Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser [Review]


How many of you cleanse and moisturize your skin regularly? 
Making a skin care regime and religiously following it should be a top priority for everyone especially if you live in a polluted city, wear make-up, have acne, or any kind of skin problems or a combination of all these things, a good cleansing routine is important. 

Recently I was sent a sample of "The Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser" from Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare, the British Brand that has won many awards such as the Best British Brand Award for their outstanding quality. I've been using it regularly for about two weeks now and today I'm going to share my views on it with you.

The Hunger Games Trilogy..Books and the Upcoming Movies!


Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with every one out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? 

Fiction is something I love reading/watching, I think we have more than enough of our share of reality in our lives! Hence today's post is about a Book Trilogy called "The Hunger Games", written by Suzanne Collins. The genre is science fiction/young adult/adventure/dystopian. I'm sure most of you must have heard about it, or read the books, the trilogy is being made into films, the first part is to be released next year.

0 Ivory, My shade in Luscious Foundation Stick [Review+Photos]


A perfect base is very essential for flawless make up and YOUR ideal foundation is one that disappears on your skin when you apply it because testing a foundation is possibly the toughest part. I mean finding your exact match is kind of tricky. To get an idea of the foundation shade whether it matches your skin tone or not, you can test it on the back of your hand,your wrist or your jaw liner and choose the tone closest to your skin tone according to the coverage you require.

Today I bring you the Luscious Foundation Stick that was recently launched; around Eid-ul-Fitr this year I think!
