Review | First impressions of Pure Halal Beauty

Assalaamu alaikum sisters!

So what's this new company all about? Well they sell looooads of Makeup & skin care products everything from moisturisers and cleansers to foundations and eyeliners. The unique thing about this company is that everything they sell is 100% natural! It's all 100% Alcohol free, 100% Animal free and best of all 100% Ethical. I'm always wary of using too many products on my face so when I hear about a brand which is everything natural I'm excited to try them out usually without a worry.

The company is based in Birmingham (Pavillion) so you lucky Brummy sisters have this amazing (sort of halaal body shop) at your doorstep =D

I received some products to review just for you (yes, you lucky bumblebees) so here is part one of that review.

I was given a set from their Soothe & balance range which was specially designed for oily skin as my skin does get quite oily, I was actually on the look out for something to keep the shinyness at bay through the day and this could just be it. I haven't used any of the products on my face yet so this review is just what my first impressions are.

So they all came wrapped separately in bubble wrap and then wrapped again together in bubble wrap, perfect condition, no leaks or dents etc. I absolutely LOVE the packaging (which btw are RECYLABLE!!!) it's so sleek and 'expensive looking' I love them, these are the kind of things you could give as presents to people even if they're not going to use them they'd still look pretty amazing on their shelf. Speaking of gifts, you can get gift sets of products like these (there are different ranges for different types of skin).

Delivery was very fast as they were posted out earlier this week and came in a couple of days. The customer service is also impeccable, all of my e-mails were replied to promptly and in detail.

Now on to the products....

First of all the cleanser (the tall bottle with a pump)

It contains Chammomile & Seabuckthorn & Lavender which help to soothe, repair and calm skin whilst cleansing skin of impurities. Lavender Balances oil levels and rids the skin of bacteria.

Chammomile contains Azulene which reduces inflammation and strengthens the skin to help reduce redness.

Combined with healing effects of seabuckthorn these ingredients promote tissue regeneration to reduce scarring.

You use it by wetting face & hands with warm water and then using the cleanser to clean the pores and then washing it off with warm water and finish by rinsing your face with cool water to close the pores.

Second product is the face mask which you should use twice a week for best results. It contains Kaolin clay and Tea tree. The clay draws out dirt , impurities and toxins from the skin . Tea tree kills bacteria and reduces inflammation whilst stimulating skins natural repair process to reduce scarring.

To use this you should apply a small amount of face mask to clean dry skin after cleansing & toning. Spread all over your face and leave for 15 mins, then gently wash it away.

Last but not least is the face cream contains English Lavender which will soothe and repai skin whilst Egyptian Geranium will help balance oil levels and condition your skin.

All of this is written on the back of each jar/bottle, which is super because I like to know what's going on my face and what the benefits of it are.

I think all of the products in this range will be especially good for people with acne and other skin problems due to it's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients, they also contain ingredients which balance the level of oils in your skin so that should prevent your skin becoming oily and producing spots.

I'm in love with the concept of this whole brand and if these products work for me I will inshaAllah be buying more.

Part 2 of this review will be up soon inshaAllah and I will also be interviewing the sister who started this brand (she is only 20!!) so if you guys have any questions for her leave them below and I will try get em answered for you

Till next time Ma'salaama!

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

Beauty Review | FW Beauty Skincare

I finally got around to writing up this much requested post on the products I bought from FWBeauty, the reason I haven't written something sooner is because I believe it's important to be using a skincare product for a while before reviewing it, as most skincare products don't give significant results after just one or two uses. I've been following the founders of FW Beauty Fatiha and Yasmine's journey online for a while now and I love seeing how successful they are becoming. They talk about their products with so much passion and confidence that I had to meet them in person and try out their skincare products. If you've been following me on Instagram you'll know that I attended the Muslim Lifestyle Show a few weeks ago and picked up the FW Beauty skincare products that I've been dying to try ever since I saw the glowing reviews. They had everything at a reduced price and I picked up the clear complexion bar, the gold elixir brightening facial

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. At the moment the number of 'online hijab companies' have been growing and there are sooo many companies selling the exact same scarves & accessories claiming to be unique. If you want to be successful think up something different or take a unique angle on the hijab business idea. Brainstorm, pilot your ideas, find out what really
