TERRA BELLA BOX 2016

TERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXTERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXTERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXWith so many beauty products going onto my skin constantly for reviews, it was high time to invest in some Natural skincare gems. That’s when I discovered TERRA BELLA BOX, a subscription service that sends you 3-4 natural beauty & bath products each month to your doorstep for $32.95, which includes free shipping in the U.S.

Every box helps to support local small businesses which use cruelty-free ingredients and develop ethical products. In this Green Box of Glow, you’ll receive cleansers, moisturisers, masks, exfoliators, hand and nail products, hair products, bath products and such.

TERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXOnce you upon the box you get an info card with each product description & retail price.

Klen Shower Steamer in Happy ($3.99) With constant travelling because of my two jobs, I hardly get any time for a bath or to use my beloved Lush bath bombs. For a little pampering session, a shower streamer is the best choice. Just pop this little guy on the tub floor, with a few drop of water and let the magic begin. Your whole washroom will be filled with Jasmine fragrances with few seconds.

 TERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOX meraki-botanicals-rose-lemongrass-toning-mist-reviewMeraki Botanicals Rose Lemongrass Toning Mist ($20) – Ever since I got this beauty, I have never left home without it. Everything about this toner from the fragrance to the ingredient combination refreshes your mind & soul in this hot summery weather of Dubai. It is great for spritzing in the middle of the day for a cool, calm effect.

TERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXWoolin & Co. Handcrafted Soap in Ylang Ylang & Geranium ($7) – Who doesn’t love some floral scented natural soap on their vanity right? I have included this gem in my Eid Giveaway, enter here to win the gift hamper.

TERRA BELLA BOX MAY 2016 WORLDWIDE BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXPurelygreat Lavender Cream Deodorant ($15) – Using a spatula or my fingers to apply deodorant does creep me out majorly but does the job right!! The Jasmine fragrance does last forever, a great natural alternative.

Orglamix Blacquer Shadow & Liner ($18) – Though it is a 3-in-1 cream, I only use this multi-pearl formula on the outer corner of my eyes for a natural smokey look. Coconut oil makes it too creamy for my oily eyelids and as an eyeliner, it’s staying power is very limited.

Orglamix Eco Chic Bent Eyeliner Makeup Brush ($7.50) – I always wanted to test out a curved eyeliner brush, it does take some practice to get that perfect wing but it’s not impossible.

The overall value of the box is approximately 70$, it’s a great gift for someone who is just getting into a vegan lifestyle or opting to use only natural skin care.

GlamBox January 2016 reviewMaxon Hydramax Cream, Cleansing Tonic, and Foaming Gel: I’m Bioderma girl when it comes to makeup remover but Hydramax Cleansing tonic is surely in the right footsteps to give Bioderma a tough competition.

  • Hydramax Cleansing Tonic 180ml: 65 AED
  • Hydramax Foaming Gel 200ml: 75 AED

Delicca Powder Face wash: Trying out new brands with creative products I never heard about, that’s what Glam box means to me. For all my Oily skin ladies this is a must have, it leaves your skin oil free for a long time while retaining a soft, smooth and refreshing finish. 40ml: 17 AED

DMGM Smoky Desire Eyeliner: Black eye pencil is always a great staple piece to carry around your purse. Is this my favorite? Not really not even close to my top 10.  AED 20

GLAMBOX | DECEMBER 2015

Glam Box DecemberGlam Box DecemberA beautiful year is about to end on a very happy note, all thanks to this month’s GlamBox, Unlike. last previous boxes, this month’s Glam box was on point and delivered extremely well to my expectations. Though, the surprise was busted when Glambox announced the items way ahead of its time, the discount vouchers were the show stealer for me.

For starters, I received my box on time at the correct address, so kudos to Glambox and finally I got my Body Shop item pending from last month – Oils of life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil !!

Without further ado, check out the contents for Decembers which were profoundly my favorites.

Glam Box December

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip: These babies were absolute magic, I can’t stress how well they do their job. Will I buy them? Hell yea, these gems are No.1 on my shopping list.

FreshLook One-Day Contact Lens Gray: To be honest, getting something in my eye is a nightmare for me, so I’m a tad bit skeptical about if I should even try these.

Misa Nail Lacquer- 237 its you: Again I’m not a fan of nail polish, so I would surely pass this one to a friend.

Shea Butter DXB: Firstly, this 100% pure organic butter directly shipped from Africa is deeply nourishing and moisturizing. Oh but the smelling the butter is an awful and extremely obnoxious experience ever. So this one goes directly into my foot massage kitty.

Abeeco Bee Venom Mask: As many of you know, face masks are kinda my weakness, so Glambox surely got some brownie points for including this Mask/Night cream.

Loccaitane Extra Gentle Soap with Shea Butter: No one I know has ever complaints about this particular brand so adding a pure vegetable soap was such a Winner for an organic beauty product enthusiast like me.  In fact, it smells like lemongrass, one of my fav scents ever.

Parachute Gold Thick & Strong Coconut Hair Oil: Hands down, I had a quick visit back to their childhood, when all I did was cry getting that painful hair oil massage with Parachute. Though I hate the smell, but this oil is the best treatment for your damaged hair.

Body Shop  Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil: You may call me an impulsive buyer but I had that heart touching moment when you come across a product and you instant know that’s what I was looking for all these years – QUITE DRAMATIC!!! Honestly, that was my reaction the 1st time I applied this oil onto my face and today I’m a proud owner of BodyShops Oils of Life 30ml bottle priced @ 175 AED.

GlamBox November 2015 : Horrible Experience

2015113020595309
Hope you lovelies had a great weekend!

Subscription boxes are my favorite thing in the world, like come on a bundle of joy packed and delivered at your door is perfect to the ‘T’ for pampering yourself. From the past 3 months, I have been looking forward to the opening a ravishing pink box of surprises. Though, it may not have reached up to the mark, I was always had a happy go lucky feeling towards GlamBox !!

But last weekend, my pink box of wonder turned into a delayed package of terror & sorrow !! “DRAMATIC MUSIC PLEASE”. When Glambox released the sneak peek of this month’s box I had dual feelings. The whole surprise aspect was gone ‘Bummer’, but no complaints Body shop & Bioderma products made me go bananas !! So how it turned into a nightmare?

Basically, a closer look on the sneak peak made me realize one of the product had jasmine and I informed Glambox I’m allergic to the smell and asked them not to send me anything with Jasmine contents. Secondly, I changed my delivery address and contact number on the site and again as a good customer also informed them via email two weeks before.

So what’s the result you may ask? My delivery got delayed by almost 5 days and both Glambox and the courier company kept blaming one another. Okay so now I get to the most amazing part, revealing the contents. and another bummer no product from Body Shop, you can imagine how devastated I could be !!

So one of the staff calls me after my missing item email, so what they say is hilarious that they mistook my words regarding my allergy and did not add any Body Shop product though she apologizes and ensures me they will add a sample in my next box.

20151130-987598925However, many of you would like to know what’s in this month’s box so here it goes:

Hydrabio Perfector SPF 30 by Bioderma (40ml): I just love the Pump-Tube-Pompe thing going on, the product gives high protection against UV rays and dehydration. I use it as a mositurizer+ primer in the mornings these days, but the consistency is too thick and not super blendable.

20151130-504477089

Hydrabio Serum, Perfecteur and Creme (5ml) by Bioderma: To be honest, I had my eyes set on the Serum, as last month I already received Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face Lotion. The serum is just divine, so soothing and relaxing, I basically envy every single one who got the full-size Serum.

Dadi’ Oil 95% Certified Organic Nail Treatment (3.75ml): A mixture of Avacado, Olive, and Jojoba oil makes this such a treat for your cuticles. Plus, the warm exotic combination of Lavender, Lemongrass & Vanilla takes you to a different world. All I want for my birthday a candle of this smell. “Best Friends please note”

Rasasi Lamaat Musk Tabriz & Jazeebiyat Musk Tabriz (1ml each): If you are a fan of Arabic fragrance, you just have to try these out. These not too overpowering unisex scents are musky & tantalizing. Do give them a try.

Either one of Body Shop Aleo Soothing Toner – Oils of life – Jasmine Body Shower Gel. 

Discount Vouchers

  • 20% discount on Body Shop Skincare Product
  • 10% discount on Rasasi outlets
  • Gift voucher from Eternel Clinic
  • Free skin analysis by Bioderma Skincare expert.
  • A chance to win 3-month subscription from GlamBox

Final Verdict: This month’s box was a true gem and definitely an answer to all our complaints and I’m sure every one of you would have loved it. It was my pure bad luck with all misunderstandings. However, Kudos to GlamBox for the 20% discount on Body Shop !!

THE BEAUTY FLOOR HAUL + GIVEAWAY

20151125-1376726927 (1)
20151125229175133

Once you commit sincerely to your blog, the epiphany of how valuable & time saving online shopping can be, knocks your door really hard !! Online Stores are an alter-dimension created primarily to relieve stress, where I have been dropping by way more than I should. Guilty as charged !!

An online store stands out for me only when its hooks you up with an exclusive range of product, excellent customer service & a self-satisfying loyalty program. And that is why “The Beauty floor” has crawled up to the top of my favorite online destinations. Offering products from an elite group of international brands was such a turn on for a skin care junkie like me. I was super fascinated to see some International brands like Murad, Urban Veda, John Masters Organics & Dermalogica on their site. Recently, they also added brands like Zoella & Konjac Sponge to their existing list of pure awesomeness. Besides, their categorization of products based on ‘treatment’ is such a time saver. From Hair fall to itchy scalps, acne to dry skin, people at beauty floor gave me a solution to all my problems in a jiffy.

Another impressive feature of ‘The Beauty floor’ was their uncanny amalgamation between makeup & nail paints, skin & hair care and pet care on a single platform. Yes, my lazy girls you read it right, now while shopping for yourself, you can easily add a special treat for your precious cat & dogs.

Their make-up collection was not on the mark for me, I have seen way better-diversified ranges. But the skin care & hair care solutions have won my heart over. Also, if you are someone who loves nail paints, the beauty floor is your stop, the colors are so fascinating and ready for all occasions. Without further ado, I give you my massive haul from The Beauty floor:

201511251482637976

Kerastase Dermo-Calm Serum Sensidote – AED 110
Urban Veda Purifying Body Scrub – AED 85, Urban Veda Purifying Body Wash – AED 75
John Masters Moroccan Clay Purifying Mask – AED 110
John Masters Jojoba & Ginseng Exfoliating Face Cleanser – AED 99
John Masters Lavender, Rose Geranium & Ylang Soap – AED 29
CHI Infra Treatment – AED 19

To be very honest, I was pretty skeptical when ordering the John Masters Jojoba & Ginseng Exfoliating Face Cleanser and Kerastase Dermo-Calm Serum Sensidote, as both were glass bottled. However, when I opened my box, I was so pleased to see all the products were bubble wrapped, a rare sight from any on my online deliveries. Also, they added few samples from Dermalogica, Ren and Revitalash (which costs around 500 AED on the site)

Lastly, when you register with The Beauty Floor you automatically become a part of The Beauty Club rewards program. With every Dirham you spend with us, you will automatically earn points. Also, you get 50 points for each product review you place on their site.
