Simply Sensitive & Botanics by Boots

Having sensitive skin that becomes irritated by simply anything that comes into contact with is not a good thing. Very hot weather in summer and dry cold winter , makeup, perfumed creams and lotions and a bunch more reasons.

I stopped buying expensive care products long time ago because they did nothing but take my money . 

Drug store items seems to be very underrated. The two items I cannot live without now are simply from Boots, they suit my skin and I do not think of changing to any another brand.

The first is the Simply Sensitive Cleansing Wash Gel, a daily facial wash with Aloe Vera. It has no perfume to irritate my skin and it gives a very nice and refreshing feeling afterwards.

The second is Botanics Radiant Youth Microdermabrasion Polish has a very gentle scrub like texture. I use it once every four days and gives the skin a very smooth and silky feeling.

Mansur Gavriel VS Zara

Bucket bags are all the rage for a while now. Mansur Gavriel became famous for making an IT bucket bag the celebrates love. many brands later introduced their own versions of bucket bags, but non became as popular as the one made by Mansur Gavriel. 

The Mansur Gavriel bag is not on the pricey side for many, but still zara managed to make a similar design for just KD15 and is in stores now.

Zara VS Valentino

Checkout these Zara shoes for only KD15.They look like the new ''Love Latch'' by Valentino that retails for Abt KD280. 

Personally I  would go for the Zara pair simply just for those tiny spikes that run on the middle strap, they give it a nice fierce look.

The Balm Balmsai Eyeshadow palette آي شادو ذا بالم الجديد

Every now and then I get obsessed with beauty products. Currently I'm addicted to eyeshadow palettes. Lately I've been using nude eyeshadows like Naked one and three palettes. I love nudes especially pink nudes because I often apply winged eyeliner or a coloured eye pencil. I heard a lot about the Balm eyeshadow palettes and many recommend Meet Matt Nude but I honestly like shimmery eyeshadows more so I'm thinking of getting the Balmsai palette.

The palette includes both matte and shimmery colours in addition to eye brows shaping stencils. I'm loving the range of colours as it can be used for both mornings and evenings. Here's a closer look.
