L’Occitane June Beauty Box

1

So, I started waiting for this box at the end of every month waiting to see what’s new and what to try and enjoy. This month it included 2 new items, not in the store but in the beauty box. A body scrub and a Shea butter cream.

I have to tell you that I really really loved the scrub. Leaves your body soft and moisturized with a beautiful light scent of freshness and cleanness. It’s easy to use and I’m replacing it with body scrubs as it cleans better.

The Shea butter is very different from other creams. This one is very thick and heavy but light on the skin and gives your it a glowy soft look and texture. I love looking at my hands after applying the Shea butter on them. And it stays for long hours. You don’t need to apply cream every now and then to keep your body moisturized.

The box also included a hand cream as always and a lavender soup which I’m using on daily basis now for my hands. Beautiful items for this month. Thank you L’occitane.

Brand New Nivea Body Lotion

2

I’ve received a box of Nivea goodies to try their new products. To be honest most of the goods inside the box are the same haven’t changed except for the fairness body lotion with raspberry essence, this was new to me and i immediately tried because I love anything that has raspberry in it.

The smell was sooo good and the texture of the lotion was perfect. As of its effectiveness, I can’t tell you about that because I have to use it everyday and i actually don’t use the same lotion everyday. I change from lotion to lotion.

L’Occitane Launches New Fragrances @The_Avenues

1

Last week, L’Occitane held an event to introduce the new 4 fragrances that have been launched on that day.

Full of colors, flowers & summer is what I can say about this new collection. Vanilla, Magnolia, Green Tea & Jasmin create La Collection de Grasse. Each essence has a variety of products; hand cream, soap, moisturizer, perfume etc. My favorite was the Magnolia & Vanilla, very beautiful and hot.

In the store, we were introduced to the collection and also we were given a mini test to see which fragrance suits our personality more. My sister did the test because I was busy with the camera and Juju :P and not to mention it was full house mashallah.

The talented artist Nawaf Alshemmari was also there drawing life for the audience (picture above). Amazing job wallah!

Once my sister knew what fragrance suits her, she was surprised to know that she already has it :P and me too! (see picture down).

Thank you Shayma Bakhsh for the lovely event and more to come nshallah :)

L’Occitane May’s Beauty Box

1

Just as the previous month (read here), I’ve received from L’Occitane Kuwait May’s beauty box.

Now, this month, it’s floral, summery & full of freshness & vividness. I liked the colors of the bottles before even opening them or smelling the scent. And when I did smelled them, I felt as if I was in a garden. It takes to another place, a gazebo surrounded with blossomed flowers & the fresh breeze bringing the smell of those flowers to you.

I loved the Pivoine Shimmering Oil. It’s not sticky at all & it gives you this beautiful shimmer. Good for parties or girls’ gatherings ;) Also shower jelly (Yup jelly not Gel) & body milk are very good. The body milk doesn’t make your skin sticky at all & it keeps your skin hydrated for few hrs. Also the smell stays for a while even when you wash your hands with water, you can still smell the scent on your skin. Ofcourse their hand creams are very popular, I don’t have to tell you about them, or do I? :P

The perfume is amazing, very light & summery.

Thank you L’occitane for May’s beautiful beauty box :D Loved it

P.S. I loved this month’s beauty box more than April’s ;)

Labello New Lip Butters

1

I received a small box from Dubai that has the new Labello lip butters that come in 3 flavors (Original, Raspberry & Vannila & Macadamia). I preferred the raspberry, the smell was beautiful. My husband took the original & liked it too. It doesn’t color your lips at all, and it’s very light, which is good for our extremely hot weather in summer.

Original

“Contains Hydra IQ, Shea Butter and Almond Oil. The indulging Lip Butter formula pampers lips and relieves dry, chapped lips. It seals in moisture in your lips long- lastingly and leaves the sensitive skin of the lips well protected against the external influences.”

Raspberry Rose

“The big innovation for the Lip Butters: real Raspberry aromas in the formula provide authentic flavor and fragrance experience. The interaction of smell, taste and the touch of the lips indulges all senses.”

Vanilla & Macadamia

“The big innovation for the Lip Butters: real Vanilla and Macadamia aromas in the formula provide authentic flavor and fragrance experience. The interaction of smell, taste and the touch of the lips indulges all senses.”

Oh and the box also has 3 macaroons which are very delicious YUM YUM

L’Occitane April’s Beauty Box

1

I received April’s Beauty Box from L’Occitane to try the Almond Set to try & review. Now let’s see what’s inside my beauty box?

Almond Milk Concentrate: “Rich in almond oil & almond milk, this body cream nourishes and softens the skin. The blend of silicium and almond proteins, which are similar to collagen, effectively fights skin slackening by restoring skin’s support tissue.”

Almond Supple Skin Oil:”This body oil fights dry skin & lack of firmness. Concentrated in almond oil, rich in omega-6, and cameline oil, rich in omega-3. It helps to repair the hydro-lipidic barrierfor a more supple skin that no longer feels tight.”

Almond Shower Gel: “Enriched with almond oil. Leaves a subtle mouth watering scent of fresh almond for a delightful skin.”

Almond Soup: “Floral fragrance of almond blossoms and contains crushed almond shells to gently exfoliate the skin.”

Almond Slimmer Massager: “A massage accessory that stimulates microcirculation, ensures that the active ingredients penetrate the skin well in order to enhance and extend the effectiveness of the treatments.”

I’ve quoted for you what each product is supposed to do or achieve after a period of time. I’ve tried the products for 3 days now & here’s what I can say about few of them, others will definitely take time

Project X-Bloggers’ Cooking Competition

Today Project X started, 6 teams competed. 3 only qualified, too bad we weren’t among them, but we had lots of fun, enjoyed the cooking part with the secret ingredient, meeting the judges & getting their advices regarding each dish & the lovely team who helped us all time.

Round 1 was kinda easier than round 2. Round 1’s Secret Ingredient was Mango. So we went with Chicken Salad with Mango & Raspberry sauce. Round 2’s Secret Ingredient was Blue Cheese which was very difficult to use it as a main ingredient but we managed. Another secret ingredient came after 20 minutes from the start of the 2nd round & it was honey. Our dish was Grilled Shrimp with Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce, Steamed Rice with kefir & coconut & Green Salad as a side dish. I liked the 2nd dish more than the 1st one.

6 hours of cooking, it was really exhausting … but fun :D

Even though we didn’t qualify for the finale, we had fun & won some gifts. There were no losers :D

Thank you guys for a wonderful evening!
