Today’s review is on a body product called The Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse. It is one of the new products from Arad. I was so hesitant on using this as my body is so sensitive and when I change products it would just set an alarm all over my body; and I could end up with red patches on my skin!
But due to the ingredients being so natural such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin extracts, those red patches I feared never showed up! I was so glad and so I tried it a couple of more times and here I am now being able to write up this review for you guys!
It is described as a “special soaping experience!” It comes out as a “cloud of fluffy soap” that should melt on your skin whilst cleaning and nurturing it. It is enriched with Dead Sea minerals such as Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E.
It also states that it may be applied to all skin types.
How did I apply it?
Well, on the bottle it states that you have to shake it and then turn it upside down and simply push the handle. Honestly, it truly did come out like a cloud of fluffy soap!! You could compare it to when you push out whipped cream out of the can! Then you simply rub it all over your body and rinse.
The soap itself is so soft and when you glide it onto your skin it just feels so gentle on your body.
Now it does have a weird smell of men’s after shave when you put it on BUT this smell gradually lessens as you rinse it off your body. Therefore, if you do not like men’s after shave then do not use it as you might not like it!
For me personally it did not bother me!
My thoughts –
I can say that I have replaced my everyday body wash with this product as I am so happy with it! Not only does my body not flare up into red patches of mayhem but my skin feels so smooth and soft!
I definitely recommend this product, and it is a perfect product to use when you are having that spa day in the comfort of your own home; while taking a bubble bath to get rid of all the stress of the week!
Have you tried any of the Arad products? What do you think of this product?
So yes today is Thursday and I am a little tardy – by a day – of posting a blog post related to the video that I uploaded on Youtube yesterday!
But …. it still is here just 24 hours later.
Today’s video is the Sweet SparkleUnboxing of the December box! I know I am so late having already received the January box. Although I am thinking that for the January box I will only do a blog post related to it!
The December box is a definite hit for me unlike the November one.
I simply love what we received and am so happy with what we got!
The products mentioned –
L.A Colors Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette
Now the colour choice is a good one as you can create a number of looks with them. However, they are not at all easy going when it comes to blending them out!
J.cat Beauty Lovestruck Blusher & Bronzer in Babe
I absolutely love this blush and bronzer combo! I have reached for this product a number of times ever since I filmed this video. You have to be so careful to not apply a lot and try and blend it as fast as possible as it does tend to stick to one place if you apply it wrongly/too much!
Kasina Professional Fake Eyelashes – 100 % Human Hair with Tapered Ends
OMG!! You guys know my struggle when it comes to false lashes! But these didn’t give me that sense of impatience and anger rather the opposite! I used my lash glue from Ardell and simply applied them correctly in one try! SUCCESS!
LA Girl Flat Velvet Matte Lipstick in Runway
This shade is just gorgeous!! I love this so much !! Even though I do not like the shape of the bullet lipstick as it makes it difficult to apply I still love it nonetheless! You do have to be careful with darker colours as they can be sheer and patchy but this didn’t give me much trouble either! Love how it settled onto my lips!
Bella Piere Cosmetics Clear Eye liner Base
I don’t really know the exact job of this eyeliner but its supposed to make the job of applying eyeliner easier. Now I don’t know if it was because the black eyeliner was good but it was a piece of cake to do some winged eye liner!
Bella Piere Cosmetics Noir Eye Liner
As I said above, the eyeliner went on perfectly and I really love how black this product is! It isn’t sheer just jet black so to say!! I love it!
So as you can see the products this month were a cuppa tea when compared to the November ones!!
I can already tell you that the January products are a hit however I did not try them! But I really think I will like them!!
Let me know in the comments down below whether I should do a blog post about the January box or a video !!
Have you tried the Sweet Sparkle subscription? Have you tried any of the products?
Today’s product that I shall be reviewing is a Moisturizer. Specifically it is called the Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin.
Now I have combination skin however, it is mostly oily. I do get a little dry around my nose – that is mostly it. I also have acne prone skin.
The moisturiser is an extra light textured cream and is specially formulated to regulate the moisture of oily and problematic skin.
Arad’s Dead Sea Minerals in this product enhanced with other natural ingredients and calming extracts should help to reduce irritation and keeps the correct moisture level.
My thoughts –
I use this product daily in the morning. I cleanse my face as I do every day and night however, in the morning I would apply this right after. I apply the cream – as it is formulated like a cream – all over my face and neck.
It feels soft and gentle on my skin and as with all products that I have tried so far from Arad, it refreshes my skin.
There is one thing I do not like about this product and that is the smell. It has a weird scent that is not quite my favourite.
I do like the feel of my soft skin right after I apply this.
Even though this is for oily skin, where my skin usually gets dry i.e. my nose – it really hasn’t gotten dry, but still feels moisturised.
Therefore, I like the overall formula of this moisturiser apart from the weird scent.
Have you ever tried out this product? Did you ever try out a product from Arad?
I am so excited to share with you all today’s video! As you know I am a big fan of MUA – Makeup Academy.
They sell such good quality products, a variety of products and they are all so inexpensive!
Today’s video is all about 5 new shades from their Velvet Lip Lacquer range that they had released last Autumn.
The Velvet Lip Lacquer range include a variety of products. I also recently purchased two more which aren’t in this video. But maybe I could do a haul of what other new products I purchased from them recently!
The formula of these lipsticks dries to a complete matte look and doesn’t have a strong scent. They however, do not last that long although this varies with colours. Another distinction is that some colours – mostly darker ones – are extremely patchy so you have to be careful on how you apply them.
Also, it was my first time trying a blue lipstick and I have mixed feelings about it! It also took the longest to dry as the others dried quickly.
The shades are –
Posie – A cute light nude brown shade
Hustle – A dark pink/red shade
Firecracker – A fun pinky red
Splash – A not too dark or not too light blue – just in between – shade
Flair – A vampy red

Have you ever tried this range? What’s your favourite shade?
(I also gave a review of a product that I am still loving – the Facial Cleansing Milk – Makeup Remover )
Today’s post is another face product that I have tried around 3 times to be exact. And that is the Arad Facial Mud Mask.
The product states that the mud mask absorbs any excess oils and removes any dead cells and saborea that you might have on your skin.
It also unblocks clogged pores to allow all toxins and bacteria to find their way out.
It should also stimulate the skin cells to drink the natural rich humectants it offers; and contains calming plant extracts such as Chamomile and Aloe Vera and it is lightly scented.
My thoughts –
(Excuse the Jammies but like I said I apply this in the MORNING!)
I apply this mud mask 2 times a week. It states on the tube that for oily skin you can use it 2 to 3 times a week; whilst for normal to combination skin you can use it 2 to 3 times a month. So before using it make sure you don’t over-use the product!
I first cleanse my face and then I dry my face using my face cloth. Then I would simply apply the mud mask all over my face and leave it for 15 minutes. (On the tube it says to leave it for 7-15 minutes but I like leaving it for the whole 15 minutes so whatever the mud mask needs to absorb it does so!)
I then rinse with lukewarm water and I will follow it up with my moisturiser and my normal face routine. I like applying this in the morning and it does help me wake up more refreshed and prepped for the day!
It doesn’t have a harsh smell, which is good but the best thing I find about this mud mask is that it isn’t messy at all! I sometimes find that with some face masks when rinsing them off, I won’t rinse them properly and I end up with a dirty and muddy face cloth to wash! However, with this one it is not the case.
I find my skin to be so soft after and I notice that my pores (I don’t know if this is a good thing) but they do show more. But I guess that means the face mask is doing its job by cleaning those little buggers out.
I do find my skin to be cleaner by using these products and shall be trying out a new product this week. Therefore, stay tuned for more reviews on Arad products soon!
Have you ever tried any of these Arad products? If not, are you intrigued to do so?
