A Guide To Shop Argan oil And Handmade Soaps in Morocco

With Argan Oil gaining in popularity, there are a lot of products popping up online and even in stores claiming to be “Pure Argan Oil”. Unfortunately, there are a lot of brands that you want to avoid. So, when I travelled to Morocco, I was sure to come back home in London with at least one item in my suitcase from Morocco- Argan oil and Argan oil hair serum, an authentic one.

February Beauty Haul: Laura Mercier, Rahua, Smashbox

From long-wear foundations to finishing powder and hair-mask, it seems February is the month for revolutionary beauty. I’ve rounded up a few of my must-have new buys because its about making smarter decisions when purchasing beauty products instead of just impulse buying random things. So, my February makeup haul is purely made up of products that I’ve had on my “to try” list or are ones that I’ve tried in the past (and loved, of course).

January Beauty Haul: Jan Marini, Urban Decay, Bioderma and More…

January was all about recovering from Egyptian Sun burn, getting into healthier lifestyle, updating beauty products and embracing a few new ones. I’ve tried on and now using some new brands whilst stocking up on old favourites mostly on skincare and behind-the-scenes products- the ones you usually don’t get to see donning in photographs e.g; an eye primer and bath & body oil or make up brushes. So on that note, here’s what grab my attention and got me reaching for more in the first month of 2016.

January Beauty Haul: Metallic Tattoo, Eye Primer and Makeup Brushes
Metallic Tattoos from Asos, Look Good Feel Better Makeover Brust set from Feelunique, Bioderma Photoderm Ultra-fluide from Boots, Urban Decay Primer Potion Anti-ageing from House of Fraser, Isa Dora Tapered Brush from Feelunique and Jan Marini High Protection from Face the future

October Beauty Haul: Chanel, Sephora, Boscia and Becca Cosmetics

October was a good month for makeup, skincare and beauty haul and overall. I had the chance to wear make-up a lot, thanks to festival dressinng up. Since I don’t wear make-up every day at work, so it was great opportunity to play with different techniques and shades on my face. October is done and dusted now but I’m  embarassingly behind the schedule sharing my entire beauty haul of the month. I was overwhelmed with the response received (stats were booming!) when shared the first part of my October make-up haul here. Without much delay, here I’m, sharing the second part of this BIG wallet damage of last month.
