My nighttime beauty ritual 🦄

Hello my lovely readers,

It’s been a while since I last posted on my blog and I thought the best way to make a comeback would be to share my skin care routine with you guys. I’m flattered to get so many requests about this topic and I’m happy to share with you today some of the products that have been helping my skin to get clearer.

At night, your skin is in repair mode and recovering from the day. Also, your skin temperature is naturally higher at night, which means that your skin is more receptive to active ingredients. With that said, it’s incredibly important to have a diligent nighttime routine to maximize your products and reap the benefits during your sleep!

Throughout the past year, I have developed a specific routine when it comes to skin care. A routine that I make sure to follow every night and which feels like a mini pampering session. The products change once in a while but for time being, I’ve been loving each and every product in my current skin care basket. I think I will stick around for a while before using anything new.

I had some really bad acnes last year which left many scars on my face. At some point, I tried to cover it every single day with loads of makeup but this only worsened the condition. It took me some time to realize how important skin care is and now I’m obsessed with taking care of my skin. You won’t see any major changes at first but I promise, it’s worth investing in skin care than covering the problem areas with makeup.

Enough blabbering, let’s get straight into the steps! 💖 💖 💖

Step 1: Remove any makeup & wash the face

I don’t know if anyone else is just like me but removing your makeup at the end of the day is SUCH a satisfying feeling. It’s also very very very important to remove it off, let your skin breathe and prep it for the skin care.

Depending on how much makeup I am wearing, I use different methods to remove it. Sometimes I go for an oil base remover as products like waterproof mascara and skin tints with SPF are harder to rinse off with a gentle cleanser. Also, oils are a great way to massage your face. Other times, I go for a gel cleanser when I’m wearing minimal makeup because it just glides off my face in a sec.

Next, I gently rub my cleanser in a circular motion on top of my skin. Washing your face with a cleanser after using an oil will ensure you’ve gotten rid of all the buildup from your day. I’ve been loving my soap-free cleanser from Avene. No breakout, it’s not harsh on the skin and helps with my oily mess of a face.

Step 2: Toner

Your next step should be a toner, especially if you have oily skin. toner is necessary because it takes the pH of the skin back to normal. Most toners are composed of active ingredients that are great for the skin to absorb in the evening. Toners add an extra barrier of moisture to your skin—they’re incredibly hydrating and calming.


I love using Rose Water 🌹as a toner but lately, I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water as a toner. It smells horrible but does wonders for the skin.

Step 3: Serum

Serum is one of my favorite steps. As with toner, there are many active ingredients in them and so many kinds on the market; you just have to find one that fits your skin type. I’ve been using this Pre-Serum Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection solution from The Body Shop for the past 2 months now and I LOVE IT! ✨✨✨

Tea Tree Serum

The solution has been helping my skin to combat the acne scars and blemishes on my face. My skin looks and is now clearer, smoother and it helped with reducing redness. My favorite part? The cold tingling sensation you immediately feel after applying it. I’m definitely going to get it again and again! 💖

Step 4: Moisturizer


Do I need to go into the importance of moisturizing? Finding a moisturizer that will really penetrate and add moisture to the skin is crucial. I found my miracle moisturizer last year and since then, I got two more of these babies. I’m not ready to try anything new for the time being because this one from Nanowhite (I get it from Intermart) which has been doing so good on my skin. With this product, I always wake up to the plumpest and glowing skin. The more you keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, the younger and more vibrant you look.

Step 5: Lip care

I apply Macademia lip balm from Yves Rocher . It has a creamy, balm-like texture and matte finish, and seems to moisturize throughout the night better than other lip balms I’ve tried.

Optional Add-Ons for Your Nighttime Skincare Routine

  1. Spot Treat – If one of your concerns is acne and breakouts, a step to be added into your nighttime routine may be to spot treat. I would recommend applying your acne spot treatment following Step 4 (Moisturize). From time to time I do break out (time of the month, dirty makeup brushes, too many cheat meals) and when this happens, I run to get my Sudocrem. I apply it on the pimple for two days and poof, it’s gone.
  2. Mask – Adding a mask to your weekly skin care regimen can be extremely beneficial because they deliver ingredients beyond the superficial layers of the epidermis. I recommend adding a mask to your routine 1 to 3 times per week following Step 3 (Tone). If you use sheet masks (which I do once in a while), you can also replace Step 4 (Moisturize) with your mask and sleep with it on.
  3. Exfoliate – To remove dead skin cell build-up and stimulate cell renewal, and an exfoliant into your skincare regimen 1 to 2 times per week. You can exfoliate in the evening after Step 2 (Cleanse).And that’s it for my daily bedtime beauty routine. Although these steps may seem excessive, after repeating it for a few weeks, you’ll see a major difference in your skin’s texture and overall look. Once you consistently perform your nightly skin care routine, you’ll find it difficult to go to sleep without doing it.Want to see me demonstrate all these steps live? Hit me up on Instagram, DM me and we could chit chat while getting the skin ready for the night.Endslate.png





Irresistible Tiramisu Recipe (NO EGG) 🍮

Hey loves,

Yesterday I tried for the very first time to make Tiramisu. Out of nowhere, since a few weeks, I’ve been wanting to make some. I’ve been looking for an easy recipe that doesn’t require too many ingredients and thanks to my cousin, I found the perfect one where you don’t need mascarpone cheese as it is not easily accessible in Mauritius (and is quite expensive). I tried and it was just MOUTH ORGASMIC. 😍😱 😵

I will be doing a large batch for Eid in a few days and I thought I would share the recipe with you guys because it’s very easy to make and tastes delicious! ☺️

2017-06-22 07.15.45 1.jpg

You will need: 🌸

▽ Philadelphia Regular Cream Cheese (300 g)

▽ Whipping Cream ( I use the brand “President”)

▽ Icing sugar

▽ Vanilla Essence

▽ Boudoir Biscuits

▽ Strong dark coffee

▽ Cocoa Powder

▽ Warm Water

That’s really it!

How to proceed : 

Prepare Filling 🌸

In a bowl, mix the Philadelphia cream cheese with a spatula. You can place your bowl under some hot water to make the cream cheese soften more quickly. The mixing part will also become easier.( I wanted to have the taste of extra cheese, so I added a few cubes of Kiri cheese).

Once these two are just combined, add your whipping cream until it holds still. If you are using an electric batter, make sure not to over mix because otherwise, your cream will turn into butter (which we don’t want).

Add icing sugar and the vanilla essence. Use as much as you like depending if you want the cream to be sweet or more cheesy (in moderation ofc).


Combine your coffee, 1 tablespoon cacao powder, and vanilla extract, in a wide bowl.

Let’s assemble, shall we?

Dip half of the boudoir VERY QUICKLY into the coffee, and line the bottom with it. You might find that you need to break a few into pieces to fit them in the dish or in individual glasses.

((P.s if your coffee is too hot, your boudoir will melt. Let it cool completely before starting this step.))

Spoon half of the filling over the boudoir and spread into an even layer. Then, dip the remaining biscuits very quickly into the coffee and arrange a second layer over the filling.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 6 hours.It is preferable to prepare it the night before.

Before serving, dust your tiramisu with cocoa powder/ milo/ coffee powder or any toppings of your choice. Leave out at room temperature about 10 minutes before serving.

Tadaaa!! ENJOY this delicious creamy dessert. You will never get enough. 💖


If you tried it, don’t forget to post a picture and tag me on Instagram!

Sending you loads of love my darlings, see you soon! 💖




COLOURPOP Lipstick\\ Swatches & Review ❤

Liquid lipsticks have been IN for quite some time now. While they look amazing, those matte liquid lipsticks can be so drying on your lips and you girls know that the struggle is real when it comes to that time of the day to take it off. Or, during lunch or dinner time when the middle part is wiped away because of the oily food that we all love. To re-apply is just another issue because it will end up looking like you have 10 layers of lips.

Enough complaining because I do love liquid lipsticks and it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to try the ColourPop ones but due to my laziness to go to the bank (which is like 2 mins away from my house) to deposit some money on my shopping card *priorities first*, I never had a chance to get me some. Finally, two weeks ago I managed to order the lot of 3 for $12 (excluding shipping) and to my great surprise, it came to me faster than expected.


Colourpop is a huge bang on social media with all their gorgeous products, their liquid lipstick line is one of the most popular. Lately, it seems that every brand is coming up with their own version of liquid lipsticks and I am a fan of them because it’s long wearing and it’s matte (discarding the cons I talked about above)  Everyone loves matte, right? Who doesn’t?


The box, the colors make you feel so happy. Packaging is pretty much simple and very straight forward to use; it came in a plastic tube with a silver cap and a doe foot applicator.


I got three shades and I’m pretty sure that I will be getting more soon. They are really pigmented. Unfortunately, I haven’t got the chance to test if it stays on when you eat and drink because I am currently fasting. Unless I wear it at 4 30 AM when I eat or at 5 45 PM when I break my fast (my family will think I’m crazy), I won’t be able to tell you how long it last. If you would like an update in the future, let me know 😉


The formula is thin that makes it lightweight on the lips, but don’t be fooled — this product has an intense pigmentation like I said before. At first swipe, it has a watery consistency that glides on smoothly and after a couple of seconds it dries down into an ultra-matte finish. Ultra matte in the sense that there is no moisture in this product, it feels powdery when it dries but it is weightless on the lips. It doesn’t feel sticky at all which is a plus point. It has a weird feeling at first but you’ll get used to it.

The mini prim one is from there Ultra Satin collection. It transfers very quickly and got on my teeth within a few minutes. I wouldn’t recommend you to wear it when you are going for an interview or a wedding ( You don’t want to have colored teeth in front of so many people) but it still looks really nice. As the name suggests, it has a satin finish which I thought I wouldn’t like because I wear only matte lipstick but it was a good surprise. I love wearing dark lipstick so I’ll definitely use this mini gift.

Thanks, ColourPop!


However, I don’t recommend you guys to buy their mini collection. It contains only 0.02 oz compared to the regular lipstick which contains 0.11 oz of product which is a decent amount in my opinion. You might be disappointed if you are going to spend $$ on shipping and wait for weeks to get your order as the mini ones are of a sample size.

Mini Prim

I did a swatch video on my Youtube channel and Gurl, it stained my lips especially if you’re using the dark deep or bright shades from the range. It’s pretty hard to remove – I used waterproof makeup remover and olive oil to remove it. Still, my lips were left with a light stain and I had to load up some pretty good amount of vaseline on my lips afterward to get back the moisture.

Lil tip: You need to prep your lips before using it. Run your toothbrush on your lips as a scrub, apply some moisturizer and let it soak into your lips because once you apply this lipstick it will not hydrate your lips at all.

Here are a few pictures of how they look on me –


Are they worth it?

In general, I like them a lot and I do think they are worth it. Shipping can be quite expensive for us Mauritians but very often ColourPop offers Worldwide Free Shipping and that’s when you should take advantage to get yours. This is the first time I bought lipstick online and I love all the shades. I went through some sad encounters in the past and I thought I would never buy lipstick without a swatch on my hands but the ColourPop lipstick made me change my mind. 

Have you tried ColourPop lipstick? Which one is your favourite?

Denim Shirt – Fashion Bazaar // Jeans – Woolworths// Boots – Woolworths // Bag – Local Shop at Port-Louis 

My favorite piece in this outfit is the bag. I was walking around Keenoo Square a few weeks ago when I found this boho style bag and fell in love with it immediately. Since I bought it, I’m wearing it almost every time I’m going out. It doesn’t fit a lot of things which is a huge problem for me since I carry my room in my bag (literally)! It’s a fun statement piece that  brings this extra touch to your outfit especially, on a gloomy and rainy day.



I hope you enjoyed this quick post. If you want to see more like this let me know in the comments or on Instagram.

Take care my loves! Until next time.


Not a beauty review but a REALITY CHECK 👽

Do you ever feel like everyone’s life is going on smoothly while yours has come to a halt?

Do you ever feel like everyone has their life planned out while you are stuck? You can’t figure out what to do next. While other’s are “progressing” in life and taking the other step of life happily, you are still figuring out your life? Do you ever feel like this?

Do you ever feel so much pressure (from your parents, friends, partner and even stranger) that even when you are sleeping [which is the moment when you are supposed to relax your mind and body] you feel like your mind might explode because you are thinking about so many things ( getting a job that you actually enjoy, getting that driving license after having a traumatic experience the first time, dealing with “adults” and worldly matters when you feel you are a kid, taking responsibilities – the next chapter of your life)


Do you ever feel so lost in your own thoughts that you can’t even hear the clock ticking near your head or the birds chirping? Do you wake up in the middle of the night at 2 AM and don’t feel asleep again because you start thinking about how will you earn your living when in your country thousands of graduates are unemployed? We’ll I might be one of them soon…

Is this what being an adult means?

I was not prepared for this chapter of my life. Just like after school, I was prepared for college and after college for the university, this time no one told me about this feeling. But, does anybody get the time to be prepared?

No one told me about this friend called insomnia, about these nights thinking about your life and nothing make sense.


While everyone might look happy on social media, no one actually is really ALWAYS happy.

Have a look at my Instagram page and you will think that I’m living the most amazing life. But deep inside, only I know the pressure that is making me feel like I will break down soon, the stress and the fear to fail, to disappoint the woman who worked day and night to make me reach where I am right now, to disappoint my own self, to take the next step, to start a new chapter.

Don’t get me wrong, I do have awesome days, weeks and months. I am grateful and blessed. I have a roof under my head, a warm bed, an amazing family, friends that everyone dreams off and a phenomenal partner. And still, it’s one of those moments where you feel lost, you are at a standstill and you don’t know which direction to take. So you wait, for guidance, for a sign…

These pictures on Instagram and Facebook are just a few seconds of my life that I choose to share because I was happy for a second. I didn’t share the hours of me crying because I’m scared of being unemployed because what I want to do is nowhere to be found where I live right now or worst situation would be getting a job that I hate (thus hating life).

Maybe I’m not the only one in this situation. But right now it feels like I am the only one whose LIFE SUCKS! Maybe it’s because I hide all these feelings that make me like a loser (when really I’m not because I’ve achieved a lot through this blog and on YouTube). At the same time, Real Life is not a fairytale. No matter how hard you work, at some point you will find yourself to be depressed about something, you will find yourself drowning in stress and no one will be able to help you because you hide this side of you from everyone and show only the happy side (I’m guilty of). Maybe the reasons will be different but you will feel like you are lost. 👽

“Hold on!”

People say it will only get better. I’m still in the phase where I’m stressed and on the verge of a breakdown. I’m still figuring out my future and planning to take the step for the new chapter of my life. I’m scared AF. Once I know if it gets better or not I will update you.

Until then, Hold on- Pray- Don’t give up- Stay Strong. Cry when you feel like crying, throw a tantrum when you feel like but just DON’T GIVE UP! ❤

Until next time…. xoxo






How to style a DENIM JACKET in winter w/ Sadyia ❤

photoshop2.jpgHi everyone,

The weather has been quite chilly these past weeks and apparently, winter – well, our tropical winter knocked at the door. In Mauritius, the probability of having days below 20°C is quite rare. Therefore, there is no use for us to go and throw out money on coats and jackets with a thick lining and faux- fur. A denim jacket is just perfect for us, islanders to be cozy and warm during winter. It literally goes with anything and I think it’s the perfect 365 days piece that everyone should have in their closet.

I think denim jackets are such a common term now that everyone is familiar with it! Denim jacket has been in style for so many years now and it appears that it has no intention to go anywhere anytime soon.  I am sure that every one of you owns a denim jacket. Maybe you stole it from your siblings or bought it from the money that you saved for so long. TBH, to get a good quality one is quite expensive and hard to find in Mauritius. While it was in trend everywhere else, I struggled quite a lot to find a denim jacket on the island. C’mon sweet Mauritius, time to step up the game!

I collaborated with the beautiful Sadyia who identifies herself as an Instagram blogger  (Be sure to check her Instagram: l.dina_ ) to bring to you these 4 looks at how you can style your (or how we style) denim jacket in winter, from heels to sneakers.


The business lunch

She created that look by styling her denim jacket with a pair of jeggings, a white shirt, and bomb white heels. To add a little extra, she added her leopard printed bag.




You can find the pieces:

Jeggings – Mango

Shirt – Boyfriend’s

Denim Jacket – Tommy Hilfiger

Heels – Mango

 Watch – Citizens Watch

 Pieces of jewelry – Bijouterie Haujee

 Brunch with the girls

I paired my denim jacket with a loose black dress and added the metallic shoes (I’m obsessed with) to add the edgy look. I love the color combination of black and denim so much!

Deets :
Denim Jacket: Zara
Dress: Fashion House
Shoes: Rose-Hill
(I’m sorry, I don’t remember the name)
Watch and bracelet: I Am

Bad-ass Look!

Denim can never go wrong with basics, right? Sadyia created this edgy look by pairing her denim jacket with a black body suit and black jeans. She wore a beautiful layered necklace to complete the look with heels.

Jeans – Mango
Bodysuit – Red Snapper
Jacket – Tommy Hilfiger
Shoes – A Gift
Watch – Citizen Watch
Chain – S&M
Jewelry – Bijouterie Hauje

Denim on Denim 

Create that edgy street style look by coordinating a black top with a pair of distressed jeans, a pair of white sneakers and your fav denim jacket.


Details :
Denim jacket: Zara
Top: Red Snapper
Jeans: Woolworths
Sneakers: Bata
Watch: I Am

My Eau Bleue Experience

Last year, while scrolling on Instagram, I came across of a breathtaking picture. Turquoise color water, waterfalls, and nature. Curious as I am, I needed to know more about this place. After searching for a while, to my great surprise, Eau Bleue, found near Cluny was only 20 minutes away from my place. How did I never heard about it?

Since then, my goal was to go and visit this place, to see if the color of the water was really this blue or maybe it was just Photoshop’d. Last summer, I didn’t make it as I heard that it was quite dried out and it was not worth going when it was so hot. Finally, Wednesday my boyfriend, Jibran and I made our way to it. We planned to go a few weeks before but for some reason, both of us were not having a good feeling about it. We listened to our guts and we didn’t go. However, on Tuesday we decided for sure that we would make it and on Wednesday, even if it was raining, at 11 AM, we were on our way.


There were no directions or any sign but you can’t miss the destination because, throughout the road, it is the only place where you will see a long line of parked vehicles. Just after us, two cars and a bus filled with people joined us. A few woods assembled together were the first step to reach the place where you see the turquoise crystal water. However, to get to the water you have to climb down the muddy path. Due to the weather on this day, the path was EXTRA muddy.  Jibran started to climb down and after a few steps he slipped and held on a branch. I felt my heart pounding away and the group of people (who clearly were not going to climb down) that were watching us started yelling: “Pas faire sa mamou! Ena la mort la-dans!” At that moment, I saw the yellow barricade police tape and immediately I thought about the boy who died a few weeks ago. I panicked and at that moment, I just wanted to go away. I told Jibran we are not going down and he made his way up to me. Even if he tried his best to reassure me that nothing would happen and after a mini argument, I still couldn’t take any risk for something to happen to him, to us.

I could see the disappointment on his face We took a stroll around and I calmed myself down. Finally, we came to the same spot and the huge and noisy family were not there anymore. I looked at the water from above and I could hear people laughing and splashing water. I wanted to go so bad! At this moment, a foreign man took the lead before us (after arguing with this partner) and he climbed down so easily. He slide himself and with the help of the branches he was down within a few minutes.

“Okay Okay, WE ARE DOING IT!” 

I think the way these people screamed and when I saw the yellow police tape, I had a panic attack. There were so many people gathered around us that it made me really uncomfortable and they were so loud in such a peaceful place. This foreign man was a tutorial for me and when I saw how he climbed down, I knew I could do it. Jibran took the lead and throughout the way kept on instructing me where to put my feet. He was so patient and amazing! At some point, I sat down and slid my butt on the mud. My clothes were dirty, my hands were just muddy, my white shoes were not brown but as I reached down, I was B L O W N away!




It was more beautiful than what I expected. The sound of the waterfalls was so relaxing, the color of the water was surreal and the water was so cold and so good, the calmness of this place, the fresh air on my face. I felt as if I could spend days here. The struggle to climb down was so worth it!


Enough of reading, the short video until you visit this little heavenly corner of our beautiful Mauritius!

Until next time!



Organic Hair???

Hi loves! It’s been a while but I’m back and with a precious little discovery that I made not
really long ago. I tried and liked! Of course, I had to let you know about it. Let’s begin!!!

Anyone with dyed hair out there? Struggling to find a shampoo that doesn’t fade your color? Well, look no further. I have found the best shampoo and conditioner for you!


It’s been a while now that I heard that the best shampoos are the one that is Sulfate free. And girl, let me tell you that it’s been a pain in the booty to find sulfate free shampoos or most of the time when I see a supposedly sulfate free shampoo, on the top of the ingredients will be sodium lauryl or laureth sulfate,  and ammonium lauryl or laureth sulfate. If you see any of these ingredients on the list, then put it down. These kinds of shampoos will fade out your color before you can even show off.



If you are like me and don’t like spending tons of money on shampoos and conditioners that are “made” for color treated hair, and supposedly don’t fade the color, then you need to go into a supermarket and buy Organic Care’s Colour Shield. It is a cheaper than L’Oreal, Pantene or any fancy brand shampoos and that will actually make your hair shiny and protect your colored hair.

I’ve been on a hunt to get a shampoo that will actually work for years and I tried everything and anything. And every time disappointed by them, I pass them on to my mom. I got to know about this shampoo from a friend of mine, Yusrah whose hair is just to die for (Girl, thank you for letting me know about this hair-saving product). As soon as I found out about the shampoo she uses, I just had to try it and test it.


The shampoo lathered up nicely and my hair felt pretty silky before I even got the conditioner on! The conditioner was nice and thick and felt like it was working. I was more than pleased with how my hair ended up when dry, it was really shiny and soft (but my hair is still dry because of all the hair dyes) And also, the scent is subtle but long lasting and a little exotic.



I find this shampoo not only leaves my hair clean & soft but it retains its color well. I use this in conjunction with the dry nourish ultra hydrating conditioner. It’s good value for money and a bottle lasts a long time. The only thing I don’t like is the flip top lid which doesn’t seem to close very well. I think we all would prefer to use more natural, organic and ethical product but sometimes it is hard to find an organic product that is effective, pleasing in fragrance and packaging, readily available and price competitive. I have been really blown away with these two products and they will grace my trolley regularly.


And what is your favorite shampoo? Let me know in the comment bar!!! If you are going to try this shampoo, I would love to know how much you liked me. Hit me up on Insta or in the comments down below. I love to be in contact with you girls and to see the little Islander family growing! ❤

Until next time (which will be very soon I’Allah)

Zainah Aka Diaries of an Islander Girl

Review: Mineral Attitudes ♥

Hey loves,

Let me start by saying that I have been a huge fan of  skincare products since I was about 14. I was introduced to it by my elder cousin who at that time was in college and used to have different type of face wash and face scrubs. Then, I discovered face masks when I got to know about the beauty world on YouTube. Since then, I’ve been testing everything…

I was kindly approached by this new company called Mineral Attitudes who gave me two products to try out and test. This company is quite new, based at Quatres-Bornes. However, this will in no way alter my personal opinion on each of these products. This review will be all my honest thoughts on personal experiences with each item.


I have been testing both for about a week now  and you’ll just have to take my word for it 😉


That said, let’s get on with it!

Ylang Ylang Face Scrub

The products came in a cute glass container (which I will definitely use again once I’m done with the scrub *wink wink*)

This scrub is fairly gentle and is mixed with quite a bit of olive oil (your skin will be shiny after using this) so you can’t overdo it. On my skin, the granules are neither too mild nor too abrasive but may prove little harsh for those with sensitive skin. It all depends on the abrasion threshold of your skin. Personally I like scrubs with granules that feel slightly rubbery. The granules here are kind of coarse (& is hella salty 😀 just in case some get into your mouth) and if not careful you can end up causing capillary tear offs.

To sum it up, the Face Scrub is an affordable buy (retails for Rs 250) that will suit majority of the skin types. With caution, the granules provide exfoliation and using the mud mask just after adds sufficient softness. Even though it leaves an oily film behind, using a mild face wash will work in its favour.

Dead Sea Mud Mask


What it claims to do :  It renews the skin cells, minimizes pores, cleans fat excess thoroughly and purifies the skin. It also calms redness, improves skin tone and texture and gives the skin mat appearance. It is based on natural mud, enriched with iron and minerals.

Retails : Rs 250-350

Verdict: Hmmm… So,first of all i didn’t really like the consistency of this. It wasn’t very thick..almost like a watery yogurt, making it harder to apply.
It also didn’t really feel like it was doing anything. I like a face mask where you can almost feel it working, this, again…just felt like i’d smeared a petit filous all over my face.
When washing it off, i didn’t notice any major differences to my skin… instead the muddy smell sticked to my face for quite a while.

However, my skin didn’t feel dry at all but felt just normal.
So, overall, i was pretty disappointed in this face mask, but then again, it might work better for someone with a different skin type to me (p.s I have combination skin).

I hope you enjoyed my review or found it somewhat helpful.

You can find their Facebook page here as well on their  Instagram page
& keep an eye out for promotions and sales as a lot of things will become reduced by quite a bit in November, and its worth checking up, to grab yourself a bargain!

Friendship and Food ❤


Yesterday, I went to Curpipe to meet my good/best friends Sumi, Fat, Ayesha and Anjum. Since we left high school which has been 3 years now we haven’t had a chance to meet up all together.In school, we would always hang out together. Each of us studied different subjects and we were in different classes, but as soon as the bell rang for recess, I would take my food and run to Sumi’s class (which was our meeting point) and make sure to spend this 15 mins break together. Every one of us took our own path after HSC but the bond we shared is still intact! Every time, we planned a meet-up, one of would be missing (Fat, you know I’m talking about you). This time I literally threatened her and made sure everyone knew I would be very mad if someone couldn’t make it. And THANK GOD! everyone made it! It was such a sweet day, full of memories and crazy laughter. As soon as we meet up, it was as if we were seeing each other after a day, as if we never ever separated. The ” Do you remember, we did that…. ??” and gossips about each others lives began while we made our way for some shopping. Just after, some stomach started growling. It was time to feed our bellies. We went to a cute little restaurant called Poz Kfe found near the Supermarket Sik Yen. Sumi and I have been there twice and we always had a good experience, and so we decided to have lunch there. We had the restaurant to ourselves and spent almost 2 hours chatting and gulp down our delicious Mauritian food. After that we strolled through the streets and we decided to go at one my favorite place to have some desserts, Anjum and Ayesha never went there and thus it was a perfect excuse for me and Sumi to have a little cheat dessert. It was so much fun, we tried different cakes ( Chocolate Oreo Cake, Peanut Butter Cheese Cake and my all time fav, Red Velvet Cake).We all had such a great afternoon satisfying our sweet tooth and catching up! I love days like these.
