The Salt Secret

I hope the weather is treating you well. Hey, over 45°c is just too much, don't you think so? Anyway, I visited the salt secret a couple of weeks ago and it was certainly an unforgettable experience. I was completely frustrated and tired due to my exams. Hence, I had to relax my mind, so I went for a relaxing therapy. The therapy that I took was of 45 minutes and it was incredible. The hostess who invited me, welcomed me with open arms and she was extremely nice and friendly. I don't feel like visiting spas and salons because most of them are untidy and unorganized. I have this strange perception that most of the salons and spas are dirty as they don't wash their tools, and their chairs are full of dirt and dust. 
 
When I walked in, I was amazed to see the fact that it was squeaky-clean. The salt secret team takes good care of hygiene, they gave me a hair cap and covered my shoes with disposable shoe covers. How cool is that? The therapy room was undoubtedly a salty heaven, because everything was made up of Himalayan salt. The hostess, Rabia, asked me to inhale those salty fumes - I did what she asked me to do. Salt secret is not just for grownups, they have also made a separate kids area where my baby cousin had a lot of fun.  As I've mentioned before, I was in there for about 45 minutes, and then Rabia asked me to come out as my time was over. The level of my curiosity is way too high, and that's why I kept asking her different questions about the whole idea of introducing salt secret in Pakistan. And trust me folks, she patiently answered all of my queries.
 
I also spotted some unique products at the salt secret. They have salt soaps, salt masks, bathing salt, scented salt, salt tablets, salt lamps and etc. It’s very important for all of us to have a salt lamp. Salt lamps are effective only when they’re made up of pure Himalayan salt. Salt lamps are natural negative ion producers. Also, these negative ions are created by things like sunlight, storms, waves and etc. This is why people often report feeling refreshed after visiting a beach. All in all, negative ions have a positive effect on humans. The salt secret is offering a huge variety of salt lamps, and all of them are really inexpensive. I tried to capture everything for you guys. You need to visit this place as there are various benefits of salt. These salt therapies are best for the ones who have issues like sinus, asthma, bronchitis, stress, allergies, cold/flu and etc. The therapy room is fully air-conditioned and for those who cannot live without social media, they have Wi-Fi in there for your convenience.
 
Final verdict:
Unfortunately, we have limited options in Pakistan, but most of the European countries are well aware of salt therapies. I personally had a great time at the salt secret. I would recommend you all to visit them, since these therapies are completely organic and soothing. Also, they even gave me a goody bag which was full of edible salts. One therapy is of 45 minutes and costs PKR 2000/person. Do visit them for a change and say hello to Rabia on my behalf.

REVIEW: CAPRI SOAP

 


Hey people!
 
I hope you all are doing well. A couple of days ago, I received a beautiful basket from Capri Pakistan and it was filled with lots of amazing products. Capri is one of the oldest brands of Pakistan, and my mum is a big fan of their soaps. Unfortunately, I don’t like to use facial bars, because they make my skin dry and itchy. None of the soaps that I tried were good enough for my skin. However, Capri Pakistan’s aloe nurture extracts soap is definitely a game changer. I am a skincare freak, and I look for products that are suitable for acne prone skin. I started using this soap and I was completely shocked to see the fact that it made my skin better. Capri aloe nurture extracts soap is made up of rich ingredients like aloe, honey and milk proteins. All of these ingredients are really good for skin. Capri soap is specifically formulated for the young women of Pakistan, and is suitable for all skin types. All in all, it’s an ideal option for sensitive skin. Capri has the ability to help women flaunt their pride and honor. Also, Capri wants the young women of Pakistan to cherish their natural beauty and feel comfortable no matter what.

What I got in my basket:
  • 2 capri aloe soaps.
  • 10 tea light candles
  • 1 sweet-touch nail polish.
  • 1 soap dish.
Pros:
  • Inexpensive.
  • Easily available.
  • Best for sensitive skin.
  • Good quality.
Cons:
  • None 
That’s all for now! Thank you so much for reading, and stay tuned for more updates.
Until next time!

DIY: BLACKHEAD REMOVAL PASTE


Hey!

I hope you all are doing well. I'm back with a new DIY post for you guys. I am one of those mad heads who love to pop zits and extract blackheads. I absolutely loathe blackheads. And trust me folks, I’ve tried all kinds of pore strips and pore masks. Unfortunately, none of them worked for me, so one of my friends suggested that I should try a mixture of toothpaste and shampoo for the removal of blackheads. I was seriously shocked when I heard her saying this, since toothpaste is used for teeth and shampoo for hair. However, I was curious to see the result so I did exactly what she asked me to do. I made a mixture of these 2 products and applied it on my nose for about 5 minutes. It worked! It actually worked for me. All of my blackheads were gone, and then I gave her a tight hug for this amazing home remedy. If you have a super cute but dirty nose, give this DIY a go!

Here's what you need:
1) A toothpaste (Preferably Colgate, it's my favorite toothpaste.)
2) Shampoo (I like Tresemme, but you can choose whatever you want.)
3) Bowl (This particular bowl belongs to my mommy so if I am using it, I have to wash it clean as well.)

Mix a little bit of toothpaste with a drop of shampoo in a bowl. Apply this mixture for about 5 minutes and voila you're done. Do try this DIY and let me know the results down below. Also, you can reach me through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. It worked for me and it should work for you too.

REVIEW: MASARRAT MAKEUP'S SILK FOUNDATION

Hey guys!

I hope you all are doing well. Masarrat Misbah has recently launched her very own makeup line and all of her products are super affordable. Today, I'm reviewing MM makeup's silk foundation in shade porcelain for you guys. I've been using it ever since I got it. I wanted to be completely honest, so I didn't stop using it even though I prefer BB creams over foundations.

What it claims:
This weightless liquid formula "tunes in" to you skin's need, controlling oil where there is a shine and moisturize where it's patchy for a long wearing balanced look, with true coverage.

Packaging & Shade description:
I’m a big fan of black color. The packaging is extremely decent and classy. This foundation comes in a black box with a bit of golden here and there. The bottle itself is made up of glass, and comes with a black pump for our convenience. For me, this foundation is a steal at PKR 1100 since the packaging is up to the mark, and it doesn’t feel cheap at all. I own MM makeup’s silk foundation in shade porcelain. This foundation is available in 12 different shades with porcelain being the lightest and latte the darkest.

Texture:
Here comes my favorite part - the texture of this foundation is extremely creamy and it feels really soft on my skin. Some foundations are extremely watery and are hard to handle, but MM makeup’s silk foundation is nothing like that. I usually blend this foundation with my fingers and it works pretty well for me.

My experience:
This foundation claims to be weightless, and trust me folks, it actually feels light on my skin. The most amazing thing about this foundation is that it stays on my face, and I feel as if this foundation is specifically formulated for the residents of Karachi. Nothing stays on my face no matter how hard I try. The first thing that clicked me is its staying power. You need to have a foundation that is long lasting, and this one lasted 6 hours for me. However, it's a little bit thick for my taste. I don't use foundations, perhaps that's why I'm more familiar with the texture of BB creams and not foundations. The second most important thing I liked about this product is that it didn't cause me any skin issues. I like to use products that are less oily. I face a lot of skin issues in summer season, and I look for products that are reliable. Yes, it's pretty obvious that I don't want my skin to break out. This foundation gives a matte finish and is suitable for all skin types. Also, it covers and conceals all imperfections, and there’s absolutely no need of using a concealer. I’ve been playing with this foundation ever since I got it, and I even tried covering a black painted heart with it. It worked pretty well for me. Also, one pump is more than enough since a little goes a long way.

Pros:
  • Good quality
  • Inexpensive
  • Full coverage
  • Easily available
  • Weightless
Cons:
  • Thick
Final verdict:
MM makeup’s silk foundation is of really good quality, and the price of each unit is PKR 1100. You might like it if you have a lot of imperfections to hide, or you’re looking for something reliable and inexpensive. I’d prefer you all to give it a go! The entire range of MM makeup is available at Depilex salon, Bahadurabad. You can also purchase your favorite products from www.masarratmakeup.com.
