i had to talk about this product alone. summer is basically here in kuwait which means oily skin for me. yay. anyway, i always have to carry these around, they’re oil blotting sheets. if you have oily skin and you never tried this exact one (not the colorful ones), then you definitely should because they’re my life savers.

this is what i have in my purse, (beach house edition) and tell me what your essentials are in general. i would love to know. all the love.
