Shampoo: My own blended shampoo by Concoction
I was recently introduced to this brand Concoction – where you can blend your OWN shampoo choosing the fragrance and superserums to create your own shampoo. I am a little obsessed now… I will have to create several to take back to Dubai with me… My first blend smelt of Bakhour and included the Beautiful brunette and Thermo straight superserums – definitely something you should experience this month!

Primer: Benefit that gal – London edition
After living in London for the past 4 years – I pretty much consider myself a Londoner & this is one exciting year for London – Jubilee, Olympics… which is why I had to include Benefit’s London edition product in this month’s Beauty Buzz – The ‘That Gal’ stick – great rosy primer which gives a lovely tint. Adore the packaging too!

Hairstyling: TIGI bed head heat & humidity resistant serum
Summer is here – Humidity in Dubai and Rain frizz in London so bring on the frizz – ease products! This month I’m loving TIGI bed head’s heat and humidity resistant serum. It sure smells like summer, that coconut beach scent! It is also great for frizz and it somehow holds down all the frizz after applying a small dollop to the hair (make sure it is ‘small to tiny’ to avoid greasy hair!)

Foundation: Clinique stay-matte oil free foundation
I am a huge fan of Clinique foundations – learnt about this months ago but had to keep my mouth shut till it launched & finally this fab foundation is now available in London and the Middle East! Oil free (personally, I make sure all my foundations are oil free – I don’t want greasy skin after a long day) It gives that perfect airbrushed look, yet the cream is actually very light. Personal fave: I love the neutral 9 color.

Lips: LCN lipstick
a new lipstick from LCN’s ‘Colour me up’ collection in a fab color called ‘Delicious tango’ a great color, smells great, looks like a toy and gives my lips that dewy moisturized look. Tres fab!

Scrub: Yes to Carrots scrub
It is no secret I adore body scrubs – smell and the effect it has on the skin is all I really care about. This one is great because it reminds me of a body gel and scrub in one. It also smells fab – a mix of tanning oil and carrots – bring on the summer!

Face: TWELVE Bio Ideal Moisture Level serum
With the constant changes in weather here in London – you need to keep yourself hydrated and constantly moisturize your skin. I was recently introduced to this fab product by TWELVE Instant moisture and a great pick-me-up AND it also smells great (almond oil) – love.

Brows: HD Brows Brow beater
For a neat look, I like using a great brow product to keep them tame and tidy. Currently loving HD Brow’s brow beater – super easy to use and not messy whatsoever (which is the case with a lot I’ve tried!)

Deo and Wipes: Pitrok Crystal roll-on deo and wipes
As a person that is constantly running around with a back to back schedule, I love carrying Deo wipes and a tiny roll on deo in my bag that is effective and doesn’t have a super strong deo smell. I recently got introduced to Pitrok, and have been using it all month. Definitely worth checking out both the deo and wipes. You end up smelling fresh, sweet and energized!

Nails: Nails Inc Neons
You can probably already tell – I LOVE neons.  For the summer season, I love nothing more than neon nails with fab tanned skin! I’m loving Nails Inc’s neon colors for summer – they also have it in fab shades like neon blue and neon purple 🙂
