My 2010 top 5 beauty/skincare must have's

These are my top 5 beauty must have's. 
in no particular order:


- Garnier Pure 3 in 1 wash, scrub and mask- this is the best face wash I have found especially for my skin. I have recommended it to lots of friends because I think it really works. Before I started using this I had lots of spots, but since using it I have found that my skin has really cleared up. I use this once a day first thing in the morning as a normal face wash. You can also use this as a 3 minute face mask once a week and its also ok for black heads if you have them. If you've been looking for an everyday face wash try this one and let me know how it is for you.


-Simple light hydrating moisturiser-  My skin gets really oily and looks horrible if I use any other cream other than this. Simple's light hydrating moisturiser doesn't feel oily once you've used it but does leave your skin feeling moisturised. If your skin is oil prone then give this moisturiser a go.


- Maybelline loose mineral powder- this foundation is great, find the right colour for your complexion,  it'll leave your skin looking radiant and airbrushed, best thing about it is that it looks and feels natural. I know foundation is not good for your skin and some foundations look really in your face. With this foundation people won't be able to tell your wearing foundation, its subtle and ok for everyday use as it doesn't make your skin feel clogged up. One thing to keep in mind is the colour, if you don't get the right colour it will look like you put talcum powder on your face (speaking from experience that's what happened to my cousin)


-Maxfactor Masterpiece Max- yes its the one featured in memoirs of a geisha. I watched the advert for this and it looked amazing, so I thought I'd give it a go. I was very skeptical when I bought it, but it does actually work. The mascara extends the look of your lashes and the great thing is it doesn't clump them together. There's not really much else I can say about this product other than I love it (=


-Johnson's baby lotion- last but not least comes the baby lotion, like I said I don't use any other face cream other than simple, but Johnson's baby lotion has featured in this because it's great for removing make up. At the end of the day when you want to take your make up off and don't want to have panda eyes, johnson's baby lotion. Put the lotion on some cotton wool or tissue and apply some lotion to your face, wipe away as you would do with a face wipe and voila make off without a fuss.


So that was my top 5 beauty must have's, I hope the review has helped if you were thinking about trying some of these things. Try it out and let me know how you go.


Salaam for now!

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there.
