7 STEP SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR SUMMERS — CLINIQUE

Good morning lovelies! I’d like to start this post by giving out a big warm cozy bear Hug to every single one of you for all the love that I’m getting lately on my Instagram. I never imagined that girls would care about my opinions and the fact that we are 21k strong on Insta in just two years of knocking content, is surreal!

That said, let’s get down to business with today’s beauty post provoked by Dubai’s horrible heat! Following one of my favorite desi mom’s advice — i.e; not to play with products that go on your face, I play awfully safe during summers. NO winged eyeliners, NO cut crease, NO crazy brands & experiments and a complete NO to the whole contouring dilemma.

Just to give you an idea about my definition of ideal skin for summers:

Natural-Matte Finish: I’m so not a fan of dewy makeup looks, I love a matte face with quick arched eyebrows, a pop of color on lips and maybe a highlight.

Perfect blend: With combination skin type (Oily T-zone and Dry/flaky on cheeks & chins) I prefer a skin care regime with minimum items that suit perfectly my skin type and strikes a hydrating finish.

Quick & Long Lasting: Hustling around the busy streets of Dubai, I’m not the one with super long makeup routine, I need something that lasts from day to night with minimal to NO touch ups.

SPF anything: I learned it the hard way, but sunscreen is super important even for brown skin like mine, but most lotions are super tacky and silly. Hence, I spray ons.

So how do I achieve it?  My routine is limited to few items (in fact, just seven simple steps) and is stuck to only one brand – Clinique. (Another desi mum advice! You see, my mum loved this brand for years and as they say like mother like daughter!)

clinique dubai marina mall new store in uae review clinique haul best products from clinique review beauty blogger dubai rthijabstyles rahma talwar review (1)Step1: Wake Up Duty! Starting off my morning with their Sonic Deep Cleansing brush (Though this purchase was heavy on my pocket, it handles my black heads wonderfully and also stopped those terrible breakout sessions) and extra gentle cleansing foam. Lately, I’m loving foam cleansers, because they are perfect for dry skin yet doesn’t leave your face dehydrated.

Step2: Moisture Everything! I tend to have a love-hate relationship with mosituzers, hence, I favor moisturizing water based gel which hydrates my skin enough without being too tacky or sticky.

Step3: Natural MakeUp All the Way!  I am no makeup guru or anything but I know what I like. To me, I can spare extra money, on a long lasting full coverage – light weight foundations — Beyond Perfecting Foundation which doesn’t cause breakouts and clog my pores. Apply some mascara for dramatic eyelashes and a pop of color using Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm and I’m done for the day!

clinique dubai marina mall new store in uae review clinique haul best products from clinique review beauty blogger dubai rthijabstyles rahma talwar review (1)Step 4: Sun Protection! I realized the importance of SPF once I started driving and saw an insignificant shift in my skin color. This oil free SPF 30 Body Mist is perfect for those last minute “oops, I need to apply SPF” moments.

Step 5: Take it Off! Returning after a hectic day, all I want is to crash on my bed yet with little energy left in me, I head off to my washroom for an effective night time routine. To me,  a makeup remover should quickly remove all traces of waterproof makeup with few swipes. And I did notice, a little Clinique’s Take the day off remover goes very far one does the entire job using only one cotton pad.

Step6: Night Time Sleepy Time! A freshly cleaned face is all I crave for a peaceful sleep, plus a fixed night care routine actually tackles acne problems too. I match my cleansing brush with Clinique’s Anti blemish solution cleansing foam. Technically all anti-acne related treatments leave ur skin super dry so restrict its use to once a day.

You know those nights when suddenly a pimple shows up and an important meeting is scheduled next morning (you might feel crying!). I found a perfect solution – Clinique Clearing Gel, a spot treatment which does wonders and you see true results within a night.

Super happy that they finally opened up an independent store in Dubai Marina Mall! The price? Well as everything good, the prices are super high but a flawless skin needs a stable investment.

Cheers Dubai!

6 Reasons To Try This New Hotel In Ras Al Khaimah

Acacia hotel review ras al khaimah by lifestyle blogger rahma talwar rthijabstyles (2)Another Weekend, Another Staycation! Why not play #TouristInMyCity Again?

If you love water adventures have a taste for navigating through different cities, Acacia Hotel, RAK is the place to go! This swanky new 4-star hotel under Bin Majid Resorts & Properties has the most amazing deals for a perfect weekend this summer. Our trip was in celebration of my brother’s 25th birthday, so taking pictures took a back seat (poor blogger me!).

Our stay was an all inclusive package, which I highly recommended because at the entrance we were greeted by a big envelope filled with different coupons & discounts.

Check out time already? Bye Bye @binmajidhotelsandresorts ✨

A post shared by RAHMA | Blogger & Entrepreneur (@rthijabstyles) on

1. All inclusive drinks: You can pamper your self and enjoy your entire time with a glass in one hand. From Hot Beverages (Coffee & Tea) to Cold Fizzy Drinks & various type of Alcohols, we had access to all 24/7. Pretty Cool!

2. Water adventures: With an all inclusive deal, you not only get to enjoy Acacia’s outdoor pool but also receive Beach access, Water slides & go Kakking coupons to use in Bin Majid’s Resort property – Beach Hotel, 10 minutes away from the hotel.

3. Sheesha fans: Acacia’s outdoor pool is the ideal perfect spot for you to soak up the sun, sip on the free amazing cocktails all day long & appreciate your holiday with a sheesha pipe. Though the setting is perfect for Sheesha lovers, unfortunately, only 3 flavors of Sheesha might annoy some (including, my brother!)

4. No Fights over Remote: I dunno about you, but I always end up fighting over TV in hotels (Ironically, I prefer laptops to watch stuff at home!) It was a nice surprise that our room had two set of TVs yet somewhat weird that we couldn’t find a flat Iron (That’s such a huge disappointment for someone like me, who is so particular about her perfectly ironed hijabs)

5: Affordable prices: A relatively new addition to RAK, the hotel offers super inexpensive all inclusive deals for adults & kids. You can find some great ones on Cobone or Groupon starting from only AED 250.

6. Free WiFi: What makes me furious is when luxury hotels for the sake for “Free WIFI” offer super crappy slow speed ones in return for your personal information (Emails & Mobile No, where they bombard you with useless deals over the next few months). Thankfully, Acacia (was different) facilitates decent WiFi speed without any privacy interruptions.

Any Drawbacks? All our meals were set at Al Nakhla Restaurant and honestly, the food was nothing to rave about or had anything new & exciting. Again, the pastry selection at Garden Brew Cafe was boring & similar to the desserts offered for lunch buffet at Al Nakhla. However, we did come across a promising Japenese Restaurant – Okura in the basement which we may try on our next visit. Plus, Hamra Mall is just 10 minutes away so food was not a major issue for us.

Magical deep blue water of world’s largest aquarium #DAUZ

dubai-aquarium-and-underwater-zoo-with-rahma talwar rthijabstyles dauz dubai adventures my dubai lifestyle blogger uae blog top lifestyle (4)
Photo Credits: ClearTrip.ae
I always play the tourist card in Dubai, well duh! the city is full of wonders – Dubai doesn’t do small, it’s a place of extremes. This weekend I got the chance to experience the magical deep waters of world’s largest aquarium #DAUZ (Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo) located in world’s biggest shopping mall. Perhaps, it’s the city’s glitz and glam, superlatives, and passion of breaking records we love.
While shopping in Dubai Mall, I always enjoyed DAUZ from the outside. So there I was at the entrance ready to unveil the hidden secrets of this place with my Explorer Tag on  (120 Dhs per person) which includes an aquarium tour and boat ride too. Surprisingly, the tickets price was decent. And if you use the Entertainer App: Enjoy a one buy get one free deal on the Researcher tag (100 Dhs per person).
Oh yes, the guest of honor for the day was my mom who is my biggest fan since day one (love you, mom!) Well, all my reviews are a joint collection of experience as I always take serious notes of my partner’s opinion (you never know what they might point out!)
You start off on the ground floor, with a complete panoramic experience of the aquatic life (mark your first encounter with sharks) while walking through the mystic blue tunnel. A perfect place to snap an insta-worthy moment!
After the tunnel, we proceeded to Underwater Zoo, on Level 2 of Dubai Mall which has EVERYTHING! (I mean in terms of marine animals, they even had Nemo & Dory). This is the part which is hidden from the public eye and worth every penny you pay. Quickly we joined others in a queue to our special stimulator submarine experience which was basically a major disappointment for any adult. (you don’t wanna follow a random looking turtle into the sea on the screen).

dubai-aquarium-and-underwater-zoo-with-rahma-talwar-rthijabstyles-dauz-dubai-adventures-my-dubai-lifestyle-blogger-uae-blog-top-lifestyle-1.jpg

Unlocking more secrets of DAUZ,  we made our way to the glass bottom boat ride (your boomerang game goes strong here). Our super cute guide informed us with real facts & figures (who knew world’s largest aquarium contains 10 million liters of water with 33k aquatic animals, well I had no clue!). The ride was so fascinating,  I found myself giggling and going “Mom, look at this!” every few seconds.
May be my Aquarius star sign took a toll on me but I spent the entire day admiring each session of their underwater zoo (completely forgot about dinner) which is divided into three zones – Rainforest, Rocky Shore, and Living Ocean. Well, my information about aquatic animals was limited to penguins, dolphins, and Nemo, so you can only imagine my smile when I spotted water rats, sea horses, giant squids, Veiled Chameleon and our tiny friends – Neon Tetra, glass catfish, white cloud mountain minnow.

(Future husband, kindly note I may ask for a penguin on my birthday!)
Side Note: DAUZ did break my heart in one aspect, throughout the journey the photographers clicked us with random looking pose and asked us to collect them at the final counter. News flash! The photos cost double the ticket price, like are you kidding me? Not once, we were informed during the whole ‘say cheez’ extravaganza about the price (honestly, you do get a bit tempted but 300AED, No Never Nada!).
Overall,  we very much enjoyed our experience at #DAUZ (you know a place is amazing when it has a hashtag) and finally, something I can strike it off from my bucket list. For more details about their prices please visit http://www.thedubaiaquarium.com
PS: This is a collaboration that I did with Ewaan Properties. Having said that, everything that I stated here comes from personal stories. I am just a Small Town Girl joining the glitz & glam army of Dubai every now and then. Sharing my genuine opinion to help pick out your next adventure without revealing many secrets about the place.
Cheers Dubai!

I LOVE FRIDAY BRUNCH – CARNIVAL BY TRESIND

FRIDAY BRUNCH CARNIVAL TRESIND REVIEW DUBAI FOOD BLOGGERSo if I were to choose my favorite spots for Friday Brunch, I had to add Tresind to the top of the list. The whole molecular gastronomy concept is magically undertaken by plenty of restaurants in Dubai these days, but Carnival by Tresind takes the charm to the next level.

Earlier this month, they kick-started a Friday Brunch, which is more like a mega feast to the tiny little Rahma. Unlike, the regular Brunch, this was not a buffet, but a live foodilicious sorcery by the best in business.

Location & Staff: Over the years, I’ve been to some fancyish fine dining spots, but never have they welcomed us with extraordinary bubbles, ‘okay!! the inner child in me might be taking over’. But Tresind knows how to explicitly spoil their customers from head to toes. Now, I’m not so easy to be impressed, but the Staff, especially our attendant, was just a heartwarming treat, he took care of us from the start till the step out their doors.

Food: Honestly, one post wouldn’t be enough to justify, how enchanting & artistic the entire menu was, and that’s why I decided to vlog my entire experience. You really need a big appetite when it comes to tresind, because they have a master plan to make you eat the entire menu in one sitting, but you can be as lazy as you want. We started off at 1pm with a selection of bread and 4 kinds of butter and left at 5 pm only because we had a movie booked for later.

Apparently, Tresind doesn’t believe in a Drinks Menu, in fact, the only ask for your favorite fruits & what mood you are going for. It may seem weird but the experienced Drinks mixologist comes up with extremely amazing & refreshing drinks.

Truth be told, the never ending list of appetizers do leave you considerably full and when the actual main course arrive, you are staring blankly at the attendant. One thing, I’ve learned is, not to over eat any item, because the next best thing is around the corner. The Delhiite in me, just couldn’t get over the cold spicy Dahi Bhalla served with nitrogen power and the unique Waffle Dosa concept baffled me to my very core.

Hand’s down the entire menu is InstaWorthy,  at times, I had to make the tough call between clicking pictures and enjoying the flavors, without any regrets, I selected the latter.

As we went ahead to the main course, you get a palate cleanser, Strawberry Murabba, and another feast on your way. From family picnic box filled served in tiffin boxes to popular demand of Punjabi’s – Sarson Ka Saag Aur Makki Ki Roti, everything is a trip down my favorite childhood memories.

Lastly, to roll down the final curtains, they dropped a giant bomb, literally. A massive bomb filled with all types of chocolate goodness & peanut butter awesomeness. Bewildered by the entire menu, we bid our goodbyes, promising to return very soon with my whole family.

Verdict: Though my love for Friday Brunches has increased tremendously, I believe they are often overpriced since people like me aren’t cut off for buffets and regretting at dinner. However, as the entire menu is served personally to you, with a relevant gap of 10-15mins, your stomach gets a nice little break to digest after every course. I won’t mind paying the amount for a 5-hour lunch, yes you read it right, reach at the doors exactly at 12 to enjoy the most of the menu.

PRICES – AED 190++ PP without ALCOHOL
TIMINGS – Every Friday from 12 PM – 5 PM
CONTACT – 04 2759071. Table booking recommended
LOCATION – Podium Level, Burj Daman, DIFC, Dubai

January always feels like the chance to start fresh. Insert FASHION RESOLUTIONs

1.Indulge in Solid Colours

Over the year, I’ve bulked up my wardrobe with quirky patterns & fusion of vibrant colours. Instead, I wanna go crazy on colours like blush pink, caramel & rusty green.

2.Buy fewer things of better quality.

I’m all up for investing in strong statement pieces like Trench Coats, Ankle Booties or Vintage Purse which can stand alone or with a killer outfit.

3.NO to the Lazy Baboon zone

In 2017, I’m letting the Lazy bird go. You never know who you bump into a random shopping trip to the mall. So, I challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone & messy PJs and improve my Fashion Game on a daily basis.

Winter is always difficult on my skin, with the constantly changing weather, not only my health but also my dear skin takes a hit. So I often tend to lean towards organic & herbal products which are suitable for  all skin types during this season. Himalaya is one such herbal brand filled with nature’s beautiful Ayurveda secrets.

Today I’m going to share my top 5 best working Himalaya Herbals products which did wonders for my skin this season and you could get all this delivered right at your door step with souq.com

Himalaya Herbal Review Neem Mask, Neem Scrub, Revitalizing night cream, under eye cream and oil free lemon foam face wash from souq.com | UAE BEAUTY BLOGGER
Oil Control Lemon Foaming Face Wash: AEd 31

My skin is combination of dry and oil T zone, in general, oil free cleanser suits it perfectly all year round. This particular one had a very mild smell & did great in department of removing dirt, makeup build up and opening up pores.

Himalaya Herbal Review Neem Mask, Neem Scrub from souq.com | UAE BEAUTY BLOGGER
Purifying Neem Scrub & Mask: AED 31 Each

: Neem extracts always comes with massive Ayurvedic benefits and quite a strong scent. If you are able to ignore the fragrance, the combination of the scrub & mask is match made in heaven for home facial. The exfoliates in scrub does full justice of removing blackheads whereas the mask texture is quite liquidy and in all honesty stings a tad bit when applied on the cheek bones or the under eye area but the result is so good & glowing that I’m still using it on a weekly basis, ignoring the sensitive areas.

Under Eye Cream: AED 27

As a content creator & lifestyle blogger, my work demands me to be in front of a screen almost 10-12 hours a day. Though my sleep is limited to 5 hours a day, I’m graciously god gifted with non-panda eyes, without taking it for granted I’ve started caring more about my skin & especially my under eye area. I apply a pea size amount all over my eye area. For more effective & soothing results,  place the tube in refrigerator as cold cream hydrates & nurtures eyes all night long.

Revitalizing Night  Cream AED 34

During winters I’m constantly on a rush to get to office on time, leaving bed in mornings is one of the hardest tasks of all day. And the only skincare item I can mange to apply is a Water based moisturizing cream, so during my night time skin care regime I try my best to compensate my laziness in morning with a very hydrating facial cream and this gem from Himalaya fits into the picture perfectly.

VEET SENSITIVE TOUCH BEAUTY TRIMMER REVIEW

VEET sensitive touch beauty trimmer review | uae beauty blogget | pink tumblr | typo dubai | beauty flatlay | trimmer for ladies bikini, underarms and faceHello Beauty Stylers, <3

Hair removal is always a fuss, and a parlour visit for getting waxed is not my cup of tea. First of all, I’m highly allergic to any kind of wax treatment, so your concerned advice to stop shaving would go in vain. Secondly, the lazy girl in me likes to discover products which are effective, time saving and most importantly requires least efforts. Anyway onto the good stuff!

For a really long time now, I’ve been doing my own epilation at home and it works well for me. Recently, I got my hands on the latest launch by Veet – the Sensitive Touch Beauty Trimmer for Gentle Shaving and Precise Shaping for your Sensitive Body Parts like face, underarms & bikini, a pain-free, fast, easy, and you can do it yourself in the privacy of your own home solution !

The box contains:

  • Beauty Styler
  • 2-sided head for eyebrow shaping
  • Bikini trimming head
  • 2 Comb attachments
  • Styler cap
  • Cleaning brush
  • Beauty pouch
  • AA battery

The interchangeable heads are super easy to put together and simple to use, one for your eyebrows and other areas of your face and the other wide head is to get a precise trim on your underarms & bikini area. The Clip-Ons trimming comb gives you your desired length perfectly every time. The cutting teeth of this trimmer are rounded so it effectively trims off the hair without giving cuts or nicks.

VEET sensitive touch beauty trimmer review | uae beauty blogget | pink tumblr | typo dubai | beauty flatlay | trimmer for ladies bikini, underarms and face

Step 1: Trim

For desired eyebrow length just trim them! Use the small head and add the comb attachment. Place the device over your eyebrow and move it against the direction of hair growth.

Step 2: Shape

For perfect eyebrow contouring, remove the comb and use the high precision head. Touch skin lightly and push it across the eyebrow.

Step 3: Finish

You may choose to fill in your eyebrow by applying a small hatching pattern using an eyebrow pencil for the perfect finish.

Pros:

  1. No danger of cutting/nicking yourself, absolutely safe
  2. Hair does not grow back as thicker or harsher compared to normal shaving blades
  3. Cleaning is quick and easy
  4. Portable and battery operated, Travel-friendly & super light weighted
  5. Adjustable trimming heads for different need
  6. Great for quickly shaving off the short hair on toes & fingers too.

Cons:

  1. The price could be a con for some, but I feel it’s more like an investment – saves you so much time and money on waxing & threading!
  2. Makes huge noise while operating which can get annoying
  3. Need a lot of precision while using it on eyebrows for the perfect trim.
  4. Cannot be used in conjunction with shaving gel or foam.
  5. Not water resistant.

VEET sensitive touch beauty trimmer review | uae beauty blogget | pink tumblr | typo dubai | beauty flatlay | trimmer for ladies bikini, underarms and face | woojoh mirror | maybelline eye brow kit

My Verdict: The Veet Beauty Kit is personally kind of both a hit & miss for me, it’s definitely super convenient for travelling & easily makes a perfect home in your handbag. I’ve never actually done threading or waxing my eyebrows but I did use this gem between my eyebrows and to slightly trim off excess for a somewhat decent shape. The hair grows back between 10 to 12 days but not as harsh or darker. I also tried it on my mum’s upper lip but it is a little difficult to use it on someone else, it’s basically a self-handled device. I wouldn’t recommend to use it on your upper lips regularly but once in a blue moon is absolutely fine. Just ensure after trimming your upper lips, the next trip should be to a salon for a more professional wax or threading.

To my relief, there has been NO shaving rash after using this little trimmer on my face. You can also use the head for sideburns, neck or baby hair on your forehead, you can actually use this particular head at many areas including your toes and fingers.

But the real downfall was the wide head if you can’t use it with water or shaving gel, the whole thing goes down the drain. I did try it on both my underarms & bikini area but was left disappointed. It didn’t give me a close cut as I expected. However, for a quick fix in time of emergency, it does an okay to a decent job.

If you have any questions, comments or anything else, feel free to comment or drop me a message! For everything else, stay tuned to my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

You can find the Veet Sensitive Touch Beauty Trimmer at all the leading Stores across U.A.E  and online stores too. It is priced at AED 135 on souq.com

DUBAI HIJABI LOOKBOOK FOR SUMMERS

O.K so this is a post that has been waiting for a long time to be posted. On my recent Instagram post, many of you ladies wanted to see a modest lookbook for summer. So here is my successful merge in 7 different ways between style with modesty. I put this outfit together that would look great for a casual lunch date or even a night out. I’m usually into loud prints and bright colors so this is actually quite a big change for me.

Looking through this post, I hope you get inspired to try some of these outfits yourself. As summer is already saying a Bright & Sunny Hello to all in Dubai, my outfits would have more of pink, blues & white vibe throughout the post, but black is an essential for me in all seasons.
