My Take: Everyuth Naturals Ultra Mild Apricot Scrub

Everyuth Naturals Mild Apricot Scrub with Hydrogel Technology
The idea of a mild scrub excited me. Let me explain why. I have extremely oily skin which is prone to frequent pimple eruption if not taken care of properly. More so the pores on my face give me a scare every time I get in proximity of a scrub. Application of scrub usually leaves my pores wide open increasing the oil secretion thereby increasing the chances of pimples popping out. Basically, it feels that scrubs and my skin are not made for each other. Yet, I can spot those deadly blackheads propping up on my nose and chin. So when I got my hands on this ultra-mild scrub from Everyuth Naturals, it gave me a glimmer of hope. Did it work for my skin? Let’s find out.

The Application

Ergonomic tube design
I wet my face, and squeezed a peanut size quantity of scrub on my palm. After rubbing the scrub between my palms I applied it on my face with slow circular movements. The key for oily skin is to do this for not more than 30 seconds and with very gentle strokes. You cannot rub it hard into the skin as that may open up your pores excessively. You can rub it in a little bit more in the blackhead prone areas like the sides of the nose and the chin. I then washed it off with cold water without leaving it on my skin for long. The cold water helps in contracting the pores. An even better technique is to use ice cubes to gently massage the scrub off your face.

The Afterglow

Well I must say that after the application my face not only felt cleaner and brighter, it also felt soft and moisturized. So there were no dry patches or stretch on my skin. Instead it felt soft and smooth. The apricot granules (which smelled great) had helped in removal of the blackheads leaving the face clean and glowing. Although I noticed after a while I had the dreadful oil all over my face and had to wash my face with cold water several times to balance it out.


The Verdict 

Pros - 

1. Gentle on skin? Check
2. Moisturizing aftereffect? Check
3. Fits the pocket? Check

Cons - 

1. Does it work for oily skin? Probably not. Well but then the packaging doesn’t claim that this one’s specifically for oily skin

To give me a different perspective, I asked my husband (who is blessed with a great normal skin type) to try the scrub and the one point that stood out was the moisturizing after effect and the face was definitely left cleaner.

The BnB team spent an amazing day at the 5th edition of Fashion Forward, the Middle East’s definitive fashion platform. The four day long event was a bevy of talent with an amazing lineup of regional designers showcasing their designs on the catwalk along with inspiring talks and panel discussions led by global industry experts and fashion academia. In the midst of high fashion you also have The Garden, The Fashion Gallery and Fashion Café exhibiting an assortment of accessory designers, retailers along with social events and parties.

Decked up in our Blogger badges, cameras in hand we were ready to roll. Day 2 had a great mix of designers from the region: Aiisha Ramadan, Yousef Al Jasmi, Maral, Jean Louis Sabaji, Zareena, Starch Foundation, Hussein Bazaza. Each designer presented a different spin on their local traditions and cultures, marrying it perfectly with contemporary aesthetics. And although the event was propagated as a medium for exposing local talent, the designs would have felt right at home at any of the fashion capitals. Which is not surprising considering that these designers have dressed the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger, Paris Hilton, Lady Gaga, Shakira and more.

Fashion Forward Season 5
The venue was teaming with fashionistas sporting stylish and stunning outfits. Our heads were spinning with the snazzy assault on our fashion sixth sense by the time we were ready to go home.A tight schedule did not permit us to attend all the shows but we were more than happy to attend and cover the ones we could.

Ezra presented The Maria Clara Collection inspired by the gorgeous mestizas clad in their finest Maria Clara and the days of the Spanish occupancy in old Manila. The collection uses Piña, a fibre made from the leaves of pineapple plant mixed with silk to create a very organic textile, along with tulle, jacquard, crepe silk and neoprene. The whole experience was a mix of fairytale meets high fashion.

Jasmi’s collection was an absolute feast on the eyes with shiny works of art gliding down the runway. The collection inspired by the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, used beaded mesh in a blast of gold, silver, black and was probably the most daring of the collections showcased. The Kuwaiti designer, who began designing at the age of 17, displayed his signature flair using an enchanting mix of rich textures and lavish materials with a heavy emphasis on luxurious detailing and embellishments.

Unless you’ve been living under the rock for the last year, you know that perfectly contoured look is passé. Instead clean, “I Woke Up Like This” skin with a post-workout flush and imperfections peeking through have taken precedence over the “Made-Up” look from last season. Bonus for us gals since it simply means we won’t have to fret in the morning perfecting our skin.

Just-Bitten Lips

The Spring lip is rich, soft around the edges and supersaturated in the center. An effortless lip pressed on with a fingertip giving a stained just bitten berry effect. Try whatever shade that catches your fancy: pink, berry or red keeping in mind that you shouldn't be able to tell where it starts and where it ends.

10 Bobby Pin Hair Hacks to Master

Bobby Pin Hair Hacks
1. Prevent bobby pins from slipping through the hair by flipping the pin over so that the wavy side is against your hair.

2. Amp up any hairstyle using the exposed bobby pin trend and get creative with designs. Use either a triangle, chevron or hashtag pattern to add fun to boring hair.

3. Make your ponytail perkier by sliding a couple of bobby pins halfway inside the elastic and facing downward toward the crown of your head, fluff and flip over for a fuller looking ponytail that won't sag.

4. To make your braid look more organic & chic, tie the ends of the braid into a knot and then slide a bobby pin upwards into the knot to secure it.

5. Always wanted long lasting curls. Easy peasy. After curling a section of hair, roll up the section into a flat coil and pin against your head using a couple of bobby pins crossed over. Once all the sections have been pinned wait for them to cool before spraying them with hairspray and removing the pins for curls that are guaranteed to last.
