I was on the beach during my long week-end  and since my skin is really white I got burned like every year 

I was really annoyed so I was on the hunt for the best after-sun...


I had at home the Solarcaine Burn Relief Spray




SOLARCAINE is a pain relieving spray with lidocaine that cools instantly, it restores moisture to sunburned skin.

It cools the burn fast for instant pain relief. This gentle no-rub spray with lidocaine and aloe vera draws heat away from the skin to instantly cool and soothe sunburn while moisturizing to help reduce dryness. Also provides instant pain and itch relief from minor: burns, cuts, scrapes and insect bites. Continuous, one touch spray for quick and easy application. Fragrance free, alcohol free, non-stinging and non-irritating. Leaves no sticky residue. Dermatologist tested.


I kept on spraying it, but I didn't feel it was relieving me a lot, because I was really really red, so I searched for something more powerful.


I remembered that I used to use BIAFINE




BIAFINE is a water-based emulsion formulated for the dressing and management of superficial wounds, minor abrasions, dermal ulcers, donor sites, 1st and 2nd degree burns, including sunburns, and radiation dermatitis. When applied properly to a wound, BIAFINE provides an optimum moist environment for the healing process and isolates the wound from harmful germs and other external contamination.


Since my skin was so hot, the cream was disappearing right away. It relieved me, but I was insisting on having another pharmacist opinion.


The second pharmacist showed me this magical after sun moisturizing milk that soothes and prolongs the tan by BIODERMA  




Photoderm After-sun intensely rehydrates skin dried out by the sun, prepares it for further exposure and thereby optimises its natural anti-UV protection.


Its exclusive patented Cellular BIOprotection® complex provides optimum protection for the skin cells and prevents premature cutaneous ageing.

Enriched with emollient and soothing active ingredients, Photoderm After-sun decongests the skin after exposure and helps prolong the tan by curbing desquamation.

Photoderm After-sun’s light texture makes it easy to spread and leaves the skin feeling refreshed.


I really liked its soft texture, that is easy to spread and the smell reminded me of green tea, which is really relaxing. It's the product that suited my case the best, after one day my skin is relieved but still tanned 


Stay Safe under the Sun everyone!

I was once at the Bourjois stand in ABC Mall and I was checking the lip glosses. I saw a double gloss, I thought it was like the others, colored gloss from one side and transparent from the other.

But the sales lady told me that this one is different, it's a Smile Enhancing Gloss: Gloss and tooth brightening effect gel for a dazzling Hollywood smile!







A must-have lipgloss duo with two actions in one:


1. A tooth-brightening effect gel to apply directly onto the teeth:

Gentle on tooth enamel, its formula is enriched with blue coloured pearls and brightening agents for an instant result.

Designed for daily use and even better, it leaves a fresh breath sensation too!


2. A dazzling lipgloss to apply onto the lips formulated with “White Focus” pigments to enhance tooth brightness instantly.



An instant tooth-brightening effect and a dazzling smile!

Available in 6 shades, to enhance your smile and make your teeth look even brighter!





I tried it before getting my braces on, you just have to apply the gel directly on the teeth then you apply the lip gloss.


I loved the smell of the gel, it leaves you with a fresh breath and a confident smile



Have a nice week everyone

A new Star among Lancome is born, Hypnose STAR, with two icons Betty Boop and international supermodel Daria Werbowy 



Betty’s luminescent eyes and famous lashes are the perfect canvas to demonstrate the “Star” look of lush lashes and deep, intense shadows.




Lancôme creates a red carpet look for our star, with the versatile triangular shape of the brush that applies just the right dose of texture while simultaneously lengthening and separating lashes.


It has the spot light effect, a shade to dress eyes with a seductive shine, Noir midnight drapes lashes with intense colour like a luxurious evening gown.


Check the advertisement:




 Do you like Betty Boop? Have you ever tried any of Lancome mascaras?

I was checking Clarins Middle East Facebook Page last week and I saw these new Crystal Lip Balm.

I liked their shape, texture and color. They're transparent with a light of colour, so I had to go and check them LIVE.





So I went to ABC Achrafieh during the week-end and passed by the Clarins stand and there they were...shining in front of me!


I tried the Crystal Coral shade, I though that it would be transparent with a bit a glitter, but it turned out to be as bright as a lipstick!


The Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm Combines the benefits of every type of lipstick - the same shape and glide as a traditional lipstick, as transparent as a lip gloss, the same subtle colour result of sheer lipstick and the comfort of a lip balm."


It's composed of:

Gelled oils : for transparency, glide and comfort. It Helps prevent lip from becoming dehydrated.
And a "high tech" polymer : combines with gelled oils to ensure the consistency and transparency of the stick.


I found it really original as a concept, combining lipstick and gloss at the same time! What do you think?

I've seen Mascaras with double functions; Step 1 to combe the lashes and Step 2 to apply the mascara. But my latest discovery was a double sided mascara and each side is of a different colour 


It's the Sumptuous Two Tone Eye-Opening Mascara from Estee Lauder!




Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder, inspires a breakthrough mascara based on his secret backstage technique for big, beautiful eyes.

The genius is in the two contrast colors and two different brushes. 


Top Lashes
Big BrushComber™ adds bold black volume to upper lashes.

Bottom Lashes
Smaller MicroBrush adds eye-brightening, smudge-free color to lower lashes.

Now it's easy to create the most amazing wide-eyed look-it's runway proven.


It's  a Limited Edition Mascara available in three different shades:

- Bold Black / Rich Plum

Bold Black / Rich Blue

Bold Black / Rich Brown


So hurry up and grab the color combo you like

Today, in Lebanon like in all Arab countries, is Mother's day!

It's a day when we cherish not only our Mothers, our Sisters who have become Mothers, our dearest friends who have become Mothers, the Mothers of disappeared, all the MOTHERS....


Which is not the case I guess in Europe, my French friends told me that only children wish their Mother's a Happy Mother day! 





I started celebrating Mother's Day with my momy since Saturday with Silkor 


For Mother's Day, Silkor had invited several Bloggers ( Hanan Fawaz, Aline Chirinian, Elie El Turky, Monica Karam, Talar Demerjian and me  ) with their Mothers to have a mini-brunch and  an anti-aging facial treatment for the Mother's called "Vine Treatment".


Grape seeds and skins contain anti oxidants which have 20x the strength of Vitamin C and 50x the strength of vitamin E.

Resveratrol is a powerful anti-oxidant found in grapes, when used in skin treatments has proven to even out skin colour, improve elasticity and stimulate cell multiplication.


All the Mothers loved the treatment, they were looking all fresh afterwards. Meanwhile, the bloggers were enjoying the brunch, exchanging beauty tips.






You can have more information and check more pictures of the event and each Blogger by checking Silkor's Facebook Page, Mother's Day Tab. As you can also check Monica Karam's post with videos. 


I would like to share my sympathy today, with the Mothers of disappeared, who were celebrating Mother's day in ESCWA tent, DownTown, with the presennce of M.P. Sehnaoui and M. P. Moukheiber and a lot of NGOs (CLDH, SOLIDE, HRW...) Hope their cause will be solved soon.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had a deal from Makhsoom for Dashing Diva Salon. The First time, I had the Spoiled Diva Facial. This time, I had the Basic Diva Pedicure.




They have a special lounge for pedicure with soft pink couches and a special place for you to place your cup of tea, coffee...

They have a special kit for everyone, they write down the name on it so they can use it the next time. 



All their products (The nail polish, the nail polish remover, glue.... everything) are Dashing Diva products, that are sent to them from the US.

The sweet lady explains every step she's doing:

First step is soaking the feet in hot water for a while, then removing any existing polish from nails.



Then she file nails so that there are no sharp edges, nail edges must be smooth.

Then she applies cuticle oil so she can clip the dead tissue. Then by using a buffer, she gently buff nails.

Then she does a wet towel and scrub massage for the foot reaching the knee, it was sooo relaxing!

Now is the time for applying the nail polish of your choice and wait until they dry ...



Hope I described it well, the experience is much nicer than the writing, you really need to try it to see what I was talking about 


And after such a pampering morning, it was time for a pampering, sweet and refreshing breakfast from Brioche Doree





Hope you liked my post and stay tuned for my other posts on the other treatments that I'll be doing with Dashing Diva!

I was in ABC Achrafieh as usual checking new products in the Beauty department and I saw the Christian Dior  newest Mascara DIORSHOW NEW LOOK.





The miracle of a nano-brush with a unique lash creating effect. Combined with a high-precision serum treatment formula, it multiplies volume lash by lash, to infinity.


Crystal was so kind, and was giving me details about the NEW mascara. The brush is kinda small and thin compairing to other mascaras getting even smaller by the end to reach every last lash, making them appear instantly multiplied.


With its active ingredients, DIORSHOW new look provides a two-stroke lash care action for an impressive result.

Lashes are thicker and appear infinitely multiplied due to an execptional polymer with stretch and volume enhacing properties  and an intense colour effect is obtained thanks to an exclusive Dior Black Glass pigment. 

As time passes, lashes seem reinforced, appearing visibly multiplied.


I got the chance to try it, the texture is so soft, making it really easy to use and your lashes are transformed immediately

Available in three colors, Black, Brown and Blue.


Did you ckeck it? What do you think of it?

During last December, there was a deal for  Dashing Diva Salon  by Makhsoom at a very nice price, so I bought it.



It was a beauty treatment package that includes:

- Spoiled Diva Facial

- Luxurious Body Scrub

- Full Body Relaxing Massage

- French wrap Plus TM Manicure

- Basic Diva Pedicure



Back then I didn't know anything about Dashing Diva Salon, so I called to take my appointments, but it was very crowded and fully booked and they gave me my first apointment in February, that's after two months.

I had the Spoiled Diva Facial first.



I went to my appointment last Wednesday, they were waitng for me, and the lady who did my Facial treatment has the same name as mine  She was very sweet, explaining every step she's doing.

She started by cleaning my face with the makeup remover, because the face has to be very clean for the treatment. Then she scrubbed my face with a special scrub which is very soft and then she approached the steam machine to my face to help the pores open. She left it for about 10 - 15 minutes. She cleaned my face from the scrub afterwards, and took of all the blackheads. Then it was Mask time, she left it for about 10 minutes, cleaned it and applied creme on my face and around my eyes.


It was so refreshing, no more blackheads on my nosemy skin is so soft now and bright 

It was DEFINETELY worth the wait... Now stay tuned to discover with me the other  treatments!
