A GLAMBOX SITUATION

Hi dears!

Today is 5th of April and my security – concierge – smiley guy that helps me with doors and bags when super loaded, tells me with a smirk.- Miss, I have something for you.- I am subscribed to tons of magazines so I thought it was that. But noooo, this month I received my first Glambox at home!! I was so excited I couldn’t wait to be up in the apartment.

This concept is amazing, it is like any other subscription but you get instead beauty products.. all of them fantastic and glamorous. How I got to know about this treat? Last month’s Glambox was an exclusivity with Nivea and I LUV Nivea, so they called me for a short video. Check it here, love, like and share as much as you can.

It was fun, fun, fun.. and it is that I learnt all details about Glambox. You pay between 71 and 80 Dhs per month depending on the package you choose and once a month you get your Glambox delivered at your doorstep. I love to receive stuff and this feels like someone is reading your mind and putting all together in a pinky package for you.

Check out what comes in this April’s Glambox.. I did a funky video with all of them on Instagram .. Lol.

  • 2 sachets of Herbline Essentials- with Aloe vera and Honey Hydra 5 gel.
  • 2 products of Caudalie- one day perfecting fluid cream with SPF15 and other hand and nail cream with antioxidants.
  • 1 palette of Inglot – silver colour!- Glam, Glam, Glam- with a mirror and a cute brush.
  • 1 big brush from Glambox – they have all the set available on the Glambox shop. 😉
  • 1 Sunscreen SPF30 from Hawaiian Tropic.
  • 1 Dove Body Cream with shea butter and vanilla.

Just this weekend I got to go to the beach on Friday and to the pool on Saturday.. What do I need? Sunscreen!! My Nivea sunspray is about to be finished so.. tachan! When that happens I will start the Hawaiian Tropic. I looooove the smell! It takes me back to my days in Jamaica.. Nostalgia is so bad!!

Dove and I have been in love for already a number of years ( too many to count!) as I worked in the PR agency that started them in Spain (my best regards to the amazing team of Burson Marsteller now spread all over the world, muac.. love you guys!).  At that time we were testing the waters, trying to educate the population in the concept.. We would ask, ..What would you think if I tell you that you can have a moisturizer and a shower gel all in one without feeling greasy and actually cleaning? Same with the shampoo and moisturizer.. People couldn’t believe it initially. That account was fun, we did amazing stuff!. 🙂

I loved the product from day one and now I use most of the range -I need to mention the Dove hair fall rescue… blessings to whoever brought it up!!. Simone Heng helped me restock it as she is brand ambassador here in Dubai and adding to the fact that she is a great blogger, she is a super down to earth lovely person. Check her blog if you have a minute.

Herbline, Caudalie and Inglot are new to me but I will be testing them and sharing with you my thoughts.

The Glambox came also with some very cool vouchers:

  • Nstyle Voucher for a polish change.
  • A gift voucher of 500 Dhs from Wellbeing Medical Centre for a laser treatment or and Ultrasound cavitation treatment.

See my happy face.. I am going to try them all!! Nstyle I can already recommend and will you believe it!.. Just this week I was in Wellbeing Medical.. not for laser or cavitation but to get my neck fixed. Dr Gary Fitzgerald is my osteopath and my neck has this bad habit of getting stiff – I call it jiraffitis, doctors call it torticulis. So when you go, if you see him, say hi from me!

Luv,

Lil

OH! WHAT A BLISS!

Is it me or lately I feel like I am running from point A to B like crazy? At the office, there is quite a lot of work but I rather be busy than bored. I am the kind of person that needs to be motivated, always on the go, learning and doing new things.. Thank God my job gives all of that and also I have this little corner on the internet where I can release my mental wanderings for your entertainment and my astonishment.

This time I am going to share with you my experience with some Bliss products I got as samples to try at an event in Icons Coffee Couture. I love the cute little size of samples and this weekend I thought.. time to try them!

WWW.WHATIJUSTLOVE.COM

I started with the Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask ( what a long name for such a cute little thing! My suggestion to Marketing Tri-O2 Instant Energizing Mask). You have to apply it with damp skin and massage slightly. A froth will start coming out and it is such an amazing feeling, like bubbles massaging the skin.. I definitely liked it!. I tingles (in a postivie way) and has a lovely orangy smell.

After you have enjoyed the oxygen-froth feeling, you must remove it and you can apply the other product from Bliss.. The Triple Oxygen + C Energizing Cream. It has a similar smell as the mask, just lighter and it is quickly absorbed. My skin after the entire week of make up and dryness was very grateful I guess, because now it feels very nice and smooth.

I still have another Bliss product to try.. The Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. I will keep you posted about how it goes with that one!

I hope you enjoyed the review. Please share your comments and dont forget to like and share in social media.. Sharing is caring!

WHAT I JUST LOVE.. A GOOD TIME WITH MY NEW SISTERS AT SISTERS.

Yesterday, it was fun.. We hold our first Meet up for the Dubai Fashion & Lifestyle Bloggers Community, a new Meet up Shaheen and me have been putting together for the last few weeks. Could you believe there was not such a community, association or group for bloggers with fashion or lifestyle as main topic in Dubai?..(Hellooo, I insist .. in Dubai!).

I guess Dubai itself it is a bit like that, so fast paced, everybody minding their own business. A bloggers set of mind requires some time and space to research, write, go to events, take pics, and work on the unique content we always want to offer,.. and it feels a bit lonely sometimes. When we met we both felt the gap right there and eventually she started the meet up and I volunteer to assist her.

The Meet up took place at the Sisters Beauty Lounge in The Village Mall (Jumeirah area). The saloon has a very nice atmosphere and has a separate area for nails (manis and pedis), another for hair treatments, another section for facials, waxing and massage and even a very cute Kerastase bar with a russian lady that knows a whole lot about all the Kerastase products and what goes well to what type of hair. I am going to follow her advise on a few tips. Since I arrived to Dubai my hair is in serious misshape and I tried so many things with not always the expected results, I am still looking for the right product, the right hairdresser, the right treatment..

All paying attention to the explanation of the hair expert @ Sisters saloon.

The branch manager of Sisters showed us their premises, provided all the attendees with drinks and small tapas and offered us a bag with goodies and samples to test and a free mani or pedi (gorgeous coral toes- Thanks Michelle!). It was 10 of us so we got them busy for a while.The bloggers sisterhood at the Sisters saloon.

I am so glad to be part of this Meet up. The attendees were all amazing and had lots of ideas to improve and make the group really thrive. Everything is about helping each other, learning, developing relationships with one another, with the press, with the brands, growing personally and “blogger-ssionally”. (if where you missing my leliquistani.. there you go!). ;). I loved the energy and the camaraderie between all of us.

Let me introduce you some of the blogs of my fellow DF&L Bloggers. If you have a minute check them out. We are all in a path to self improvement and we love to have your feedback, so please comment, engage, like, share..
