At the same time, Nars cosmetics has its must-have face palette that can take you through the entire year and their lip glosses are stunning. M.A.C Cosmetics has a new limited edition collection and if you’re a lover of perfect nude lipstick they have the best combo in this collection. I have linked some of the beauty stock-ups like Laura Mercier’s iconic powder + her primer is absolutely amazing to achieve that extra glow. Dior lip combo is a must-have for every lady and Lancome mascaras come in the best package ever.



When it comes to skincare products I only trust some brands and I was super excited to see them come with value sets that come in a great price range. I have linked everything that has a WOW factor when it comes to a skincare routine. You are getting the best value sets in my opinion. You can find the review for all these products on Million Idole.

Haircare & Tools


There are again quite amazing value sets when it comes to hair care products. I do have my eyes on some of them like the Sisley Hair Ritual Set & Oribe Texturizing Spray. Moroccan Oil has been essential to my haircare routine and hands down to the best dry shampoo that I have tried so far and now it comes in Jumbo size.

Home & Fragrance


Fragrances have a special place in my heart. I have some of my favourite scents here in value sets get them before they’re gone. I stock them for upcoming gifts for my mother and father and other family members most of the time. You all I have an obsession with Nest New York home scents and they have a great selection in this Sale.

I do have a couple of fashion items that I had my eyes on which include the Tory Burch Cross Body bag and Tom Ford Dasha Sunglass which I find both are in the best deals.


La Prairie | Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate

New in La Prairie is the Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate line. I was super excited to find the Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate Serum from this new collection from La Prairie. It’s a rich serum that revitalizes and enriches skin for a conceptional glow. The formula is designed to hydrate and bring that exceptional radiance to the skin. La Prairie is one of the brands that blows my mind every time I get to test their products. They’re luxury + high-end, and probably one of the brands with a high price tag but if you can effort it then it’s worth the splurge.

I have been testing the Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate Serum for the past 4 weeks to really see the results and I must say I am IMPRESSED! it’s unusual that I get super impressed with a skincare product easily but this one was first-time use loved for me. The texture is light, hydrates skin immediately and has that rich silky texture that I like in my serum but not oily. Using this serum for a couple of weeks now reminds me of the Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion that had almost the same effect on my skin. Many of my Instagram followers had noticed the difference in my skin after its continuous use and I received quite many compliments.
Using the Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate Serum I saw the results in two weeks, it instantly adds radiance to the skin and smooths out the skin tone over time. I do lots of skincare testing but only a few remain as my stables on my daily skincare routine and definitely, this is one of them. A little goes a long way with this serum, I do use a first enhancing serum with this so I can use less of this serum for a longer period. The longer use the better you see the difference in skin texture.

The Serum is designed to slow down the renewal process of the skin. The Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate Serum comes in luxurious heavy metal gold packaging and a drop-out pump dispenser. and refill packaging. I personally like to use this during my nighttime skincare routine especially since days are quite hot and humid nowadays, when I double cleanse my skin and it gets better treatment overnight when there is less pollution. I have also been loving to use it as the last step to my morning routine to add that exceptional glow to my skin. The formula does carry small golden particles that add reflection to the skin. I also loved to prep my skin with this serum for my makeup which creates a flawless canvas for my makeup looks.

Bottom line, I think its one of the best products I have used from La Praririe by far interms of its performance and quick and effective results. I have tested a great range of Skin Caviar line, I love it but the effects aren’t as powerfull as this one and the Plantinum Rare Cellular line. I have linked some of my favorite from the same collections below.

You can now find the entire collection available at all department store at La Prairie’s counters.

Glow Recipe | Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask & Avocado Ceramide Redness Relief Serum

New from Glow Recipe are the two new addition to their best-selling Watermelon and Avocado line. These two new additions are designed to help with skin concerns. Glow Recipe is a clean brand that I am getting obsessed over their product’s performance and quality for the price it offers. I have been testing both products for some while now and sharing my thoughts on them today.

Up first is the newest launch Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask which is a non-drying clay mask that is designed for all skin textures even dry and sensitive skin. It carries a nice whipped texture that doesn’t dry out skin like other clay masks.

This new Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask is a non-drying clay mask with hyaluronic-infused clay, BHA, PHA, and watermelon enzymes to unclog pores, smooth, and hydrate for softer, clearer-looking skin. It not only clear out the skin, but it also offers skin that boost of hydration it needs with its infused hyaluronic component.

This is one mask that you need in your skincare routine to clear pores, hydrate skin, and exfoliate for a brighter complexion, especially during the hot summer days.

I have been sent out the press sample before its launch date to try out and I have already used it two a week for the past two weeks on my nightly skincare routine twice a week for 3 minutes (I have a sensitive skin and most of the tines clay masks irritated my skin) and I have seen huge results on my skin’s texture and brightening my dark spots. It does tingle the skin which means the formula is working but if you have dry senstive skin like mine I wouldn’t suggest to leave it longer than 3 minutes. Wearing sunscreen almost every single day, I do feel it slightly gets into my pore which I was amazed at how this clay mask renewed my sensitive skin and pores gently. The formula contains micro-exfoliating blueberry seed powder that helps skin look clearer than ever. I would highly recommend to use a soft cleansing cloth with warm water to ease the removal of the clay mask + rinse well after. Skin does starts glowing right after the use.

Up next is the Avocado Ceramide Redness Relief Serum which been introduced at the begging of the spring season which was included in my recent skincare post under 10 Skincare Products that You Should Get Excited about this Spring but today I wanted to share my full thoughts on this amazing serum.

Avocado Ceramide Redness Relief Serum is a lightweight facial serum that is rich in avocado antioxidants. This serum is specially designed for dryness. Although it’s designed for all skin types I feel it’s a perfect serum that helps calm irritated skin caused by dehydration or weak skin barrier due to chemical peels or other extreme treatments.

From time to time give my skin a break from all the treatments and I find this is one of the best serum with very effective ingredients like Avocado butter and extract, Ceramide 5 and Allantoin that helps soothes and calm skin. The formula also carries rice milk that helps with strengthening the skin’s barrier, and if you have ever used the rice milk for skin concerns then you definitely know its effectiveness.
I loved using this serum right after the use of the Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask as well as any other monthly treatment I do for my skin. It immediately soothes the irritated skin.

Glow Recipe is definitely a brand with promising skincare products and growing its skincare collection quite well with new product additions. I can confidently say that it’s a brand that I have used most of the products and it’s always displayed on my skincare vanity along with my high-end skincare products. I have linked some of my all-time favourite formulas below.

You can find these new launches available at Sephora.
