Hello Everyone,

2017 is been a great year so far and also happens to be the special one since I started my Lifestyle blogging in March. During this year I came across many new brands for makeup, skincare, and hair. I had my likes and dislikes. But below are my favorite 17 products that I LOVE LOVE LOVE and would definitely keep using them forever.

1. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation

(Available at Sephora for 170AED)

2. NYX Total Control Drop Foundation

This is my everyday foundation since I can vary from sheer to full coverage finish. I like the soft velvety finish. I use the shade Vanilla. Although its bit light on my skin so I mix it with my other foundation. I definitely need to buy one shade darker. There are 24 shades to choose from. (Available at Lifestyle Shops for 69AED)

3. Huda Beauty Nude Love collection

Do you have acne-prone skin? And are you afraid to do any kind of facial or treatment on your face just like me? Then I guess your worries are over with the facial I recently got done at The Artist Beauty Lounge. Read below to know more.

Since I have acne on my face since two years now, I am afraid to use any new products apart from my tea tree products I use from The Bodyshop. But then when I went for my Olaplex treatment, my sweet friend Reshu Malhotra from The Artist Beauty Lounge recommended me to go with the Dermalogica Medi Bac facial at their salon. At first, I was very hesitant but then its been long time I didn’t get any facial I thought of trying it. Before I share my experience, I want to give you guys some information about Dermalogica.

The Artist Beauty Lounge is a certified Dermalogica beauty salon with certified Dermalogica skin therapists. Dermalogica is an American personal care company headquartered in Carson, California. Its product portfolio includes cleansers, exfoliants, toners, masques, eye treatments, and moisturizers, as well as an acne treatment line. Dermalogica is a product line free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts. All the Dermalogica skin treatments are designed based on each person’s skin; therefore each treatment is different.

On reaching the salon, I was greeted by the Therapist Rani, she was the one doing my facial. She also did my Olaplex treatment (read my previous blog for that experience) at The Artist Beauty Lounge. The staff at this salon is very friendly and always makes me feel at home. She gave me a Dermalogica Consultation Card to fill out the details about me and specific concerns I have about my skin. This helped her to understand my skin and my daily routine back better. Thereafter she took me to the facial room which was quite cozy and had a relaxing feel to it. Now, on to the treatment:

The treatment room

Dermalogica Products

1.  First, my face was thoroughly cleansed.  As what the therapist told me, they do double cleansing in Dermalogica. I personally love that since all the oil and dirt is removed.

2.  After cleansing was the face-mapping. This is where my skin was analyzed from the forehead up to the collarbone to identify my skin’s problems and needs.  I was told that I have a combination skin: dry on the cheeks, oily on the t-zone.  Also, she told me my skin was very dehydrated and I should start drinking double the quantity of water compared to what I drink now.

3. An enzymatic exfoliation serum was applied and massaged on my face followed by a facial brush.

4.  After the exfoliation, a serum was applied to my face.  According to the skin therapist, it is to aid in the extraction. Then my skin was generously steamed prior to the application of the extraction fluid.  I was literally trying to stop myself from dozing off, but laying there, with the relaxing music and the soothing hands of my therapist made it a lot harder for me.

5. Extraction time! Now, I’m sure this is the part that all of us dread the most in facials. C’mon, who wouldn’t hate the pricking and the scraping from that metal tool? The actual extraction took around 10-15 minutes. She removed lots of blackheads and whiteheads which were deep inside my skin. You might be thinking if that way of extraction can actually extract whiteheads and blackheads? Well, I doubted it at first too. But after my facial and the redness all gone, my pores look a lot cleaner most especially those on my nose area.

6. A post-extraction solution was applied on my face.

7. A purifying serum was applied all over my face and then massaged with a galvanic tool.

8. A purifying mask was placed on my face and then followed by a shoulder and arm massage. This was the best part of the facial. I really enjoyed the massage which was much needed.

9. After the mask was taken off, a toner was sprayed on my entire face followed by the application of a moisturizer and an eye cream.

The entire treatment lasted for almost 75mins.

Result: I just loved the way my skin felt post-treatment. The skin was soft a bit red but looked very clear. Those hidden whiteheads under my skin were all gone and there was no more bumpy surface. The next day the redness was gone and my skin felt healthy. Also, I started drinking lots of water now. Its been two weeks since the treatment, I haven’t noticed any bumps and my skin still looks fresh and hydrated.

Hello Everyone,

Want to get smooth and soft hair? Looking for insurance for your hair? Then go on reading.

I got my hair colored 5 months back and off late my hair started to feel very dry and frizzy due to the heat in Dubai. I usually don’t get any hair treatments done here in Dubai since I prefer India and the hair specialist there. But then I came across this Olaplex treatment at The Artist Beauty Lounge in Dubai. I immediately messaged Reshu who happens to be the Owner of this beautiful salon and cleared all my doubts regarding the treatment. After contemplating I finally booked an appointment and decided to go for it.

The Artist Beauty Lounge is a cute little salon located in Oud Metha. It’s a signature beauty lounge by Makeup Artist and Beauty Expert Reshu Malhotra.

Coming to the treatment, let me give you a bit of information. Olaplex is a simple three-step process, includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.

Olaplex is a three-part treatment, the first two of which have to be done in a salon. Nevilles, in the heart of the glossy Belgravia in London, was the first salon in the UK to stock it so now more than anyone its revolutionary qualities. Having color-damaged hair myself (a salon back in India once turned me away and refused to do my highlights because it was so bad – a real low point), I was intrigued to see if it lived up to the hype, so I popped into getting the almighty Olaplex.

It works in three steps, here’s how:

  1. Olaplex Number 1: This concentrated first salon step rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair. Bond Multiplier is used as a stand-alone treatment. It was put on my hair and kept for 10 minutes.
  2. Olaplex Number 2: The second salon step continues to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds ensuring the strongest, shiniest, and healthiest hair possible. Bond Perfector is then put on the hair and this is left on for a good 25 minutes to really get the most out of its chemical mending.
  3. Olaplex Number 3: Hair Perfector is where you take things into your own hands. The third step is a take home treatment, which is recommended to use once a week. Apply to damp hair, comb through, and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes at home before washing as normal. If you want to maximize the effect, leave it on overnight.


So the first and second step was done at the salon. Rani, the lady who did my treatment was very sweet and explained me all the steps before doing it. After the final wash and blow dry, I kid you not my hair became soooooo SOFT and silky. My hair felt genuinely smoother and looked far less frazzled than it did when I walked in. You can tell why they’re calling it insurance for your hair. I was really amazed by the way my hair turned out to be. Check out my picture below and see the difference.

This treatment is really worth doing it and it’s quietly affordable. It costs around 250 AED and the 3rd step is for 100AED for you to take it home. Reshu, the sweetest person also recommended me to repeat this treatment after a month in order to get the best results. It’s been two weeks I got this treatment done and I can’t stop touching my soft hair.
