Hope you all have had a fabulous week so far!

The beauty blog me has come up with yet another exciting product review. I have taken the liberty to try out some lovely Neutrogena products for all you beauty lovers out there! Read on to know more about Neutrogena’s scintillating new range of products.

If you are planning to embark on a travel adventure this summer then these Neutrogena products are a must have in your carry bag.Not just will they will help you look your best, but will also keep your skin glowing and protected throughout the summer season.

I have now been using the Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine facial wash for over a week now and it has done some serious wonders for my skin. With the prickly heat in Dubai getting worse day-to-day my skin was having some serious acne breakouts and it looked just awful. The Neutrogena face wash has worked like a magic potion for my skin, not only did the acne visibly reduce but it completely disappeared within 3-4 days. I haven’t seen one come on as yet either.

The Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine facial wash keeps both pores and shine under control. It removes 77% of excess sebum and unclogs pores, giving you a naturally fresh, matte finish and visibly refined looking skin. All you need for a flawless-looking complexion this summer!

Next on the bucket list is nothing short of a saviour the Neutrogena Deep Clean Makeup Remover Wipes. With one easy sweep, these ultra-soft, pre-moistened wipes effectively and gently clear away makeup – even waterproof mascara, dirt and oil leaving skin thoroughly clean. Definitely a must for your travel beauty kit!

I can’t stress this enough: don’t leave anywhere without applying SPF. There’s nothing as damaging to your skin as UV radiation. It causes wrinkles, brown spots and the accelerated aging of our skin. Sunscreen is the best ally we’ve got! So, make sure you pack the Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen (SPF 30, 45 & 55). It’s water-resistant, it feels weightless and has a matte finish on your skin. Plus, it’s PABA free and non-comedogenic too.

I am sure after reading this review you cant wait to get your hands on these Neutrogena Goodies! Trust me you will be as excited to use them as I was, oh and did i mention the face wash smells absolutely divine, I haven’t come across a better scented face product in my life. Everything you need in terms of names, pricing and availability can be found below. Hope this helps !

Until next time then beauty lovers xx

Dark Circles – Causes and Cures  

???????????????????????????????????????

 

Hi Lovelies! Hope you had a fab weekend! Today at the beauty blog me we will talk about how we can tackle those dreaded dark circles. Read on to discover causes and cures for darkness under your eyes.

When you look in the mirror, do you see a zombie staring back at you? If so, you’re not alone.  Affecting men and women, this common and persistent problem tends to crop up during adulthood and is a major beauty concern among many. Luckily, there are a number of options available to those who want to say goodbye to panda eyes. With a little more effort and work, you can now make those dreary circles disappear for good.

Somehow, no matter how much sleep you get, you always look like you’ve pulled three all-nighters in a row. That’s because fatigue isn’t the only culprit behind dark circles under the eyes. Other factors that contribute to dark circles appearing are stress and age. As you get older, the skin gets thinner, making dark circles more visible.

 

Before you even think about treatment options, you need to investigate what might be responsible for the discoloration as it can be stemmed from multiple causes.  Read on to discover key reasons along with their cures.

 

Puffiness – These under eye bags cast shadows that make you look exhausted. Cutting out on your salt and alcohol intake will help you avoid water retention and swelling. Propping up your head with an extra pillow will drain the fluid that can accumulate around the eyes when you’re lying down.

 

Pigmentation – To identify if excess pigment is the culprit behind your dark circles; you will need to press on the discoloration. If the darkness remains, your dark circles are caused by hereditary pigmentation or sun exposure (or both).

 

Did your mother or father also have raccoon eyes? Chances are you’ve inherited the condition. Sun exposure, which stimulates melanin production, can also trigger hyperpigmentation. The most effective solution will be to apply sunscreen right up to to your lower lashline everyday.

Our experts also recommend investing in large sunglasses for further protection. Also avoid rubbing your eyes, because friction causes darkening of the skin in the delicate under eye area.

 

Blood Vessels – You can be certain of blood vessels showing through your skin when the darkness lessens as you press on the dark under eye area. Skin on the eye area is thinner and delicate than other facial skin and does not contain oil glands that can help keep this skin moist. One of the major reasons why experts recommend using a separate eye cream.

 

Eye creams fight dark circles by temporarily puffing up skin so the blood vessels underneath aren’t as prevalent. If you have oily skin, you may want to consider using an eye gel because it doesn’t contain the same moisturizers, which could increase the oil production in your skin.

 

Tips on Prevention

  • Apply a moisturizer to the eye area each night.

 

  • To calm puffy eyes, place cold spoons, slices of cucumbers, chilled tea bags, or even a package of frozen peas under your eyes.

 

  • If you suffer from seasonal allergies and hay fever, take an over-the-counter antihistamine. This can reduce puffiness and keep itchiness at bay so you won’t be tempted to rub your eyes

 

  • Vitamin deficiencies can exacerbate dark circles, so cover your bases by taking a daily multivitamin and eat plenty of iron-rich foods, such as beans and dark leafy greens.

The Beauty Blog me recommends the following products for your use:

 

Neo Strata Bionic Eye Cream

Fa introduces Fabulous Floral Scents

faHello lovelies, Last week I had the privilege of attending the fabulous Fa scents launch. It was an absolutely delightful morning organized by some of the lovely ladies at Fa. The event was held at a quaint cafe by the name of Urban Bistro in media city. It was everything you look for at a product launch kind of event. From the food, to the set up and of-course the Fabulous company made it all the more worthwhile.

The event was held to launch Fa’s new line of floaral scents. inclusive of deo’s and roll on’s right in time for Summer. Read on to know more about the product
range and its scintillating offerings.

Discover summer’s new floral fabulous scents from Fa. Feminine and elegant, fresh yet sensuous, and always uplifting, floral scents are simply timeless, and the secret to feeling Fantastic this summer!

From the irresistible blend of subtly intoxicating orchids and sweet powdery, woody violas; to the unexpected fusion of crisp red poppies, bursting with brightness and cheerfulness, and the soft, dewy sweetness of bluebells, the new Fa Floral Protect presents a collection of carefully-crafted, irresistible floral scents that you’ll love to wear all summer long!

Though delicately scented, the new Fa Floral Protect range benefits from a cutting-edge fragrance activation technology, so that you can count on 48-hour protection against pesky problems such as perspiration or body odor, most women struggle with in this region, especially in the sweltering heat of summer. !

Whilst the scent in regular deodorant sprays and roll-ons fades rather quickly on the skin after application, the new fragrance activation technology in the Fa Floral Protect captures the scent in tiny particles and ensures that the fragrance molecules adhere to the skin.

The result is a long-lasting fragrance that makes you feel protected, confident and fabulous. What’s more, you can now say good bye to embarrassing white marks or stains on your clothes after application (Now we finally have some respite, whewww!!). Floral Protect uses Fa’s latest anti-stain technology, a new patent-pending formula that replaces the powder base used in the conventional anti-perspirant with a liquid emulsion formula. A first in the market!

With its distinctly bright, sweet and fruity notes, optimistic tone and 48 hours of floral fabulous protection, the Fa Floral Protect range is the perfect scent for the summer days and nights ahead!

Here are some images from the Fa-bulous Floral Fa event, Enjoy !!
