Beauty Haul || Skincare, Haircare & Makeup

Hello, my NBAM family,
Hope all of you are doing well 😊. I haven’t been active on my blog and social media since July. The reason is we’ve just moved to a new city London, UK. I was completely occupied with packing-unpacking, hotel living, house-hunting, decorating the rooms & what not! But as I am back to blogging now, so expect new posts every week again. Anyway, today’s post is all about my latest beauty purchases!

Beauty Haul ~ Skincare, Haircare & Makeup || July-August 2019:

➤ SNP Aloe Vera Soothing Gel 97%:

‘This fresh moisturizing gel containing 97% aloe vera softens and soothes dry & sensitive skin, instantly quenching skin’s thirst’.

I love aloe vera gel and have been using it for ages. My first aloe gel was from Patanjali which worked really nice on my skin. But I wanted to try other aloe gels as well and that’s why I purchased Forest Essentials aloe vera gel too during my last India trip. Since I use aloe gel in my hair masks often, I needed something pocket-friendly and Forest Essentials one is pretty expensive for being NATURAL!! SNP aloe vera gel is affordable and feels nice on the skin & hair.

➤ Dr Marcola Aloe Vera Gel:

I have bought two aloe vera gels recently– one from Dr Marcola and the other is from the Korean brand SNP! I was buying some organic teas when I spotted this aloe vera gel at the store. The shop owner said he also uses this product and loves its moisturizing effect. So I thought, let me try it too!!

By the way, I noticed some natural and herbal products from brands like Andalou, Desert Essence, Dr Woods, Dr Wheatgrass at the store. If you are in Central Hong Kong, you can check out this shop. It’s small but stocks on some amazing stuff!!

I have been using this aloe vera gel and liking it too. I will come up with a detailed review soon on NBAM.

➤  Innisfree Sheet Masks- Ginseng, Rice, Hyaluronic Acid & Peptide:

Being a sheet-mask addict, it’s pretty hard to resist me from purchasing these soothing masks! I am already searching for Korean beauty stores in London to buy sheet masks. Oh, I am going to miss Hong Kong more for this reason too!

Anyway, this time I have purchased Innisfree Skin Clinic Masks – Hyaluronic Acid, Peptide and Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Ex - Ginseng, Rice. You may ask, why I don’t buy sheet masks from other brands? I have tried Etude House sheet masks, RUE sheet masks and other masks too. It’s not that I didn’t like them but somehow, Innisfree masks work great on my skin so I love their sheet masks.

➤ Nu-Pore Luxurious Home Spa Treatment Moisturizing Socks:

A sheet mask for our feet!!

‘Nu-Pore Moisturizing Socks provide revitalizing and soothing relief for tired, dry feet. This hydrating treatment is enriched with shea butter & aloe vera, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth’.

I have not yet tried these socks but am super excited 😍! 

➤ Soo Beaute Collagen Ultra Smooth Hand Cream:

‘Infused with Collagen, Baobab seed oil and shea butter, this intensive cream nourishes skin so it’s noticeably smoother after each luxurious application. Added Betain and Soybean oil help richly moisturize while adding suppleness and smoothness’.

My dry hands need constant care thus moisturizing hand creams are my besties! I have high expectation from this cream as it has all the hydrating agents in it. 

➤ NOW Jojoba Oil: 

We all know that Jojoba oil has tremendous benefits for skin and hair. So when I spotted this beauty at a & m US grocery store, I had to buy this oil. I am already using rosemary essential oil from this brand NOW and this jojoba oil is the newest addition. I have super dry skin and as of now, all I can say is this oil is my skin’s saviour!!

➤ Chap Ice Mixed Fruit Lip Balms:

Look at these cute mini lip balms!! These lip balms are free of mineral oil, Petrolatum and other harmful ingredients. They claim to soothe and moisturize your lips and what else we could ask for!

➤ Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara- 01 Extreme Black:

After the Estee Lauder advanced night repair serum, I was interested to try out other EL sample-sized stuff too. All I found was this teeny-tiny mascara at the SASA store! I haven’t yet tried this lash multiplying volume mascara so can’t comment on its performance. I will soon come up with the first impression sort of post on my IG account, so stay tuned!

➤ NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray:

I don’t know, why did I buy this stuff on a whim!! The weather of Hong Kong is almost the same as India so summertime means makeup melting, sweating, oiliness and all. Had I known that London summer is similar to India’s (especially my state Assam’s) November/early December kind of weather, I wouldn’t have purchased this MATTE finish setting spray for my combination to dry skin. My Makeup Forever Dewy Finish Spray is enough to do the job hence I regret this purchase now πŸ˜’!

➤ L’oreal Paris Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer Spray in Black:

Talk about shopping on a whim and here I present my next purchase- this root concealer spray! I have tons of grey hair and to cover them I use Shahnaz Husain Instant Root Touch-Up. I love it. However, I wanted to try something new, just for an experiment! So I picked this one in spray form which claims to provide temporary grey roots coverage and lasts until next hair wash!! Do I like this grey root touch-up product? Stay tuned for my detailed review on this stuff, peeps πŸ˜‰.

➤ Tresemme Heat Defence Spray:

I’ve bought this heat defence spray specifically for my travel days. Till date, all the hotels that I have stayed in during the vacations had hairdryers as part of their hotel amenities. But I never used them because I had no heat protecting spray/serum with me and I didn’t want to further spoil my already damaged hair. So now when I have this product, I am completely ready to blow-dry as well as style my hair with heating tools! Yeehaw!!!

➤ Sainsbury’s My Hair Matters Extra Firm Hold Hair Spray:

With the Tresemme heat defence spray, I picked this hair spray as well from the store. It claims to set your hairstyle and keep it in place all day. Let’s see, how it goes!

➤ BYPHASSE Cold Wax Strips for Face:

UPDATE 2020: Visit our 2nd blog “Everything Enchanting” for more latest updated interesting content! Henceforth, this NBAM blog will feature only natural beauty and lifestyle content. Check out our YouTube channel (ana everythingenchanting) as well 😊 

I have been struggling with facial hair growth for many years, all thanks to PCOD. So these strips are my must-haves, like an emergency kit!! I use these strips to remove hair from my upper lip, chin and forehead (I don’t do full face waxing). They are easy to use at home and effective too! I never faced any skin irritation using these hair removal wax strips.

Cold Wax Strips For Face & Delicate Areas

It comes with 10 cold wax strips and four Post-waxing relief wipes to remove excess wax and to soothe & soften the skin. The only thing one should keep in mind while using these strips is that post waxing, you should never remove the excess wax with water/soap/alcohol!! Always use a ball of cotton wool soaked in oil or the finishing wipes that come with the product.
